Bryan Fischer–“Allah” is an Extremely Powerful Demon God

by Haddock

Anti-Islam and Islamophobic polemic about who or what Muslims worship has taken on many varying forms over the centuries. Some claimed that Muslims worship the Black Stone and the Prophet Muhammad; others have gotten into very silly and involved arguments about Allah being a “Moon-God”; and still others have forwarded the persistent claim that Muslims worship a “demon” called “Allah.”

Take Bryan “deport the Muslims” Fischer, a prominent right-wing Islamophobe who has managed to top even his own bigotry once again. He fervently takes up the age old Islamophobic claims that “Muslims are worshiping a demon,” that “Allah is an extremely powerful demon.” He assures us that he is not trying to be hard on the Muslims, because they have been “deceived” by the “demon-God,” but is simply advocating the “New Testament standpoint” on this matter.

Allah is an extremely powerful demon. He is a demon God. What Muslims are worshiping is actually a demon. They think they are worshiping God, they’re deceived, they’ve been fooled, so I don’t want to be hard on them, the Muslims have been fooled, they’ve been lied to, they’ve been deceived, they think they are worshiping the true God but they are worshiping a demon-god, this is according to the New Testament. You may disagree with me but there is no question that this is what Christianity teaches. So it’s fine if you take a different view, that’s fine, you’re entitled to your view, this is America; we have freedom of speech and freedom of thought. But from a Christian stand point, from a New Testament stand point, there’s no question that Muslims are worshiping a demon. Allah is a demon God. Remember Jesus himself believed in the existence of Satan, he took Satan very seriously, Satan is a very real being according to the New Testament, he’s out there, not some kind of shadowy, vague, powerless figure but he is the dark ‘prince of the power of the air,’ as the New Testament describes him, so that’s who Muslims are worshiping.

So, Fischer claims Christianity teaches that there are two gods, a good, true god, presumably “The Father” and a bad “demon-God” named Allah? Surely this is not what Fischer intended to say, but one can be excused for thinking so considering the language he employs.

I’m not sure Fischer’s diatribe can be considered as “according to the New Testament position” on Islam, since it was written some 600 years before Muhammad recited the first verses of the Qur’an. Also, there is the fact that the Aramaic word (the language spoken by Jesus), Alaha is linguistically linked to the Arabic word, Allah.

**************

Another strange claim about “Allah” put forward by Islam bashers states that “Allah” is the Hebrew word for “curse,” but this is a complete fabrication. Their entire reason for this misinterpretation is that the word for “curse” and the word for “Allah” use the same letters; but ignore the fact that “Allah” has an extra “L”, which means the word for “curse” is actually “Alah”, not “Allah.” Even if the two words are similar, it is important to remember that “Allah” is the Arabic word for God, not Hebrew; let alone the fact that many Middle Eastern Christians and Jews refer to God as “Allah” themselves.

Some Christians unthinkingly say ‘Allah is not God.’ This is the ultimate blasphemy to Muslims, and furthermore, it is difficult to understand. Allah is the primary Arabic word for God. It means ‘The God.’ There are some minor exceptions. For example, the Bible in some Muslim lands uses a word for God other than Allah (Farsi and Urdu are examples). But for more than five hundred years before Muhammad, the vast majority of Jews and Christians in Arabia called God by the name Allah. How, then, can we say that Allah is an invalid name for God? If it is, to whom have these Jews and Christians been praying?” (emphasis added)

And from the Jewish angle, convert to Judaism and writer/video blogger, Omed Yasher (who is no fan of Islam or Muslims) writes:

Often among Christians and Jews I hear opposition against use of the term Allah in reference to the Creator – the God of Abraham, on the basis of several misunderstandings and lack of information. One of these is that the name Allah is in Hebrew the word for curse, which is, first of all, patently not true. We’ll begin by showing you what the name Allah looks like in Hebrew.

There are four letters when it’s represented in Hebrew – the Arabic name Allah in Hebrew letters:

(Allah) alef lamed lamed heh.

