He is Allah the True God.

You cannot overpower Allah, neither on the earth nor in the heaven. None can protect you from Allah nor come to your aid against Him. (Surah 29:22)

SubhanAllah there is none who can over power Allah Swt. Nor is there anyone who can protect you from Allah Swt. This is such a unique statement made by Allah Swt, showing his power and glory. Allah Swt has control over all his creation. Not a single creature can escape from Allah Swt.  Almighty Allah Swt  is the master of all creation, everything belongs to him alone, he does not share his kingdom, glory and power with anyone. 

The same thing has been said in Surah Ar-Rahman as a challenge to the jinns and mankind: “O company of jinns and men! If you have the power to escape across the bounds of the earth and heavens, then do escape! You shall not escape, for it requires a great power,” (Ayat 33). (Islamic studies tafheem)

There is no doubt Allah Swt is the master of the universe, he created the heavens and earth alone and is above his creation. With his command everything happens, there is not a single creature on the face of the earth who can stop him. All of his creation are dependent on him, rather he Allah Swt is not dependent on any of his creation. He has no partner in His sovereignty. He is one the absolute the eternal, he begets not nor is he begotten, and there is nothing like him as mentioned in Surah 112. There is nothing like unto him as mentioned in surah 41:11. He is the creator, the originator, the restorer, the most powerful, the doer of what he intends as found in surah 85:16. He is the most gracious most merciful. He forgives whomever he wills, no matter how much they may have sinned. He is the cherisher, the sustainer, he is the loving the kind. Everything happens through his command. Is the mighty the wise. He see all that happens. No one can challenge or question him, rather he will question us all. He is the judge, he gives life and death. There is no creature that can overpower him. To Allah Swt belongs all dominion. No fatigue, tiredness, weariness affects him, he is above all defects which humans go through. Glory be to Allah the lord of the worlds. Allah is One.

He is Allah: there is no god but He; the Knower of the unseen and the manifest, He is the Most Merciful, the Most Compassionate.  He is Allah: there is no god but He: the King, the Holy, the All-Peace, the Giver of security, the Overseer, the Most Mighty, the Overpowering, the All-Great. Exalted be He from whatever they associate with Him.  He is Allah, the Planner, Executer and Fashioner of creation. His are the names most beautiful. Whatever is in the heavens and the earth extols His Glory. He is the Most Mighty, the Most Wise. (Surah 59:22-24)

Compare with what the Bible said about God?

they said, “Come, let us build ourselves a city and a tower with its top in the heavens, and let us make a name for ourselves, lest we be dispersed over the face of the whole earth.” And the LORD came down to see the city and the tower, which the children of man had built. And the LORD said, “Behold, they are one people, and they have all one language, and this is only the beginning of what they will do. And nothing that they propose to do will now be impossible for them. Come, let us go down and there confuse their language, so that they may not understand one another’s speech.” So the LORD dispersed them from there over the face of all the earth, and they left off building the city. (Genesis 11:4-8)

notice from the above passage, Yahweh the God of the Bible came down on earth to see what his creations were doing. What’s worse these mortal devise a plan to build a tower which would reach the heavens, eventually sharing the same platform as God. Yahweh had to stop their plan, which clearly indicates he was afraid thy would surely reach him. This type of absurd concept of God being afraid of his own creations, is unacceptable and dismissed by Muslims. If we go back to the Quran, this is what Allah Swt says about such claims name by the Jews.

You cannot overpower Allah, neither on the earth nor in the heaven. None can protect you from Allah nor come to your aid against Him. (Surah 29:22)

SubhanAllah Glory be to Allah, he is free from all defects which ignorant humans have written about, attributing to him. Allah Swt has made it clear what they wrote is not from Allah.
And there is a party among them who twist their tongues while reciting the Book to make you think that it is part of the Book when in fact it is not. They say: 'It is from Allah', when in fact it is not from Allah. They falsely fix a lie upon Allah, and do so wittingly. ( Surah 3:78)

There’s more, previously I wrote a short paper showing, how the Bible portrays man having more power than God. lets analyse how this could also be a major blow to the understanding on how weak Yahweh is when it comes to his own creation.

"Your name will no longer be Jacob," the man told him. "From now on you will be called Israel, because you have fought with God and with men and have won." (Genesis 32:28)
Even in the womb, Jacob struggled with his brother; when he became a man, he even fought with God. (Hosea 12:3)

Reading Genesis 32 from context after trying to flee from his brother Esau, Jacob was confronted by Yahweh the God of Israel, having wrestled with God, Jacob over powered his creator!. Can you imagine God was beaten by his creation? This type of nonsense cannot be accepted as inspired scripture. The Jews have truly crossed all limits and boundaries, by perverting and twisting the true concept of God, , making him no less than a weak mortal beaten by someone stronger. Jacob goes to say he saw God face to face.
…So Jacob called the name of the place Peniel, saying, “For I have seen God face to face, and yet my life has been delivered….” (Genesis 32:30)

