Who Is Allah?

There are 256266 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?”

Allah Ta'ala is One. There is no one equal to Allah Ta'ala, either in being, qualities, actions, commands or names. Allah Ta'ala is "Waajibul Wujood", in other words, His Existence is compulsory. His destruction is impossible. Allah Ta'ala always was and always will be.
Allah Ta'ala is neither anyone's father, not is He anyone's son. Allah Ta'ala does not have a wife. Anyone who shows Allah Ta'ala to have a father or for Him to be anyone's son or to prove that Allah Ta'ala has a wife is a Kaafir (non-believer). If anyone thinks or imagines this to be possible, then that person he is misled and irreligious.
Allah Ta'ala is present and in existence. The term used to define this is "Hai". Everyone?s life and existence is in the control of Allah Ta'ala. He gives life and causes death to whomever He pleases.
It is also not necessary that everything in the power of Allah Ta'ala should come into existence even though it is possible for it to come into existence. An example of this is that if Allah Ta'ala wills, He may create a mountain made from solid gold, but there is no such mountain. However, if Allah Ta'ala wishes, then it will exist even though it does not exist at present.
The etiquette of eating food in Islam.
http://islamqa.info/en/ref/13348

In Islam there is an etiquette for eating, which is divided into categories:

1 – Etiquette before eating:

1 – Washing the hands before eating. The hands should be washed before eating, so that they may be clean when a person eats with them, and so that he will not be harmed by any dirt that may be on them.

2 – Part of the etiquette of eating is to ask about the food if you are a guest and you do not know what it is (i.e., what type of food it is), and you are not sure about what has been offered to you.

3 – Hastening to eat when food is brought by the host. Part of honouring one's guest is to hasten to offer him something, and part of the guest’s honouring the host is to hasten to accept his food and eat from it.

4 – Mentioning the name of Allaah before eating. It is obligatory to mention the name of Allaah before eating. What is meant by that is saying “Bismillaah (in the name of Allaah)” when starting to eat.

The verse is a forgery.
Actually, Jesus meant, "Very truly I tell you, no one can enter the kingdom of God unless they have a circumcised dick".
Typical Muslim rhetoric.
Useless and meaningless like the religion they follow with minds empty and hollow.

So are you calling out the free will?

Quran 6:39

... Whomever Allah wills - He leaves astray; and whomever He wills - He puts him on a straight path.

Quran 2:7 Allah has set a seal upon their hearts and upon their hearing, and over their vision is a veil. And for them is a great punishment.

Quran 10:100 And it is not for a soul to believe except by permission of Allah , and He will place defilement upon those who will not use reason.

Is this the Islamic concept of free will you were talking about? The last verse makes no sense because it says one believes only if Allah permits to, but then this god will punish those who doesn't.

In other words punishment is used as instrument to scare the unbelievers (that is the thing they have to REASON upon) and then if they are scared they will convert and convertion is masked as Allah's will/permission.
Ans.

01. Your understanding of Quranic reasoning is not correct. Every thing in this Universe is happening because Allah allows them to happen.

No murder, no rape , no kidnapping, no cheating and no corruption can occur in this entire Universe, unless Allah allows it to happen.

So can we blame Allah for causing all these crimes and why He does not stop them for happening?

If some one accuses Allah for not preventing these things, then his reasoning is faulty.

This is because Allah has given freedom to humans to do what they think and does not interfere in their affairs.

02. So these verses where Allah says He guides whom He wishes and set seal on certain people ….these are to console our prophet and other Muslim, as to why despite their best efforts most people are not accepting Islam.

03. Some people by "willfully" rejecting the message of truth again and again, loose the capability of ever listening to the truth. These are the people which are described as "people on which Allah has put a seal".

04. Now coming to your own example, who is "preventing you from accepting the message of Islam"?

The same message is preached to so many Non Muslims and many of then accepted it, but you "choose" to reject it and then on the last day you might try to "blame Allah" that He put a seal on your heart!!

