Can Christians Say 'Allah'? In Malaysia, Muslims Say No

By Baradan Kuppusamy / Kuala Lumpur


"Why are the Christians claiming Allah?" asks businessman Rahim Ismail, 47, his face contorted in rage and disbelief. He shakes his head and raises his voice while waiting for a taxi along Jalan Tun Razak, a main thoroughfare in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia's capital. "Everybody in the world knows Allah is the Muslim God and belongs to Muslims. I cannot understand why the Christians want to claim Allah as their God," Rahim says as passersby, mostly Muslims, gather around and nod in agreement.

The reason for their anger is a recent judgment by Malaysia's high court that the word Allah is not exclusive to Muslims.

  • It's because they worship the same god, God is simple translation for Allah.

    They worship diffrent prophets.

    Eaither way Religios people are strange,That Scientology thing is just as silly as the rest of em are,And religios people cannot deny it because the belief is the same shit.

    Time too grow up people,Fairy tales and shit is getting old.

    • Not completely. They're both extortionary myths, rooted in terrifying the credulous, gullible and superstitous into conformity and obedience. And so it has.

    • That's because atheists don't adhere to dehumanizing bronze age mythology.

      You truely need to read the fable of the Emperor's new clothes. Then you'll understand why you are ridiculed for your ridiculous beliefs.

  • And yet, Muslims use "Jesus Christ" in the Koran, while claiming Jesus Christ was just a prophet and not the son of God.

    'Splain that.

    • Islam was plagerized from Christian and Jewish books.
      Muhammed,(may his soul burn in hell)), changed all the charactors into muslims, at a time when muslims did'nt exist.
      You are asking for an explanation for something that cannot be explained.
      A muslim will give you his version, but will back down when faced with writtin facts from the sunnah.

    • jesus is mentioned the quran and as Mighty Messenger. He has Mighty respects in the Muslim world. While some Christians here Not all, Put jesus in cartoons making fun of him or sometimes in porn. You ever watch Family guy or mad tv. Look at how they insult him. In the bible God Has sons by the Tounges. He says Moses is my sosn. does that mean that moses is gods son?

    • My point is that Christians are not burning mosques and killing Muslims just because Muslims use the name Jesus Christ in the Koran (especially since they deny the trinity).

  • 4:171 O People of the Book! Commit no excesses in your religion: Nor say of Allah aught but the truth. Christ Jesus the son of Mary was (no more than) an apostle of Allah, and His Word, which He bestowed on Mary, and a spirit proceeding from Him: so believe in Allah and His apostles. Say not "Trinity" : desist: it will be better for you
