Types of Tawheed : Integrity of Islamic aqeedah

Tawheed is the core, fundamental belief segment in Islam and basically it means to reject any deity other than Allah the almighty. Any sane person would not claim partnership to His creation in this age and would stay away from paganism. However tawheed in Islamic aqeedah has a broader meaning, it is not just related to creation. Tawheed also means “one-ness” apart from its meanings related to concepts like uniqueness and integrity.

Tawheed in the universe : Holy Quran mentions about the unity of creation in the universe, thus suggesting the reader to contemplate about “one-ness” required to carry out such a uniformity in the creation process

On the earth are signs for those of assured Faith,

As also in your own selves: Will ye not then see? (Sura Adh-Dhariyat 51/20-21)

Sura Aal-E-Imran suggest the reader in the same fashion to contemplate about such unity in creation and praises those who take notice of amazement in it.

Behold! in the creation of the heavens and the earth, and the alternation of night and day,- there are indeed Signs for men of understanding,-

Men who celebrate the praises of Allah, standing, sitting, and lying down on their sides, and contemplate the (wonders of) creation in the heavens and the earth, (With the thought): “Our Lord! not for naught Hast Thou created (all) this! Glory to Thee! Give us salvation from the penalty of the Fire. (Sura Aal-E-Imran 3/190-192

Tawheed in politics :That would mean Allah is the sole rule-maker and governor, He is not just “up in the heavens” but also the Lord Almighty on earth

It is He Who is Allah in heaven and Allah on earth; and He is full of Wisdom and Knowledge. (Sura Az-Zukhuruf 43/84)

Tawheed in society : Islamic ummah is one whole body of a society and every Muslim should believe and act so, refusing the fake boundaries set by men under the name of nationalism.

Verily, this brotherhood of yours is a single brotherhood, and I am your Lord and Cherisher: therefore serve Me (and no other). (Sura Al-Anbiya 21/92)
