Attributes of God mentioned in Quran

Mirza Bashir Ahmad

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.

Buddha’s solemn utterance

March 28, 2013

2005-01-19-lotus-pond
Gospel of Buddha

And the Buddha breathed forth this solemn utterance: 19

“Do not deceive, do not despise
Each other, anywhere.
Do not be angry, nor should ye
Secret resentment bear;
For as a mother risks her life
And watches o’er her child,
So boundless be your love to all,
So tender, kind and mild.20
“Yea, cherish good-will right and left,
All round, early and late,
And without hindrance, without stint,
From envy free and hate,
While standing, walking, sitting down,
Whate’er you have in mind,
The rule of life that’s always best
Is to be loving-kind.21

Paarsurrey says:

I quote from Quran.
[7:157] ‘And ordain for us good in this world, as well as in the next; we have turned to Thee with repentance.’ God replied, ‘I will inflict My punishment on whom I will; but My mercy encompasses all things; so I will ordain it for those who act righteously, and pay the Zakat and those who believe in Our Signs —

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.

Jesus never had any girlfriends; why should the others have?

Okay, I’ll agree with you. The Quran is the word of God…for sure. I’ll accept that.

Now, what does that mean for me? Can I beat my wife/girlfriend as is God’s word in 4:34? Can I start waging war on the infidels….as is God’s word in 9:29? Am I not supposed to take Christians and Jews as friends? Am I supposed to believe that the Jews are children of Apes and Pigs…..all that good stuff?

How soon can I start a jihad on the kafirs? How soon should I start transforming my great country and implement sharia law, just like Saudi Arabia?

If the Quran is the word of God, then God is a terrible writer.

Hi friend Planck

I thank you for accepting Quran as the word of the Creator- God Allah YHWH. It is indeed very natural to accept that fact.

You don’t have to start now doing anything mentioned by you:

1. You don’t have to beat your wife; Muhammad never did that.
2. You don’t have to wage war on the infidels. That was allowed only for a limited time due to the persecution of Muslims by the infidels. It is no more valid in the present scenario as prophesized by Muhammad himself. The Promised Messiah 1835-1908- Imam Mahdi has abolished such killings and explained the concept of Jihad from Quran.
3. One cannot have any girlfriends to have sex with; Jesus never had any girlfriends, why should the others do such things. One should be sincere with the girls, and if one wants, one could marry anyone of them.
4. You can have surely good Jews and good Christians as your friends; only at the time of war that was prohibited and cautioned. Please read #2 above.
5. Jews and Christians of our times are human beings; must be respected and loved as anyone else. They are not monkeys or pigs; who told you that?
6. You can read Quran and after understanding its logical and reasonable arguments and with your good character; you could convince others for the truth of Quran/Islam/Muhammad; that is the concept of Jihad.
7. There is no Sharia Law named in Quran; that might be the concept of Saudi Arabia, only. Saudi Arabia do not represent Quran/Islam/Muhammad.

Quran is a Word from the Merciful and Beneficent Creator – God Allah YHWH.

I love Jesus and Mary as mentioned in Quran.

Thanks

I am an Ahmadi peaceful Muslim
