Who Is Allah?

“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?”

I can see that you are struggling with this concept of squeezing unlimited GOD into a limited man.
Everytime you refer to "jesus" you refer ONLY to a man but you refuse ditch him from your image of GOD.
We are not talking abut men or doves. Those are in YOUr "bible"!
We have no problem with forcing a man on GOD or vice versa.
GOD and man are not the same.
This is why I gave you the story of a HUMAN pig farmer who took on the form of a pig to die for the sins of pigs. I know the story may have sounded absurd and insulting but it was to make a point.
It insults both man and pig.
Similarly the story about NON HUMAN GOD taking on the form of human is an insult to both GOD and man.
You need to reflect on this before you eventually become a Muslim.
Peace.
Does allah have a brain? Eyes? Ears? Anxiously waiting your reply.

USE THIS TEST ON ANYTHING...AND IF A "THING" PASSES THE TEST THEN THAT "THING" IS GOD:

*** GOD, The ONE and ONLY.

*** GOD, the Eternal, Absolute in existence, not temporal or conditional or not dependant on any person or thing, but all persons and things are dependant on GOD.

*** GOD begets not, nor is GOD begotten.

*** And there is none like unto GOD."

We can call the above - the touchstone of theology.
Any candidate to divinity must be subjected to this Ďacid testí using the unique attributes of GOD, so that false gods and pretenders to divinity can be easily dismissed.

I am sorry BJ gets booted without a question as god.

This must come as a complete shock to you..The Holy Quran does not promote any Muslim sect or something called "salafi" or even "gadafi"!
If Quran refers to "hand" (eg: action/might/will) or "throne" (power/sovereignty/kingdom) of god it does not mean to real hands or throne!
The noun here should be seen in terms of adverbial clauses adjectives, verbs etc.

Allow me repeat for clarity....

If you pulled this from the koran we can dismiss it since you've not proven the koran is of divine origin. Once having satanic verses in it makes it most like from the devil.
