Question: Who or what is Allah? Is he the same god that i as a Catholic worship?


Allah is the name all three monotheistic religions that trace their origins to the patriarch Abraham (pronounced as Ibrahim in Arabic) use, including Jews, Christians, and Muslims. He is the Creator and Sovereign Lord of the cosmos and all of the creation. 
The Qur'an defines God as follows: 
"SAY: "He is the One God: God the Eternal, the Uncaused Cause of All Being. He begets not, and neither is He begotten, and there is nothing that could be compared with Him." (Qur'an: 112:1-4).
