Our dear Zzazz wrote this little gem

>Actually, the word "Allah" is the DEFINITE form of "ilah". al-ilah is elided together to become Allah, meaning 'the God". The plural form is "allahuma", which is very similar to the Hebrew "Elohim".

What are you talking about? The word al-Ilah means THE GOD and the word Allah means God and not the God. And you know what? If you are correct which you are not If there is a plural for the word Allah it must be al-Aliha after all as per your little bogus theory Allah is a contraction of the word al-Ilah

And allahuma is the plural form for Allah? You must be kidding (Hint: O God see JW dictionary page 9A) shame on you for not doing your homework before posting this ...
