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

Q: Assalamalaikum imam,
In Islam what is preferred to say, god or Allah? Is there a reason to say one over the other?
Time: Sunday December 18, 2011 at 8:45 pm

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.

‘Message has not reached them in the clearest form’

Q:  AS Salaamu Alaikum Warahmatullah wabarakatuh,
I have read an article and its states the following,  there are people who have not received the Message of Islam/guidance at all or the Message has not reached them in the clearest form, i.e. it is incomplete or distorted. These people are called Ahlul Fatrah and will be excused and not be punished by Allah SWT, even though there are misguided. I am  little lost on this yaa Sheikh, why wouldn’t they be punished when they are misguided?

Answer: (Response by Br Yassir Butt. (May Allah (SWT) bless him and protect him and his family, Ameen.)

There is no such thing as ahl ul fitrah with a distorted message fitrah is the natural path which the prophet SAW noted when he said

كل مولود يولد على الفطرة

“Every child is born on fitrah than his parents are the one who change his natural religion from natural Islam to Judaism or Christianity”

With that said anyone who has not received the message of Islam they according to some scholars are called ahl ul Araaf and they will be given a test on the day of judgement of obidience and based on their performance on that test their fate will be decided by the all mighty Allah.  Allah deals with everything justly even if our feeble minds cannot contemplate or recognize it.  والله اعلم
