    Forget it lol.

    I was asking if al rab is used for Jesus, God or Holy Ghost (Ruh-ul-Qudus) or only for God the Father alone? This is of utmost importance for me if and when I communicate with an Arabic speaking Christian.

    I assume it is. Thank you.

    For God you can use the term Allah,so even if you're a Muslim communicating with an Arab Christian,it shouldn't be a problem at all. All Arab Christians understand what Allah is.
    God the father is al ab. When you're talking about the trinity in particular yes you should use al rab or and AllAh for God in general.

    Does that make sense?

    I still maintain that is uncommon but carry on.
    You are a prime example of a mass media byproduct. There are millions of Arab christians.

    I don't claim to be a pro as we mostly spoke English at home because my father was Italian but alhamdullilah it's improved a lot over the years

    You're a sunni? I thought the houthi were from the south? Is it true they follow some weirded brand of Islam where incest is allowed?

    Yeh, the South is the only place with 100% sunni population in the world. The houthis are actually from the very north of yemen. I havent heard that one but tbh i wouldnt be surprised if it was true, they are scum.
    Ah okay so houthis are shia? But Sunni and shi'ism is mostly the same apart from believing in Ali being the successor instead of abu Bakar and Omar and Othman?

    Well they are zaydis (half the north yemen population is not just the houthis) which is a branch of shia islam but closer in terms of actual religion to sunni islam. And look i'll save you the headache, dont bother with it (sunni/shia islam) as it will just confuse you.
