Who Is "Allah"? The name "Allah" is a word that is heard quite often these days whether it is on the television or passed along in conversation. But most non-Muslims have no idea who Allah is.

The Unity of Allah: Islam affirms the Unity of Allah (God) and His indivisible sovereignty over the Universe. Allah is the Creator, the Master, the Sustainer of all that exists. Everything operates according to His plan.

Pondering on the Signs of God: In the Qur’an, it is stated that the unbeliever is one who neither recognizes nor appreciates the signs of God. The distinguishing mark of a believer is his ability to see those signs and proofs.

Allah - Both Transcendent and Immanent: Of central importance to the Islamic creed is a firm belief in Allah (God)1 that accords with the precepts set in the Qur’an and Sunnah.

Islam and the Nature of the Universe: The last of the Abrahamic religions, following Judaism and Christianity, Islam considers the creation of the universe as ultimate proof of the existence of one Creator who “is that dimension which makes other dimensions possible.

Is Allah a Special God for Muslims? There is often confusion among non-Arabic speakers that "Allah" is a special god for Muslims. However, Muslims believe that there is no deity worth of worshiping accept the One True God.

My Mercy Prevails Over My Wrath: “The willingness to forgive and not to punish” is a definition frequently used for the word mercy, but what is mercy in Islam? With Islam, mercy was given a deeper meaning that created a vital aspect in the life of every Muslim, which he is rewarded by God (Allah) for showing.

Belief: Five Pillars: Muslims believe in only One God, the same God that Jews and Christians believe in, but some of the ideas about the nature of God are different. First, let us clarify that “Allah” is simply the Arabic word for God, just as “Dios” or “Dieu” are the words for God in Spanish and French, respectively.

Allah: The Creator-The Omniscient-The Self Sufficient: Allah is the proper name applied to the only true God Who exists necessarily by Himself, comprising all the excellent Divine names and attributes of perfection. Allah is One and Unique; He has no partner or equal. He is the sole Creator and sustainer of the universe. Every creature bears witness to His Oneness.

Is Allah Pleased with Me? It should be known that obedience to Allah is one of the chief reasons for attaining Allah’s pleasure, while disobedience to Him is a reason for being subject to His wrath. This point is emphasized repeatedly in the Quran and Sunnah.
