Who Is Allah?

There are 254865 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?”

By "actions of the last prophet" do you mean that the world will need to murder any and all critics of your "Last of Prophet," especially the Jewish poet critics, since that's what ordered "by Allah?"

GOSPEL OF BARNABAS:

Chapters 82-83 "Years of the Jubilee...every 100 years."

In the year A.D. 1300 Pope Boniface VIII instituted the Jubilee as a centenary (100 year) event. Previously it occurred every 50 years.

Pope Clement VI reversed Boniface's decision and celebrated the next Jubilee in 1350. This was the only time that the Year of Jubilee was intended as a centenary occasion.

GOSPEL OF BARNABAS:

Chapter 152 "Soldiers rolled out of the temple like casks of wood."

Wooden barrels were invented in Gaul (France) and were not used in the East in New Testament times. They used wineskins (Matthew 9:17).

By needing the "sayings of the last prophet," do you mean that the world needs to follow his ORDERS?

"Fight those who do not believe until they all surrender, paying the protective tax in submission." Qur'an:9:29

"Fight and kill the disbelievers wherever you find them, take them captive, harass them, lie in wait and ambush them using every stratagem of war." Qur'an:9:5

"When you clash with the unbelieving Infidels in battle, smite their necks until you overpower them, killing and wounding many of them. At length, when you have thoroughly subdued them, bind them firmly, making (them) captives. Thereafter either generosity or ransom until the war lays down its burdens. Thus are you commanded by Allah to continue carrying out Jihad against the unbelieving infidels until they submit to Islam." Qur'an:47:4

I mean, will you be glad when all of the "unbelieving infidels" of the world will have been murdered by your fellow Mohammadans?

'Jesus went to the sea of Galilee, and having embarked in a ship sailed to his city of Nazareth; whereupon there was a great tempest in the sea, insomuch that the ship was nigh unto sinking.'

One of the "actions of the last prophet" was to commit adultery with the wife of his adopted son, who conveniently divorced her when he noticed that Mohammad wanted her, badly.

I should add that BIBLICAL prophet Jesus frowned on adultery, but then, the "last prophet" abrogated all sorts of things that BIBLICAL prophet Jesus taught, which might be one reason why devout Muslims like Braindead and George have nothing good to say about him.

The Last Prophet abrogated all what brother Jesus did not teach.

For example, our dear Prophet rejected and condemned the Trinity or the triune God and clarified that God has no son and neither God is the father of Jesus.

In fact, brother Jesus, the son of Mary and our dear Prophet are in agreement with the following:

Jesus said, "You have heard that it was said,‘You shall not commit adultery.’ 28 But I tell you that anyone who looks at a woman lustfully has already committed adultery with her in his heart."

Here, you can see brother Jesus talking about Hijab of eyes. In other words, lower your gaze and stop looking into the eyes of a woman. Jesus thus discouraged staring. And that is what Qur'aan instructs men and women to do.

Our dear brother Jesus said many good things and one can find those in Matthew 5-7 and his parables only. Most of the bulk was not uttered by Jesus.

The son of Mary was a good man and he taught well but after he was gone, the writers and men, who penned the New Testament and formed the Church respectively, PERVERTED his teachings.

One can be accused of adultery, only when one screws a married woman, who is another's wife.

Zainab was a widow before she married Zayd.

Zayd was not a legally adopted son. The Prophet treated that slave as one loves a son. He was not even the Prophet's own slave.

After their marriage turned sour, Zayd divorced her.

The Prophet married her after their divorce.

So, there was no adultery committed.

The biblical Jesus was having fun with girls and women without even marrying them. You know jolly well that Jesus was maintained by women and was a man of women. The Church cleaned it up. So, you see a white-washed biblical Jesus.

Fool of a Lying Muslim,

Matt 5:31 "It was said,'WHOEVER SENDS HIS WIFE AWAY, LET HIM GIVE HER A CERTIFICATE OF DIVORCE'; 32 but I say to you that everyone who divorces his wife, except for the reason of unchastity, makes her commit adultery; and whoever marries a divorced woman commits adultery.

Wait, don't tell me. Let me guess.

Mohammad abrogated this prohibition on marrying a divorced woman because Jesus never taught it, or Zanaib was unchaste which is why Zaid divorced her, right?

As for your charge that Jesus was a fornicator, not even your adulterous "prophet" believed that about him.

Fool of a Lying Muslim,

You know this for a FACT because you were there.

Also, Mohammad did in FACT fly an invisible human/horse looking creature to heaven and back, while never physically leaving his bed. We know this is true because it's in the Qur'an!

Glory to (Allah) Who did take His servant for a Journey by night from the Sacred Mosque to the farthest Mosque, whose precincts We did bless,- in order that We might show him some of Our Signs: for He is the One Who heareth and seeth (all things).

—Qur'an, sura 17 (Al-Isra), ayah 1

Then he [Gabriel] brought the Buraq, handsome-faced and bridled, a tall, white beast, bigger than the donkey but smaller than the mule. He could place his hooves at the farthest boundary of his gaze. He had long ears. Whenever he faced a mountain his hind legs would extend, and whenever he went downhill his front legs would extend. He had two wings on his thighs which lent strength to his legs. He bucked when Muhammad came to mount him. The angel Jibril (Gabriel) put his hand on his mane and said: "Are you not ashamed, O Buraq? By Allah, no-one has ridden you in all creation more dear to Allah than he is." Hearing this he was so ashamed that he sweated until he became soaked, and he stood still so that the Prophet mounted him.

-Muhammad al-Alawi al-Maliki

Why is it absurd? Allah (pbuh) can do anything he wishes to, like when he given a son mother Mary by his will. Without god doing this, anything will be a hoax.
