Who Is Allah?

“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?”

Buford,
The point is we do not have anything direct from Jesus and neither do we have anything from the eleven disciples. I excluded the one, who died twice or reportedly in two different ways.
We do not even have second hand information. What we have are accounts based on hearsay from people, who were far less than twelve and they were not the companions of Jesus or eyewitnesses.
And your SIX CENTURIES REMOVED "prophet" got it right?

LOL!!!

"Allah did not create man so that he could have fun. The aim of creation was for mankind to be put to the test through hardship and prayer. An Islamic regime must be serious in every field. There are no jokes in Islam. There is no humor in Islam. There is no fun in Islam. There can be no fun and joy in whatever is serious." ~ Ayatollah Moiz

8- The Four Sources of our Religious Jurisprudence

Our religious jurisprudence and researches are based on four sources:

1) The Holy Qur'an, the Book of Allah is the Main Source and the principle document of all the Islamic commandments.

2) The Last Prophet's Methodical way, the so called SUNNAH, and also that of the twelve Infallible Imams after him.

3) Agreeing in opinion or determination, formed by UNANIMITY of all the jurisprudents, and the learned, supposing to be COMPETENT to Imam's views.

4) It is the WISDOM, by which absolute reasons of the wisdom we intend, and not conjectures and surmises.
__________
I nominate MUQ of Saudi Arabia and bmz of Singapore as the thirteenth and fourteenth Infallible Imams, respectively.

WE BELIEVE that when a man lives among a group of fanatic, stubborn, and obstinate people; and if he reveals his ideas, he may fell in danger of losing his life, such a man has to hide his faith, not to lose his life in vain. In our religious jurisprudence to this sort of precaution the term `Taqiyyah has been given that can be translated to:(Dissemblance).

WE BELIEVE that the temporary marriage is lawful; and in our religious jurisprudence, it is termed 'Mut'ah.' From this motive marriage is of two kinds: The permanent one which has not a limited time: and the temporary marriage which is for a limited period, which the couple will agree on that. In many respects both of the wedlock's are the same.

We believe that if temporary marriage be not misused, it will give an adequate answer to many questions of the young generation of our time, who cannot afford a permanent wed lock, or those in long journeys either for economical or educational purposes.

Those who work against the temporary marriage are PAVING the road to fornication and obscene acts particularly in our time in which the age of marriage is up and lustful means are abundant.

Closing the door of lawful marriages means to open the doors of fornication and evil sexual acts.

Let me repeat once again that we reject all sorts of misuse in this respect such a making a play toy out of it or turning a woman into a means for lusts and passions instead of a real wife. On the other hand, no one should leave a good and useful law unattended, because some may use it in a bad way.

We respect and esteem all the other Islamic sects, and stay in one line of prayer with them, and perform the rites of pilgrimage as they do, and cooperate with them in all common Islamic goals and fields. Yet as a Shi'a we do have some particularities which were noted by our Prophet; and this is why we have chosen this school.

Some of our enemies insist to connect the Shi'ite somehow Abdullah Ibn Saba, as the founder of the sect.

Ibn Saba is said to have been a Jew convert in the life of Imam Ali. This claim or suggestion seems very strange to us! If you study all the Shi'ite Books you find in them no least interest to have been shown to the said man; and rather in contrast, all have declared him a misled heretic, and in some traditions we read that Imam Ali himself has condemned the man to death! After all Ibn Saba's very existence is under question, and some of the scholars doubt if such a man did ever exist! Even if we don't take him as a fictitious and imaginary man, he is of sure misled and astray in religion and far out of the path of truth.

WE BELIEVE that Shi'as has played a vital role in the Islamic knowledge, and some scholars are of opinion that Islamic knowledge is founded by the Shi'as.

This idea can easily be proved by the so many important books that Shiite scholars have written, in various subjects; such as jurisprudence, commentaries on the Holy Qur'an, tenets, and commandments; all of which are references of our studies today. These books can be found in all the important libraries and book sellers through out the world.

