The Issues Regarding The Usage of Name "Allah"

وَّيُنْذِرَ الَّذِيْنَ قَالُوا اتَّخَذَ اللّٰهُ وَلَدًا
[18:5] And that it may warn those who say, ‘ Allah has taken unto Himself a son.’
مَا لَهُمْ بِهٖ مِنْ عِلْمٍ وَّلَا لِاَبَآٮِٕهِمْ‌ؕ كَبُرَتْ كَلِمَةً تَخْرُجُ مِنْ اَفْوَاهِهِمْ‌ؕ اِنْ يَّقُوْلُوْنَ اِلَّا كَذِبًا‏
[18:6] No knowledge have they thereof, nor had their fathers. Grievous is the word that comes from their mouths. They speak naught but a lie.

قُلْ هُوَ اللّٰهُ اَحَدٌ
[112:2] Say, ‘He is Allah, the One;

لَمْ يَلِدْ ۙ وَلَمْ يُوْلَدْۙ
[112:4] ‘He begets not, nor is He begotten;

And some people say, if we allow the Christians to use "Allah" as the name for their Lord,
some Muslims will be confused.

I wonder, what kind of Muslim will be confused?
For me-lah, I think that it's better to make our Pendidikan Islam, or anything like that, more Quran-oriented.
Plus, our God, Allah, is just too Big, just too Great to be ours only. If we do not believe that Allah is ALSO the Lord for the Christians, Jewish, Buddhist, whatsoever, can we really call ourselves Muslims.

But, regarding the situation, it's better for the Majlis Raja-Raja to act.

Malays are stupid (don't they understand Quran better?), that's why.

Sorry to be so blunt.
