Who Is Allah?

There are 254782 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?”

My dear Frijoles greetings to you and to your fellow rear-centric beings including your rabbis.

While at it, let me say greetings to my fellow normals.

Now dear, please explain "you shall have no other gods before me". What is the meaning of "before me"?

Mr. Templer
God day .

I want ask you in our world fact "please be honest"
How many people was killed in first world war and second world war ?
How Many people was killed in Iraq by America warmy ?
How many people was killd in Palstine by Israil Warmy?
How may people was killd in Fetnam By American Warmy?
How many people was killd In algeria by France Warmy?
How many pelple was killd in libya by Italy Warmy ?

Mr Templar we need to kill all of that warmes not those people who are in thier house .
I hope understnd me
in the end please read my whoe quran :[256] There is no compulsion in religion. Verily, the Right Path has become distinct from the wrong path. Whoever disbelieves in Tâghût and believes in Allâh, then he has grasped the most trustworthy handhold that will never break. And Allâh is All-Hearer, All-Knower.

Like all muslims you know Fuck all about the koran. What about "abrogation"? Ever heard of that?

You just proved my conviction that Christianity, her scripture, her Church were brought up by lying polemicists, who raised and brought up polemic Christians on the basis of a lying culture. You are a perfect example of that lying culture.

You misquoted verse 33:26 truly like a lying Christian Father. LMAO!

The actual translation is: "and He brought down from their strongholds those of the followers of earlier revelation who had aided the aggressors, and cast terror into their hearts: some you slew, and some you made captive; "

And this verse demolishes Bukhari!

Note the verse says: SOME YOU SLEW AND SOME YOU MADE CAPTIVE.

So, there weren't many!

Did the pagans Arabs worship the sun, moon and the stars? Yes

Did the Arabs built temples to the Moon-god? Yes

Did different Arab tribes give the Moon-god different names/titles? Yes

What were some of the names/titles? Sin, Hubul, Ilumquh, Al-ilah.

Was the title “al-ilah”(the god) used as the Moon-god? Yes

Was the word “Allah” derived from “al-ilah?” Yes

Was the pagan “Allah” a high god in a pantheon of deities? Yes.

Was he worshipped at the Kabah? Yes.

Was Allah only one of many Meccan gods? Yes

<quoted text>I wonder about the Zaqqum tree that grows in Islamic hell. Its fruit, shaped like devils' heads (Qur'an 37:65), is the food of those who die in disbelief of "Our verses," meaning the verses of Allah/Jibreel/Mohammad,(AJM) a.k.a., the Most Holy Trinity of Islam.
I'd be remiss if I didn't mention that in Islamic hell the dead disbelievers (Jews, Christians, Hindus, Zoroastrians, Rastafarians and Pastafarians, etc.) ALSO get to drink boiling water and have their skins burned off and replaced with new skins forever and ever and ever and ever...
The short of it is that AJM is VERY GOOD at inflicting cruel and unusual eternal punishments, or at least threatening them.
What happened is this:

Brother Jesus threatened people with hell and eternal damnation and fire, etc.

However, as usual he forgot to go into details as he wasn't given much information. Six hundred years later, Qur'aan gave the details through our Prophet.

Forget the fruit. Read the Revelation drug store for a bloodied lamb with seven horn and seven eyes. Sounds like a devil. Right?

Buford is the only lying Christian here. I do not wish to call you that.

Why did you not quote 5096? Here it is:

"C5096. To show Allah in human shape, or imagine sons or daughters of Allah, as if Allah were flesh, was in any case a derogation from the supreme glory of Allah, high above all creatures, even if the human shapes were invested with great beauty and majesty as in the Greek Pantheon. But when we consider in what low opinion Pagan Arabia held the female sex, it was particularly degrading to show Allah, or so-called daughters of Allah, in female shapes. "

What about 5097 from YA in his commentary?

" C5097. Cf. 7:71; 12:40 , n. 1693.

The divine names which they give to stocks and stones, or to heroes living or dead, or even to prophets and men of God, are but the creations of their own fancy. Whatever they were, they were not gods."

Who are the liars, who compiled that silly and idiotic list?

The only difference between the pagan Arabs and Christianity was that the pagan Arabs ascribed daughters to God, while the Christians, just like the pagans, ascribed a son to God.

They killed non-gentiles in their millions and they do the same to Muslims now.
That does not mean they will not do the same to non-gentiles next time.
Please resd my past posts.
I have quoted from Pro non gentile sites as well as anti non- gentile sites.
There has always been a balance.
Remember this Frijoles, I have MANY close decent non-gentile family friends.
You know as well as I do, the behaviour of some thugs who have hijacked Palestine is causing most of the problems between the two semitic races.
To begin with, call us Jews. Thats what we call ourselves. Unless you are incapable of even that attempt of respect.

Then, perhaps, then, I might reconsider not labeling you a Jew hater.

Using scriptures ONLY define who is a Jew.
Using scriptures ONLY tell me if God made any covenants with a people called Israel/Jews.
Using scriptures ONLY tell me when did the seed of Israel become Israelites.
Here is help:"And Pharaoh sent, and, behold, there was not one of the cattle of the ISRAELITES dead. And the heart of Pharaoh was hardened, and he did not let the people go." Exodus 9:7
Using basic common sense ONLY tell me who are Israelites.
Finally, quote the scripture that supports the idea that Jacob's name was changed to ISRAEL because of a COVENANT. In other words, demonstrate that the name Israel came about because of a COVENANT.
Nope

I like to be corrected if I am wrong but when we say 'some he slew and some he made captive' it does not mean they were few in numbers. The word 'some' in this case clearly means that a proportion of the vanquished were killed, in this case the males, and another proportion of the vanquished, women and children, were taken as captives. It does not refer to any specific numbers.

NO, NO, NO.
That is what you have been brainwahed into thinking.

All the Bible Contadictions have been answered and no longer exist. If you believe the Bible has been edited, why did they leave all the contradictions in? Give me a contradiction and I'll look for the answer.

I can show you a Quran that was translated in 1880 with the words 'It is He who made the earth FLAT for you...'. All later translations have the word 'SUBSERVIENT' where 'FLAT' should be, so don't tell me that Quran hasn't changed.

PROVE TO ME THAT BIBLE HAS BEEN CORRUPTED! Prove to me that someone had enough money to gather every biblical manuscript in the world, change it, then give it back unnoticed.
