2. Allah, the Eternal Refuge.

3. He neither begets nor is born,

4. Nor is there to Him any equivalent.  [Soorah al-Ikhlaas]

[4]: “Nor is there to Him any equivalent:” There is nothing from His creation equivalent to Him or similar to Him, not in His names, not in His attributes, and not in His actions; He is blessed, lofty, and far-removed from any imperfections.
