Who Is Allah?

There are 20 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 believe in a god who granted slavery. You believe in a prophet that transformed many men and above all women into slaves. What's there to being proud with a god and a prophet like that?
The manumission of slaves is not the abolition of slavery, but rather is the faculty of slave owner to free its own slaves, but this does not stop to a person, a muslim to make slaves. So What Muhammad did was nothing great or revelant. It is not a secret why he granted the manumission.
Last but not the least where do you find Muhammad manumitted slavery into Quran? That news is only found into his biography, hadiths. You consider those books to be nothing but tales, therefore what's the reason for you to believe it? Unless you are a bigot and pick and choose the news, labelling as true, in the Hadith, whenever is convenient for you...
God never granted slavery, ignorant fool.

Muhammad did something, which Jesus even could not think of.

Muhammad got the clue from Qur'aan. The problem is that you are not well-read.

And you asked me a foolish question: "Last but not the least where do you find Muhammad manumitted slavery into Quran?"

How can you find Muhammad manumitting in Qur'aan?

Here is the verse of Qur'aan from Buford's favorite translation:

Qur'aan 5:89 "Allah will not impose blame upon you for what is meaningless in your oaths, but He will impose blame upon you for [breaking] what you intended of oaths.

So its expiation is the feeding of ten needy people from the average of that which you feed your [own] families or clothing them or the freeing of a slave.

But whoever cannot find [or afford it]- then a fast of three days [is required]. That is the expiation for oaths when you have sworn. But guard your oaths. Thus does Allah make clear to you His verses that you may be grateful."

You can see how manumission of slaves was recommended. Did you manage to find "or the freeing of a slave"? in the verse that I quoted?

I agree that you are not dead and your name is not Jesus, Rabbee.

Jesus is dead, dust, bones and history. So, you should accept that fact.

So what? It only confirms what I have said, Allah granted to Muslims the possibility to marry slaves. It also confirms Allah was pro-slavery. What kind of brainless imbecile are you?
When one marries a girl, she becomes one's wife, ignorant fool! And becomes a free woman. When one takes a girl for short time, she becomes nothing but paramour or a keep or a mistress.

Your predecessors gave Roman citizenship to many bastard sons, who became free. Every bastard child the Romans had from overseas slave-girls and even married women, became a Roman and was free. Right?

Does Paul, the Roman citizen ring a bell?

"As they stretched him out to flog him, Paul said to the centurion standing there, "Is it legal for you to flog a Roman citizen who hasn't even been found guilty?" " How did that fake Jew become a Roman citizen?

That was a free bonus knowledge for you.

There must be something in Roman archives. Can you check them out?

On second thought, I doubt that because tehy do not even have David and Jesus in their archives.

Everytime Quran mentions of slaves made by Muhammad and his followers, there is no a single line in Quran where Allah shows to be against it. You can find in that book stuff like Muslims can marry slaves, as in Quran 4:24. If you allow to a man, who is suppossed to be your follower, to marry a slave, without saying anything against slavery, it goes without saying you are granting it.

Moreover Quran 33:50 says :- "O Prophet! Lo! We have made lawful unto thee thy wives unto whom thou hast paid their dowries, and those whom thy right hand possesseth of those whom Allah hath given thee as spoils of war"

The third and fourth line made it clear your god is very pro-slavery, having given to Mu' them slaves.

I have no idea how can a Muslim believe to a god like that without having neither a bit of shame.

Are you capable to read and understand? It seems no. Quran 5:89 says that if you break your oath, then as PUNISHMENT you have to feed 10 poors OR free ONE slave.

It's clear that the freeing of a slave is seen by Allah as punishment and not as a act towards the abolition or manumission of slavery. Furthermore it says free of just one slave and NOT of all the slaves that one possesses.

Shame on you and your dishonesty.

All this does not change the fact that Quran 4:24 allows Muslims to marry slaves and that Allah is in favour of slavery.

You have no point in this discussion nor you ever made one. I don't see any reason to keep talking about it.

Where did he come from, or rather who is his ancestor is something that you have to tell me, not vice versa.

A person with brain would never make affermations without having any sort of evidence. Only a person with no brain such as yourself can be so stupid to affirm something without evidence, and believe it.
