Who Is Allah?

There are 253917 comments on the The Brussels Journal story from Aug 24, 2007, titled Who Is Allah?. In it, The Brussels Journal reports that:

“Allah is a very beautiful word for God. Shouldn't we all say that from now on we will name God Allah? [...] What does God care what we call him?”

Ishmael will always remain like a fish bone stuck between the dentures of your Church.
Actually, it does not matter much to me, if you deny Ishmael being in the Covenant with Issac. He was the 2nd person of the Greatest Covenant of Losing Foreskin. Issac did not even exist when that happened.
Now, what was the Covenant with Issac?
Was it as follows?
"My covenant with you is that I will give you a wild hairy one and another hairless." Was Jacob bald?
How does Jesus fit in this patch here?
Read Galatians 4

Gal 4:28 Now you, brothers, like Isaac, are children of promise. 29At that time the son born in the ordinary way persecuted the son born by the power of the Spirit. It is the same now. 30But what does the Scripture say?“Get rid of the slave woman and her son, for the slave woman’s son will never share in the inheritance with the free woman’s son.”c 31Therefore, brothers, we are not children of the slave woman, but of the free woman.

Jesus quoted God as saying: "I am the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob'? He is not the God of the dead but of the living." Mat 22:32 Ha, no ishmael!
Isaac is part of the tapistry of Salvation History. It was with Isaac that God made His first convenant with man. Jesus fulfilled the Law and the Prophets of this first convenant and made a new convenant with man. Salvation History can be found in the uncorrupt Holy Bible and you can go to the Cathechism of the Catholic Church for a detailed explanation of Salvation History.
Jesus was NOT talking to gentile christians!!
He was supposed to be talking to a few sects of Jews.
As he was supposed to have come from the line of Isaac, Jacob, Judah and David, he was referring to "his" God!
Jesus is just a man. he is NOT God.
Paul,, you have got a confused message about Jesus the Jew, from a bunch of nutcase gentiles who stole the Jewish books to make up their own god and you blindly follow that man made "church"!
Isaac knows nothing about a bunch of fools who worship a "dead" naked pagan man as their "god jesus".
If Isaac doesn't deny your lot immediately in the presence of God, he will also go to hell!!

Islam or surrender to a higher principle is one of the many attributes of the human consciousness. The others are sincerity, attachment, love, devotion, discrimination, equanimity and so on.

Here St Paul words are prophetic for muslims today in how they try to lead us away from the true Gospel of Jesus as proclaimed by His saints/prophets of the NT.

Gal 4:
8 Formerly, when you did not know God, you were slaves to those who by nature are not gods. 9 But now that you know God—or rather are known by God—how is it that you are turning back to those weak and miserable forces[d]? Do you wish to be enslaved by them all over again? 10 You are observing special days and months and seasons and years! 11 I fear for you, that somehow I have wasted my efforts on you.
17 Those people are zealous to win you over, but for no good. What they want is to alienate you from us, so that you may have zeal for them. 18 It is fine to be zealous, provided the purpose is good, and to be so always, not just when I am with you. 19 My dear children, for whom I am again in the pains of childbirth until Christ is formed in you, 20 how I wish I could be with you now and change my tone, because I am perplexed about you!

We need a human guide to help us understand and follow the set of instructions.
They are just tools.
We do not worship them.
As Muhammed pbuh, was sent as the final prophet for all mankind we believe we must listen to what he said!!
I thought I've been pretty clear with that post. You can put Jesus and Moses there, it does not change anything.
Muhammad came out with Allah. Muhammad told Allah said this and that... and one of the things he said Allah said was He who obey to Muhammad obey to Allah.

Why should anyone believe to such a claim?

Who tell us that all what Muhammad ordered to do even if semmed evil was the will of Allah?

Adam cannot be the first man on earth since in order to propagate the human race it would involve a most harmful eugenic practice such as incest among the progeny of Adam and Eve and among their incestuously born offspring and so on until, within a few generations, the human race would have developed serious genetic abnormalities leading to the complete degradation and ultimately to the extinction of the human family. Besides, in Genesis, it is narrated how the eldest son of Adam and Eve went to the village of Nod in search of a bride which indicates the presence of other human beings who existed along-with Adam, Eve and their progeny.

Did I say that send in my name means that this comforter should the same name of the Nazarene? This is what I have written last night.
"have you not read the words "send in my name", " Muhammad had nothing to do with Yeshua."
If you are unable to understand then it's better you stop discussing.
And yes to your surprise that "you" was referred to the apostoles and not to humans. Your lack of reading the Bible is make you pass for an ignorant fool.
Read this:
"John 16:7
Still, I am telling you the truth: it is for your own good that I am going, because unless I go, the Comforter will not come to you; but if I go, I will send him to you.
Here instead Jesus is clearly saying that if he does not go, then the Comforter won't come to them. Them who? That relation indicates that the Comforter has to come SHORTLY after Jesus, and that it cannot come if Yeshua is still there, and not 6 or 7 centuries after him." So yes the disciples awaited for the comforter and no one else.
rabbee: adam and his mate chaooah (TheComforter) cannot return, untill after Adam is put to death on the-tree. it's still the same old story as the last time, G-D gave it all. adam and his mate, always return on the evening dawn of the third day of G-D, after adam is put to death. just prior to the last day of G-D, here in always TheSame Story from G-D. and we are going to have to do IT again, because the world never accepts being here in TheStory of Creation from G-D here in IT. which is why the world never has any peace, because they all reject being actually here in TheTorah from G-D. and the deluvian shall always happen again, because the whole world refuses to consider being here and now in TheTorah. the whole world has made themselves, inelegible for GanEden again in TheTorah actually.

