Islam is a religion that sees God behind every thing, He is the Creator who creates, sustains and guides every thing in the universe including all the creatures and creations. His Will and Mercy are seen in every thing in His Universe. His power is supreme, when He wants any thing to be done, it is done. He masters the running events and the future events. The name of the God in Islam is Allah. This may stand in Arabic for two words Al ( the ) Ilah ( God ), which when combined and canceling the letter I from the second word, became Allah ( the God ). This name is divine and have been called by all prophets since Adam until Mohammed. This name is close to the Hebrew name of the Creator “ Eloha” called by Moses, but the Jews has wrongly pronounced it in a plural form “ Elohim” which indicates existence of more than one god. The Islamic name of God “ Allah” is close to the Aromatic name of God used by Jesus “ Aloha”. So, Allah is the name of the God in the three monotheistic religions.

The unique usage of Allah as a propper name of God is a reflection of Islam’s emphasis on the purity of the belief in God which is the essence of the message of all God’s messengers. So, Islam considers associating any deity or personality with God as a deadly sin which God will never forgive, despite the fact that He may forgive any other sin.

So, Islam rejects characterizing God in any human form or depicting Him as favoring certain individuals or nations on the basis of wealth, power or race. He created the human beings as equals. They may distinguish themselves and get His favor through virtue and piety only.

God called Himself in the Koran, as inspired to His Prophet, with 99 attributes called “ the Highest attributes ”, or El- Asmaa El-Hosna. Each name is indicating a quality for Allah. The Koran mentions the evidence for God’s Properties in the universe or in ourselves. This is done through mental reasoning and proofs when thinking in the universe and deeply surveying the facts in our creation. The Holy Koran stems the conclusions that assures the existence of one true Holy God, who is the “Creator”, the “Merciful”, the “Compassionate”, the “Wise”, the “Supreme”, the “Almighty”, the “Beginner”, the “Repeater”, the “Owner”, the “Compeller”, the “Knower” of all seen and unseen, and to Him belongs every thing.

In this way, we believe that there are no partners nor colleagues to Allah. But only one God, who creates such homogenous and unique creation. All animals, plants and humans have the same structure of cells, performs the same living processes as breathing, eating, growing, all breath the same Oxygen and expired the same Carbon dioxide and water vapor. All animals have two eyes (some insects may have more ) , one nose, a mouth, a head, hands and legs, a digestive system, a circulatory blood system, a urinary system, a productive system, and other similar systems. The cell of all animals or plants are similar but the number of chromosomes in every cell initially defines the type of animal. The plants, animals, water, air and earth form one complete system in which each has its role of functioning. Who unifies this design and complete this closed system ( animal feeds on plants and benefit by the Oxygen that they emit ). why is it unique ? The scientific answer came from the Creator in His Last Holy Book sent to His Last Prophet Mohammed in the previous verses and many other verses of the Koran, It is created so to lead us to His Oneness, His superiority, and His Mercy.

When the prophet Mohammed was asked in the beginning of his mission by his contemporaries about Allah, the answer came from God Himself in the form of a short chapter ( or Surah) in Koran. This Surah, number 112, is considered as the essence of unity and reads:

In the name of God, the Merciful, the Compassionate

Say ( O Mohammed ) He is Allah, ( the ) One God, Allah is As-samad ( He is the God to whom rise the needs of all creatures but He is self-Sufficient ), He begets not nor He was begotten, And there is none coequal or comparable to Him. ( 112)

Islam rejects characterizing God in any human form or depicting Him as favoring certain individuals or nations on the basis of race or power. He created all the human beings as equals. A man can distinguish himself and get the favor of the God through virtue and piety only.

The creator must be different from these things He created because if He has the same nature, He will be temporal and will therefore need a maker. It follows that nothing is like Him as He stated in the Koran:

There is nothing like unto Him ( 42-11)

He is beyond our capability to view or to imagine:

No vision ( or imagination ) can grasp Him, but His Grasp is over all vision. He is the most Subtle and Cuteous, Well acquainted with all things. ( 6 - 103 )

The Creator is eternal and everlasting. Then His attributes must also be eternal and everlasting. He should not lose any of His attributes nor acquire new ones. If this is so, then His attributes should be absolute. Can there be more than one God who have such absolute attributes.? The Koran summarizes this argument and gives the proof:

God has not taken to Himself a son., nor a God- Companion with Him. For then, each god ( or Son) would have taken away what he had created, and some would have tried to overcome the others. ( 23 _91 )

Here we find a pure logic also to prove the impossibility of existence of more than one God offered from Allah.

