Why do "Arab Christians and Jews say Allah?

FATEEN 2009/09/25 23:08:01
There has been much discussion and debate yet there are many Evangelicals, Mormons, Catholics, Protestants, Baptists, etc. (Man those are alot of sects who cannot even agree on the interpretation of the same Book) that Allah is God.

Allah” is the Arabic word for “God” and has been so long before the existence of Islam. The names “Allah” and “God” are generally interchangeable within the Muslim religion and in Middle Eastern cultures. Some English translations of the Qu’ran ) use the name “God,” others use“ Allah.” This sometimes comes as a surprise to Christians who were raised in Western cultures. Among former Muslims, many converts to Christianity commonly refer to God as “Allah.” (This is despite the fact that they recognize clear differences in the character of God as described by the Bible compared to Islamic writings. For example, although both Christians, Muslims and Jews firmly believe there is only one God, Christians have the additional doctrine of the Trinity.)

Of course, the word “God” does not actually appear in the original Hebrew or Greek manuscripts of the Bible, accepted as Holy by both Christians and Muslims. “God” is an old English word which developed from an Indo-European word, meaning “that which is invoked,” which is also the ancestor of the German word Gott (meaning: God).


The Navigators, a well-known evangelical Christian organization, published the following:

“…It’s interesting to observe that, in rejecting the Athenian’s erroneous concept of God, Paul did not reject the word they used for God, Theos, which was the common Greek word for God.

Some Christians unthinkingly say 'Allah is not God.' This is the ultimate blasphemy to Muslims, and furthermore, it is difficult to understand. Allah is the primary Arabic word for God. It means 'The God.' There are some minor exceptions. For example, the Bible in some Muslim lands uses a word for God other than Allah (Farsi and Urdu are examples). But for more than five hundred years before Muhammad, the vast majority of Jews and Christians in Arabia called God by the name Allah. How, then, can we say that Allah is an invalid name for God? If it is, to whom have these Jews and Christians been praying?

And what about the 10 to 12 million Arab Christians today? They have been calling God ‘Allah’ in their Bibles, hymns, poems, writings, and worship for over nineteen centuries. What an insult to them when we tell them not to use this word ‘Allah’! Instead of bridging the distance between Muslims and Christians, we widen the gulf of separation between them and us when we promote such a doctrine. Those who still insist that it is blasphemy to refer to God as Allah should also consider that Muhammad’s father was named Abd Allah, ‘God’s servant,’ many years before his son was born or Islam was founded!”

    I am Arabic Christian. We say ALLAH like any other Arabs because Arabic is our native language. Before Islam was revealed, Arab Christians used the name ALLAH, in the 5th century. Allah in my understanding is just like the english word for God. It is not exclusive to any one faith. If you ask an Arab Muslim how to say Allah in English, they will say GOD. If you ask a European Christian how to say God in Arabic they say ALLAH. If you ask me to say God in Aramaic, I say Elah. Its not really that complicated.

    Muslims are abominable giving the illusion that they have mercy or are for peace, but they lie endlessly. Leviticus 19:11: Ye shall not steal, neither deal falsely, neither lie one to another.
    Colossians 3:9-11.1 Timothy 4:4:1Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils; 2Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron; 3Forbidding to marry, and commanding to abstain from meats, which God hath created to be received with thanksgiving of them which believe and know the truth. 4For every creature of God is good, and nothing to be refused, if it be received with thanksgiving: 5For it is sanctified by the word of God and prayer.

    Muslims are the verse below.
    Proverbs, 6: 16,These six things doth the LORD hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto him:
    17A proud look. Muslims have that. A lying tongue. Muslims have that. Hands that shed innocent blood. Muslims do that.
    18An heart that deviseth wicked imaginations. Muslims have that.
    Feet that be swift in running to mischief. Muslims do that.
    19A false witness that speaketh lies. Muslims are good at lying. He that soweth discord among brethren. Muslims live to sow discord.

    No one disputes the fact that Arab Christians today refer to God as Allah. What we need, however, to know is that the name Allah is not original Arabic name for God. Note that Arabs descend from Abraham, the first Hebrew. Ishmael, the ancestor of Arabs never called God Allah but Elohim according to what his father called Him. In fact Ishmael himself was a Hebrew because Abraham became a Hebrew before Ishmael's birth.

