Allah is a moon idol - Recent Articles

Al Lah does not mean God – it is a celestial cult reference

Bookmark and Share

Allah or Al Lah (The One, The Deity, The Lord); does not mean ‘God’ in the Christian-Judeo sense.  Robert Spencer wrote on this obvious fact in PJ Media.  The foremost scholar on Islam (Submission), makes some very good points – mostly theological – on the differences between Christianity and the Meccan cult.  However, Spencer believes (as written in the comments section in his article) that Al Lah is Arabic for ‘God’.  Al Lah comes from the Babylonian word for moon-worship or Sin and the real meaning of ‘Al Lah’, (a concept which long predated Muhammad’s cult of violence and terror) is not ‘God’.  Al-Lah really means ‘The Lord Deity’, or ‘Chief Deity’, or ‘First amongst all Deities’, not God as a Christian or Jew would understand that word. 

The word ‘Sin’ in Western languages is derived from the brutality, licentiousness, pagan worship, and human-sacrificing horrors of the Baal cults of which Muhammadism or Islam is one variant.  These moon worshipping cults did not esteem the human, the child, monogamy, morality, nor did they understand boundaries and individual rights.  There were barbaric paganisms who had no problems with sexual hedonism, profligate living, child-sacrifices and constant bloody warfare.  Sodom and Gomorra were examples of such ‘sin’.

Not consigning the ‘Lord’ or ‘Chief Deity’ of Mecca into historical context just enables Moslems to redefine ‘Al Lah’ to be whatever they propose including ‘God’, and even the ‘same God as that worshipped by Christians’.  This lends credence to the propaganda that Islam is a ‘religion’ with only a different emphasis on doctrinal theology separating it from Judaism and Christianity.  If viewed through the lens of history and archaeology this claim or belief is absurd. 

History and archaeology have confirmed the following:

·        Near Eastern cults including those in Mecca, worshipped celestial objects, the most important being the Moon or Sun.  Much of this comes from the Sumerian-Babylonian empires(s), which dominated the Near East including Arabia, for millennia.  In the Old Testament Canaanites, Hittites, Philistines and most tribes were Moon worshippers, with Baal the Moon God being the venerated deity, usually expressed in the image of a Golden Calf (the story of Moses at Sinai and the tribes of Israel rejecting God for Baal and building the image of a golden calf, whilst engaged in hedonistic sex, drinking and dancing is an example).

 ·        Baal or for Meccans, ‘Al Lah’ worship emanating from the Tigris-Euphrates basin dominated Arabia including Mecca, for millennia.

 ·        Baal or Al-Lah in Mecca referenced the main deity of the Meccan celestial cult, which included the 3 chief ‘female goddesses’ (sometimes called daughters of Baal), which were also worshipped in various forms across the Near East: the Sun, Venus (Uzza in Mecca), and Nemesis or the consort of Baal (called Manat in Mecca).

 ·        Meccans used a lunar calendar and this was kept sacred by Muhammad’s cult.  Greek and Romans used a solar based calendar as did Jews and Christians.

 ·        Rituals pre-dating Muhammad were kept sacred by the cult of Submission, many of these revolved around moon-worship, which is why most Moslem states still use the crescent moon as their chief symbol (as did Moslem armies on Jihad during the Middle Ages).

 ·        In ancient Syria, Canaan and Arabia, the crescent moon was worshipped as the most important ‘Deity’, denoting seasonal changes, appropriate for a nomadic, semi-agriculture society. 

 ·        The Moslem Hajj or pilgrimage is based on the lunar calendar.

 ·        Muhammad’s family were the caretakers of Hubaal or the Moon Deity’s shrine.  Hubaal or Baal was the chief Al-Lah or main deity of Mecca.  In 630 AD after invading Mecca, Muhammad outlawed the worship of Allat, Uzza and Manat, and destroyed all idols in the Kabaa shrine except that of Hubaal.

The Kabaa shrine itself was a crude structure dedicated to celestial worship.  The main idol was Hubaal resplendent archaeology tells us, in red-carnate stone, long pre-dating Muhammad.  This Hubaal was called ‘Al Lah’ and Muhammad pronounced him the ‘greatest of all Gods’ or Allahu Akhbar the Moslem war-cry.  Evidence gathered from both North and South Arabia demonstrate that Moon-god worship was clearly a central feature in Arabian life even in Muhammad's day and was still the dominant cult. According to numerous inscriptions, while the name of the Moon-god was Sin, his title was al-ilah, i.e. 'the deity', or 'the Lord', meaning that he was the chief or high god among the gods.

