— The Prophet Muhammad (p) was asked by his contemporaries about Allah. The answer came directly from God Himself in the form of a short chapter of the Qur ” an that is considered the essence of the Unity of God or the motto of monotheism. “Say: He is Allah, the One; Allah, the Eternal, Absolute; He beget teth not, nor is He begotten, and there is none like unto Him.” [Al-Qur ” an 112: 1-4] — Having achieved this knowledge of the One True God, man should constantly have faith in Him, and should allow nothing to induce him to deny the truth. When true faith enters a person’s heart, it impacts the person’s outlook and behavior. The Prophet said, “Faith is that which resides firmly in the heart and which is proved by deeds.” One of the striking results of faith is the feeling of gratitude towards God, which could be said to be the essence of I bada (worship).
The feeling of gratitude is so important that anyone denying the Truth is called kafir, ‘one who is ungrateful.’ A believer loves, and is grateful to God for the bounties He bestowed upon him.
He is aware of the fact that his good deeds are far from being commensurate with Divine favors, and therefore he is always anxious to please God. He remembers God often. The Qur ” an promotes this feeling of gratitude by repeating the attributes of God very frequently. “Allah is He, than Whom there is no other god; Who knows (all things) both secret and open; He, Most Gracious, Most Merciful. Allah is He, than Whom there is no other god; the Sovereign, the Holy One, the Source of Peace (and Perfection), the Guardian of Faith, the Preserver of Safety, the Exalted in Might, the Irresistible, the Supreme: Glory to Allah! (High is He) above the partners they attribute to Him. He is Allah, the Creator, the E volver, the Bestowed of Forms (or Colors).
In the chapter titled Rebellion (or his book title), Feodor Dostoevski's character, Ivan Karamazov, demonstrates that his angry and resentful attitude is the by-product of his very choosing. The fundamental principal of our own humanity is God's acknowledgment of our expression of free will. Found between the boundaries of man's ownership of worldly acts and thoughts, which can lead him to an ...
To Him belong the Most Beautiful Names: whatever is in the heavens and on earth, doth declare His Praises and Glory: and He is the Exalted in Might, the Wise.” [Al-Qur ” an 59: 22-24]”Allah! There is no god but He, the Living, the Self-subsisting, Eternal. No slumber can seize Him nor sleep. His are all things in the heavens and on earth. Who is there can intercede in His presence except as He permit teth? He knoweth what (appear eth to His creatures as) before or after or behind them. Nor shall they compass aught of His knowledge except as He will eth. His Throne doth extend over the heavens and the earth, and He feel eth no fatigue in guarding and preserving them for He is the Most High, the Supreme (in glory).” [Al-Qur ” an 2: 255]”O People of the Book! Commit no excesses in your religion: Nor say of Allah aught but the truth.
Christ Jesus the son of Mary was (no more than) a messenger of Allah, and His Word, which He bestowed on Mary, and a spirit proceeding from Him: so believe in Allah and His messengers. Say not “Trinity”: desist: it will be better for you: for Allah is one Allah: Glory be to Him: (far exalted is He) above having a son. To Him belong all things in the heavens and on earth. And enough is Allah as a Disposer of affairs.” [Al-Qur ” an 4: 171] — web Pillars. asp — God says: ‘Will they not then consider the Qur ” an with care? If it had been from other than Allah they would have found therein much discrepancy.’ (Qur ” an 4: 82) Here God challenges people to find an error in the Qur ” an. If it contains errors then it cannot be from God.
If, on the other hand, it had been the production of a human being it would definitely contain errors. A human writer 1400 years ago would have written on the basis of the level of knowledge of his or her day. And many of those ideas would turn out to be false later as humankind learns more, especially in the field of science. Besides having the Qur ” an committed to memory, the Prophet () made special arrangements to have the Qur ” an committed to writing as well. Zayid I bne Tha abit says: ‘I used to write down the words of whee for him. When whee came to him he felt burning with heat and the drops of perspiration would start rolling down on his body like pearls.

This therefore leads the two religions to follow different paths of worship even if they worship the same god. Christianity was founded from Judaism. The first people to convert to ...
When this state would go away from him, I would present myself before him with shoulder-bone or a piece (of something else).
He would go on dictating and I would go on writing. When I would be finished with writing, the shear weight of copying the Qur ” an would give me the feeling that my leg is going to break and that I will never be able to walk. In any case, when I would be finished with writing, he would say: ‘Read.’ I would read it back to him if there was a shortcoming, he would have it corrected and then let it be known to people.
