Nuray and all - Any image of ALLAH which is considered to be a GOD, does not exist.

Reader comment on item: Is Allah God?

Not ALLAH as explained by Mohammed, but the image of ALLAH in peoples' mind, that is often a GOD, does not exist. As far as your version of ALLAH is a GOD and is not what is referrred to as ALLAH in the Koran, you do not know ALLAH. ALLAH cannot be compared onto GOD, that is, we cannot take ALLAH as GOD, because ALLAH cannot be compared to any other being that we may have the imagination of. The Koran says that in the Chapter of Ikhlas.

Taking ALLAH as a GOD is a big mistake. Mohammed (pbuh) said "there is no GOD. (la ilaha)" And then he explained what is referrred to as ALLAH.

Avoid taking ALLAH as a GOD as you were imposed by your surrounding by way of conditioning. ALLAH is not a GOD out there and you cannot compare ALLAH onto a GOD. Therefore you need to read and learn what is referred to as ALLAH by Mohammed (pbuh) as in the Koran.

...As long as you do not read books you cannot advance and you remain limited with your, one single person's experiences and knowledge, instead of learning from many thinking brains. You do not need to accept all that you read but you need to learn them for yourself.
