Who Is Allah?

There are 228468 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?”

<quoted text>What was the purpose of Jesus going to hell? To suffer for the sins of those who believe in him? Do you really think 3 days was enough? Or was it to redeem all those who were in hell? Don't you think all the demons would accept him? And if the demons then went to heaven, would their nature be changed? In Christianity, the wicked go to heaven and the righteous go to hell. You can't see the paradox and you call this a righteous and just judge?

You say "Messiah is son of god".And you say "Messiah is dead".How can gods die?
The God of Israel is the living God and creator. Jesus was not God or the son of God. Earth is called the "land of the living" and has come to earth in the incarnation. Everybody who has ever been born is subject to the death of the soul (body) but the God of Israel will conquer and transcend death and live and reign forever on earth. Jesus did not rise from the dead, if he had he would be here.

What is the covenant of life?
John 15:10-12
10 If you keep my commandments, you shall abide in my love; even as I have kept my Father's commandments, and abide in his love.
11 These things have I spoken to you, that my joy might remain in you, and that your joy might be full. 12 This is my commandment, That you love one another, as I have loved you.

<quoted text>MUQ the Clean Mouthed,
I've been learning about life history of your "prophet" from Islamic historians and biographers like Ishaq and Bukhari and Muslim and Abu Dawood. From them I've learned that Mohammad was a thief, a murderer, a rape enabler, and an enslaver of women and children, but I've learned especially from the Qur'an that your "prophet" was a plagiarist who mangled what he "borrowed," a Jew hating bigot, and a vengeance minded narcissist who was always threatening eternal doom to those -and there were many- who had the good sense to reject his testimony as that of a deluded and bloody tool of the jinns.

Luke 5:17-26
New International Version (NIV)
Jesus Forgives and Heals a Paralyzed Man
17 One day Jesus was teaching, and Pharisees and teachers of the law were sitting there. They had come from every village of Galilee and from Judea and Jerusalem. And the power of the Lord was with Jesus to heal the sick. 18 Some men came carrying a paralyzed man on a mat and tried to take him into the house to lay him before Jesus. 19 When they could not find a way to do this because of the crowd, they went up on the roof and lowered him on his mat through the tiles into the middle of the crowd, right in front of Jesus.
20 When Jesus saw their faith, he said,“Friend, your sins are forgiven.”
21 The Pharisees and the teachers of the law began thinking to themselves,“Who is this fellow who speaks blasphemy? Who can forgive sins but God alone?”
22 Jesus knew what they were thinking and asked,“Why are you thinking these things in your hearts? 23 Which is easier: to say,‘Your sins are forgiven,’ or to say,‘Get up and walk’? 24 But I want you to know that the Son of Man has authority on earth to forgive sins.” So he said to the paralyzed man,“I tell you, get up, take your mat and go home.” 25 Immediately he stood up in front of them, took what he had been lying on and went home praising God. 26 Everyone was amazed and gave praise to God. They were filled with awe and said,“We have seen remarkable things today.”

Perhaps if you re-read those books, with open mind, you could reach a different conclusions.

01. But Muhammad since childhood tripped with his uncle in different places, and let's not forget that Waraqa was a Christian and maybe a priest from Makkah, and he was the one who told to Muhammad that the angel that supposedly visited him is Gabriel.

Anyway keep lying.
Ans.

01. Mere Suspicions do not prove anything.

02. Our prophet traveled with his uncle only once when he was a lad of 10 or 11 years old and once or twice when he traveled with a trade caravan.

There is no proof that he went into long discussions with religious people there.

03. Waraqa might have been a Christian, but he was not a Christian priest in Makkah and neither had a following.

Our prophet was not his regular visitor or his disciple.

Yes he told our prophet that the visitor whom he had seen was Angel Gabriel, because the message looked similar to what Moses and Jesus preached.

That is all and Waraqa died soon afterwards.

And the Quran gives a challenge to every one to bring a book like Quran. No one took up the challenge nor can take it even now.

01. And yet you are supposed to believe that all prophets are equal. Isn't that what your religion teaches?

02. Anyway, you are correct. Muhammad was a very uneducated murderer with no philosophical depth at all, and Jesus had an amazing knowledge of human nature.

03. Muhammad and/or the Quran was as deep as a baby pool with a baby turd in it. But you know knowing about depth of thought.

