Quranic verse – Muhammad (peace be upon him) is a Human Being and a Messenger, and Tawheed.

“Say: “I am only a man like you. It has been revealed to me that your God is One God. So whoever hopes for the meeting with his Lord, let him work righteousness and associate none as a partner in the worship of his Lord.

Surah Al-Kahf (18:110)

Interpretation of the meaning (Tafsir Ibn Kathir):

Muhammad (peace be upon him) is a Human Being and a Messenger, and the God is One:

Allah says to His Messenger Muhammad , “Say” to these idolators who reject your message to them, “`I am only a man like you.” – Whoever claims that I am lying, let him bring something like this that I have brought. For I did not know the Unseen, the matters of the past which you asked me about and I told you about, the story of the people of the Cave and of Dhul-Qarnayn, stories which are true — I did not know any of this except for what Allah made known to me. And I tell you, “that your God,”  – Who calls you to worship Him, “is One God,” –  with no partner or associate.

So whoever hopes for the meeting with his Lord,” – i.e., hopes for a good reward and recompense, “let him work righteousness” –  meaning, in accordance with the prescribed laws of Allah, “and associate none as a partner in the worship of his Lord.” – This is what is meant by seeking the pleasure of Allah alone with no associate or partner.
