This is a Day on which the truthful will profit from their truth.

"This is the Day when Tawhid will benefit those who believed in it."

means, this is the great success, other than which there is no greater success.

لِمِثْلِ هَـذَا فَلْيَعْمَلِ الْعَـمِلُونَ

وَفِى ذَلِكَ فَلْيَتَنَافَسِ الْمُتَنَـفِسُونَ

And for this let (all) those strive who want to strive. (83;26)
