Who Is Allah?

There are 254799 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?”

You are jumping now, without even laying the proper foundations.
That is why I said, I want a proper discussion, point by point, not hit and run like you just pointed out.
That shows your haughtiness and not the proper frame of mind.
What is wrong if you choose a different name, just for this discussion with me on this very thread?
I have discussed things with everyone else the normal way. You are no different nor do you deserve any special treatment, nor do you set any rules. You accuse me of being "haughty", but I'm not the one who thinks they can set the rules and make make demands. You are. And at first, I was even agreeable to appease your stupid little demands, but by the third demand I said to myself "what am I crazy?". After all, I make no demands on anyone else before I can have a discussion with them, so why should I appease anyone elses demands?

Now just lay it out on the table or drop it. It's really not that important of a discussion to me. I've been through it many times and every single time the Muslim claims fall through their fingers like sand. I know all about Ahmed Deedirt, and I already know everything you will present. And, just to let you know in advance, if you want to use quotes from the Gospel of John to show Muhammad was the comforter, that means you have to accept the rest of John. And John is the book where Jesus clearly proclaims himself Son of God and Divine. Are you sure you want to do that?

Hello funny boy.
Jesus promised to run off so God could sent another Advocate/Prophet, right?
We know there is no "ghost" although churchians believe that there is one or a billion inside every one of them.
How many human Prophets came after Jesus PBUH, the "alleged" Jewish Prophet/Messenger, praised and elevated the man, and have a following of nearly 2billion people?
Let's take a wild guess...
Muhammed PBUH.
Proof is in the eating.
Nobody turned up after Jesus PBUH, the monotheist and submitter to Will of God, except Muhammed PBUH, the monotheist and submitter to Will of God.
(some idiot asked why 600 years......how many years did it take Jesus PBUH to turn up after David or Moses?)

The funny part is that this clown can't even defend Islam. At least other Muslims here attempt to do that, whether they think they succeed or not, but this guy can't even do that. He's a complete embarrassment for other Muslims here and they would tell him that except for they have stupid rules that say that you cannot rebuke a fellow Muslim in front of the kaffir, no matter how wrong his behavior might be. So they have no choice but to appease him and allow him to continually embarrass Muslims.

I've noticed that as well about Al-EX the Phallocentric, that he would much rather trash "BJ" in a homoerotic kind of way, than defend the bloody, thieving, and rapacious record of his preferred "prophet" Mohammad (a.k.a., The Comforter, in MUQ's book).

Just give it to me, okay? You don't even have to copy and paste it, just reference the post number and I'll go back and find it. But somehow, I know it's not going to answer the specific questions that I asked you. I know your crazy little games by now. And the next excuse is that you don't have to give me anything, right? Heard it before from you, many times. You are nothing but utter BS when properly challenged. The emperor has no clothes, so to speak. You do absolutely nothing but hide behind excuses and deflections.
rabbee: which part of the word no! are you having difficulty with? i do not play, your are my boss game. and you can play your every one who disagrees with you is bs, with your bs game all you want.

i am, not yours to command. why don't you command your other g-ds, to try and get me to do that? since your, allegedly their boss. since i know that G-D, is not going to give you with favor, with you bad attitude.

when one things is so obvious here, that you are not made in The-OUR IMAGE And LIKENESS of G-D. when you are not even close, to THE HIS IMAGE of G-D. maybe you should try and ask muq where it is, since you only think your his boss too?

your just another wrong, alleged as a person, trying to prove everyone else is wrong according to your way of being wrong.

Which came first? The Prophet and the Qur'aan OR Hadith? 
Do you think the idea of praying 5 times daily came from Hadith? No!
It came from Qur'aan.
It came from Muhammad's night journey story, and it is specifically mentioned. There is nothing specific about 5 times per day in the Quran. Now, do you believe that Moses really was able to keep correcting what Allah said and use Muhammad to do this as if he knew what the people could bear more than Allah?

<quoted text>
People followed the Sunnah of the Prophet, which was passed by generations.
The Sunnah comes from the hadiths. It is deemed only specific parts of the hadiths, but both came from merely people's memories of what Muhammad said and did. Same source for both. Oral transmission of what Muhammad said and did.

