Ela is a deity.

In the creation of Heaven and Earth the custodial duties of the angels were also divided and separated from that of the messengers, so that while angels were limited to duties in heaven, the messengers were confined to duties on earth.

Deities belong in heaven, Orishas belong on earth.

Ela is one of the deities or angels in heaven.

Ela was the name designation of the custodial deity of Kaabah in pre-Islamic times. Its name and rites of worship were copied wholesale into Islamic rites of worship.

That name was changed to Alla -Hu, which became Allah. The HU is a differentiator. This AllaHu is above the post and essense of deities or angelic beings, he is accorded the position of GOD, whereas Ela can fittingly be called a god. All gods bow to the ONE GOD.

The name and letters of ALLA itself posesses a potent esoteric formula in the sense that it is a root element for duality in nature and creation.All esoteric formulas are based on the foundation of duality and the manipulation of their place value on a paradoxical scale.

ALLA is used by Muslim Sufis in a zikhr dance or chant to invoke energy and potency in natural elements.

Ela is an essence and the opener of gateways in Ifa divination.

Ela is GOD himself if one understands the sublime wisdom in IFA corpus,where historical information about creation was made manifest. According to the corpus ,Ela is GOD. This is because Ela was spoke word in the chaotic void,which brought forth the LIFE. Ela is the ORO that connects humanity to GOD.
