Did You Know That "Allah" is how you say "God", in Arabic?

 There Are Many Misconceptions About The Word "Allah". Many People Do Not Know "Who", Or, "What",  Allah Is. "Allah" Is An Arabic Word, When Translated Into English, Means: "God", just as  "Dios" means God in the Spanish language when translated into English.  It  is a Matter of language difference rather than difference of deities. When one refers to the word, "Allah", they are speaking of the same God as the  Christians and  The Jews; The God of Prophets:  Abraham, Moses, Noah, Jesus Christ the Messiah, and Muhammad, Peace be upon them all.

 'Allah' is a title for All-Mighty God. The word Allah means, "The God",  in Arabic. It is a combination of 'Ilah', in Arabic, which means "god",  and "al",  the "'alif (a)" and " laam (l)"  letters of the Arabic alphabet which denote the definite article, meaning " the". The word "god" simply means something that is worshiped, but the word "Allah" is used uniquely for "All-Mighty God, who has no partners and is the Only One worthy of worship."  Also the word "Allah" cannot be made plural, like the words "gods and  goddesses" like in the English language,  because All-Mighty God is the One and Only God, and no one is worthy of worship except Allah - All-Mighty God, so it clearly fits the unique attributes of Allah. All prophets that have been sent worshiped only One God, Allah- All-Mighty God.

The Quran, Sura 17:110 says, "Call upon Allah (God), or call upon Rahman (the Most Gracious): By whatever name you call upon Him, (it is well):  For to Him belong the most Beautiful names:
