Word ALLAH in Bible
by Abd ar-Rahman Robert Squires -- Source: www.muslim-answers.org
Just a few examples for those who are still in doubt . . .
images below, with the exception of the first image, were taken directly
from a translation of The Holy Bible in Arabic. Referred
to in Arabic as "al-Kitaab al-Muqadis" (i.e.
The Holy Book),
this is the scripture which is used by Arabic-speaking
(of which there are still about 15 to 20 million in the Middle East). So
that those unfamiliar with Arabic script have something to compare these
images with, the first image below is a verse from the
which is the Muslim scripture. In the images, the Arabic word "Allah"
is underlined in red
so that it can be easily identified. Upon comparing the images, one should
be able to clearly see that the word "Allah" appears in both the
verses and Bible verses. Indeed, the word "Allah" appears
throughout Arabic translations of the Bible, since it is simply the Arabic
name for Almighty God. Insha'llah, the examples below will help
quell the doubts of those who have been duped into believing that "Muslims
worship a different god" - either by the hostile media or by Christian
missionary propaganda. We hope that this serves as enough documentation
for those who still have doubts about this. We could think of no other
way to prove this point, except to encourage everyone to do further critical
and open-minded research on their own. Please, don't forget to compare
the images . . .
