All praise is due to Allah, the Lord of all creation. May the peace and blessings of Allah be upon our noble Prophet Muhammad, his family, his Companions and all those who follow him correctly until the establishment of the Hour.

These are chapters from Shaikhul-Islām Abu Ismā’īl Al-Harawī’s, “The Book Of Forty Narrations In The Evidences Of Tawhīd” (Born 396H and died 481H may Allah’s mercy be upon him). This compilation is an amazing series of narrations in the establishment of the Tawhīd of Allāh, the Mighty and Majestic, especially in the arena of the Names and Attributes that has left the Jahmiyyah and their offspring such as the Ashā’irah and Māturīdīs dumbstruck just as Allāh has said:

وَقُلْ جَاءَ الْحَقُّ وَزَهَقَ الْبَاطِلُ ۚ إِنَّ الْبَاطِلَ كَانَ زَهُوقًا

“And say: ‘The Truth has come and falsehood has been vanquished. Surely! Falsehood is ever bound to be vanquished.’” (Al-Isrā 17:81)

Chapter 2: The Obligation of Giving Advice to Every Muslim

Abu Ismā’īl Al-Harawī (481H) with his chain of narration to Jareer Ibn Abdillāh (may Allah be pleased with him) that Allah’s Messenger (salallāhu ‘alaihi wasallam) said:

“I pledged allegiance to Allah’s Messenger (salallāhu ‘alaihi wasallam) that I would establish the Prayer, pay the Zakāt and to give sincere advice to every Muslim.” (End)
