GOD.. The meaning of God.

(In the name of Allah who most gracious most merciful.)

As you can see there are many religion in this world and i can say that about 99% percent of the religion
is based on faith to the God.And for your information even the small letter "g" and capital letter "G"  in the word of god and God itself will give a different meaning.

What is the meaning of God itself?

I am quoting from "" for the meaning of god.

Tao, the subtle reality of the universe cannot be described, That which can be described in words is mearly a conception of the mind. Although names and descriptions have been applied to it, the subtle reality is beyond the description.
Tao Teh Ching - beginning of chapter 1
The subtle essense of the universe is elusive and evasive.
It is the subtle origin of the whole of creation and non-creation. It existed prior to the beginning of time as the deep and subtle reality of the universe. It brings all into being.
Tao Teh Ching - portions of chapter 21


"There is, O monks, an unborn, unoriginated, uncreated, unformed. Were there not, O monks, this unborn, unoriginated, uncreated, unformed, there would be no escape from the world of the born, originated, created, formed.
"Since, O monks, there is an unborn, unoriginated, uncreated, and unformed, therefore is there an escape from the born, originated, created, formed."
The Gospel of Buddha - Sermon at the bamboo grove at Rajagaha


Neither the multitude of gods nor great sages know of my origin, for I am the source of all the gods and great sages.
A mortal who knows me as the unborn, beginningless great lord of the worlds is freed from all delusion and all evils.
The Bhagavad-Gita - The tenth teaching, verses 2 & 3


There is One, only One Supreme Being, Truth Eternal, Creator of all seen & unseen, Fearless, Without hatred, Timeless Being, Non-Incarnated, Self created, Realized by the Grace of Guru (Perfect Master Only.)
Guru Granth Sahib Page 1


In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.
Genesis 1:1
For thus saith the Eternal that created the heavens; God himself that formed the earth and made it; he hath established it, he created it not in vain, he formed it to be inhabited: I am the self existent One; and there is none else.
Isaiah 45:18


In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God Himself. He was present originally with God. All things were made and came into existence through Him; and without him was not one thing made that has come into being.
Gospel of John 1:1-3


You are the Absolute Existence which causes (our) transient (existences) to appear.
Masnavi - Book 1 - Creator and Creation

Now, a definition of God.
God is the indescribable, uncreated, self existent, eternal all knowing source of all reality and being.

All these are only some of the example of the meaning of God from certain religion for the meaning of god and lastly the writer from the links conclude that the meaning of God is as indescribable, uncreated, self existent, eternal all knowing source of all reality and being.

In Islam what is the meaning of God?? the important things in islam is Ma’rifatullah means knowing Allah.. in arabic the word of god is illah.. We muslim aware of the first "pillars of islam" is the syahadah. 

i am quoting from ""

"The shahada (Arabic: الشهادةaš-šahādah About this sound audio ) (from the verb شهد šahida, “he witnessed”), means “to know and believe without suspicion, as if witnessed, testification”; it is the name of the Islamic creed. The shahada is the Muslim declaration of belief in the oneness of God (tawhid) and acceptance of Muhammad as God’s prophet. The declaration in its shortest form reads:
لا إله إلا الله محمد رسول الله (lā ʾilāha ʾillà l-Lāh, Muḥammadun rasūlu l-Lāh) (in Arabic)
There is no god but Allah(God), Muhammad is the messenger of God. (in English)"

thus the meaning for muslim to said syahadah is to declare or testified that ther is no GOD  but Allah.. but we want to know who is Allah.. how come we belief in islam as though we don't know who is Allah.. but this will be discuss in the next post entitle"Answering the question about Existence of Allah".

thus to conclude the meaning of god,
God is the indescribable, uncreated, self existent, eternal all knowing source of all reality and being.
