Discussing this subject here under its own, and in more details
from what we touched on in part four of this study could be helpful
and more enlightening to all, especially to those who aren't familiar
with the original languages of God's true revelations of the Bible
(Old and New Testaments) and the Qur'an (Last Testaments), God willing.
Before we start, it's important for all to be aware that referring to,
or calling God differently in different languages, doesn't generally mean
worshiping a different god, for example, the English language uses the word
"God" to refer to "The God" of the Bible, even though that's not what the
Bible referred to, or called God in it's original languages, as we will
learn here, yet, it doesn't mean the English speaking Christians and
Jews worship a god different from what the Hebrew and Aramaic speaking
Christians and Jews do, or that they worship a god different from The
God of the Bible.
Generally, different languages refer to same words differently,
that's why they are different languages, or then they would be one
and the same language. So generally, The One True God could be referred to,
or called differently between and in different languages. Of course in some cases,
different languages could have some similarities, and share some words in their
meaning, some even in their pronunciation.
That being said, it would be completely wrong and deceiving to say the French speaking
people worship a different god called "Dieu" just because God in French is "Dieu",
same for the Spanish, as God is "Dios", and for the Italian, as God is "Dio", and
same for all other languages.
One should come to conclusion about what this or that religion worship, not by what
the god they worship is called in this or that language, but by good knowledge of
the text and teachings of the religion, and to what god does it refer to, in meaning
and description. Only by such knowledge, one can come to the conclusion if this or that religion
worships the One True God or another false god.
So even if God wasn't called "Allah" in the original languages of the Bible, which
as we will learn here, He is, but even if He wasn't, just because God is called
"Allah" in the Qur'an, which the original language of the Qur'an is Arabic,
it would be false and deceiving to say Muslims worship a different god from The God who sent Moses
and Jesus (Pput) with the truth.
One might ask, why then spend the time discussing the similarity between
what "God" is called in the original languages of the Bible and the Qur'an?
Well, some might not be familiar with the meaning of the Arabic word "Allah",
and unfortunately some try to use that to spread false information about Muslims
worshiping a different god from The One True God of the Bible. So it's important
to point out the above, and the following, to help directing those and everyone to
the truth of this matter, God willing.
Here, we will learn that even though the original languages of the Old Testament,
New Testament, and the Last Testament, are different, yet, they share similarities,
such as, all write and read from right to left, and all use similar and in some cases
almost identical words in meaning and pronunciation. The word "Allah" is one of
those similar/identical words.
What does the word "Allah" mean, in Arabic?