Do you think Muslims were praying only three times for 300-400 years and after the arrival of Hadith collections, started praying 5 times? I sincerely hope you won't be that stupid.
No, but both came from the same sources, and praying 5 times per day came from that ridiculous night journey story, not the Quran. And Bukhari did not collect the hadiths 300-400 years after Muhammad, it was more like a little under 200 years, so stop fudging the time span.

rabbee: now that is an obvious lie, since it appears i am TheOne bothering you. why don't you take that prayer to G-D, and have THEM Speak clearly to you or shut up? and yes i know that everyone who disagrees with you, is a babbling annoyance.

<quoted text>You are ignorant of were you and why you pray 5 times a day.
Muhammad copied from other religions.
W. St. Clair-Tisdall (W.St. Clair Tisdal, The Sources of Islam, The Orgins of the Koran, pp.236-237) writes that the Sabeans inhabited Syria. They were the followers of Seth and Idris.
Sabeans fasted for 30 days from night to sunrise, observed Eid and prayed for the dead without prostration. Muhammad simply copied their system of fasting (only change made was fasting from dawn to dusk) and retained the celebration of Eid and the prayer for the dead in exactly the same fashion as the Sabeans.
Thus the rules on fasting as prescribed in verses 2:183-187 were actually adapted from the Holy Scriptures of the Sabeans. In fact, the Qur'an confirms itself that the system of fasting was a copy-cat from other faith, but remaining coy about which religious scripture Muhammad copied from.
Here is verse 2:183 that says that the Islamic system of fasting is the mimicry of the other faith (Sabeans, of course):
2.183 O ye who believe! Fasting is prescribed to you as it was prescribed to those before you, that ye may (learn) self-restraint
The Sabeans possessed a book called 'Pages of Seth'. They observed 7 prayers a day, 5 of which were at the same hours as chosen by Muhammad.
They also venerated Ka'ba. Muhammad, most likely, learned about the Holy Scripture of the Sabeans from Bahira, the monk and from Salman, the Persian, because both of them had spent a considerable amount of time in Syria and were well aware about the sources, rituals and the religious doctrine of the Sabeans. Muhammad simply incorporated those in the Qur'an - passing them as Allah's dictum.
On the Sabeans, the Dictionary of Islam (Hughes Dictionary of Islam, p.551) writes that they worshipped the stars secretly but openly professed to be Christians.
Others say that they were of the religion of Sabi, the son of Seth, the son of Adam. Some say they were of the religion of Noah. Their Qiblah was towards the south, from whence the wind blows.
No doubt, after learning about the Sabeans, Muhammad was profoundly impressed by their religion and hastened to incorporate some of their rituals in Islam. He regarded them as the true believers of Allah. In fact, the Dictionary Islam (ibid) writes that the Arabs used to call Muhammad as Sabi-he who has departed from the religion of the Quraysh. The Qur'an mentions them 3 times in the following verses:
2.62 Those who believe (in the Qur'an), and those who follow the Jewish (scriptures)[Hadoo], and the Christians [Nasara] and the Sabians [Sabi'een],- any who believe in Allah and the Last Day, and work righteousness, shall have their reward with their Lord; on them shall be no fear, nor shall they grieve.
5.69 Those who believe (in the Qur'an), those who follow the Jewish (scriptures)[Hadoo], and the Sabians [Sabi'oon]and the Christians [Nasara],- any who believe in Allah and the Last Day, and work righteousness,- on them shall be no fear, nor shall they grieve.
22.17 Those who believe (in the Qur'an), those who follow the Jewish (scriptures)[Hadoo], and the Sabians [Sabi'een], Christians [Nasara], Magians [Majoos], and Polytheists [Ashrakoo],- Allah will judge between them on the Day of Judgment: for Allah is witness of all things.
Note: that those verses also contain the the Christians and the Magians (Zoroastrians).
There was angel Gabriel revelations.
Muhammad lied.

That is the reality of how Muslims live by, and yet deny that they kill innocent people who don't follow their tyranny rules.
