Who Is Allah?

There are 254914 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?”

Absolutely brilliant two posts brother.
What you modestly suggest as ......
"this "unanimity" of all Non Muslim religions and religious groups against Islam, has guided some people to Accept Islam!!"....
..should in my humble opinion read....
"this "unanimity" of all Non Muslim religions and religious groups against Islam, has guided MANY people to Accept Islam!!"
It describes Ex-Christians like me plus many I personally know who have embraced Islam.
Islam is the ONLY true religion if you claim that you believe in ONE God.
Ofocurse, people are at liberty to completely deny God and they may even be right, but if you profess to believe in ONE God, then Islam is the ONLY answer.
Salaams.
Thank you brother for appreciation.

I stand corrected!!

I knew of a "some cases" due to my limited knowledge and exposure. You come from the background and you have more information.

I wish that we meet in the Hereafter as Friends going to Paradise. Amen

The words divine or non-divine are misnomers.
There's nothing like a divine or non-divine book or teaching since existence is unified and has gradations in the becoming/manifestation.
By putting in the word God or by adding some details about OBEs and the like in a book doesn't make it divine and the absence of these terms does not render a book non-divine.
Everything, gross or subtle, is a natural phenomenon.
It is of divine origin if God, Himself, was the author of the book. God has given us the Catholic Church with the authority, through the Keys given St Peter, to discern what works are of divine origin.

<quoted text>
The ONLY sensible part of your post is "What Muslims say about other religions"?
Muslims say that all major world religions in the beginning were brought by the Prophets of God and they all preached the same basic message:
"Worship only One True Lord of this Universe, and do not make associate and partners in His worship and shun idol worship and worshipping false gods. Follow me and do good deeds so you are successful in the hereafter".
What the Muslims say can keep for themselves if they can't bring any evidence.

Who made you sure the true god said worship him? If god really exist, doesn't need to be worshipped, nor does promise an eternal brothel in heaven.
MUQ wrote:
<quoted text>This is the basic teachings of all prophets of God and this is what is "Islam" in a nutshell.
What sense does it make to believe in your own made up story and tell to others they are wrong or they have distorted the message?
MUQ wrote:
<quoted text> But the followers of these prophets changed and corrupted the original message and got divided into different names and sects.
In fact, let's not forget Islam is divided into 72 or 73 sects. I guess this is an unaware admission from you that Islam has changed and corrupted the original message.
MUQ wrote:
<quoted text>These names like Judaism, Christianity, Hinduism, Buddhism etc are chosen by the followers and not a single one was given by their Prophet.
Moses never hard the word Judaism in his whole life.
Jesus never heard the word Christianity in his entire life (No one ever called him Jesus or Emmanuel is another matter)
Buddha never heard the word Buddhism in his entire life.
And no prophet of ancient India heard the word Hinduism in their life time.
Two things. It doesn't really matter whether or not those prophets have ever heard words like Buddhism, Induism, Christianity ect.

In the other hand, don't forget that these so called prophet never heard of something called Islam.
MUQ wrote:
<quoted text>So Islam is the only true religion on the face of this earth and that is to what we Muslims invite everyone.
And that is WHY all these people who follow their own made religions have become enemies of islam and Muslims.
Anyone who profess a religion thinks its religion is the only true one. Out of this subjectivism you have brought nothing, as your post shows it.

YOUR FAITH & MINE:

1) The ignorant individual talks in terms of your faith and mine and takes offence at criticism of his religion believing it to be perfect or divinely inspired and prefers clinging to its narrow and often damaging dogmas and as such remains stuck in the morass of what he calls "my faith".

2) The person of intelligence and character adopts a universal outlook knowing that truth is universal and has no particular preference for any religion or way of life and that it would not be far-stretched to say that truth has nothing to do with religion.

3) Intelligent people everywhere emulate the causal law based on universals and absorb uplifting influences from every quarter and in the process enrich their personality and pave the way for better karma and elevation of consciousness.

THE JEALOUS, WRATHFUL & REVENGEFUL GOD:

1) The petty and ill-spirited beings who insist on being worshipped display naked jealousy and intense anger when their followers question or switch faiths. Stoning and death penalty are the punishments for the apostates and heretics.

2) The absolute cares not who acknowledges it in thought or who worships it through self-realization since truth is independent of all parochialism and bias and stands upright at all times even if not a single person can be found to follow it.

3) The worship of the petty beings - G-d or God - of the various faiths and the keeping of daily, weekly, monthly or yearly mumbo jumbo rituals to please these petty beings are the exclusive preserve of the ignorant and bigoted.

WHO'RE THE MERITORIOUS ONES?

Those who closely follow the universal causal laws supporting life and growth in thoughts, words and deeds while staying far away from the manacles of religion with its perverse teachings and absurd rituals are the ones with real merit and who make the best inner progress that gradually moulds and effulges through the outer personality.

