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.
