Who is Allah? | Islamic Beliefs & Facts |

Allah

Allah is an Arabic Language word that means “God”, the one and only God in Islam is Allah.

Furthermore, Allah is one and knows all the power, and rules of the universe and creates everything in existence.

1. Allah Definition:

Islam warmly and strictly emphasizes that the “God” is One, Singular (tawhid), unique (Wahid), and inherently (Ahad) also called merciful and omnipotent. One who thinks that there is more than one God is doing Shirk. Shirk is a Major Sin. Allah SWT never tolerates shirk on any condition.

“Allah” is the name that God has chosen for Himself, as stated in Verse 9 of Surat Al-Naml (Chapter 27), and Verse 14 of Surat Taha (Chapter 20) of the Holy Quran.

2. Allah defines Himself in the Quran:

Indeed, I am Allah. There it’s no other God except me. So, worship me and establish prayer for my    Remembered

Al Quran (Surat Taha, 20: 14)

He is God, the One. God, the Absolute. He begets not, nor was He begotten. And there is nothing comparable to Him

Al Quran (Surat Ikhlas,  112:1–4).

iii. Allah! There is no (other) god but He, the Eternally Living, the Maintainer (in charge of all things). Neither slumber nor sleep seizes Him. His is whatsoever in the Heavens and the Earth. Who is that who intercedes in His presence except by His permission? (Nobody does).

3. Allah Defines in Other Religion:

i. Bible

The name of Allah is probably a contraction of the Arabic al-Ilāh, “the God.”

The name’s origin can be traced to the earliest Semitic writings in which the word for God was (il, el), or (Eloah), the latter two used in the Hebrew Bible (Old Testament).

If you pick up an Arabic Bible, you will see the word “Allah” being used where “God” is used in English

ii. Christians:

Allah is the most common and slandered name spoken by Christians; Jews as well as Muslims.

4. Who is Allah?

According to the Islamic religion and statements or witnesses “There is no God but Allah”.

All over the world, Muslims believe that things Allah has created a whole world in six days and sent prophets such as Noah (a.s), Ibrahim (a.s), Mosa(a.s), and lastly Muhammad (p.b.u.h).

Who called the people to worship only Allah and rejected idolatry and polytheism?

i. Al-Khaliq (The Creator)

The Qur’an describes how Allah created Adam (a.s):

We created man from sounding clay, from mud moulded into shape…

Al Quran (15:26)

He began creating man from clay and made his progeny from a quintessence of fluid

Al Quran (32:7-8)

According to Tafsir Ibn Kathir, this is a reference to human creation from “Turabian”, or a Dust it is related to humankind born.

The creation of the first being Prophet Adam (A.S) from dust,( And Allah did create you from dust, then from Nutfah”).

It means Allah makes your father Adam from Dust, and then he started his offspring from semen.

The constructor or creator, Allah creates the Earth and Heavens. He creates everything from non-existence to existence, and he is the most merciful and majestically.

Allah Pak says in the Quran:

Does not man see that it is We Who created him from a sperm-drop? Yet behold! He (stands forth) as an open disputer

[36:77]

ii. Allah is our Malik (The King):

Allah called himself Al-Malik- which means The King, The Ruler, and the Owner of Dominion.

Allah is the creator of the whole universe, and it has supreme authority and is ruled by no one.

It is also called Maalik, Maleek, and it means ownership, possession, power, and ability.

This root appears 206 times in the Holy Quran in Ten derived forms. For Example, Malakat (Possess), Mulaku (Dominion) and Al-Malaa’ikatu (The Angels).

iii. Allah is our Al-Razzaq (The Sustainer):

The ‘Al-Razzaq’ means ‘The Sustainer’ or ‘The Provider’, Allah sustained his creation and provided for them without asking him for that.

One who recites this name Allah offers sustenance. The “God” name of Allah was mentioned one time in the Holy Quran.

5. What Does Allah mean?

Allah is the name of God and Almighty in the Arabic Language name.

In other languages and different people speak in and worship in their tong. Allah’s name is never used for other peoples, things, or animals, it is specified for the almighty.

In other languages, God or Allah’s name is used in the form of plural, but ‘Allah’ name is never used in the form of plural.

Because it does means Islam advocates the belief in the unity of Allah or God. I recommended one thing if they possibly speak ‘Allah’ because God is not the whole meaning of Allah.

Different people are using God (Khuda, Kuda) it is not the correct name of the spell, the right name and spelling are ‘Allah’, and the spelling of Allah’s name is ‘Allah’ not ‘Allah, Alha’ these types of words are not for Allah.

Allah recognized his name of 99 (ninety-nine) these attributes are mentioned in our Holy Quran. The book of our Prophet (p.b.u.h).

How to ask Allah for forgiveness:

Allah wants the people to be constant remembrance and Prayer of his worship. Allah knows we will fall into sin, but the Almighty always seeks his sin and forgiveness and ask for his mercy.

The Messenger of Allah Holy Prophet Muhammad (p.b.u.h) said:

By the One in Whose Hand my soul is! If you do not commit sins, Allah will replace you with a people who would commit sins and seek forgiveness from Allah; and Allah will certainly forgive them.

Prophet Hazrat Muhammad (SAW)

The Prophets are used to seek forgiveness more than 70 times a day.

(Bukhari Sharif)

Allah says in the Quran:

And Allah would not punish them while they seek forgiveness

Al- Quran

6. The Belief in God:

The Muslims believe in the most merciful, unique, and incomparable Allah, who is no Father, Mother, Son, and Partner, and that none has the right to be worshipped but alone.

