"Bismil-Lah" (In the Name of God) before initiating any action.
Muslims repeat it during prayers, before eating, before reading, before
studying, ...etc. It can be noticed that all chapters of the Quran start
with the sentence : "Bismil-Lahir-Rahmanir-Raheem" (In the Name of God,
the Most Merciful, the Ever Merciful ). The extra words after "In the Name
of God" are Attributive Names of God. The Quran contains 99 Attributive
Names of God. The following is an excerpt from chapter 59, verses 22 to
24, lists just a few:
(23) He is Allah, other than whom there is no other God, the Sovereign Lord, the Holly One, the Peace, the Keeper of Faith, the Guardian, the Majestic, the Compeller, the Superb, Glorified be Allah from all that they ascribe as partner (to Him) !
(24) He is Allah, the Creator, the Shaper out of nothing, the Fashioner, His are the most beautiful names. All that is in the heavens and earth glorifies Him, and He is Almighty, the Wise."
( Translation of the Quran
___Muslims use the word "Allah" for the English word "God". They do not believe that Allah is 'their' God only, or that He is 'a god'. The Islamic message revolves around the beleif in One and only One God, Who is Perfect, nothing is similar to Him, and He has no equal or associates in His power.
