He has made revelations of Himself and made it clear since the beginning of time as to His true Nature, His Oneness, His Uniqueness as God. That He has no associates nor a family that He has been attributed to by unscrupulous people and let it be known to mankind about the truth.

The Message of Truth is the key to salvation and it is for this reason why He has sent His five dominant prophets to the world from Abraham, Moses, David, Jesus Christ and Muhammad (Peace be upon them) to serve them as a reminder and a warner to mankind for the follies of men deviating from God’s message and the punishment that awaits for them if they don’t mend their ways.
