Muslims Worship the Moon and a Moon-God
There are some Christian groups that believe Allah is an idol for the moon god. Others mistake the Arabic word Allah as meaning a “moon god” because Islam uses the symbol of the crescent moon. This assumption is a very offensive to Muslims. Allah is the Arabic word for God and is very similar to the Hebrew word El and the Aramaic word Elah.
The most fundamental belief in Islam is worshiping the one true God. Arabic-speaking Christians and Jews also use the Arabic word Allah for God, as do all Arabic translations of the Bible. There is no other word in Arabic for God. Muslims do not worship the moon. The use of the crescent moon comes from the Muslim practice of following a lunar calendar.
