Nik Aziz's Statement On Allah Causing Confusion : Dr Abdullah

PUTRAJAYA, March 4 (Bernama) -- The statement by Kelantan Menteri Besar Datuk Nik Abdul Aziz Nik Mat that non-Muslims can use the word Allah is very confusing for Muslims, said the religious advisor to the prime minister, Datuk Dr Abdullah Md Zin.

He said this could cause disunity among Muslims as it touched on the sanctity of Islam.

"Yes, the word was used during pre-Islamic times, but wrongly in that Allah was an offspring and had off springs, that angels were his daughters and had contemporaries in the form of idols and such.

"That was why Prophet Muhammad was sent as the Messenger by Allah. To bring the people back on the true path," he told a press conference to respond to the statement made by Nik Aziz.

On Monday, Nik Aziz was reported to have said it was not wrong to use the word Allah to refer to God on the ground that the Quran itself stated that non-Muslim had been using it since the time of Prophet Muhammad himself.

Dr Abdullah added that the word Allah could not be used by non-Muslims and its use should follow as prescribed by the teachings of the Quran.
