i. Al-Khaliq (The Creator)

The Qur’an describes how Allah created Adam (a.s):

We created man from sounding clay, from mud moulded into shape…

Al Quran (15:26)

He began creating man from clay and made his progeny from a quintessence of fluid

Al Quran (32:7-8)

According to Tafsir Ibn Kathir, this is a reference of human creation from “Turabian”, or a Dust it is related to humankind born.

The creation of the first being Prophet Adam (A.S) from dust,( And Allah did create you from dust, then from Nutfah”).

It means Allah makes your father Adam from Dust, and then he started his offspring from semen.

The constructor or creator, Allah creates the Earth, Heavens. He creates everything from non-existence to existence, and he is the most merciful and majestically.

Allah Pak says in the Quran:

Does not man see that it is We Who created him from a sperm-drop? Yet behold! He (stands forth) as an open disputer

[36:77]

ii. Allah is our Malik (The King):

Allah called himself Al-Malik- which means The King, The Ruler and the Owner of Dominion.

Allah is the creator of all whole universe, and it has supreme authority and rules by no one.

It also called Maalik, Maleek, and it means ownership, possession, power and ability.

5. What Does Allah mean?

What Does Allah mean

Allah is the name of God, and Almighty in the Arabic Language name.

In other languages and different people speak in and worship in their tong. Allah’s name is never used for other peoples, thing, animal, it is specified for almighty.

In other languages, God or Allah’s name is used in the form of plural, but ‘Allah’ name is never used in the form of plural.

Because it does means Islam advocates the belief in the unity of Allah or God. I recommended one thing if they possible to speak ‘Allah’ because God is not the whole meaning of Allah.

Different people are using God (Khuda, Kuda) it is not the correct name of the spell, the right name and spelling are ‘Allah’, and the spelling of Allah name is ‘Allah’ not ‘Allah, Alha’ these types of words are not for Allah.

Allah recognized his name of 99 (ninety-nine) these attributes are mentioned in our Holy Quran. The book of our Prophet (p.b.u.h).

How to ask Allah for forgiveness:

Allah wants to the peoples are constant remembrance and Prayer of his worship. The Allah know we will fall into sin, but Almighty always seeks his sin and forgiveness ask for his mercy.

The Messenger of Allah Holy Prophet Muhammad (p.b.u.h) said:

By the One in Whose Hand my soul is! If you do not commit sins, Allah will replace you with a people who would commit sins and seek forgiveness from Allah; and Allah will certainly forgive them.

Prophet Hazrat Muhammad (SAW)

The Prophets are used to seek forgiveness more than 70 times a day.

(Bukhari Sharif)

Allah says in the Quran:

And Allah would not punish them while they seek forgiveness

Al- Quran
Quran Sayings

6. The Belief in God:

The Muslims believe in most merciful, unique and incomparable Allah, who is no Father, Mother, Son and Partner, and that none has the right to be worshipped but alone.

He is the true Allah; every other deity is false which made by humans. In the Quran, Allah describes himself:

He is God, the One. God, the Absolute. He begets not, nor was He begotten. And there is nothing comparable to Him

(Al- Quran 112: 1-4)

No one is invoked, prayed to shown any act of worship, but Allah is alone. Allah is alone, The Sovereign, Creature and the sustainer of everything in the universe.

Islam also rejected those religious or peoples and attribution of the form of Allah. All of these things are considered in Islam, fake and blasphemous.

Allah is the most powerful and exalted. Allah does not become drowsy, nor does he sleep. He and she can ask Allah anything directly without asking anyone else.

The Taw’heed or Shahada is the most fundamental expression and an Arabic term which is referred to the Islamic belief in the oneness of God.

Tawheed is the first pillar of Islam and most important, it is key to entering in Islam. In order to become a Muslim and adopt Islam, a person must pronounce the testimony of faith or ‘shahada’ in Arabic.

The testimony of faith in Islam is the most important thing each and every Muslim. The words or phrase “la-ilaha-illAllah” is announced during the Call to Prayer and Azan.

This is the word which calls the difference between a Muslim and a Non-Muslim. After reciting the word ‘karma,’ some other rules of Islam become obligatory on us which are given below.

The Prayer or salah is the most important pillar or Arka’n in Islam, and on the day of judgment, the prayers will be reckoned first, if the person praying is good then it will be successful. 

On the other hand, if the person prayers are incorrect in some way, then the person will have achieved failure.

There are five-time of obligatory Prayer that every sane adult Muslim has to observe each and every day. Prayer is a link between Allah and Person.

Allah Pak tells us about prayers in the Quran.

Al-Quran

The daily five prayers are:

  • Fajr (Early morning, before down)
  • Duhr (Midday, Just after-noon)
  • Asr (Mid after-noon)
  • Maghrib (Just after sunset)
  • Isha (After dark has fallen, At night )

iii. Support of Needy (Zakat):

Zakat is the third phase or pillar or Arka’n of Islam; It is a specified portion of Muslim’s wealth that is given to those people who are poor.

It is the whole amount of specific part it is given to the specific categories of people.

Zakat is charity given to the poor and un-wealthy peoples around the near the house, village and world.

Allah Pak says in the Quran:

True piety is this: to believe in God, and the Last Day…to perform the prayer and to pay the zakat.” ( Al- Quran 2:177)

Al-Quran

Prophet Muhammad (p.b.u.h) Has Said:

Similarly, the fasting is obligatory upon adult Muslim, Male and Female and every sane.

The Holy month of Ramadan falls once a year in order to piety and God-consciousness and strengthens our faith.

In the month of Holy Ramada that Allah has forbidden, practising be patience throughout the day, control the desire things, competing in generosity through charity.

The Month of Ramadan is the great month because this month Qur’an is revealed on Prophet Muhammad (p.b.u.h).

Allah says in the Holy Qur’an:

O you who believe! Observing the fast is prescribed for you as it was prescribed for those before you, that you may become pious.

(Al- Qur’an Chapter 2, Verse 183)

v. The Pilgrimage to Makkah (Hajj):

Hajj is the fifth pillar of Islam to perform the pilgrimage to Makkah. Every year millions of Muslim peoples go to Makkah and perform the Hajj.

It is one of the most important forms of worship in Islam and demonstrates unity among Muslims.

Each and every Muslim must perform this act at least once in his life if he is physically and financially capable.

This is the Process that requires more time and energy than a person, so it needs to be done only once in a lifetime.

The rewarding of Hajj is very Good, and the Holy Prophet Muhammad (p.b.u.h) said about Hajj.

He who performs Hajj seeking Allah’s pleasure and avoids all lewdness and sins (therein) will return after Hajj free from all sins, just as he was on the day his mother gave birth to him.