God is the creator of everything. He is the Guardian over everything. Unto Him belongs the ownership of the heavens and the earth. Any creature is there on the earth has its provision in the Hands of Allah. He is Allah; there is no God but He. He is the All- Knower of the unseen and the seen. he is the most beneficent and most merciful. He is Allah than Whom there isn’t ( La Ilah Ella Huwa ; none has the right to be worshipped but He ) the King,, the Holy, the Peace, the Giver of security ( to His creation) The Watcher ( or Governing His Creatures ), the All-Mighty, the Compeller, the Supreme. Glory be to Allah ! ( High is He ) above all that they regard as gods with Him. He is Allah, the Creator, the Designer, the Bestower ( Who gives the creations its form and shapes ), to Him belongs the Best Names. All what exist in the heavens earth ( i.e. every thing ) glorify Him as the All-Mighty and Wise. ( 59 / 22 - 24 )

He is the First ( nothing is before Him ) and the Last ( nothing is after Him ), the Most High and Seen ( nothing is Higher than Him and He is seen in every thing ) , the Most Near or Involving ( Nothing is nearer than Him and He is involved in every thing ) and He is the All-Knower of every thing.( 57 - 3 )

The universe had been started since billions of years and it will be vanished. God started the creation of the universe. So, He will be able to restart it once more after its vanishing. In these meaning we can read many verses of the Koran. We write here these only:

Haven’t those who disbelieves seen that the heavens and the earth were a pile ( in the start of creation) and then We ( Allah ) fragmented them ( to form the heavens and the earth at the moment called by scientist as the great explosion )? and starting from water We ( Allah ) have created all the living creatures. ( 21 / 31 )

And ( remember ) the Day ( of resurrection ) when we shall roll up the heavens in one unit as rolling up the pages of a book, as We ( Allah ) begin the first creation ( from one pile ),We shall return it back ( as it was in the start ), Truly We ( Allah ) shall do that as My Promise. ( 21 / 105 )

In this Way, Allah shows us many scientific facts that we lately have found. science has seen the righteous of these statement, that initially all the heavens and the earth were in one pile. But the Koran expresses these facts in Divine words which can’t be written by human hands.

The start of creation of the man was from mud as all the creatures on the earth, which is proven scientifically. The elements form in the man’s body are the same as the earth’ s elements + water. However, the man is distinguished with an ability to learn and to know what His Creator planned to him to know. Such capabilities have authorized him to be responsible for the management of his life and the lives of his associates. The Creator calls him as His Deputy, or caliph, on the earth. With such honor, man deserves the freedom to choose between alternatives and to decide where to go. or what to do. But according to his choice, he may find his Divine decree. The distinguished man, by his abilities to recognize or identify the Glory of His Creator has certain duties on the earth besides eating, drinking and loving. Worshipping through obeying his creator and learning to emphasizes the wisdom of the creator are also required. Developing the norms of life and simplifying the lives of the others are required. However, here are some verses of the Koran which give these statements:

By ( as a swore ) the Sun and its sacrificing ( By emission of its mass in the form of radiation to lighten our earth ) , and by the moon as it follows the sun ( in time and in receiving its light ), and by the day ( the period of sun-light on the earth ) as it shows the its ( sun’s ) brightness, and by the night (darkness of the universe ) as it conceals it ( the sun ), and by the sky and He Who Constructed it, and by the earth and He Who is milling ( revolving ) it, and by the Nafs ( Personality and Soul or mentality of mankind ) and He Who settle its balance, and then He showed it ( this Nafs) the way of wickedness ( the obedience of bad desires ) and the way of taqua ( piety) .

