Imaan 101


Only Allah Is Worshipped

Every family has a head, every school has a principal, every province has a premier, moreover we know that every product is the work of a certain producer. In the like manner there is a Creator and Originator of life and the universe. There is a Supreme Being who controls the movement of the sun and the moon, who causes life and death. The Maker and Sustainer of the world is the Almighty, the Eternal and the Compassionate - ALLAH. This what all Muslims believe.

Evidence of Allah's existence is stated in the Holy Qur'an:

"Behold! In the creation of the heavens and the earth and the alternation of the day and night, there are indeed signs for men of intellect."

The Qur'an informs:

"Among His signs, is (that) He created you from dust and behold! You are men scattered (far and wide)."

The Qur'an further states:

"Who is it that created the heavens and the earth, who sends rain down to you from the sky and with it He causes well planted orchards to grow - full of beauty and delight. It is not in your power to cause the growth of trees. (Can there be another ) deity besides Allah?"


The Holy Qur'an states:

"Say He Allah - the one and only. Allah the eternal and absolute. He begetteth not, nor is He begotten. (i.e. He was not born from anybody nor has He any children). And there is none like unto Him." (Surah Al-Ikhlas)


Allah Almighty is one, who has no partner nor son. He has no beginning nor end. He is beyond human comprehension. He is without needs and thus independent and He alone is the originator of the entire creation. Whatever He has commanded us to do, it is for our own benefit and good.

The Holy Qur'an states:

"The originator of the heavens and earth - How can He have a son, when He has no spouse? He created all things and He has knowledge of all things."

The Holy Qur'an informs:

"That is Allah - your Lord, There is no diety but He, The Creator of all things, Therefore worship Him..."
