Who Is Allah?

There are 255927 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?”

Muslim pagan Houris.

HOURIS
The Quran mentions 'houris' several times 44:50, 52:20, 55:60, 56:20, 78:33. Who or what are they? They are 'bashful virgins','fair as coral and ruby','dark eyed youths','high bosomed maidens (big breasted)'. In sum, they are creatures put in Paradise, primarily for men's sexual pleasures. Each man will have at least two of them.

This concept is derived from the Zoroastrian sources. In Zoroastrian writings they are referred to as 'Faries'- spirits in bright array and beautiful to captivate the heart of man. The name 'Houris' comes from a Pehlavi source, as does the Islamic 'Jinn' for Genie.

CONCLUSION
Is not difficult to see how Muhammad heard various sacred religious stories, and incorporated them into Islam. Perhaps he thought that parts of those religions contained truth, so he adopted what he thought to be correct. But nevertheless, part of the foundation of Islam is paganism.

I do not know, how death of one person can achieve this?
So many people die every day and so many innocent people are killed. Even prophets of God have been killed and hanged on false charges.
Why you have made the death of Jesus so mysterious? All this is false teachings of Paul, which have mesmerized most of Christians.
Get out of it and talk with reason and logic.
The reason Jesus' death procured our salvation, while no other man's death can, was because He is God. It was by Jesus' death and resurrection that we are saved.

So, you believe this failed savior's words?
Have you heard Jesus say so about himself or have you read about this claim in your NT? LOL.
Never believe without sound reasons and supporting proofs.
Many lunatics like Jesus and others have arisen in the history of the world who've declared themselves almighty, omniscient, infallible, omnipotent, invincible and absolute and all without an exception have be proven failures or outright frauds and none has done anything to dissolve the numerous problems facing humankind.
As I stated earlier, it hasn't been given to you to understand.

God has chosen certain people to whom he has given understanding
and to whom He has revealed the truth to.

These people are called the elect, they are going to spend eternity in God's Kingdom. The rest of humanity is condemned to spend eternity in hell.

I know you hate to hear this truth and you will try to wish it away. Sadly for you and all the rest who reject Jesus as their saviour, your all damned to spend eternity in hell.

I hope and pray that you would turn from your evil ways, and ask Jesus to be your personal saviour.

There is no other name under Heaven given by which we can be saved.

So, you have learned something new today and that is:

There is no "My Father, his Father, her Father, your Father , their Father and our Father" in the Jewish Holy Scriptures.

That is correct and that name is not Jesus. Since the LORD Almighty God said that there was no other God and Savior besides the LORD Almighty, Jesus gets thrown out from that post.

It seems very odd to me that Muhammad, the man who's central doctrine was the oneness of God, would include pagan worshippers as those who were believers in the true God. If Muhammad were truly a prophet, how could he have made such a big mistake? How did astral worshippers get included into the Quran as those that worship the true God? How could Muhammad's 'revelation' be in such error?

It is noteworthy that just as Muhammad incorporated the pagan veneration of the Kaba and black stone into Islam, so he incorporated the Sabean times of prayer, Eid, and fasting into Islam.
Could you please stop using the silly, absurd and idiotic word 'oneness", which was coined by the pagan Church?

Oneness of God is discussed by those, who do not believe there is only one God. Every damn silly and idiotic word in Christianity's pagan-infested theology is based on absurd doctrines.

Muslims and the Black Stone.
Muslims pagan worship.
THE BLACK STONE

The black stone played a prominent role in pagan worship. The pagans offered animal sacrifices there. But the idol of the black stone replaced the alter; on the black stone they smeared the blood of the sacrificed animals.
Actually, the black stone was the stone that the builders rejected. KMA, Shaman.

Who were the builders that rejected it and now what is it good for? Is one saved by kissing the black ston(s). Question: Is it one stone or several stones?

Do you have a copy of the original koran that tells the people to pray to the three goddesses; allah's daughters?

@ Shaman
There were hundreds of Jesuses and Marys back then. Can you stop spamming and littering the precious bandwidth, please?
We believe that Jesus existed and his mother was a holy, noble and a pure
woman, whom no man knew and she was a virgin, when she conceived Jesus.
No problem there.
We are not discussing through Talmud. The problem is that the gospels clearly show that the alleged crucifixion was a drama, a well-managed stage show, which was a joint production by Pilate and the San Hedrin. It allowed him to escape.
And Jesus went into hiding.
That Jesus did not come out in the open, clearly shows that he was never dead.
If you killed me and if I were resurrected, I would definitely go and present myself to you. I would not be running away from you then.
After the alleged resurrection, Jesus would have gone to Jerusalem to show himself up to his killers, instead of going to Galilee.
That he did not make a Triumphal Re-Entry into Jerusalem, already shows that the man was never dead.
It would have been better if he had remained dead and only then it could have been considered a great sacrifice.
rabbee: there was nobody, by the name jesus back then. nor could the name jesus possibly exist, for another thousand years. so everything you write or say about Him, is based on a lie in a world of liars.

Why couldn't JESUS, the failed saviour and fake messiah, attain to "physical immortality" on earth and live forever or as long as he pleased instead of disgracefully having to exit his body via an Out-of-Body experience so as to escape to the heavenly/supraphysical plane of his father? LOL.
rabbee: what makes you think, that your mental failure is my actual physical failure to be here again? and quit assuming, i am an out of body experience. as your failure to comprehend being here in TheTorah, is not my failure to comprehend it all.
