Say: "He, Allah, is one. Allah is He on whom all depend. He begets not, nor is He begotten and none is like Him" (Holy Qur-an 114:1-4)

1 A Muslim is one who believes in One God. It is forbidden by Allah (God) for us to believe in or serve anyone other than Himself as a god. He warns us not to set up an equal with Him, as He was the One in the beginning from whom everything had its beginning and will be the One God from which everything will end. He is independent, having no need of anyone’s help, but on the other hand, upon Him we all depend. It is the highest of ignorance for us to choose a God or attempt to make something as an equal to Him. Foolish people all over the earth have been for the past 6,000 years, and still are, trying to make an equal to Allah (God). He has no beginning, nor is there any end of Him. How, O foolish man, can you make an equal for a One? How foolish we make ourselves, serving and worshiping gods other than the One God, Allah.

2 The foolish become rich and highly educated in their way and not in the way of Allah and then begin making and worshiping gods of their own, the work of their own hands -- then comes the end of them as it is of today.

3 It is the fundamental principle of the religion of Islam to believe in Allah, the One God, According to the belief, the teaching and preaching of the prophets of Allah is of One God. Noah, Abraham, Moses, and Jesus -- all believe in One God (Allah). The Christians claim a belief in the above named prophets -- then how do they make Jesus the equal of Allah (God)? The Bible says, and God spoke all these words saying: "I am the Lord, thy God, thou shalt have no other gods before Me. Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of anything that is in the heavens above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth; thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them, for I, the Lord Thy God, am a jealous God."

4 Both Jews and Christians are guilty of setting up rivals to Allah (God). Adam and Eve accepted the guidance of the serpent instead of that of Allah (Gen. 3:6). They made a golden calf and took it for their god and bowed down to it (Exod. 32:4). This was the work of their own hands to guide them and fight their wars. The Christians have made imaginary pictures and statues of wood, silver and gold -- calling them pictures and statues of God. They bow down to pictures and statues alleged to be of Jesus, His mother, and his disciples as though they could see and hear them. They (the Christians) claim sonship to Allah (God) and take the Son to be the equal of the Father, though they say "that they killed the Son." Today they take the weapons of war for their gods and put their trust in the work of their own hands.

5 Muhammad took hold of the best, the belief in one God (Allah), and was successful. Fourteen hundred years after him, we are successful, that is, we who will not set up another god with Allah. The fools who refuse to believe in Allah alone as the One God, if asked who made heaven and earth, most surely would say God and would say God the Son and the Holy Ghost. Then why do they not serve and obey Allah (God)?

6 It is a perfect insult to Allah (God) who made heaven and earth and makes the earth to produce everything for our service and even the sun, moon, and stars -- they serve our needs -- for us to bow down and worship anything other than Allah as a god. The Great Mahdi, Allah in person, who is in our midst today, will put a stop once and forever to the serving and worshiping of other gods besides Himself.

7 It is the devil’s way of bringing the people (so-called Negroes) of Allah (God) in opposition to Him by teaching the people to believe and do just the thing that God forbids. Muhammad did not try making a likeness of God, nor have his followers done that. He and his followers obey the law of (the one God) Allah, while the Jews and the Christians preach it and do otherwise. We are now being brought face to face with Allah (God) for a showdown between Him and that which we have served as God besides Him. The lost and found members of the Asiatic nation are especially warned in the 112th chapter of the Holy Qur-an against the worship of any other god than Allah, for it is Allah in person who has found them among the worshipers of gods other than Allah.
