The transition from Polytheism to monotheism is one of mans highest achievements. Since that time Oneness of God is a primary concept in religions. In this lecture Dr bilal Philips uses rational argument in favor of oneness of God and tries to establish it by using arguments that will be accepted by both Muslims and Non-Muslims.
Dr. Philips was born January 7, 1947 in Jamaica, but grew up in Canada, where he converted to Islam in 1972. He received his B.A. degree from the Islamic University of Medina and his M.A. in Aqeedah (Islamic Theology) from the King Saud University in Riyadh, then to the University of Wales, UK, where he completed a PhD in Islamic Theology in the early 90s. Philips comes from a family of educators, as both his parents were teachers and his grandfather was a Christian minister and Bible scholar. The Islamic Online University (IOU) is the brainchild of Dr. Bilal Philips.
