Learn About Islam.
Islam, at its essence is about willfully submitting ones will to the Creator of the universe – the natural consequence of which is experiencing peace and serenity both inwardly and out.
Muslims (the Arabic word for those who submit themselves to the will of God) make an active choice of submitting themselves to the will of the Creator as opposed to submitting to anything which is created. Submitting oneself to the Creator alone, frees and liberates a person from chasing the mirages of life.
The concept of God in Islam is strictly monotheistic. There is only one God (Allah in Arabic) worthy of worship. Muslims know The Creator through the attributes that He has made known to us.
Some of His attributes include The One, The Eternal, The Everlasting, The Creator, The Sustainer, The Provider, The Almighty, The All Aware, The Guide, The Compassionate, The Most Merciful, The Loving, The All Forgiving, The Forgiver of sins and many more.
An important belief about God in Islam is that he is different to his creation and does not have human attributes. In chapter 112 of The Qur’an (the verbatim revelation of The Creator of the universe to all of humanity), Allah says:
“Say, He is Allah, (who is) One,
Allah, the Eternal Refuge.
He neither begets, nor is born,
Nor is there to Him any equivalent.”
