The rights of Allah (the almighty)
  Taleemul Islam

By: Shaikh Ashraf Ali Thanavi
Translation: lqbal Husain Ansari


The foremost right imposed upon the servants of Allah is that we owe to Allah Himself, who created and preserved, as a gift to His servants, blessings of many kinds. He brought them out of error to guidance. He gave them glad tidings of diverse blessings as a reward for following the path of right guidance.


The rights which the servants owe to Allah are as follows:


1 . To have faith in the existence and attributes of Almighty Allah according to the injunctions given in the Holy Qur'an and the Traditions (of the Prophet pbuh).


2. To adopt such beliefs, deeds, dealings, conduct and character as conform to the Qur'an and the Traditions and to give up such of them as conflict with the Qur'an and the Traditions.


3. To accord preference to Allah's pleasure and love over the pleasure of anyone other than Allah.


4. One should not harbour love or malice for anyone, and do good or bad to anyone except for the sake of Allah.
