Shirk Among Muslims

Types Of Shirk Among Muslims 

It’s a common understanding among the Muslims that shirk is only done by non-Muslims. But No! It is not so. Shirk is also prevalent among Muslims. Below mentioned and explained are some of the common types of it which we find among Muslims.

  • (i) Going to the grave and calling upon the dead.
  • (ii) Wearing of Talisman (Taweez)
  • (iii) Democracy
  • (iv) Fatwa Shopping
  • (v) Palmistry and Fortune telling
  • (vi) Asking someone to intercede with Allah (SWT)
  • (vii) Riya Showing off
  • (viii) Excessive love of someone or something
  • (ix) Worship of Money
  • (x) Making your own nafs as a god (Worshipping your passions)

(i) Going to the grave and calling upon the dead.


Many people who profess to be Muslims, go to the Dargah and call upon a dead person in the grave and they think that by doing so they will have their needs fulfilled. What is the difference between that and worshipping an idol? It is one and the same thing!!

“But you cannot make those to hear who are (buried) in graves.” (Quran 35:22)

(ii) Wearing of Talisman (Taweez)


Wearing of amulets, talisman (taweez) etc. is also shirk Since you attribute it the power to protect you.

Isa ibn Hamza said: I went to see Abdullah ibn Hakim and his face was red due to high fever. I said to him: ‘Why don’t you use an amulet?’ He said: ‘We seek refuge with Allah from it. The Messenger of Allah (saws) said: “Whoever wears anything as an amulet will be entrusted to it”. (Narrated by Abu Daw’ud)

(iii) Democracy

Democracy means “rule of the people”. It is people who decide what is lawful and what is unlawful. What is halal (lawful) and what is haraam (unlawful). The sovereignty belongs to people and NOT to Allah. When we demand democracy, we deny that Allah is Al-Hakim (The judge) and we deny that Allah is Al-Hakeem (The most wise).

(iv) Fatwa Shopping

Some Muslims hunt for a fatwa which suits their perverted beliefs, and when they get it, they rely upon it and continue doing what they are doing even though its ruling is crystal clear in the Quran and the Sunnah of the Prophet (pbuh). Some examples of Fatwa shopping are:

Riba: Though majority of scholars agree that bank interest is prohibited in Islam and its very clear from the Quran and the Sunnah. Yet certain Muftis have given fatwas that it is permissible for Muslims living in the west to deal in interest.

Muslims normally hunt for such fatwas and continue dealing in riba even though its prohibition is crystal clear in the Quran

Hijaab: When France enforced the ban on hijaab, certain Muftis went on to say that its not compulsory for Muslim women in the west to wear hijaab! Many Muslims hunt for such fatwas and start following such Muftis, even though its commandment is in black & white in the Quran.

So Dear Muslims follow what Allah and his Messenger (SAW) say and stop hunting for fatwas to suit your perverted beliefs.

(v) Palmistry and Fortune telling


All sorts of fortune telling including palmistry and horoscopes are prohibited in Islam. Only Allah (SWT) knows the future and only he has the knowledge of the unseen. It is shirk because you attribute one of the qualities of Allah to human beings who do not have the knowledge of the unseen.

(vi) Asking someone to intercede with Allah (SWT)

Some Muslims ask Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) and also other saintly people to intercede with Allah. It is no doubt a shirk .It is prohibited to ask someone to intercede with Allah. He commands us to pray and supplicate to him directly. But certain people still intercede with Allah. Many Shia Muslims ask Hazrat Ali to intercede with Allah which is shirk .

“And your Lord says: “Call on Me; I will answer your (Prayer): but those who are too arrogant to serve Me will surely find themselves in Hell – in humiliation!”

(vii) Riya Showing off

Riya (Showing off) is that you do your deeds to show off to people and not to appease Allah.

Prophet (SAW) said: ‘The thing that I fear for you the most is minor shirk’. The companions asked: ‘O’ Messenger of Allah, what is minor shirk?’ He replied: ‘Showing off (ar-riya), for verily Allah will say on the day of resurrection when people are receiving their rewards, ‘Go to those whom you were showing off too in the world and see if you can find any reward from them”.

(viii) Excessive love of someone or something

Many Muslims beat themselves to commemorate someone who has passed away. They get dissatisfied with the will of Allah. Loving someone or something more than Allah (SWT) is also shirk.

“But those of Faith are overflowing in their love for Allah.” (Quran) 
The love for Allah is being obedient to him and his messenger (pbuh).

(ix) Worship of Money


Meaning halal or haram, the person doesn’t care, he just want to have it.

The Prophet pbuh said, “Let the slave of Dinar and Dirham of Quantify and Khamisa (i.e. money and luxurious clothes) perish (destroy) for he is pleased if these things are given to him, and if not, he is displeased (and he doesnt care if its halal or haram).”

