God Is One

Updated: Jan 12, 2023

A new bi-weekly series, in which excerpts are presented from the book, Introduction to the Study of The Holy Quran. A highly recommended introduction to Islam. Author of said book, Hazrat Mirza Bashiruddin Mahmud Ahmad, second successor of Promised Messiah (as)


The world is far advanced now. We do not need to labour over the point that if

the world has a Maker, He is and can only be one Maker. The God of Israel, the God

of the Hindus, the God of China and the God of Iran are not different. Nor is the

God of Arabia, of Afghanistan and of Europe different. Nor is the God of the

Mongols and the God of the Semites different. God is one, even as the law to which

the world is subject is one law, and the system which links one part of it to another is

one system. Science builds itself on the belief that all natural and mechanical changes

are expressions of one law. The world has one principle—motion, as the materialistic

philosophers assert. Or, it has one Maker. If this is true, expressions like the God of

Israel, the God of the Arabs, the God of the Hindus, are meaningless. But if God is

one, why should we have so many different religions? Were they the product of the

human brain? Was it because of this that every nation and every people worshipped

its own God? If these religions were not a human product, why and how came this

division between religion and religion? If ever there was reason for this division, was

it proper that the division should continue?


Will be continued...
