Who Is Allah?

There are 252992 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?”

rabbee: all you have to do, is to agree with them. so in essence they do apply, to everyone here in TheTorah. whether you are male of female, you are required to reject those are in non-compliance. even the command that no male, shall like with another male as with a woman. since it also violates the command, to be fruitfull and multiply, and the first command. all sins violate, the first command of G-D. all sinning is a symptom of not being, true to G-D.
__________
So, Just as everyone can acknowledge the 611; everyone can acknowledge the 2
rabbee: so? it still won't gain you, entrance into GanEden. since the law only allows you to observe, your or somebody else's screwing up. indicating that you, don't believe in G-D.

for even as long as you can observe, there is no temple today. the whole world is even guilty for that. and very few nations have an appointed king as in not so great Brittan (brit tan - brit jackel or whatever?). acknowledgement of the law, and about $3.50 will still only get you a cup of coffee. as long as you can observe violations of the law occurring.

i mean the jews acknowledge the law, even if they don't do any of it. there still not, in GanEden today. because they do not really believe in G-D, or these twice comings of G-D'S Son here in TheTorah. cause there is no command to believe in jews, or anyone's religion. since the command is to believe in G-D, here in TheTorah actually again.

you can deny being here, in TheTorah from G-D all you want. but you'll all get hell for it, and you shall never make it to GanEden only offered to those here in TheTorah.

Okay, so what you mean by "here in TheTorah" is living in the here and now. If so, why don't you just say so? What is all of the jargon about? I'm aware of this idea and have been for about 15 years. I didn't have God visit me. God doesn't need to.
There is a mystic concept called the eternal moment where one lives in the present moment. The concept says that the only thing that is real is the present moment, which goes on and on and on. The past and future aren't real, they are merely mental constructs or concepts of the mind. They might be accurate concepts (and sometimes not) and they can be useful, but they are still merely mental concepts. The past is a memory. The future is an expectation. But the only thing that is actual reality is the present moment. When a past event occurred, it did so in the present moment. When the future arrives, it does so in the present moment. So the present moment is actually the only thing that exists in reality, and it goes on and on and on. This is called the eternal moment because when one does not think about the past and future and focuses on the present moment, time itself seems to disappear because time itself is also a mental construct that is created by comparing our past to the present moment and comparing the present moment to the future.
The mind often lives in the past and future, but rarely the present. So when we see something, we are not seeing that thing in it's true present moment reality and therefore don't see what that thing really is, and instead we use our past memories and categorize what we see based on those. This involves the eastern concept of "labels" where we don't see the actual reality of something, we see our label for it instead. And then, we decide whether this thing will help us or hurt us, and see it with our concept of the future. So we never pay attention to what that thing really is in it's present state in the present moment. All the mind sees is the past and future.
It's very difficult to constantly be "present" and usually only the best gurus or mystics can do this, and there are plenty of fake gurus. But if one becomes present and is so focused on that, the idea of future threat or even death disappears because we are only concentrating on what is happening now and doing the right thing now because we see things clearly and see them for what they actually are. This is why this is called the "eternal present moment", which just goes on and on and on and the mind never thinks of eventual death. Whether that will occur or not is irrelevant to someone who is constantly present. They are only concerned about seeing true reality which can only be found in the present moment. There is a difference between "everlasting" life, which is still within time. It is time perduring forever. But eternal means timeless no time. It means something outside of time itself where one is so focused on the present that one no longer has any concerns of the past and future and therefore lives in eternal life, not everlasting life. So the eternal life that everyone is searching for is right now, right in front of our eyes but nobody knows that. So if one is completely focused on the present, from moment to moment, heaven and hell are no longer concerns, as they will take care of themselves. The only concern is doing the correct thing in the present moment and seeing it the correct way and seeing true reality and if one focuses on that, this is where God is found and everything takes care of itself. So GanEden, as you say, is actually right here and right now and we can enter it at any moment, but we don't, and God is waiting for us to do so and live there, or live that way, which would be a more accurate way to describe it. So if this is what you are actually saying, then I understand and we can actually discuss this and much more.

Please explain why, for example, the female mitzvah are applicable to me since "all you have to do, is to agree with them", but the two mitvah are not, even if I "agree with them".

And this is where I agree with Shamma. You are serving Satan in those statements. You are saying that the master deceiver is actually proving the truth for us, which would be a logical contradiction. So you are actually siding with Satan and saying that Satan helps us determine the truth. You are saying that the master of hoaxes is the one identifying a hoax for us and telling us the truth. I'm sure you did not think of it that way when you said what you said, but you just didn't think it through thoroughly enough. You make many logical errors because you do not think deeply enough into what you are actually saying.
The error is in that illogical story of Jesus being sent to Satan.

I have analyzed it in the right context.

