Say (O Muhammad): “It is revealed to me that your God is one God. Will you then be Muslims?” ―Quran 21:108

yes Muslima and proud

You alone we worship and You alone we ask for help

— Quran 1:4

In Islam we don’t pray to any creation or through anyone, we only pray directly to The Creator, God Almighty. It’s simple and easy!

the primary pillar of Islamic belief clearly states that there is nothing worthy of worship except Allah/God. Associating partners with God or attributing qualities of lesser beings to Him is considered to be the greatest sin in Islam.

as a Muslim i believe in the Absolute Oneness of God, Who is a Supreme Being free of human limitations, needs and wants. He has no partners in His Divinity. He is the Creator of everything and is completely separate from His creation, and all worship is to be directed towards Him alone.

Allah/God is Eternal, absolute and unique.

He is God, the One. 2. God, the Absolute. 3. He begets not, nor was He begotten. 4. And there is nothing comparable to Him.

— Quran 112

This is a clear statement by God describing Himself to humanity without any room for confusion. God is One and is exalted above everything He creates.

This chapter of the Quran is about the oneness of God. The concept of God has been presented here in its purest form, ridding it of all polluting associations which people of every age have brought to it. There is no plurality of gods. There is only one God. All are dependent upon Him, but He is not dependent on anybody. He Himself has power over everything. He is far above being the progeny of anybody or having any offspring. He is such a unique being that there is nobody like Him or equal to Him in any manner whatsoever.

The doctrine of God’s pure unity, or The Divine oneness, is clearly stated here: God is not many , He is only One. Everyone is in need of Him ,but He is not in need of anyone. He reigns over all things of the heavens and the earth. Unlike human beings , He has no son or father. He is eternal ,without beginning or end, and is thus a Unique Being who has no equal.

This Chapter has been called the essence of the Quran. The prophet Muhammad, Peace Be Upon Him, once described this Chapter as

“ equivalent to one-third of the whole Quran ”

{ Bukhari and Muslim }

Muslims believe in one, unique, incomparable God, Who has no son nor partner, and that none has the right to be worshipped but Him alone. He is the true God, and every other deity is false. He has the most magnificent names and sublime perfect attributes. No one shares His divinity, nor His attributes.

No one has the right to be invoked, supplicated, prayed to, or shown any act of worship, but God alone. God alone is the Almighty, the Creator, the Sovereign, and the Sustainer of everything in the whole universe. He manages all affairs. He stands in need of none of His creatures, and all His creatures depend on Him for all that they need. He is the All-Hearing, the All-Seeing, and the All-Knowing. In a perfect manner, His knowledge encompasses all things, the open and the secret, and the public and the private. He knows what has happened, what will happen, and how it will happen. No affair occurs in the whole world except by His will. Whatever He wills is, and whatever He does not will is not and will never be. His will is above the will of all the creatures. He has power over all things, and He is able to do everything. He is the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful, and the Most Beneficent. In one of the sayings of the Prophet Muhammad , we are told that God is more merciful to His creatures than a mother to her child. God is far removed from injustice and tyranny. He is All-Wise in all of His actions and decrees. If someone wants something from God, he or she can ask God directly without asking anyone else to intercede with God for him or her.

God is only One. Everyone is in need of Him ,but He is not in need of anyone. He reigns over all things of the heavens and the earth. Unlike human beings , He has no son or father. He is eternal ,without beginning or end, and is thus a Unique Being who has no equal.

-Pure and Clear Concept of God

Unlike other religions, Islam is not named after its founder or the community of its birth. Islam is an attributive title that signifies obedience to God, the Creator of the Universe. One of its main beauties is that it acknowledges the complete perfection, greatness and uniqueness of God with absolutely no compromises. This is reflected in Islam’s pure teachings of the attributes of God.

-God is One and Unique:

God has no partners, no equals and no rivals.

God has no father, mother, sons, daughters or wives.

God alone is worthy of all worship.

-God is the All-Powerful:

God has full authority and power over all things.

Obedience to God does not increase His Power, nor does disobedience decrease His power.

-God is the Most High:

There is nothing above or comparable to God.

The attributes of God do not resemble that of His creation.

No part of God is present in anyone or anything.

-God is Perfect:

God does not have any human limitations, such as resting on the seventh day after He created the universe.

God always maintains attributes of perfection and does not do anything to compromise this perfection such as “becoming a man” as claimed by other religions. God does not do ungodly acts, so if God became man and took on human attributes, he would, necessarily, no longer be God.

-God is the Living

And put your trust in the Living, the One who never dies; and celebrate His praise. He suffices as the All-Informed Knower of the faults of His creatures.

―Quran 25:58

in order to worship God, we have to know Him well otherwise we may form a distorted concept of Him and then go astray. God is nothing like a human being or like anything that we can imagine and he is the only one worthy of worship:

There is nothing similar to God

— Quran 42:11

God is the Self-existent Who was not given life, cannot be caused to die or brought back to life by anyone else. God is eternal, without beginning or end, and is thus a Unique Being who has no equal.

What is Islam?

“Islam” is an Arabic word which means peaceful, willing submission — submission to the code of conduct ordained by God . So Islam is a religion, but it is also a complete way of life based upon a voluntary relationship between an individual and his Creator. It is the way of life ordained by God which was taught by each of His prophets and messengers, Noah, Abraham, Moses, Jesus and Muhammad (peace be upon them). What distinguishes Islam from other religions is that it refuses to accept any form of creation, whatsoever, as a deity worthy of worship. Instead, it emphasizes the exclusive worship of the one God who created the entire universe and to whom all creation will eventually return.

Monotheism is the foundation of Islam and its most important concept which cannot be compromised in any way. Not only is God acknowledged as the sole creator and sustainer of everything in existence, but Islam declares that He is the only true deity and He alone is worthy to be worshipped.

You alone we worship and You alone we ask for help

— Quran 1:4

Further, it recognizes that the attributes of God are nothing like those of His creation and cannot be compared to it; He is absolute, perfect and unique.

He is God the One. God, the Eternal, Absolute. He begets not, nor was He begotten. And there is none comparable to Him.

— Quran 112

By following God’s guidance as revealed in the Quran, an individual can obtain meaning and purpose in this live and eternal paradise in the hereafter.

I just finished reading this book “What Everyone Should Know About Islam and Muslims” by Suzanne Haneef and it was just so amazing and touching. great book. I recommend to everyone. :)
