Dear Sentinel,
I beg to disagree with your statement in the 1st paragraph of this article that mentioned, "outrage on the part of Muslims" From the many comments made by several Muslim leaders, it is obvious that the UMNO Muslims are the ones outraged Most of the Muslims from PAS and PKR, including Dato Seri Anwar and Tok Guru Nik Aziz, have openly declared that it is in order Kindly note this error in reporting

From various comments by Muslims, it is as though only Malays and Muslims can used the Arabic name Allah If this is the case they should applied for the exclusive rights to use Allah from the Arabs themself Then we can see who is right
Its very clear that the main reason for all the fuses and objections is to prevent Muslims from apostasing and nothing else
Some Malay Muslims are trying hard to control its own failure to stamp the increasing support for the opposition

Ibat, Well said I like it when you say "A muslim should not be fearful of himself or his muslim brothers/sisters being led astray by a bahasa malaysia bible which use the name Allah for God, if his or her own akidah is steadfast"

The problem is there is fear mongering that weak muslims would be led astray becuase of the use

But let's get the picture straight The term "Allah" has been used by East Malaysians for as long as one can remember It was how their forefather's worship The use in Catholic Publication is meant for them (East Malaysians) They're doing/using, what their forefathers has used why an issue now? THere is no "agenda"

You have described Allah well from the perspective of Islam They have their perspective on their Allah The views are expected to be slightly different because of the BASIC FACT that you are from different religions Why must they change the practice of their forefathers?

The problem is in poor understanding of our fellow East Malaysians and their culture/practice And of course some parties stoking fear and suspicion among peace-loving Malaysians It's making a mountain out of a Molehill There is a political agenda, but certainly not a religious one

Malaysian Patriot, Thanks but at the moment it seems more disagree than agree with me I do know that in east malaysia, the bible in native language editions have used Allah since long ago The melayu (muslim) in Malaya probably didn't know that But then UMNO was not in east malaysia until recently in Sabah There was never a ketuanan melayu (muslim) debate in east malaysia Nobody needed to 'defend' Islam/ Allah in east malaysia  probably the muslims there knew that Allah can look after Himself, that if Allah does not consent anyone to recognise His Name as God He'll take care of that Glory be to Allah! So when a catholic publication wanted to use Allah instead of Tuhan in bahasa malaysia  the melayu (some  Nik Aziz didn't mind, Dr Asri didn't mind) from UMNO created a fuss to protect muslims (read malay), of course! So yeahbe you're rightall the fuss is political But I still wonder why the catholic herald would not use Allah for God in its english edition and all other language editions? I cannot accept that Allah can only be used in bahasa malaysia because Allah is not bahasa malayu origin

Religions divide people, eg India vs Pakistan Now it's happening in Malaysia also Use your brain to think Muslims believe that their God is the the true God Christians believe that their God is the true God Chinese believes the God is the true God It's clear that God is a creation of human imagination It's time to flush religions down the toilet The world would be a better place without religions

Consider the case of a Christian Arab coming to Malaysia and using words like "Allah" and "assalaammualaikum" Since he is not a Muslim he can be prosecuted under some of our state laws - for speaking his mother tongue?

Wise Guy,
You are free to believe or not believe in religion But I disagree with you that the world would be a better place without religion Thousands of years before any constitutionalised nation exist, before any written law exist by man exist, humans have been commanded not to kill as they like This is just one example where the law laid down by religion precedes human written law Even if you have to go to war IN DEFENCE of yourself, there is a code which limits your conduct in war, at least that is the rule in Islam Yes, there are stupid believers who are stupid enough to conduct their lives against the rules of the religion they profess, which gives ammunition for athiest to counter religion and God's existence Many wars are fought for political greed but made out to be in the name of religion and God Many arguments between believers (even of the same religion) are today stupid, and ignorant of the basic tenets of their religion to be tolerant, moderate and really only driven by lust for power and greed for property

A man who does not believe in God is a man who believes himself an accident

Bahasa Malaysia Government Punya ha? Macham Lembu?
written by Lightning Raju,  04,  
The legal point is very simple In Bahasa Malaysia the word for God is Allah Bahasa Malaysia is the National Language The policy of the Malaysian government is that everyone should use the National Language-Bahasa Malaysia This is what the Herald Newspaper is trying to doThe question of whether it will mislead Muslims has nothing to do with it Frankly, its an insult and absurd to think that a Muslim will be that stupid So when the Government stops a Newspaper from using the national Language it is illegal-That is the decision made which is correctNo big fuss necessary!

