Who Is Allah?

Who Is Allah?

There are 256356 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?”

the name YHWH is exclusively used by Israelites to refer to God whom they made a covenant with
gentiles have no right to use that Name

the prophets Job, Eliphaz, Bildad, Zophar and Elihu were not Israelites
throughout their dialogues, the name YHWH is never mentioned by them; instead they called God El, Shaddai or.. Eloah

BMZ---Take the direct route to God. You don't need Jesus.

HughBe--- Greetings my friend. It is not my aim to enter into a debate with you on the matter that you are discussing. I seek information only.

You have said that one does not need Jesus all that is required is for someone to take the DIRECT route to God.

My questions are---

Do you need the Prophet Muhammad?

Can you get to paradise without Muhammad meaning can you IGNORE him and make it into paradise?
Greetings, dear HughBe

Every time I write to polemicists like Shamma and others, you are always in my mind and I feel sad, when I have to hammer such freaks and I know you do understand why I do that.

Thanks for that understanding and now to your good questions.

We believe that Muhammad was the Prophet of God. And every Muslim must believe that and does believe.

We do not need the Prophet to send us into the Paradise and we do not believe that he is an intercessor or has any power to do so.

We only need to believe in Allah, the LORD Almighty to get into Paradise. That authority lies with Allah, not Muhammad.

Thanks for asking good questions.

Once again, my sincere apologies to you for what I do. I am glad you have always understood me.

Salaams and regards, my friend

But, didn't Muhammad chose the pre-Islamic god Allah as his personal god from the 360 gods that were worshipped since pre-Muhammad days in the Kaaba? This is all that he did - he chose Allah from 360 gods and made it his one and only god. LOL.
None out of the 360 gods within the Ka'aba, was called Allah.

Does "god" have a penis?
How stupid can people get?
Even worse...this "god" used his penis only to pee, APPARENTLY. not for any rumpy pumpy
Pull the other one.
God does not have a penis or serpent. The serpent was an earthly creation for purposes of procreation. Adam or Satan is called "Serpent" because that's his main schtick, he's a sex offender and the head of the Serpent will be bruised by the Messiah. Genesis 3:15. The Serpent will be tortured and cut off by the sword of the Lord. Isaiah 27:1. He is also called the piercing, crooked serpent and pierced the Messiah 5 times at the "crucifixion" which wasn't a crucifixion at all.

Susan, if God is a she, how can you call her Lord? Why not Lady?

THE MOST HOLY PROPHET MUHAMMED PBUH, MADE THINGS SIMPLE FOR THEM.
GOT THEM TO WORSHIP ONLY ONE GOD.
CORRECT.

Muhammad simply chose the god Allah out of 360 gods that were worshipped in the Kaaba by the pre-Islamic Arabs and made that his one and only god.

What's so great about this?

Muhammad was a bastard of the highest order who ruined himself and his followers and wrecked havoc on millions of lives.

No wonder, the evil rascal was murdered in keeping with the law of karma - as you sow, so shall you reap!

Interestingly, many members of his family and all his 4 caliphs were also murdered - as you sow, so shall you reap.

Good riddance to bad rubbish.

God is also called King and not Queen. A Queen is subservient to a King and God is not subservient to anybody. God takes it as an affront to call her "The Queen of Heaven". God is both a man and a woman and she prefers the male terms when describing her.

Yes, moron.

How can each of the 360 gods in the Kaaba be known by the same name? Obviously, they'll have different names.

Muhammad simply chose the ferocious god Allah out of 360 gods that were worshipped in the Kaaba by the pre-Islamic Arabs and made that his one and only god.

rabbee: i do not believe, TheTorah G-D gave to Moshe and the multitudes, was meant to be hidden under a rock. it was given to the multitudes, that represented the whole known world at the time. and i still believe that it was meant to be given to the whole known world.

and i still do not accept, any word with a phonetic w in eevreet. more or less a j, i, or u. and the w in german, is a phonetic v sound. do not forget to change it, to the phonetic v in english.

just normal hypocrites, claiming your fake scriptures. are not the same, as our fake scriptures. i do not believe, that any of your religions, are telling this same story here in TheTorah, TheWay G-D always does. ain't even any where close to TheWay, G-D tells this twice coming of Adam again.

Better yet, I thought it was "I AM" but then again it could be Jehovah.

Which is it?

"Moses said unto God, Behold, when I come unto the children of Israel, and shall say unto them, The God of your fathers hath sent me unto you; and they shall say to me, What is his NAME? what shall I say unto them?

14 And God said unto Moses, I Am That I Am: and he said, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, I Am hath SENT me unto you."

The truth is that Jesus was neither the son of God nor God. Period!
But Jesus was the son of the God of Christianity who is Satan. Jesus is Lucifer, Satans counterfeit messiah. Satan is a father and son. If Jesus was God, God is a wus.

Thanks ,BMZ, for your response.

Now for the points of interest.

BMZ---You don't need Jesus.

HughBe--- Do you need the Prophet Muhammad?

Can you get to paradise without Muhammad meaning can you IGNORE him and make it into paradise?

BMZ---... every Muslim MUST believe that and does believe(We believe that Muhammad was the Prophet of God)

HughBe--- Thinking aloud, why the MUST believe?

Hello HughBe, How are you?
I am sure BMZ will give a fuller response.
WE go DIRECT to God.
We don't need to go through Prophet Muhammed to God.
You know that many "Christians" believe that they have to go through Jesus pbuh to reach God or indeed Jesus pbuh is God.
Muslims don't believe any such thing about Prophet Muhammed pbuh.
The irony is that Jesus pbuh himself claimed that he came only for the Jews but many gentile "Christians" prefer to take instructions from Paul and chase after a man who never came for them in the first place.
Peace.
Alex---We don't need to go through Prophet Muhammed to God.

HughBe--- what is the meaning of "go through"?

What is the role of the Prophet Muhammed?
