Reader comment on item: Is Allah God?
in response to reader comment: The point of the discussion?

Submitted by Allonehhob (Canada), Sep 29, 2005 at 13:39

You have missed the meaning of the article SUE. We know that Muslims believe in the same GOD that is for Christians and Jews, however, the debate is that we do NOT believe that the message Mohammad delivered was from GOD.

Mohammad in his claims about the Quran "word from GOD" damaged the picture of GOD almighty.

You said that "God in Islam is not '3 persons'. God in Islam doesn't have or need to have family or children to save people. Jesus is a loved prophet by muslims.
God is Light he doesn't look like human beings. So for Muslims, Christians believe in the same God, but they have some different beliefs about him having a child and so on."

GOD in Christianity is not 3 persons.

You believe that JESUS is Roh Allah, that GOD loved Jesus so much, that Jesus made so many miracles most importantly is defeating death and bringing people out from death to life, you believe also that JESUS is the only sinless person in the history of humanity and you believe that his birth was a miracle from "Sitna Myryam" Holly Mary mother of Jesus. You believe that Jesus will come at the end of the world to judge the living and the dead; you believe that Marry is the holiest woman in the history of humanity.

I don't see much difference in what we both believe. The word Jesus is son of GOD does not mean that GOD was married and had a son, we Christian believe that GOD almighty is the creator and was not created, the same as you do.

We both agree that there is nothing impossible in the way of GOD almighty, In Christianity we believe in Trinity, the father the son and the Holy Spirit all in one GOD. It doesn't mean that we believe in 3 or 2 GODs nor it means that GOD delivered a baby. We believe in ONE GOD who is capable of having three identities, it is like the heat and the light that are identities of the Sun. another example is like three joints in one finger.

Jesus who we both believe that never delivered a fake message to humanity, revealed the trinity fact to us through his life and through the new testaments. This fact was revealed in the Old Testament thousands of years before Christ.

Can anyone in the world explain the secrets of life, birth and death are something that no human brain can understand, however they are fact, the same with trinity, and JESUS identity, it is maybe hard to understand but it doesn't make it false.

"So there's no point arguing about the God now, because there are a lot more differences between the 3 believes.
Besides, I keep wondering, why should muslims keep proving to others what and why they believe??? Is it because Muslims respect the other religions and the freedom of faith, as per the verse of Quran that means' you have your religion and I have mine'. ( i will not quote it here cause i only have a german translation of the quoran and not an english one). so they don't start any debate about any other religion themselves. while they're usually critisized by others.

Please everyone know that most of the muslims are convinced about what they believe, and they have logic for it, and they are not convinced with other religions also with logic. And they could very much enter such arguments about others religions as well. Beause muslims know very well why they chose not to be christians or jews or whatever. They just don't like to offend others.

...Whoever is really interested to learn about Islam or any other religion can do that through books and internet, and then can ask a polite question about why this or that is the way it is. I personally do a lot of readings in many religions, and i keep my offensive comments to myself. There's no point of making eachother prove the reason we believe in something. this would be endless, and it would only lead to stubborn irrespectable discussions.

As simple as the question is God Allah, i could give a question about why Jesus is the son of God?? and then he is killed. Can't God save his own son? Does he have to kill his own son to forgive people? Is God, ALMIGHTY, the one who created the whole universe uncapable of just forgiving the people cause he's so loving and caring about his creatures? Does he have to sacrifice his son for it?

A lot of other questions about many other religions could be written, and would only lead to endless discussion.

So please just live and let live, and try all to respect the other no matter how different he is. At the end we are all human beings. we surely have a lot of nice things to share.
But it's really offending being always asked to prove why u believe in something."

Answer

I agree, if any of the Muslims do not agree with this article, then there is no point that they criticize Christianity and claim that bibles are corrupt, it is funny though that you believe in interfaith dialogue if this is your response to the article..
