Muslims repeat two words allah-akber

The meaning of the word
akber Is the biggest

Not as great as the English translation suggests
This causes confusion in our understanding of this machine
If God is biggest , then who is the smaller God?

It is our right to ask this question
I translate the word as it is in the original Arabic
Big=akber

Is there a smaller God?

Is this another Muslim/Islam bashing attempt?

Every Muslim I've ever heard mention it says that phrase means "God Is Great" in English.
