THE ONESS OF Allah -THE UNIQUE MESSAGE OF ISLAM
The Word ‘Allah’
The word ‘Allah’ is the Arabic word for God as Aalah or Aaloh is the Aramaic word for God and Eloah or Elohim is the Hebrew word for God. So the origin of the word ‘Allah’ in Arabic, Aramaic, and Hebrew is the same because they are Semitic languages. The Old Testament in Hebrew used them in addressing God and they were translated into the word ‘God’ in the English version.
Also Christians and Jews in Arab countries call God ‘Allah’ because the translation of the word ‘God’ from the English version into the Arabic version of the Bible is ‘Allah’. Also some religious books of the Hindus such as book no 2 hymn no i verse ii, give God the attribute ‘ila’ which is similar to the name of God in Arabic ‘Allah’.
Allah is the only True God for the whole universe. He is the God of all
humanity, including Muslims, Jews, and Christians. He is One with no son or partner. He neither begets nor is He begotten and there is none like unto Him. Allah said: ” Say, “He is Allah, [who is] One, Allah, the Eternal Refuge. He neither begets nor is born, Nor is there to Him any equivalent.” [The Qur’an 12:1-4]
Allah is One with no son or partner. He neither begets nor is He begotten and there is none like unto Him.
The Oneness of Allah was the first message of all prophets. All prophets of Allah such as Moses and Jesus peace be upon all of them confirmed the Oneness of Allah. Deuteronomy 4:35 says: “You were shown these things so that you might know that the LORD is God; besides him there is no other”. Deuteronomy
Allah never indwells in any of His creatures nor do they indwell in Him.
6:4 says: “Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God, the LORD is one.” Mark 12:28-32 reported that one of the teachers of law asked Jesus: “Of all the commandments, which is the most important?” The most important one, answered Jesus, “is this: Hear, O Israel the Lord our God, the Lord is one…” Well said, teacher, the man replied. You are right in saying that God is one and there is no other but Him”. John 17:3 says: “Now this is eternal life: that they may know You, the only true God, and (to know) Jesus Christ, whom you have sent.”
Allah the Creator and the Sustainer
Allah is the Creator of the universe. Creation, sovereignty, and authority belong exclusively to Him. He is the Sustainer of the universe. All His creatures stand in need of Him and He stands in need of none. He accomplished all affairs with wisdom. He gives life and causes death, and He is over all things competent.
He is the Most Gracious and the Most Merciful Whose mercy encompasses all things. He is the Powerful and the Exalted in Might and no one shares His domain and power. He is just in all His decrees and far removed from injustice and tyranny.
Allah the Ever-Living and the All-Knowing
Allah is Ever-Living. He is the First before Whom there is none, the Last after Whom there is none, the Most High above Whom there is none, and the Internal nearer than Whom there is none. He is above the seven heavens, above His throne in the manner that suits His majesty. Allah never indwells in any of His creatures nor do they indwell in Him. Allah is with us through His knowledge.
He is the All-Knowing of everything, visible or invisible in the whole universe and His knowledge comprehends all things, and thus He is the All-Hearing All-Seeing.
The Oneness of Worship for Allah The oneness of worship means total submission to Allah in all aspects of life with no objection. The Qura‟n states:
“Say (O Muhammad the Prophet of Islam) my prayer, my sacrifice, my living and my dying are for Allah, the Lord of mankind, jinn (beings with free will created from fire) and all that exists ” [The Qur‟an 6: 162] Therefore, the truth is that Allah is the only One who has the right to be worshiped. Allah ordered all humans to believe that there is no god worthy of worship except Him. He called all mankind to worship Him and not to take any deity beside Him. Allah said: “O mankind, worship your Lord, who created you and those before you, that you may become righteous. [He] who made for you the earth a bed [spread out] and the sky a ceiling and sent down from the sky, rain and brought forth thereby fruits as provision for you. So do not attribute to Allah equals while you know [that there is nothing similar to Him].” [The Qur‟an 2:21-22]
The Concept of falls gods
The common concept of other religions with regards to Allah is that specific men are god(s), or Allah has partners. The Qur’an rejected this concept: ” 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]. [The Qur’an 23:91] Believing in false gods is against logic and those who believe in them have no reason to prove the truth. They follow after their parents or tribes blindly even when they see clear signs.
But those who build beliefs according to logic and reason reject false gods once they see the signs. For example, while a young man was prostrating to an idol claimed to be his god, a dog walked into the temple and urinated on the idol. He was angry toward the dog at the beginning, but after that he realized that the idol could not be the lord of the universe.
Associating a partner with Allah in any form of worship such as praying, supplication, invocation, and sacrifice is called polytheism. Polytheism is the greatest sin and whoever dies upon it he/she shall enter Hell-fire in humiliation and Allah forbids paradise for him/her. Allah said: “Indeed, Allah does not forgive association with Him, but He forgives what is less than that for whom He wills. And he who associates others with Allah has certainly fabricated a tremendous sin.” [The Qur‟an 4:48]
The Call to the People of Scriptures
Allah called the people of scriptures [Jews and Christians] to worship none but Him. Allah said: “Say, “O People of the Scripture, come to a word that is equitable between us and you – that we will not worship except Allah and not associate anything with Him and not take one another as lords instead
