The true meanings of "la ilaha illa-la" taught by MUHAMMAD(PUBH).

Reader comment on item: Is Allah God?

Submitted by Osman Muhammad Sabri (Pakistan), Sep 23, 2005 at 16:20

Let me first clearfy what ALLAH is as it is told in Quran. ALLAH says: I am the (NOOR) Light of earth & Sky. Now what is light? according to the science light is a form of energy. Energy means power and we all know the basic rule of physics that energy cannot be created nor be destroyed.

So the meaning of ALLAH ( I am the (NOOR) Light of earth & Sky.) is : "I am the power of earth and sky, which means he is the only power."

Coming to the point "la ilaha illa-la" it means "THERE IS NO POWER except ALLAH" in simple words only ALLAH got all the power, he do what ever he wants to do.

translating "la ilaha illa-la" to "There is no GOD but ALLAH" is wrong. Because GOD,ALLAH,BHAGWAN(Hindu's name of GOD) is same.
