    Smile Categories of Tawhid

    Categories of Tawhid

    There are three main types of tawhid, namely Tawhid ar-Rububiyah, Tawhid al-Asmaa was-Sifaat, and Tawhid al-'Ibadah.

    Tawhid ar-Rububiyah (Maintaining the Unity of Lordship)
    In introducing this category of tawhid, Abu Aminah Bilal Philips writes This category is based on the fundamental concept that Allah alone caused all things to exist when there was nothing; He sustains and maintains creation without any need from it or for it; and He is the sole Lord of the universe and its inhabitants without any real challenge to His sovereignty. In other words, Allah reigns supreme over all that exists, has existed, or will exist.

    This doesn't just mean recognising the Lordship of Allah in terms of sheer power, but also recognising that Allah is responsible for all that happens within the universe, no matter whether we consider it good or bad. Everything that happens occurs by the will of Allah alone, not by luck or chance.

    The Second Category Of Tawhiid Is::

    Tawhid al-Asmaa was-Sifaat (Maintaining the Unity of Allah's Names & Attributes)
    This area of Tawhid has a number of aspects. Firstly, Allah should only be referred to according to what is written in the Qur'an, or how the Prophet Muhammad (SAW) referred to Him, as written in any of the hadith collections.

    Secondly, Allah must not be given any attributes of any created being. For example, there are numerous examples in the Bible where Allah is given human attributes, such as fatigue and regret.

    Thirdly, created beings should not be given any of the names or attributes of Allah. One example of this is a fortune-teller who claims to see the future, yet knowledge of the future is something which only belongs to Allah. This also means that to name yourself using one of Allah's names unless it is preceded with Abd' or Abdul, meaning slave or servant. For example, it is haram (forbidden) to name oneself 'Ar-Rahim' (the Most Merciful), but it is okay to use the name 'Abdul-Rahim' (servant of the Most Merciful).

    The Third Category Of Tawhiid Is: :

    Tawhid al'Ibadah (Maintaining the Unity of Worship)
    This area of Tawhid is probably the most obvious one, as it ensures that any act of worship is directed at Allah alone, and not towards any people or objects (for example, the sun). It was this message which every one of Allah's prophets brought to their people.

    I am not sure of understanding this title.

    does the 3 main category implies 3 different sects within tawheed itself?

    ^ I think Al-Mu'minaat is trying to say that there are three main types of Tawheed which are:
    Tawhid ar-Rububiyah (Maintaining the Unity of Lordship)
    Tawhid al-Asmaa was-Sifaat (Maintaining the Unity of Allah's Names & Attributes)
    Tawhid al'Ibadah (Maintaining the Unity of Worship)
    ..and each category talks about a different type of tawheed..
    Hope you understand..

    All 3 are sub categories- all 3 of them make tawheed.


    and were all to blame, gone toO far from pride to shame, were trying so hard, were dying in vain, were hopelessly blissful and blind to all we are, we want it all, with no SACRIFICE!!

    Lightbulb Categories of Tauhid supported with Quran

    TAUHID - (ISLAMIC MONOTHEISM)

    Tauhd (Islamic Monotheism) has three aspects:

    (A) Oneness of the Lordship of Allah; Tauhd-ar-Rubbiya: To believe that there is only one Lord for all the universe, its Creator, Organizer, Planner, Sustainer, and the Giver of security, etc., and that is Allah.

    (B) Oneness of the worship of Allah; Tauhd-al-Ulhiya: To believe that none has the right to be worshipped [e.g. praying, invoking, asking for help (from the unseen), swearing, slaughtering sacrifices, giving charity, fasting, pilgrimage, etc.] but Allah.

    (C) Oneness of the Names and the Qualities of Allah: Tauhd-al-Asm was-Sift: To believe that:

    (i) We must not name or qualify Allah except with what He or His Messenger SAW has named or qualified Him;

    (ii) None can be named or qualified with the Names or Qualifications of Allah; e.g. Al-Karm;

    (iii) We must confirm all of Allah's Qualifications which Allah has stated in His Book (the Qur'n) or mentioned through His Messenger (Muhammad SAW ) without changing them or ignoring them completely or twisting the meanings or giving resemblance to any of the created things [e.g. Allah is present over His Throne as mentioned in the Qur'n (V. 20:5):-

    "There is nothing like unto Him and He is the All-Hearer, the All-Seer" (V.42:11).

    This holy Verse confirms the quality of hearing and the quality of sight for Allah without resemblance to others, and likewise He SWT also said:

    "To one whom I have created with Both My Hands," (V.38:75);

    and He also said:

    "The Hand of Allah is over their hands." (V.48:10).

    This confirms two Hands for Allah, but there is no similarity for them. This is the Faith of all true believers, and was the Faith of all the Prophets of Allah, from Nh (Noah), Ibrhim (Abraham), Msa (Moses) and 'Iesa (Christ) till the last of the Prophets, Muhammad SAW. [It is not like as some people think that Allah is present everywhere - here, there and even inside the breasts of men].

    These three aspects of Tauhd are included in the meaning of L ilha ill-Allh (none has the right to be worshipped but Allah).

    It is also essential to follow Allah's Messenger, Muhammad SAW : Wajb al-Itteb' and it is a part of Tauhd-al-Ulhiya.

    This is included in the meaning, "I testify that Muhammad SAW is Allah's Messenger," and this means, "None has the right to be followed after Allah's Book (the Qur'n), but Allah's Messenger SAW".

    Allah said:

    "And whatsoever the Messenger (Muhammad SAW ) gives you, take it, and whatsoever he forbids you, abstain (from it)." (V.59:7)

    And also Allah said:

    "Say (O Muhammad SAW to mankind), 'If you (really) love Allah then follow me [i.e. accept Islmic Monotheism, follow the Qur'n and the Sunnah (legal ways of the Prophet SAW)], Allah will love you and forgive you of your sins.' " (V.3:31)

    Thumbs up Re: Categories of Tawhid



    Ukhti Misz_Muslimah:

    We make every attempt to provide evidence and sources for everyone who wants to research. It puts the heart at ease as did with Prophet Ibrahim (AS)

    2:260 (Y. Ali) Behold! Abraham said: "My Lord! Show me how Thou givest life to the dead." He said: "Dost thou not then believe?" He said: "Yea! but to satisfy My own undertaking." He said: "Take four birds; Tame them to turn to thee; put a portion of them on every hill and call to them: They will come to thee (Flying) with speed. Then know that Allah is Exalted in Power, Wise."

    Shukran Jazilan
