In this human or conscious world everyone wants to know The Supreme Power who created this world. Universe is still in expansion mode with millions of millions births and deaths(transitions). Some people gets frustrated and just accept God as something a powerful existence. Mostly people believe in different religion or faiths and they know little bit about the Supreme power but I think, the attention of humans are same but directions maybe different from each other. Today our topic is on Concept about The God In Islam.
What is The God
The God is perceived as the Supreme being in monotheism. There are many faiths and concepts in this world. read more
Meaning Of Allah(اللہ)
Allah is an Arabic language word for The God. In Arab all monotheistic religions(Christianity and Islam) are using this word for The God.
What is Allah
The Artist shows his essence of love, attribute and skills in his painting or Art rather then himself. Allah is also (al-Musawwir) The Fashioner, The Bestower of Forms, The Shaper.
Allah isn’t a thing, number or similar to anything. Allah is only entity. In other religions, concept of God is like (simile) human or most people perceives him in any shape or body but concept of God in Islam is very strong and absolute. Allah isn’t any matter (element or wave etc) neither a form of matter nor unformed of matter. He creates matter. Everything in universe(s) are created and then creating through different matters(elements and wave).Allah said in The Quran
لَهُ مُلْكُ السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالْأَرْضِ ۖ يُحْيِي وَيُمِيتُ ۖ وَهُوَ عَلَىٰ كُلِّ شَيْءٍ قَدِيرٌ - 57:2
His is the dominion of the heavens and earth. He gives life and causes death, and He is over all things competent.
In this verse Allah explains that everything and acts are controlled by Allah and his dominance is over heavens and earth. The strong evidence is stated below
ۚلَيْسَ كَمِثْلِهِ شَيْءٌ ۖ -
nothing is similar to him,
Allah Almighty does not have any similarity with anything(smaller particle is atom and its a thing). Thats why we cant detect him from any law and methods of Physics or chemistry rather even we cant feel him because our body is colony of atom(شَيْ) our whole senses are based over atomic and subatomic particles and tendencies. If Allah wills then all act will happens.
According to islam, this is first introduction from Allah for his creation
لآ اِلَهَ اِلّا اللّهِ
There is no creator(God) but Allah
Islam is a monotheistic religion in which the concept about ” The God ” is given by Divine himself. There is Only One God and in One state. Allah is creator and sustainer. The complete concept is given in The Holy Quran.
-قُلْ هُوَ اللَّهُ أَحَدٌ- اللَّهُ الصَّمَدُ - لَمْ يَلِدْ وَلَمْ يُولَدْ - وَلَمْ يَكُن لَّهُ كُفُوًا أَحَدٌ
Say, "He is Allah, [who is] One,Allah, the Eternal Refuge.He neither begets nor is born,Nor is there to Him any equivalent."
Who is Allah(The God)
According to Islamic sacred text (The Holy Quran) which revealed over The Last Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) from Allah (The God). Allah introduces himself in different verses but we are explaining some of them.
هُوَ الَّذِي خَلَقَ لَكُم مَّا فِي الْأَرْضِ جَمِيعًا ثُمَّ اسْتَوَىٰ إِلَى السَّمَاءِ فَسَوَّاهُنَّ سَبْعَ سَمَاوَاتٍ ۚ وَهُوَ بِكُلِّ شَيْءٍ عَلِيمٌ
It is He who created for you all of that which is on the earth. Then He directed Himself to the heaven, [His being above all creation], and made them seven heavens, and He is Knowing of all things.(2:29)
Existence Of Allah
Presence of Allah is everywhere in every direction and dimension.for human being, Allah said in The Quran:
وَلِلَّهِ الْمَشْرِقُ وَالْمَغْرِبُ ۚ فَأَيْنَمَا تُوَلُّوا فَثَمَّ وَجْهُ اللَّهِ ۚ إِنَّ اللَّهَ وَاسِعٌ عَلِيمٌ
And to Allah belongs the east and the west. So wherever you [might] turn, there is the Face of Allah . Indeed, Allah is all-Encompassing and Knowing.
