How you can prove that God exists because no one has seen Him ever, we prove only felt Him. Now what ever logic we give non_muslims have a scientific reson to negate us.
So how you will convince any non_muslim?
Islam reveres the One and Only God, known as Allah (الله) in Arabic. The Islamic belief is that God is the "only creator and master of the universe". The main fundamental creed (shahadah) of Islam is "There is no god but (one) God, and Muhammad is the messenger of God". Muslims believe that Allah is the same deity as God of Christians and Jews.

Allah is the personal name of God[1] used by all Arabic speakers, whatever their religion, including Arab Christians and Jews. Consequently, the word is used in Arabic translations of Tanakh and the Gospels (the Old and New Testaments), as well as in Indonesian and old Turkish translations of the Bible. Arabic speakers of all faiths, whether Jewish, Christian, or Muslim, use the word "Allah" to mean "God".

God's Attributes

Muslims consider God to be:

One and Unique
Without Son or Father
Without Partners
Omnipotent (The Almighty)
Omniscient (All Seeing)
"The Lord"
The Lord of all of the heavens and the earth
Attentive to the prayers of His servants
All Hearing
The All Wise
All Best Names Belong to Him
The Qur'an describes Oneness of God in Sura 112:

1. Say: He is God, the One
2. God, the Eternal, Absolute
3. He begetteth not, nor is he begotten
4. And there is none like unto him. „

The Qur'an also defines attributes of God:

Say: "Call upon God, or call upon Ar-Rahman (the Beneficient) by whatever name ye call upon him, (it is well): for to him belong the Most Beautiful Names. Neither speak thy Prayer aloud, nor speak it in a low tone, but seek a middle course between."

God's omniscience

The Qur'an describes God as being fully aware of everything that happens in the universe, including private thoughts and feelings:

It is He who doth take your souls by night, and hath knowledge of all that ye have done by day: by day doth He raise you up again; that a term appointed be fulfilled; In the end unto Him will be your return; then will He show you the truth of all that ye did.

The Qur'an states that the proclamation of faith (Arabic: Shahaada) is: "There is no god except Allah" (Arabic: Laa ilaaha illa Allaah), In literal terms this would be translated as "There is no god but God."

Allah! There is no god but He, the Living, the Self-subsisting, Eternal. No slumber can seize Him nor sleep. His are all things in the heavens and on earth. 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. Nor shall they compass aught of His knowledge except as He willeth. His Throne doth extend over the heavens and the earth, and He feeleth no fatigue in guarding and preserving them for He is the Most High, the Supreme (in glory).

There is no god but He: That is the witness of Allah, His angels, and those endued with knowledge, standing firm on justice. There is no god but He, the Exalted in Power, the Wise.

Know, therefore, that there is no god but Allah, and ask forgiveness for thy fault, and for the men and women who believe: for Allah knows how ye move about and how ye dwell in your homes.

Your Ilah (God) is one Ilah (God - Allah); there is none who has the ight to be worshipped but He), Most Gracious, Most Merciful.

Verily! This is the true narrative (about the story of Isa/Jesus), and Laa ilaaha illallaah (none has the right to be worshipped but Allah, the One and the Only True God, Who has neither a wife nor a son). And indeed, Allah is the All Mighty, the All Wise.

Allah! Laa ilaaha illa Huwa (none has the right to be worshipped but He). Surely, He will gather you together on the Day of Resurrection about which there is no doubt. And who is truer in statement than Allah?

Prohibition of Idolatry and polytheism

Islam says that Allah is only one God, and anyone worshipping more than one God is a polytheist. This is taken to include the Christian concept of the Trinity. To affirm this belief, Muslims have to repeat the following in their daily prayers:"You alone We worship, and only Your aid We seek.

Other Qur'anic verses that show this position are:

They disbelieved who say: God is one of three (in a Trinity): for there is no god except One God. If they desist not from their word (of blasphemy), verily a grievous chastisement will befall the disbelievers among them.

Wonderful Originator of the heavens and the earth: How can He have a son when He hath no consort? He created all things, and He hath full knowledge of all things.

Islam holds that Allah cannot be seen or directly experienced by the senses. Therefore, the belief that one may physically see God is held to be a sort of polytheism.

Other Qur'anic verse that show this position are:
"No vision can grasp Him, but His grasp is over all vision: He is Subtle well-aware (of all things)."

Thus do We explain the Signs by various (ways): that they may say, "Thou hast learnt this (from somebody)," and that We may make the matter clear to those who know.
You are an eagle, flight is your vocation:
You have other skies stretching out before you.
