Who Is Allah?

There are 256358 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 scriptures do not say that God came down to earth in the form of a man. So, we have to rule it out without a second thought.
Has any Muslim seen,or heard the voice of Allah, or talked to Allah?

No one has seen or heard the voice of Allah, the LORD Almighty God, but many do speak to God. However, God does not talk back.

Remember Jesus also spoke a lot but you don't see God talking back to Jesus? Right?

How many patents are issued to people in Muslim countries?

Where are the medical schools or the great universities?

What do Muslims under Muslim rule invent or produce?

Islam is a backwater, in dire need of a Reformation.

Shamma,
You already know that the Trinity is a hoax and a big lie. Trinity was only concocted in the 6th Century.
Jesus is not on record for teaching or preaching the Trinity abomination and absurdity. If the so-called Trinity were true, people would not have quarreled for 4 plus centuries. It would have been declared by Jesus in his life time.
Only Gabriel, angels, Adam, Eve and satan have seen God but no other man has seen God.
It is obvious you are unable to comprehend what you read in the Scriptures.

Thanks, but not for long. I have wasted a ton of time here and next week is going to be busy for me as I have another contract assignment. You can tell these people anything and show them anything, but they have an uncanny ability to send their mind into zombie or sleep mode and pretend as though you haven't shown them a single thing. It's interesting, when the Bible is brought up, suddenly they show faint signs of critical thinking abilities, but as soon as the Quran is brought up, their minds go completely out the window. It's totally bizarre. Strangest people on the planet and it can't be a genetic thing so it must be an Islamic thing. Muhammad has really messed with these people's minds and has stolen it.

I don't blame them. They are hypnotized and therefore don't know any better. I put all of the blame on that 7th century charlatan, bandit, pedophile warlord named Muhammad. The Bible can be a weird book with some possible problem areas, but I have never in my life read a scripture that is so easily and clearly proven to be a clear fraud as the Quran. 1.5 billion 7th century zombies with stupid special sensibilities who are ready to fight at the drop of a hat, that the rest of the world has to tolerate. Just look at how stupid they look in their dog bowl hats, stupid fist long beards, man dresses and those absolutely ridiculous burqas and the stupid hijabs that look like they decided to take someone's hanky and for some stupid reason stick it on their head. Gee, thanks a lot Muhammad.

If Jesus had not entered into Tu Quoque exchanges with the Jews, had sat down and discussed with the elders and the high priests, it would have been a different story.
Jesus was not about to appease charlatans who were more concerned about their wealth and authority than God. Jesus didn't "make deals" with people. The Devil makes deals, not God. Muhammad was a deal maker. In fact, he even incorporated different parts of many religions into his made up invention so that he could hope to attract people from those religions. And he even went so far as adding the Kaaba, Black Stone and the Jinn into Islam to appeal to the pagans. These things had zero basis or importance in Christianity and Judaism and all of their importance clearly came from the pagans of Muhammad's time and area. Look at even the Satanic Verses where he changed his mind the next day and claimed that was Satan that spoke through him the day before? This guy was one excuse after another.

All he really knew how to do was to make ridiculous promises of a male warrior's paradise where they could have sex all day long with virgins so that people would gladly give their lives for him, and invade and rob people. Even he himself threatened people by saying he would send upon them a people who love death more than life. And all that his thugs knew was that suddenly they were gaining a ton of booty through forceful means when they were poor before. Muhammad taught them the RIGHT and most effective way to pillage and plunder.

Is there any sign of the Christian Trinity in your theTorah, Rabbee? Please advise.
rabbee: i keep telling you: "(and G-D said, "let US make Adam in OUR IMAGE, after OUR LIKENESS, They shall rule over the fish in the sea, the birds of the sky, and over the animal, the whole earth, and every creeping thing that creeps upon the earth. so G-D created Adam in HIS IMAGE, in The Image of G-D HE created HIM; male and female HE created Them.

