What is God's Name in Arabic? Allah? El Elyon? Arab saints call God Allah, but some are calling Him Al Rub or Yeshua. Muslim Sheiks, Imams, and Mullahs are

filled with Sacred Rage as the Truth about Islam and its pagan Allah is getting out.


Who is he?
Where did he come from?
Is he the God of the Bible?



Any wise enemy is better than an ignorant friend.

What is God's Name in Arabic?


In the Islamic Catechism for East Africa and Aden in The Yemen the question is asked, "Is it possible to know God in His essence?" the correct answer is, "No one knows God but God himself; and whatever idea comes into your head about Him, God is quite different from that." ( FOOTNOTE 121:  213 / 325 / 544)

The primary objective of Part Three of this book has been to help you to really get to know Allah by going on the Hajj with him. I believe that you can truthfully say that you now know Allah as well as anyone can know a mythical god. But, you can also come to know the God of the Bible very personally.

The Bible, John 17:3, And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.

I have been walking with Him since I was seven years old, but this is nothing exceptional since millions of souls have gotten to know Elohim personally. May I introduce Him to you?

Adam and Eve were able to walk with Elohim.

The Bible, Genesis 3:8, And they heard the voice of the LORD God walking in the garden in the cool of the day...

Moses saw God physically from behind. (Bible, Exodus 33:21-23) In the days of The Lord Jesus Christ, Philip asked Jesus to show him the Father.

The Bible, John 14:9, "Jesus saith unto him, Have I been so long time with you, and yet hast thou not known me, Philip? he that hath seen me hath seen the Father; and how sayest thou then, Shew us the Father?"

Getting to know Elohim is the experience of every believer in The Lord Jesus Christ. From knowing Elohim and getting to know Allah, I conclude that Haji Allah and the God of the Bible have nothing whatever in common.

Their names didn't come from the same languages either, since Elohim, the God of Shem, changed the languages at Babel to make certain that His name was unique. I remind you of the evolution of Allah from the primal name in Babel of ancient Nimrod and Sumer, which was Hamitic. Enlil was his first name, then Ilah, IL, LIL, ILI, Ba'IL, Bel, Ba`al, ILmuquh, and finally, Allah.

We also saw that dozens of gods have contracted names with IL on the end or added to the front of the name. In every case, IL, or Allah, had a feminine counterpart to his masculine name. In the case of Elohim, the singular is EL, and the plural is Elohim, and that is all of the conjugation there is. From that glorious day when Adam first came into being and gazed at his maker and friend, the true God of the Bible has been Elohim, period, full stop-- there is no more to Elohim-- no wife and no harem. The only ones to try to marry Elohim to a woman are the Mormons, Freemasonry, and paganized Cabbalist Jews.

So, the great question now is, "What is the name of the God of the Bible in Arabic?" You must have already been asking that question. The Bible has many names for Elohim that are hyphenated, or in two parts. Nearly all start with a root characteristic of God and prefix or suffix EL.

The Arab reader will ask me why I am going to the Hebrew Bible for a name of God. The reason is that Arabs are the half-brothers to the Jews. For an Arab to rebel against the Hebrew Bible is to lower the truth to the level of a family feud. For that, go see Yassir Arafat or some Zionist agnostic. I have no patience with those who reduce everything to racial purity. We are seeking for truth, not Arabizing it. So, we ask two questions.


Question One:
How did Elohim introduce himself to Abraham?

Abraham was the father of Ishmael and Isaac, the patriarch half-brothers of the Arabs and Jews. This is a primal point in their heritage, and, as we saw in Chapter One and Two, Elohim gave promises to both Arabs and Jews through father Abraham.

