Who Is Allah?

“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?”

I am not defending the belief system of Islam, I am defending their right to believe what they want as long as it doesnt infringe on me. In real life I get along with all peoples, but I dont get the sense others here do the same.
I am also stating its not my role to evaluate the logical consistency of another religion.
Though sometimes I do that here if pushed - as in the case of THUNK/THINK/SEPTIC/SKEPTIC/SHA MMA who I find just so dumb that at times that a little push back is in order. I have done the same to the occasional Muslim poster here as well. But mainly my criticism at that point is more along the lines that people in glass houses shouldnt throw stones....
You are confused Frijolie.
You won't take responsibility of your own words.
You defend Islams false notion that it has a right to murder non-Muslims that reject their religion of Islam.

Every one has a right to worship as they please, but you make an exception for Muslims defending their false right to murder those that reject Islam.

You do not make that distinction.

But Muhammad since childhood tripped with his uncle in different places, and let's not forget that Waraqa was a Christian and maybe a priest from Makkah, and he was the one who told to Muhammad that the angel that supposedly visited him is Gabriel.
Anyway keep lying.
It's interesting, although Muslims seem to consistently be the stupidest people on the planet, they can at least be honest about regular things in life. I can trust a Muslim not to steal. But as soon as religion comes up, they turn into the biggest liars on the planet, and they consistently do this. Between the lying and outright stupidity, rational conversation becomes impossible with them.

I can't figure out exactly what it is about Islam that makes them so stupid and dishonest, but there is a definite pattern. Maybe they are just following Muhammad's example, and it's his fault, not theirs. That's all that I can figure.

Would you mind terrible if I ask you WTF this has to do with the topic? Seems like we always see your "unconscious" mind rather than your "conscious" one. I'm surprised that your unconscious or non existent mind knows how to type.

GABRIEL, WARAQA & MUHAMMAD:

This so-called angel who supposedly appeared to Muhammad never claimed to be Gabriel! This came later on. His uncle Waraqa said it was Gabriel, not Muhammad. Why didn't Gabriel mention his name to Muhammad? Again, how come Gabriel told Muhammad to read when he was illiterate? Waraqa, a so-called Christian, is wrong too, because Gabriel never appeared to Moses. Even the Quran says that Allah appeared to Moses. LOL.

MUHAMMAD'S REVELATIONS ACCOMPANIED BY ADVERSE MANIFESTATIONS:

1) After a spell of shivering and shutting his eyes, there used to come over Muhammad what resembled a swoon, HIS MOUTH WOULD FOAM, AND HE WOULD ROAR LIKE A YOUNG CAMEL.

2) Umar ibnu'l Khattab says: "When inspiration descended on the Apostle of Allah, there used to be heard near his face as it were the buzzing of bees."

("Mizanu'l Haqq" by C.G. Pfander D.D., pp. 345-356)

COMMENTS: Signs of a malevolent (demonic) vital being (El or Allah) possessing Muhammad. The basis of Islam is evil. Same for Judaism.

You cannot judge people by Jesus' model.
To die and let the work unfinished might be great for individual level but there is no message for the public.
To stand for truth and fight evil and subdue it and establish the Kingdom of Heaven on earth is much more worthy that show a few miracles, give some good speeches and let yourself be killed like a petty criminal.
And then there is no ground work to protect your teaching as an "outsider" poses as Super Apostle and hijacks your entire teachings and replaces it with his own philosophy?
To subdue forces of evil and leave a truthful following of more than 100,000 followers that stick to your message is much harder job.
So there is no comparison between Jesus and our prophet. You are comparing an apple against an orange!!
PS:
What i wrote about jesus was just to counter your argument.
In Islam we are not allowed to pit one prophet against another.
Every prophet is equally honorable to us. Each one was given a specific mission and they fulfilled their mission to perfection.
Jesus was the Last Prophet from Isaac's lineage sent to jews. He was to deliver a Final Warning to jews and give Good News of approaching Kingdom of Heavens.
His life and his mission was short. God took him to heavens before his enemies could take him.
We revere and we respect jesus much more than you can even imagine. But he was not the last prophet of God and jesus himself testified to this many times during his short ministry.
I seek Allah's Pardon if I have inadvertently said anything which is not befitting the exalted position of jesus, a prophet of Islam
God placed His laws in the heart and mind of those that have faith in God.
Muhammad is not needed because Gods way is the best way.
God is Spirit and we must worship God in the Spirit of God.
Did Muhammad explain that to Muslims?
NO!

What is James Saying?

James is simply saying that if you ‘say' you are a Christian, then there had better be some appropriate works manifested or your faith is false. This sentiment is echoed in 1 John 2:4 which says, "If you say you have come to know Him, yet you do not keep His commandments, then the truth is not in you and you are a liar."

Apparently, there were people who were saying they were Christians, but were not manifesting any of the fruit of Christianity. Can this faith justify? Can the dead ‘faith' that someone has which produces no change in a person and no good works before men and God be a faith that justifies? Absolutely not. It is not merely enough to say you believe in Jesus. You must actually believe and trust in Him. If you actually do, then you will demonstrate that faith by a changed and godly life. If not, then your profession is of no more value than the same profession of demons: "We believe Jesus lived."

Notice that James actually quotes the same verse that Paul uses to support the teaching of justification by faith in Rom. 4:3. James 2:23 says, "and the Scripture was fulfilled which says,‘and Abraham believed God, and it was reckoned to him as righteousness.'" If James was trying to teach a contradictory doctrine of faith and works than the other New Testament writers, then he would not have used Abraham as an example.

Therefore, we are justified by faith. That is, we are made righteous in the eyes of God by faith as is amply demonstrated by Romans. However, that faith, if it is true, will result in deeds appropriate to salvation. After all, didn't God say in Eph. 2:8-10, "For by grace you have been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God; not as a result of works, that no one should boast. For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them."

Gabriel would make the first announcement to the Jews that the Messiah had arrived. Their conversation would be identified by a physical sign, mispronouncing words, pointing to his left to a garden and mixing up the plural. This occurred 31 years ago and Gabriel is a woman and her name is Gabrielle. She then informed Rabbi Snitzer and he and the Messiah then also had a conversation which is also foretold. Gabrielle was a friend of John, the Messisahs' next door neighbor who also witnessed the drummer boy.

"When a man believes in me, he does not believe in me only, but in the one who sent me. When he looks at me, he sees the one who sent me. I have come into the world as a light, so that no-one who believes in me should stay in darkness."

—John 12:44-46


Jesus often spoke in parables and used allegories. Here he speaks of himself as a gate and a shepherd, and his followers as sheep.

"I am the gate; whoever enters through me will be saved. He will come in and go out and find pasture. The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full."

—John 10:10

"I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep."

—John 10:11

"I am the good shepherd; I know my sheep and my sheep know me—just as the Father knows me and I know the Father—and I lay down my life for the sheep."

—John 10:4


This ‘laying down’ of his life was a voluntary act based on his own authority.

"The reason my Father loves me is that I lay down my life—only to take it up again. No-one takes it from me, but I lay it down of my own accord. I have authority to lay it down and authority to take it up again."

—John 10:17


The ‘life in full’ that Jesus came to provide includes the assurance here and now of the life to come:

BRAIN DEFECTS OF MUHAMMAD:

Of Mohammed's physical traits, one which draws the attention is that he suffered chronic headaches, which he tried to remedy by bleeding himself in two veins in his neck.

- Dr. Somers in his book Een Andere Mohammed.

COMMENT: Brain defect - headaches, foaming at the mouth and tremors.
