In the name of Allah, the Compassionate, the Merciful

Say: He is Allah the One and Only;[1] Allah is the Self-Sufficient (independent of all, while all are dependent on Him);[2] He begets not, nor is He begotten;[3] And there is none comparable to Him.[4]

112:[1-4]

Tawhďd - the unique attribute of Allah

Major Issues, Divine Law and Guidance:

* The unique attributes of Allah

It is important to know what the religious concepts of the world were at the time the Prophet began to preach the message of Tawhďd. The idolatrous polytheists were worshipping gods made of wood, stone, gold, silver and other substances. These gods had forms, shapes and bodies and the gods and goddesses were descended from each other. No goddess was without a husband and no god without a wife. They stood in need of food and drink and their devotees arranged these for them. A large number of the polytheists believed that God assumed human form and there were some people who descended from Him. Although the Christians claimed to believe in One God, they also believed that their God had at least a son, and that the Father, Son and the Holy Ghost also had the honor of being associated with Godhead. The Jews also claimed to believe in One God, but their God too was not without physical, material or other human qualities and characteristics. He went for a stroll, appeared in human form, wrestled with a servant of His, and was father of a son, Ezra. In addition to these religious communities, the Zoroastrians - fire worshippers and the Sabians - star worshippers, also existed. Under such conditions when the people were invited to believe in Allah, the One, Who has no associate, it was inevitable that questions arose in their minds as to what kind of God He was, Who was the One and Only and Whose invitation to believe in Him was being given at the expense of all other gods and deities. It is a miracle of the Qur'an, that in a few brief words it answered all questions and presented such a clear concept of the Being of Allah that all polytheistic concepts were destroyed, leaving no room for the ascription of human qualities to His Being.

That is why the Prophet (pbuh) held this Sürah in such great esteem. This made the Muslims realize its importance in different ways and exhorted them to recite it frequently and disseminate it among the people. It states the foremost and fundamental doctrine of Islam (Tawhďd) in four brief sentences, impresses on human memory and can be read and recited easily. There are a great number of Hadith which show that the Prophet, on different occasions and in different ways, told the people that this Sürah is equivalent to one third of the Qur'an. Several ahădith on this subject have been related in Bukhări, Muslim, Abu Daüd, Nasăi, Tirmidhi, Ibn Măjah, Musnad Ahmed, Tabarani and other books. Commentators have also given many Audio Explanations of the Prophet’s saying. In Abul A’lă Maudüdi's opinion it simply means that the religion presented by the Qur'an is based on three doctrines: Tawhďd, Risălat and the Hereafter. This Sürah teaches Tawhďd, pure and undefiled. Therefore, the Prophet (pbuh) regarded it as equal to one-third of the Qur'an.
