Al Ahad – The Only One

The one who has ever been and ever remains alone. The incomparable, unequalled, indivisible One.The Sole One.
The One who depends upon no other, and to whom there is no likeness. The one in whom all names, attributes and relationships are united.
“Say, He is Allah, ( who is ) One. Allah, the eternal refuge. He neither begets nor is born. Nor is there to Him any equivalent”
(112.1-4) The Quran
From the root a-h-d with the
classical Arabic
to be one,the only one,
one alone, sole, to unite, unify.
The Prophet (saw) told his Companions: “Are you not able to read a third of the Qur’an in one night?” They found this very difficult and replied that nobody amongst them could do so. The Prophet (saw)  replied: “Allah, The One, the Self-Sufficient, Surah ‘Qul Huwa Allahu Ahad’, equals a third of the Quran.” (Bukhari)

An advice to be ‘unique’ by Sheikh Hisham al-Awadhi : Another way to connect to this Name is to know that the One who is truly Unique has created you in a unique way too, and you have your own unique purpose to fulfill. Thus, try to leave a legacy that is specific to you.

The Prophet (saw)  told his Companions: “Renew your faith.” They said, “O Messenger of Allah, how can we renew our faith?” The Prophet ﷺ said: “Say often, ‘there is no God but Allah (la ilaha ill Allah)’.” (Ahmad)
