Who Is Allah?

There are 220126 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?”

Wrong again!
Please read this gem from Luke 22, which supports my point!
" Jesus Prays on the Mount of Olives
39 Jesus went out as usual to the Mount of Olives, and his disciples followed him.
40 On reaching the place, he said to them,“Pray that you will not fall into temptation.”
41 He withdrew about a stone’s throw beyond them, knelt down and prayed, 42 “Father, if you are willing, take this cup from me; yet not my will, but yours be done.” 43 An angel from heaven appeared to him and strengthened him. 44 And being in anguish, he prayed more earnestly, and his sweat was like drops of blood falling to the ground.[b]
45 When he rose from prayer and went back to the disciples, he found them asleep, exhausted from sorrow.
46 “Why are you sleeping?” he asked them.
“Get up and pray so that you will not fall into temptation.”
YAWN! And off they went to sleep!
Braindead Muslim Zealot,

By your "logic," the disciples falling asleep one evening after a big meal instead of staying up to pray with Jesus PROVES that they were ALWAYS falling asleep and NEVER prayed at all, EVER.

That would solve "Most" of your problems with Muslims!!
Muslims are the ones who should try and forge a "kinder, gentler" Quran, because the one version that exists now has been the cause of "good" Muslims murdering "bad" Muslims for centuries.

But the Nazarene was a spiritual person often dedicated to the prayers, and he also taught prayers to the mob. It is silly to assume, suggest or affirm that his direct disciples have never prayed.

See, you get sillier. I had already written:
"Mahmood,
You are also another fool.
Muhammad was born in 570 and died in 632. That is also not in Qur'aan. Do you have some other dates from the bloody fool Ibn Asshaq?
And you write another internet junkie remark "From what I understand, all this information comes to us from Ben Issac unless you have some other sources that no else is aware of.", which shows you have not read any other book.
By doing so, you make yourself look like a fool! What can I do, when I read such childish posts coming from adults? "
Now, in your own style, Who told you that Muhammad was not born in 570?
You have read only one book by Ibn Asshaq, which does not exist. Go and read other books. How come you have not been able to get some other books? Walk into any bookshop of repute or go the nearest Islamic centre. You can have dozens.
Please, stop asking me foolish questions.
You still have not answered my question. Which book tells you that Mohammad was born in 570 & died in 632? And since when have you started reading "other books"? That is why I am asking you to name a few "other" books.

When did I say that I had quoted from a book?

Read my post addressed to El Morales about you:

http://www.topix.com/forum/religion/islam/TT8...

Do you believe that the bloody fool Ibn Ishaq was the only person, who wrote a book about the prophet, which is the source of all your information? That is silly. Right?

So, does Ibn Ishaq tell you when the Prophet was born and when did he die? That is why I agve you the years of his birth and death. You can give me other years, if you disagree.

Actually you pointed out the differences between the two religion instead of the differences between their teachings, i.e. one god vs triune god. So you failed to prove your point. And for Christians, not all were forced to believe in Trinity, only few, to the rest it was taught it.
Colonna,

You are cracking me up. This is getting hilarious.

I showed the difference between the teachings. You always get it wrong. Read my post again.

All were forced to believe in the false doctrines. Those, who did not, were boiled in oil, burned alive, murdered, beheaded and so on. Even the books they had, were burned. That is why people were hiding their scriptures and books in caves, all over the region. DSS is one example.

Please read the darkest history of Christianity and the Church.

Relax! No worries. They are six hundred years behind bloody Christianity, but they will catch up faster. They would not need another six hundred years.

My point is that the twelve never prayed in his life time. They only believed in him just before he passed away. They might have seen him praying but I do not see them praying at all.

If they had really prayed, people would have seen and somebody must have reported but there was no hearsay reported by the writers of gospels at all, which shows that they did not pray at all.

Can you show me through the gospels, if they prayed? I can safely confirm that Jesus prayed always alone. No one can deny this fact!

Braindead Muslim Zealot,

You are one very twisted individual.

Try to understand this fundamental point: The problem isn't just that "good" Muslims are murdering "bad" Muslims "for Allah and His Messenger," but that they are ALSO murdering Christians and Jews and assorted other "infidels" and "blasphemers" who have been defined as such by that murder condoning "prophet" of yours in his hate-filled screed, the "Qur'aan," as you like to spell it.

1. Or the Quran in English?
Great question.
We have Quran in Arabic. So we can refer to the source instead of second guessing it in English Greek or Mandarin!

BUT...but..but..The HOLY Bible in English has a TINY, HOLY handicap!
It has no original source in the language of the hero.

2. "Dose" Allah allow sin?

Does Allah allow sin?
Another great question!
Allah has allowed the creation/evolution/"crawl ing" of a creature known as human...

Did Allah say that "He" was creating a Perfect being known as man/human?
If you can answer that question, you will not ask further dumb questions.

Addendum:

But please do not order the ignorant fools' silly Wikipedia. lol!

I was reading a book on the Prophet's life by a polemic English Christian fool, named Sir William Muir. He also mentioned 570. Can you please check out how did that polemicist fool get that?

Pakistan militants kill 40 in mass execution, attack on Shiites
http://worldnews.nbcnews.com/_news/2012/12/30...

QUETTA, Pakistan - Pakistani militants, who have escalated attacks in recent weeks, killed at least 40 people in two separate incidents, officials said on Sunday, challenging assertions that military offensives have broken the back of hardline Islamist groups.

A car bomb exploded near a convoy of buses taking Shiite pilgrims to Iran, killing at least 19 people and wounding 30, officials told NBC News, the latest attack on the minority sect.

Earlier Sunday, 21 tribal policemen believed to have been kidnapped by the Taliban were found shot dead in Pakistan's troubled northwest tribal region, government officials said.

Witnesses said the blast occurred as the three buses were overtaking a car about 35 miles west of Quetta, capital of sparsely populated Baluchistan province, site of many sectarian attacks, near the Iranian border.

Pakistan has experienced a spike in killings over the last year by radical Sunni Muslims targeting Shiites who they consider heretics. The violence has been especially pronounced in Baluchistan province, where the latest attack occurred.

Now this gives rise to another question:

In the passion accounts, they described beating, whipping, lashing with iron balls, etc, including spitting and crowing him with a crown made of thorns. Right? Details were not missed.

Why did they not describe how he was fixed up and how were the nails driven. What was the reaction of the crowd? What stories were circulating in the town and the neighboring regions?

How come such an important detail escaped the eyes and ears of the writers?

Tell you why! Because no nails were really driven.

If nails had been driven, it would not have been possible to take him down without rupturing his hands and legs. It shows that no nails were driven.

Now, do a simple test. Get a whole leg of lamb from the butcher. Place it on a timber piece 12" x 12". Use a 3/8 inch diameter x 8" long spike or nail and drive it through the leg into the timber.

Try to pull out the leg of the lamb and see what happens!!!

You can pull out a nail directly driven into timber but how can you pull it out from the leg of the lamb nailed to timber, with out tearing out the leg?

Yes, I had already spotted that, bro.

Can you please mount a slaughtered lamb on a cross, nail his legs well and try to bring him down, without damaging his legs?

Thanks!
