Pre-reading questions:
1. What is this ‘Just One Message’?
2. What does the Bible say about it?
3. What does the Qur’an say about it?
4. What is your opinion about it?
5
The true God is only ONE.
Worship Him ALONE and
keep His commandments.

Straight to the point
After the creation of Adam, just one
original message has been repeatedly
delivered to mankind throughout the
history of humanity.

Thus, to remind people about it and bring
them back on track, many prophets and
messengers including Adam, Noah,
Abraham, Moses, Jesus, and Muhammad
were sent by the only true God to convey
this message:
6
The True God, The Creator sent: to convey:
--------- Adam God is One
--------- Noah God is One
--------- Abraham God is One
--------- Moses God is One
--------- Jesus God is One
--------- Muhammad God is One
7
God sent these major prophets as
well as many other prophets and
messengers to accomplish several tasks
and missions, some of which are:
1) To receive guidance from God and
deliver it to people.
2) To convey the message that God is One.
3) To be role models to their people.
4) To instruct their people to fear God
and keep His commandments.
5) To teach their followers important
religious and moral tenets and worldly
matters.
6) To guide those who deviated, disobeyed
God, or worshipped other gods or idols.
8
7) To tell people about their final
destination (the Last Day) and what leads
to Paradise or Hellfire.
It is the same God who created
and sent those prophets and messengers.

He is the Creator of all humans, all
animals, and all objects. It is this ONE
TRUE GOD who created the whole
universe (including nature) and all it
contains. He is the Creator of life, death,
and life after death.

The Oneness of this true God, the
Creator, is clearly evident and easily
traceable in the holy scriptures of the
Jews, Christians, Muslims, and others.
9
Studying the concept of God in the
Bible and the Qur’an sincerely and
objectively, a sincere seeker of the truth
would be able to discern the unique
qualities belonging to the true God only.

Some of the qualities that
distinguish this only true God from
others who claim to be God are:

_ This true God is Creator, not created.
_ This true God is ONE, not three or
more! He has no partners nor equals.
_ This one true God is invisible; no one
can see Him in this life. He is not
physically manifested or incarnated in
other forms.
10
_ This one true God is eternal; He does
not die or change.
_ This one true God is not in need of
anyone like a mother, a wife, or a son;
or anything like food, drink, or help.
But others are in need of Him.
_ This one true God is unique in His
attributes; no one is like Him. No
human or animal descriptions can be
attributed to Him.
We can use these criteria and
qualities (as well as other ones belonging
to Him alone) in examining and rejecting
any claims of being God.
11
Some Christians might
wonder, “It is obvious
that God is one. We
believe in one God.

So, what is the point?”
Now let me turn to discuss the one
message mentioned above and cite some
of the Biblical and Qur’anic verses
confirming the Oneness of God.

But before that, I would like to
share with you this thought:
However, based on a great deal
of reading and studying materials on
12
Christianity and dialogues with many
Christians, I came to understand that
they perceive this one God to include:
1- God the Father.
2- God the Son.
3- God the Holy Spirit.

So, based on common sense and
simple logic, a sincere and honest seeker
of the truth could reason
:
_ What do you mean by saying that
GOD is ONE, while you refer to
THREE GODS?
_ Is God ONE in THREE or THREE
in ONE (1 in 3 or 3 in 1)?!
13
In addition to that, and according
to Christian dogmas, these three “Gods”
have different identities, images, roles,
and functions
:
1. God the Father = the Creator.
2. God the Son = the Savior.
3. God the Holy Spirit= the Counselor.

By the way, if Jesus, God the Son
(or Son of God) is really God or part of
the one God, doesn’t this contradict what
the Bible itself reports that no one can
see God, nor hear His voice?

The Bible states:
14
_ YOU HAVE NEVER HEARD HIS
VOICE NOR SEEN HIS FACE.
(John 5: 37)

_ NO ONE HAS EVER SEEN HIM.
AND NO ONE CAN SEE HIM.
(1 Timothy 6: 16)

_ NO ONE CAN SEE ME AND
STAY ALIVE. (Exodus 33: 20)

Based on these and other Biblical
texts, I sincerely and honestly ask: “How
can we reconcile the dogma that Jesus is
God and the Biblical testimony that no
one has ever seen God, nor heard His
voice?”
15
So, what is the truth?
Please re-read the verse
and think about it!

Didn’t the Jews at his time, his
family, and his followers SEE Jesus
(God the Son, as some believe!) and
HEAR his voice?

Is there any secret or hidden purpose
concerning the truth about God
?
In the Bible, the true God
emphatically testifies, “I am the Lord,
and there is no other god. I have not
spoken in secret or kept my purpose
hidden… I am the Lord, and I speak the
truth; I make known what is right.”
(Isaiah 45: 19)

To be as objective as possible,
I cite the verses without any comment.
Please read the following verses
CAREFULLY, CRITICALLY And
WITHOUT ANY PRECONCEPTIONS.

Now, let us take off on a journey
of seeking the truth about the one true
God in the Bible and the Qur’an.

