My dear Hamilton your reference is Wikipedia? You are kidding me. My references are a new invention unkown to Muslims called: Books and qawamees (oh silly me you do not know Arabic or Syriac but you know how to google Wikipedia).

Let me start by saying no I'm not Christian and care less what it says or does not say in the Bible and I do not even care what the Trinity really is. Oh I forgot your Allah or is it abul Qasim aka Muhammad did not even get what is really the Trinity and he descibed it as: Allah, Jesus and Mary! So are we talikng about the same Tirnity?

So much for the Muslim theology. I study history: Islamic and Arabic history that is. I care less if Jesus was praying or not. What I'm really interested in is what was Jesus really saying? And if you do not get this with your fancy "non sequitor" and all you are really beyond help.

You? You pretend to know something that is very clear to me is far above your head.

So let me repeat what I said one more time and if you do not get it this time you are really beyond help:

1. The Syro-Armaic word Eli Eli is the arabic word Ilahi or _MY GOD_ It is not Allah. Even if the word uttered by jesus is really Allah you seem to be unaware that the Syriac word for God is: Alaha and in Nestorian Syriac is Allaha which is Arabized as: Allah.

2. And like I said the: lama sabaqtani is very clear arabic that means: When you went aheah of me (left me behind) and the root of the word here is SBQ (see Lisan al-3Arab dictionary and see Hans Wehr Arabic dictionary page 395B)

What is most amazing about you is that you do not seem to realize that Semitic language (Hebrew, Arabic, Syriac) have very much in common and if you know one you can very much understand the other two not unlike your Urdu and Hindi my dear Hamilton.

Now I have a few questions for you:

1. Now you tell me why do you think that the word Allah is a contraction of the word al-Ilah? Qawamees and Kutub al-nahw will be regarded as evidence. (oh silly me you do not know arabic: dictionaries and grammar books) tendentious Muslim web sites and Wikipedia are not regarded as evidence.

2. Could you provide me your refutation to the claim that the word Allah is derived from Syriac Alaha/Allaha?

Stop reading Mr. Zakir naik nonsense, and only if you know what the word Naik really means in arabic.
