Concept of god In Islam
Muslims have faith in only Allah who is One, Omniscient and Omnipotent. He is neither begotten nor does He beget.chand Muslims believe that only God truly exists. Man and the entire creation exist only because God wills them to exist. God alone is the sole creator of everything that exists, and manifests His glory, power and attributes. Man has been created as a creature with free will so that by his surrender of free will to the divine will he may become worthy of God`s fellowship. This faith in God is realized by responding to the message of Allah through His prophet Muhammad.

Muslims have faith in only Allah who is One, Omniscient and Omnipotent. He is neither begotten nor does He beget. Muslims believe that only God truly exists. Man and the entire creation exist only because God wills them to exist. God alone is the sole creator of everything that exists, and manifests His glory, power and attributes. Man has been created as a creature with free will so that by his surrender of free will to the divine will he may become worthy of God`s fellowship. This faith in God is realized by responding to the message of Allah through His prophet Muhammad. Allah is the name Muslims use for the supreme and unique God, who created and rules everything.

The heart of faith for all Muslims is obedience to Allah`s will.
Allah is eternal, omniscient, and omnipotent.
Allah has always existed and will always exist.
Allah knows everything that can be known.
Allah can do anything that can be done.
Allah has no shape or form.
Allah can`t be seen.
Allah can`t be heard.
Allah is neither male nor female.
Allah is just.
A believer can approach Allah by praying, and by reciting the Qur`an.
Muslims worship only Allah because only Allah is worthy of worship.
All Muslims believe that God is one alone:
There is only one God.
God has no children, no parents, and no partners.
God was not created by a being.
There are no equal, superior, or lesser Gods.

mosqueMuslims worship in a building called a mosque. An alternative word for mosque, from the original Arabic, is masjid, meaning place of prostration. Outside every mosque, or just inside the entrance, is a place where worshippers can remove and leave their shoes. There is also a place where they can carry out the ritual washing required before prayer. The main hall of a mosque is a bare room largely devoid of furniture. There are no pictures or statues. Muslims believe these are blasphemous, since there can be no image of Allah, who is wholly spirit.

Everyone sits on the floor and everyone in the mosque is equal in status. A niche in one of the walls, called a mihrab, shows the direction that the worshippers should face in order to face Mecca. Many mosques have a minaret which is a tall thin tower. A muezzin stands at the top of the tower and calls Muslims to prayer at the five ritual times of the day. Not all mosques in the UK have a minaret. Women can attend the mosque and when they do, they sit separately from the men. This is out of modesty and to prevent any distraction. It is more usual for women to pray at home.

As God is transcendent, too high and too holy for human beings, so some intermediaries are necessary to meuiate between men and God. Not even the prophet Muhammad could have direct contact with God, though the prophet had a vision of the Heaven in his state of Miraj (620 A.D.). Islam accepts the existence of angels who serve as intermediaries between God and man. Angels have been created out of light. They have no sex; they do not eat or drink. They have no free will. Their sole function is to sing praises of God and to carry out His command, day and night. They always do the right and so they have not to stand before the judgment bar of God on the Day of Judgment. Some important angels are as follow: Jibrail (Gabriel) is the angel of revelations in relation to Prophet Muhammad, Mikail (Michael) is the champion of faith and a protector of the Jews, Azrael the angel of death who separates the soul from the body of the dead, Israfil who will sound the trumpet on the Day of Judgment.
