God is described in chapter 112 of the Qur'an as: "Say: He is God, the One and Only; God, the Eternal, Absolute; He begetteth not, nor is He begotten; And there is none like unto Him." Muslims and Jews repudiate the Christian doctrine of the Trinity and divinity of Jesus, comparing it to polytheism. In Islam, God is beyond all comprehension and Muslims are not expected to visualize God. God is described and referred to by certain names or attributes, the most common being Al-Rahmān, meaning "The Compassionate" and Al-Rahīm, meaning "The Merciful"
(Muehlenberg, 2013) The Quran is the ultimate, faultless, and collective message of Allah. Scuffles concerning the Bible and the Quran are because of Christian and Jewish modifications and exploitations of the Biblical text. (Muehlenberg, 2013) God Allah is totally transcendent and unreachable to humanity. They have
But those who are too arrogant to worship me will surely find themselves in hell, in humiliation. (Qur’an 40:60). The above mentioned Qur’an verse clearly shows the important of seeking help and supplicating to Allah. Dua’a in Islam is a spiritual means by which the believer praises, beseeching for help and guidance from Allah Almighty. It is a great form of worship in Islam, it serves as the weapon for the believer, it is the crucial bond between the creator and His slaves and also the best thing that Allah Almighty requests from His servant to engage in day and night, though Allah Almighty is not in need of any creation.
Addressing the whole of humanity as a single Ummah the Qur’an invites all humans to cultivate an attitude of peace(Ahmed 2015). Qur’an says: “And Allah calls to the abode of peace, and leads whom He will to a straight path” (Qur’an, 10:25). The word peace in its different forms appears in around one hundred and thirty-eight places in the Qur’an(Ahmed 2015). In the same vein Badawi, (2015) adds, the Qur’anic Arabic Term Jihad has been commonly mistranslated as “Holy War”. The Qur’an was revealed in Arabic, not in English.
For many Muslims, experience and intuition work hand in hand, along with the logic that helps them in arriving at the Islamic faith. According to Parrot (n.p. ), Islam believes in the existence of God in many ways. One is that Muslims believe that God or Allah holds a higher power and that no one on this planet should know that his lord is Allah. Additionally, Islamic religion would respond to the atheists ' claim that the idea of God is
Vastly it implies attributing divine characteristics to any other besides Allah and associating partners in worship with Allah. Another way to put it which is most frequently seen or practiced among Muslims is the belief that the source of power, harm or blessings is from others besides Allah. Since it violates the belief that forms the basis of religion Islam it is the one sin that Allah has rendered unforgivable and promised retribution It only makes sense that the act of denying Allah’s omnipotence has been mentioned frequently in the Quran to instill the significance of this belief among his followers. The focus here is on many obligations placed upon a Muslim being yet it shows that belief in His omnipotence is inseparable from the religion to the extent that it appears this often in the Quran. It also lines up with the fact that shirk is the biggest of sins which should be avoided at all costs for which the Quran has a lot to say to motivate believers to
In some issue, the Al-Quran is silent about it. That does not mean that Allah has forgotten to place something in the Qur’an, It is clear that Allah’s intention is to gives our human to express our mind and collective genius to solve our own problem. For example, the system of ‘democracy’ is practiced here in Malaysia. In order to understand the interpretation of the Al-Quran, there are some scholar who emphasize on the aspect of history, there
Religious Jews describe their religion as the expression of the compatible link between God and the Sons of Israel. Judaism came from polytheistic beliefs of ancient Jews and since the 7th century BC it has become monotheistic. The main characters in the history of Judaism are the patriarchs Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, and the prophet Moses. Sacred texts of Judaism refer to the Hebrew Bible or Tanakh in its original name. Other sacred books are Talmud, Midrash, Mishnah, and Torah, which is believed to be received by Moses from God at Mountain Sinai.
A further example of duty to Allah from the Quran is: ‘And never say of anything, “Indeed, I will do that tomorrow,” except [when adding], “If Allah wills.”’ (Surbat al Kahf 18:23). These quotes illustrate that happiness comes from thinking about others and worshiping and loving God. However, non-religious people can have similar values (e.g. compassion, selfless giving, gratitude and courage) without messages from the Bible or other religious books. Moreover, consumerism can be an expression of kindness and consideration through the act of giving.