We believe that some mysterious hands are working hard to separate us, and to create disputes and hatred among Muslims, to kindle the fire of enmities! These mysterious hands do not want, Islam to play his vital role after the smash of Communism, and to fill the vacancies of materialism. Muslims should not leave their enemies unattended and to have success in their goals. There now exists a good opportunity for us to present Islam to the world, as it really is.

WE BELIEVE that if all the scholars and the leading men of all sects sit round a table to discuss the problems sincerely, with pure heart, and far from fanaticism, and obstinacy; they would of surety solve all the problems they have, and the differences would be reduced if not entirely erased.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shi 'a_Islam_in_Saudi_Arabia

In modern day Saudi Arabia, the Sunni rulers limit Shia political participation to a game of notables. These notables benefit from their ties to power and in turn, are expected to control their community. Saudi Shias are a minority comprising only about 10-15%, about 3.5 million, of the some 25 million Saudi population. Although some live in Medina, Mecca, and even Riyadh, the majority are concentrated in the oases of al-Hasa and Qatif in the oil-rich areas of the Eastern Province.

For years, they have faced religious and economic discrimination because they’re viewed as Iranian puppets. They have usually been denounced as heretics, traitors, and non-Muslims. Shias were accused of sabotage, most notably for bombing oil pipelines in 1988. A number of Shias were even executed. In response to Iran’s militancy, the Saudi government collectively punished the Shia community in Saudi Arabia by placing restrictions on their freedoms and marginalizing them economically.

Wahabi ulama were given the green light to sanction violence against the Shia. What followed were fatwas passed by the country’s leading cleric, Abdul-Aziz ibn Baz which denounced the Shias as apostates. Another by Adul-Rahman al-Jibrin, a member of the Higher Council of Ulama even sanctioned the killing of Shias. This call was reiterated in Wahabi religious literature as late as 2002.
...

The government has restricted the names that Shias can use for their children in an attempt to discourage them from showing their identity. Saudi textbooks are hostile to Shiism, often characterizing the faith as a form of heresy worse than Christianity and Judaism. Teachers frequently tell classrooms full of young Shia schoolchildren that they are heretics.

Testifying before the Congressional Human Rights Caucus, Ali al-Ahmed, Director of the Institute for Gulf Affairs, stated:

"Saudi Arabia is a glaring example of religious apartheid. The religious institutions from government clerics to judges, to religious curriculums, and all religious instructions in media are restricted to the Wahhabi understanding of Islam, adhered to by less than 40% of the population. The Saudi government communized Islam, through its monopoly of both religious thoughts and practice. Wahhabi Islam is imposed and enforced on all Saudis regardless of their religious orientations. The Wahhabi sect does not tolerate other religious or ideological beliefs, Muslim or not. Religious symbols by Muslims, Christians, Jewish and other believers are all banned. The Saudi embassy in Washington is a living example of religious apartheid. In its 50 years, there has not been a single non-Sunni Muslim diplomat in the embassy.

The branch of Imam Mohamed Bin Saud University in Fairfax, Virginia instructs its students that Shia Islam is a Jewish conspiracy."

"Since the fundamental question of ethics is how to define the good, there is nothing outside of ethics which precludes the view that virtue is achievable by force. If, for example, the good is a world that heeds God's will and reflects God's presence, then it is virtuous to prevent - by force, if necessary - the distribution of pornography or the drinking of alcohol or the preaching of atheism. One cannot exhort people to have blind faith in a being beyond their comprehension, and then insist that freedom - which means the right to act on the judgment of the mind - is a prerequisite. A moral code that urges man to surrender his mind to a higher authority is irreconcilable with the principles that man ought to live his life by his own thinking. If unquestioning obedience is a virtue, freedom of thought and action cannon be a right.

