itsIslam - Articles - Allah the Creator and Lord of the universe



Allah is the name of the true One God in the Arabic language. In the Hebrew language His name is Eloh, Elohim for respect. It is well known that when a word is borrowed from one language to another, its spelling and pronunciation is often altered. It is, therefore, reasonable to say that Eloh and Allah are names of the same Deity of Abraham believed by the three monotheistic religions of Judaism, Christianity and Islam. Islam is the most rigorously monotheistic religion among the three dedicated to the worship of Allah, never seen by a human eye.

Who is Allah? The translation of verses from the Qur'an are given to answer this question. References of the verses are given in brackets, the number before the colon represents the Surah (chapter) and the following number represents the verse number.

Allah, the One Only:

  • "Proclaim: Allah is One. Allah is Eternal. He neither begets nor was begotten." (112:1-4)

  • "Nothing is like unto Him." (42:11)

  • "If there were therein Gods besides Allah, then verily both (the heavens and the earth) would have collapsed into disorder and chaos. Glorified be Allah, the Lord of the Throne,
    transcendent beyond all they ascribe unto Him.
    " (21:22)

  • "Sight can never reach Him; His sight reaches all things." (6:103)

  • "And proclaim: Praise be to Allah, Who has not taken unto Himself a son, and Who has no partner in the Sovereignty, nor has He (need for) any protecting friend through dependence. (17:111)

  • "Allah! There is no God save Him." (3:2, 2:255)

  • "Is there any God beside Allah? Nay, but they are folk who ascribe equals (unto Him)!" (27:60).

  • "Is there any God beside Allah? Nay, but most of them know not." (27:61)
