That is precisely what a handful of Malay Muslims want do to – they
call their God, Allah, and they don’t want Christians and Sikhs to call
him by the same name, as if there are different Gods. Should
Christians ban Muslims from using the word Allah because Jesus, and in
turn Christians used it before Muslims did?

Should Christians, Sikhs and others rejoice this oppressive decision?
The answer is an emphatic no. The responsibility for peace and harmony
in a given society falls squarely on the majority. In this instance,
as a part of the larger Ummah, we, the Muslims around the world have a
responsibility to protect the rights of minorities in Malaysia or
elsewhere. Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) said, when you see oppression, the
least you can do is to speak up. Thank God, we are following his

The Word Allah did not spring up with Islam, nor have Muslims created
it. The word Allah has been around, just like the Creator God has been
around forever. Quran, 112: 2-3, “God the Eternal, the Uncaused Cause
of All Being, He begets not, and neither is He begotten.”

Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) made it clear that he did not bring a new
religion to the world; Islam was continuation and completion of
religions that came before.
