OVERVIEW : The Importance of Tawheed ar-Ruboobiyyah

  • Tawheed together with all its categories is the basis of belief in Islam. All the Prophets of Allah ﷻ were sent mainly to call people to the worship of Allah ﷻ . Tawheed of Allah ﷻ is essence of the creation, existence and purpose of life for man and Jinn. Allah says in the Qur’aan:
  • Tawheed of Allah ﷻ , in all its categories, is therefore the purpose of life.
  • Tawheed ar-Ruboobiyyah is of such importance that it is mentioned in the Qur’aan many times. One such example is where Allah ﷻ says:
  • The importance of Tawheed, and therefore the abstinence from Shirk, is also evident in the hadeeth of the Prophet. In one hadeeth, narrated by Anas ibn Maalik, the Prophet of Allah ﷻ is recorded to have said,

عن انس بن مالك رضي الله عنه قال: سمعت رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم يقول يقول الله تعالى: يا ابن آدم لو اتيتني بقراب الأرض خطايا ثم لقيتني لا تشرك بي شيئا لأتيتك بقرابها مغفرة (الترمذي)

“Allah the Most-Honorable the Most-Majestic said, ‘O Children of Adam if you were to come to Me with the world full of sins and at the same time come without having commit- ted Shirk, I would come to you with the same amount of forgiveness”. [at-Tirmidhi]

  • Many other examples on the important position of Tawheed from the Qur’aan and Sunnah can be found. This clearly shows the importance of Tawheed.
  • Tawheed is the difference between belief and disbelief. A person that is not firm in his belief regarding Tawheed cannot remain a true Muslim.
  • Because Tawheed is so important, Allah has made it easy to comprehend. It is not difficult to understand. The idea of Tawheed is so clear that the young, the old, those who cannot write and those who cannot read understand it.

This means that people are power- less to do anything except if Allah ﷻ wants it to happen. The importance of knowing this fact is that people will not rely on anything except Allah ﷻ .
