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?”

Doesn't anyone wash his or her clothes when they get dirty in Singapore?

You don't know for a fact that Jesus was only wearing a loin cloth, but that hasn't stopped you from asserting it as FACT.

I understand that you are a mocker, and so intellectually dishonest that you don't even know when you are lying.
I make you taste your own medicine.

I have changed the word 'smelly' to clean. Now answer the questions!

Tell me Buford, why would the Romans take his clean garments, which he was wearing for two days or may be more? Were the Roman soldiers so poor?

Did they also take the garments of the two thieves?

Was that a Roman custom also?

How many garments was he wearing? The poor guy was only wearing a loin cloth like Gandhi.

How can you believe in that bullshit of four Roman soldiers dividing a condemned man's clothes and the fifth grabbed his tunic? Absolutely hilarious!

Excerpts from the Gospel of Barnabas, Part-21
Chapter 42: Testimony of Jesus
..Wherefore they sent the Levites and some of the scribes to question him, saying: "Who are you?"
Jesus confessed, and said the truth: "I am not the Messiah." They said: "Are you Elijah or Jeremiah, or any of the ancient prophets?" Jesus answered: "No." Then said they: "Who are you? Say, in order that we may give testimony to those who sent us." Then Jesus said: "I am a voice that cries through all Judea, and cries: "Prepare you the way for the messenger of the Lord," even as it is written in Isaiah."
They said: "If you be not the Messiah nor Elijah, or any prophet, wherefore do you preach new doctrine, and make yourself of more account than the Messiah?" Jesus answered: "The miracles which God works by my hands show that I speak that which God wills; nor indeed do I make myself to be accounted as him of whom you speak. For I am not worthy to unloose the ties of the hosen or the ratchets of the shoes of the Messenger of God whom you call "Messiah," who was made before me, and shall come after me, and shall bring the words of truth, so that his faith shall have no end."
And having said this, Jesus departed and went to the mount Tabor, and there ascended with him Peter ;and James ;and John his brother, with him who writes this. Whereupon there shone a great light above him, and his garments became white like snow and his face glistened as the sun;, and lo! there came Moses and Elijah; speaking with Jesus concerning all that needs must come upon our race and upon the holy city
Note: Transfiguration of Jesus is as mentioned in other Gospel, but John puts the word spoken by Jesus to John the Baptist. There is a clear discrepancy here-MUQ
Chapter 43
.. Then said Andrew: "You have told us many things of the Messiah, therefore of your kindness tell us clearly all." And in like manner the other disciples besought him.
Accordingly Jesus said: "Everyone that works, works for an end in which he finds satisfaction. Wherefore I say to you that God, truly because he is perfect, has not need of satisfaction, seeing that he has satisfaction himself. And so, willing to work, he created before all things the soul of his Messenger, for whom he determined to create the whole, in order that the creatures should find joy and blessedness in God, whence his Messenger should take delight in all his creatures, which he has appointed to be his slaves. And wherefore is this, so save because thus he has willed?
It's pathetically laughable the way your favorite Dante quoting, Mohammad anticipating "Barnabas" has confused John the Baptist with Jesus, and still you keep posting line after line of this execrable medieval forgery!

GOSPEL OF BARNABAS 115:
'Let a man content himself therefore with the wife whom his creator hath given him, and let him forget every other woman.'
MUQ believes that "Barnabas" advances the cause of Allah and His Post-Jesus Messiah Mohammad.

Come to think of it, "Barnabas" is like the Qur'an in that regard, seeing that Mohammad also "borrowed" much from Jewish and Christian and Heretical/Apocryphal sources, "reimagined" it to suit his political/theological purposes, and then dictated his version of "truth" to his scribes who dutifully recorded it as though it were the very eternal and unalterable word of Allah.

Whatever the Gospel of Barnabas may claim to be, whatever it may appear to be, whatever the Muslim world would like it to be, a general study of its contents and authorship shows that it is a poor attempt to forge a life of Jesus consonant with the profile of Jesus in the Qur'an and Islamic tradition. The Muslim world will do well to reject this book as a clear forgery - for that is what it unmistakably proves to be.

Have you ever heard of the Lollards?

Consider the writer of Barnabas, a lollard. There were many dissenters, who were fed up of all the misinformation given by the Christian Bible and the Church.

Ishaq is not my only source. All biographers agree that Mo was born around 570 AD. But why do you believe he was born in 570? It's not in the Koran.

By the way, I have read most of the material in your shopping list. Information about Mo in most biographies are all the same, the only difference is the opinion.

It is so silly of ignorant fools to think that there were no people, who wrote before Ibn Asshaq.
Do you know the names of people, who wrote before Ibn Asshaq?
I dont know the names of people who wrote biography of Mohammad before Ishaq. All those bloody books in the shopping list are all post-Ishaq. What other material are you in possession of that others are not?

In your post #156821, you had written:

"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."

The problem is that all ignorant polemic fools think and say that the idiot Ibn Ishaq was the only man who wrote about the events and as if there was none before. That goes for you too, because you wrote that.

There were men, who wrote even long before Ibn Ishaq did. It is quite obvious that you are not aware of others, who lived before Ibn Ishaq and wrote.

Go and find out yourself. I will not name those persons, who wrote before Ibn Ishaq. A little research will help you.

It is really silly and idiotic to think that nobody wrote anything for a hundred years and then came only one person, who wrote. Writing stories about the battles (Maghazi) is not known as Seerah or Biography of the Prophet. I do not know how that bloody fool's book got that title.

Happy New Year

Your problem is that you have gotten yourself in a quagmire, and don't know how to get out of it. And then you are lying by saying that you have history on Mo prior to Ben Issac - bulls&hit!! You have nothing. You have no names, no books, nothing. If were any, people would be writing and referring to it. Unfortunately for you, Ishaq is the earliest existing source information. Whether his narratives are true or not we dont know.

Why do you believe earlier sources and not Ishaq? All these years, you have been rejecting any material outside the Koran. I have asked you numerous times to name books and authors, and now you came up with some stupid link. Sigmud Frued is right about people like you. Men of religion are guilty of intellectual dishonesty and intellecutal misdemeanor - you sir happens to be one of them.

Happy New Year,

on his night journey Muhammad was said to have met all the previous prophets at the Temple site
they were talking and the topic of the Last Hour was brought up:

all turned to Abraham, but he said "I don't know"
next they turned to Moses who also said "I don't know"
then they turned to Jesus who said,
"No one knows the Hour except the Father. But my Lord told me that before it happens, dajjal will come forth and I will defeat him. It shall be that every stone will say: O Muslim, behind me hides a kafir, come and kill him!" (Musnad Ahmad)
