Other than being recited daily during prayers, a Muslim reads this expression in every activity of his daily life.
Muslims believe he created the world in six days and sent prophets such as Noah, Abraham, Moses, David, Jesus, and lastly Muhammad, who called people to worship only him, rejecting idolatry and polytheism. The word islam, which means submission, was not at first the name of a religion founded by Muhammad.
It referred, rather, to the original religion of all mankind — and even of the universe itself which, like us, was created to serve Allah. Earlier prophets and their followers were all Muslims submitters to Allahthough Muslims do tend to conflate the general and specific meanings of the words Islam and Muslim.
Their messages and books, however, became corrupted or were lost. Unlike the biblical Yahweh sometimes misread as Jehovahhe has no personal name, and his traditional 99 names are really epithets. Two important titles of Allah occur in a phrase that typically prefaces texts: Allah is also the Master of the Day of Judgment, when the good, especially believers, will be sent to their heavenly reward, and the wicked, especially unbelievers, will be dispatched to hellfire.
In their prayers and on other occasions including battles and street protestsMuslims declare that Allah is the greater than anything else Allahu akbar. All Muslims and most Christians acknowledge that they believe in the same god even though their understandings differ.
Allah is not a trinity of three persons and has no son who was incarnate made flesh as a man. Some Christians therefore deny that Allah is the god they acknowledge. Yet, they seem sure that Jews worship the same god despite similarly rejecting the trinity and the incarnation.
Some will reply that while there are competing interpretations of the one Jesus, God and Allah have different origins. But the argument that Allah cannot be God because he was originally part of a polytheistic religious system ignores the origins of Jewish monotheism and its Christian and Islamic derivatives.
Biblical writers identified the Canaanite high god El with their own god even though he originally presided over a large pantheon. The closely related plural form elohim is used more often in the Bible, but both derive from the same Semitic root as Allah. El and elohim, the New Testament theos hence theologythe Latin deus hence deismand the pre-Christian, Germanic god can all refer both to the Judeo-Christian god and other supernatural beings.
So Jewish, Christian, and Islamic understandings of the divinity originated in polytheistic contexts.
Just like traditional Jews and Christians, however, Muslims believe that the religion of the first humans, Adam and Eve, was monotheistic. Because it was corrupted into polytheism, Allah sent prophets who all taught that there is only one god. Islam took over from Judaism the notion that Abraham in particular was the one who re discovered monotheism and rejected idolatry.سُبْحَانَ اللّهِ ، والْحَمْدُللّهِ ، وَ لا اِلهَ اِلَّا اللّهُ ، وَ اللّهُ اَكْبَرُ - SubhanAllah, walHamdulilah, wa La illaha ilAllahu, waAllahu Akbar (Glory be to Allah, All Praise is for Allah, There is No God but Allah, Allah is the Greatest).
