In translations of Islamic texts, the English word "just" is often used to describe Allah().

What was the original Arabic word? Was that word already in common use at the time of Mohammed? What did it mean, exactly? Is "just" a fair translation, or is the English word loaded with inappropriate meanings that do not apply to Allah()?
