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?”

Please explain how the kaba stone which fell from heaven can take away sins. But when we christian claim that Jesus Christ takes away sins, you reject him for a lifeless stone which you claim takes away sin.
That the black stone can take away sins, is an absurd story, which is as absurd as the claim that Jesus takes away sins. Jesus is not on record for saying that he takes away sins.

We do not believe that. This was clarified in Qur'aan that no soul shall carry the burdens of others or another.

" Proverbs 30:4 (700 B.C.): "Who hath ascended up into heaven or
descended?

Who hath gathered the wind in His fists?

Who hath bound the waters in a garment?

Who hath established all the ends of the Earth?

What is His name, and what Is HIS SON'S NAME if thou canst
tell?"
It is a series of questions put forward by a wise man to ignorant fools.

It means that no man and his son have done any of those things.

This proverb is a word of wisdom and has nothing to do with the Father and Jesus.

(Psalm 2:11-12) Serve the LORD with fear, and rejoice with trembling. KISS THE SON, lest he be angry, and ye perish from the way, when his wrath is kindled but a little. Blessed are all they that put their trust in him.
This is really a very twisted and distorted translation. It is wrong.

The problem with this is the forgery introduced "Kiss the Son".

It shows that if one would not kiss the son, the son will be very angry, full of wrath and can make people perish.

It can also mean that if one would not kiss the son, the LORD will be very angry, full of wrath and can make people perish.

But then, the LORD has no son.

I have studied this before. "Kiss the Son" is a forgery. The importance shown is that one must serve the LORD with fear.

It is not about serving and kissing the alleged Son.

Jesus did claim he had the power to forgive sins, and it is also true that only God can forgive sins, yet Jesus said:
"But that ye may know that the Son of man(humility) hath power on earth to forgive sins,(he saith to the sick of the palsy,) I say unto thee, Arise, and take up thy bed, and go thy way into thine house. " (Mark 2:10-11).

Does it really whether there is written in NT the Nazarene stated to be god or that in Quran Allah talked to Muhammad?

In the first case, if one finds in NT Jesus said to be god, the answer from Muslims will be that is a forgery attributed to the Nazarene, he never said that.

In the second case Christians will say that because Muhammad wrote so doesn't mean or prove god talked with him.

You have made so many posts only to make pointless points.

My compliments!

In another saying, Muhammad, the Prophet of God, said:

ďWhoever testifies that there in none worthy of being worshipped but God, Who has no partner, and that Muhammad is His slave and Prophet, and that Jesus is the Slave of God, His Prophet, and His word[1] which He bestowed in Mary and a spirit created from Him; and that Paradise (Heaven) is true, and that the Hellfire is true, God will eventually admit him into Paradise, according to his deeds.Ē(Saheeh Al-Bukhari) THATS WHAT MANY MUSLIMS BELIEVE IN

Another silly thing I found is that both the groups (Christians and Muslims) to defend their positions use as reference their books.

Both of them think they are right.

Anyone can write books and say on them whatever he wants. How is it possible to make a point only by citing one's book?

Use historical evidences to demolish the position of one's antagonist, instead of picking shallow verses from books

Non stavo dicendo che Maometto ha scritto il Corano, ma solo riportato quello che i Cristiani in questo forum dicono.

Che prove hai che Maometto ha scritto o no il Corano? Su cosa basi la tua affermazione?

I don't know how much you are fluent in Italian, but if you can't understand it I can repeat what I wrote in English.

I read both the Bible and Quran, they are but man made books.

Moreover they don't prove anything expect what I have just said.

HOW COULD THE PROPHET,IF U SAY THAT HE COULD HAVE BEEN WROTE IT KNOW ABOUT THE 11 PLANETS AND ABOUT,there is mentioned the arc of Noeh,about Adam and Eve,about Satan and the the rpophet couldnt neither read nor write so its impossible that he wrote it,also [This is] the revelation of the Book about which there is no doubt from the Lord of the worlds. Or do they say, "He invented it"? Rather, it is the truth from your Lord,[O Mohammad], that you may warn a people to whom no Warner has come before you [so] perhaps they will be guided".(Quran 32:2-3)∑ Quran speaks about a variety of branches of science like: Astronomy, Embryology, Hydrology, Geology, Sociology, Psychology, Oceanography, Law etc. Until the age of forty, there is NO historical account in his life that shows his scholarly tendencies or achievements in any of the spectrum of subjects the Quran deals with. How could such an illiterate man, suddenly, at the age of forty, bring about a book like the Quran which brought about an ideological and religious revolution that changed the face of history?∑ If Mohamed (peace be on him) had authored the Quran, why would he honor and mention Mary (May Allah be pleased with her), the mother of Jesus (peace be on him) and NOT mention his own family members?(NOTE: Quran does NOT have the names of any of the family members of Mohamed (peace be on him)? If he had authored the Quran, why would he disclose verses that reprimand him? Examples - 33:37 and 80:1-3 "It (Quran) is not except a reminder to the worlds. For whomever amongst you wish to take a right course." 81:27-28
"O mankind, worship your Lord, who created you and those before you, that you may become righteous" 2:21 ALSO HOW COULD MOHAMMED KNOW THE PROCESS OF CREATION OF A HUMAN,ALLAH SAID 12. And indeed We created man (Adam) out of an extract of clay (water and earth).

13. Thereafter We made him (the offspring of Adam) as a Nutfah (mixed drops of the male and female sexual discharge)(and lodged it) in a safe lodging (womb of the woman).

14. Then We made the Nutfah into a clot (a piece of thick coagulated blood), then We made the clot into a little lump of flesh, then We made out of that little lump of flesh bones, then We clothed the bones with flesh, and then We brought it forth as another creation. So blessed be Allah, the Best of creators. HOW COULD MOHAMMED SEEHOW A BABY WAS FORMED INSIDE A BELLY OF A MOTHER? IS THIS ENOUGH AS PROOF THAT MOHAMMED DIDN'T WROTE THE QURAN?

HOW CAN BE THE QURAN A MANKIND WHEN IT SAYS ABOUT THE PROCESS OF FORMATION AND CREATION OF A HUMAN? HERE R THE PROOFS:12. And indeed We created man (Adam) out of an extract of clay (water and earth).

13. Thereafter We made him (the offspring of Adam) as a Nutfah (mixed drops of the male and female sexual discharge)(and lodged it) in a safe lodging (womb of the woman).

14. Then We made the Nutfah into a clot (a piece of thick coagulated blood), then We made the clot into a little lump of flesh, then We made out of that little lump of flesh bones, then We clothed the bones with flesh, and then We brought it forth as another creation. So blessed be Allah, the Best of creators. SO IN OTHER WORDS,LOGICALLY,HOW COULD THE PROPHET KNOW WHAT WAS HAPPENING TO A BABY INSIDE HIS MOTHER ? WE MUSLIMS BELIEVE THAT GOD KNOW EVERYTHING AND THE ANSWER FOR WHAT I PROVED IS THAT THERE IS A GOD WHO KNOW WHAT WAS HAPPENING INSIDE THE MOTHER,THERE IS NO ANSWER BUT THIS,QUESTA SECONDO ME E` UNA DELLE MIGLIORI PROVE
