The Muslims prefer calling the Supreme Creator, Allah, instead of by the English word God. The Arabic word, Allah, is pure and unique, unlike the English word God, which can be played around with.

If you add s to the word God, it becomes Gods, that is the plural of God. Allah is one and singular, there is no plural of Allah. If you add dess to the word God, it becomes Goddess that is a female God. There is nothing like male Allah or female Allah. Allah has no gender. If you add the word father to God it becomes God-father. God-father means someone who is a guardian. There is no word like Allah-Abba or Allah-father. If you add the word mother to God, it becomes God-mother. There is nothing like Allah-Ammi, or Allah-mother in Islam. Allah is a unique word. If you prefix tin before the word God, it becomes tin-God i.e., fake God. Allah is a unique word, which does not conjure up any mental picture nor can it be played around with. Therefore the Muslims prefer using the Arabic word Alla ...more

God is much beyond the capabilities of the human mind to understand.
In Indian religious history, His innumerable devotees have addressed Him by innumerable names.
Some have called Him "Ranchor" (one who ran away from the battle field. Some call Him lover. Some call Him friend, etc etc
Arjun says that I have calling you like a fiend by your first name (Krishna) by your surname (Yadav) without knowing your Divine reality
God understands all thist. Just as a parent easily understand what his infant child is babbling, similarly, God (in His infinite love for us) understand our feelings when we lovingly call Him by some name. And accepts it.
Just as mother remains a mother, no matter in what language, God remains God, no matter in any language. It is our devotion and feelings that matter

Itz utter nonsense to give an attribute of language to god.
Giving any attribution to god is our limitations of expressions and understanding. When we accept him a NIRAKAR and NIRANJAN, giving attribute to god and name him itself fails the meaning of those words.

It is sensible only if it does not conjecture up mental picture in to our minds that God could be a person walking on the streets , eating drinking or sleeping etc
what is important is the quality and attributes of God
call him by any name but that should reflect his majesty and Glory and not something being comparable to his creations like human beings etc
