Muhammad (pbuh) and the companions were Anti Idol Worship (Al-Lat and al-Uzza)

I made this article for me when I debating people who accuse Prophet Muhammad and the companions were involved worship the idols surrounding Ka’bah (include al-Lat and al-Uzza). The references taken from the BIOGRAPHIES OF MUHAMMAD.


Taken from The Life of Muhammad translation of Ishaq’s “Sirat Rasul Allah”

  1. Prophet (pbuh) call people to WORSHIP GOD ALONE AND DISAVOW THE IDOLS.

Page 115, under “Ali B. Abu Thalib the First Male To Accept Islam.”

lat and uzza

The following day ‘Ali b. Abu Talib came as the two of them were praying and asked, ‘What is this, Muhammad I’ He replied, ‘It is God’s religion which He has chosen for Himself and sent His apostles with it. “I CALL YOU TO GOD, THE ONE WITHOUT AN ASSOCIATE, TO WORSHIP HIM AND TO DISAVOW AL-LAT AND AL-‘UZZA.” Ali said, ‘This is something that I
have never heard of before today. I cannot decide a matter until I have talked about it with Abu Talib.’ Now the apostle did not want his secret to bedivulged before he applied himself to the publication of his message, so he said, ‘If you do not accept Islam, then conceal the matter.’ ‘Ali tarried that night until God put Islam into his heart. Early next morning he went to the apostle and asked him what his orders were. He said, ‘BEAR WITNESS THAT THERE IS NO GOD BUT ALLAH ALONE WITHOUT ASSOCIATE, AND DISAVOW AL-LAT AND AL-‘UZZA, and renounce rivals.‘ Ali did so and became a Muslim. He refrained from coming to him out of fear ofAbu Talib and concealed his Islam and did not let it be seen. Read more of this post

Childhood of Prophet Muhammad. Abyssinian Christians testified the future of small Muhammad (pbuh).

A learned person told me that what urged his foster-mother to return him (Muhammad) to his mother, apart from what she told his mother, was that a number of Abyssinian Christians saw him with her when she brought him back after he had been weaned. They looked at him, asked questions about him, and studied him carefully, then they said to her, ‘Let us take this boy, and bring him to our king and our country; for he will have a great future. We know all about him.‘ The person who told me this alleged that she
could hardly get him away from them.


The Abyssinina Christians’ scripture foretold the Prophet to come and the description match with small Muhammad (pbuh).

The name “MUHAMMAD” found in the Old Testament.

It’s in The Song of Songs Chapter 5: 16

Hebrew text:

חכו ממתקים וכלו
מחמדים זה דודי
וזה רעי בנות
ירושלם׃

Transliteration:

ChKV MMThQYM VKLV MChMDYM ZH DVDY VZH Ur’yY BNVTh YUrVShLM.

Translation in English:

King James Version
His mouth is most sweet: yea, he is altogether lovely. This is my beloved, and this is my friend, O daughters of Jerusalem.

Now Copy this Hebrew word:

מחמדים

to Google Translation. Result:

muhammadim

If you delete the LAST of Hebrew word, this is what you’ll have:

muhammad

So, the correct translation is:

King James Version
His mouth is most sweet: yea, he is MUHAMMAD. This is my beloved, and this is my friend, O daughters of Jerusalem.

THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN PROPHET MUHAMMAD AND THE CHRISTIANS

In 632 A.D., the leader of Najran came to see Prophet Muhammad with a request. There were 60 visitors. Their leaders were Al Asqaf, Al Aquib Abdul Messiah, Abu Allquama, and his brother Kurz who later became a Muslim. The Jews and the Christians met with the Prophet and argued about Prophet Abraham(pbuh). The Jews said he was a Jew and the Christians said he was a Christian; Sura 3: 80 (Al Imran) describes this event.
CHRISTIANS OF NIJRAN SIGN A PEACEFUL PACT WITH PROPHET MUHAMAMD (pbuh):

