Who Is Allah?

There are 256284 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?”

PPS. BMZ If God were spreaking to the Angels, he would have never said OUR IMAGE or OUR LIKENESS. For he was creating man in his own image, not in the image of the Angels whom you presume he was speaking to. No. God was speaking to Jesus and the Holy Spirit - his image.

BMZ : Ford your information Hebrew and Arabic are sister languages and both have a lot of common words. Before Muhammad, God was called Adonai (NOT Adoni), HaShem, Elohim or Eloheinu, El.
----------
Elohim is used in the tanach. Eloheinu is just a form of the word El (also in the tanach) with the added "our" attached. i.e. Our God.
That Eloheinu means our lord I understood it yet since I can grasp a bit of semitic language. I don't understand why you wanted to clarify that.

Have you even managed to understand the Bible?
The God of Hebrews gave no name.
If you meet me and ask me my name and I tell you, "I am that I am", would you tell your friends and family that you met I am that I am? They will ridicule you and laugh at you.
Also, God did not say, "Moses, my name is I am that I am."
But how many times did the same discussion about the name of hebrews god came out, and how many times the Jews have never denied their god has a proper name which they are forbidden to pronunce?

Are you that dense?

The Bible declares that Jesus indeed is the image of God:
"But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost: In whom the god of this world (Satan)hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who IS THE IMAGE OF GOD should shine unto them." (2 Corinthians 4:3-4).
BMZ all I ask is that you pray that the True God will reveal himself to you! For like the verse above says Satan -the god of this world is blinding your spiritual eyes from seeing the truth!

Adonai is used for God Almighty and in translations, it is written as "LORD"
Christianity and her writers use Lord for God and Jesus. God, the Lord. Jesus, the Lord.
So, the clueless fools cannot differentiate. That is where you get this kind of absurd language in Christian translations:
"The Lord said to my Lord".
By the way, you will find it very interesting to know that according to Christian experts on Hebrew,
consider Adonai, the LORD also plural, just like the fools consider Elohim plural. They believe Adon is the singular but I think that is for the common lord, like lord Jesus.
Remember never to write LORD Jesus. That would be hilarious and absurd! No one does that.
Frijoles can explain better.
The Lord said to my Lord.

That happenes because Christians believe the Nazarene is god. You love too much escape from your nonsense but putting Christians, Christianty, Jesus ect in your post. You are obsesses with Christianity. Take a break.

Out of this nonsense the main point of discussion is that the god of hebrews has a proper name. If your god does not have it, then you are worshipping another god.

G-D blessed them, and G-D said to them, "be fruitful and multiply, fill the earth and subdue it: and rule over the fish in the sea, the bird of the sky, and every living thing that moves on the earth. ")"

it does not even say the word man, in that scripture. the only thing saying man, is your antiG-D vanity. none of you, are made in TheOUR IMAGE of G-D, get over it. G-D is only talking about TheSpecific Individual Adam, WHO is Both He And She.

So are you now saying that God is both a male and female? Are you now preaching duality? Or maybe you are calling God a hermaphrodite? Or are you saying God has a wife, like Allah did originally? I'm very confused now. Lol

Ps. BMZ you still did not explain why man can be three and yet one, but
God can't be according to you, even though we are made in his image?

The Image of God can be explained as simply as this - just as man's spirit, soul and body are three separate beings, yet ONE MAN. So is God three separate Beings, and yet ONE GOD, just as man's spirit and soul exist within his body. So does the Word of God(Jesus) and his Holy Spirit exist with in the Father for they are part of Him.

"For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one." (1 John 5:7).

Lies and deceptions?
"Hebrew" Bible??

Is it Christian Bible in Hebrew or the Books of True Monotheists who follow Judaism and who reject your mangod completely?

I believe this is from their books unless they say otherwise...

5. For a child has been born to us, a son given to us, and the authority is upon his shoulder, and the wondrous adviser, the mighty God, the everlasting Father, called his name, "the prince of peace."

more specifically, the key of knowledge given to Paul,
to Ephesians: "You have heard that I have been entrusted as keeper of the grace of God, to hand it out to you gentiles. Through revelation, Christ has given me understanding of the MYSTERION which in previous generations was hidden from men" -Paul, Eph 3:2-5

the secret mystery is: Jesus died for our sins! lol
this knowledge was unknown to Moses and the great prophets, but finally revealed to... Paul

Christians killed millions of their brothers in Christ but at that time, there was no internet and satellite television.
So, don't worry about Muslims killing each other. After a lot of killing, will come reconciliation.
The Holy Spirit is a hoax, Paul. It does not exist. What matters is how holy is your spirit or soul.
rabbee: well i am about as happy, at seeing muslems killing muslems. as i am seeing, the whole world worshiping only liars. which is the cause of all, hell and death on earth as it is in hell. did not have to happen, but all you liars make it so necessary.

You add nothing to the topic of who is allah. Is your position so indefensible that the only thing you can do to make your position look good is to try to make everyone else look bad? You have nothing, and even using yours own logic your position is indefensible.
You always resort to ad hominem, vain and carnal arguments that are very childish.
