What ALLAH says about IDOL WORSHIP

When you are active in the Religion Debate Forum, you will read “ALLAH IS SATAN” or “ALLAH IS PAGAN GOD”. Part of them claims Allah is one of the idols. This reference I did to copy and paste and show them what Allah says about Idol Worship.

HADITH AND THE BIOGRAPHY OF PROPHET MUHAMMAD PBUH (SEERAH)

Muslim (832) narrated from ‘Urwah ibn ‘Abasah that he said to the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him): “With what were you sent?” He said, “I was sent to uphold the ties of kinship,TO BREAK THE IDOLS, and so that Allaah would be worshipped alone with no partner or associate.”

Al-Haafiz Ibn Hajar said:

This hadeeth indicates that it is prescribed to remove things that may tempt or confuse the people, whether they are buildings, people, animals or inanimate objects.

1 – The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) sent Khaalid ibn al-Waleed (may Allaah be pleased with him) on a CAMPAIGN TO DESTROY AL-‘UZZA.

2 – and he sent Sa’d ibn Zayd al-Ashhali (may Allaah be pleased with him) on a campaign TO DESTROY MANAAT.

3 – And he sent ‘Amr ibn al-‘Aas (may Allaah be pleased with him) on a CAMPAIGN TO DESTROY ANOTHER BIG IDOL CALLED SUWAA’. All of that happened after the Conquest of Makkah.

4 – Jarir all the way to Yemen TO DESTROY A HOUSE IN WHICH IDOLS WERE WORSHIPPED. ( as related in the Hadith by Bukhari (Volume 5: Book 59, Number 643) – he blessed Jarir and his army five times after they had done the job – which clearly indicates the nobility of this action.

After defeat by Muhammad’s forces at the Battle of UhudAbu Sufyan ibn Harb, leader of the Quraysh army, is said to have called on Hubal for support to gain victory in their next battle, saying “Show your superiority, Hubal”.[6] When Muhammad conquered Mecca in 630, HE REMOVED AND HAD DESTROYED THE STATUE OF HUBAL, ALONG WITH THE OTHER 360 IMAGES AT THE KAABA., and dedicated the structure to Allah.[7]

A large number of idol-temples were situated around Makkah. They were the objects of respect for many tribes. In order to uproot idol-worship from the region of Makkah the PROPHET SENT BATTALIONS OF SOLDIERS TO DIFFERENT DIRECTIONS TO DESTROY THE IDOL-TEMPLES SITUATED THERE. It was also announced in Makkah itself that whoever happened to have an idol in his house should break it immediately

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
