Treatise: The Conditions of Laa Ilaaha Illallaah
By: Sheikh Mohammed Ibn Abdul-Wahab an-Najdi
The conditions of Laa Ilaaha Illallaah have proofs and the author has mentioned some of the proofs related to each condition.
Someone could say why does the statement of Tawheed (Laa Ilaaha Illallaah) need conditions? Hasn’t the Prophet (ﷺ) said:
مَنْ قَالَ لَا إِلَهَ إِلَّا الله دَخَلَ الجَنَّةَ
‘Whoever has said Laa Ilaaha Illallaah has entered Jannah.’
Yes, he did say that and there are also other narrations that aids the fact that the statement needs conditions such as:
‘Whoever says, Laa Ilaaha Illallaah sincerely from his heart...’
“Whoever says Laa Ilaaha Illallaah and disbelieves in that which is worshiped other than Allaah...”
So these are some of the different narrations that show that the statement of Laa Ilaaha Illallaah has conditions.
This also shows the fact that there are the hypocrites who also said Laa Ilaaha Illallaah but it did not benefit them and they found themselves in the lowest part of the Hell-Fire. This proves that the statement Laa Ilaaha Illallaah benefits some and does not benefit others.

Sheikh Saalih al-Uthaimeen رحمه الله was asked:
How does a father teach his children Tawheed?
‘He teaches them Tawheed just like he teaches them other matters of the Deen. From the best of what is in this subject is the book ‘The Three Principles’ by Sheikh-ul-Islam Muhammad bin Abdul-Wahhaab رحمه الله. If he makes them memorize it by heart and explains to them its meanings appropriately to their understanding and their intellects. Then there comes a lot of goodness from this. This is because this book is built upon questions and answers, and clear easy expressions, which have no complexity.
Then the father shows them the Ayaat of Allaah (His signs) so that he can practically implement what is mentioned in this small book.
For example, (about) the sun, the father asks, 'who created it?' Likewise (about) the moon, the stars, the night and day. You say to them:
The sun, who created it? Allaah.
The moon? Allaah, the night? Allaah, the day? Allaah.
Allaah سُبحانه وتعالىcreated all of these.

‘So verily the knowledge of Tawheed [the Oneness of Allaah] is the noblest of sciences, and the greatest in rank, and most obligatory to be studied because it is the knowledge of Allaah the Exalted, and His Names, and His Attributes, and His Rights upon His slaves.’
Shaykh Muhammad Saalih Ibnul ‘Uthaymeen
‘So this [tawheed] is the most fundamental principle, and the greatest understanding. It is the first thing that the writers should write about, and it is what the callers to guidance, and what the supporters of the truth should focus on. It is the most important science that they should grab onto with their molar teeth, and it should be spread amongst all societies, until they know its reality, and until they distance themselves from whatever opposes it.’
Shaykh ‘Abdul ‘Azeez Ibn ‘Abdullaah Ibn Baaz