    Now the word God/Elohim is not a name but a title, hence the use of God for Jehovah/YHWH and gods for idols and humans (Psalms 82:6a).

    How then did Arabs adopt the name (not title) Allah? We all know that the name Allah was not given to humans by angelic revelation as Muhammad, Islam's prophet, wants to make us believe. The name Allah was already in the family of Muhammad. His grandfather Abdul Mutallib bore this name in Abdul, meaning servant god. Abdul Mutallib named his son Abd Allah Mutallib (Abd Allah also meaning servant god). It was this servant god who bore (biologically) Muhammad who later claimed that he had seen an angel who told him that he was sent by Allah (literally, his own biological father who died aged 25 even before the birth of Muhammad) to reveal Allah to mankind through Muhammad. Muhammad needn't angelic revelation if the name Allah was ...

Muhammad needn't angelic revelation if the name Allah was the name Arabs knew for God neither was Muhammad's use of the sword been necessary to brutally compel Arabs to worship Allah.

    Now note that servant god and servant of god do not mean the same thing. Servant god means a god with a stature equal to a servant whereas servant of God refers to someone who serves God. What Muhammad did, with aid the of the sword, was impose upon Arabs his biological father. With the passage of time (since about 600AD) all Arabs have been indoctrinated to accept that God has always been known as Allah by Ishmaelites. Ishmael's Hebrew language over time was killed in his descendants through their rebellion against God(YHWH) and intermarriages. Arabic names for god such as Hubal and 359 other gods did not die out but only subordinated to Allah.

    You may also note that both Abdul Mutallib and Abd Allah Mutallib were idol worshipers and at no time were these Muslims. These characters worshiped 360 gods at a shrine called Ka'aba which they themselves made. On this shrine they sacrificed the children as did the Moabites (Lot's descendants)....remember these were children of incest..and it's from this that we have people aborting their unborn children, which is a curse. So if Abd Allah means servant of God (and not servant god), which god was this? Was this god holy, just, almighty, omnipresent, omnipotent, all knowing? Who could be served by such idol worshipers such as Abdul and Abd Allah?

    Lela, when the Europeans went to Arab territories, they name told the Arabs the God in Arabic was Allah. They were told by the locals that God in Arabic was Allah. For instance, the Lunda people put the name Nzambi in the Lunda Bible. The name Nzambi did not come from the Europeans but from the locals. It's Allah which has been accepted by Arabs to mean God, Hubals and the other 359 gods Abdul and Abd Allah Mutallib worshiped have died out in the vocabulary of most of the ordinary Arabs, though Islam's clergy such as Mullas, Hacis, Sheiks etc know too well that Islam is about the worship of Baal represented by 360 gods, hence the symbol of crescent moon on top of every Mosque, Islamic literature, Islamic States' flags, and is synonymous with Islam's month of Ramadan.

    To be continued.

    Allah is Satan in his character. He is a bright angel that is the epitome of evil. Muslims are as evil to people as the sun would be to all life had the atmosphere be absent killing all life. The atmosphere gives the illusion that the sun is our friend just like the lies from Muslims saying they were our friend being for peace or were moderate. Satan is the liar. Why won’t Muslims repent of following a liar? The liar Satan will lose everything gaining nothing. They are planing to kill American school children like people at the fair shoot ducks in the shooting gallery. They need to get a broken and contrite heart so they do not do that. After that they need to annihilate all that they call holy.

    We understand it that way, however, Allah is not YHWH. You may refer to God as Allah but Allah shall never be the same as YHWH. Ask Muslims in Malaysia. They do not allow Christians there to refer to God as Allah though their Arabic Bibles have Allah for God.

    Wrong. That's an evangelical Christian fantasy from a Jack Chick comic. It's completely baseless. "Allah" is derived from the same root as "El" & "Elohim." The crescent moon image of Islam originated in the Middle Ages, not from a pre-Islamic pagan religion.

