    This question of who is the creator of something comes to mind about things that seem creatures to us i.e. created beings. When this is not the case, we do not ask for the creator of a thing. For example, when we see a chair made of wood, we ask for its creator, carpenter in this case, because we know that a chair can’t get made from wood by itself. But, if we see a piece of wood randomly put on the ground, we don’t ask for its creator i.e. the carpenter.

    We see the world around us that it has been made and that the whole universe is caught in a web of mathematical and physical laws and the irony is that it can’t explain itself in the sense that from where did these laws come? All this points out the presence of a full conscious being behind its creation but we don’t know anything about it. Hence, certain questions come to our minds; Who created matter? Who put life in the matter? Who put consciousness  in the matter? This all compels us to look for some external source to be the creator of this world.

    On the Other hand, in terms of God, we haven’t seen him. We don’t know whether He is a created being. Hence, the question of a creator is irrelevant in this case. Now, Who really God is? that’s a different domain. Hopes you understand!

    In Islamic tradition, the term “Friend of Allah” (Wali Allah) refers to individuals who are believed to have a close and special relationship with Allah (God). These individuals are often considered to be righteous, pious, and spiritually elevated. While there is no official list of who the Friends of Allah are, the concept is based on Islamic teachings and the Quranic verse (Surah Yunus, 10:62-63) that mentions: “Unquestionably, [for] the allies of Allah there will be no fear concerning them, nor will they grieve. “The Friends of Allah are often characterized by the following qualities:Righteousness: They are known for their piety, devotion to Allah, and adherence to Islamic principles. Spiritual Insight: They possess deep spiritual insight and understanding of religious matters.Humility: They are humble and do not seek recognition or fame for their piety.Acts of Kindness: They are compassionate and engage in acts of charity and kindness toward others.Contentment: They are content with whatever Allah provides and do not covet worldly possessions.Prayer and Worship: They are devout in their worship, including regular prayer and the remembrance of Allah. It’s important to note that the concept of the Friends of Allah is not limited to a specific number of individuals, and their status is not something that can be self-proclaimed. It is believed to be a special honor bestowed by Allah upon those who sincerely devote themselves to Him and lead a life of piety and virtue. The identity of specific individuals regarded as Friends of Allah can vary among different Islamic traditions and Sufi orders, which often have their saints and spiritual leaders recognized for their piety and closeness to Allah.

Christians, on the other hand, believe in the Holy Trinity—Father, Son (Jesus Christ), and Holy Spirit—and follow the teachings of the Bible. While there are similarities in the monotheistic belief in one God, the theological differences between Islam and Christianity are significant.

    The term “Messiah” has significant religious and cultural connotations and can have slightly different meanings depending on the context: In Judaism: In Judaism, the Messiah (or “Mashiach” in Hebrew) is a future, anticipated figure who is expected to be an anointed king and a descendant of King David. The Messiah is believed to bring peace, unite the Jewish people, rebuild the Temple in Jerusalem, and usher in an era of righteousness and justice. In Christianity: In Christianity, the term “Messiah” is often used to refer to Jesus Christ, whom Christians believe to be the promised Savior and anointed one. Christians view Jesus as the fulfillment of the messianic prophecies in the Old Testament and believe that he came to offer salvation and eternal life through his crucifixion and resurrection. In Islam: In Islam, Jesus (known as “Isa” in Arabic) is also referred to as the Messiah (Al-Masih). However, the Islamic concept of the Messiah differs from the Christian view. In Islam, Jesus is a prophet and not considered divine. Muslims believe that Jesus was a messenger of God sent to guide the People of Israel, and he will return in the future as a sign of the Day of Judgment. In a more general sense, the term “Messiah” is often used to describe a chosen, anointed, or expected figure who plays a significant role in the salvation or guidance of a particular religious or cultural community. The specific attributes and expectations associated with the Messiah can vary widely among different belief systems and traditions.
