Although the phrase "Allahu Akbar" (الله أكبر) is a common phrase used by all Muslims in various situations, including the [[Salah]] (obligatory five [[prayers]] a day) ==Difference between Allah and has even been used in the past by some [[non-Muslims]] as a show of support for the protesting [[Iran|Iranians]], it is widely associated with the Muslims who shout it whilst engaged in [[Terrorism|Jihad]]. Many people claim it is simply the [[Arabic]] translation of a common English phrase meaning "God is great!" This article analyzes this apologetic claim by examining the use of the phrase in [[Islam and Scripture|scripture]], and the use of these words in their original Arabic.Ilah==
==Analysis== ===Allah=== '''Claim:''' 'Allah' is simply the Arab word for 'God.' '''Fact:''' 'God' in Arabic is translated 'ilah,' not 'Allah.'  '''Allah''' = <font size="6"><font color="red">الله</font> </font><font size="4">(</font>alif <font size="4">ا</font>, lam <font size="4">ل</font>, lam <font size="4">ل</font>, ha <font size="4">ه)</font>===
'''ilah''' =<font size="6"><font color="blue"> اله</font> </font><font size="4">(</font>alif <font size="4">ا</font>, lam <font size="4">ل</font>, ha <font size="4">ه)</font>
The [[Shahadah]] is one of the [[Five Pillars of Islam|five pillars of Islam]], and is recited by all Muslims:
'''Literal:''' There is no <font color="blue">god</font> but <font color="red">Allah</font> and Muhammad is the messenger of <font color="red">Allah</font>.}}
As you can see, even though many English speaking Muslims claim it states The phrase is commonly mistakenly translated to "there There is no god but God."However, this is not the case. Muslims view in Islam the name Allah as a proper noun, as opposed to a common noun descriptive applicable to any deity. Allah is not the generic word for 'god' in Arabic, but the ''name'' of Islam's deity.
{{Quote|[ The Risala of 'Abdullah ibn Abi Zayd al-Qayrawani]<BR>A Treatise on Maliki Fiqh (Including commentary from ath-Thamr ad-Dani by al-Azhari)(310/922 - 386/996)|['''1.1a'''] The belief that Allah is One is the fundamental basis of Islam, and when Divine Unity is expressed, '''the name "Allah" must be used. It is not permissible to say, "There is no god but the Almighty"''' or use any other names except Allah for the shahada. Nothing at all resembles Him or is equal to Him.}}
