Allah is the only one who creates all the universe and all the creatures. He is the only one who manages and rules everything. He doesn’t need and doesn’t have any associate to do all the things.
And, Allah is the only one who deserve to be worshiped. There is no true worships except Allah. Also, it is prohibited to do any single ibaadah (religious activity) intending it to other than Allah.
Worshiping only Allah, it is called as tawheed. Worshiping other than Allah, it is shirk.
A hadith from Abu Hurayrah (may Allah blesses him), that the Messenger of Allah ﷺ said,
قَالَ اللَّهُ تَبَارَكَ وَتَعَالَى: أَنَا أَغْنَى الشُّرَكَاءِ عَنْ الشِّرْكِ؛ مَنْ عَمِلَ عَمَلًا أَشْرَكَ مَعِي غَيْرِي، تَرَكْتُهُ وَشِرْكَهُ
“Allah ﷻ says: ‘I am so self-sufficient that I am in no need of having an associate. Thus he who does an action for someone else’s sake as well as Mine will have that action renounced by Me to him whom he associated with Me'” [Saheeh Muslim].
Address all our worship to Allah alone. Not the others. Because, Allah has no associate.
