Servitude in “Lord of all the Worlds”

Reciting the statement; “Lord of all the worlds” wherein the servitude to Allah manifests itself through the acknowledgement of the salve of Allah of the singularity and exclusivity of Allah’s Lordship. And just as He is the Lord of the worlds, their Creator, the One who gives them livelihood and manages their affairs, and the One who suffices them, He is also their only Ilah that they worship exclusively, take refuge in and turn to in times of need and hardship – for indeed He is the only Lord and the only Ilah worthy of worship.
