Excerpt from the booklet:
ISLAM, THE TRUE RELIGION
Praise be to Allah, the Lord of the worlds. May Allah raise the rank of our master Muhammad and his Al and Companions and protect his nation from that which he fears for it.
Everything that exists, except Allah the Creator, is created by Him(1). Allah has full power over every bit of His creation. Allah is not created; He existed always, having His attributes. Allah will never perish, nor will His attributes diminish. The attributes of Allah are uncountable, among which are: He has knowledge of all His creation; He sees the seeable things; and He hears the hearable things. His knowing, seeing and hearing are in no way similar to ours. Allah's Kalam (Speech) is not made up of language or sound, nor does it resemble the speech of man in any way. Allah does not need any of His creation for His existence and He does not resemble any of His creation in any way. This means that Allah is not a man or a woman; He is not "a Father" or "a Mother". Allah does not have a wife, a mother, a father, a son, or a daughter; He has no equal or partner. Allah does not divide into parts. No creation has "a part of Allah " in him, nor can any creation become like Allah. He is the only God.
Allah existed eternally before He created any of the places, such as Paradise, the skies, Earth, or the planets. Hence, we know Allah is now as He was before He created all these places; He does not need any place for His existence. Allah has always known about every part of His creation; there is no thing in His creation which escapes His knowledge or defeats Him. No thing goes against the will of Allah . Both good and evil occur by Allah's will. However, Allah orders humans to do only the good; humans make the choice to obey or disobey Allah. Our ability to do good or evil is given to us by Allah, the Exalted.
