Reader comment on item: Is Allah God?
in response to reader comment: Our dear Muhammad rabina yahmiduhu and what proof?

Submitted by Muhammad (Australia), Jul 29, 2007 at 05:41

"But wait: are you also aware that Muhammad or is it your Allah or is it Gabriel "borrowed" the word Allah from Syriac Alaha (Allaha in Nestorian)? And no Allah is not a conraction of al-Ilah!"

According to your claim I wanted proof on the following 2 points-

1. Muhammad (peace be upon him) "borrowed" the word from Syriac Alaha -- According to this, "ALLAH" was never used in Arabic before Muhammad (peace be upon him). He is the one borrowed this term to Arabic.... Right?

--- I wanted proof for this.

2. ALLAH (not including Gabriel [peace be upon him] as he only follows the command of ALLAH) "borrowed" the word from Syriac Alaha -- He is ALLAH who created the heavens and earth and everything in between, Whom English speaking people call "The God", some Christians say "Father in Heaven". He is the one who created Jews, Christians, Muslims, Hindus and all people who believe in Him and those who do not believe in Him. He is the one who created the languages and the color. How can He borrow a word when He is the Creator of Everything?

--- I wanted proof for this.

3. "And no Allah is not a conraction of al-Ilah!" -- I will leave it to those people who do research in languages. Because, it doesn't matter if we call Him by "The Merciful" or by "The Beneficent", rather it does matter whether we follow the Straight way prescribed by Him or not. Because that will allow us to enter the Kingdom of Heaven.

May The Creator of everything show mercy on me.

Muhammad
