Who is Allah?

Allah is the direct translation of God from English. The word Allah is used by Arabic Speaking Christians and Jews all around the World. The origins for the word Allah can be traced to the earliest Semitic writings in which the word for god was il, el, or eloah, also found in the Hebrew Bible (Torah) or the Old Testament.

Many associate the word Allah as a muslim word due to the phrase Allah Akkbar. This phrase simple translates to “God is the greatest”, a phrase even used by Arab Christians and Jews. There are no Muslim words in Islam, it is simply that the Quran was originally written in Arabic, similar to how the Bible was originally written in Hebrew, Aramaic, and Koine Greek and the Torah was originally written in Hebrew.
