Of course not. They are figments of man's imagination to explain what he cannot understand.

The Messenger described Allah, as "His veil is Light, if He unveils it, the Light of His Face will burn all what His Sight reaches (which is everything!)" [Muslim]

Quran 6:103 "No vision can grasp Him, but His grasp is over all vision..."

And if you ask about the Day of Increase (in reward) and the visit of the all-Mighty, all-Wise, and the sight of His Face - free from any resemblance or likeness to anything -(you will see him) as you see the Sun in the middle of the day and the full Moon on a cloudless night,

then listen on the day that the caller will call: 'O People of Paradise! Your Lord - Blessed and Exalted - requests you to visit Him, so come to visit Him!' So they will say: 'We hear and obey!'

Until, when they finally reach the wide valley where they will all meet - and none of them will turn down the request of the caller - the Lord - Blessed and Exalted - will order His Chair(throne) to be brought there. Then, pulpits of light will emerge, as well as pulpits of pearls, gemstone, gold, and silver.

The lowest of them in rank will sit on sheets of musk, and will not see what those who are on the chairs above them are given. When they are comfortable where they are sitting and are secure in their places, and the caller calls: 'O People of Paradise! You have an appointment with Allaah in which He wishes to reward you!' So they will say: 'And what is that reward?Has He not already made our faces bright, made our scales heavy, entered us into Paradise, and pushed us away from the Fire?'

And when they are like that, all of a sudden a light shines that encompasses all of Paradise. So, they raise their heads, and, behold: the Compeller - Exalted is He, and Holy are His Names - has come to them from above them and majestified them and said: 'O People of Paradise! Peace be upon you!' So, this greeting will not be responded to with anything better than: 'O Allaah! You are Peace, and from You is Peace! Blessed are You, O possessor of Majesty and Honor!' So the Lord - Blessed and Exalted - will laugh to them and say: 'O People of Paradise! Where are those who used to obey Me without having ever seen Me? This is the Day of Increase!'

So, they will all give the same response: 'We are pleased, so be pleased with us!' So, He will say: 'O People of Paradise! If I were not pleased with you, I would not have made you inhabitants of My Paradise! So, ask of Me!' So, they will all give the same response: 'Show us your Face so that we may look at it!' So, the Lord - Mighty and Majestic - will remove his covering and will majestify them and will cover them with His Light, which, if Allaah - the Exalted - had not Willed not to burn them, would have burned them.

And there will not remain a single person in this gathering except that his Lord - the Exalted - will speak to him and say: 'Do you remember the day that you did this and that?' and He will remind him of some of his bad deeds in the Worldy life, so he will say: 'O Lord! Will you not forgive me?' So, He will say: 'Of course! You have not reached this position of yours (in Paradise) except by my forgiveness.'

So, how sweet is this speech to the ears, and how cooled are the righteous eyes by the glance at His Noble Face in the Afterlife…

{Some faces that Day will be shining and radiant, looking at their Lord…} (al-Qiyaamah:22-3)

[from the amazing and beautiful book Haadi al-Arwaah ilaa Bilaad il-Afraah by Ibn al-Qayyim, pg. 193] from At-Tibyaan

What is to Islam as Yahweh is to Judaism?

The most common answer to this analogy would be: Allah is to Islam as Yahweh is to Judaism, but this is incorrect for two reasons outlined below. This analogy does not have a proper answer for two major reasons. Firstly, Yahweh is a name that archaeologists have ascribed to Jewish worship that Jews themselves have not accepted as a name of God. They believe the YHVH to be unpronounceable. Secondly, even if we say that Yahweh represents the YHVH, it is the "Name of God", not just the "occupation of being God", i.e. the difference between Zeus (name of a god) and "god of thunder" (occupation of being a god). Muslims do not ascribe a name to their God, so there is no functional equivalent to Yahweh in Islam. Allah is merely the Arabic word for "God" and is therefore a reference to his occupation. The Jewish equivalent of Allah would be El or Elohim.

Yahweh is the Hebrew name for God (the equivalent of Allah for Islam or, well, God for Christians). The people of Israel are very different. They are penguins. ( In answer to the statement above) You have a name, right. God is a title. Yahweh is God's name in Hebrew. In English it's pronouced : JEHOVAH. Like it or not, that's his name. I explained it all in my origianal post, but you couldn't stand it that the truth is his name. Allah does mean God, in Islam, but what is his name in Islam ? Are you male or female. At ant rate are you addressed as this " This is boy or This is girl". Either one of these are have a name and so does the creator..Yahweh, or Jehovah; is his.

Is Allah the same as Yahweh?

Allah is the short form of the Arabic for 'the God', and is written in Arabic in the Koran, the Holy Book of the Islamic faith.The English word 'God' is elohim in Hebrew.In the Bible, The Almighty 'elohim', the Creator, has a personal name. In the Jerusalem Bible it says that his personal name is 'Yahweh'. See Jeremiah 16:19-21, Psalm 83:18. (Other translations may use other English words to translate the Hebrew ' יהוה ' /YHWH)The form of worship that the Jews in the Bible gave/give to Yahweh is different from the customary style of worship given to Allah by practicers of Islam.e.g. The Hebrew sabbath is Friday evening to Saturday evening. The Muslim sabbath is on 'gathering day', i.e. Friday.In some parts of the world there is significant conflict between worshippers of Allah and worshippers of Yahweh. It would seem, therefore, that they are evidently not all worshipping the same god.For more information, see 'Related questions' and 'Related links' below.
