Who Is Allah?

There are 253944 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?”

Today I saw the movie "Zero Dark Thirty" (See: http://www.zerodarkthirty-movie.com/ ). It's all about the U.S. hunt for Usama bin Laden, who was held responsible for 9/11 and the deaths of more than 3000 CIVILIANS in New York City and elsewhere, and no, I really don't care what either the "Truthers" or the Muslim apologists have to say about it all being an inside job, coordinated by George Bush and the Mossad; these "ignorant fools," to quote a certain Singaporean, are DISCREDITED by the FACTS.(See: http://www.debunking911.com/ )
I "wish" they make a movie about 9/11 incident.

And they "simulate" the fall of WTC-1 and WTC-7 by making a scale model of these buildings and demonstrate how it fell as the result of jet strike!!

Is it not strange that they were "so quick" to make a movie on OBL capture and killing....and "so lethargic" to make a movie on 9/11!!

What is holding them back?

Any clue?

Conspiracy theorist nutcase, you'll believe whatever lets your "rightly guided" co-religionists off the hook for 9/11.

—Muhammad al-Bukhari, Sahih al-Bukhari
Another description of the Buraq:
Then he [Gabriel] brought the Buraq, handsome-faced and bridled, a tall, white beast, bigger than the donkey but smaller than the mule. He could place his hooves at the farthest boundary of his gaze. He had long ears. Whenever he faced a mountain his hind legs would extend, and whenever he went downhill his front legs would extend. He had two wings on his thighs which lent strength to his legs. He bucked when Muhammad came to mount him. The angel Jibril (Gabriel) put his hand on his mane and said: "Are you not ashamed, O Buraq? By Allah, no-one has ridden you in all creation more dear to Allah than he is." Hearing this he was so ashamed that he sweated until he became soaked, and he stood still so that the Prophet mounted him.
The journey to the Seventh Heaven
Mi'raj
According to Islam, the Night Journey took place 12 years after Muhammad became a prophet, during the 7th century. Muhammad had been in his home city of Mecca, at his cousin's home (the house of Ummu Hani' binti Abu Talib). Afterwards,Prophet Muhammad went to the Masjid al-Haram. While he was resting at the Kaaba, the angel Jibril (Gabriel) appeared to him followed by the Buraq. Muhammad mounted the beast, and in the company of Gabriel, they traveled to the "farthest mosque". The location of this mosque was not explicitly stated, but is generally accepted to mean Al-Aqsa Mosque (Temple Mount) in Jerusalem. At this location, He dismounted from the Buraq, prayed, and then once again mounted the Buraq and was taken to the various heavens, to meet first the earlier prophets and then God (Allah). Muhammad was instructed to tell his followers that they were to offer prayers 50 times per day. However, at the urging of Moses (Musa), Muhammad returns to God and it was eventually reduced to 10 times, and then 5 times per day as this was the destiny of Muhammad and his people. The Buraq then transported Muhammad back to Mecca.

In the Qur'an's sura, Muhammad's mystic travel to the Heavens is quoted as:
Glory to (Allah) Who did take His servant for a Journey by night from the Sacred Mosque to the farthest Mosque, whose precincts We did bless,- in order that We might show him some of Our Signs: for He is the One Who heareth and seeth (all things).
—Qur'an, sura 17 (Al-Isra), ayah 1[4]
Sahih International translation:
Exalted is He who Took His Servant by night from al-Masjid al-Haram to al-Masjid al-Aqsa, whose surroundings We Have Blessed, to Show him of Our Signs. Indeed, He Is the Hearing, the Seeing.
—Qur'an, sura 17 (Al-Isra), ayah 1

All the other details were filled in from the supplemental writings, the hadith.
Took out half of the junk and stuff for brevity.

That is why I have told you before not to believe in Hadith, which is just like the ridiculous tales of the New Testament.

Here is the difference:

Satan showed Jesus, who was piggy-riding him, the kingdoms of the entire world.

God showed God's Kingdom to Muhaamd. That was a vision, fool!

Should read:

Yes, I have the clue and the reason.

If they make a movie on 911, it will make the Americans cry and cry. However, the movie on Bin Laden, will make Americans rejoice.

Personally, I am bored of 911. Americans should throw 911 out of their minds and move on. Do you see Iraqis talking about 303 everyday?

Actually 911, in my humble opinion, was Osama's revenge for Clinton's strikes. An act of vendetta.

Anyway, forget 911, throw it behind you and move on.

Tanakh teaches many scientific foundations
e.g. the world is set on pillars (1Sam 2:8, Ps 75:3), and when the pillars tremble earthquakes happen (Job 9:6)
God also sunk the sockets of the earth, and shut the sea behind bars and doors

ripe comment since I dont recollect a reason based argument from yourself regarding your religious path ever. Your arguments are always appear to suffer from logical fallacies and/or are based on faith.

Furthermore, we have discussed the sin of sodom many many times before, and frankly considering I see no evidence that the sin is anything more than extreme inhospitality (I see nothing in the text that labels it sexual) I see nothing wrong with sodomites.

And finally, before you knock lesbians, you need to have a clear discussion with your wife and daughters and nieces and aunts. Statistically speaking, chances are, one of them is.(Dont shoot the messenger)

Americans would "use" 911 for at least next 50-60 years!! Their Media would not let them forget.

How can USA "forget" 911? They might if they find a "new" enemy.

I can see a "sick" mind already!! The way Freud mixed sex in everything, so would you people add sodomy and lesbian with every male and female.

Actually, YOU added sodomy with every male and female. I just went out of my way to erase what you might consider "sodomy" from our lexicon due to faulty interpretations of the bible. Pay attention!

Furthermore, I never added Lesbianism to males. So thats your SECOND association. What a mind you must have.

Thirdly, most Kinsey polls have indicated that lesbianism is more popular that perhaps you are comfortable with. Dont blame that FACT on me. Dont make it so personal.
