1- Who is Allah?

4 Mar

قُلْ هُوَ اللَّهُ أَحَدٌ

Say, “He is Allah, Ahad,

  • The ayah would be complete with say, “Allah is Ahad.” He shows the greatness of Allah, as He has been known throughout human history; imagine someone who is so famous that you don’t need to say their name.
  • An opinion about the origin of the Majestic Name is that it is from a verb: Aliha is used for a thirsty child, desperately seeking the mother’s milk. اله-Ilah is The One whom people turn to in desperation.
  • The verb derived from Ahad implies the one who is distinct; his origin, lineage and tribe are unknown. This is befitting Allah as He alone has no beginning.

Ibn Kathir: This ayah means, He is the One, the Singular, Who has no peer, no assistant, no rival, no equal and none comparable to Him.
