Welcome. Welcome back to our program. No your Lord, we were discussing about the Toshi the meaning of it. And we also talked about how oneness of God is preserved till date in all the major religious scriptures. We talked about the Hindu religious scriptures, the Jewish religious scriptures, and the Christian religious scriptures. Now, as I said, that read is unique to Islam, because to read, apart from being describing only oneness of God, it also means the real definition, the complete definition of tawheed is at tributing, oneness to Allah, and describing him as being one, and unique in his essence, in his existence, in His Lordship, in his names and attributes, as well as in his
divinity in his worship. So, this all together would mean the real definition of the lead for a better understanding the scholars, they have categorized the tawheed into three categories, namely, to read a rubia, which means oneness of God in terms of lordship, the heat and smell versified, which means oneness of God
in terms of names and attributes, and tauheed, ibadah, which is oneness in divinity.
These are the three categories that the scholars have categorized in order for us to understand better tauheed in complete sense.
In this episode, we shall throw some light on the first category of tauheed that is tauheed rubia tauheed. alluvia, is the first category of tauheed and it means at tributing, oneness to Allah subhanaw taala and describing him as being one and unique in his lordship, which means if you believe in Toshi rubia, it means that we acknowledge, we affirm that Allah subhanaw taala is the only one and unique in providing in sustaining, in cherishing, in controlling in managing in making all affairs and He's the owner of everything.
Rubber is the root word for rubia. And it means the owner, the nourishing and the one to whom all our obedience is required, which means he is the owner of every one of us, He is the one who deserves our obedience. Third, he is the one who nourishes us. If you look at the Quran, and the teachings of Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him, we find in great detail, the mentioning about tauheed, Aruba BIA,
this being the first category of tawheed. It
helps us analyze and understand the power of Allah subhanho wa Taala in providing and sustaining, controlling, owning and managing the entire creation of Allah subhanho wa Taala confirms in the Quran in Surah Fatiha surah number one and number two, Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil aalameen. Allah subhanho wa Taala is the Lord is the Sustainer is the cherisher is the owner is the protector of everything. He is the one who is the Robin aalameen. He is not the robe of the Muslims of the Arabs. He is the robe of everything that we see. And we don't see. He is Robert amin, and he is the one we believe in this category of greed. We believe that he is the only one force who is providing who has
owned us, who's our single owner, and to Him, we need to obey. He is the one who nourishes every creature that we see and we don't see every creature, every creature on the face of the earth is being fed by Allah subhanho wa Taala and he is the owner. He is the Sustainer he's the one who does not need anything for himself. Allah subhanaw taala he says What were you to him? What are you Tom? It is he who feeds me, you and the rest, but no one is there to feed him. He doesn't require any food. He is by himself.
He sustains everything around us. In order for us to contemplate, we see, there are so many species deep down in the sea, who is providing them, Allah is the rub, who is providing them, we see there are small, tiny insects in between the mountains, who is providing them, it is a rub. He is the one who sustains, who sustains, who provides every living thing, everything is owned by Allah subhanho wa Taala. And our relationship again in terms of a rubber and us is rubber, the master and the slave.
We the slaves are always in need of provision, we the slaves are always in requirement, whom should you go to? Whom should we go to, to address to take a peek, to seek help in terms of our risk, in terms of our sustenance, in terms of cherishing, whom should we go to? It is our Rob. He is so great, he is a rub. He is so great that he even provides to those who are disobedient to him. He is the rub, who provides even to those who do not believe in God. He is the one
who provides everything to the one who associate partners with Allah subhanaw taala. He is Rabbil aalameen.
And historically, historically tofield a rubia was never denied except by for our own. Who said in Nero Bookman, Allah, I am the Rob, I am the ROB for you. I am your Lord, except the tyrant and the arrogant.
No one denies it. Even the mushriks of Makkah, the people who used to associate partners with Allah, even they used to acknowledge
this category of taurine, that is totally the rubia Allah subhanaw taala mentions in the Quran in Surah Surah Surah number 43. That if you ask them, who created the heavens and the earth, they would say a law he is the rub. And if you ask them, as mentioned in Sudan Caboose, surah, number 29. And number 61, who is the one who sends down the rain to the earth which is dead and gives life to it by providing the rain, they would say Allah, He is or Rob, if you ask them, as Allah says instead of uncovered surah number 29 and number 63, who is the one who created you?
They would say Allah or Rob, he is our Creator. But what made them delude is that arrogance is their disbelief is the associating partners with Allah subhanho wa Taala. So historically, all of the people except a few, they attribute it, they acknowledged they affirmed Toshi, or rubia. That is oneness. In terms of lordship, all of the people that believe that Allah is the one, Rob is the one who sustains them, cherishes them, and we as slaves, we, from the definition of rubia derive that all the obedience, all the servitude, all the slavery, we need to show our gratitude to Allah subhanaw taala alone, and we need to obey His laws. We need to obey his commandments. We need to
accept all what he says we need to make sure that we show our slavery, our servitude to Allah subhanaw taala who is the rub of everything, we need to make sure that our relationship as slaves with the master is very clear. We do not we do not associate anyone with the Ruby of Allah subhanaw taala we do not obey anyone, any law, any rule over and above the rule of our rub. We are the one who makes sure that we are nourished, we are cherished, we are sustained, we are controlled, we are managed by a single owner, or Rob. This is what it means to read a rubia and tauheed rubia also clarifies that the nourishment that comes to the earth to all of us
Again from Allah subhanho wa Taala. He is the only single owner of everything that exists and as a part of our faith, we need to believe that each and every creature on the face of the earth are sustained, cherished, and
surviving with the grace and mercy of Arab. Allah subhanho wa Taala is a rubble. Al Ameen, and he is the one as I mentioned, is the rub, who sustains everything that we see, and we that don't see. So these are the meaning of tawheed a phobia. Moreover,
inshallah, in the next episode, we should begin with the next category of terrain, that is to read and asthma versified talking about its meaning, its importance, its principles, till then, make sure that you act like a slave, act like a person who, in reality is the slave of a lot of Arab and make sure our obedience our servitude, is is only for Allah subhanaw taala. And we commit ourselves that we do not associate anybody in terms of tawheed or Rabu BIA with anyone except Allah subhanho wa Taala. We do not
associate any partners in this category of tawheed that is a rubia. Till then, take care of yourself and keep worshipping a rub with the rubble. Allah mean the Lord of the worlds we're arcada Juana and Al hamdu, lillahi Rabbil aalameen. creme
