Who Is Allah?

There are 256358 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?”

see how twisting you are.. how does this mean Quran says there is Goddess? or how does this mean BMZ believes in goddess existence?? his point is your belief is in goddess
BMZ means bible says god had child through a human lady. so you people made her goddess..
because you people believed human cant bear a god so you elevated her to god status.
you waiting for chance to blame him for what he didnt mean.
so now you tell me how mary became goddess..
The BV Mary is not a goddess. bmz said that god can only have a child by a goddess, so he must believe in goddesses; else his statement makes no sense. mohammad said there were three goddess in his koran and later took it out when he could not win over his enemy with saying this.

Scripture written by an apikores should be burned even with the Azkarot (God's name) in it.
(halacha in Mishneh Torah and Shulchan Aruch, from Talmud Gittin 45b)

Rashi: "apikores" is one who based his corrupt faith on the Torah (i.e. christians, who else?)

OT is not Holy Scripture to Jews

So you means you believe that there is only one god who was addressed by jesus in above verse...that means you also believe jesus is not god and also no spirit god exist????????..
There is only one God; Jesus is God, the Father is God and the Holy Spirit is God. Can't wrap your little mind around that can you? Christians, even Christian grade schoolers, can understand this. Maybe muslims have not evolved enough to understand this.

ISLAM: A POLYTHEISTIC RELIGION
Even though in Islam there is only one god, Allah it is strange that a certain person is somehow lifted at the same level of god. Let us see few examples taken from Quran.
4:80 "He who obeys the Messenger obeys Allah."
(That means that the will of Muhammad is the will of Allah) Muhammad being a human may order something foolish, but... never mind this is what Allah wants.
in an office you do as your immediate supervisor say and you report to your immediate supervisor only. if you just do as as your supervisor says its sufficient.. logic isnt it. does that mean you elevate your supervisor to your manager.

4:80 "He who obeys the Messenger obeys Allah." which means command from muhammed is the command from allah not Muhammed himself said on his own.

Whatever Nabi (S.A.W) uttered is "wahi" (Revelation). Surah 53:3-4 says that he does not speak of his own desire but it is a revelation sent to him. Therefore whatever speech Nabi (S.A.W) uttered in life and acted upon was revelation from God.

According to the Bible God said to Moses: "I will raise up for them a prophet like you from among their brothers; I will put my words in his mouth, and he will tell them everything I command him." (The Holy Bible, New International Version, Deuteronomy chapter 18, verse 18).

John 14:26
But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, he will teach you all things and bring to your remembrance all that I have said to you.

then your logic affects this verses of bible too

dont twist around. he answers "jesus IS" that god cannot have son without goddess.

he was saying god dont have son because there is no goddess exist..

Answer me this
how does that mean- BMZ who beleives in 1 god and no partner with god... is trying to say there is another goddess?your are just twister who tries find anything out of some thing else..

dont beat around bush ..its clear like crystal.. No other god except allah. thats what BMZ believes, i believe and we muslims believe, and Quran says nothing others than that. no goddess no son god , no spirit god , nothing god except allah.simple.

its not confusing like jesus is god , father is god, spirit is god but 1 god...

even jesus on his second return is not going to understand this....because he knows goad above heaven(1 god), but "jesus is god"

since when ...he didnt claimed god.and then the spirit. what?

i have a doubt does your so called spirit character have any major role in the story - BIBLE- written by Paul

Well said.
Paul has been told many lies by his church and he believes every one of them.
He cannot stop and think for himself!
When did Abraham or Isaac say they are linked to Paul?!!
Paul is so deluded that he removes Ishmael from his own father and puts himself forward as a "spiritual link"!
How stupid can one get?
Abraham and his nations are all linked to him by blood.
We may worship the GOD of Abraham/Noah/Adam but that does not mean we need approval from Abraham or Isaac or even Ishmael!!
Paul needs to get his brain re-programmed!
first fit one and then program....

How do you know what Muhammad ordered came from Allah? An important point is that you only know about Allah through Muhammad.
If Muhammad said something and people disagreed he can always recite that verse ( He who obeys the Messenger obeys Allah) and yet no one cant tell him nothing.

If Allah was real, it would be wise and beneficial to come in the open and tell to the entire community that Mu' is his prophet ect. The same goes for the other religions as well.

