Ustadh Nouman Ali Khan delves into an elaborate explanation into some of the Ayats of Surah Al Baqarah.
In Ayat number 21, “O mankind, worship your Lord, who created you and those before you, that you may become righteous.”
In the above Ayah, Allah SWT mentions His Oneness in Divinity and stated that He has favored His servants by bringing them to life after they did not exist. Taqwa in this Ayah means ‘protect’ yourself. To summarise, this Ayah is a call to all of mankind to emphasize on the Oneness of Allah and the significance of the basic declaration of the Islamic creed.
Having said that, it is not enough to affirm the Oneness of Allah SWT orally. Rather one must have a complete certitude, and must also have the truth always present close to one’s heart, for Tawheed is to see Allah as One, and not merely to say that He is One.
The reality of the present times is that even though the number of those who respect this basic formula of the Islamic creed runs to millions, but sadly, their lives do not exhibit Tawheed. This needs to be analyzed and the concept of Tawheed needs to be reinstated tie and time again in order for us to have some form of respect when we stand resurrected on the Day of Judgement.