Well, although you don't believe in God, at least you understand the concept of what almighty means, and that if there is a God, who says that God would think like we do and we should expect God to have the same reasoning that we do? This is where Muhammad revealed his shallow philosophical or reasoning abilities. He simply reasoned that God should behave as we would expect God to behave, which pretty much means that God would behave as we do. He was merely using his own sense of reasoning to decide what God would or wouldn't do, and this is why Muslims do the same thing and they think it is all so clear to them and they are so assured that surely they must be right.
To apply this sort of logic to God that is supposed to be almighty and beyond our abilities to understand is in of itself illogical, but they don't understand that mistake because of what the Quran tells them. They surely expect that God should be completely understandable and explainable, and this is what the Quran tries to do, which is why it has such appeal to them.
In my experience, if someone is inventing a lie, they are going to try to make that lie as clear and understandable as possible because their only goal in inventing that lie is to get people to understand it and therefore believe it, and therefore they want to make it as easily understandable as possible. When someone presents weird concepts and admits that they themselves do not fully understand it, then chances are pretty good that they actually are NOT inventing a lie. That's not to say that these concepts are automatically true, but it's an indication that they aren't merely making them up. Muslims think the exact opposite. If it doesn't fit into their limited reasoning abilities, then it cannot be from God. And this is how Muhammad thought as well. As far as I am concerned, if God exists, then I would fully expect such said thing to simply be beyond all capabilities of reasoning. Logically, it would almost HAVE to be that way. And I would expect certain things about God to not make any sense to me. So in my opinion, Muslims have it completely backwards and Muhammad is to blame.
Agree

Another question raised is why would Jesus come back to vanquish the anti-Christ if Muhammad is the last prophet.
I don't see it as an issue. Muhammad is seen as the last prophet sent by god, in chronological order.

The Antichrist is seen as blasphemer that will come down to this globe and deceive people. Allah will let him do it and test the people, and then Isa will come down to defeat the AC and his supporters.(Me thinking as a Muslim).

What is queer is that they (Muslims) give so much emphasis on Isa, but Muhammad is the most worshipped and considered to be the number one, the sinless man, altough Isa seems to be more powerful and important than Muhammad, according to Islam.

P.S. Muhammad copied too much infos about Isa from canonical and non Gospels, hence the story of him coming down in the Final Hour.

Scary Bible Quotes

http://spot.colorado.edu/~huemer/biblequotes ....

You post those verses, but you still as a Muslim don't understand what you posted or why they are there in scripture..

They are there as a teaching tool to teach that Gods Commandments are to be obeyed.

The punishments were in effect upon the Israelite's to show the severity of Gods punishment to those that commit those sins.

They are there to teach us now not to commit those sins for when we die we will receive the consequence of those sins at the last judgment in the everlasting fire of hell.

Muslims don't understand that is one reason God sent Jesus to die on the cross for your sins, so that you have the opportunity to repent your sins to God, instead of receiving the instant punsihment for those sin committed.
If you don't repent and stop committing sin, you will be Judged guilt for every sin you commit hear on earth while you live.
There is no doing good deeds to weigh against a committed sin.
As you can see as scripture teaches those that committed sin were punished regardless of the good deeds they done.

But under the cross of Jesus God allows you to repent your sin and stop doing it, so when you do die that sin is not charged against you.

Doing goods is required by God for all peoples do in showing respect to God.

So don't think your good deeds wipes away your sin.
When you sin you are guilty of sin and you will pay the punishment for that sin when you die, if you do not repent that sin.

asexual reproduction: the offspring arise from a single parent

if Jesus is the offspring of ASEXUAL reproduction, Mary is the SINGLE parent, since he came out of her
but if Jesus is also son of God, he has TWO parents i.e. he is the offspring of SEXUAL reproduction

so... who sired Jesus? whose gametes fertilized the eggs of 12-yr old Mary? lol

First off, the question I arise concerned Quran 6:101

Second off, Quran 6:101 has nothing to do with Greek.

Third off, don't mix up Christian thing with Islam thing

Fourth off, the Greek word huios means male offspring, which is applicable mostly to humans, in few cases to animals, but any case it is applied to something that has a gender, specifically to male gender. I don't see the reason why Greeks should call the offspring of plants etc by the term huios.

Fifth off, do me a favour learn Greek.

Your view is shallow since it doesn't explain much. For example Can't Ilah resurrect Isa,(If he has died) and let him appear on the Final Hour?

Jesus christ SHALL return to earth at the appointed time and place decided by God. And it shall be very close to the Final Hour and is one of the Major Sign for approaching hour.
His main job will be to slay the Anti Christ, who shall be tormenting people on this earth.
He will clarify all the "Myths" that Pauline Christianity has put around him, he will clarify that he was no God, no Son of God and No person in the Unholy Trinity.
He will clarify that he did not die on cross and there was no question of any resurrection.
That would end all conflicts between Islam, Judaism and Christianity and there will be one Universal religion in which ALL CHILDREN OF ADAM shall be united once again.
This is what Islamic teachings are about Second Coming of Jesus.
Find holes in it, if you can.
Allah Knows Best.
Your beliefs make no sense, MUQ. If Jesus is in no way God, why does he come back to defeat the Antichrist? Your beliefs about Jesus as a prophet are why I am not a Muslim. The coming Antichrist is God incarnate and will unite the righteous of all faiths. Jesus is the one who must and will be defeated. You do not believe in the crucifixion or resurrection, how can you believe in the NT at all? Jesus was sent by Satan to finish his work and he has proven to be a false prophet. You're as ignorant as the Christians are. Bottom line, the man is dead.
