5. Tawheedal- Asma Was – SifatThistype of divine attributes are: -Thistype is to believe that Allah enjoys unique divine name’s and attribute withwhich Allah has named and qualified himself and those with which his messenger,may Allah exalt has mention named and qualified him without comparing him withhis weight and without suspending, distorting the meaning if his name callingand dimension. The attributes of Allah are countless and so many that it is notpossible even to enumerate them or even to imagine them.
The First ruleAll ofthe names of Allah are beautiful and perfect and are free from everyprobability of defect.The Second ruleThenames of Allah are both appellations and epithets; appellations in term of hisessence and epithets in term of the meaning and significance. As forappellations such as the Living, the Hearer, the Seer are all names of one god,Allah the Exalted. In terms of epithets each one of these names has a differentsignification then the others.
That is his name, the Living has a differentmeaning then of the Hearer.The Third rulea) Confirmingthe name as one of Allah’s.b) Confirmingthe attribute that the name signifies as one of Allah’s.
c) Confirmingthe ruling of that name.TheFourth ruleWe cannot give Allah name’s that he has notnamed himself with, nor did his messenger, may Allah exalt has mention, namedhim with.TheFifth ruleThe names of Allah are not limited to a certainnumber.
There is a hadith which is related to the prophet, may Allah exaltmention, signifying that Allah 99 names, but this does not mean he has no othernames.TheSixth ruleName’s and attributes of Allah should not besuspended or distorted.a. Theydeny some of these names, their signification or rulings.b.

Tawheedal – IbadahIt isalso called as Tawheed al – Ululiyah. This type is the dedication of all actsof worship, vows, rules, prayers, charity etc. to Allah alone. Oneness in worshipis that every form of worship should be for Allah only and no one else shouldbe joined in it. In the Quran the word worship is used in two different meanings:-Firstly, in the form of worship.(41:37) Surah al Fussilat Verse no.37Prostratenot to the sun and the moon, but prostrate to Allah, who created them, if it ishim you wish to serve.Secondly is used in the meaning ofobedience and subordination(36:60) Surah al Yaseen Verse no.
60Did notenjoin on you, O you children of Adam, that you should not worship Satan; forthat he was to you an enemy a vowed? ConclusionOne hasto maintain all three aspects of Tawheed to be considered a Moslem because itis the very first stone’s throw a Muslim payoff in the path of Islamism. Everyhuvalet being is 2 senses of bear with primordial nature of acknowledging Allahas his God Almighty but his parent tour him into Muslim or non – Muslim. Allahsays in the hadeeth I have created all my creatures believing in my oneness,but Beelzebub Pb them astray. The whole Quran proves the oneness of Allah. Thequranic chapters contain information about Allah’s name’s and attributes foradoration him and ascribing no spouse to him. They contain command andproscription ‘s that are right’s necessitated by tawheed.
Allah hope advantageto those who believe in his oneness and penalisation who do not believe.Testimony of faith is the key that open’s the gate of Islam to enter it.Tawheed is necessity for man as urine and air. It is the religious belief ofreligion. Without this a person is lost and confused. Prophet Muhammed (SAW)was concerned throughout his life with strengthening the Tawheed in the heartsof his companion . Quranic Revelation of Saint John the Divine for the first 13eld during the Makkan period spoke mainly about one issue that is Tawheed. (Masumi, 2006) References Masumi, B.
