All praise belongs to Allah. May His peace and blessings be upon our noble prophet. To proceed;

When the underdevelopment culture prevails, Tawheed - the cornerstone in the Islamic faith - becomes closer to the theological view, hence, we must refer to the authentic meaning of Tawheed, which is the living meaning to serve the Muslim in worshiping Allah, serving Islam, reforming the societies and the people, with its rulings and etiquettes. Tawheed seems to us a positive activity that links the Muslim to his Lord and the people, as well as to the universe. Allah says in the Qur’an:

{وَمَا أَرْسَلْنَا مِن قَبْلِكَ مِن رَّسُولٍ إِلَّا نُوحِي إِلَيْهِ أَنَّهُ لَا إِلَهَ إِلَّا أَنَا فَاعْبُدُونِ}.

[We did not send any apostle before you except that We revealed to him that ‘There is no God except Me; so worship Me]. Qur'an21:25.


The human being’s Relationship with his lord:

If this relationship is done well and completed, freedom will prevail in its most beautiful form. Because, whoever is pleased with Allah as his Lord, and understood the meaning of "There is no God but Allah" he would be freed from all the values ​​and limitations of the earth. And he would be subjected to Allah alone, loving Him. without considering the causes of desire and fear; except that which is for Allah and from him - the Almighty.

This Emotional Emancipation that is being developed by the doctrine of Islamic monotheism generates a tremendous positive input into the life of the Muslim, which makes him worship, build and continue with life, and have no fear to meet Allah. His motto is: "pleasing Allah is our target and the best day will be the day we meet Him."


His relationship with other people:

If the believer senses the oneness of his Lord and his dominion over the creation and the purpose for creating them, the primary principle in his relationship with other people will be love, responsiveness and cooperation, as people are from Adam and Adam is from dust.  Based on this free living conscience that it yielded to, therefore submission to the oneness of Allah whether in the field of the doctrine of faith, or in the field of humanity, even though the first one is the most important but it does not cancel the second one. Allah says in the Qur’an:

{لَّا يَنْهَاكُمُ اللَّهُ عَنِ الَّذِينَ لَمْ يُقَاتِلُوكُمْ فِي الدِّينِ وَلَمْ يُخْرِجُوكُم مِّن دِيَارِكُمْ أَن تَبَرُّوهُمْ وَتُقْسِطُوا إِلَيْهِمْ إِنَّ اللَّهَ يُحِبُّ الْمُقْسِطِينَ}.

[Allah does not forbid you dealing with those who have not made war against you on account of (your) religion, and have not driven you forth from your homes, that you show them kindness and deal with them justly; surely Allah loves the doers of justice]. Qur'an 60:8.

Tawheed here means the submission of all people to Allah voluntarily or forcefully, in addition to giving them all to the responsibility of Succession, developing the earth and worshiping, then the believers will generally be with passion, love and compassion, and the hearts would be freed from loneliness, the feelings of cruelty, hardness and hatred, which results in the unification of the movement of Dawah towards everyone with different specified remedies that will spread  guidance, submission of the people to Allah. A Muslim who is aware of Tawheed in all it angles  will not partake in anything when dealing with the pious, the deviant, and the peaceful non-believers, except that his motto and focus is the application of Allah's saying;

{..وَافْعَلُوا الْخَيْرَ لَعَلَّكُمْ تُفْلِحُونَ}.

[…And do good, so that you may be successful]. Qur'an 22:77.

{...وَتَعَاوَنُوا عَلَى الْبِرِّ وَالتَّقْوَى}.

[…And Cooperate in piety and God fearing…]. Qur'an 5:2.


Human relationship with the universe:

Among the fruitfulness of At-Tawheed is the attachment  of the human beings to all creations; animals, birds, inanimate structures, even metaphysical creatures, in a wonderful symphony, the divine source and guidance that eliminate the myth of hostility between the human-being and nature to conquer one another that is promoted by Western thought. Allah has said:

{تُسَبِّحُ لَهُ السَّمَاوَاتُ السَّبْعُ وَالْأَرْضُ وَمَن فِيهِنَّ وَإِن مِّن شَيْءٍ إِلَّا يُسَبِّحُ بِحَمْدِهِ...}.

[The seven heavens glorify Him, and the earth [too], and all that is in them. There is not a thing but celebrates His praise…] Qur'an17:44.

The harmony of the universe with human-being brings forth the comfort and confidence, the calmness of the soul, and the serenity of the inner thought. It is the qualities that combine dignity and beauty, so that it will form the perfection that can only be achieved by Tawheed.

Thus, this is how the believer moves in order to achieve in this world and the next, in accordance with the cosmopolitan  customs that is friendly to him, and in an auxiliary environment that calls for striving, offering, and discovering. This - which we say in the relationship of the Muslim to the universe- has nothing to do with the false creeds, such as Wahdatu-l-Wujuud, Al-Huluul, and Al-Itihaad.  Allah, the Most High settled on His throne.

{...لَيْسَ كَمِثْلِهِ شَيْءٌ وَهُوَ السَّمِيعُ الْبَصِيرُ}.

[…Nothing is like Him, and He is the All-hearing, the All-seeing]. Quran42:11.

And all beings are His servants and His creations. The Muslim interacts with them as creations like him, but he does not despise or worship them in any way.

Finally, what I have stated earlier will give the believer the dimensional scope of the Islamic faith, so that he searches for its benefits around him. We ask Allah to provide us all with good understanding of the Islamic creeds, the creeds of the rightly guided sect, (Ahl-Sunnah Wal-Jamaa'h).
