The term ‘Father’ in the New Testament and the Name Rabb in the Quran

Christian missionaries often claim they have some special relationship with God because the New Testament uses the word ‘Father’ yet as Ali Atiae points out it’s a figurative term and the Muslims have a term which reflects the figurative meaning of ‘the Father’ ie the one who takes care of you in stages. This term is Rabb. This term is used in the Quran for Allah.

  1. Yes, Rabbaytic and Rabbayt are Arabic for raised you during phases of time. My father used to tell me and my brothers when we were naughty (In Arabic but I am transliterating) “Ana ma rabbetikish” which means I didn’t raise you well enough when you were younger lolšŸ˜‰
