Oneness

http://allonegod.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/09/OnenessLogo-100x100.jpgMonotheists hold that there is only one god, and may claim that the one true god is worshiped in different religions under different names. The view that all theists actually worship the same god, whether they know it or not, is especially emphasized in Hinduism and Sikhism.

Islam’s most fundamental concept is tawhīd (meaning “oneness” or “uniqueness”). God is described in the Qur’an as: “Say: He is Allah, the One and Only; Allah, the Eternal, Absolute; He begetteth not, nor is He begotten; And there is none like unto Him.”  Muslims repudiate the Christian doctrine of the Trinity and divinity of Jesus, comparing it to polytheism. In Islam, God is beyond all comprehension or equal and does not resemble any of his creations in any way. Thus, Muslims are not iconodules, and are not expected to visualize God.

Henotheism is the belief and worship of a single god while accepting the existence or possible existence of other deities.
