Who Is Allah?

There are 224864 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?”

rabbee: you failed to include, the f,c,k,r scalar for the temp.
international agreement, absolute zero is defined as 0K on the kelvin scale and as &#8722;273.15C on the celsius scale. this is equal to &#8722;459.67F on the fahrenheit scale, and 0 R on the rankine scale. so far scientists have achieved temperatures, very close to the alleged absolute zero. but as of yet, have failed to achieve that temperature in order to confirm it. thus absolute-zero, is still only a theretical estimate by agreement only. and so with present technology, it is not possible to verify this as fact.
and as for veneers, and other composites, the glue used is dependant on how it is to be used. from using cheaper soluable glues for dry locations in use. and more expensive insoluable and mold resistant glues for damper locations, even possibly including thermo-plastic or ceramic laminants for wet locatons.
so what is your point, as one ignorant fool, calling some one else what you also are? when it all sounds like, all vain hyprocricy to me. as in trying to portray yourself, as a superior knowledgeable expert, so have you also failed. as you use your idolitry, to try and stereotype someone elses alleged idolitry. with the old try to baffle em, with the extra-curricular bs theory.
but f,c,k, r are NOT in your Torah AND to be ignored right?

There you go rabbee.... now you are forced to eat your own words and wonder how they taste for a change!!!

hello clueless bu(ttturdlick)ford...it is slightly better than the "slave god of non-gentiles", who HATES gentiles as dogs and pigs, comes to earth in human form as his own son, to die for the sins of "gentiles" because he promised the "sinless non-gentiles" the ringside seats to all the fun in the kingodm!!!

Neither Islam is a threat to the world nor the entire world is a threat to Islam and Muslims.

Go and visit Muslim countries and see the Muslim women living like queens in their houses, tribal areas excluded.

He was already praised by God Almighty, so how can you ask me foolishly not to praise him.

Ridiculing others, when reading their unintelligent responses, cannot be considered as arrogance.
In such cases, ridicule is the best course. And Buford does not understand this.
You are welcome bro, any time!
I agree totally...when their intention is to ridicule at any cost without stopping to even think, then our response does not have to comply with this:
" Invite (all) to the Way of thy Lord with wisdom and beautiful preaching; and debate/discuss/argue with them in ways that are best and most gracious." Noble Qur'n 16:125

Your "doubts" will not becomes facts. That is why I said an "expert" like you is not in the market to get info from novices like us.
You have doubts, which turn into your opinion and they become your views and then they become a fact.
You are entitled to live in your world.
My doubts are influenced by lack of evidence. When you dont have evidence for something, you obviously doubt. Your responses are based on faith and not evidence, and that is why I grill you guys. You refuse to dig below the surface and accept things at face value which to me is not good enough.

By the way, my response about Mohammad's circumcision was more or less cut and paste from an Islamic web-site written by your co-religionist. I had nothing to do with it.

<quoted text>I have sympathy for Jews because Mohammad hated them and killed any number of them for ridiculing him. His "perfectly" bloody example inspires Hamas TODAY.
I have more sympathy for Jews than any of you, because the gospels and other books of the New Testament created such a hatred for them that the European Christians killed millions under the name of their so-called 'loving' Jesus.

Jesus did not hate the Jews and neither was he a self-hating Jew. His language sending woes upon the Jews, was figurative and so was the language of Qur'aan.

Now, how many millions of 'Banu' Israel were killed by the European Christians, compared with the the Banus of Arabia, killed for treachery and fighting against Muslims, when the Banus went along with pagans?

ISLAMIC EXPLICATION OF THAT VERSE:

[In the gradual revelation of the Qur'an some verses have been abrogated (Mansukh) by the order of Allah (Glory be to Him the Most High), and replaced with others (naskh). As is well known the Koran fell in twenty-three years according to the needs of the Islamic community that was forming. In this context, Allah (Glory be to Him the Most High) would have it, a few verses (mostly related to legal issues, institutional and never doctrinal) become superseded and replaced them with others. After the conclusion of the Revelation, the Koran assumed the characteristics of immutability which is one of his miracles. The question of the abrogated and the abrogating was used by detractors of the Envoy of Allah (peace and blessings be upon him) to accuse him of counterfeiting.

