[The holy Quran17:110] Say, "Call Him Allah, or
call Him the Most Gracious (Rahman); whichever name you use, to Him belongs
the best names." You shall not utter your Contact Prayers (Salat) too
loudly, nor secretly; use a moderate tone.
[20:8] Allah: there is no other god besides Him.
To Him belong the most beautiful names.
is Allah/God/Rahman etc.?
[2:255] Allah: there is no other god besides Him,
the Living, the Eternal. Never a moment of unawareness or slumber overtakes
Him. To Him belongs everything in the heavens and everything on earth. Who
could intercede with Him, except in accordance with His will? He knows their
past, and their future. No one attains any knowledge, except as He wills.
His dominion encompasses the heavens and the earth, and ruling them never
burdens Him. He is the Most High, the Great.
Allah has many other attributes too but several
crucial attributes are mentioned in the verse[2:255].
is the Creator of the Universe and everything (nonliving and living beings
including human) within it. Therefore, as long as we are attributing correct
attributes of Allah, we can definitely call Him God as per the verse
[17:110]. The verse [17:110] clearly tells us, we don't need to call Him
Allah always; He has many other beautiful names. Personally when I remember
God, I call Him Allah but that is my personal choice and satisfaction.
