WHO IS ALLAH? Article(s)  
Who is Allah?
Allah is the proper name in Arabic for the English word God. It is a contraction of the two Arabic words al, the definite article “the,” and ilah, god. Thus, linguistically Allah is The God. Arabic, the language of Muhammad, is a Semitic language like Hebrew, the language of Moses, and Aramaic, the language of Jesus. For this very reason, the Arabic word Allah was spelt before as al, uluh, ilahia, el, eloha, elohim by Moses and eloi, alaha by Jesus.
