This week the Muslims around the world have been celebrating their second most holy feast, Eid Al Adha. This is a celebration at the end of the Hajj. This past week we had from 3 to 5 million Muslims, who converged on the Kaaba at Mecca for their obligation as Muslims to visit the Kaaba at least once in their lives. The Hajj is one of the 5 pillars of Islam. Many Muslim try to do the Hajj near the end of their lives because it helps absolve their sins.
For Eid Al Adha, they will sacrifice a sheep, and in Bangladesh, because of the number of seep sacrificed, and the heavy rains, it looked like a river of blood flowing through the Capital City.
There are a lot of Islamic practices that were borrowed from the pagans. Muhammad borrowed things from many different religions and put them together to form his religion.
The pagans of Mecca, before Muhammad created Islam, worshiped 360 deities. Muhammad’s tribe worshiped a god called Allah, the moon god. This god had a wife and 2 daughters. These daughters (deities) are found in the Qur’an, and the verses where they are found are called the “satanic verses.” After Muhammad put the revelation concerning these in the Qur’an, his followers questioned them because he had said there was only one god. Muhammad said that he had been tricked by Satan to put these verses in the Qur’an.
For the Hajj, they will walk around the Kaaba, which they believe Abraham and his sons built. They call it the “womb of he world.” They believe that Adam descended on the moon rock, which is a black rock, a meteorite, which is part of the Kaaba, and this is the birthplace of humanity.
Before Muhammad, the pagans would walk around the Kaaba naked, at least Muhammad put cloths on them. Today they wear white clothing, and as the millions walk around the Kaaba, they hope they will be able to touch or kiss the black rock. They believe that their sins will be absolved if they do this.
After their tour around the Kaaba, they go out into the wilderness and spend an evening wandering around in the mountains. After a night of reflection, they will pick up 21 rocks and come back into Mecca and cast these rocks at the Devil. Last year more than 300 people were crushed and killed as they were coming back into the city.
They then drink water from the ZomZom well and then comes the Eid Al Adha. This is what is happening right now.
When Abraham took his son to sacrifice as a test of his faith, Islam teaches it was not Isaac, it was Ishmael. Islam teaches that Ishmael is the chosen son, he is the one with the blessing, and that the Jews have distorted the text and written in the name Isaac. Muslims believe they are the rightful owners of the land. This is central in the fight between the Jews and the Arabs. Chapter 17 in Genesis makes it very clear that the promised land belongs to the Jews.
I want to look at another story that has been in the news. Remember the Muslim who attacked the nightclub in Florida? He worshiped at the mosque called the Fort Pierce Islamic Center. Someone set this mosque on fire. They captured the suspect within 24 hours. It seems to be a retaliation for the shooting in the nightclub. Apparently he has been posting anti-Muslim things on his webpage.
I understand the anger toward this mosque. It has been the spiritual home of at least 2 terrorists.One of them shot the people in the nightclub. He did this because Islam demands the death penalty for homosexuality and nonbelievers. They didn’t need to be homosexuals to be among those who should be killed, all that was necessary was that they were not Muslims.
Twenty-two year-old Palestinian-American Moner Mohammad Abu-Salha, aka Abu Hurayra al-Amrik also worshiped at this mosque. He was the first American to have blown himself up as a suicide bomber.
There is little doubt that this mosque is preaching the principles Muhammad taught. It is not teaching the soft moderate reformed doctrine which everyone wants Islam to be.
We always come back to the fact that the Qur’an teaches that Muhammad is the great example. More than 90 times the Qur’an teaches that Muslims are to follow Muhammad’s example, he is the perfect man. If Muhammad did it, all good Muslims should do it. Islam has a real problem because those who are engaged in terrorist activity are following the example of the Prophet of Islam. The things they are doing are commanded by their scriptures.
You will find Christians that are militant. A few Christians have taken it upon themselves to blow up abortion clinics and the like. The difference is they cannot produce a text from the New Testament that tells them to do this kind of thing. These so-called Christians have no biblical basis for what they do. When you look at Islam, this is exactly what their scriptures tell them to do.
This violent nature of Islam is not only supported by their scriptures, it is also supported by the best Islamic scholars. You can search this site to find documentation proving this fact. We really don’t have to look very hard to find the truth, it is out there for all who will seek after it.
