    • A Muslim Must Believe

      A Muslim must believe in Allah's Lordship, in His Oneness, and in His Attributes


      A Muslim believes in Allah's Divinity: that He is the Lord, the Creator, the Sovereign, and the Manager of all affairs.

      A Muslim believes in Allah's Lordship: that He is the True God and every other deity is false.

      A Muslim believes in Allah's Names and Attributes: that He has the Most Magnificent Names and the Sublime Perfect Attributes.

      A Muslim believes in Allah's Oneness: that He has no associate in His Divinity, His Lordship, His Names, or His Attributes. Allah (God) says in the Quran that He is:

      "Lord of the heavens and the earth, and all that is between them, so worship Him (Alone) and be constant and patient in His worship. Do you know of any who is similar to Him? (of course none is similar or co-equal to Him, and He has one as partner with Him). [There is nothing like unto Him and He is the All-Hearer, the All-Seer]." (Maryam 19:65)

      Muslims believe that Allah (God) is:

      "Allah! La ilaha illa Huwa (none has the right to be worshipped but He), the Ever Living, the One Who sustains and protects all that exists. Neither slumber, nor sleep overtake Him. To Him belongs whatever is in the heavens and whatever is on earth. Who is he that can intercede with Him except with His Permission? He knows what happens to them (His creatures) in this world, and what will happen to them in the Hereafter. And they will never compass anything of His Knowledge except that which He wills His Kursi (literally a footstool or chair, and sometimes wrongly translated as Throne) extends over the heavens and the earth, and He feels no fatigue in guarding and preserving them. And He is the Most High, the Most Great." (Al-Baqarah 2:255)

      Muslims believe that:

      "He is Allah, than Whom there is La ilaha illa Huwa (none has the right to be worshipped but He) the All-Knower of the unseen and the seen (open). He is the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful.

      He is Allah, than Whom there is La ilaha illa Huwa (none has the right to be worshipped but He) the King, the Holy, the One Free from all defects, the Giver of security, the Watcher over His creatures, the All-Almighty, the Compeller, the Supreme. Glory be to Allah! (High is He) above all that they associate as partners with Him.

      He is Allah, the Creator, the Inventor of all things, the Bestower of forms. To Him belong the Best Names. All that is in the heavens and the earth glorify Him. And He is the All-Mighty, the All-Wise." (Al-Hashr 59:22-24)

      Muslims believe that:

      "To Allah belongs the kingdom of the heavens and the earth. He creates what He wills. He bestows female (offspring) upon whom He wills, and bestows male (offspring) upon whom He wills.

      Or He bestows both males and females, and He renders barren whom He wills. Verily, He is the All-Knower and is Able to do all things." (Ash-Shura 42:49-50)

      Muslims believe that:

      "...There is nothing like unto Him, He is the All-Hearer, the All-Seer.

      To Him belongs the keys of the heavens and the earth, He enlarges provision for whom He wills, and straitens (it for whom He wills). Verily! He is the All-Knower of everything." (Ash-Shura 42:11-12)

      Muslims believe that:

      "... No (moving) living creature is there on earth but its provision is due from Allah. And He knows its dwelling place and its deposit (in the uterus, grave, etc.) all is in a Clear Book (Al-Laugh-Al-Mahfuz - the Book of Decrees with Allah)." (Hud 11:6)

      Muslims believe:

      "... With Him are the keys of the Ghaib (all that is hidden), none knows them but He. And He knows whatever there is in (or on) the earth and in the sea; not a leaf falls, but he knows it. There is not a grain in the darkness of the earth nor anything fresh or dry, but is written in a Clear Record." (Al-An'am 6:59)

      Muslims believe that:

      "Verily, Allah! With Him (Alone) is the knowledge of the Hour, He sends down the rain, and knows that which is in the wombs. No person knows that which is in the wombs. No person knows what he will earn tomorrow, and no person knows in what land he will die. Verily, Allah is All-Knower, All-Aware (of things)." (Luqman 31:34)

