Allah S.W.T is used by both Arabs and non-Arabs as a term for God by Muslims. Humble submission to his will, divine ordinances and commandments is the pivot of the Muslim faith. “He is the only God, creator of the universe, and the judge of humankind. He is unique (waḥid) and inherently one (aḥad), all-merciful and omnipotent.
In Islamic tradition, there are 99 Names of Allah S.W.T (al-asmā’ al-ḥusná – ‘the best names’ or ‘the most beautiful names’), each of which evoke a distinct characteristic of Allah S.W.T. Among the 99 names of God, the most famous and most frequent of these names are “The Merciful” (ar-Rahman) and “the Compassionate” (ar-Raḥīm).
(سُبْحَٰنَهُۥ وَتَعَٰلَىٰ) S.W.T – “May He be praised and exalted”
