For our dear Muhammad rabina yahmiduhu akthar wa akthar and the word Allah part trois

in response to reader comment: I wanted simple proof of what you have claimed

Now we need to talk about the ignorant tablighees and ignorant Arabs who tell us that the word Allah is really a contaction of the word al-Ilah or the God.

But wait: I'm sure you agree with me that;
1. The word Allah means: God it does not mean THE GOD. Therefore I must conclude that the word Allah cannot be a contaction of the word al-Ilah

2. And if it is indeed a contraction 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 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 Whb'lh or Wahb Allah (see Payne Smith Thesaurus Syriacus) the name would be: Gift of God and not "the gift of the God" which clealy means that the word Allah is such names means God and not the God.

So much for the bogus claim by Muslims that the word Allah is a contraction of the word al-Ilah

Stay tuned for more educated guess and not proof.

And asking for proof: could you provide us with the proof that your Allah spoke to muhammad albeit via an angel. Solid real proof. ...
