RE: Allah and His names and attributes
Almighty Allah is the creator of the universe. Each and every thing that exists in this universe has no other creator but Allah. Therefore, Allah Almighty has qualities and attributes which are unique. These attributes of Allah have been mentioned in Quran in the form of Allah’s Names. Quran says “"Allah! There is no god but He! To Him belong the Most Beautiful Names." (Surah Ta Ha 20/8).

There are 99 Names of Allah Almighty mentioned in Quran beside Allah which is the “Ism-e-Zaati” (Personal Name) of God. When we say Allah-o-Akbar, it means that Allah is the Greatest. There is no comparison of anything with Allah. Quran Says “"He is Allah, the Creator, the Evolver, the Bestower of Forms (or colours). To Him belong the Most Beautiful Names: whatever is in the heavens and on earth, does declare His Praises and Glory: and He is the Exalted in Might, the Wise." (Surah Al-Mumtahinah 59/24)

Each name of Almighty Allah describes the unique qualities of Allah and each name gives us a better understanding towards Allah.

RE: Allah and His names and attributes
But platitudes and appellations about God don't tell us a thing about what God is. That Muslims have allowed themselves to be told about God by people who never knew what God is in the first place only proves the gullibility of the human mind when it comes to organized religious authority. Put a little cap on your head and you too can tell the world what God is when you also claim no one knows what God is.

The only place you'll find the truth about what God really is in the Gospel of Humanity. If your religion doesn't know what God is, then there's no spiritual authority in it and unfortunately, that is the case for the Abrahamic religions of Judaism, Pauline Christianity, and Islam, each one only capable of giving platitudes and appellations about God, most of which could just as easily apply to Nature as to God, e.g. the often heard "God is Great".

How can you know this? This is information that nobody on the planet has access to, yet you flaunt it as though it's self-evidently available. Explain yourself. How do I gather this information? Why are you so special?

We would be 1,500 years ahead if it hadn't been for the church dragging science back by its coattails and burning our best minds at the stake

[Just so there is no confusion: I copied this text from one of my posts in a separate discussion, however, this seems like an appropriate discussion to re-post it...]

In addition to listing the attributes of Allah, the Quran is very specific on how it views believers versus non-believers (infidels). And, as is also the case with Christianity, a literal interpretation of holy scripture can be used to justify all manner of violence and brutality.

I suspect that most (or many?) Muslims don't get weighed down with the dogma, but on the flip side, they also seem to remain silent when they are challenged with those parts of the Quran that seem to condone, even encourage, conversion of non-believers at the point of a sword (or bombs).

However, it seems like Islam has backed itself into a corner with regard to the Quran. Islam claims the Quran is the last, true, holy book to be delivered to man by Allah, so anything other than a literal interpretation must be an incorrect interpretation. So how can Islam ever peacefully co-exist with other beliefs and other faiths? To do so would be an offense to Islam, and specifically would break the covenent with Allah. It's a no-win situation.

Perhaps one of our Muslim brothers could clear this up? I would be interested to hear a very specific explanation with regard to our peaceful coexistence.

The silence in response to this question speaks volumes.
