Posted May 19, 2007 by anasqayyim
Categories: Debates & Dialogues

Messianic_Teddybear: how did he disprove it?

Onomat Al-Sufi Al-Shafie: those concepts are found in christianity not Islam
Messianic_Teddybear: yes
Onomat Al-Sufi Al-Shafie: Islam has the purest concept of God
Messianic_Teddybear: they are found in scripture
Onomat Al-Sufi Al-Shafie: in His Oneness
Messianic_Teddybear: exactly
Messianic_Teddybear: not really
Onomat Al-Sufi Al-Shafie: we never associate Him with anything
Messianic_Teddybear: cause allah is not G-d my friend
Onomat Al-Sufi Al-Shafie: how is He not God?
Onomat Al-Sufi Al-Shafie: who is God Yahweh?
Onomat Al-Sufi Al-Shafie: lol

Messianic_Teddybear: do you know where that name comes from?
Onomat Al-Sufi Al-Shafie: whims and fancy
Onomat Al-Sufi Al-Shafie: that’s where

Messianic_Teddybear: christian bible contain allah for G-d in arabic true
Messianic_Teddybear: but as a WORD
Onomat Al-Sufi Al-Shafie: i’ve checked the Bible
Onomat Al-Sufi Al-Shafie: in Hebrew
Onomat Al-Sufi Al-Shafie: no tetragrammaton mate
Onomat Al-Sufi Al-Shafie: the migic word
Onomat Al-Sufi Al-Shafie: magic*
Onomat Al-Sufi Al-Shafie: is concocted

Messianic_Teddybear: like we use the word G-d for the creator
Messianic_Teddybear: in islam
Messianic_Teddybear: allah is a NAME
Onomat Al-Sufi Al-Shafie: what you have is adonai and elohei
Messianic_Teddybear: one of his 99 names
Onomat Al-Sufi Al-Shafie: yes..it is
Messianic_Teddybear: not a wod
Messianic_Teddybear: word
Messianic_Teddybear: in arabic there is but one main word for G-d
Messianic_Teddybear: and thats allah
Onomat Al-Sufi Al-Shafie: exactly
Messianic_Teddybear: christians who speak arabic simply have no other word for the creator to use
Messianic_Teddybear: thats why its in their bibles
Messianic_Teddybear: but as a word
Messianic_Teddybear: not a name
Onomat Al-Sufi Al-Shafie: it’s also based on Eloh
Onomat Al-Sufi Al-Shafie: same word
Onomat Al-Sufi Al-Shafie: Eloh
Onomat Al-Sufi Al-Shafie: found in the hebrew text

Messianic_Teddybear: you are partially right in that
Messianic_Teddybear: its based on el
Messianic_Teddybear: but not eloh
Onomat Al-Sufi Al-Shafie: el is the root
Onomat Al-Sufi Al-Shafie: yes

Messianic_Teddybear: el stands for one
Onomat Al-Sufi Al-Shafie: then you have the word eloh
Onomat Al-Sufi Al-Shafie: or alaha in aramaic

Messianic_Teddybear: allah stems from en lil
Messianic_Teddybear: which is sumerian in origine
Messianic_Teddybear: not arabic
Messianic_Teddybear: or hebrwe
Onomat Al-Sufi Al-Shafie: right
Onomat Al-Sufi Al-Shafie: all languages are connected one to the other

Messianic_Teddybear: actually not allah
Messianic_Teddybear: btu al ilah does
Onomat Al-Sufi Al-Shafie: refer to Grim’s theory
Messianic_Teddybear: al ilah also does not mean the god
Messianic_Teddybear: liek so many muslims say
Messianic_Teddybear: but it means the deity
Onomat Al-Sufi Al-Shafie: deity is another word for God
Onomat Al-Sufi Al-Shafie: ilah
Onomat Al-Sufi Al-Shafie: in arabic
Onomat Al-Sufi Al-Shafie: means one that is worshipped
Onomat Al-Sufi Al-Shafie: al ilah
Onomat Al-Sufi Al-Shafie: means The one that is worshipped

