No. Why would it be Shirk? - The perfect words of Allah (ﷻ) are not a creation; they are His uncreated word and they are of Him. Therefore, seeking refuge in His Word is fine.
Khaula bint Hakim Sulamiyya reported:
I heard Allah's Messenger (ﷺ) as saying: When anyone lands at a place, and then says:" I seek refuge in the Perfect Word of Allah from the ...
Three assets is a book he wrote. It's also called "The Three Fundamentals" =
Knowledge of Allah
Existence, oneness and worshiping Allah alone
Knowledge of Islam with evidences
Iman, Islam and Ihsan
Knowledge of Rasulullah (Prophet)
The seal of the Prophets, did not speak from his desires and everything he said was truth.
Obviously the importance of ...
The Kaabah is a building and not an image or representation of Allah, not a false deity, and not the intended object of worship, hence it is not an idol.
It does mark the qiblah: the direction faced when worshiping Allah on earth. And this has been ordained by Allah before the conquest of Makkah and even before the advent of the arabs:

No, Pantheism is in no way compatible with Islam. The belief that God is every single thing, is illogical, as well as it is not compatible with the Quran and Sunnah. If God is everything, then He is also weakness and can take on the weaknesses of everything, and this is illogical because God is all powerful and weak in no way like His creation. ...
Quran is among the most important things in Islam that makes it unique compared to the previous versions of the God's religion. In a Hadeeth the only verse that Solomon --peace be upon him-- knew from Quran was the verse [1:1] which he used in his letter to Belqeys, [27:30]:
في عيون الاخبار باسناده الى الرضا عن آبائه عن على عليهم السلام انه
قال: سمعت ...
While there are some decent answers here, I feel most of them are verbose and stray from the question. And it is an important question.
Islam is distinguished by the following principles.
There is a Creator: Allah.
That the Creator is unique, and that there are no other entity to be worshipped other than Allah.
While Allah has sent other prophets down in ...
Tawheed means to believe in the uniqueness of God. It comes from the word Wahdat which means Unity. The one who believes in the uniqueness of God, is called Mowahhid ("موحد") .
Shirk means to believe that God has one or more partners. The one who believes that God has partners, is called Moshrik ("مشرک"). For example the ones who believe in the God of ...
A person needs to believe in all the requirements of Islam to enter Jannah, including in the Prophet Muhammad ﷺ and the Quran, and anyone who dies while disbelieving in them will enter Jahannam forever.
إن الذين يكفرون بالله ورسله ويريدون أن يفرقوا بين الله ورسله ويقولون نؤمن ببعض ونكفر ببعض ويريدون أن يتخذوا بين ذلك سبيلا
أولئك هم الكافرون حقًّا وأعتدنا ...
Muhammad bin Abdul Wahhab Is the remand of the Da'wa of Tawhid have written many books in this topic like The Three Assets or The Three Fundamental Principes of Islam. In this book he about different topics:
1. Four Points (Issues) that every Muslim should learn
He (may Allah have mercy on him)says:
You should know, may Allah have mercy on you, that we ...
Belief in Allah is not sufficient to bring you into the fold of Islam. It must also be accompanied by the worship of Allah alone.
The disbelievers from the Quraish believed in Allah, but they were still coined disbelievers because they used to worship idols along with Allah:
قُلْ مَن يَرْزُقُكُم مِّنَ السَّمَاء وَالأَرْضِ أَمَّن يَمْلِكُ السَّمْعَ ...
No, I would not say so. The issue here isn't the three categories of Tawheed as a teaching model. Ultimately, the three category system is the derived from the Qur'an itself [nothing new added or subtracted] so there is nothing innovated or wrong as far as this categorization is concerned.
The only issue here is the response of some people who you imply ...
TL;DR: It seems awfully strict to consider it disbelief. For it to be disbelief, one would need to be convinced that God's ruling is incorrect, and have an intention of disbelief.
1. Al-Azhar University prepared The Response (pdf, URL), which discusses a fatwa in relation to this topic:
A question was asked about the rulings that contradict [the
The negation of
All praise is due to Allah
Not all praise is due to Allah
which is logically equivalent to
Some praise is due to something other than Allah
This is the latter statement in the question.
Its negation is not equivalent to
Some praise is due to Allah
which is logically equivalent to
"No praise is due to Allah" is false
You've asked some very fundamental questions and I would try and answer in brief, hoping that that wouldn't be the end of your quest for the meaning of life.
Nature of human
You probably meant "nature of man" here. In the Qur'an, man is described as the 'noblest' of God's creation. Man can ascend to the heights of the angels, and he can descend below the ...
This depends on the culture.
For example, If you live in Beverly hills. Riding a Ferrari is normal there. So you don't have to hide your Mercedes.
But if you live in a poor country. I would suggest you to hide your coke.
In other words, Be wise !!!
As for me, I don't like to go and tell people about what I am doing unless I am dont with it. Example ...
@Ahmadi's answer was good enough, only let stress again that the only phrase that volunteers a partly yes answer to your question is the term "manifestation", this whole world is only one manifestation of Allah (according to a Hadeeth by Imam Sadiq peace be upon him that you can find it in the book "مغز متفکر شیعه", sorry found only its [Persian version](...
