Islam/What si the ONE TRUE NAME of the ONE TRUE GOD YHWH or Allah?


Muslims are enjoined to say to bani Israel:

"... we believe in that which has been revealed to us and revealed to you. And our God and your God is one ..." 29:46

"Say, "O People of the Scripture, come to a word that is the same between us and you - that we will not worship except Allah and not associate anything with Him ... " 3:64

The Jew's immediate reply:

I worship al-ilaha (the One True God) in the One True Name YHWH (written more than 6800 times in the Torah) and call Him Allah (Allah is a contracted Arabic word a shortened form of writing and pronouncing the Arabic words Al-ilaha meaning the god) ... has Allah told you about His name YHWH?

Muslims need to tackle questions like this head on if they are to call people to worship al-ilaha/the God in the name Allah.

So, simply has Allah told Muslims about His name YHWH ?

I urge you to address the question and answer it directly and not to beat around the bush.
