Why do Muslims call their Abrahamic God Allah, not Jehovah or God of Abraham?

the name of God


The name of God is referred to as tetragrammaton, according to the four characters.Since the Hebrew language is a consonant language, and the name of God was no longer pronounced over time for superstitious reasons, the correct pronunciation was lost. Centuries ago, the version “J.ehova” was created by adding the vowels from the Hebrew word “Lord”. Because this version has been known for so long, Je.hova’s witnesses have retained this version.

To know the name of God means more than just knowing what it is (2Ch 6:33).It means knowing God as a person —His intentions, his actions, and his attributes, as revealed in His Word. (Cf. 1Kö 8:41-43; 9:3, 7; Ne 9:10.) An example of this is Moses, a man whom Je.hova ‘knew by name’, that is, with whom he was familiar (Gen 33:12). Moses was privileged to see a manifestation of the glory of Jeh.ova and also to “hear the proclamation of the name Je.hovas” (Gen 34:5). This proclamation was not only a repetition of the name “Jeh.ova”, but a public explanation of God’s attributes and actions. “J.ehova, Je.hova, a God, merciful and gracious, slow to anger and overflowing with loving goodness and truth, who preserves thousands of loving goodness, forgives for transgression and transgression and sin, but in no way will he grant impunity, since he will grant impunity for the offence of Fathers bring punishment over sons and over grandchildren, over the third generation, and over the fourth generation” (Gen 34:6, 7). The song of Moses, which contains the words “for I will proclaim the name of Jeh.ova,” also tells how God did with Israel and described his personality (Genesis 32:3-44).

When Jesus Christ was on the earth, he made his disciples ‘reveal the name of his Father’ (Jn 17:6, 26).Although the disciples already knew this name and were familiar with God’s actions, which are reported in the Hebrew scriptures, they got to know Je.hova in a far better and greater way through the one who “is with the Father at the bus’s place” (Jn 1:18). Christ Jesus gave a perfect image of his Father by doing the works of his Father, and what he spoke was not speaking of himself, but were the words of His Father (Jn 10:37, 38; 12:50; 14:10, 11, 24). Therefore Jesus could say, “He who saw me also saw the Father” (Jn 14:9).

This clearly shows that only God’s obedient servants really know his name.(Cf. 1Jo 4:8; 5:2, 3.) Therefore, the assurance given by Je.hova in Psalm 91:14 applies to such persons: “I will protect him because he has come to know my name.” The name itself is not a magic formula, but the one called by that name is able to protect his devoted people. Thus the name stands for God Himself. That is why the sayings say: “The name Jeh.ovas is a strong tower. The righteous run in and be protected” (Spr 18:10). This is how people who throw their burden on Jeh.ova act (Ps 55:22). If one loves this name (Ps 5:11), praises it (Ps 7:17), calls him (Gen 12:8), thanks him (1Ch 16:35), swears at him (5Gen 6:13), his remember (Ps 119:55), fear him (Ps 61:5), seek him (Ps 83:16), put his trust in him (Ps 33:21), lift him up (Ps 34:3) and hope for him (Ps 34:3) and hope for him t (Ps 52:9), this is done with respect to Je.hova itself. To insult the name of God is to blaspheme God (Gen 24:11, 15, 16).

Je.hova emulates his name by not condoning any rivalry or infidelity in terms of worship (Gen 34:14; Ethe s. 5:13).The Israelites were commanded not to even mention the names of other gods (Gen 23:13). But since the names of false gods appear in the Bible, this passage apparently refers to the reverent mention of the names of false gods.

By failing to keep God’s righteous commandments, Israel, as God’s namesake, desecrated or defiled the name of God (Ethes 43:8; At 2:7).That God punished the Israelites for their infidelity gave the other peoples the opportunity to speak disrespectfully of His name. (Cf. Ps 74:10, 18; Isa 52:5.) Since these peoples did not realize that Je.hova was the author of the punishment, they attributed the misfortune that came upon Israel to J.ehova, who allegedly could not protect his people. To free his name from this reproach, Je.hova acted for his name’s sake, and returned a remnant of the Israelites to their land (Ethes 36:22-24).

In the Jerusalem Bible with the imprimatur, the taking of God is reproduced with “Yahweh” and not replaced by “Lord”.The rendition of “Lord” leads to ambiguity as to which Gentleman is meant.