(x) Making your own nafs as a god (Worshipping your passions)


A Muslim is the one who submits his will to Allah. If you submit to anyone else other than Allah, you have taken that thing or that person as a god other than Allah. It even includes your nafs. If you submit to your nafs and do whatever you want to do regardless of what Allah commands, then you have made it your god.

Allah says in Quran: “Did you see the one who took his own wishes and whims as his god?” 

Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 9 Surah Taubah verse 51:
Say: “Nothing will happen to us except what Allah has decreed for us: He is our Protector”; and on Allah let the believers put their trust.


Most of us including me would think that the above means that every little thing we do is shirk, and will allah forgive us or not etc?

The kinds that are mentioned above are true as references of the above are available in Quran & Sunnah but keep this in mind that if we do any of the above shirks mistakenly than it will be considered as a sin and one can repent for it. But if they become your habit & you do it again & again & even after knowing that its shirk than even one of the above committed can destroy all the good deeds.

May Allah Protect Us & Have Mercy On Us. Ameen

“Success Comes From ALLAH, And ALLAH Knows Best”

“QABRON KI PUJA” “Grave Worship”

Be Aware of “QABRON KI PUJA” “Grave Worship” (Shirk):

In many Muslim countries around the world people build Masjids on the graves of pious people, these are sometimes called “Dargah” or “Mazar” etc. And people go to those places and ask the dead person to give them a child or whatever they need “Grave Worship”. Now asking anyone but Allah (Subhana Wa Ta’ala) for anything is Shirk. Here we want to clear up that from the Qur’an and very clear Sahih Hadith that we are NOT supposed to build structures or Masjids on the graves of pious people or anyone else.

It is also shirk to make a vow to any other than Allaah, as is done by those who vow to bring candles or lights for the occupants of the graves. Please Don’t follow blindly what your parents and relatives did. Also try to know what our prophet (peace be upon him) and Qur’an says.

Lets analyze – In the light of Hadith: 

Sahih Al-Bukhari: Volume 1, Book 8, Hadith # 419
Narrated A’isha (R.A) Um Habiba (R.A) and Um Salama (R.A) mentioned about a church they had seen in Ethiopia in which there were pictures. They told the Prophet (S.A.W) about it, on which he said, “If any religious man dies amongst those people they would build a place of worship at his grave and make these pictures in it. They will be the worst creature in the sight of Allah on the Day of Resurrection.”

Sahih Muslim: Book 4, Hadith # 2116
Narrated Jabir ibn Abdullah (R.A) Rasulullah (S.A.W) forbade that the graves should be plastered, or they be used as sitting places (for the people), or a building should be built over them.
Note: This hadith makes it very clear that we are NOT supposed to build ANYTHING over them. May Allah (Swt) save us , as many of the Muslim today build strong plastered graves and this is against the order of Rasulullah (S.A.W)!

Sahih Al-Bkhari: Volume 1, Book 8, Hadith # 427
Narrated A’isha (R.A) and ‘Abdullah bin ‘Abbas (R.A) When the last moment of the life of Allah’s Apostle (S.A.W) came he started putting his ‘Khamisa’ on his face and when he felt hot and short of breath he took it off his face and said, “May Allah curse the Jews and Christians for they built the places of worship at the graves of their Prophets.” The Prophet (S.A.W) was warning (Muslims) of what those had done.

Sahih Al-Bukhari: Volume 1, Book 8, Hadith # 428
Narrated Abu Huraira (RAA) Rasulullah (SAW) said, “May Allah’s curse be on the Jews for they built the places of worship at the graves of their Prophets.”

Sahih Muslim Book 4, Number 1083
Narrated Jundub ibn Abdullah (R.A) “I heard from the Apostle of Allah (SAW) five days before his death and he said: I stand acquitted before Allah that I took anyone of you as friend, for Allah has taken me as His friend, as he took Ibrahim as His friend. Had I taken any one of my Ummah as a friend, I would have taken Abu Bakr as a friend. Beware of those who preceded you and used to take the graves of their prophets and righteous men as places of worship, but you must not take graves as mosques; I forbid you to do that.

Sahih Muslim Book 4, Hadith # 2121
Narrated Abu Marthad al-Ghanawi (R.A) Allah’s Messenger (S.A.W) said: Do not sit on the graves and do not pray facing towards them.

