Monotheism in the Islamic World View

In the Islamic world view every phenomenon of the world depends on and is created by a superior power. This superior power is God (Allah). He enjoys all the good attributes such as knowledge, power, will, life, etc.

Everything, from the smallest particles to the highest points in the galaxies and the unknown worlds are created by Him and are under His control. All the living things of the world, that is, man and other animals, are His subdued slaves, and from the point of view of slavery all of them are equal. Nothing is under such titles as children, wives, friends, etc., free from his servitude. He is the Creator and He provides all the creatures with the power of thinking, decision, material possibilities, and so forth.

This outlook is the very fundamental principle of Islamic plans and its effective and practical thoughts (Islamic Ideology).

The delicate melody of monotheism can be heard in hundreds of verses of the Qur'an. Pay attention to the following sample verses:

God there is no god but He, the Living, the Everlasting, Slumber seizes Him not, neither sleep, to Him belongs all that is in the heavens and the earth. Who is there that shall intercede with Him save by His leave? He knows what lies before them and that is after them, and they comprehend not anything of His knowledge save such as He wills. His Throne comprises the heavens and earth, the preserving of them oppresses Him not; He is the All- high, the All glorious. (2:255)﴿

And they say, 'The All-merciful has taken unto Himself a son.' You have indeed advanced something hideous. The heavens are well-nigh rent of it and the earth split asunder, and the mountains well-nigh fall down crashing for that they have attributed to the All-merciful a son; and it behooves not the All-merciful to take a son. None is there in the heavens and earth but he comes to the All- merciful as a servant. He has indeed counted them, and He has numbered them exactly. (19:88-94)﴿
