in response to reader comment: Allah the God

Submitted by Infidel (Canada), Jul 31, 2007 at 16:53

The only known people who had direct and indirect contact with "God" were the Israelites who spoke Hebrew. In using Hebrew words to record historical events, the Israelites used their written language but did not include the vowels in their writings. Thus reference to "God" were non vowel letters. The most common examples were the words, YHWH, or YHVH. Eventually other people began adding vowels in order to pronounce the name of "God". Thus, perhaps the most common word, including vowels maybe, "Y'HOVAH or, Y'HVIH, YESHUAH and, ADONAY, EL, ELOHIYM, ELABB and YAHH.

Bismi "ALLAH", the words for the Muslim "God" are not Muhammad's invention. The pagans in Mecca used those two sanctified words 100's of years before Muhammad was born in most of their rituals as they considered Allah to be their supreme deity or God. Further more, Allah was believed to have lived in the Ka'aba along with 359 other gods. Thus when Muhammad received his spiritual information, he threw all the gods out of the Ka'aba and declared that Allah was the only true "God".
