All three surviving Semitic languages - Aramaic, Hebrew and Arabic derive from a common ancestor. In ancient Akkadian (no longer spoken), the word for "god" was "Iluh" and from this old Semitic term the words "Alaha" (Aramaic), "Eloh" (Hebrew), and "Allah" (Arabic) derive.

These words are the exact cognate of the English "god" (with a lower-case "g").

All pagan dieties in Mesopotamia, worshipped by the early Akkadian-speaking Semites, were called by this title. Remember, it's not a name - it's a title, like the English "god" or "angel" or "demon" or "saint" or "president", etc.

Yes, the early Arabs worshipped the moon and many other planets and deities - and they all were called "allah" in the Arabic language because "allah" simply means "god".

The ancient Assyrians and Babylonians worshipped hundreds of deities and they called them all by the title of "illuh".

So when we call the "God" of Abraham "Alaha", we are not calling him by his name. We are simply stating what He is - "God." It's only a simple title.

His proper personal Name is hwhy - and in Aramaic we call him [font=Estrangelo (V1.1)]0yrm[/font] which contains a contraction of the Hebrew name.

In Arabic, unfortunately, there is no relation to this name. They simply call him by the generic term "Allah", which is only a title. Many of them do not realize that the word is only a title and not a proper, personal name.
