Who Is Allah?

There are 20 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?”

He was born of a woman, so he was a man. God is not born of any woman.

Jesus walked like a man, peed like a man, shat and farted like a man, ate food like a man, etc.

He was a man.

In the Jewish scriptures there is no mention of any Zamzam, Mecca or even Kaaba.

CORRECTION # 170671

It's quite evident you are not a scholar of Quran...

Quran 8:55-56
55Indeed, the worst of living creatures in the sight of Allah are those who have disbelieved, and they will not [ever] believe.

56The ones with whom you made a treaty but then they break their pledge every time, and they do not fear Allah .

But are you blind or what? Don't you see that it said "the worst living creatures in the SIGHT of Allah"? Allah created who knows how many living beings and found the worst living creatures in this planet, that coincidentally are the enemies of Muslims?

It doesn't require a rocket scientist to understand Muhammad is using Allah to put Muslims against people, that according to his version of story, are breaking the covenant with him.

That guy knew how to fool ignorant arabs.
I have never claimed to be a scholar but I am correct in what is the interpretation...

<quoted text>You talk like a Muslim and act like a Muslim, so you must be a Muslim, right?

There is your answer.
Muslims are historically known liars.

The Qur'an:

Qur'an (16:106)- Establishes that there are circumstances that can “compel” a Muslim to tell a lie.

Qur'an (3:28)- This verse tells Muslims not to take those outside the faith as friends, unless it is to “guard themselves.”

Qur'an (9:3)-“…Allah and His Messenger are free from liability to the idolaters…” The dissolution of oaths with the pagans who remained at Mecca following its capture. They did nothing wrong, but were evicted anyway.

Qur'an (2:225)-“Allah will not call you to account for thoughtlessness in your oaths, but for the intention in your hearts”

Qur'an (66:2)-“Allah has already ordained for you,(O men), the dissolution of your oaths”

Qur'an (3:54)-“And they (the disbelievers) schemed, and Allah schemed (against them): and Allah is the best of schemers.” The Arabic word used here for scheme (or plot) is makara, which literally means deceit. If Allah is deceitful toward unbelievers, then there is little basis for denying that Muslims are allowed to do the same.(See also

8:30 and 10:21)

Taken collectively these verses are interpreted to mean that there are circumstances when a Muslim may be “compelled” to deceive others for a greater purpose.

The Quran is not come from God, yet you insist it is, and trash Jesus Christ over false teachings in the Quran about Jesus.
For over 1400 years Muslims have been Murdering Christians over these false scriptures in the Quran.
"After the negative experiences which depressed Mohammed, Khadijah sent him to her cousin, Waraqa, to convince him that Mohammed was called to be a prophet of Allah.
Waraqa succeeded in his task and became responsible for most of the Quranic verses at the beginning.
Waraqa inserted Ebionite doctrines about Jesus in the Quran, stating that Jesus was a prophet, and that He was not crucified, but God made someone to resemble Jesus.
That one was crucified because the crowd thought he was Jesus.
This doctrine was first initiated by Simon, the magician from Samaria, who later founded a heresy which took his name, Simonianism.
In reality, Simon created the root for such doctrine, before it was developed by the Gnostics in later times. Here, I present Simon the magicians idea about Jesus, which Hyppolytus reported in The Refutation of all heresies:
Jesus Christ being transformed, and being assimilated to the rulers and powers and angels, came for the restoration (of things). And so (it was that Jesus) appeared as man, when in reality he was not a man. And (so it was) that likewise he suffered, though not actually undergoing suffering, but appearing to the Jews to do so.[xxx][30]
The idea that the people crucified someone whom God made to resemble Jesus was embraced by some heresy-believing groups which were known to have immoral values, such as free sex and connections with occultism. Waraqa belonged to one of these cults.

Worshipping a "ONE-EYED" NAKED pagan oozing from a phallus is jinn devil worship.

Jesus was just a man who NEVER claimed divinity.
Only those who are deceived by demons worship that poor man.

Yes but we also believe in prophets prior to prophet Mohammed peace be upon him, for example Moses peace be upon him is mentioned many many times in quran , so is Ibrahim and Adam
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.

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.
Skeptic shamma, paul wv, other "pole"micists are unable to confidently point out their "god" or gods"

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.

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...
