Knowledge is Light- Lesson 1

In the name of Allah, The Most Gracious, The Most Merciful

All praise be to Allah, and may the peace and blessings of Allah be upon His final messenger Muhammad peace be upon him.

Asalamu alaykum, dear respected readers, we hope you are well!

Today, in sha Allah, we will take a glimpse at the Islamic Creed, or ‘Aqidah studies.

Let’s get started with the topic entitled TAWHID – Islamic Monotheism


Tawhid – Islamic monotheism


In Islam, we are required to uphold Tawhid.

Tawhid is an Arabic verbal noun, coming from the verb wahhada, which means to unify.

However, when we use it in an Islamic sense, we understand that Allah is already One! He is Al-Waahid, Al-Ahad (The One), Al-Witr (The Indivisible).

What is meant by upholding Tawhid, is that we must affirm and maintain our understanding of the complete Oneness of Allah, in His Lordship, His names and attributes, and His right to be worshipped alone.

Following the spread of Islam, the scholars of Islam deduced three categories of analysis regarding Tawhid, in order to combat the deviations people began to develop. The categories are:

1- Tawhid Ar-rububiyyah (Oneness of Allah in His Lordship)

2-Tawhid- asmaa -wa-sifaat (Oneness of Allah in His Names and Attributes)

3-Tawhid- Al-‘ibaadah (Oneness of Allah in His worship)

In sha Allah, we will take a closer look at these.

Stay tuned!

May Allah forgive our errors for He is The Forbearing. ameen
