اَلْحَمْدُللهِ الَّذِى هَدَنَا لِهَذَا وَمَاكُنَّا لِنَهْتَدِى لَوْ لاَ أَنْ هَدَنَاالله ُ. وَالصَّلاَةُ وَالسَّلاَمُ عَلٰى سَيْدِ اْلمُرّسَلِيْنَ. اَلذِّى بَعَثَ الله ُ رَحْمَةً لِّلْعَالَمِيْنَ وَعَلٰى اٰلِهِ وَصَحْبِهِ أَجْمَعِيْنَ أَمَّابَعْدُ.
All praises be to Allah, The Lord of the entire universe for it is He who has created us and those before us and has raised among mankind His prophets and messengers with guidance and the religion of truth for the salvation of mankind in this world and the next world.
Peace and blessing be upon the messenger of Allah, the seal of all the prophets and messengers of Allah who had been sent as a blessing and mercy for the entire worlds and also upon his blessed household and holy companions.
Thanks to Allah, The Almighty, for giving me this precious moment to deliver this important message concerning the concept of unity. May Allah, The Exalted guides us so that we are able to see the light of truth.
What I am going to deliver in my series of messages are not intended to ridicule or disgrace other religions especially that of Christianity and Judaism but for the sake of Allah, The Almighty and for the love of mankind.
O Brothers and Sisters !
When I observe the whole world I’ve found the whole world is engulfed by darkness, darkness of human lust, passion and desire, darkness of polytheism and disbelief and darkness of ignorance of Allah, The Almighty the Lord of all creations. All these have caused wars, fightings, killings, oppression, injustice, racial and religious discrimination and segregation and sometimes ethnic extermination among mankind causing destructions on land and sea without mercy and lawful cause.
These in turn have caused all forms of catastrophe, natural disaster and strange disease to happen. If this present situation is not solved once and for all then this world will be heading towards the threshold of Doomsday.
Why all these things happen to us mankind? The answer is, we human beings have turned over back from the Divine Laws and Regulations and majority of the people who live on this beautiful planet have been mislead by Iblis, the condemned Devil and as such they have strayed from the straight path, the path that had been trodden by all the prophets and messengers of Allah, The Almighty, the path that leads to Him, the path of salvation for mankind in this world and the Next world.
When I see all these things happening to mankind, I could not just sit down and let these things happen to mankind till Doomsday. This is because we are all brothers and sisters of the same descendents and as such I feel it is my duty to remind people of all nations of the truth from Allah, The Almighty, our Lord because this is the only way that leads to salvation not only for mankind but also for this world.
Since, as I see it, no one has really disclose the truth from Allah SWT our Lord to the whole world, I feel it is time for me to spread the message of salvation from Allah, The Almighty, to people of all nations and hopefully everyone could see the light of truth.
So I what I am going to disclose to the whole world from now on wards is nothing but the words of Allah, The Almighty, the words of salvation.
O Brothers and Sisters !
It is time now before Doomsday that people of all nations must know the truth, the truth that has been misunderstood by majority of people of all nations, the truth, who is really Allah, The Almighty, The Lord of all creations including us human beings based on the concept of unity.
There are many questions which we all human beings must answer them correctly. As for example:
1. Does God really exist?
2. Are there many Gods or there is only One God worthy of worship?
3. Do we pray to many different gods or to the same One God?
4. Do we all worship God, The Almighty in the way He wants it to be?
5. Are there many religions of Allah SWT or there is only one?
6. Do we all believe in all His Prophets and Messengers and in His Books of Revelations?
7. Have we ever checked that the religion we have embraced is really the religion of Allah SWT or is a man made religion?
8. Is Allah’s religion binding upon all people as servants of Allah, The Almighty.
I shall touch all these questions and many more in my series of messages to the whole world.
Brothers and Sisters !
In this first series of my message to the whole world I shall touch on the concept of God based on the concept of unity or monotheism.
We all know that this entire universe and everything in it can not exist by themselves or can create themselves. There must be a Super Being who has created them. A house can not exist by itself or can create itself. It needs someone to build it.
