The Taghout (False Idol) is anything obeyed, followed or submitted to other than Allah (swt) or with out his permission. The greatest form of taghout today is the Man-made Law and the Rulers that implement it.
Imam Ibnu Qayyim al Jawziyyah (RA), d. 751 C.E. defined taghout as, "Anything worshipped (ma'boud), obeyed (muta'a) or followed (matbou) besides Allah (SWT)." Further elaboration of this important statement included the addition, "...and consents to it."
Allah (SWT) described how our relationship should be with the taghout in the Qur'an, [EMQ 2:256] "...whoever declares kufr (disbelief) in taghout then believes in Allah he has grasped the most trustworthy handhold that will never break (al-urwatil wuthqa)." Furthermore, it is recorded that Ibn Abbas (RA) defined ‘al-urwatil wuthqa' in this ayah as taking the meaning of la ilaha ilallah.
