Is Allah God of Muslims only?

According to the Quran, the most beautiful names belong to God Almighty. God creates all the languages and we can derive His beautiful names from any of these languages. There is no restriction in the Quran whatsoever in this matter.  However, God only condemns the distortion of His name by associating idols besides Him. These are the important teachings of the Quran.

God Almighty created all languages, not just Arabic:

[30:22] Among His proofs are the creation of the heavens and the earth, and the variation in your languages and your colors.  In these, there are signs for the knowledgeable.

We can derive His Most beautiful names from any language, Arabic or non-Arabic, as we understand from the verse:

[7:180] To God belongs the most beautiful names; call upon Him therewith, and disregard those who distort His name.  They will be requited for their sins. 

Some of God’s beautiful English names can be derived from this English translation of the Quran:

[59:23] He is the One God; there is no other god besides Him.  The King, the Most Sacred, the Peace, the Most Faithful, the Supreme, the Almighty, the Most Powerful, the Most Dignified.  God be glorified; far above having partners.

[59:24]  He is the One God; the Creator, the Initiator, the Designer.  To Him belong the most beautiful names.  Glorifying Him is everything in the heavens and the earth.  He is the Almighty, Most Wise.

The “Islamic” scholars invent all sorts of ridiculous issues (hadith, tafsir, fatwas, etc.) and successfully divert millions of Muslims from the very important Quranic issues to unimportant unQuranic issues!!!  One of such issue is their ridiculous invention of not saying the name of “God” for the Supreme Being in the English translation. According to them, “Allah” is genderless but “God” has gender!!!  

The most important Quranic issue is not to distort God’s beautiful name by associating idol/idols beside God. Sadly, the Islamic scholars completely overlook this important point!!!

For example, the Quranic testimony for Declaration of Faith (in Arabic Shahadah) is simply “La ilaha illa Allah” (There is no god beside God).  This testimony is taught by God Almighty in the Quran.  All prophets and messengers, including Prophet Muhammad preached and followed this testimony (7:172-173; 3:18; 47:19; 20:14; 10:90; 37:35-36). 

[37:35] When they are told, “Lã Elãha Ella Allãh” [There is no other god beside GOD], they turned arrogant.

[37:36] They said, “Shall we leave our gods for the sake of a crazy poet?”

Sadly, millions of Muslims reverted to idolatry after the death of the prophet, added Muhammad’s name in the Quranic Testimony and practice this corrupt shahadah on a daily basis!  (39:45; 3:18; 37:35).