A person with common sense will always reject Islam.
Those that accept Islam are blind, deaf, and dumb.
Those are they that have no knowledge of Scripture.
And have not a moral conscience of good and evil.
The unjustly killing of infidels is forbidden by God.

Proverbs 6:16-19
New International Version (NIV)

16 There are six things the Lord hates,
seven that are detestable to him:
17 haughty eyes,
a lying tongue,
hands that shed innocent blood,
18 a heart that devises wicked schemes,
feet that are quick to rush into evil,
19 a false witness who pours out lies
and a person who stirs up conflict in the community.

Islam was founded by Muhammad, history reveals Muhammad was a liar,rapist, robber, and murderer of which is detestable to God.

Any man with "common sense" would be more interested in Islamic concept of God rather than your "Three Headed Monsters" where Three co-equal, co-eternal and co-powerful Persons" enter and go out at Will!!

That shows that you have no "Common Sense".

I knew it all along, thanks for confirming it.

Here's some despicable forgery for you.

Uthman's reaction in 653 is recorded in the following:

"So 'Uthman sent a message to Hafsa saying, "Send us the manuscripts of the Qur'an so that we may compile the Qur'anic materials in perfect copies and return the manuscripts to you." Hafsa sent it to 'Uthman.'Uthman then ordered Zaid bin Thabit,'Abdullah bin AzZubair, Said bin Al-As and 'AbdurRahman bin Harith bin Hisham to rewrite the manuscripts in perfect copies.'Uthman said to the three Quraishi men, "In case you disagree with Zaid bin Thabit on any point in the Qur'an, then write it in the dialect of Quraish, the Qur'an was revealed in their tongue." They did so, and when they had written many copies,'Uthman returned the original manuscripts to Hafsa.'Uthman sent to every Muslim province one copy of what they had copied, and ordered that all the other Qur'anic materials, whether written in fragmentary manuscripts or whole copies, be burnt. Zayd bin Thabit added, "A Verse from Surat Ahzab was missed by me when we copied the Qur'an and I used to hear Allah's Apostle reciting it. So we searched for it and found it with Khuzaima bin Thabit Al-Ansari.(That Verse was):'Among the Believers are men who have been true in their covenant with Allah.'"[Quran 33:23][Bukhari Sahih al-Bukhari, 6:61:510]
When the task was finished &#703;Ut&#818;h&#8 18;m&#257;n kept one copy in Medina and sent others to K&#363;fa, Ba&#7779;ra, Damascus, and, according to some accounts, Mecca, and ordered that all other variant copies of the Qur'an to be destroyed. This was done everywhere except in K&#363;fa, where some scholars argue that, Ibn Mas&#703;&#363;d and his followers refused.[3] It is also important that the compilation of the Qur'an during the time of Caliph Abu Bakr which was inherited by Caliph Umar's daughter Hafsa (and a wife of prophet Muhammad) was not destroyed but was passed back to her. This would imply that the first compilation, during the time of Abu Bakr, was not at variation with the &#703;Ut&#818;h&#8 18;m&#257;nic compilation.

UTHMAN ORDERED ALL CONTRARY VERSIONS OF THE KORAN DESTROYED!
The koran is not the unaltered word of mad mo.
It is the version Uthman liked.

I used your own words to explain what you call embellishment to explain that no matter what Jesus said in Scripture they were the words of Jesus the Son of God.

Hello, uhuh

I forgot add a gem of a quote from Thomas Jefferson. Here it is:

""And the day will come when the mystical generation of Jesus, by the supreme being as his father in the womb of a virgin will be classed with the fable of the generation of Minerva in the brain of Jupiter.

But may we hope that the dawn of reason and freedom of thought in these United States will do away with this artificial scaffolding, and restore to us the primitive and genuine doctrines of this most venerated reformer of human errors."
