God of Abraham...

Reader comment on item: Is Prince Charles a Convert to Islam?
in response to reader comment: How can you be so sure Abraham was a muslim?

Submitted by RMS Rahman (Malaysia), Feb 5, 2009 at 13:14

Zen is right to say that Abraham was neither a Jew nor Christian but definitely he was a Muslim simply because Islam means peace- peace with, and full submission to, his Creator. And Abraham submitted fully to the Wills of his God even when asked to do seemingly rediculous thing like the instruction to slaughter his own son Ismael which in the end was replaced by a sacrificial animal.

As for the name of God you might recall the name 'Eli' or 'Eloy' and in Arabic it is called 'Illah'. With the prefix 'Al' it becomes Allah. U might appreciate that it is said in different tongue but the similarity point to the same Divine Being, the Creator of the seemingly endless universe! To search for the truth, U have to free your soul from the embedded prejudice and hatred and consider that we are all brothers from the seed of Prophet Adam. May God lead U to His Truth. Salaam

Submitting....
