Who Is Allah?

There are 230949 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?”

Keep preaching it Buford:
2 Corinthians 13:1 In the mouth of two or three witnesses shall every word be established.
Moham-mad aka MadMo has no other prophet to back up his lying words. Therefore his words, according to Moses (Deuteronomy 17:6 and 2 Corith 13:1) can't be established. But every biblical prophet, is backed up by every other biblical prophet. So their words can be trusted. But Mohammads has no witness.

If the Koran was admitted as evidence in a court of Law the Judge(God) would throw it out as Heresay. Because there is no one to support these Koranic allegations. NO WITNESSES. CASE DISMISSED, We the jury find in favour of the Bible. AT LEAST THEY HAD WITNESSES(PROPHETS)

Ps. Don't try and claim our witnesses as yours, for you have already slandered their characters before the Judge by calling them false and corrupted, so you have no witnesses(Prophets)

Sentence given: Hell. The Rich man finds himsef in hell and Jesus tells the story, of how the Rich man begs Abraham to warn his family that Hell is real. But:
Abraham saith unto him, They have Moses and the prophets; let them hear them. And he said, Nay, father Abraham: but if one went unto them from the dead(like Jesus), they will repent. And he said unto him, If they hear not Moses and the prophets, neither will they be persuaded, though one rose from the dead(like Jesus)." (Luke 16:29-31

Why don't YOU try your hand at it and write a "Newer Version" of Quran that beats the "old models".
That is WHAT this Quranic challenge is all about!!
Do not just stand on the road and pass useless comment, get active and order lots and lots of pens and ink and loads of papers!!
How much time it would take to pen down some thing as simple as Chapter 112 of Quran? A very short four verses....Try your hand at it and come up with some thing better!!
This short chapter, demolished the concept of Trinity, God's Son and God in flesh, and God taking Avatars and every other misconception and similes that any one can have about God.... can any human had do it?
Try and come with something snappier and better!!
You must not think much of the koran if you think I can do a better job at writing it. According to the koran a human being begins as a clot of blood, while scientific evidence shows that blood is not formed till the second week after conception. Looks like the koran is a big fail.

Every Church sings praises to Jesus Giving him those very Titles, so to say that he is never called by those names is ridiculous.
Even though, I am a Muslim, I have attended Church services. Besides 'Our Lord Christ and Son of God", I have not heard him being called the Wonderful Counsellor or the mighty God or the eternal Father.

May I ask why are you propagating this lie?

If Jesus is the mighty God or the eternal Father, then you do not need the silly and absurd Son of God and the ridiculous triune God.

An angel speaking is not allah speaking. The angel could have been a demon.

On the night of the mihraj did allah ask mohammad to pray with him? Who did allah pray to?

He did not. He did not tell the Jews, "I am God". If he had doen that, he would have been killed right there on the spot.

All he had to do was to say, "Listen, Israel! I am God" and immediately disappear. He was good at hiding. Right?

Angels may be demons in Christianity but in Islam and Judaism, Angels are not.

When and where did Allah ask Muhammad to pray with Allah?

proof bluffer ???????proof????
this is not bible to rewrite and release in version.
Its documented history. Excerpt from link bleow: "The present form of the Quran text is accepted by most scholars as the original version compiled by Abu Bakr."

The koran has undergone many changes and the present one is only the one "accepted by most scholars" not all.

Qur'aan is not a text book of Science.

God discusses and reasons with man. It is something like, "Let us reason".

In your Bible, men are doing the talking and telling stories.

The message is: Think hard what were you. You were not even a thing before you were created.
Look at your own creation and see through what have been.

And you have the audacity to talk against God?

For example what was Jesus? A sticky zygote that grew like a tadpole and became a sticky fetus, which grew surrounded by Amniotic fluid, not angels, in his mother's womb.

This is the problem with Christianity and Christians. They keep on lying.

Where and when did he say, "I am God!"?

Forget God but tell me why do you lie against the poor man Jesus?

From now on, you should write "Our God Jesus" instead of "Our Lord Jesus". By doing so, you will not need this thing called the Son of God.

Even the self-loathing sinner and liar Paul does not agree with modern Christianity.

He used to write this way: "Grace and peace to you from God our Father and from the Lord Jesus Christ."

Paul did not write: "Grace and peace to you from God our Father and Lord Jesus Christ."

Lies upon lies and nothing ut lies, Paul.

You look at the Hadiths to understand what Quran is talking about.
Let's pick up one of the five pillars. The hajj. Give us references from Quran explains how to perform it.
No, ignorant fool! Muslims do not even read Hadith. Polemicists read them more.

I had told you that Hadith came up centuries after the Prophet had passed away.

Muslims do not follow Hadith or live by Hadith. They follow Qur'aan and Sunnah! Sunnah means the way of the Prophet. He did the Hajj and people followed the way that he performed it. So, Sunnah was passed through generations.

Thus it is extremely foolish of you to say that for 500 years, Muslims did not know how to do Hajj?

Humour me more, please!

Jesus has been given the right to call himself "The Father". One of the Apostles asked Jesus: "Show us the Father". The
answer of Jesus demonstrates that he has the right to be the
very Father for those who believe in him; 9 Jesus saith unto him, Have I been so long time with you, and
yet hast thou not known me, Philip? He that hath seen me
hath seen the Father; and how sayest thou then, Shew us the
Father? 10 Believest thou not that I am in the Father, and the Father in
me? The words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself:
but the Father that dwelleth in me, he doeth the works. 11 Believe me that I am in the Father, and the Father in me
(John 14:9-11) By such a statement it is not implied that Jesus and God the
Father are but different manifestations of one and the
same being! In fact, such a doctrine is not only incomprehensible, it is also false and excluded as a possibility
by the words of Jesus himself; 30 I can of mine own self do nothing: as I hear, I judge: and my
judgment is just; because I seek not mine own will, but the will
of the Father which hath sent me. 31 If I bear witness of myself, my witness is not true.(John 5:30-31) Listen to one witness of Jesus: 17 And lo a voice from heaven, saying, This is my beloved Son,
in whom I am well pleased.(Mathew 3:17) If, contrary to my testimony, the Father and the Son are
different manifestations of one and the same being, then the
Father, with the voice from heaven bore witness of himself,
and it would therefore be a false testimony, according to Jesus'
words quoted above (John 5:31). And how many times did not
Jesus bear witness of his Father! Were these false witnesses? I will make them true before your very eyes by stating the
simple fact that God the Father and Jesus are two separate and
distinct individuals. When they testify of each other their
witness is true and holy!
