Effect of TAWHID on Human Life
The Believe in La ilaha illal Lah or Tawhid has far-reaching effects on our life:
Control Over All Other Creation:
A Believer in Tawhid surrenders himself completely to the will of Allah and becomes His true servant. Allah has created all that is in the earth and heavens for the service of mankind. When a person surrenders himself to Allah’s commands, he gains control over all other creations in the universe.The Quran confirms this when it says,
“Have you not seen how Allah has made all that is in the earth subservient
to you?”(22: 65) ” See you not, how Allah has made serviceable unto you,
whatever is in the sky and whatever is in the earth and has made His bounties
flow to you in exceeding measure (both) seen and unseen “(31 :20)
These two verses clearly indicate that Allah has created everything on the earth and in the heavens for the service and comfort of humans.We can hope to be served by other objects and creatures only when we believe and practice Tawhid .This Means we must be totally obedient to Allah.