Thus there must a Super Being who must have created this entire worlds. But it is beyond human comprehension to know who is this Super Being. So Allah, The Almighty in His fathomless Mercy has raised among mankind His Prophets and Messengers with the prime task of proclaiming and making known to mankind who is this Super Being who is the real creator of all things including human being. So it through the prophets and messengers of Allah SWT that we all know now for certainty that this Super Being is called God, The God, The Almighty or in any name you may call Him but it is better to call Him Allah SWT.
The prophets and messengers of Allah SWT through the concept of unity had made known to mankind who is God worthy of worship. For example :
1. Prophet Noah AS. Chapter Al-Araf verse 59 :
لَقَدْ أَرْسَلْنَا نُوحًا إِلَىٰ قَوْمِهِ فَقَالَ يَا قَوْمِ اعْبُدُوا اللَّهَ مَا لَكُم مِّنْ إِلَـٰهٍ غَيْرُهُ إِنِّي أَخَافُ عَلَيْكُمْ عَذَابَ يَوْمٍ عَظِيمٍ ﴿٥٩﴾
“Indeed, We sent Noah to his people and he said: "O my people! Worship Allah! You have no other God but Him. Certainly, I fear for you the torment of a dreadful Day!"
2. Prophet Hud AS Chapter Al-Araf verse 65 :
وَإِلَىٰ عَادٍ أَخَاهُمْ هُودًا ۗ قَالَ يَا قَوْمِ اعْبُدُوا اللَّهَ مَا لَكُم مِّنْ إِلَـٰهٍ غَيْرُهُ ۚ أَفَلَا تَتَّقُونَ ﴿٦٥﴾
And to 'Ad people, We sent their brother Hud. He said: "O my people! Worship Allah! You have no other God but Him. Will you not fear (Allah)?"
3 . Prophet Shaleh AS. Chapter 11 Hud Verse 61 :
وَإِلَىٰ ثَمُودَ أَخَاهُمْ صَالِحًا ۚ قَالَ يَا قَوْمِ اعْبُدُوا اللَّهَ مَا لَكُم مِّنْ إِلَـٰهٍ غَيْرُهُ ۖ
And to Thamud (people We sent) their brother Salih. He said: O my people! worship Allah, you have no other God but Him”.
4. Prophet Abraham AS. Chapter Al-Ankabut verse 16 :
وَإِبْرَاهِيمَ إِذْ قَالَ لِقَوْمِهِ اعْبُدُوا اللَّهَ وَاتَّقُوهُ ۖ ذَٰلِكُمْ خَيْرٌ لَّكُمْ إِن كُنتُمْ تَعْلَمُونَ ﴿١٦﴾
And (remember) Abraham when he said to his people: "Worship Allah (Alone), and fear Him: that is better for you if you know and understand.
5. Prophet Syaib AS. Chapter 11 Hud Verse 84 :
وَإِلَىٰ مَدْيَنَ أَخَاهُمْ شُعَيْبًا ۚ قَالَ يَا قَوْمِ اعْبُدُوا اللَّهَ مَا لَكُم مِّنْ إِلَـٰهٍ غَيْرُهُ
And to the Midian( people We sent) their brother Shu'aib. He said: "O my people! Worship Allah, you have no other God but Him.
6. Prophet Moses AS. Chapter Yunus Verse 84 :
وَقَالَ مُوسَىٰ يَا قَوْمِ إِن كُنتُمْ آمَنتُم بِاللَّهِ فَعَلَيْهِ تَوَكَّلُوا إِن كُنتُم مُّسْلِمِينَ ﴿٨٤﴾
And Moses said: "O my people! If you do really believe in Allah, then put your trust in Him if you are Muslims (those who submit to Allah's Will)."
7. Prophet Jesus AS Chapter Al-Maidah verse 72 :
لَقَدْ كَفَرَ الَّذِينَ قَالُوا إِنَّ اللَّهَ هُوَ الْمَسِيحُ ابْنُ مَرْيَمَ ۖ وَقَالَ الْمَسِيحُ يَا بَنِي إِسْرَائِيلَ اعْبُدُوا اللَّهَ رَبِّي وَرَبَّكُمْ ۖ إِنَّهُ مَن يُشْرِكْ بِاللَّهِ فَقَدْ حَرَّمَ اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ الْجَنَّةَ وَمَأْوَاهُ النَّارُ ۖ وَمَا لِلظَّالِمِينَ مِنْ أَنصَارٍ ﴿٧٢﴾
Surely, they have disbelieved who say: "Allah is the Messiah son of Mary." But the Messiah said: "O Children of Israel! Worship Allah, my Lord and your Lord." Verily, whosoever sets up partners (in worship) with Allah, then Allah has forbidden Paradise to him, and the Fire will be his abode . And for the Zalimun (polytheists and wrong-doers) there are no helpers.
