Allah’s Name Not The Same In Qur’an!?

Is the Qur’an is perfectly preserved as the follower of Islam claims? Is every letter perfectly preserved? I’m here to exhibit this cannot be the case according to the Qur’an itself.[1]

The personal name of the god of Islam is Allah (highlighted in both the Arabic and English text), the name Allah is composed of an Alif (ا) the 1st letter of the two-syllable word, a Double Lam (ﻝﻝ), He (ه), and a small diacritical mark above the double lam called a ‘shadda together we get الله.

[1:1] Surat l-fātiḥah (The Opening)

This name Allah is specifically used only for the god of Islam, Islamicity expresses this in the following quote.

The word God in English is not a name of the one God like Allah or YHVH. It is the generic term used for any and every deity, … When Muslims use the word Allah they mean the one God they worship and adore; … This Allah is the same Allah that the holy Qur’an refers to. Neither Jews nor Christians connect to God in this very universal way.

Is Allah God’s Name or God’s CV?

Make no mistake Allah الله is a name, according to Islamic sites such as states is this way confirming Allah is a name, not a title.

According to Muslim scholars and theologians, the name Allah is better defined as “the proper name of the One who is necessarily existent in himself and who deserves all praises.” This dense definition encapsulates several of the most important attributes of the Creator and nuances the term to mean so much more than just ‘god.’ Furthermore, it appears that the name has its root in Semitic languages, with variations on the divine name for god being il, el, or eloah.

What Does ‘Allah’ Mean in Arabic?

We’ve established Allah is a name now to simplify this concept, let’s use the name, Muhammad. Removing a letter from this name would alter it. Here’s a simple illustration.

Does Muhammad = Uhammad?

Would Muslims agree Uhammad still means Muhammad? No! They would not if they were honest, can you see the problem? In the following verse 1:2 Allah’s name is missing a letter, notice the missing alif (ا).[2]

[1:2] Surat l-fātiḥah (The Opening)

Yet they still render it, Allah, as if there hasn’t been a change, this is the level of deception we face with Islam. This is not the only verse where their god’s name is missing a letter, go to an online Qur’an and type in Arabic ( لِلَّهِ) and see how many verses in which the Arabic text has a missing alif.[3]


Let’s not forget that this problem in the Qur’an is not the same as taking a word(s) from one language and translating them, neither is this a case of bad transliteration. We’re still in the original text (Arabic) and the name Allah is missing a letter altering the name of thier god.

Muslims need to answer why letters are dropping out of the name of their god? If their Qur’an is preserved as claimed then why are they translating changed names in the Arabic text the same?


[1] However, it should be clear from the discussion above that while the Tanakh and the New Testament (hence the entire Bible) have a dubious history, the same cannot be said about the Quran.  The preservation of the latter is a fact of history, and was a fulfillment of Allah’s promise: The Quran and Bible Blog (2014, February 9).

[2] Al-Azami asserts that this convention is one of shorthand abbreviation, believing there to have been an accompanying oral tradition to clarify the correct pronunciation and grammar. He states that the alifs were originally present, then dropped for abbreviation, and then reinstated in the reforms of Ubaydullāh b. Ziyād in the time of al-Ḥajjāj, circa the eighth/late first century. Noja-Noseda also suggests omitting alifs may represent an example of abbreviation to save space on an expensive piece of parchment. Intentional abbreviation of an understood pronunciation is a valid hypothesis for the omission, but there are some issues that need to be explored. First, there is no written evidence of a more fully written prior text that was then abbreviated. Instead, the earliest available manuscripts have the alifs missing. It seems a simpler explanation that omitting the alif was a normal convention within a flexible orthography that was later standardized, than that there was a fixed longer text that was abbreviated for economic or practical reasons.

Allah Takes Shahada!

Muslims pride themselves in believing that they worship 1 god called Allah, if this is true then is it possible that Allah converted to Islam? How can a god convert to Islam, if Allah converted to Islam this means there’s another Allah greater than him.

Let me direct you to their most trusted source the Qur’ān, since Muslims reject the Bible we don’t need to use the Bible to prove Islam is false because their own beliefs are full of contradictions. In Ali ‘Imran Allah took his Shahada, it reads:

3:18 Ali ‘Imran

[3:18]  Allah bears witness that La ilaha illa Huwa (none has the right to be worshipped but He),

How is Allah reverting to Islam unless there’s another Allah, perhaps our Muslim friends will be willing to explain how a god is becoming a Muslim?

This is why Allah doesn’t know if Allah will forgive, certainly if Allah is god he would know if he’s going to forgive someone or not, but Allah is saying he’s not sure (“it may be”).

4:99 An-Nisa

[4:99]  … it may be that Allah will pardon them. …

If Allah is god then he should say without question if he will pardon them or not, but here in Surah 4:99 Allah is unsure and says “it may be” he’s not sure that he will pardon them? And who is Allah if this is Allah speaking in Qur’ān, is he talking about another Allah just as he said there are other creators [Surah 23:12-14].

