Malaysia court rules non-Muslims cannot use ‘Allah’

Previously we have had a discussion on "Can Muslims copyright the word Allah" in conenction with a court ruling from Malaysia in 2009. This subject is back in the news today:

"A Malaysian court has ruled that non-Muslims cannot use the word Allah to refer to God, even in their own faiths, overturning a 2009 lower court ruling…". See this link.

  1. Eureka! At last the Malaysian court has found a "Muslim God” that at least does not exist in the Holy Quran. If we open Quran, we only find a Universal God of all peoples e.g.

    1:1. Praise be to Allah, the Lord of the worlds,

    2:115. And Allah’s is the East and the West

    2:142. …Say: The East and the West belong only to Allah;

    26:28. He said: The Lord of the East and the West and all that is between them, if you have any sense.

    73:9. The Lord of the East and the West — there is no god but He…

    114:1. Say: I seek refuge in the Lord of mankind,

    114:2. the King of mankind,

    114:3. the God of mankind,

    3:83. … And to Him submits whoever is in the heavens and the earth, willingly or unwillingly, and to Him they will be returned.

    13:15. And whoever is in the heavens and the earth makes submission to Allah only, willingly and unwillingly, and their shadows, too, morning and evening.

    If the attorney for the Christians had retorted with the following quote from Quran, I wonder if the Muslim Judge would had any answer:

    42:15. … say: I believe in what Allah has revealed of the Book, and I am commanded to do justice between you. Allah is our Lord and your Lord. For us are our deeds, and for you your deeds. There is no contention between us and you. Allah will gather us together, and to Him is the eventual coming.

    If Allah calls himself the Lord, King and God of Mankind, then the said declaration by the Malaysian court at least excludes Christians from mankind. In doing so, they not only discovered a "Muslim God" but also a new species outside the mankind, the "Christians" – a perfect "National Geographic" moment!

    Factually, they made a laughing stock of Islam – a perfect “Robert Spencer” moment.

    From Mohammed Iqbal:

    So Allah is no longer the "Rabb-ul-'Alameen" he was!

  3. Allah Ta'ala is not just the Lord of the muslims, but the Lord of everything single thing. He is "Rabb-Ul-'Alameen". How dare they put a limit to Allah's power and who he has power over! Don't these people have anything better to do than give a bad look to Islam and muslims?
