Q 49: What does "Oneness of the Lordship of Allah" mean?

A ---It means to believe in that there is only one Lord for the universe, He is its Creator, Organizer, Planner, Sustainer, and the Giver of security, etc., and that is Allah. He is Allah, Who has neither a partner in (His) Dominion, nor He is low to have a protector or supporter. No one can defy His Judgment or challenge His Ordainments. Almighty Allah says: 

{All praises and thanks be to Allah, Who (Alone) created the heavens and the earth, and originated the darkness and the light; yet those who disbelieve hold others as equal with their Lord}.

 (Al-An' am, 1)

Allah the Almighty says: 

{Praise be to Allah, Lord of the Worlds}.

 (Al-Fatihah, 1)

Allah the Almighty says:

 {Say (O Muhammad): "Who is the Lord of the heavens and the earth?” Say: "(It is) Allah." Say: "Have you then taken (for worship) Auliya' (protectors) other than Him, such as have no power either for benefit or for harm to themselves?" Say: "Is the blind equal to the one who sees? Or darkness equal to light? Or do they assign to Allah partners who created the like of His creation, so that the creation (which they   made and His         creation) seemed alike to them?" Say: "Allah is the Creator of all things, and He is the One, the Irresistible}. 

(Ar-Ra'd, 16)

Allah the Almighty says:

 {Allah is He Who created you, then provided food for you, then will cause you to die, then (again) He will give you life (on the Day of Resurrection). Is there any of your (so-called) partners (of Allah) that do anything of that? Glory is to Him! And Exalted is He above all that (evil) they associate (with Him)}. 

(Ar-Rum, 40)

   Allah the Almighty says: 

{This is the creation of Allah. So show Me that which those (whom you worship besides Him have created}. 

(Luqman, 11)

Allah the Almighty says: 

{Were they created by nothing? Or were they themselves the creators? Or did they create the heavens and the earth? Nay, but they have no firm Belief}.

 (At-Tur, 35, 36)

   Allah the Almighty says:

 {Lord of the heavens and the earth, and all that is between them, so worship Him (Alone) and be constant and patient in His worship. Do you know of any who is similar to Him?}1.

 (Maryam, 65)

Allah the Almighty says:

 (There is nothing like unto Him and He is the All-Hearer, the All-Seer}. 

(Ash-Shura, 11)

Allah the Almighty says: 

{And say: "All the praises and thanks are to Allah, Who has not begotten a son (or offspring), and Who has no partner in (His) Dominion, nor He is low to have a Wali (helper, protector or supporter). And magnify Him with all magnificence, [Allahu-Akbar (Allah is the Most Great)]}. 

(Al-Isra', 111)

Allah the Almighty says:

 {Say: (O Muhammad to polytheists, pagans) "Call upon those whom you assert (to be associate gods) besides Allah, they possess not even an atom's weight either in the heavens or on the earth, nor have they any share in either, nor there is for Him any supporter from among them. Intercession with Him profits not except for him whom He permits. So much so that when fear is banished from their (angels') hearts, they (angels) say: "What is it that your Lord has said?" They say: "The truth. And He is the Most High, the Most Great}. 

(Saba', 22, 23)
