Allah (definition)

From WikiIslam, the online resource on Islam

According to Islam, Allāh is the Creator of the Universe. Allah does not mean 'God' but rather 'the God' and is thus one of the remnants of Islam's pagan origins. In the pre-Islamic era, Allah was the supreme creator god of the Arabs.[1] Yet he was still only one god among the many others they believed in. The goddesses; Allāt (the feminine form of “Allah”, meaning 'the goddess' ),[2][3][4] Manāt, and al-‘Uzzá were Allah's daughters.
