God/Allah in Islam


Does your Quran say that God is one and you should only worship him? Does the word Allah have plural? Gender? Or is it as I understand that :

"Allah is one and the meaning on this word is the only thing worthy of worship" - If so does that mean that Muslims pray to only one God??? And you attribute no gender to God?


What you have to understand here is God in his terms not in mans terms, what I mean is that there is a Christan belief that God is man, this is not how we view God in Islam.

We see his as the creator of everything and nothing is like, nor could anything come close. As I have said before compare this to man making a television, can the television understand man? Can the television accurately describe man? No why? because the television is limited. So when describes God he doing an injustice to his majesty. We describe the details as they are described in the Quran without interpreation.

So God is not a gender, neither is more than one, in fact God is one, In Arabic one is not a number, number start with two.
We worship one God that is God, the word Allah is another name for God. Christan Arabs call God Allah and in the bible translation of the Arabic they have the word Allah.

Those who attribute human attributes to God

That is a problem for some people who cannot relate to this, as far as Islamic law is concerned we have a ruling about this, which translates as. "Anything that occurs to your mind, God is completely different to it."

Humans are limited and therefore project their own imagine onto God in an effort to understand him, this is wrong and someone is being unjust when they do this.

In other words God is unimaginable, beyond description in any shape or form. Neither does he have a partner or equal in any shape or form.
