QUESTION:

WHat is the difference in the Shia and Sunni concept of Tawheed if any?

ANSWER:

The question has been amply explained by Allama Syed Murtadha al-Askari in
his book on the subject.  English translation is available.

In short-   The Shia School believes that Allah Exists, has no physical
existence, and can never be seen.  The Sunnis believe in a Personal God,
having physical existence etc.

There is a marked difference between the two Schools.
