Who Is Allah?

There are 256357 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?”

Understand, these exchanges are saying OUR rabbis cannot be TRUSTED because they "CORRECT" or PERVERT truth and HISTORY.
Idiot I never said he fabricated anything. If I implied it, i didnt mean to.

WHAT I SAID (FOURTH TIME)

was that 16 years later another scholar looked into the issue and had a slightly different conclusion.]

This is how historical studies work.

Each work IMPROVES on the previous, and/or criticizes the previous.

If you have a problem with that, adress it to the second work 16 years later, NOT ME.

More importantly, read BOTH works. At this point you havent even read the first work. All you do it cut and paste, and ground your comments on reputation instead of CONTENT.

Moving on. i.e. please dont bother replying the same reply again.

Excerpts from the Gospel of Barnabas, Part-29

Chapter 61 : Parables

Â…There was a man who gave money to his neighbours that they might trade with it, and the profit should be divided in a just proportion. And some traded well, so that they doubled the money. But some used the money in the service of the enemy of him who gave them the money, speaking evil of him. Tell me now, when the neighbour shall call the debtors to account how shall the matter go? Assuredly he will reward those who traded well, but against the others his anger shall vent itself in reproaches. And then he will punish them according to the Law.

As God lives, in whose presence my soul stands, the neighbour is God, who has given to man all that he has, with life itself, so that,[man] living well in this world, God may have praise, and man the glory of paradise. For those who live well double their money by their example, because sinners, seeing their example, are converted to repentance; wherefore men who live well shall be rewarded with a great reward. But wicked sinners, who by their sins halve what God has given them, by their lives spent in the service of Satan the enemy of God, blaspheming God and giving offence to others tell me what shall be their punishment?" "It shall be without measure," said the disciples.

Note: Beautiful preaching indeed (MUQ)

Chapter 62

Then Jesus said: "He who would live well should take example from the merchant who locks up his shop, and selling guards it day and night with great diligence. And again the things which he buys he is fain to make a profit; for if he perceives that he will lose thereby he will not sell, no, not to his own brother. Thus then should you do; for in truth your soul is a merchant, and the body is the shop: wherefore what it receives from outside, through the senses, is bought and sold by it. And the money is love. See then that with your love you do not sell nor buy the small thought by which d work be all for you cannot profit. But let thought, speech, and love of God; for so shall you find safety in that day.

Truly I say to you, that many make ablutions and go to pray, many fast and give alms, many study and preach to others, whose end is abominable before God; because they cleanse the body and not the heart, they cry with the mouth not with the heart; they abstain from meats, and fill themselves with sins; they give to others things not good for them, in order that they may be held good; they study that they may know to speak, not to work; they preach to others against that which they do themselves, and thus are condemned by their own tongue. As God lives, these do not know God with their hearts; for if they knew him they would love him; and since whatsoever a man has he has received it from God,, even so should he spend all for the love of God."

Beautiful preaching indeed (MUQ)

For the "international readers," I ask if it is possible to be a Muslim while rejecting Mohammad as a false prophet because the Jews are strict mnonotheists, as they should be according to Islam, but they REJECT Mohammad as a false prophet, FOR GOOD REASONS, as they define GOOD REASONS, yet Mohammad HATED the Jews for rejecting him as a false prophet, which, by his reckoning, made them EVIL CREATURES who deserved eternal hellfire.

I think that Mohammad was quite wrong about many things, but especially his brutal mistreatment of Jews for rejecting him as false.

A silly, stupid, absurd and dishonest response! Keep digging the pit, that you are in, further.

A dishonest person can never be able to ask an honest question.

You continue to prove yourself repeatedly, a very dishonest person, Buford.

Why do you keep on wasting the precious bandwidth with your silly 1-2 liners?

Dishonest folks cannot and should use the word "PERIOD". The more they use it, the more the silent majority of international readers are convinced of their dishonesty.

Please stop being wicked and dishonest. Thanks

I suggest you use IMW (In my words) as that would suit you more. IOW does not suit you and neither does it go well with your silly and absurd 2-3 liners.

My million dollar advice.

Earlier, I had declared that question as silly and absurd.

Now, let me ask you a question and also note that honest questions are asked in the following manner:

How can you believe that Paul was really an apostle of Jesus or appointed by Jesus, when the man never even met Jesus and never sat in his company and did not hear a single word from Jesus himself? Also, Jesus never mentioned him to any of his disciples. Right?

Please keep in mind that the "Elders in hiding", did not appoint or name him an apostle of Jesus.

So, how can you believe that the man, who came out of the blue, with his own fictitious story and filled the vacuum left by Jesus and the disciples, who had gone into hiding?

This is what the silent majority of the international readers would like to know. Thanks