The evidence that Muhammadism’s antecedents are celestial and moon-cult in nature is overwhelming.  Baal cults were the anti-thesis of Judeo-Christian belief. 

In fact, Hebraic thought rose in direct opposition to the pagan savagery of the Baal cults.  Most PC Atheists and Marxists descry the ‘violence’ of the Old Testament without putting the Bronze Age into perspective.  If the Hebrews did not fight the pagan Baal worshippers monotheism never would have arose, the truth of the Bible and of Christ never would have been witnessed and the savagery which help back civilisation in many areas of development would have gleefully rolled on. 

It is clear that ‘Al Lah’ has nothing in common with the Christian idea of God, with history, archaeology, and Arabic sources providing overwhelming evidence that Al Lah veneration is moon and celestial worship, directly linked to Babylonian-Sumerian cults.  Indeed the very word ‘Sin’ comes from the depiction of the immorality and atavistic nature of cults such as Baal or its middle-age reincarnation called Muhammadism.

Muhammad's pagan Allah

Just which Allah was the right Allah?

Bookmark and Share

It must have been a hard choice for history's greatest ever man [sorry not Obama but Muhammad]. There were so many potential 'Allahs' or the 'one' for Muhammad to venerate. The Al-Lah moon deity has many attributes and 99 names in the Koran of course [see Sura 59:22-24]. Should this Al-Lah thing be referencing the Babylonian moon deity Hub'Al or his three daughters, venerated for some 1500 years in Mecca by the time of the 'great man' Muhammad? Or maybe Allat the Sun goddess is the 'ilah' or the one ? Or perhaps the El-Lah is one of the other 358 idols in the Kabaa ? As with many things in life Muhammad stuck to what he knew. The choice was reasonably straightforward. Since his family venerated Hub'Al as the 'ilah' or one main divinity, the Allah or 'only one' would replace Hub'Al as the chief divine will-power in the universe, one that governs all human events and all the causes and effects of the natural and human worlds. Allah uber alles.


But it was not a uni-directional choice. This not-so-new Allah or Hub'Allah decided that Muhammad was the most important human in history [until the age of Obama]. Pagan Arabs had prostrated themselves in humiliation and engaged in bizarre rituals – which are still performed by Moslems today – to the great Hub'Al literally for millennia. But in around 610 AD the Allah or Hub'Allah decided that he loved Muhammad the most. The bi-directional relationship between Muhammad and Hub'Allah was thus born.


Why the sudden change for Allah or Hub'Al, and the redirection of his or its 'love' from the pagan Arab mass to one man? Sahih Bukhari, in his aHadiths provides one passage describing the Arab devotion to the Allah or 'the one'.


Bukhari- Volume 2, Book 26, Number 725
Narrated Muhammad bin Jubair bin Mut'im: 
My father said, "(Before Islam) I was looking for my camel." The same narration is told by a different sub-narrator. Jubair bin Mut'im said, "My camel was lost and I went out in search of it on the day of 'Arafat, and I saw the Prophet standing in 'Arafat. I said to myself:
By Allah he is from the Hums (literally: strictly religious, Quraish were called so, as they used to say, 'We are the people of Allah we shall not go out of the sanctuary). What has brought him here?" 


The above informs us that the Quraysh were devoted to the Allah long before Muhammad appropriated the 'one' and linked it with himself. Muhammad started preaching against his own tribe, when he received visions that the Al-Lah thing loved him the most. In Muhammad's theology Hub'Allah loved him and only him! The Quraish were not pious or strict enough in their groveling to the moon deity. There was too much laxity, good humor, sex and not enough mindless ritualization and submitted, irrational slavishness. This apparently had made the El-Lah thing very angry. He chose Muhammad to straighten things out. This occurred circa 610 AD. Now magically and quite suddenly, the millennia-long venerated Allah rejected the Meccans. The moon idol became romantically and psychologically obsessed only with Muhammad. Truly a bizarre tale.


