Since its more accurate. --Striver 00:28, 13 February 2006 (UTC)

Who cares if it is more "accurate"? The name in Arabic is Abdullah. In Classical/Qur'anic Arabic the "u" is improtant as it shows ownership. Just like "Ruhullah" (a spirit by Allah) which is used in the Qur'an as a nickname for angel Gabriel. Striver, are you Muslim? Have you read the Qur'an? Can you transliterate from Classical (voewel indicating) Arabic? I'm not Muslim, but I own a Qur'an and I can at least sound out the letters in Arabic. Perhaps we need the opinions of a few Muslims and Arabic "speakers"? -User:ZyXoas 09:59, 17 February 2006 (UTC)

Ok, then lets rename it to Abd'u-llah (name). --Striver 19:28, 16 June 2006 (UTC)
That is also wrong. Please leave the page alone. Read the MOS and learn how to transliterate before you go around changing things. Cuñado Bahaitemplatestar.png - Talk 17:52, 13 August 2006 (UTC)
