Why the term "Allah" is used instead of "God"

Many people ask why the term "Allah" is used instead of "God" and assume it's use implies that Muslims worship a separate God. There is only ONE GOD - a belief held by followers of each of the three main world religions : Islam, Christianity and Judaism.
The Arabic term for "God"
The Arabic word for God is "illah". "Allah" is infact a conjunction of two words (i.e. Al-Ilah):
"Al" which means "The"
"Illah" which means "God"
The reasons for using the term "Allah" in favour of "God" are threefold:
"Allah" has no gender. While, God can be male/female i.e. God/Goddess
"Allah" is ONE and literally means THE GOD, While, God may be singular and plural

i.e. God/Gods and Goddess/Goddesses
"Allah" is the personal name of God as used in the Holy Qur'an and Elohim is used in Hebrew referring Allah, The ending letters 'im' is a plural of respect, majesty and grandeur, without the ending 'im', it becomes

Eloh (Ilah in Arabic)
