    If "allah" means not only God, but gods, as in plural, than yes.

    no that makes no sense... I thought it was the word for god (as in Latin Deus) that is capitalized in English if you believe in one God (typically, I do the caps at least) So they had called their gods allah(s) and and then when they went monotheistic they had one God they called Allah?

    Allah was the word used by pre-Islamic tribes to descirbe the all-encompasing divine force.

    I believe that a council of the wisest men (the players) should advise you on specific matters. I would like to be the military adviser until I get a higher political position,

    Yeah, I think we're done. Remember, I only want to be Minister of Protection until it's possible for me to get actual (in-game) political power.

    Al-Quds wishes that this "advisor's council" also thinks about the plight of the religious.
