Uniqueness of the Essence of Allah

2. Allah, Glory be to Him, is on His throne, mounting it in the manner which suits His Majesty, as He described Himself in seven different ayat (verses) (2)


2 Qur'an 7.54, 10.3, 13.2, 20.5, 25.59, 32.4, 57.4.

3. Allah is "the First", before Whom there is none, and "the Last" after Whom there is none, and "the Predominant" above Whom there is none, and "the Internal" nearer than Whom there is none, (3) and all of His attributes are ever eternal, with neither a beginning nor an end.


3 Qur'an 57.3

4. The essence of Allah, the Exalted does not resemble that of any of His creatures, as verified in the ayah: "There is none like unto Him, and He is the Hearer the Seer." (4). He is the One, the Sole, the Indivisible. He is the Lord without Whom no affairs are accomplished and to Whom Lordship ultimately pertains. He neither begets nor is begotten. There is none equal to Him. (5)


4 Qur'an 42.11
5 cf. Qur'an 112

5. Allah never indwells in any of his creatures nor do they indwell in Him. All other than Him are created by His ordinance and are subservient to His will.
