The Concept of God in Islam (part 1 of 2): A Unique Concept

It is a known fact that every language has one or more terms that are used to refer to God and sometimes to lesser deities at the same time. This is not the case with Allah. Allah is the personal name of the One true God. Nothing else can be called Allah. The term has no plural or gender. This shows its uniqueness when compared with the word “god,” which can be made plural, as in “gods,” or made feminine, as in “goddess.” It is interesting to note that Alah is the personal name of God in Aramaic, the language of Jesus and a sister language of Arabic.

The One true God is a reflection of the unique concept that Islam associates with Allah. To a Muslim, Allah is the Almighty Creator and Sustainer of the universe, Who is similar to nothing, and nothing is comparable to Him. The Prophet Muhammad was asked by his contemporaries about Allah; the answer came directly from Allah Himself in the form of a short chapter of the Quran, which is considered to be the essence of the unity or the motto of monotheism. This is chapter 112, which reads:

“In the name of Allah, the Merciful, the Compassionate.”

“Say (O Muhammad), He is Allah, the One God, the Self-Sufficient, who has not begotten, nor has been begotten, and equal to Him is not anyone.”

Some non-Muslims allege that God in Islam is a stern and cruel God who demands to be obeyed fully and is, consequently, not loving and kind. Nothing could be farther from the truth than this allegation. It is enough to know that, with the exception of one, each of the 114 chapters of the Quran begins with the verse, “In the name of God, the Merciful; the Compassionate.” In one of the sayings of Prophet Muhammad, may the mercy and blessings of God be upon him, we are told that:

“God is more loving and kind than a mother to her dear child.”

On the other hand, God is also Just. Hence, evildoers and sinners must have their share of punishment, and the virtuous must have God’s bounties and favors. Actually, God’s attribute of Mercy has full manifestation in His attribute of Justice. People suffering throughout their lives for His sake should not receive similar treatment from their Lord as people who oppress and exploit others their whole lives. Expecting similar treatment for them would amount to negating the very belief in the accountability of man in the Hereafter and thereby negate all the incentives for a moral and virtuous life in this world. The following Quranic verses are very clear and straightforward in this respect.

“Verily, for the Righteous are gardens of Delight, in the Presence of their Lord. Shall We then treat the people of Faith like the people of Sin? What is the matter with you? How judge you?” (Quran 68:34-36)

Islam rejects characterizing God in any human form or depicting Him as favoring certain individuals or nations on the basis of wealth, power or race. He created human-beings as equals. They may distinguish themselves and get His favor through virtue and piety only.

The concepts, such as God resting on the seventh day of creation, God wrestling with one of His soldiers, God being an envious plotter against mankind, or God being incarnate in any human being, are considered blasphemy from the Islamic point of view.

The unique usage of Allah as a personal name of God is a reflection of Islam’s emphasis on the purity of the belief in God that is the essence of the message of all God’s messengers. Because of this, Islam considers associating any deity or personality with God as a deadly sin that God will never forgive, despite the fact that He may forgive all other sins.

The Creator must be of a different nature from the things created because, if He is of the same nature as they are, He will be temporal and will therefore need a maker. It follows, therefore, that nothing is like Him. Furthermore, if the Maker is not temporal, then He must be eternal. If He is eternal, however, He cannot be caused, and if nothing caused Him to come into existence, nothing outside Him causes Him to continue to exist, which means that He must be self-sufficient. And if He does not depend on anything for the continuance of His own existence, then this existence can have no end, so the Creator is, therefore, eternal and everlasting. Hence we know that He is Self-sufficient or Self-subsistent, and Everlasting or, to use a Quranic term, Al-Qayyum: “He is the First and the Last.”

The Creator does not create only in the sense of bringing things into being, He also preserves them and takes them out of existence and is the ultimate cause of whatever happens to them.

“God is the Creator of everything. He is the guardian over everything. Unto Him belong the keys of the heavens and the earth…” (Quran 39:62-63)

And God says:

“No creature is there crawling on the earth, but its provision rests on God. He knows its lodging place and its repository…” (Quran 11:16)

Please note this video isn’t owned by any charity so please give what you can to whoever you can, whether it be your wealth, health or time. Prove that you are indeed human and did not just ignore the cries of the suffering.

For too long we have sat and watched idly as the world suffers its worst humanitarian crisis ever. As I type this note there are men, women and children starving to death in Syria, being forced to eat dry leaves just to survive. Many of us have given up hope and therefore fail to respond as we feel we are too small to save these people from a tyrant regime. Others sit and blame God as though He is responsible for allowing evil to reign supreme.

What we need to understand is that God has not left us, rather He is testing us. He does not want to see who will grant these people victory (As victory is only from Him), but rather He wants to see who is willing to do something for these people. Who is truly human? Who will make sacrifices from his time/health/wealth for these people.

I am the first hypocrite when it comes to this issue, so all I will say is God knows us best and the extent of our capabilities – and He will not hold us responsible to a degree greater than that we can bear. So give what you can. Not to save them, but to save yourself on the Day we are all held accountable over what we have done for these people. Those who are suffering will truly see brighter days as they enter Paradise in bliss God willing – but we however will have to wait until we prove to God that we were indeed human and did not just ignore them.

May Allah bless them and bless us all. Amen.

HOPE | CALLING ALL BELIEVERS

Do you know whats harder than looking at pictures of Muslims around the world suffering? …It’s thinking of what action are we going to take to let Allah know that we haven’t ignored their cries.

For it feels like we have literally came to the point where no matter what we see – we are unaffected and most likely not going to respond. And as much as it kills me to say this – it’s no surprise. For Muhammad (pbuh) warned us of a time that will come when nations will call one another to invade us, the same way they would call one another to a plate of food.

Why did Muhammad (pbuh) compare us to food?!! Because food is lifeless. It doesn’t respond when you eat it. No matter how much of the plate you were to eat – it would never fight back nor respond. And this is exactly what we have become. My self first and foremost.

We have become large in number but weak in nature. We have fell in love with this world and neglected the pursuit of the here after. We left Allah, so Allah is waiting for us to return to Him. Waiting for us to leave our sins and run back to His path.

I’m very sorry if this message is harsh. But I want everyone to know that this is the only hope we have to achieving victory. I urge everyone to please SHARE this video. It is a strong reminder.

Let us all change together, leave the love for this world before it leaves us all behind. May Allah make us all steadfast. Amen.

What has come to this world? Is there any hope? The Muslims are being eaten like food all across the globe and the Muslims haven’t even responded – Will we ever respond? This is no surprise as the hadith of Muhammad (pbuh) foretold that the Muslims will become like food… YES FOOD!! How will we become like food? We will become a nation that has no resistance. There is no red line. No matter what others will do to us, they will eat us however they like and we will never respond or fight back. Oh Muslims, we must stand up. We have one last and final hope – and this is to turn to Allah’s way and defend our honour. Calling all believers to stand up!
