Three or One?

After having a lovely dinner with my neighbour, we were sipping our tea and chatting about inviting non-Muslims to Islam. He said that he is capable of showing evidences for the existence of Allah when it is asked. However, he gets in trouble when a non-Muslim asks him whether there could be more than one God.

Degrees of Belief

Belief means to accept by heart what was revealed by Allah (SWT) and expressing it with one’s tongue.