The other point I would like to raise is why is the Government involved in this ? They should have been neutral on this issuethe Government has NO LOCUS STANDI as they are not a relevant party Either MUIS or some relevant party can appeal The Government is Barisan Nasional inter alia-why are they taking sides of the Muslim population when we have 1 malaysia?

The Justice who ruled that 'Allah' can be used by the Catholic Herald is non-Muslim

The fanatics will likely appeal to a Muslim judge to overturn this decision

Ask any Arabian, they'll tell you Allah means God

Allah is not the NAME of any god Allah is simply the Arabic word for God

Depending on your religion, you  have different opinions on who your god is In islam, Allah is the one and only God In Christianity, because they believe that Jesus is King, and that Jesus is God, so God has been personified (God made man in the likeness of Himself) Therefore, in saying that Allah = Jesus, is proposterous Our Muslim friends should know better that in Islamic context, Allah is the one and only God A person with strong islamic faith would never be confused and convert to Christianity over a minute terminological discrepancy

Hello Malaysia fellow Muslims, stop fredding and cry baby over petty religious issues, we are already now living in a 2nd decade of 21st century, so wake up and move on in life There are far more important issues the world have to deal with than brooding over issues that leads to nowwhere
Stop that senseless protests that don't hold water !

written by Dogboy,  04,  
Why the Herald use Allah instead of Tuhan is not relevant here The principal and upholding the federal constitution is the focus and the Herald has done nothing wrong Why bow to UMNO pressure just because they use religion to divide and conquer Only certain Muslims feel threatened and are protesting and that is because they are fanatics and bigots and use religion to touch base with what they hope is a majority Muslim support base

Its a fact the word Allah does not belong to Muslims so these morons should just give it up as they are showing thir bigotry for the whole world to see Now you know why foreigners prefer to retire in Thailand than Malaysia, eventhough Malaysia has thrown down the welcome mat more so than Thailand

Malays are rotting in the core
written by kanchil,  04,  
The only way to prevent anyone from using the word "allah" is to copyright it - which the Muslims/Malays cannot do Yet they are behaving like they have the copyright! This is the incomprehensible logic of their intellect They are struggling to contain their demise as their world becomes rotten in the core No moral values, no discipline, no intellect, not hardworking, sexually depraved and meiopic to the extreme No wonder the Malays have failed to govern the country as it should be Anyway the Malays have no "Malaysian nationalism" They only have "Malay nationalism" - which will explain all their policies That's why the country in going down the drain but the Malays have their pockets full of money All policies are made to benefit the Malays The non Malays do not figure in their planning That's how Malaysia will be taken over by another power The Malays couldn't care less as long as they have money in their pockets Like the Malacca sultanate of 400 years ago, the Chinese will have to bail out Malaysia again

Allah is not the sole property of the Malays
written by vsp,  04,  
I read in one of the UMNO-supported blogs saying that Islam is the sole property of the Malays He is wrong, Islam is a universal religion, just as Christianity, Buddhism, Hinduism are universal religions Where in the constitution was it stated that Allah cannot be used by others? The east Malaysians and the Sikhs have been using the word "Allah" for hundred of years I doubt that Sabah and Sarawak would be willing to be part of Malaysia if it were known that they cannot use the word "Allah" in their worship of God In so doing, have they insulted Allah and have the law being thrown at them? No, it did not happen for years since Independence, but only recently when UMNO were forced against the ropes by their opponents did they exploit the sanctity of Islam to sanction their misdeeds

Religion is a very powerful tool and whoever controls it wrongly would bring untold misery for the masses History is replete with many horrible atrocities, all committed in the name of religion The decaying Roman Catholic Church before the Reformation, Hilter and many Islamic regime today all used religions as the basis for their justification to do harm

