As-Salaam alaikum,
It is believed in some circles that the best thing ever said about Tawheed is contained in the words of Sayyadi Abu Bakr al-Siddiq, may Allah be pleased with him, when he said:

  “PRAISE BE TO HIM WHO GRANTED HIS CREATURES ACCESS TO THE KNOWLEDGE
    OF HIMSELF ONLY THROUGH THEIR INABILITY (ajz) TO KNOW HIM.”

Commenting on this, Imam al-Qushayri, Rahimahullah, said: “Abu Bakr al-Siddiq, may Allah be pleased with him, did not mean that Allah cannot be known. The inability to know Allah can only pertain to something that exists; it cannot apply to something that has no existence. Thus, for a paralyzed person, sitting [qu’ud] is not possible; for it requires of him neither an assumption [of this state], nor any action, because the state of sitting already resides in him. Likewise, one who knows Allah [arif] is incapable of the act of knowing Allah, for this knowledge already resides in him, since, in his case, it is a necessity (daruriyya).

At the beginning, knowledge of Allah, even if it is true, is acquired (kasbiyya). However, al-Siddiq, may Allah be pleased with him, counted it for nothing in regard to the necessary knowledge. For him, it was like a lamp at the rise of the sun, when its rays encompass it.”

For more on this, see Sayyadi al-Qushayri’s
“Epistle On Sufism”.
