Actually Illah is the word for God that you mean. Thus the phrase “there is no Illah but Allah”.

Since none of these languages have letters to represent all the vowels, you have only the oral tradition to lean on ~ now, which oral tradition do you want?

Even non-Arabic speakers can tell the difference between what is spoken in Jerusalem and the Mecca tradition.

Makes it darned hard to learn Arabic. You'd think that by now they'd have some common standard (beyond so-called "Classical Arabic") but noooooo, they've gotta' be different ~ EVERYWHERE!