In examining the Bible record we do find a name of Elohim given to Abraham for the first time. It is the name EL-Elyon in Genesis 14. In this account, the king of Sodom, where Lot the nephew of Abraham lived, had been taken captive by other kings. Lot and all the people of Sodom, and their possessions, were rescued without any loss of life by Abraham and his personal troops. The following is the meeting of Abraham and the returning king of Sodom, whom Abraham had just freed:

The Bible, Genesis 14:14 And when Abram (the earlier name of Abraham) heard that his brother was taken captive, he armed his trained servants, born in his own house, three hundred and eighteen, and pursued them unto Dan.  
15. And he divided himself against them, he and his servants, by night, and smote them, and pursued them unto Hobah, which is on the left hand of Damascus.
16. And he brought back all the goods, and also brought again his brother Lot, and his goods, and the women also, and the people.  
17. And the king of Sodom went out to meet him (
Abraham) after his return from the slaughter of Chedorlaomer, and of the kings that were with him, at the valley of Shaveh, which is the king's dale.  
18. And Melchizedek king of Salem brought forth bread and wine:
and he was the priest of the MOST HIGH GOD.
19. And he blessed him, and said, Blessed be Abram of the MOST HIGH GOD, possessor of heaven and earth:  
20. And blessed be the MOST HIGH GOD, which hath delivered thine enemies into thy hand. And he (
Abraham) gave him (Melchizedek) tithes of all.  
21. And the king of Sodom said unto Abram, Give me the persons, and take the goods to thyself.  
22. And Abram said to the king of Sodom, I have lift up mine hand unto the LORD, the MOST HIGH GOD, the possessor of heaven and earth,  
23. That I will not take from a thread even to a shoelatchet, and that I will not take any thing that is thine, lest thou shouldest say, I have made Abram rich:
24. Save only that which the young men have eaten, and the portion of the men which went with me, Aner, Eshcol, and Mamre; let them take their portion.

Page 159


THE MOST HIGH GOD is the Hebrew, EL-ELYON. This is the first time it is used in the Bible, and Abraham must have liked the Name, because he immediately used EL-ELYON in Verse 22 to declare who God was to the pagan king of Sodom. Sodomites today need to understand that THE MOST HIGH GOD is holy, and he hates their sin. The Bible is never out of date, so true Christians can take no favors from sodomites, though Abraham's compassion in rescuing them is notable.

Here then is the name of God, EL-ELYON, used for the first time in God's dealings with Abraham. It is also used in the Psalms in a special way, where Elohim is added to EL-ELYON to give great power to the message:

The Bible, Psalms 57:1, Be merciful unto me, O God, be merciful unto me: for my soul trusteth in thee...  
2 I will cry unto GOD MOST HIGH (
ELOHIM--EL-ELYON); unto God that performeth all things for me.

Here is a prayer for the Muslim, who will repent of following Allah, Mohammed, and the Koran and come to The Lord Jesus Christ for salvation. The Lord Jesus Christ, who shows us God, will make you the child of ELOHIM--EL-ELYON, the God of Abraham and Ishmael. You see, Ishmael was raised in the tents of Abraham, circumcised by Abraham, and when he had to leave with his mother Hagar, he went with EL in his name, Ishma`EL, meaning "God hears." And, Ishmael went from Abraham using the name EL for the name of God.

If the Bible were in fellowship with the Koran, why did God not name Abraham's eldest son, Ishma'llah? The Mullahs cannot explain that. God named Ishmael, and every Arab today who names his son Ishmael is exalting the name of El, the God of Abraham.

The first Arab, Ishmael, spoke Hebrew before he spoke Arabic, so it can be no insult to the Arab heritage to use the name of Elohim or El-Elyon to address God. The "calamities" of the terror between Zionists and Palestinians will one day be past. But you will answer to Elohim for the name you used for Him. Think about it.

You can see for yourself that Arabic Bibles use "Allah" as the Name of Jehovah.  You can see that "Allah" in those Bibles needs to be replaced by the reader.  Van Dykes's old classical Arabic translation, which we recommend because it is based on the Textus Receptus, and because it is trusted by Christian Arabs, also uses "Allah".  You can see this situation graphically by going to a Muslim sponsored Web Page where the case is well made, though in hate for the Bible and Jesus Christ.  Then return and finish reading so that you learn what to do to resolve this situation.

Question Two:
Must I stop calling God Allah?

