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?”

The Buraq was also said to transport Abraham (Ibrahim) when he visited his wife Hagar and son Ishmael. According to tradition, Abraham lived with one wife in Syria, but the Buraq would transport him in the morning to Mecca to see his family there, and take him back in the evening to his Syrian wife.

Hello HughBe.
Your posts are full of wisdom and sadly wasted on an uneducated non-gentile like bu(utteredbuttturdlick)ford.
He poses as a "Christian" but refuses to understand the explanatiuons given in Christian circles about "light" and "fire".
All in all he is an utter waste of space on planet earth.
This ought to point him in a direction if he wants to defend his Christian credentials...

First, realize that light can exist without the sun. Candles, fires, flashlights, glowworms, car headlights, matches, and many other objects give off light without the sun. All that was needed for light to exist on the first day was a light source.

The sun and moon are light-givers, but they are not the only light-givers.

Light energy first

GOD ACTIVATED LIGHT ENERGY FIRST, then great masses of material were gathered together and set burning in complex chemical and nuclear reactions, and the sun and moon were CREATED TO SERVE AS LIGHT BEARERS, or light-givers, for the earth.

Dr. Henry Morris made an interesting point about this passage when he said that because God is light, dwelling in light (1 Timothy 6:16), He did not have to create light. But God did create darkness (Isaiah 45:7)“as the initial state of the unformed and uninhabited earth (Genesis 1:2).” He created the primeval darkness to form a division between day and night.
..........

Let bu(tteredbuttturdlick)ford challenge his own so called "christians" before challenging the Holy Quran.

As bu(butteredbuttturdlick)ford is uneducated he wouldn't know much physics..light in terms of particles waves or other...
Let him continue to assume that only fire "creates" light!

Prophet and Quran are light years ahead of this idiot...

HughBe--- Clearly you did NOT understand my post. In my post I said some will say that such is the case because you are not a FULL Jew.

I am NOT a FULL black in origin. I am mixed. In America where YOU live and in YOUR lifetime if a WHITE is known to have ONE drop of black blood they were regarded as black.

***

HughBe--- In your mind diet is a function of RACE and not culture. So then the blacks in France eat differently than the whites. In addition your BS amounts to ALL Jews eat the same way and to this I can GUARANTEE you that Jews in Jamaica eat like Jamaicans. Your BS means all Jews eat Kosher and that explains Frijoles EATING of shrimps etc.

***

HughBe--- Good relative to others, some will say. In terms of the brains thing it is plain to ALL that I am no match for your brilliance or that of Dr. Frijoles. The day that I discuss religion with the very BRIGHTEST of your rabbis in a PUBLIC forum their superiority shall be in greater evidence.
Are you f'ing stupid or what? What do you think the point of my post was? Let me chew it up and swallow it for you.

A stereotype tries to spread a trait across an entire group of people--whether the group is based upon race, creed, color, nationality, religion, gender, sexual orientation, culture, etc.

As you ably point out above when I showed you typical stereotypes of Blacks, you can't spread these traits. Stereotypes are just wrong, as I said at the end of my post.

Yes, food has nothing to do with race. THAT'S THE WHOLE POINT NUMB NUTS.

Yes, brains have nothing to do with race. THAT'S THE WHOLE POINT NUMB NUTS.

So, this "Jewish Nose" insult has nothing to do with anything either. It's a stereotype. It is just as wrong as any of the Black stereotypes that I cited.

Get it, stupid?

Yes, I do criticize the Greek language as a poor and unfit language for Scripture. That non-scriptural language is the mother of all problems of distortion, fraud, forgeries and edits in the Christian Bible.
You failed to prove your points, everytime.
bmz wrote:
<quoted text>Just answer what I asked. Here is my post again:
"Time to educate you:
A simple word like Ruach was turned into Ghost.
Have you ever heard of the word Ghost for Ruach in the English translations of Jewish Holy Scriptures by Jewish scholars?
This silly word Ghost came courtesy the scripturally poor language Greek. It was changed into Spirit only in the modern times. Perhaps, it was changed because the kids were getting scared.
Now, if you can, show me if the Jews have ever used the silly word Ghost for Ruach."
And show me where have the Jews used the word Ghost for Ruach. This is your assignment.
Actually I did answer to your silly points. In case you missed something, here it goes again:
"You cannot make a point only by affirming that a certain language is poor and unfit for a scripture, you need to back up your claims, and as far as I know all your examples are hilarious.

Take the last one, you are accusing Greek by using English language because they have translated ruach with ghost instead of spirit.

Lessons of the day:

In English language ghost means spirit:
http://dictionary.cambridge.org/dictionary/br ...

At the end of the day you are not that "well read" and "educated" as you claim to be.

Since you love to criticize Greek, let me break this down for you. The Hebraic word ruach, that can be used to mean spirit, literally means to breath or blow, while the Greeks translated that word with pneuma that can be used to mean spirit, but literally means breath, air of vital blow.

At this point anyone can figure out your brain is POOR and UNFIT for Greek language."

