What is Monotheism in All religions?...10

ALL RELIGIONS ULTIMATELY BELIEVE IN  MONOTHEISM : All major religions that believe In the existence of God ultimately, on a higher level, believe in one supreme God. All religious scriptures actually speak about monotheism i.e.   Belief in only one true God. People change scriptures for their benefit: By the passage of time most of the religious scriptures have been distorted and changed by people for their own benefits. The creed of many religions has thus been distorted from monotheism to pantheism or polytheism. The Holy Quran says: “Then woe to those who write The Book with their own hands, and then say: “This is from Allah,” To traffic with it for a miserable price! Woe to them for what their hands Do write, and for the gain They make thereby.” (Holy Quran 2:79) TAWHEED: Definition and Categories: Islam believes in ‘Tawheed’   which is not merely monotheism i.e. belief in one unique God, but much more. Tawheed literally means “unification” i.e. “asserting one

Attributes of God...9

Attribute of God To Allah belong the most beautiful names: The Holy Quran says: “Say: call upon Allah, or call upon Rahman: By whatever name you call upon Him, (it is well): for to Him belong The Most Beautiful Names.” (Holy Quran 17:110) A similar message regarding the beautiful names of Allah is repeated in the Holy Quran in: Surah Al-Aaraf (7:180), in Surah Taha (20:8) and In Surah Al-Hashr (59:23-24) The Quran fives no less than 99 different attributes to Almighty God and the crowning one is Allah. The Quran refers to Allah as Ar-Rehman (Most Gracious), Ar-Raheem (Most Merciful) and Al-Hakeem (All Wise) among many other names. You can call Allah by any name but that name should be beautiful and should not conjure up a mental picture. Each attribute of God is unique   And possessed by Him alone Not only does God possess unique attributes, but also each attribute of Almighty God is sufficient to identify Him.   I shall clarify this point in detail.

Concept of God in Islam...8 (2)

By what name do we call God? The Muslims prefer calling Allah, instead if the English word “God”. The Arabic word ”Allah”, is pure and unique, unlike the English word “God”, which can be played around with. If you add ‘s’ to the word God, it becomes ‘Gods‘, that is the plural of God. Allah is one and singular, there is no plural of Allah. If you add ‘dess’ to the word God, it becomes ‘Goddess’ that is a female God. There is nothing like male Allah or female Allah. Allah has no gender. If you pre-fix tin before the word God, it becomes tin-God i.e., fake God. Allah is a unique word which does jot conjure up any mental picture nor can it be played around with.     Therefore the Muslims   prefer saying ‘Allah’ , but sometimes while speaking to the non-Muslims we may have to use the inappropriate word God for Allah. Since the intended audience of this book is general in nature, consisting of both Muslims as well as non-Muslims, I have use the word God instead of Allah in severa
