Who Is God?

Who Is God?

By Editorial Staff

Who is AllahWho is Allah? Is Allah the same God of the Bible? Or Is Allah a different God? Is Allah the same God of Moses, Abraham, Jacob and other prophets?

Was Muhammad calling to worship a new God?

What is the origin of the word Allah in Arabic?

What is the religion of Islam about?

What is the Shari`ah?

About Allah, we read in the Quran what gives the meaning of:

Say, “Who is Lord of the seven heavens and Lord of the Great Throne?” They will say, “[They belong] to Allah .” Say, “Then will you not fear Him?” Say, “In whose hand is the realm of all things – and He protects while none can protect against Him – if you should know?” They will say, “[All belongs] to Allah .” Say, “Then how are you deluded?” Rather, We have brought them the truth, and indeed they are liars. Allah has not taken any son, nor has there ever been with Him any deity. [If there had been], then each deity would have taken what it created, and some of them would have sought to overcome others. Exalted is Allah above what they describe [concerning Him]. (Al-Mu’imnun 23:86-91)

And if you asked them, “Who sends down rain from the sky and gives life thereby to the earth after its lifelessness?” they would surely say ” Allah .” Say, “Praise to Allah “; but most of them do not reason. (Al-`Ankabut 29:63)

[More precisely], is He [not best] who created the heavens and the earth and sent down for you rain from the sky, causing to grow thereby gardens of joyful beauty which you could not [otherwise] have grown the trees thereof? Is there a deity with Allah ? [No], but they are a people who ascribe equals [to Him]. Is He [not best] who made the earth a stable ground and placed within it rivers and made for it firmly set mountains and placed between the two seas a barrier? Is there a deity with Allah ? [No], but most of them do not know. Is He [not best] who responds to the desperate one when he calls upon Him and removes evil and makes you inheritors of the earth? Is there a deity with Allah ? Little do you remember. Is He [not best] who guides you through the darknesses of the land and sea and who sends the winds as good tidings before His mercy? Is there a deity with Allah ? High is Allah above whatever they associate with Him. Is He [not best] who begins creation and then repeats it and who provides for you from the heaven and earth? Is there a deity with Allah ? Say, “Produce your proof, if you should be truthful.” Say, “None in the heavens and earth knows the unseen except Allah, and they do not perceive when they will be resurrected.” (An-Naml 27:59-65)

Dialogue between a Believer and an Atheist on Why We Need Religion

The essential difference between religion and man-made law is Allah.

Really, why do we need a religion? We have our minds, thoughts and intelligence. We even developed artificial intelligence. We invented the mico-chips and designed satellites. We are in the 21st century.

Who has inflicted on miserable mankind the tragedies of poisonous gas, highly explosive products, experiments of fertility, heavy heavy artillery, justification of mass killing based on false scientific arguments, nuclear arms, etc.?

Do you want to hear more?

Look at the world’s problems, poverty, wars, suicide, unjustified killing, madness, etc.

Do we trust man’s reason which caused all this mass destruction?

Why do religious people commit crimes?

What is the essential difference between religion and man-made laws?

Why do atheist people swear by God during speech?

Isn’t it logical for them to swear by reason or evolution chain?

Why do people appeal to God in difficult situations?

Watch this short dialogue between a believer and an atheist to find the answer to all these questions:

Belief in Allah

God (Allah) is the Lord of mankind.

Allah (God) says in the Quran describing Himself:

Say, “He is Allah, [who is] One, Allah, the Eternal Refuge. He neither begets nor is born, Nor is there to Him any equivalent.” (Al-Ikhlas 1:1-4)

Say, “I seek refuge in the Lord of mankind, The Sovereign of mankind. The God of mankind, From the evil of the retreating whisperer – Who whispers [evil] into the breasts of mankind – From among the jinn and mankind.” (An-Nas 114:1-6)

Allah – there is no deity except Him, the Ever-Living, the Sustainer of [all] existence. Neither drowsiness overtakes Him nor sleep. To Him belongs whatever is in the heavens and whatever is on the earth. Who is it that can intercede with Him except by His permission? He knows what is [presently] before them and what will be after them, and they encompass not a thing of His knowledge except for what He wills. His Kursi extends over the heavens and the earth, and their preservation tires Him not. And He is the Most High, the Most Great. (Al-Baqarah 2:255)

A Call to Go Back to the Natural Disposition

A Call to Go Back to the Natural Disposition

By Editorial Staff
A Call to Go Back to the Natural Disposition

And in yourselves. Then will you not see? (Adh-Dhariyat 51:21)

Look at the universe around you. Who runs this universe and that He is always of in full control of it?

In the Quran we read:

Indeed, Allah holds the heavens and the earth, lest they cease. And if they should cease, no one could hold them [in place] after Him. Indeed, He is Forbearing and Forgiving. (Fatir 35:41)

Look into yourself.  Every single cell points to the existence of God. We read in the Quran:

And in yourselves. Then will you not see? (Adh-Dhariyat 51:21)

Plants and galaxies point to the existence of God.

Who takes care of the embryo in the deep darkness surrounding it? None other than God.

We read in the Quran:

Do the disbelievers not see how rain clouds are formed, how the heavens are lifted, how the mountains are raised high, how the earth is spread out? (Al-Ghashiyah 88:17-20)

No matter how accumulated the clouds of suspicions to prevent the truth light from reaching the insights, the fact that this universe has a creator will remain firm and undeniable in the hearts.

