The Sultan of the Malaysian state Selangor has issued a decree that the sacred word ‘Allah’ can be used only by Muslims. The move put more fire into controversy in the state where language peculiarities also make Christians use the term.

­“Sultan Sharafuddin Idris Shah made a decision and decreed that the word ‘Allah’ is a sacred word specific to Muslims and it is prohibited to be used by any non-Muslim in Selangor,” the Islamic Affairs Council of the Selangor state said Tuesday. The body added “a stern action” was ordered against those questioning the new fatwa, but did not elaborate.

The sultan, mufti and council convened after the chief minister of another state, Penang, urged the central government to allow the word ‘Allah’ to be used in the Malay translation of the Bible, national daily The Star Online reported.

    While it is true that Allah is used by Christians and has always been used by Christians, some Arab Christians believe that al-Illah (the God) is a better term for God than Allah. Allah has too many Muslim attributes, which are completely opposite of the Biblical God.

  2. Richard says:

    I object to anyone telling me what words I can or can’t use.

  3. Softly Bob says:

    Allah is not the God of Christians or Jews anyway, although lying Muslims claim that he is, so for once I have to agree with the Muslims on this one. Save the name ‘Allah’ for the hopeless false deity of Islam.

    Allah!, Allah!, Allah!

    There, suck on that retard and, no, I am not singing a hymn of praise. Islam is a purse string suture in the rectum of human evolution and it is going to have to be snipped before the effluent backing up behind it poisons us all.
