Allah is the One and Only God. What does Non-Muslim know about Allah? Who is Allah? What is Allah? Well let us all know.
Allah is the God that Muslim worship, He is not neither born nor begotten. Allah doesn’t have and shapes, size, measure, image or anything. Muslim believe that only after the Judgement days that Allah can be seen. Allah didn’t live in any castle, palace or house (like some Greek Gods live), or doesn’t live in any place. He is the ruler. He can be anywhere He wants to. Allah knows everything, not every single thing happening in this universe not known to Him.
If there’s a Muslim who doesn’t believe in Allah, or believe that there is other God beside Allah, his believe is not true according to true Muslim’s belief. All Muslim believe that Allah is the only God that has powers on all of things, all of happenings. In Arabic it is called Tauhid al-Rububiyyah, meaning “Believing that only Allah can creates, have powers and control over everything” The word “have powers and control over everything” can be explained that only Allah create human, animals, insects, trees, plants, the mountains, the clouds, earth, moon, other planets, our universe, galaxy and many other things such as disease, nature, virus, rain, and everything. He is the one that creates, rule, govern, own, and can destroy it when the correct time comes (judgement day).

Another belief of Muslim is called Tauhid al-Uluhiyyah, or can be translated as “Believing that only Allah is the true God that Muslim had to know, approve, and worship, there’s no other God beside Allah and no other things equal to be worshipped as Allah”. This can be said that if there’s a Muslim believe that Allah had a subordinate, a demi-God (half god) or other God equal, lower or powerful than Allah than this belief is wrong. Totally, totally wrong!!!
Question been asked, why only one God? Isn’t it easier for God or Allah to have many subordinates God to help in controlling the universe, the world? OK let’s talk and discuss about this logically.
Let’s say there is a country called Country A. This Country A has a government, and the country rules stated that the one who rule the country is the most powerful person in charge, the President. OK get the idea so far? What if there are two Presidents in Country A, who is the most powerful one? President X and President Y surely both cannot have full powers, right? Not having full powers means that they are not powerful yet, and by sharing powers also mean they are not so powerful because they both share and depend on each other.
So change this President title into God, and you will get the same idea. No God is powerful enough if that God have to depend on others, and not powerful enough if that God have to share power with other God. Remember Hercules story where Zeus were defeated by Hades, even though Zeus is the most powerful God of Greek. Shame isn’t it? Right? That is not the true image of a powerful God. That is why for Islam, and Muslim, and advisable to all non Muslim to accept that Allah is the One and Only God, the Most Powerful.
