All praise and thanks are due to Allah (the one and only God), we Praise Him, seek His help and ask Him for forgiveness. As Muslims we bear witness that there is no god worthy of worship except Allah alone, who has no partner, and we bear witness that Muhammad (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) is His servant and messenger.
Allah is the one true god, having no partners, sons or equals. He is the Creator of the universe and all that it contains. His knowledge encompasses all things. He is the Most Merciful and Most Just. He loves to respond to the prayers of the believer when he calls on Him.
From the most noble and loft stations of realisation is to know the Lord, the Glorious, through His perfection, magnificence and beauty:
"To Allah belong the most beautiful and perfect names, so call (invoke) Him by them..."(Quran 7:180)
This is the knowledge passed on to us from our Lord. There is nothing comparable to Allah in any of His attributes. If you were to assume that the whole of His creation was in its most exquisite form, and you were to try and compare their collective and inward beauty to the beauty of the Lord, the Glorious, the comparison would be more ineffectual than a faint torch being held against the blazing disk of the sun.
Did you know that if His veil was lifted, everything that the splendour of His Face fell upon of His creation would be obliterated.
It is sufficient to know of His beauty that to Him belongs nobility, strength and power in its entirety, beneficience and grace in its entirety and knowledge in its entirety.
"There is nothing whatsoever like Him." [Al-Qur'an, Surat-ush-Shooraa (42): 11]
