What is the name of allah

The names of Allah


Belief in God is the most important and all-influencing basis of his worldview for the Muslim. Allah, that is not the name of a special god who is only there for Muslims, but Allah is the only rightly worshiped and revered Creator of the universe, who has given these instructions to people since there have been people on this earth. He created men and through his revelation he showed them the best way for them in this world so that they would not be among the losers in the hereafter.

God is absolutely transcendent; nothing is even like Him. God has given every human being the ability to recognize him if he really sincerely searches for him.

Every thinking person finds in nature and in himself many signs that prove the existence of God, and that is why it is said in the revelation of God, the Koran:

And on earth there is for those
who are convinced, signs (from Allah),
and in yourself.
Don't you want to see?

Since God is absolutely transcendent, we are dependent on our own statements about himself, which He gave us through his revelations. Only in this way is it possible for man to grasp him in his dimensions in a meaningful measure with the human mind; man realizes that he only harms himself if he does not succeed in submitting himself completely to Allah. Islam therefore means: complete submission to the will of the One God.

God has many names and attributes, only a few of which he gave us in His Revelation.

Each of His properties has a direct influence at all times on the life of each individual and each community, yes, each creature.

So he is the creator and sustainer of the entire universe; the only one worthy of adoration, and He is the absolute Ruler, according to whose laws every creature and every community must be guided.

Nobody is like Him, and He is the All Hearer, the All Knower
