Was Allah Ever Born?
Was Allah ever born?
A lot of people, Not Muslims, ask such questions “was Allah ever born?” According to the bible: “NO”, According to the Old Testament and the New Testament “NO”, according to the Quran “NO”. Allah is eternal; He is without beginning and without end. And it is also in the old language called “Alpha and Omega” which means the beginning and the end. He is without beginning and without end. He is eternal and there is nothing like Him. And Allah said the same thing in the Quran that He is Al-Awwal Wal-Akhir (the first and the last). He is always and eternal. And there is one word “As-Samad” which is one of His names which is eternal… so, Allah is without beginning and without end, He always was and always will be.
According to the bible “God is not a man nor is He the son of man.” If you read that in the book of Numbers, chapter 23 verse 19, you read it again in the Quran in chapter 112 “Al-Ikhlas”. It says “Lam Yalid Wa Lam Yulad, Wa Lam Yakun Lahu Kufuwan Ahad” (He is not the son of anything, not the father of anything and there is nothing that compares to Him because He is “Ahad”) which means One, and uniquely One and nothing else like Him. Good question! Thank you!
