The definition of Allah is combined in two- Al-which is definite article of known identity that define like this- I saw a man or I saw the man which differentiate the former to be any kind of man while the later makes clearly specific man.the second part is ilah which means God that is to be worshiped whether he deserved being worshiped or not so Al+ilah=Allah.Since Allah is the creator of the heavens and the earth, He deserved to be worshiped alone.

ALLAH is the god of Muslim's , HE is the owner of the whole universe.
ALLAH is an Arabic Proper Noun, it is the name the creator, owner and sustainer of the Universe used for himself.

Because we can't imagine the infinite one let us seek his own words from the last Revelation he sent 'The Quraan', thru his last Prophet Muhammad Sallalahu alahi Wa Sallam(may peace be upon him)

112.001 Say: He is Allah, the One! �

112.002 Allah, the eternally Besought of all! �

112.003 He begetteth not nor was begotten. �

112.004 And there is none comparable unto Him. � �

He further defines himself:

059.022 He is Allah, than Whom there is no other God, the Knower of the Invisible � and the Visible. He is the Beneficent, Merciful. � �

059.023 He is Allah, than Whom there is no other God, the Sovereign Lord, the Holy � One, Peace, the Keeper of Faith, the Guardian, the Majestic, the Compeller, the � Superb. Glorified be Allah from all that they ascribe as partner (unto Him). � �

059.024 He is Allah, the Creator, the Shaper out of naught, the Fashioner. His are the � most beautiful names. All that is in the heavens and the earth glorifieth Him, and He � is the Mighty, the Wise. �

Allah is Arabic and simply means '[the]God'.
