Allah was the name of the principal though not the only deity in pre-Islamic pagan Mecca. He stood supreme over and above all the other gods just as the Ka'ba was pre eminent among the other sanctuaries - also called Ka'ba(s) - of Arabia.
He was Lord of Mecca.
In reality, Allah isNOTthe God of Israel, but the PERSONAL NAME of the 'divine spirit' that according to the beliefs of the pagan Arabs,RESIDED in the
Black Stone meteorite - embedded in the wall of the Ka'ba - that was VENERATED by the pagan Arabians long before Muhammad and his Quran.
The Allah of pagan Arabia was only the NAME (not a TITLE) of the supreme god at the head of their Pantheon of gods and goddesses similar to Jove/ Jupiter or Zeus in the pantheons of the gods of the Romansand the Greeks.
Just as Jove and Zeus were NOT the One and Only God of Israel,
neither was Allah.
By understanding this most fundamental of facts regarding the Trinity of:
Muhammad, Quran and Allah, everything which is otherwise so perplexing, contradictory, utterly incompatible with the Bible in Time and Space and totally incomprehensible about the Quran becomes CRYSTAL CLEAR.
ALLAH is NOT The GOD of ISRAEL. ALLAH is NOTGOD.
Allah is Muhammad's own ALTER EGO projected onto the persona and into the mouth of ALLAH, the supreme PAGAN DEITY of Arabia.
Hence, according to the Quran, the Arabised name of the God of Israel and the god of the Muhammadan Muslims was made one and the same: ALLAH.
This was accomplished despite the fact that the God of Israel has NONAME and most certainly NOT Allah.
In the Torah,God told Moses when he enquired about the Almighty's name, He replied-
Exodus 3: 14 "I am, who I am" which is YAHWEH, a term repeated in the Bible over 6800 times, but never ALLAH.
Actually, in the Arabic language, God is called al Ilah, similar to the HebrewElohim.
For the last1400 years, the followers ofMuhammad have succeeded in perpetrating one of the greatest falsehoods that was ever insinuated into the human consciousness, namely, thatAllah was or is theGod of Israel.
Their triumph fas been soINCREDIBLY successful, that even most of the greatest authorities on the Arabic language, the Quran and the history of the Arabs, were FORCED into TRANSLATING the name Allah into GOD as happened withAlfred Guillaum'stranslation of Ibn Ishaq's 'Sirat Rassul'l Allah',Muhammad'sbiography.
The following verses will make the above statements very clear:
2: 133Were ye witnesses when death appeared before Jacob? Behold he said to his sons: "What will ye worship after me?" They said: "We shall worship thy Allah [Ilahaka]and the Allah [Ilaha] of thy fathers of Abraham Isma`il and Isaac the one (true) Allah [Ilahan] to Him we bow (in Islam) [Muslimoona]"
*** The deliberate mistranslation of the word God (Ilah) to Allahwas done to mislead the reader as to the true meaning of the verse. These attempts at falsification by the translators of the Quran abound in thousands of cases.
In the above, the word Allah does not exist but only that of Ilah/God which is repeated three times in one single verse. Hence it confirms the fact that Allah is NOT God/Ilahbut theNAMEof a god***
3: 62This is the true account: there is no God [Ilah]except Allah; and Allah He is indeed the Exalted in Power the Wise.
*** In the above, it is made crystal clear thatAllah is ONLY the NAME of a god***
18:110 Say: "I am but a man like yourselves (but) the inspiration has come to me that your God [Ilahakum] is one God [Ilah]: whoever expects to meet his Lord [Rabbihi] let him work righteousness and in the worship of his Lord [Rabbihi] admit no one as partner"
21: 108 Say: "What has come to me by inspiration is that your Allah [Ilahakum] is One God [Ilah]: will ye therefore bow to His Will (in Islam) [Muslimona]?"
29:46 " And dispute ye not with the People of the Book except with means better (than mere disputation) unless it be with those of them who inflict wrong (and injury): but say "We believe in the Revelation which has come down to us and in that which came down to you; Our Allah [Ilahuna/God] and your Allah [Ilahakum/God] is one; and it is to Him we(all of us) bow (in Islam)."
