God is One, God is an eternal and timeless Reality, everything is from Him, but He is not from anything, He is the Creator of everything, He is the Sustainer of the whole universe.

“Say (O Muhammad!): “He is Allah, the One, Allah is the Self-Sufficient, Master, Whom all creatures need, He begets not, nor was He begotten, and there is none co-equal or comparable unto Him.” (Al-Ikhlas 112:1-4)

This Surah presents a clear and lucid concept about Allah the Almighty, the concept that is far from those impurities, defects and stains that were added to the faith of Monotheism across the human history. Allah is not many, He is only One, everything needs Him, He needs nothing, He is Master of all things by Himself, He was not begotten and He does not beget. He is too exalted to beget or to be begotten. He is the Eternal and Absolute. No one and nothing is equal to Him in any sense.

This verifies the invalidity of all sorts of godhood attributed to human beings, stone, animal, river, sun, moon, earth, fire etc. The above-mentioned facts clarify the falsehood of idolatry, the worship of cows, the worship of vulva and private parts of a male.2 Even a common person can compare between the sublime and pure principles of the Islamic faith and the descriptions and
attributes of God and His divinity in the Hindu scriptures. I think that even an ordinary individual does not need long thinking and deep knowledge to distinguish between the purity of the Islamic faith and the imperfections and serious flaws in the doctrines of other than Islam about Allah the Almighty and His attributes.
This life is an exam and test, it is only seventy or eighty years and then everyone will die and would be held accountable for their choice and the argument would be proved against you and the chance would be missed forever.
