The most trustworthy handhold-The only allegiance is to Allah (SWT) and there is complete disassociation from Kufr.
"Whoever rejects Taghout and believes in Allah will have grasped the most trustworthy handhold that will never break." [Quran 2:256]
Al-Taghout has been defined by Ibn Qayim as anything where the servant exceeds his limit of servitude.
When the complete conviction of Tawheed (i.e. to submit, to worship, to obey, to follow sincerely for Allah (SWT) ) becomes a reality in each aspect of an individuals life, man is released from all other bonds and attachments. Thus the only allegiance is to Allah (SWT) and there is complete disassociation from Kufr. This allegiance is to Allah, His deen, His books, His messengers and to the path of His good servants and purification from any Taghout
