Then with regard to the world of prescribed laws, not system of prescribed laws can stand except based on belief system/creed ('Aqeedah). So if a system of prescribed laws has no 'Aqeedah, then it will be ruin and will not remain as a correct and sound system of prescribed laws. So, for example. the prescribed laws followed by Ibraaheem,: alaihis-Salaatu was-Salaam, remained for centuries amongst the Arab nation, then when 'Amr ibn Luhayyal-khuzaa'ee entered shirk into it, then it became an idolatrous system of laws and its reality changed and it became corrupted and ruined. This was because it was the 'Aqeedah of Tawheed which provided its firm foundation upon which it stood. From Aboo Hurairah, radiyallaahu 'anhu, who said: Allaah's Messenger (sallallaahu alayhi wasallam) said: I saw 'Amr ibn 'Aamir al-khuzaa'ee dragging his intestines in the Fire. he was the first one who introduced the practice of setting free animals for the sake of their deities.'~4 So Aktham said; 'Perhaps the fact that I resemble him' will cause harm to me, 0 Messenger of Allaah?' He (sallallaahu alayhi wasallam) said: ?Co, you are a Believer and he was an Unbeliever. He was the first one who altered the religion of Ismaa'eel. He created the idols, and established the practice of keeping the milk of certain animals for the deities. and of freeing animals for the sake of the idols, and of freeing for their idols the she camels which gave birth to female camels as their first and second deliveries, and of freeing for their idols male camels completing their allotted number of sirings. So after 'Amr ibn Luhayy corrupted the 'Aqeedah supporting the Sharee'ah which Ibraaheem came with and which was followed by Ismaa'eel, then it became an idolatrous religion, and the Arabs became idol worshippers, even though they continued to associate themselves and attach themselves to 1braaheem and his religion and his code of laws, and even though they still clung to a few remnants of what he came with such as honouring the Ka’bah, and performing Tawaaf around it, and making Hajj and 'Umrah, and standing in 'Arafah and Muzdalifah, and making sacrifices, and other acts of devotion to Allaah. Likewise the message of Moosaa and 'Eesaa was a message of Tawheed and a revealed system of laws. But when they lost their basis of Tawheed due to the saying of the Jews: ' 'Uzayr is the son of Allaah', then the saying of the Christians: 'The Messiah is the son of Allaah', then they became religions of Unbelievers, which it is not permissible to attribute to Allaah, nor to those noble Prophets,

Allah the Most-High, says

Meaning, Fight those who do not believe in Allaah, and do not believe in the Hereafter, nor make unlawful that which Allaah and His Messenger declare unlawful, nor obey the Allaah truly by following Islaam, from the People of the Book (Jews and Christians), until they pay the Jizyah tax in a state of being subdued and debased. Far the Jews said that 'Uzayr is the son of Allaah and the Christians said that the Messiah is the son of Allaah. That is merely the false saying of their tongues, like the saying of the idolaters before them. Allaah's curse is upon them, how can they deviate form the truth which is manifest.
