2) who is allah?
(59 : 23-24)
23 : he is allah beside whom la ilaha illa huwa (none has the right to be worshipped but he), the king, the holy, the one free from all defects, the giver of security, the watcher over his creatures, the all- mighty, the compeller, the supreme. glory, be to allah! (high is he) above all that they associate as partners with him . 24 : he is allah, the creator, the inventor of of all things, the bestower of forms. to him belong the best names. all that is in the heavens and the earth glorify him. and he is the all-mighty, the all-wise .
(20 : 14)
“verily! i am allah! la ilaha illa ana (none has the right to be worshipped but i), so worship me, and perform as-salat (iqamat-as- salat) for my remembrance.
(2 : 255)
allah! la ilaha illa huwa (none has the right to be worshipped but he), al-hayyul-qayyuum (the ever living the one who sustains and protects all that exists). neither slumber nor sleep overtakes him. to him belongs whatever is in the heavens and whatever is on the earth .who is he that can intercede with him except with his permission ? he knows what happens to them (his creatures) in this world, and what will happen to them in the hereafter. and they will never compass any thing of his knowledge except that which he wills. his kursi extends over the heavens and the earth and he feels no fatigue in guarding and preserving them. and he is the most high, the most great. (this verse 2:225 is called ayat-ul-kursi) .
(35 : 13)
he merges the night into the day (i.e.the decrease in the hours of the night is added to the hours of the day), and he merges the day into the night (i.e. the decrease in the hours of the day is added the hours of the night). and has subjected the sun and the moon: each runs its course for a term appointed. such is allah, your lord; his is the kingdom , and those, whom you invoke or call upon instead of him, own not even a qitmir (the thin membrane over the date-stone).
(3 : 18)
allah bears winess that la ilaha illa huwa (none has the right to be worshipped but he), and the angels, and those having knowledge (also give this witness); (he always) maintains his creation in justice la ilaha illa huwa (none has the right to be worshipped but he), the all- mighty, the all-wise.
(3 : 51)
truly! allah is my lord and your lord, so worship him (alone). this is the straight path.
