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”
- 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.”
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
