This is with reference to a letter from Brother Mustafa on the “Malaysian Court Verdict” in the November 2013 issue of Islamic Voice. I differ with him on the grounds that “Allah” can never be a simply equivalent word for “the God” as Brother Mustafa opines, because God can become plural if we add ‘s’ and a feminine if we add ‘ess.’ There are no such attributes associated with “Allah.” Using capital “G” does not really help. Hence “Allah” is certainly an unique word which Muslims should not compromise on.
