Reflection to Surah ‘Al-Ikhlas’
“Who is Allah”?
Once upon a time, in a small village nestled between mountains and fields, three inseparable friends lived: Ahmed, Fatima, and Ali. Their days were filled with laughter and exploration as they ventured into the wonders of their surroundings. One sunny afternoon, while sitting beneath a large tree, they noticed an elderly man making his way toward them. His serene smile and wise eyes captivated their attention.
The old man introduced himself as Sheikh Mustafa, and he could sense the children’s eagerness to learn. He decided to share a profound story about the importance of monotheism and the rejection of polytheism, using the enlightening Surah Al-Ikhlas as a guiding light.
Sheikh Mustafa began, “Dear children, have you ever heard about the concept of monotheism? It means believing in the Oneness of Allah and recognizing that there is no deity worthy of worship except Him.”
Ahmed, Fatima, and Ali exchanged puzzled glances, expressing their curiosity. Sheikh Mustafa smiled and continued, “Surah Al-Ikhlas beautifully encapsulates the essence of monotheism. It teaches us that Allah is One, and there is nothing and no one comparable to Him. He is absolutely unique, with no partners, children, or equals.”
The children’s eyes widened in awe as they absorbed the profound teachings. Sheikh Mustafa explained, “Surah Al-Ikhlas invites us to reflect on the fact that Allah is eternal, and He exists independently, while everything else in the universe relies upon Him. He is the Creator, Sustainer, and Lord of all that exists.”
Amazed by this revelation, Ahmed, Fatima, and Ali began to understand the significance of monotheism in their lives. Sheikh Mustafa further clarified, “Polytheism, on the other hand, refers to the belief in multiple deities or associating partners with Allah. It is a deviation from the truth and leads to confusion and spiritual emptiness.”
As Sheikh Mustafa concluded his explanation, the children felt a newfound appreciation for the importance of monotheism. They recognized that embracing the concept of Oneness in their hearts and rejecting polytheism would bring them closer to Allah and fill their lives with purpose and tranquility.
Ahmed, Fatima, and Ali wholeheartedly pledged to recite Surah Al-Ikhlas every day, understanding that it served as a reminder of their commitment to monotheism. It became a cherished part of their daily routine, reinforcing their belief in the uniqueness of Allah and the rejection of false gods.
As the years passed, the trio faced challenges and uncertainties, but the message of Surah Al-Ikhlas remained steadfast within them. It reminded them to stay true to the path of monotheism, to turn to Allah in times of need, and to shun any form of polytheism.
The story of Ahmed, Fatima, and Ali serves as an enlightening example for children and adults alike, emphasizing the significance of understanding and embracing monotheism while rejecting polytheism. Surah Al-Ikhlas teaches us that Allah is the One and Only, deserving of our utmost devotion and worship. It instills in us a deep sense of gratitude, love, and reliance on Allah’s guidance and mercy.
So, my dear children, always remember the profound teachings of Surah Al-Ikhlas. Let it resonate in your hearts, illuminating your journey through life. Embrace the beauty of monotheism and reject any false paths. May Surah Al-Ikhlas inspire you to seek the Oneness of Allah and find solace in His love and guidance.
