As noted by :
“Allah is a word for God. In Arabic, the word means simply “the God.” It is used mainly by Muslims and often, albeit not exclusively, by Bahá’ís, Arabic-speaking Eastern Catholic Christians, Maltese Roman Catholics, Eastern Orthodox Christians, Mizrahi Jews and Sikhs.”
Quran/Islam/Muhammad did not invent the word “Allah”, a proper name of G-d, One-God in the Arabic language. It is and was used by other religions also.
Quran/Islam/Muhammad gave the perfect attributes of G-d, that are very reasonable having no contradiction in them. So, the peculiarity of Quran is giving the right attributes. In fact the whole Quran explains the attributes of G-d and how to inculcate them in one’s won self with seeking help from G-d or Allah. This is the concept of Islamic worship. It is not that G-d needs our worship, it is the we human being who need this worship. If we don’t do that, then we are automatically switched to worship evil and go into the footsteps of the Devil.
We can go upwards, by elevating ourselves to higher moral and spiritual status struggling against our base instincts else our evil instincts drag us down.
The first chapter of Quran summarizes:
- introduction to the four most essential attributes of G-d,
- then as to how to seek G-d’s help on the path towards G-d
- and as to how to be perfect human beings who were successful in attaining nearness to G-d,
- that is faraway from the evil or Devil’s path.
The whole of the rest of Quran is illustration and elaboration of the above. This is the amazing system of Quran, the only secure and the pristine Word revealed, without any corruptions.
