Who Is Allah?

There are 256291 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?”

What need is there for a Jewish Messiah to come?
The Jews are a free people.
They are not in bondage.
The Jews are encircled by enemies--everywhere. As Micah says:

4
And this shall be peace: when the Assyrian shall come into our land, and when he shall tread in our palaces, then shall we raise against him seven shepherds, and eight princes among men.
5
And they shall waste the land of Assyria with the sword, and the land of Nimrod with the keen-edged sword; and he shall deliver us from the Assyrian, when he cometh into our land, and when he treadeth within our border.

6
And the remnant of Jacob shall be in the midst of many peoples, as dew from HaShem, as showers upon the grass, that are not looked for from man, nor awaited at the hands of the sons of men.
7
And the remnant of Jacob shall be among the nations, in the midst of many peoples, as a lion among the beasts of the forest, as a young lion among the flocks of sheep, who, if he go through, treadeth down and teareth in pieces, and there is none to deliver.
8
Let Thy hand be lifted up above Thine adversaries, and let all Thine enemies be cut off.

<quoted text>Muslims murder to silence those that reject Muhammad as a prophet from God.

Murdering people to silence them is proof that Muhammad is a false prophet.

Muslims are stuck being the evil in the world.

They are going to have to continue to murder people to keep them silence.

Muslims are busy all over the word doing just that murdering innocent peope every day.
Right now, Muslims are killing Muslims. So, you have nothing to worry.

All of above from you, is as ridiculous and absurd as Jesus being the son of God or God or the Father and so many other doctrinal Bull Shits.

If Muhammad had instructed us to murder, the first Christians would have been murdered as they stepped into Muslim lands. That did not happen, lying fool!

You call Muhammad a false prophet and yet you are still alive, kicking, vomiting and farting out Spirits. This already shows that we do not kill or murder others.

The main problem is that you have a false, absurd and ridiculous God. Period!

There is no philosophy in Qur'an. To know that there is only one LORD God Almighty, one does not need any philosophical depth.

Look at the New Testament and see what happened when the Greek and Roman philosophers had all sorts of absurd philosophies introduced into her books.

Even a 3rd Grader can make out all the absurdities in the NT and the shallow doctrines of the Church, Seeker.

That is why we keep on asking questions, which go unanswered.

What matters and what is more important is that the message should come from the messenger or the prophet, who was sent by God Almighty, not from Toms, Dicks and Harries centuries later.

Did Jesus submit fully to the LORD Almighty or did not? Can you answer this simple question?

Don't talk about Muslims murdering. I have already confirmed that Muslims are killing Muslims.

Jesus was quoting from Psalm 22, which he believed predicted his suffer and crucifixion
<quoted text>
Post number 175021 is my explanation or my take on it.
<quoted text>
Matthew 26
26 While they were eating, Jesus took bread, and when he had given thanks, he broke it and gave it to his disciples, saying,“Take and eat; this is my body.”
27 Then he took a cup, and when he had given thanks, he gave it to them, saying,“Drink from it, all of you. 28 This is my blood of the[a] covenant, which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins.
<quoted text>
Or, all has been fulfilled as was written in Psalms 22, which is why he quoted Psalms 22 when he said God why have you forsaken me. He thought he was fulfilling Psalms 22 which was why he said that.
You don't have to like the answers, but don't pretend they aren't even in the scriptures because they are. You can then call them corrupted, but don't ask people to show you where in the scriptures he said these things. If you will merely say the scriptures are corrupted, then don't ask anybody to quote from them. Does that make sense?
God does not approve of human sacrifice or cannibalism and the consumption of blood is expressly forbidden. Psalm 16:4 "...their drink offerings of blood will I not offer, nor take up their names into my lips" It's a sin to even speak the name of another god.

"You have the right to do whatever you want." no i don't have the right, to do whatever i want. i spent 41 years, disproving that. only doing everything, G-D previously said i shall do. i did not get to do, whatever i wanted. my life story, has already been spoken to me by G-D. there is nothing i or this world, can do to change it.

"Who says? You? A Guy who pretended he couldn't write complete sentences?" since i actually got it from G-D, it is not mine.

"I say what I believe. Period. As far as any one from God, are you saying you are from God? Is that what you are asking me to believe? If so, just clearly state that. i can't promise you that I won't laugh, but it would be helpful if you just say exactly what you mean." i say not what i believe, but what i have been given to say. my belief in TheExistance of G-D, is not based on faith. it is based on actual experience, and conversations with G-D.

"It's people retelling a story of what happened and it is never represented as anything else. That's why nobody ever attempted to call it the Gospel of Jesus, and instead all of them are the Gospel according to an apostles name. When people talk about something that happened, there will always be small deviations, but it's still plenty for me to get the idea." i have been accused by a fake name, of being jesus christ. even though that has never been my name, or TheOUR Name.
<quoted text>
"I never did. If you think I did, then give me the exact post number. Other than that, stop lying or trying to confuse things. It won't work." everytime you used the fake name jesus, in your replacement theory. you are, telling a lie. why should i relate, to any specific post? when everything you say about me, is a lie not supported by TheWritten Torah Scroll.
<quoted text>
"Actually, it seems as though you are the person lying now, because I wouldn't call anybody Jesus Christ." then why do you continue to use, that fake name for either Adam or adam? when it is still, bearing false wittness.

Bring Peace: Micah 5:5; Isaiah 2:4
Return the Jews to Israel: Isaiah 43:5-6
Build the Third Temple: Ezekiel 37:26-28
Spread universal knowledge of the God of Israel: Zechariah 14:9
And that doesn't broach the subject of whether Jesus actually fulfilled the prophecies you claim.
The only prophecies Jesus fulfilled are the ones about the modern day idol of Israel. He fulfilled absolutely no messianic prophecies. Christians count verses and take them out of context. The bottom line is the man is dead.

According to your naive affermation whoever submits to Abraham's god is a Muslim. Though, reality is different. Shamma is Christian, you are a Muslim and Eric a Jewish.

Does the Islam and the entire Muslim community agree with your personal belief about who is Muslim?

1) Al Ilah is the ONE and ONLY God and that Muhammad is his messenger.

2) To pray 5 times a day

3) To pay zakat (charity)

4) To perform Hajj (pilgrimage to Mecca) once in your lifetime, of you can afford it

5) Fasting during the month of Ramadan.

I see Eric can't be considered a Muslim by any chance.

Not to mention that Quran has always called Jews as such, and Muhammad had to deal with them.

Quran 9:29

Fight those who do not believe in Allah or in the Last Day and who do not consider unlawful what Allah and His Messenger have made unlawful and who do not adopt the religion of truth from those who were given the Scripture -[fight] until they give the jizyah willingly while they are humbled.

Your Al Ilah said to Muhammad to ALSO fight those who were given the Scriptures (obvious reference to Jews and Christians) if the don't adopt the religion of truth,(Islam).

There is a clear distinction between Muslims and Jews in that verse. The religion of Muslims is Islam, so no, the Jews are not Muslims by any chance, otherwise why should they have to adopt the religion of truth and pay Jizyah willingly if they are Muslims?.

Yout contradicting not just your religion, but even Al Ilah's holy words.

Bad Muslim!

The second coming is the resurrection from heaven. Christians claim this is past and you can't have it both ways. Either Jesus rose from the dead or he's coming back. Christians believe in at least 3 or 4 comings but it's all myth.

Not only did Jesus not fulfill all prophecies, he didn't fulfill any. A complete paragraph, chapter or Psalm is a prophecy. Christians count verses and also take them out of context. Accordingly, we've all fulfilled scripture.
