Who Is Allah?

There are 230176 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?”

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.
Well said, HughBe

SC considers himself the best white-washed tomb. lol!

Have a good day. It is good night from me.

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
<quoted text>
but Rabbi, there was no distinction between Israelites and gentiles before Jacob/Israel
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.

How can you think like that?
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?
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.

To claim what you just said, first you have to know all men in this world, and only after that you can say to be among the most righteous or not.

rabbee: oh come on! muslems and jews, don't even use the same lies. how can a house divided, be for the same tribaal g-d/s? i believe TheG-D, WHO came to speak to me, as TheHisMale Child adam.

and i do not accept any of you, as true to G-D here in TheStory of Creation again. and i right now, may not be as pissed at all of you, and your grandmother sarah faye ann carney as G-D. but give me some more of you hard time, cause i am getting there.

as the last thing i want to be, is in chrage of this insane assylum against G-D. with all your divided houses, indicating way to many other g-ds. with all of you, helping the same old devil decieve your grandmother again. with her as the only way here in scripture, i can could of been decieved for a while.

with all of you, just had to do the devil's job for him again. with all of you, out whitewashing the devils fence for him. in this, whole morally bankrupt world. this whole world has a problem, because you all are the problem against G-D.

so when G-D, comes to visit with me again. i haven't one nice thing to say to THEM, about any of you or your grandmother right now. you can't even imagine, how embarassing you all are to your grandfather adam here again in ThisStory of Creation. as now i understand, why G-D keeps getting angrier at all of you.

Looking at your criteria down here, then you should add Christians as well. All of you believe in the god of Abraham, and all of you have main differences. So either all of you don't believe in the same god or all of you believe in the same one. You cannot keep two and left one out.

Moreover don't you know that just recently the Turkey has sanctioned the private local broacaster Cnbc-e for blasphemy, because they have showed in a episode God (a Christian version of) offering a drink, I think coffee, to Satan?
What's the reason to sanction them if it's not about the same god?

If you want to put the discourse on the level of acceptation, then I have to remember you that Jews don't accept Friday as holy day, don't practise Ramadan and they are not prohibited to drink alcohol. Have your god told you to follow the 613 mitzvot? So obviously using your own standard neither Jews and Muslims follow the same god.

I guess is that Maseehee messiah or messianic? Nasaara may mean Nazarene? If it's so the difference may be on belief level between the two.

Actually even Christians believe in that god, but the point seems to be that Christianity and Islam draw origin from Judaism, but one religion made up its doctrine from hearsay and distortions, and corrupted books, while the other was developed from a criminal mind.

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?
Okay Injeel, whats the big deal between gospel/bible/injeel? Are we getting into verbal gymnastics here? I have given you guys a contradiction to solve between 2:62 & 4:150-151, and instead of solving it, you guys are going on a tailspin trying to define Christianity.

Let me tell you someting. The authors of the Koran had no clue whatsoever, that the previous scriptures were all a product of the human mind. The Koran says Allah/God revealed the Torah to Moses - bullocks!! There was no Torah before 500BC. The person writing the Koran did not what the hell he was writing. There is no historical evidence that any of the "prophets" mentioned in the Koran even existed maybe except for "David" existed.

You people fail to realize how people back in those days were prone to create and repeat impossible myths. Instead of using your brains and thinking clearly and asking for evidence, you swallow all this bull&shit without question.

Allah aka God may not be the father of Jesus but he supposedly the almighty creator which Jews and Christians believe in. 2:62 says nothing about which brand of Christian, Jews, or Sabians. It refers to Christians and Jews in general. No need to talk to a Rabbi because no Jew has ever believed Mohammad.
-"May" not be the father of Jesus? Who says that? You or Christian?
Muslims categorically say God is NOT Jesus' Father.

- Do "Christians" believe in God the Son?

- You NEED to talk to Rabbi, because no Jew who practises Judaism as his religion, has ever believed Jesus either!

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?
Give it a rest stefanny!
Either your English is appalling or you are a retard or both.
What you "think" is not worth a lot but let's enjoy this banter anyway...

Does Quran say Christians believe in Allah or does it say Christians "who" believe in Allah....?

Here is a surprising revelation, if you can prove me wrong I would appreciate it.

- One lot of Abrahamaic people "effectively" believe that "their god" favours only them on the basis of their race/tribe/blood and that their god wants all gentiles utterly destroyed for worshipping "other" gods.

- One lot of Abrahamaic people "effectively" believe that the gentile-hating god came in non-gentile human form as his own son to die for the sins of non-gentiles and gentiles!

- One lot of Abrahamaic people believe that they cannot own the God who loves sustains all creation. They "effectively" believe that pious people irrespective of their race/colour/nation end up getting promoted in the hereafter! They also believe that God has no equals and that God has no son god or daughter god.

Name them!

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.
Not all of them are monotheists!
god the father, god the son and god the ghost...cannot be one person and they know it too. how can god the son pray to god the father? how does that work?
koran..koran may be telling you loads of things but what does Al Quran say?
the "person" who "wrote" the Quran knew a bit more than many!
The "person" who "wrote" the Quran said Jesus is not God and that is spot on!
The "person" who "wrote" the Quran is super human, supreme or what?

First, Chinese is not a religion.

Second, the unique Chinese religions are not Abrahamic.

Finally, it was you who was trying to be divisive by trying to ridicule other religions. I merely applied what YOU said to my beliefs. I did not disparage anyone else's beliefs. I only supported mine.

Here is what you said.

Hi dizzy fool,

Quran 2:69
Those who believe (in the Qur'an), and those who follow the Jewish (scriptures), and the Christians and the Sabians,- 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.

As evident from this verse, Allah aka Jibreel aka Muhammad makes no distinction AMONG Christians. So Christians means Christians. After he named the Jews, Christians and Sabians he called out to all the people who believe in Allah and last day, giving for obvious that Jews, Christians and Sabians, believe in Allah and last day.

You said you won't correspond with him but you can't keep your words for more than few hours... pathetic chap.
