Can We Use Allah in the Bahasa Malaysia Bible?

By all means you are most welcome. Such a beautiful word and most accurate to refer The Almighty God according to ISlam. SubhanAllah .. MasyaAllah the Christians believers in Malaysia and Indonesia particularly(leave out the middle east because Allah is God in their arabic language) do believe in Muslim God Allah s.w.t. and thats why they vehemently stress to be allowed to use Allah in the Malaysian and Indonesian bible. I love u Christians better than the Jews. So thoughtful, i guess the word Tuhan(Melayu) and Gusti(Indonesia)are not linguistically accurate to be referred as God in your bible or i personally think u need to engaged a professional translator to translate the bible to bahasa malaysia and indonesia or u will end up with other new Christians dominants and sects soon.

And i would suggest a new name for the Christians(non arabic descent ) as Christian Hadhary cos they so much love to use Arabic language in their Bahasa Malaysia and Indonesia bible translations. Peace be upon u. And please use Salam when u greet the fellow Muslims so that one day we will share the same masjid for prayers. Bi iznillah.

Maybe the Christians should also incorporate prophet Muhammad s.a.w into these bibles as he is the last messenger of Allah subhanawataala. Right? Or else ppl might confuse Islam and Christianity. I mean Christianity is an example of how colluded the relgion is. Now they're trying to collude the sanctity of Islam? Come On....

I am a Moslem... by all means you may use Allah to refer to the creator. It is "not" the creatore's name. If the moslem population is upset, then it's their loss for arrogance and ignorent. The problem is the people... not the religion.
