Analytical Study of Concept of God in different Religions
The greatest benevolence of Islam for the humanity is the belief in monotheism (Allah is One). Just as the soul of Islam is its belief system, the soul of these beliefs is to believe in, and have faith in, the Oneness of the Almighty. This belief is the pinnacle of all others which profess the Oneness of Allah. He is Unique and Singular in terms of nature and attributes. All the Prophets and Messengers preached the same belief throughout their lives. This belief has been comprehensively described in Surah Al-Ikhlas and Ayat al-Kursi (The Throne Verse). Although it is indubitably true that if this belief is adulterated, the edifice of other beliefs will surely collapse, many religions – other than Islam – have contaminated the pure concept of Allah’s Oneness. Idolist or naturalistic religions have depraved the true concept of Allah. Even some divine religions have veered off from the true idea of Tawheed and their followers resorted to Shirk. The knowledge pattern needed to ascertain the existence of God has to be the Quranic one, and sans it affirming the existence of Allah may become perplexing. In the instant article, besides proving a brief history of the concept of God in ancient religions and civilizations and the affirmation of Allah’s Oneness in the light of historical and rational arguments, all the modern-day scepticism regarding the existence of Allah will be addressed in the light of opinions of revered scholars and Iqbal’s thought.
