Are the concepts of Abba and Allah compatible or mutually exclusive?
Christian Arabs and Christian Jews used the name "Allah", as their description of the one God, this was long before Islamic use of the name "Allah". It represents all three religions, Christian, Jewish, and Islam, and even though it it is used primarily by Muslims of the Islamic Faith today, and "Abba" is used by the Christian faith, as the word for "Father" in the New Testament and historically speaking, the names are compatible.
I may do a hub on this. When I was a kid, I read a book . . . Hi Jolly! It was about a young Arab who stole a racing camel from a prince and had to head out of town, fast. He made it to the coast and signed up with some American soldiers who were taking a load of camels to the Arizona desert. They needed trainers, and he was the best. He had been to Mecca (his faith was a big part of the story) so his name was Hadj Ali. When he got to customs in the US, the agent wrote his name as Hi Jolly on the roster.
He had some "wild west" adventures. He was a true believer. His faith and knowledge of the Koran saw him through every adversity and life changing event. I don't know who wrote the book, but they did a good job of presenting the basic tenants of Islam, and how an enlightened believer lives out his days.
After that, I had a Muslim friend from Lebanon. His Dad was military. Back then, we had a moment of silent prayer or meditation to start the school day. It was not directed. My friend would always turn and bow to Mecca. When I asked, he explained. We thought it was cool that he was not shy. We hung around a lot. We didn't talk about God much, but the assumption was . . . we were praying to the same one.
Abba, in Hebrew, literally, means "father" or "daddy." Allah is a name for the Creator God, also known as God the Father. This is the One God of the three faiths descended from Abraham, Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. This one God is so vast that he is worshiped in many ways, and known by many names. Even in Islam alone, God has a hundred names. In Judaism, God's name is a secret, and never written down. When God was asked who he was, he answered, "I Am That I Am." But as long as we are speaking of the Creator of the Universe, the names don't matter. We all love one God, let's love one another.
With these two names the meaning is similar. Like Father or Powerful Leader. The strangest thing I noticed is how you can say both backwards and they still are phonetically the same word. abba. abba. halla. allah. Cool.
Here's something interesting Allah backwards means satan's counterpart.
The serpent "Sherkano" is the Beng himself, and has a female counterpart that coincides with Lilith* of Hebrew tradition (Isaiah 34:14), who was also in Eden. Not only this, but
Mutually exclusive. Abba, another name for the God of the Bible, the Alpha and the Omega, the Great "I Am" is not the same as Allah, the god of Islam.

Are Yahweh and Allah the same god?Christianity, Islam and Judaism are all 'Abrahamic Religions' stemming from the same source material. Though they all went off in different directions, it's not unreasonable to assume they are still referring to that original deity. This one god goes by many names...
