Allah is the Arabic word for God. Although employed by both Arab Christians and Muslims to refer to their deity, Allah is most commonly used to refer to God in the context of Islam. The word Islam means “submission (to God)” and Islam’s sacred text, the Qur’an, is considered by adherents to be the verbatim, inerrant word of Allah. Mohammed is said to be Allah’s latest and most authoritative prophet.
Adherents believe that Allah engages in constant divine intervention in the world – in fact, all events in the universe are said to be a reflection of the will of Allah. Characteristics attributed to Allah generally include: unity, sovereignty, omnipotence, eternalness, and the propensity to reveal Himself as loving and illuminating.
Although the Qur’an is commonly cited as a reference to demonstrate the existence of Allah, this sacred text is not considered to be an inerrant source of knowledge by non-Muslims.
The objective evidence for the existence of Allah is equivalent to that for the existence of the other ~2800 deities in which humans have believed over the millennia – that is, there is none. Furthermore, the claim that Allah exists is undermined by all of the same paradoxes, logical contradictions, and inconsistencies with observable evidence that cause problems for the general claim that a God exists.
In the absence of any evidence or reason to think otherwise, it is reasonable to conclude that Allah – like all other gods – is a mythological entity created by humans.
