RELIGION OF UNITY
(1) Unity of God [ALLAAH ALMIGHTY]
Speaking of the conception of God in Islaam, ,Edward Gibbon (1737-1794) Considered the greatest British historian of his time,
says: “The Creed of Hazrat Muhammad[Peace be upon Him] is free from the suspicion of Ambiguity and the Qur’aan is a glorious testimony to the unity of God. The Prophet of Makkah rejected the worship of idols and men, of stars and planets, on the rational principle that whatever is corruptible must decay and perish, that whatever is born must die, that whatever rises must set. In the Author of the universe his rational enthusiasm confessed and adored an infinite and Eternal Being, without form or place, without issue or similitude, present to our secret thoughts, existing by the necessity of His own nature, and deriving from Himself all moral and intellectual perfections. These sublime truths …are defined with metaphysical precision by the interpreters of the Qur’aan.