Dear Ali Affifa,
Thank you for given this to me. I understand the story for that is in the bible too.
In the koran, Allah is the creator of mankind.
In the bible there are two lines. The Elohim line and the Jahwe line.
The Elohim are a hierarchie of angels . Angels are not God. God told them to create and they did the work.
After a time they changed that in: Jaweh, God, created the world.
And now, when we translate the bible, we are going to call everything God. If there stands Ahn Soph or The Jungster or the 'Old One of Ages' , they are translated as 'God'.That is not right for they are different enteties.
The creator in the bible said of Himself: I aim a jealous One. And to the Jews he said: 'You may only pray for me, than I give You all. That is a promise".But the Jews began to pray for gods they heard of from other folks.
For instance Baal, who was a god of fertility.
In India , hindus, they have a story about the creation of men. The creators, angels, had split Adam Kadmon in man and wife. That was a mistake of them. They got crying, what must we do? And than they went up to a higer Counsel. There they decided: Let it be for 7 to 7 eons (periods of time) and than we make it right.
That time has not come yet.
So we are created by angels and God told them so.
Now there was the hierarchie angels of Michael and one of Lucifer, who was a Seraphin of a very high rank.
As a seraphim he was very close to God.God is fire, the eternal flame.
The war between the angels, creators, was about the fire.Must mankind get a spark of fire in themselves to be able to understand the fire of God and be part of God, or must mankind do it without fire.?
With fire, mankind gets a free will, without fire they would be obediant, they would be like for instance a dog to his master.
Than there is the Greek story of Prometeus. He stole some fire from the sun. Zeus, the superial God was very angry. He was punished and bound on a mountain and a bird came every day to pick his lever out. But Prometeus could not die because he was immortal. So mankind got fire. Is that fire we can make when we light a candle or is it about the fire within us ?
So our fysical body is created from clay and that returns to clay.When we die.
And the spark of fire returns to the flame where it came from. Hindu call that the 'Day God with us' That is the day that all returns to God. Than there is a time of rest and the beginning of a new creation. Out of 'Nothing" there will be a so called 'Big Bang" and everything we are able to see is forming again on a new step of evolution.
But that time is not here yet. So we have to evolve and grow in conciesnes here on earth.

Now there is said that in our physical body from clay or dust, there is a soul and a spirit.
The spirit needs a body and that is our soul, and the soul needs a body and that is our physical body.
In that physical body we are able to act and live on earth.
Now what did the angels of fire do.? They offered themselves. They went in humanity. They are the fire in us, in our physical body.We are not our physical body, we even are not our soul, we are the spark of the flame, so we are the fallens angels. That is what we are and that is what made us a part of God and that is the part that cannot change and that is why we can urn eternal live. Makes us part of God.
So we really are the fallen angels and earth is hell. We are creatures of offering. And after we have been through this Hell we return to the Eternal flame where we came from and all is One again.
The fire is eternal and cann't die. And the dust cannot be destroyed eather. That will return to it finests proportions. That will be the building-stones, the spirit uses to create new forms. Dust by itself doesn't move.
The spitit has the power to give movement to the dust.

My english is not very good and I do not have this in english.

Maybe it doesn't contradict the Koran. God is the creator of everything . Maybe He is the architect and let the builders, the angels, do the work. And the angels can make mistakes. Angels evoluate too.
Maybe in older Korans , Allah himself did not touch the clay. God is Too high to do the lower work.

I tell you this for you said you surch the Truth, So do I. And there is much beyond my imagination. But this is the picture I have got yet.

God Is The Creator Of everything. He created the Chinese People, The Indians in America, The Hindus who's knoledge is very old.In Paradise mankind have lived for many years with God. The problem came when men were split in men and wives. Mankind sinned very bad. than the paradise live was over.

There are seven key's to the old books. The Jews have only four keys. They have lost the three spiritual keys.
India still have seven. Muslims have had a great civilisation. I think muslims have more keys than the Jews, maybe they have all seven too.
In the time of Columbus, when he discovered America, On the universeties in europe they learned that the world was flat. Egyptions knew the world was round. On the ships of Columbus were two muslim captains. They knew the world was round.
Religion is what is told to common people. You can not tel them everything for they can not understand it.
Jesus preached in parables. But to His disciples he explanded much more.
But some knolege has to stay hidden as long as mankind has developped Love and has become more mental.
In this time there is revealed some of the old teachings. But there must be much more.
We will get it when the time is there.

