Reader comment on item: Is Allah God?
in response to reader comment: Christians to Islam. Challenge this

Submitted by Nazia (United States), May 1, 2006 at 01:07

Muslims bow to no human or material entity, be it Micheangelo's paintings, idols of the virgin, or rockstars, but Allah ( God). the fact that Muslims pray towards one direction from East and West is an indicator of the Muslims discipline and order, their unity symbolizing the Unity of God. Think if everybody could pray in every direction, then chaos would prevail and Islam is not about chaos but rather universal harmony. IF you refer to Tawaf or Muslims circling of the Kabbah, that again is an act in harmony with the rest of the unvierse for the worship of Allah as every phenomen in the world from the electrons of an atom to the moons, to planets, stars, galaxies, and finally super-galaxies are in constant circular motion.

Your second question only shows the narrowness of your mind. Bible is the No. 1 best seller in English language and not suprisingly most English speakers are Christians. I believe as a billion + Muslims that Bible is word of communicated through his great messenger Jesus son of Mary and the fact that it is the best seller only makes me happy. If Bible is not the best seller in Indonesian or Arabic, it does not make it any less word of God for me.

I don't agree with you on the last part of your question or comment. bible has been tampered with, and the different versions you speak of are additions, ommissions, changes, fabrications etc that originate from the opinions of priests, bishops and other humans over the course of Christian history falsely attributed to God the almighty. THus one should not be surprised that the word trinity has never been mentioned even once in the bible, but sadly today is the founcation of most Christians' belief.

Peace,
