The word Allah is not pagan and it does not originate from the Quran. The word Allah originates from the Hebrew word El which is one of the "names of God" used in Judaism. Assyrians use the word Ellaha/Alloha for God. The Muslims copied a lot from Christians when their prophet invented their religion. So in my opinion, in many ways, the Muslims are copying the Arab Christians. Turks are not Arabs but Turkish culture is influenced by Arab, Persian, and Byzantine cultures. There are some purely Turkish words for the word God but they are pagan (which is not exactly a bad thing), I think the best word to use would be Allah.Theophilos78 said:Thanks for the information. I use the name Elohim because it is used in the Bible. It may be the name of an ancient Canaanite deity, but its use in reference to the true God of Israel is authorized in the word of God. We cannot say anything of the sort about Hubal-lah.Andrew Crook said:Merely because something was applied to a pagan deity, does not mean that it cannot be applied to the Trinitarian God. Many of the Hebrew names for God were also used by the Canaanite pagans which preceded Judaism. El was considered to be the father of 70 children and Yahweh is considered to be part of their pantheon. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Canaanite_religion
Although I understand your preference to not use Arabic, as it comes from a variety of reasons. I was just adding this bit of information to the conversation...
Roman Catholics are not allowed to use the name Jupiter to define the Trinitatian God. The same rule must go for Arabs and Allah.
Since you want to purge your culture completely of Arabic influence, I dare you to remove all of the meze dishes from Turkish cuisine, to remove the Fez and kaftan from Turkish clothing, to cease all Turkish music which is based on the Arabic Makkam system, and to stop using about 35% of the Turkish language. Now what is left? Arabic culture has influenced Turkish culture greatly and it has worked for the better in terms of culture.