Even before there is a Islam, the word Allah was used Islam, Christianity and Judaism worship the same God so it doesn't matter what name is used for God It can be interchangeable with the language that is being used Christianity believe that the message of God should be transmitted in the local language unlike Islam Hadhari which wants its believers to imitate the Arabs So like the east Malaysians who only speaks the local language, Allah has been in use for many years Mahathir confirms this: "I accept the term 'Allah' had been used in Sabah and Sarawak before the two states joined Malaysia" For Christians who speak other languages such as English, Chinese or Tamil you don't find them referring to God as Allah because that was not the term of God in that particular language Just like if we use the term "car" in English and "kereta" in Malay it doesn't mean that "car" is a horse and "kereta" is a buffalo Both refer to a road vehicle with four wheels

Was there anywhere in the Koran where the name of Allah is confined within the Islamic religion only? In fact the Koran states that it would be a confirmation of the greatness of God if other religion should refer him as Allah Because "Allah" is the term for God in the Arabic language In Islam Allah is unfathomable to the mind of mere mortals Words are insufficient to describe the attributes of God That's why there are 99 other names for Allah and still it would be wanting Allah is all-powerful It's only men who have inferiority complex who want to confine Allah in a gilded cage As a Muslim one should be proud that other religion wants to use Allah as a term of reference

Let's be frank about it The Islam that is practiced in Malaysia is purely political Islam It is about control and stupefying the masses into accepting man-made rules UMNO which is so corrupt does follow the true dictates of Allah but only uses Islam to perpetuate their rule with cruelty and unIslamic methods Religion is just a tool for them to silence any divergent views Pity the Malays who do not see this subterfuge of UMNO The Malay race will not progress for a thousand years with such siege mentality and inferiority complex until they throw off this yoke of UMNO bondage

Malays don't own the word "Allah" The romanised script belongs to the West Even Jawi is Arab's

Only the original people Muslims ie the Arabs can decide

The way it looks "Allah" in the Middle East is used by all the 3 peoples of the BOOK Period

if the islam religion fears so greatly that its members  depart to another religion, so greatly fears this that the islam government must use force to prevent such migrations, that says much about the weakness of isalm, surely i will never be your friend if you use force, or threats of force, upon me but if i use loving kindness and acceptance that men and women are free to choose their own path to god, or allah, then we  be friends

Did Islam copy from Christianity?
written by Bible-came-first,  05,  
"According to the Judeo-Christian perspective, Islam did not exist until the ministry and preaching of Muhammad in the seventh century CE Originally portrayed as the anti-Christ by many Christians, the image of Muhammad later began to be portrayed somewhat more favorably among certain elements of the Christian clergy and scholars However, the Judeo-Christian perspective still perceives that Islam originated with Muhammad, and that Muhammad created Islam by borrowing heavily from both rabbinical Judaism and from Christianity Concerning the alleged borrowing from Christianity, it is traditionally held that Muhammad most frequently took from the teachings of the Eastern churches and from a variety of apocryphal Christian writings Thus, from the Judeo-Christian perspective, Islam originated in the seventh century CE as an amalgamation of Judaism and Christianity

To summarize, the Judeo-Christian perspective posits the following step-wise evolution of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam Primitive or proto-Judaism can be traced to the primitive covenant between Allah and Noah However, Judaism really has its origin with the covenant between Allah and Abraham, a covenant, which was exclusively inherited by Isaac, then by Jacob, and then by the Israelites The covenant was then reformulated with Moses, and Judaism as a full-blown religion began Central to the maintenance of Judaism as a distinct religious practice was the temple cult, with its focus on the act of sacrifice at the Solomonic Temple in Jerusalem Thereafter, various Israelites strayed from observance of the covenant, resulting in Allah sending prophets, who reaffirmed the Mosaic covenant, but neither added to nor modified it This state of affairs continued until the new covenant of Christ, from which Christianity emerged Almost 600 years later, Muhammad, borrowing heavily from both rabbinical Judaism and from Christianity, created the religion of Islam"

"Allah" is Arab's!

"Tuhan" is Malay's

So go ask the Arabs whether the people of the BOOK can use their word "Allah"?

