Who Is Allah?

There are 256361 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?”

I know that Muslims aren't allowed to think, because this could lead to apostasy. It's just that it would be nice for a change to actually discuss questions about where Mohammad clearly GOT IT WRONG.

Muslims,

I would ask you to cite an instance or instances in the Tanakh or Injeel where "Satan" threw in some misunderstanding that was later corrected by that SAME prophet, or ANOTHER (excluding Mohammad, because he is himself compromised). Was Moses so afflicted? What about Isaiah? Jeremiah? Micah? Habakkuk? Jesus?

I want chapter(s) and verse(s), please

TURD,

Posting from a different IP ADDRESS won't win you any brownie points with Mohammad. He wants you to behead me because I have "hurt" his cause.

Are you up to the challenge?

You do realize that this thread appears on a number of Topix Forums. I see it on the Judaism Forum, as Frijoles probably does also. It is on the Pagan/Wiccan forum. It is on the Islamic Forum. Also the Islamic, General Science, Archeology, Anthropology, General Religion, and Catholic Forums. You probably see it on the last one.

Which holy Bible are you asking about?
The Jewish Bible or the Catholic Bible or the Protestant's Bible?
The Holy Spirit played out the Catholics and helped the Protestants to cut it down to 66 books.
Technically speaking Paul is correct. The term bible IS a Christian term, though it is so widespread in society that Jews often use it as well casually to refer to tanach. But technically speaking the Jewish term is tanach, or torah, or 5 books, etc etc.

Tanach is a contraction of Torah (5 books of Moses), Neviim (prophets), and Ketuvim(writings).

My question to him regarding which Holy Bible he meant was intended to be rhetorical.

What differnce does that make what fourn you are posting from; we are talking about allah. Oh, you are talking about the pagan moon god of the pre-islamic arabs. Well that is the same allah of mohammad. Oh, you are talking about the Allah that Christians use for the Name of God in arab countries. But the muslims in those countries don't want Christians to use the name allah.

On this thread I am discussing the islamic moon god allah. Now if your not discussing the allah of islam be specific who/what your are referring to.

The Satanic Verses in Qur'an

Sura an-Najm (Star) 53:19-22
Now tell me about Al-Lat, Al-Uzza, and Manat,
The third one, another goddess.
What! For you the males and for him the females!
That indeed is an unfair division.
Looking at the "accolades" you have received from the silent majority of intelligent international readers, I must say you have been rated sooooo well that even Satan would envy you.

The pagan Arabs preferred to have sons for themselves and assigned three daughters to God. They used to bury infant girls in sand. In those verses God is mocking them. It is sarcasm at its best.

Imagine that you are a pagan Arab and you say that Laat, Uzza and Manaat are the daughters of God and they are the mediators between men and God. So, you are being ridiculed through those verses and are being asked, "You choose sons for yourself and assign daughters to God? And you are also told that those names are simply fabrications.

Any idiot, buffoon and even an ignorant fool can read and get the message. Why can't you, mischievous clueless fool ?

The pagan Arabs gave three daughters to God but the pagan-led Christians gave a son to God, because they were male chauvinistic pigs.

The verses do not say that God has three daughters, BirdBrain!

How come Christians like you can read and understand the Satanic junk and stuff in the New Testament and yet fail to understand a simple translation of Qur'aan in English?

Ok.

Yes, the word Bible is a Christian term. All the terms in Christianity came through the non-scriptural language Greek.

I used it in a sarcastic way.

Haven't seen a polemic Christian doing that to us yet, but the day is not far, when one would write here and ask about the "Muslim Bible". ;)

The pagan Arabs never worshipped sun, stars and moon. They worshipped idols made of wood, stones, feathers, etc.

This moongod theory was initiated by a hardcore Christian polemicist "dr" Robert Morey, an idiot in the US. Even Western scholars blasted the fool. This man does not even have a Ph. D.

I think he should spend more time writing about his silly moangod and mangod of Christianity.

Now, why would Allah allow that a prophet should speak damned lies one day, and then the UNVARNISHED truth the next day?
IOW, why would Allah deliberately CONFUSE us?

1 Corinthians 14:33 For God is not the author of confusion, but of peace, as in all churches of the saints.

IOW, Muslims, your "prophet" was trying to cover his own accomodating ass, and he didn't mind throwing every other prophet of God under the bus in the process, which makes him a coward, AT LEAST.
Of course Allah does not confuse. Confusion is created by men.

