THE VIRTUES OF TAWHEED
There is nothing that neither produces such good results nor holds such a variety of virtues like Tawheed; for Tawheed with its virtues is the best produce in this world and the Hereafter. Among the important virtues is that all deeds and sayings - both inner and outer - are dependent upon Tawheed.
The forgiveness of sins and their removal is among the general virtues and results of Tawheed.
Among its virtues is that it is the greatest means of removing the sorrows of this world and the Hereafter, and warding off punishment in both worlds.
Among its virtues is that it grants guidance and perfection to its practitioner, complete safety in this world and the Hereafter.
It is the exclusive reason for being granted Allah's pleasure and rewards , and the most fortunate of people - who are granted Muhammad's (sallahAllahu 'alayhi wasallam) intercession are those who said Laa ilaahi illa Allaah with sincerity in their hearts.
When Tawheed is complete in the heart of its bearer, Allah endears him with faith and adorns his heart with it. He would hate kufr, fisq and sin, and it places him among the ranks of the guided.
It lightens the worshipper's mishaps and weakens his pain. It is based on the completeness of the worshipper's Tawheed and Eemaan that his heart is comfortable with his mishaps and misfortunes. And his soul is content, submitting and accepting that Allah has decreed such trials for him.
Among the greatest virtues is that it frees the worshipper from slavery to created beings , from depending upon them, fearing them, hoping in them, and doing deeds for their sake, and this wins him true honour and respect.
Among the virtues of Tawheed is that Allah has granted its people victory , honour , respect, and aid in this life. He grants them guidance and makes things easier for them, setting their affairs right and strengthening their sayings and actions.
Allah protects the people of Tawheed and faith from the evils of this world and the hereafter, and he grants them a good tranquil life and solace in His remembrance. Testimony for this is well known and can be seen often in the Book and the Sunnah.
And Allah knows best.
