Who is ALLAH?

  • Is Allah the god of Muslims?
  • Why are there no pictures or statues or Allah?
  • Allah is referred to as “Him”. Is He human-like?
  • Are there other names for Allah?
  • Who created Allah?
  • Does He have a son?
  • Does Allah have other gods to help Him?
  • Does Allah need a rest day?
  • Is Allah the god of Jesus?
  • If Allah is Compassionate, why is there so much suffering?
  • If Allah is Merciful, then does He forgive all our sins?

The Lord of Creation

Allah is The Lord of all created things in the seen and unseen worlds.
Everything in Creation worships and submits to Him.
The faith of Muslims is Islam. It means submission to the Will of Allah.

No pictures

Allah is beyond the grasp of human vision. He is unlike anything that the human mind can imagine.
Therefore drawing pictures of making statues that represent Him as a human, a semi-human or an animal is unacceptable and considered a major sin in Islam.

Not a guy

If you speak English, you use the words “him” and “she” a lot and it is very easy to give people wrong ideas about God.
The female equivalent for ‘God’ is ‘Goddess’. Some believe that God has female partners. Reducing God to a human family person is unacceptable in Islam.
The Almighty calls Himself “Allah” in the Qur’an.

This Arabic word has no plural and no male or female equivalents.
Oh, by the way, The Almighty is not an old man who posed for Michelangelo!

Attributes of Allah

Some books refer to the “99 names” of Allah. These names are attributes of Allah.
Allah is referred to as Merciful, Just and Compassionate. More than 99 attributes of Allah are mentioned in the Qur’an.

Allah is Eternal

Allah is eternal. He was not created. He existed before He created.
His creations need Him but e doesn’t need them His existence.
Allah does not have a son or assistants. If He needs the help of others, then He would not be self-sufficient and be in need of a Creator.
Nothing is like Him.

The Creator cannot be of the same nature as things He created. His creations have a beginning and an end.
Allah existed before the beginning and will remain after the end.

Eternally vibrant

The notion that The Almighty needed a rest day after creating the heavens and earth is a human innovation and not The Almighty’s view of Himself.It is those who were not involved in Creation things ‘burn out’. Allah is eternally vibrant

The One True God

Allah is the proper noun unique to The One True God Who alone deserves all worship.
He is the God of all Prophets that He chose to convey His message.
Among the well-known Prophets are Noah, Abraham, David, Moses, Jesus and the final Prophet, Muhammad (peace be upon them).

The Compassionate

Our suffering is caused by our failure to adhere to what He has permitted and refrain from what He has prohibited.
There are times when, for example, we cannot explain why bad things happen to good people.
Allah knows best. We must seek His help in prayer.

The Merciful

In the Qur’an. The Almighty states that He will forgive the sins of the Believers who repent sincerely and do not repeat their sins.
Many will say that they too believe in The One True God but their daily lives are infused with idolatrous practices such as wearing talismans and worshipping statues.
The Almighty declares in The Qur’an that He will not forgive the worshipping of false gods.

science for all

The Cell

The cell is one of the most basic units of life. There are millions of different types of cells. There are cells that are organisms onto themselves, such as microscopic amoeba and bacteria cells. And there are cells that only function when part of a larger organism, such as the cells that make up your body. The cell is the smallest unit of life in our bodies. In the body, there are brain cells, skin cells, liver cells, stomach cells, and the list goes on. All of these cells have unique functions and features. And all have some recognizable similarities. All cells have a 'skin', called the plasma membrane, protecting it from the outside environment. The cell membrane regulates the movement of water, nutrients and wastes into and out of the cell. Inside of the cell membrane are the working parts of the cell. At the center of the cell is the cell nucleus. The cell nucleus contains the cell's DNA, the genetic code that coordinates protein synthesis. In addition to the nucleus, there are many organelles inside of the cell - small structures that help carry out the day-to-day operations of the cell. One important cellular organelle is the ribosome. Ribosomes participate in protein synthesis. The transcription phase of protein synthesis takes places in the cell nucleus. After this step is complete, the mRNA leaves the nucleus and travels to the cell's ribosomes, where translation occurs. Another important cellular organelle is the mitochondrion. Mitochondria (many mitochondrion) are often referred to as the power plants of the cell because many of the reactions that produce energy take place in mitochondria. Also important in the life of a cell are the lysosomes. Lysosomes are organelles that contain enzymes that aid in the digestion of nutrient molecules and other materials. Below is a labelled diagram of a cell to help you identify some of these structures.

There are many different types of cells. One major difference in cells occurs between plant cells and animal cells. While both plant and animal cells contain the structures discussed above, plant cells have some additional specialized structures. Many animals have skeletons to give their body structure and support. Plants do not have a skeleton for support and yet plants don't just flop over in a big spongy mess. This is because of a unique cellular structure called the cell wall. The cell wall is a rigid structure outside of the cell membrane composed mainly of the polysaccharide cellulose. As pictured at left, the cell wall gives the plant cell a defined shape which helps support individual parts of plants. In addition to the cell wall, plant cells contain an organelle called the chloroplast. The chloroplast allow plants to harvest energy from sunlight.
