Who is Allah

In the name of Allah(God)most Gracious most Compassionate

many of us didn't know that, the name of Allah is actually is the direct translation of God in english and Ilahi in malay as well as other language which means God...
during the dark age of arab which commonly called the age of jahiliyyah... the use of Allah are not well known among the barbaric society of arabs as they use the name of idols such Uzza, Al-Lat, Manah and other idol name to replace the calling of God (Allah)...

Allah is the God which rules the heaven and the earth, created life from nothingness and sustaining the world to its pre ordained condition ... He is the one who gave order to His servants, the angels who were created and constantly taking orders from Allah S.W.T ... different from other believes, the angels are the creations of Allah S.W.T which were never given the title of the children of God... the angels were created from lights and does not disobey the commandment of Allah S.W.T... unlike some of other beliefs, there is no such thing as fallen angel as the perfection of the Al-mighty's creation only to obey on every task given and they do not sleep eat and rest and they don't have gender among them and they do not have the lust temptation as human does.... one of them is Jibril (Gabriel) whose job is to deliver the revelation from Allah to His messenger... some hadith state that Gabriel was the leader of all the other angels and other angels have their own specialized task which Allah created for them such as Ridhwan the guardian of heavens,Raqib and A'tid the one who keep record of every good and bad that human did...and there are alot of other angels who have different task in hand....

Misinterprated by many, the 99 name of Allah is not the 99 forms or 99 different Gods... 99 name of Allah is the name of God which is the charachter of God and another way to address God besides the calling of Allah... for instance, i'll state a few of it...1.Ar-Rahman=The All-Compassionate..2.Ar-Rahim=The All-Merciful..3.Al-Malik =The Absolute Ruler..4.Al-Quddus=The Pure One , and the list goes on and on until the 99th and including Allah it is 100 altogether... the calling usually optionally used during the du'a when addressing Allah... The full list of Asma-Ul-Husna can be found here (http://www.sufism.org/society/asma/)

e.g: Oh Al-Malik, you are the ruler of the world... unto you i seek refuge and help...etc.

the concept of God is very clear in Islamic view... the book of revelation were given as guidance to human through Gabriel down to The Messenger of Allah S.W.T... Messenger or also called Rasulullah... there alot of Rasul the ones repeatedly mentioned in Quran, there was 25 of them, starting from Adam to last of among them Rasulullah was Muhammad SAW... that includes Moses(Musa AS), Abraham(Ibrahim AS), Jesus(Isa AS)... each of them were given the book where Moses recieves the book of Torah and Jesus was given the book of Injeel and every one of them call for the same calling, which is to praise and surrender oneself to one God, which is Allah...
those who does not believe in the Messenger does not fulfill the 6 pillars of faith where one of them needs us to believe in the messengers of Allah...as stated above, Allah neither have a father nor son... the association of God with anything including idols and characteristic of human is called blasphemy or shirk and it prohibited altogether and those who did shirk are considered transgressed and need to come back to exact belief to prevent punishment upon themselves... therefore the drawings and mental images of God are also forbidden as no human has ever laid eyes on Allah and nobody well deserved to do so...

Human is a form of life which Allah created the soul purpose is to praise and pray to Allah SWT... unlike the angles, human have wills,lust and feelings of wanting and the nature of the creation is very unique... it is once said the righteous of a man to obey Allah's commandment are better than the angels as human needs to overcome strong temptation surrounding them unlike the angels and the worst of a human who does not believe are worse than the Shaytan (satan) for shaytan doe not deny the existance of God..

It was all started after the creation of Adam,where the lifes in the heaven including the angels and iblis( leader of satan)-originally stays in the heaven with other creations of Allah- were called to pay respect on the creation of Allah which human was created from dust... every each of them show the respect to Adam except iblees.. stating that they were created from fire and the human were from dust (which comes from a low position)... the act of refusal and questioning the authotrity of Allah causing them to be condemned in the fire of hell in the time to come while in that time, iblees will whisper and call for more sons and daughters of Adam to avenged them to join them in the punishment of hell.... unlike many believes, the satan and iblees does not rule the hell, in fact they will be the prisoner of hell and have no authority on anything except curse on themselve and the will to make revenge on human kind...while Allah is the who one created hell to punish the wrongdoers and transgressor where the angels will receive strict order from the almighty to take in charge of the pubishment in hell....

after Adam and Eve were tricked to disobey Allah's ruling in the heaven... they were thrown to earth in order to put to test until certain amount of time, either caused by natural death or during armageddon day..whichever come first.. the earth will be destroyed and wrapped up and those who were put to death are resurrected back the same way how humans were created from nothing to something... as everything which is alive will be facing death including the angles will be put to death except Allah SWT as the omnipotent and All-Living are the special attributes of Allah only... after the resurrection, human's deeds will be the deciding factor wheter they will be the people of Hell or they will be back home to Heaven... the non-believers is a certain for everlasting fire of hell where the pain are said to be increased every second and it'll be the day when human will wish for absolute death which will not be granted... for believer, those who did more good than bad in life will be sent to heaven while a wrong doers who overcome their good deeds will be sent to hell until the bad deeds were all compensated and they will be sent to heaven to join the rest of other believers ... For a muslim its not an absolution to go to paradise even if u are a believer...

Allah is the one who rule the world and no other authority overcome Him... not the satan, human nor the angels... no power could even be close to the power of His and no one able to love like Allah does... no knowledge surpasses His and NO being will ever get ahead of Him...

He is Allah the only one and absolute...

*Question? Cbox plis XD
