One of the most key concepts of Islam is the concept of monotheism. The Koran insists more then it insists on anything else is that Allah is one Lord, he is the sole God, the only creator of the universe and there is no one who in anyway can be compared to him. In the concept of monotheism Koran has only one inflexible and stringent view:
“Say: He is Allah, the One and Only; Allah, the Eternal, Absolute; He begetteth not, nor is He begotten; And there is none like unto Him”. (Surah 112. The Unity, Sincerity, Oneness of Allah Islam101.com)
While this verse stresses on his unity and oneness the opening verses of the Koran stress on his unity and on the importance of depending only on him.
“In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful. Praise be to Allah, the Cherisher and Sustainer of the worlds; Most Gracious, Most Merciful; Master of the Day of Judgment Thee do we worship, and Thine aid we seek”(Surah 1 The Opening Verse 1-5 Islam101.com)
