Origin(s) of Allah.
The conventional theory is that Allah comes from Al-ilah "the God" and the Arab god Ilah "God" and is related to biblical El/Eloah/Elohim "God" and Phoenician/Ugaritic/Canaanite El/Il. However, Christians dispute that Allah is the same God as Yahweh/Elohim/Adonai in the bible. Allah is singular, Elohim is plural. A popular theory is that Allah was a "moon god" like El is in Ugaritic. However I am not sure whether Allah does (only/wholly) come from Al-ilah/Ilah.
There are a number of extant theories/claims for the origin of Islam including:
- From Judaism/Bible. (Longman-Larouse.)
- Mohammed was an offended Christian who started his own sect/religion.
- A Papal conspiracy. (Chick Publications / Crusader Comics. Compare Babylon mother of all harlots in Revelation/Apoclaypse. The Koran mentions a victory of Romans in Surah 30.)
- From Petra/Edom.
- From Indian empire/emperor. (Inner Traditions?)
- From Egyptian religion.
- From Nestorianism.
- One of Muhammad's sources was a Syriac or Arab monk Sergius the Monk or Baeira/Bahira/Pakhyras, and he was either Nestorian or Nasorean or Gnostic or Jacobite or Arian.
- From religion of Abraham, & Ishmael, & Fitra. (Koran.)
- From Moon god.
I had did a brainstorm to see if I could find where Allah comes from and came up with these candidates:
Biblical: Ala-mahozim ("god of forces/fortifications", Daniel)?* Eloah/El/Elohim/Eliyon "God"?* Mahalalel ("the blessed god")?* Halleluyah? Deir Alla (Balaam)? Ararat? Lilith? 666/616 (Allah, Bismallah, Maometis, 99 names)? Helel "Lucifer" (Isaiah)? Aila/Aelana (Elath/Eloth)? Havilah? Delilah? Zillah? Al Ab (Father)? Baal?
Phoenician/Ugaritic/Canaanite: Aleion?* El/Il?*
Italian/Roman: Pope St Adeodatus/Deusdedit 1 (615-618)?* Adaloald (616-626)? Arian (Unitarian)?* De ira "from the wrath" (Pope Gregory)?* Alleuia/Alleluia (Gergory)?*
Mesopotamian: Alala? Irra/Erra? En-lil/Ellil?* Ilu/Anu/An (god/heaven)?* Allatu (Ereshkigal/Ninkigal)? Iraq? Lahar?
Arabian: Ilah/Al-ilah/Allah/Allahoma?* Al-lat/Al-ilat? Alif/Aleph/Alpha? Bismallah? Abdullah/Abdallah (Mohammed's father)? Hilal (god of new moon)? Halal (Muslim version of kosher)? Ha'il?
Egyptian: Ra (sun god)?*
Norse/Germanic: Allah found in a Viking inscription?
British: Alanus (Nennius)?* Alla/Aelle/Aelli/Aella (Sussex, Deira)? Aslan "lion"?
Indian: Ila? Aila "son of Ila"? Anila? Aryan?
Slavic: Ilya ("Elijah")?
It looks to me like Allah comes from a clever combination of Arab god Ilah, and Roman Alleuia or De Ira or Arian or Adeodatus or Atlas/Atlantis (which may be the beast in Revelation). The Arab god Ilah may come from El/Il/Ilu or Enlil/Ilu.
Enlil is an interesting candidate. Helel "Lucifer" in Isaiah possibly comes from Enlil (Sumerian) / Ellil (Akkadian/Semitic) / Ellel (Hittite/Hurrian). Though some people think El came from Enlil.
I like quite a few things about Islam/Muslims, but I don't think it is wholly true compared to the bible, and I think it seemingly has human or spiritual/angelic origins.
Jesus? Ishi? Aish/Ish? Esau? Aysh? Aiysh? Jesse? Isra(el)?
Iswara? Mahisa? Ishmael? Isaac? Isaiah?
Isis? Sia/Say? Shu/Yshsh?
Mohammed (Ahmed "Paraclete" (595-) 609/611 (-622-625-632)) :
Ham? Moses? Alamahozim? Baphomet/Sophia? Prophet (like Moses)? False Prophet? 666? Mammon? Maimonides? Lo-ammi? Haman? Hamor? Moab? Benammi/Ammon? Milcom?
ISIS (ISIL) :
Stella Maris? Jesuits?
Mary? harlot Babylon?
Badr (Beder) :
Abaddon? Bard? Pandera? Hadar? Peter? Bethel?
Badrig/Patrick? Badarn/Padarn/Patern(us)? Bedivere? Bede?
Mesha? B...? Meshech? Massah? Mithkah? harlot Babylon?
Makeda? Mahra? Macae?
Sheba? Kefa/Cephas? rock/stone (Daniel)? Bethel? Shetiyah? Eve/Chava?
Koran (Quran) :
Koren "horns"? Korah? Qumran? Keturah? Quirinus? Logos?
Dhul Qarnain (Alexander)?
Acoran/Abora (Canary Is)?
Islam (Muslim Mussulman Mohammed rock) :
slavery? submission? Aslan?
Shalom? Isra(el)? Ishmael? Lamb Dragon (Earth Beast)? White Horseman?
Musa? Salaam? Iram/Irem?
