|“||I am the Above All. I am the God of Creation and also the God of Destruction. I am the embodiment of Good and Evil, Light and Darkness, and no words or thoughts can measure my true form or nature. While Yahweh says He Is What He Is, I Am What I Am Not, for I transcend Being. I am Allah, the One and only True God.||„|
|— Allah to Muhammad.|
Allah, also known as The God, is the Supreme Deity in the Islamic religion, known by 99 Names, each one being a quality of God. Allah is also one of the fragments of God, possibly being one of the most powerful primordial entities in all of creation.
Allah is the Supreme God of Islam, being worshiped as the God of Abraham and the Creator of the Universe, possessing power and authority over everything and everyone on every level of existence and nonexistence, being the primordial source of all life and death. The name Allah is considered the name of God in Islam, which literally means The God, although originally that name belonged to another pagan deity.
Allah is worshiped in Islam as the Omnipotent, Omniscient and Omnipresent God, having no limits on what they can or cannot do, being limited by absolutely nothing, neither good nor evil, with Islamics rejecting the concept of incarnation, anthropomorphism and the idea of a personal God. Allah is also considered to exist beyond male and female, having no gender, just being what He Is.
According to traditional Muslim theologians, Allah is described as Eternal, timeless and infinite, having no first, no beginning or end; absolute, not limited by time, place, or circumstance, nor subject to any decree to be determined by any precise limits or definite times, but is the First and the Last. They are not a formed body, nor a substance circumscribed with limits or determined by measure; nor do they resemble bodies, for they are capable of being measured or divided.
Neither substances exist in it; neither are they an accident, nor are accidents in them. Neither are they like anything that exists, nor is anything like them; neither is it determined in quantity, nor comprehended by limits, nor circumscribed by differences of situation, nor contained in the heavens, and transcends spatial and temporal limits, and remains beyond the limits of human understanding and perception.
In some ways, the Islamic view of God is a more accessible view for agnostic people, for Allah is an impersonal unknown God who can be described as just an impersonal force that rules the entire universe, yet they are still its creator and Lord of all, making their existence make more sense to the scientific field of today's world than the personal Christian God.
Allah has never taken a physical form, therefore they have no appearance. This is why Allah has never been described or portrayed with a physical image. Some have theorized that this means that Allah is the closest fragment to its whole; others have theorized that this means that they are one and the same.

Myths and Legends
In the English language, the word generally refers to God in Islam. The word is thought to be derived by contraction from al-ilāh, which means "the god", and is linguistically related to El (Elohim) and Elah, the Hebrew and Aramaic words for God.
The word Allah has been used by Arabic people of different religions since pre-Islamic times. More specifically, it has been used as a term for God by Muslims (both Arab and non-Arab) and Arab Christians. It is also often, albeit not exclusively, used in this way by Bábists, Bahá'ís, Mandaeans, Indonesian and Maltese Christians, and Mizrahi Jews. Similar usage by Christians and Sikhs in West Malaysia has recently led to political and legal controversies.
