Who Is Allah?

There are 219991 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?”

Let the fool answer it first.
rabbee: well you know i am not impressed, with what your mental instability says about anyone elses.

and according to scripture, the person misnamed jesus. is TheOne G-D has put to death, on the tree. so that adam and his mate, shall be always returned from TheOne. since G-D is never, going to change, This Story of Creation. to your corrupted versions, of not being here in IT. just because you have all, sided with those same old subtle talking critters of the fields

as you accept all your alleged modern, gnostic talking critter mis-information. which is no different than the false information, as last time. as you reject all the true information from G-D. here in the very same Story of Creation as before.

and will you live long enough, to find out? if the misnamed person as jesus, is still the same two people. that G-D always places in charge of this world, as your G-D of TheFinal Day of appointment.

as i believe the enemies of G-D, have mentally decieved you all. out of being actually physically here, in The Same Old Story of Creation again from G-D. as this whole world sides, with the enemies of G-D, actually here in TheStory of Creation just again.

G-D is TheG-D of This Story of Creation Only. and you all just do not believe G-D, about us all being here in IT again.

-"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!
- I have given all the answers but you cannot understand it.
rabbee: well TheTorah states, that only Adam is TheSon of G-D. and your giving Him a fake name, does not really change that fact. no matter how many times, you are all fooled by that fake name from the enemies of G-D. in order to get you to agree with them, that we are not here in TheSame Old, Story of creation again from G-D.

and apparently calling yourself, jew, christian, hindu, muslem or any other type of pagan. does not make you true to G-D, here in This Story of Creation again from HIM.

4- Moses, Jesus And Mohammed(saw).
5-

who="Quadratus"
6- God promised Moses that a sign that a particular prophet was that final prophet, the one that God said specifically that He would require people to obey, was that He would be "like unto" Moses. Here is how my Lord Jesus Christ is like unto Moses. I challenge any Muslim to show us that Muhammed was more like Moses:
1. Both Moses and Jesus had kings try to kill them as infants.
2. Both Moses and Jesus were saved by seeking refuge among the Egyptians.
3.Both Moses and Jesus were rejected by their people in their first advent to israel.
4. Both Moses and Jesus left Israel and got a Gentile bride.
5. Moses saved Israel in his second advent. Jesus will save israel in His second advent.
6. In their times, both Moses and Jesus were known as the greatest miracle workers in history.
7. Both Moses and Jesus fasted apart from the people for 40 days and nights.
8. Moses codified the sacrificial system for atoning for sin, Jesus fulfilled it.
9. Both Moses' and Jesus' bodies disappeared after their deaths.

Mengal,

"God promised Moses that a sign that a particular prophet was that final prophet, the one that God said specifically that He would require people to obey, was that He would be "like unto" Moses. Here is how prophet Mohammad(saw).

1-Moses died of his natural death so as Mohammad . Unlike Jesus who was crucified.

2-Moses having father and mother like Mohammad(saw). but unlike Jesus had no father.
3-Moses helped by his followers and finally he succeeded to become king of Israels Like Mohammad who was helped by his followers against pagans he succeeded and became king of Arabs. Unlike Jesus his followers left him he became helpless and not succeeded in result was murdered.

4-Moses in his life enforced the Mosaic law or sharia, so As Mohammad(saw) but unlike Jesus his mission was not completed in his own life than his disciples distorted his teachings.

5- Moses codified the stoning the Rapist So did ordered Mohammad (saw) and fulfill the teachings But UN like Jesus law of tit for tat ask followers who one slap on one cheek present the other cheek

^ Moses buried by his followers after his death And so as Mohammad(saw) but unlike Jesus who was taken to heaven,
&-
7-Moses left his native place than come bake fight with Faroah and succeed. So as Mohammad(saw) also left his native place went Medina and come back fought and succeeded. Un like Jesus he was caught hold and hanged.

