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?”

Dr. Puin concludes from the evidence that he examined that the text of the Qur'an has been CHANGED. IOW, "Allah" edited the thing AFTER revealing it VERBATIM (including Hebrew, Greek, Abyssinian, Syriac and Persian words) to Mohammad and his scribes.

Put another way, George, your video does NOT help your "prophet's" cause.

Islam

Beginning as the faith of a small community of believers in Arabia in the seventh century, Islam rapidly became one of the major world religions. The core of this faith is the belief that Muhammad (c. 570-632), a respected businessman in Mecca, a commercial and religious center in western Arabia, received revelations from God that have been preserved in the Qur'an. The heart of this revealed message is the affirmation that "there is no god but Allah (The God), and Muhammad is the messenger of God." The term islam comes from the Arabic word-root s-l-m, which has a general reference to peace and submission. Specifically, Islam means submission to the will of God, and a Muslim is one who makes that submission.
__________
I would add that Islam at its core means submision to the will of Mohammad.

Excerpts from the Gospel of Barnabas, Part-4
Chapter 6 Three Magi are led by a star in the east to Judaea,

In the reign of Herod, king of Judaea, when Jesus was born, three magi in the parts of the east were observing the stars of heaven. Whereupon appeared to them a star of great brightness, wherefore having concluded among themselves, they came to Judaea, guided by the star, which went before them, and having arrived at Jerusalem they asked where was born the King of the Jews. And when Herod heard this he was affrighted, and all the city was troubled. Herod therefore called together the priests and the scribes, saying:'Where should Christ be born?' They answered that he should be born in Bethlehem; ..

Then said Herod:'Go to Bethlehem and search out with all diligence concerning the child; …
Chapter 7 The visitation of Jesus by magi, and their return to their own country, with the warning of Jesus given to them in a dream.

The magi therefore departed out of Jerusalem, and lo, the star which appeared to them in the east went before them. Seeing the star the magi were filled with gladness. And so having come to Bethlehem, outside the city, they saw the star standing still above the inn where Jesus was born. The magi therefore went thither, and entering the dwelling found the child with his mother, and bending down they did obeisance to him.…

Chapter 8 Jesus is carried in flight to Egypt,

Herod seeing that the magi did not return, believed himself mocked of them; whereupon he determined to put to death the child that was born. But behold while Joseph was sleeping there appeared to him the angel of the Lord, saying:'Arise up quickly, and take the child with his mother and go into Egypt for Herod willeth to slay him'.

Joseph arose with great fear, and took Mary with the child, and they went into Egypt,… The soldiers therefore came and slew all the children that were there, as Herod had commanded them.

All gospels are forgeries. They were forged over a period of ten centuries.

I believe Gospel of Barnabas is the best forgery among them all.

See, Buford, if the gospels were true, the Bishops would not have quarreled for centuries. And there would have been no Christianity at all. Jesus did not come to establish any religion or to get one established by pagan foreigners.

Instead of Christianity, there could possibly have been another sect run by Jesusees.

English is not my mother-tongue. I may sound arrogant but most assuredly, I say that I am highly educated, Buford.

My problem is that I can't stand ignorant fools and others, who stray off topic and offer me red herrings. Our in-house fish dealer, Stefano is notoriously famous for that.

One does not believe in history. One reads it. Even historians disagree. Right?

For example, there was no such thing as History of India, when the British grabbed the land. They wrote the History of India. After their exit, the Indians started writing their own history.

So, you must read and see what is true and what is not.

To me, History is also like Hadith. It must be put under scrutiny.

Are you telling me that that fellow, wrongly named Jesus, is still alive?

If you are, then I do not agree with you because whoever that man was, he is dead, dust, bones and history. Rabbee, It is a lie that Jesus is alive.

The subtle beasts of the fields of dried brown grass have lied through their teeth that Jesus is alive.

You and I know that he is DEAD!