Finally confirmation.
But The calendar had issues, since the Meccan and Medinah calender differed. So frankly none knows exactly what happened when.
If Mutalib should be living round about 570 CE it's a bit strange that he is attested as being owned money -or the other way around-(verified and moslems will swear to it) in the library of a king that only started his rule in 812 CE in nowadays iraq.
One of the sources also states that he dug Zemzem(Zamzam).
I am talking old Islamic sources.
Reading Margoliouth. Who tries to distinguish fact from religious fiction.

Apropos the abused maid. Indonesia and other countires in that region, did vote the sharia in. At least now they might get an incling as to what it actually implies. Bondslavery with heaps of rape and abuse.

Al-EX the Phallocentric doesn't like me, most probably because I asked him if he had ever had sex with a woman, and secondly because I continually "mock" his "prophet" by recounting, from authoritative MUSLIM records, what the Spelunker of Mecca actually said and did, assuming that these records are at all trustworthy.

In the very moment that you diqualify Greek language as unfit and poor for a scripture, and claim arabic is not, you, as a muslim fanatic are elevating arabic over greek and other languages. The worst thing was that you failed miserably to prove that.

How do you know that god has not given any scripture in Greek? Back up your claim with proof, mr long tongue. Futhermore Didn't your god send messengers to all the nations? If it's true, isn't wise for Allah to have these revelations, sent to all nation, made written than oral, so they are preserved better? If Allah didn't then I'm starting to wondering about his omnipotence.

If you believe that your god has not made revelations in Greek because the language is unfit and poor, then we have to assume that your god is NOT almighty because the "limits" of Greek language does not allow him to make any revelation.

I am tired to speak from a Muslim viewpoint... in reality no god given any revelation to any whatsover arab.

Question to BMZ.
If NAAR means fire then why does NAHARA not have the meaning of The fires or something like The fiery?
As in a few pages back, nobody knowing what that latter word meant.

Hey buttboy, entertain me with you angel light and satan fire challenge!

You are the fake "christian".... have you forgotten loads of reference to fiery pit that is ready for YOU!!

Matt 5:22 "But I say to you that everyone who is angry with his brother shall be guilty before the court; and whoever shall say to his brother,'Raca,' shall be guilty before the supreme court; and whoever shall say,'You fool,' shall be guilty [enough to go] into the FIERY HELL.

Matt 5:29 "And if your right eye makes you stumble, tear it out, and throw it from you; for it is better for you that one of the parts of your body perish, than for your whole body to be thrown into HELL. 30 "And if your right hand makes you stumble, cut it off, and throw it from you; for it is better for you that one of the parts of your body perish, than for your whole body to go into HELL.

Matt 10:28 "And do not fear those who kill the body, but are unable to kill the soul; but rather fear Him who is able to destroy both soul and body in HELL.

Matt 18:8 "And if your hand or your foot causes you to stumble, cut it off and throw it from you; it is better for you to enter life crippled or lame, than having two hands or two feet, to be cast into the ETERNAL FIRE. 9 "And if your eye causes you to stumble, pluck it out, and throw it from you. It is better for you to enter life with one eye, than having two eyes, to be cast into the FIERY HELL.

Matt 23:15 "Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites, because you travel about on sea and land to make one proselyte; and when he becomes one, you make him twice as much a son of HELL as yourselves.

Matt 23:33 "You serpents, you brood of vipers, how shall you escape the sentence of HELL?

Mark 9:43 "And if your hand causes you to stumble, cut it off; it is better for you to enter life crippled, than having your two hands, to go into HELL, into THE UNQUENCHABLE FIRE,

Mark 9:45 "And if your foot causes you to stumble, cut it off; it is better for you to enter life lame, than having your two feet, to be CAST INTO HELL...47 "And if your eye causes you to stumble, cast it out; it is better for you to enter the kingdom of God with one eye, than having two eyes, to be CAST INTO HELL FIRE,

Luke 12:4 "And I say to you, My friends, do not be afraid of those who kill the body, and after that have no more that they can do. 5 "But I will warn you whom to fear: fear the One who after He has killed has authority to cast into HELL; yes, I tell you, fear Him!

James 3:6 And the tongue is a fire, the [very] world of iniquity; the tongue is set among our members as that which defiles the entire body, and sets on fire the course of [our] life, and is SET on FIRE by HELL.

HELL IS FIERY (Mt 5:22)

The FIRE is "ETERNAL" and it is "HELL". It is so bad that it would be better to cut off a part of your body to avoid going there.(Mt 5:29-30; 18:8-9; Mk 9:43-48) Does that sound like "the grave" to you?

HELL is FOR the SOUL as well as the BODY.(Mt 10:28)

Some people are sentenced to HELL (Mt 23:33)

They are then CAST INTO HELL.(Mk 9:45,47)

Those who only kill the body do not cast anyone into hell; they merely cast someone into their grave. Only the Lord has the authority to cast a person into HELL.(Luke 12:4)
