A Universal Message Through the Logo:

God is One


You have probably noticed the logo on the left in the previous issues of this newsletter. Many of our readers were wondering where this logo came from and what it is all about. We will break down the logo so that it will be clear to everybody what each element of the logo means. (Images on the left side).


Allah. (The word “God” is Arabic)

Waahed. (The word “One” in Arabic)


God is One.

Khoda. (The word “God” in Farsi)

As we know, the gematrical value of the word “Waahed” adds up to 19.Therefore, the number 19 signifies that God is One. It is the foundation upon which the Quran’s mathematical structure is built.

The logo was designed by our brother Abdolhay Parnian from Phoniex, Arizona. Abdolhay said that his initial aim was to give the message “God is One” ( in Arabic Allah Wahd ). However, it was God’s will that it turned out to look like Ka’bah, the Sacred Masjid. The number 19 appeared in the logo as a result of writing “One” in Arabic ( ). The letter “ ” looks like the number 9, and letter “١” looks like the number 1.

The logo carries the message of God is One in three languages: English, Arabic and Farsi. In addition, the same message is given in the language of mathematics.

“Mathematics is the language in which God wrote the universe.” Galileo (1564-1642 AD)

“He (God) has counted the number of all things.” 72:28

“Your God is one god; there is no god but He, Most Gracious, Most Merciful.” 2:163

Laa elaaha ella Allah:

the Correct “Shahadah”

The correct Shahdah (The declaration of Faith) as stated in the Quran by our Creator Himself, and practiced by the angels and those who possess knowledge is “Laa elaaha ella Allah” (There is no god except Allah):

God bears witness that there is no God except He, and so do the angels and those who possess knowledge. Truthfully and equitably, He is the absolute god. There is no god but He, the Almighty, Most Wise. [3:18]

On the other hand, the corrupted “Muslim” scholars cannot accept the Quranic fact that the correct Shahadah is “Laa elaaha ella Allah” without the statement “Muhammad rasool Allah” (Muhammad is God’s messenger).

Muhammad was God’s messenger. The Quran was revealed through Him. He strove with his life to establish the truth that came with the Quran. He fought against the idol worshipers and falsehood. He upheld the Quran alone and followed God’s commandments as long as he lived. He has been with God for the past 14 centuries, since he passed away.

Mentioning the name of Muhammad, or any other saint, messenger, or prophet, along with God is a sign of disbelief in the Hereafter as stated in the Quran:

When God alone is mentioned, the hearts of those who do not believe in the Hereafter shrink with aversion. But when others are mentioned beside Him, they become satisfied. [39:45]

Anyone who disbelieves in God and His messenger should follow His commandments that came through the messenger. There is no where in the Quran that God commands us to say “Laa elaaha ella Allah Muhammad rasool Allah.” The prophet Muhammad himself never uttered such a statement. The believers who believed in the prophet and supported him in his life time were never asked to utter such a statement. As a matter of fact, there is only one place in the Quran where people bear witness that Muhammad is a messenger of God. Ironically, these people are the hypocrites:

When the hypocrites come to you, they say “We bear witness that you are the messenger of God.” God knows that you are His messenger, and God bears witness that the hypocrites are liars. [63:1]

No messenger would ask anyone to mention his name beside God. No messenger would ask anyone to praise him beside God, against God’s commandment. Absolutely, all praise belongs to God, and God alone. When will the “Muslim” masses wake up and realize that they have been duped by the so called Islamic scholars for centuries into practicing something never authorized by God and His messenger? Is God not enough for us?

He is the one God; there is no other god beside Him. To Him belongs all praise in this first life, and in the Hereafter. All judgment belongs with Him, and to Him you will be returned. [28:70]
