Who Is God?

There is nothing like unto Him, and He is the Hearing, the Seeing.(Ash-Shura 42:11)

God is One. God is an eternal and timeless Reality. Everything is from Him, but He is not from anything. He is the Creator of everything. He is the Sustainer of the whole universe.

“Allah Almighty is the Ever Living, the One Who sustains and protects all that exists. Neither slumber nor sleep overtakes Him. To Him belongs whatever is in the heavens and whatever is on the earth. Who is he that can intercede with Him except with His Permission? He knows what happens to them (His creatures) in this world, and what will happen to them in the Hereafter. And they will never compass anything of His Knowledge except that which He wills. His command extends over the heavens and the earth, and He feels no fatigue in guarding and preserving them. And He is the Most High, the Most Great.”
(Al-Baqarah 2:255)

“Say (O Muhammad!): “He is Allah, the One, Allah is the Self-Sufficient, Master, Whom all creatures need, He begets not, nor was He begotten, and there is none co-equal or comparable unto Him.”
(Surah al-Ikhlas 112:1-4)

Attributes of God from Qur’an

It is noteworthy that above-mentioned Surah presents a clear and lucid concept about Allah Almighty, the concept that is far from those impurities, defects and stains that were added to the faith of Monotheism across the human history. Allah is not many, He is only One, everything needs Him, He needs nothing, He is Master of all things by Himself, He was not begotten and He does not beget. He is too Exalted to begot or to be begotten. He is the Eternal and Absolute. No one and nothing is equal to Him in
any sense.[1]

Consequently, this verifies the invalidity of all sorts of godhood attributed to human beings, stone, animal, river, sun, moon, earth, fire etc. The above mentioned facts clarify the falsehood of idolatry, the worship of cows, the worship of vulva and private part of a male.[2]

Thus, even a common person can compare between the sublime and pure principles of Islamic faith and between the descriptions and attributes of God and His divinity in Hindu scriptures. I think that even an ordinary individual does not need long thinking and deep knowledge to distinguish between the purity of Islamic faith and between the imperfections and serious flaws in the doctrines other than Islam about Allah the Almighty and His attributes.

Think! Before It’s Too Late

O my brother! Be careful and think about both beliefs and judge fairly which one is more practicable and more useful for you in this world and the Hereafter? This life is an exam and test, it is only seventy or eighty years and then everyone will die and would be held accountable for their choice and the argument would be proved against you and the chance would be missed forever.

Allah Almighty says:

“And be afraid of the Day when you shall be brought back to Allah. Then every person shall be paid what he earned, and they shall not be dealt with unjustly.”
