Origin of allah

  • Arabic Allāh al- the ’ilāh god ℵl in Semitic roots

    From American Heritage Dictionary of the English Language, 5th Edition

  • Arabic الله (allāh), contraction of اَل (al) + إِلَه (“ilāh”); cognate with the Hebrew אֵל (él), אֱלוֹהַּ \ אֱלֹהַּ (elóah), and אֱלוֹהִים \ אֱלֹהִים (elohím), ultimately from Proto-Semitic *ʾil-.
