The proper terminology used, in Islam, for God is “Allah.” There are a number of reasons for having a special word for God. First of all, the term “Allah” means, in Arabic, the one and only universal God or Creator and Provider of the universe.The word “Allah” is the perfect description of the “One God” of monotheism. The word “Allah” is an Arabic word that means “The God”. It originally consisted of two words: “Al Ilah”. Allah means “There is one God.” but it denotes to “the only one true God”. The word “Al” in Arabic means “the”. The word “Ilah” means God. Allah.. has no gender (not male and not female). “He” is used only out of respect and dignity – not for gender.
When the final prophet, Muhammad, pbuh, was asked about God, the answer came directly from God in the Quran which is guidance for whole mankind God describe His features in this chapter of Ikhlaas known as al-Tawhid/ “Monotheism”. : “Say, ‘He is God the One, God the eternal. He begot no one nor was He begotten. None is ever comparable to Him.’” [112 : 1-4]
This is a clear four line statement by God describing Himself to humanity without any room for confusion. God is One and is exalted above everything He creates and He is capable over all things. This is criteria and hallmark for man to judge God. Let’s see what does Quran say about Jesus pbuh.
[Jesus said], “And indeed, Allah is my Lord and your Lord, so worship Him. That is a straight path.” (Quran 19:36)
Jesus] said, “Indeed, I am the servant of Allah . He has given me the Scripture and made me a prophet. (Quran 19 : 30)
O People of the Scripture, do not commit excess in your religion or say about Allah except the truth. The Messiah, Jesus, the son of Mary, was but a messenger of Allah and His word which He directed to Mary and a soul [created at a command] from Him. So believe in Allah and His messengers. And do not say, “Trinity”; desist – it is better for you. Indeed, Allah is but one God. Exalted is He above having a son. To Him belongs whatever is in the heavens and whatever is on the earth. And sufficient is Allah as Disposer of affairs. (Quran 4 : 171)
The Quran rejects the concept of trinity. That father, the Son, the Spirit. Father is the only true God. His presences is manifested in all His attributes together, never passes away. It is eternal. Who gives life and takes life..whereas Jesus pbuh had physical body (not formless), had mither, were borne. Jesus pbuh was the messenger of God. Jesus pbuh is a son of Marry. Biblical Passages Which Explicitly Teach There is Only One God. Bible gives the same message that God is one and only one. Jesus pbuh was the servant and messenger of God.
Kings 8:60 — That all the people of the earth may know that the LORD is God, and that there is none else.
Chronicles 17:20 — O LORD, there is none like thee, neither is there any God beside thee, according to all that we have heard with our ears.
John 17:3 — And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.
Even in Hinduism they believe in one supreme God i.e Ishwar. Which is formless, one and only one, and not born.
Rigveda Book no. VI, Hymn 45, verse 16 : It is mentioned in Rigveda :“Ya Eka Ittamushtuhi” “Praise Him who is the matchless & alone”(Rigveda 6:45:16)
It is mentioned in the Chandogya Upanishad:“Ekam Evadvitiyam” “He is one only without a second.” (Chandogya Upanishad 6:2:1)
Yajurveda Chapter 32, Verse 3 : It is mentioned in Yajurveda “na tasya pratima asti” “There is no image of Him” It further says, “as He is unborn, He deserves our worship” (Yajurveda 32:3) (The Yajurveda by Devi Chand M.A. pg. 377)
ATHARVA VEDA : Atharva Veda book 20 hymn (chapter) 58 verse 3 : It is mentioned in Atharva Veda “Dev Maha Osi” “God is Verily Great.” (Atharva Veda 20:58:3)
All scriptures were a message for mankind from the same One God, instructing the same message over and over again. Over and over again because each time a scripture was sent, as time passed, civilizations and generations used the scriptures and the believes of people to accomplish their own selfish affairs and desires, causing much fabrication in the scripture and teachings of the religions. Man has through time changed the scriptures and originals sage for his own purposes through generations. Each time the message was fabricated or lost, a new messenger was sent to revive and guide man it wisdom and intellect. Man made some prophets as Gods, and some made the angels and spirits as Gods to control society and accomplish their earthly desires playing with the beliefs of people and leading them astray.
