Writing the name of Allah Ta'ala in code form

Q: I have a paper where I have written the name of Allah in a kind of code word that upon seeing it is not understandable to anyone. I have written that with pencil. So as I have not written Allah’s name in a proper manner, should I erase it?

A: This is not the name of Allah Ta'ala.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
