Dear Oliver,

You said

YHWH told Moses His personal NAME when He sent Moses to lead the Hebrews out of bondage in Egypt. Before the advent of Islam, there was a god within the Arabian pantheon with the name Allah – it was, in fact, considered the chief god of their pantheon (like the Greek god Zeus was the chief god of the Greek pantheon). Why would the God of the Hebrews (the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob), who had a specific personal name (a name for all generations) that was totally disassociated from the Hebrew generic words for god and any specific names of other so-called gods, reveal Himself to Mohammad by the name of the local chief deity of a polytheistic pantheon? The fact of the matter is He didn't – ALLAH IS, in point of fact, NOT YHWH.

" Abram worshipped YHWH not ALLAH."

Your reply was scholarly to prove that YHVH is different from Allah thought Bibilical sources. But my originial question remains unanswered. Why then are your Evanglical brothers printing millions Bible in Arabic, Persian and Urdu saying that Jusus the savious of mankind is the only begotten son of Allah ( Obviously the chief of Pagan pantheon of Arabia, Moon god according some other Christian scholars) Why don't you ask them to stop exporting this lie. Why don't you start saving 15 million souls in the Middle East who obviously are sleepwalking to eternal hell fire by sincerely believing that Jusus was son of Allah. Curously the Christian Evanglists in Malaysia had to court to get the right to call their god, Allah. Obviously they are fighting to get to hell fire. What are you going to do about it? Can we live in peace worshiping Allah without being pestered by Evanglists telling us to get salvation through His son.
