(RNS) Muslims must unite and reject the ideologies of ultraconservative schools of thought that inspire some to become extremists.
COMMENTARY: Muslims don’t own the term ‘Allah’ in Malaysia or anywhere else
(RNS) God as a source of peace would not want to be associated with a name-sharing squabble. The Arabic term “Allah” predates Islam, and Muslims have no ownership over it.
COMMENTARY: Islam does not have a monopoly on ‘Allah’
(RNS) Muslims have no more of a monopoly on the term “Allah” than Jews have a monopoly on monotheism.
