Dr. Pipes

Muslims in Malaysia have no clue that the word Allah is a loan word from Syrian Christianity and here is the word God in Syro-Aramiac and it is El

Arabs have no clue that even Quranic names the likes of Gabriel and Isma3eel are loan words from Syriac as the word Gabriel is really Gabr El or the power of God in Syriac and Isma3eel is really from Shma' El or listen to God again it is a loan word from Syriac

And here is the word Alaha (Allaha in Nestorian)

And here is the word Allhan (our God) in the shima in Mark 12:29 in Syriac ܐܳܡܰܪ ܠܶܗ ܝܶܫܽܘܥ ܩܰܕ݂ܡܳܝ ܡܶܢ ܟ݁ܽܠܗܽܘܢ ܦ݁ܽܘܩܕ݁ܳܢܶܐ ܫܡܰܥ ܐܺܝܣܪܳܝܶܠ ܡܳܪܝܳܐ ܐܰܠܳܗܰܢ ܡܳܪܝܳܐ ܚܰܕ݂ ܗ݈ܽܘ and the transliteration and in English it would be

Sh'ma Israel, MarYah Alahan, MarYah Khad Hu
Hear, Israel, the LORD our God, the LORD is one (credit goes to Paul Younan)

And here is an admission from Sheikh al-Azhar that the word Allah is not an Arabic word

http://elazhar.com/qadaiaux/4.asp

And here are examples of loan words that are not Arabic words in the Qur'an including the word Allah and it is the last word

آدم أباريق إبراهيم أرائك استبرق إنجيل تابوت توراة جهنم حبر حور زكاة زنجبيل سبت سجيل سرادق سكينة سورة صراط طاغوت عدن فرعون فردوس ماعون مشكاة مقاليد ماروت هاروت الله.

And the good Sheikh sneaks in the word Allah as the last word and it is the last word in the second line on the left

So it seems to me that the ones that should not use the word Allah must be the Malaysian Muslims because it is not an Arabic word after all the word the God in Arabic is really الاله and not Allah or الله after all their Allah is neither the God of Israel nor the God of the NT
