Who Is Allah?

There are 256266 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?”

Qur'an 4:114 "He who disobeys the Apostle after guidance has been revealed will burn in Hell."

Hmm...what is the nature of this burning?

Qur'an 56:41 "But those of the left hand-how unhappy those of the left hand. They will be in the scorching hot wind and boiling water, under the shadow of thick black smoke, neither cool nor agreeable....They will be gathered together on a certain day which is predetermined. Then you, the erring and the deniers will eat Zaqqoom [a thorn tree]. Fill your bellies with it, and drink scalding water, lapping it up like female camels raging of thirst and diseased. Such will be their entertainment, their welcome on the Day of Doom...the welcome of boiling water and the entertainment of roasting in Hell. This is the ultimate truth."

Wow! I had better obey "the Apostle," or face the ULTIMATE TRUTH!!!!

Qur'an 37:63 "For We have truly made it as a trial to torment the disbelievers. Zaqqum is a horrible thorn tree that grows in Hell. The shoots of its fruit-stalks are like the heads of devils. Truly they [non-Muslims] will eat it and fill their bellies with it. On top of that they will be given a mixture made of boiling water to drink especially prepared. Then they shall be returned to the Blazing Fire."

A tree grows in Hell? Who knew?

Qur'an 74:26 "Soon will I fling them into the burning Hell Fire! And what will explain what Hell Fire is? It permits nothing to endure, and nothing does it spare! It darkens and changes the color of man, burning the skin! It shrivels and scorches men."

Umm.. a tree grows in Hell. It ENDURES.

El Cid, it is very useful that you post these things that most Muslims themselves are not even aware of. When someone puts them all together, it surely paints a picture, and not a very good one. There is a website called the council of ex Muslims which is a website of British ex Muslims. Almost every ex Muslim, including the ones from there that I have ever corresponded with, were all raised as Muslims and remained so until they actually studied the religion they were born with. And they all say that after they actually bothered to study it, that is why they actually left. Most Muslims are not even aware of what you post, and when they see things like what you post, they either try to make up stories for themselves as to why what you post is illegitimate, or they merely tell themselves that you are just "biased" as a way for them to be able to ignore all of this. I don't know how anybody can be "biased" by merely accurately quoting from Muslim sources themselves, but this is what they have to tell themselves so that they can dismiss things like this because it is too disturbing for them to consider, But it's there, whether they like it or not, or find excuses to deny it or not. It's the same thing as with all of the hadiths that clearly show that Muhammad condoned rape. They try to find all sorts of excuses for that, from calling you biased for even posting it, to finding a way to call the hadiths illegitimate, to even finding excuses to justify it. But at the end of the day, there is just so much consistent evidence for things like this, from Muslim sources themselves, that they are merely living in denial.

Off -topic as usual! I had written this:

You learnt about a God through the Church and her priests, who formed that God based on a few books and letters from men, who never sat in the company of Jesus.

Heck! They did not even sit in the company of his disciples and their grandchildren.

The information that the Church received was a 2nd-hand information, which actually was a 200th-hand information.

So, this God of yours was given by the Church fathers, who were inspired by the Greek philosophers. This resulted in the absurd triune God.

Jesus did not teach a triune God or the trinity. Neither Jesus nor his disciples preached it. Since he did not teach that, it means you did not learn anything from Jesus.

You learned only what the unauthorized Church, founded by a pagan emperor, taught you.

You sound like the notorious character Paul, reported to be an angry midget, who reached Peter's waist in height. lol!

<quoted text>and it is ok with muslims, to deceive an enemy with false peace. to get close enough, for thier murdering.
That is exactly what Muhammad did when he signed a 10 year peace treaty with the Meccans. He lulled them into a false sense of security so that he could buy time to build up his army without worrying about them preemptively attacking him before he could do this. Smart, deceptive move on his part. But to think that he ever even had any intention of keeping that treaty for one moment longer than he had to, let alone 10 years, would be crazy and naive for anybody to believe. How could "Allah's Apostle" be denied the Kaaba for even one moment longer than necessary? So the Meccans were fools for ever trusting him and entering into any treaty with him. And the first year, the Meccans kept their end of the bargain and allowed Muslims to enter Mecca and do pilgrimage to the Kaaba while the Meccans essentially cleared out and stood aside for a few days, as per the agreement. The second year, the Meccans also kept their end of the bargain, except for this time, the pilgrims were actually 10,000 armed men bent on conquering Mecca. That's the way Muhammad worked.

