A: وعليكم السلام ورحمة الله وبركاته

Best to say Allah (SWT) whenever possible over the words God/Goddess. God is male gender word while goddess is of female. Allah (SWT) by contrast has no gender attribution. Thus, recommended is the word Allah (SWT) over the words God/goddess.

Allah Certainly Knows Best.

One response to “‘what is preferred to say, god or Allah?’

  1. Also since different religions interpret God differently (believe God as being 3 in 1) also be a reason that it is better to use Allah in order to emphasize the oneness of God.
