Reader comment on item: Is Allah God?
in response to reader comment: Nuray - interesting answers, but still more questions

Submitted by Nuray (Germany), Jun 10, 2006 at 16:47

Sorry to answer late.

You submitted that

(1) "You acknowledge that God exists but you can't imagine him/her/it. So How did man know that it was God issuing these words, if you can't imagine what god looks like/feels like/sounds like?? Do you believe in angels? An angel gave the word of God to mohammad, why couldn't god do it him/her/it..self? How did Mohammad know what an angel was? How? Who told him? God or the Angel?"

I don´t want to imagine God. If so anything that I can imagine becomes God. That´s the reason why I don´t give credit to trinity. We Muslims believe God without the imagination. We just feel it. I like this idea. I believe the unknown things that Quran says they exists. I don´t need to see angels. Quran says two angels record what I have done along my life. One for recording and the other oen for backup. It is meaningful. Biographer of Muhammad (peace upon him) tells the details what he felt when he saw the angel. His cousin who were Christian told him what he saw was the angel that came to previous messengers.

(2) "Do you think that all religions worship the same God? Or all other religions are false even though they've been around longer than Islam?"

There can´t be more than one God. If not, all religions are fake. Islam corrects the fatal mistakes previous religions. I call it last version of God words.

(3) "Well no….you just don't know. God may have had his/her/it's own creator, and so the question would continue…. The question does need to asked but noone can answer it."

God can't be depend on others existance to exist. We Muslims believe that God is one.

(4) "This one's great…. All creatures pray to God, or is it just Allah? Two things here. You believe this on the basis of words written in a book. Did old Gabriel whisper this old nutshell into mohammads ear? Secondly, are they saying they final words before the slaughterman slits their throat? Or before they kill another animal for food? Basically you're saying that all animals are aware of God. By that token all carnivores are murderers…no? …including us! God's word states that thou shalt not kill, or is it alright for us because we are the apex predator and need to eat?"

I believe in what is wriiten in our book. This doesn´t make me a blind believer. Do I have right to create a religion, a God according to my wishful thinkings? Out of question. Humans and animals are part of the nature. One creature eat others. If we are aware of God why not animals? We area all creatures of the Creator Allah.

(5) "So you're saying that religion is the vessel of war and conquest. That must be all religions yeah? Or are you saying that all religions bar Islam are warmongers and using religion to further themselves? There is more conflict in the world due to religion than anything else.

If you read history of mankind religions play important role at every century. It is not only reason to go to war but world faces deadly religious wars" One can see the conflict between Israel and Palestine as religous one but actually it is nothing but power conflict in Middle East.

(6) "So there's only one God, so all religions must worship the same God, yes?" Exactly.

(7) You are only talking about people who have done wrong. What about innocents? For instance those who were vaporised when an airliner plunged into their building one morning, or the thousands killed every time there is a major earthquake, or tsunami, or babies that die of TB and other illnesses, cancer sufferers. How can you sit there and say that it was because of a bad decision that they made?

No one has power to decide where, when and how to die. This is the decision of God. Who can judge God?

(8) Where indeed……? I don´t know . Should I

  1. who lives there? Non-Muslims

Whoah!!.... This can be taken two ways either all non muslims will go to hell. So that's more than 4 million people condemned to hell because they don't follow Islam. This is a very bigoted view but it is the view I believe you believe. Maybe this is what Islam is about. Maybe this is what every muslim is being taught. Maybe this shows that Islam is not a religion of compassion or peace, at least not the version you believe in.

Or you are saying that a muslim that is evil is not actually a muslim. This is the easy cop out for muslims. "but he is not a true muslim" …..but then you go to say that Hilter was a Christian and have a go at anyone who says he wasn't.

Plus, are you sure there are no muslims there? I think the list of potentials is growing by the day. Are you on that list? ….you could be you know!!!

God is the owner of the judgement day. God is chosen Islam as the best path to heaven.It is God´s decision not ours. Only real Muslims can enter to heaven. I am not a perfect Muslim. Actually I am not a perfect person. But I am doing my best to live peacefully without hurting others. I hope that Allah forgive me. Being a Muslim is not a free ticket to heaven. Every Muslim is very well aware of this fact,

(9) Allah is the owner of Judgement day.

Really?! Did he/she/it tell you? Or did you read it on the internet?

The book of God , which say so, is enough for me. Electronic version of Quran exists on the web. Then I can say yes. I read it on the internet.

I will continue ..

Best Regards
