Allah 'Is The First And The Last'

The Creator, Maker And Shaper….. He Has Knowledge Of Everything.

In the Name of God, the Merciful, the Compassionate
All that is in the heavens and the earth magnifies God;
He is the All-mighty, the All-wise.

To Him belongs the Kingdom of the heavens and the earth;

He gives life, and He makes to die, and He is powerful

Over everything.

He is the First and the Last, the Outward and the Inward;
He has knowledge of everything.

It is He that created the heavens and the earth in six days
then seated Himself upon the Throne.

He knows what penetrates into the earth
and what comes forth from it,
what comes down from heaven, and what goes up into it.

He is with you wherever you are; and God sees
the things you do.

To Him belongs the Kingdom of the heavens and the earth;
and unto Him all matters are returned,

He makes the night to enter into the day
and makes the day to enter into the night..

He knows the thoughts within the breasts. (LVII, 1-5-)

Hast thou not seen that God knows whatsoever is in
the heavens, and whatsoever is in the earth? Three
men conspire not secretly together, but He is the
fourth of them, neither five men, but He is the
sixth of them, neither fewer than that, neither
more, but He is with them, whoever they may be;
then He shall tell them what they have done, on the
Day of Resurrection. Surely God has knowledge
of everything. (LIV 7-8)

He is God;
There is no god but He.

He is the knower of the Unseen and the Visible;
He is the All-merciful, the All-compassionate.

He is God;
There is no god but He.

He is the King, the All-holy, the All-peaceable,
the All-faithful, the All-preserver,
the All-mighty, the All-compeller,
the All-sublime.

Glory be to God, above that they associate!

He is, God;
the Creator, the Maker, the Shaper.

To Him belong the Names Most Beautiful.

All that is in the heavens and the earth magnifies Him;
He is the All-mighty, the All-wise. (LIX, 23-5-)

Allah Is Light

Now We have sent down to you signs
making all clear, and an example
of those who passed away before you,
and an admonition for the god fearing.

God is the Light of the heavens and the earth;
the likeness of His Light is as a niche
wherein is a lamp
(the lamp is a glass
the glass as it were a glittering star)
kindled from a Blessed Tree,
an olive that is neither of the East nor of the West
whose oil wellnigh would shine, even if no fire touched it;
Light upon Light;
(God guides to His Light whom He will.)

(And God strikes similitudes for men,
and God has knowledge of everything.)
in temples God has allowed to be raised up,
and His name to be commemorated therein;
therein glorifying Him, in the mornings and the evenings,
are men whom neither commerce nor trafficking
diverts from the remembrance of God
and to perform the prayer, and to pay the alms,
fearing a day when hearts and eyes shall be turned about,
that God may recompense them for their fairest works
and give them increase of His bounty;
and God provides whomsoever He will, without reckoning.

And as for the unbelievers,
their works are as a mirage in a spacious plain
which the man athirst supposes to be water
till, when he comes to it, he finds it is nothing;
there indeed he finds God,
and He pays him his account in full; (And God is swift
at the reckoning.)
or they are as shadows upon a sea obscure
covered by a billow
above which is a billow
above which are clouds,
shadows piled one upon another;
when he puts forth his hand, wellnigh he cannot see it.

And to whomsoever God assigns no light,
no light has he.

Hast thou not seen how that whatsoever is in the heavens
and in the earth extols God,
and the birds spreading their wings?

Each-He knows its prayer and its extolling; and God knows
the things they do.

To God belongs the Kingdom of the heavens and the earth,
and to Him is the homecoming.

Hast thou not seen how God drives the clouds, then composes them,
then converts them into a mass, then thou seest the rain issuing out of the midst of them?

And He sends down out of heaven mountains, wherein is hail,
so that He smites whom He will with it, and turns it aside
from whom He will;
wellnigh the gleam of His lightning snatches away at the sight.

God turns about the day and the night;
surely in that is a lesson for those who have eyes.

