Who Is Allah?

Aug 24, 2007 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: The Brussels Journal

“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?”

Allah is the same God. Common sense should tell you that, because all the 3 major religions share the same holy text, and the same prophets. The promise ? Just curious, Are you referring to Judaism when you speak as such ?

No, it's the truth.
"Bright star of the ground" is your slogan. The waning moon is your symbol.
Satan has always been associated with the sickly moon.
Satan, also called Lucifer which means "Morning Star", fallen to earth and therefore "on the ground".
Wise up, you worship Satan.

The Most Holy Trinity: a Union of Love
It is said that a people's values can be seen in the god they worship. For Christians,``God is love''(1 Jn 4:8). But a God who is love seems like a philosophical impossibility. How can one God, who is perfect, lacking nothing in himself and possessed of no dependence on creatures, be love when love necessitates a relation to another?

The resolution of this paradox God himself has revealed to us: God is perfect unity, but a unity of three Divine Persons-- Father, Son, and Holy Spirit-- who are each equally divine. The Father, Son, and Spirit exist from all eternity. None precedes the other in time, but each are related to the others by a relationship that orders them with respect to the others.

The ever-living, all-knowing, almighty God the Father exists from all eternity and is the source of all perfection created and uncreated.

The self-conception and self-expression of the perfect Being is so complete that it is another person: God the Son, the image of the invisible Father,``the only-begotten Son of God, begotten from the Father before all the ages, light from light, true God from true God, begotten not made, consubstantial with the Father, through whom all things came to be''(Nicene-Constantipolitan Creed).

The love between the Father and the Son is so perfect that it too is another person: the Holy Spirit ``the holy, the lordly and life-giving one, proceeding forth from the Father [and the Son], co-worshipped and co-glorified with Father and Son''(ibid.).

But if the Holy Spirit is the love between the Father and the Son, how can God as a whole be called Love? Each person shares equally in the divine nature, so that each person shares equally in the perfections of the others. The only distinction between the persons of the Trinity is their mutual relations.
None of the persons exists in respect to himself alone, but each exists relatively to the other two:

...the ``three persons'' who exist in God are the reality of word and love in their attachment to each other. They are not substances, personalities in the modern sense, but the relatedness whose pure actuality... does not impair unity of the highest being but fills it out.

He is not called Father with reference to himself but only in relation to the Son; seen by himself he is simply God.''

Here the decisive point comes beautifully to light.``Father'' is purely a concept of relationship.
Only in being-for the other is he Father; in his own being-in-himself he is simply God.

Person is the pure relation of being related, nothing else.
Relationship is not something extra added to the person, as it is with us; it only exists at all as relatedness.

....the First Person [the Father] does not beget the Son in the sense of the act of begetting coming on top of the finished Person; it is the act of begetting, of giving oneself, of streaming forth. It is identical with the act of giving.(Joseph Ratzinger Introduction to Christianity, pp. 131-132; cf. Augustine, Enarationes in Psalmos 68; De Trinitate VII, 1, 2.)

Each of the persons of the Trinity lives completely for the others; each is a complete gift of self to the others. The complete self-giving not only constitutes the individual persons of the Trinity, but also their inseparable oneness.
Thus, for Christians the very basis of all reality is the loving communion of persons that is the Holy Trinity.

Muslim Muhammadan's worship the moon god they also call Allah.
But it is not the true God of Abraham and Moses.

This has to be a trick question, because no man can define Allah.
Defining the thatness, true nature or the thing-in-itself of any object is beyond the capacity of the exteriorized mind.

So, inferential knowledge is superficial.

There is only one way of knowing the thatness of a thing and that is by uniion of the subject with the object in consciousness.

Become one in consciounsess with that to know that.

Try defining the true nature or the thatness of a tree, stone, mountain, river or a bird and we always end up defining its attributes and not the essence or the thatness of the thing.

Similarly, defining the archetypal being called Allah is done only by defining its 99 attributes, while the thatness of Allah remains shrouded in mystery.

So, the inability to define a thing extends to Allah, a stone, a bird, a river and to anything else.

"The description is not the described; I can describe the mountain, but the description is not the mountain, and if you are caught up in the description, as most people are, then you will never see the mountain."

If so, then, why doesn't the Tanach cleraly mention Jesus and Muhammad as future prophets?

Why doesn't the NT refer to Muhammad in bold terms as the prophet to succeed Jesus?

Why is it that Jesus preached nondualism, while Muhammad strongly advocated dualism?

Why are the rituals of the 3 Semitic cults different?

If there is only one God, then why does Allah warn believers not to worship other Gods (Allah's rivals)?

How do you justify the exitence of the extra-cosmic, anthropopathic and creationist God in face of the evidence of the indestructibility of consciousness and energy that form a unified field of consciousness-energy?

Consciounsess and energy that form a unified field can neither be created nor destroyed.

The unified field of consciousness-energy is self-existent.

Explain creation from nothing.

No, he did not and neither do we. Fool, there was no moon god anywhere at that time.

Dr. Rafat Amari is another Xian polemicist and a bloody fool. The pagan Arabs did not worship the moon, ignorant fool.

This moon god theory was concocted by another Christian evangelical fool,'dr' Robert Morey in the early nineties.

What is the Arabic word for moon god? Check it out and let me know.

Christianity is actually Satan's dirty revenge against Jesus and God. Satan had it established through his minions Paul and the Church fathers.

Jesus came to save all peoples under the new covenant God promised the Jews in Jeramie 31:31.
Go not into the way of the Gentiles - Our Lord only intended that the first offers of salvation should be made to the Jewish people; and that the heathen should not be noticed in this first mission, that no stumbling-block might be cast in the way of the new covenant.
The first mission was for Jesus to suffer and die for the sins of the forefathers who died in righteousness under the promise of salvation to the Jews. The second mission came after His resurrection, the new covenant came into being with the Jews, and all people of the world came under the new covenant.
And Jesus then sent the disciple to all the nations of the world,
Matthew 28:19
"Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20. teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you; and behold I am with you all days, even unto the consummation of the world."
God does things in His own way Alex.
Please stop quoting the forgery and fraud, known as Matthew 28:19.

Peter never blessed or baptized any one in the name of the three alleged members of the monstrosity and absurdity known as Trinity.

You triune God does not exist.

What was the new covenant? Any description?

It is obvious you you are a Muhammadan.
Muhammad created a god in his mind, a god that he could control, and be what Muhammad wanted his created god to be.

And you follow Muhammad in wanting god to be what Muhammad projected in your mind.
Muhammad wound up worshiping himself as god.

islam does not share the same holy text with Judaism and Christianity. islam must claim the holy texts of Judaism and Christianity as corrupt to justify its teachings. allah is not the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. From the vary start islam is in contradiction with the Holy Text of Judaism, where it claims God asked Abraham to sacrifice ishmael instead of Isaac.

The point is that the God concocted by your Church does not fit the description of the God of Israel.
