What is the question? It would probably be helpful if you punctuated the sentences.

comment Meforshim Nick"names
This one always sticks out in my mind. I think the ר"ן routinely abbreviates רמב"ם this way and that I've noticed it in several editions.

It is also evident in the context of the original havtacha in B'reshis 15:13. Link: tora.us.fm/tnk1/jdl/MefarsheyTanach001-15.htm

He seems to do so in Sh'mos 6:20, in calculating the genealogical timeline of the Amram-Moshe-Aharon family. Link: tora.us.fm/tnk1/jdl/MefarsheyTanach002-06.htm

As Anonymous Chasid answered below, your question was "Are you allowed..." and since ליכא איסור כלל, the answer is "YES".

comment The Absolute Unity of G-d
א-להים (or אלהים for the profane meaning) is clearly grammatically plural, based on its agreement with plural adjectives and its declension for possessives. In all cases it follows the grammatical pattern of a plural. The Ibn Ezra I cited (as well as Rash"i, Ramba"n, Or Hachayim, et al.) understand it this way. The putative singular of the word would be א-לוה, which is attested plenty of times in תנ"ך. It is related to (but not equivalent to) א-ל.

comment Alarm clock handling on Shabbos
@SimchasTorah I have edited my answer to clarify that there is no prohibition of touching things due to shabas . There may be objects touching of which is prohibited (like the mizbe'ach for example) but not because of the day of the week.
