Who Is Allah?

There are 220886 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?”

So the "proof" has to come thru a "Link"? Will it?
Why are you shy to put those proofs are on pages so we all can see it.
Which Archeology "confirms" the truth of Bible? I think according to "real archeology"…. Moses and Jesus are "Mythical figures"!!
You are just clutching at straws, and so far you have not provided a "single proof" that God Spoke to Abraham or Moses.
You are using the "same source" (i.e. Bible) for making the claim and the same source as its proof.
This is what is called a "circular argument".
Speaking of a "circular argument,"

When you're not entertaining us with the fiction that is the "Gospel of Barnabas," you are using the "same source" (i.e. Qur'an) for making the claim and the same source as its proof, specifically, that Mohammad was a true prophet of Allah and not just a bloody con artist.

Eric---How can an organization that represents a fraction of the Jews be the largest organization in the world?
HughBe--- Lesson 1, for today, Sabbath evening. Taken individually ALL of the RELIGIOUS organizations of Judaism are FRACTIONS.
Lesson 2--- Collectively ALL of the sects of Judaism represent a FRACTION of the Jewish people. I thought that this much was self-evident. Simplifying NO sect of Judaism represents ALL of the Jewish people and must therefore be a FRACTION. In addition, almost 50% of the house of Israel are SECULAR.
Lesson 3--- The language is a challenge for you and so I shall not allow you to torture yourself. Let me explain what the writer means. First, it is my hope that you are aware that I am not the writer of the article.
Second, there is a difference between the largest MEMBERSHIP and the LARGEST organization which is what Chabad is. It is clear to me that the writer is looking at SIZE in terms of INSTITUTIONS etc.
Note, there are 3,600 Chabad Institutions worldwide. Get it?
Moreover, did you see that at approximately ONE MILLION persons attend Chabad services at least once a year?
In other words many many people are affiliated to the Chabab movement.
Let's see Hugh, 1 million supposedly attend at least one Luvibitcher service, 1.5 are members of URJ. Which one has more PEOPLE?

What is an institution? They put a family in a remote location and that's an institution to them.

Nope.

John 19:7 stands as the reason.

19:12 - nope
Luke 23:2 - PILATE LET HIM GO.
Luke 23:5 - His teaching OF WHAT?
uhuh wrote:
read again your "scripture" from the impostor John,
the Jews handed over Jesus to Pilate: "We have a law and by our law he ought to die because he made himself a son of God" (John 19:7)
no such law exists, every Jew can say he is a son of God
<quoted text>
so what was that particular crime?
was it because he said he is a son of God?
or because he made himself out to be a king?(John 19:12)
or because he forbade the people to give tribute to Caesar?(Luke 23:2)
or because he stirred up the people with his teaching?(Luke 23:5)

You are actually the one that needs to fill in those spaces with explanation of what Jesus was teaching and doing that made the JEWS (not romans) want to crucify him.

Excuses have been given and I've successfully refuted them.

It makes no sense for you to ask me for "various" reasons Jews killed the prophets. Because in the Old Testament the Jews were perpetually sliding back into polytheism and paganism.

That was not the case among the Jews in Jesus day

Why did BJ, at the ninth hour, shout in a loud voice,

"ELOI ELOI LAMA SABACHTHANI?"
..........
Now this is very interesting....

BJ the Jewish man allegedly came to die WILLINGLY for the sins the gentiles so that the gentiles can have eternal life!

Why did he cry as above then?

BJ was all reved up and ready to die as the first lamb that got nailed to a Roman cross without being properly slaughtered in the traditional style with his head being chopped off.

Why did he cry as above then?

1. Did God say to BJ "Simmer down boy...I know you are keen to die THIS MINUTE to save these losers....but..keep your hair down..I don't want you to die. I know my decision may be disappointing to you"?

2. Or was BJ in trouble begging God to help him get out of the mess?

Both explanations help Islam's claim?

By rejecting BJ as God we support Judaism!

There can only be ONE God and that God CANNOT be BJ.

Both Muslims and Jews claim that BJ is NOT God.

We both believe that we worship ONE God who is unlike the creation.

Please read what "buford" said and my response to him before jumping the gun.
Thank you.

Master Bait and Switcher,

At issue is circular MUSLIM logic, vis 'a vis, the Qur'an, but then, you never stay on point, not when you can seize the opportunity to attack your favorite whipping boy "BJ" in the "Who is Allah?" thread of the ISLAM Forum.

Hello master-baitor

You ought to learn from your own lies.

Why do you attack the Holy Prophet in the "Who is Allah" thread of ISLAM Forum?

We are talking here about God...since you are deluded enough to claim that BJ is god, we have to remind ou that BJ is NOT Allah, the God of everything created.

Have Christians ended up with second or even a third class tickets?

Why are Christians not allowed to go direct to God?

Why do they have to go through a naked mangod or even his mother?

Why are they treated as second class citizens having to contend with a naked mangod?

Those who go through the “mother” can be third class?

Does it mean that the Gentile Christians are inferior and not good enough to go direct to God?

The great..great..great. grandfather or affectionately known as “father” of BJ the Christian mangod.

Who is Joseph?
The carpenter who made a load of cash to become Joseph of Arimathea who used the tomb to hide his son?
