Tawheed Al-Uloohiyyah

Tawheed Al-Uloohiyyah is to single out Allaah alone with all acts of worship. People must not take anyone or anything else along with Allaah, worshipping them or seeking nearness to them as they do with Allaah. This is the type of Tawheed with which the polytheists went astray due to it –these same polytheists which the Prophet(peace be upon him) fought, the safety of their blood and wealth being lost as well as their land and homes.It is this type of Tawheed with which the Messengers were sent, and by which the books were revealed along with the other two types: Tawheed Ar-Ruboobiyyah and Tawheed of Allaah’s names and attributes. But most of what the Messengers focused on correcting among their people was this type of Tawheed–Tawheed Al-Uloohiyyah.

Tawheed Al-Uloohiyyah is that people are not to give any form of worship to other than Allaah –not an angel brought near (to Allaah), nor a Messenger sent (by Allaah), nor to a righteous servant (of Allaah), nor to anything else created. Worship is not deserved by anyone but Allaah alone.Whoever violates this type of Tawheed, not fulfilling what it entails, then he is a polytheist, a disbeliever even if he were to accept and believe in Tawheed Ar-Ruboobiyyah and the Tawheed of Allaah’s names and attributes.If someone were to believe that Allaah is the only Creator, owner, and controller of all affairs and that He deserves what befits Him of names and attributes, yet he worships along with Allaah other than Him; then his acceptance of the other two types of Tawheed would never benefit him.So if one were to completely believe in Tawheed Ar-Ruboobiyyah and Tawheed Al-Asmaa was-Sifaat, yet he goes to the grave of someone deceased, worshipping him, making vows to him and seeking nearness to him, then such a person is a polytheists, a disbeliever destined to reside in the Fire forever. Allaah says:

Indeed, whoever makes Shirk(associating partners in worship)with Allaah, then Allaah has forbidden Paradise for him, his destination is the Fire, and there will never be any helper for the transgressors.[Soorah Al-Maaidah, 5:72]

Anyone who has read the Book of Allaah knows that the polytheists that the Prophet fought,making their blood and wealth permissible, taking captives from their families,and inheriting their lands –these same people used to believe and accept that Allaah alone is the sole Lord and Creator; they used not to make Shirk, associating partners,in this particular belief of theirs.However, they used to worship along with Allaah others. By this, they became complete polytheists.
