"GOD" in Arabic and Aramaic sound the same:

The following section was written by me after brother Yishan Jufu sent to me the definition references below from the Bible Crosswalk web site; may Allah Almighty always be pleased with him.

Transliterated Word: 'Elah'
TDNT Entry: None
Phonetic Spelling: 'ay-law'

Definition: Elah = "An oak"

Several points to learn:

1. "elahh" is the way the word "hhla" (spelled from right to left as it is Aramaic) is pronounced.

2. The words "Elahh", "hhla (read from right to left)" and "Allah" all have the "h" letter and pronunciation in them.

3- "Allah" in Arabic is pronounced as "Al-lawh" or "Al-lah" depending on the sentence that it is used in.  In Arabic, the sound of the word "Allah" could be thicker (Allawh) or thinner (Allah) depending on the sentence.

4- The Aramaic word "hhla (read from right to left)", which is transliterated as "elahh" which means "GOD" is pronounced as "El-aw" as show above.

5- The Aramaic word "hla (read from right to left)", which is transliterated as "elah" which means "oak" is pronounced as "Ay-law" also as shown above.

6- "Allah" in Arabic is pronounced as "Al-lawh" or "Al-lah" depending on the sentence that it is used in.  In Arabic, the sound of the word "Allah" could be thicker (Allawh) or thinner (Allah) depending on the sentence.

7- The Hebew word "Elohim" is the plural of "Elowah", which is derived from the Aramaic word "Alaha", or "Elahh"; the same as the Arabic word "Allah" or "Allawh" in pronunciation. 

If we pronounce the words "Allah" in Arabic and "Elahh (pronounced as 'El-aw')" in Aramaic, then we would hear almost the same exact word.

Some Christians tried to prove that the word "Allah" in Aramaic means "oak".  This type of deception is quite common among many of the Christians who hate Islam.  In the Aramaic words above "hhla (GOD)" and "hla (oak)", we see an obvious difference between the two words, not only in spelling, but also in pronunciation as well.

The point is however is that we see no "y" sound for the words that mean "GOD" in both Arabic and Aramaic.  The "y" sound is only used for the word "oak" as shown above.  The slang of the words "Elahh" and "Allah" in Aramaic and Arabic respectively sound almost exactly.

So to say that "Allah" in Arabic means "oak" in Aramaic is a big hoax.

 

Important Note: In Arabic it is important to know that the letter "h" is inserted at the end of every word that ends with the "a" sound.  For instance, take my name "Osama".   Although it is pronounced as "Osama", but in Arabic it is written as "Osamah".  If you pronounce "Osama" and pay close attention to your pronunciation, then you would notice that you are pronouncing it as "Osamah".  There is a small "h" pronunciation at the end of it.   Take another example "Maria".  In Arabic, it is written as "Mariah", because of the slight "h" pronunciation at the end of it.   "Angela" is also written as "Angelah" and so on.  Arabic does not ignore the slight "h" pronunciation at the end of the words that have the "a" sound at the end of them.

In the case of "Allah".  In Arabic, it is in many cases pronounced heavily as "Alla" and slightly as "Allah" unless the person purposely pronounces the "h", which would then be pronounced heavily as "Allah".  

In the case of the Aramaic word "El-law (hhla)" above, if you pronouce the word, then you will notice a slight pronunciation of the letter "h".  The pronunciation of the word "El-law" is pronounced heavily as "El-law" or "El-la", but it is also pronounced slightly as "El-lah" or "El-lawh" or "Al-lah" or "Allah".  Arabic as I said inserts the letter "h" at the end of the words that end with the "a" pronunciation, thus making "Osama" be "Osamah", "Maria" be "Mariah", "Alla" be "Allah", etc...

"El-law" or "El-lawh" in Aramaic means "GOD", while "Eloi" in Aramaic means "My GOD" as Jesus used the word "Eloi" when he was put on the cross and said "My GOD My GOD why have you forsaken me? (Eloi, Eloi, lama sabachtani?)....(Mark 15:34)"

In Arabic, "GOD" means "Allah", and "My GOD" means "Ilahi" or "Elahi" which is derived from the word "Allah".

 

Another Important Note:  In Iran, the word "Allah" is pronounced as "Allawh".  In the Arabic alphabets, which is used in the Iranian (Persian) language, there is no writing for the pronunciation of the letter "l" as "law".  The addition of punctuation to the letter "l", can make it be written in the Arabic alphabets as "la" or "laa" or "li" or "lee" or "lo" or "loo", but never "law".  "law" in Arabic is written as "la".  In Arabic as I mentioned above, "Allah" can be pronounced also as "Allawh".  However, in Iran, it is almost always pronounced as "Allawh".