*** The translation of the word Ilahakum to Allahis obviously and deliberately wrong and misleading since it should read "… your God…".
The name Allah does not exist in the above verse***
Several translations of the Quranic verses above were deliberately falsified to mislead the readers into believing and assuming that the word Allah denotes God Almighty
- by substituting Allah for God/Ilah - when in fact this is not the case.
They intentionally mistranslate the Arabic word ILAH which actually means GOD into the proper pre Islamic name of the pagan Arabian god of the Black Stone,ALLAH.
This methodology of falsifying and contorting the facts is used incessantly by the Muhammadan exegetes and translators to perfect their agenda of misleading the lisreners or readers into believing that the Allah of pagan Arabia was and is the name of the Almighty-the God of Israel- while in fact it was the name of the pagan deity of the Meccan Arabs that Muhammad had no choice but to incorporate into his cultic ideology and 'Islamise' it.
It is extremely important to point out - in confirmation of the above statements - that of all the idols of pagan Arabia, Allah was the only deity in the Ka'ba that had no statue or effigy to revere since it was actually the Black Stone embedded into the wall of the Ka'ba.
Hubal on the other hand, had a statue erected right in the centre of the Ka'ba. To suggest that the polytheistic pagan Arabs never created an effigy to representAllah is illiogical, unbelievable and unreasonable and yet this is exactly what the Muhammadan scholars would like the rest of the world to believe contrary to all the information available that points otherwise.
The fact that the word Allah, was already familiar to the pagan Arabs long before Muhammad and his Quran is attested to both in Ibn Ishaq's 'Sirat Rassul'l Allah' and in the Mu'allaqa of the poet Zuhair (line 27f):
Keep not from Allah what your heart enfolds,
Thinking it is hid;He knows each word and deed.
Payment may lag, all booked and kept in store
For the Last Day, or vengeance come with speed.
The most remarkable statements in the above poem are the allusions to
'deeds…booked' and the 'Last Days', concepts that were totally alien in the simple and very primitive religion of pagan Arabia but was certainly known through the Jewish and Christian traditions.
Just as important is the fact that Muhammad actually copied from this poetry as well as from others - Imru'l Qais; another Christian poet - what suited him to put in his Quran:
11: 5 "Behold! they fold up their hearts that they may lie hid from Him! Ah! even when they cover themselves with their garments He knoweth what they conceal and what they reveal: for He knoweth well the (inmost secrets) of the hearts"
is almost identical to the above poem.
29: 61 If indeed thou ask them who has created the heavens and the earth and subjected the sun and the moon (to His Law); they will certainly reply "Allah." How are they then deluded away (from the truth)?
39: 3Is it not to Allah that sincere devotion is due? But those who take for protectors other than Allah (say): "We only serve them in order that they may bring us nearer to Allah." Truly Allah will judge between them in that wherein they differ. But Allah guides not such as are false and ungrateful.
43: 87 If thou ask them Who Created them they will certainly say Allah: how then are they deluded away (from the Truth)?
Muhammad did not have to invent the name Allah because it was already in use by the Arabians and that is why the Quran does not need to explain what the name means. After all, his father's name was Abd'Allah.
It was not Muhammad who created, invented or discovered the concept of the One and Only God, because it was this existing concept which inspired Muhammad to create a scripture for his Arabians similar to that of the Jews and Christians.
Over the centuries the Arabian Jews & Christians used the name of Allah in their dealigs with the pagan Arabs, a fact which can easily be derived from numerous Hadiths.
It is not beyond reason to assume, that the powerful presence of the Jews and Judaised Arabs in Arabia- especially in the areas of Madina and Mecca - over a period of almost a thousand years, had a significant influence on the primitive religion of the Arabians.
Further influences were added through the later arrival of the Christians in Arabia. It is an incontrovertible fact, that in Arabia,Allah became identified through Christian and Jewish sources as the Supreme Being, the Lord over all the other deities of Arabia.
Were this not the case, the Quran would have been totally unintelligible - in the manner it was composed, since it did not have to explain the term Allah - to the Meccans and other pagan Arabs.
It is hence abundantly clear that the listeners to Muhammad's'revelations' had already heard or known about Allah and other Biblical stories and characters from Christians & Jews long before Muhammad.
