Shaykh Yasir Qadhi illustrates explicitly the meaning in the chapters 42, 43, 44, 45, 46 and 47 of the book – Kitaab At Tawheed.
Chapter 42 deals with explanation of the verse – Allah the Almighty said: “Do not set up rivals (Al-Andad) unto Allah (in worship) while you know (that He Alone has the right to be worshipped).” [2:22]. We realise that to swear by other than Allah truthfully (believing such) is a far greater sin than to swear by Allah to a lie and also fathom the difference between the conjunctions ‘wa’ (and) and ‘thumma’ (then).
Chapter 43 acquaints us with what is said about the One who is not satisfied with an Oath taken by Allah’s Name. It is impermissible to make an oath by forefathers and also find out about what is the punishment for the person who is not satisfied by an oath made by Allah’s Name.
Chapter 44 is about – How it is to say “What Allah may will and you ﷺ may will” and a comprehensive explanation is provided for the same.
Chapter 45 deals with people who curse Time being the ones who have wronged Allah. The topics of importance here are – cursing Ad-Dahr (the time) is forbidden and abusing Ad-Dahr (the time) is in fact to wrong Allah.
Chapter 46 talks about how it is to be named “Judge of Judges” and the likes of it. Prohibition of applying the title ‘king of kings’ to anyone is a must and also that Allah is the Most High and Unapproachable in His Greatness and without any shortcomings (unlike the worldly ‘king’).
Chapter 47 deals with the need for respect for the Names of Allah and changing one’s name for the sake of that.