The Hebrew word for curse is only three letters:

(uh-luh) alef lamed heh.

Clearly they don’t look the same. Although the Arabic name Allah could be written in three letters in Hebrew by inserting a dot, a “dagesh,” inside the “lamed” – middle letter, the “l”

…and that is not how it’s written; …but even if it were, it still wouldn’t mean anything. It wouldn’t mean that Allah means curse any more than the Hebrew name for God “Aloah” means curse.” (emphasis added.)

Furthermore, the Qur’an itself attests that “Allah” is the same deity of the Jews and Christians; but then again, “that’s what the demon-god would say to deceive his followers! Muahahaha!”

We believe in what has been sent down to us and what was sent down to you. Our God and your God are one and we submit to Him.” (Qur’an, 29:46) (emphasis added)

Say, “We believe in Allah and what has been sent down to us and what was sent down to Abraham, Ishmael and Isaac and Jacob and the tribes, and what Moses and Jesus and all the Prophets were given by their Lord. We do not differentiate between any of them. We are Muslims submitted to Him.” (Qur’an, 3:84) (emphasis added)

Wouldn’t the following be a strange way for a “demon-god” to demonstrate his evil ways?,

Those who were expelled from their homes without any right, merely for saying, “Our Lord is Allah.” If Allah had not driven some people back by means of others, monasteries, churches, synagogues and mosques, where Allah’s name is mentioned much, would have been pulled down and destroyed. Allah will certainly help those who help Him – Allah is All-Strong, Almighty.” (Qur’an, 22:40) (emphasis added)

I don’t know about you, but if I were a demon-god that wanted to destroy the “Judeo-Christian” tradition, the first thing I would do is to command my followers to protect “monasteries, churches, synagogues” from being “pulled down and destroyed”; because that’s what you do when you want to destroy something….You protect it…Makes sense to me.

Perplexing isn’t it? It seems this clever, deceiving “demon-God” doesn’t realize that by protecting the houses of worship associated with the “judeo-Christian” tradition that he’s hell-bound to destroy, he is hindering his own evil plan!

Finally, no amount of facts or deeper discussion about where “Allah” comes from, linguistically and historically, or how Muslims and Arabic speakers have understood the word over millennia is bound to affect haters intent on demonizing Islam and Muslims. The simple reason for this is that Islamophobes are grappling with their own historical inheritance; the idea and concept that Muslims and Islam are the complete epitome of the “other”; a people so different than us that their God could “never be the same as our God.”

    Hey, Get_Taa_Noo, care to actually study Arabic and Hebrew, like Qa3Qaa3 has?

  • CriticalDragon1177

    What a joke. If by the “Islamic Language” you mean Arabic, well you already have a problem. Arabic existed before Islam, so it doesn’t even make sense to refer to it as the “Islamic Language.” Also can you refer us to a genuine expert in Arabic who says that Allah translates into “Satan” in any other Language including Hebrew? I don’t know, a university Professors who teaches Arabic at an accredited University. Please don’t even bother linking to some stupid anti Muslim “Counter Jihad” translator. Loon Watch has already debunked a few of those.

  • Christian-Friend

    You do realize that this guy is a troll, right?

    “you reverse the word (natas) then you would flip it up side down then push the letters togetter. so get the word thats meens THE DEVIL in Hebrew as its writen on paper then translate it as the Islamic language was done you will find it says Allah.”

    This paragraph SCREAMS trolling.

  • 1DrM

    Put down the crack pipe, devil seed. I very much doubt you have any competency in Arabic(not “Islamic language”) and Hebrew. Let a Yemeni Jew explain it to you :

  • get_taa_noo

    Well first of all you people do not no what you are talking about. The Islamic Language was taken from the Hebrew language. How this was done is you take a word how its writen down (lets use Satan) you reverse the word (natas) then you would flip it up side down then push the letters togetter. so get the word thats meens THE DEVIL in Hebrew as its writen on paper then translate it as the Islamic language was done you will find it says Allah. Secondly in the bible it says to denie Jesus to be the son of god speaks blasphemy & will be punished (will go to hell) now in the Qu’ran Muhammad said that Jesus wasn’t the son of god he was just a prophet like him. Well the Islamic faith come after Hebrew & Jewish faith so to all who say that all faiths follow the same god clearly dont no what there talking about because Muhammad wouldn’t say jesus isn’t the son of god if the same god sent them both. they would of been told the same thing hmm I dont think so get your FACT’S Right you are all dumb people & don’t no what your talking about.