My verry best whishes. The ray of the sun is coulorless but all the coulors are within it.
I think that the coulorles ray is the truth wherein all religions, as coulors ,come together in harmony.
Religions are ways to live and they all will come together once
.
May God bless you: Thea
Comment by Ali Afifi on January 11, 2009 at 8:23pm
Dear friend Thea
I will write to u the story of Satan with God as remembered in the Quran and u will know every thing about the devil

No place or site or one inch is not under God's domain. God control everything but only he permitted to the Satan and his followers to stray the people as a test for them to know who will follow Satan and who will obey the God. God said in Quran;

(10) And surely, We created you (your father Adam) and then gave you shape (the noble shape of a human being); then We told the angels, "Prostrate yourselves to Adam", and they prostrated themselves, except Iblîs (Satan), he refused to be of those who prostrated themselves. (11) (Allâh) said: "What prevented you (O Iblîs) that you did not prostrate yourself, when I commanded you?" Iblîs said: "I am better than him (Adam), You created me from fire, and him You created from clay." (12) (Allâh) said: "(O Iblîs) get down from this (Paradise), it is not for you to be arrogant here. Get out, for you are of those humiliated and disgraced." (13) (Iblîs) said: "Allow me respite till the Day they are raised up (i.e. the Day of Resurrection)." (14) (Allâh) said: "You are of those respited." (15) (Iblîs) said: "Because You have sent me astray, surely I will sit in wait against them (human beings) on Your Straight Path (16) Then I will come to them from before them and behind them, from their right and from their left, and You will not find most of them as thankful ones (i.e. they will not be dutiful to You)." (17) (Allâh) said (to Iblîs) "Get out from this (Paradise) disgraced and expelled. Whoever of them (mankind) will follow you, then surely I will fill Hell with you all." (18) "And O Adam! Dwell you and your wife in Paradise, and eat thereof as you both wish, but approach not this tree otherwise you both will be of the Zâlimûn (unjust and wrong-doers)." (19) Then Shaitân (Satan) whispered suggestions to them both in order to uncover that which was hidden from them of their private parts (before); he said: "Your Lord did not forbid you this tree save that you should become angels or become of the immortals." (20) And he [Shaitân (Satan)] swore by Allâh to them both (saying): "Verily, I am one of the sincere well-wishers for you both." (21) So he misled them with deception. Then when they tasted of the tree, that which was hidden from them of their shame (private parts) became manifest to them and they began to cover themselves with the leaves of Paradise (in order to cover their shame). And their Lord called out to them (saying): "Did I not forbid you that tree and tell you: Verily, Shaitân (Satan) is an open enemy unto you?" (22) They said: "Our Lord! We have wronged ourselves. If You forgive us not, and bestow not upon us Your Mercy, we shall certainly be of the losers." (23) (Allâh) said: "Get down, one of you is an enemy to the other [i.e. Adam, Hawwa (Eve), and Shaitân (Satan),]. On earth will be a dwelling-place for you and an enjoyment, - for a time." (24) He said: "Therein you shall live, and therein you shall die, and from it you shall be brought out (i.e.resurrected)." (25) O Children of Adam! We have bestowed raiment upon you to cover yourselves (screen your private parts) and as an adornment, and the raiment of righteousness, that is better. Such are among the Ayât (proofs, evidences, verses, lessons, signs, revelations, etc.) of Allâh, that they may remember (i.e. leave falsehood and follow truth[]). (26) O Children of Adam! Let not Shaitân (Satan) deceive you, as he got your parents [Adam and Hawwa (Eve)] out of Paradise, stripping them of their raiments, to show them their private parts. Verily, he and Qabîluhu (his soldiers from the jinn or his tribe) see you from where you cannot see them. Verily, We made the Shayâtin (devils) Auliyâ' (protectors and helpers) for those who believe not. (27) And when they commit a Fâhishah (evil deed, killing, steal, witching and every kind of unlawful sexual intercourse), they say: "We found our fathers doing it, and Allâh has commanded it on us." Say: "Nay, Allâh never commands of Fâhishah. Do you say of Allâh what you know not? (28)( 7- Al-aaraf)

