"by the grace of God" in Arabic
Just what is Mercy? Just what is Grace? Understanding these terms is imperative to understanding God. Grace is an elusive word in the Quran. In reading the references to this term the Quran provides little in terms of consistency or answers as to what is the Grace of Allah. It remains a mystery. Even under the name Allah.
On the authority of Ibn Abbas may Allah be pleased with him , from the Messenger of Allah peace and blessings of Allah be upon him , from what he has related from his Lord:. And if he intended to perform it and then did perform it, then Allah writes it down with Himself as from ten good deeds up to seven hundred times, up to many times multiplied.

Christianity, Judaism, and Islam are all considered monotheistic faiths, but for Islam, the principle of monotheism exists to an extreme degree. For Muslims, even the Christian principle of the Holy Trinity is seen as a detraction from the essential "oneness" of God. Of all of the articles of faith in Islam, the most fundamental is a strict monotheism. The Arabic term Tawhid is used to describe this belief in the absolute Oneness of God. Tawhid comes from an Arabic word meaning "unification" or "oneness"—it is a complex term with many depths of meaning in Islam. Muslims believe, above all else, that Allah , or God, is the sole divine deity, who does not share his divinity with other partners.

Indeed, Allah alone is worthy of worship and supplication. He alone should be invoked in times of hope and fear. Offering salah prayer , vows, sacrifices and all other forms of Ibadah must solely be devoted to Allah alone. Thus, it is clear that what the ignorant do, such as making dua supplication , fearing, hoping and offering sacrifices and vows to the dead, are acts of major shirk associating others with Allah in His divinity or worship that go against the testimony of faith: La ilaha illaAllah There is no God but Allah. It is also evident that whoever denies the Last Day, Resurrection, Jannah paradise , and Hellfire is truly a disbeliever who disbelieves in Allah and His deen. The atheists commit kufr and deviation as much as those who worship others beside Allah and ascribe partners to Him, including worshipers of graves, idols, prophets, righteous people, stars, the sun, the moon, etc. He brings the night as a cover over the day, seeking it rapidly, and He created the sun, the moon, the stars subjected to His Command.
