Who Is Allah?

There are 230572 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?”

Not impressed! Just a few relevant points:
Maseehee is the Arabic word for Christian and yes it came from Maseeh in Arabic, for the English equivalent Messiah.
Nasaara has nothing to do with Nazarene or Nazareth or Nazarite.
YHWH or YHVH or Yahweh is NO name. Check it out from members of the Jewish faith and those, who know the real Hebrew, not the Hebrew4Christians.
Yahweh simply means "He, the one" or "He who is".
rabbee: well if YHVH in english, or YHWH in german, is not a name. then why do they substitute, HaShem, TheName or DerName for it?

and the word for HE is HOO, TheOne is HaEchad, and He who is MaHoo. so apparently muslem hebrew, is not that good of and eevreet lie either. and She is HEE in eevreet.

now shall i give you a hint: as to YHVH'S real meaning? the vave directly before a noun means the word and. so it is Y-H AND H. and if you translated that into english, it would be R is H AND S. essencially TheTetragrammen YHVH is an anacronym. where you take the first letter of every word, to make it.

now shall i give you another hint, that the first letter means Redemption in english, Retung in german, or transliterated hast to be Yeshooah in english. because of the femine ending, in TheTetragrammen.

now you have more than enough information here, to figure out what TheTetragrammen states. let's see how smart, any of you are.

Looking at your "HE is HOO, TheOne is HaEchad,", it should then be HHE, courtesy English.

Rabbee, listen to me, please. YHVH or YHWH is no name.

In fact, when God said, if God really had said, "I am who I am", God was reprimanding Moses or was telling him not to ask for God's name because God has no name.

God also did not tell him, "My name is Hashem or El or G-d or YHVH, etc". God simply stopped him by saying, "I am who I am".

Thanks for blowing up YHVH and YHWH both. lol!

It is funny that you question and provide answers, which you fail to understand.
Wrong!
It wasn't said and it wasn't written : "Thou shall not take the name of the Lord."
It was said and it was written: "Thous shall not take the name of thy LORD in vain."
That means, one shall not take the name of the LORD in vain deeds, false oaths, false swearing, etc.
Moses was calling the LORD most of the time. If you read Jewish Scriptures, you will find instructions to remember the LORD and teach/preach/pray, etc., while sitting, standing and lying down.
When praying to the LORD was not forbidden, how could calling the name of the LORD fall in VAIN?
Do people pray to the LORD by spelling out a G, a hyphen and a D?
God is not the son of a man or a man to have a name. You can give beautiful names to God and there is no harm. Moses called God Almighty LORD, which is Adonai in Hebrew.
<quoted text>
You are the one, who mentions it, so you should ask. If I were wrong, the members of Jewish faith would have certainly posted a note to correct me.
Where do you see G-d in here?
http://www.mechon-mamre.org/e/et/et0101.htm
http://www.chabad.org/library/bible_cdo/aid/8...
I think you want to turn around the point without face it.

If you think that if you were wrong the Jews would have pointed out this yet, then according to your logic I am not wrong as well, since none of them told am wrong. But aside this, I do remember in the past that they admitted YHVH is its name and in an occasion MAAT correct you giving me right. Now rabbee this is part by correcting you.

Is this what there is written? "You shall not take the name of the Lord, your God, in vain, for the Lord will not hold blameless anyone who takes His name in vain."

The question is the following, which name the god his lord does not want to be said/pronunced in vain?

I have asked you a few questions first.
Instead of dodging them by asking me questions, try answering them first.
While at it, tell me exactly what the Jewish rules are?
Why is that only you can follow these. Why can't others follow the same rules to be fully paid up members of the Jewish religion or was it race?
Thank you.
I answered your questions. You asked for which of the 3 choices I belonged to. I said no. 1. You don't like the answer, but I'm not hear to feed you the answers you want.

You asked for how people could become full fledged members of Judaism, I gave you an example. We don't seek converts. We don't force converts. But, we don't reject converts either.

So, in Islam, what are the "few rules". The Thread is waiting for you to "Fill the room with your intelligence".

rabbee: well apparently your source, and my SOURCE are in disagreement. and my SOURCE, IS G-D. so what is yours, that is not from G-D HIMSELVES? cause i know what, I-SHALL-BE came and said to me. or do you think, that a son from a family with an athiest step father. figured this all out on his own, without any true help from G-D HIMSELVES. as it is obvious, i did not get any of this, from the world either.

as i even realize you do not accept, THE DESCRIPTION OF G-D GIVEN TO ADAM. with G-D as my only, True REDEMPTION. as your attempt to derail or side-rail the discussion, have failed. as G-D gave TheWhole Torah to Moshe, on mt seeanee. and it has all TheNames and Descriptions of G-D in IT. and even included, the future events of Moshe and TheMultitudes in it.

and it took Moshe a while, to realize just like me. there is nothing we can do to change it once G-D is told Our Story. i know the fustration of Moshe, cause i been there through it too myself. only G-D HIMSELVES can make changes to ThisStory of Creation. so if i can convince you all to sin no more, then maybe just maybe this will encourage G-D to make some changes. otherwise were just spreading out, more misery to this whole miserable world.

