Who Is Allah?

There are 251283 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?”

rabbee: there are, three kinds of atheism. and stalin, hitler, muslini, obama, and the pope. all fall into, one of those three kinds.
first kind, we have not been here in TheTorah from G-D this time.
second kind, G-D is no longer giving TheTorah, after they crossed the river. and is no longer involved, in giving our story.
third kind, i/we are g-d, and there is no other/s.
and they are all religiously distinguished, by their own new testaments. that all deny, TheG-D of always the same physical accounting.
In a way anyone is a bit "atheist". After all if you believe in a god, you reject all other gods that other religions speak of.

There is a substantial difference between Islam and Judaism... Hebrews prophets didn't need to stress the audience by repeating every time YHVH is your god and Moses is his messenger, or... Isaiah is his messenger. Nor the Hebrews went to war and convert others into their religion.
The rest is same sht.

LOL
First off the only idiots that I know are the ones who believe without questioning or ask for evidences.
Second off You created a wrong sentence to make a point. You called them prophets and messengers of god, giving for sure they are that. I go a step back and say prove that you are what you claim to be. That is nothing to do with faith.
Third off how do you know that these people are prophets and messengers of god? Do you believe blindly to anyone that tells I am a messenger of god or you require proof?
<quoted text>
Actually there is no common definition of god, thus you are so wrong as always.
Forgive me, I shall make my comments but I am I cannot respond like for like, because I am not yet a mind reader...having to walk your minefield called "eng-talian" or "it-lish" with accoustic and semantic issues.

Two points...
1. You say.."First off the only idiots that I know are the ones who believe without questioning or ask for evidences."

I say "how many idiots that you know who believe without questioning or ask for evidence"?...Give me a split...how many Christian idiots and how many Muslim idiots?

2. There is a substantial difference between Islam and Judaism... Hebrews prophets didn't need to stress the audience by repeating every time YHVH is your god and Moses is his messenger, or.....
" WE say Allah is God and Moses is his messenger"
"WE say Allah is God and Jesus is his mesenger"..

Sh'ma Yis'ra'eil Adonai Eloheinu Adonai echad
Shema Yisroel, Adonai Elohenu, Adonai Echad
Shema Yisrael Adonai Eloheinu Adonai Echad...

3. How do you know that anything is true?
If you know any science at all, there is nothing we can be certain of.

4. The problem is any cluless person can an attack an idea or theology without being able to put forward his/her own set of alternative ideas or a code of conduct.
So you are doing an easy job that fits your level of intellect.

"The closer we examine this development the more extraordinary does it appear. The other great religions won their way slowly, by painful struggle and finally triumphed with the aid of powerful monarchs converted to the new faith. Christianity had its Constantine, Buddhism its Asoka, and Zoroastrianism its Cyrus, each lending to his chosen cult the mighty force of secular authority. Not so Islam. Arising in a desert land sparsely inhabited by a nomad race previously undistinguished in human annals, Islam sallied forth on its great adventure with the slenderest human backing and against the heaviest material odds. Yet Islam triumphed with seemingly miraculous ease, and a couple of generations saw the Fiery Crescent borne victorious from the Pyrenees to the Himalayas and from the desert of Central Asia to the deserts of Central Africa." --A.M.L. Stoddard, quoted in ISLAM - THE RELIGION OF ALL PROPHETS, Begum Bawani Waqf, Karachi, Pakistan, p. 56.

I always said that Yeshua was not the son of god, nor a prophet of god.
I despise Moses and Muhammad as worst characters ever.
We can agree to disagree...
I say that Jesus was a messenger sent to the JEWS.
I may not like what is written about Moses in OT written by those who have plagiarised the Tanakh.
The Quran is quite good about Moses.
I love the Holy Prophet Muhammed who showed us the correct way to return to worshipping one true God and who exposed the lies of mangod worshippers who are running like headless chicken even today.

Just despising people is not a good trait!

