 Allah

Allah

 ALLAH, the Arabic name used by Moslems of all nationalities for the one true God. It is compounded of al, the definite article, and ilah, meaning a god.  The same word is found in Hebrew and Aramaic as well as in ancient Arabic (Sabaean).  The meaning of the root from which it is derived is very doubtful; cf.  Lane’s Arabic-English Lexicon, p.  82, and the Oxford Hebrew and English Lexicon, pp. 61 ff.
