Islam worshippers recognize Allah, an Arabic term for God, as its central figure of worship. Muslims believe there is only one God responsible for creating and upholding all that exists – according to Islamic teachings, He is all-knowing, all-powerful, and all merciful.
1: Say, ˹O Prophet,˺ “He is Allah—One ˹and Indivisible˺;
2: Allah—the Sustainer ˹needed by all˺.
3: He has never had offspring, nor was He born.
4: And there is none comparable to Him.”
1: He is Allah—there is no god ˹worthy of worship˺ except Him: Knower of the seen and unseen. He is the Most Compassionate, Most Merciful.
2: He is Allah—there is no god except Him: the King, the Most Holy, the All-Perfect, the Source of Serenity, the Watcher ˹of all˺, the Almighty, the Supreme in Might,1 the Majestic. Glorified is Allah far above what they associate with Him ˹in worship˺!
3: He is Allah: the Creator, the Inventor, the Shaper. He ˹alone˺ has the Most Beautiful Names. Whatever is in the heavens and the earth ˹constantly˺ glorifies Him. And He is the Almighty, All-Wise.

Examples of these names and attributes include Al-Rahman (the Merciful), Al-Rahim (the Compassionate), Al-Khaliq (the Creator), Al-Malik (The King), Al-Qadir (All-Powerful) and Al-Wahid (The One).

ALLAH CREATED EVERYTHING
He is the Creator, Provider and Sustainer of all life on this planet. God is eternal; no father nor mother exist to share in his worship or share power or mercy – He alone stands supreme among the gods, being All-Knowing yet all-seeing; hearing but none equal in terms of power or mercy.
Only He breathes life while simultaneously giving death – making Him the only being unique with a distinct set of Names and Attributes!
Allah owns everything in this world and universe – including you and me. Although we may use terms such as’my hand”,’my home” and “my money”, in reality everything belongs to him alone.
GOD IS ALL-FORGIVING
Muslims believe in an all-forgiving God named Allah. According to Quran 2:186, when Allah’s followers ask about Him or seek his mercy through Muhammad or others, His knowledge makes Himself available; I respond when a suppliant calls on Me (Quran 2:186).
ALLAH GIVES US GUIDANCE
Muslims believe in Allah as the ultimate source of guidance, and following his commands as the path to happiness and success both here on Earth and after death. According to Quran 17:9 “Verily, this Quran guides to what is most just and right, giving good news of great rewards for doing righteous deeds (such as charity).”
“Verily We have revealed the book to you in truth for instructing mankind. He that receives guidance benefits his own soul, but he that strays injures his own soul”. (39:41).
ALLAH SENT PROPHETS TO ALL NATIONS
Islam holds that Allah, or God, revealed himself through various prophets such as Adam, Noah, Abraham, Moses, Jesus and Muhammad (peace be upon all of them). According to Muslims, the Quran represents direct word from Allah revealed directly to Muhammad through revelation.
We surely sent a messenger to every community, saying, “Worship Allah and shun false gods.” But some of them were guided by Allah, while others were destined to stray. So travel throughout the land and see the fate of the deniers! Ayah an-Nahl (The Bee) 16:36.
Islam believes in one God as its creator and maintainer; their Quran gives several names and attributes for Allah that describe his nature and characteristics as loving, compassionate and merciful God. Muslims consider adhering to Allah’s commands to bring happiness in life as well as eternal rewards in heaven.
