Similarly, God will not make a mistake, becausemaking mistakes is an ungodly act.“….. my Lord never errs, nor forgets”.God performs godly acts:He has power over all things. The Islamic concept of God is that God has powerover all things. The Holy Quran says in several places:“For verily Allah has power over all things”Further the glorious Quran says:“Allah is the doer of all He intends”We must keep in mind that Allah intends only godly acts and not ungodly acts. : ¸ ƒ Ÿ ¸ƒ Ÿ – ƒ | Ÿ šfi ¸ ( ) fi ƒ ƒ : " ƒ "

  16. 16. ISLAMIC RESERACH FOUNDATION Spreading the Truth of Islam www.irf.netCONCEPT OF GOD IN MAJOR RELIGIONS Authored by: Dr. Zakir Abdul Karim NaikThey forget to mention that he was not granted visa for 21 countries of theworld. Can aperson imagine a God visiting the earth and requiring a visato enter a country! The Arcbishop of Greece said that if Rajneesh had notbeen deported, they would have burnt his house and those of his discipiles.The fourth test, which is the most stringent, is “There is none like untoHim”. The moment you can imagine ‘God’ or compare ‘God’ to anythingthen he (the candidate to divinity) is not God. It is not possible toconjure up a mental picture of the One True God. We know that Rajneeshwas a human being with a white flowing beard. He had 2 eyes 2 ears, 1nose, 1 mouthPhotographs and posters of Rajneesh are available inplenty. The moment you can imagine what god is, he is not God.Many are tempted to make anthropomorphic comparisons who wasgiven the title of Mr. Universe, the strongest man in the worl. What is theconcluding remark to this section of "acid test"? This said testcannot bepassed by anyone except the true God.By what name do we call God?The Muslims prefer calling Allah, instead of the English word ‘God’. TheArabic word, ‘Allah’, is pure and unique, unlike the English word ‘God’,which can be played around with.If you add ‘s’ to the word God, it becomes ‘Gods’, that is the plural of God.Allah is one and singular, there is no plural of Allah. If you add ‘dess’ to theword God, it becomes ‘Goddess’ that is a female God. There is nothing likemale Allah or female Allah. Allah has no gender. If you pre-fix tin beforethe word God, it becomes tin-God i.e., fake God. Allah is a unique word,which does not conjure up any mental picture nor can it be played aroundwith. Therefore the Muslims prefer saying Allah, but sometimes whilespeaking to the non-Muslims we may have to use the inappropriate wordGod for Allah. Since the intended audience of this book is general innature, consisting of both Muslims as well as non-Muslims, I have usedthe word God instead of Allah in several places in this article.God does not becomes a human being:Some people argue that God can do everything, then why cannot He takehuman form? If God wishes He can become a human being. But then Heno longer remains God because the qualities of God and human beings inmany respects are completely incompatible. The following paragraphs willshow the absurdity of the idea of God becoming a human being.God is immortal and human beings are mortal. You cannot have a God-man i.e. an immortal being, and at the same time and in the sameentity. It is meaningless. God does not have a beginning while humanbeings have a beginning. You cannot have a person, not having a 18 * For More Queries Regarding this Book Contact webmaster@irf.net
  17. 17. ISLAMIC RESERACH FOUNDATION Spreading the Truth of Islam www.irf.netCONCEPT OF GOD IN MAJOR RELIGIONS Authored by: Dr. Zakir Abdul Karim Naikbeginning and at the same time having a beginning. Human being havean end You cannot have a being, which has no end and an end at thesame time. It is meaningless.God Almighty does not require to eat whereas human beings requirenourishment to sustain life.“And He it is that Feeds but is not fed.” [Holy Qur’an 6 :14]God does not require rest or sleep while human beings cannot goindefinitely without rest.But He – the Living, The Self-subsisting, Eternal. 296 Noslumber can seize Him Nor sleep. His are all things In theheavens and on earth.” [Holy Qur’an 2:255]Worship of another human is useless:If the idea of God becoming a human is unacceptable, we must also agreethat there is therefore no sense in worshipping another human. If Godbecomes a human form, He ceases to be God and possesses all thequalities of a human. For example if a brilliant professor meets with anaccident and suffers irreparable loss of memory, it would be foolish on thepart of his students to continue to take lessons from him in that subject.Moreover if God takes human form, the same human cannot laterbecome God, since human beings, by definition, do not possess thepower to become God. The worship of God in a human form is thereforea logical fallacy and should be abhorred in all its forms.That is the reason why the Holy Qur’an speaks against all forms ofanthropomorphism.The glorious Quran says in the following verse:"There is nothing whatever like create him" (Al-Quran 42:11)God does not perform ungodly acts:The attributes of Almighty God preclude any evil since God is thefountainhead of justice, mercy and truth. God can never be thought ofas doing an ungodly act. Hence we cannot imagine God telling a lie,being unjust, making a mistake, forgetting things, and such otherhuman failings.Similarly God can do injustice if he wants but He willnever do it because being unjust is an ungodly act.The Holy Qur’an says:“Allah is never unjust In the least degree” ([Holy Qur’an 4:40)God can be unjust if he wants, but the moment God does injustice He ceases to be God. 19 * For More Queries Regarding this Book Contact webmaster@irf.net

Similarly God will not make amistake, because making mistakes is an ungodly act.“…… my Lord never errs, nor forgets”. [Holy Qur’an (20:52)]God performs Godly acts:He has power over all things: The Islamic concept of God is that God haspower over all things. The Holy Qur’an says in several places:“For verily Allah has power over all things” [Holy Qur’an (2:106)] [Holy Qur’an (2:109)] [Holy Qur’an (2:284)] [Holy Qur’an (3:29)] [Holy Qur’an (16:77)] [Holy Qur’an (35:1)]Futher the Glorious Quran says:“Allah is the doer of all He intends” [Holy Qur’an (85:16)]We must keep in mind that Allah intends only Godly acts and notungodly acts.Many religions at some point believe,directly or indirectly in thephilosophy of anthropomorphism i.e. God becoming a human form. Theircontention is that Almighty God is so pure and holy that He is unawareof the hardships, shortcomings and feelings of human beings. In orderto set the rules for human beings He came down to earth in the form ofa human. This deceptive logic has fooled countless millions through theages. Let us now analyze this argument and see if it stands to reason.The Creator prepares the instruction manual:Allah (SWT) has endowed us humans with reason and intelligence. Weinvent and manufacture appliances for specific purposes. Tape recordersfor instance are manufactured in large numbers. It has never beensuggested that in order to understand what is good for the tape recorderthe manufacturer should become a tape recorder himself. One simplyassumes that the manufacturer will publish an instruction manual, sincehe has complete knowledge of his product. In short the instructionmanual gives the dos and don’ts for the machine. 20 * For More Queries Regarding this Book Contact webmaster@irf.net