Why the Malays for goodness sake The masses can't even read & understand the Arabic Koran!

Will the UMNO malay like to ban the use of Satan ?? They  be fitted well as the later Satan is
also read along with ALLAH in the Quaran Just my guess they will do that

Will that make the Arabs furious later over the monopoly of "Allah" which is meant for the peoples of the BOOK just like it stupidly stole the Indonesian cuisines and called them Malaysian Then Indonesia bergan to react

Malaysia really bodoh Caling its space tourist "astronaut" on par with the Russian cosmonaut, Chinese taikongnaut and American astronaut It should be called "angkasa-nut"

Religion was created so that we don't feel so lonely on this planet which is so very tiny when compared to the whole universe God was created so that we have a direction & that someone is always there to guide us (like a teacher) Religion keep us safe, focused & able to go thru with this life you have on this planet That is good

Unfortunatelyreligion becomes negative when it has been abused or overused And that is what happens now

There is no heaven or hell It's all in your imagination & beliefs There is earth & the universe

A Malaysian court on Wednesday suspended a ruling that allowed a Catholic newspaper to use the word "Allah", after the government argued the decision could cause racial conflict

Malaysia's high court ruled last week that the Herald weekly had the right to use the word "Allah", after a long-running dispute with the government in the Muslim-majority nation

The paper has been using the word as a translation for "God" in its Malay-language section, but the government argued it should be used only by Muslims

Attorney-General Abdul Gani Patail welcomed the high court's decision to issue a stay order pending an appeal on the ruling in favour of the church, which triggered a series of protests from Muslim groups

"I made the request for a stay as it is a matter of national interest," Abdul Gani said at the court

UMNOputras patented the name "Allah"
written by vsp,  07,  
If the UMNOputras can do this to the Christians, who's to prevent them from doing the same thing to their fellow Muslims Since now they want to copyright the name "Allah" and the priesthood of Islam Hadhari will definitely serve their every wishes faithfully, don't you think that those fellow Muslims who oppose them will be declared unbelievers and will be stopped from using the name "Allah" Remember a few years back there was an attempt by the UMNOputras to pressure the Agong to declare PAS as infidels and to ban them? Real frightening scenario indeed!

In 1970s, the Government reversed English among non-Malays for the simple reason to undevelop themIn contrast Mara and other SEGREGATED Malay Institutions, students of Malay origin were taught in Englishtoday, many Non-Malays cant speak good EnglishThis was teh educational genocide created by the mischevious and malicious Razak Today his son is doing the same thing-now he wants to slevt which word can be English and whats its connatation-cannot blow hot and cold

The Malaysian government is so scarred that Malays will become confused if other religions use the word Allah It is so silly to assume that the Malays are by nature stupid and unable to reason The word Allah was use by Arabic Christians some 300 years before Prophamet Mohammed and no body can claim exclusive rights to it, especially the mongrels who destroy places of worship

ARABHAHIM FAITH- What wrong using the Arabic Word "ALLAH" to GLORIFY GOD? I am sure HE will be angry if we use HIS name to KILL, DESTROY or IN VAIN Is this so called 1 Malaysia policy? 1 Malaysia mean no racial or religious based POLICY or What

Mahathir has lamented that it is not good to cast Malaysia as bad over the Allah issue I am not sure if he has realised that this man who built megastructures failed miserably to unite the races in Malaysia In fact under his rule, the communities have become so divisive by the Bumiputra policies, that it has become difficult for subsequent governments to rebuild the broken bridge A persons greatest achievement in Life is to build bond between communities and not build big buildings Your comments are neither valued nor warranted

One way to solve the 'Allah' problem is to prohibit the non-malays to study Bahasa Melayu They are to be schooled in English, speak English and live like English After all, these non-malays like to migrate to non-mulim countries So the non-malays could be banned from using the Arab word 'Allah'

written by Wilson Pereira,  26,  
Some Malays are begining to think that ALLAH is a name of a Malay God and hence they have exclusive rights to its usage eventhough it was originally used by Arabic Christians Such is the level of illiteracy, other nations are laughing at their stupidity The learned and diligent judge has quoted numerous examples to explain why the Arabic word Allah can be used by other races Some of the Malays are so "thick and stupid and brainwahed" nothing can educate them

The arrests by the Malaysian Police of bloggers who were stating facts only go to show that Malaysia is a Police State This is not uncommon in a “failing state” Look at Iran, Zimbabwe and Congo to name a few Many bloggers have fled the country The Allah is issue is a deception! When the issue is raised why select a Chinese Catholic Judge? In Anwar Ibrahim’s trial-why an Indian (so called Christian Judge), the late so and so…?

