Native name اللّٰه‎


Allah is the Arabic word for God in Abrahamic religions. In the English language, the word generally refers to the single deity worshipped in Islam. Allah is considered the supreme being, creator, and sustainer of the universe according to Islamic belief.

In Islam, Allah is believed to have revealed his divine message through various prophets, with Muhammad(s.) being the final prophet. The Quran, Islam's holy book, is considered the literal word of Allah as revealed to Muhammad(s.) over a period of 23 years.

Islamic theology emphasizes the oneness of Allah, rejecting the concept of multiple gods or deities. Muslims believe in the absolute sovereignty and omnipotence of Allah, who governs all aspects of existence.

Devotion to Allah is a central tenet of Islam, with Muslims performing acts of worship such as prayer (salat), fasting (sawm), charity (zakat), and pilgrimage (hajj) as acts of obedience and submission to Allah's will.

While Allah is primarily associated with Islam, the term is also used by Arabic-speaking Christians and Jews to refer to God."