There was also the story of Muhammad being ready to sack a Jewish city, so the Jews offered to have their Rabbis meet with Muhammad the next day and ask him questions, and if he could answer them correctly, they agreed that they would consider him a prophet and allow him to take the city without a fight and rule over it. Good solution. No blood shed. Muhammad agreed. But then, of course, that night, out comes another conspiracy theory that the Rabbis would try to kill him, so there was no meeting and he just sacked the city. Obviously, he knew he would not be able to answer their questions for him, so yet another conspiracy had to be invented for him to justify what he wanted to do.

The problem is that Jesus gave no Sharia. If he had done that your society would not have become decadent.

That is what Jesus did not teach although he had the entire Sharia given by Moses with him.

Instead of teaching the Sharia left by Moses, Jesus started giving himself more importance instead of glorifying God.

He wanted self-praise at any cost. He became a megalomaniac suffering from severe personality disorder and became a polemicist against the Jews. And left his dumb disciples and a few followers confused and confounded.

He had become a lunatic to the extent that he started to think he was God and everything. That sank him and resulted in a failed and flop mission.

If allah created the religion , why he did not create this before? Because before nothing was there? Sudenly he got manifested and all then. The universe is created only 1500 years before then. There was nothing. When universe created , allah created others and created an amazing history and due to that history, humans are divided into humans and jins. since Jins were ruling the word before as per the new creation. And after 1500 yrs again a new religion shall take birth and so this can repeat.

Mr. Seeker

Do you think by posting such a long post would strengthen your case?

This is the same thing I was telling you about.

Either you loose all interest in the topic and when you interest is re-kindled, you post such a long post, how could one reply to it?

So it is better if you discuss only one point at a time.

Let us talk about Prophet,

Who satisfies the criterion of prophet better, Jesus or Our prophet?

If you ask any Christian who is Jesus? How many would reply "A prophet of God"?

And if you ask one billion Muslims, Who was Mohammad, do you know, how many would answer "Prophet of God"?

99.99 %!!

So who satisfies the Prophet part better?

Jesus or Our prophet.

Let us go slow, I have lot of time and patience, it is you who lack patience.

Thank you, Shamma!!!!!!!!

Jesus the JEWISH MAN (who HATED Gentiles, by referring to them as DOGS and PIGS) was urging his own BLOOD RELATIVES, the Jewish people, to worship THEIR G-d.

Here is the mother of all questions as far as you are concerned:

WHY the hell DO YOU WORSHIP this JEWISH MAN who is NOT CONNECTED to you IN ANY WAY?

AND.....

Show us where Jesus makes DIRECT claims in the first person as follows, in the Synoptic Gospels OR EVEN GOSPEL OF JOHN, by giving us chapter/verse as proof:

1. "I am God in 'the' flesh"

("Give YES or NO answers providing relevant chapters and verses as proof. No need for any additional comments or own interpretations")

Bukhari:V6B61N504 "Allah's Apostle said,'Every Prophet was given miracles because of which people believed, but what I have been given is Divine Inspiration which Allah has revealed to me. So I hope that my followers will outnumber the followers of the other Prophets.'"

What a megalomaniacal ignoramus!

Isaiah was a bona fide Hebrew prophet who was given Divine Inspiration but was NOT given miracles. Nor was Jeremiah, Hosea, Habakkuk, Daniel, etc., but NONE of these prophets EVER expressed the hope in the recorded text that their "followers will outnumber the followers of the other Prophets.'"

I pity Muslims. They are saddled with this utterly insecure Arabian's "Divinely Inspired" angst.
