02. Benefits/Importance of Tawheed

with one comment

  1. It’s the purpose of creation / reason for our existence
    1. “and I created not the jinns and humans except they should Worship Me (Alone)” [Qur’an 51: 56]
    2. “And they were commanded not, but that they should Worship Allâh, and Worship none but Him alone (abstaining from ascribing partners to him), and perform As-Salât (Iqâmat-as-Salât) and give Zakât: and that is the Right religion.” [Qur’an Surah 98. Al Bayyinah ayat 5]
  2. Prophets were sent only to call to Tawheed (An- Nahl 36, and Al-A’raf 7:59 Nuh, 65 Hud, 73 Saleh, 85 Shuaib)
    1. ” and Verily, we have sent among Every Ummah (community, nation) a Messenger (proclaiming): “Worship Allâh (Alone), and avoid (or keep away from) Tâghût (all false deities, etc. i.e. do not Worship Tâghût besides Allâh).”…” [Quran Surah 16. An Nahl ayat 36]
  3. Scriptures were sent for this
    1. “He sends down the angels with Inspiration of his command to whom of his slaves He pleases (saying): “Warn mankind that Lâ ilâha illa Ana (none has the Right to be worshiped but I), so fear Me (by abstaining from sins and evil deeds)” [Surah An-Nah Verse 2]
  4. True/eternal happiness lies in Tawheed (No bitter effects, or regrets) in this world and in hereafter
    1. Sura 020. Taahaa Verse 124. “But whosoever turns away from My Reminder (i.e. neither believes In This Qur’ân nor acts on its orders, etc.) Verily, for Him is a life of hardship, and we shall raise Him up blind on the Day of Resurrection.”
    2. Sura 013. Ar Ra’d ayat 28: … Verily, [only] In the remembrance of Allâh do hearts find rest [happiness & tranquility]
  5. It’s the right of God upon creations, and when creations do that, they have a right not to be punished
  6. It’s the cause of entering paradise (Muslim Volume I, “Whoever dies while knowing La’ilaha illa-Allah will enter paradise”)
  7. It’s a cause of forgiveness (Hadeeth on a person from earlier people,…except Tawheed…)
  8. By the opposites will we know/appreciate the thing: When you learn the opposite of Tawheed (i.e. Shirk), and Shirk’s dangers, you will appreciate the value of Tawheed
