Dua Before Starting Anything In Arabic English

In the name of Allah , the Entirely Merciful, the Especially Merciful.

Sunnah of Prophet (SAW)

Explain this supplication:

Concept of God in Islam

Monotheism, the belief in one God, is the most important and fundamental concept of Islam. Muslims believe in one God who created the universe and has all power within it. He is unique and exalted above all that he creates, and his greatness can not be compared to his creation. Moreover, he is the only one to deserve a cult and the ultimate goal of all creation is to submit to him. Islamic understanding of God is different from all other religions and beliefs in many ways because it is based on a pure and clear understanding of monotheism. This essentially reflects the concept of God in Islam, which will be developed in this booklet.

Muslims often refer to God as Allah. It is a universal name for God and does not designate an exclusively “Islamic” God. Interestingly, this name is related to the Aramaic and Hebrew names of God, Allaha and Elohim. Therefore, Allah is simply the Arabic name of God who asserts that he is a singular God without partners or equals. The name of Allah can not be pluralized or limited to a specific sex, which establishes that God is One and that He is unique to all that He creates. Muslims continue to use this original Arabic name for God (Allah) because it perfectly expresses its unique qualities.

God is the creator and supporter of the universe that created everything for a reason. Muslims believe that he created humanity for a simple purpose: to worship him. He sent messengers to guide people in achieving this goal. Some of these messengers include Adam, Noah, Abraham, Moses, Jesus and Muhammad, peace be with them. They all taught a coherent message about God by affirming His greatness as Creator and guiding people to worship Him alone. This basic concept has always resonated with people’s natural understanding of God. (Click here to learn more about the prophets in Islam.)

When the last prophet, Muhammad, peace be upon him (as), was asked about God, the answer came directly from God in the sacred book of Muslims, the Qur’an (also spelled “Qur’an”): “Say: ‘He is God the one, God the eternal. He did not spawn anyone and was not begotten. Nobody is comparable to Him. ‘[112: 1-4] This is a clear statement of God who describes himself for humanity without any margin of confusion. God is One and is exalted above all that He creates and He is capable of everything.

To accept the unity of God fully is to accept that it is distinct from all the rest. It would not be appropriate for the majesty and glory of God to associate with it the limited attributes of his creation, for he is not subject to any restrictions, contrary to his creation. He is the first without beginning and the last without end. Everything in the universe was created by His will. He is not confined by space or time and he is the only one who controls and ensures his creation.

“He is God: there is no god but him. It is He who knows what is hidden and what is in the open air, He is the Lord of Mercy, the giver of Mercy. He is God: there is no other god than him, the controller, the Holy, source of peace, guarantor of security, guardian of all, the Almighty, the Compeller, the Real Great; God is far above anything they consider to be his partner. He is God: the Creator, the Creator, the Shaper. The best names belong to him. All that is in heaven and on earth glorifies him: he is the Almighty, the Wise. “[Quran, 59: 22-24]
