The Ninety Nine Attributes of Allah
Islam belongs to the monotheistic religions, a "member" in the three major faiths of the world trailing Christianity and Judaism where the concept of God stands at the core of the faith. Godhead is the most important article of faith in these religions which, from our viewpoint, are actually one and the same: The Almighty revealed His truth to the Israelites, so it was called Judaism, then He revealed it to Christ and his followers, so it was called Christianity. But when He revealed it to Muhammed, some people called it "Muhammedanism" whereas those who followed Muhammed call themselves and would like others to call them "Muslims," people who surrender to the will of the Almighty. The Jews surrendered to His will when they followed Moses in their exodus, and the Disciples followed Jesus and recorded his words, thus surrendering to the will of God. The truth which God revealed to the Jews then to the Christians then to Muslims is one and the same; people, not He, gave it labels. An in-depth study of these three religions will reveal the similarities between them simply because they all came from one and the same God Who does not have but one tongue, one word, one truth, one Heaven, one Hell, one straight path to Him, one human family... This is the absolute truth, yet not many people believe in it; on the contrary, many people reject it outright and claim that they, and only they, know the truth and abide by it, thus excommunicating all others.
