This belief emphasizes the right of Allah towards its creatures and it is the cause of all successes in this world and the world hereafter. Due to its significant position, it is considered to be superior to all virtues and noble acts. In fact, acceptance of all deeds depends upon this belief. This belief has been discussed with all the necessary details in three books i.e. Torah, Gospel and the Holy Quran, so that their followers refrain from Shirk.

This article discusses this significant belief with reference to three divine books i.e. Torah, Gospel and the Holy Quran. Hopefully this effort will be a valuable addition.

The whole planets revolve on the basis of its principles. The universe can not deviate from the principles of Islam just for a while. The common perception of religion (MAZHAB) encompasses some beliefs, ethics and some code of worship but on the contrary Quran uses a comprehensive term of "DIIN" instead of "MAZHAB" (religion).According to this concept Islam is a complete, universal and comprehensive code of life leading to a balanced way of living and no aspect of life escapes from it.
