The author, rahimahullaah, presents as proof for the fact that Allah, the one free of all imperfections and the Most High, is the one who nurtures and sustains all of creation, the Saying of Allah, the Most High: “All praise is for Allah“ meaning that description with the attributes of perfection, majesty and greatness are for Allah, the Most High, alone.
“The Lord of all creation“ meaning that He is the one who nurtured and sustained them with His blessings, and that He is their creator and their owner and Sovereign-Lord, and that He is the one Who controls their affairs as He, the Mighty and Majestic, wishes. So no-one can say that I have Lord besides the Lord of all creation. This is the proof of Ruboobiya (Lordship) of Allah subhana’watalah. He is the only one Who deserves worship and this nullifies the worship of others.
The creation (al-‘Aalam: that by which something is known) is so called because they are a sign for their Creator, their sovereign Lord. So everything contains a sign showing that Allah is one, and I am one of the creation, and my Lord has made it obligatory upon me that I should worship Him alone.
اياك نعبد واياك نستعين
It is You we worship and You we ask for help.
اے پروردگار) ہم تیری ہی عبادت کرتے ہیں اور تجھ ہی سے مدد مانگتے ہیں)
(Surah Al-Fatiha : 5)
This ayah indicates the restriction because the fact that the governed word is brought forward Iyyaka and the governing verb is put back. So “You” we worship is different to “we worship You“, because saying “we worship” is merely affirmation. However, “You, we worship” includes negation and affirmation, meaning we do not worship anyone else besides You. And worship will not be correct except with negation and affirmation and Laillaha’illalah includes same meaning as it contains both expressions, a negation for the right to be worshipped from everything else besides Allah, and affirmation is for Allah, the Majestic and Perfect.
