Islamic Beliefs

This comes from


God is The One and Only Creator, the Only One to Whom worship is due; all other things or beings that we can thing of are His creatures and in no way comparable to Him. He is eternal, without beginning or end; Absolute, not limited by time or place. Man should not project his own animal qualities on God's sublime nature and must not think of Him as having a son or a partner.
God! There is no god but He,--- the Living, the Self-subsisting, Eternal. No slumber can seize Him nor sleep. His are all things in the heavens and on earth.[Qur'an 2:255]

Angels of God

Angels have a one-sided nature compared to all Mankind who are charged with emotions and desires. Angels have been created from divine Light that is unseen by Man unless they appear in human form. Angels obey God's commands and carry his orders. For the Angels to perform their duties, they have been given different qualities and powers to that given to Man. Qur'an has named some angels (peace be upon them) such as, Gabriel, Azrael, Israfil and Michael.
We send not the angels down except for just cause.[Qur'an 15:8]

Books of God

The Book of God is simply a Book of Guidance for all Mankind to live in peace and harmony with others in a just society, where Laws can be liberated from Man's desires and uncertainty to God's perfect knowledge. God's teaching started with Adam and completed by the Qur'an, the last of the Holy Books. Prior to Qur'an, God has sent down other revelations such as the Laws, the Psalms and the Gospel.
The revelation of the Book is from God the Exalted in Power, full of Wisdom.[Qur'an 46:2]

Messengers of God

Man's life on earth began with Prophethood. Adam was the first Man and the first of all Prophets and Muhammad was the seal of the Prophets. Their missions were simply the channels between God and mankind to receive God's teaching. All God's Messengers were human beings. Qur'an has named other God's Apostles such as, Enoch, Noah, Abraham, Lot, Jacob, Joseph, Moses, David, Elias, John and Jesus.
God did choose Adam and Noah, the family of Abraham, and the family of Imran above all people.[Qur'an 3:33]

The Day of Judgment

The reason behind Man's creation would not be complete without the Day of Judgment. The creation of Man, followed by receiving God's teaching through the revelations and prophecy, and abiding by His guidance and teaching in this probationary life, all these pre-arrangements are meant to stand before God to be judged for all deeds done by Man.
That Day will every soul be requited for what it earned; no injustice will there be that Day, for God is Swift in taking account.[Qur'an 40:17]

Predestination (or, supremacy of Divine Will

God has the perfect knowledge of his creation and the destiny of every creature. Although God gave the Man the initiative to lead his life in a total freedom, this would not put the veil on God's knowledge of future events. This is a necessary explanation for the theological doctrine of the monotheism.
To God do belong the unseen (secrets) of the heavens and the earth, and to Him goeth back every affair.[Qur'an 11:123]

Resurrection (Life after death)

Man's life on earth is very short in comparison to the second life. God Who created Man from dust will be able to repeat His creation again. So, all people shall be raised up from their graves to a new creation. The second life after the resurrection is eternal and its nature is the reflection of the life on earth.
Say, He will give them life Who created them for the first time! For He is well-versed In every kind of creation![Qur'an 36:79]
