What is Tawheed al-Haakimiyyah?

بسم الله والحمد لله والصلاة والسلام على رسول الله وبعد

Tawheed Al-Haakimiyyah is part of Islaam, والحمد الله (wal-hamdulillaah). Only Allaah تعالى has the right to create laws and legislate it, and only His laws are to be followed, ولا إله إلا هو (wa laa ilaaha illa huwa).

There is also Tawheed as-Salaat, Tawheed al-Siyaam, Tawheed al-Zakaat, Tawheed al-Hajj, Tawheed al-Dhikr, and Tawheed al-Du`aa and so on; all of which (including Tawheed Al-Haakimiyyah) fall under the much broader category of Tawheed al-Uloohiyyah (Tawheed of Worship): لا إله إلا الله (Laa ilaaha illallaah): none has the right to be worshipped except Allaah.