When Jesus was gone, talks were going in the markets and on the streets mostly about the man, and God was left behind. The man became an obsession and that is how stories spread.

Telling stories and tales about Jesus was rampant. This was the prelude to massive confusion that led the Bishops fight for two centuries, till the Roman emperor screwed and fixed them up.

Thanks for bringing up the line from Paul. Wouldn't call it a verse. One can see what a massive confusion was there in those days.

In other words, Paul, the self-loathing sinner and liar, was trying to clear that the massive confusion in all the churches, was created by men, who were not preaching God but were preaching the man Jesus in their own ways.

Paul was not only covering his own arse but he was trying to cover the arses of his cahoots also.

Wrong again.

In fact, the Christians are not allowed to think at all. It has been going on for so long that the Christians have stopped thinking.

Those, who could think, started to join Lollards. Have you ever heard about them?

And credit goes to Lollards for exposing Christianity and her silly doctrines and other absurdities.

Read some great articles by various men of intellect, whose material was kept banned and started to come out in the early 19th Century.

This thread is about allah; I am assuming it's the allah of islam. That being the case we must verify the source of this god as found in the koran. Now, is the koran of divine or human origin? I've posted many post showing the koran is not of divine origin but of very human origin.

I wonder why they are hated.
U Christians do have a different opinion about god= trinity = the dragon , the serpent, the wrestler, the barber , the satan and etc. Hinduism in a different name Christian.

<quoted text>Dr. Barnabas,
Your favorite "Gospel" is a proven fraud, not that you care, because you are both arrogant and intellectually dishonest.
All the four "Gospels" are proven to be fraud likewise. No one dare say that Matthew wrote the Bible that goes today by his name. Same can be said about Gospels of Mark, Luke and John.

The name on the title page is just for reference.

I did not see you not using these fake books as "Authentic scripture" why should you balk at GOB?

That shows your double standards.

First you said it was written by a Muslim, then it was changed to a Christian who became Muslim. Now some one will say, he was neither a Muslim nor a Christian, but a cross between two.

Every expert has his own individual theory on this. But no expert will ever hit the truth, that is another quality of these so called "experts".

You also belong to the same category of "experts" !!

A strange case of Unanimity:

Have you people observed? I have seen recently a strange case of unanimity amongst the various religious groups populating our planet at this time.

Let me elaborate a little:

A. Jews:

They say, we have some "problems" with our scriptures, we are not very sure who actually wrote these books, and we have some problems with practicalability of some of our practices and rituals in current times……

But one thing about which we are 100 % sure is that Quran is false and Your Prophet is a false Prophet.

B. Christians:

They say "While we are not sure who actually wrote these Gospels and we are not sure how St. Paul got access to Jesus and there are so many sects and denominations in Christianity and we do not know "for sure" which one has "Holy Spirit" inside them and we are not "United on Homosexuality, Abortion, Divorce and a few other burning issues…..

But one thing about which we are 100 % sure is that Quran is false and Your Prophet is a false Prophet.

C. Hindus:

They say "We have "some problems" on how to define who is Hindu, and we have no central belief system or single scripture, we have so many denominations that we cannot keep track on them, and we just try to pose a united face to outside world….

But one thing about which we are 100 % sure is that Quran is false and Your Prophet is a false Prophet.

D. Buddhists:

They say "While we are not sure what were the "original teachings" of Lord Buddha and how they reached down to us and we do not know "who" started this practice of erecting the status of Lord Buddha and worship it, we do not have any code of law so to say…..

But one thing about which we are 100 % sure is that Quran is false and Your Prophet is a false Prophet.

E. Sikhs:

They say "We are not really sure that Guru Nanak brought a New religion and we do not have a complete code of law and our Guru Granth Sahib has contributions from many person, and we follow many Hindu laws and ceremonies and their code in our daily life….

But one thing about which we are 100 % sure is that Quran is false and Your Prophet is a false Prophet.

F. Modern Materialists:

They say "While we do not support any religious group and we have some reservations about every religion, we see some good things in almost every religion (with the exception of only one religion)…. And we can see the utility of these religions in distant past……

But one thing about which we are 100 % sure is that Quran is false and Your Prophet is a false Prophet.

G. Atheists:

They say "All these religions are man made and served needs to some vested interests in their times, they might have saved some societies from disintegration in times gone by……we think most of these religions have served their purpose and have nothing to offer in our times….

But one thing about which we are 100 % sure is that Quran is false and Your Prophet is a false Prophet.

(Contd.)
