While "Allah" is Arabic for "God", there are differences between Allah described in the Koran and the God revealed in the Bible and to distinguish between the two I will refer to them as Allah and God respectively.
God has a different plan for salvation. Allah says that Salvation is through compleatly submitting to him but God says that salvation is obtained through faith in His Son Jesus Christ and in His death for our sins and his resurrection. It is by grace, not works.
God has a only begotten Son, Allah unable to have any.
Allah doesn't not exist as a Trinity but in one person. God in contrast though one, does exist in three persons - God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.
Each God is different in who they love. Allah doesn't love sinners and he loves only the those that obey him like slaves. God loves the whole world-as he has created all of them.
God had his prophets perform miracles as proof they were speaking for him. Muhammed unable to do miracles to prove he spoke for Allah.
Allah will allow a person into heaven if their sins aren't too big. God says no sinners will enter his kingdom which is why he had His Son die for us so that His blood would wash our sins clean and we would be reborn as a new person.
There are many more differences of a deeper theological nature, but too numerous to detail here.
If "God loves the whole world-as he has created all of them" then gays shouldn't care what you, I or anybody else says about them. The same goes for Osama bin Laden. That cannot be right. By the way in Islam Allah is not a person, it's not a he or a she or an it. It has no beginning and no end. In a way Allah is like space/universe. That's the closest I can describe.

Allah (English pronunciation:/&#712;æl &#601;/ or /&#712;&#593;&#720 ;l&#601;/; Arabic: &#1575;&#1604;&#16 04;&#1607;&#8206; All&#257;h, IPA: [&#660;&#593;l &#712;l&#593;&#720 ;] ( listen),[&#660;al&#740 ;&#712;l&#740;&#59 3;&#720;]) is the Arabic word for God (literally "the God", as the initial "Al-" is the definite article).[1][2][3] It is used mainly by Muslims,[4]Arab Christians, and often, albeit not exclusively, by Bahá'ís, Arabic-speakers, Indonesian, Malaysian and Maltese Christians, and Mizrahi Jews.[5][6][7]

Etymology

The Arabic components that build-up the word "Allah":
1. alif
2. hamzat wa&#7779;l (&#1607;&#1605;&#1 586;&#1577; &#1608;&#1589;&#16 04;)
3. l&#257;m
4. l&#257;m
5. shadda (&#1588;&#1583;&#1 577;)
6. dagger alif (&#1571;&#1604;&#1 601; &#1582;&#1606;&#15 80;&#1585;&#1610;& #1577;)
7. h&#257;&#702;
The term All&#257;h is derived from a contraction of the Arabic definite article al- "the" and &#702;il&#257;h "deity, god" to al-l&#257;h meaning "the [sole] deity, God" (&#8001; &#952;&#949;&#8056 ;&#962; &#956;&#972;&#957; &#959;&#962;, ho theos monos).[8]Cognates of the name "All&#257;h" exist in other Semitic languages, including Hebrew and Aramaic.[9]Biblical Hebrew mostly uses the plural form (but functional singular) Elohim. The corresponding Aramaic form is &#700;&#276;l&#257 ;h&#257; &#1808;&#1824;&#18 15;&#1808; in Biblical Aramaic and &#700;Alâhâ &#1808;&#1842;&#18 24;&#1845;&#1815;& #1845;&#1808; in Syriac as used by the Assyrian Church, both meaning simply "God".[10] In the Sikh scriptures, Guru Granth Sahib, the term Allah (Punjabi: &#2565;&#2610;&#26 17;&#2625;) is used 37 times.[11]

The name was previously used by pagan Meccans as a reference to a creator deity, possibly the supreme deity in pre-Islamic Arabia.[12][13] The concepts associated with the term Allah (as a deity) differ among religious traditions. In pre-Islamic Arabia amongst pagan Arabs, Allah was not considered the sole divinity, having associates and companions, sons and daughters–a concept that was deleted under the process of Islamization. In Islam, the name Allah is the supreme and all-comprehensive divine name, and all other divine names are believed to refer back to Allah.[14]Allah is unique, the only Deity, creator of the universe and omnipotent.[5][6] Arab Christians today use terms such as All&#257;h al-&#702;Ab (&#1575;&#1604;&#1 604;&#1607; &#1575;&#1604;&#15 71;&#1576;, "God the Father") to distinguish their usage from Muslim usage.[15] There are both similarities and differences between the concept of God as portrayed in the Qur'an and the Hebrew Bible.[16] It has also been applied to certain living human beings as personifications of the term and concept.[17][18]