By the way, the two "l"s in "Allah" are written in Arabic as one "l".  In Arabic, if the letter is pronounced twice after each others such as the "m" in "Muhammad", then it is written only once, and a special punctuation called "al-shaddah" is applied on the top of the letter to indicate that it is a double pronunciation.  So the point is, the Arabic "Allah" is written with one "l" and not two "l"s.  Perhaps the old Aramaic thousands of years ago was like that too, and maybe that's why "Allah" is written with one "l" in Aramaic.

The point is that the slang of "el-aw" in Aramaic and the slang of "Allawh" in Arabic sound the same, thus making the name of GOD Almighty in both Arabic and Aramaic be "Allah".

Jesus peace be upon him preached in Aramaic during his ministry.

 

Some Christians claim that "Allah" means "oak" in Aramaic:

I received an email saying that "Allah" in Arabic has one "h", while "Elaw (hhla)" in Aramaic has two "h"s, so therefore "Allah" and "Elaw" are different and "Allah" and "Ay-law (hla)" are the same, since "hla" has one "h" only like "Allah". 

My response to this is that the writing of the word GOD or any other word in the language is irrelevant.  We've seen above how the letter "h" is automatically inserted after the words that end with the "a" sound in Arabic. 

It's the pronunciation that counts.  For instance, there is a major difference between writing the word "know" and pronouncing the word "know" in English.  The "k" is irrelevant in pronunciation because it is not pronounced, but yet it is part of the word.  So if the English word "know" is pronounced exactly the same in another language and means the same thing, then it may not necessarily be written as "know" in that language.  It could be written as "no" and still be the same as "know" in English, but missing the letters "k" and "w".

Let us look at the name "Shawn" also.  In Irish, it is spelled as "Sean", where in English it is spelled as "Shawn".  Yet, in both languages it is pronounced as "Shawn" even though in Irish, the name is missing the letters "h" and "w" and has an extra "e" in it.

In the case of "hhla (Elaw = GOD)" in Aramaic, the letters "hh" are pronounced as "a" or "e", and the letters "la" are pronounced as "law".

In the case of "hla (Aylaw = Oak)" in Aramaic, the letter "h" is pronounced as "ay" or "ey", and the letters "la" are pronounced as "law".

So we can see just how the writing of words in different languages is different.   It is the pronunciation that ultimately counts.

The slang of "Elaw" and "Allawh" is the same.

Jesus peace be upon him preached in Aramaic during his ministry.

Few points to learn:

1- In the case of "Aalah" or "Aaloh" Aramaic slang pronounciation, it is almost the same as the "Allah" or "Allawh" Arabic slang pronounciation.

2- In the case of "Aalahaa" or "Aalohaa" Aramaic slang pronounciation, it is also almost the same as the "Allaha" or "Allawha" in the Arabic slang pronounciation.  "Allah" would be pronounced as "Allaha" or "Allaha" in Arabic if it's used in the middle of the sentence.  It can also be pronounced as "Allahi" or "Allahu" or "Allaho" depending on the grammar of the sentence.

3- The Hebew word "Elohim" is the plural of "Elowah", which is derived from the Aramaic word "Alaha", or "Elahh"; the same as the Arabic word "Allah" or "Allawh" in pronunciation.

As I mentioned above, by the way, the two "l"s in "Allah" are written in Arabic as one "l".  In Arabic, if the letter is pronounced twice after each others such as the "m" in "Muhammad", then it is written only once, and a special punctuation called "al-shaddah" is applied on the top of the letter to indicate that it is a double pronunciation.  So the point is, the Arabic "Allah" is written with one "l" and not two "l"s.  Perhaps the old Aramaic thousands of years ago was like that too, and maybe that's why "Allah" is written with one "l" in Aramaic ("Aalah" and not "Aallah" or "Allah").

 

Further proofs from brother Yishan Jufu:

Here is brother Yishan's response to a Christian who calls himself "Queball23" on the internet regarding the name of GOD Almighty in the Bible:

Queball has maintained that the name "Allah" is derived from "ILAH", a pagan name! And that "Allah" was derived from "ilah" through the use of the definitive "AL" in Arabic, which makes it "Al-Ilah" and then with dropping out of the "i", it becomes "Allah" meaning "The God"!

I answered his fallacies by stating that "Allah" is not what he claimed it to be, and is not "Al-Ilah" as he mentioned. Quennel cited some Muslims who confirmed his notion, however he failed to realize that the use of such expression as "The God" (al-ilah) is to denote the fact that "Allah" is The Only True God The Creator, and not to mean literally "The God". For one thing, "ilah" does not mean "God", it means "god" (notice that there is no capitalisation of letters in Arabic, it is used here for the western audience's sake).

