The meaning, significance and attributes of Allah.

Islam is a monotiest religion ie., it believes in only one God. God has no partners. All muslims prostrate and pray to only one God.

"Verily, God He (alone) is the Bestower of sustenance, the Lord of unbreakable strength." (Quran: LI, 58). According to Arabic rhetoric in indicates that God is the only provider.

Allah is the Creator, Provider, Sustainer and Cherisher of this world. Everything that exists in this universe belongs to HIM. All power, strength, glory & honor exclusively belongs to Allah. "Unto God belongeth all power.." (Quran: II, 165) He has absolute control over every living and non-living unit that exists in this universe. Every atom stays in its place and moves from its place only by HIS command. HE has abolute control over Life & Death. Everything that exist between the heavens and earth belongs to Him. HE is the supreme and ultimate authority over every existing particle of this world.

HE introduces Himselves in His Own Words:
(112:1) Say: He is Allah, the One and Only;
(112:2) Allah, the Eternal, Absolute;
(112:3) He begets not, nor is He begotten.
(112:4) And there is none comparable unto Him.

HE is neither born to anyone nor HE has any children of HIS OWN.
