Reader comment on item: Is Allah God? - Continued
in response to reader comment: For Dhimmi No More: "Truth is one, the wise call it by many names"

Submitted by dhimmi no more (United States), Oct 7, 2006 at 08:18

"And the truth is one and the wise call it by many names" or Vedanta dharma (sp?) is a wise way to look at life and living but it is a doctrine that is beyond Allah and his rasul. But what does vedanta dharma have anything to do with what Jesus said? You tell me? Notice that vedanta dharma really means: what you see is the truth. More later.

Look your falsafa is bogus and I do not care about wasting my time or yours on bogus falsafa ... Now I'm going to be blunt again: you are not very focused and you are a very careless reader so I'm going to repeat again what I said:

1. Jesus is supposed to have said while on the cross (is this for real or not? I cannot tell you and I bet you a buck that you cannot tell either): "Eli Eli lama sabachthani" (Palestinian Syriac) (Ilahi Ilahi lama sabaqtani in Christian Arabic). I already have discussed the translation and it is: My God My God when you left me behind (went ahead of me).

Now, to try to read anything more into such sentence is foolish.

2. And no Jesus is not supposed to have used the word: Allah (as the ignorant Ahmad Deedad once said) and even if he did the word God in Syriac is Alaha/Allaha (remember the cognate thing?) and even if he did it does not mean that the Allah of Islam is the same as that of Christianity. Remember Aristotelian logic?

3. So Jesus was asking his God to help him what is your problem with that ? After all your Allah (more later) asks you to go out and kill the polytheists unless they convert to Islam (Q9:5) and to go out and fight ahl al-Kitab until Islam becomes the supreme religion (Q9:29) It means that your Allah is not omnipotnet and he is asking mere human beings to do his messy work. At least jesus is asking his God for help! Big difference.

Now if you do not get this you would really be beyond help or even worse in denial.

Now, are you a Muslim or not? As I said I care less, but you are a Muslim...And this speaks volumes for what Muslim education is all about.
