Who Is Allah?

There are 228427 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?”

Allah Knows Best.
All I did was to cite what the Quran says. Allah will not ask Jesus if he told them to worship a Trinity, or ask Jesus if he told them to worship him and the Holy Spirit, Instead, Allah will ask Jesus if he told them to worship him and his mother as two Gods besides Allah. Now while that might add up to three, that has absolutely nothing to do with the Trinity, right? Right? So Allah will think it was more important to ask about beliefs in Jesus and Mary as two Gods, than to ask about beliefs in a Trinity of Jesus and the Holy Spirit.

In fact, while the Quran clearly says the Trinity is wrong, it never mentions who is in it. Every time the issue of two other Gods besides Allah or Allah being one of three is mentioned, the other two mentioned are always Jesus and Mary.

There is no accusation in the entire Quran of Christians taking Jesus and the Holy Spirit as two Gods besides Allah. 5:73-75 deals with the subject, but while it is on the subject of Christians taking Allah as one of three Gods, and it continues on to tell us why they are not Gods, it never mentions the Holy Spirit at all. Only Jesus. But, it DOES mention Mary. Hmmmmm.......Could it be that she is the third of the three mentioned in 5:73?

Seeker,
The US government is the Culprit and is fully responsible for all the mess in the region.
Do you know what? I'm tired of listening to this crap. What an absolute insult it is for people who screamed for the US to get out of Iraq, to now scream that the US should have stayed and should now come back and fix the problems the Iraqis ran into as soon as the US finally did what everybody was screaming at them to do. The US did not even pull out. Even mister anti Iraq war Obama wanted more troops to stay, but the Iraqis wanted them out and would not meet any security agreement. So in a sense, they were shouted out of Iraq. All of the responsibility falls on the dysfunctional Iraqi people themselves. Never in history have a people been so stupid where they fight each other more than the occupiers. Leave it to Muslims, eh? Let's face it, short of acting like Saddam and simply gassing people and filling up mass graves, there is nothing that can be done with them. And every positive thing the US tried to do was continually sabotaged.

The US tried for 10 years, and the Iraqi people gave their clear vote on the matter. They shouted "GET OUT". So where is that shout now?

STRANGE: IS JOHNNY/BMZ - THE TOILET POT - IRANIAN BY BIRTH?

1) IF Johnny/BMZ, the shit pot, is Iranian as he claims, then, in all probability, he should be Shia since most Iranians are Shias but here on Topix Johnny comes across as Sunni and is in cohorts with MUQ, No Doubt and other sunnis. Strange. Sunnis and Shias have different worldviews of Islam and usually never get along and are in fact often at each other's throats and kill each other the moment they get the opportunity to do so.

2) Johnny/BMZ - the stinking shit hole - also claims he owns a world famous construction company, signs multidollar deals with paupers like Alex in London, dines at ultra-luxe restaurants in Singapore and Mumbai, puts up at superluxury holiday resorts, has studied advanced engineering, physics, math and law and is on the advisory board of several scholarly journals and is close to well-known film stars from Bollywood. LMFAO.

I agree. But as we know, they prefer to wallow in muslim conspiracy theories, and blame everything on jooz and zionists, as they dont want to face up to the facts of their religion.

Its true that "by their fruits you will know them".

The followers of islam are the fruits of the tree of islam, and they should ask if spiritually their teacher (mohammed) is a true or false prophet.

Looking at the news every day, can you say that islam is benefiting the lot of humankind?

Jesus was non violent and taught forgiveness. He forgave his executioners, As did the apostle Stephen when he was martyred. The apostle Paul suffered floggings and imprisonment. This history of the early church was one of persecution.

Compare that to islam where jihad (holy war) is a religious obligation.

This is not a small point, but is the main point. IS is in reality pure Islam. They are actulaly following the teachings of Mohammed. But the apologists and leftist terror supporters try to say that IS is started by jews. As if Jews want a caliphate :)

But returning to reality. They are always in a perpetual state of warfare. It is amongst muslim sects, killing each other, but it effects all their neighbours. Warfare is obligatory and continuous.

That is why the conflicts around the world won't be stopping any time soon, unless muslims "wake up" to what their religion actually teaches.

Matthew 7:15 Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep's clothing but inwardly are ravenous wolves. 16 You will recognize them by their fruits. Are grapes gathered from thorn bushes, or figs from thistles? 17 So, every healthy tree bears good fruit, but the diseased tree bears bad fruit. 18 A healthy tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a diseased tree bear good fruit. 19 Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. 20 Thus you will recognize them by their fruits.

... by their fruits.

Not true, Seeker.

