Who Is Allah?

There are 250918 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?”

Muhammad did more than it, he tried to put himself in the same line of god, an used him for his purpose.

59:6 "Allah gives his Messenger Lordship and Power over whomever He wills."
There is no Lordship with an 'L' in caps, fool! And then the words "Lordship and Power" do not appear in that verse, together. Are you an ex-Christian?

What it means is that Allah has given his Messengers authority. It is not just about Muhammad.

The word Messenger is in plural, Ignorant Fool!

Otherwise shut up and move on.
You never explained what "7th CE" was!!!
Is there such a word?
There are many books, inscriptions, coins, and artifacts that pre-date Islam by a long shot, so what are you talking about?

And who told you that the Koran is orignal? CE means common era.

This is what Quran says: "He who obeys the Messenger obeys Allah."
What's the problem with this statement?
1) It's Muhammad that went to people and stated I am the messenger of god. Allah didn't say nothing to anyone. The claim makes no sense, then. It would have been different if Allah himself told to people that, but never happened.
2) Who guarantee to people that even if Muhammad was prophet of god, every thing he said came from god without never take his own initiative out of his ass for his personal vendetta or purpose?
3) It's always funny when a person introduce himself as messenger of an invisible, imperceptible almighty entity, and if you don't do what the messenger said, you are doomed to suffer for eternity.

Your desperation is so grand that you are attacking on little things that even if they are incorrect don't change the meaning of the verse.

By the way how do people know that a god is giving power to his messengers, say Muhammad, over whom he wills, if there are not other way to verify the claim than to accept what the supposed messenger said? LOL

The difference is if the officer tell you to do something foolish or wrong you can contact the commander-in-chief and have an answer from him. In case of Muhammad, you cant contact anyone. Hence the need of convince people he's Allah's main boy, and to "enslave" them the using of faith.

But then what does Allah give power to His Messengers over whomsoever He wills mean?

By inventing such a verse Muhammad had a free pass to commit and permit evil actions like killing, raping ect. No one can question what was the will of Muhammad's god, so if someone pointed out to Mu, that what he did was wrong, he can always say it was Allah's will.

The stupidity of Muslims makes pass one like Muhammad for an intelligent person. LOL

Now that is a stupid comment.
Islam and Judaism work mainly on the principle that "messengers" bring message from God.
When prophets and messengers bring messages, only an idiot would want to talk to God!!
Either you believe in God or you don't!
If you believe in God you will believe in the Prophet who has brought a clear message to the followers.
If you don't believe in god, you won't be listening to the prophet anyway.
By definition you can't "see" God.

Ten Reasons Why Muhammad Was a False Prophet?

Tuesday, 04 September 2012 01:20 Imran Firasat

There are way too many reason to nullify Muhammad's claim of being a prophet of God. Here are 10 reasons:
1.No extraordinary natural signs before birth of Muhammad, or predictions from past religious characters about arrival of Muhammad to save the world.
2.Islam did not exist at the time Muhammad was born. He was born to an idolater family and that’s what he followed all his childhood and teenage. That means, Muhammad, born as a Qafir (Infidel), spent 70% of his life as a proud infidel before he invented Islam.
3.His first marriage was with a Jewish woman and not with any Muslimah. So, which religious rites were followed at his marriage ceremony with a Jewish woman if Islam wasn’t yet born? Certainly, a Jewish style marriage ceremony! Even the Quran doesn’t mention anything about the Islamic ceremony of Prophet Muhammad’s first marriage. That simply shows that even Muhammad didn’t have any idea of the existence of Islam or his prophecy.
4.If Muhammad was an adorable prophet sent by Allah, then why didn't he reveal the truth about Islam, when he was a child or when he got young? Why did he waste 40 years of his life as a non-Muslim idolater? If his purpose of coming in this world was only to reveal Islam and preach it to people, then why he had to wait until more than half of his life, living like a common man and practicing idol-worship?
5.Almost all the rituals and rules of Islam mentioned in the Quran are copied from Judaism, which shows how deeply Muhammad was inspired by Judaism and attracted towards the Torah. So, he found copying and pasting from the Torah into his Quran was the easiest way to invent a new religion.
6.Muhammad spread Islam on the point of the sword and not with love and preaching. His strategy was to rule at any price.
7.Muhammad killed poor, innocent and helpless people, which can’t be justified in any sense as act of a holy prophet.
8.How to call Muhammad a holy prophet, when he sexually abused uncountable number of women, including sometimes ridiculously shamefully, like his marriage with minor Aisha and his own daughter-in-law Zainab. That proves that Muhammad was just another powerful dictator, who knew very well how to take advantage of his power and abuse everyone, anywhere and in any way.
9.Muhammad never performed any miracle, which is expected of a prophet. Instead of helping the suffering people, he used to destroy well-settled, peaceful communities, capturing their lands and making the captured children and women slave.
10.In his life, Muhammad did immense harm to humanity but that was not enough for his satanic mind. So, before dying, he left the messages of Jihad to his followers for conquering the whole world, all of humanity, in the name of Islam, which continues causing great sufferings to our lives to this day. Wouldn't a true prophet sacrifice his own life for his people, instead of destroying lives on every flimsy excuses? It shows that Muhammad was not a prophet – neither in life nor in death.

It is hard to find a holy personality in other religions, who committed atrocious crimes like those of Muhammad. Let’s have a look at some other famous religious characters from history:

Jesus Christ: He didn’t initiate any war, never killed innocent people, and didn’t abuse women like Muhammad. He has not left any question mark on his character before leaving this world.
