Who Is Allah?

There are 256357 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?”

but when tense is included, one of the two ways with the vav, one should take special note and care with it. and the Omni tense, of classicial eevreet, has a beauty of it's own. since it means this is forever true, where as added tense, could mean this is a one time thing in the past, present or future. and can be as confusing, as the moving svah is enough trouble for beginning eevreet. and is something, best done with a tutor. since the context of the passage, has a lot to do with the interpretation of the reversing vav.

<quoted text>Allah - the Moon God
The Archaeology of the Middle East
The religion of Islam has as its focus of worship a deity by the name of "Allah." The Muslims claim that Allah in pre-Islamic times was the biblical God of the Patriarchs, prophets, and apostles. The issue is thus one of continuity. Was "Allah" the biblical God or a pagan god in Arabia during pre-Islamic times? The Muslim's claim of continuity is essential to their attempt to convert Jews and Christians for if "Allah" is part of the flow of divine revelation in Scripture, then it is the next step in biblical religion. Thus we should all become Muslims. But, on the other hand, if Allah was a pre-Islamic pagan deity, then its core claim is refuted. Religious claims often fall before the results of hard sciences such as archeology. We can endlessly speculate about the past or go and dig it up and see what the evidence reveals. This is the only way to find out the truth concerning the origins of Allah. As we shall see, the hard evidence demonstrates that the god Allah was a pagan deity. In fact, he was the Moon-god who was married to the sun goddess and the stars were his daughters.

Ka'b was infuriated at the victory of the Muslims in the Battle of Badr, in March 624, and at the executions of a number of Meccan notables of the Quraysh tribe who had been captured after that battle.
...
Muhammad ibn Maslamah said: "O Messenger of Allah, do you wish that I should kill him?" He said: "Yes." He said: "Permit me to talk (to him in the way I deem fit)." He said: "Talk (as you like)."
That is, USE DECEPTION, as you will read.
So, Muhammad ibn Maslamah came to Ka‘b and talked to him, saying: "This man (i.e. the prophet Muhammad) has made up his mind to collect charity (from us) and this has put us to a great hardship." When he heard this, Ka‘b said: "By Allah you will be put to more trouble by him." Muhammad ibn Maslamah answered: "No doubt, now we have become his followers and we do not like to forsake him until we see what turn his affairs will take. I want that you should give me a loan." ot.

All are God's people. One cannot say that only the Jews and the Christians are God's people. You must remember that.

Islam is Judaism plus Qur'aan plus Muhammad. The LORD Almighty remains the same, whether one calls the LORD by the name Allah or Elohim or Adonai or Hashem or God Almighty.

There was no dash of Jesus added to appease anyone or the Christians.

Jesus was just mentioned as all other prophets were mentioned. The reason was to clarify that the son of Mary was nothing more than a man and that he was sent as a messenger to Israelites.

Qur'aan simply refuted and condemned the Trinity, clarified that God did not have a son and that Jesus was neither killed nor crucified.

It was like spreading a load of salt over Christianity's wounds.

Shamma,

You should worry about your absurd and ridiculous Triune God or the absurdity and monstrosity known as Trinity, which comprises of the following absurd three:

God, the Father.

God, the Son.

God, the Holy Ghost.

These three are ridiculous in the sight of the true LORD God Almighty.

You are wrong, if our prophet was to "kill every one" who did not believe in him, the whole of Arabia would have been full of corps.

The total casualties in ten years of his warfare (on both side) do not exceed 1000!!

How can you say that he killed "every one" who did not believe in him?

Muhammad lied!
God never gave Muhammad this revelation!
Bukhari (2:24)- "Allah's Apostle said: "I have been ordered (by Allah) to fight against the people until they testify that none has the right to be worshipped but Allah and that Muhammad is Allah's Apostle, and offer the prayers perfectly and give the obligatory charity, so if they perform a that, then they save their lives and property from me except for Islamic laws and then their reckoning (accounts) will be done by Allah."

Allah is the ancient Arab pagan moon god that only Satan would ordered Muhammad such an command to fight the people to convert them to worship Allah the pagan moon god.

God never spoke to Muhammad.

Muslims actions speak louder than words!

The Murder of the Old Woman from Fazara

The incident involves the actions of Muslims who were sent out by Muhammad on a raid against the Fazara tribe. The Muslims were initially defeated in their first encounter with the Fazara. The wounded Muslim leader swore vengeance. After he recovered he went out and attacked the Fazara again. One very old woman was captured. Here is the account from :

"....and Umm Qirfa Fatima was taken prisoner. She was a very old woman, wife of Malik. Her daughter and Abdullah Masada were also taken. Zayd ordered Qays to kill Umm Qirfa and he killed her cruelly (Tabari, by putting a rope to her two legs and to two camels and driving them until they rent her in two.) "

Guillaume, op cit, and page 665

Here, Muhammad's companions went out and attacked people, took some prisoners, then committed some brutal atrocities against their captives. These men were so destitute of basic human values, that they ripped an old woman in half by using camels! One wonders how many Muslims are intimately acquainted with the record of brutal killings Muhammad himself did or explicitly ordered, sanctioned, and justified. Muhammad and his followers seemed every bit as brutal as the worst humanity has ever produced.

But I am sure that you will not be able to show such thing at least for Vivekananda & Aurobindo. They are not false masters.

commands? you got confused. No most Christians dont follow Paul's "commands" cause there are no commands of Paul and anyway they dont follow Paul

Christians believe in Jesus I think even the name is self explanatory

02. Now instead of enlightening us about Christians belief you could just as well try and make make clear what muslims believe in; that makes their Allah different and better than YHWH --besides the Jesus touch of course which with objective observation is obvious that it's either
a. a truth that could not be avoided
b. just a technicality exactly to make it appear different
or both .
Ans.

01. Most of Christians "Recognize" Paul as the "Apostle appointed by Jesus" which is wrong in itself, because Paul never met jesus and never learned any thing from him.

It is Paul's letters on which entire Christian theology revolves.

Whatever he claimed for Jesus, most Christian believe in, that is what I called as "Commands" of St. Paul. If you do not like the word Command, you can use whichever word you like.

He is the main force behind the Christian theology and it is his arguments which Most Christians quote as "Final proofs".

02. I would be glad to inform you about what we Muslims believe in.

And the way you asked me to show that Allah is better than YHWH shows your fundamental misunderstanding.

We Muslims believe in the Same God which Jews and Christians believe in. There is only One God in the Universe to which all of us pray.

However there is some misunderstanding in the concept of God between Jews and Christians and Muslims,

What we Muslims believe in is the purest form of Monotheism, and we worship only God and do not associate any one else in His worship.

This is the starting point of our discussion on Islam.

We can go to next step, after we have clarified and understand each other on this first point, which is of extreme importance.

It does not matter, how much you try!!

You cannot prove that our prophet killed "every one" who did not believe in him!!

The casualty figures are everlasting proof for his methods of persuasion. Violence was the "last recourse".

And do not try to portray that Arabs of his time were cowards and did not know how to fight and were getting terrorized by some odd killings.

They were battle hardened people, only kindness and justice could win their hearts, and that was what our prophet gave them.
