Who Is Allah?

Aug 24, 2007 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: The Brussels Journal

“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?”

From the desk of Soeren Kern on Fri, 2007-08-24 11:56 Europeans love to mock the salience of religion in American society. via The Brussels Journal

My question is, have you read this? If yes, respond NOW.

Magician/divinator please FOCUS.

HughBe--- Let me tell you a story. Once there was a young man that was being arrested by the police. His father cried out to him and said, be respectful to the police and OBEY them. He then said to the police treat my son fairly and kindly.

Quote the facts that are in evidence which support your position. Quote the facts that support the position that the arrest was moral, justified, merited and lawful.

Nowhere in MY story do I state that the arrest was proper, moral, justified, merited or lawful. Prove otherwise by quoting.

The story of demons is not nonsense. Christians like Buford believe in that.
Where did you find the story of God dealing with a rebel angel? You must have read in some books from the Christian Church!
The name Iblis sounds a ring?

Like normal, you have everything ass backward. Under English Common Law, the basis of law in both the US and Jamaica, decisions are to be made on the basis of facts in evidence. It is objectional for either side to ask questions based upon facts not in evidence. A question based upon facts not in evidence is stricken as without foundation.

Your story does not say that the arrest was improper, immoral, unjustified, unmerited or unlawful. Based upon the judicial rules of both the US and Jamaica, I answer your question upon the facts in evidence and assume no facts not in evidence.

The answer is yes.

Thanks for your views, Eric. We can agree to disagree and agree where we can. No worries.
Eric---The 7 are the prime laws that should apply to all.

BMZ---Thanks for your views, Eric. We can agree to disagree and agree where we can.

HughBe--- The 7 are an example of the LIES and DECEPTION of the Judahites and more so of their masters that have misled them.

Young Eric and other Judahites here are just as no good as their masters and I say this because they have no excuse or cannot claim that they don't know better.

Let us look at the 7. The same 7 are subdivided by the Judahites and applied to themselves. The fact is the same thing can be done for the non-Jews and therefore you would end up with MUCH more than 7 when .

The thing is Judahites want to feel special and important and in achieving this they will not stop at anything and so they will DECEIVE among other things.

Finally, I have pointed out to the half-wits i.e. Eric and company that Noah KNEW about the laws of clean and unclean otherwise he may have sacrificed his favourite DOG to God or for that matter his favourite food a PIG. These INCLUSION of these laws would also expand the 7. But no the Judahites must be SPECIAL.

You really need to stop fooling yourself and when you do you will realize that others see CS and LIES that you speak and promote. Have some basic pride and sense of decency.

I know the name very well. So, what is your point?

Was Iblis an angel before he disobeyed God? According to Qur'aan, he was from the Jinns, a creation before man.

According to Qur'aan, the angels never disobey God and do as they are told.

Fallen angel is a Christian innovation.

"The commentaries of the geonim, their responsa, the Talmud itself, both Babylonian and Jerusalem, the Sifra, Sifrei, and Tosefta; all of them require considerable study so that only a few individuals fully comprehend them. For this purpose I have intently studied all these works and put them together in plain language so that the entire Oral Law may be accessible to all" (intro to Mishneh Torah)

i wonder how much of the Sifra, Sifrei, and Tosefta have Frijoles learned that he now has a wide interpretation of his religion

We are called Jews. Everyone other than you and perhaps Alex calls us Jews. We call ourselves Jews.

Your private vocabulary only makes you look like a hater.

In this economy, I know the meaning of working for reduced fees because clients are wanting.
Thats not even the least of it. Getting people to actually pay is the other challenge. Though I have pretty lucky in that regard. But my colleagues are always complaining about this.

and even if you ignored the legal context (what is opinion vs what is mitzvot)

the fact is most Jews today do not waste anytime worrying or even thinking that nonJews are unworthy of going to heaven or not.

So yes, your view would be a very narrow interpretation.

Fallen angel is a Christian innovation.
The Quran, in many citations, portrays Satan or Iblis as an angel:

And (remember) when We said to the angels: "Prostrate yourselves before Adam." And they prostrated except Iblis (Satan), he refused and was proud and was one of the disbelievers (disobedient to Allah). S. 2:34

And (remember) when your Lord said to the angels: "I am going to create a man (Adam) from sounding clay of altered black smooth mud. So, when I have fashioned him completely and breathed into him (Adam) the soul which I created for him, then fall (you) down prostrating yourselves unto him." So, the angels prostrated themselves, all of them together. Except Iblis (Satan),- he refused to be among the prostrators. S. 15:28-31

And (remember) when We said to the angels: "Prostrate yourselves to Adam." They prostrated (all) except Iblis (Satan), who refused. S. 20:116

(Remember) when your Lord said to the angels: "Truly, I am going to create man from clay". So when I have fashioned him and breathed into him (his) soul created by Me, then you fall down prostrate to him." So the angels prostrated themselves, all of them: Except Iblis (Satan) he was proud and was one of the disbelievers. S. 38:71-74

The natural reading of the above texts is to see Satan as an angel who refused to obey Allahís order to worship Adam. The following passage brings out this point even more clearly:

And surely, We created you (your father Adam) and then gave you shape (the noble shape of a human being), then We told the angels, "Prostrate to Adam", and they prostrated, except Iblis (Satan), he refused to be of those who prostrate.(Allah) said: "What prevented you (O Iblis) that you did not prostrate, when I commanded you?" Iblis said: "I am better than him (Adam), You created me from fire, and him You created from clay." S. 7:11-12

Allah asks Iblis why he didnít obey his instruction to the angels to prostrate to Adam, which presupposes that he was one of the angels. The text does not say that Allah commanded some other group along with the angels to worship Adam, and therefore makes no sense for Allah to hold Iblis accountable for not obeying a command that was given to them if he wasnít an angel.
