Complete Definition of "Allah"

English
wikipedia

Etymology
Arabic ARchar|الله (allāh), from ‎ARchar|-ال‏ (al-) “the” + ARchar|اله|إِله (’ilah) “god”.

Pronunciation
IPA|ælə
rhymes|ælə

Proper noun
Allah

  1. The deity of Islam.

Usage notes
While the Arabic ARchar|الله is used generically to refer to God in Jewish, Christian, and Islamic contexts, current English usage almost always restricts the corresponding term Allah to Islamic contexts only. Various newspaper style manuals recommend translating the Arabic word as God, as this better reflects Arabic usage, but the term is often left untranslated in Islamic contexts. Thus either “Allah is great” or “God is great” may be seen.
