Faith in Almighty Allah

Faith in Almighty Allah

To be a Muslim, One has to express his or her firm faith in Tawheed (The Oneness of Allah), Most high, and the Prophethood of Prophet Muhammad (SAW). Allah, Most High, is one. There is no partner in his divinity, His works, in his commandments and in His names. Allah is 'Waajib-ul-Wujood' which means that his existence is necessary at all times. He is Eternal (al-qadeem) and everlasting (al-Baaqi). None but Allah, Most High, is worthy of limitless praise and adoration. He is dependent on no other. On the Contrary, everything in the universe is dependent on him.

The Knowledge of Almighty Allah's Being is beyond all imagination and comprehension. It is indeed impossible to comprehend his supreme being by using any amount of wisdom, presentation, intellect or intuition because He is beyond imagination, unbound by any limit. It is only possible to imagine something when it has a definite and circumscribed shape or form. But since Allah, Most High, is formless, unbound and unrestricted, any attempt to visualize Him is impossible. However one can come to know of the existence of Allah the Most High, through human reason and contemplation of His Creations.

Allah, Most High, is neither a father nor a son of anyone; nor has he any spouse. Those who consider him as a father or a son are disbelievers.

Allah, The most high, all perfections are gathered in him. He is pure of all that is impure, defective, cruel, impertinent and indecent. The presence of any drawback and shortcomings in his being is totally impossible.
Telling a lie, deceiving, misappropriation, savagery, ignorance, gracelessness and many other detestable things like these, are absolutely impossible as far as Allah, Most high, is concerned. Allah, Most Exalted, is free from all confines of time and space, places and directions, forms and shapes and all those things that
resemble any creation.

It is only the beloved prophet Muhammad(PUBH) who saw Allah with his physical eyes on Mi'raaj.
As far as other prophets are concerned, they saw Allah, Most High, Only in meditations and dreams. It is reported that Imam Abu Hanifa, The great Jurist Imam, had the divine vision of Allah, Most Exalted, more than a hundred times in his dreams.

Allah, Most High, is the Absolute sovereign: free to do whatever, Whenever and however he Wills. No one can have any control over him. Nor can anyone distract him from his intentions. 

Allah Most high, Neither dozes nor sleeps. He watches over all the worlds. He is never tired, nor is he ever bored. None other than almighty Allah is the preserver of the universe. He is more tolerant, benevolent and loving than parents.

His mercy and benevolence provides comfort to broken hearts. All the glories and greatnesses are for Allah.
