فِي الْبَدْءِ خَلَقَ اللهُ السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالارْضَ
If Yahweh is the personal name of God, and more important than any of the other names of God (mentioned in the Bible), then why is Isra-El (and subsequently the name given to the nation of Israel), not utilizing Yahweh in its name ?
Shouldn’t the proud nation of Israel, the nation of God’s chosen people been given the superior name of Isra-Yahu and not using the so-called lesser name of God, El in its name ? A name of God, that I may add is similar to ALLAH, according to Enclyopedia Britanica
Etymologically, the name Allah is probably a contraction of the Arabic al-Ilāh, “the God.” The name’s origin can be traced back to the earliest Semitic writings in which the word for “god” was il or El, the latter being used in the Hebrew Bible (Old Testament).
Keeping that aside, let us examine what modern scholarship has to say on the issue of Isra-el vs Isra-yahu:

After praising and thanking Allah, Prophet Muhammad SAW said:
“O People, lend me an attentive ear, for I know not whether after this year, I shall ever be amongst you again. Therefore listen to what I am saying to you very carefully and TAKE THESE WORDS TO THOSE WHO COULD NOT BE PRESENT HERE TODAY.

Human beings have always been interested in where they came from and how they developed before birth. We know from the earliest records that primitive peoples realized that the birth of a baby was the sequel to sexual union or intercourse. However, for many centuries the idea about human prenatal development were based on speculation and mysticism. The absence of knowledge about embryological processes and the dominating influence of superstition resulted in a non-scientific approach to human development.
