In the name of Allah, the Most Merciful, the Most Kind
Belief in One God is the most important axiom in Islam. The One God, Allah in Arabic, is the Creator of everything. Allah is a living God, the Creator, the Shaper, the Evolver, the Most High, the Exalted, the Perfect. There is none like Him. He has no beginning nor an end. Prophets like Abraham, Moses, Jesus and Muhammad performed miracles by the leave of God. May peace and blessings be on all His prophets. It is Allah Who created Adam without parents and Jesus without a father. God is not in need of any other gods, sons or daughters. He begets not, nor is He begotton. His creatures can call on Allah directly and He listens. It is Allah Who sent His final messenger Muhammad fourteen centuries ago as a mercy for the worlds. Our salvation depends on worship of the One God as taught by Muhammad (s.a.a.w.)
The Holy Quran is filled with verses to help us understand God. The following is a collection of verses which contain or imply the words "It is He Who." Some other verses have been added to retain the context. These verses should serve us well in getting to know Him better. Those who know Arabic can enjoy reading these in Arabic a lot better than any translation can do. That is so not only because the original text is in Arabic, but also that the Arabic verses are the words of God which came to prophet Muhammad through angel Jibrael (Gabriel) (peace be on him).

Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with him) said that: He heard the Prophet (PBUH) said: "There were three men among the Banu Israel, one leper, one bald and one blind. Allah wanted to test them. He therefore, sent to them an angel who came to the leper and asked him what he would like best. He replied: "A good colour, a good skin and to be rid of what makes me loathsome to people". He (the angel) rubbed him and his loathsomeness vanished and he was given a good colour and a good skin. He then asked him what type of property he would like best. The leper replied that he would like camels - [or perhaps he said cattle, for Ishaq (one of the subnarrator of the Hadith) was uncertain, either said: 'Camels,' or: 'Cattle']. He was given a pregnant she-camel. The angel invoked for Allah's Blessing on it.
