Whoever actualizes Tawheed will enter Jannah without reckoning, and His statement
(إِنَّ إِبْرَٰهِيمَ كَانَ أُمَّةً قَانِتًا لِّلَّهِ حَنِيفًا وَلَمْ يَكُ مِنَ ٱلْمُشْرِكِينَ)
“Verily, Ibrahim (Abraham) was an Ummah (a leader having all the good righteous qualities), or a nation, obedient to Allah, Hanifa (i.e. to worship none but Allah), and he was not one of those who were Al-Mushrikeen.” [An-Nahl: 120]
And He said:
(وَٱلَّذِينَ هُم بِرَبِّهِمْ لَا يُشْرِكُونَ)
“And those who join not anyone (in worship) as partners with their Lord.” [Al-Mu’minun: 59]
From Hasseen bin Abdir-Rahmaan, he said: I was with Sa’eed bin Jubayr so he said: “Which of you saw the star which fell yesterday? So I said: “I did”, then I said: “As for me I wasn’t in Salaah, but I was stung.” He said: “So what did you do?” I said: “I did Ruqya.” He said: “And what made you do that?” I said: “A Hadith which Sha’bee narrated us.” He said: “And what did he narrate to you?” I said: “He narrated to us from Buraidah bin Al-Khasseeb that he said: “There is no Ruqya except from evil eye or fever” He said: “The one who has ended at what you heard has done well.”
But Ibn ‘Abbaas narrated to us on the authority of the Prophet ﷺ, he said: “The nations were displayed before me; so I saw a Prophet and with him a few followers, and a Prophet and with him one or two men, and a Prophet without anyone with him. Then a big crowd of people were raised to me and I thought that they were my ummah, so it was said to me: “This is Musaa and his people”, then I looked and behold! There was a multitude of people, then it was said to me: “This is your ummah, and along with them are seventy thousand who shall enter Jannah without reckoning nor punishment.” Then he entered his house. So the people started talking about those ones, “So some of them said: “Perhaps it is those who accompanied the Messenger of Allaah ﷺ”, and some of them said: “Perhaps they are those who were born in Islaam and didn’t commit Shirk with Allaah at all.” And many things were mentioned. So the Messenger of Allaah ﷺ came out so they informed him, so he said: “They are those who do not seek others to treat them with Ruqya, nor do they get themselves branded (Cauterized), nor do they believe in bad or good omen (from birds etc.), but they put their trust (only) in their Lord.” So ‘Ukaasha bin Muhsin stood up and said. “Call upon Allaah to make me one of them.” So he said: “You are one of them.” Then another person got up and said, “Call upon Allaah to make me one of them,” so he said: ‘Ukaasha has preceded you.”
In it are Masaa’il (topics)
The First: Knowing the levels of people in Tawheed.
The Second: What’s the meaning of actualizing it.
The Third: His praise for Ibraaheem being that he was not amongst the Mushrikeen.
The Fourth: His praise for the leaders of the Walis with their being free from Shirk.
The Fifth: The fact that abandoning (seeking) Ruqya and Cauterization is from actualising Tawheed.
The Sixth: That fact that the common denominator of those characteristics is Tawakkul.
The Seventh: The depth of the knowledge of the Sahaabah in knowing they will not reach that except with actions.
The Eighth: The earnestness for good.
The Ninth: The virtue of this ummah in quantity and quality.
The Tenth: The virtue of the companions of Musaa.
The Eleventh: The presenting of the nations to him ﷺ.
The Twelfth: That every ummah will be gathered by itself along with its Prophet.
The Thirteenth: The scarcity of those who answered the Prophets.
The Fourteenth: That the one who was not accepted by anyone will come alone.
The Fifthteenth: The fruits of this knowledge, and it’s not being deceived by numbers, and not having abstinence in the few.
The Sixteenth: The allowance of Ruqya if it’s from evil eye and fever.
The Seventeenth: The depth of the knowledge of the Salaf: “The one who has ended at what you heard has done well.” But rather such and such. So it’s known that the first Hadeeth doesn’t oppose the second.
The Eighteenth: The distancing of the Salaf from praising people with that which is not in them.
The Nineteenth: His statement: “You are from them.” Is a sign from signs of Prophethood.
The Twentieth: The virtue of ‘Ukaashah.
The Twenty-First: Using indirects/insinuations.
The Twenty-Second: His good-manners ﷺ.
