Creed/Aqidah & commands

The Word of Taw’hid, La Ilah Ila-Llah, there is no deity worthy of worship except Allah, is best and the most beneficial Word. This Word is the strong covenant and the word of Taqwa (piety/ god conciosness). It is the most important pillar of the religion and the most vital part of Iman. It is the path through which one will acquire Paradise and will be saved from the Fire. For this word, Allah has started the creation and has sent down the Books and the Messengers. It is the word of the Shahadah (testimony) and the key to the residence of happiness and eternal joy, that is, Paradise. It is the origin of the religion and its most important and uppermost part. Allah said, what translated means,
Allah bears witness that La Ilaha Illa Huwa (none has the right to be worshipped but He), and the angels, and those having knowledge (also give this witness); (He is always) maintaining His creation in Justice. La ilah illa Huwa, the All-Mighty, the All-Wise. [3:18].
The Texts that emphasize the vital importance of the Word of Taw’hid are truly numerous in the Book of Allah and the Sunnah of His Messenger, Salla Allahu Alayhi Wasallam.
La Ilaha Illa-Llah will not be accepted from one, except after he or she fulfills its obligations and conditions that were stated in the Quran and Sunnah. There are seven conditions for La Ilaha Illa-Llah that every Muslim must learn and implement, not only memorize. It is a fact that there are many commoners who implement these conditions, yet if they were asked to list them, they would not be able to do so. And there are many people who memorize these conditions by heart, while often committing what invalidates them. Muslims are required to acquire knowledge in these conditions and then implement them, so that they will be among the people of Taw’hid, that is, Islamic Monotheism.

Narrated Abu Huraira:
Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ) said, “Whoever obeys me, obeys Allah, and whoever disobeys me, disobeys Allah, and whoever obeys the ruler I appoint, obeys me, and whoever disobeys him, disobeys me.”

Say, (O Muhammad, to mankind): If ye love Allah, follow me; Allah will love you and forgive you your sins. Allah is Forgiving, Merciful. (3:31)