Messianic_Teddybear: elohim is used in hebrew in 2 forms
Messianic_Teddybear: plural
Onomat Al-Sufi Al-Shafie: i know
Messianic_Teddybear: and singular
Onomat Al-Sufi Al-Shafie: plural of number
Messianic_Teddybear: elohim is a plural intensive
Onomat Al-Sufi Al-Shafie: and plural of respect
Onomat Al-Sufi Al-Shafie: the royal plural

Messianic_Teddybear: applied to G-d its strictly singular
Onomat Al-Sufi Al-Shafie: we have the same thing in arabic
Messianic_Teddybear: like eloah
Messianic_Teddybear: applied to pagan deities its plural
Messianic_Teddybear: ashoreth is called elohim
Messianic_Teddybear: yet asthoreth is a female noun
Onomat Al-Sufi Al-Shafie: right
Messianic_Teddybear: moses was called elohim
Messianic_Teddybear: even Jesus was
Onomat Al-Sufi Al-Shafie: yep
Messianic_Teddybear: but applied to the creator its always strictly singular
Messianic_Teddybear: trinetarians seem to conviniently forget that
Messianic_Teddybear: lol
Onomat Al-Sufi Al-Shafie: they pervert the language
Messianic_Teddybear: yup
Messianic_Teddybear: as they pervert his word
Messianic_Teddybear: not to mention deity
Messianic_Teddybear: let me outline what oneness really is about
Messianic_Teddybear: from a biblical perspective
Onomat Al-Sufi Al-Shafie: ok
Messianic_Teddybear: G-d created the Son
Messianic_Teddybear: he was not co eternal as trinetarians claim
Onomat Al-Sufi Al-Shafie: of course he did
Messianic_Teddybear: he created him through his word
Onomat Al-Sufi Al-Shafie: brb eating
Onomat Al-Sufi Al-Shafie: just go on

Messianic_Teddybear: oh ok
Onomat Al-Sufi Al-Shafie: i’m reading
Onomat Al-Sufi Al-Shafie: but my hands are oily

Messianic_Teddybear: john 1:1
Onomat Al-Sufi Al-Shafie: lol
Messianic_Teddybear: and in john 1:!4 we see G-d creating the Son in mary’s womb
Messianic_Teddybear: 1:14
Messianic_Teddybear: the name given to this Son was Jesus
Messianic_Teddybear: or Yeshua
Messianic_Teddybear: which means Yah saves
Messianic_Teddybear: Yeshua however never said i am the Son
Messianic_Teddybear: or that hte Son had sent him
Messianic_Teddybear: he said the father had sent him
Messianic_Teddybear: and that the father dwelleth in him
Messianic_Teddybear: and that he and the father are one
Messianic_Teddybear: why would he say that if he was only the Son right
Messianic_Teddybear: then he says he is the comforter
Messianic_Teddybear: in john 14
Messianic_Teddybear: and in john 14:16 we read waht the comforter is
Messianic_Teddybear: the Holy Spirit
Messianic_Teddybear: there we have the G-dhead
Messianic_Teddybear: Father
Messianic_Teddybear: Son
Messianic_Teddybear: Holy Spirit
Messianic_Teddybear: the 3 roles of our creator in his omnipresence
Messianic_Teddybear: or modes
Messianic_Teddybear: hench the term modalist
Messianic_Teddybear:
Messianic_Teddybear: this is G-d’s deity
Messianic_Teddybear: and it has a name
Messianic_Teddybear: colosians 2:9
Messianic_Teddybear: Yeshua
Messianic_Teddybear: both christians today and muslims allocate Jesus to mary’s fleshly offspring
Messianic_Teddybear: muslims because they see him juste as a prophet
Messianic_Teddybear: christians because they know jack shit about scripture or do not want to know
Messianic_Teddybear: lol
Messianic_Teddybear: but he is all these modes
Messianic_Teddybear: G-d perse
Messianic_Teddybear: Yeshua
Messianic_Teddybear: he is incarnated in what you call Yeshua
Messianic_Teddybear: this incarnation is permanent
Messianic_Teddybear: right now Yeshua is sitting at the right hand of the Father in heaven
Onomat Al-Sufi Al-Shafie: right
Onomat Al-Sufi Al-Shafie: you see
Onomat Al-Sufi Al-Shafie: we believe he never got crucified
Onomat Al-Sufi Al-Shafie: as in
Onomat Al-Sufi Al-Shafie: killed