This concept of unity is nicely summed up in The last testament ie the Holy Quran in Chapter Al-Ikhlas which reads as follows :
قُلْ هُوَ اللَّهُ أَحَدٌ اللَّهُ الصَّمَدُ لَمْ يَلِدْ وَلَمْ يُولَدْ وَلَمْ يَكُن لَّهُ كُفُوًا أَحَدٌ
“ Say ( O Muhammad ) : ‘ He is Allah , the One. Allah, the eternally besought of all. He begets not nor was He begotten. And there is none co-equal or comparable unto Him”.
When we say that ‘ He is Allah, The One,’ it means that Allah The Almighty is one in His essence, attributes and His actions. When we say That Allah is unique and one in His essence it means there is no essence like or similar to His essence. There is nothing comparable to His Essence. His Essence is not composed of 4 elements ( water, air, fire and earth), His Essence is without form and shape and is not subjected to time, place and distance and the Essence of Allah is ‘Qadim” i.e no beginning and ‘Baqa’ i.e without end, He exists forever. He is immortal.
When we say that Allah is unique in His Attributes it means there is no attributes like or similar to His attributes. This is because He is Omnipotent i.e All-powerful, Omnescient i.e All-knowing, He is All-aware and Oft-forgiving. And when we say that Allah is unique and one in His actions it means there is no action like or similar to His actions. This is because His Actions give effect while human actions do not give effect at all. He has power over everything while we human beings have no power at all in reality.
‘ Allah, The Eternally besought of all ’ means that this entire universe and everything in it including human beings stand in need of Him. We all depend on Allah SWT for our very existence and for everything we need. No one is independent of Allah SWT. Allah SWT doesn’t need anything from us.
For Allah said in chapter Al-Ankaboot verse 6 :
إِنَّ اللَّهَ لَغَنِيٌّ عَنِ الْعَالَمِينَ
“ Indeed Allah is free of all needs from all creation.”
‘He begets not’ means He has no son for He has no wife.
Allah SWT has no son for He has no wife and it is not befitting for Allah SWT to take upon Himself a son as Allah SWT made it clear in the Holy Quran in chapter Al-Anam verse 101 :
بَدِيعُ السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالْأَرْضِ ۖ أَنَّىٰ يَكُونُ لَهُ وَلَدٌ وَلَمْ تَكُن لَّهُ صَاحِبَةٌ ۖ وَخَلَقَ كُلَّ شَيْءٍ ۖ وَهُوَ بِكُلِّ شَيْءٍ عَلِيمٌ ﴿١٠١﴾
He is the Originator of the heavens and the earth. How can He have a son when He has no wife? He created all things and He had full knowledge of all things.
Chapter Yunus verse 68 :
قَالُوا اتَّخَذَ اللَّهُ وَلَدًا ۗ سُبْحَانَهُ ۖ هُوَ الْغَنِيُّ ۖ لَهُ مَا فِي السَّمَاوَاتِ وَمَا فِي اْلأَرْضِ ۚ إِنْ عِندَكُم مِّن سُلْطَانٍ بِهَـٰذَا ۚ أَتَقُولُونَ عَلَى اللَّهِ مَا لاَ تَعْلَمُونَ
They say: “ Allah has taken a son (to Himself)! Glory be to Him: He is the Self-sufficient: To Him belong all what is in the heavens and in earth; you have no authority for this; do you say against Allah what you do not know?
‘Nor was begotten’ means He was not been born for He has no parents.
‘And there is none comparable unto Him’ means that in short God is beyond comparison because He is unique and one in His essence, attributes and actions. We can not make an image of Allah in form of statues or idols and worship them because nothing is comparable unto Him and it is forbidden by Allah SWT.
Prophet Abraham AS had forbidden his people to pray to the idols or statues as narrated in the Holy Quran chapter Al-Anbia verses 51 – 56 and verses 66 – 67.
