If a Jew or Christian blesses food with the name Yahweh, or substitutes it with Hashem (the Name) which is common practice, is a Muslim allowed to consume such food? I am under the impression that Islam prohibits the consumption of food upon which a name other than Allah has been invoked (please correct me if I am wrong).

Furthermore, Biblical scholars have come to the spelling 'Yahweh' by referring to Jewish and non-Jewish sources. In Jewish culture, YHWH is substitued with 'LORD' which is why there is no instance of Jesus saying YHWH explicitly. But, by saying adonai or the Aramaic equivalent, it is clear whose name he is invoking. Anyway, are Muslims permitted to refer to God as YHWH? Is Allah or Hayyul-Qayyum[using large font size is not allowed] the supreme name or personal name of God in Islam? Thanking you in advance for your answers.
