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?”

Did Mohammad deny that Allah COULD become human? Is it spelled out in the Qur'an?
This is something which even Jesus did not say, Buford. He knew that God could do anything but he never believed that God could becomes a human or an animal or a worm.

How many TRIBES were with Moses in the desert? The answer is 12. Each TRIBE reflected one of the BROTHERS; i.e., sons of Jacob. Since there are 12 Tribes, the prophet will come from one of the brethren; i.e., TRIBES. S/he can't come from all 12 tribes. No where in the Chapter does it refer to Jews. Moses was not technically a Jew. Moses was a Levite. We later find out that the prophet will be of the Tribe of Judah, seed of Jesse. Isaiah 9. Is Muhammad of the seed of Jesse?
Eric,

Moses brought out many Hebrew tribes, not just the twelve.

To which tribe did the Hebrews, who rebelled against God and Moses, God, belong to?

Now Jesus even seduces women? LOL!!! Again, only a 10 year old would act this way. You honestly just have no idea how badly you embarrass yourself and you are so stupid that you actually think you are doing well. Amazing.
Stop embarrassing yourself if at all that is possible!
You are a registered moron!

Why can't BJ seduce women? Was he a FREAK?

You MUST stop "seeing" things, you fool.

Did BJ have an appendage? YES!
Did he use it to go to the toilet? YES.

What other use does that appendage have? Procreation

Why did he NOT use it?

Yes! He was chatting up the woman by the well:
- Why chase off all 12 pals to the shop without even giving them a drop of water after a long journey?
- Why talk about a woman's chastity in private?
- Why insult a woman in private about her promiscuity?
- Why check if any man is about?
- Why offer "living water"?
- What does "living water" look like?
- Where does "living water" it come from?
- Where is the pump for this warm "living tadpole water"?

BJ gave the woman a mouthful of "living water" under false pretext and BOTH seem happy!

What a naughty BJ.

The definition of "prophet" is quite wide.
Holy Prophet Muhammed PBUH is firstly a messenger of God.
I do not subscribe to the idea that God chose only one lot of prophets/messengers from one part of the world to convey the message to the rest of the world forever.
That will be seen as arrogance and elitism!
The ability to perform miracles and to dish out prophecies needs closer scrutiny.
Many conjurers and fake healers do a better job than the so called ancient Prophets.
In the case of "accepted" prophets, there is NO WAY you can prove who said what and if what they said did really happen or when.
I don't see any Prophet saying that something would happen and exactly when and how that something would happen!
Without wishing to challenge the authenticity of many religious books, you will find that most were written after the event claiming to predict the future.
There are claims that Prophet Muhammed prophesied many things but I am no expert in that field.
Quran is a great miracle and many things mentioned there are better than what many prophets have ever said.
@ eric correction....
I do not subscribe to the idea that God chose only one lot of prophets/messengers from one part of the world to convey the message to the EXCLUSION OF the rest of the world forever.
That will be seen as arrogance and elitism!

They are not answering this either, bro:

SIN CON: Wages of SIN is DEATH?

The pagan Church in effect confirms that, Daddie god sent his (JEWISH) Sonnie god to die for the sins of (JEWISH) MEN only!

***What happens to JEWISH WOMEN?
Where is the dying JEWISH daughter god for them?

***What about GENTILE MEN? Where is the dying gentile sonnie god for them?

***What happens to GENTILE WOMEN?
Where is the dying GENTILE daughter god for them?

****Now then.. Dolphins die;
Will Daddie god send his JEWISH & GENTILE sonnie dolphin gods to die for the sins of JEWISH & GENTILE Dolphins?

****Dogs & pigs die;
Will Daddie god send his JEWISH & GENTILE sonnie dog & pig gods to die for the sins of JEWISH & GENTILE dogs & pigs?

****THIS STILL LEAVES A HUGE NUMBER OUT!

****how about cats...rats....tigers...lions. ..worms...bacteria...virus.... and everything that dies?

AH.......

Is the Pagan man worshipper TELLING US THAT BJ "DIED" FOR EVERY LIVING THING?

BUT.....

If you READ BETWEEN THE LINES....ACCORDING to the CHURCH, WOMEN HAVE NO SOULS...and in reality treated like ANIMALS...which LEADS to a valid INTERPRETATION OF THEIR MISCONCEPTION:

"DADDIE GOD SENT HIS (JEWISH) SONNIE GOD TO DIE FOR THE SINS OF (JEWISH) MEN!!!

WELL DONE CHURCH..!

Jesus was at least a Jew, but Muhammad was a pagan Arab.

Salaam, bro.
This is what I call the "hijack theory"!
God of heavens finally becomes a tiny god of Israel and later to become the god of Judah!

Obviously the writers used poetic license to turn everything Hebrew into everything Judah thus including all bits of Abraham (excl Ishmael), Isaac (excl. Esau) and the other 11 bits of Israel!!

One hijack after the other.

Salaams, Alex.

ABRAHAM DID NOT BUILD KAABA:

Kaaba was built by pagan Arabs who installed in it 360 idols including one of Allah and his 3 daughters and besides they installed in it a Shiva Linga - a phallic stone set in a vaginal ring - and held an annual pilgrimage called Okaj or Haj. Circumambulating a phallic stone, tonsuring the head, wearing seamless garments, etc, are pagan customs. None of these are Jewish customs. Some reports say that the Kaaba - a Sanskrit word meaning Shiva Temple - was constructed by Emperor Vikramaditya for Shiva worship.

Of course some think that God loves only them and everything Abrahamaic is theirs excluding Ishmael and Esau.

I "think" that G-d thinks otherwise!

The pedestal Maqam-e-Ibrahim at the center of the Kaaba is octagonal in shape. In Hinduism, the pedestal of Brahma the creator is also octagonal in shape. Here Ibrahim or I-brahm is Brahma and not Avraham (Hebrew).

HARAM OR HARIYAM IN KAABA?

The ancient Vedic scripture Harihareswar Mahatmya mentions that Lord Vishnu's footprints are consecrated in Mecca.

An important clue to this fact is that Muslims call this holy precint Haram which is a deviation of the Sanskrit term Hariyam, i.e. the precinct of Lord Hari alias Lord Vishnu.

The relevant stanza reads:

"Ekam Padam Gayayantu
MAKKAYAANTU Dwitiyakam
Tritiyam Sthapitam
Divyam Muktyai Shuklasya Sannidhau"

The allusion is to the Vamana incarnation of Lord Vishnu whose blessed feet were consecrated at three holy sites, namely Gaya, Mecca and Shukla Teertha.

LOL.

Absolutely!
Vikramaditya was carrying a dead body that kept going back up a tree.
Good stories, Eh?
