God– A word used uncountable number of times every day. Sometimes people use itfor preaching; sometimes it’s used when saying a silent prayer. Some people sayit when frustrated and often it’s used when in pain. God is the amazing creatorof the whole universe. He is omnipresent and infinite.
He is all-seeing,all-knowing and caring. To me, God is the one thing that grounds me, that willremain constant and I can turn to Him whatever happens and wherever I go. Godthe omnipotent is eternal and absolute. He is just and patient with me evenwhen I have strayed. God is the protector and sustainer who brings people outof darkness into light. Everyone always has direct access to worship God, as Hehears all who praise and call upon Him.
He is close to us and listens to everyperson who calls out to him. Theultimate purpose of life is to acknowledge the greatness of God, establish adirect connection with him, and worship Him alone. Worshipping is not limitedto rituals such as praying and fasting, it includes all actions that arepleasing to God such as having good manners, being honest, establishing justice, being patient and helping the needy.I believe in the Oneness and Uniqueness of Almighty God, who is the Creator andLord of all, perfect in all His attributes. He alone deserves our worship andin this lies our happiness and success in this life and the hereafter. God isthe protector and the sustainer and his mercy knows no bounds. In order to be atrue believer, one must believe in the absolute oneness of God, as the onlyCreator, Preserver and Nourisher of everything.
However, this belief in thetrue characteristics of God is not the sole condition of true faith; one mustalso acknowledge that God is the only one who deserves to be worshipped. Hiscommands and guidelines for how to live one’s life should always takeprecedence over the commands of anything He created. Indeed, He guides humanityto what is best for them in this life and the hereafter and He is All-Knowingand All-Wise.Havingembraced this understanding of God, one should constantly have faith in Him,and should remain steadfast on the truth. When true faith enters a person’sheart, it positively impacts their outlook and behaviour. One might wonder whatFaith is? Faith is that which resides firmly in the heart and reflects inactions. I would be ungrateful if I denied the basic truth of the existence ofGod. Prayer is a connection between man and God.
It is a means of communicating.Godis the ultimate Being in existence, perfect in power, love, and character. Supremeand Eternal, Infinite and Mighty, Merciful and Compassionate, Creator andProvider – God has no father or mother,no son or daughter.
None is equal to Him. He is God of all humankind, not of aspecial tribe or race. In return for all the great favors and mercy, God doesnot need anything from us, because He is Needless and Independent. God asks usto know Him, to love Him and to enforce His law for our benefit and our owngood.I conclude with thefollowing statement: Our God is One God: There is no God but He, Most Gracious,Most Merciful.
