Who Is Allah?

There are 256284 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?”

There you are. At least you tried, but Colonna, the clueless fool did not quote anything.
The caravan is mentioned as "Ghaira zaatis-shaukath" in 8:7-8, so one party was the armed enemy
and the other unarmed was the caravan.
And this had happened at Badr.
Abu Sufiyan, the smart ass quickly took his caravan and ran away. When he was asked why was he running away and where was his honour, he replied, "My honour is on the back of my camels". This is also from your sources. lol!
After the battle was over and your brothers and wakeels, the Meccan pagans were humbled, the Muslims divided the spoils of the battle. This was the first spoil they had gained and the Surah was titled "Spoils" which means Anfaal in Arabic. 
You should ask, if you do not know, instead of making junk comments, Mahmood.
You need to read the entire Qur'aan. You have read only cherry-picked verses brought up by the ignorant fools, Christian polemicists and other bloody fools.
Good night
Dont play that "entire Koran" card with me. You are telling me things that are not mentioned in the Koran, where did you get this information from?

How do you know what happened in the battle of Badr if you stated that Quran is the supreme source and rejecting therefore and by your words all the other sources? And don't forget that Quran is pretty vague in its content that you are left with nothing but extra quranic sources. LOL
Yes, that's where you enter in contradiction.
This is the reason why you keep corrisponding to Skeptic for years, when you write a contradiction, nonsense ect he's blind. You make your game and he makes his game.
So please tell us what happened at the Battle of Badr?

What source of Knowledge do you have?

Or you might say that there never was the battle of Badr!!

Deny when you have no knowledge!! That is the best tool of the ignorants!!

Excerpts from the Gospel of Barnabas, Part-82

Chapter 181 Only Good deeds

Jesus answered: "You have spoken well, O brother; so tell me, Who created man out of nothing? Surely it was God, who also gave [man] the whole world for his benefit. But man by sinning has spent it all, for because of sin the world is turned against man, and man in his misery has nothing to give to God but works corrupted by sin. For, sinning every day, he makes his own work corrupt, as Isaiah the prophet says: Our righteousness are as a menstruous cloth.

How, then, shall man have merit, seeing he is unable to give satisfaction? Is it, perhaps, that man does not sin? It is certain that our God says by his prophet David: Seven times a day falls the righteous. How then falls the unrighteous?..

Chapter 182

'Not only has God created man, as I say, but he created him perfect. He has given him the whole world; after the departure from paradise he has given him two angels to guard him, he has sent him the prophets, he has granted him the Law, he has granted him the faith, every moment he delivers him from Satan, he is fain to give him paradise; no more, God wills to give himself to man.

Consider, then, the debt, if it is great![a debt] to cancel which you would need to have created man of yourselves out of nothing, to have created as many prophets as God has sent, with a world and a paradise, no, more, with a God great and good as is our God, and to give it ne all to God. So would the debt be cancelled and there would remain to you only the obligation to give thanks to God. But since you are not able to create a single fly, and seeing there is but one God who is lord of all things, how shall you be able to cancel your debt? Assuredly, if a man should lend you an hundred pieces of gold, you would be obliged to restore an hundred pieces of gold.
Accordingly, the sense of this, O brother, is that God, being lord of paradise and of everything, can say that which pleases him, and give whatsoever pleases him. Wherefore, when he said to Abraham: "I will be your great reward," Abraham ;could not say: "God is my reward," but "God is my gift and my debt."

So when you discourse to the people, O brother, you ought thus to explain this passage: that God will give to man such and such things if man works well. When God shall speak to you, O man, and shall say: "O my servant, you have wrought well for love of me; what reward seek you from me, your God?" answer you: "Lord, seeing I am the work of your hands, it is not fitting that there should be in me sin, which Satan ;loves. Therefore, Lord, for your own glory, have mercy upon' the works of your hands.…

It shows how ignorant you are, Mahmood. Arabs were meticulous. They are the ones, who educated the Turks and many others.
There you go again writing a foolish and a junk post. Will write tomorrow.
Really? If those dessert dwellers were meticulous, then where are the archives? And where are the orignal manuscripts of the Koran? The Koran by its own admission claims to be a book. There had to be have been verses written down during the life of Mohammad, what happened to those writings? If they were meticulous, they should have preserved the orignal text of the Koran. Islam is a counterfeit religion.

