Who Is Allah ? by MoGaHeDa Who Is Allah ? by MoGaHeDa
-----------------------

" Allah " is the Arabic word " الله " that means " The One True God "

It is the word that Arabic-speaking Christians , Jews and Muslims use for " God " .

If you pick up an Arabic Bible, you will see the word " Allah " being used where " God " is used in English. This is because “Allah” is a word in the Arabic language equivalent to the English word “God” with a capital “G”. Additionally, the word “Allah” cannot be made plural, a fact which goes hand-in-hand with the Islamic concept of God.
Here is the first Page of Arabic Bible - Genesis 1 [link] ,
and you can check the bible web site here [link] , the word Allah " الله " mentioned 16 times

In Hebrew, God is called Elohim or Eloha ,
In Aramaic, the language spoken by Jesus -peace be upon him-, God is called Elah : [link]
you can also Know the name of God in other languages here : [link]

--------------

So , Muslims worship the God of Noah, Abraham, Moses, David and Jesus - peace be upon them all .

Judaism, Christianity and Islam all claim to be “Abrahamic Faiths”, and all of them are also classified as “monotheistic.”

But Jews, Christians and Muslims all have different concepts of Almighty God. For example, Muslims - like Jews - don’t believe in the Trinity and the Divine Incarnation.

This, however, does not mean that each of these three religions worships a different God - because, as we have already said, there is only One True God.

---------------------------------------------------
Here I will talk about Islamic Concept of God :
----------------------------------------------
Muslims prefer calling the Supreme Creator, Allah, instead of by the English word ‘God’.
The Arabic word, " Allah ", is pure and unique, unlike the English word ‘God’, which can be played around with.

If you add ‘s’ to the word God, it becomes ‘Gods’, that is the plural of God. Allah is one and singular, there is no plural of Allah. If you add ‘dess’ to the word God, it becomes ‘Goddess’ that is a female God.
There is nothing like male Allah or female Allah. Allah has no gender. There is nothing like ‘Allah-Ammi’, or ‘Allah-mother’ in Islam.

To a Muslim , Allah is the Almighty Creator and Sustainer of the universe, Who is similar to nothing, and nothing is comparable to Him.
The Prophet Muhammad was asked by his contemporaries about Allah; the answer came directly from Allah Himself in the form of a short chapter of the Quran, which is considered to be the essence of the unity of monotheism.

This is chapter 112, which reads :
In the name of Allah, the Merciful, the Compassionate.

" Say (O Muhammad) , He is Allah, [who is] One (1)
Allah, the Eternal Refuge (2)
He neither begets nor is born (3)
Nor is there to Him any equivalent (4) ”


Muslims believe that God does not become a human being , God does not take human form,
The Glorious Qur’an says in the following verse : "There is nothing whatever like unto Him." [Al-Qur'an 42:11]

The unique usage of Allah as a personal name of God is a reflection of Islam’s emphasis on the purity of the belief in God that is the essence of the message of all God’s messengers.
Because of this, Islam considers associating any deity or personality with God as a deadly sin that God will never forgive, despite the fact that He may forgive all other sins.

-----------------------

The Creator must be of a different nature from the things created because, if He is of the same nature as they are, He will be temporal and will therefore need a maker. It follows, therefore, that nothing is like Him.

Furthermore, if the Maker is not temporal, then He must be eternal. If He is eternal, however, He cannot be caused, and if nothing caused Him to come into existence, nothing outside Him causes Him to continue to exist, which means that He must be self-sufficient.
And if He does not depend on anything for the continuance of His own existence, then this existence can have no end, so the Creator is, therefore, eternal and everlasting.
Hence we know that He is Self-sufficient or Self-subsistent, and Everlasting or, to use a Quranic term, Al-Qayyum:
" He is the First and the Last."

The Creator does not create only in the sense of bringing things into being, He also preserves them and takes them out of existence and is the ultimate cause of whatever happens to them.

"Allah is the Creator of everything , and He is , over all things, Disposer of affairs. To Him belong the keys of the heavens and the earth.…" (Quran 39:62-63)
And God says:
" And there is no creature on earth but that upon Allah is its provision, and He knows its place of dwelling and place of storage. All is in a clear register." (Quran 11:16)

--------------------

If the Creator is Eternal and Everlasting, then His attributes must also be eternal and everlasting. If this is so, then his attributes are absolute. Can there be more than one Creator with such absolute attributes ?

Can there be, for example, two absolutely powerful Creators? A moment’s thought shows that this is not feasible.

The Quran summarizes this argument in the following verses:

" Allah has not taken any son, nor has there ever been with Him any deity. [If there had been], then each deity would have taken what it created, and some of them would have sought to overcome others. Exalted is Allah above what they describe [concerning Him]." (Quran 23:91)

Also," Had there been within the heavens and earth gods besides Allah, they both would have been ruined. So exalted is Allah, Lord of the Throne, above what they describe.." (Quran 21:22)
