Foochow and Allah

In Foochow dialect, when we are surprised by some unfortunate happenings, we express shock by saying ‘alah…’ sounds like ‘how come?’ I put down one l in order to differentiate it from the God with ll. But I am not sure if such expression could be related to God when we express that we are shocked.