There is no Freedom of Speech, Assembly or Rule of Law in Malaysia-the exception is UMNO members (The Rogue Party) Over the past 50 years the Barisan Nasional has “rolled back” all the institutions that were set up by the British-the Civil Service, Judiciary, Police, and Anti-Corruption among many others One only needs to compare what was part of Malaysia, Singapore to see how rotten Malaysia is! Any fool can see that During the Mahathir era and after, no loans were taken from the World Bank Malaysian politicians were singing praises of how wonderful Malaysia was not to need the World Bank I am not a great supporter of the World Bank but my point will be made soon Even a hawker will tell you never to use your own money in business-always get money from the bank You  need your personal money for a rainy day But there is a reason why Malaysia never borrows from the World Bank like all developing countries The Malaysian government does not want to be accountable Petronas is a cash cow The World Bank requires –good governance, transparency and accountability-something that bloggers were talking about were necessary! Malaysia and Mahathir uses the Malaysian treasure-Oil (Petronas) like a blank cheque The Royalty enjoyed from this During Mahathir’s time-$150 billion was lost Mahathir now claims $250 billion was lost from Petronas during Badawi’s time! Unbelievable! Yet if you walk around the outskirts in Malaysia you will see poverty UMNO has kidnapped all the democratic institutions to stay in power Infact the illegal act of taking over the Perak State Assembly goes too show how dangerous and desperate The Najib Government is Najib is in a quagmire: if he allows democracy, his party will lose control of the country and if that happens-he will be in jail with three quarters of his cabinet If he refuses to allow democracy, the World will take notice –all will be clear and obvious that his government is undemocratic So we have a semblance of democracy from time to time to appease foreign governments The trumped charges against Anwar Ibrahim make Malaysia a laughing stock I say this because the doctors examining the victim say that he was not raped (buggered) It’s all a figment of imagination conceived by the executive, supported by a bunch of fools who are the legislative body and carried out by a moron –His Majesty’s Attorney General of Malaysia! What a comedy While all this is going on and in the ruling government made up by parasites

Finally, many Malaysian are convinced that the growing disrespect for other religions, including the recent allegations of pigs being thrown at two mosques is being organized by the UMNO led Barisan government Many right-thinking Muslims have no objections to Non-Muslims using the word Allah Khalid Ahmad from PAS (Malaysia’s Islamic Party in the opposition) supports Non-Muslim use of the word Allah in the Bible But Zulkifli Nordin retorts “Noone can stop me from defending Islam” Nordin is the type of person in Malaysia who should be arrested for inciting religious violence I am informed that the party is taking action against him and hopefully he will be expelled from the party and would in all likelihood be welcomed with open arms at UMNO HQ

There is a grave danger that the Barisan Nasional government has unleashed Muslim fanatics (MFs) to create racial/religious disaffection to avoid answering a multitude of questions now being posed by right thinking Malaysian Hishamuddin Hussein Onn is one of them and there are many The danger is that the Barisan Government is playing with fire We have seen ethnic/religious tension culminating in violence To name a few Bosnia/Croatia/Serbia, Sri Langka, N Ireland, Rwanda and the list can go one Does Malaysian want that or do we want an honest Government?

Allah is the name of the muslim god It was used prior to Muhamamd by Arab Jews, Christians and pagans Before Muhammad it was a title, 'head god' and ilah is the arabic word meaning god Muhammad changed allah to be a proper name Allah is not the name of the God of the Jews Christians etc, but it is a word used by Arabs and Arabic speakers (non muslim) to refer to their God What I want to know is, why would non muslim Malaysians fight for the right to speak Arabic? To me it doesn't make sense
