An Answer Regarding Swearing by other than Allah & Prayer Towards the Graves
This book contains two previously unpublished rasaa'il (treatises) of Shaykhul-Islaam Ibn Taymiyyah - may Allaah have mercy upon him - clarifying the obligation of Allaah's Tawheed and the obligation of directing the 'ibaadaat (acts of worship) to Him Alone, and the prohibition of shirk. The first deals with issue of swearing (al-halif) by other than Allaah and prayer towards the graves and the warning of Allaah's Messenger (Sallallaahu 'alayhi wasallam) against that. The second deals with al-Istighaathah (seeking help, relief, and rescue in times of dire need and difficulty).
It was edited and checked by Shaykh (Dr.) Aboo Muhammad Fawwaaz al-‘Awadeeal-Madkhalee. And for further clarification and benefit, an additional section related to al-Istighaathah has been added from Ibn Taymiyyah’s Qaa’idatun Jaleelatun fit-Tawassuli wal-Waseelah.
