Allah ( /ˈælə/ or /ˈɑːlə/; Arabic: الله Allāh, ) is a word for God. In Arabic, the word means simply "the God." It is used mainly by Muslims, Arab Christians, and often, albeit not exclusively, by Bahá'ís, Arabic-speakers, Indonesian, Malaysian and Maltese Christians, Mizrahi Jews and Sikhs.
Famous quotes containing the word allah:
“May Allah keep her
And other wives from me. But this young slave
For the Caliph? Well, only her thin mouth to save
My soul I cant forget, nor her slack eyes:
The oasis of age is sand and lies.”
—Allen Tate (18991979)
