Monotheism (Tawheed) and the unity of God is the core of the Islamic faith. The accuracy of all other beliefs and practices in Islam is examined against monotheism. The term used for God in the Quran is ‘Allah’. The Arabic term Allah has no plural, whereas the English word ‘God’ can be pluralised. Thus, Muslims usually prefer to use ‘Allah’ rather than ‘God’ to emphatically point out the unity of God.