Both the pagan Arabs and Muhammad were surrounded by monotheistic influences for centuries before his alleged 'revelations'. The Hanifs for example were monotheists and believed in the God of Abraham, and Khadija,the first wife of Muhammad belonged to this sect and had an enormous impact on Muhammad's frame of mind, ideas and thoughts.
Allah was already - in the conception of the pagan Arabs - the Creator of the world, the Giver of all life on Earth, the Provider of rain, the Supreme God, etc.
Pagan Arabs were already named Abd-Allah or Abd al Ilah, meaning the slave of Allah or the slave of god.(Ibn Ishaq 51).
Muhammad's only objection - and POLEMIC against their theology - was that they were not able to conclude, that there can be only One God - to the exclusion of all others - Who has no partners (Ishrak).
The mission of Muhammad - as the Quran repeatedly asserts - was not to proclaim the existence of Allah but to deny the existence of all the other deities.
This was in effect the re-enacting of the dramatic story of the HebrewAbraham to the Arabs' Muhammad; the story of how Abraham destroyed all the lesser gods of his tribe and allowing no others besides the One and Only God.
The followers of Muhammad attribute the name Allah as the proper one of their god
- like the Yehweh of the Hebrews - and not as a generic name.
TheQuran repeatedly associates the Israelites and Jews with Allah as in : Moses was commanded by Allah(2:67);
The Children of Israel wanted a king to fight in the cause of Allah (2:246).
One of the greatest ironies about the monotheism of Muhammadan Islam is the fact that the Allah of Muhammad did not escape its roots in PAGANISM because even after Muhammad, his 'daughters' are still with him:
In the mythology of Pagan Arabia, Allah had three daughters:Al Uzza (Venus), Al Lat (Moon) and Al Manat (Fate).
They appear on top of almost every mosque and on some of the flags of many Muhammadan countries. These are the STAR (Uzzah/ Venus) and the CRESCENT (Lat/ Moon).
The idea that the crescent represented the fertile Middle East territory is a figment of the imagination of some Western and Arab historians who missed the actual meaning of these symbols.
According to the Quran of the Meccan Period, any one who believes in Allah
- who had by then been transformed into the One and Only God of Israel - such as the Jews, Christians and Sabeans (they were actually pagans) will be rewarded in paradise (2:62).
According to the tradtions, all the earlier conciliatry verses of the Quran from the Meccan Period were later ABROGATED by a very unknowing and fickle Allah, by those emanating from the Madina Period.
The Muhammadan version of 'Islam' is based on the belief not only that Allah is One but that ALSO, Muhammad is his messenger which is why the Jews and Christians have not been included under its terminology.
When the Quran is studied in great detail, the researcher will realise that most of it is only a reflection of Muhammad's own personalTHOUGHTS,FEARS, HATREDS, ANGER,LUST, JEALOUSY andAMBITIONS.
Allah is shown to be actually only Muhammad's ALTER EGO.
He conveniently and cleverly put words in the 'mouth' of the unsuspecting Allah and called them 'revelations'.
In Muhammadanism, Allah is only a figurehead while Muhammad is the real driving force and the Model of Behaviour who must be closely emulated by his followers.
Muhammad's intercessory powers that get people into a Paradise full of beautiful women and boys with unlimited SENSUAL AND CARNAL PLEASURES that his followers could rarely attain on earth.
The same Allah, who, according to the Quran and Ahadith, has PRE-DESTINEDhumanity -thus depriving them of free will- would with bountiful mercy and compassion, send millions of them as 'UNBELIEVERS' to his Hell Fire for no fault of their own while he watched them roasted and tortured with glee and great satisfaction.
While the God of Israel forbade His followers from ever mentioning His name in vain, the Muhammadans pronounce the name Allahhundreds of times a day, every day of their lives, invariably in vain.
The moment people comprehend, that Allah is NOT the
God of Israel, all of the Quran's contradictions, inconsistencies, historical dislocations, theological anomalies, grammatical errors etc,become crystal clear as the product of Muhammad's own
Alter Egoprojected unto the persona and into the mouth of the unsuspecting ALLAH, the pagan rock god of the Ka'ba, and have nothing whatsoever to do with anyDivine Inspirations.
