Allah, Arabic Allāh (“God”),  the one and only God in Islam. Etymologically, the name Allah is probably a contraction of the Arabic al-Ilāh, “the God.” The name’s origin CAN BE TRACED BACK TO THE EARLIEST SEMITIC WRITINGS in which the word for “god” was il or el, the latter BEING USED IN THE HEBREW BIBLE (OLD TESTAMENT). ALLĀH IS THE STANDARD ARABIC WORD FOR GOD AND IS USED BY ARAB CHRISTIANS AS WELL AS BY MUSLIMS.