 Again when we go back to the Quran Allah Swt tells us :
You cannot overpower Allah, neither on the earth nor in the heaven. None can protect you from Allah nor come to your aid against Him. (Surah 29:22)
...There is nothing like unto Him, and He is the Hearing, the Seeing. (Surah 42:11)
Who is there can intercede in His presence except as He permitteth? He knoweth what (appeareth to His creatures as) before or after or behind them…. (Surah 2:255)
Let not those who run towards disbelief grieve you; they shall not hurt Allah in the least. Allah will not provide for them any share in the Next Life. A mighty punishment awaits them. (Surah 3:176)
Indeed, those who disbelieved and averted [people] from the path of Allah and opposed the Messenger after guidance had become clear to them - never will they harm Allah at all, and He will render worthless their deeds. (Surah 47:32)

SubhanAllah Glory be to Allah, he is above all defect they attribute to him. Allah Swt tells us clearly, that there is nothing like unto him (Surah 42:11) and never will they harm or hurt Allah Swt at all (surah 47:32, surah 3:176). Those evil texts found in the book of Genesis clearly shows, it could not have been inspired by God Almighty.  Wait there’s more
We read in the Book of Exodus that is Torah, where Moses supposed to have admonished Yahweh God of Israel. Confused? yes that’s right Moses admonished Yahweh, because Yahweh wanted to destroyed the children of Israel for the ill doings making the golden calf. Not only did Moses admonish Yahweh, he also made him change his mind and make him Repent!.

The LORD said to Moses, "I have seen this people, and behold, they are an obstinate people. Now leave me alone so my fierce anger can blaze against them, and I will destroy them. Then I will make you, Moses, into a great nation." But Moses interceded with the LORD his God: " LORD, why does Your anger burn against Your people You brought out of the land of Egypt with great power and a strong hand? Wherefore should the Egyptians speak, and say, For mischief did he bring them out, to slay them in the mountains, and to consume them from the face of the earth? Turn from thy fierce wrath (change your mind), and repent of this evil against thy people. (Exodus 32:9-12)

And the LORD repented of the evil which he thought to do unto his people. (Exodus 32:14)
How evil is that, this is blasphemy uttering such lies about God Almighty. Moses being the Messenger of God Almighty, not only admonished him, but also made him change his mind and repent! Again, Allah Swt tell us in the Quran about himself, and how he alone has power to do all things. No creature on the face of the earth or heaven can tell what God should do and what he shouldn’t do. Allah Swt makes his own decision he needs no advisors nor does he depend on anyone.

O people, it is you who stand in need of Allah; as for Allah, He is Self-Sufficient, Immensely Praiseworthy. (Surah 35:15)

Whosoever strives(in the cause of Allah) does so to his own good. Surely Allah stands in no need of anyone in the whole Universe. (Surah 29:6)

Indeed those who said: 'Christ, the son of Mary, he is indeed God', disbelieved. Say (O Muhammad!): 'Who could have overruled Allah had He so willed to destroy Christ, the son of Mary, and his mother, and all those who are on earth?' For to Allah belongs the dominion of the heavens and the earth and all that is between them; He creates what He wills. Allah is All-Powerful. (Surah 5:17)

If Allah afflicts you with any hardship, none other than He can remove it; and if He wills any good for you, none can avert His bounty. He bestows good upon whomsoever of His servants He wills. He is AllForgiving, All-Merciful.' (Surah 10:107)

If Allah helps you, none can overcome you: If He forsakes you, who is there, after that, that can help you? in Allah, then, Let believers put their trust. (Surah 3:160)
Who is there can intercede in His presence except as He permitteth? He knoweth what (appeareth to His creatures as) before or after or behind them…. (Surah 2:255)
And recite (and teach) what has been revealed to thee of the Book of thy Lord: none can change His Words, and none wilt thou find as a refuge other than Him. (18:27)

SubhanAllah Glory be to Allah Swt, Allah Swt is free from all defects these evil men attribute him to be. he has dismissed any notions where he could be questioned, admonished or repent. (Astgfirullah) there’s one more point I would like to touch upon, and that is is God Almighty powerful? According to the Bible God was unable to help Judah fight an inhabitant od people, because they had iron chariots.

And the LORD was with Judah; and he drave out the inhabitants of the mountain; but could not drive out the inhabitants of the valley, because they had chariots of iron. (Judges 1:19)

Imagine a God who is unable to fight a group of men who have iron chariots? Allah Swt tells us in the Quran.

the Executor of what He wills. (85:16)

They shall abide in it as long as the heavens and the earth endure,unless your Lord may will otherwise. Surely your Lord does whatsoever He wills. (11:107)

From these comparisons, we can see how Allah Swt the Greatest is the True God, without any defects. He Allah Swt is the One and only True God without any partners. to him belongs the heavens and the earth and everything in between them. Glory be to Allah Swt the lord of the Words. He has no resemblance or can be attributed to his creation, there is nothing like unto him (surah 42:11, surah 112) he is Allah Swt. Whereas the same cannot be said about the God of the Bible. He has many defects which nullifies him to be a God. the God of the bible has human attributes, is weak, get admonished and even repents. Is afraid of his own creation and has no absolute power to stop objects created by men i.e. iron chariots (Judges 1:19).

Do you really want to follow the God of the Bible  who has no power of his own creation? Make your choice !