Here is what God will do with the Jews some day when He returns as Messiah and cleanses His people.

The Bible, Hosea 2:16-17, And it shall be at that day, saith the LORD, that thou (Israel) shalt call me Ishi; and shalt call me no more Ba`ali. For I will take away the names of Baalim out of her mouth, and they shall no more be remembered by their name.

Ishi means, "My husband." Israel will someday be the "Bride" of God in the Kingdom.

The Zionist and unbelieving Jewish blasphemers will be destroyed (Zephaniah 3), and the believing Jews will have a new Name for God. Israel will again be married to Elohim, and they will be gentle and sweet with Ishmael, the half brother. The true Church of Jesus Christ is also called a Bride in the Bible. The false church of Rome and blasphemers worldwide religion will be destroyed for forming a false Whore system-- a counterfeit bride.

Now, if God must cleanse Israel of blaspheming His name, and force them to use his holy name, Ishi, do you suppose God wants you to also stop calling him Allah? Answer, YES! It is derived from the same pagan source as "Ba`ali." What choice do you have my friend? If you are Muslim, you must now repent of your blasphemies against God, and turn in faith to Yitha, The Lord Jesus Christ. Read Chapter Twenty-Six for the Injil, Gospel.

The text in Hosea of the Bible convinces me also that Isa is not the right way to say "Jesus" in Arabic. It should be Yitha or Yithi. Mohammed's "Jesus," Isa, was calling for worship in Syria in 700 BC-- long before Jesus was born and named in Bethlehem. Also, the pagan Syrian form, Isa, does not mean "husband" as does Ishi in Hosea.


ISA or ISHA in Hebrew:

'ishah "woman, wife" is used as either the equivalent of the English "woman" or "wife" (Am 7:17), like 'ish "man, husband" it can have the sense of "each one", as it is often felt to be used in Am 4:3. It is also used for "virgin."

ISHA In Hindi:

Isha is a boy's name and means, "one who protects." This gives us a clue that Mohammed very likely got his name for Jesus from the east, NOT from the Jews and the Bible. Mohammed got "Akbar" from Syria, which means "mouse" and was the mouse god of Syria. Mohammed got "Rahman," which is NOT an Arabic word, from the Upanshads who worshipped the Brahman, the root of Rahman.

Arabic form of the Hebrew:

No fool could miss the point here, and no Muslim dare say, after reading this box, that he respects Jesus Christ as Mohammed defined him:

A'isha fem.-- Ayesha (Anglicised)

Popular Arabic feminine name from the feminine form a'isha - "alive and well" - of 'asha - "to live". It is given most often in honour of the third and beloved wife of Muhammad, A'isha bint-Abi-Bakr (c.613-678), who he married, when she was only nine years old. Proud, strong, and easily envious, she vehemently opposed one of Muhammad's successors, 'Ali ibn-Abi-Talib, but after leading the rebels herself she was defeated and spent the rest of her life in pious religious practice. Source

In Arabic, Isha means "nightfall," and is the name of prayers said at that time. This in no way clears the issue at all, for many Arab tribes mix and confuse "s" and "sh," which means that the old forms in Hebrew and the Middle East prevail over the 650 usage of Mohammed.


Either Jesus Christ is a woman, or Mohammed was a blithering idiot. There is NO alternative third choice. If you are a Muslim reader, that puts you in a very difficult place, for you cannot bless a woman named Isha and believe she was, in fact, a man and prophet. Why do you delay in coming to the Jesus Christ of the Bible?

I have chosen Yitha, a name for Jesus used by southern Arabian Christians shortly after the time of the Apostle Paul. But, the name Ishi would also be just as appropriate. In any case, Isa is a foreign mongrel name having nothing to do with Jesus Christ. Indeed, it turns up in the early forms of Hinduism in the name of the Isa Upanishads who got the pagan name Isa from the Euphrates Valley where it predated Jesus Christ by centuries.

