the Name of Almighty GOD, the All-Merciful, the One who created
the heavens and the earth and everything in them, the only
One who deserves mankind's worship...
simple look at the world around us is all it takes to understand
what many never take time to reflect upon. The details of
this awesome universe we live in explicitly prove the presence
of a magnificent and unequalled author.
try to deny His existence, relying on their invented theories,
assumptions derived from unproven conjecture and guesses.
They conjure principles that no rational mind can follow.
For example, they say that our universe is a "cosmic
coincidence," a result of billions of years of random
self-assembly. However, if they would come out of their house
in the morning and find a new car in their driveway, they
would demand to know who put it there. Imagine if was said
to them: "No one put it there, in fact the parts just
gathered from unknown places and assembled themselves overnight
with no one's help. This is the result of a cosmic coicindence!"
one in his right mind could accept this answer. Indeed GOD
gave us intellects that do not allow us to believe such nonsense.
if people can not accept the parts of a single car coming
together randomly, then how can they believe that the entire
universe accomplished such a feat?! From the sky full of stars
and other visual wonders, to microscopic organisms we are
still discovering, to the design and function of the organs
of the human body, can one possibly believe that all of this
is the result of a mere coincidence?
up and think about how everything you see is organized in
such a perfect way! The sun, a ball of fire millions of miles
away, provides us with the heat and light we depend on every
day. About it, GOD says:
I (GOD) made a blazing, radiant lantern (78:13)
the length of the day, mankind indeed needs a rest from the
warmth and illumination of the sun. GOD causes the sun to
set and gives us darkness to rest, and a perfect nightlight
the moon and the splendorous stars. What masterful organization!
(GOD) has put the night and the day in your service, as well
as the sun, the moon, and the stars - all in subjection by
His Command. Verily in this there are signs for people of
you see how GOD merges the night into the day and He merges
the day into the night, (don't you see) that He has subjected
the sun and the moon (to His law), each running its course
for an appointed term? And surely GOD is well-acquainted with
what you do.
His Signs are the night and the day, and the sun and the moon.
Do not prostrate to the sun or the moon, rather prostrate
to GOD, the One who created them, if you really wish to worship
scientists comment on the precise balance of the sun and moon,
guessing at the innumerous disasters that would occur if the
sun or the moon were to stray from their paths the slightest
bit. The rational mind can come to only one conclusion, that
indeed something is keeping all of this in order. GOD says:
(GOD) draws the night as a veil over the day, each seeking
the other in rapid succession. He (GOD) created the sun, the
moon, and the stars, all governed by His Command. Is it not
His Right to create and govern? Blessed is GOD, the Cherisher
and Sustainer of all that exists! (7:54)
understand quite clearly that, since this paper you are reading
was written, then there was a writer, even though you do not
see him. And for every speech there was a speaker, and every
delicious dish has a cook behind it. So for every creation,
including our very existence, there is indeed a creator.
Creator is GOD who is without partners
that we agree that we are not the product of chance, that
we have been created, let us understand some things about
The One who created us, GOD, is also the sole Creator of everything
else that exists, as He says:
is GOD, your Lord, the Creator of all things. There is no
god except Him! (40:62)
of GOD's ominous power and control over the universe, it is
not befitting for man to believe that He needs anyone to help
Him. For verily GOD is Alone and does not share His Majesty
with anyone. He is the possessor of infinite mercy and compassion
for those who obey him, and His punishment is the most severe
and lasting for those who turn away from Him. GOD says:
for those who believed and did righteous deeds, their Lord
will admit them to His Mercy, and that will be the Achievement
for all to see!
those who believe and do righteous deeds, He (GOD) will give
them their rewards, and more, out of His bounty. But those
who are disdainful and arrogant, He will punish them with
a grievous penalty, and they will not find anyone to protect
or help them besides GOD. (4:173)
it is not befitting for us to ascribe a rival, partner, or
associate to GOD, it is extreme blasphemy to accuse Him of
