Why Islam?

Islam was founded by Prophet Muhammad in Makkah and Madinah, Saudi Arabia.

The followers of Islam are called “Muslims.”

The word “Islam” means to submit one’s will to the one and only God Whom they call “Allah”.

The Angel Gabriel delivered revelations from God to Prophet Muhammad in the period 610 CE to 632 CE. These revelations were memorised by the first generation of followers called the Companions.

After the death of Prophet Muhammad in 632 CE, his Companion, Abu Bakr, who led the Muslim nation as Khalifah [Commander of the Believers], arranged to have the divine revelations collected in a book, called the “Qur’an.”

Since Muhammad was a Prophet and Messenger of God, everything he said or did in connection with Islam was inspired by God. Therefore, many reports of his sayings and deeds were collected as “hadith.” These hadiths provide the source for the practice of Islam.

From our rational understanding of God, we have deduced that:

God is Uncaused

God is the Cause of the universe

God is One

God is Self-Sufficient

God is Transcendent

God is Not Immanent and is Immaterial

God has an Independent Will

God is All-Powerful

God is All-Knowing

God is Personal

God is Eternal

We can now conclude that the Muslim God confirms our rational understanding of God derived from the cosmological causal argument.

Therefore Islam passes the nature of God test.

For the avoidance of doubt, I now set out below additional arguments in favour for the existence of the Muslim God:

The ontological argument

The teleological fine-tuning argument

  1. Dear My-Islam.info,

    With my poor knowledge I wish to venture in asking a question that why do the site use the word God. No where in the Holy book of Allah(SWT), the word God is mentioned. All through out in the Qur’an the readers would read Allah, Allahu, Rob. And these words are one & only and have no gender. But where as the word God tend to possess gender, such as he god, she god. goddess, godfather, godmother etc. Well my thinking may all the way be wrong. Perhaps the religious scholar could have a better logic or provide an acceptable answer.


    • Sheikh says:

      As salaamu ‘alaykum Mashudul.

      The arabic word for god is ilah.

      This word is found throughout the Qur’an in, for example,

      “He it is Who shapes you in the wombs as He wills. La ilaha illa Huwa, the All-Mighty, the All-Wise.” [Surah Al-‘Imran Chapter 3 Verse 6]

      The literal translation of La ilaha illa Huwa is “There is no god except He”. It means, “None has the right to be worshipped but He.”

      The entire section “The God Reality” is my da’wah page: an invitation to non-believers. Therefore the word God is used instead of Allah [swt]. I ask you to read and if necessary re-read all the posts in this section in the proper order and you will understand in sha Allah.

        Dear Sheikh,

        After having posted my comment, I soon realised that this has been done with good intention for the non-believers which I misunderstood at the first glance. May Allah (swt) help you and your team to attain your mission and goal. May your vision be a torch bearer for the present-day Muslims.
