Attributes of God mentioned in Quran

Islam says that we have One God Who is Gracious—i.e., He takes care of all our needs and He provides us with our requirements without our asking or striving for them. Islam says that we have One God Who is Merciful—i.e., He produces the best reward for our efforts and does not let them go in vain.

Islam says that we have One God Who is the ‘Lord of the Day of Judgment’—i.e., He pronounces reward or punishment for our deeds. He warns us of the consequences of following the wrong path, so that we do not become heedless and forget the goal of our life that He has ordained for us. One day we will be held answerable before Him.

Islam says that we have One God Who is Most Forgiving—i.e., when we strive in His path, He forgives our mistakes and shortcomings and protects us from their ill consequences.

Islam says that we have One God Who is the Acceptor of repentance—i.e., when we feel true remorse for our sins and turn towards the right path with true sincerity and wholeheartedly pledge to get rid of consequences of sins and to do good deeds, God too comes to our help, accepts our repentance and covers our sins with His mercy.

Islam says that we have One God Who is All-Powerful—i.e., nothing is beyond His power, no matter how difficult or impossible it may seem to us. Islam says that we have One God Who is All-Hearing—i.e., He hears the call of everyone and there is no voice that does not reach Him.

Islam says that we have a God Who is All-Knowing—i.e., no deed or thought, whether overt or covert, is beyond the sphere of His knowledge. Islam says that we have One God Who is the Helper—i.e., at times of crisis and difficulty, He comes to our aid, provided we have a true relationship with Him.

Islam says that we have One God Who is Eternal—i.e., He has always been and shall always be; time does not have any effect on Him. Islam says that we have One God Who is the Most Majestic —i.e., He is the perfect blend of all that is perfect and all that is good, and He alone is worthy of our adoration.

Islam says that we have One God Who is very Loving—i.e., He loves those who establish personal communion with Him, and He shows more love and loyalty towards them than any other lover. Islam says that we have One God Who Speaks—i.e., He bestows His speech upon those who have established communion with Him.

Though He is the knows of all subtleties and invisible to our eyes, He sprinkles the pure water of his loving speech upon those whose hearts are ablaze with the fire of His love, lest it should burn them to ashes. How beautifully the Promised Messiah(as) (Founder of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Jama‘at) has said:

‘But for Your grace, I would have perished and turned to dust; God knows where this dust might, then, have been thrown.’

This is the God presented by Islam. I do not ask you to believe in Him. All I say is that these are the attributes of our God as proclaimed by Islam. Islam goes further and proclaims that we can find this God if we seek and strive for Him. Do you now consider this search and investigation to be useless and irrelevant? If you have a mind that ponders and a sensitive heart, you will never consider this quest futile.

Learning how to spot, admit and seek God for direction and removal of these obstacles in daily Life, IS THE ONLY path to a spiritual life and self- realization or God consciousness.

Paarsurrey says:

I agree with you there; and that has been expressed by the Creator God in the very first chapter of Quran. He has taught us the human beings, a perfect prayer to that effect. It is named Fatehah – the Opener of heart and soul for self realization, God consciousness and is the only path to spiritual life:

1:1] In the name of Allah, the Gracious, the Merciful.

[1:2] All praise belongs to Allah, Lord of all the worlds,

[1:3] The Gracious, the Merciful,

[1:4] Master of the Day of Judgment.

[1:5] Thee alone do we worship and Thee alone do we implore for help.

[1:6] Guide us in the right path —

[1:7] The path of those on whom Thou hast bestowed Thy blessings, those who have not incurred Thy displeasure, and those who have not gone astray.
