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

Submitted by A.B. (Turkey), Nov 21, 2005 at 12:32

My dear Nuray,

READing the Koran is deep thinking about the meanings it gives. It is far beyond reading with surface verbalism as it says "won't you think?". One cannot READ Ayat al kursi BEFORE one learns what ALLAH is other than an image of God. Otherwise, as many people, you too fail to understand where the metaphor ends where the reality begins... If you take the ayats of the Koran with mere verbalism, you are fooled into imagining a god out there stitting on a throne above in the sky and expect favor from him. This is not even childish. Think about the verses I posted for you to READ (deep think).

Kursi is not in the sky! Sema is not the sky. They all refer to meanings deep within you. "Sema" is the dimensional realm of "eSma" (the Names, the meanings). The names of ALLAH reveal through you and all of us, through all existence. So, the way that goes to qursi, arsh, heaven are all within you not without you.

Understand, it is the names of "Hayy" and "Kayyum" that holds you "alive". ALLAH is your "sustainer" from within not without. All your existence belongs to ALLAH for ALLAH is the owner of all that you think you possess. (That's why we need to surrender to grasp Islam!)

The permission of ALLAH (as in the ayat al kursi) does not come to you from outside, from a god out there, up in the sky... but from within you, from within your origin, because what is referred to as ALLAH is your Originator. Not a god up in the sky. Give up combating with words against others, instead turn to your essence to understand, look within.

I hope that is enough to make you think that ALLAH, the Originator, is not a GOD out there and cannot be considered so. Read my previous posts again and the book "Mohammed's ALLAH" I suggested before at www.ahmedbaki.com if you want to learn. If you do not read you always turn around the same point and fail to go forward. Avoid from acting like a square shaped wheel.
Submitting....