04. Things like that are never taught to you, you are only taught the Quran, so anything of any depth just completely flies over your head. That's okay, it clearly flew over Muhammad's head as well.
Ans.

01. Saying all prophets are equally honorable to us, does not mean that they are same.

Quran testifies that God favoured some prophets over others and gave some of them gifts which He did not give to others.

But in the office of Prophethood they have the same status. If that was not the case,. Followers of every prophet will try to exaggerate their own prophets and try to do down the others.

02. And your comments regarding our prophet just proves this!!

You think by using abuses and curses and speaking gutter language for him, makes Jesus happy? Do you?

03. I am seeing what is taught to you people. The language you use, the free flowing uses of curses, abuses and name calling which we see on this and other thread, if this is what your books and your prophets taught you, then we are at least better off than you on this ground.

MUQ the Open Minded,

Bukhari:V5B59N512 "The Prophet had their men killed, their children and woman taken as captives. The captives were divided among the Muslims. Then the Messenger began taking the homes and property that were closest to him."

Bukhari:V4B52N270 "Allah's Messenger said,'Who is ready to kill Ashraf? He has said injurious things about Allah and His Apostle.' Maslama got up saying,'Would you like me to kill him?' The Prophet proclaimed,'Yes.' Maslama said,'Then allow me to lie so that I will be able to deceive him.' Muhammad said,'You may do so.'"

Tabari VII:97 "The morning after the murder of Ashraf, the Prophet declared,'Kill any Jew who falls under your power.'"

Bukhari:V1B1N6 "Just issue orders to kill every Jew in the country."

Tabari VIII:122
Ishaq:515 "The Prophet gave orders concerning Kinanah to Zubayr, saying,'Torture him until you root out and extract what he has. So Zubayr kindled a fire on Kinanah's chest, twirling it with his firestick until Kinanah was near death. Then the Messenger gave him to Maslamah, who beheaded him."

Qur'an 5:33 "The punishment for those who wage war against Allah and His Prophet and make mischief in the land, is to murder them, crucify them, or cut off a hand and foot on opposite sides...their doom is dreadful. They will not escape the fire, suffering constantly."

Tabari VII:133
Ishaq:387 "When Muhammad saw Hamzah he said,'If Allah gives me victory over the Quraysh at any time, I shall mutilate thirty of their men!' When the Muslims saw the rage of the Prophet they said,'By Allah, if we are victorious over them, we shall mutilate them in a way which no Arab has ever mutilated anybody."

Qur'an 9:29 "Fight against those People of the Book [Christians and Jews] who do not follow what Allah and His Messenger acknowledge as the true religion (Islam), nor accept Our law, until they pay the Jizyah tribute tax in submission."
__________

The re-read passages above establish that your "prophet" was at the very least a thief, a sadistic murderer, an enslaver of woman and children, a vengeance-minded narcissist, and a Jew and Christian intolerant bigot.

Again, Mohammad the Comforter. LOL!!!

Talking about proof there are no proof of the existence of Muhammad, nor of Abraham went all the way down to Kaaba, nor of an angel visited him etc What was your point then?

What do you mean by Waraqa might have been a Christian? Don't you trust anymore Islamic tradition, or you trust them when it's more confortable for you? If it is so, then let's say that Muhammad might have been the messenger of god, and that an angel might have visited him.

Your desperation is so big that you arrive to deny that Muhammad had any contact with Christians when Waraqa was a Christian in Makkah, and cousin of the first wife of Muhammad, as well as relative of your prophet. And common sense tells us if there was a Christian there, there is a good chance that there were other Christians as well.

Don't tell me your prophet had no way to plagiarize the Bible when one of his relative was a Christian who according to Aishia he read the Bible in its original language and learned Hebrew.

Show me my gutter language. Come on, show it. Prove it. You can't unless you think the words fraud and liar are gutter language. Just because I think Muhammad is a fraud does not automatically mean I am speaking gutter language. But in your mind, it does because nobody is allowed to properly examine Muhammad and question his authenticity. So to you, that's gutter language. I can show you real gutter language if you would like, but I don't see what that will lend to the conversation.

It isn't what Jesus teaches, it's just what some people besides myself do. If you think Jesus teaches this, then show me the verses. If you want me to show you the verses from the Quran that advocate violence and that jihadists use, I most certainly can. Are you up for the challenge? I can assure you, you will lose and you even know that.
