Who is ALLAH?What is ALLAH?

Allah words is Exclusively for Islam?

 Upon my “DISCUSSION” with one of my MUSLIM colleague,i managed to get an understanding from their(ISLAMIC) point of view

 1.The word “ALLAH” is not exclusively for ISLAM.It CAN be used by all ABRAHAMIC RELIGION such as ISLAM,CHRISTIANITY and JUDAISM

 2.The word “ALLAH” itself literally mean “GOD”

 3.Even in Arabs speaking countries,CHRISTIANS are using the same word

 4.In fact we were all CONVERTS,regardless you are CHRISTIAN or ISLAM as these 2 Abrahamic Religion itself originated from the Middle East for which we are TECHNICALLY IMPORTED the Holy Quran,Holy Bible from there

 5.There is another 99 name of GOD other than ALLAH

6.Even during Prophet Muhammad days inn Mecca,CHRISTIANS and JEWS were using the exact word in their Prayer and Worshipping

7.There is no discrimination or supression agaisnt the Christians and Jews during Prophet Muhammad Days in Mecca eventhough ISLAM is the Majority

8.Christians and Jews were given Religious Freedom during the Great Islamic Era and ISLAM itself has never ever force those Non Islam to follow their teaching and forced them to embraced Islamic Faith

9.In Islamic perspective,we are all brother and sisters in the context of we are all descendant of Adam and Eve which being create by God

10.In the context of Malaysia,we are not Arab speaking countries and we had to use Holy Quran in its original language which is Arab

11.There is only one GOD by whatever names that we might call HIM

12.Islam believe in one God which is Allah

13.Islam believe in Muhammad as the Messenger Of Allah

14.Islam believe in all 25 Prophets including Jesus Christ as Messenger Of Allah

15.Islam believe that to denied Jesus Christ is equivalent to denied Allah itself

16.Islam believe that “Bahawa aku naik saksi tiada Tuhan lain selain Allah dan Muhammad itu Pesuruh Allah””

17.There is no verse in the Holy Quran which said that only Muslims can use the word Allah

18.But what that make ISLAM and CHRISTIANS differ was our UNDERSTANDING of God(Allah)

19.In CHRISTIANITY,we believe in the Holy Trinity which is The Father,Son and the Holy Spirit

20.But in ISLAM,”Allah itu tidak besekutu dan tidak di sekutukan”

21.These two are the MAJOR differences between ISLAM and CHRISTIANITY

Islam tidak melarang pengunaan perkataan Allah di kalangan bukan Islam tetapi dengan syarat,konteks pengunaan itu tidak boleh secara langsung dan tidak langsung nya menimbulkan kekeliruan dan menjurus kepada kesesatan kepada umat Islam.

Apa yang yang dikhuatiri adalah pemahaman tentang Allah itu boleh terpesong kerana dlm Agama Kristian,mereka percaya kepada konsep Holy Trinity yang mana dlm erti kata lain,Allah itu ada sekutu dan di sekutukan

Tetapi dari segi Islam,Allah itu hanya satu dan tiada sekutu ataupun di sekutukan.Oleh itu,ini lah yang menimbulkan kebimbangan jika pengunaan perkataan Allah tersebut oleh bukan Islam,boleh memesongkan akidah umat Islam jikalau salah dari segi PENGUNAAN nya.

Walaupun begitu,soal pokok nya di sini adalah AKIDAH dan PEMAHAMAN seseorang ISLAM tentang agama nya sendiri.

Pengunaan perkataan Allah oleh bukan Islam tidak membawa apa-apa kesan kepada umat Islam jikalau umat Islam itu sendiri tinggi AKIDAH nya

Di pihak umat Islam sendiri, pendidikan akidah Islam tidak ditekankan secara yang sepatutnya. Kita lebih banyak menumpulkan soal fekah sehingga melupai pokok yang lebih penting iaitu akidah.

Inilah sebabnya ramai orang melayu sekalipun bersolat, ada yang mudah terpengaruh dengan

khurafat, bomoh, tahyul dan seumpamanya.

Tetapi dalam isu ini,terlalu banyak di politik kan demi kepentingan Politik semata2.Tidak cukup sekadar berkata kepada dunia bahawa anda MEMPERJUANGKAN BANGSA DAN AGAMA tetapi sebalik nya,Hukum2 Agama,anda tidak tekan kan dan hanya MERONTA2 hanya kerana satu PERKATAAN yang tidak mempunyai apa2 makna jika AKIDAH nya sendiri tiada.