To the above facts add this story. The pre-Islamic Arabs had a tradition that a god and goddess named Isaf and Na`ila were in the Kaaba at one time. They tried to have intercourse in the Kaaba, and the gods of heaven turned them to stone. From then on the Arabs offered sacrifices to them. Note their names please:

Isaf clearly is an alternate derivation of Isa of Islam and the Koran, and Na`ila is clearly a LIL / IL derivative from Babylon and of the same heritage as Allah. This is a pretty nasty heritage for Isa, so you can see why I strongly suggest that Isa cannot be used for Jesus in Arabic. Mohammed had no discernment in choosing god names because he had no light from Elohim. (FOOTNOTE 122:  60 / 299 / 486; 2 / 86 / 2027; 114 / 192-3 / 1634; 194 / 46 / 709-- Isaf reference. ) We will discuss Isa more completely later.

Page 161


Elohim, or El-Elyon, is merciful, but he also says to you through the Apostle James in the Bible:

The Bible, James 4:17, Therefore to him that knoweth to do good, and doeth it not, to him it is sin.

Before you opened this book, God's mercy applied to you. He never chastens us as much as we deserve, but now you have no excuse. You must repent of the sin of calling God "Allah," and pray to Him to cleanse your lips of this blasphemy. When you are reading the Bible in Arabic (please use the old Van Dyke Arabic Bible) simply speak the holy Name, Elohim or El-Elyon, whenever you come to the word Allah. God will understand. Another alternative is Al Rub, The Lord.

To my Arab Christian friend I ask, what is your priority, to please God, or to sustain your cultural heritage? The Arabs once knew Elohim in the days of Ishmael their father. Will you stubbornly cling to the name Allah because of what your friends may say about you? Of course some will accuse you of being a traitor. They also persecuted Jesus Christ you know.

The Pharisees even insinuated that he was a bastard as do many of the Mullahs like Ahmed Deedat. Tell me, have they spit on you and pulled out your beard yet? Have they crucified you? What will you give up to be holy and clean? Will you maybe give up the pagan name, Allah?

This is no small matter, and I feel a sense of awe that I should be asked by God to challenge Arab Christians, as well as Muslims, with such a matter. But holiness will not wait, for it is God who said,

The Bible,  I Peter 1:16, Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy.

May you find peace in your soul as you find holiness take over your tongue to the glory of God our Father and The Lord Jesus Christ.

Here is help for the Christian Arab. You share a name for God with your brethren, the Jewish Christians. Here is the text:

The Bible,  Romans 8:15, For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, ABBA, Father.

If you are frustrated with the Name El-Elyon, then cry out ABBA whenever you get to the name, Allah, in your Bible reading. Cry out, ABBA, Father when you pray. Abate is the Habashia word from South Arabia in the homeland of the Ethiopians.

You will soon find that your loving Father in heaven will give you deliverance. It may be that you will have to stand against demons, who love the name Allah. Do so at once, pleading the precious Blood of Jesus Christ over you, and declare out loud your zeal for the true Name of God, El-Elyon, ABBA, or Elohim.

It may also be that, as you cry out, ABBA, you will, for the first time, find that tender personal relationship with our dear

Father which Allah cannot bring. I truly believe that God has withheld some measure of blessing from the Arab Church worldwide because they are calling Him this blasphemous name. In the 1920s there was great power in the churches in the Arab world. Missionaries and Arab Christians were coming to see that Allah was not the God of the Bible, but they stopped short of putting Allah in his proper place by cleansing the Arab churches.

Some will say that words are not important, it is the sincerety of the heart which counts. This is ancient Greek Hellenistc pagan thought which claims that sensation is the priority, not The Word. Jesus has spoken to this evil logic of letting feeling and sincerity prevail over speech:

The Bible,  Matthew 12:36 But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak,
they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment.
37 For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned.


 Page 162

Today Arab church assemblies seem to struggle a lot, and local assemblies and Arab pastors behave like Bedouin clans, clamoring for power. So, don't be surprised if your obedience in casting away this vulgar Allah results in greater power to witness, power in pray, peace in fellowship, and authority in teaching the Word. Bible, The Bible,  Hebrews 11:6 But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him. May God give you the wisdom and zeal to act upon the truth.