      Muslims believe that Allah speaks whatever He pleases whenever He pleases:

      "...And to Moses Allah spoke directly." (An-Nisa 4:164)

      "And when Moses came at the time and place appointed by Us, and his Lord spoke to him..." (Al-A'raf 7:143)

      "And We called to him from the right side of the Mount (Sinai), and made him draw near to Us for a talk with him (Moses)." (Maryam 19:52)

      A Muslim believes:

      "... If the sea were ink for (writing) the words of my Lord, surely, the sea would be exhausted before the words of my Lord would be finished even if We brought (another sea) like it for its aid." (Al-Kahf 18:109)

      "... If all the trees on the earth were pens, and the sea (were ink wherewith to write), with seven seas behind it to add to its (supply), yet the Words of Allah would not be exhausted. Verily, Allah is All-Mighty, All-Wise." (Luqman 31:27)

      Muslims believe that Allah's words are the most truthful in conveying information, the most just in ruling, and the fairest in conversation. Allah (God) said:

      "... The Word of your Lord has been fulfilled in truth and justice..." (Al-An'am 6:115)

      "...Allah's Promise is the Truth, and whose words can be truer than those of Allah? (of course, none)." (An-Nisa 4:122)

      Muslims believe that the Quran is Allah's words:

      "Say [O Muhammad (SAW)] Ruh-ul-Qudus [Gabriel (AS)] has brought it (the Quran) down from your Lord with truth..." (An-Nahl 16:102)

      "And truly, this (the Quran) is a revelation of the Lord of the 'Alamin (mankind, jinns and all that exists), Which the trustworthy Ruh [Gabriel (AS)] has brought down; Upon your heart [O Muhammad (SAW)] that you may be (one) of the warners, In the plain Arabic language." (Ash-Shu'ara 26:192-195)

      Muslims believe that Allah (God) is well above his creatures in His person and His Attributes. Allah (God) says:

      "... And He is the Most High, the Most Great." (Al-Baqarah 2:255)

      "... Above His slaves, and He is the All-Wise, Well-Aquainted with all things." (Al-An'am 6:18)

      Muslims believe:

      "Surely, your Lord is Allah Who created the heavens and the earth in six Days and then Istawa (rose over) the Throne (really in a manner that suits His Majesty), disposing the affair of all things." (At-Tauba 10:3)

      Allah (God) "Istawa (rose over) the Throne" really in a manner that suits His Majesty. Nobody except He knows what this manner is.

      Muslims believe that Allah (God) is with His creatures (in knowledge) while He is still on His Throne. Allah (God) knows their conditions, hears their sayings, sees their deeds and manages their affairs. Allah (God) provides for the poor and the broken. Allah (God) gives sovereignty to whom He pleases and takes away sovereignty from whom He pleases. Allah (God) glorifies whom He wills and He humiliates whom He wills.

      "... There is nothing like unto Him, and He is the All-Hearer, the All-Seer." (Ash-Shura 42:11)

      Muslims do not say that Allah (God) is living with His creatures on Earth. Muslims consider whoever says this to be a nonbeliever or straying away from the truth because by saying this one attributes to Allah (God) that which does not befit Him.

      Muslims believe the words of Allah's Messenger [Muhammad ibn Abdullah (SAW)] when he (SAW) said

      "Allah (God) descends to the near sky before the last third of every night and says: 'Who shall pray to Me and I will answer his prayers? Who shall ask Me and I will give him? Who shall ask my forgiveness and I will forgive him?'" (Bukhari & Muslim)

      Muslims believe that Allah (God) will come on the Day of Judgment to judge among His people because Allah (God) said,

      "Nay! When the earth is ground to powder, And your Lord comes with the angels in rows, And Hell will be brought near that Day. On that Day will man remember, but how will that remembrance (then) avail him?" (Al-Fajr 89:21-23)

      Muslims believe that Allah (God) is:

      "The Originator of the heavens and the earth. When He decrees a matter, He only says to it: 'Be!' - and it is." (Al-Baqarah 2:117)
