None is the sovereign, sole-owner and controller of all the rights and privileges in the heaven and on the earth but Himself. He is never dependent upon any agency, that he may be subjected to any agency's support to operate the universe.

Monotheism: An Eternal Element

For an instance, if someone says that a particular school has numerous principles and yet it is being managed accurately or says that so and so nation has numberless prime ministers as well as presidents and yet they can arrive at independent conclusions of the national affairs or says that a particular vehicle is being driven by several drivers at a time, shall our conscious accept such above saying by someone? Never, never at all. It is because that our inborn conscious dictates that if such multi-operational situation exists, the fundamental factors of co-operation, co-ordination, planning and management are never possible to be executed resulting into chaos and confusion.

Now, if a small school cannot absorb multi- principal -ship in its management, is it possible that this infinite universe can be mechanized, governed, operated and regularized in its existence by Multiple Gods? Hence, our conscious does dictate that there must be a single God and the existence of multiple Gods is a fact of very much chaos and tumult. Here, the Qur’an, guiding us, dictates that indeed it is the same as your conscious expects. There does exist a single God for all, being the creator, sustainer and cherisher of all. None is worth worshipping but Himself, none is omnipotent at all but himself, none is the knower of secrets at all but Himself, none is the solely independent but Himself and none is the governor (Lord of the lords) but Himself.

None is the sovereign, sole-owner and controller of all the rights and privileges in the heaven and on the earth but Himself. He is never dependent upon any agency, that he may be subjected to any agency's support to operate the universe. None but Himself is from naught to immortality and eternity in His existence. Except Himself, the Lord of the Lords, none else is from naught to immortality and eternity. This omnipotent and great God - Almighty is beyond all deficiencies in Himself nor does He require any requirements at all nor does he have any wife or children at all nor is he the child of anyone.
To attain the pleasure of this God-Almighty one never needs to inject anyone's influence or recommendations even to an atom's degree. He does not assume any human form of existence nor has any other form of existence at all. He is, of course, beyond any carnal and physical needs as we do need, and being beyond our limited conscious to comprehend Him. Then, how is He? Where does He, then, abode or subsist? What form is He in? To raise such questions and to endeavor to locate their answers, both, are futile.

It is the obligation of each of us to live and remain being in the capacity of His slave and servant in the world, nor to prioritize the wishes and commandments of anyone as against that of God-Almighty, nor to bow down in front of anyone but Himself, the lord of the Lords. In sum and substance, this is the real and straightforward fact of faith. (Oneness of God-Almighty).

Singularisam of God is not any element or phenomenon but it is a real and eternal and natural ideology. We do find in all the celestial scriptures one and the same above reflected very fundamental concept of teaching to us. Let's have a glimpse of it as below:-

The Hindus believe that the Vedas are the celestial scriptures. In the Vedas also Singularity of God (Faith) (Iman) has been very emphatically asserted at many citations therein.
As in Rigveda:

(The learned remember the only one real-form God by various names. Being addressed as
‘Indra’ ( Ruler), ‘Mitra’ ( Benefactor ), ‘Varun’ ( The supreme of all), ‘Agrni’ (The Foremost), ‘Divy’ ( The light), ‘Suparna’ ( The Best Conductor), ‘Gurutman’ ( The Great), ‘Yam’ ( The Omni-Controller) and ‘Matarishva’ ( The knower of secrets)
(Rigveda: 1/114/46)

As in Yajurveda:
( None but himself, being the pure and independent natured, God Himself assumes all the names being Agni, ( Fire), Aditya (The Sun), Vayu (Air), Chandrama, ( Light), Shukra (Venus), Bhrahama (Supreme being), Sarva vyapak ( Omnipresent ), Parajapati (Lord, the creator) (Yajurveda: 32/1)

As in Yajurveda:-
(Those worshipping the goddess and deities are as if plunging into the gloom)
(Yajurved: 40/9)

As in Rigveda:-
( Boycott the crores of deities) (Rigveda: 1/4/12/4)


As in Rigveda:-
(None but the God being worth worshipping for the entire mankind of the universe be remembered solemnly by this tone of speech. None but himself, is to shower the rain of pleasure, being the omnipotent, real God and omnipresent as well as the Lord of all powers)
( Rigveda: 6-22-1)
The influence of the version of the Vedas is found even on the Upanishad as well as the other Hindu religious scriptures also to some extent. Let's see certain illustrations thereof as below.....

