The Three Parts of Tawheed

Tawheed mans to believe in the oneness of Allah and worship Allah alone. It has three parts:

1. Tawheed Ar Ruboobiyyah

2. Tawheed Al Uloohiyyah

3. Tawheed Al Asma wa sifaat

1. Tawheed Ar Ruboobiyyah

Tawheed Ar Ruboobiyyah is the belief that Allah alone is the one who creates and provides for his creation (in terms of food, shelter, health etc). He is in total control of all the affairs of his creation. He is the to give life and cause death.

Almost everyone, except atheists and followers of animist religions, believes in Tawheed Ar Ruboobiyyah. If you were to ask Jews and Christians who created them and controls their affairs they would say God (Allah).

2. Tawheed Al Uloohiyyah

It is also known as Tawheed al ibaadah. It is the belief that all acts of worship are for Allah alone and are only directed towards Allaha subhana wa taala. We must not pray, worship or ask of our need to anyone but Allah. Since He is the sustainer of all creation, all our calls to help must be directed to Allah alone.

It is the belief that none but Allah is able to comfort us when we are in need. “It is the knowledge and the acknowledgement, that Allah is the sole Possessor of Divinity, and the One who has the sole right to be worshipped over all His creation. (And) that He alone should be worshipped by them—all of them—and they should make the religion sincerely and purely for Allah alone.”
3. Tawheed Al Asma was sifaat

It is the belief in Allahs names and characteristics and attributes. For example, Allah has called Himself Ar-Rahmaan, we have to believe firmly, without any doubt that indeed Allah is most Merciful. There are 99 names of Allah, we must believe in each and every one of them. Such as He has described Himself as and what His Messengers have told us. In addition, no person or thing has any share of these characteristics (no one else or thing has these qualities). Believing in this type of Tawheed also means that we don’t try to change the meaning of them.

May Allah fill our hearts with great Tawheed.

In the name of Allah, most compassionate and most merciful. “From among the signs of the Hour (end of time) are that religious knowledge will be taken away (by the death of religious scholars), ignorance will prevail, drinking of alcoholic drinks, and there will be a prevalence of Zina.” – Prophet (saw) We begin our topic with these words of our beloved Prophet. How true were his words? We live in a world where all these things are prevalent and unfortunately in our Muslim community as well. Many of our Muslim brothers and sisters are trapped in the evil of Zina and it has become a norm for them, as a result they don’t even consider it haram and unlawful. Allah says in holy Quran: Sūrah al-Isrā’, 17:32: “And do not even approach zina, for it is an outrageous act, and an evil way…’’ We are not going into detail about why Zina is unlawful but in this article, you will find the consequences of this sin. How this affects a life of a person physically, mentally, spiritually and so


It’s a sad day for all those who knew Ali Banat, the young man gifted with cancer. Ali Banat was an inspiring Australian Muslim philanthropist whose diagnosis of cancer motivated him to dedicate his life to charity work. “At this point in my life, Alhamdulillah I have been gifted by Allah with cancer throughout my body and I have changed my whole life to helping people,” he said. An Inspiration to Muslim Youth A man of a kind heart was known for his charity work over the past three years. One of his biggest achievements is MATW project, (Muslims Around The World) launched in October 2015 to assist those less fortunate in the poverty-stricken areas of Togo, Africa. He was an inspiration to Muslim youth, dedicating his big fortune to charity work. His organization built mosques and schools for the less fortunate in Africa. May Allah accept it from him! Indeed, to Allah we belong and to Him we shall return. May Allah have mercy on our brother Ali Banat and make it easy


Ali Banat is a sydney born who was diagnosed with Cancer and doctors have given him only 7 months to live. Despite his circumstances, he considers this a gift from Allah. Ali Banat, is a young man who, in his own words, was “gifted” with a stage 4 cancer throughout his body. He was given just a few months to live but took this great test as an opportunity to change his life. Upon receiving this news he immediately sold his business, gave up his lavish lifestyle and prized possessions and began a new mission to give up his Dunya and work for his Akhira. Ali has humbly dedicated the remainder of his life to helping those who are far less fortunate than him and in doing so, set up the charity MATW Project (Muslims Around The World) which has already changed the lives of so many. Being diagnosed with cancer is like death sentence for many. But this is not the way Australian Muslim Ali Ali Banat sees it. For him, the sickness is unquestionably a gift from Allah. “At this point in m
