Who Is Allah?

There are 256493 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?”

Sahih Muslim Book 041, Number 6985:

Abu Huraira reported Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him) as saying: The last hour would not come unless the Muslims will fight against the Jews and the Muslims would kill them until the Jews would hide themselves behind a stone or a tree and a stone or a tree would say: Muslim, or the servant of Allah, there is a Jew behind me; come and kill him; but the tree Gharqad would not say, for it is the tree of the Jews.

This can only mean that the Gharqad tree is kosher!

Only behind the gharqad tree, which we know as the boxthorn, will Jews be safe.(Israeli prime minister Binyamin Netanyahu was once photographed planting a boxthorn.)

Qur'an Chapter 8, Verse 12:

When your Lord revealed to the angels: "I am with you, therefore make firm those who believe. I will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve. Therefore strike off their heads and strike off every fingertip of them."
__________
Umm...it appears to me that the order to strike off their heads and every fingertip of them was only given to the ANGELS, which begs the question as to why Mohammad thought he had any right to behead or de-fingertip anyone at all, but then, he was always taking matters into his own hands, and getting away with it...

Bernard Lewis on Islam's inherent totalitarianism

Excerpt:

...Quite obviously, the Ulama of Islam are very different from the Communist Party. Nevertheless, on closer examination, we find certain uncomfortable resemblances. Both groups profess a totalitarian doctrine, with complete and final answers to all questions on heaven and earth; the answers are different in every respect, alike only in their finality and completeness, and in the contrast they offer with the eternal questioning of Western man. Both groups offer to their members and followers the agreeable sensation of belonging to a community of believers, who are always right, as against an outer world of unbelievers, who are always wrong. Both offer an exhilarating feeling of mission, of purpose, of being engaged in a collective adventure to accelerate the historically inevitable victory of the true faith over the infidel evil-doers. The traditional Islamic division of the world into the House of Islam and the House of War, two necessarily opposed groups, of which- the first has the collective obligation of perpetual struggle against the second, also has obvious parallels in the Communist view of world affairs. There again, the content of belief is utterly different, but the aggressive fanaticism of the believer is the same. The humorist who summed up the Communist creed as "There is no God and Karl Marx is his Prophet!" was laying his finger on a real affinity. The call to a Communist Jihad, a Holy War for the faith -- a new faith, but against the self-same Western Christian enemy -- might well strike a responsive note.

God created man to have a relationship with us made in His image.
We were not created to be robots.
What God created was good.
The nature of God is Holy and pure and good, no sin found in Him.
Adam and Eve were created by God to be Holy and pure and good like God with out sin, and with a free will to obey God, as all of the angels were created by God to be Holy and pure and good.
There was harmony among God and His created creatures in heaven
But out of jealousy and greed Satan brought sin into the world and caused the Holy and pure and good nature of man to fall into sin.
In order to restore the harmony God enjoyed with his created angels God cast Satan and those angels that followed Satan out of heaven, and Adam and Eve were cast out of the Garden of Eden.
Satan and the fallen angels were aware of Gods law and the consequence of disobedience to God, and their sin against God is unforgivable as well as Adam and Eve's sin against God is unforgivable.
The difference between the angels and Adam and Eve is that when God conferred on Adam, the father of the human race the gifts of sanctifying grace, integrity, and immortality, Adam did not receive them as purely personal gift as was given to the angels as a personal gift, but as a race gift.
In other words Adam received a legacy which was to be passed down to all his descendants.
Therefore as far as God was concerned, every descendant of Adam, should at birth, possess this legacy of sanctifying grace, integrity, and immortality.
However, Adam by his defection lost not only to himself but to every other human being this legacy, so that all of Adams descendants are born without sanctifying grace and the other two gifts of integrity and immortality, which were dependent on sanctifying grace.
Which means because of the gifts God gave to the angels were personal gifts, the angels gifts from God could not be given back to them when they disobeyed God.
Judgment was passed on to them the fires of hell to be carried out at the last judgment.
And since Adams gift was a legacy gift to be passed down to his descendants, meaning us we received the death penalty for sin the same as Adam and Eve received from God.
But as Scripture says in:
John 3:16-18
New International Version (NIV)
16 For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. 17 For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him. 18 Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because they have not believed in the name of God’s one and only Son.
Jesus died on the cross in place of us for the death penalty for sin.

"Behold, you are with child, and shall bear a son; you shall call his name Ishmael; because The Lord has given heed to your affliction. He shall be a wild ass of a man, his hand against every man and every man's hand against him; and he shall dwell over against all his kinsmen." (Genesis 16:11-12 RSV).
ISHMAEL is the Father of the Arab Race.

Ge 27:41
And Esau hated Jacob because of the blessing wherewith his father blessed him: and Esau said in his heart, The days of mourning for my father are at hand; then will I slay my brother Jacob.


Ge 27:42
And these words of Esau her elder son were told to Rebekah: and she sent and called Jacob her younger son, and said unto him, Behold, thy brother Esau, as touching thee, doth comfort himself, purposing to kill thee. Re: Gen 37:4,8 Gen 50:3,4,10 Obadiah 1:10 For thy violence against thy brother Jacob shame shall cover thee, and thou shalt be cut off for ever.

As it is written,“Jacob I loved, but Esau I hated.” Esau sold his birthright to Jacob for one meal. Not even realizing what he was doing.
-Jacob received the Blessing. Jacob's 12 sons were the fathers of the 12 tribes of Israel.

