In the name of GOD, Most Gracious, Most Merciful
There is no other god beside GOD

Is Allah the same as God?

Question: Who is Allah? Is Allah just another word for God?

Yes, Allah and God are one and the same. Allah is simply the Arabic word for God. Arabic speaking Christians would also use the word "Allah", when referring to God. On the same lines, when using Spanish, we would say "Dios", or in French, "Dieu".

It does not matter what name we use for God, for God Himself says in Quran, to Him belong the most beautiful names.

[Quran 17:110] Say, "Call Him GOD, or call Him Most Gracious; whichever name you use, to Him belongs the best names." ...

[Quran 7:180] To GOD belongs the most beautiful names; call upon Him therewith, and disregard those who distort His names. They will be requited for their sins.

A quick translate on Google, for example, (or Wikipedia) also independently confirms this