    Because of this Sovereignty, these attributes, this creation, these blessings, He is the only One Who is deserving of praise and thanks and sincere worship, to the exclusion of all others:
    "Surely, your Lord is Allaah Who created the heavens and the earth in six Days and then rose over (Istawa) the Throne (really in a manner that suits His Majesty), disposing the affair of all things. No intercessor (can plead with Him) except after His Leave. That is Allaah, your Lord; so worship Him (Alone). Then, will you not remember?" [Yoonus 10:3 – interpretation of the meaning]
    He created (everything) then proportioned it, He ordained laws then granted guidance, He granted provision and made people independent of means:

    Fighting for acceptance? With their 360 gods worshiped at Ka'aba, a shrine made by infidel Abdul Mutallib nothing will change that Allah is a name in Muhammad's family. He whom you worship as Allah is Abd Allah Mutallib, Muhammad's biological father. Muhammad never received the name of Allah by angelic revelation...he just got it from his father, an idol worshiper like himself.

    You are a total liar. Islam was started by Muhammad about 568-600 AD. Even the name Allah he got from his biological father Abd Allah Mutallib. Allah was/is no God at all. Allah is as impotent as as any dead thing and much inferior to an ant.

    In fact it were the Roman Catholics who hatched this murderous religion of a fake god called Allah. These are as idol worshipers as Muslims. Muslims worship 360 gods at a shrine built by idol worshiper Abdul Mutallib, grand father of Muhammad. The crescent moon is an object of worship in the Roman Catholic Church as it's in Islam. Fatima, step daughter of Muhammad, is also worshiped by the Roman Catholics. Remember the black stone rev erred by Muslims symbolizes Baal worship..this stone Muslim pilgrims to Mecca collect at the end of each Haci.

    Question, if I where an 'Arab living in an 'Arab speaking land or an Israeli living in an 'Arab land how would I say God in 'Arabic?

    Answer: Allah

    Despite your comment in all caps as if your learned on the subject your wrong. I don't even know why I'm responding to your comment in the first place your going to think what you want to think anyway.

    When in doubt ask Shaykh Google. Most people on here are nothing but a bunch of Googler's and Yahooer's anyway.

    ALLAH IS NOT THE GOD OF THE JEWS. ALLAH IS A DEMON FROM HELL. NOT BECAUSE MUHAMMED SAID IT, ITS TRUE, BESIDES MUHAMMED WAS NOTHING MORE THAN A PEDOPHILE WITH THE ABILITY TO FOOL IDIOTS LIKE YOU

    well they all meant the same thing.

    “Lighthouses are more useful than Churches.”

    - Ben Franklin

    “This would be the best of all possible worlds if there was no religion in it.”

    -John Adams

    “Christianity is the most perverted system that ever shone on man.”

    Islam is indisputably paganism. The symbol of Baal is on top of every Mosque. Abdul and Abd Allah Mutallib were idol worshipers and it's these Allahs who were turned into a god and worshiped by 1.2 billion infidel muslims.

    Why don't you look at the response from Lela listed above who says she's an 'Arab Christian.

    It's all about language. If you say cup in English you don't say cup in Spanish you say taza.

    Your blinding with biased views which are making it difficult probably to see what I am saying despite how simple.

    MY VIEWS ARE NOT BIASED THEY ARE FACT. JUST LOOK IT UP OR FOR ONCE IN YOUR LIFE READ A BOOK (NOT THE FOOLISH KORAN). ALLAH IS NOT MY GOD BY NO MEANS, I DON'T BOW TO DEMONS.

    Allah MEANS God in Arabic! It's not an Islam-specific term! It predates Islam! For goodness' sake, do you really think "God" is your deity's name?

    It is not just language. We are talking about the origin of the name Allah. Was Allah not Muhammad's father's name? If it was a language issue. Christians call themselves Christians in their own languages. We call ourselves Christians in English but not, say, in Chinese. I don't think the Arabic word for Christianity is Islam, or the Arabic word for Church is Mosque. The God of Abraham, Isaac and Israel is definitely not called Allah in Arabic otherwise there would be no killings between Muslims/Arabs and Jews based on religion. Islam is also not the word for Judaism in Arabic. So Fatteen, how does Allah become the God of Christians or Jews? Allah is the god for Muslims, though the Creator of all of us is YHWH, the Elohim of Abraham, Isaac, and Israel.

    Any one who has no Christ is damned. There is no salvation in Allah, or any religion. Salvation is (only) in Jesus. Answer these questions, Mr. Fateen.

    Any African who converts to Islam is a fool, doing so for money or does not know that Muslims (Arabs) regard Africans as slaves and refer to Africans as black slaves.