<quoted text>You are an ignorant fool.
You shot your mouth off with understanding how a Christian becomes a child of God.
Accepting Jesus as Gods Son is just the beginning, being reborn with water and the Spirit of baptism inters one into the family of God.
And one has to change his former ways and have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ Our Lord and Savior through the Church.
Their is a marriage covenant between Jesus and the Church.
The Church is called The Bride of Christ, as Christ is the Head of the Church, the sacraments of the Church are apart of the personal relationship with Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
If you want to know more, then visit a Church and talk to a priest or pastor of a Church.
None of that matters because you destroyed your own credibility by incorrectly citing scripture.

What They Say About This Man Muhammad(Peace be upon him)

"I have studied him - the wonderful man - and in my opinion FAR FROM BEING AN ANTI-CHRIST HE MUST BE CALLED THE SAVIOUR OF HUMANITY. " George Bernard Shaw in "The Genuine Islam"

'I BELIEVE IN ONE GOD AND MOHAMMED THE APOSTLE OF GOD,' is the simple and invariable profession of Islam. The intellectual image of the Deity has never been degraded by any visible idol; the honours of the prophet have never transgressed the measure of human virtue, and his living precepts have restrained the gratitude of his disciples within the bounds of reason and religion." --Edward Gibbon and Simon Ocklay, HISTORY OF THE SARACEN EMPIRE, London, 1870, p. 54.

"He was Caesar and Pope in one; but he was Pope without Pope's pretensions, Caesar without the legions of Caesar: without a standing army, without a bodyguard, without a palace, without a fixed revenue; if ever any man had the right to say that he ruled by the right divine, it was Mohammed, for he had all the power without its instruments and without its supports." --Bosworth Smith, MOHAMMAD AND MOHAMMADANISM, London, 1874,p.

The nation's claim to be a Christian country is about to meet its first challenge: the number of practising Muslims is set to overtake Anglican Christians.... There has also been a number of high-profile conversions to Islam from Christianity. These include Mike Tyson, the former world champion boxer; Chris Eubank, the British middleweight boxing champion, who has changed his name to Hamdan; and Cat Stevens, the pop musician, who calls himself Yousef Islam.... Prince Charles courted controversy earlier this year when he reaffirmed his claim that when he succeeds the throne, he does not wish to be the defender of only the Christian faith. Rajeev Syal and Christopher Morgan Sunday Times (London, U.K.)

"THE EXTINCTION OF RACE CONSCIOUSNESS as between Muslims is one of the outstanding achievements of Islam and in the contemporary world there is, as it happens, a crying need for the propagation of this Islamic virtue..." (A.J. Toynbee, CIVILIZATION ON TRIAL, New York, p. 205)

"The universal brotherhood of Islam, regardless of race, politics, colour or country, has been brought home to me most keenly many times in my life -- and this is another feature which drew me towards the Faith." Col. Donald S. Rockwell, U.S.A. Poet, Critic and Author.

"THE DOCTRINE OF BROTHERHOOD OF ISLAM EXTENDS TO ALL HUMAN BEINGS, NO MATTER WHAT COLOR, RACE OR CREED. Islam is the only religion which has been able to realize this doctrine in practice. Muslims wherever on the world they are will recognize each other as brothers." Mr. R. L. Mellema, Holland, Anthropologist, Writer and Scholar.

"People like Pasteur and Salk are leaders in the first sense. People like Gandhi and Confucius, on one hand, and Alexander, Caesar and Hitler on the other, are leaders in the second and perhaps the third sense. Jesus and Buddha belong in the third category alone. Perhaps the greatest leader of all times was MOHAMMED, WHO COMBINED ALL THREE FUNCTIONS. TO A LESSER DEGREE, MOSES DID THE SAME."

TO ALEX 123

All posts you wrote to me carry straw man arguments and have irrelevant points that don't bring you no where.

And no, you were not collecting what I and John said, you clearly said that I said.

If this is the level of answer I have to expect from you then don't engage a debate with me.

In your case it's better to shut the mouth, after already said a lot of idiocy and let the other question whether or not you're stupid instead of keeping answering to clear any doubt.
