Tawhid: The One in the Many: A documentary on the compassion, ethics and wisdom of Islam

Peace, unity, and equality...when we are in one place, when we live in one place, eat in one place, sleep in one place, disappear in one place, die in one place, when our final judgment is given in one place, and when we finally join together in heaven in one place, that is unity. Even when we go to that (final) place, we all live together in freedom as one family, one group. In this world and in the next world we live together in freedom, as one family of peace. This is Islam. If we find this way of peace, this is Islam. - M. R. Bawa Muhaiyaddeen, God’s Psychology: A Sufi Explanation

Tawhid: The One in the Many: A Documentary on the Compassion, Ethics and Wisdom of Islam - is a beautiful film made by Dr. Tariq M. Quadir as a labor of love between 1998-2000. The Arabic word Tawhid is an Islamic term meaning Unity, namely Divine Unity or Oneness - the One Reality. Tawhid is the quintessential knowledge of the Path, the beginning of beginning for seekers of Truth which give witness to the truth that Divine Reality is One, Eternal and without association. 

The film portrays some aspects of Islam as a Way of Life, what it is really about and how communities around the world, including in America - how Islam is lived by its followers. It touches some important subjects and also educates people about real practices of Islam. This is a powerful documentary having real capabilities to dissolve a lot of misconceptions and disinformation, false myth and biased views about Islam. A must see for Non-Muslims, specially those who lives in the West, who are constantly bombarded with distorted image of Islam and Muslims in the corporate controlled corrupt mainstream media. This film also has the capacity to stir up faith for those who think they already know about Islam.

The documentary not only unveils the inner dimensions of Islam but also features and interviews some of the most illuminating people of Islam in the west of contemporary time who share their knowledge and wisdom throughout.

The film is made in 3 parts, covering three concepts of Islam. First part is Salat or Prayer of Heart in Islam, Zikr or Divine Remembrance and Sadaqa or Giving for the Sake of God. You may click on the image below to watch the documentary in full via Youtube:

A'uzu billahi minas shaitanir rajim: I seek refuge in Allah from the outcast Satan
Bismillahir Rahmanir Rahim: In the name of Allah, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful

Qul Hu-walaahu 'Ahad: Say: He is Allah, the Monoreal!
'Allahus-Samad: Allah is Eternal.
Lam yalid, wa lam yuulad: The Monoreal does not take or give birth.
Walam yakul-la-Huu kufuwan 'ahad: And there is none comparable to That Reality.
- Chapter of Purity (of Reality), Holy Qur'an

Once man has thus comprehended the essence of existence there remains for him the duty, since he knows the value of his own soul, of making for himself a direct path which will constantly lead his individual soul to and bind it with the universal Soul of which the Universe, as much of it we perceive with our limited vision, is one of the infinite manifestations. Thus Islam's basic principle can only be defined as monorealism and not as monotheism. - Imam Sultan Muhammad Shah (credit)
