'..Call upon God, or call upon the Merciful; whichsoever you call upon, to Him belong the Names Most Beautiful....' Quran 17:110

'According to Abrahamic Scriptures, God has created man in the image of Himself. He is The One True God, Our Creator and Source of Life- and to Him belong the Most Beautiful Names and Attributes. According to Scripture, man has been granted 'freewill' and has the ability therefore to choose what he or she believes. This is a given right to all humans. Man therefore has the ability (which might vary from individual to individual) according to the use of his mind and heart, through his or her perception of reality and life, and intellect and reason, to establish a relationship with others through knowing and understanding how to incorporate His Attributes into his or her own life. Hence through gaining wisdom and seeking truth with sincerity of the honest heart and reflecting on and incorporating those attributes through our own experiences and our experiences with each other, we are able to draw closer to 'Knowing' Him and therefore living in 'Peace' within ourselves and one another. According to Scripture: without having a good relationship with our Creator, we are unable to establish good relationships with each other- because all the attributes which enable us to have better relationships with one another depend on 'righteousness' and the ability to judge 'right' from 'wrong.' In order to be able to 'treat one another how we ourselves want to be treated' the Scriptures invite us to taking responsibility of our lives according to our abilities, and incorporating the concepts of 'peace, loving kindness, truth, honesty, integrity, humility, trust, justice, respect, tolerance, sacrifice, forgiveness, joy, gratitude, perseverance and righteousness' into our lives. The Abrahamic description of God through Scriptures passed down through 'prophets and Messengers' is that He is the Source of Life, The Source of Creation, The Source of Truth, The Source of Wisdom, The Source of All-Knowledge, The Source of Light, The Source of Love, The Source of Mercy, The Source of Forgiveness, and Source of all that is 'Good' and all that exists. The Scriptures invite mankind to turn to their Source of Life and to 'Surrender' to His 'Divine 'Will' in order to attain Peace and Wisdom and Life, The One True God, and to seek help in prayer and acts of 'sacrifice' in order for man to be 'saved' from the evil and destruction that can result from man's own 'free-will;' by taking responsibility for our speech and behaviour according to the best of our abilities and potential.

( Based on reflections and understanding of Dr Lale Tuncer- May He increase us in knowledge and wisdom, help us to seek truth, help us to and give us the ability to judge 'right' from 'wrong' to the best of our abilities, and help us to fulfil our potentials as humanity according to His Divine Will. Amen)
