What is Tawheed?

Word Tawheed came from the Arabic word wahhada or wahid, or one. There are three categories of Tawheed.

1)Tawheed-e-Rububbeyah
Tawheed Rububbeyah means to maintain the Oneness of Lordship. The belief that there is only one God for the entire universe; the One who is the Creator, Organizer, Planner, etc. And He is Allah.

2)Tawheed-e-Uluhiyah
Tawheed Uluhiyah means to maintain the Oneness of Worship. The belief that no one has the right to be worshiped except Allah alone. (worshiping in all the aspects of course as we know)

3)Tawheed-e-Asmaa wa Sifaat
Tawheed Asmaa wa Sifaat means to maintain the Oneness of His Names and Attributes. Accepting the Names and Attributes that Allah has told us of and not adding nor twisting any or meanings of any.

Mentioned below are the examples of all three type of Tawheed:

سُوۡرَةُ الفَاتِحَة

ٱلۡحَمۡدُ لِلَّهِ رَبِّ ٱلۡعَـٰلَمِينَ (٢) ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ (٣) مَـٰلِكِ يَوۡمِ ٱلدِّينِ (٤) إِيَّاكَ نَعۡبُدُ وَإِيَّاكَ نَسۡتَعِينُ (٥)٥

سب تعریفیں الله کے لیے ہیں جو سب جہانوں کا پالنے والا ہے (۲) بڑا مہربان نہایت رحم والا (۳) جزا کے دن کا مالک (۴) ہم تیری ہی عبادت کرتے ہیں اور تجھ ہی سے مدد مانگتے ہیں (۵)


سُوۡرَةُ مَریَم

رَّبُّ ٱلسَّمَـٰوَٲتِ وَٱلۡأَرۡضِ وَمَا بَيۡنَہُمَا فَٱعۡبُدۡهُ وَٱصۡطَبِرۡ لِعِبَـٰدَتِهِۦ‌ۚ هَلۡ تَعۡلَمُ لَهُ ۥ سَمِيًّ۬ا(٦٥)٦

آسمانوں اور زمین کا رب ہے اور جو چیز ان کے درمیان ہے سو اسی کی عبادت کرو اسی کی عبادت پر قائم رہ کیا تیرے علم میں ا س جیسا کوئی اور ہے (۶۵)
