From Aboo Sa'eed al-khudree, radiyallaahu 'anhu, &am the Prophet (sallallaahu alayhi wasallam) who said: 'On the Day of Resurrection a caller will call out that every nation should follow that which it used to worship. So none will remain from those who used to worship others besides Allaah, idols and false deities, except that they will fall into the Hell-Fire until none remain except those who used to worship Allaah, the righteous and the impious, and the remainder of the People of the Book. So the Jews will be called and it will be said to them: 'Whom had you used to worship? They will say: 'We used to worship 'Uzayr, the son of Allaah.' So it will be said to them: 'You have lied, Allaah did not take any wife, nor any son, so what do you want.' So they will say: 'We are thirsty, 0 our Lord, so give us something to drink.' So they will be directed: Will you not then drink? And they will be gathered and taken to the Hell-Fire, which will be like a mirage, some parts of it devouring others, and they will fall into it. Then the Christians will be called, and it will be said to them: 'Whom had you used to worship?' They will say: 'We used to worship the Messiah, the son of Allaah.' So it will be said to them: 'You have lied. Allaah did not take any wife, nor any son.' It will be said to them: 'What do you wants So they will be treated like the others, until none remain except those who used to worship Allaah (alone), the righteous and the impious. The lord of the Worlds will come to them in form closet to what they will except. Then it will be said to them; 'Why are you waiting? every nation has followed what it used to worship.' They will say: 'We separated ourselves from the people in the world despite being in need of them. and we did not associate ourselves with them, and we are waiting for our Lord whom we used to worship.' So He will say: 'I am your Lord.' So they will say twice: 'We do not worship anything besides our Lord.' So the point in question which is seen in both of the Aayahs and the hadeeth is that the messages of Moosaa and 'Eesaa, two messages comprising Tawheed and Eemaan were corrupted by the Jews and the Christians, by their worship of 'Uzayr and 'Eesaa and their saying about them. So because of this they became idolaters and Unbelievers, and these two messages due to their abominable action and their foul distortions turned into false and idolatrous religions, which it is not permissible to attribute to Allaah, nor to those two noble Messengers, even though very many of the laws from the prescribed law of Moosaa and 'Eesaa still remained.

So it will be clear to the reader that the 'Aqeedah of Tawheed is the relation to all of the prescribed law system of the Prophets, including the final Prophet (sallallaahu alayhi wasallam) like the relation of the foundation to the building. So the building cannot stand without the foundation, and it is like the trunk of the tree, it cannot stand without it, Or like the spirit with relation to the body, the body cannot live without the spirit. So the person with intellect must compare and judge all other calls with these intellectual and Sharee'ah proofs in order to see which of them are upon the way of the Prophets and which are far removed from that. Then I wish to add three examples which will increase our understanding of the prescribed ways laid down and commanded by Allah and that the organisation and order found in them is something required, and must be followed, and that it is not permissible to turn aside from it.

FIRST:THE PRAYER. Allaah's Messenger (sallallaahu alayhi wasallam) taught the Prayer by practical examples, and he said: 'Pray as you have seen me praying ' So he (sallallaahu alayhi wasallam) began by standing, then the takbeer, then the recitation. then the rukoo', then the sujood, and he did this in every rak'ah. He performed the second rak'ah in the same way, followed by the tashahhud, then at the end of the Prayer the final tashahhud, followed by salaam.

So if a Jamaa'ah now said that it is better in this age, or that it is obligatory that we should begin the Prayer with the salaam and finish it with the takbeer, or that we should say the tashahhud in the place of Faatihah and vice versa, if this Jamaa'ah did this, or any of these things, then would this Prayer be correct, and would it be Islamic?!!