Hello, Mahmood
That is really silly and an absurd reasoning.
Were you really ever a Muslim before? If you were a Muslim, as you say, is that the way you read out the "shahadah"?
No Muslim ever reads or says or declares this way: "Mohammadan Rasool Allah". Crazy! You cracked me up!
Muslims will say: Muhammadur-Rasoolal-lah
The Midevil anti-Islam folks, I mean the Medieval Christian Crusaders and the folks of the modern Christianity started calling Muslims, Mohammadans because those ignorant fools thought of Muslims as his followers only.
The point is that your argument was wrong and you made it up. You shot your own foot!
I went to majalises, did matam, grieved for Hussain & his family, all for nothing. And you are right, it is actually Mohammad-ur-rasool allah. We also went one step further, we said "Ali an waliullah, wasi an rasool allah". I dont care what Christians called you, but you guys are Mohammadans. I say this because I firmly believe that Allah is Mohammads alter ego, at least in the Koranic sense. I guess I read the shahadah all wrong throught my life, but what does it matter now. As far as I am concerned, Islam is just another dessert cult.

I would advise you to read this wonderful book called "The Evolution of God" by Robert Wright. In it he says "And as for the business about Moses leading Hebrews out of bondage: There was no mass Exodus from Egypt writes Frinkelstein".

He then goes to say "But some biblical historians now doubt that Moses even existed, and virtually none now believe that the biblical accounts of Moses are reliable. These stories were written down centuries after the events they describe....."

I was once at a seminar in Toronto and the lecturer was Norman Stillman from the Univ of Oklahoma. I asked him if Moses ever existed and did he write the Torah. His answer to me was that from a theological perspective he did all of the above but if examined from a scientific perspective, none of it is true.

So you see brother bmz, stories about Khider, Moses, two horned one, Gog Magog, Jonah, Lot, She Camel, Ad & Thamud, Sodom & Gamorah, Uzair, dessert wondering for 40 years, armies drowning, sleeping for 300 years etc are excellent bedtime stories for children. Had my kids been younger, I would have relied on the Koran to keep them entertained.

You can correct me and then I will not call you a monkey!
Similarly I am correcting you here:
I am a Muslim and not Muhammedan.
So address me properly.
My religious book is referred to as The Quran not koran/coran.
Until then you can keep posting from anti muslim sites posing as an ex muslim!
Rasool...is NOT God!
You must first go away and understand what Islam is!!
"Submission in peace to the Will of God (not of Muhammed)in pursuit of peace"
A Muslim is the person who submits in peace to the Will of God (not of Muhammed) in pursuit of peace"
A mohammdan is a derisory term and you know it -just like koran/coran is.
Is Muhammad or Muslim or a Muhammdan?
Are you suggesting that only Muhammed was a Muslim and all are muhammadan?
You really are a moron.
What I am suggesting is that Allah is Mohammad's alter ego and that is why I call you guys Mohammadans. If you read the Koran, Allah is just pawn in this whole grand scheme of Mohammad's. You guys see god as having tailored the Koran's different verses to the varying circumstances Mohammad would encounter. My assumption in contrast is that Mohammad himself was doing the tailoring - even if often unconsciously and even if convinced god was doing it.

That is why I have told you many times that all the past events came through the generations of people, who were in the region. The subject of History and the historians arrived long, long after.
Same goes for archaeologists.
Go researach the Torah and find out for yourself. Oral tradition is not history and human memory is unrealiable and for this reason, the Koran is suspect as well. I doubt if Mohammad wrote the whole Koran.

Mohammad, being ILLITERATE, as some Muslims believe, didn't write any of the KORAN. Rather, he dictated it while his devoted scribes, a.k.a., MOHAMMADANS, recorded what he said.

I should add that devout MOHAMMADANS believe that the KORAN is the pure and unadulterated word of Allah, as though Mohammad was simply a human radio tuned to Allah's frequency, he himself having no input into or veto power over what was "revealed" by Allah via Jibreel. This is why MOHAMMADANS fly into murderous frenzies whenever the KORAN is desecrated. It is as though Allah HIMSELF (yes, the masculine pronoun is preferred in Islam) has been harmed, and of course, all such insults to the Majesty MUST BE AVENGED BY THE SLAVES!!!@!@!!!@
