Our dear James wrote

I personally have met and spoken to muslims, some from Somalia, others from Iran, and Iraq.


The word "Allah" is used in these countries that are arab.

Wa minkum nastafeed

One guy from Iraq was sorely defensive at my mention of "Allah." Apparently the name is too holy for a non muslim to mention according to him.

So let me guess you are a kafir too our dear James or is this taqiyya?

But of course if you all read the Quran and actually speak to real muslims they will all swear they pray to Allah,


the God of Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, and Ishmael.

How do you know? Hint: because the Qur'an says so will not be accepted as evidence

The Quran is translated into English and is on line.

Why do you want me to read the Qur'an in a translation when I can read it in Arabic care to explain?

I would highly suggest that all seriously concerned to read it.

Tablighee advise

Also check the website for "The Common Word. This tells a different story about Muslims vs. Christians

Now what does all of this have to do with the fact that the word Allah is a loan word from Syriac care to explain Mr tablihgee
