Comments on: Malaysia’s “Allah” row spills over into Facebook http://blogs.reuters.com/faithworld/2010/01/04/malaysias-allah-row-spills-over-into-facebook/ Religion, faith and ethics Sat, 23 Apr 2016 23:25:07 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: xarrar http://blogs.reuters.com/faithworld/2010/01/04/malaysias-allah-row-spills-over-into-facebook/comment-page-1/#comment-23896 Fri, 19 Mar 2010 05:44:52 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/faithworld/?p=10856#comment-23896 The reason Muslims are so concerned about the use of word Allah for God is that Muslims don’t want anyone to be called as son of Allah (na’ozobillah) or daughter of Allah (na’ozobillah) or even anyone sharing any of His powers whatsoever.

I hope my point is clear, if anyone wants to use this greatest word Allah, then they MUST adhere to the respect this name deserves. He is One, most powerful and the most merciful.

It was a term reserved for the “top or alpha god” and Allah was worshiped in the Kabah at Mecca before prophet Muhammad (PBUH)was born. The opening line of the holy quran also mentions that “there is no god worthy of worship than Allah and Mohammad is his messenger”. The Quran merely uses the term Allah as the “Meccans” (inhabitants of Mecca) and local Arabic tribes were already familiar with.
its with the passage of time that this word has been wrongly interpreted as a word exclusively for Islamic or Muslim god.
