Who Is Allah?

“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?”

BJ was nothing.
He was an irritating clown who knew nothing about politics, law, economics, science, family life etc. He was a homeless clown without any proper record for nearly 30 years of his life!!!
He was not smart. He got his cronies to buy swords and dropped them and himself in it. They ran off naked being typical cowards.
He had no authority whatsoever.
Prove to us that he REALLY did ANYTHING useful at all.
Come on lying Christian:
Can you produce some proper historical offical records on this "god", "king of heaven" "king of jews", what exactly he did officially!
He did NOTHING. ZERO...ZILCH..ZIPPO, NIL, NADA AND EVEN NULL!!
BJ is a mythical king!
Muslims will not support such a clown. The Jews spit on him.
Others don't believe him.
so you are on your own dear ignorant Christian.
Hmm...your "prophet" Mohammad had the highest possible regard for "BJ," but what "historical official records"* did he consult that convinced him that "BJ" existed at all, and that he was a miracle worker? Could it be that his only sources were hearsay accounts, if it is true, as some Muslims insist, that Mohammad was illiterate and couldn't actually read the New Testament, not even one that had been translated into Arabic?

* The Qur'an is NOT an "historical official record" but is rather a private revelation that in any case can't be trusted for its numerous internal and external contradictions. See: http://wikiislam.net/wiki/Contradictions_in_t...

in Judaism and Islam, God is indivisible and remains invisible

the god of Christianity is neither indivisible nor invisible,
there are three DISTINCT persona, and "if you see Jesus, you see the Father"

due to opposing concepts of God between Judaism and Christianity
the term "Pagano-Christian" suits their theology better, rather than "Judaeo-Christian"

God by definition can do whatever it pleases God to do, including becoming fully human while remaining fully God. If you deny even the possibility, then your "God Box" is way too small.

Hello phallus-minus buford! how are you my old mucker?
I have clearly answered you but you are unable to produce one piece of solid evidence from the Gospels where Jesus claims divinity in the first person. I am happy to reproduce my 17 questions.
Back to BJ....BJ is NOT Jesus PBUH.
BJ is a mangod clown who was clueless.
What more can one say?

Hello clueless passportless phallusless buford!
Jesus PBUH was a man of God.
Muhammed PBUH was a man of God.
Allah has ways of communicating with Men of God.
There is no need to look up historical records.

But BJ is a mythical mangod who is supposed to be the ONLY BEGOTTEN son of his daddy god.
BJ is supposed to be king of heaven with all authority being given to him.
The earthquakes post sepulchre incidents have not been recorded anywhere.
The historical records say nothing about this "god" who died, got up and ran off to daddy in heaven.
No witnesses! There should be thousands witnessing this and records must be full of such great deeds!
Nothing Zilch Nada...Zero...
BJ is a myth.

@ Seeker
It is a beautiful Sunday here. Will contribute more in the evening.
And don't forget to deliberate on my analysis of the parable:
To be frank, Shamma, this is the most ridiculous and absurd parable written and falsely ascribed to Jesus.
The master had entrusted the gold for safe-keeping. He had not instructed them to invest and make the money grow.
The two, who made money, would have run away, if they had incurred losses on gambling, drinking and womanizing.
The third guy was honest. He kept the gold safe as it was given for safe-keeping. He honoured the trust.
The master appears to be a very greedy fellow, who was out to make money. He believed in usury, which means multiplying wealth by charging interest.
The proof of that is in this pudding of the parable, which is definitely not a diamond from Jesus:
"26 “His master replied,‘You wicked, lazy servant! So you knew that I harvest where I have not sown and gather where I have not scattered seed? 27 Well then, you should have put my money on deposit with the bankers, so that when I returned I would have received it back with interest."
This shows that Jesus believed in making money by getting interest, without doing any work.
Ridiculous Parable.
Brother Jesus, the only son of my dearest mother Mary, would have never spoken out this silly, absurd and ridiculous parable.
You need to read, study and contemplate. You have to pick up the diamonds from Jesus, from the dunghills in the landscape of the New Testament.
Are you serious? LOL

If you are serious, then your comments would be laughable, if not so sad.

The parable is saying that God has given people some gifts or talents. Some people have more than others. What is most important is how we use these gifts. A good Christians will put their talents to good use and they will multiply. God rewards those who put their talents to work for Him.

But some (one in this parable) do not put them to good use. They fail to use the talents God has given them and they will be punished.

I find it really interesting that in the beginning when Muhammad was trying to convince the Jews he was legit, the prayer direction was Jerusalem, but then after he realized the Jews rejected him, suddenly the prayer direction changes to the Kaaba.

And the very poor explanation for this sudden change was that Allah was "testing" them. And we know for a fact that reverence of the Kaaba and the Black Stone clearly came from the Meccan pagan religions that Muhammad grew up with. Same thing with the Jinn. These were all Arab pagan concepts. Muhammad was willing to incorporate anything into Islam if he thought it would get him followers.
Even before he had met a Jew or the Jews of Medinah, he had always faced Jerusalem when he prayed in Mecca.

No, there was no test conducted on him in that by Allah. It was a way to show that Jerusalem was of no significance or importance. Thus the cut off.

Muhammad had always wanted to face the Ka'aba and permission was granted.

Those, who were standing in prayers behind him at that time, went through the real test when the Prophet turned towards Mecca and all turned, without asking a question.

Anyway, you should not worry about the change of direction, as Christians have no sense of direction.

The Jews do have a sense of direction for paryers. The Synagogues face the Temple Mount in Jerusalem, while the Churches mostly face East towards the sun. lol!

Muhammad Alex is a convert to Islam. His name was Alex. When he became a Muslim, he added Muhammad to his English name.

Now he is called Muhammad Alex. He is a very nice person.

Shall we name him: Mohamed Joel?