Also you can believe what you want, but should understand that opinions are opinions, let's use facts instead.
<quoted text>
No Adam cannot be muslim for a series of reasons. The meaning of the word muslim is misleading, under that definition anyone who believe in god is a muslim, hence, Christians, Jews and so on.
In today world a Muslim is the one who follow Islam, Quran and believe in Allah,(the god Muhammad came out with) is the one who created the universe, and Muhammad is his prophet.
This is a muslim, and Adam if existed was certainly not a muslim.
I have no intention of wasting time with a clueless closet christian who knows nothing!

Almost every statement you make is utter nonsense!

We believe that Islam is for ALL humans, because we can clearly see that from Quran and Sunnah.

Your dumb claim about you not believing is irrelevant. You are another clueless time waster here! How do you tihnk this universe came about? From something or nothing?

Allow me to make an exception in your case. You created yourself!

We believe that "Adam" was the FIRST human and the "father" of ALL humans. Creation to me makes sense when we know how to define "creation".

Your villa might as well be 1 km from the moon because you are a lunatic Christian who worships a man.

We "believe" that Adam submitted to the Will of God. Billions of Muslims and believers have this "chip" in their CNS.

You were not there duiring big bang? May be you believe Jesus created the world!!

Yes, you can believe what you want.
You have no FACT as such, but your think that you are in possession of fact! You cannot even pinpoint the position of a single electron you fool!

To us Adam, Moses, Abraham and Jesus are Muslims. It is up to you what you wish to believe.

To you BJ is god but you are being a typical ex facsist coward, being unable to put your hands up and say..i am a catholic!!

The meaning of the word Muslim is NOT misleading, under that definition anyone who believes in GOD who CREATED Adam, Abraham, Moses and Jesus is a Muslim.
That GOD is not a slave to any tribe or race.
That GOD does NOT favour a select few tribes or races.
That GOD is not a naked man.
That GOD never took on human form or the son of anybody.
We have already given you the "touchstone of belief"

If any Christian or Jew confirms that he/she worships that GOD, then they are Muslims in our view and we will treat them accordingly!

Just because you make up your own definition of Muslim, why should "billion Muslims accept it?

Prove to us that you are not a closet coward of a christian:

Tell Paul (and us) that Jesus is not God.
Tell Paul (and us) that there is no God.
DENY that Jesus is THE Son of God and/or God and/or Messiah.

Thank you.

rabbee: HaShem G-D always gives, the exact same story. no matter how much, you all mentally corrupt this in your own minds against G-D. the whole world is a liar, with their pretending to not be here in TheSame Precise Story again from G-D. the whole world is still making all the same mental mistakes, and expecting different physical results. and you cannot get out of this hell hole, you have all helped make. with the same kind of non-Torah thinking, that got you all into it.

Let me say this:
Paul is a liar.
He NEVER met Jesus the Jewish man.
Paul CREATED a Gentile Christ.
Please challenge this using the Gospels!
We can prove that Paul is a liar.
Can you prove that Paul actually met Jesus?

"Paul" was a clever character who made sure that he was FAR FAR superior to the small timer called BJ from a tiny Jewish settlement who was struggling with a couple of mates hiding from Jews who wanted him dead!

Paul made sure that he was superior to BJ the Jewish man from the Gospels by CREATING a Gentile Christ who was superior to BJ the Jew!

Paul is on record having spoken to "god" but BJ has no such honour.
I have given you a full list to prove that Paul the defacto FATHER of Christianity is superior to BJ the Jew.

You even said the I was not a priest. Now prove to me you know more than me.

Come on Paul don't let the Church down!
You made a claim that BJ and/or Jesus said to Jews he was God.
Now prove it from your Gospels!
Go on, give us chapter and verse, so our Jewish posters can also respond!(PROOF NEEDED PLEASE)
I you can prove that BJ (let alone Jesus) claimed he was God, then we have no hesitation in saying he was nuts!(PROVE TO US!)
Neither Jesus nor BJ claimed there were GOD.
The Holy Quran has authority over your ramblings.
Your holy books written by 3rd/4th century pagans and non theologians has as much authority over me as do the Harry Potter books.
Your books have to be written many times by many people to make them look believable but they are works of fiction that fail to measure up to even Harry potter books.

As soon as the KING MESSIAH will declare himself, He WILL DESTROY ROME and MAKE A WILDERNESS of it.

THORNS AND WEEDS will GROW IN POPE'S PALACE.

Then He will start a merciless war on non-Jews and will overpower them. He will slay them in masses, KILL THEIR KINGS and LAY WASTE THE WHOLE ROMAN LAND.

Church father #2:
"John 20:21 Jesus, therefore, said to them again,`Peace to you; according as the Father hath sent me, I also send you;' 22 and this having said, he breathed on [them], and saith to them,`Receive the Holy Spirit;"
