Surah Ikhlas - Qul huwallaahu ahad Allahus samad Lam yalid wa lam yuulad Wa lamyakun lahuuu kufuwan ahad
Say: He is Allah, the One. He is Allah, the Eternal, Who was never born, nor ever gave birth. The One beyond compare.

A third of it is comprised of legal rulings,
A third is comprised of exhortations of promises and warnings,
and a third is comprised of discussing Allah’s names and attributes. (Surah Ikhlas)
This chapter Surah Al-Ikhlas brings together within it those names and attributes.
So what is our Aqidah-belief and what is the brenchmark, as to what we can say or what we shouldn't say or believe about Allah is all in Surah Ikhlas; meaning that 'He is Allah, the Eternal, Who was never born, nor ever gave birth. The One beyond compare', and the last part is what we need to remember, 'The One beyond compare', meaning whatever you try to compare him to, that isn't him simply. And this stops all silly arguments about were is Allah, can Allah lie or not and other silly questions and confusions, Surah lkhas stops all confusions about Allah, with 'The One beyond compare'. So the brenchmark is Allah is 'beyond compare' and that is who Allah is, '..the Eternal, Who was never born, nor ever gave birth.'
Surah Ikhlas mentions two names of Allah which together indicate all the Attributes of perfection. They are not mentioned in any other verse: “al-Ahad” and “al-Samad.” These two names indicate the oneness of the Sacred Being who possesses all the attributes of perfection.
The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “Whoever recites Qul huwa Allaahu ahad ten times, Allaah will build for him a house in Paradise.” (Sahih al-Jami’ al-Saghir, 6472).