This is a good story from the Quran to clarify what Satan did and only the God permitted to him to do that to test the mankind but the Satan has no any authority over the mankind as God said in another site

(21) And Shaitân (Satan) will say when the matter has been decided: "Verily, Allâh promised you a promise of truth. And I too promised you, but I betrayed you. I had no authority over you except that I called you, so you responded to me. So blame me not, but blame yourselves. I cannot help you, nor can you help me. I deny your former act in associating me (Satan) as a partner with Allâh (by obeying me in the life of the world). Verily, there is a painful torment for the Zâlimûn (polytheists and wrong-doers)." (22)(14-Ibrahim)

(25) And indeed, We created man from dried (sounding) clay of altered mud. (26) And the jinn, We created aforetime from the smokeless flame of fire. (27) And (remember) when your Lord said to the angels: "I am going to create a man (Adam) from dried (sounding) clay of altered mud. (28) "So, when I have fashioned him completely and breathed into him (Adam) the soul which I created for him, then fall (you) down prostrating yourselves unto him." (29) So, the angels prostrated themselves, all of them together. (30) Except Iblîs (Satan), - he refused to be among the prostrators. (31) (Allâh) said: "O Iblîs (Satan)! What is your reason for not being among the prostrators?" (32) [Iblîs (Satan)] said: "I am not the one to prostrate myself to a human being, whom You created from dried (sounding) clay of altered mud." (33) (Allâh) said: "Then, get out from here, for verily, you are Rajîm (an outcast or a cursed one)." [Tafsîr At-Tabarî] (34) "And verily, the curse shall be upon you till the Day of Recompense (i.e. the Day of Resurrection)." (35) [Iblîs (Satan)] said: "O my Lord! Give me then respite till the Day they (the dead) will be resurrected." (36) Allâh said: "Then, verily, you are of those reprieved, (37) "Till the Day of the time appointed." (38) [Iblîs (Satan)] said: "O my Lord! Because you misled me, I shall indeed adorn the path of error for them (mankind) on the earth, and I shall mislead them all. (39) "Except Your chosen, (guided) slaves among them." (40) (Allâh) said: "This is the Way which will lead straight to Me." (41) "Certainly, you shall have no authority over My slaves, except those who follow you of the Ghâwun (Mushrikûn and those who go astray, criminals, polytheists, and evil-doers) (42) "And surely, Hell is the promised place for them all. (43) "It (Hell) has seven gates, for each of those gates is a (special) class (of sinners) assigned. (44) (15-Al-Hijr)


(70) (Remember) when your Lord said to the angels: "Truly, I am going to create man from clay" (71) So when I have fashioned him and breathed into him (his) soul created by Me, then you fall down prostrate to him." (72) So the angels prostrated themselves, all of them: (73) Except Iblîs (Satan) he was proud[] and was one of the disbelievers. (74) (Allâh) said: "O Iblîs (Satan)! What prevents you from prostrating yourself to one whom I have created with Both My Hands[]. Are you too proud (to fall prostrate to Adam) or are you one of the high exalted?" (75) [Iblîs (Satan)] said: "I am better than he, You created me from fire, and You created him from clay." (76) (Allâh) said: "Then get out from here, for verily, you are outcast. (77) "And verily!, My Curse is on you till the Day of Recompense." (78) [Iblîs (Satan)] said: "My Lord! Give me then respite till the Day the (dead) are resurrected." (79) (Allâh) said: "Verily! You are of those allowed respite (80) "Till the Day of the time appointed." (81) [Iblîs (Satan)] said: "By Your Might, then I will surely mislead them all, (82) "Except Your chosen slaves amongst them (faithful, obedient, true believers of Islâmic Monotheism)." (83) (Allâh) said: "The Truth is,— and the Truth I say, — (84) That I will fill Hell with you [Iblîs (Satan)] and those of them (mankind) that follow you, together." (85)(38-Sad)


