Shirk is the worst of all sins

by Ibtisam Elahi Zaheer

The worst of all sins which was condemned by all the prophets of Allah swt is shirk .Shirk means associating partners with Allah swt .Allah swt alone is to be worshipped and there is no obe who can be worshipped besides him .Similarly Allah is the only provider of all the provisions in this world and here after.No one besides him is capable of providing food money and shelter.He is the owner of death and life and He is the distributor of health and wealth.He has beautiful attributes and names .None of His attributes can be possessed by any of His creations.Some of the names attributed to Him when are used for his creations have totally different and limited meanings

All the prophets of Allah starting from Adam aliehis salam and coming down to last prophet of Allah swt Muhammad salal laho aliehi wasalam clarified misconceptions about tauheed. Ibraheem aliehi salam played a unique role for promotion of real concept of Tauheed and raised voice against idol worshipping and worshipping of heavenly organisms like sun,moon and stars.He challenged the oppressor Nimrod who claimed himself to be a god and unveiled his wrong claim by having forceful debates with Him.He was thrown into fire for his commitment with the cause of tauheed but Allahswt saved him from fire of Nimrod. Muhammad salal laho aliehi wasalam was leader of prophets and played the exceptional role for promotion of this great cause.Quran and Muhammad salal laho aliehi wasalam called people towards real concept of tauheed and refuted the worshipping of

1 Sun ,moon and stars

2 Jesus Christ

3 Two gods dualism

4 Angels and prophets

5 Graves

6 Jinns

7 Idols

Prophet Muhammad salal laho aliehi wasalam struggled through out his life for uplifting flag of tauheed and never compromised with polytheists of Makkah .He was beaten by them and polytheists did alot of propaganda against him and declared him a magician or a poet.Pophet of Allah swt was forced to leave his city.Prophet salal laho aliehi wasalam faced all these problems with dedicated heart and never compromised with them and till his last breath preached one ness of Allah swt and made it clear that Allah can forgive all sins except shirk and one who dies on shirk will never be able to enter Jannah.It is now the duty of Muslims to carry on the mission of prophet salal laho aliehi wasalam and promote dawah of tauheed with full force
