Our dear zbeech wrote this ridiculous sentence

>The Christian Arabs of today have no other word for "God" than "Allah".

Seriously? No other word "for God than Allah"? You must pardon me but you are either ignorant or you know better and you are and you must pardon me a liar

Christians in the Middle East have many words for God in both Arabic Syriac and Coptic as well as Armenian as in 'Enti (from NTR) in the Coptic language and in Syriac 'El (as in Ishmaeel or listen to God) Alaha/Allaha and in Armenian astavats And yes these words for God are used in their corresponding liturgies and when reading the OT they use the seven names of God including El Elohim YHWH Eloah

And in Arabic they use not only the word Allah and in this case because the word is of Syriac origin and it is a loan word in Arabic (how come you did not know that?) And if we follow the logic of the Malaysians then it is Muslims that should not be using this word Do you get it? It originated in a Christian milieu and Muhammad Arabized it

Oh Christians in the ME also use the following words for God in Arabic

1. اله الاله

2. رب الرب

3. سيد السيد

Now do you see what happens when you believe ignorance lies propagated in Tablighee Muslim web sites and you report them as facts? Not good our dear zbeech
