‘Aqa’id : Tawhid

Statement of Beliefs regarding Tawhid {Oneness of God}

ALlāh Is One.

He Is Alone. He has no need of partners.

He has no equal. He Is Unique. He Is Alive

He resembles no one and there is nothing like Him.

He Alone is worthy of Worship.

He Sees and Hears everything.

He is not subordinate to anyone, nor does He depend on anyone.

He has neither given birth nor has He been born.

He Is Eternal. He has been from eternity and shall remain till eternity.

He Has Command over everything, and nothing happens without His Knowledge.

He Does whatever He Wills and there is no one to challenge Him.

All that happens in this world happens through His Will, and nothing goes against His Will, so much so that even a leaf does not fall from a tree without His Order.

He neither sleeps nor does slumber overtake Him.

All good Qualities are His and He Is Free from all blemishes.

He Is The Judge. He Will bring all of His creation to life again on the Day of Judgment.

He Gives life and Causes death.

He Sustains everything.

He Is The Creator. He Is The Lord of all. He Is Merciful to His creation. He Forgives whoever He Wills.

He Is Just. He Is Almighty and Powerful, He Bestows to His slaves respect or reduces them to disgrace. He Is The Punisher and Punishes those who deserve His Punishment.

He is not bound by anything.

He’s Speech (kalam) is not like the speech of man.

His Signs and Qualities are there for all to see, but no one can truly know the mystery of His Existence.

All of His Qualities are Eternal and none of Them will ever diminish.

He Is Free from human qualities and whatever is said in the Qur’an regarding such qualities, their meaning should be left to Him as He Alone Knows their true significance. Whatever the Qur’an says regarding them is true. We believe in all of them without being inquisitive and have full faith in them. This is the best way for us, however we may give meaning to them in accordance with our (limited) understanding in order to make them more comprehensible and easy to understand.

All good and evil in this world happens with His Full Knowledge long before their happening. This is known as Fate or Destiny.

He Created human beings with the ability to understand and comprehend. According to their discretion they commit either good or evil. He Is Pleased with good deeds and Displeased with sinful deeds and Rewards or Punishes accordingly.

He has not commanded His slaves to do anything beyond their capacity.

He is not bound by anything. Any kindness that He Shows is on account of His Mercifulness and Generosity.

He Alone Possesses the Full and Complete Knowledge of the Unseen.

And all dominion belongs to Him. He Alone Is The Lord of the worlds.
