Allah as one God - Tawhid

The Qur'an contains guidance for Muslims on the nature of Allah, and how to live a good life that pleases him.

Allah witnesses that there is no deity except Him, and [so do] the angels and those of knowledge - [that He is] maintaining the creation in justice. There is no deity except Him, the Exalted, in Might, the Wise.Qur'an 3:18

Key beliefs about God include:

  • Tawhid - the belief in the oneness and unity of Allah as expressed in the first of the Five Pillars of Islam, the Shahadah. Belief in this oneness or unity of Allah is an essential aspect of Islam.
  • Monotheism - Muslims believe in only one God, Allah.
Islam is a monotheistic religion. A Muslim should live a life in submission to the will of Allah in all things.
