Allah is the arabic word for God and Allah is the God of the Abrahamic faiths

Reader comment on item: Is Allah God?

Submitted by zbeech (United States), Jun 23, 2016 at 11:51

The reason Muslims claim there is no True Bible available today is because it has been corrupted by the Jews and the Christians.. therefore the True Bible does not exist anymore. When Muslims say the True Bible they mean the Bible that was revealed before the corruption started. Allah is the Arabic word for God and Arab Christians ( Syrian, Egyptian, Palestinian, Lebanese etc.) call the God from the bible Allah! Allah means the One God. Jews and Christians claim the worship the One God although Christians go further and call Jesus ..God! I am a Muslim and Allah is the God of Abraham.. you are not correct.. do some unbiased research please.

The Aramaic word for "God" in the language of Assyrian Christians is ʼĔlāhā, or Alaha. Arabic-speakers of all Abrahamic faiths, including Christians and Jews, use the word "Allah" to mean "God". The Christian Arabs of today have no other word for "God" than "Allah".
