I Believe in one, unique, incomparable God, Who has no son nor partner, and that none has the right to be worshipped but Him alone. He is the true God, and every other deity is false. He has the most magnificent names and sublime perfect attributes. No one shares His divinity, nor His attributes. In the Quran, God describes Himself: Say, He is God, the One. God, to Whom the creatures turn for their needs. He begets not, nor was He begotten, and there is none like Him. (Quran, 112:1-4) . No one has the right to be invoked, supplicated, prayed to, or shown any act of worship, but God alone. God alone is the Almighty, the Creator, the Sovereign, and the Sustainer of everything in the whole universe. He manages all affairs. He stands in need of none of His creatures, and all His creatures depend on Him for all that they need. He is the All-Hearing, the All-Seeing, and the All-Knowing.

Because each religion claims that their god is different, so the word gods.

God and Gods is singular and plural forms of expression. The truth is there's only True God, the creator and sustainer of this universe. We try to exemplify with our denotations which leads us to use words like "Gods", "Goddess", "God father", "God mother" etc. We know that these are polymorphic variants of expressing the true feeling "God".

Everything comes from that ONE formless intelligence. Because everything emerge from that ONE -the GOD, all that we see must be GOD. Education, wealth, Strength, Rain, fire, earth, space, intelligence, ignorance, honesty, dishonesty,beauty, ugliness whatever it is you name it, it has come from that ONE. If you concentrate on one particular aspect and sincerely pray to achieve that, you are blessed with that particular aspect in life. People seeking knowledge gets knowledge, people seeking wealth gets wealth. So different Gods are created as symbols for achieving particular aspect in life. For wealth Lakshmi, for farmers to get rain Varuna, for education Saraswathi etc., etc.,
Creation of these Gods is just to help the human beings to focus their mind on a particular point and to achieve it.
