What Is Tawhid in Islam?

Q: What is tawhid in Islam, according to the Quran? Please explain it in detail. What are the different types of tawhid?

A: Tawhid is the oneness of God, in the sense that he is one and there is no god but he, as stated in the shahada. The three aspects are: 1: Tawhid-ul-Rububiyyah maintaining the unity of Lordship (there is only one creator and sustainer); 2: Tawhid-ul-Uluhiyyah maintaining the unity of worship (only He is to be worshipped); 3: Tawhid-ul-Asma’ wal-Sifat maintaining the unity of Allah’s name and attributes (describing Allah the way He has described Himself and the way His Messenger (peace be upon him) described Him; and naming Allah with the names that He has named Himself with).
