The term Il(u) (or El) is found in many Semitic languages, including Akkadian, Ugaritic, Hebrew, Aramaic, Arabic etc.

The term Ilāh(u) might be a lengthened form of Il(u), and is likewise found in many Semitic languages, as in Arabic, or in Hebrew (= Eloah, plural Elohim).

All the best

Is there a link between “Elohim”, became Allahumma in Arabic and the
famous God “El”, mentioned in Ougariti texts???
Thanks in advance.
