Sudah lama manusia berbalah soal nama ALLAH


Why is Allah never defined in the Qur'an?

Why did Muhammad assume that the pagan Arabs already knew who Allah was? Through archaeological evidence the dominated religion of Arabia was the cult of the Moon god Habal or Bal (False God of the Bible) "Sin" is this why Islam has a crescent moon as their symbol ? and Ilah (meaning Became confused or perplexed (Babel) so if Muhammad asserted that Al-ilah was the chief of the gods, he began to rid Arabia of all other gods and proclaimed Al-ilah as the only true god. Sin, Hubal, Ilumquh, Al-ilah all are one and the same.Was Muhammad's family pagan? Im confused i thought Islams Allah of the Qur'an was the same God as Abraham's God of the Bible, it doesn't look as though they are.

I feel some that believe Allah is the same God of Abraham should see the historical and archeological evidence found concerning where Islamic religion came from. These are experts in their field it is what they are saying not me. Beelzebub is originally the name of a Philistine god (more specifically a certain type of Baal, from Ba‘al Zebûb, lit. "Lord of Flies") but is also used in the New Testament as a synonym for Satan. ( Wiklipedia)

The moon god was also referred to as "al-ilah". This is not a proper name of a single specific god, but a generic reference meaning "the god". Each local pagan Arab tribe would refer to their own local tribal pagan god as "al-ilah".
"al-ilah" was later shortened to Allah before Muhammad began promoting his new religion in 610 AD.
There is evidence that Hubal was referred to as "Allah".
When Muhammad came along, he dropped all references to the name "Hubal" but retained the generic "Allah".
Muhammad retained almost all the pagan rituals of the Arabs at the Kaba and redefined them in monotheistic terms.

You're correct; Islam is very vague about the essential identity of Allah. Because of this Muslims understandably seek to legitimize Islam by claiming that Allah and the God of Abraham are the same.

That's only one of the many, many reasons why people say Islam is a false religion, and Muhammad was a false prophet.

Did you know that this was foretold in the Bible? Muhammad claimed he was visited by AN ANGEL, who gave him what he called the Quran. But that "angel" was actually a demon in disguise.

As the apostle Paul wrote to the Christians in Galatia, hundreds of years *BEFORE* Muhammad,
"But even if we, or AN ANGEL FROM HEAVEN, should preach to you a gospel contrary to what we have preached to you, he is to be accursed!" - Holy Bible, Galatians 1:8 (NASB)

And again, centuries *BEFORE* Muhammad,
"For even Satan disguises himself as AN ANGEL OF LIGHT. Therefore it is not surprising if his servants also disguise themselves as servants of righteousness, whose end will be according to their deeds." - Holy Bible, 2 Corinthians 11:14-15 (NASB)

"For many deceivers have gone out into the world, those who do not acknowledge Jesus Christ as coming in the flesh. This is the DECEIVER and the ANTICHRIST." - Holy Bible, 2 John 1:7 (NASB)

Clearly, God foresaw that Muhammad would fall for Satan's lies, and He gave us specific warning against the deceiver!

And why didn't Muhammad take the warning? Because he came from a pagan background and had only a fragmentary and distorted understanding of Christianity, gleaned from renegade Nestorian Christians. This is where he formed his wrong idea that Christianity had been corrupted--because the Nestorians' version of Christianity certainly was corrupted. Muhammad knew almost nothing of the *true* Christian faith and, drunk with Satan's flattery, he chose not to seek the truth about Christ for himself.

    No, the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob is not the same as the god of Mohammad.
    Islam distorts Genesis and makes Ishmael the son of promise born of Abraham (totally ignoring Genesis 17, which Muslims claim to respect).
    Allah, to Muslims, is absolutely one. This means that Muslims cannot account for the diversity in the universe....only the unity. It also means that Allah cannot have love as an essential characteristic because he had no one to love in eternity past.
    The God of the Bible is essentially ONE, yet eternally exists in three persons. Such a God does have love as His primary characteristic. Such a God perfectly accounts for both the unity (uni) and the diversity (verse) in the universe.

    To define any God is to limit that God. Which is why you don't get the God of the Hebrew Scriptures defined, either.

    You are confusing the Al-ilah with Allah (the Arabic name for God), there is no name to this God Allah is just the Arabic word for God, hence when Muslims say there is no God but Allah, they are saying there is no God but God. It's what mathematitians call a tautology.

    The Koran is pretty clear though that the one true God is the same one worshipped by Jews and Christians and muslims respect many of the Jewish and Chritian prophets as prophets of God (Allah).

    They just teach that over time the revelation given to Jews and Christians became corrupted which is why further revelation needed to be given and this time the primary purpose was the protect the message form corruption, which is why muslims take their holy book very seriously and commit it to memory. The theory being is if all but one muslim was killed and all muslim literature was destroyed, that one muslim could still reconstruct the entire Koran from memory.

    Hope this clarifies the Islamic position.

    You are so wrong. I am ARAB CHRISTIAN. Many of those who converted to Islam were previously Christian, and they said ALLAH or ILLAH, because that is the Arabic word for God, derived from Aramaic. Allah is defined as God. Mohammad knew the Christian Gospel very well, he was never pagan. MOST Muslims today were at one time Christians. Christian Arabs were saying Allah before any of Mohammads revelations. Allah is simply an ARABIC name for God. If the Qu'ran was translated in English, the word would be "God".

    How did American English speakers know that God wasn't the pagan German "Gad"????

    The cresent moon symbol comes from 16th century use by the Ottomans. When the Ottomans conquered the Byzantines, they adopted the moon and star symbols used in Constantinople on Byzantine coins. The Ottoman empire was one of the longest Islamic empires, so many Muslims
    today use it.


    ibn Allah=Son of God
    oum Allah=Mother of God (Mary)
    Yassou Allah= Lord Jesus
    Yassou al Massih=Jesus the Messiah

    God of Abraham is not the same as Allah. They use this to deviate illiterate people.

    And Islam was started by some AD periods only.
    Then Allah is not defined in the quran, because it is difficult to define something not really existing.

    Allah is defined throughout the Holy Qur'an, you simply choose not see the definition. Here is only one example:

    Surah 3:6
    It is Allah who shapes you in the wombs as He wills. He is the only Lord, the Majestic, and All-wise.

    Is that not a definition? Your argument is purely out of ignorance. If you open any Arabic Bible or Torah, you will find the name of Allah all throughout those books. Clearly this is the same one and only God who created all things and has sent all of those books for our instruction. Furthermore, the English definition of Allah is -the God. It is genderless and cannot be made plural. There is no better way to express the one God.


    There is no God, except Allah
