    I don't understand the middle part of your sentence. In any case, here is a rough outline of meaning of al, alle, alles and allen.

    al: already
    al deze: all these
    al die: all those
    alle: all (as an adjective)
    alle mensen: "all people"
    alles: everything
    allen: all (as a noun, typically can only refer to people)
    een voor allen, allen for een: one for all, all for one

    al = already
    alle = all
    alles = everything


    Ik heb haar al gebeld = I already called her.
    Ik heb alle kleren gewassen = I washed all the clothes.
    Ik heb alles gehoord = I heard everything.