  • Hatethehaterz

    Bryan Fischer’s nuttier than a bag of peanuts.

  • AbdulRaqib

    I think Brian that you need to find your source of hate & misunderstanding & cover it with peace. You need Islam in your life i can see! The nxt thing, one is abusing islam because he doesn’t understand it & suddenly you find him bowing down in humility to Allah in prayer. Take your time place please, maybe Allah is calling you! But one thing for sure, for every news there is a reality & you will come to know.

    @Géji:

    First, I don’t view your (or anyone’s) short replies as rude. If you can say what you need to in a short reply, I don’t see why you have to put in extra words.

    Second, yes, there is a story about Moses being unable to speak clearly. In Exodus 4:10, Moses tells God that he is “heavy of mouth and heavy of tongue.” Some have interpreted this as Moses not being a good speaker, others as him having some sort of lisp.

    There is at least one story (generally taken more as fanciful than truth) that Pharaoh was wary of Moses as a baby because once Moses reached for Pharaoh’s crown as if to take it for himself. So, Pharaoh set a pile of gold and a pile of hot coals before the baby to see if Moses was inclined to go after wealth and power. When Moses started reaching for the gold, an angel pushed his hand to grab one of the coals. Moses then recoiled and brought his hand and the coal to his lips and burned them, causing his speech problems. To my knowledge, this is taken as more of a fanciful possibility probably designed to explain the lisp than as accepted truth.

    Also, I agree with you that in Judaism and Islam, God is neither male nor female, and that “He” does not fit into either category.

  • Géji

    Oh, and as for my mention of “Him” as maybe as “She” too, was that because seriously at times it do get on my nerve that some macho-men out there just because we use the term “He” when we talk of God, takes that as privilege granted over women, even though they know full well that God (at least as far as Jews or Muslims goes) that YHWH/Allah is genderless.

  • Géji

    @Just Stopping By, sorry for this late respond, but I couldn’t really complete my thoughts on the subject with that previous reply of mine from last week for shortage of time. Working 12 to 14 hours a day doesn’t give much time for anything else, but I hope you didn’t view my short replies as something rude. What I meant was, I’ve read somewhere from a Jewish source while ago (can even remember where exactly) that Moses (may the peace and blessings of the Almighty showers upon him right next to Him at Janna) had a pronunciation difficulties, due to something that happened during his childhood, and that he couldn’t pronounce properly the name He called Himself – YHWH, when He spoke to Moses. So I was wondering if there’s such episode mentioned in the Five Book.

    @ abu zaaynab

    Arabic: “Allah” ~ the God

    Arabic: “ilah” ~ god or deity

    Hebrew: “Elohim” ~ the God

    Aramaic: “Elaha” ~ God

    Syraic: “Alaha” ~ God

    Actually, it should be:

    “Allah” ~ “God”

    “ilah” ~ “god/deity”

    “al-ilah” ~ “the-god/deity”

    “Allah” isn’t a contraction of “al-ilah”, but is its own unique word, inseparable with itself and a proper noun:

  • Stoned Gremlin

    @Moody Nice copy and paste there.

  • Lawrence of America

    @Just Stopping By @Géji since all the semetic languages are so very similar (i was tripping out when i watched the passion..like german to english)I would assume the the relation of the word Elaha and elahom(hum) are the same word but elhum is plural. its not uncommon for lords, kings, gods nobles, whatever to refer to themselves or be refered to as plural.
    its done in arabic, the Libyan, and other similar north african dialects do it for all things. instead of saying “ana areed hatha owa hathak” ( i want this or that) I would say “nibi hatha owa hathak” or “na’areed hatha owa hathak” (Literally We want this or that).
    I thinks its fairly typical with semetic languages.

