Who is a Muwahhid?

Whoever rejects the three types of shirk for Allaah and belives in the Oneness of His Essence, in Worshipping Him and supplicating to Him, and in His Attributes, then he is a Muwahhid, who comprises all the virtues particular to the Muwahhideen.

Whoever acknowledges any type of shirk cannot be a Muwahhid, rather the saying of the Most High is applicable to him.

وَلَوْ أَشْرَكُوا لَحَبِطَ عَنْهُم مَّا كَانُوا يَعْمَلُونَ

But if they had joined in worship others with Allah, all that they used to do would have been of no benefit to them. [Muhsin Khan translation] -6.88

لَئِنْ أَشْرَكْتَ لَيَحْبَطَنَّ عَمَلُكَ وَلَتَكُونَنَّ مِنَ الْخَاسِرِينَ

"If you join others in worship with Allah, (then) surely (all) your deeds will be in vain, and you will certainly be among the losers." [Muhsin Khan translation] -39.65

So when an individual repents and rejects any partner with Allaah then he is from the Muwahhideen,

Oh Allaah! Make us from the Muwahhideen and do not make us from the Mushrikeen.