God changed Jacob's name to Israel ...the Father of the Jewish people.

Here we can see that "Birds of a Feather Flock Together"
Ge 28:9
Then went Esau unto Ishmael, and took unto the wives which he had Mahalath the daughter of Ishmael -Abraham's son, the sister of Nebajoth, to be his wife.

So the Ishmael/Esau descendants went and made up their own Religion/Cult
Because they weren't included in God's Covenant. The Covenant that all nations would be blessed through Abraham's seed.-Issac, Jacob's father.

You might have read a translation of Qur'aan but don't tell us you understand it.
It is Qur'aan that says he was mentioned in the past scriptures. And many Muslims do try to find him in the Jewish Scriptures and the Christian Bible. I advise Muslims not to look for him in the NT. Even the true Jesus is not there in the NT. The Jesus of the NT is a stolen character, introduced in the books written after the 4th Century.
Personally, I do not look for Jesus in the New Testament, which was not a revelation given to Jesus by God.
However, I do believe that Deut 18:18 talks about Muhammad. Jesus does not fit the bill in Deut 18:18.
My whole post was about Muhammad and Deut 18:15-18, and I have no idea why you have to bring Christianity and Yeshua on it. You are too obsessed with them. I suggest to you to see a good psychoanalyst.

Honestly, while you rightly advise your fellow Muslims to not look at the Gospel to find Muhammad there, going against the Quran, advise them also that they won't find Muhammad in Deut 18:15-18

Where was Jesus' God when he was crucified? your argument makes no sense. There is only one God, not three. That is basic theology. At least Muslims are monotheistic and don't serve idols, which is more than Christians can say. "You shall have no other gods before me. You shall not make any graven image or any likeness of anything..." But of course you're too deaf and blind to understand that you don't keep the first two commandments.

Teachings of Paul Part-0 Introduction (By MUQ)

Every one knows that St. Paul has a pivotal role in the development of Early Christianity. No one else was as influential as he in formulating the Dogmas of New Religion as he. It is amazing how the billions of Christians accept so many of his claims without raising any questions or doubts about his authority.

Paul the Apostle of Paul for Gentiles has been accepted as "De facto" standard by Christians. No one question, whether he really did receive any directions from Jesus or not. So many people think that what Paul is teaching is really what Jesus is teaching. They might not be same.

And the "excuse" that Paul is Jesus's Apostle to Gentiles is very thin. Why should Jesus' teachings to Jews and Non Jews be so different from each other? Why there were two different religions needed so different from each other? And why Jesus himself did not choose "One Gentile Disciples when he chose those twelve disciples"? Already he picked one who became Traitor in the end.

These are the questions we might never get a proper or satisfying reply.

But what about teachings of St. Paul ?

If he was an apostle of Jesus, he should repeat or duplicate what Jesus spoke or taught? But when we go thru the letters of St. Paul as included in the NT, we find that there are almost Zero quotations of Jesus coming from the lips of "This Apostle of Jesus"!! Is it not strange?

And very seldom in his letters he said "These are the things which Jesus said to me in a dream or vision". He just keeps on saying things and putting dogmas, as if there is no restriction on him of any kind. One is amazed at the "free hand" which Jesus gave to This Super Apostle. No one else of his twelve disciples had this "luxury".

It is only John who has taken somewhat similar freedom by putting "his own words" in the mouth of Jesus. But St. Paul has gone one step further. He gives rulings and makes laws as if "He was a Prophet and not an Apostle".

Recently I studied letters of St. Paul and took notes while I was reading and then arranged them topic wise and here I present those notes. It is amazing what I found. And I want to share with you the results. There are short comments from my side on each of the statements made by St. Paul.

I leave it to the people to decide, if St. Paul is really spreading the teachings and message of Jesus or just presenting his own theories and his own ideas and superimposing these on the personality of Jesus, PBUH.

Teachings of Paul Part-1

1. Subject Matter: Abraham

Gal. 3- 1-10

What Paul Wrote?)

"You foolish Galatians! Who has bewitched you? Did you receive the spirit by observing the law or by believing in what you heard?.. Consider Abraham "He believed God and it was credited to him as righteousness… all those who rely on observing the law are under a curse"

Remarks (MUQ)

Misrepresenting Abraham, as if he did not do anything, just by faith he was justified

2. Subject Matter: Abraham

Gal. 3-16

What Paul Wrote?)

What God promised Abraham was for his descendent, for the scripture did not say that were many…..but this is for your descendent

Remarks (MUQ)

Very strange logic (but in the book of Gen. we always find the word descendents and not descendent). Here Paul is giving false notion that Abraham had only One Son.

3. Subject Matter: Abraham

Roman 4-1-13

What Paul Wrote?)

Abraham was justified only because of faith and not law

Remarks (MUQ)

How we know there was no law during Abraham’ time?

That is what the Day of Atonement is for, Eric. We make expiation for our sins once a year. The 10 commandments also called the Testimony, is forever valid, that's why it was written in stone. Repentance means remorse, confession, restitution, and most importantly, change. The righteous have hope in their death and if it wasn't for mercy, none of us would make it.

But there is no atonement available for the Jews.
There is no animal sacrifice anymore.
The temple was destroyed in 70AD.
And in Leviticus: without the shedding of blood there is no atonement for sin.