Not impressed! Just a few relevant points:
Maseehee is the Arabic word for Christian and yes it came from Maseeh in Arabic, for the English equivalent Messiah.
Nasaara has nothing to do with Nazarene or Nazareth or Nazarite.
YHWH or YHVH or Yahweh is NO name. Check it out from members of the Jewish faith and those, who know the real Hebrew, not the Hebrew4Christians.
Yahweh simply means "He, the one" or "He who is".
rabbee: well if YHVH in english, or YHWH in german, is not a name. then why do they substitute, HaShem, TheName or DerName for it?

and the word for HE is HOO, TheOne is HaEchad, and He who is MaHoo. so apparently muslem hebrew, is not that good of and eevreet lie either. and She is HEE in eevreet.

now shall i give you a hint: as to YHVH'S real meaning? the vave directly before a noun means the word and. so it is Y-H AND H. and if you translated that into english, it would be R is H AND S. essencially TheTetragrammen YHVH is an anacronym. where you take the first letter of every word, to make it.

now shall i give you another hint, that the first letter means Redemption in english, Retung in german, or transliterated hast to be Yeshooah in english. because of the femine ending, in TheTetragrammen.

now you have more than enough information here, to figure out what TheTetragrammen states. let's see how smart, any of you are.

Looking at your "HE is HOO, TheOne is HaEchad,", it should then be HHE, courtesy English.

Rabbee, listen to me, please. YHVH or YHWH is no name.

In fact, when God said, if God really had said, "I am who I am", God was reprimanding Moses or was telling him not to ask for God's name because God has no name.

God also did not tell him, "My name is Hashem or El or G-d or YHVH, etc". God simply stopped him by saying, "I am who I am".

Thanks for blowing up YHVH and YHWH both. lol!

It is funny that you question and provide answers, which you fail to understand.
Wrong!
It wasn't said and it wasn't written : "Thou shall not take the name of the Lord."
It was said and it was written: "Thous shall not take the name of thy LORD in vain."
That means, one shall not take the name of the LORD in vain deeds, false oaths, false swearing, etc.
Moses was calling the LORD most of the time. If you read Jewish Scriptures, you will find instructions to remember the LORD and teach/preach/pray, etc., while sitting, standing and lying down.
When praying to the LORD was not forbidden, how could calling the name of the LORD fall in VAIN?
Do people pray to the LORD by spelling out a G, a hyphen and a D?
God is not the son of a man or a man to have a name. You can give beautiful names to God and there is no harm. Moses called God Almighty LORD, which is Adonai in Hebrew.
<quoted text>
You are the one, who mentions it, so you should ask. If I were wrong, the members of Jewish faith would have certainly posted a note to correct me.
Where do you see G-d in here?
http://www.mechon-mamre.org/e/et/et0101.htm
http://www.chabad.org/library/bible_cdo/aid/8...
I think you want to turn around the point without face it.

If you think that if you were wrong the Jews would have pointed out this yet, then according to your logic I am not wrong as well, since none of them told am wrong. But aside this, I do remember in the past that they admitted YHVH is its name and in an occasion MAAT correct you giving me right. Now rabbee this is part by correcting you.

Is this what there is written? "You shall not take the name of the Lord, your God, in vain, for the Lord will not hold blameless anyone who takes His name in vain."

The question is the following, which name the god his lord does not want to be said/pronunced in vain?

Thank you.
I answered your questions. You asked for which of the 3 choices I belonged to. I said no. 1. You don't like the answer, but I'm not hear to feed you the answers you want.

You asked for how people could become full fledged members of Judaism, I gave you an example. We don't seek converts. We don't force converts. But, we don't reject converts either.

So, in Islam, what are the "few rules". The Thread is waiting for you to "Fill the room with your intelligence".

rabbee: well apparently your source, and my SOURCE are in disagreement. and my SOURCE, IS G-D. so what is yours, that is not from G-D HIMSELVES? cause i know what, I-SHALL-BE came and said to me. or do you think, that a son from a family with an athiest step father. figured this all out on his own, without any true help from G-D HIMSELVES. as it is obvious, i did not get any of this, from the world either.

as i even realize you do not accept, THE DESCRIPTION OF G-D GIVEN TO ADAM. with G-D as my only, True REDEMPTION. as your attempt to derail or side-rail the discussion, have failed. as G-D gave TheWhole Torah to Moshe, on mt seeanee. and it has all TheNames and Descriptions of G-D in IT. and even included, the future events of Moshe and TheMultitudes in it.

and it took Moshe a while, to realize just like me. there is nothing we can do to change it once G-D is told Our Story. i know the fustration of Moshe, cause i been there through it too myself. only G-D HIMSELVES can make changes to ThisStory of Creation. so if i can convince you all to sin no more, then maybe just maybe this will encourage G-D to make some changes. otherwise were just spreading out, more misery to this whole miserable world.