having a father, mother, son, or other descendants or relatives.
GOD tells us:
HE is GOD, the One and Only; the eternal, absolute GOD who
did not father anyone, nor is He the son of anyone.
a tremendous crime it is to claim that GOD, the One free from
all imperfections, has a son! Unfortunately, many believe
that Jesus is GOD's son! Indeed Jesus
holds a high rank, as the Word of GOD and the Conveyor
of His Message, but not as His son, for GOD is high and exalted
above such a false claim. About this, GOD says:
say: "The Most Merciful (GOD) has begotten a son!"
Indeed you have put forth a most monstrous idea! It is as
if the skies are ready to burst, the earth to split asunder,
and the mountains to fall down in utter ruin for what they
say about the Most Merciful (GOD) having a son! For it is
not befitting for the Most Merciful (GOD) to take a son.
GOD is the sole Creator and Maintainer of all that exists.
He has no partner or affiliate, as He says:
what is revealed to you from your Lord there is no god except
Him Alone! And turn away from those who join other deities
with GOD! (6:106)
we owe Him something?
that we agree that GOD is our only Creator and Provider, and
we have seen His Statements denying any partners for Himself,
we want to know Does He want something from us?
has a right over us, as He created us. He is not asking much.
He is only asking us for that which he asked every nation
before us that we obey Him and follow His Messengers. He has
asked us to worship Him and not to associate partners with
Him. He says:
surely I (GOD) sent a messenger to every nation, commanding
them to worship GOD and shun false deities. (16:36)
is a very simple request, taking into account all He has given
"It is He (GOD) who has created you and made for you
the faculties of hearing, seeing, feeling and understanding.
Little is the thanks you offer.
naturally feel the urge to thank anyone who gives us something.
If we thank people for their generosity, should we not then
thank our Lord who has blessed us with so much? He reminds
if you were to try to count the blessings of GOD, you could
never enumerate them! Verily, mankind is ever oppressive and
to be truly thankful to GOD would entail worshipping Him,
as He has commanded us, obeying Him and following the Revelation
that He sent to us. In doing this, we will fulfill the purpose
of our existence, as GOD did not create us without a purpose:
I did not create the Jinn or Mankind except to worship Me.
if we ignore His Right upon us?
the right of GOD is not like ignoring the rights of others.
For if you disobey your mother, then you are subject to whatever
punishment she is capable of. Likewise, you may lose your
job if you ignore the orders of your boss. The judge may send
you to jail if you do not appear in court as he requests.
But no one can punish you eternally with a torment like what
GOD has promised for those who reject His Message. GOD is
going to establish a Day to judge each and every person. Indeed
we will be gathered in front of GOD to answer for our deeds.
About that Day, GOD says:
on that Day, His punishment will be such as no one else can
inflict, and His bonds will be such as no one else can bind.
have the chance now to free ourselves from such a horrible
and unending fate. We must look to our relationship with GOD
are we fulfilling His right on us? Are we worshipping Him
as He commands us?
aware that His punishment is so severe, that even the most
devout deniers of GOD will believe in Him after seeing it.
when they saw My Punishment, they said: "We believe in
GOD, the One GOD, and we reject the partners we used to join
with Him." (40:84)
we submit to GOD, worshipping Him and not associating partners
with Him, then for us are the unending joys and delights that
He has prepared for us in the Paradise:
no soul knows what delights are kept hidden for them, as a
reward for what they used to do.
when GOD establishes the Day of Judgement, the righteous will
hear the call:
you resting, satisfied soul! Come happily back to your Lord,
as you have gained His Pleasure! Enter and be among My servants,
enter My Garden!
we hope to hear this call, then we must put forth the effort
now, in this life, before it is too late.
to do now

you who believe! Observe your duties to GOD properly, as He
deserves, and do not die except as Muslims! (3:102)

are all for GOD, the Creator and Nourisher of everything that
exists, who has no partner. This am I commanded with, and
I am the first of the Muslims." (6:162-3)

or difficult procedures preventing you from becoming a Muslim.
The only thing for you to do is sincerely recite the following
testify that there is no deity worthy of any form of worship
except GOD Alone, and I testify that Muhammad is His Messenger."