In the Bible: Lucifer is called “morning” or “dawn” star
(Isaiah 14:12) Angels & Demons frequently called “stars” in Bible.
But In the Koran: Allah Is called a star and Lord of the Dawn (morning)(Quran 24:35,
114:1-3). Also called “The Star of Sirius”(Quran 53:49).
In the Bible: Lucifer is called Extremely Prideful (Isaiah 10:12 & Ezekiel 28:2). Note that pride is a SIN in Scripture (Romans 1:30, 2 Tim 3:2 & James 4:6).
But In the Koran: Allah is called “The Most Proud One” and “One Filled with Pride.” Al-Muqtadir
In the Bible: Lucifer is called ruler & lord over demons (Matthew 12:24 & Rev 9:11).
But In the Koran: Allah is the “Lord of the Demons.”(Quran 69:43, 51:56, 114:1) and is
SERVED by demons (79:1).
In the Bible: Demons follow Lucifer and are his allies (Matthew 12:25-26 & Rev
9:11). Note: demons are ENEMIES of God and His OPPOSITION (Matthew 13:39, Luke 10:19 & Acts 13:10).
But In the Koran: Demons follow Allah and are his allies (Quran 72:13).
In the Bible: Lucifer is called Destroyer & Murderer (John 8:44, Malachi 3:11). Causer of disease and affliction (Luke13:16, Acts 10:38). Note: The REAL God is a Healer, a Deliverer, a Father and a Savior!
But In the Koran: Allah Called “Al-Darr” which means “Afflicter & Causer of Harm.” Also
“Creator of Suffering.”
In the Bible: Lucifer is Creator of evil & darkness from whom we need to be delivered
from (Matthew 6:13—“deliver us from the evil one.”)
But In the Koran: Allah is Creator of evil and darkness but Muslims are urged to seek refuge in the same one who creates the evil and darkness to escape evil and darkness (not a joke).[Quran 114:1-3]
Some of the other Names of Allah include Al-Mudhell, The Giver of
Dishonour. Al-Mumit, The Bringer of Death, The Destroyer (which is
the exact name Apollyon in Revelation 9:11.) But the Most interesting name which Allah has given himself is Al-Mu'akhir, THE GREAT DECEIVER (According to the Bible Satan is the Great Deceiver in Revelation. 12:9) So how can you believe any “god” who calls himself THE GREAT DECEIVER?
I wish to address a few points in your junk and stuff for the knowledge of everyone, including you:

Allah is not called Star of Sirius in Qur'aan.

Allah is called the LORD of Sirus.

An example: People, who worship Jesus, call him Lord. So, the response would be Allah is the LORD of Jesus.

Who gives death to people, according to Christianity? Is it God or Jesus? One of them is the destroyer. Right?

So, it is the LORD that gives death to people. So, what is your gripe with the Arabic word
Al-Mumit?

Mu'akhir or Akhir: It literally means the Last. Which ignorant fool and idiot told you that Mu'akhir means deceiver?

The LORD said, "I am the first and the last." It does not mean that God will die last.

First and the last means "Forever", so that means The LORD is forever.

I think you get all the material from the goons at the megalomaniac closet-apostate Ali Sina's site, where all mis-information is mostly written by hardcore Christians and other hate-bags, who keep floating in Ali Sina's cesspool FFI..

I have already written a note to you just a few minutes ago.

Just want to know the name of the site full of ignorant fools and clueless idiots, who misinformed you.

Please tell the goons that Mua'akhir does not mean deceiver.

If you really want to know, who is the truly Great Deceiver, it was Jesus' Father, who deceived the poor man and just when he needed him most, he abandoned Jesus.

allah is a god of islam so we must look into the origin of islam to see if it's of divine origin. So far we've found that it isn't.
Yes, you can discuss Allah with me but also answer my questions first before asking me irrelevant questions.

This thread is about allah and not about the Holy Bible or Jesus.

Does allah have two true hands, two true eyes, face and limbs? Does he sit on a throne above the earth.

I know that Muslims aren't allowed to think, because this could lead to apostasy. It's just that it would be nice for a change to actually discuss questions about where Mohammad clearly GOT IT WRONG.

http://quran.com/5/101-102

O you who have believed, do not ask about things which, if they are shown to you, will distress you. But if you ask about them while the Qur'an is being revealed, they will be shown to you. Allah has pardoned that which is past; and Allah is Forgiving and Forbearing. A people asked such [questions] before you; then they became thereby disbelievers.
Great! You just shot your own foot!

I do believe that English is your native language and you can read, write and understand well. Right?

Now we come to this part of the verses, which you quoted:

" A people asked such [questions] before you; then they became thereby disbelievers."

Do you know who were those people before us? They were the Christians or to be precise the disciples and the early followers of Jesus.

This verse refers to the followers of Jesus, who asked silly questions and bugged him all the time.

Example: Lord, show us the way! Jesus said, "I am the way". Ridiculous question was answered with a sentence that confused the fools. Thomas, the birdbrain said, "Lord, we do not know the way". Another fool, who was getting bored, said to him, "Lord, show us the Father and that would be enough."

Jesus was subjected to kind of irritating and annoying behavior by the not-so-intelligent disciples.

So, through the verses of Qur'aan, folks were educated and told not to irritate the Prophet with silly and stupid questions, which Jesus and other prophets faced.

Muslims,
I would ask you to cite an instance or instances in the Tanakh or Injeel where "Satan" threw in some misunderstanding that was later corrected by that SAME prophet, or ANOTHER (excluding Mohammad, because he is himself compromised). Was Moses so afflicted? What about Isaiah? Jeremiah? Micah? Habakkuk? Jesus?
I want chapter(s) and verse(s), please.
WE don't see Satan doing any damage to cause misunderstanding of revelations given to prophets.

Satan has no power over God's prophets. Job was a different case.

The men, who penned the New Testament were the most afflicted ones by Satan. You can see from their incoherence and absurd statements.

Remember when Paul under Satanic Influence said, "I please everyone.........."
