What is God?

In Islam:

God is the powerful authority of universe as MUSLIM

believe.

In Judaism:

    "font-style:normal;font-weight:400;font-size:14px;font-family:'Open Sans', 'Helvetica Neue', Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif;">

  • God is One. The concept of a dualism (as in Zoroastrianism), an

    independent Satan, multiple gods (polytheism; paganism) or a

    trinity of three in one, are all unimaginable in Judaism. Also, any

    belief that an intermediary between humanity and God should be

    used, whether as necessary or even optional, is considered

    heretical.

  • God is non-physical, indivisible and incomparable. Jewish

    tradition teaches that God is beyond human comprehension; and that

    it is only God's revealed deeds, as He interacts with mankind and

    the world, that we can begin to grasp. His names indicate His

    attributes and the ways in which He relates to us.

  • God is omniscient (He is aware of everything), and infinitely

    wise.

  • God created the universe and all existence, including time and

    space, in a deliberate, purposeful act of benevolent

    Creation.

  • God is the mover of everything. No molecule can move without

    the energy and direction with which God imbues it.

    "line-height:2em;" />

  • God is eternal; and His ways are also eternal. He is not

    capricious, forgetful or fickle.

    "line-height:2em;" />

  • God is just. He rewards good and punishes evil - whether in

    this world or in the afterlife.

  • God is ethical and moral; and He expects us to imitate His

    ways.

  • The God of Israel is the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. He is

    the guide of history, who delivered the Israelites from Egyptian

    slavery.

  • God is the source of law, who gave the Torah to the Israelites

    at Mount Sinai.

  • God is immanent and personal, meaning that he relates to

    humanity and hears our prayers. This is the basis of the Psalms and

    our siddur (prayerbook).