When i replied to Quennel's views with the fact that the word "ilah" could also be spelled "elah" in English since there is no "i" & "e" in Arabic; and that the word "ilah/elah" means "god" generally, in Arabic; Quennel responded with the saying that "elah" means "oak tree" in Hebrew and not God.

Upon investigating a "Christian" Hebrew lexicon on the web at site: bible.crosswalk.com, i came across the word "elahh" which is Aramaic and used in the Hebrew bible.

The following is from bible.crosswalk.com:

Thee KJV Old Testament Hebrew Lexicon
Strong's Number: 0426
Original Word: hhla
Word Origin: corresponding to (0433)
Transliterated Word: 'elahh (Aramaic)'
Phonetic Spelling: 'el-aw'
Parts of Speech: Noun Masculine
Definitions:
- god, God
- god, heathen deity
- God (of Israel)

From the above, it was noticed that the word "elahh" does exist in the Hebrew bible and it means the above-stated definitions. Its phonetic spelling is 100% identical to that of the Arabic "ilah/elah" and its meanings do include the same "god" meaning. Quennel was surprised, to say the least, so he had to resort to some tactics to get out of the dilemma!  This time he tried to accuse me of telling a lie and posting an Aramaic word, not a Hebrew word from the Hebrew bible! This is the most silly argument, indeed! The word "elahh" is Aramaic, but is used in the Hebrew bible, so Quennel has no case. Then Quennel moved on to say that this word "elahh" had two "H"s in it and that this cannot be ignored! I replied that my interest was not in the spelling, but in the pronunciation and meaning.

But, knowing Quennel, he would not accept anything that proves his lengthy "anti-Allah" articles void and he kept on about the "extra H" in the word "elahh"! This is beyond our point of discussion, what i was trying to prove to him is that his false claims against the name "Allah" through the abuse of "ilah" were refutable since the Hebrew bible does contain a similar-sounding word which means exactly what "ilah/elah" (in Arabic) does.

It is therefore very easy to notice that "ilah/elah" (in Arabic) sound exactly the same as the Aramaic word "elahh" that is used in the Hebrew bible to mean -god,god (pagan deity), God, God (of Israel), etc.  I wonder if Mr. Gale would use the same argument against the word "elahh" also?!

The correct comparison is between "ilah/elah" (Arabic) and "elahh" (Aramaic) in phonetic spelling and in their meaning of "god". "elahh" is not the same as "Allah" in pronunciation, although one of its meanings is "God" and "God of Israel", but my emphasis was on the similar sound to "ilah/elah" (Arabic) and in it, "elahh", taking on the meaning of "god".

Quennel Gale can be silenced about his "anti-Allah" attitude and articles if one only consulted any Arabic translation of the Christian bible from Genesis to Revelation; one would be surprised to see the Christian bible using none other than the very word "ALLAH" for God Almighty The One True God The Creator! I ask Quennel and his Christian comrades to explain to us why does the Arabic translation of the bible use the name "Allah" for God and not the name "YHWH"? It will become even more interesting when one hears the claims of some Arab Christians that it was the Arab Christians who "sort of" developed the Arabic language that we know and that they were the ones to first use such a word as "Allah" and that the Arabic gospel was preached from the time of Paul!! If such claims were true, then why would the Arab Christians, and Paul {supposedly inspired by Jesus} use the name "Allah" for God Almighty? This is a big dilemma for Quennel Gale and for his brethren, one of his Arab brothers tried to insinuate the usual "Allah of Islam" is not The True God, or He is different from "Allah" of the bible! But this is absurd! We are not talking about nature or attributes of God here, we are talking about His One Name, the same name used in both the Arabic bible and in the Quran.

I would like also to point out to one more fact that is being circulated about the mention of "Allah" in the Hebrew bible, i.e. the deleted word "Alah". This word, according to some Christians, means "swear". So, I would not depend too much on it since we need to have something of concrete evidence and of acceptability from the Christian critics.

It should suffice to say that none of the anti-Islam critics has come up with any documented, archeological proof on the authenticity and the real and full pronunciation of "YHWH", which is supposed to be the name of God in Hebrew. We all know that "Yahweh" & "Jehovah" are not Hebrew words, the first includes inserted vowels to make possible the pronunciation of "YHWH", while the latter is a western version of "YHWH" with vowels!

Another fact, according to the bible, is that when Moses asked God about His name, He told him that His name is "I am that I am"! The Jews and Christians do a lot of manipulations and interpolations to "guess" the name of God, they make "YHWH" to mean "to be" or "the one who was, the one who is and the one who will always be"! Those are verbs and attributes, not a name! God has One name, and that's "ALLAH". If anyone has any doubts or proofs otherwise, let them bring their proof, starting with an archaeological evidence on how was "YHWH" pronounced in full with vowels, not the later-inserted ones!

