I’ve recently over heard conversation and read a post that indicated that non-Arabs think Allah is just a muslim word for Islam alone. I was curious to know how many non-Arab Roman Catholics do not know that Catholic Arabs speak Arabic, AND therefore God means Allah. Jesus is Yesua, Mary is Miriam, Joseph is Yousef.
This is how we speak. In mass we would do the sign of the cross (below) and say God is one (Allahi wahid).
Bismil Abi, wa Libni, wa Ruhi Qudus.
Allah i wahid
In the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit
God is One
Christian arabs (Catholic arabs) truly get the short end of the stick in the Middle East. These words are not just “muslim” words, they are Arabic words. Arabs can be any religion. I am hoping this is not news to many other brothers and sisters in the Faith. Thanks!
