INTRODUCTION
(Say: He is Allah, the One and Only; Allah, the Eternal, Absolute; He begetteth not, nor is He begotten; and there isnone like unto Him)
(Holy Quran, 112: 1- 4)
 (Christ the son of Mary was no more than an apostle; many  were the apostles that passed away before him. His mother was a woman of truth. They had both to eat their (daily)food. See how Allah doth make His signs clear to them; yetsee in what ways they are deluded away from the truth!)
(Holy Quran, 5: 75)
 (He was no more than a servant: We granted Our favour tohim, and We made him an example to the Children of Israel.)
(Holy Quran, 43: 59)
(They say, "((Allah)) Most Gracious has begotten a son!"Indeed ye have put forth a thing most monstrous! At it theskies are ready to burst, the earth to split asunder, and themountains to fall down in utter ruin, That they shouldinvoke a son for ((Allah)) Most Gracious. For it is notconsonant with the majesty of ((Allah)) Most Gracious thatHe should beget a son. Not one of the beings in the heavensand the earth but must come to ((Allah)) Most Gracious asa servant. He does take an account of them (all), and hathnumbered them (all) exactly. And everyone of them willcome to Him singly on the Day of Judgment.)
(Holy Quran,19: 88 -95)These noble verses have summarized the Muslim’s concept, faithand belief in Allah

- Muslims prefer using the name “Allah”, which is one of many other beautiful names and it is GodAlmighty’s greatest name, instead of the English word “God”. The word “Allah” is pure and uniqueunlike the English word “God”, which can be used in many forms. If we add ‘s’ to the word “God” itbecomes “Gods”, that is a plural of God. Allah is one and singular, there is no plural of Allah. If we add‘dess’ to the word ‘God’, it becomes ‘Goddess’, that is a female God. There is nothing like male Allah orfemale Allah. (taken from: “The Concept of God in Major Religions”, Dr. Zakir Abdul Kareem, pp 18)(Added by the proofreader)

- Muslims do not mention the name of Allah without glorification. The letters “S.W” are contractions of the two Arabic words “Sobhanahu Wataala”, which means,
Glory to Him! He is high above all 
(HolyQuran 17:43). The English meaning of these two words is from the “Meaning of the Holy Quran byAbdullah Yusof Ali”. Therefore, in this book I will use the words “Allah (S.W)” when referring to GodAlmighty, except for excerpts and quotations.(Added by the proofreader)
