Who Is Allah?

There are 254845 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?”

Frijoles---I posted FIVE - count them FIVE posts -explaining what I really meant by "ummm" and you keep deleting all mention of that.

HughBe--- Why not explain what you meant when you said YES to the question of FABRICATION by the rabbi? Why should I focus on "ummm"?

Below is YOUR entire post 158037. Tell me, do you see the word YES to my question about Rabbi Raphael FABRICATING the things that he wrote? YES. Explain the YES and not the "ummm"

Note, post 158037 shows that YOU did say that the esteemed rabbi FABRICATED the things that he wrote. You are DISHONEST, LYING, IDIOTIC and DECEPTIVE. Note your DECEPTION " I posted FIVE ...posts -explaining what I really meant by "ummm" and in saying this you lead others away from the FACT that you did say YES to the question of the rabbi FABRICATING his work.

POST 158037 follows.
HughBe--- Are YOU telling me that Rabbi Raphael, a TOP historian of Jewish history, and a man who "for the last generation .. has been the EDITOR of the quarterly journal, American Jewish HISTORY" FABRICATED the information that he wrote?
.

Frijoles----Um...YES

You have no understanding how the academic enterprise works.

Some one publishes something, Some one else examines, it, improves on it, criticizes it, etc etc...thats how progress is attained

I would be MUCH more impressed if YOU read BOTH books and came back with an informed critique or opinion on the issue, rather than defending an older work and ignoring future works.

You have a weak approach

HughBe--- Not only are you a LIAR you are a total JACKASS. I take it that in your world where jackasses live YES means NO.

MUQtard,

In case you missed it, the word "Muslim" does not mean one who submits to Mohammad.

There goes clueless troll again!!
Tabari is NOT God but hats off!
Simply look at the wisdom!!!!
Arabs have PROVED to the world that THEY are INDEED Noble.
They did NOT "edit"/"correct " God's revelation to turn Allah into a tribal racist bigoted antigentile slave god of Arabs to keep Allah for themselves!!!!!!!
Thanks to the NOBLE Arabs...they made sure that Allah gave the book to ALL mankind....so there!!!
WORTH REPEATING.....
NON-GENTILES MISTAKENLY LISTENED TO THEIR BIGOTED MASTERS.. MADE A SLAVE OF GOD...AND DESTROYED GENTILES UTTERLY WHILE SELFISHLY HOLDING ON TO THEIR "RELIGION" WITHOUT GIVING IT TO GENTILES WITH EQUAL RIGHTS......
MANY NOBLE ARABS SACRIFICED THEIR LIVES TO PASS ON THE MESSAGE OF GOD TO FELLOW HUMANS ON EQUAL TERMS AND THAT IS WHY ISLAM IS STILL GROWING.
Why can't you call us Jews?
We love being the superior ones.

If you do that, Eric, you will be Equal or EVEN better than me in the eyes of ALLAH!!!
I'm listening, Alex. How does one accept the Will of the True G-d?

What are the minimal requirements?

Tell me that the minimal requirement is not becoming a Muslim.

Tell me if a Baha'i who follows his faith has accepted the Will of the True G-d? As far as the Jews are concerned, a Baha'i who follows his faith is accepted by G-d.

And, being accepted by G-d is the ultimate position. There can be nothing greater than being accepted by G-d.

Surely, if a person is more pious than me, then i am happy to say, "he/she is a better Muslim than me"...now that is supposed to be sign of humility too.
Peace.
This is exactly of which I speak. The minimal requirement of piety necessary as far as you are concerned is to become a Muslim. No other people on earth--no matter what else they believe--are acceptable to G-d. Everyone else in the world is going to one of the gates in Muslim Jahannam. Only Muslims get to go to Jannah. You either become a Muslim or go to Jahannam.
