Compiled Verses from Qur'an on specific subjects: Allah - the Only God

Whenever, the Muslims use the word Allah to address the One True Monotheistic God, non-Muslims instantly believe that "Allah of Muslims" is something different from the Lord, the Creator of the universe, revered as such since Adam appeared as the first human on this earth. Rather the word Allah is mocked by them for they think Muhammad (Prophet Muhammad ﷺ) coined this word and is the same Divine authority as was worshipped by the idolaters and disbeliever before advent of Islam. Some even call Allah as the Moon God Allah and so many other names.

No matter how non-Muslims perceive Allah and interpret the Arabic translation of God, the fact remains that Allah is the same Lord worshipped by all revered prophets of Allah before Prophet Muhammad ﷺ, and as mentioned in all Divine Scriptures (that is Psalms, Torah and Bible, besides Qur'an). However, there is one major difference between God of Muslims and God of most the Christians. While the God of Christians is three (that is the Father, son and the holy ghost), the God or Allah of Muslims is one True God without any associates or partners. Many Christians have now started to understand the reality and everyday many Christians around the world are entering in the fold of Islam by taking Shahada.

Hereinunder are some clarifications about Allah and God:
The Arabic word Allah literally means “The God”. Believers in Islam understand Allah to be the proper name for the Creator as found in the Qur’an. The name Allah is analogous to Eloh, a Semitic term found in the divine scriptures revealed to Muhammad’s predecessors Moses and Jesus (may peace be upon them all).

The use of the term Allah is not confined to believers in Islam alone — Arabic-speaking Christians and Jews also use Allah in reference to God, demonstrating thereby that followers of Islam, Christianity, and Judaism believe in a common monotheistic Creator, a fact that many people are surprised to learn.

Muslims believe that God has no partners or associates who share in His divinity or authority and that God is transcendent, unlike His creations, and thus has no physical form. Nor is God believed to exist in (or be represented by) any material object. A number of divine attributes or “names,” which serve to describe God, are found in the Qur’an (link given below). [1]

We have already shared a number of verses from Qur'an on Allah, the Only God. Herein under we have combined all these posts to serve as a ready reckoner. However, we recommend our readers to first read the following post and attributes of Allah already posted by us to really understand Allah and His countless attributes:
The Qur’an, the divinely-revealed scripture of Islam, contains numerous verses describing the nature of God. The role of human beings as creations of God upon the earth and their relationship with God are also discussed extensively in this sacred text. You may now consult following verses from Qur'an which are about Allah and Faith in Him, beside the connection between Allah and His servants:
We will keep adding more verses so as to make this collection wholesome.

May Allāh (سبحانه و تعالى‎) help us understand Qur'ān and follow the Sunnah of Prophet Muhammad ﷺ, which is embodiment of commandments of Allah contained in the Qur'ān. May Allah help us to be like the ones He loves and let our lives be lived helping others and not making others' lives miserable or unlivable. May all our wrong doings, whether intentional or unintentional, be forgiven before the angel of death knocks on our door. 
وَمَا عَلَيۡنَاۤ اِلَّا الۡبَلٰغُ الۡمُبِيۡنُ‏ 
(36:17) and our duty is no more than to clearly convey the Message.”
That is Our duty is only to convey to you the message that Allah has entrusted us with. Then it is for you to accept it or reject it. We have not been made responsible for making you accept it forcibly, and if you do not accept it, we shall not be seized in consequence of your disbelief, you will yourselves be answerable for your actions on Day of Resurrection.

Reading the Qur'ān should be a daily obligation of a Muslim - Reading it with translation will make it meaningful. But reading its Exegesis / Tafsir will make you understand it fully. It will also help the Muslims to have grasp over social issues and their answers discussed in the Qur'an and other matter related to inter faith so that they are able to discuss issues with non-Muslims with authority based on refences from Qur'an.

May Allah forgive me if my posts ever imply a piety far greater than I possess. I am most in need of guidance.

Note: When we mention God in our posts, we mean One True God, we call Allah in Islam, with no associates. Allah is the Sole Creator of all things, and that Allah is all-powerful and all-knowing. Allah has no offspring, no race, no gender, no body, and is unaffected by the characteristics of human life.
