Who Is Allah?

There are 256040 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?”

LMAO!
You don't know how dumb you really are.
Actually, you are dumb and speechless because you were not able to refute anything. Try again!

Anyway, that Jesus is God, is Bull Shit! If you like, make it a Horse shit!

If one has love for God, one would honour the prophet. Nobody was honouring Jesus as God.
Honouring means respecting the person, obeying him and following him.

All Glory, Praise and Honour belongs only to God but not to any man!!!

God is Tri-une.
There is only one God.
There are three divine Persons in the Tri-unity. Our previous studies have demonstrated this beyond the threshold of proof.
4. Matthew 28:19: Therefore go and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit....
Three Persons, one name. Jesus commissioned His disciples to baptize with a view to the unity of the three divine Persons.
The Father, Son, and Holy Spirit define who God is.
Who told you that God is triune? Can you really name the ignorant fools, who said that. I don't see Jesus talking about that hoax!

How can three be only one God? The alleged three are living in an alleged Godhead.

Jesus is not the Father and not the Ghost. The Father is not Jesus and not the Ghost.

The Ghost is not the Father and not Jesus. Those three are distinct and co-equal persons.

The Christian God is only 33.3% in terms of percentage.

Jesus and the alleged Holy Spirit are also 33.3% each.

Total comes to 99.9% and this shows that these Gods do not amount exactly to 100% and there is a shortfall of 0.1%.

So, who is the 0.1% God? That is Mary, the Mother of God. Without her the Trinity does not sum up.

One of the problems with your above post is that God's name, written over 7,000 times in the Bible, is not Jesus. The Almighty God has a personal name and is not Jesus. It can be found at Psalm 83:18 in many Bibles. The holy spirit has been given no personal name. In fact, thinking about it, not much is written about personal description or 'who' the holy spirit is. But there is plenty written about the Father (life-giver) and the son.
It is God’s saving name:
Acts 4:12 Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.
It is the highest name:

Philippians 2:9 Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name: 10 That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; 11 And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
It is God’s powerful name:

Acts 5:10 Be it known unto you all, and to all the people of Israel, that by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom ye crucified, whom God raised from the dead, even by him doth this man stand here before you whole.

It is the name God wills to call over the Gentiles:
Acts 15:17 That the residue of men might seek after the Lord, and all the Gentiles, upon whom my name is called, saith the Lord, who doeth all these things.

I presented my scripture teachings to you many numerous times, and you cannot retain that information in your brain.

Why don't you read the truth about who wrote scripture in the Quran?
After the negative experiences which depressed Mohammed, Khadijah sent him to her cousin, Waraqa, to convince him that Mohammed was called to be a prophet of Allah.

Waraqa succeeded in his task and became responsible for most of the Qur’anic verses at the beginning.

Waraqa inserted Ebionite doctrines about Jesus in the Qur’an, stating that Jesus was a prophet, and that He was not crucified, but God made someone to resemble Jesus. That one was crucified because the crowd thought he was Jesus.

This doctrine was first initiated by Simon, the magician from Samaria, who later founded a heresy which took his name, Simonianism. In reality, Simon created the root for such doctrine, before it was developed by the Gnostics in later times. Here, I present Simon the magician’s idea about Jesus, which Hyppolytus reported in “The Refutation of all heresies”:

Jesus Christ being transformed, and being assimilated to the rulers and powers and angels, came for the restoration (of things). And so (it was that Jesus) appeared as man, when in reality he was not a man. And (so it was) that likewise he suffered, though not actually undergoing suffering, but appearing to the Jews to do so.[xxx][30]

The idea that the people crucified someone whom God made to resemble Jesus was embraced by some heresy-believing groups which were known to have immoral values, such as free sex and connections with occultism. Waraqa belonged to one of these cults.

For OVER !400 years Muslims gave been murdering Christians over that false scripture in the Quran.

Out of context, you can't pick and mix sections of the Quran you need to understand it and what it is referring to, for example 8:12

This verse and the verses before and after were revealed about the Battle of Badr, which occurred in Arabia in the early seventh century. A battle in which the pagans of Makkah traveled more than 200 miles to Madinah with an army of about 1000 to destroy Muslims. Prophet Muhammad peace be on him and fellow Muslims had suffered severe persecutions and torture for 13 years in the city of Makkah. And now that they had fled Makkah and found a sanctuary in the city of Madinah, they were once again threatened. The Muslim Army was only about 300 strong. God Almighty gave the order to Muslims to fight to defend their lives and faith. The enemy came to them with the intent to kill Muslims. It was a war to defend themselves and their Faith. It was a war imposed upon Muslims.

This Surah / section of the Quran is speaking about this as above

All that you have quoted are taken out of context of the exact meaning, you can't just take extracts like that you need to understand what it relates to as a whole ... What is written before and after

Really I wouldn't practise a religion which encouraged violence....

Stop being ignorant

In the case of Surah 8:55 all you had to do was the read the next verse!!!!!!Let us quote 8:55 in its context:

For the worst of beasts in the sight of Allah are those who reject Him. They will not believe.
They are those with whom thou didst make a covenant, but they break their covenant every time, and they have not the fear (of Allah).(8:55-56)

That is Surah 8:55 in its CONTEXT, all the critic had to do was literally read the next passage!!!!!!!According to the context, the worst of beasts that are being mentioned in verse 55 is referring to people who keep breaking their covenants with the Muslims!!!!!!Hence it is not an unrestricted label; rather the label is restricted on the people who are breaking their covenants with the Muslims! Basically the people who make an agreement with the Muslims, yet they constantly renegade, and turn back on those agreements.

And 3:56 is speaking about going to hell if you do not believe in god... And reject god

It isn't asking Muslims to incite violence... Bit confused there

Honestly it's easy to pick out sections and take them out of context

You know for an example if you studied English Literature, when you quote from a source you cannot ignore what comes before and what comes after what you have quoted, because the quotation can be taken out of context in regards to it's actual meaning

Many have failed English literature papers or dissertations by simply taking quotations out of context ... Same applies here

Why should I go and hide, Shamma? I am not Jesus, who went into hiding and vanished into oblivion.

Jesus himself never presented and never showed a triune God.

So, who did that? Who were those ignorant fools, who came up with the absurdity and monstrosity known as Trinity?

I have an excellent retention. I have not seen Jesus making any of the following statements:

1. I am the son of God.

2. I am God in person or I am God in flesh.

3. I am the Father.

4. I am God.

5. Your God is a Trinity.

For the first 450 years, nobody had heard of above nonsense. The Christianity that you follow and practice, started in the 6th Century.

And whatever you tell us is nothing but bull shit.
