in response to reader comment: A different perspective..

This is a silly argument whether Allah and God is the same.

It's about language, not about who Muslims believe Allah is. God is just another word for deity in English and Allah is the word for deity also. God was first use by know Christians; in the epic of Beowulf is the word God was first introduce. Now does that mean it's a pagan word?

And for those who claim that Allah does not love has lied and made ignoramus claim, why? because Allah is known in the Koran as The Fountain of Love, Al-Wadud, also Ar-RAHMAN (the Ever-Merciful), Ar-Rahim (the Ever-Compassionate), As-Salam (the Fountain of Peace) and so on.

As for the Christians who say that "their" God loves everyone; then they must explain the "God" of the Old Testament (was he bi-polar)?, Because the God of the Old Testament was not so loving. Also, if the "God" of the Christians loves everyone---why will he punish non-Christians to eternal damnation? I am sure that hard-cored Evangelicals do not believe that Jews, Muslims, Hindus and others are going to heaven while believing in their "deities".

Judaism, Christianity and Islam believe in a Deity that loves and hates. Loves those who believe in him and hates those who disbelieve in Him. Its all over both Bible and Koran----stop playing like the Bible only talks about a hippie loving god.
