Four Categories of Tawheed?

Imām Bin Bāz was asked...

O noble father, you now have those how say that Tawheed breaks down intofour categories in which they sate that the fourth category is Tawheedul Haakimiyyah, is this correct?

The categories of Tawheed are NOT four but rather they are THREE as the people of knowledge have said. Al Haakimiyyah is included in Tawheedul ‘Ibaadah; so from the Tawheedul ‘Ibaadah is to rule by that which Allah has legislated. Therefore, the prayer, fasting, paying charity, making Hajj and ruling by that which Allah has legislated, all (of this) enters into Tawheedul ‘Ibaadah.
