Bravo, Pipes!

Reader comment on item: Is Allah God?

Submitted by Susan (United States), Jun 28, 2005 at 17:54

A balanced, rational article on Islam.

Yes, Islam, Christianity, Judaism are part of same Abrahamic tradition.
Messengers of Torah, Bible, and Quran are all equal in Muslim religion, with Jesus being revered most highly. Muhammad was believed not to have perfected belief in so much as he completed it by saying: all are equal under God. (doesn't U.S. Constitution say the same?) and that there shall be no intermediaries..Being born again, implies a personal, private relationship with God..and how else can one get to know God but through such a relationship. He can't be known intellectually -- he is known through heart and soul -- and that comes from prayer and meditation.

The Prophet didn't really add anything new..he just hit home the message..for all to submit to God..adding to Jesus's message to love thy neighbor as thyself.
