The Shaikh began with Khutbatul Haajah.
My brothers in Islam today, Insha Allaah, we are going to talk about the issue of Tawheed and the importance of a Muslim knowing Tawheed, the issues surrounding this issue of Tawheed. He went on to say that the Muslim becomes aware of the importance of Tawheed when he realises that Allah (subhaanahu wa ta’aala) has sent all of His Messengers and His Books and He caused them to make jihad for this issue of tawheed. There is not a Prophet, except that Prophet came to his people and the very first statement that he said to this people was “worship Allah and do not take for yourselves any partners along side of Him.”
The Shaikh went on to cite an ayah from the Qur’an to prove this point and that ayah is the statement of Allah,
“Verily we sent to every single group of people a Messenger telling them to worship Allah and to stay away from the taghoot (anything worshipped other than Allah).” (16:36)