The Meccans became angry at Muhammad in his early 'ministry' for a variety of reasons. He transgressed the social code and ethos of the existing cults. He harangued the Meccans as unworthy. He declaimed that he was a prophet. His sermonizing was having a negative impact on trade and pilgrimmage to the city state. He ridiculed pantheism. In its place he proposed that the Allah was really the name and deity of all the idols. The Hub'Allah had apparently chosen Muhammad to change and associate the name of 'ilah' with all the idols, wrapping up 360 deities into one. This would certainly have confused a pantheistic people.


In fact quite strangely, Muhammad demanded that early Moslems memorize Allah's 99 names. How can Allah be monotheistic when the name refers to 99 instances and discrete objects ? In other words Allah's name was being changed at will – Muhammad's will – to fit the social mores and naming conventions of a pagan cult. Muhammad also claimed that whoever believed in these 99 names and could recite them would enter the Hub'Allah's promised paradise [see Sahih Bukhari, 8.75.419 and 3.50.894].


Allah is thus a pagan symbol and naming convention. It incorporates Hub'Al[lah] and other other pagan deities. Moslem and Arab historian Benjamin Walker writes:


Thus Wadd, a moon god was assimilated into and survived in al-Wadud, 'the Loving'; Munim, worshipped in north Arabia survives in al-Mani, 'the Withholder'; Salm, a deity of Tayma, in al-Salaam, 'the Peace'; Kaus or Kayis, regarded as the consort of Manat, is retained in al-Kawi, 'the Strong'; Aziz of north Arabia is preserved unchanged is al-Aziz, 'the Mighty'.The pre-Islamic designations of God, al-Rahman, 'the Merciful', and ar-Rahim, 'the Compassionate', remain conspicuous in Islam [Walker, 2004, p. 43].”


The Koran confirms that this 'mighty and often merciful' Al-Lah figure is actually a polytheistic deity. 


And your Allah is One Allah: There is no god but He, Most Gracious, Most Merciful.” [002.163]


“It is
He Who is Allah in heaven and Allah on earth; and He is full of Wisdom and Knowledge.” [043.084]


It is clear that in the beginning of his ministry and political project, that Muhammad was quite unsure as to who should be his 'Allah' or 'the one' [Obama would be born much later sadly]. Would the ilah thing be ar-Rahman, ar-Rahim, Allat, Uzza, Wadd, Hubal, Aziz-or any other numerous deities that the Meccan Pagans used to worship. Besides Hubal, Allah, Allat, Uzza, and Manat, each tribe in Arabia, had their own favourite idol or deity. So which Allah was the right Allah?


Muhammad solved this conundrum as one would expect he would. He chose his family deity Hub'Al, and used the Arabic word for 'the one' or ilah to describe its ascendancy over all idols. This is why the Koran states in many places that 'your Allah is the One Allah'. Hub'Al, long the protector of Mecca simply disappears from the record and Arab history. Allah replaces it and every other idol. In other words, whatever you are worshipping Mr. and Mrs. Pagan Arab, is actually my Allah. So keep your rites, your rituals, your pilgrimmage, your oblations, your prayers and just redirect them to Mecca, my hometown, and enrich me with money, power and totalitarian control. So spake Muhammad. And the Arabs agreed.

 

Al-Lah is not 'God' but simply a reference for pre-modern pagan Arab moon idol worship.

It is vital to understand that Islam has nothing in common with the JC tradition.

But Islam also draws from other pagan traditions. For example, the tale of Mohammed's night journey into heaven parallels the Zoroastrian story of Arta Viraf. Zoroastrianism also inspired the Islamic belief that dark-eyed virgins await every man who enters heaven. And the Islamic ritual of praying five times a day? That, historians say, originates with the Sabeans, Syrian pagans who practiced an ecumenical mixture of Babylonian and Hellenic religion.

No surprise, then, that some scholars refer to Islam as monotheistic heathenism.”

Islam is a pagan cult. It is hard to understand why a Western apologist, including the usual array of self-loathing Jews, Christians, Marxists and Greenists; persist in calling a Muhammandan cult centered in Mecca, which venerates rocks, stones, devils, Hub'Al [or ilah, the one], misogyny, racism and which promotes a fantasy world in the guise of dialectical supremacism, a religion. What do they get from branding a cult as a religion? Dinner party invites? New t-shirts? Moral superiority? Cloudy irrationality and obtuse ignorance is neither progressive nor enlightened. It is just ignorance and in the case of Islam a most dangerous variety of ignorance. Islam merges church and state into a totalitarian political theology. It is the most violent and irrational of pagan theologies.



