It appears continually that non-Muslim and Muslims will never get the name of God issue settled, at least not in this mortal realm. It will be settled in the next; of that the believers of each are assured.

But the evidence, as alluded to elsewhere, is still for the believer to assess as life produces its own relevance for each to consider, whether in the mind (following a certain rationale) or in the heart (where rationality is sometimes limited by emotion. If I call Yeshua Almighty God, then the argument begins, though I have my own evidence.

RIP asserts (as do many others of likeminded thinking) that God is but one named 'allah; then another argument begins. For if one assets Yeshua is Almighty God, then it cannot be 'allah; for Yeshua says different in His source.

"The fool says in his heart 'there is no God," and this is true. And if we pray to the God we recognize in our own hearts, what do we bear as the evidence that this is true? Almighty God provides the answer, does He not?

Thus, a Muslim prays to Mecca; a Jewish person in his synagogue; a Christian in his church; others in their temples and places of worship; each have their own place and their own divinity to whom they seek the answers of guidance; and for some repentance, redemption in love and life. The evidence has shown that is has always been this way, so far.

BTW, believing followers of Yeshua have always been in the minority and under heavy persecution, even as it is today. So a majority of numbers does not assure a quality of this mortal life, now does it. But the quality of belief that insures immortal life, who has the best evidence for that….anyone?