Messianic_Teddybear: remember G-d is omnipresent
Onomat Al-Sufi Al-Shafie: on the cross
Messianic_Teddybear: i know that
Onomat Al-Sufi Al-Shafie: he was saved
Onomat Al-Sufi Al-Shafie: hence his name
Onomat Al-Sufi Al-Shafie: Yeshua

Messianic_Teddybear: and that it only appeared as such
Messianic_Teddybear: etc
Onomat Al-Sufi Al-Shafie: God saves
Onomat Al-Sufi Al-Shafie: he was saved
Onomat Al-Sufi Al-Shafie: right moving on

Messianic_Teddybear: according to islam he was
Messianic_Teddybear: not according to the Bible
Onomat Al-Sufi Al-Shafie: about the Father dwelling in Jesus
Onomat Al-Sufi Al-Shafie: you got this from Paul
Onomat Al-Sufi Al-Shafie: Paul said

Messianic_Teddybear: yeah
Messianic_Teddybear: so?
Onomat Al-Sufi Al-Shafie: all the fullness of God
Messianic_Teddybear:
Onomat Al-Sufi Al-Shafie: dwelt in Jesus
Messianic_Teddybear: sort of yes
Messianic_Teddybear: it says
Onomat Al-Sufi Al-Shafie: and that entity which dwelt in Jesus
Onomat Al-Sufi Al-Shafie: is the Father

Messianic_Teddybear: for in him dwelleth all the fullness of the godhead bodily
Onomat Al-Sufi Al-Shafie: God
Onomat Al-Sufi Al-Shafie: All of Him dwelt in Jesus
Onomat Al-Sufi Al-Shafie: but you see

Messianic_Teddybear: correction
Onomat Al-Sufi Al-Shafie: the contradiction occurs
Messianic_Teddybear: the father dwelleth in the Son
Onomat Al-Sufi Al-Shafie: that’s what i said?
Messianic_Teddybear: what you call Jesus is not all of his deity
Onomat Al-Sufi Al-Shafie: Paul said
Messianic_Teddybear: no you said G-d dwelleth in Jesus
Onomat Al-Sufi Al-Shafie: All the FULLNESS of God was pleased to dwell in Jesus
Onomat Al-Sufi Al-Shafie: this is what Paul said
Onomat Al-Sufi Al-Shafie: shall i give u the verse

Messianic_Teddybear: no thtas not what he said

Onomat Al-Sufi Al-Shafie: Colossians 2:9
Onomat Al-Sufi Al-Shafie: in the kjv
Onomat Al-Sufi Al-Shafie: the word there is Father

Messianic_Teddybear: 7 And he is before all things, and by him all things consist.
18 And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he might have the preeminence.
19 For it pleased the Father that in him should all fulness dwell;
Onomat Al-Sufi Al-Shafie: yes
Onomat Al-Sufi Al-Shafie: verse 19

Messianic_Teddybear: 9 For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily.
10 And ye are complete in him, which is the head of all principality and power:
Messianic_Teddybear: yes so?
Onomat Al-Sufi Al-Shafie: yep
Messianic_Teddybear: your point?
Onomat Al-Sufi Al-Shafie: that’s what i said
Onomat Al-Sufi Al-Shafie: what were u correcting me on?
Onomat Al-Sufi Al-Shafie: you said i was wrong
Onomat Al-Sufi Al-Shafie: so i gave those two verses
Onomat Al-Sufi Al-Shafie: which proves what i said

Messianic_Teddybear: no
Onomat Al-Sufi Al-Shafie: so i should be asking what ur point is
Messianic_Teddybear: i thought you where refering to col 2:9
Onomat Al-Sufi Al-Shafie: since u said “CORRECTION”

Onomat Al-Sufi Al-Shafie: all of Him

Messianic_Teddybear: yup
Onomat Al-Sufi Al-Shafie: His fullness
Onomat Al-Sufi Al-Shafie: right
Onomat Al-Sufi Al-Shafie: so again
Onomat Al-Sufi Al-Shafie: you see if this is true
Onomat Al-Sufi Al-Shafie: then the contradiction occurs
Onomat Al-Sufi Al-Shafie: in John 17
Onomat Al-Sufi Al-Shafie: and several other places
Onomat Al-Sufi Al-Shafie: but i particularly favour this chapter