An oft-cited claim by clever people and Moslems is that the moon deity Allah or the 'one' which references Hubal of course, and which is an idol of worship derived from Assyro-Babylonian cults which migrated via Syria into Mecca, is 'God'. I suppose any object can therefore be the same as a Christian 'god' including my large Ash tree. Muhammad the illiterate founder of the cult of submission, tries mightily to equate the moon deity referred to as the 'one' [a precursor to the label for Obama], with the god of Abraham. Historians say that Mohammed, who as a traveling trader was exposed to Judaism and Christianity during his visits to different places in Syria and Israel, tried to mimic those monotheistic faiths by taking Allah, the main deity within the Arabian pantheon, and making it the only god. Indeed, the basic confession of Islam is not that "Allah is Great" but that "Allah is Greater". Greater than all the other idols. This is what the phrase means.



This tendentious and false conflation, no matter how often it is repeated does not make it valid or real. Allah has nothing in common in origins, in history, in development or in style of veneration, with the Judeo-Christian ideal of god. The legion of mistakes, misquotes, misanthropy and overt violent supremacism reveal both the Koran and the Islamic cult to be little more than pre-modern proto-neolithic theologies using Judaism as a basis for both confirmation and credibility. Stating that my Ash tree is the same as the Christian god does not make it valid. Absurdity is still absurd. Lies paraded as truths are still lies.

In fact we can state this:



The credibility of Islam as a religion stands or falls on its core claim of historical continuity with Judaism and ChristianityIf we divorce the Moslem cult from the other 2 Levantine Monotheism's Islam fails and collapses. This is why Moslems do not allow archeology, inquiry into the historical Koran or the historical Muhammad and why they disavow all analysis of their cult. Moslems intuitively know that Islam has nothing in common with the JC tradition.



This Moslem object of irrational worship and ritualization is a pre-Islamic pagan moon-god. Indeed, it is an established archaeological fact that worship of the moon-god was the main religion of the ancient Middle East. Any cursory study of this area of the world makes this clear. Since 5000 BC in all centers of Near Eastern development moon worship was the chief form of idol veneration. Arabia was no different in this regard.



In the last 200 hundred years prominent archaeologists have discovered throughout the Arabian peninsula thousands of inscriptions which prove beyond any doubt that the dominant religion of Arabia during Mohammed's day was the cult of the moon-god. Hub'Al[lah] was the chief god of Mecca, responsible for instance in repelling the Ethiopian invasion of 571 AD [the year of Muhammad's birth perhaps, though the dates for that do range from 570 to 580 AD].



For many generations before Mohammed was born – his full name was Muhammad ibn Abdullah or Muhammad the son of the slave of the 'one' or Hubal -- the Arabs worshipped some 360 pagan gods housed at the stone temple in Mecca called the Kabah. According to archaeologists, the chief deity of Mecca was the moon-god called Hubal or 'the one' [Al-Lah, El-Lah, i-Lah]. Independent historians have long confirmed that the pre-Islamic Arabs worshipped the moon-god by bowing in prayer toward Mecca several times a day. They would also make a pilgrimage to Mecca, run around the crude stone Kabah seven times and throw stones at the devil and the 'sunset' demon. They also fasted and were at 'peace' for one month, giving each other a respite from the interminable raiding, cattle thieving and caravan destruction which were the full time jobs of most Arabs. This period of Ramadan or quiet, would begin with the appearance of the crescent moon and would end when the crescent moon reappeared some 4 weeks later on. This Arab cult of ritualization existed centuries before the 'great man' Muhammad was born.



Today of course these same rites are still in existence within Islam. So much for progress. The pagan cult of modern Islam can find its antecedents in Assyro-Babylonian worship [Ba'al, Hub'al]; in Bedouin rites and practices [all of Islam's rituals]; and in a pre-modern lust for totalitarian control of society [the merger of church and state]; and the creation of a transcendent unknowable thing named El-Lah, which governs all will, all choices and which enacts pre-destination negating both human reason and human individuality. None of this is modern, rational, or remotely connected to Judeo-Christian development, which has mutated over the centuries to be the cultural basis for the creation of the modern world, a fact which cannot be denied.