Chapter Al-Anbia verses 51 – 56 :
وَلَقَدْ آتَيْنَا إِبْرَاهِيمَ رُشْدَهُ مِن قَبْلُ وَكُنَّا بِهِ عَالِمِينَ ﴿٥١﴾ إِذْ قَالَ لِأَبِيهِ وَقَوْمِهِ مَا هَـٰذِهِ التَّمَاثِيلُ الَّتِي أَنتُمْ لَهَا عَاكِفُونَ ﴿٥٢﴾ قَالُوا وَجَدْنَا آبَاءَنَا لَهَا عَابِدِينَ ﴿٥٣﴾ قَالَ لَقَدْ كُنتُمْ أَنتُمْ وَآبَاؤُكُمْ فِي ضَلَالٍ مُّبِينٍ ﴿٥٤﴾ قَالُوا أَجِئْتَنَا بِالْحَقِّ أَمْ أَنتَ مِنَ اللَّاعِبِينَ ﴿٥٥﴾ قَالَ بَل رَّبُّكُمْ رَبُّ السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالْأَرْضِ الَّذِي فَطَرَهُنَّ وَأَنَا عَلَىٰ ذَٰلِكُم مِّنَ الشَّاهِدِينَ ﴿٥٦﴾
And indeed We bestowed aforetime on Abraham his guidance, and We knew him fully well. When he said to his father and his people: "What are these statues, to which you are devoted?" They said: "We found our fathers worshipping them." He said: "Indeed, you and your fathers have been in manifest error." They said: "Have you brought us the truth, or are you one of those who play about?" He said: "Nay, your Lord is the Lord of the heavens and the earth, Who created them and I am of those who bear witness to this:
Chapter Al-Anbia verses 66 – 67 :
قَالَ أَفَتَعْبُدُونَ مِن دُونِ اللَّهِ مَا لَا يَنفَعُكُمْ شَيْئًا وَلَا يَضُرُّكُمْ ﴿٦٦﴾ أُفٍّ لَّكُمْ وَلِمَا تَعْبُدُونَ مِن دُونِ اللَّهِ ۖ أَفَلَا تَعْقِلُونَ ﴿٦٧﴾
(Abraham) said, "Do you then worship, besides Allah, things that can neither be of any good to you nor do you harm?" Fie upon you, and upon the things that you worship besides Allah. Have you no sense?".
It is not proper for us to say that Allah SWT manifest Himself in human beings or in the form of human beings, animals or things and call him or it god for Allah SWT is beyond such association and this is an act of polytheism and this will cause someone to be condemned in Hellfire forever.
As Allah said in Chapter At-Tur verse 43 : أَمْ لَهُمْ إِلَـٰهٌ غَيْرُ اللَّهِ ۚ سُبْحَانَ اللَّهِ عَمَّا يُشْرِكُونَ
“ Or have they god other than Allah? Glory be to Allah from what they associate with Him.”
In short Allah SWT is above all what a human being ascribe to Him for He is far from all such associations and attributions.
This is the concept of unity that is preached and conveyed by all the prophets and messengers of Allah SWT including Jesus son of Mary .
O Brothers and Sisters !
Our belief in Allah SWT must be based on the concept of unity i.e we must believe that Allah SWT is the only God that is worthy of worship and that He is One and unique in His Essence, Attributes nd Actions and that non is coequal or comparable unto Him. To believe in Allah SWT also includes to believe in His Angels, His Books of Revelations, His Prophets and Messengers and in predestination. To disbelieve in one of them is to disbelieve in Allah, The Almighty.
O Brothers and Sisters !
1. It is very clear to us now that there is only one God Worthy of worship i.e Allah, The Almighty. He is the only One who had created human beings and all things. Chapter al- Furqan verse 2:
وَخَلَقَ كُلَّ شَىْءٍ فَقَدَّرَهُ تَقْدِيرًا
“ And indeed It is He Who created all things, and ordained them in due proportions ”.
2. He does not only create human beings but also gives life and causes death. Chapter An-Najm Verse 44 :
وَأَنَّهُ هُوَ أَمَاتَ وَأَحْيَا
“And indeed it is He (Allah S.W.T.)Who causes death and gives life.”
