The use of the word “Allah” by Christians to refer to their god does not cause Muslims to leave their faith, Muslim missionary Shah Kirit Kakulal Govindji has said amid fears of alleged proselytisation efforts by Christians.
Instead, Christians were more likelier to be converted to Islam after reading the Al-kitab, the Malay language Bible that contains the word “Allah”, claimed the chief preacher of the non-profit Islamic Information and Services Foundation (IIS).
Asked to comment on the widespread use of the word “Allah” by non-Christians in Muslim-majority Indonesia, Shah Kirit said that Malaysia did not necessarily have to follow Indonesia’s lead, noting that both countries have different customs
After the recent shock announcement by a court in Malaysia that Christians would be banned from using the word Allah to describe their supreme being, here we have a prominent Indonesian Muslim who believes that in fact it could help bring more Christians into the fold of Islam.
