There is only one God with no associate or partner. All that happened in the past, is happening now and is going to happen in the future is by the will of God.
Angels are created from light and execute the commands of God without question.
The Books of God:
These include the Torah, the Psalms of David, The Gospel revealed to Jesus and the Qur’ān.
Prophets of God:
There were thousands of prophets who preached God’s message. Prophet Muhammad was the last prophet for all humanity and completed the message of God.
Day of Judgment:
On this day, all mankind will be raised back to life and judged by God. Those whose good deeds outweigh their bad deeds will be allowed to enter Paradise and those whose bad deeds outweigh their good deeds will be condemned to Hell except whom God has mercy on.
God’s predestination of all things and events and His Decree. Nothing in the universe can occur without the knowledge of God. Whatever He desires, it occurs and whatever He does not desire, it doesn’t occur. There is no power or any movement except by God.
Life after Death:
The eternal life in Paradise where one will be rewarded for living a righteous life on Earth, or the fire of Hell where one will be punished for the evil that one committed.
