Alif is the first letter of the word for God in Arabic, Allah. Allah is often understood to be the Greatest Name, as it combines all of the other Names and Qualities within Itself; it is the comprehensive Name. As the alif is written with a single stroke, it is also the number one. It is thus a powerful symbol of the Unity of All Things. God is al-Ahad (the Singular, the One, the Unique).

This arabic letter ’و’ (waw) is oftentimes abbreviated to mean ‘Hu’ or Huwa, which is a name for God in Sufism. Literally, Arabic for “He.”
In Sufism Hu or Huwa is the pronoun used with Allah or God, and is used as a name of God. Allah Hu means “God, Just He!” In Arabic, Allah means God and with Hu, as an intensive added to Allah, means “God himself.” Hu is also found in the Islamic credo La Ilaha Ila Allah Hu: “There is no God but Allah,” or in Sufi interpretation “There is no reality, except God”, or in La Ilaha Ila Huwameaning “There is no god but He”.
