Reader comment on item: Is Allah God?
in response to reader comment: ALLAH AND GOD CANNOT BE THE SAME

Submitted by 1lluminated (United States), Oct 13, 2011 at 15:39

Illah was the moon god in preislamic times. Allah says in the quran, "I created the day and the night, the sun and the moon". Al meaning (The same as El in hebrew) Lah means God so its The God (one and only, with no son that was begotten).

It does not prohibit architecture, unless you're talking about countries who play the game of who can build the tallest building? That is a sign of arrogance, "oh i can build a taller building than you" who was an example of arrogance and pride? The anti-christ correct, he thought he was better than Adam, this is the same reason, man starts to think their more powerful than God. If you study the parts of the soul you'll understand arrogance, pride, desire, sex, food these all belong to the lower self as a human who was built with a brain which is the intellect is supposed to control the ego so it doesn't get out of hand.

Your arrogance and pride can't understand the reason behind marrying 4 wives, in society at that time women were the majority for every 1 man there were 8 women, even in America nowadays if every man got married there would still be 8 million unwed women, what do you do in that situation, fornication and adultery are not options either? At that time the men were allowed to marry 4 wives, but there are a lot of rules pertaining to it. For instance, you have to treat every wife equally if you cannot, then you must divorce them, you can only marry another if the first agrees, also the other wives that were taken were not for sexual purposes the majority of them were taken because their husbands died and needed a support system, don't take my word go and read about it.

That's the most ridiculous answer I've ever heard, where do you get your information CNN? Why would I commit suicide and homicide at the same time, two of the worst sins in Islam and get promised 72 virgins to go to heaven. If I go to heaven the last thing I want is sex because the idea of heaven is a greater accomplishment than serving the lower desire of an animalistic act. Check out the uglytruth site, talks about the idea of where this "72 virgins" came from.

No Allah does not prohibit music and songs, music that is harsh on the soul and leads you away from thinking about "him" or leads you to wrong acts then it is considered haram or wrong.

The word infidel is no where in the Arabic language. The crusaders would call people infidels that didn't covert to their ways, which were then either prosecuted or killed.

The Jews were killed after they broke a treaty in Islam, during the time of the messenger. If a Muslim kills a Jew or Christian for whatever reason other than protecting himself he is damned to hell, killing 1 person is like killing all humanity. Radical Islam teaches otherwise but its not the original form of Islam, its an extreme sect and they are a small majority. Extremism and fanatacism in Islam is forbidden has to be moderation.
