Who is Allah?

Who is Allah?

Some of the biggest misconceptions that many non-Muslims have about Islam have to do with the word Allah.

For various reasons, many people have come to believe that Muslims worship a different God than Christians and Jews.  This is totally false, since Allah is the Arabic word and name for “The One True God”.

Let there be no doubt – Muslims worship the God of Noah, Abraham, Moses, David and Jesus – peace be upon them all.  However, it is certainly true that Jews, Christians and Muslims all have different concepts of Almighty God.  This, however, does not mean that each of these three religions worships a different God. Judaism, Christianity and Islam are all Abrahamic Faiths and all of them are also classified as monotheistic.

First of all, it is important to note that “Allah” is the same word that Arabic-speaking Christians and Jews 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.

One who decides to submit to this One True God is called a Muslim, and his or her way of life is called Islam – the submission to the One True God.
