MEDIA STATEMENT BM BIBLES AND “ALLAH”
Christians in Malaysia have had a Bible in the Malay language and indeed celebrated its 400th anniversary last year.
Malaysian Christians have been using the word "Allah" in our Bahasa Malaysia Bibles and in our faith to signify the Almighty God and we will continue to do so.
In particular, it is used by all Bahasa Malaysia-speaking church congregations especially the Orang Asli Christians, the Baba Christians and Sabahan and Sarawakian Christians including those who are residing in the various states of West Malaysia.
In accordance with Article 11 of the Federal Constitution of Malaysia, CFM affirms every person’s right to profess and practice his religion and in this connection, the churches' freedom to use the Holy Bible in Bahasa Malaysia, the Alkitab, in all our church services, meetings and in our homes.
