Did our dear Yusuf really undestand what Ibn Manzur wrote I doubt it very much

Allah is not a name,

Really? so what is it فعل او مفعول?

it is a general term like tree,

Your name is an اسم and the word شجرة ios also اسم how come you did not know that?

Allah means "the God" n it applied to all faith...

No it does not it means God via Syriac

17:110 Say: "Call upon Allah, or call upon Rahman: by whatever name ye call upon Him, (it is well): for to Him belong the Most Beautiful Names. Neither speak thy Prayer aloud, nor speak it in a low tone, but seek a middle course between."

It is الرحمان so are you editing the Qur'an? but what does this have to do with tafseer of the word Allah?

22:40 [They are] those who have been evicted from their homes without right - only because they say, "Our Lord is Allah." And were it not that Allah checks the people, some by means of others, there would have been demolished monasteries, churches, synagogues and mosques, wherein the name of Allah is much mentioned. And Allah will surely support those who support Him. Indeed, Allah is Powerful and Exalted in Might.

What does this have to do with tafseer of the word Allah? Hint the Qur'an is not a dictionary otherwise we would have known what the strange words the likes of الاف in Q105 really means

But wait al-Tabari is the one who tells us that Allah is a contraction of al-Ilah which is bogus but this would mean that your Allah name is really له ! you dont believe me? In Q1:2 you have the compound word لله where the lam means To له read as God or Allah which means that the real name of your God is really له so is his name له? Why are you making a fool of yourself tell me

Let me help you you need to read tafseer al-Tabari of the word Allah and then reread my post about Ibn Manzur's dicionary and the word Allah

Amazing ignorance
