The Nothingburger in the sky.
To get to the nub of this column, Allah is a “nothingburger,” a ghost,  much like Robert Mueller’s pursuit of a connection between Donald Trump and the Russians.  Allah is as much a creation of man as is Casper the Friendly Ghost, a cartoon character drawn on boards by illustrators with a shot glass of whisky at hand for films, comic books, and newspaper panels.
As I state in my review of Robert Spencer’s  The History of Jihad,”  Allah is a malign figment of men’s imagination:
My own humble interpretation, as a novelist( (and as an atheist), of the history of Islam, is that it has been fundamentally a work-in-progress, with no finishing due-date contemplated or even in sight.”
This would mean that the Koran, the Hadith, the Sunna, and other Islamic texts, such as Reliance of the Traveler, were composed and expanded the same way Casper’s habits and actions were developed out of whole cloth by cartoonists, building on the original concept as a marketable character. Or, in Islam’s case, creating Mohammad as a marketable deity for the endless population of the gullible and for adults stilll locked in their credulous childhood.  It would be interesting to learn who invented Mohammad as a Robin Hoodish “nice guy” brigand and when it was invented and told tales of him, tales that would eventually be inscribed in the Hadith and have him develop into a sword-wielding Grinch, and then in other “sacred” texts relating to Mohammed. See the handful of Koranic excerpts below on how not to  Win Friends and Influence People .
You will notice that Casper (aka Allah) is always encouraging a fight with infidels and disbelievers. Or recommending that you randomly stab them, or run over them with vehicles, or explode suicide vests on subway trains, or in the middle of concerts, or rape them. I don’t recall Casper ever wanting to be friends with anyone, or offering someone help with a problem with a wife, or how to celebrate Christmas, or how to offer a chocolate brownie without lopping off a person’s head Jacobin style.
Casper (aka Allah), as a ghost, and which can be seen here, does not endorse haunting anyone in jihad. His main shill, Mohammad, insists on immediate and direct action.  
Qur’an Surah 2:191-193: “And slay them wherever you come upon them, and expel them from where they expelled you; persecution is more grievous than slaying. But fight them not by the Holy Mosque until they should fight you there; then, if they fight you, slay them — such is the recompense of unbelievers, but if they give over, surely Allah is All-forgiving, All-compassionate. Fight them, till there is no persecution and the religion is Allah’s; then if they give over, there shall be no enmity save for evildoers.”
Qur’an Surah 4:34: “Men are the managers of the affairs of women for that Allah has preferred in bounty one of them over another, and for that they have expended of their property. Righteous women are therefore obedient, guarding the secret for Allah’s guarding. And those you fear may be rebellious admonish; banish them to their couches, and beat them. If they then obey you, look not for any way against them; Allah is All-high, All-great.”
 Qur’an Surah 4:89: “They wish that you should disbelieve as they disbelieve, and then you would be equal; therefore take not to yourselves friends of them, until they emigrate in the way of Allah; then, if they turn their backs, take them, and slay them wherever you find them; take not to yourselves any one of them as friend or helper.”
 Qur’an Surah 5:33: “This is the recompense of those who fight against Allah and His Messenger, and hasten about the earth, to do corruption there: they shall be slaughtered, or crucified, or their hands and feet shall alternately be struck off; or they shall be banished from the land. That is a degradation for them in this world; and in the world to come awaits them a mighty chastisement.”
 Qur’an Surah 5:38: “And the thief, male and female: cut off the hands of both, as a recompense for what they have earned, and a punishment exemplary from Allah; Allah is All-mighty, All-wise.”
 Qur’an Surah 8:12: “When thy Lord was revealing to the angels, ‘I am with you; so confirm the believers. I shall cast into the unbelievers’ hearts terror; so smite above the necks, and smite every finger of them!’”
Qur’an Surah 8:39: “Fight them, till there is no persecution and the religion is Allah’s entirely; then if they give over, surely Allah sees the things they do.”
 Qur’an Surah 8:60: “Make ready for them whatever force and strings of horses you can, to terrify thereby the enemy of Allah and your enemy, and others besides them that you know not; Allah knows them. And whatsoever you expend in the way of Allah shall be repaid you in full; you will not be wronged.”
Qur’an Surah 9:5: “Then, when the sacred months are drawn away, slay the idolaters wherever you find them, and take them, and confine them, and lie in wait for them at every place of ambush. But if they repent, and perform the prayer, and pay the alms, then let them go their way; Allah is All-forgiving, All-compassionate.”
 Qur’an Surah 9:29: “Fight those who believe not in Allah and the Last Day and do not forbid what Allah and His Messenger have forbidden — such men as practise not the religion of truth, being of those who have been given the Book — until they pay the tribute out of hand and have been humbled.”
In lieu of 72 virgins
Qur’an Surah 9:111: “Allah has bought from the believers their selves and their possessions against the gift of Paradise; they fight in the way of Allah; they kill, and are killed; that is a promise binding upon Allah in the Torah, and the Gospel, and the Koran; and who fulfils his covenant truer than Allah? So rejoice in the bargain you have made with Him; that is the mighty triumph.”
Qur’an Surah 9:123: “O believers, fight the unbelievers who are near to you; and let them find in you a harshness; and know that Allah is with the god-fearing.”
 Qur’an Surah 47:4: “When you meet the unbelievers, smite their necks, then, when you have made wide slaughter among them, tie fast the bonds; then set them free, either by grace or ransom, till the war lays down its loads. So it shall be; and if Allah had willed, He would have avenged Himself upon them; but that He may try some of you by means of others. And those who are slain in the way of Allah, He will not send their works astray.”
Qur’an 5:3 This day have I perfected your religion for you and completed My favor upon you and have chosen for you Islam as your religion.
Qur’an 9:88 The Messenger and those who believe with him, strive hard and fight with their wealth and lives in Allah’s Cause.
Qur’an 9:5 Fight and kill the disbelievers wherever you find them, take them captive, harass them, lie in wait and ambush them using every stratagem of war.
Qur’an 9:5 Fight and kill the disbelievers wherever you find them, take them captive, harass them, lie in wait and ambush them using every stratagem of war.
Qur’an 9:112 The Believers fight in Allah’s Cause, they slay and are slain, kill and are killed.
Casper (aka Allah) is not the one to approach for advice on which party to attend, or the person to solicit a tip from about which get-together to crash to find the hottest girls (Jewish or otherwise) or the best open bar.
