Allah is an Arabic word

Allah is referred to in the Qur’an as the Lord of the Worlds. He has no personal name, unlike the biblical Yahweh (often misread as Jehovah), and his traditional 99 names are only epithets. The Creator, King, Almighty, and All-Seer are among these. In a statement that usually precedes passages, two prominent titles of Allah appear: Bismillah, al-Rahman, al-Rahim (In the name of Allah, the Compassionate, the Merciful).

Allah is also the Master of the Day of Judgment, when the righteous, especially believers, will be sent to their celestial recompense and the wicked, especially unbelievers, will be consigned to hellfire. Muslims claim to oppose anthropomorphic depictions of Allah, however the Qur’an describes him as speaking, sitting on a throne, and having a face, eyes, and hands.

Nothing can ever happen unless Allah causes it or at least permits it, thus when making arrangements of any kind, Muslims often say in sha’ allah (God willing). If everything goes well, one can say ma sha’ allah (Whatever Allah wills), but in any case, one can say al-hamdu li-llah (Thank you, Allah). Muslims exclaim that Allah is greater than all else (Allahu akbar) in their prayers and on various occasions (including conflicts and street protests).

Allah and the god of the Bible

Allah is commonly understood to signify “the god” (al-ilah) in Arabic and is likely cognate with rather than derived from the Aramaic Alaha. Even though their interpretations differ, all Muslims and most Christians accept that they believe in the same god.

Arabic-speaking Christians refer to God as Allah, and Gideon bibles, which include John 3:16 in various languages, claim that Allah sent his son into the world.

The Qur’an declares, “Our god and your god are one” while addressing Christians and Jews. The names Allah and al-Rahman were clearly used for God by pre-Islamic Jews and Christians, and the Qur’an even criticizes Christians for equating Allah with Christ, as well as both Jews and Christians for calling themselves children of Allah.

Allah is not a trinity of three persons, and he has no son who was incarnate (made flesh) as a man. As a result, some Christians reject that Allah is the god they worship. Despite their shared rejection of the trinity and the incarnation, they appear to believe that Jews worship the same god.

Trying to argue that the Qur’an’s god and the Bible’s god are different creatures is like to claiming that the New Testament’s Jesus and the Qur’an’s Jesus (who is not divine and was not crucified) are two different historical figures. Some will argue that, while there are opposing interpretations of the same Jesus, God and Allah are not the same.
