Who Is Allah?

There are 20 comments on the Aug 24, 2007, The Brussels Journal story 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?”

Just because all the other versions of the koran were burnt does not mean you now have the original.
mohammad never wrote anything and his biographies were written a hunderd years after he was dead. So what assurance do you have the koran you have came from mohammad? Oh, your going on the memories of old men, well we know how reliable that is.
The Christian Bible is the only book that has versions.

It is true that Muhammad did not write anything but he had men to write for him and he recited out,
They recorded.

In the case of Jesus, there was nobody to write down anything. Poor man had no scribe as all his disciples were ignorant fools.

After he had disappeared from the scene and was long gone, people wrote ridiculous and absurd tales about him.

Taht is the difference.

Jesus has given His Catholic Church the Holy Spirit to guide her in all Truth. We now have God's teachings contained in the Cathecism of the Cathoic Church. islam has nothing from God, mohammad claimed he talked to a angel he thought was a demon until a women told him it wasn't a demon. What did that woman know? The satanic verse were removed from the koran.

That's pretty much similar to the history of Quran.

There have been different versions of Quran.

The original manuscripts of Quran that should have been kept well preserved, were misteriously disappeared.

After Muhammad disappeared from the scene long ago, Omar burnt all the different versions of Quran and kept and widespread ridiculous and absurd stories and tales copied and pasted by different books and hearsay available in Baghdad at that time, and gathered all them together into one book called Quran.

Since the biographies of mohammad were written a hundred years after he was dead means those stories about him reciting the koran to others is probably false.

There were MANY versions of the koran before someone rewrote it and burnt all the other versions. There is no proof the koran you use now is the same one mohammad supposedly recited.

Don't forget about the satanic verses being removed from the koran.

What does it matter? The book as approved by the Catholic Church is what is inspired. Jesus promised the Catholic Church the Holy Spirit to lead it in Truth.

I have already told you that the Christian Bible is the only book that has versions.

They have thousands of manuscripts and not even two are same. Satanic verses can only be found in the New Testament, Paul and this is a fact which you cannot deny!

If you don't believe me, then read Hebrews and see how many Satanic verses fill that book in. You will be shocked.

We're talking about the koran, or do you not have a defense for it? You know you can not support any claim that it came from mohammad.

When were the satantic verses taken out of the koran?

Anxiously waiting your reply!

The prophet Joseph Smith has a much better story on how he got the Book of Mormons. He said he copied it from Golden Tablets that are now in Heaven. Also the prophet Joseph Smith did not have to claim the Holy Bible was corrupt. If I was to choose between the koran and the Book of Mormons being from God based on the story behind them I would chose the Book of Mormons.

As expected he was not able to prove me wrong in the other post. Ironically you attacked the Bible, right where Quran is in the same shit.

You are a closet Jewish, but inside you have a lot of shit to say about Judaism, but you prefer to keep for yourself...

I'm not "closet anything", but I don't like hypocrite, coward, braindead, lier people like you. So you are my target here.

Also it's not xtian, but xian.

Did I steal your words? Since when you own words?

Did I tu quoque? Indicate me where?

So basically you have no idea.

An important work "approved" by your holy church and you have no idea what language it was in. Not impressed with your biblical education.

Very sad.

You say its in its native language why did you ask me what language it was written in? Are you just assuming it in the native language since you apparently don't know what the native language it was written in.

You have yet to say what difference it makes what language it was written in?