"If prayer is a duty one is obliged to perform - if, that is, the act of praying in intrinsically good, without any demonstrable connection to one's knowledge or interests - why shouldn't one be compelled to go though the motions, if that is supposed to bring greater glory to God? How many "sinners" throughout history have been forced to "repent" - indeed, how many have been tortured and killed - in order to save their souls and to please God? Of what relevance is the victim's lack of consent, under this concept of the good?

"But most secular codes of morality, too, are in conflict with freedom. If the good is an egalitarian society, for example, then it is virtuous to expropriate the wealth of the rich and give it to the poor. If the good is that which gives the greatest pleasure to the greatest number, then it is virtuous to kill off some minority of "undesirables," if the majority so wishes. If the good is the melding of the individual's unreal self into the collective, organic whole of humanity, then it is virtuous to establish a totalitarian state.

"The evil of the initiation of force lies in the fact that it is the negation of the mind of the individual. It makes the victim act not by the mandates of his independent perception, but by the dictates of a loaded gun. Only to the extent, therefore, that reason is a virtue can force be a vice. But to uphold reason as a virtue requires a very specific code of morality. It requires a morality which recognizes that human survival depends at root upon the use of the mind and which, as a result, holds rationality as the cardinal virtue. Under this approach, physical force - the obliterator of the very possibility of reason - is anti-life and is immoral. And liberty, the absence of force, is then indeed a prerequisite for virtue.

"But if reason is not a moral value, if virtue is based on dogmatically asserted duties or on subjectively asserted desires, then human understanding is irrelevant - is, in fact, an obstacle - to morality. Which means not only that there are no grounds for barring force in human relations, but that force becomes indispensable in obtaining compliance with unprovable moral imperatives. For without reason, how can communication and the resolution of disagreements ever take place, except by resort to fists and bullets?" -- Peter Schwartz, "Libertarianism: The Perversion of Liberty"

THE WORLD SCENE - THE SUBTLE & GROSS PLAY OF THE FORCES:

Zionists, Imperialists, Islamists, Communists, Scientists and Induists are all playing out a dirty game in several parts of the world with the Af-Pak stage being one of them and all this is being down for domination with money, ego-satisfaction and lust for power being the unholy aims. Their secret alliances, deals, duels, oppositions and feints have fooled the world for too long.

Besides, these diabolical human entities cannot remain peaceful for too long as it is not in their nature to seek harmony, peace and light and given their perverted psychologies and distorted vital instincts they love struggle, deceit, power games and conflict and as a result they've become puppets in the hands of powerful and highly intelligent adverse universal forces from the subtle planes.

Behind the gross material scene and unknown to the stupid, ignorant, egoistic and ordinary gross physical dimension of the human consciousness, a colossal battle involving the play of different universal forces using the unregenerate human media as their fronts is being played out - at present, various adverse vital forces are at the forefront, as they have been since very long, and are manipulating the world scene to their advantage.

Providence via the supramental descent is involved in a big exercise of checks and balances and as soon as the right opening or opportunity presents itself it will act with Power to clean up the extreme perversion, resistance and mess and deal with both parties to the conflict by playing up one against the other and will ultimately eliminate both of them to usher in the supramental manifestation on earth as the immediate next phase in the progressive evolution of the involved ranges of consciousness in matter.

At present, one party is being used to counter-balance the other.

There are a few interventions, that're increasing in frequency and intensity since the past few months, into the unregenerate vital-physical force fields, from the divine forces who're seeking, for the first time ever in the history of the world, an opening to engineer the supramental descent so as to dissolve all the murkiness, suffering, struggle and evil in the world once and for all and in the process the adverse vital beings are steadily being dislodged from their strongholds in the vital world and are increasingly floundering and losing their grip over the gross physical plane as well and in desperation they'll soon trigger off world war 3 and massive natural calamities over the coming months as a desperate last attempt to hold back or disrupt the supramental descent which once it is achieved or realized in matter will spell the end of the reign of the hostile vital powers and it will even mean that they will have to chose between conversion to the truth-consciousness or dissolution.
