Ruboobiyah: Maintaining the unity of Lordship (No partners)

Asma was-sifaat: Maintaining the unity of Allah’s Names and Attributes (Distinct from creations)

Uluhiyah / Ibadah: Maintaining the unity of Allah’s Worship (Includes Love, Hope etc)

Source in Quran: Sura Al-Fathi’hah explains all three types

(Quran Surah 1. Al Faatihah ayat 2-6)

2. All the praises and thanks be to Allâh, the Lord of the ‘Alamîn (mankind, jinns and All that exists) –> Ruboobiyya

3. the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful –> Asma was-Sifaat

4. The Only Owner (and the Only Ruling Judge) of the Day of Recompense (i.e. the Day of Resurrection) –> Asma was-Sifaat

5. You (Alone) we worship, and You (Alone) we ask for help (for each and everything) –> Allaah’s right to be worshipped (Ibadah)

    • WaAlaiku Mussalam,

      Science of Tawheed: Neither the Prophet nor his companions divided Tawheed into these three components. There was no need in the earlier days. The necessity came when Islam spread to various countries, and absorbed the cultures of those regions. Scholars categorized Tawheed to clarify to people, when deviant thoughts spread

      #1: These new Muslims carried some of their old beliefs and customs into Islam, causing confusion and threatening the Unitarian belief.

      #2: There were people who called themselves Muslims but they weren’t, who secretly worked to destroy Islam – because they couldn’t oppose it openly

      All the Islamic Sciences were started to protect the teachings of Islam. Our sources (Quran & Hadeeth) are strong, unlike Bible [heavily distorted] and other books

      The categories of Tawheed are like parts of a body. There is just one organic Tawheed. Studying and analyzing them is like studying nervous system, digestive system, lymphatic system etc – there is overlap, and together you study one whole human body

      Seyed Ibrahim
