Due Diligence in re Who is Allah?

Reader comment on item: Is Allah God? - Continued
in response to reader comment: Allah is not Vedic

zzazz: If I replied with history, you would only attack my sources . . . even the writing of the original bible and gospel itself.

Therefore, I will only ask a few questions which you can research on your own time.

1) Did the Vedic/Indus Empire ever have influence over Arabia?

2) What are the sources of Arabic language, specifically the word Arabia itself. Compare the sanskrit word 'Om' to Arabic script.

3) Where did the Kabaa practice of circumambulation orginate?

4) Did Adam actually build the Kabaa, or was the first Holy of Holies a tent tabernacle which was translated to the first Jewish temple in Jerusalem? If the former, do we have only the word of Mohammed to vouch for this?

The Muslim defense of Mohammad being the true prophet and it being a miracle is unacceptable at any level of jurisprudence, except a sword to one's neck. To dispense with the biblical and archaelogicalrecord is also a vain attempt to discard vast amounts of corroborating physical and documented record. Destruction of evidence/archaelogical record is a crime in itself, for obvious reasons.

If the Muslim religion went face to face against Judeo/Christian history in a court of law, it would be defenseless . . . thus the Islamic tendency to war. For, as the Apostle James opined, The Reason for War is we want what we cannot have.
