[Surah Al-Qalam 68:4]
A man got his son married to an educated lady, a doctor by profession. She did not concieve any child, so after some time, the in-laws decided to take her to a place of worship. They parked the car and walked inside the premises and saw a huge stone statue of a lion with his jaws open wide. The mother in law asked the doctor to bow before it but she said, "I am afraid it might bite me or eat me up."
The mother in law explained to her that it was only a stone statue and not a real lion. A little ahead, there was an idol of a cow with overflowing milk. The doctor said, "Let us get some milk from this cow."
Hearing this her mother in law said, "It is only a stone."
The girl explained - The artificial lion cannot touch me, nor can this stone cow give me milk, then how can they give me a child? The elders realised the truth and returned home. Their eyes had opened to the truth.
Touhid makes you intelligent
Their hearing has been sealed while their hearts have been covered.
This shows that they are arrogant; which means that their heart will not accept even if truth is presented before them. The words of Touhid will enlighten them, unseal their hearing and would make them obedient to what is presented to them and their hearts will take heed. It is this Touhid that lifted the level of understanding for all companions of Prophet. They achieved many things in life. Even today, a person of Touhid makes more contribution towards the betterment of society. The efficiency of ahlul Touhid (the People of Tauheed) can be judged by the fact that a huge number of people memorize the entire Qur’an, word by word.. Nawab Siddique of Bhopal once announced awards for memorizing Bulgul Maram, Mishkat, Bukhari etc. The first prize winner was a blind man who was blind by birth. Yet, he memorized Bukhari and other books.
Touhid lifts your status
Abu Bakr was an outstanding scholar. Khalid ibn Walid was a reputed military General. They all had been cultivated by a culture of Touhid. These were some of the signs of the prophethood of Mohammed ﷺ mentioned in the Torah.
Touhid is the most fascinating factor of Islam.
