Friday sermon once again stresses that ‘Allah’ is only for Muslims
The Federal Islamic Affairs Department (Jakim) has once again declared that the term “Allah” is exclusive to Muslims, according to the text in the Friday sermon, published on the department's website.
In the sermon, Jakim said that the ban on the use of “Allah” by non-Muslims is based on a National Fatwa Council ruling that the word was specific to Islam and Muslims, and cannot be used or equated to terms in other religions.
The sermon also called on Muslims to prevent the term from being used by non-Muslims. – February 7, 2014.
