Oneness of Allah (Tawheed)

Tawheed is the most important belief in Islam, Tawheed means that Allah is One and there is nothing like Him, Allah alone is the Creator. He is the only power behind the universe and the sole source of its guidance. He knows everything, sees everything and has power over everything. He is Eternal and is beyond human knowledge and reasoning. This does not mean that Allah is so far away that He cannot possibly know or care about what He created. On the contrary, He is close to all of us. He listens to our prayer when we call on to Him. It is Allah Who created us and so He knows everything about us. In fact, He is nearer to us than our jugular veins. Everything in the universe belongs to Allah.

Allah says in Surat al-lkhlaas:

قُلْ هُوَ ٱللَّهُ أَحَدٌ ۞ ٱللَّهُ ٱلصَّمَدُ ۞ لَمْ يَلِدْ وَلَمْ يُولَدْ ۞ وَلَمْ يَكُن لَّهُۥ كُفُوًا أَحَدٌۢ

Say, ˹O Prophet,˺ He is Allah, the One ۞ the Sustainer of all ۞ He has not given birth and was not born ۞ And no one is comparable to Him.
