The Concept of Unseen God in Islam is based on the inherent universed of human nature. The law of evo lution is not applicable. According to the Quranic con tention, God has one of divine unity, the vision of unseen great being who must have created universe, that man could feel and see about and around him. This universe has not came into being by itself. It has been created and so it must have a creator. The perception of unseen God through illumination, which the gnostic enjoy, is certainly not in conflict with the principles of the Quranic concept of God. The Quranic concept is comprehensive enough to accomodate every unitary and invisible concept of God.
The concept of unity of God is so perfect and definite that we scarcely find like prevailing before. Prior Quranic concept of the unity of essence, but the necessity implicit in the concept of the unity in attribute was yet to be fully appreciated. We find that belief in unity of God subsiting side by side with image and hero worship in every early religion. Islam refused to enter any compromise In its unitary and transcendental concept of God. It is definite and inelastic. This rigidity does not prevent it from observing tolerance toward other belief. But it certainly refused to enter into compromise with them. Those who have reached the stage of Ihsan can see reality even in its hidden glories.
