Islam, belief in One God is the most important belief.
Allah in Arabic refers to the One God. It is a known fact
that every language has one or more terms that are used in
reference to God and sometimes to lesser deities. This is not the
case with Allah. Allah is the personal name of the One true God.
Nothing else can be called Allah. The term has no plural or
gender. This shows its uniqueness when compared with the word god
which can be made plural, gods, or feminine, goddess. It is
interesting to notice that Allah is the personal name of God in
Aramaic, the language of Jesus and a sister language of Arabic.
The One true God is a reflection of the unique concept that Islam
associates with God. To a
Muslim, Allah is the Almighty, Creator and Sustainer of the
universe, Who is similar to nothing and nothing is comparable to
has many deities. This is much like ancient Greek and Roman
religions. The god Brahma is the creator of the world. The
god Vishnu who preserves the world through his many
incarnations. The god Shiva will destroy the world which
will be rebuilt by Brahma. In their Rig-Veda Book, we find
prayers to some 70 objects, each serving as a deity. The concept
of god Brahma is similar to the concept of Trinity in
Christianity. The Brahma is responsible for all workings of the
world and everyone is a part of him. Different gods are viewed as
different aspects of him. (polytheism)
