Bismi Allah words are routine incantation in Islamic rituals, such as: attending a prayer, marriage, eating, drinking, reading, writing, sleeping, waking up, walking down, seating down, standing up, running, playing, urinating, kissing, copulating, sitting for an examination, visiting a doctor, setting out on a journey….and whatnot.

 ABSTRACT
 This essay painstakingly analyses Allah, the Islamic God. Allah is at the core of religion of Islam. Every act, every ritual, every
 J 
ihad 
, every Islamic incursion, everyIslamic bloodshed, every Islamic law is designed for only one purpose²to pleaseAllah. Who this Allah is? Where did He come from? Where does He live now? Whatare His daily activities? How is His temperament? What are His likes and dislikes?Does Allah have an Executive Office?²how does that office look like? Does Allahhave a Throne? Does Allah have a physical body or is Allah just amorphous²withoutany corporeal existence ±but only an invisible, incomprehensible, a never±to±be± understood entity? These are extremely blasphemous questions. None the less, thesequestions haunt every Muslim¶s mind from the moment he hears Allah¶s name to themoment of his last breath. But he never gets any satisfactory answers to these perennial questions. For eternity, Allah would like to remain an enigma to theMuslims. Islamists always advance this mysterious, elusive nature of Allah as theepitome of Islam²Allah has to remain obscure, recondite and ephemeral²this iswhat makes Islam great²the hide±and±seek game of Allah with His devotees. Thisessay is an attempt to remove this antediluvian, outdated and irrational method tounderstand Allah. The most surprising result of this enquiry about Allah is that: Allahis not at all a mystery. He is just like any one of us²a living and breathing human being, so to speak! Allah is not esoteric; neither is He hiding from us. He lived, yes,with Muhammad, but did not die with Muhammad. Based on irrefutable evidences,this essay will tell the story of Allah and how Muhammad advanced Allah as a deityto be worshipped²just because he wanted to be worshipped²in the name of Allah,in the manner the pagans worshipped Allah.

The very first two words in every
 sura
(chapter) in the Holy Qur¶an, are
 Bismi Allah
 (sometimes written as
 B
ismillah or 
 B
asmallah)
which, translated into English mean:
 In the name of Allah
. The only exception is s
ura 9
(
Sura
 B
araat 
or 
Sura at-Taubat 
).The reason why these two words (I mean,
 B
ismi Allah)
are missing from
 sura 9
is thatit is a continuation of 
 sura 8
(
 spoils of war 
)²during compilation of the Qur¶an(probably, during Uthmanic compilation), this
 sura (sura 9)
was separated out from
 
 sura 8
. There are no word/words holier than those two words. In Islamic parlancethose two words are of supreme importance in almost all religious rituals. Truly,
 B
ismi Allah
are the key words which unravel the mystery of Allah.
 Bismi Allah
words are routine incantation in Islamic rituals, such as: attending a prayer, marriage, eating, drinking, reading, writing, sleeping, waking up, walkingdown, seating down, standing up, running, playing, urinating, kissing, copulating,sitting for an examination, visiting a doctor, setting out on a journey«.and whatnot.The only times these two extraordinarily holy words are not invoked are: Islamic beheading, slaughtering an animal, waging a war (
 J 
ihad)
, defecating and visitinggraves. The words used in these occasions are;
 Allahu Akbar 
.
Thanks to the Islamistterrorists and the snuff videos on Islamic beheading and decapitation shown in theInternet, I do not have to write much about these two other hallowed words of Islam.The world has already associated these two words (I mean
 Allahu Akbar)
with terror,evil and murder. Curiously, one might notice that the most consecrated words, i.e.
 B
ismi Allah
are not announced during the cacophony of Islamic cry for prayer (
 Azan).
Instead, we hear 
 Allahu Akbar 
(three times) at the beginning and towards the end.
 B
ismi Allah
words are not Muhammad¶s invention. The pagans in Mecca used thosetwo sanctified words, though infrequently, in most of their rituals as they alsoconsidered Allah to be their supreme deity or God. They called this ritual
Tasmiya.
Its probable origin is from the Jewish custom of invoking
 HaShem
when they recited theTorah. It is not clear, who invented this custom²but it is certainly Muhammad whosteadfastly instituted this tradition (invoking
 B
ismi Allah)
as a compulsory universal practice for the Muslims. As you proceed diligently with this essay, you willunderstand why Muhammad had made it obligatory to cite
 B
ismi Allah
in everyoccasion I mentioned previously.Thus, it is important that we meticulously dissect these two valuable words:
 B
ismi Allah,
which are the roots of all Islamic acts. This will help us to understand themindset of Allah, which in turn is the key in understanding the state of mind of Muhammad and his religion, Islam. This is the prime focus of this essay²to decipher an esoteric Allah and His inseparable partner Muhammad.
 
