Who Is Allah?

There are 253944 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?”

The problem is with you and not with our prophet.

The list of his admirers include some of the best philosophers, thinkers, scientists and people of letters.

His uncouth critics include people like Salman Rushdie, Taslima Nasreen and similar Genius.

It is not my fault, that which group you choose to be with!!

Does the list of Muhammad's admires include Holy men of of God?
NO!
Their view of Muhammad are based on a secular view point and not on the moral character of God.
Muhammad's aim was to become a ruler and subdue the world under his control.
And Muhammad's secular admires base their opinion and view on how successful Muhammad was in accomplishing his goal.
Muhammad succeeded in conquering the Arab world and placing it under his rule.
The moral behavior of Muhammad is not is questioned by his secular admires.
They gave Muhammad a pass on his moral conduct, and did not compare Gods moral teaching to the methods Muhammad used to conquer his enemies.
What Muhammad did was to place God under Muhammad's rule.
Under Muhammad's rule God is not allowed to love non-Muslims unless they convert to Muhammad's set of rules.
Under Muhammad's rules only the good deeds of Muslims are accepted by the Muslim Allah God.
The Good deeds performed by non-Muslims are not accepted by Muhammad's Allah God.

The Quran contains at least 109 verses that call Muslims to war with nonbelievers for the sake of Islamic rule.
That above statement defines Muhammad and his Muslim followers as
who they really are.
They call them self a religion for the sole purpose to rule over the life of non-believers of Muhammad.

There are graphics, with commands to chop off heads and fingers and kill infidels wherever they may be hiding. Muslims who do not join the fight are called 'hypocrites' and warned that Allah will send them to Hell if they do not join the slaughter.

Unlike nearly all of the Old Testament verses of violence, the verses of violence in the Quran are mostly open-ended, meaning that they are not restrained by the historical context of the surrounding text. They are part of the eternal, unchanging word of Allah, and just as relevant or subjective as anything else in the Quran.

The context of violent passages is more ambiguous than might be expected of a perfect book from a loving God, however this can work both ways. Most of today's Muslims exercise a personal choice to interpret their holy book's call to arms according to their own moral preconceptions about justifiable violence. Apologists cater to their preferences with tenuous arguments that gloss over historical fact and generally do not stand up to scrutiny. Still, it is important to note that the problem is not bad people, but bad ideology.

Unfortunately, there are very few verses of tolerance and peace to abrogate or even balance out the many that call for nonbelievers to be fought and subdued until they either accept humiliation, convert to Islam, or are killed. Muhammad's own martial legacy - and that of his companions - along with the remarkable stress on violence found in the Quran have produced a trail of blood and tears across world history.

One interesting point on the messiah-crteria,when I first did the leg work(search) I accidentally ran accross this info and at the time(1994)I only found three including Jesus(pbuh) Mirthra of persia and khrishna of hindustan.I left it at that thinking it just a coincidence.Until with the aid of the new technologies a friend offered up a link in the year 2001 and then to my horror,there were a whopping eighteen Messiahs! all with the exact-Same-criteria! Now There is a great equalizer against the psuedo-jesus-fans.and believe me I used it when the opportune moments arised. So,I hope to pass this on to all who deem it an important part of messianiac history. CheerZ & Maxa-S-Salaama
Thank you, Azeeze-mun (My dear) for your input.

I would like to add a few points and I am sure you will find these thought-provoking:

1. The LORD had promised only a prophet to the Hebrews and others present at the Mount, which was towering over them. I have used the word 'towering over them' because I do not want to use the literal translation, which shows as if the LORD had lifted the Mount and it was dangling over the poor folks.

2. No messiah was promised to the Hebrews and the Jews, who came long after them.

3. The Jews were waiting for a deliverer just as their forefathers had their deliverers Moses and David, delivered to them.

4. When Paul went into the lands of pagans, who always believed in a Son of their God, he marketed Jesus as the Son of God and this worked fine. The pagan converts gladly accepted the product.