  • J.S.

    The idea that the god of the Quran is satan is totally absurd and stupid, since Allah in the Quran curses satan and warns the believers against the tricks of the devil, therefore it makes no sense to say that satan curses himself…however, if this christian loons still argue that satan pretends to be god in the Quran in order to deceive people the same could be said about the god of the Bible, may be the god of the Bible is a demon pretending to be the creator of universe in order to deceive people and get worship from naive humans…may be Paul was inspired by demons and he warned the early christian believers about the tricks of the devils in order to hide the ugly truth..after all…who would believe that a religion which warns against the work of the devil is actually a religion inspired by devils? what I am trying to say is that the same paranoid arguments used by christian fanatics to demonize other religions can be easily turned against them…

  • The Investigator

    TO “Moody”

    Your GOD hates the “workers of iniquity”

    The foolish shall not stand in thy sight: thou hatest all workers of iniquity. (Ps. 5:5).

    The GOD of Islam doesn’t love NOR HATE the sinners, He is NEUTRAL (not loving or hating), the word HATE is completely ABSENT (unlike Ps. 5:5).

    Call on your Lord with humility and in private: for Allah loveth not those who trespass beyond bounds. (Q. 7:55).

    Where does it say HATE?

    Also, the GOD of the Bible is a deceiver (2 Cor. 4:4)

    “2 Corinthians 4:4: A Case for Yahweh as the ‘God of This Age’.” Apologetics Journal 1 (2005). Online: http://rdtwot.files.wordpress.com/2007/10/2cor-44.pdf database.

    (Source: http://www.sebc.edu/contact/faculty-staff/bio-donald-e-hartley/)

    Muhammad told MANY prophecies that came true, qualifying him as TRUE PROPHET according to Jere 28:9-10.

    Why Muhammad CANNOT be a false prophet:

    “A false Prophet!?! A false man cannot build a house!” So what about a religion that is spread across the world (Thomas Carlyle)

  • Moody

    The most important question concerning Islam is of course : Is Mohammed a true prophet of God ?

    If the answer is no, then we must seriously consider the possibility of a completly demonic origine of Islam. The question if ‘Allah’ is a name, or means ‘God’ becomes totally irelavant, at the best you ‘could’ say ‘Allah is the projection of ‘God’ through the powers of darkness, now this is of course the power of deception through which it is almost impossible to consider even the possibility that his could be the case …

    I personally rejoice because I don’t need the assumed prophet to enjoy my restored relationship withYahweh !

    TO BRYAN FISCHER

    “Whenever we read the obscene stories, the voluptuous debaucheries, the cruel and tortuous executions, the unrelenting vindictiveness with which more than half the Bible is filled, it would be more consistent that we call it the word of a DEMON than the word of God. It is a history of wickedness that has served to corrupt and brutalize mankind; and, for my part, I sincerely detest it, as I detest everything that is cruel”. [Thomas Paine, The Age of Reason]

    Concerning the Christian “heretic” Marcion (140 CE) the author Roger Olson states:

    “…For him the Old Testament had no validity for Christians whatever, and he considered the God described in it a tribal, BLOODTHIRSTY, demigod who did not deserve Christian adoration or worship…For Marcion the Old Testament Yahwheh was more DEMONIC than divine.” (The Story of Christian Theology: Twenty Centuries of Tradition & Reform, Roger E. Olson, pp. 132)

    @Fai

    “Ilah” or ee-l-aa-h appears as “Lord” or “Master” not god, in contrast to “Allah” which DOES mean god.

    Just a read or Surat al fatiha will show the difference between Ilah and Allah.

  • Indonesian Christians use Allah for God, so?

    JSB, “then it could be YHWH [though assumed not to be pronounced out loud per tradition]..,”

    YHWH? “assumed not to be pronounced out loud per tradition” ? I don’t know, I think the guy (or girl…) is pretty straightforwarded. But YHWH ? Moses? sure?
