in response to reader comment: Muslims worship Allah

Submitted by Shakeel (Pakistan), Feb 14, 2007 at 19:06

In arabic, "lah" is a word used for god/deity. "Al" is a definite article means "The"

So "Al-lah" means "The-god"

Allah is a contraction of "Al-lah"

There is also a difference between "God" and "god". The first one is the supreme deity who had created the whole universe, while the second one means any object of worship.

Muhammad (sws) never worshipped idols, nor your above statements are true. When any Muslim use the word Allah, he means this

A god(object of worship) who is One and Only

A god, who is Self-Sufficient, Subsistence, created the whole universe and its Sustainer

A god, who has begotten none and who is also not begotten of anyone.

A god, no one is like Him and He has power over everything
