This is simply discovering that our universe's expansion probably is accelerating with time. And as it should be physical cause/force for this acceleration (sorry, no Allah(s) in sight), various mathematical reasons are proposed: non-zero mass of graviton (therefore limited range of gravity, making distant objects move away with higher than under "classic" gravity acceleration), or vacuum energy being converted into kinetic energy via pressure of this energy, or some unknown fifth force comes into play at large distances, etc.

So, do not worry, there IS physical (=mathematical) cause of this acceleration (if the acceleration itself will be reliably confirmed in more observations) and soon or later this reason will be found without attracting Allah or other gods.
