衍宜 I am sorry but in no way would a Muslim call Allah, God the Father--they believe that God could not have produced a Son,and refuse to use the term "Son of God"

衍宜 While I do not dispute about the propriety of using the term "Allah" interchangeably in Arabic countries for the term "God", I do consider that the spirit that entered the prophet was an evil spirit and that evil spirit is what has become Allah to Mohammed and his devotees. This argument cannot be about semantics alone, but also the troubling connection of evil spirit with the words used for God. The organic connection at the time of the visions described in the Qur'an was not with who the Hebrews and Christians knew as God. That which was not God became known as Allah.

Some of the other comments on this video say that "Allah" is a pagan spirit and shouldn't be used to refer to God. In actual fact, "Allah" is just the Arabic word for God, like "God" is the English word for God and in fact the word "God" in its Germanic roots was pagan. "Allah", on the other hand, has more legitimacy Biblically-speaking because it is the Arabic cognate of the Hebrew word Elohim found in the Old Testament. Millions of Christians all over the world speaking languages as diverse as Arabic and Malay call God the Father "Allah". It is an insult to them to say that "Allah" is a pagan spirit or a moon god or anything like that.

Are you referring to Allen Warren's claim that Allah is a pagan spirit? Actually, Allah is the Arabic word for God. It's even more legitimate to refer to the Elohim in the Hebrew Bible as Allah than to use the pagan Germanic word "God" like we do in English, for Allah is an Arabic cognate of the Hebrew word Elohim!

Allah is the Arabic word for God. Allah is an Arabic cognate for Elohim (used in the original Hebrew of the Old Testament to refer to God.) See http://www.krisispraxis.com/archives/2010/01/why-use-allah-and-tuhan-official-explanation-from-indonesian-bible-society/ for example.

Quoting from the above link: From the linguistic perspective, one cannot deny that the terms ’ELOHIM, ’ELOAH dan ’EL are connected with the root ’L, the god who was worshipped in the ancient Semitic world. EL, ILU or ILAH are related general forms that were used to refer to the highest god. The ancient Israelites apparently used the term that was used by the nations around them. Does this mean that they were followers of polytheism? Of course not! The ancient Israelite people had a new understanding of these words. The one they worshipped was the one and only Creator of heaven and earth. This very same process is still going on whenever the Word of the Lord reaches various tribes and cultures all over the world. Some groups who reject the term “Allah”, in fact, are of the opinion that the term “Allah” should not be found at all in the Bible used by Christians. Some give the reason that “Allah” is the name of the Lord worshipped by Muslims. There are also those who connect the term with the gods of the Arab people. If this position were correct, then certainly ’EL, ’ELOAH and also ’ELOHIM would have to be removed from the Hebrew Bible! In addition, some inscriptions that were found in the sixth century show that the word “Allah” was used by Orthodox Christians before the birth of Islam. Up to the present time, Christians in countries such as Egypt, Iraq, Algeria, Jordan and Lebanon still use the term “Allah” in their Bibles. So the word “Allah” cannot be claimed to be the property of only one religion.

If the Qur'an teaches that Jesus was a prophet, then why would a prophet of God lie that he is the son of God, the Christ? shouldn't the Qur'an have written that he was a false prophet if they did not believe he is Christ, our God? A prophet of God is suppose to be a good person that gives a messages from God that the prophet has received personally from God. So all Qur'an believers trust your prophet when He says He is the Messiah, the Redeemer, our Salvation, the son of God!

Yes, you're correct, Linda. And furthermore, Allah is a more suitable word for God than "God" -- God has pagan roots, while Allah is a cognate of Elohim. http://www.krisispraxis.com/archives/2010/01/why-use-allah-and-tuhan-official-explanation-from-indonesian-bible-society/

http://www.krisispraxis.com/archives/2009/11/allah-is-not-a-definite-name/ It is bad enough when the Malaysian government bans Christians from using the word Allah. It is worse when some misguided Christians (granted it is a small minority) agree that Muslims have sole proprietary rights to the word Allah, even though this capitulation amounts to surrendering their centuries old usage of the word Allah for worship and spiritual instructions. Perhaps this capitulation results from a misunderstanding of Arabic grammar, that is, the view that Allah is a personal name. Allah, as such, refers solely to the individual Supreme Being whom Muslims (and no other believers) worship. Accepting this misunderstanding would give grounds to the Muslim’s (still contestable) demand that only they have the right to use the word Allah and its related terms.Such a capitulation must be vigorously resisted seeing how the Malaysian government unrelentingly prosecutes its ban against Christians using the word Allah. It is imperative that we analyze and correct this misunderstanding.

Hi, Allen. Allah is a contraction of al-Illah "the God". Illah is the Arabic cognate of Elohim, Hebrew for God. So Arab-speaking Christians are totally correct in referring to God the Father as Allah. Arab-speaking Christians have been calling God the Father Allah centuries before Muhammad.
