What is the most important aspect of Tawheed
Tawheed is the religion's central and single most important concept, upon which a Muslim's entire religious adherence rests. It unequivocally holds that God as per Islam (Arabic: الله Tawheed ) is One (Al-ʾAḥad) and Single (Al-Wāḥid). Tawhid constitutes the foremost article of the Muslim profession of submission.
What is the importance of Tawheed
Tawheed is the most important thing to everyone, so learning Tawheed also very important “Whoever dies and he knows that there is no righteous worship except to Allah, he enters heaven” (Narrated by Muslim, 26).
The first obligation ordered upon mankind was to fulfill the right of their Lord. For us to appreciate Tawheed we must understand some of it's virtues and the importance it has in our lives which will inevitably bring us closer to our Creator, Tawheed .
What are the three aspects of Tawheed?
Tawheed means Oneness and Uniqueness of Allah.
Tawheed can be divided into three categories. (i) Tawheed ar-Ruboobeeyah (maintaining the unity of Lordship). (ii) al-Asmaa-was-sifaat (maintaining the unity of Allah's name and attributes). (iii) Tawheed al-Ibaadah (maintaining the unity of worship).
What are the pillars of Tawheed
The first obligation upon every Muslim is Tawheed [to worship and obey Allah exclusively]; and the first pillar of Tawheed is al-kufr bit-Taaghuut, or to reject Taaghuut (false deity).
Tawheed is the Sole Right of Allah
Everything in this world has a right, whether it is our parents, our friends, our colleagues, our neighbours, the plants, the trees or even the animals, but we forget that the greatest right is the right of the One who created all of these things. We must understand and act upon the fact that the right of Allah is that we worship Him alone and associate none with Him. If we fulfill this, then our right over Allah is that He does not punish us in the hereafter.
Tawheed is the Very Reason for our Creation
And We created not the heaven and the earth and all that is between them without purpose! That is the consideration of those who disbelieve! Then woe to those who disbelieve (in Islâmic Monotheism) from the Fire! [38:27]
If the consideration of the disbelievers is that they do not understand this purpose, our consideration should be to understand our purpose is to worship Allah alone.
Tawheed is Part of our Natural Disposition (fitra)
Without a doubt, Allah does not oppress His slaves, rather we are oppressing ourselves by not recognizing Him. We should remember that all of mankind testified that Allah is our Lord, so on the Day of Judgement we will have no excuse.
Tawheed is the Reason Allah Sent the Messengers
And verily, We have sent among every Ummah a Messenger (proclaiming): ‘Worship Allâh (Alone), and avoid (or keep away from) Tâghût...’ [16:36]
Tawheed Necessitates Forgiveness
Even the one who does the best of deeds, may not be safe from the punishment of Allah if he associates partners with his Lord.
Verily, Allâh forgives not that partners should be set up with him in worship, but He forgives except that (anything else) to whom He pleases, and whoever sets up partners with Allâh in worship, he has indeed invented a tremendous sin. [4:48]
Shirk is the opposite of Tawheed and provided a slave of Allah does not associate partners with Him, He may shower him with forgiveness, as He is Oft Forgiving, The Most Merciful.