Messianic_Teddybear: what verse in john 17?
Onomat Al-Sufi Al-Shafie: the whole chapter
Onomat Al-Sufi Al-Shafie: what is Jesus doing?
Onomat Al-Sufi Al-Shafie: and verse 3 in specific

Messianic_Teddybear: 5 And now, O Father, glorify thou me with thine own self with the glory which I had with thee before the world was.
Messianic_Teddybear: before th world was?/
Onomat Al-Sufi Al-Shafie: i said verse 3
Onomat Al-Sufi Al-Shafie: not 5
Onomat Al-Sufi Al-Shafie: verse 5 proves nothing

Messianic_Teddybear: why not read the context friend
Onomat Al-Sufi Al-Shafie: refer to Jeremiah
Messianic_Teddybear:
Onomat Al-Sufi Al-Shafie: the context
Onomat Al-Sufi Al-Shafie: Jesus is praying for his disciples
Onomat Al-Sufi Al-Shafie: u don’t get my poinmt?
Onomat Al-Sufi Al-Shafie: point*

Messianic_Teddybear: 3 And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.
Onomat Al-Sufi Al-Shafie: lol
Onomat Al-Sufi Al-Shafie: yes..exactly

Messianic_Teddybear: let me put the whole cahpter
Messianic_Teddybear: lol
Onomat Al-Sufi Al-Shafie: how did he say this?
Onomat Al-Sufi Al-Shafie: and who was he talking to?

Messianic_Teddybear: 1 ¶ These words spake Jesus, and lifted up his eyes to heaven, and said, Father, the hour is come; glorify thy Son, that thy Son also may glorify thee:
2 As thou hast given him power over all flesh, that he should give eternal life to as many as thou hast given him.
3 And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.
4 I have glorified thee on the earth: I have finished the work which thou gavest me to do.
5 And now, O Father, glorify thou me with thine own self with the glory which I had with thee before the world was.
6 ¶ I have manifested thy name unto the men which thou gavest me out of the world: thine they were, and thou gavest them me; and they have kept thy word.
7 Now they have known that all things whatsoever thou hast given me are of thee.
Onomat Al-Sufi Al-Shafie: read no need bro
Onomat Al-Sufi Al-Shafie: i’ve read the whole chapter several times
Onomat Al-Sufi Al-Shafie: loll

Messianic_Teddybear: ok i will explain
Messianic_Teddybear:
Onomat Al-Sufi Al-Shafie: please do
Messianic_Teddybear: G-d is omnipresent
Onomat Al-Sufi Al-Shafie: …
Messianic_Teddybear: i know he is not in islam
Onomat Al-Sufi Al-Shafie: he is in Islam as well
Messianic_Teddybear: but in the Bible he is
Onomat Al-Sufi Al-Shafie: but not in His person
Messianic_Teddybear: no
Onomat Al-Sufi Al-Shafie: His being
Onomat Al-Sufi Al-Shafie: since this leads to pantheism
Onomat Al-Sufi Al-Shafie: He is OMNIPRESENT

Messianic_Teddybear: islam says allah exists iwthout a place
Onomat Al-Sufi Al-Shafie: in the sense
Onomat Al-Sufi Al-Shafie: that His vision surpasses everything
Onomat Al-Sufi Al-Shafie: nothing escapes His sight

Messianic_Teddybear: anyway
Onomat Al-Sufi Al-Shafie: and wherever u are
Onomat Al-Sufi Al-Shafie: u can contact him

Messianic_Teddybear: The father
Onomat Al-Sufi Al-Shafie: without problems
Onomat Al-Sufi Al-Shafie: in this He is Omnipresent

Messianic_Teddybear: who is omnipresent G-d
Onomat Al-Sufi Al-Shafie: Omnipresence
Onomat Al-Sufi Al-Shafie: in being
Onomat Al-Sufi Al-Shafie: amounts to paganism
Onomat Al-Sufi Al-Shafie: as it clearly leads to pantheism
Onomat Al-Sufi Al-Shafie: no different from the hindu concept of God
Onomat Al-Sufi Al-Shafie: whereby He permeates the whole Universe

Messianic_Teddybear: says he is well pleased that his (G-d’s) fullness dwelleth in the Son (Christ)

What’s up with the translation?

