What do Muslims believe about Allah?


What do Muslims believe about Allah?

1- He is the one God, Who has no partner....

2- Nothing is like Him. He is the Creator, not created, nor a part
of His creation.

3- He is All-Powerful, absolutely Just.

4- There is no other entity in the entire universe worthy of
worship besides Him.

5- He is First, Last, and Everlasting; He was when nothing was,
and will be when nothing else remains.

6- He is the All-Knowing, and All-Merciful,the Supreme, the

7- It is only He Who is capable of granting life to anything.

8- He sent His Messengers (peace be upon them) to guide all of

9- He sent Muhammad (pbuh) as the last Prophet and Messenger for
all mankind.

10- His book is the Holy Qur'an, the only authentic revealed book
in the world that has been kept without change.

11- Allah knows what is in our hearts.

These are some of the basic guidelines Muslims
follow in their knowledge of God:

1- Eliminate any anthropomorphism (human qualities) from their
conception of Allah. His attributes are not like human attributes, despite similar labels
or appellations.

2- Have unwavering faith in exactly what Allah and Prophet
Muhammad (pbuh) described Allah to be, no more, no less.

3- Eradicate any hope or desire of learning or knowing the
modality of His names and attributes.

Belief totally in all the names and attributes of Allah; one cannot believe in some and
disbelieve the others.

4- One cannot accept the names of Allah without their associated
attributes, i.e. one cannot say He is Al-Hayy - 'The Living' and then say that He is
without life. Similarity in names (or meanings) does not imply similarity in what is being
described (referents). As a robotics arm differs from a human arm, so the "hand"
of Allah is nothing like a human hand, His speech is nothing like human speech, etc.

5- Certain words are ambiguous or vague in their meanings, and
thus may be susceptible to misinterpretation. Only those meanings that are in accordance
with what is specified by Allah and His Prophet (pbuh) are acceptable.

Doing Quran recitation is the religious duty of every Muslim.  In saheed Sunnah, it is encouraged to do the recitation of Quran in a melodious voice by the holy Quran reciter by making the voice more melodious and interesting. Reading quran and Making it melodious does not mean that it should be made more in singing tone but once should at least recite and read quranic Arabic in a good tone so that he/she himself feels good while listening to it and others also feel good while listening to it.
