"In the beginning"...opens Genesis, the first book of the Old Testament. The Holy Qur’an (Muslim Holy Book) agrees. It differs only in using the word "Allah," which is formed by joining the definite article "al" (meaning "the") with "Illah" (God). Literally, the word "Allah" means "the God." Not a god, for there is only one. The God...

Allah is the name of the Supreme Being Who is the Sole Possessor of all perfect attributes and is completely free from all conceivable defects. In the Arabic language, the word "Allah" is never used for any other thing or being. No other language has a distinctive or proper name for the Supreme Being.

This view is corroborated by eminent authorities of the Arabic language. "Allah," according to the most correct of the opinions respecting it, is a proper name, applied to the Being who exists necessarily by Himself, comprising all the attributes of perfection – the "al" being inseparable from it.

Allah is the unique God, without partner, incomparable, the only necessary Being, the only absolute Reality, self-subsisting, self-sufficient, the Highest, the Sublime, the Magnificent, the Praiseworthy, the Holy, the Living, the Eternal, the Creator, the Almighty, the Judge, the Benefactor, the Clement, the Guardian, the Protector, the Just, the Gentle, the Compassionate, the First and the Last, the Apparent and the Hidden, the One by whom all live and to whom all return...

Islam is the proper name of the religion of Allah. Derived from the word "salam," which primarily means "peace" – but in a secondary sense "surrender" – its full connotation is: "The perfect peace that comes when one’s life is surrendered to God." The corresponding adjective is Muslim...

"La ilaha illa Allah" ("There is no God but The God") proclaims the Muslim, whose proper name is Allah...

Allah was a moon deity but

Before Mohammed converted the paganistic Qurash to islam ,they whorshiped deities called allat,manet,and Al uzza. The sabeans which ruled much of arabia prior to,Bedouins adapted the deioty allat from the Sabeans.

Mohammed probally copying Christains or jews deciided to convert his people to Islam. In order to get his people to listen he had to subsitute the deity of yaweh in the bible with allat,which he deemed as being one instead of many.

Allat was allah the moon deity.
