[Al Ahad/The One]
Al-Ahad represents the uniqueness of the One True God, whilst Al-Wahid refers to His indivisible wholeness and oneness. Ahad is used for Allah in the sense that He is One and Unique in every respect, Who has no connection whatsoever to plurality. This is why Ahad is used exclusively for Allah. According to Surat Ikhlās, the divine name is used in the above sense: “Say He is Allah, the One and Unique […] and none is comparable to Him.” ﴾112:1 & 4﴿
In view of the importance of this divine attribute, our words and deeds should reflect only monotheism without a single amount of polytheism. Our sincere commitment to the One True God may help us attain His pleasure. -

Here’s some advice for anyone who is struggling with losing the barakah (blessing) in their time:
One of the righteous predecessors said: “ The more I would increase my reading from the Quran (daily hizb), the more blessings I found in my time. I kept increasing a hizb each day until I reached ten Juzs (a day). “
When Al Dhyaa Al Maqdissi wanted to start his journey seeking knowledge, Ibrahim Ibn Abdul-Al Wahid Al Maqdissi advised him saying “Increase in Quran recitation and never neglect it. For indeed, it will facilitate your needs depending on how much you recite it.”
Al Dhyaa said: “I took his advised and I’ve tried it many times, the more I recited the Quran, the easier it was for me to hear a hadeeth (while attending majlis of hadeeth) and my writing would increase. And when I did not read it, I did not find ease (in my journey).”
Al Dhyaa went on to become a distinguished scholar in Hadeeth.
[Source: Dheel Tabakat Al-Hanabilah by Ibn Rajab 3/205]
If you want success in anything you do, make the Quran a part of your daily schedule, in which you read, reflect and act upon the Quran.
