Oneness of God
Oneness of God is the Basic of Islam.The concept of God in Islam has monotheistic basis. It says, there is only and only one God who has all the power, The One God is the Creator, He is the Sustainer and there in none worthy of Worship than Him. Islam rejects associating partners with the God like depicting Him like humans or considering that humans can help us like God. All the concepts like God can incarnate in any idol or human being are completely rejected by Islam. Considering human being as partners in matters and decisions of Allah is blasphemous in Islam.
In Islam, God has 99 names authenticated from different valid sources but most frequently used name for God is ‘Allah’. When someone has to enter in Islam, he/she says the Kalimah which has the wording of negation for all gods except ‘Allah’ i.e. ‘LaaIlahaIllal’lah’.
The most fundamental features of Islam is to abstain from shirk/partnership with Allah and believe in only One God and to worship Him alone. The basic Islamic belief is that God can forgive all other sins except Shirk. God alone is worthy of worship and He has no father, mother or children. He is the Supreme, The One.
The universe also gives witness of the oneness of Allah through many signs in it:
“Surely, His is the creation and commandment. Blessed is Allaah, the Lord of the ‘Aalameen (mankind, jinn and all that exists)!” [al-A’raaf 7:54 ]
Everything that happens in this universe, is by the decree of Allah. He I sthe Guardian over everything. As comes in Surah Al-Zumr:
“Allah is the Creator of all things, and He is the Wakeel (Trustee, Disposer of affairs, Guardian) over all things.” [ 39:62]
And in Surah Al-Hashr comes:
“He is Allaah, the Creator, the Inventor of all things, theBestower of forms. To Him belong the Best Names.” [ 59:24]
All the creations in this universe speak up for their One Creator because of their symphony, perfection and excellence. Such flawlessness can’t be achieved by any human being: In Surah Al-Toor, Allah says: “Were they created by nothing? Or were they themselves the creators? Or did they create the heavens and the earth? Nay, but they have no firm Belief.” [al-Toor 52:35-36]
The ayah in Surah Ibrahim ‘”Their Messengers said: What! Can there be a doubt about Allaah, the Creator of the heavens and the earth?”[14:10]’ indicates that believing in Allah is in the Fitrah/instinct of human beings and it is a matter of common sense. It comes in a Hadith Qudsi that “I created all My slaves as haneefs (monotheists), but the shayaateen (devils) came to them and made them deviate from their religion, and they forbade them that which I had permitted to them.” (Narrated by Muslim, no. 2865)
To believe in oneness of Allah, one ought to have open and reasonable heart. In Surah Al-Hajj, Allah(s.w.t) says:
“Verily, it is not the eyes that grow blind, but it is the hearts which are in the breasts that grow blind.” [22:46]