God has created every beast of water,
And some of them go upon their bellies,
and some of them go upon two feet,
and some of them go upon four,
God creates whatever He will; God is powerful
over everything.

Allah Is All-Knowing, All-Powerful, The Creator!

He who created the heavens and earth, and sent down for you
out of heaven water,
and We caused to grow therewith gardens full of loveliness
whose trees you could never grow.

Is there a god with God?
Nay, but they are a people who assign to Him equals!

He who made. the earth a fixed place
and set amidst it rivers
and appointed it firm mountains
and placed a partition between the two seas.

Is there a god with God?
Nay, but the most of them have no knowledge.

He who answers the constrained, when he calls unto Him,
and removes the evil
and appoints you to be successors in the earth.

Is there a god with God?
Little indeed do you remember.

He who guides you in the shadows of the land and the sea
and looses the winds,
bearing goods tidings before His mercy.

Is there a god with God?
High exalted be God, above that which they associate!

Who originates creation, then brings it back again,
and provides you out of heaven and earth.

Is there a god with God? (XXVII, 61-5)
God is He that looses the winds, that stirs up clouds,
and He spreads them in heaven how He will, and shatters them
then thou seest the rain issuing out of the midst of them,
and when he smites with it whomsoever of His servants
He will, lo, they rejoice,
although before it was sent down on them before that
they had been in despair.

So behold the -marks of God's mercy,
how He quickens the earth after it
was dead; surely He is the quickener
of the dead, and He is powerful
over everything.

But if We loose a wind, and they see it growing yellow,
they remain after that unbelievers.
Thou shalt not make the dead to hear,
neither shalt thou make the deaf to hear the call
when they turn about, retreating.

Thou shalt not guide the blind out of their error
neither shalt thou make any to hear
except for such as believe in Our signs, and so surrender.

God is He that created you of weakness, then He appointed
after weakness strength, then after strength He appointed
weakness and grey hairs; He creates what He will, and
He is the All-knowing, the All-powerful. (XXX, 47-54)

God knows the Unseen in the heavens and the earth;
He knows the thoughts within the breasts.

It is He who appointed you viceroys in the earth.

So whosoever disbelieves, his unbelief shall be
charged against him; their unbelief increases
the disbelievers only in hate in God's sight;
their unbelief increases the disbelievers only in loss.

Say: 'Have you considered your associates on whom
you call, apart from God? Show what they have
created in the earth; or have they a partnership
in the heavens?' Or have We given them a Book,
so that they are upon a clear sign from it?

Nay, but the evildoers promise one another
naught but delusion.

God holds the heavens and the earth, lest they remove;
did they remove, none would hold them after Him
Surely He is All-clement, All forgiving. (XXXV, 36-9)

Muhammad Speaks Of Allah:
'There Is No God But He…'

there is no god but He, the Living, the Everlasting.

Slumber seizes Him not, neither sleep;
to Him belongs
all that is in the heavens and the earth
Who is there that shall intercede with Him save by His leave?

He knows what lies before them
and what is after them,
and they comprehend not anything of His knowledge
save such as He wills.

His Throne comprises the heavens and earth;
the preserving of them oppresses Him not;
He is the All-high, the All-glorious.

No compulsion is there in religion.

Rectitude has become clear from error.

So whosoever disbelieves in idols
and believes in God, has laid hold of
the most firm handle, unbreaking; God is
All-hearing, All-knowing.

God is the protector of the believers;
He brings them forth from the shadows
into the light.

And the unbelievers-their protectors are
idols, that bring them forth from the light
into the shadows;
those are the inhabitants of the Fire,
therein dwelling forever. (II, 256-9)

That then is God your Lord;
there is no god but He,
the Creator of everything.

So serve Him,
for He is Guardian over everything.

The eyes attain Him not, but He attains the eyes;
He is the All-subtle, the All-aware. (VI, 102-3)