Dalam isu ini,penyelesaian melalui proses perundangan sahaja adalah tidak memadai kerana Hakim yang membuat keputusan hanya berdasarkan Lunas Undang2 Sivil dan tidak mengambil kira aspek dari perspektif Agama.Oleh itu,saya berpendapat adalah lebih wajar di adakan satu INTER FAITH DIALOGUE antara ISLAM dan KRISTIAN untuk membincangkan bentuk pengunaan perkatan ALLAH ini di kalangan bukan ISLAM.

Ini adalah salah satu cara terbaik yang dalam masa yang sama boleh meredakan KEMARAHAN kedua2 penganut Agama ini dan lantas memelihara semangat KEHARMONIAN KAUM di negara kita Malaysia yang tercinta ini.Oleh itu saya MEMBANTAH KERAS rancangan2 untuk mengadakan DEMONSTRASI di jalanan kerana ini boleh menyebabkan KRISIS antara kaum di negara kita.

Kita tidak mampu lagi untuk mengulang semula Tragedi 13 Mei 1969.Apa yang sarankan adalah menyeru agar Rakyat tidak terlalu FANATIK dengan ISU ini kerana ini boleh menjejaskan RUSUHAN KAUM.Oleh itu,Pihak Kementerian Dalam Negeri hendak lah memainkan peranan yang penting di dalam ISU ini seperti tidak mengeluarkan Permit untuk berhimpun sekira nya di pohon oleh mana2 pihak.

22..I still believe that the true UNITY in DIVERSITY is here in Sarawak

23.We have been living together for an ages before with GREAT TOLERANCE and MUTUAL RESPECT with each other

24.There is no such things as Racial Sentiment here in Sarawak as we were all STRIVE to PROGRESS together regardless who you are

25..We are all Peace Lover and not Chaos Lover

26.There is no reason at all for us Sarawakians to FIGHT with each other as a matter of fact,we have been like Brothers and Sisters since the days of our Ancestors

27. We condemn INDIVIDUALs who has done this to us and not the MUSLIMS at whole

28.Deep in my heart,it would be the best that we  just let it go for the sake of Peace and Stability in our beloved country

29.The other side of me saying that we must FIGHT for it.Not because of HATRED but a matter of our RIGHT

30.We need to Respect each other but it should be in TWO WAY and not one sided.It must be MUTUAL RESPECT

31.It has been clearly stipulated in the Federal Constitution Article 11 that Non Muslim were not allowed to Propagate their Belief to Muslims.In this case,their RIGHTS has been Safeguard by the Constitution itself

32.We have been using the word for an ages before but why only now we it became an issue?

33.Saying that ALLAH is EXCLUSIVELY for ISLAM is very wrong.It was clearly written in their Holy Quran and also Sunnah Nabi that all Abrahamic Faith were allowed to use the word ALLAH

34.It was some sort of DEVIATION from their ISLAMIC teaching if we were porhibited to use the word

35.We have been SACRIFICE and BEING SACRIFICE in the past,we cant afford to be supressed,opressed and depressed by them anymore

 

36.We could just let it go this time arround,but in the FUTURE?

Maybe we were prohibit to use the words Allah Taalla and Amin after this

37.Do you all aware that there is Holy Quran in Iban Language being published now?

38.Allah is actually originated from a Pagan God in Mecca.Long before the days of Christianity and ISLAM

39.During Nabi Muhhamad days,he has never prohibit the Christians,Jews and even Pagan to use this words

40.In Egypt,Christians were using the exact word in their daily prayer and sermon.Same goes to in Indonesia which is the world most populous Muslims Nation with more MultiRacial and Multireligion than here in Malaysia

41.Does it makes them less ISLAMIC if we were allowed to use this word?

42.Are they were more ISLAMIC than the MUSLIMS in the EGYPT or SAUDI ARABIA which implement the HUDUD LAW as a matter of fact,it was not practice here?

43.Once our Bible in Iban Language has been banned before and recently Bible in Bahasa Malaysia for the same reason

44.Perhaps they didnt realise that this issue might be between ISLAM vs CHRISTIAN in west Malaysia but what about in Sabah and Sarawak whereby the Christians were MAJORITY DAYAKS?

45.Did they realise this can cause Racial Tension in Sabah and Sarawak?

46.The first Bible being translated into Malay language is in 1854 ad its being translated by Munsyi Abdullah.He was born as Muslims and when he died,he died as Muslims.He has been CRITICISED in the past for his work in Translation of the Bible into Malay language an he was even being called as Paderi Munsyi by his Critics.