The readers might find that certain sections are repetitive²to some extent. Ithappened simply because the Qur¶an and ahadith are repetitive. I tried to avoidrepetition as far as possible, but in a few cases this (repetition) could not be avoidedall together.

During the last few months I have received many e±mails from readers who were verycurious to know why I have been so silent. I am so flabbergasted by their show of sincere warmth, unbound encouragement and good advice, that I shall be doinginjustice to these readers if I fail to formally thank them for their genuine love,affection and understanding. I never knew that my writings could move people. Ithought my essays were trash²to be thrown in the dustbin of history. The onlyrewards, so far, I received were hate mails²hundreds of them and threats to kill me²  just for speaking my mind. So, when I read e±mails from those readers who truthfully
 
demonstrate their empathy for me, it brings much ardor in me²the ardor to continuewith my pen. I feel very emotional reading those heartfelt e±mails. A few readerswere concerned about my safety when the Islamist terrorists issued death
 fatwa
toslaughter us. Their list also included I. To these genuine well±wishers, I would like toextend a big thank.²You are the persons for whom I would like to leave all mydedications²so posterity will not forget what we stood up for, ±a world devoid of religious anarchy and religious bigotry. You are the harbingers²the fulfillment of thelonging for a world free of religious insanity.Let us now begin with the µBeginning¶²the nature of Allah.
Allah is Anthropomorphic (i)
Allah is for real.
Muslims often think of their God, Allah, to be someone who is omnipresent,omnipotent, shapeless, infallible, ever-awake and rules the world through His absolutecommandments as enshrined in the holy Qur¶an. According to many Islamistapologists, none could comprehend the nature and extent of Allah, the Islamic God.Many of these erudite scholars write prolix essays filled with Islamic drivels. Theywill write, extolling various features of the invisible, vacuous, incomprehensible andimpenetrable Allah. Imbued with utmost devotion to Allah, many Muslims, five timesa day, will seek bounty and forgiveness from Him. What do you think this means?Obviously, there is some kind of contradiction here. On one hand, during conversingloosely, they will portray the concept of Allah as someone who is unreal andephemeral, while during prayer they will consider Allah to be like a real entity whohas eyes to see, ears to hear and has the physical means to deliver to the faithful alltheir requests. So, what is the correct situation²a non-physical, unreal, unseen,ephemeral Allah or a real, temporal, physical deity? Believe it or not: when we searchthe Islam¶s main sources: the Qur¶an, Hadith, Sirah (Muhammad¶s biography) andSharia, we invariably derive one simple conclusion²that Allah, truly is for real, thatHe, Himself had written the Qur¶an with His own hands and that He, truly metes out justice and bounties with His own hands.To begin with, an impeccable Islamic scholar, Ali Dashti contends that most Islamicscholars believe that just like human beings Allah has limbs and organs (68:42).Thismeans: Allah is anthropomorphic!²with real hands, eyes, ears, legs, feet and body!Quoting from an immaculate Islamic source (Abu µAmer), Ali Dashti says thataccording to real Islam Allah has limbs and organs like a human being. Abu µAmer uses verse 68:42 to describe the true nature of Allah. Here is what Dashti writes:Abu µAmer ol±Qorashi, a Moor from Majorca who died at Baghdad in524/1130, declared that it was heretical to understand the sentence³There is nothing similar to Him´ in verse 9 of 
 sura 42(osh±Showra)
 (this is verse 42:11in the Qur¶an translation of Yusuf Ali²author¶snote) as meaning what it says; it meant, in his opinion, that nothingresembles God in respect of His divinity, because ³God possesses
