Importance & Benefit Of Tawheed

Tawheed is the essence of Islam and the mainspring of its strength. All other laws, beliefs and commands of Islam stand firm on this foundation. If you take it away there is nothing left of Islam.

Tawheed is the call of all the prophets to their people. And verily We have sent among every nation a Messenger proclaiming Worship Allah Alone and avoid all false deities. (Qur’aan 16:36)

Fulfilling tawheed is the purpose of man's life. And I created not the Jinns and Men except that they should worship Me. (Soorah Adh-Dhaariyaat Aayah 56). The word Soorah (pronounced soo-rah) refers to one of the 114 chapters of the Qur’aan and Aayah (pronounced eye-ya) refers to a verse within the chapter. The plural of Soorah is suwar and the plural of aayah is aayaat. The word Jinn here refers to a separate type of creation that live and die, have families, believe and disbelieve like men but who are fundamentally of a different physical and psychological nature. They are sometimes referred to in popular western writing as “genies” and they do possess certain abilities and attributes beyond that of humans. They are mentioned in several places in the Qur’aan and the authentic hadeeth.

By declaring sincere belief in tawheed, a disbeliever will become a Muslim. Conversely, a Muslim will become a disbeliever (kaafir) if he rejects any aspect of it.

By tawheed, we achieve salvation from Eternal punishment in the Hereafter, right guidance in this world, and forgiveness for sins. Allah states in the Qur’aan: ‘‘Verily Allah does not forgive associating partners with Him (shirk) however He forgives all other sins as He pleases.’’ (Soorah An-Nisaa, Aayah 48). The Prophet Muhammad sallallahu ‘alaihi wa sallam (sallallahu ‘alaihi wa sallam) said: The worshipper’s right on Allah is that He will not punish those who worship none besides Him. [Al-Bukhari and Muslim] (Al-Bukhaari and Muslim are the compilers of the two most authentic collections of hadeeth in existence – Ed.)

Whoever fulfills tawheed will be admitted to the Garden (Al-Jannah) in the Hereafter. The Prophet Muhammad sallallahu ‘alaihi wa sallam (sallallahu ‘alaihi wa sallam) has stated: Verily Allah has promised that whosoever does not commit shirk shall enter Al-Jannah (the Garden in the Heaven). [Al-Bukhari)]

It is the way to relieve peoples' sadness because true happiness can be achieved if persons realize tawheed within their hearts. They will also never feel psychologically enslaved even if physically captive.

It is the only reason for Allah’s pleasure and rewards. In another aayah in the Qur’aan Allah says: “If you reject faith then know that Allah is in no need of you and He does not accept disbelief from His slaves.” [B](Qur’aan 39;7/B] Disbelief is nothing but a manifestation of shirk which is the opposite of tawheed. That is, one who disbelieves almost inevitably breaches some matter of tawheed. All those who commit shirk (called mushrikoon and pronounced moosh-rick-coon) are disbelievers (called kuffaar pronounced koo-far the singular being kaafir).

The acceptance of all of one’s religious deeds is based upon tawheed. Allah states: Whoever accepts a religion other than Islam it shall be rejected by Allah and in the Hereafter he will be among the losers. (Soorah Aali-'Imraan Aayah 85). Islam is indeed the embodiment of the belief in tawheed.

Tawheed prevents man from eternally remaining in the Hellfire. The Prophet Muhammad sallallahu ‘alaihi wa sallam (sallallahu ‘alaihi wa sallam.) stated in an authentic report: Whoever dies and has so much as a mustard seed of faith in his heart shall enter Al-Jannah. Faith here signifies a correct belief in Allah and His Messenger Muhammad sallallahu ‘alaihi wa sallam (sallallahu ‘alaihi wa sallam) and all that they instructed, commanded and prohibited for mankind.
