Who Is Allah?

There are 254914 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?”

<quoted text>That's a new one. I've never heard that one before. So Mary and Jesus hated each other. Adam is not the son of Mary or Eve, it's the other way around, Eve was Adams' daughter. It's actually very simple but you're making it very complicated. The righteous are righteous because of their actions not because of their faith and we will all be judged by our actions.

This is your own choice, why you blame destiny for it? Who is stopping you from accepting the truth?
It is your own "haughtiness" that is prompting you to say these things.
Hmmm...Jews believe in the One God, but they reject Mohammad as a false prophet, so they're going to Islamic hell when they die, right? I mean, tell the truth. Islam is ALL about submitting to Mohammad, isn't it.

Is it a proof or a circular argument? Moses says God talked to him and we must believe it?
Is that what you call as proof?
We are living in the world which God created as mentioned in Genesis, Is that what you call as proof?
Do you not understand what is proof?
You ignored the rest of the post.
Moses testimony includes God inter acting with man on earth.
With out the testimony of Moses we would not have had an actual history of God inter acting with man.

There are thousands and thousands of ancient writings about God prior to Moses, but noon of them revealed a Covenant made by God with man as Moses reveals Gods Covenants to us.

With out God walking and talking to Moses the history of God inter acting with man would not be known.

Moses testimony is proof that God had a living relationship with Moses.

Excerpts from the Gospel of Barnabas, Part-103
And the soldiers came before him, bowing down in mockery, saluting him as King of the Jews. And they held out their hands to receive gifts, such as new kings are accustomed to give; and receiving nothing they smote Judas, saying:'Now, how are you crowned, foolish king, if you will not pay your soldiers and servants?'*The chief priests with the scribes and Pharisees, seeing that Judas died not by the scourges, and fearing lest Pilate should set him at liberty, made a gift of money to the governor, who having received it gave Judas to the scribes and Pharisees as guilty to death. Whereupon they condemned two robbers with him to the death of the cross.
So they led him to Mount Calvary, where they used to hang malefactors, and there they crucified him naked;, for the greater ignominy.*Judas truly did nothing else but cry out:'God, why have you forsaken me, seeing the malefactor has escaped and I die unjustly?'*Truly I say that the voice, the face, and the person of Judas were so like to Jesus, that his disciples and believers entirely believed that he was Jesus; wherefore some departed from the doctrine of Jesus, believing that Jesus had been a false prophet, and that by art magic he had done the miracles which he did: for Jesus had said that he should not die till near the end of the world; for that at that time he should be taken away from the world.
But they that stood firm in the doctrine of Jesus were so encompassed with sorrow, seeing him die who was entirely like to Jesus, that they remembered not what Jesus had said. And so in company with the mother of Jesus they went to Mount Calvary, and were not only present at the death of Judas, weeping continually, but by means of Nicodemus and Joseph of Abarimathia; they obtained from the governor the body of Judas to bury it. Whereupon, they took him down from the cross with such weeping as assuredly no one would believe, and buried him in the new sepulcher of Joseph; having wrapped him up in an hundred pounds of precious ointments.
Note: This whole episode shows really what happened and what is the riddle of this Crucifixion. The riddle of Missing Judas Iscariot is explained clearly, which is so evident from the writings of Matthew and Luke. This might be the reason why this Gospel was banned in the first place- MUQ

So Allah condoned the murder of the innocent Judas and saved his lying prophet Jesus Christ According to the Muslims.

But what can be said about Jesus Christ appearing to his followers after his death?
I have left out all the junk and stuff in your post.

What can be said is this:

He was never dead, came out of hiding, moved in disguise and kept far away from public and officials in Jerusalem.

He did not appear. He went to see them.

No, the is not right. Either you have been misinformed or you are not well read.

Islam is ALL about submitting to God, no man.

A question: Did Jesus submit to God or did he rebel against God?

Susie,
Tell me where and what is Heaven?
I'm putting this question to you since I read your post on the aim of life and going to Heaven on the Messianic thread.
I already answered the question on heaven and hell but don't know where. Look for it.

Well, I'm glad a Christian finally admitted it ! Christianity is not monotheistic, they actually believe in three gods if you include the holy ghost. This proves Jesus is not the God of the OT. "Hear o Israel, the Lord is our God, the Lord is one"

The problem with your story is; That the Apostles saw Jesus after the resurrection of Jesus, and were instructed by Jesus to preach the Gospels to all nations.

The Messiah will be made a lamb for a sin offering. Isaiah 53:10. A lamb for a sin offering for the common people must be female. Leviticus 4:32. "But cursed be the deceiver, who hath in his flock a male and vows and sacrifices unto the Lord a corrupt thing..." Malachi 1:14

Hey rabbee, long time no post ! The resurrected child I was speaking of was in his former life, not his present one. In his present life, he heals deadly head wounds.

Satan is the god of this world and Christians are bent on everybody knowing it.