It is a fact uttered by every atom of the universe and every human emotion that is deeply rooted in his heart. Man longs for an Exalted creator who subjugated his servants and predestined their affairs.

It is a matter that no one may disclaim.

Here we tell you about that fact and reflect with you on its evidence around us so that you think about going back to your natural disposition.

Whom Must We Worship?

Whom Must We Worship?

Allah written in Arabic and English

Allah is the Name of the One True God. His Name is not chosen by man and does not have a number or gender.

By Dr. Saleh As-Saleh

The submission of man to His Creator is the essence of Islam. The name “Islam” is chosen by God (Allah) and not by man. It is the same unifying Message revealed to all the Prophets and Messengers by Allah and which they spread amongst their respective nations. In its final form it was revealed to Muhammad (peace be upon him) as a complete Message to whole mankind.

The Lord, Allah, is the True and Only Creator that deserves to be worshipped. No worship is worthy of being given to a stone, statue, a cross, a triangle, Khomeini, Farakhan, Eliajahs, or Y, Ghandi, Krishna, Guru, Buddha, Mahatma, Emperor, Joseph Smith, Sun, Light, Fire, rivers, cows, Rama, Temples, Prophets, Messengers (Yes! Muslims do not worship Muhammad, peace be upon him), Saints, Priests, Monks, Movie Stars, Sheiks, etc.!!! All are created beings or things.

Allah is the Name of the One True God. His Name is not chosen by man and does not have a number or gender. It is known that Allah is the Name of God in Aramaic, the language of our beloved Prophet Jesus and a sister language of Arabic. The Name “Allah” has been used by all previous Prophets starting with Adam and by the last and final Prophet, Muhammad (peace be upon them all).

The Innate Nature in man recognizes what is good and bad, what is true and false. It recognizes that the Attributes of Allah must be True, Unique, and All-Perfect. It does not feel comfortable towards any kind of degradation of His Attributes not does it qualities to the Creator. Many who became “discontent with God” did so because of the practices of the Church in medieval Europe and because of the claims of “god dwelling in a son” and the concept of the “original sin”. However, they “escaped” into worshipping a new theory called “mother nature” as well as the “material” World. With the advancement of materialistic technology, people from different religions adopted the concept of “forgetting about God” and “let us live this life and enjoy it!”, not realizing that they have chosen the worship of the “original god” of Rome: Desire!. As a result the “enjoyment” is turning to “suffering” from AIDS.

Now we can see that all of this materialistic and secular progress produced a spiritual vacuum that led to complex social, economic, political, and psychological problems. Many of those who “fled” their “religions” are in search again. Some try to “escape” the complexity of their daily lives via various means.

Those who had the chance to examine the Qur’an and Islam, proceed with a complete way of life that relates man to establish a purpose for his presence on earth. This is well recognized in the Attributes of Allah and what does He require from man. He does not want man to be enslaved to any false deity: nature, drugs, lust, money, other man, desire, or sex. He provides man with the proofs that He is the One who can redeem so that man can free himself from the slavery to any form of creation and to turn to his Creator Alone.

This Creator Has Perfect Attributes. He is the First, nothing is before Him, the Ever Living. To Him is the Final Return where everyone will be dealt with in the Most Perfect and Just way. He does not beget nor is He begotten. Those who attribute Divinity to Jesus forget or ignore the fact that Jesus was in a mother’s womb. He needed nutrition; he was born and grew up to be a man. He was trusted with the Gospel as a Message to the Children of Israel:

“For there is One God, and one mediator (i.e. a messenger) between God and men (the Children of Israel), the man Christ Jesus) (I Timothy 2:5).

A man-messenger calling his nation not to worship him: “But in vain they do worship me!” (Mathew 15:9).

A man who needs to eat, walk, sleep, rest, etc.. cannot have Divine Attributes because he is in need and God (Allah) is Self-Sufficient.

As far as Buddhism, Hinduism, Zoroastrianism, Marxism, and Capitalism, there is the devotion of worshipping created being/things in one form or another. Jews had attributed a “Nationalistic” belonging to Allah. They labeled Him “The Tribal God” for the Children of Israel.

Men and women following these “religions” were born with the natural inclination of submission to their Creator, Allah. It is their parents who had driven them into their respective traditions. However, once people are exposed to the Signs of Allah around them, or in the Qur’an or to someone who triggers their fitrah (nature), the reverting process begins and that is why we see a universal spreading of Islam.

In the West and despite that many distortions of Islam in the media, many admit that Islam is the fastest growing faith. No sense of fairness can be achieved without a genuine attempt to know the Word of Allah in the Qur’an and not on the 30-min-Evening News. This is the real challenge for those who seek the Truth. Man is created for a purpose: to live a life in accordance with Allah’s way. Why Not? Do we possess the air we breathe? Did we create ourselves or others? Or were we ourselves the Creators? We are limited and weak. So is our right to ignore our Creator where we all need Him?

Islam is the submission in worship to Allah Alone and it is the essence of all the Messages sent to all nations before us. Allah is All-Just and All-Wise. He does not intend confusion for His Creation. The religion accepted to Him is the one chosen by Him. Its essence must be One, because He is One. It is free from geographical, racist, and status oriented concepts.

Islam is a perfect and complete way of life. All these qualities of God are chosen by Allah in His Only Religion: Islam. Its details are in in the Qur’an, read it and come with an open heart because none can expose better than the World of Allah. The Qur’an was revealed to Prophet Muhammad. He did not author it. He was unlettered. Its translation is available in many languages in bookstores or in an Islamic Center close to you.
