Enter At Your Own Risk:Educational Resources,News Alert,Notes on Understanding Islam,Sunnah,Quran,Kids Fun Web,Arabic Sites
Uses of "Allāh" in phrases
There are many phrases that contain the word Allāh:

Allāhu Akbar (الله أكبر) (God is the greatest)
A'uzu billahi minashaitanir rajim (I seek refuge in Allah from Shaitan, the Damned)
Bismi-llāh (بسم الله) (In the name of God)
Inshā'Allāh (إن شاء الله) (God-willing)
also the origin of the common Spanish interjection "Ojalá", which shares a similar meaning.
probably also the origin of the Portuguese interjection Oxalá, "let's hope for it" or "let's hope that...".
Yā Allāh (يا الله)(Oh God)
may be the origin of the Spanish and Portuguese exclamation "Olé!".
Mā shā' Allāh (ما شاء الله) ([Look at] what God has willed!)
Subhān Allāh (سبحان الله) (Glory be to God)
al-Hamdu li-llāh (الحمد لله) (All praise be to God)
Allāhu A`alam (الله أعلم) (God knows best)
Jazaka Allāhu khayran (جزاك الله خيراً) (May God reward you for your deeds)
"Allāh" appears in a stylized form on the flag of Iran, in the phrase "Allāhu Akbar" on the flag of Iraq, and as part of the shahādah on the flag of Saudi Arabia.

"Allah" is not correctly used as a man's name. See Arabic name#Mistakes made by Europeans and other non-Arabs.

100th Name of God

Muslims teach that there are 99 names for God and that the 100th name is hidden. The idea has become a kind of mystery with little references to what it means. (Mellis J.K.)

Once again, the Hadith about the names of God says:

"Verily, there are ninety-nine names of God, one hundred minus one. He who enumerates them would get into Paradise."

(Sahih Muslim, Vol. 4, p. 1410)
