Reader comment on item: Is Allah God?
in response to reader comment: MOHAMMED'S ALLAH

You wrote that
"MOHAMMED'S ALLAH "

Why are you inventing new nomenclature yourself? Allah, which means God in Arabic, is not only God of Muhammed, peace upon him. Non-Muslims think that He invented a God himself and called him as Allah. But, Pagan Arabs knew Allah, as written in Quran.

29 - Surah Al-Ankabut
61. If you were to ask them: "Who has created the heavens and the earth and subjected the sun and the moon?" They will surely reply: "Allâh." How then are they deviating (as polytheists and disbelievers)?

They were thinking that angels were daughters of Allah, which is refused in Quran

16 - Surah An-Nahl
57. And they assign daughters unto Allâh! Glorified (and Exalted) be He above all that they associate with Him! . And unto themselves what they desire;

They believed that their idols was helping to Allah which is refused in Quran

53 - Surah An-Najm
23. They(Al-Lât, Al-'Uzza & ) are but names which you have named, you and your fathers, for which Allâh has sent down no authority. They follow but a guess and that which they themselves desire, whereas there has surely come to them the Guidance from their Lord!

Therefore, Allah has been known before Muhammed in Arab peninsula. Your message mislead others at the beginning by saying "MOHAMMED'S ALLAH ". Judaism, Christianity and Islam are originally from Middle East. All these religions refer to one God, Allah.

Only holy books can define the concept of GOD, not human beings mind. First of all, any one who wants to criticize Islam MUST learn theology. Otherwise, it is easy to make mistake like attributing false features to God. No one has luxury to create terminology herself/himself. The more you read the less you make mistake.
