Is Allah God?

Reader comment on item: Is Allah God?

Submitted by Jimmie Simmons (United States), Nov 22, 2005 at 14:54

As I read many of your comments about who God is I am very disappointed by many of your answers; both Christians and Muslims. Many of you do not know God and never will because you are fighting with words that you cannot understand figuratively or literally.

Many of you misrepresent God in your actions. That is why you do not know him. Language barriers presents problems when facts are not interpreted properly. Wheather Allah or Jesus fully represents the Divine one does not make as much difference as what you reflect to others as you go from day to day. It is not so much what Muhammed wrote or said as a prophet or even Jesus for that matter. But what matters is do you have God in you. You can recite the writings of all of the prophets and still miss the mark of God because you do not fulfill the obligation of being an ambassador of God.

I do believe that Muhammed had an experience with God but he was just like many of us are today-instead of adding it to what has brought us to that point, we take it and go in a direction that God never intended us to go, thereby, creating a false sense of divinity and leading others astray. This has been done in the Christian world also.

For your information, GOD IS LOVE. When you encounter a religion that does not teach love (pure love and concern) for all mankind then you have a religion that is not of GOD, so, there is no need to tag a name to him wheather it be Jesus or Allah because it does not represent Him if in fact God is either.
