About the book
Although the vast majority of mankind believe in a Creator or Supreme Being, their concepts vary. Islam, in the Qur'an and Sunnah, affirms the existence and Oneness of the Creator and describes Allah (swt) as having the most perfect attributes, thus enabling us to have a proper concept of Him and to establish a strong bond with Him, based on the understanding of His sublime attributes.
But the influence of philosophy and other ideas that are alien to Islam led to the emergence of distorted concepts about Allah (swt). Dr. 'Umar S. al-Ashqar discusses these distortions that have crept into Muslims' minds, highlighting the fact that the only correct way to understand the verses of the Qur'an and the ahaadeeth is the way in which they were understood by the first generations of this ummah (the salaf). He examines modern concepts, such as the theory of evolution, and proves that they are wrong and false. Following the Qur'anic injunction to ponder the signs of Allah (swt) in the universe, he also pays attention to the study of natural phenomena which clearly point to the existence and Oneness of the Almighty Creator. Thus, Dr. Al-Ashqar affirms the principle which lies as the heart of Islamic faith and practice, namely Tawheed, the Absolute Oneness of the Divine.
This book includes topics such as:
- Belief in Allah
- How Allah made his creation
- The miracles of Allah
- The love and speech of Allah
- Defining the names of Allah
- The benefit of knowing these names
- And many other beneficial topics!