The Christians of Najran (south of Makkah) visited the Prophet in Medina in 632 A.D. He allowed the Christians to pray in his Mosque. These Christians prayed facing the east. They accepted to be under the rule of the Prophet and the Muslims. In the pact they would be protected and allowed to practice their religion. At a later time, they became Muslims because of the teachings of Islam and the fair treatment they had received. The Prophet and five of his companions signed the pact with his seal. They were: Abu Sofian,
Gelan Bin Omro, Malek Bin Off, Alaqraeh Bin Habes, and Al Mogerah Bin Shobah. Read Sura 3:55-71.
When the Christians of Najran visited him in Medina, Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) removed his outer robe and placed it on the floor for his visitors to sit on. He always used to greet his guests in this manner. Still today Muslims follow his teachings and
tradition. These Christians slept in Prophet Muhammad’s Mosque for three days and he fed them. Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) borrowed money from Jewish people, and even ate the food that Christians and the Jewish “Themies” people offered the prophet. The “Themy” are the Jews and Christians living under the protection of the Islamic
State.

During the time of Prophet Muhammad (pbuh), a Muslim killed a Christian. The Prophet held a trial and the Muslim confessed to the murder. The Prophet ordered that the Muslim be put to death. During the time of Calipha Omar, another Muslim murdered a
Christian. After providing the man’s guilt, Omar turned the guilty Muslim over to the Christians. The Christians put the man to death. Read more of this post

PROPHECIES ABOUT PROPHET MUHAMMAD IN THE PARSI SCRIPTURE.

PROPHECIES ABOUT PROPHET MUHAMMAD IN
THE PARSI SCRIPTURE.
The Parsi religion is one of the oldest religions in the world,
perhaps as old if not older than the Hinduism. It has two collections
of Scriptures – the Dasatir and the Zand Avasta, which may be called
respectively the Old and the New Testaments of the Parsi religion. In
Dasatir, No.14, which is associated with the name of Sasanll, there is
not only a corroboration of the Doctrines and the teachings of Islam,
but a clear prophecy as to the Advent of the prophet Muhammad
(pbuh). The Prophecy is made in the clearest terms, and is preceded
by a vision of a state of extreme disorder and demoralization in
Persia. It runs thus: Read more of this post

The name “AHMAD” found in the Bible

By Admin.

There are prophecies about the coming of Propet Muhammad (pbuh) inside the Bible. But one clear evidence is Isaiah 42:1-4 where you can find the word “AHMED /AHMAD” which is translated as “whom I uphold”.


“Behold! My Servant, whom I uphold; My Elect One, in whom My soul delights! I have put My Spirit upon Him; He will bring forth justice to the Gentiles. 2 He shall not cry out, nor raise His voice, nor cause His voice to be heard in the street. 3 A bruised reed shall He not break, and smoking flax shall He not quench. In truth He shall bring forth justice. 4 He shall not fail nor be discouraged, till He has established justice in the earth; and the islands shall wait for His law.”

— Isaiah 42:1-4
In Hebrew, WHOM I UPHOLD is:

(Etmokh) אחמד 

Now go to “Google Translate” This is what you’ll find:

The Word Allah In The Arabic Bible

Abu Imân cAbd ar-Rahmân Robert Squires

Just a few examples for those who are still in doubt . . .

The images below, with the exception of the first image, were taken directly from The Holy Bible in Arabic. Referred to in Arabic as al-Kitâb al-Muqadis (i.e. ,The Holy Book), this is the scripture which is used by Arabic-speaking Christians (of which there are still about 15 to 20 million in the Middle East). So that those unfamiliar with Arabic script have something to compare these images with, the first image below is a verse from the Qur’ân – which is the Muslim scripture. In the images, the Arabic word Allah is underlined in red so that it can be easily identified. Upon comparing the images, one should be able to clearly see that the word Allah appears in both the Qur’ânic and Arabic Bible images. Indeed, the word Allah appears throughout Arabic translations of the Bible, since it is simply the Arabic name for Almighty God. Insha’llah, the examples below will help quell the doubts of those who have been duped into believing that Muslims worship a different god – either by the hostile media or by Christian missionary propaganda. We hope that this serves as enough documentation for those who still have doubts about this. We could think of no other way to prove this point, except to encourage everyone to do further critical and open-minded research on their own. Please, don’t forget to compare the images . . .

