"Allah! La ilaha illa Huwa (there is no deity except Him has the right to be worshipped), the Ever Living, the One Who sustains and protects all that exists. Neither slumber, nor sleep overtake Him. To Him belongs whatever is in the heavens and whatever is on earth. Who is he that can intercede with Him except with His Permission? He knows what happens to them (His creatures) in this world, and what will happen to them in the Hereafter. And they will never compass anything of His Knowledge except that which He wills. His Kursi extends over the heavens and the earth, and He feels no fatigue in guarding and preserving them. And He is the Most High, the Most Great."
[This Verse 2:255 is called Ayat-ul-Kursi.]
at the begining of this verse here saying there is no god but Allah (the Only One deserves to Be worshipped Alone)
(Allah! La ilaha illa Huwa) its like saying : God, there is no god but Him
and to make you understand more let me put your name in an example by Allah`s willing:
Hiroshi, la nasrani huna illa huwa
Hiroshi, there is no christian here but him
isn`t it clear here that Hiroshi is a name and we are talking about someone his name is Hiroshi?
got the meaning my noble brother?
and this is a proof that the word Allah is a name my respected brother and it is not the only one ,cause if you read the Qur`aan you will find many names and attributes of Allah, Who belongs to Him all Might and Majesty...
as you see in the rest of the verse above too...
like here (59: 22,23,24) :
"هُوَ اللَّـهُ الَّذِي لَا إِلَـٰهَ إِلَّا هُوَ ۖ عَالِمُ الْغَيْبِ وَالشَّهَادَةِ ۖ هُوَ الرَّحْمَـٰنُ الرَّحِيمُ ﴿٢٢﴾ هُوَ اللَّـهُ الَّذِي لَا إِلَـٰهَ إِلَّا هُوَ الْمَلِكُ الْقُدُّوسُ السَّلَامُ الْمُؤْمِنُ الْمُهَيْمِنُ الْعَزِيزُ الْجَبَّارُ
الْمُتَكَبِّرُ ۚ سُبْحَانَ اللَّـهِ عَمَّا يُشْرِكُونَ ﴿٢٣﴾ هُوَ اللَّـهُ الْخَالِقُ الْبَارِئُ الْمُصَوِّرُ ۖ لَهُ الْأَسْمَاءُ الْحُسْنَىٰ ۚ يُسَبِّحُ لَهُ مَا فِي السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالْأَرْضِ ۖ وَهُوَ الْعَزِيزُ الْحَكِيمُ ﴿٢٤ "
"He is the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful. (22) He is Allah than Whom there is La ilaha illa Huwa (none has the right to be worshipped but He) the King, the Holy, the One Free from all defects, the Giver of security, the Watcher over His creatures, the All-Mighty, the Compeller, the Supreme. Glory be to Allah! (High is He) above all that they associate as partners with Him. (23) He is Allah, the Creator, the Inventor of all things, the Bestower of forms. To Him belong the Best Names. All that is in the heavens and the earth glorify Him. And He is the All-Mighty, the All-Wise. (24) "
and not to forget that "Allah" is the same word used by Christian Arabs and Jewish Arabs in their Bible, centuries before Islam came.
The word "Allah" is the perfect description of the "One God" of monotheism for Jews, Christians and Muslims!
Is "Allah" only for Islam and Muslims?
[No! It is for All Three Abrahamic Faiths.]
On page one  of Genesis in the Old Testament, we find the word "Allah" seventeen  times.
"Allah" comes from the Arabic word "elah"a god' or something worshiped. - (Arabic) means '
This word (elah) can be made plural (gods), as in "aleha" and it can be male or female just as the word in English can be "goddess."
"Allah" comes from "elaha" but it brings more clarification and understanding.
Allah = Has no gender (not male and not female)
"He" is used only out of respect and dignity - not for gender
Allah = Always singular - Never plural
"We" is used only as the "Royal WE" just as in English for royalty
Allah = Means "The Only One to be Worshipped"
then surely Allah Is A Name and not any name but The Name of The Only God Has right To Be Worshipped alone with no partners ,The God and Lord of Muslims, Christians, Jewish, all people from other beliefs and every living and non...