G-D blessed Them, and G-D said to Them, "be fruitful and multiply, fill the earth and subdue it: and rule over the fish in the sea, the bird of the sky, and every living thing that moves on the earth. ")" and you are still, just not listening.

Has anyone seen God or not?
Exodus 24:9-11, Exodus 33:11, Exodus 6:2-3; and John 1:18

Has seen
(Gen. 17:1)–“Now when Abram was ninety-nine years old, the LORD appeared to Abram and said to him, "I am God Almighty ; Walk before Me, and be blameless;

(Gen. 18:1) Now the LORD appeared to him by the oaks of Mamre, while he was sitting at the tent door in the heat of the day.”

(Exodus 6:2-3)–“God spoke further to Moses and said to him, "I am the LORD; 3and I appeared to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, as God Almighty, but by My name, LORD, I did not make Myself known to them.”

(Exodus 24:9-11)–“Then Moses went up with Aaron, Nadab and Abihu, and seventy of the elders of Israel, 10and they saw the God of Israel; and under His feet there appeared to be a pavement of sapphire, as clear as the sky itself. 11Yet He did not stretch out His hand against the nobles of the sons of Israel; and they saw God, and they ate and drank.”
(Num. 12:6-8)–“He said, "Hear now My words: If there is a prophet among you, I, the LORD, shall make Myself known to him in a vision. I shall speak with him in a dream.

7"Not so, with My servant Moses, He is faithful in all My household; 8With him I speak mouth to mouth, Even openly, and not in dark sayings, And he beholds the form of the LORD. Why then were you not afraid To speak against My servant, against Moses ?"

(Acts 7:2), "And he [Stephen] said,'Hear me, brethren and fathers! The God of glory appeared to our father Abraham when he was in Mesopotamia, before he lived in Haran...'"

Has not seen

(Exodus 33:20)–“But He [God] said, "You cannot see My face, for no man can see Me and live !"

(John 1:18)–“No one has seen God at any time; the only begotten God who is in the bosom of the Father, He has explained Him.”

(John 5:37)–“"And the Father who sent Me, He has testified of Me. You have neither heard His voice at any time nor seen His form.”

(John 6:46)- "Not that anyone has seen the Father, except the One who is from God; He has seen the Father.”

(1 Tim. 6:15-16)–“He who is the blessed and only Sovereign, the King of kings and Lord of lords, 16who alone possesses immortality and dwells in unapproachable light, whom no man has seen or can see. To Him be honor and eternal dominion! Amen.”

It is evident above that God was seen. But, considering the "can't-see-God" verses, some would understandably argue that there would be a contradiction.

One explanation offered is that the people were seeing visions, or dreams, or the Angel of the LORD (Num. 22:22-26; Judges 13:1-21) and not really God Himself. But the problem is that the verses cited above do not say vision, dream, or Angel of the LORD. They say that people saw God (Exodus 24:9-11), that God was seen, and that He appeared as God Almighty (Exodus 6:2-3).

At first, this is difficult to understand. God Almighty was seen (Exodus 6:2-3) which means it was not the Angel of the Lord, for an angel is not God Almighty, and at least Moses saw God, not in a vision or dream, as the LORD Himself attests in Num. 12:6-8. If these verses mean what they say, then we naturally assume we have a contradiction. Actually, the contradiction exists in our understanding, not in the Bible--which is always the case with alleged biblical contradictions.

The solution is simple. All you need to do is accept what the Bible says. If the people of the OT were seeing God, the Almighty God, and Jesus said that no one has ever seen the Father (John 6:46), then they were seeing God Almighty, but not the Father. It was someone else in the Godhead. Scripture suggest that they were seeing the Word before He became incarnate. In other words, they were seeing Jesus.

Therefore, Almighty God was seen, but not the Father. It was Jesus before His incarnation. There is more than one person in the Godhead and according to scripture then doctrine of the Trinity must be true.