Idol Worship, the Unforgivable Sin

My experience debating Non Muslims, they will attack you by saying ALLAH has three daughters el-Lat, el-Uzza, and Manat. They also claim that we Muslims worshiping BLACK BOX (Ka’bah). So they accuse us practicing what PAGANS do.

This article below we can use as a COUNTER ATTACK with a good reference. I put the link to the numbers of verses. Jazakallah Khair for my brothers in Masjid Tucson.


What is the meaning of idol worship?

A simple definition of idol worship is to believe that anything beside God can help us, or to hold something as more important to us than God. Thus if we hold our property (for example) as more important than God, or give our jobs more time and attention than God—we are committing idol worship.

Unfortunately, the majority of people who believe in God commit this gross offense without even realizing it. If you ask them, “Who is your god?“, they will be outraged to hear this question. “What do you mean, `Who is your god?’ they will ask, `My god is the Creator of the heavens and the earth.’ ” And most of these people will be shocked to find out that their proclamation that their god is the Creator of the heavens and the earth is no more than lip service, and that they are in fact destined for Hell (12:106). Idol worship is a gross injustice, the violation of the first commandment in all the scriptures of God, and is an unforgivable sin if maintained until death.

[31:13] Recall that Luqmaan said to his son, as he enlightened him, “O my son, do not set up any idols beside GOD; idolatry is a gross injustice.”* Read more of this post

Trump Gets It Right: Islam Isn’t The Problem

I found this article telling a very fair perspective about terrorism.

By 


On Sunday, Donald Trump gave a speech written by a non-crazy person and managed to stay on topic. He almost sounded like a liberal so don’t expect it to last:

The relatively even keel stayed on target as the president read carefully from his teleprompter and avoided off-the-cuff remarks that got him into trouble in the past.”

This is not a battle between different faiths, different sects, or different civilizations,” Trump said. “This is a battle between barbaric criminals who seek to obliterate human life, and decent people of all religions who seek to protect it,” Trump said. “This is a battle between good and evil.”

The shocking part here is that he’s right; we are not at war with Islam no matter how badly some conservatives want that to be true. Islam is no more violent than Christianity or Judaism and until we recognize that, we will never deal with the root cause of “Islamic terrorism;” the barbaric cultures that warp it into a death cult.

It’s really easy to blame Islam because we’re a nation that overwhelming practices Christianity. It lets us feel smug and superior and there’s not a small amount of racism involved as well (and Americans excel at racism). This is why we talk about “profiling” terrorists, meaning people of Middle Eastern descent, while ignoring that several well-known Muslim terrorists were very much not Arabic. Two of the most wanted female terrorists in the world are white and British. But when you take Muslims out of violent cultures that practice stoning women to death, beheading witches, and genital mutilation and place them in advanced cultures like Germany, Canada and the United States, magically, most of that behavior vanishes. I’ve made this argument before and have yet to hear a rational explanation of why the culture is not the determining factor in this miraculous transformation. Read more of this post

Murder in the Bible

I put this article for me to use it in time debating the Christians who claim Islam is the most violent religion.


The act of murder is rampant in the Bible.  In much of the Bible, especially the Old Testament, there are laws that command that people be killed for absurd reasons such as working on the Sabbath, being gay, cursing your parents, or not being a virgin on your wedding night.  In addition to these crazy and immoral laws, there are plenty of examples of God’s irrationality by his direct killing of many people for reasons that defy any rational explanation such as killing children who make fun of bald people, and the killing of a man who tried to keep the ark of God from falling during transport.  There are also countless examples of mass murders commanded by God, including the murder of women, infants, and children.

The following passages are a very small percentage of the total passages approving of murder in the Bible.  They are divided here into three parts: 1) Capital Punishment Crimes, 2) God’s Murders for Stupid Reasons, 3) Murdering Children, and 4) Miscellaneous Murders.  This list is long, but it barely scratches the surface of all the murders approved of in the Bible.

1) Capital Punishment Crimes:

Kill People Who Don’t Listen to Priests

Anyone arrogant enough to reject the verdict of the judge or of the priest who represents the LORD your God must be put to death.  Such evil must be purged from Israel. (Deuteronomy 17:12 NLT)

Kill Witches

You should not let a sorceress live. (Exodus 22:17 NAB) Read more of this post
