How tawhid shapes your life?

How tawhid shapes your life?

In the aspect of politic, I realize that politic in Islam is important and it stress on how to build a daulah islamiah so that I will deny the ‘politik kotor’. One muslim scholar says that the purpose of the human creation is to build up the ‘deen’ and manage the world with it. That is the reason why human must put this religion (Islam) in the top of all things. We must practice it as a way of life since it carry all aspects in our life from the simple things such as the dua’ to go to the toilet to the most complex things such as to manage the country. Tawhid Asma wa al-sifat is the belief that Allah has attributes and names. One of the names is The Knower. I will practice politics based on Islam as I know that Allah knows every single things that I do. The human will fear for Allah for His punishment.

In the aspect of economy, I would practice economy based on Islamic teachings. Islam deny the people to take ‘riba’, so I will not take it even a small or large proportion. Some of the attributes of Allah in tawhid asma wa al-sifat is The one who always see and The Knower. If I take ‘riba’, Allah will know and see my act. So that I must avoid myself from taking riba because it is haram in Islam. Besides, it teaches me to be honest in doing business because I know that Allah knows my action in doing the business.

Tawhid shapes in my social life by building the self respect in myself and being modest in all things that I do. Tawhid rububiyyah is the belief that only Allah creates all things in this world. As I believe that Allah is the sustainer, only He can give the rizq to me. So that, by being modest in all things, I should not be worried of the rizq that will come to me because I know that I have obey Allah and only Him have the right to give rizq to His servant. Tawhid also make me to be optimistic person in facing the troubles in life. In Tawhid asma wa al-sifat, one of the attributes is The Generous. He will give help to whoever seek for His help. He will always hear all of His servants’ problems. I will try to solve my problems and seek help from Allah because I know that He knows my problems and He will help me.

Tawhid Uluhiyyah is the belief in the unity of Allah’s worship. Only He alone deserve to be worshipped and can grant benefit to man as a result of his worship. From that ‘ibadah, it makes my attitudes become more positive because the ‘ibadah can avoid the person from commiting the munkar. It helps me in building positive attitudes towards people surrounding me and there will be a good relationship among other people.

One of the attributes of Allah in tawhid in asma wa al-sifat is The Most Merciful. Allah loves His servants very much. So as a servant, I must take good effort in loving Allah. Entertainment such as nasyid is one of the way to love Allah. The lyrics of the songs have great messages in putting love only for Allah. This effort make me feel closer to Allah and become more grateful to Allah. This action will avoid me from choosing the bad songs that mostly spreading the bad message to people to loosen their faith to Allah.
