As-Salaam alaikum, Ayat 116 of Surat Nisa'i in the Holy Qur'an reads:-- "Allah forgives not [the sin of] joining other gods with Him; but He forgives whom He pleases other sins than this: one who joins other gods with Allah, has strayed far, far away (from the Right Path)." If there is slackness in deeds and worship, this may be forgiven. The creed of the Ahl-as-Sunnah Wal-Jama'ah is the way and belief we must tenaciously hold on to. And putting it briefly, this creed is to know and believe that Allah Ta'ala exists with His Eternal Person. He has Created, made existent and let come out of non-existence everything other than He. He existed endlessly. He is eternal in the past... that is He always existed. There cannot be non existence before His existence. Everything other than He was non existent. He created all afterwards. He who is eternal in the past will also be eternal in the future, everlastingly. He who is of recent occurrence and created will be transient; that is, he will cease to exist. Allahu, Tabaraka Wa Ta'ala, is One... that is, only His existence is necessary. Only He, again, is worth being worshipped. Existence of all things other than He is unnecessary. It makes no difference whether or not they exist. Nothing other than He is worth being worshipped. ALLAHU AKBAR!!!