Vinoba Bhave has composed a book entitled “The Summary of the Qur’an” very labouriously wherein certain promises from Svetasvar Upanishad on Singularity of God have been cited. From among those 17 promises a few are as follow

“Merely one God rules over all.” ( Sve. Upan: 1-10)

“There is merely one God that is omnipresent” ( Sve. Upan:2-16)

“Merely one supreme element is the God of all animals” ( Sve. Upan: 1-3)

“Merely one God has created the heavens and the earth” ( Sve.Upan: 3-3)

“All powers are assembled into that one only” ( Sve.Upan: 4-1)

“That being the God of fire Himself is that of the water” (Sve.Upan: 2-17)
Even in the Srimad Bhagvat Gita as well we find plenty of citations pertaining to the substance of Singularity of God.
You do get obsessed with me, worshipping to me, dedicated to me and be obeisant to me, consequently you will find none but myself to have been prevailed within you.
( Adhyay 9, Rajvidhyarajgruhyog, Slok No. 34)

“Even if the most wicked also, instead of remembering other, remembers me, he be regarded to be the best as he is of the firmest determination.”
( Adhyay 9, Rajvidhyarajgruhyog, Slok No. 3o)

“O, Bharat! thee do submit very solemnly to none but that sovereign Lord, out of his mercy thee would attain climax peace and salvation”
( Adhyay 9, Rajvidhyarajgruhyog, Slok No. 62)

“Those worshipping the Deities attain that, those worshipping the fathers attain that, those worshipping the ghosts attain that and those worshipping me do attain me”
( Adhyay 9, Rajvidhyarajgruhyog, Slok No. 25)


“Those learned conquered by their desires and confined by their nature, having clutched to those regulations get submitted to the other deities. I affirm their faith about the particular form to which they seek to worship solemnly. Having got absorbed into that faith, he hymns that and eventually thereby attains the result created by Myself; but the fruit of that deficient intellectuals are mortal, those worshipping the deities attain that and those worshipping Me do attain Myself”
( Adhyay 7, Gnanvignanyog, Slok No. 20,21,22,23.)

“Leaving all the religions do surrender to myself, I shall salvage you from all the sins, thee don't mourn”
( Adhyay 18th, Moks Sanyas Yog, Salok No. 66)

Above are certain quotations being found in the Hindu religious scriptures apparently pertaining to the Singularity of God,

A well-known Indian philosopher Dr. Radhakrishna writes:


“The religion, prevalent at the time of Gautam Budhdh, bears an outline thereof that there used to prevail a single relation (Transaction) that had already got established between the God and the mankind. On one side, there used to be a faction belonging to Upanishad representing the best and the supreme element of the image of the God whereas on the other there used to be a cluster of numberless Gods even beyond any limit of numbers. At that time, not but all the physical elements of the nature like the trees, the birds, the rocks of the mountains, the rivers, the physical objects and the heavenly galaxies had been regarded to be the part-taker in the might of the God as if the certificate for reinless and uncontrolled feelings had been procured to enthrone any element of the nature on the throne of God-Almighty. Consequently, with the passage of time, when the chaos of these numberless Gods did not stand to be compatible for the approach of the Godly image; the queer, strange and imaginative pictures and ideas of God captured their conscious. It is beyond any doubt that amidst that era of contemplations and schools of thoughts, the Upanishad had already sabotaged the Godly images for all these elements, but these elements of God have remained ingrained on the throne of Godliness in the society”
(Indian Philosophy, Part 1, Page No. 453).

Dr. Jayedrakumar Anadji Yagnik writes: “The Hindu religious scriptures repeatedly speak about one and the same matter that there is only one God and various persons as per their interest assign various names to it and imagine various forms of it”
(The great religions of the world, Page No273, First Edition)

In all the celestial scriptures we find the same imparting to the people. The revered celestial scriptures being ‘The Zabur’ (‘The Gitasastra'), The Tavrat (‘The Old Testament’) and ‘The Ingil’ ( 'The New Testament), however, today they have got victimized to be corrupted and, hence, have lost their original form, yet one finds the citations pertaining to the substance of the singularity of God and faith in one God at numerous places in the above scriptures.
Certain illustrations are as follow:

“Those believing in deities other than Yahova ( God), they shall get more aggrieved”
(Sacred scripture: Gitashashtra, 16-4)
The word Yahova' above
“Thee alone is the God” (Sacred scripture: Gitashashtra, 86-10)

“None else can be the God to thee other than Myself. Thee don't carve out any idol for you. Don't create an image of any object either of the sky above or of the earth below or of the water beneath the earth nor prostate before them nor serve them.”
(The sacred Shastra: The Old Testament: Nisrgaman: 20-4,5)

“O, Israel, Listen: Yahova, being our God, is the only Yahova”
(Sacred Scripture: Old Testament Punnarniyam)

Now coming to the message of the sacred Qur’an, one does without fail come across very very crystal clear and explicit message of the faith ( Oneness of God) itself upon plenty of occasions in it being the peculiarly of only Qur’an itself. So long as the issue of faith (Oneness of God) is concerned in the holy Qur’an it never tends to any degree of compromise at all nor manifests even an atom's level of inaccuracy or tolerance thereof. And even the Non-Muslim brothers are also well aware of the foregoing fact and phenomenon.

Going historically as well as psychologically, it is well revealed that ‘polytheism’, worshipping to deities and goddess is nothing but the product of human being himself that reflects the psychological deficiency and selfish approach of the mankind.
