Who Is Allah?

There are 228163 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?”

Shirk (Islam), in Islam, the sin of idolatry or associating beings or things with Allah.

Qur'an 33:36 "No Muslim has any choice after Allah and His Apostle have decided a matter."

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

Qur'an 4:80 "He who obeys the Messenger obeys Allah."

Qur'an 4:12 "Those who obey Allah and His Messenger will be admitted to Gardens to abide therein and that will be the supreme achievement. But those who disobey Allah and His Messenger and transgress His limits will be admitted to a Fire, to abide therein: And they shall have a humiliating punishment."

The Prophet Muhammad was never known to be a scientific genius. For the Muslim, the scientific miracle of the Quran is very comforting. It does not initiate faith, but it emphasizes it. Abraham, the father of the prophets had a similar experience narrated in Surah 2, Ayah 260. Abraham had complete faith in Allahís power, but he wanted, with Allahís permission, to authenticate his faith and soothe his mind and heart.
Abraham wanted to see the process of resurrection, so Allah asked Abraham to cut four birds into pieces and mix them together. Abraham divided the pieces into four equal portions and put each portion on the top of a mountain. Allah asked Abraham to call upon the birds. With the permission of God, the birds came flying. Similarly, the scientific miracles in the Quran comfort the Muslimís heart. But to the unbelievers, it is a tremendous challenge that they will never be able to explain.
(Contd.)
I have been reading up Islamic history and it stinks to high heaven(like all other history). Yazid after killing Hussain, burnt the Kaba to the ground - the Kaba that "prophet" Abraham had built. Abduallah Ibn Zubayr then undertook the project to re-build "god's house".

Then in Kufa we had another character called Mukthar the Deceiver who also claimed to be a prophet & seized the treasury of that city and distributed it among the poor. Ibn Zubayr then sent his brother Musab to defeat Mukthar. In the mean time, Ibn Zubayr had proclaimed himself "commander of the faithful". But he was not the only commander of the faithful because back in Syria, there this shaddy character named Marwan who was soon succeeded by his son Abd al Malik.

This Abd al Malik guy I am told, suffered from halitosis and wore golden dentures. He defeated Musab & had him killed. I have a strong feeling that it was during the period of Abd al Malik, that the Koran first began to be written down. It was during Ibn Zubayr's time that a coin was minted that read "bismillah Mohammad rasool Allah".

Defend the Crusades as an entirely reasonable response to centuries of Muslim persecution of Christians in the Holy Land, including the crucifixion and execution of pilgrims, and the plunder and destruction of churches -- 10,000 of them in the early eleventh century, including Jerusalem's Church of the Holy Sepulcher, traditional site of Christ's burial.

The best definition of Shirk, comes from Christianity, which makes the false claim that Jesus was the son of God and the absurd claim that Jesus was God. Christianity is a religion based upon Shirk.

To us, Muhammad, Jesus and Moses were men, who were obedient SLAVES of God.

Did Jesus tell anyone that he was God, clueless ignorant fool?

The man never said that he was God.

That Jesus is God, is BULLSHIT! Make it HORSE SHIT!

Shirk in Islam -associating a partner with Allah- is proven by the Shahada, the First Pillar of Sunni faith, wherein a person can't even be considered a Muslim if he does not profess that Mohammad is Allah's Messenger. This is also known as idolatry.

"Ashhadu an la ilaha illa 'llah; ashhadu anna Muhammadan rasulu 'llah"

"I witness that there is no god but Allah, and Muhammad is the messenger of Allah."

Quite hilarious!

It would have been shirk only if someone had said "Muhammad was the son of God" or "God's partner" or "God beside God".

In the Shahada, the person declares that there is only one God and that Muhammad was a messenger of God.

Wasn't I right when I had suggested earlier that you should go back to school?

Here is a question to everyone.

If I said before Adam no man was created, what would be your exhaustive understanding of my words?

I look forward to your responses.

PS---I will even overlook young Eric's suspension so as to accommodate whatever he is able to say.

I would say "Adam was the only man, who was created". Is that what you were expecting, HughBe?