Ask North Sudan and they will tell you that South Sudanese are are ants. These Arabs are contemporary slave masters of Africans. These slave raiders, during the slave trade, raided African villages killing men, women and children they perceived to be weak to survive a journey to Saudi Arabia...leaving some surviving African babies suckling from the remains of their dead mothers..and male who arived in Saudi Arabia, they castrated so they died with the seed..hence we have no many Africans in Arab-lands. Compare to the US, Britain. Go to Mauritania, you will find Arabs as Muslims still enslaving Africans.

    Fateen, you are a slave of sin as much as you are also a slave of Arab-Muslims. They send you to die as suicide/terrorists.. and as a slave you are obedient to death. You are a big fool, period. Why not let them (Arabs) die for their cause? Allah is not the God of Africans. Ours is the God of Abraham, Isaac and Israel. Wake up, Fateen, and revert to your African name.

    That's completely baseless. There is no scholarship to indicate that to be the case, and an avalanche demonstrating otherwise. The Allah-as-pagan-god-name idea is a creation of US evangelical Christians, from whole cloth.

    Joseph Samson Shikabonga, now you can see that all you have believed in is a lie. Allah is not the God of the Jews. Muslims worship 360 gods at Ka'aba shrine which idol worship Abdul Mutallib made. Keep on deceiving yourself that Allah is God, it's your choice.

    I do not say allah as the name of the One God. Why? Fatah ul bari. The OLDER the book in the arabic the better .. pre- 1950's ... the newer the book..hadith or qur'an ..the more alterations ( lies ) to change what Muhammed said to make him seem more benevolent than he ever was... ...


    Also.. Muhammed claims co-owner status with God ..thus making himself a partner to God who needs and has ZERO partners, eh? V4 Bk53 N392 ( Bukhari )
    Abu Huraira stated for the recording While we were all in Mosque the Prophet came out and said, "Let us approach the Jews" and we went out until we reached the Bait ul Midras. The Prophet said to them, "If you submit to Islam and Allah's Prophet, you will be safe. You should know that the earth belongs to Allah and His Apostle, and I want to expel you from this land. So, if any among you owns some property, he is permitted to sell it, otherwise you should know that the Earth belongs to Allah and His Apostle." Hmmmm.. long long before Muhammed came to be , God said God alone owns and makes all that is , shall be, and has ever been ..and God said God never changes His Mind.

    So one must ask watching Muhammed make claim after claim .. who did Muhammed want everyone else to believe he was? Muhammed made himself partner with God, though God needs an...

    So one must ask watching Muhammed make claim after claim .. who did Muhammed want everyone else to believe he was? Muhammed made himself partner with God, though God needs and wants no slaves and has already said He has NO partners. Isn't it odd how often Muhammed contradicts himself time after time?

    Muhammed commands men to never appear naked before one another yet , he himself naked approaches a man and drags his garment behind him as he approaches the man and all Muhammed is wearing according to the hadith is a large smile. Hadith constantly show accurately the words Muhammed said and his own deeds do not match the original commands of God and that Muhammed keeps pretending in defiance of God Himself that God constantly changed the original commands to suit Muhammeds whims....

    I even recall one hadith where it was said Muhammeds personal satan had left him ( he was no longer bewitched ) and he no longer was receiving any more revelations.. eh? Muhammed even admitted he had at times been bewitched.. So since God did kick evil angels out of the heavens to the earth... it is entirely probable that Muhammeds "gabriel" was one of the liars..especially in the knowledge of fact that Muhammed taught that lying is ok now ..though God said originally bear NO false witness ...thus again Muhammed dfies the one God and claims God changes His Mind again.. why? To protect Muhammeds own rear end.

    Why do any of you trust him? He is only a sinner, not God ... not perfect..not good. God alone is perfect and good and has NO sin. Why would God partner Himself with a man like Muhammed? God Himself said He has NO partners , yet time and again Muhammed keeps saing he owns this and that with God ... Muhammed himself demands all of islam know God has NO partners..then makes himself partner to God.. absolutely astounding to me islam does not see the absolute hypocrisy in this? The qur'an lies about God and about Muhammmed and about the Christ.

    It is wisdom to CEASE seeing a book as "holy" and see all books and religions for what they are... tools to use to insert oneself using emotional control over others via lies about God.. very unwise to lie about God since He said ..bear NO false witness...