Neither the Muslims had any problem with the US nor the US had any problem at all with the Muslims. The problems came after discovery of oil. That is where the West got greedy and exploited the region, which had already been exploited by the British a few centuries before. More problems came after the US and the UK planted Israel, without a thought for others and without any foresight.

Show me an Islamic terrorist organization or group that the US was facing 70-80 years ago and how come the South American countries have no problem with Muslims but they hate the US more !

Who messed up with the native Indians living in the North America and cleansed a majority of them? Did the Muslims mess up there? No! The British, the French and the Americans.

Who messed up with the Koreans? On what moral grounds was the Korean War ignited? By who? Muslims? The Americans. Right?

Who started the war in Vietnam? Muslims? The bloody American government! Right?

Who destroyed the democratic government of Iran in the early fifties? Arab countries or Muslims?
The US and the UK. Right?

Who is igniting the problem between the Shia Iran and the Sunni Arabs? The US.

Your country does not really have a good record, Seeker.

That is why I had called your country a virus and now I will call it a deadly virus that has infected the whole world. Your country is the source of all problems in the world. The only non-Muslims place that It is currently interfering is Ukraine, which is run by gangsters and beggars.

It is true that by their fruits you will know them. That is how the Jews, Gypsies, Muslims and poor Africans saw the 'horribly rotten' fruit of Christianity, her Popes and her Church.

The biblical Jesus was a sissy and a wimp! He did not stand up to the Romans for his fellow Israelites and mostly he spoke bad about Jews, which gives me the impression that he was not really a Jew.

He did not have to face and fight persecutors and was totally free to roam and wander. I think there was lot of freedom of speech in Palestine in those days. LOL!

That Jesus taught forgiveness, is absurd and bull shit, Adam. The earliest manuscripts do not have the sentence qualified by [a] "Jesus said,“Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing.”[a] And they divided up his clothes by casting lots."

By the way,'they' were the Romans. So, he had not asked forgiveness for Jews from Dad.

I have not seen any Muslims saying that ISIS was created or started by Jews. What is this obsession of yours with 'Joos'.

The whole world was primarily ruined by Westerners, who were also at each other's throats. Cut Jesus out from the past and the current situation of the world. Jesus came with nothing good, did nothing good for the world.

Show me what good did Jesus do for the world? List up 120 great achievements by Jesus.

Bmz, the fruits of the holy spirit, of the true spirit of God, are love, peace, joy, patience, kindness, goodness, mildness etc. That is not being a sissy and a wimp, but being a good person. You have do ask yourself did Mohammed have these qualities from the accounts of his life.

Yes, Muhammad had all those qualities and he had more good qualities than Jesus.

I will put it this way, "I think Jesus was not fit to tie Muhammad's shoe laces, Adam."

I had asked you to list up 120 good things that Jesus did for the world but you have not.

Muhammad had more qualities than the biblical Jesus. Jesus failed his mission, which was terminated and he was removed off the scene. Muhammad completed the mission given to him.

Can you seriously tell me what were Jesus' great achievements? Can you list up 80 achievements of Jesus?

WHAT SHOULD A RELIGIOUS BOOK COMPULSORILY INCLUDE?

Each religious scripture is limited by the personality of its author which is why misleading, false and limited information is found in the religious scriptures of the world.

However, a religious book, no matter how limited in scope, should essentially include the following key features if it is to be taken up for serious investigation in terms of rationality and mystical
experience:

1) Every religious book should lay out the blueprint of soul, self, mind, emotion, life and body and reveal how they're connected with each other and with general nature.

2) It should give out details of the various subtle planes of existence that're figuratively called the heavens and hells.

3) It should map out the specific force centers in the body/above the head to give readers a glimpse into the deep mind-matter connections.

4) It should lay out details of the phenomena of death and of afterlife.

SUNNIS OPPOSED TO SHIAS

MEANWHILE, a brainwashed Indian ISIS recruit, Arif Ejaz Majeed, an engineering student, was reportedly killed in a blast in Mosul, his relatives told the Hindustan Times. He told his family before leaving that he would meet them in heaven after dying for Islam. The ISIS has declared Majeed a "martyr". In addition, tens of thousands of Shiites from India are ready to defend Shia holy sites in Iraq and are prepared to fight the ISIS on Iraqi soil. If the situation in Iraq spirals out of control and if renewed waves of iconoclasm, indulged in by ISIS fighters against Shia sacred shrines, set in, then, the Shias from India are prepared to leave India to confront the ISIS in Iraq. Even Shia ladies have signed up. Earlier in the month, an influential Sunni cleric from India called upon Indian Sunnis to form an army of 500,000 Sunni youths to battle and kill the Shias of Iraq.
