The Divine & sacred words : RAM and ALLAH

One of the favourite prayers of Bapu has been " Raghupati Raghav Raja Ram Patit pawan Sita Ram.  Eeshwar Allah Tere Naam, Sabko sanmati de Bhagwan." 

From this divine prayer, I would like to stress on two sacred words "Ram" and "Allah" which, in true sense, are no simple words but are the eternal source of positive energy. 

Many interpretions have been made of these words by distinguished sages, seers, but as a layman what I understand , i would like to share with my friends & colleagues. 

In vernacular language  Hindi, "Ram" is the opposite of "Mara" (i.e. Dead) and, therefore, repetition of "Ram" (Mantra) fills our body and mind every time with positive energy i.e. "Life" or  "Pran" 

As regards, "Allah" I hardly have any authority to make any interpretation of this divine word but once, while repeating "Allah"   I have had a wonderful feeling. See, the Hindi Varnamala (Alphabets) starts from the vowel "a" and ends at "ha" leaving apart the composite letters like Ksha, Tra, Gya.  In other words, the divine word "Allah" encompasses the complete Hindi varnamala from start to end. Does it mean that our whole "Vaak Shakti" (Speech power) can be attributed to this sacred divine word?

I am no Seer, Sage, Teacher or Preacher, nor do I have any authority to comment upon such like complex terms but as an ordinary  learner I would certainly like to share my feelings with others as I always feel that religious connotations are made to strengthen the harmonious relationship with our Creater and His creation i.e. the Nature, irrespective of our Nationalities.

Gandhi discovered throughout his life, a living God, full of love andwisdom, who lived in her heart and spoke with an inner voice. Inthis God also found in men and women around him. Discovered asa God who brings in an ashram and taught to walk together in search of Truth, each from their religion and thought. Thisencounter with the God-filled life is transforming people and their environment around them. Political action is discovered andpracticed since the meeting of these people. He discovered that the life that God transformed everything around him. Repeating thatsentence made ​​him attuned to the transformative power of the world, which is love. That path would allow to discover the truthtogether and transform the world into the real political action.

Your interpretation of the 'Allah' word beginning from A and ending on H sound is interesting. However, maulanaa Abul Kalam Azad has analysed the name 'Allah' as Al+ Lah where Al is article like THE. and Lah is wonder. So Allah is The Wonder. Bhafgavdgita describes  the Supreme Being in these words: While some SEE Him as The Wonder,  some HEAR Him  as The Wonder... So the basic concept of God remains the same in all religions.
