Stone-worshippers

The religion of pagan Arabs centres largely on traditions relating to the square stone idol in Mecca mistakenly called the Ka’aba and its environs. The religionists make it mandatory for the faithful to worship it and this is why, to this day, Muslims around the world bow and prostrate in the direction of this particular rock structure wherever they may be.

The religionists say that the stone house in Mecca is God’s house. They call the rock structure in Mecca the baytul-lah or God’s house. The term God’s house or baytul-lah is not found in the Reading. If this concept is so central to Muslims’ belief, how is it that it escapes mention in the Reading? It must be another Arab fabrication.

From another perspective, were this supposition true, it would stand to reason that God, the Lord of the Universe lives in this tiny 627-square foot hollow rock cube in Mecca. Simply because baytul-lah is presented as an endemic Arabic term nobody has bothered to check the true meaning of the word. Muslims the world over do not question what they are saying when they utter the word baytul-lah because the word has been proclaimed ‘divine‘ and thus its significance cannot be questioned. To question this would invoke accusations of heresy.

Credit has to be given to the ‘Arabs’ for perpetuating myths of this magnitude. For non-Arab Muslims terms like this will always be ‘divine’ since they are uttered in combination with words like Allah. They will worship anything appended with that name. They will bow and prostrate to a stone idol for the sake of the word Allah.

I visited the rock structure many years ago and felt humiliated after bowing and prostrating to it. Upon returning to my country, I asked for forgiveness from the Lord of the Universe and pledged to Him that I would never step foot on that soil again. It is inconceivable how millions of intelligent men and women including head of states and professionals consistently defy their common sense and serve a rock structure built by the Arabs. Although this point will be decried as heretical, it is nevertheless true: Mecca and Medina are the two largest idol-worshipping cities in the world.

There are Muslims who say: since God owns the heavens and the earth, there is nothing wrong with saying there is a house of God. However, it is a patent madness (invested with simple human pride) to assume that the Creator of the Universe owns a special house on the desert sand representing His glory. Yet the same foolish Muslims accuse others of being pagans by virtue of their idolatry. Do they not do the same when they worship a rock cube?

All this smacks of the Devil’s touch. Consider the statement in the Reading portraying the Devil as the foremost expert in mind control. The Reading says that, God will assign the devil as companion to those who neglect His message and then the devil deludes them into thinking that they are guided:

Those who neglect the message of God most gracious, we appoint the devil1 to be their constant companion. Then the Devil will keep them away from the path and make them think that they are guided. (43:36-37)

All these linguistic and contextual ambiguities have successfully concealed the true message of the Reading. The Holy Book has been reduced to a choir book used solely for chanting and singing. To this day, many blindly follow the ‘recipes’ set out in these Muslim ‘precepts’ contained in a language foreign to them and perpetuate the same myths themselves. There are similar instances in many religions, but none quite so insidious and widespread. Many of these misconceptions are easily discovered with a little care and logic. It seems that common sense is hardly a common commodity.


1 ‘Devil’ in not a form of creature but a person’s negative character expressed through their words, thoughts and deeds. Human as devil 6:112 & 114:6.

  1. Selam

    Can anyone intepret 9:28 for me. Thank you.

    Peace

  2. Salaam to you Kemal,

    Why don’t you tell us what you understand from 9:28 – and what cross references you applied from the Quran to arrive at such understanding?

  3. As you read the passage of Quran Surah 9:26-30, you can understand the thoughts of the writer. He implied that Jews and Christians are idolaters and do not permit these people to come to Kaaba after this year – the date is likely between 630CE when he conquered Mecca and before he died in 632CE. It seems the cube stone worshippers have to pay certain fee to enter the Kaaba at that time. What Surah 9:28 means is that stop the idolaters or non-muslims from entering Kaaba and the loss of income from this practice will be rewarded by Allah if he will.

    9:26
    Pickthal
    Then Allah sent His peace of reassurance down upon His messenger and upon the believers, and sent down hosts ye could not see, and punished those who disbelieved. Such is the reward of disbelievers.

    9:27
    Pickthal
    Then afterward Allah will relent toward whom He will; for Allah is Forgiving, Merciful.

    9:28
    Pickthal
    O ye who believe! The idolaters only are unclean. So let them not come near the Inviolable Place of Worship after this their year. If ye fear poverty (from the loss of their merchandise) Allah shall preserve you of His bounty if He will. Lo! Allah is Knower, Wise.

    9:29
    Pickthal
    Fight against such of those who have been given the Scripture as believe not in Allah nor the Last Day, and forbid not that which Allah hath forbidden by His messenger, and follow not the Religion of Truth, until they pay the tribute readily, being brought low.

    9:30
    Pickthal
    And the Jews say: Ezra is the son of Allah, and the Christians say: The Messiah is the son of Allah. That is their saying with their mouths. They imitate the saying of those who disbelieved of old. Allah (Himself) fighteth against them. How perverse are they!

  4. Peace be upon you Trurthseeker, Are you a mind reader or among those who like to spread “fitnah” about others?

  5. The Almighty God was not a lonely God even before the creation of angels, the universe, the earth with all kinds of living creatures.

    After the creation, the Almighty God is also not just like playing solitaire game; or become lonely and bored because of no one able to compete with.
