What a diasater the so called basmala or Bism (sic) Allah al-rahman al-raheem is a loan sentence from Syriac so in part one I explained that the word bism (sic) is poor Arabic as it should have been b'ism and I even provided the readers a reference from the web that the Arabs would write the word b'ism and not the poor Arabic bism and this is no more than a loan word from Syriac Bishm

Now the word Allah is not a contraction of the Arabic word al-Ilah and this claim by ignorant tablighees that have no clue about the Arabic language is and let me repeat is BOGUS and here are the reasons

1. The word Allah means: God it does not mean THE GOD. Therefore I must conclude that the word Allah cannot be a contraction of the word al-Ilah

2. And if it is indeed a contraction then how come Muslims still and never stopped using the word al-Ilah?

3. And why is the contraction as there is no need for it.

4. the word al-Rabb or the God (and no it does not mean the Lord as the word the Lord means al-Sayyid) is vocalized as aRab as we drop the lam in the vocalization as it is lam shamsiya and if we can contract it then why we can only write it as: al-Rabb? you did not get this one. Did you?

5. In compound Arabic names like Abd Allah it means the slave/servant of God which clealy means that the word Allah is such names means God and not the God.

So much for the bogus claim that Allah is a contraction of the word al-ilah

So where does the word Allah comes from? It is a loan word from Syriac Alaha also Allaha or ܐܠܗܐ

What a disaster the word Allah is a loan word from Syriac

and more evidence that the Muslim basmala is no more than a loan sentence from Syriac
