/* Allah = Satan? */
[[Image:Allah.png|thumb|right|200px|"Allah" in simple [[Arabic language|Arabic]] calligraphy. In Islam any image depicting God is strictly forbidden.]]
The name '''''Allah''''' (<big><big>الله</big></big>) is the [[Arabic]] term which adherents of [[Islam]] claim refers to the god of Islam and should not be confused with [[Jehovah]] or [[Yahweh]] of the Bible, or 'the Father' of the [[New Testament]]. It is not the same being or entity. This [[theonym]] is likely a contraction of Arabic ''Al-'ilāh'' (ال إِله), which means "the god".<ref></ref> In the [[Semitic]] languages it is thus related to the Hebrew term [[Elohim|Eloh(-im)]].
Islam claims that Allah is the personal name of the creator and comprises all of the [[99 Names of God]] in Islam. When a Muslim refers to Allah, he thinks of his god as being One, Creator, Owner, Sustainer, and Almighty. In Arabic, the name is composed of four letters, ا ل ل ه (or Alif, Lam, Lam, Ha) which when brought together make <big><big><big>'''الله'''</big></big></big>. [[Arab]] [[Christians]] often use this name simply to mean "[[God]]". (The generic word for "god" is simply'' 'ilāh'', though due to the strong association of Arabic with Islam this word is rarely used in modern speech.) These Christians do maintain a belief in the traditional Christian [[Trinity]], however, and believe that Allah consists of the Father, Son and Spirit.
== Christianity and Judaism ==
As noted, the The name Allah however, is used by Arab Christians throughout the Middle East. It is also used by Arabic Jews, especially those residing in Yemen. In Arabic it generically takes the place of the name of deity.
According to the [[Koran]] the authority of the [[Torah]] and the [[Gospels]] is subordinated to the content of Islamic revelation. While some [[proper noun]]s and parallels exist with the Hebrew [[Old Testament]] scriptures, some passages and contexts contradict the teachings of Hebrew and Christian doctrines. It was claimed by the prophet [[Mohammed]] that both the Jewish and Christian scriptures, were "corrupted" (from the Arabic term: ''Tahrif''). ''Accordingly, since the Koran has remained unaltered to the present day, (compared to the other Scriptures) Muslims assert that only the Koran contains the Words of God -- the truth in toto (i.e., the whole truth and nothing but the truth). Whereas the earlier Scriptures/Books such as The New Testament, The Old Testament, etc. contain only partial truths.'' <ref>[ Islam and Christianity.]</ref>Christians believe in the mystery of the [[Trinity]] (Father, Son, and Holy Spirit), but Muslims don'tthe first Pilar of Islam is an oath of abrogation against it.<ref>[ My Questions to Muslims.]</ref>
<ref>[ o%20120).html Islam from inside.]</ref> In the Koran's Surah 13 it is said: ''"Allah is the Creator of all things: He is the One, the Supreme and Irresistible." ''
The Kalimah, the first of the 5 pillars of Islam, statesdenies the [[divinity]] of [[Christ]]:
This Kalimah is simple and can be uttered poetic in the original Arabic, but it's meaning is damning under [[shariah]] as it represents a few sentences which can easily be pronounced by anybody without much difficultysacred oath.
''"La ilaha Illa Allah Muhammad Rasulu llah" (SAW)''.
Allah is claimed by adherents of Islam to be one and the same with the God of Christianity and Judaism; however:
{{cquote|Al-Kindi, one of the early Christian apologists against Islam, pointed out that Islam and its god Allah did not come from the Bible but from the paganism of the Sabeans. They did not worship the God of the Bible but the Moon-god and his daughters al-Uzza, al-Lat and Manat.<ref name=Islam>[http Islam: Anti-Civilization] at Conservative News and Views</ref>}}
{{cquote|The Arabs worshiped the Moon-god as a supreme deity. But this was not biblical monotheism. While the Moon-god was greater than all other gods and goddesses, this was still a polytheistic pantheon of deities. Now that we have the actual idols of the Moon-god, it is no longer possible to avoid the fact that Allah was a pagan god in pre-Islamic times. Is it any wonder then that the symbol of Islam is the crescent moon? That a crescent moon sits on top of their mosques and minarets? …. [Is it any wonder that everywhere in the ancient world], the symbol of the crescent moon can be found …. on the flags of Islamic nations?<ref name=Islam />}}
{{cquote|The Muslim claim that Allah is the God of the Bible and that Islam arose from the religion of the prophets and apostles, fails before solid, overwhelming archaeological evidence. Islam is nothing more than a revival of the ancient Moon-god cult. It has taken the symbols, the rites, the ceremonies, and even the name of its god from the ancient pagan religion of the Moon-god. As such, it is sheer idolatry and must be rejected by all those who follow the Torah and Gospel.<ref name=Islam />}}
== Is Allah Satan? ==
In John 8:44, Jesus said of those who did not follow His Word and dishonored Him:
{{cquote|You are of your father the devil, and your will is to do your father’s desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, and has nothing to do with the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks according to his own nature, for he is a liar and the father of lies.}}
Accordingly, these passages from the Koran openly describe Allah as follows:
{{cquote|Koran 3:54 - And they (the unbelievers) planned to deceive, and Allah planned to deceive (the unbelievers), and '''Allah is the best of deceivers'''.}}
{{cquote|Koran 7:99 - Are they then safe from Allah's deception? '''No one feels safe from Allah's deception except those that shall perish'''.}}
{{cquote|Koran 8:30 - And (remember) when the unbelievers plotted deception against you (O Muhammad), to imprison you, or kill you, or expel you. They plotted deception, but Allah also plotted deception; and '''Allah is the best of deceivers'''.}}
When comparing John 8:44 with the Koran passages quoted above,<ref>[ Is Allah the Best of Deceivers?]</ref> and when other Biblical passages describing Satan are compared with the descriptions of Allah, it indicates that Allah may, in fact, be Satan.
== Possible Early Use ==
It is a matter of contention as to whether the name Allah came into use only with the foundation of Islam, or whether it is a reuse of a title of the main pagan god of pre-Islamic [[Mecca]]; Hubal, god of the Moon. Muslim scholars have claimed refutations of this allegation,<ref></ref> but some Christian groups have offered counter-refutations that indicate otherwise.<ref></ref>
=== Moon God ===
Perched atop mosques across the world is the crescent moon and most flags of Muslim majority countries also show a crescent moon. The Muslim "holy" month of Ramadan starts at the sighting of a new crescent moon. "Allah" was also the personal name given to the moon god, the highest of the 360 pagan idols worshipped in Mecca, Muhammad's home town.<ref></ref>
== ''Takbeer or Takbir'' (Glorification of God) ==
''Takbeer'' (تَكْبِير) (Glorification of God), is the common way Muslims give glory to Allah. The wording used is ''Allahu-Akbar'' "الله أكبر", which is translated as "God is great". It is a very common practice in Islam and is essential to the Islamic call of prayer ([[Athan]]).It has also been is regularly used by Islamic terrorists [[jihad]]is as a final cry before their homicide attackswhile they believe that Allah strikes vengeance at his enemies.
