Laa ilaaha illallaah (there is no god but Allaah); Why?
 
For He The Almighty is the creator alone and no one other than Him creates anything:
Allaah The Almighty says:
 
{That is Allaah, your Lord, Creator of all things; there is no deity except Him, so how are you deluded?} [Ghaafir: 62][1]
 
Ibn Khatheer said: It means the OneWho does all of these things is Allaah, the One, the Unique, the Creator of all things, besides Whom there is no other god or lord. As for (so how are you deluded?), it means how can you worship idols which cannot create anything but are themselves hand-made and carved.[2]
 
It was narrated that Ibn Mas‘ood, may Allaah be pleased with him, said: I said, O Messenger of Allaah! Which sin is worst before Allaah? He, peace and blessings be upon him, said: “To appoint a rival to Allaah, when He has created you.”[3]
 
For He The Almighty is the Provider alone and no one else than Him can provide:
Allaah The Almighty says: {Indeed, it is Allaah who is the [continual] Provider, the firm possessor of strength.} [Ath-Thaariyaat: 58]
 
He The Almighty also says: {Is He [not best] who begins creation and then repeats it and who provides for you from the heaven and earth? Is there a deity with Allaah? Say, "produce your proof, if you should be truthful.} [An-Naml: 64]
 
He The Almighty also says: {O mankind, remember the favor of Allaah upon you. Is there any creator other than Allaah who provides for you from the heaven and earth? There is no deity except Him, so how are you deluded?} [Faatir: 3]
 
Allaah The Almighty draw the attention of His worshipers to get the proofs of His Oneness and ascribing worship for Him alone for He The Almighty is only creator and provider and has no associate with him in that. If this is the case, so worship should be dedicated entirely for Him alone and nothing should be associated with him such as idols and rivals.[4]
 
‘Even the disbelievers, He The Almighty grants them provision and health.’
 
It was narrated on the authority of Abu Moosa, may Allaah be pleased with him, that the Prophet, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, said: “No one is more patient in bearing offensive things that he hears than Allaah, may He be glorified and exalted; others are associated with Him, a son is attributed to Him, but He still grants them health and provision.”[5]
 
For He The Almighty is the only King and no one else than Him owns anything:
Allaah The Almighty is the King whom no other king is above Him and no matter except it is under His Sovereignty.[6]
 
Allaah The Almighty says about Himself: {He is Allaah, (other than Whom) there is no god except He. He is The King, The Superb Holy.} [Al-Hashr: 23]
 
He The Almighty also says: {That is Allaah, your Lord; to Him belongs sovereignty.} [Faatir: 13]
 
He The Almighty also says about others: {And those whom you invoke other than Him do not possess [as much as] the membrane of a date seed.} [Faatir: 13]
 
 For benefit and harm are only determined by Allaah The Almighty alone.
Allaah The Almighty says: {And if Allaah should touch you with adversity, there is no remover of it except Him; and if He intends for you good, then there is no repeller of His bounty.} [Yoonus: 107]
 
It was narrated that the Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, said: “Be mindful of Allaah and He will protect you; be mindful of Allaah and you will find Him ever with you. If you ask anyone for anything, then ask Allaah; if you seek help from anyone, then seek help from Allaah. Know that even if the entire nation were to come together to benefit you in some way, they could not do so unless Allaah has decreed that for you, and if they were to gather together to harm you in some way, they could not do that unless Allaah has decreed that for you. The pens have been lifted and the pages have dried.”[7]