9:43 At-Tawbah

[9:43]  May Allah forgive you

Again Allah doesn’t know if Allah (another god) will forgive, this is the only way to make sense of the Qur’ān. If the Qur’ān is Allah’s literal word then he’s (Allah) is the one doing the talking in Qur’ān. Then Allah would be speaking to himself, why can’t Allah speak plainly and say “I will forgive you”?


The Qur’ān is a book from a god who doesn’t know if you can be forgiven because another Allah is the one who “May forgive”? This is confusing and cannot be a book from God. How is it their god took Shahada and converted to Islam as found in 3:18? These are the question we are asking Muslims to explain as their religion makes no sense.

We appeal to Muslims to search out these truths for themselves, if they’re not afraid of the truth then these theological problems should be addressed. Christians have since the beginning been upfront in our beliefs, they have been tried and tested and remain firm because they are founded upon the solid and sure Rock which is Jesus Christ Himself.

The LORD [is] my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; my God, my strength, in whom I will trust; my buckler, and the horn of my salvation, [and] my high tower.

Psalm 18:2

Mushrik Allah the First One to Commit Shirk

The 5 pillars of Islam are foundational to the religion, which are the Shahada (Faith) The confession of faith in one god (Allah) and his messenger Muhammad. Salah (Prayer) The 5 ritual prayers each day. Zakat (Almsgiving) giving a portion of a Muslim’s wealth to those in need. Sawm (Fasting) fasting during Ramadan. Hajj (Pilgrimage) The pilgrimage to Mecca required of every Muslim at least once in their lifetime.

What if I said the first one to commit shirk in Islam was their own god Allah? We’re going to touch upon the first pillar, providing proof from their own Qur’an that Islam doesn’t teach monotheism but in fact teaches polytheism. We’ll prove everything we have to say with the Muslims own sources.

According to the Qur’an Allah commanded the angels to prostrate (bow down in worship) Adam. For the angles to prostrate to Adam is an act of worship. Notice the only one who refused to bow down to Adam was Iblees (Satan).

In Surah 2:34 Satan refused to commit shirk but Allah was telling the angels to commit shirk by bowing down to Adam. It’s crazy to say but Satan according to Qur’an was doing the right thing by not bowing down to Adam (creature) while Allah wanted the angels to commit shirk.

Surah 7:11 we have angels prostrating to Adam again. Multiple times in the Qur’an we have Allah being a Mushrik this means the Muslims follow a god of idolatry and polytheism.

Surah 15:30 Allah commands the angels to worship Adam, to prostrate in adoration to a creature in this case Adam by the command of the Mushrik Allah.

Surah 17:61 all of these ayats prove that Islam is a religion of polytheism for even the angels commit shirk along with Allah. The only one we are to prostrate before is God alone, Christians only worship Yahweh we’re not told to bow down to creatures like the Muslims.

In the above Surah the Muslim translation is wrong, they are trying to hide the fact that the Arabic says (قُلْنَا) which is “We said”. But look at the deception, the translation says “when I said” they changed it.

We said to the angels, “Bow down to Adam”… In Surah 18:50 Allah uses the word “we” but Muslims say Allah is one, then why is Allah saying “we” shouldn’t he say I to avoid any confusion?

They tried correcting this with the English translation. Muslims always tend to reject the English translations and say only the Arabic is the Qur’an. Well they have a problem because the Arabic says “we” not “I”. Why would Allah want his angels to bow down to one of his creations and commit shirk? Read on to the end because the best part is saved for last.

The translations which use “I” are from the Abridged Explanation of the Quran, but if you compare this translation to the others like Yusuf Ali, Pickthall or Saheeh International you’ll notice they translated it as “We” which is correct if you go by the Arabic. This is a tactic Muslims have been using to deceive people into thinking Islam is a monotheistic.

Who can believe in such nonsense, here we supposedly have “god” commanding his angles to worship Adam saying, ‘Prostrate yourselves before Adam,’… Surah 20:116

By this point I think it’s clear that Islam is not a monotheistic religion. But it gets worse! Remember when I said wait until the end? Well the first pillar of Islam if you recall if the confession of faith. That is for a Muslim to believe in one god (Allah) and his messenger Muhammad.

It’s the second part which is a huge problem. Muslims are putting Muhammad on the same level as Allah committing shirk. Here we have a man who Muslims must confess in order for them to become Muslim? Have you ever thought why Muslims cannot just believe in Allah alone? That’s because the real god of Islam is Muhammad, he made up his own religion and in doing so committed shirk associating himself with Allah.

The Shahada is taking Muhammad and making him equal to Allah, because a person can only become Muslim by taking both Allah and Muhammad together; the entire faith is based upon a foundation of shirk.
