Just a few examples for those who are still in doubt . . .

The images below, with the exception of the first image, were taken directly from The
Holy Bible in Arabic. Referred to in Arabic as al-Kitb al-Muqadis(i.e. ,The Holy
Book), this is the scripture which is used by Arabic-speaking Christians (of which
there are still about 15 to 20 million in the Middle East). So that those unfamiliar with
Arabic script have something to compare these images with, the first image below is a
verse from the Qur'n - which is the Muslim scripture. In the images, the Arabic
word Allah is underlined in red so that it can be easily identified. Upon comparing the
images, one should be able to clearly see that the word Allah appears in both the
Qur'nic and Arabic Bible images. Indeed, the word Allah appears throughout Arabic
translations of the Bible, since it is simply the Arabic name for Almighty
God. Insha'llah, the examples below will help quell the doubts of those who have
been duped into believing that Muslims worship a different god - either by the hostile
media or by Christian missionary propaganda. We hope that this serves as enough
documentation for those who still have doubts about this. We could think of no other
way to prove this point, except to encourage everyone to do further critical and openminded research on their own. Please, don't forget to compare the images . . .