<quoted text>No, you are the one who doesn't understand. You believe that references to similar nomenclature mean the same entity. Which is absolutely incorrect. This fact is seen in the common reference to the mono-theistic G-d of Abraham by the metaphor Rock. Just because the Jews use the metaphor Rock does not mean that they are referring to some pagan entity who was a rock g-d. The same can be said of the Muslims.
Just because YOU refer to the mono-theistic G-d of Abraham by the same word used by a bunch of Germanic pagans does not mean that you are worshiping a pagan idol.
I understood the text, I said you were off base with it.
For the rock David is talking about is the solid foundation of God's immovable character from straying away from His Holiness and righteousness.
God is stead fast and trust worthy in all that He does.
You accept the Muslim pagan god simply because Muslims say their pagan Allah god is one.
You don't question the moral character of the Muslim pagan Allah god.
So you and Frijolie accept the Muslim pagan god as being the God of Israel.
And I laugh in you and Frijolie's face.

LOL.

You have very little intelligence, fanatical retard.

Obviously, the bigoted Jews will try hiding the evil of their satanic cult and fellow cultists but a few dare-devil and free-thinking Jewish whistle blowers have exposed the evils in their own cult and community.

Google the site of Henry Makow, a Jew, for all the above gory details.

Makow is a Jew, not a Neo-Nazi.

Whether a Jew or a Neo-Nazi reveals the truth about the satanism in Judaism what does it matter since truth about a certain subject coming from any source is still truth.

Most importantly, the Tanakh is a living testimony of the savagery of this Baal-worshipping cult called Judaism.

There are dozens of Jews who've blown the lid of their evil cult called Judaism.

Thankfully, the Jews in India are truly an innocent lot whether they're observant, non-observant, mystical, agnostic or atheistic.

Henry Makow, Harold Rosenthal, Vicki Polin and others are Jews who've exposed the evil in their cult and community.

You have valid reasons for rejecting Sira and hadith, because they were written hundreds of years after the fact. But what other Islamic history do you have? The whole Islamic literary corpus is suprious and sketchy, especially the early years. Unlike the Ottomans, the dessert dwelling Arabs did not believe in archiving, as result, Islamic history, particulary its first 100 years is not to be trusted.
I reject the Sirah by fools like Ibn Ishaq, Ibn Hisham, Tabari, Ibn Sa'ad and some others. Those are accepted by polemicists and ignorant fools like you, who have not read material written by Muslim scholars.

I do not reject every Hadith. I reject only those, which are nonsense, absurd and do not stand correct under the scrutiny of Qur'aan.

Go to Islamic centres and find out. You have never done that.

Read this post carefully before you comment again.
"With the Lord's divine authority firmly established, we return to "The Kingdom" surah. Qur'an 67:20 "Who is he that will send an army to assist you besides Ar-Rahman? The unbelievers are lost in delusion." Another motivation, another teaching is revealed. Ar-Rahman is a militaristic god with an army. Jihad would soon become Islam's most recognizable attribute, the means the messenger would use to abuse his adversaries.
As we discovered earlier, Ar-Rahman was a pagan rock idol with a House like Allah's. The two gods vied for attention. And it's clear that Allah was slighted in the early going. Not only hasn't he been mentioned thus far, he wouldn't find his way into Islam for quite some time. It's not a very nice way to treat the Lord of the House. So why choose this name?
Muslim scholars have no viable explanation as to why Muhammad called his Lord Ar-Rahman. The best they can do is say that god has many names and that Ar-Rahman became one of their god's attributes. But that's nonsense. Ar-Rahman was the name of a pagan deity, one much better known - at least outside the tiny village of Mecca - than Allah. He was an idol - not an attribute. Further, all of the initial religiosity contained in the early revelations mirrors the religion of the Hanifs - the followers of Ar-Rahman.
There are serious problems associated with the prophet choosing to name his spirit Ar-Rahman. When Muhammad ultimately migrated from the shallow doctrinal pool of the Hanifs to the unimaginably deep reservoir of the Jews, he was forced to claim that his Lord was their Lord - the Biblical God, Yahweh. Otherwise, why were all the characters and stories so similar? But that was problematic. Although Muhammad didn't know it, the God of the Bible had a name - Yahweh. He didn't know because the Jews were afraid to say it for fear of blasphemy. And since he was illiterate, Muhammad couldn't read any of the 6,868 times YHWH, or Yahweh, was written in their Scriptures. Just like our Bible translations today, when the Hebrew word says "Yahweh," God's personal name, we read and say "the Lord." But Joe is not Jim. Moses is not Muhammad. And Yahweh is neither Ar-Rahman nor Allah.
Ar-Rahman was an idol of a pagan religious group known as the Hanifs.
Muhammad used that idol as his God before he came up with the name Allah as a God.
So you are Saying Frijoles that the pagan Ar-Rahman idol is the Jewish God that Jews worship.
Just to let you know what you stuck your nose into.
Try to solve the numerous problems and absurdities in Christianity.

For example, study all the absurd doctrines and your pagan triune God, including your idol Jesus, who was turned into God of pagans by pagans.
