Can A Muslim Say God Instead Of Allaah?
Question: Is it permissible that we say God when speaking to A non Muslim instead of saying Allaah?
Response: (1)Shaykhana Ash-Shaykh 'Eid Al-Kayaal حفظه الله said: the word اله(God) is in a form that is نكرة (undefined). Allaah said it is a must that we use terms that are lofty, or Names from His Names that are Husna(Good). As far as names that are(used for Allaah) in an undefined mode (TN: not المعرفة - defined) ,this without doubt isn't permissible.
