Allah is GOD in "Aramaic", the language Jesus spoke

Allah is GOD in "Aramaic", the language Jesus spoke

With Ramadan around the corner (generally accepted as tomorrow if the new moon is sighted)
I felt like doing some research and it turns out what my friend said is true (god is "Allah" in Armaic") and hopefully the Christians that knock on my door every few months will come back soon (although they promised to visit soon last time we spoke).

It is a historical fact that Jesus spoke the "Aramaic" language so naturally the Bible was also written in Aramaic. The Aramaic word for god is pronounced "Allah".

You'll also see other Christians and previous peoples such as the Jews and Pagans referred to god in the same way.

Just a small point about how Islam is the true and universal religion (I know every religion naturally claims this) and like all other religions it was revealed by the same (one) god so it is not a coincidence that all of the prophets brought essentially the same message yet only Islam believes in and accepts all of the books and prophets.

See it on Wikipedia:

The Aramaic word for God is alh- (Syriac dialect), which comes from the same Proto-Semitic word (*ʾilh-) as the Arabic and Hebrew terms; Jesus is described in Mark 15:34 and Matthew 27:46 as having used this word on the cross (in the forms el-i and l-i respectively

The word Allah is traditionally used by Muslims, but it is not used in Islam exclusively; Arab Christians and Arab Jews also use it to refer to the monotheist deity. Arabic translations of the Bible also employ it, as do Catholics in Malta (who pronounce it as "Alla"), and Christians in Indonesia, who say "Allah Bapa" (Allah the Father).

    Facts About Islam

    The Same Religion As Abraham, Moses, and Jesus

    Muslims believe that Islam started long before the Prophet Muhammad's time and was the same religion taught by the previous religions and Prophets.

    Qur'an 42:13 The same religion has He established for you as that which He enjoined on Noah - the which We have sent by inspiration to thee - and that which We enjoined on Abraham, Moses, and Jesus: Namely, that ye should remain steadfast in religion, and make no divisions therein: to those who worship other things than Allah, hard is the (way) to which thou callest them. Allah chooses to Himself those whom He pleases, and guides to Himself those who turn (to Him).