In the light of Qur’an: 

They belief that dead Awliyaa’ (“saints”) can fulfil one’s needs or help at times of distress, and calling upon them for aid.
Allah says (interpretation of the meaning):
“And your Lord has decreed that you worship none but Him . . .” [Al-Israa, 17:23]

Similarly, they call upon dead Prophets, righteous people and others to intercede for them or to rescue them from some calamity, but
Allah says (interpretation of the meaning):
Is He [not best] who responds to the desperate one when he calls upon Him and removes evil and makes you inheritors of the earth? Is there a deity with Allah ? Little do you remember. [An-Naml, 27:62]

Some of them have adopted the habit of mentioning the name of a shaykh or wali (“saint”) when they stand up, or sit down, or stumble, or encounter problems or distress, so they might say “O Muhammad!” or “O ‘Ali!” or “O Husayn!” or “O Badawi!” or “O Jeelaani!” or “O Shaadhili!” or “O Rifaa’i!” – or they may call upon al-’Aydaroos or Sayyidah Zaynab or Ibn ‘Alwaan.

Allah says (interpretation of the meaning):
Indeed, those whom you call upon besides Allah are servants like you. So call upon them and let them respond to you, if you should be truthful. [Al-A’raf, 7:194]

Some of those who worship graves walk around them as if in “Tawaaf” and acknowledge their corners or touch them, kiss them, wipe their faces with their dust, prostrate towards them when they see them or stand before them in fear and humility, praying for whatever they need of healing from some disease, or for a child or for help with some difficulty. Sometimes they call upon the occupant of the grave, saying “O my master, I have come to you from far away, so do not let me down.”

But Allah says (interpretation of the meaning):
The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said: “Whoever dies calling on someone else as a rival to Allah, will enter Hell.” (Reported by al-Bukhaari, al-Fath, 8/176).

Some of them shave their heads at the graves, and some have books with titles like Manaasik Hajj al-Mashaahid (“The Rituals of Pilgrimage to Shrines”), mashaahid or shrines referring to graves or tombs of ‘Awliyaa’. Some of them believe that the ‘Awliyaa’ are running the affairs of the universe and that they have the power to benefit or harm (Astagfirullah).

Allah says (interpretation of the meaning):
And if Allah should touch you with adversity, there is no remover of it except Him; and if He intends for you good, then there is no repeller of His bounty. He causes it to reach whom He wills of His servants. And He is the Forgiving, the Merciful. [Al-Yunus, 10:107]

It is also shirk to make a vow to any other than Allah, as is done by those who vow to bring candles or lights for the occupants of the graves.
Those who worship anyone but Allah or associate partners with Allah, Allah says the following in the Quran:

“And invoke not besides Allah any that will neither profit you nor hurt you, but if (in case) you did so, you shall certainly be one of the polytheists and wrong doers. And if Allah touches you with hurt, there is none who can remove it but He; and if He intends any good for you, there is none who can repel His favours which He causes it to reach whomsoever of His slaves He wills. And He is the Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful” [Qur’an, 10: 106-107]

Indeed, Allah does not forgive association with Him, but He forgives what is less than that for whom He wills. And he who associates others with Allah has certainly gone far astray. [Qur’an, 4:116]

“Verily whosoever sets up partners in worship with Allah, then Allah Has forbidden paradise for him and the fire will be his abode” [Qur’an, 5:72]


May Allah (SWT) guide us to the right path. Ameen.

“Shirk” The Unforgivable Sin


The greatest sin a person can commit against Allaah is shirk. Unfortunately, a lot of people cannot define what shirk is and how to protect against it. Mostly, they think that shirk is limited to idol worship. Whereas, it is more than that; shirk can be committed by physical acts, including grave worship, tying a black thread around one’s arm/leg etc.

It can be done by speech, e.g. taking oath by other than Allaah, or by elevating someone above Allaah by one’s speech etc. It can also be done by one’s thought or inner feelings like believing that other than Allaah can benefit or harm you; fearing other than Allaah etc.

No matter whatever way it is, Shirk is the number one cause for the people’s deviation from the truth.

{It is those who believe (in the Oneness of Allaah and worship none but Him Alone) and confuse not their Belief with Zulm (wrong, i.e. by worshipping others besides Allaah), for them (only) there is security and they are the guided.} [Surah Al-An`aam (6):82]

{Verily, Allâh forgives not that partners should be set up with him in worship, but He forgives except that (anything else) to whom He pleases, and whoever sets up partners with Allâh in worship, he has indeed invented a tremendous sin. } [Surah Al-Nisaa’ (4):48]

{Verily! Allâh forgives not (the sin of) setting up partners in worship with Him, but He forgives whom he pleases sins other than that, and whoever sets up partners in worship with Allâh, has indeed strayed far away.} [Surah Al-Nisaa’ (4):116]

Shirk : The Biggest of All Sins 

Shirk is the real problem facing this ummah.. So before talking about khilafah and politics, go to basics and understand tawheed to save yourself from the greatest calamity of Shirk.. ? please dont do shirk my brothers and sister. This is the sin which will not be forgiven by Allah. Understand what shirk is. ?