Also, I challenge some Arab saint, who has the resources, to see that the Van Dyke Bible is reprinted with Allah changed to a holy Semitic name such as Elohim or El-Elyon. For an Arab Christian, there could be no higher calling in the end of this Church Age, than to exalt God in the tongue of Ishmael. Ishmael means "Elohim hears." So shouldn't Ishmael, in the year 2000, hear "El-Elyon" and read his name in the lofty script of the Arabian desert? Where are you, you who will obey this challenge?

We close this chapter with a call to prayer-- a call to the Muslim reader to turn from Allah, and pray to the God of Abraham for His salvation. You have never known a loving Father of the Word of Gog in Allah. God the Father of the Bible is not a physical Father. Rather; He is a spiritual Father who loves all men, and He provided a way for you to be His child by adoption. Jesus said that you could come to be the child of Elohim, El-Elyon, The Most High God, by faith in the death and resurrection of Jesus. Here is the Spirit of God who calls you to prayer and repentance:

The Bible,  Matthew 11:28-30, Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.

The Bible,  John 10:27-30, (Jesus said) My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me: And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand. My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father's hand. I and my Father are one.

The Bible,  John 6:37-39, (Again Jesus speaks) All that the Father giveth me shall come to me; and him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out. For I came down from heaven, not to do mine own will, but the will of him that sent me. And this is the Father's will which hath sent me, that of all which he hath given me I should lose nothing, but should raise it up again at the last day.

Allah is a cruel and far-away god who exists only in myth. You have no idea where you stand with him. Even you Mullahs and Sheiks, where is your hope? I watched Ahmed Deedat debate with a Christian minister. Ahmed used deceit and trickery, and he was very clever indeed, but he could not do one thing. He could not give comfort and assurance to anyone from Allah. You cannot be certain of anything. Yet you are intensely loved by Elohim, the God of the Bible. He has provided for your salvation, for your future.

I will also be happy to receive a call from any Muslim who wants help to escape from Islam. You too will struggle against demons, or jinn. They are fallen angels who serve Satan, and they want you under the bondage of Allah. But God, who created them, is greater than these demons, especially the demon named Allah. The God of the Bible, El-Elyon, will deliver you from the grip of jinn and Allah.

You will be abandoned by your Muslim friends, and in some countries you will be marked for death. The price is high to be holy and clean, but God will reward you with peace in your soul like you have never had. I have many friends who will fast and pray for you if you will Send E-Mail to me, or write me by mail at my address given at the beginning of this book.  I will not tell anyone your identity if you wish to remain unknown to Mullahs and other Muslims. 

Now, I hear some Muslim, perhaps a Mullah, saying, "Jesus and Elohim are very good for you, but I believe that Mohammed is the latest and best prophet. I will follow his teachings." Part Four of this book is dedicated to you. Read on please.

Note:  Added, October, 1998 

There are millions of Muslims around the world who just wish they could live out their lives in peace.  They have no strong feelings one way or the other for Islam, and they only go to the mosque to keep the Mullahs from troubling them.  The specter of Jihad is grotesque to them, and fanaticism is repugnant.  I would not want to cast these secularized muslims in the same light as the raging prophet Mohammed, Osama Bin Laden, and the Ayatollahs of Iran.  Nor should all Muslims be asked to answer for the raping mobs in Indonesia.

So, what is it about Allah that captures the imagination of so many people, whether they are fanatic rapists in the name of Allah, whether they are wanna-be Muslims in the Black Ghettos of the USA, in US Federal prisons, or, on the other extreme, whether they are secularized and very peace loving? Why does Allah seem to satisfy all Muslims, both peace loving or terroristl?

When Mohammed cleansed the Kaaba of Mecca, he was a man with presuppositions.  Mohammed clearly saw himself as another prophet in the order of Moses and Jesus.  He longed to be exalted by both Jew and Christian.  Had the Jews in Medina continued to exalt him, the Qibla today would no doubt still be Jerusalem, and the Mosque of Omar might well be the seat of Islam rather than Mecca.  Mohammed clearly had a deep regard for Moses, Abraham, and Jesus (though only as a human prophet).

