LESSON 1: Oneness of Allah-azwj: (Teacher to explain to children)

  1. Our First Imam Ali-asws says: It is impossible to Describe Allah-azwj, who is One-azwj but that One-azwj which cannot be divided.
  2. Allah-azwj is the First for whom there was no ‘before’ so that there could not be anything before Him-azwj. Allah-azwj is the Last for whom there is no ‘after’ so that there could not be anything after Him-azwj.
  3. Allah-azwj stops the pupils of the eyes from seeing Him-azwj or (imagination) to (visualise) Him-azwj. Time does not affect Him-azwj. He-azwj is not in a place so as to allow Him-azwj movement (from one place to another).
  4. There is no one like Allah-azwj, for example, Allah-azwj is extremely close to something but at the same time is extremely far away from it,
  5. Mola Ali-asws says (about his-asws Lord-azwj): Allah-azwj is higher than any qualities that you could come up with, and Allah-azwj is higher than what can be imagined by His-azwj Also, His-azwj unique qualities must be ones He-azwj is pleased with and accepts with pleasure. I witness that there is no god But Allah-azwj, He-azwj is indivisible and there is no one equivalent to Him-azwj. I state that Mohammed-saww is created by Him-azwj to be His-azwj Prophet.[1] 
  6. The reciting of the ‘Salawat’[2] makes one worthy of countless blessings. So you should send ‘Salawat’ on your Prophet-saww, and join the angels in doing so.  (As Allah-azwj Says in Quran) O believers! Send Salawat on your Prophet, his pious and pure descendants and submit to his rights as they deserve to be:

إِنَّ اللَّهَ وَمَلَائِكَتَهُ يُصَلُّونَ عَلَى النَّبِيِّ يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا صَلُّوا عَلَيْهِ وَسَلِّمُوا تَسْلِيمًا (33:56)

(In Allahha wa mal ikatahoo yas aloona al-anabi ya aiyoo hal lazeena amano sulloo aleyhe wa salimoo thaslyma)

[1] Sermon of Wasila, Al-Kafi, Vol. 8.

[2] Darood, sending Allah azwj’s blessings on Mohammedsaww and his pure progenyasws.
