im new here but ive posted a topic some time ago ("the true meaning of quran lost"),
but if u've read that topic u know from which view i come,
because im starting to believe more and more that people are losing the real meaning of islam
wich is the submission to the will of the single consiousness wich is called "allah",
go to this site "www.servantofthelight.com
" and read some of his articles,
and then really think about it, the quran is much clearer without all the confusion and
religious traditions and understandings the muslim scholars are preaching these days.
notice that every scholar has his own opninion of some aspects of the quran? islam
is starting to look more like christianity, with all the traditions and blind faith and belief
in a god who has feelings and needs worship.
yes, a god is an outside force wich controls the universe and that needs the worship of
people, it is a personification wich is exactly the opposite of the idea of "allah", who is free
and that is the topic i want to talk about, because in that site, the author also explains
why "allah" isnt a definite article "al" and then the word "ilah", but is actually a phrase wich stands for
"allathee la illah", (one who is not a god). here is an email i received from him :
اللَّهِ in Quran is what commonly would be called a phrase if written seperatly. However, in script/text it was choosen to be written as اللَّهِ . What is this phrase and commonly so called word consist of?
ال لا أله
لا أله = is here in this portion لَّهِ of اللَّهِthe shadda represents doubling of letters. The fetha above originally used to be an "alif", called as "dagger alif" (It is still present in old Quranic manuscripts and in caligraphy as dagger alif, but now being changed). So middle verticle line represent two "Lams" of لا and أله . Where as dagger alif above this middle verticle line and above shadda represents two alif of same words.
Now if the concept of "One who is not a god" is clearly understood instead of a god, there is no problem in using word اللَّهِ to refer to our Rabb in its proper sense.
please let me know what you think, at this point i dont know if above is 100% true, but i do
believe that allah is not a person, but the single life-energy that emenates our whole reality, because
the idea of a god on a throne is just ridiculous
