Call to islam part 9

Aslam wa alikum

A man must take a moment to contemplate on the words of his creator, Allah the most exalted and High,
who says: It is He Who brought you forth from the wombs of your mothers when you knew nothing; and
He gave you hearing and sight and intelligence and affections: that ye may give thanks (to Allah)
(Q16:78) Allah also says: But Allah has created you and your handwork (Q37:96). Allah further says:
Allah is the Creator of all things (Q39:62), I have only created Jinn and men, that they may worship
Me. (Q51:56).
It means that Allah didn’t bring creatures into existence except to be worshiped alone with associating
partners, through sincere devotion. Therefore He is Allah besides whom no deity is worthy of worship.
Allah, the creator, says: Allah is He, than Whom there is no other god;- Who knows (all things) both
secret and open; He, Most Gracious, Most Merciful. Allah is He, than Whom there is no other god;- the
Sovereign, the Holy One, the Source of Peace (and Perfection), the Guardian of Faith, the Preserver of
Safety, the Exalted in Might, the Irresistible, the Supreme: Glory to Allah. (High is He) above the partners
they attribute to Him. He is Allah, the Creator, the Evolver, the Bestower of Forms (or Colours). To Him
belong the Most Beautiful Names: whatever is in the heavens and on earth, doth declare His Praises and
Glory: and He is the Exalted in Might, the Wise. (Q59:22-24). Allah, the exalted, also says: Say: "O
People of the Book! Come to common terms as between us and you: That we worship none but Allah;
that we associate no partners with him; that we erect not, from among ourselves, Lords and patrons other
than Allah." If then they turn back, say ye: "Bear witness that we (at least) are Muslims (bowing to
Allah’s Will). (Q3:64). Here Allah is commanding Muhammad to say to the people of the book; Jews
and Christians, to rally around a common term between us and them; that is, we should worship none
other than Allah; that we associate no partners in His worship; that none of us shall take one another as
lords besides Allah. In this verse, Allah the creator, commands his messenger and prophet Muhammad
(May the peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) to remind the people of the book; the Jews and the
Christians, that they must believe in Muhammad, the last prophet, as well as all other prophets (Peace
upon them) who commanded the true worship of Allah, the manifest truth. Allah, the exalted, says: Say:
"He is ((Allah)) Most Gracious: We have believed in Him, and on Him have we put our trust... (Q67:29),
... Is it not His to create and to govern? Blessed be Allah, the Cherisher and Sustainer of the worlds!

(Q7:54). Allah also says: Behold! In the creation of the heavens and the earth, and the alternation of
night and day,- there are indeed Signs for men of understanding (Q3:90). It means that in the heavens,
the earth, the alternating of day and night are signs and clear-cut evidence for those who have living
minds that guide them to the right path as it guides them to the belief in Allah, the exalted, and in his
messengers. Allah sent his messengers to command people to worship Him alone, without associating
partners in his worship. They were sent to forbid people from worshiping other deities besides Allah,
whether it is the sun, the moon, objects, idols, graves, or any other creature. The worship of any creature
is not legitimate; rather all acts of worship should be dedicated to Allah alone, which is why he sent all
his messengers, May peace be upon them, to command people to do just that. While informing us about
his messengers, Allah, the exalted, says: We sent not an apostle except (to teach) in the language of his
(own) people, in order to make (things) clear to them... (Q14:4), For We assuredly sent amongst every
People an apostle, (with the Command), "Serve Allah, and eschew Evil": (Q16:36)
