U’mra and Haj: the invented pilgrimage1
The violent and ridiculous Arab religion masquerading as Islam today has deceived people into paying homage to a stone building in Mecca. They have manipulated two words in the Reading to create a ritual that is erroneously touted as an article of faith in Islam. The words Haj and U’mra were distorted to become the annual pilgrimage and the lesser pilgrimage2, respectively. These rituals were not ordained. They are totally contrary to the teachings of the Last Prophet whose duty was to deliver the message of the Reading only.3
1 I was startled to discover about this subject. It didn’t take me long to know the truth. I assembled all the words on Haj and ‘amr in the Quran, and finally discovered the serious distortions about these two words.
2 The author had performed both these rites and could not forgive himself for his own ignorance. He could have used the money to help the poor and needy.
3 As people from ‘Muslim’ backgrounds will know, there is a huge body of extra-Qur’anic literature that supports the non-Qur’anic concepts of pilgrimage. The assertion here is that this extra-Qur’anic literature contradicts rather than supports the initial Qur’anic premises.
