Is God Allah ?

What does Allah mean ?

What did Jesus ('alayhi as-salam) call God ?



by

Dr. Ali Ataie











Dr. Ali Ataie examines the etymologies and meanings of some of the names of God found in the Hebrew Bible and the Qur'an. His talk attempts to answer: Who is Allah? Do Muslims and Jews (and Christians) worship the same God? What is the greatest name of God? What is the personality of the biblical and Qur’anic God?

Dr. Ali Ataie is a faculty member at Zaytuna College. He has been involved in interfaith activities for over fifteen years. He has been a guest lecturer and guest instructor at several colleges and universities, including Cal Poly State, UC Davis, UC Berkeley, UCLA, Cal State East Bay, and others.
