1. Unity of God

The Islamic creed is that there is no God except Allah and Muhammad is his Prophet. (la ilaaha illa-Allah Muhammadur- rasoolillah).

Muslims believe that Allah is one. He was neither begotten nor does He beget. He has no Partner. He is the Beginning and He is the End. He is omniscient and omnipresent.

The Qur’an says that He is closer to man than his jugular vein yet He cannot be encompassed by human intellect.

See the following verses of the Qur’an:

وَلِلَّهِ الْمَشْرِقُ وَالْمَغْرِبُ ۚ فَأَیْنَمَا تُوَلُّوا فَثَمَّ وَجْهُ اللَّهِ ۚ إِنَّ اللَّهَ وَاسِعٌ عَلِیمٌ

And Allah's is the East and the West, therefore, whither you turn, thither is Allah's purpose; surely Allah is Amplegiving, Knowing. (2:115)

وَإِلَٰهُکُمْ إِلَٰهٌ وَاحِدٌ ۖ لَا إِلَٰهَ إِلَّا هُوَ الرَّحْمَٰنُ الرَّحِیمُ

And your Allah is one Allah! There is no god but He; He is the Beneficent, the Merciful.(2:163)

اللَّهُ لَا إِلَٰهَ إِلَّا هُوَ الْحَیُّ الْقَیُّومُ ۚ لَا تَأْخُذُهُ سِنَهٌ وَلَا نَوْمٌ ۚ لَهُ مَا فِی السَّمَاوَاتِ وَمَا فِی الْأَرْضِ ۗ مَنْ ذَا الَّذِی یَشْفَعُ عِنْدَهُ إِلَّا بِإِذْنِهِ ۚ یَعْلَمُ مَا بَیْنَ أَیْدِیهِمْ وَمَا خَلْفَهُمْ ۖ وَلَا یُحِیطُونَ بِشَیْءٍ مِنْ عِلْمِهِ إِلَّا بِمَا شَاءَ ۚ وَسِعَ کُرْسِیُّهُ السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالْأَرْضَ ۖ وَلَا یَئُودُهُ حِفْظُهُمَا ۚ وَهُوَ الْعَلِیُّ الْعَظِیمُ 

Allah is He besides Whom there is no god, the Everliving, the Self-subsisting by Whom all subsist; slumber does not overtake Him nor sleep; whatever is in the heavens and