Hello, Mahmood
That is really silly and an absurd reasoning.
Were you really ever a Muslim before? If you were a Muslim, as you say, is that the way you read out the "shahadah"?
No Muslim ever reads or says or declares this way: "Mohammadan Rasool Allah". Crazy! You cracked me up!
Muslims will say: Muhammadur-Rasoolal-lah
The Midevil anti-Islam folks, I mean the Medieval Christian Crusaders and the folks of the modern Christianity started calling Muslims, Mohammadans because those ignorant fools thought of Muslims as his followers only.
The point is that your argument was wrong and you made it up. You shot your own foot!
I went to majalises, did matam, grieved for Hussain & his family, all for nothing. And you are right, it is actually Mohammad-ur-rasool allah. We also went one step further, we said "Ali an waliullah, wasi an rasool allah". I dont care what Christians called you, but you guys are Mohammadans. I say this because I firmly believe that Allah is Mohammads alter ego, at least in the Koranic sense. I guess I read the shahadah all wrong throught my life, but what does it matter now. As far as I am concerned, Islam is just another dessert cult.

I would advise you to read this wonderful book called "The Evolution of God" by Robert Wright. In it he says "And as for the business about Moses leading Hebrews out of bondage: There was no mass Exodus from Egypt writes Frinkelstein".

He then goes to say "But some biblical historians now doubt that Moses even existed, and virtually none now believe that the biblical accounts of Moses are reliable. These stories were written down centuries after the events they describe....."

I was once at a seminar in Toronto and the lecturer was Norman Stillman from the Univ of Oklahoma. I asked him if Moses ever existed and did he write the Torah. His answer to me was that from a theological perspective he did all of the above but if examined from a scientific perspective, none of it is true.

So you see brother bmz, stories about Khider, Moses, two horned one, Gog Magog, Jonah, Lot, She Camel, Ad & Thamud, Sodom & Gamorah, Uzair, dessert wondering for 40 years, armies drowning, sleeping for 300 years etc are excellent bedtime stories for children. Had my kids been younger, I would have relied on the Koran to keep them entertained.

Rasool...is NOT God!
You must first go away and understand what Islam is!!
"Submission in peace to the Will of God (not of Muhammed)in pursuit of peace"
A Muslim is the person who submits in peace to the Will of God (not of Muhammed) in pursuit of peace"
A mohammdan is a derisory term and you know it -just like koran/coran is.
Is Muhammad or Muslim or a Muhammdan?
Are you suggesting that only Muhammed was a Muslim and all are muhammadan?
You really are a moron.
What I am suggesting is that Allah is Mohammad's alter ego and that is why I call you guys Mohammadans. If you read the Koran, Allah is just pawn in this whole grand scheme of Mohammad's. You guys see god as having tailored the Koran's different verses to the varying circumstances Mohammad would encounter. My assumption in contrast is that Mohammad himself was doing the tailoring - even if often unconsciously and even if convinced god was doing it.

Go researach the Torah and find out for yourself. Oral tradition is not history and human memory is unrealiable and for this reason, the Koran is suspect as well. I doubt if Mohammad wrote the whole Koran.

Mohammad, being ILLITERATE, as some Muslims believe, didn't write any of the KORAN. Rather, he dictated it while his devoted scribes, a.k.a., MOHAMMADANS, recorded what he said.

I should add that devout MOHAMMADANS believe that the KORAN is the pure and unadulterated word of Allah, as though Mohammad was simply a human radio tuned to Allah's frequency, he himself having no input into or veto power over what was "revealed" by Allah via Jibreel. This is why MOHAMMADANS fly into murderous frenzies whenever the KORAN is desecrated. It is as though Allah HIMSELF (yes, the masculine pronoun is preferred in Islam) has been harmed, and of course, all such insults to the Majesty MUST BE AVENGED BY THE SLAVES!!!@!@!!!@
