Who Is Allah?

There are 256295 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?”

rabbee: yes i would like to hear, your other excuses? i would like to also hear, your excuses why you left one false religion for another false religion. in which neither, actually worship TheG-D of TheWhole Torah here in IT again. and even if you were to become a jew, in Judaism. you still would not be true to G-D, here in TheTorah still Today. and so would not make any difference, if you became a buddist monk not here in TheTorah today.
leaving one false establishment for another false establishment, does not make you true to G-D. you make only think, you made an exchange for the better. but i have some serious doubts, that you made an exchange for the better. in a whole world without one true church, mosque, or synagogue, today here in TheTorah. and as indicated in TheTorah for this period of time, actually here in IT again.
and the indication are, if i cannot even find one alleged as jew true to G-D here today in TheTorah. i am not about to find, any one anywhere else in this world true to G-D here in TheTorah again. for if i found even one jew, true to HaShem here in TheTorah today. i would find at least ten gentiles following him around. and if two, there would be a hundred followers etc..
What is your religion Rabbee?
How many people are like you?
Thank you.....

Oh ok Shamma.
You seem to know the Sharia Law.
Show me where in Sharia Law it gives a wayward nutcase the right to kill a fellow human being just because he thinks the other person killed muslims?
I am sure you must have a tiny bit of brain to wrok that one out?
Where in Quran it prmises me 72 virgins if I kill a citizen of my own country while he was in civilian clothing and not planning on even threatening me?
The 72 Virgins are missing from Quran....I wonder why?
By the way, did you ever wonder how you enter heaven....do you enter as a virgin..or a seasoned AIDS victim with puss?
Think carefully!!..lol..
Quran (2:191-193)- "And slay them wherever ye find them, and drive them out of the places whence they drove you out, for persecution [of Muslims] is worse than slaughter [of non-believers]... but if they desist, then lo! Allah is forgiving and merciful.

And fight them until persecution is no more, and religion is for Allah." The historical context of this passage is not defensive warfare, since Muhammad and his Muslims had just relocated to Medina and were not under attack by their Meccan adversaries.
In fact, the verses urge offensive warfare, in that Muslims are to drive Meccans out of their own city (which they later did).

The use of the word "persecution" by some Muslim translators is thus disingenuous (the actual Muslim words for persecution - "idtihad" - and oppression - a variation of "z-l-m" - do not appear in the verse).
The actual Arabic comes from "fitna" which can mean disbelief, or the disorder that results from unbelief or temptation. Taken as a whole, the context makes clear that violence is being authorized until "religion is for Allah" - ie. unbelievers desist in their unbelief.
Those verses Alex is what the Muslim that killed that UK soldier was referring to as why he killed that UK soldier.

Quran (2:244)- "Then fight in the cause of Allah, and know that Allah Heareth and knoweth all things."

Quran (2:216)- "Fighting is prescribed for you, and ye dislike it. But it is possible that ye dislike a thing which is good for you, and that ye love a thing which is bad for you. But Allah knoweth, and ye know not."
Not only does this verse establish that violence can be virtuous, but it also contradicts the myth that fighting is intended only in self-defense, since the audience was obviously not under attack at the time.
From the Hadith, we know that this verse was narrated at a time that Muhammad was actually trying to motivate his people into raiding merchant caravans for loot.

Sharia law does nor abrogate the Quran and Hadith Alex.
The Hadith is the engine that runs the Quran.

The peace passages in the Quran prior to Sura 9 were abrogated.
Muslims like to quote them from the Quran, but they are no longer valid.

No you do not know all there is in the OT or the NT.

You don't even know who the god in the Quran is.
All you know about the Muslim god Allah is that you were told it is the God of Abraham with out you ever knowing who the God of Abraham is.

Hello Shamma....
Why do you insist on dragging in the OT....?
By turning G-d into peeing pooing man, you invalidate the OT!
You don't need the OT for your lies...just use NT and the Church "rule books"...

..Jesus NEVER said that he manifested himself in human form of God on earth..LOLOLOLOL.....assuming you know what manifest means..lol

Yes,...even if I did not know anything...and if I am told Allah is G-d of Abraham and if Allah is given this description...I would be quite happy....

G-d is ONE
G-d is eternal
G-d is self subsisting
G-d is unique
G-d is not daddy of people or is sonny of people.
G-d is unlike ANY of G-d's creation...

Now that is a darn good start..!

The OT and NT are the unified Word of God.
In the OT god gave the His law to Moses as Gods law for mankind to obey.
Once you understand Gods law you will understand the NT.
Read carefully:
All people have sinned against God. But, God is infinitely holy and righteous.
He must punish the sinner, the Law- breaker. If He didn't, then His law is not Law for there is no law that is a law without a punishment.

The punishment for breaking the Law is death, separation from God. Therefore, we sinners need a way to escape the righteous judgment of God.
Since we are stained by sin and cannot keep the Law of God, then the only one who could do what we cannot is God Himself.

That is why Jesus is God in flesh. He is both divine and human.
He was made under the Law (Gal. 4:4) and He fulfilled it perfectly. Therefore, His sacrifice to God the Father on our behalf is of infinite value and is sufficient to cleanse all people from their sins and undo the offense to God.

If God would just forgive sin with out punishing anyone for sin against him, then giving the law to man was useless.

God could not then demand that we follow the law for when we broke the law all we had to do is ask for forgiveness, and god would be spending eternity forgiving man for his sins.
So lying, rape, robbery, and murder would continually be going on in heaven for there would be no punishment for sin.
That is not what God wanted.

The NT brings Gods plan for mans salvation to completion.

This is the bread that comes down from heaven, so that one may eat of it and not die. I am the living bread that came down from heaven. If anyone eats of this bread, he will live forever. And the bread that I will give for the life of the world is my flesh.” The Jews then disputed among themselves, saying,“How can this man give us his flesh to eat?” So Jesus said to them,“Truly, truly, I say to you, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink his blood, you have no life in you. Whoever feeds on my flesh and drinks my blood has eternal life, and I will raise him up on the last day....

Sure he did, fight those who fight you. The soldier fought in Muslim lands against Muslims. He didn't think they were fighting in Afghanistan, he only knew there were Muslims there. There is no such thing as countries in Islam, there are only lands with Muslims in them. And no matter what that country's situation is, if you are fighting against Muslims in that land, that's all that matters. He understood Islam very well. And he even said all of this and explained it very well. His authority was the Quran itself and he even explained it and I recognized what he was saying right away because I know the Quran.

Catholics are especially guilty of idolatry, you've all seen the pope walk around with the image of Jesus on the cross but they are so ignorant, they can't see what they're doing.
You are very right in your analysis.

teachings of Bible is so clear, I wonder how these people fell into the error of making "imaginary" photos, statues and images of Jesus and Mary and disciples of jesus and bowing before these figures and statues.