He is the true Allah; every other deity is false and is made by humans. In the Quran, Allah describes himself:

He is God, the One. God, the Absolute. He begets not, nor was He begotten. And there is nothing comparable to Him

(Al- Quran 112: 1-4)

No one is invoked or prayed to show any act of worship, but Allah is alone. Allah is alone, The Sovereign, Creature, and the sustainer of everything in the universe.

Islam also rejected those religions or peoples and attributed the form of Allah. All of these things are considered in Islam, fake and blasphemous.

Allah is the most powerful and exalted. Allah does not become drowsy, nor does he sleep. He and she can ask Allah anything directly without asking anyone else.

i. Alhamdulillah Mean:

Al-Hamdulillah is an Arabic Alphabetic word that means ‘Praise of Allah’.

Some of times Al- the Hamdulillah word translates as ‘Thank of Allah’.  The long and full phrase is Al- Hamdulillahi rabbi l- Alamin, which means “All praise is due to God, Lord of all worlds”.

ii. Allahu Akbar Means:

Allahu Akbar is an Arabic Alphabetic word phrase which is mean’s “God is Greater”, and it is also called Takbir. 

Allaha Akbar and Allahu Ekber are similar variants that may also refer to.

7. Five Pillars (Ark’an) of Islam:

The Religion of Islam is based on five pillars (Ark’an).

The Religious practice of Islam, which means ‘Only worship for Allah’ that is based on tents is known as the Five Pillar (Arka’n) of Islam, and all over the world Muslims are strictly following them.

i. The Profession of Faith (Shahada, Taw’heed):

The Taw’heed or Shahada is the most fundamental expression and an Arabic term which is referred to the Islamic belief in the oneness of God.

It simply states that “There is no God but God and Muhammad (p.b.u.h) is his Prophet.” In the above sentence is the Monotheistic nature of Islam.

It believes that there is no God for worship but Allah, When Muslim mentioned the most powerful Allah’s name, they are calling to the one and only true God, and it is the sustainer, Creator, and  Eternal the Owner of the Universe.

Tawheed is the first pillar of Islam and most important, it is key to entering Islam. To become a Muslim and adopt Islam, a person must pronounce the testimony of faith or ‘shahada’ in Arabic.

The testimony of faith in Islam is the most important thing for every Muslim. The words or phrase “la-ilaha-ill-Allah” is announced during the Call to Prayer and Azan.

This is the word that calls the difference between a Muslim and a Non-Muslim. After reciting the word ‘karma,’ some other rules of Islam become obligatory on us which are given below.

ii. The Prayer (Salah):

The Prayer or salah is the most important pillar of Arka’n in Islam, and on the day of judgment, the prayers will be reckoned first, if the person praying is good then it will be successful. 

On the other hand, if the person’s prayers are incorrect in some way, then the person will have achieved failure.

There are five-time of obligatory Prayers that every sane adult Muslim has to observe every day. Prayer is a link between Allah and Person.

Allah Pak tells us about prayers in the Quran.

Guard strictly (five obligatory) the prayers especially the middle prayer (i.e. Asr). And stand before Allah with Obedience.” (Al- Quran chapter 2, verse 238)

Al-Quran

The daily five prayers are:

  • Fajr (Early morning, before down)
  • Duhr (Midday, Just after-noon)
  • Asr (Mid afternoon)
  • Maghrib (Just after sunset)
  • Isha (After dark has fallen, At night )

iii. Support of Needy (Zakat):

Zakat is the third phase or pillar or Arka’n of Islam; It is a specified portion of Muslim’s wealth that is given to those people who are poor.

It is the whole amount of specific part it is given to the specific categories of people.

Zakat is a charity given to poor and un-wealthy people around the house, village, and world.

Allah Pak says in the Quran:

True piety is this: to believe in God, and the Last Day…to perform the prayer and to pay the zakat.” ( Al- Quran 2:177)

Al-Quran

Prophet Muhammad (p.b.u.h) Has Said:

Whoever pays the zakat on his wealth will have its evil removed from him

Prophet Muhammad SAW

The above are the most common asset classes for Zakat is paid from.

  • Gold and Silver.
  • Precious Metals.
  • Stocks and Shares.
  • Real Estate.
  • Cash Money.
  • Agriculture Livestock.

iv. Fasting in the Month of Ramadan:

The Islamic calendar of Ramadan, is the ninth month and the fourth pillar of Islam.

It is referred to as the practice of abstaining from eating food, Drinking Liquid (water, juice, milk, etc.) from the break of dawn until sunset.

Similarly, fasting is obligatory for adult Muslims, Male and females, and every sane.

The Holy month of Ramadan falls once a year to piety and God-consciousness and strengthens our faith.

In the month of Holy Ramada that Allah has forbidden, practicing patience throughout the day, controlling the desired things, and competing in generosity through charity.

The Month of Ramadan is a great month because this month Qur’an is revealed to Prophet Muhammad (p.b.u.h).

Allah says in the Holy Qur’an:

O you who believe! Observing the fast is prescribed for you as it was prescribed for those before you, that you may become pious.

(Al- Qur’an Chapter 2, Verse 183)

v. The Pilgrimage to Makkah (Hajj):

Hajj is the fifth pillar of Islam to perform the pilgrimage to Makkah. Every year millions of Muslim people go to Makkah and perform the Hajj.

It is one of the most important forms of worship in Islam and demonstrates unity among Muslims.

Every Muslim must perform this act at least once in his life if he is physically and financially capable.

This is a process that requires more time and energy than a person, so it needs to be done only once in a lifetime.

The reward of Hajj is very Good, and the Holy Prophet Muhammad (p.b.u.h) said about Hajj.

He who performs Hajj seeking Allah’s pleasure and avoids all lewdness and sins (therein) will return after Hajj free from all sins, just as he was on the day his mother gave birth to him.

(Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him).
