Who Is Allah?

“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?”

Gospel of Barnabas
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gospel_of_Barnab...

The Gospel of Barnabas is a book depicting the life of Jesus, and claiming to be by Jesus' disciple Barnabas, who in this work is one of the twelve apostles. Two manuscripts are known to have existed, both dated to the late 16th century and written respectively in Italian and in Spanish—although the Spanish manuscript is now lost, its text surviving only in a partial 18th-century transcript. Barnabas is about the same length as the four Canonical gospels put together, with the bulk being devoted to an account of Jesus' ministry, much of it harmonized from accounts also found in the canonical gospels. In some key respects, it conforms to the Islamic interpretation of Christian origins and contradicts the New Testament teachings of Christianity.

This Gospel is considered by the majority of academics, including Christians and some Muslims (such as Abbas el-Akkad) to be late and pseudepigraphical; however, some academics suggest that it may contain some remnants of an earlier apocryphal work (perhaps Gnostic, Ebionite or Diatessaronic, redacted to bring it more in line with Islamic doctrine. Some Muslims consider the surviving versions as transmitting a suppressed apostolic original. Some Islamic organizations cite it in support of the Islamic view of Jesus.

This work should not be confused with the surviving Epistle of Barnabas,(1) nor with the surviving Acts of Barnabas.{2)

Textual history

The earliest document mentioning a Barnabas gospel which is generally agreed to correspond with the one found in the two known manuscripts is reported to be contained in Morisco manuscript BNM MS 9653 in Madrid, written about 1634 by Ibrahim al-Taybili in Tunisia. While describing how the Bible predicts Muhammad, he speaks of the "Gospel of Saint Barnabas where one can find the light" ("y así mismo en Evangelio de San Bernabé, donde se hallará la luz"). The first published account of the Gospel was in 1717, when a brief reference to the Spanish text is found in De religione Mohamedica by Adriaan Reeland; and then in 1718, a much more detailed description of the Italian text by the Irish deist John Toland. Both Italian and Spanish texts are referred to in 1734 by George Sale in The Preliminary Discourse to the Koran.

He was right in saying that. Members of the Jewish faith do not believe in the Christians' God.
You know that well. Right?
Hmm I think the leaders of all the three major abrahamic religion say they all believe in the same god. Even the Quran say Christian, Jews and Muslims believe in Allah, and you are against your never wrong book.

Do you think Allah and YHVH are the same god?

"All the sages agreed that Job was an Israelite. This must be so, for how could he be a gentile prophet, because Moses prayed that the shechinah should not rest upon gentiles and God granted his request, as Scripture says,'We have been distinguished -I and Thy people- from all the people who are on the face of the earth'(Exo 33:16)" (Baba Batra 15b)

gentiles do not deserve a prophet of their own, god is prejudiced and discriminatory

in their dialogues in the Book of Job, God is called Eloah, not YHWH; Torah/Law, the Temple/Tabernacle are never mentioned either

rabbee: exactly the same, as last time. with all you nobodies here, in TheStory of Creation again. with only adam and his mate, to beguin with again. kind of looks like G-D, is preparing to give the whole Story of Creation again. cause this world, ain't as smart as they are indoctrinated.

cause all the people, in this Story of Creation all vanished themselves. as people have become extinct, and there are only all you talking critters against the command of G-D again. so i guess G-D, is going to continue, to give this Story of Creation again. until there are people here in TheTorah, without all the talking critter not here in TheTorah acts.

cause i guess the subtle devils, did not have any trouble. convincing you all. that you could not possibly be here in, TheStory of Creation from G-D again. since it is too hard on your brains, to chew gum and talk about G-D at the same time. more or less believe in G-D, and your worldly religions of the domesticated beasts at the same time.

rabbee: then how do you explain the one alleged as Elijah? Who is always a Teeshbeet, and has never been considered as an alleged jew*. i am sorry but i am not buying your statement, since there are others like Enoch, Noach, and Avraham, Who are not considered as jews* either. as it appears, that all you here on earth are prejudiced and discriminatory. as you look at things, through your own prejudiced and discriminatory eyes. as you avoid all the facts, for the sake of your selective prejudice.

All I do know is that the all Jews and Christians are monotheists believing in one almighty creator. The Koran tells us that the same Allah revealed the Gospels and the Torah. Unfortunately the author of the Koran was unaware that there was no Torah and Bible to begin with. All these books were conjured up and penned by humans.

SC---Nevertheless Muhammad is considered to be more righteous and pious than the Nazarene.

HughBe--- Who holds such a view? Usually in the REAL world one cannot be more righteous than He/Jesus who has no unrighteousness.

SC---Muslims.

HughBe--- Good for them. Do you know that I can fly? The doctrine in question is as "truthful" and "real" as my claim that I can fly.

SC---The Nazarene was not that righteous either...

HughBe-- Certainly you have a very strange concept of righteousness. Listen to me and understand,YOU are speaking to someone who is at least among the very BEST of men and I am no Jesus. I cannot be compared.

Pardon my modesty but I have a nasty habit of calling a spade a spade.

interesting, Rabbi
however, "Tishbite" means that he was born in Tishbe, a place near Kedesh-Naphtali (Tobit 1:2)
the sages said he belonged to the tribe of Gad
so no, Elijah wasn't a gentile as Christians would like to believe

Only the Jews and Muslims believe in the same God.

Christians believe in a triune God, which neither the Jews nor the Muslims accept. Even many Christians do not accept that triune God. Then there are Christians, who say that Jesus is God.

The word Christian in Arabic, is Maseehee. Qur'aan uses the term Nasaara for the true followers of Jesus.

YHVH is no God and not the name of God.

I would say Allah is the same as El (pronounced as Ellah) or Hashem of the Jews. How many times do I have to broadcast that Muslims believe in the God of Abraham?

Qur'aan does not mention the word Gospels at all. It talks about Torah granted to Moses and Injeel granted to Jesus. And Injeel cannot be many books written by men. You just contradicted yourself.

Translators' use of that word does not mean that Jesus came with four Gospels, written by men after he was long gone. Right?

Ever heard of anything such as, Qur'aan, According to ABC, Qur'aan, According to XYZ?

rabbee: teeshbeets means; dwellers. they were they were/are the righteous dwellers in Ysrael. hence: righteous gentiles. and you can't even get the name Yaachov or Ysraelees right, why should i believe anything else you have to say

and there is a reason why the book of tobeet, is in the catholic bible and not even included in the tanach. as i hate to tell you why, the new testament in the tanach is not even included in TheTorah.

and no! i do not consider, catholics as sages either. in fact if this world today, teaches it. then it, is a lie somehow. even the fact that global warming and G-D'S anger at this world today, are increasing at the exact same precise rate.

as a matter of fact, all pestilence, plague and famine, also seem to be increasing at the exact same rate as G-D'S anger. no matter how many scientific excuses you have, that don't say G-D is really, really, really getting pissed.

rabbee: well the g-d of abraham, is not TheG-D of Avraham now is IT? an the g-d of ishmael, is not TheG-D of Eeshmael. because the devil, is always the liar somehow.

everytime you agree to alter origional scripture, you enable a false g-d to decieve you. every time you write a new testament, you enable a false g-d/s. and is why i even, reject the tanach.

i do not need any of your, gnostic new testaments. after G-D gave TheWhole Accounting for all seven days. because G-D has never changed how this Story of Creation actually happens. that alleged as men, allow to only be changed in their own corrupted minds.

G-D is giving the exact same Story of Creation again. and your minds have been altered, by the enemy of G-D to reject being here in IT.
