Who Is Allah?

There are 255958 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?”

Ooh cheap score. MUQ made a similar mistake verse 49 instead of 48, i do not make a big deal of that.
It's simple, reading about 'submission' being repeated in verses....66:11, 13:156...
So a simple oversight or rather taking together.

The actual verse:
66:12 And Mary the daughter of 'Imran, who guarded her chastity; and We breathed into (her body) of Our spirit; and she testified to the truth of the words of her Lord and of His Revelations, and was one of the devout (servants).

Wamaryama ibnata AAimrana allatee ahsanatfarjaha fanafakhna feehi min roohinawasaddaqat bikalimati rabbiha wakutubihi wakanatmina alqaniteena

Maybe you could now focus on the plurality.
OK but next time, be careful. quote properly.

The verse talks about Maryam, the fetus or the zygote of Jesus and tells us that God gave life to the fetus.

The transliteration that you quoted clearly says "fanafakhna feehi".

Fanafakhna means "We breathed" in archaic English or simply "We gave life to".

Feehi is a combination of two Arabic words. "Fee" means "In" and "hi" means "it". So,'feehi' means 'in it'.

That "it' was the zygote or the fetus of Jesus. You don't call a fetus in early stage a 'he' or 'she'.

Now, describe what plurality and whose plurality do you see in that verse.

MAAT is incoherent and some times writes foolish posts. Buford is an angry man and always half drunk, when he writes silly posts.

In the last 2-3 days, I have noticed that MAAT has made some foolish statements and that is why I am taking her to task.

At least we now know for sure that bu-tard is a Catholic fanatic!
Bu-tard's deranged posts about murders, rapes, robbery can now be explained in terms of accusations that are levelled against his Holy Church that promotes human sacrifice on the cross and cannibalism. "At the Last Supper, on the night he was betrayed, our Savior instituted the Eucharistic sacrifice of his Body and Blood." (Catechism of the Catholic Church 1323)!
Now bu-tard can defend the rest:
- Naughty nuns and priests who follow Rev 14:4
- Catholic Church Fears Growing Vatican Bank Scandal
http://www.spiegel.de/international/europe/a-...
- Is The Butler's Holy Ghost NOT the official Holy Ghost?
The defendant said he was inspired by the Holy Ghost to rid the Vatican of ''evil and corruption'! They said he was MAD!
From court documents, trial testimony and the book itself, the anatomy of the scandal has taken shape: They describe how a 46-year-old father of three, said by court-ordered psychiatrists to be UNSTABLE, desperate for attention and with illusions of grandeur, came to consider himself inspired by the Holy Spirit to expose the Vatican's dirty laundry for the sake of saving the church.
- Probably Butler's Ghost was better than the Vatican's official ghost! As a result the head of the Vatican's own bank was sacked and poor butler of pope was arrested over leaks that exposed the conspiracies among cardinals and corruption in the Church's financial dealings with Italian business!! Why didn't the officcial holy ghost stop the corruption?
- Why does Vatican man of God have "secrets". If the representative of Christ can't be open and honest he should be sacked or are they waiting for Messiah to return to kick the Vatican man out so he would run out with a cross stuck up his posterior?
- Italian cardinals are subversively trying to gain more control in choosing Pope Benedict XVI's successor, according to a series
of embarrassing leaks.
- A steady stream of leaked documents since the beginning of the year has revealed the Holy See to be an unholy nest of conspiracies, backstabbing, and ambition. "Vatileaks," as the scandal has been dubbed, has smashed the Vatican's code of silence to reveal a long-standing tradition of bitter rivalries and corruption. The leaks point to at least three shadowy, interlocking plots:
**an anonymous campaign to undermine Cardinal Tarcisio Bertone, the Vatican secretary of state and Pope Benedict XVI's top deputy;
** a struggle over the future of the Vatican bank;
** Subversive attempts to gain control over appointment of the next pope
Lying Ex-Christian with an Attitude,

I don't excuse or justify anything that the Catholic Church has done in violation of the clear command that Jesus gave to his disciples to imitate his loving example.

For your part, what you dismiss as my "deranged posts about murders, rapes, robbery" are nothing more than DIRECT QUOTES from authoritative MUSLIM sources that glorify Mohammad's many predations and savageries "for Allah" because he was supposedly "His Messenger."

You haven't denied or disproven anything that I've posted from these sources -the Qur'an and Hadiths- while you HAVE spent a considerable amount of time attacking Christianity in general and me in particular.

Qur'an 8:40 "If people are obstinate, and refuse to surrender, know that Allah is your Supporter. And know that one fifth of all the booty you take belongs to Allah, and to the Messenger, and for the near relatives (of the Messenger)."
__________
Does this mean that "Allah" gets one fifth, "the Messenger" gets one fifth, and the "near relatives (of the Messenger)" get one fifth? That leaves two fifths of "the booty" (treasure and slaves) to be divied up by the troops.

Maybe what is meant is that "Allah," "the Messenger," and "the near relatives (of the Messenger)" get a COMBINED one fifth of "the booty" (treasure and slaves), or a one fifteenth share.

In any case, who gets to manage "Allah's" share of "the booty" (treasure and slaves)? Does the Qur'an say? I'm sure it does, somewhere!

Qur'an 81:24 "Neither is he a concealer, withholding knowledge of the unseen. Nor is it (the Qur'an) the Word of an evil spirit accursed, the utterance of a devil, the curses of Satan."

Tabari VII:97 "The morning after the murder of Ashraf, the Prophet declared,'Kill any Jew who falls under your power.'"

John 8:44 You belong to your father, the devil, and you want to carry out your father’s desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies.

*Safiyah was the widow of Kinana, a Jew, who was tortured with fire and then beheaded on orders from "the Holy Prophet PBUH."

Thereupon Allah's Messenger said: "It is your devil who has come to you." I said: "Allah's Messenger, is there a devil with me?" He said: "Yes." I said: "Is there a devil attached to everyone?"

So they cannot listen to the highest chiefs for they are pelted from every side, repulsed; they are under a perpetual torment, being driven off. Except such as they snatch away something by stealth, but then they are pursued by a flaming fire of piercing brightness."

Satan only has two fingers! Who knew?

Wait a second...is that one finger per arm, or are the two fingers on one arm and the other arm is a stump?