What’s up with the translation? Muslim to Muhammettilainen? I Disagree. All my life here in Finland, I’ve never heard a single Fin call me a Muhammettilainen. Muslim, in Finnish, would be translated as: Muslim, Muslimi, Muslimilainen. As for Allah(swt), the following translation box, translated Allah(Swt) as, “Hillitä”, which means “To calm down”. So, this brings us back to the question posed in the beginning. What’s up with the translation?

Shaykh Umar Abdul-Rahmaan

Categories: Islamic Figures

Shaykh Umar Abdul-Rahmaan

Shaykh Umar Abdul Rahmaan

02/02/2005 Shaykh Omar Abdur Rahman, the blind Alim, incarcerated in the Springfield Centre (Missouri), sent out the following letter from Prison. Its contents are shocking and humiliating. We reproduce most of it below so that the world would know what the Americans are doing to a respected Muslim Alim.

‘In the name of Allah most Gracious most Merciful’

‘All praise be to Allah Ta’ala, the Lord of the worlds, and peace and blessings be upon the master of the messengers, prophet Muhammad (SAW). Blessings and peace be upon his family, his companions and those who follow him faithfully until the day of Judgement.

‘The conditions in the prison (where I am kept) are very bad and extremely poor. This can be seen from the following:

What they claim about freedom of religion and freedom of worship is all false. I have not been allowed to pray the Jumuah prayers, or even pray in congregation since I arrived at the prison in October, 1995.

There is prejudice and discrimination in their treatment in prison. When other prisoners call for the guards, they hurry to respond. I keep knocking on my Cell door for hours but nobody responds to my needs.

I go for months without my hair and nails cut.

I am kept in solitary confinement, in my situation (Sheikh is blind and suffers from diabetes and is advanced in age) without anyone to help me arrange my belongings. I have no one to converse with day or night, nor am I allowed to socialize with others since there is no one close to my cell, neither Muslim nor anyone else who can speak Arabic. I stay like that day and night. What loneliness, what cruelty? By doing this they want to make me terminally ill to exact revenge because I am a Muslim. Are these the human rights they boasts about so much and fill the air waves and news media, while persecuting us so that we are unable to speak or raise our voice?

Have you heard of the strip searches and exposure of private parts, and stripping people of all their outer and inner garments so that they are as naked as the day they were born? By Allah, this occurs to me everytime a friend or family member visits me (Although I have no relatives in America, all Muslims are my family). Every visit means I have to strip twice. They order me to remove all my clothes, and I wish this was the end of it. Instead, the chief prison guard, named Curling, with another man named Day and several other guards, order me to open my thighs and bend forward. And then, like beasts – I cannot really say it out of shyness and shame, but I will say it to relieve the pressure on myself and to let the Muslim Ummah live up to its duties and responsibilities towards its religion – they search my private parts intimately while they stand around watching and laughing. Groups of guards race around…… The one who spends the longest time looking and inspecting is considered to have done the best job. They humiliate and degrade me in this manner because I am a Muslim and what they do is expressly forbidden by Allah.

And why should they do this? They have found their prey and achieved their goal. What are they looking for in my private parts? Are they looking for weapons, explosives or drugs which I have taken from the prison cell to my visitor or from my visitor to the cell? They do this twice to me on each visit so that I melt from shame and embarrassment and wish that the earth would open up and swallow me rather than they do this to me. Does this please those who protect their religion and honour?

People of manliness and brotherhood. O People of sacrifice and dignity. O Men of Allah! Rise up from your deep slumber. Rise up with your resounding voices. Set out, O Men of Allah, and let your voices be heard in every place, and say it with all your strength and loudly, without fear. Rise up, O Men of Allah and like one body, show the truth and negate the evil. ‘And don’t give in to those who aggress, lest the fire take hold of you.’

Prisons are for scholars or criminals to sleep in? Death has surrounded my Ummah. Say Allaahu Akbar and tell death to live!.

‘Who will wake up the nation that builds its nests on the winds, its feelings numbed and shows no reaction to plots? It is lost if its scholars fill up the cells like sheep. Aren’t there courageous men who fear Allah? Aren’t there strong words to throw the evil and shrink it? Rise up as one! Do not fear loss of income!.’