One really wonders why do Jews not pronounce the name of God? Could this have anything to do with the fact that they forgot God's name at one stage in history, and that being afraid to mispronounce it from "YHWH", they chose to use literal biblical instructions of not taking God's name in vain?

In Islam and according to the Arabic bible and sincere Arab Christians, God has one name only and it is "ALLAH".

"Allah" is the name of God, it has no derivatives and no definitive & non-definitive formats.

The use of the pagan idol's name "al-lat" to try and prove that "Allah" is the masculine gender whereas "al-lat" is the feminine gender is ridiculous, since this can be refuted from the history of the early Arabs who used to worship idols including "al-lat", but they have always maintained that "Allah" was The Supreme God; The God of Abraham. The pagan Arabs, prior to Islam, never claimed that "Allah" is an idol, nor can any critic bring any proof to "Allah" being a name for any carved idol that was worshipped by the pagan Arabs. And as a matter of fact, the Quran rebukes the Arab pagans for taking "al-lat", "al-uzza" and "manat" as the daughters of "Allah"!

The Christian apologists try hard to refute Islam, and claiming that "Allah" is the name of the "moon god" worshipped by pagan Arabs, and that Muhammad [peace be upon him] came and made "Allah" to be "The Only True God" is a false and wicked statement. One only needs to read the Quran without any bias to notice that Allah forbids the worship of sun, moon and stars; to notice that Allah forbids us to follow the steps of Satan (the devil).

What the some Christians need to notice is that you cannot force your trinity on others, which is a man-made, later interpolated dogma. Just read your bible (OT & NT) with an open heart and notice what Jesus maintained about his status as compared to that of God who sent him. Start with John  17:3 for biblical proof that Jesus was no more than a special prophet of God to the children of Israel.

 

Further explanations from a Muslim brother, may Allah Almighty always be pleased with him:

The word Allah in Arabic is "The God" the word for god in Arabic is ILAH/ELAH as in "LA ILAHA ILALLAH" The word for God in Aramaic is Ilah/Alaha the same as in Arabic. The Language of Jesus was Aramaic not Hebrew, and the closest language to Aramaic is Arabic. In the English Translations of the bible, some translators use the word "ELI" for Elah/Ilah. Thus Jesus used the same word for God as the Arabs and the Quran. and God knows best.

LAI stand for Lembaga AlKitab Indonesia or Indonesian Bible Society.

please visit: http://www.alkitab.or.id/foreword.htm

Recently there was a big issue among Christians in Indonesia about the word 'Allah' used as God in the Indonesian's Bible by LAI. Some have said that 'Allah' is not a truth God, and should be used 'Elohim' instead. But LAI just keep quite.

The issue come to the peak when there was a group of Christians produced their version of Bible by removing the word 'Allah' as name of God and put 'Elohim' instead. This version of Bible has started to spread, and Christians in Indonesia have started to confuse, which is which????

In this critical condition, Indonesian Bible Society under United Bible Societies (UBS) - WORLDWIDE BIBLE SOCIETY has wrote a circular to defend that 'Allah' is really the God of every prophet, the article is "Penggunaan "Allah" dalam Alkitab" or in English is "The Using of "Allah" in AlKitab (Bible)" by Dr. Daud H.Soesilo (Email: ubs@mlg.mega.net.id), he start his explanation about who Is 'Allah' originally by:

"el, elohim, eloah adalah nama pencipta alam semesta dalam bahasa Ibrani, bahasa asli Alkitab Perjanjian Lama. Dalam bahasa Arab, allah (bentuk ringkas dari al ilah) merupakan istilah yang seasal (cognate) dengan kata Ibrani el, elohim, eloah."

in English....

"el, elohim, eloah is the name of the creator of the universe in Hebrew (Ibrani), the original language of the Old Testament. In Arabic language, allah (simplified form from from al-illah) is the cognated title with the word in Hebrew for el, elohim, eloah."

please visit the whole explination - all in Indonesia language: http://www.alkitab.or.id/jelas.htm

So this is clearify who Allah really is. He is the God of this universe and the God of every prophet.

To make you confirm about this matter please email to Dr. Daud H.Soesilo from UBS or write or Email to Mr. Supardan, the General Secretary of LAI, his address is:

He had a mortal sickness (leprosy) and had told Eeshoo (Jesus) in a letter that he had heard a great deal of him and his miracles. He said he believes in him , "you must be God or the son of God and I ask you to come and cure my sickness". Jesus wrote back and said that his time was occupied but he would send his two apostles (desciples), Didymas Mar Toomaa (Thomas) and Mar Addai (Thaddaeus). After he was cured, he ordered his entire kingdom to convert to Christianity. We