Unicode has a codepoint reserved for All&#257;h, &#65010; = U+FDF2.[19] Many Arabic type fonts feature special ligatures for Allah.[20]

Usage in Arabic

Pre-Islamic Arabia

In pre-Islamic Arabia, Allah was used by Meccans as a reference to the creator-god, possibly the supreme deity.[21] Allah was not considered the sole divinity; however, Allah was considered the creator of the world and the giver of rain. The notion of the term may have been vague in the Meccan religion.[8] Allah was associated with companions, whom pre-Islamic Arabs considered as subordinate deities. Meccans held that a kind of kinship existed between Allah and the jinn.[22] Allah was thought to have had sons[23] and that the local deities of al-&#703;Uzz&#257;, Man&#257;t and al-L&#257;t were His daughters.[24] The Meccans possibly associated angels with Allah.[25][26] Allah was invoked in times of distress.[26][27]Muhammad's father's name was &#703;Abd-All&#257;h meaning "the slave of All&#257;h".[26]

So it is clear that "Allah" is not belong to moslem only.

Through the years knowledge is thrust upon us
through the media,television,radio,newspap er. etc.

Through learning the muslim religion,I came across
sharia law. Basically it states that "your"women will be subserviant to every need.It states that
she must put up with all your bullship and it is totally acceptable to smack her around for a while.

What the fcvk is wrong with you people that put
down muslimism.Sharia law kick arse!
Unfortunatly if I showed the ole lady what sharia law is and we are going to practice it,my nutz would be shoved down my throat.

Now as far as the original posters statement
"allah belongs to muslims" is concerned. I will
concur 100% as what other religion would allow

'ALLAH' is Arabic for 'GOD'.
'GOD' is not a name. It is a descriptive word applied to any "diety" that was ever worshipped.

If 'Allah' belongs only to Islam then every diety that was ever worshipped belongs to Islam.

The word Allah simply means God. It predates Islam. In Indonesia and also in Arab countries, there hasn't been any dispute over the word Allah, both Muslim and Christian use the word Allah to refer God. Hence, it doesn't make any sense if they forbid Christian using the word Allah.

Ha ha! You Muslims don't know the mindset of Germans.Just ask the Jews about the plight of six million Jews during the Holocaust. Who knows-the same plight if you people wag your tails to Germans.As on date, Muslim population in Germany is a mere 5.2% of the total population. Approximately 3.0 to 3.5 million Muslims live in Germany, and 80% of them do not have German citizenship; 608,000 are German citizens. German converts to Islam are very rare and mainly women after marrying Muslim immigrants.
70% of the Muslim population is of Turkish origin. Turkish immigration to Germany began in the 1960s in response to a German labor shortage. While these laborers were expected to leave Germany after their work was completed, half of them ended up staying in the country. At first the immigration was predominantly men, but they were eventually followed by their wives and families.Most of the muslims,who are not citizens have to leave as soon as their period is over.
Very unfortunately, these creeps have increased to 4.5 million and rising!

Our welfare is too good. There are "proud Turks", but never too proud not to take care of the welfare system.

Well, it is our own fault.

Wrong: The name actually was used by jews and christians before islam and some of arab were believer in ALLAH too.

Christianity was a faith sent for only jews ( not people world wide)

If you were only in believer in ALLAH without following a religion of judaism or christianity, you were on right way

There you go-rewriting my Bible again. Then you Muslims can't get it through your thick heads why we want to burn your Quran.

Point-Jesus converted Saul of Tarsus, who became the Apostle Paul. Paul made it quite clear that he was converted to bring the word of Jesus Christ to the "Gentile". There were "Gentile" Christians in Rome 600 years before your 'prophet' pissed in the dirt of Mecca where the Kaaba now sits.
