Whoever guides Allah cannot mislead anyone


"The worst sin is to associate something with Allah when He is the Creator." (Buhârî)

One of the most frequently treated and most important subjects in the Koran is "Tawhîd", monotheism. Since the beginning of mankind, Allah has sent prophets - starting with Adam (a) through Moses (a), David (a), Jesus (a) and finally the seal of all prophets, Muhammad (sws) - as admonishers and reminders. Their task is, among other things, to help people find their way back to the tawhîd or continue to hold onto it.

The main message and foundation of Islam is the doctrine of the unity of the Creator. "Lâ ilâha illallâh" (There is no god but Allah) is the formula by which this is attested.

In several verses and hadiths, Allah promises people the forgiveness of all mistakes made, no matter how many and how big they are, provided that they have sincerely understood and repented them. That is, the mercy of Allah goes so far that he can forgive everything.

Polytheism (shirk), i.e. the addition of other things or people to Allah, is the only exception here. This underlines once again the elementary importance of the oneness of God for Islam. To be equal to Allah is the only sin that is not forgiven.

One hadith - one thought

In our series “One Hadith - One Thought” we want to turn to one hadith every Sunday. The Arabic term "Hadith" means "story", "report", "history". It denotes those reports and narratives that were narrated by the companions of the Prophet. There is no section in the life of Muhammad (sws) about which the Muslims did not narrate hadith. The totality of the hadiths form the “Sunna”, that is, the practice, customs or tradition of the Messenger of God.
