Why don't use you the holy name of God, "Allah?" The word "God" is often misused and is understood differently by different people?

The holy name of God is also the only word for God the Arabs have. Arab Christians, for instance, refer to God as "Allah." But we speak English here and thus we need to say the word as it is said in English.
