The word "Aalameen" is featured in the beginning verse of Surah Al-Fatiha (Arabic: سورة الفاتحة), opening of the Muslim Holy Quran.

In Islamic philosophy, ʿĀlamīn (عالمين; lit. "worlds") (genitive plural of ʿālam عالم) refers to the Universe, Worlds, or cosmos.[1] This includes humans, plants, animals, earth, stars, jinn and angels.

It is not to be confused with al-ʾAmīn (Arabic: الأمين), meaning 'the trustworthy,' which was one of the nicknames given to Muhammad.
