Who Is Allah?

There are 230661 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?”

Actually the Quran a book supposed to be written in pure arabic is filled of foreign words coming from Hebrew, Coptic, Syrian, Ethiopian, Persian, Greek and Indian etc.
Well, my research has suggested the same thing. Yet the Quran itself supposedly claims it is in Arabic, so that they can understand it. And that statement alone proves that Islam was not created for mankind, it was created for the Arabs who had nothing like what the Jews and Christians had. To me, it seems like Muhammad had some admiration for what they had, so he decided to create a version of it for his fellow Arabs. So he hijacked what they had, rewrote some things to suit his needs, and then leveled the charge of corruption against the things that he stole from so that his rewrites or changes could never be questioned. It's not very difficult to figure out.

But if you are an uneducated pagan Arab who had no idea of the religions Muhammad claimed he was completing, you will not know enough to see through the scam. But an overwhelming majority of Jews and Christians who knew the religions that Muhammad was claiming to complete could see through it right away.

It really even gets tiresome to even bother to call this guy a dummy anymore because it has to be done so often. And he never gets it anyway. He thinks you are calling him dummy because you are just jealous of how smart he is. That's how stupid he actually is.

Englsih expert...
Well apparently, he understands the subtleties of English better than you do, and from what I can tell, he lives in Italy whereas you live in the UK. So how does that happen? I would venture to say that BMZ knows the subtleties of English better than you do, and good for him because that is his second or even third language, not the native language of where he lives. So that's actually quite impressive. Now if his reasoning skills actually adjusted to go along with his English knowledge, that would be really impressive.

But either way, what's your excuse? You have neither the language skills nor the reasoning skills of people who don't even live in the UK. And in the case of BMZ, he has never even been exposed to a really good western education system whereas I assume you have. So again, what's your excuse? What happened? You are supposed to have been taught basic common sense and reasoning skills, as this is supposed to be a basic part of the British education curriculum.

16:103 (Y. Ali) We know indeed that they say, "It is a man that teaches him." The tongue of him they wickedly point to is notably foreign, while this is arabic, pure and clear.

12:2 (Y. Ali) We have sent it down as an arabic Qur'an, in order that ye may learn wisdom.

13:37 (Y. Ali) Thus have We revealed it to be a judgment of authority in arabic.

20:113 (Y. Ali) Thus have We sent this down - an arabic Qur'an

41:3 (Y. Ali) A Book, whereof the verses are explained in detail;- a Qur'an in arabic, for people who understand;

41:44 (Y. Ali) Had We sent this as a Qur'an (in the language) other than arabic, they would have said: "Why are not its verses explained in detail? What!(a Book) not in arabic and (a Messenger an Arab?"

42:7 (Y. Ali) Thus have We sent by inspiration to thee an arabic Qur'an

43:3 (Y. Ali) We have made it a Qur'an in arabic, that ye may be able to understand

It's pretty clear you have no whatsoever idea of what Trinity is. You really lack of basic infos about it. This is why we don't believe you were a priest, among the other things you claimed to have been.
Really??? LOL!!!! BTW, apparently he has has also claimed to have been a Rabbi as well. Might as well throw that hat into the ring while we are at it for good measure. Why not? Couldn't hurt, according to his mind. But it's already so pathetic that I doubt it really even matters at this point. And he thinks his behavior is perfectly fine and that Allah approves and even worse, he actually is so stupid to think that people would ever believe him. That might be the most pathetic part of it all. Well maybe Allah actually does approve, but I doubt God ever would.

Muhammad? WTF?! I thought you Muslims think Quran is the word of Allah and not of Muhammad. Well, I guess you finally understood who was behind the Quran then...

Quran 16:103

We know indeed that they say, "It is a man that teaches him." The tongue of him they wickedly point to is notably foreign, while this is Arabic, pure and clear.

I didn't understand why you came out with Shakespeare. Even if Shakespeare used foreign words, then what? What has this anything to do with Quran, anyhow? That poor man had neither claimed to write in pure English, but even if he did and at the same time used several foreign words, then what? Are you comparing a man with god?

Your mental incapicity of reasoning is really so amazing that you deserve a place in the Guinness world record. I'll try my very best to contact them sending your posts to their attention, so that you can get the award you merit.

I have never understood what's the point for a British or a wannabe one to underline the errors of a non-English speaker. It's not a big deal. The problem comes when an English speaker or a supposed one like him doesn't understand the verb forms in English or can't grasp the subtileties in English seen before. He really is the saddest case Allah sent us to deal with.

But Allah couldn't get a better lawyer than him?

Besides I knew my mistakes. The correct forms "Daniel's dreams" and "your stupidity is entertaining me". It's just am writing fast, no time for a second look.

After my response about Trinity he would probably say I'm a closet Catholic for the simple fact I underlined his ignorance about Christian dogma.

Did this clown really claim to be a rabbi? So to make a resume he claimed to be a priest, a scientist, an unspecified role for a merchant/investment bank, another unspecified role in a pizza company, he's millionaire and now a rabbi.

Can this c*nt even figure out that all those roles need different routes of study, and that among them they are not complementary, which it makes highly improbable that he has been any of them?
And then I've already seen his knowledge on many of the fields he claimed to have been and it's shamefully mediocre, to say in polite way.

Apparently yes. Someone else identified him doing that before I came here, and he never denied it.

And I think he has done all of this before he has even turned 15. Or, at least I hope he is 14 or under, or else this would be a real problem case.

You know? I really am too mean here. But it's soooo irresistible and seems so well deserved. But it's still not right no matter how well deserved it seems to be.

I need to try to have more self control. I actually can feel guilty about it and I am capable of self introspection. I know that nobody would believe it, but if you met me in person, I'm actually a really nice guy. And I actually support poor children via donations and help seniors on my free time. I'm actually not kidding, but I wouldn't be surprised if nobody believed me.

I'm going to try to use a little more self control in the future. I have an insulting comedian aspect to me that I need to reign in. Humor is just part of my nature, but it needs to be more controlled.

Nah. Just kidding. BWAHAHAHAHA!!!

Both are funny and I think that British humour is good and is not based on insults like that of another country.
