>There are 99 different names for Allah in Arabic.

Oh Like al-rahman and al-raheem? No these are not names. These are so called attribues of your Arabian Allah. In Arabic a language that you cannot read or speak or write the words for God are:

1. Allah.

2. Ilah (the God is al-Ilah)

3. Rabb (the god is al-rabb)

You must pardon me but you are ignorant and all these words are very gender specific, male gender that is, and for example the word al-ilaha meand the godess

The word Allat is the female form of the word Allah (see Q53) so your claim is bogus and yous Allah is a He and he ain't a she and he ain't gender-neutral either

>Some of these translate into the Almighty, the Powerful one, etc.

Well let me see the word almighty in Arabic is al-qadir and this is for a male and for a female it is al-qadira and your Allah is not al-qadira he is al-qadir so your claim so far is bogus.

The powerful one is al-qawi in Arabic a language that you cannot read, write or speak and the female powerful is al-qawiya and you will agree with me that your Allah is al-qawi and therefore he is masculine. How come you did not know that?

>None of the names are gender-specific, like "God" is.

One word: Bogus and for this see above

Bogus and shame on you for having no clue about basic Arabic language and still having the audacity to write this nonsense

> We do not use words like "God", because "God" suggests a male gender.

You are ignorant the word Allah means God male that is

>Likewise, the term "Goddess" suggests a female gender.

Drivel

>Allah refers to the power that we cannot see-- it is an unknown that is too complex for humans to understand. People can only feel Allah in their hearts, unless one is atheist. To say that any person has proof of the power's identity is absurd. It certainly is everyone's god, despite religion.

Islamic gobbledygook

>Though Allah is God in a different language and slightly different understanding, it is nonetheless the idea of a higher, unseen power. Educate yourselves with real sources, not prejudice ones.

It is you that need to educate yourself about the Arabic language grammar and you need to stick to Urdu

>Terrorism has nothing to do with religion, as it is a sin to kill even the smallest creatures.

Really? then why does your Allah say: yuqatiluna fi sabeeli allah fayuqtiluna wa yuqtaluna

And no I do not translate arabic for wannabe arabs like you but your male Allah is saying that you must kill nad be killed in his cause. And what is Allah's cause? Terrorism? or is it collceting 1/5 of the loot that has been looted from infidels?so which one is it?