5. However, the Romans preferred to have at least three gods, so Trinity or the triune God was marketed and it sold well. People bought it without questioning the product sold. They were a people, who like pagan Arabs had no Scriptures at all. They gladly accepted the triune God.

6. And, of course, the Jews never fell for the fraud and did not buy it at all.

7. While most of the past prophets wrote, Jesus only did the talking. He just tried to reform the religion of God.

8. Please note that Jesus started preaching in distant villages, where mainstream Jews did not live. So, he preached to people belonging to various sects. And these were the people, who were more into waiting for the messiah.

9. Jesus never called himself the messiah and never declared, "I am the Messiah that you have been waiting for". People thought he was the messiah promised by their sages. And note that in John the people asked him not to keep them in suspense. That shows he ahd never told them directly before.

More later, if you wish, your eminence.

May be they are not "Holy enough" for you!!

Or you consider your St. Paul and Popes are the "Only" Holy ones?

There are many priests and bishops and Rabbis who have converted to islam during past history of Islam and the trend still continues.

Any one who reads the life history of our prophet with open mind, becomes his admirer....those who have a blue or yellow glasses before their eyes, only see every thing in yellow or blue.

There is nothing wrong in his life history, it is the lens of glass that is to be blamed.

MUQ, give me a break!
Your stupidity is greater than your intelligence.

You cannot compare Moses and Jesus to Muhammad.
Moses and Jesus did not compel every one to live under a one rule government on earth.

God is not a religion MUQ.
God recognizes that the nations have their own rulers.

You say things to sound intelligent, but they are filled with illogical reasoning, and illogical logic thinking.

Jesus said "Give to Cesar what is Cesar's and give to God what is God's."

Muslims are illiterate when it comes to understanding Gods teachings.
Muhammad was to spread Gods Word to the world, but not Muhammad's religion.

By Muhammad spreading His religion Muhammad corrupted Gods Word to mankind.

Islam is a corrupted religion, filled with Muhammad's sinful way of life.

Muhammad's laws do not comply with Gods laws.
Muhammad's religious laws are forced upon non-believers and that violates Gods laws.

I am born free to chose how I want to worship God.
So Muslims have no right to force me to worship Allah and His messenger Muhammad, or kill me for my belief in God or non-belief in God.
Only God has the right to take my life.

Moses did "force" Jews to follow his religion, those who disobeyed were punished in front of every body.

You re-read the books of Exodus and Leviticus and Deuteronomy.

As Regards jesus, "Poor Jesus" did not get any chance to "force" any one to follow his teachings, he himself was dragged and convicted and crucified like a "petty criminal" (Not Muslims views but as per Christian's own scriptures).

Our prophet did not "force" any one to accept his religion. he used force to break the might of those who were planning against Islamic nation and using force to not allow free propagation of Islam into their lands.

Despite your bullish language, you are afraid of his teachings and have a deep inferiority complex, towards achievement of our prophet.

Matthew 19:1-9

New International Version (NIV)


Divorce

19 When Jesus had finished saying these things, he left Galilee and went into the region of Judea to the other side of the Jordan. 2 Large crowds followed him, and he healed them there.

3 Some Pharisees came to him to test him. They asked,“Is it lawful for a man to divorce his wife for any and every reason?”

4 “Haven’t you read,” he replied,“that at the beginning the Creator ‘made them male and female,’[a] 5 and said,‘For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh’[b]? 6 So they are no longer two, but one flesh. Therefore what God has joined together, let no one separate.”

7 “Why then,” they asked,“did Moses command that a man give his wife a certificate of divorce and send her away?”

8 Jesus replied,“Moses permitted you to divorce your wives because your hearts were hard. But it was not this way from the beginning. 9 I tell you that anyone who divorces his wife, except for sexual immorality, and marries another woman commits adultery.”

I've been reading "with open mind" the histories of Mohammad as written by early Muslims like Bukhari and Tabari and Muslim, and am persuaded from their accounts that your "prophet" was a thin-skinned megalomaniac, a thief, a liar, an adulterer, an enslaver of women and children, and a sadistic murderer, at the very least.

What's not to admire?