That what El Cid was saying you stupid idiot, he said they weren't killing Muslims but merely oppressing them by keeping them out of the Kaaba. I even had to tell you what he was clearly saying after he clearly told you and your cross eyed mind still doesn't get it. What ails you? And they SHOULD have kept Muslims out of the Kaaba, based on how the first thing that mister no compulsion in religion did was to smash all of their statues as soon as he could. They were idiots for making any treaty at all with Muhammad, as Muhammad had no intention whatsoever to keep that treaty with them one second longer than he had to and all he was doing was to lull them into a false sense of security to buy time to build up his army.

No one has seen or heard the voice of Allah the Muslim god, because the Muslim god Allah does not exist!

Muhammad fabricated the use of the word Allah from his worship of the pagan moon god called Allah.

God is a Trinity, and Jesus is God Almighty the one seen and heard, and talked about in the OT and NT.

The question 'what good did Jesus' miracles do?" was asked because his mission was finally unsuccessful and flopped.
This is now the 4th time I have had to repeat this for your thick head. Read below and tell me how you could possibly think that this all was not God's will. READ IT this time. How can God carrying out his will ever be looked at as a failure? I'll put the relevant parts in all CAPS for you so that you will see it this time.

21 From that time on Jesus began to explain to his disciples that he must go to Jerusalem and suffer many things at the hands of the elders, the chief priests and the teachers of the law, and that he must be killed and ON THE THIRD DAY WILL BE RAISED TO LIFE.

22 Peter took him aside and began to rebuke him.“Never, Lord!” he said.“This shall never happen to you!”

23 Jesus turned and said to Peter,“Get behind me, Satan! YOU ARE A STUMBLING BLOCK TO ME; YOU DO NOT HAVE IN MIND THE CONCERNS OF GOD, BUT MERELY HUMAN CONCERNS.

Now tell me how your cross eyed mind could possibly consider this some sort of failure? I can't even begin to imagine how you reason. Why do Muslims have such a hard time with even the most simplistic forms of reasoning?

Did they stay there whole day?
Did they go to Muzdalfa and Mina?
Did they offer any animals for sacrifice there?
What do the ignorant fools at www.bible.ca have to say about this?
Who cares if Muhammad added a few things to it, the Kaaba, Black Stone and the Jinn all had pagan origins. Muhammad just made up a stupid story about Abraham giving significance to the Kaaba, Black Stone or the Jinn. The significance of these things are nowhere to be found in Judaism at all. So Muhammad had to make up another lie by saying those parts of the scriptures that gave these things significance got lost. This guy was willing to make up whatever lie he needed to. The only lie he couldn't make up was scriptures from the descendants of Ishmael because there were no scriptures from them. So he had to hijack the scriptures from the Jews to use as his platform and basis for his phony religion, and then charge them with corruption to make his stories work and explain why none of this pagan nonsense can be found anywhere in the Jewish scriptures.

Seeker, if you have an ounce of brain, then you can see that you talk through translations in English and there are many translations.
Your problem is that you cherry-pick a translation and insist on sticking only to a word of your choice and that is silly.
I dare not re-write the verses of Qur'aan but I can try to translate better.
An example, this part of 2:93
Translation by Shakir:
"And when We made a covenant with you and raised the mountain over you: Take hold of what We have given you with firmness and be obedient."
Now, most polemic clueless fools, who have no knowledge of Arabic will ask if the mountain was pulled out from the ground and was dangling over people's head?
Well I never would, so I have no idea of what you are talking about. And we were talking about the Quran itself saying that it replaces verses, but replaces them with ones that are better. That is abrogation, and the Quran even acknowledges this. And the only reason there needed to be abrogation and the Quran needed to be revealed over the course of 23 years was because it was Muhammad himself making these Suras up and he couldn't have known in advance how his circumstances would change.

Just look at Sura 66. What the heck is that even doing in the Quran? It was Muhammad dealing with a personal matter of his and then creating a Sura to make it look like God was sanctioning his behavior and giving him permission. It's so obvious. There was no instructions for mankind in that Sura at all, it was Muhammad using a made up Sura to deal with a personal problem he was having and using his Allah hand puppet to give it false authority.
