Mr. Williams,

To me name defines the contents. For example, you would never like Allah to be called Bhugwan, Ganesh, Krishna or Kali Ma (All hindu idols). Please take a serious note that Allah is a pre-Islamic name & was not worshipped by any prophet till Jesus, sent by YAHWEH. There is No evidence of any kind that the name Allah has been spoken by any of the prophet from Ibraham till Jesus.

To me it is very obvious that the name Allah existed even before Ibraham proclaimed his FAITH in YAHWEH and NOT Allah. Jesus lived among Jews, Arabs, Roman but never spoke of the name Allah. A strong proof is prophet Moses who walked through Arab land but never named his GOD like Allah or some thing else though as per your argument the name Allah was existed.

Like billions of Christians I also don't have any doubt that you worship Allah in the same capacity as we worship YAHWEH but contents are different as the name is different.

It might get your attention that Bible consists upon Torah, Zabur & Anajeel but Quran is NOT. It is our daily practice to recite ALL three books which verify & testify each other BUT Quran on the other hand contradicts all three books by putting blame (unproved even after 1400 + years) that these have been corrupted by the Jews & Christians. Don't you find it wiered that WHY Jews & Christian will have to corrupt their Holy Books. I am sure those Saints, who have sacrificed their lives for the teaching of Jesus, would have been gladly died for Mohammad if it was mentioned by Jesus, their teacher (Rabi). It is absolutely wrong impression given by Islam that Islam & Muhammad were mentioned in the Bible but changed or corrupted. The argument doesn't hold any water.

If you don't agree to my humble submission it won't affect me but it will affect you and you generations to come for sure as acceptance of truth is difficult but it sets you FREE. I hope one day you will also rejoyce with us in the presence of our GOD and NOT among 72 ladies as our GOD is a GOD of HONOUR who bestow Grace not lust.

A believer of Love, Peace & Hope.