Something like that you can read in the bible. The logic displyed is childish. I may say or do something and they are uttered. That does not mean they come from god. The funny thing is only those that are uttered comes from god, meaning that if a prophet can't accomplish something, it was because he did it by himself. Nice excuse these prophets have to invent to not lose credibility.

Have you not read the words "among their brothers"? Who are they? The same people who promised the Promise Land), hence a prophet of god among the Quraysh is disqualified and unsupported by the Bible.

have you not read the words "send in my name", " Muhammad had nothing to do with Yeshua.

"He will teach you". That 'you' is referred to the disciples so this comforter have to be around them and live in their age, not 600 years later.

Even with NT Muhammad can not be the paraclito. Once again misquoted and unspported from the Bible.

Rabbee,
Please note that G-d is not a man. Image and likeness mean the qualities, knowledge and virtues.
It does not mean G-d has one head, two legs, two hands and other parts.
rabbee: you most likly do not know, what you are talking about. but G-D and Adam, are exact look alikes. an since Adam is a Duplication, of G-D in the flesh and Spirit. then G-D and the errant alleged as jesus, are identical in every way. and so therefore G-D also has Two Heads, Four Arms, Four Legs, and both TheMale and Female Charachteristics also. since Yeshooah is both He And She, They must have Both Male And Female Charachteristics at least Spiritually Noticable.

and you seemed to forget, i have actually seen G-D. and THEY BOTH do have a HEAD, ARMS, And LEGS. but is hard to notice, unless you look closely. and i even would not of noticed this, unless HER ARMS had not of seperated from TheHIS to hold me. as THE HE, spoke to me. But for the most part, at first look, G-D actually looks to be Dominatly MALE.

and i also think you miss out, on the scriptural definition of a Man. which is actually, TheUnion of a Male and His True Mate. according to scripture, a Man is not just a male. since the word Man is both male and female inclusively. and TheTerm Rabbee rabbee, indicates you are married. and Rabbee, rabbee, rabe means you are married with children. and TheTerm Rabeenoo, rabbee, rabe means you are married with children who have children, who have children.

THE COMFORTER

Since I am reading that some confused muslim think that the comforter is Mohammed, then I think is better to quote the source for a better understanding:

John 14:16-17
16 I shall ask the Father, and he will give you another Comforter to be with you for ever,

17 the Spirit of truth whom the world can never accept since it neither sees nor knows him; but you know him, because he is with you, he is in you

It seems evident from this lecture that this Comforter must be with them (apostles) for ever, and not to a group of illiteral pagan bedouins who live in the desert miles away from Israel, and that it can not be seen nor known to the world.

Was Mohammed with apostles or in the apostles? No he lived 6/7 centuries later. Was Mohammed invisible, and not known to the world? Neither since he was made of flesh.

John 15:26
When the Comforter comes, whom I shall send to you from the Father, the Spirit of truth who issues from the Father, he will be my witness

Was Mohammed witness of Jesus, or however, has he testified of Jesus? No he does not.

John 16:7
Still, I am telling you the truth: it is for your own good that I am going, because unless I go, the Comforter will not come to you; but if I go, I will send him to you.

Here instead Jesus is clearly saying that if he does not go, then the Comforter won't come. That relation indicates that the Comforter has to come SHORTLY after Jesus, and not 6 or 7 centuries after him.

Conclusion: The Comforter is in no way Mohammed, so muslim stop being more delusional than usual. Your Quran has lied to you, you don't find any support from the Bible.

Let's make a start with a funny one from John...
god the father=god the holy ghost=god the son=the word=jesus
John 1:1.....

DEUT 18:18

I will give them a prophet from among themselves, like you, and I will put my words in his mouth, and he will say to them whatever I give him orders to say.

If one looks at the Torah, in particular way to the from the exodus from Egypt to the Promise Land, it's clear that god has made a promise with the people that Moses led out the land of pharaohes

So when one read Duet 18:18 " I will give to them", how the hell a Muslims can think it was refer to Muhammad? Was that 'them' meant the Quraysh, a tribe that at 2000 years ago neither existed? LOL

Quran 7:174
Those who follow the Messenger, the unlettered prophet, whom they find written in what they have of the Torah and the Gospel.

I have proved Muhammad was not wfound nowhere in the Gospel or Torah.

I wonder who disillusioned Muhammad and ill-informed the all knowing and wise Allah?
