If Lulu Were To Believe What They Are Saying, Then Lulu Is Very Concerned About Najib's Plan For More Economic Activity With Saudi

In Malaysia, there are those who believe that Allah specifically refers to God in Islam.
For them, “Allah” refers to the one Muslim God, despite the views of those in other religions.
That the issue of the use of the word “Allah” is very sensitive to the Muslims. Many are offended.
Catholics were advised to be careful in executing the decision because the Muslims are sensitive if the word Allah is linked to anything that is improper.
Just because it is ok in the Indonesia and the Arab nations, does not make it right in Malaysia as the Malays here are different.
They fear that Christians are trying to win converts by using the word “Allah.” They say Muslim believers could be confused by the use.

If Lulu were to believe those arguments, then Lulu would strongly urge Najib to rethink this policy direction in getting Malaysia to look towards Saudi to develop economic ties.

In Saudi, the word "Allah" is used in churches.
Its dangerous there. A Malay Muslim Malaysian business seeker upon hearing the word Allah used may venture into a church thinking it is a mosque.
Can't blame him cos in Malaysia, the government is trying to disallow the word "Allah" in churches, encouraging the Muslims to think that the usage is exclusive for a Muslim context.
Najib and his cabinets and his MPs and his religious councils should not allow their brethren anywhere near these countries. Let them stick to UK and the Vatican where they say that even the Queen and the Pope does not refer to God as Allah.

That is-lah, if you really believe the arguments presented.-

Umm, there are no churches in Saudi (officially). Christians there (mostly foreigners) worship in private homes.

sorry lulu but there are no churches in saudi. even private worship in houses are discouraged although there are more than a million christians there - filipino and indian workers).It has something to do with saudi being a muslim holy land.Affluent christians go over to any other arab states Kuwait, Bahrain etc to attend christmas mass and service ( where there's freedom of worship including using the name Allah by non christians).

did you see Lulu, in some states they have even banned non-Muslims from saying Amin. well, we may spell the same to be amen. Now what does that mean? Well, you start a Christian prayer....better move over to another state to end that prayer....Most time we end it with an Amen. A lot of Christian, especially the established Church's prayer books require you to be saying a hundred times over a one hour normal Sunday Service...So now we got to stop saying those services...Wonder what else....There is obviously sinister attempts at restricting especially christian worship.

Does that meant Malaysian Malay Muslim will be easily converted if they go Indonesia to work as the Church there used Allah ? So how, cannot go Indonesia ?