 Point 1: Religion
While there was no objection to Islam being the national religion of Malaysia there should be no State religion in North Borneo, and the provisions relating to Islam in the present Constitution of Malaya should not apply to North Borneo

Christians and Muslims sometimes misunderstand Allah to be purely Islamic. Instead, it is the Arabic word for God and a close semantic relative of the Hebrew El. In many Central Asian countries, Muslims use Khuda, the Persian word for God, rather than Allah. Christians in Palestine and other Arabic-speaking communities also refer to God as Allah.

The term spread to Southeast Asia in the 1100s as Muslim sultanates were established. It then became incorporated into the Malay language family, which includes Malaysian and Indonesian.

Christians have used the word for centuries, and the conflict is not new. A Wycliffe translator who has been in the region for several years said this debate began when the first Bible was published in Malay, using Allah, in 1985.

This indicates “the country is moving away from the multireligious and multiethnic composition that negotiated independence from the British to a domination of one race over all.”

There is no use of staging a demonstration as it will lead to POTENTIAL serious backlashes and the protest itself is a contempt of Court Decision

We cant afford to EXPERIENCE another Racial Riot(May 13th 1969)

This is where the POLITICAL WISDOM played a very important roles to deal with the issue WISELY

It should be a Win-Win situation for both side in the end of the day,otherwise it might PROLONG the issue rather than SOLVING it

This is where the 1Malaysia Concept should be CONCEPTUALISED so that it will DISMISSED the RHETORICS and POLEMICS critics agaisnt it.If the Government FAILED to project this image,they better buckle up their seatbelt and brace for the IMPACT in the next General Election

We should be very glad that here in Sarawak,we have been living together in peace and harmony for an ages  but the situation is different in West Malaysia whereby Racial Barrier were great enough to split and cause DISUNITY among the Malays,Chinesse and the Indians and to be exact,between the Muslims and Non Muslims

 Perhaps they should LEARN the true spirit of Multiracial and Multireligious Sarawak.Based on the current situation,i would like to say that 1Malaysia Concept is just Rhetorics and Polemics with no SIGNIFICANT IMPACT or whatsoever.It seems like there is no better than before and it seems like it has become even worse!!!!!!!!

I believe,the best approach is for our Leaders in Sarawak to come forward and gave some STATEMENTS regarding this issue to CLARIFY the whole scenario to the Rakyat so that for the very least,the Rakyat will feel more SAFE and SECURE as they had a WORDS OF COMFORTS from their Leaders.The Church and Mosque Authority should played a role here as well as the Police for public order.But so far,we have SEEN and HEARD NONE of them except from our Home Minister whom said “Keadaan Terkawal”.From my personal view,that was not enough and perhaps they can came forward with a MUCH BETTER STATEMENT as the Rakyat were not stupid!!

To all our so called “Dayak Leaders” and especially Our Yang Mengasihi,

WHERE WERE YOU WHEN OUR RELIGION HAS BEEN THREATEN??????

Oh ya,i forgot,you cant even defend  our own Dayak Race,what more to say our Religion as a matter of fact,you all are not CHRISTIANS as Yang Di Kasihi is your one and ONLY GOD

Ps:We Sarawakians DO NOT NEED this EXTREMISM ACT in our Land..We are Peace Lovers.We DO NOT NEED the so called 1Malaysia Concept as we have been living the 1Sarawak for a long time ago…..

Best Regards,

  2. You are not pretty sure of what you are writing. I am sure you do not know what you are writing. I could understand your argument was based on hear and say. Be mindful, The word Christian was only used 400 years after the death of Jesus. And the word Jesus derived from Rome, not from middle East. ‘Allah’ was used when the Bibble was not yet tampered and today we have more than a thousand VERSIONS of Bibble. So if the bibble come in many versions, which one is correct?

    Why only now we Christian want to use the word Allah, Why not 20, 30 years ago. I used to hear Christian used to laugh at the words Allah but today they eat their word. Please read this :

    • Krani,

      My arguement is indeed very simple and it does not involved Theology or whatsoever.
      In fact,Allah words is being use by Pagans in Mecca to call their God,and that is 400 years before Christianity.
      You may have your own basis of arguement in this issue but please stick to the main issue which is “Allah words is Exclusively for Islam?”

      For God sake!!We have been using the word Allah for over 100 years!!The first Bible being translated into Malay language is in 1854 ad its being translated by Munsyi Abdullah.He was born as Muslims and when he died,he died as Muslims.He has been CRITICISED in the past for his work in Translation of the Bible into Malay language an he was even being called as Paderi Munsyi by his Critics.

  3. Most we, christians do not know why we want to use word Allah. We simply follow others. In Sarawak, the word Allah derived from Indonesian Bibble and at first our parent malu to use Allah. During my school time we curse the word Allah. But now we fight for Allah. In short, we christian are punished by God