So, why did Mohammed turn to Allah when he was looking for a god to exalt?  Answer:  Jehovah was NOT in Mecca and the Kaaba in any form.  The nearest thing was in the form of paintings on the inside walls of the Kaaba which depicted Mary and the baby Jesus.  Mohammed was a deeply committed monotheist.  This would not do.  And, we must give him credit for standing against polytheism of the Arab pagans around him, for he trashed their whole pantheon, albeit with some temporary diplomacy toward Allat, Al Uzza, and Manat.

But, of all the major religions which have tried to displace Jehovah God and His Savior, Jesus Christ, Islam has done the best job of counterfeiting.  Mohammed rejected even pictorial representations of Allah, which we cannot say for Roman Catholics and the Orthodox Church.  In this, Mohammed is indeed more "Orthodox" than the Orthodox Church who insist on worshipping icons and images.

Mohammed tried to stay humble in spite of his guruistic absolute power over Islam.  Even today, many Mullahs will try to keep an ordinary image in Islamic public gatherings.  And, Mohammed, for the most part, passed on a double hierarchy in which the King or Sultan ruled supreme as long as he stayed orthodox.  That is, the Imams and Mullahs were not to rule the nations.  The Gringo White man named the Ayatholla of Iran was 100% profane and hybrid in is dominance of Iran.  This is because of the Aryan White nature in the Iranian elite Mullahs.  They ARE NOT classically Middle Eastern, and they are NOT typical of the historic flow of Islam.  Nor is Saddam Hussein for that matter.  He is closer to the Jews in temperament, since he is a more direct descendent of Shem.

So, though Allah is clearly the WRONG monotheistic god, nevertheless; Allah is now a rare bird indeed.  He has none of his original matrimonial heritage (with Allat), and he stands alone with no mediators even as the Roman Church has hatched.  Allah appeals to many people in the world for two reason:

1.  It is very nice to deal with just one deity.  
This would appeal even to a Roman Catholic who is tired of all the saints and Mary worship and Pope veneration.  It also appeals to a Hindu who is tired of the impotent fat elephant headed monsters of India-- and 400 million other gods.  It appeals to the African who wants the civilization of the outside world, but he does not want to submit to the holiness of Jesus Christ.

2.  Allah demands very little.  
There are the five pillars, which are mostly physical exercise and alms giving, and that is it.  How nice of one lone god to demand so little.  Pray five times a day also-- but even this is waived by the Mullahs if the Muslim at least shows for prayer on Friday afternoon.  There is no karma to work off as in Hinduism.  There is no total surrender to Jesus Christ who enters the life and changes all things from dark to light.  There are not roseries, novinas, Masses, Purgatory, scapulas, and stations of the cross as in Catholic works salvation. The Muslim can go right on living like a devil, and Allah has no pillar in the system which the wicked Muslim is violating.  This is why criminals in Federal prisons in the USA find Islam so appealing.  They can submit to Allah, do the five pillars, finish their prison term, and go out into the world one day and continue their criminal life.

So, we see that Mohammed made the fatal blunder of looking for Jehovah God, finding Him, rejecting Him, and then erecting his own model of a monotheistic god in place of Jehovah.  This is nothing new.  Joseph Smith of Mormonism did the same thing.  So, did Charles Taz Russell of the Jehovah's Witnesses.  Even Fundamental Baptists come close to this as they exalt men like Jack Hyles.  I have E-Mail which tells me that Jack Hyles is the greatest man on earth, Hyles is the personification of all Jesus taught, etc, etc.  When men cannot stand to submit to the Holy God of the Bible and His Son, Jesus Christ, they go wandering about until they have found, or manufactured, a god which reminds them of Jehovah, but this god demands no holiness.

This was the sad story of one Mohammed in Mecca, circa 625 AD. He went out to a cave out of the city, and Mohammed fabricated his own god and took a patent out on him. His name is Allah.