The Quran begins with the command to believe in every scripture that was sent before the Quran because they all were sent from the same One God. The above mentioned verses of the Hindu, Christian Jewish or any other religion who have a heavenly scripture are messages from the same God over long epochs and time lapses on earth. However because there is no originality left in any other scripture and also that they have been changed also and editted by human beings adding and deleting much according to their humanly reason.
God commands that in spite of believing in them all, now the only scripture that you have to abide by is the Quran, because it is the latest scripture in man’s history and is unchanged till date, in its original form. The Quran is a filter that clears out all misunderstandings of the previous idealogiens of faith and all the divine scriptures. All those scriptures are evidence to tally with the message of the Quran but now the scripture that is to be considered in completeness is only th Quran and the prophet who brought the message, prophet muhammad. Just like the previous messengers, Prophet muhammad pbuh was also blessed with miracles and supernatural powers, but that doesn’t mean he is a God.
Most people have considered the messengers also as Gods because they witnessed their act (miracles) which were beyond the natural. But God clearly states that all those were by he will and command of God, be it the miracle of Jesus or Moses (pbut) or any other human prophet that has passed before, but many people have though out of respect transgressed the boundary of faith which is monotheism. Hence to restore the order for one last and final time, God sent the Quran through the Prophet Muhammad saw as guidance for all mankind until the end of the earth and claims that there wil be no scripture or messenger to be sent hence forth and challenges mankind to try to produce even a verse like it, moreover it claims that no being in he universe will be able to produce a speech like unto the Quran. Because it is not a small deal.
The truth which man has desired to seek since ever, that truth has been sent down in the most simplest of forms in the Quran. No human can ever fathom the style and the content with with the Quran speaks. The Quran is not refuting the previous religions or scriptures because all those are area part of it, it is only refuting the falsehood invented by man and passed on through time, to maintain and restore the clarity of God for man. However the Quran clearly states, that never has a nation passed on before ever, where there were no disbelievers. And in spite of every sign and evidence shown to mankind, there will still be those who will disbelieve, claiming it to be as legends of the ancient people and consider it good only for the abstract enlightenment and metaphorically good for spirituality.
But Allah says, it is the Truth in certainty and that it is not entertainment or amusement. It is the command of God, which is right in front of the eyes of mankind being preserved and presented in their ground reality to awaken them and hint them and warn them, lest they forget God and the Day of Resurrection. Now that the final scripture has been revealed, God will bless mankind with every marvel they are to achieve and their trial will also increase because they have been given the clearest Book and legislation to tackle with flashehood in the life of the world.
The advancing of man in the recent times in technology and intelligence, all have been already complimented by The Quran mote than a millennium before. And that never think that because we have been blessed more than any other past recorded nation, we have advanced beyond faith and God and religion. It is only the greatest hint for mankind, that the final greatest seed of blessing has been sent down (Quran) until the end of time and to relate to the Quran intellect, man has to reach the peaks of advancements and then will he really interpret and understand the message f the Quran. It is not an ordinary book or speech. It warns and guides with clear evidence. There is no study or aspect of the earthly life at any given point of time, to which the Quran has not encompassed about. The same God who since the beginning nourished man to guide him to witness his own marvels, has send down for the last time, His final command and has claimed it’s guardianship until the end.
God is the Truth (the Real – Al-Haqq)” (Qur’an 22:6)
And your Allah is one Allah! there is no god but He; He is the Beneficent, the Merciful (Quran 2:163)
“Verily great is the glory of the Divine Creator” (Rigveda 5:81:1)
Zechariah 14:9 — And the LORD shall be king over all the earth: in that day shall there be one Lord, and his name one
A man of Intellectual reasoning and understanding of wordly knowledge will at once realise while reading the Quran that it is not mere words, but a miracle, that directly talks to the soul and self of the human being encompassing him and his realities completely. And that is none but God. I have described the details of God and its charcharitscs. All thanks to God who has endowed us with sense, reason, intellect and intended us to forgo their use. Hence, you think and ponder over it and let your heart decide the great reality of the Universe. That, What is the conclusive message of the God in His last and final book and how can one attain the salvation ? Finally, Who is our true God ?
And none can alter the words of Allah. And there has certainly come to you some information about the [previous] messengers. (Quran 6 : 34)
Allah says, “None can alter the words of Allah..” and Allah has said in the Quran “indeed it is We who has sent down this message, and indeed it is We who will be it’s gaurdian [until the end].” (Quran 15 : 9)
