Islamic viewpoint

God is known through Divine Revelation

Muslims say that God can be known because the Qur’an is the Word of God:



The revelation of the Book [this Qur’an] is from Allah [swt], the All-Mighty, the All-Wise.[1]

Therefore, Muslims know that God speaks.

God is known through His Attributes

The Qur’an, in turn, reveals what God is like, for example,

God is Uncaused

He [Allah (swt)] begets not, nor was He begotten.[2]

God is the Creator

He is Allah, the Creator, the Inventor of all things, the Bestower of forms. To Him belong the Best Names. All that is in the heavens and the earth glorify Him. And He is the All-Mighty, the All-Wise.[3]

God is One

Say [O Muhammad (saws)], “He is Allah, [the] One.”[4]