At the end of this journey and after
your critical, sincere, honest, and
thoughtful reading of this booklet and
particularly the verses cited below, I
would like to know your reactions or
views.
17
The One True God in the Bible
(The Old Testament):

_ Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God is
one Lord. (Deuteronomy 6: 4)

_ Has not the One God made and
sustained for us the spirit of life?
(Malachi 2: 15)

_ You may know and believe Me and
understand that I am He. Before Me
no god was formed, nor shall there
be any after Me. I, I am the Lord,
and besides Me there is no Savior.
(Isaiah 43: 10-11)
18
Can you think of other similar ones?
_ I am the first and I am the last;
besides Me there is no god. Who is
like Me? (Isaiah 44: 6)

_ And there is no other god besides
Me, a righteous God and a Savior;
there is none besides Me. Turn to Me
and be saved…To Me every knee
shall bow. (Isaiah 45: 21-23)

THESE ARE JUST SOME VERSES
FROM THE OLD TESTAMENT.
19
The One True God in the Bible
(The New Testament):

_ One came and said unto him, Good
Master, what good thing shall I do,
that I may have eternal life? And he
(Jesus) said unto him, Why callest
thou me good? There is none good
but one, that is, God. (Matthew 19: 16-17,
in King James Version)

_ Now this is life eternal, that they
know you, the only true God, and
Jesus Christ, whom you have sent.
(John 17: 3)
20
Can you recall other
verses confirming that
GOD IS ONLY ONE?

(NOT THREE!)
_ Worship the Lord your God, and
serve Him only. (Matthew 4: 10)

_ Hear O Israel: The Lord our God is
One Lord. (Mark 12: 29)

_ For there is one God and there is one
mediator between God and men, the
man Christ Jesus. (1Timothy 2: 5)
21
The One True God in the Qur’an
_ Say: He is Allah, the One; Allah, the
Eternal, Absolute; He begets not, nor
is He begotten; and there is none like
unto Him. (112: 1-4)

_ There is no god but I; so worship
Me. (21: 25)

_ They disbelieve who say: Allah (God)
is one of three, for there is no god
except One God. If they desist not
from their word (of blasphemy),
verily, a grievous chastisement will
befall the disbelievers among them.
(5: 73)
22
Indeed, this message concerning
the Oneness of God (i.e.,
Tawheed in Arabic) is the
essential theme of the Qur’an.

_ Can there be another god besides
Allah (God)? Nay, most of them
know not. (27: 61)

_ Can there be another god besides
Allah (God)? High is Allah above
what they associate with Him. (27: 63)

_ Can there be another god besides
Allah (God)? Say, ‘Bring forth your
proof, if ye are telling the truth!’
(27: 64)
23
Conclusions
These verses as well as hundreds
of similar pieces of evidence in the Bible
and the Qur’an confirm this one, eternal
message that the true God is only ONE.

“Turn to me now and be saved, people
all over the world! I AM THE ONLY
GOD THERE IS.” (Isaiah 45: 22)

Not only does the Bible affirm that
God is only ONE, but it also reveals that
the true God, the Creator, is the only
Savior.

“Before Me no god was formed,
nor shall there be any after Me. I, I am
the Lord, and besides Me there is no
Savior.” (Isaiah 43:10-11)
24
So, according to this affirmation,
all other supposed gods or deities like
Jesus, the Holy Spirit, Brahma,
Vishnu, Shiva, Krishna, or Buddha are
neither gods nor manifestations of the
ONE TRUE GOD.

It was because of such false beliefs
that after the Jews worshipped other
gods, “the Lord’s anger burned against
them.” (Numbers 25: 3) Likewise, Moses
destroyed the golden calf.

On the other hand, the Essenes, an
early Christian unitarian community,
endured torture and persecution because
they refused to exchange Jesus’
monotheistic teachings for the Pauline
innovation of the trinity.
25
To sum up, all God’s prophets
including Adam, Noah, Abraham,
Moses, Jesus, and Muhammad were sent
by the same God, the Creator, to convey
the same message:

The true God is only ONE. Worship
Him ALONE and keep His
commandments.

And since those prophets and
messengers preached the same one
message, their religion must be the
same one! So, what is the religion of
those prophets and messengers?

Submission to the will of God is
the essence of the message of those
prophets. This word ‘SUBMISSION’
means ‘ISLAM’ in Arabic.
26
The Qur’an does confirm that
‘Islam’ is the true religion of all God’s
prophets and messengers. This
Qur’anic fact is also traceable in the
Bible itself! And this is what will be discussed
in the upcoming booklet, God willing!

Ultimately, to attain salvation, we
must receive and believe in the abovementioned
message willingly and wholeheartedly.

Nevertheless, doing this
is not enough! We must also believe in
all God’s true prophets (including
Prophet Muhammad) and follow their
true guidance and teachings. This is the
gateway to a happy, eternal life!
27
So, if you are a sincere seeker of
truth and a lover of salvation, you might
like to consider this NOW, before it is
too late!

BEFORE DEATH! It can be
soon! Who knows?
One more thing…
28
Those who are sincere,
honest, serious, objective, and
open-minded in seeking the
truth, and after thinking
critically about this one
message, they may ask
questions like:
A final thought!
So, what is the truth?
What can I do?
29
I testify that there is no god worthy
of worship but the One true God
(Allah) and that Muhammad is the
messenger of God (Allah).

Yes, you can do it!
You CAN sincerely believe in your only
true God (Allah), believe in His last
messenger, and utter the following:
_ This testimony is the first step
on the way to eternal life and the
real key to the gate of Paradise.

If you decide to take this way; you can contact
your Muslim friend, the nearest Islamic center, or
me (I will be very happy to help).