(114) And indeed We made a covenant with Adam before, but he forgot, and We found on his part no firm will-power. (115) And (remember) when We said to the angels: "Prostrate yourselves to Adam." They prostrated themselves (all) except Iblîs (Satan), who refused. (116) Then We said: "O Adam! Verily, this is an enemy to you and to your wife. So let him not get you both out of Paradise, so that you will be distressed. (117) Verily, you have (a promise from Us) that you will never be hungry therein nor naked. (118) And you (will) suffer not from thirst therein nor from the sun's heat. (119) Then Shaitân (Satan) whispered to him, saying : "O Adam! Shall I lead you to the Tree of Eternity and to a kingdom that will never waste away?" (120) Then they both ate of the tree, and so their private parts became manifest to them, and they began to cover themselves with the leaves of Paradise for their covering. Thus did Adam disobey his Lord, so he went astray (121) Then his Lord chose him, and turned to him with forgiveness, and gave him guidance (122) He (Allâh) said:"Get you down (from the Paradise to the earth), both of you, together, some of you are an enemy to some others. Then if there comes to you guidance from Me, then whoever follows My Guidance he shall neither go astray, nor shall be distressed. (123) "But whosoever turns away from My Reminder (i.e. neither believes in this Qur'ân nor acts on its teachings) verily, for him is a life of hardship, and We shall raise him up blind on the Day of Resurrection." (124) He will say:"O my Lord! Why have you raised me up blind, while I had sight (before)." (125) (Allâh) will say: "Like this, Our Ayât (proofs, evidences, verses, lessons, signs, revelations, etc.) came unto you, but you disregarded them (i.e. you left them, did not think deeply in them, and you turned away from them), and so this Day, you will be neglected (in the Hell-fire, away from Allâh's Mercy)." (126)(20- Taha)

Dear friend if u like to send these verses in German language, I can do for u.
Comment by Thea on January 11, 2009 at 7:45pm
Hi Ali Afifi

You have said it perfectly. I am a bit silence. I can not find my words easily in english. What I read I had read in Dutch. In the esotheric teachings is standing thee same. Everything that is changeble can not be God.
When all what we now can see is gone, God still is there and there will be a new creation again.
Christianety has only the Bible from the Jews, but they have not got the explanations.
Moslims were the ennemies for a long time and we laughed at the hindu books about there gods with many arms.
When a king became a christian, the whole population had to become it.
We had a father-God Tyr, and his son was the Hanged Tyr and that was Odil. So we had only to chang the name. Jesus was hanged and the son of the Father. Jesus or Odil , was the same. That old celtic religion is very much alik the hindu religion, but al those old books are lost.
The last 30 jears , their are in the west, more and more books published with teachings of boeddha and Krishna and hundu teachings.In 1975 Blavatsky began to give esoterc teachings in her Secret Doctrine. Just a little bit she gave.
She used very old scribs from the east. And what she was telling us is the same that I now read is standing in the Quoran.
After her A.Bailey gave some inspired books by a Master. But it was not the intention that that was published for the intention was that there was no authorety , so you have to believe it. The truth has to speek for itselve. My douther asked in a bookshop for a bible. They did not have one but they had a Koran. The woman in the shop was ashamed because now we could think she likes the moslims. So it is in Holland.
But that doesn't matter. The moslims have a good, right Book.

Still I like somthing to say. God stands above the dualistic system wherein He placed us. Their is good and bad in the creation. Two sides of a medal. For instance: Temperture. Warm and cold. We have to mix those to get the right temperature. That is for our conciesness.
Real bad is : To get back in evolution and separation from the whole, from the oneness.
To act in behave of yourself in stead of the benefit of the world, of the whole.

I do not believe in the devil. I thought christianety made that up. For in the bible, the book of Job, The devil went to God and asked Him if he was alowed to test Job. God ageed with it. So, sometimes we are tested.
But when you have understood everything well, that is no problem. If you fail, than you have to do it over, just like at scool.
In the celtic religion it was the God Loki who did the tests. But He also made men laugh if they were too serious.

What the Koran say about the devil?

Many greetings and may God bless you.

In Dutch we use the word allah. For instance when we like to say: Come on, do it. Than we say Allah, come on, try it. In Belgium it is used even more. As: Allah little man.

Nice speaking to you.: Thea
