Definition of Tauheed:
The word “Tauheed” means to “accept the oneness of Allah”. In Islam, the Tauheed reflects the concept of monotheism for Allah which means that the Muslims assert that there is no God but Allah and to Him, they shall return. Tauheed is the first pillar of Islam which along with other pillars completes the cycle of faith in a Muslim’s life. The acceptance of Tauheed is the major difference between the Muslim and a Non-Muslim.
The 4th Kalma Tauheed in Arabic:
The Kalima Tauheed is the Fourth Kalima of Islam which reflects the oneness, greatness, and power of Allah. Fourth Kalima in Arabic states:

Importance of Tauheed:
The concept of Tauheed plays a vital role in the life of a Muslim. The Tauheed is the main boundary line between a believer and a non-believer. After accepting and implementing the Tauheed, a believer makes sure that his actions are according to the directions of Allah. He assists that his deeds are reflecting the virtues and signs of a true believer.
Besides this, the recitation of Kalma Tauheed on a daily basis commits a man to be righteous to his paths and to set an ultimate goal, which is just to inspire the Almighty Allah.
Different Segments of Fourth Kalima Tauheed:
Besides the concept of monotheism, the Kalma Tauheed also reflects the virtues of praise and power of Allah. The segments of 4th Kalima can be penned down as:
لَآ اِلٰهَ اِلَّا اللهُ: There is no God except Allah, the One & Only
وَ لَهُ الْحَمْدُ: Allah, is the one that holds all the praises.
وَهُوَ عَلٰى كُلِّ شیْ ٍٔ قَدِیْرٌؕ: He is the most powerful & the world & hereafter belongs to Him.
Hence, the Kalima Tauheed guides us about the power, greatness, and oneness of Allah that He is the one that owes the universe and to Him, we shall return, and if we want to secure our Duniya as well as Akhira so our actions must be according to the teachings of Holy Quran & Sunnah.