Allah Almighty is very closed with his creation. Allah is mentioning the location of his closeness in his creation and choses heart which is Central for All senses.
وَلَقَدْ خَلَقْنَا الْإِنسَانَ وَنَعْلَمُ مَا تُوَسْوِسُ بِهِ نَفْسُهُ ۖ وَنَحْنُ أَقْرَبُ إِلَيْهِ مِنْ حَبْلِ الْوَرِيدِ-
And We have already created man and know what his soul whispers to him, and We are closer to him than [his] jugular vein(50:16)
Does Allah connects with us ?
He loves his creation and when believer is praying, he responds to him or if someone wants to communicate with him the permission is given by Allah. In The Quran Allah said.
وَقَالَ رَبُّكُمُ ادْعُونِي أَسْتَجِبْ لَكُمْ ۚ إِنَّ الَّذِينَ يَسْتَكْبِرُونَ عَنْ عِبَادَتِي سَيَدْخُلُونَ جَهَنَّمَ دَاخِرِينَ - 40:60
And your Lord says, "Call upon Me; I will respond to you." Indeed, those who disdain My worship will enter Hell [rendered] contemptible.
The human beings speaks with Allah from behind the partition(حِجَابٍ). A word partition is still valid for believers.The holy revelations ended over The Last Prophet Muhammad(PBUH) and he was also the last messenger of Allah. Allah clearly said in this verse:
وَمَا كَانَ لِبَشَرٍ أَن يُكَلِّمَهُ اللَّهُ إِلَّا وَحْيًا أَوْ مِن وَرَاءِ حِجَابٍ أَوْ يُرْسِلَ رَسُولًا فَيُوحِيَ بِإِذْنِهِ مَا يَشَاءُ ۚ إِنَّهُ عَلِيٌّ حَكِيمٌ - 42:51
And it is not for any human being that Allah should speak to him except by revelation or from behind a partition or that He sends a messenger to reveal, by His permission, what He wills. Indeed, He is Most High and Wise.
Allah is immortal and never sleeps or drowsiness overtakes Him. Allah said in The Quran 2:255
اللَّهُ لَا إِلَٰهَ إِلَّا هُوَ الْحَيُّ الْقَيُّومُ ۚ لَا تَأْخُذُهُ سِنَةٌ وَلَا نَوْمٌ ۚ لَّهُ مَا فِي السَّمَاوَاتِ وَمَا فِي الْأَرْضِ ۗ مَن ذَا الَّذِي يَشْفَعُ عِندَهُ إِلَّا بِإِذْنِهِ ۚ يَعْلَمُ مَا بَيْنَ أَيْدِيهِمْ وَمَا خَلْفَهُمْ ۖ وَلَا يُحِيطُونَ بِشَيْءٍ مِّنْ عِلْمِهِ إِلَّا بِمَا شَاءَ ۚ وَسِعَ كُرْسِيُّهُ السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالْأَرْضَ ۖ وَلَا يَئُودُهُ حِفْظُهُمَا ۚ وَهُوَ الْعَلِيُّ الْعَظِيمُ - 2:255
Allah - there is no deity except Him, the Ever-Living, the Sustainer of [all] existence. Neither drowsiness overtakes Him nor sleep. To Him belongs whatever is in the heavens and whatever is on the earth. Who is it that can intercede with Him except by His permission? He knows what is [presently] before them and what will be after them, and they encompass not a thing of His knowledge except for what He wills. His Kursi extends over the heavens and the earth, and their preservation tires Him not. And He is the Most High, the Most Great.
Aristotle said “anyone who’s born will die and anyone who’s never born will never die”. Begotten and death are two states of transitions and only matter(element)transits or change but Allah is in one state.
Plotinus said in his book that “immortal can never be a mortal if he wish and mortal can never be a immortal”
