Sample text

Page 35 The Bible reveals that Yahweh in His self-disclosure reveals that He is the One Who loves us perfectly. In fact, the biblical witness is that Yahweh God gives Himself in suffering, redemptive love. Because of His love, He sorrows when we sorrow, He suffers when we suffer, He is pained by our sin. God loves us totally. The Christian witness is that God invites us into a covenant fellowship with Himself; God invites us to know and have fellowship with the One Whom Islam praises through the reverent repetition of His ninety-nine glorious names.

Because God is One and One only, to associate any being with God is both a sinful and an infidel act. Islam makes clear that God has no son, no father, brother, sister, wife, or daughters. The pre-Islamic (jahiliyya) idea of calling goddesses daughters of Allah (al-Manat, al-Lat, al-Uzza) was condemned by the Prophet (peace be upon him) for Allah has no need for daughters. In His unity, God is not like any other person or thing that can come to anyone's mind. His qualities and nature are conspicuously unique.

He goes on fashioning and evolving new forms. He sustains all that He has created according to His ways. "He is Allah, the Creator, the Shaper out of naughts, the Fashioner. His are the most beautiful names" (Qur'an 59:24). He is the Sustainer of the universe. God has created man and kindly provided for him. Concerning the creation of man, the Qur'an says, He it is Who created you from dust, then from a drop (of seed) then from a clot, then bringeth you forth as a child, then (ordaineth) that ye attain full strength and afterward that ye become old menthough some among you die beforeand that ye reach an appointed term, that haply ye may understand (Qur'an 40:6768).