IOW, the new verses DIDNT abrogate all the past scriptures but the ones in Quran. As expected you are always ready to making things up.

Furthermore this and other verses that talk about abrogation of the old verses on the same book are the proof that Allah is not perfect and all knowing, IOW it's a fake god. Good to know the proof of that is in Quran and not elsewhere.

Item 1, agreed.
Item 2, agreed, because all fragments, etc had been burned or destroyed by Uthman, Ali and Company.
Item 3, there were no original manuscripts of Qur'aan at that time, as it had not been compiled.
Item 4, do not agree.
Item 5. There is no need for any evidence. The same has been repeated for a thousand plus years.
Item 6. That was not an important requirement. He was not a king.
Item 7: No verses of Qur'aan have been abrogated. If verses had been abrogated, they would have been deleted.
Shias, Sunnis and all other sects have and read exactly the same Qur'aan.
People have been rattling the Koran ever since it was put to print and distributed all over the world. According to Ibn Mujahid there were approx 07 qiraats (readings of the Koran) while others claim that there were 14. It wasn't until July 1924 when the Egyptian govt decided to throw all existing Korans into the River Nile and re-edit the whole Koran and that is the Koran which we have in our hands today.

None of us know what type of Koran existed between 610-710 AD and how much of it. You have no proof that the Koran we have today was the same Koran people were reciting back then. You have no proof as to how much of the Koran was actually dictated by Mohammad? I doubt if all the narratives in the Koran come from him. Caliph Osman allegedly sent copies of the Koran to Kufa, Basra, Damascus and elsewhere, what happened to those copies? The theory that Osman burnt Korans comes from a much later tradition for which there is no evidence. There are too many unanswered questions. Your replies are based more on blind faith than they are on evidence.

I doubt if there were too many verses written down until that Gov Hajjaj came to power - I could be wrong. The Sana manucripts date back to that period - early 8th CE. "Allah" knows best how much editing and interpolation was undertaken by the Umayyads as those bast@rds were not to be trusted. And what do you mean that there is no abrogation in the Koran? What about the science of Naskh wal Mansukh, are you saying it's all bull@hit?

rabbee: can you prove anything i said, as untrue today? since everything today is, all happening here in TheStory of Creation again. and do you know what, G-D calls this Story of Creation again? though it is true, nothing i said in that post is relavent to your or anyone elses redemption. it never the less, is all taking place here in TheTorah. and if i said it, it is only because i am truly here again, in ThisStory of Creation agains'es.

any pagan idiot can call themselves a true believer to their other g-d/s. but that does not make you a true believer, to TheG-D of this whole same story again. your off in some fantacy ficticious la-la land called the quran. but i am here in TheReality of G-D, giving This Story of Creation again called TheTorah. precisely like it says, for this condesending world not here in IT.

you bragging and gloating rights of the quran, mean less than your nothing doing, actually here in TheTorah today. and i am sorry if you are having a hard time, admitting you have been conned by the subtle beasts of the fields. that even i had, to swallow my pride and to admit myself because you all helped your grandmother to trick me again. as you cannot possibly, feel more embarassment than i about being decieved.

Where is it recorded that "God Almighty" praised Mohammad? Why, it's recorded in the Qur'an, which also happens to be the record of what Mohammad dictated to his scribes, which is why it MUST BE TRUE!

Thank you for that. Apologies for not picking this post up.
Sadly many are so deeply immersed in customs traditions and bit players, they forget the main purpose of submitting to the Will of God in peace in search of peace.
I have been a bit lucky. I first looked for God in the OT and NT and then took the next logical step of finding God in Islam.
