Who Is Allah?

There are 252780 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?”

P.S. God has taught me, thank you for your lovely comments, Alex.

I see what you're saying. It took me time, but as one tries to understand the mysterious, the above conclusions are what one must arrive at.
Hello NQ!
Thank you for your nice post that made me smile loads!
I am glad that my many versions of "god" are beginning to make some sense.
These are not meant to be insults but just a request from these poor folks to point out their god/gods from the list.

You have lost the plot skeptic.
YOU worship THREE DEMONS...daddy..sonny and ghosty.
Indeed!

It is true that the triune God was created by Demons and pagans.

The Demons knew Jesus best. I am sure you must have noticed that only Demons and Pagans called Jesus, Son of God.

Remember this: " Moreover, demons came out of many people, shouting, "You are the Son of God!" But he rebuked them and would not allow them to speak, because they knew he was the Messiah."

And this: "Now the centurion, and those who were with him keeping guard over Jesus, when they saw the earthquake and the things that were happening, became very frightened and said, "Truly this was the Son of God!" "

One can see claerly that only the demons and the pagan Romans believed that he ws the the son of God, while the locals did not.

Muslims worship only Allah, the LORD Almighty God of Abraham.
On the other hand, Jesus was and still is worshipped by demons and pagans.
You lie Muslim.
Muhammad;s religion has no connection to Abraham, and Moses.
Ishmael abandoned the God of Israel, the Jews went to war against the tribes of Ismael.
Muhammad never worshiped the God of Israel.
You lie Muslim.

That is how battles were fought back then. If one did not kill one would be killed. You wanted Allah ordering Muslims, "Do not resist and get killed!"
If that was the modus operandi back then there was no reason for Allah to order it.

It's laughable that a god would order things, even cruel because that is how battles were fought back then.

Moreover if your god is almighty he would have avoid any war and resolved things totally in another manner. But Muhammad, hmm sorry I mean Allah only acts and thinks as a human being...

Tell me something. Two Italian marines are under trial in India for killing two Indian fishermen. Did the fishermen attack them or fire upon them first?
No.

Changing the issue it won't hide the cruely and unnecessary order of your god.

<quoted text>But you were asking about direct mention of those sites within the Jewish Scriptures

But if you want to enlarge the conversation, the Jewish scriptures (tanakh) never mention Islam, or that Moses (et al) was a Islamic prophet. Islam does not exist. The Islamic scriptures lay that claim. As a Jew I would not bother with someone else's scriptures, but I can comment on my own.

UhUh did mention some vaugue reference to something to something in the Jewish midrash. Midrash is not tanach, it was formualted centuries later (though still pre Islam). It is commentary and religious fiction, and not theology.
Ok I understand that the Jewish scriptures would not mention islamic teachings or any reference to as islamic revelation came afterwards

But what I was interested to understand was if in any Jewish scriptures historical or religious if the Kaaba which Islam states was built first built by prophet Adam and then rebuilt by prophet Ibrahim...and zam zam Ismail, and Mecca it's self... Is mentioned

There seems to be within Judaism variations of what is credible, I have not read too much about judaism, in regards it's religious and historical scriptures that's why I sought further opinion

I have already told you that Jewish scripture don't contain any of that, Mecca, Kaaba, Zamzam Adam built Kaaba, and then Avraham. That is onlyone of the many islamic inventions.

Well Frijolie, you know now because I am telling you that the Muslim god Allah is not the same God of Israel.

Do the Jews treat women and young girls the same as Muslims who worship the God Allah?
Watch this video and then tell me again that the Muslim god is the
same as the God of Israel?

Muslims do not need approval from Jews, Christians or anybody else except approval from ALLAH.

ALLAH alone will suffice.

Non Muslims will deny that Abraham had PURE ARAB ancestors (not just descendants!!) and they cover up his connection with Arabs.

If we all came from Adam we must all be related anyway.
Why should any "god" favour just one race or tribe?

I have no time for such a "god".

The reality is that Jews Christians and Muslims believe that they all worship the God of Adam.

Jews believe that God of Adam is anti gentile and favours Jews above others forever.

Christians believe that this "anti gentile" God of Adam came to earth as a man (his own son!) to die for the gentiles!

Muslims believe that God of Adam treats ALL creation equally.

The books of others have been edited/corrected to promote their own religion/tribe/race by usually excluding others from having equal access to GOD.

ONLY ISLAM GIVES EQUAL ACCESS BY ALL CREATION TO THEIR CREATOR.
Other religions have been editing out "Islam/Salam" that has been there long before Judaism and Christianity.


Was Moses a Jew? When did he say he was?
Was Abraham a Jew? When did he say that?
Was Isaac a Jew or follower of Judaism? When did he say that?

Was Jesus a Christian? When did he say that?
Ironically Prophet Jesus said he was Jew who came only for the Jews ended up as "god" of Christians!!!