3. He will raise up human beings from their graves on the Last day, The Day of Resurrection. Chapter Al-Hajj Verse 7 :
وَأَنَّ السَّاعَةَ آتِيَةٌ لاَّ رَيْبَ فِيهَا وَأَنَّ اللَّهَ يَبْعَثُ مَن فِي الْقُبُورِ
“And surely, the Hour is coming, there is no doubt about it; and certainly Allah will resurrect (raise up) those who are in the graves.” 4. Then all people will be assembled before Him to be judged in the Day of Judgment. Chapter Al-Jumu’ah Verse 8 :
قُلْ إِنَّ الْمَوْتَ الَّذِي تَفِرُّونَ مِنْهُ فَإِنَّهُ مُلَاقِيكُمْ ثُمَّ تُرَدُّونَ إِلَىٰ عَالِمِ الْغَيْبِ وَالشَّهَادَةِ فَيُنَبِّئُكُم بِمَا كُنتُمْ تَعْمَلُونَ
“Say (to them) : “Verily, the death from which you flee will surely meet you then you will be sent back to (Allah), the All-Knower of the unseen and the seen and He will tell you what you used to do.”
5. Finally some people will go to Paradise and some will go to Hell. Chapter Asy-Syuuraa Verse 7:
فَرِيقٌ فِي الْجَنَّةِ وَفَرِيقٌ فِي السَّعِيرِ
“a party will be in Paradise and a party in the blazing fire (Hell).”
O Brothers and Sisters !
It is time now that we must all check and make sure that we are all praying to the one and only true God i.e Allah, The Almighty for He is the only who had created the entire universe and everything in it including us human beings and He had raised among mankind His Prophets and Messengers with guidance and the religion of truth for the salvation of mankind in this world and in the Next world.
If you are praying to Allah SWT but at the same time you are associating Him with others as I have just explained then you are a polytheist and a polytheist is doomed to Hell forever as Allah SWT ordained in chapter An-Nisa verse 48 :
إِنَّ اللَّهَ لاَ يَغْفِرُ أَن يُشْرَكَ بِهِ وَيَغْفِرُ مَا دُونَ ذَلِكَ لِمَن يَشَاۤءُ وَمَن يُشْرِكْ بِاللَّهِ فَقَدِ افْتَرَى إِثْمًا عَظِيمًا
“Allah will not forgive those who serve other gods besides Him; but He will forgive whom He will for other sins. He that serves other gods besides Him is guilty of a grevious sin.”
We must make sure that we are praying according to the ways which Allah SWT had prescribed through His Prophets and Messengers not according to our own ways. We must also make sure that the religion we embrace is the religion of all the prophets and messengers of Allah SWT which is Islam.
If you have embraced Islam make sure that you practise all the laws and regulations contained in it in all aspect of life.
To find out whether you are really worshipping Allah SWT, the true God, or want to find out the true religion acceptable by Allah SWT please do not hesitate to read the Holy Quran because the Holy Quran has been revealed as guidance for mankind.
Let us all now return to Allah, The Almighty in repentance and in obedience so that we are all safe from the dangers of this world and the Next world. This is what Allah SWT wants us to do as stated in chapter Az-Zumar verse 54 :
وَأَنِيبُوا إِلَى رَبِّكُمْ وَأَسْلِمُوا لَهُ مِن قَبْلِ أَن يَأْتِيَكُمُ الْعَذَابُ ثُمَّ لاَ تُنصَرُونَ
“And return in repentance and in obedience with true Faith to your Lord and submit to Him before the torment comes upon you, (and) then you will not be helped.”
Let us all pray to Allah SWT to our Lord for salvation in this world and next world.
O Allah, our Lord, the Lord of all creations ! Please forgive our sins and our wrongs. We pray that You always guides so that we are all safe from all dangers in this world and the Next.
O Allah, our Lord ! We seek Your guidance and assistance so that we are able to perform good deeds which You pleases.
O Allah, our Lord ! To those who are sick please grant them good health, to those who are in distress and in need please grant them aid and provision, to those who are in difficulties please relieve them from their burden and hardship.
O Allah, our Lord ! To those who have not embraced Your religion please give them guidance so that they will embrace Your religion. And for those have gone astray please lead them back to the right path that You pleases.
O Allah, Our Lord ! Please grant us peace and happiness in this world and in the next world.
Hopefully the whole of mankind will be safe in this world and in the Next World.
