Is Ka’ba an Idol?

26 May

Is Ka’ba an idol?

When I say Idol worshipping is wrong, people tend to defend themselves saying, “Oh yeah! Even you people worship an idol?”
“Whaat? What are you talking about? We are the ones who say NO IDOL WORSHIPPING!”

“Hmm..then what’s that black big idol you prostate to?”
            “Why do you want to pray in a fixed direction?”

“Wow! what a legitimate question :)”
“You have the right to ask such questions and I appreciate them too!”
“Ask more questions so that you get more clarifications!”

This is the most common, popular, famous, blah blah blah whatever u say, question they ask.

Yusha Evens (ex-Christian) once said that when he realized the faults in Christianity, he started reading about other religions. He went to a library, and got a book named ‘All about Islaam’ (Pretty much attractive isn’t it?). He started reading n reading. You know what he read there? “Muslims are one who worship a black cubid in the middle of a desert!! (loooooooool :D:D:D:D). They kill the non-muslims wherever they find (erm..handsup i’m gonna shoot you hehe :D)”

He got scared and said “O my God! Thanks I didn’t see a Muslim yet” (Oh! poor boy :D)

This went along few days. And one fine day, he started chatting with his friend (I don’t know whether he was a close friend or a newbee). While chatting, that ‘friend’ asked him, “Do you know anything about Islaam?”.
  He said, “Oh Yeah! I KNOW EVERYTHING!!”. (??!!)

“Okey! What do you think about it?”
“They worship a black cube. They kill whomever they see.”

I guess that friend should have laughed till his heart because I did it when I heard this.
He asked, “What do you think about me?”
“Well, you are a nice person”.
“I am a Muslim.”
“WHAT?”
“I am a Muslim!”

He should have immediately realized that what he read in the book must be a manifest error, because he see his friend would never kill him. He started learning about Islam, from a ‘practicing’ Muslim and guess what HE IS A MUSLIM NOW! WORKING SERIOUSLY TO SPREAD THE MESSAGE TO OTHERS!

I know this is a bit off topic, but for those who wish to see his conversion story listen to this ‘How Bible brought me to Islam’:

I said all these things because, don’t judge Islam through some idiotic ill mannered books which try to cover the burning sun. Ask a Muslim directly or go to a masjid near your place to learn about it!

Okey lets get back to the actual question.

a) Is Ka’ba an idol??

         Lemme give you the difference between the ka’ba and an idol.

Ka’ba is a building. It stands upon a 25 cm (10 in) base, which projects outwards about 35 cm (14 in). It is approximately 13.1 m (43 ft) high, with sides measuring 11.03 m (36.2 ft) by 12.86 m (42.2 ft).

      Ka’ba is the first masjid build on the face of earth, to worship God.

“Indeed, the first House [of worship] established for mankind was that at (Becca) Makkah – blessed and a guidance for the worlds.” [AlQur’aan Chapter ‘The family of Imran’ 3:96]

People prayed inside the ka’ba. Are you ready to pray inside your idol? That’s impossible isn’t it?

Bilal (radhi allahu anhu) the mu’adhin (caller for prayer) of the Prophet’s time used to STAND ON THE TOP OF THE KA’BA, to call people for prayer.

I BET ANYONE CAN DO THE SAME TO YOUR IDOL???
YOU STAND ON IT’S TOP? YOU DARE PUT YOUR LEG ON IT?

We did, BECAUSE IT’S NOT OUR GOD!!!

b) What about the black stone, you kiss it?

        Okey, you say it’s an idol, just because we kiss it? Then I will quote the statement of Caliph Umar bin AlKhattaab (radhi allahu anhu), the one to whom Shaitaan feared.

Sahih Bukhari Volume 2, Book 26, Number 675:

Narrated Zaid bin Aslam from his father who said:

“Umar bin Al-Khattab addressed the Corner (black stone) saying, ‘By Allah! I know that you are a stone and can neither benefit nor harm. Had I not seen the Prophet touching (and kissing) you, I would never have touched (and kissed) you.’ Then he kissed it and said, ‘There is no reason for us to do Ramal (in Tawaf) except that we wanted to show off before the pagans, and now Allah has destroyed them.‘ ‘Umar added, ‘(Nevertheless), the Prophet did that and we do not want to leave it (i.e. Ramal).’

You can get 3 solutions from this narration:

1) The Black Stone in itself doesn’t possess any power. It can’t benefit it can’t harm.
(I don’t think you believe your idol does not possess any power?)

2) They did that during the pagans time, to show-off that they too are powerful now. (You should read the entire history to know the atrocities of the pagans and how much they belittled their own people just because they said MY GOD IS ONE!)

3) We would never touch the stone except that Prophet (Peace be upon him) had done it.

Personally I am saying, when I go to Makkah I don’t touch the stone. It’s so crowd there.  AND IT’S NOTHING WRONG IF YOU DONT TOUCH IT AND KISS IT! YOU KISS IT, YOU DON’T KISS IT..IT’S ALL THE SAME!!

BECAUSE THE BLACK STONE IS NOT OUR GOD!!!

c) Why do you pray in a fixed direction?

         Since all your claims went futile, you are picking up on directions now?!

I don’t see how praying towards ka’ba becomes an idol for you?
NOTE: We pray TOWARDS Ka’ba and not TO ka’ba.

(I guess you will not say the same to your idol, because you clearly know YOU ARE PRAYING TO THAT IDOL).

Praying towards a fixed direction, in rows and rows is an excellent way of organizing us. Lots of people converted to Islaam, just after they saw the prayer of Muslims in person. DO YOU KNOW THAT?
They wonder what an excellent system of prayer is this!!! You all are equal in front of your Lord, no matter white or black, rich or poor!

(Remember: What you see here is the top of the 3rd floor. The 1st and 2nd floors inside the masjid have been already filled!! And you will see people praying in the road if you are blessed being there. I wish you will get to go there one day, as a believer submitted to Him alone)

Actually, first God ordered us to pray towards Masjidul Aqsa in Jerusalem, and then the direction order came to Ka’ba.
If we worshiped direction as a God, we wouldn’t be changing directions here n there. But we simply do it BECAUSE IT’S THE ORDER OF GOD!

Hey, even if there is no ka’ba WE WOULD STILL BE PRAYING TO OUR LORD in an uniform way.
ARE YOU READY TO WORSHIP Y(OUR) GOD, WITHOUT AN IDOL???

d) See this picture, isn’t it a ‘shiva lingam’? (A shiva lingam is an idol of one of the Gods of Hinduism)

Hahahahaha.. this is one of the most funniest thing I had ever came around. 😀 😀 😀 😀

Its not shiva lingam or any other idol, it’s called ‘Makaam AlIbraahim’ meaning the place of Prophet Abraham (Peace be upon him).

Look at the close picture of that.

I think I don’t need to explain anymore, this picture speaks for itself!

Just because you see something ovel shaped, THAT BECOMES YOUR GOD?

What can I say about your foolishness? Its a gold coated glass my dear.

I know you are biting your tongue!

ISLAAM IS THE RELIGION WHICH SAYS, STOP IDOLATRY AND COME TO WORSHIP OF ONE TRUE GOD!

Actually there were 360 idols inside ka’ba, BEFORE THE PRE-ISLAMIC PERIOD. Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him) destroyed all the idols and said, “WORSHIP BELONGS TO THE ONLY ONE GOD!!”

Till date, there is not even a single idol inside the entire city of Makkah and Madinah. BETTER LUCK NEXT TIME!

Next thinking –> Is God He or She or It?

Little About Me

25 Apr

 

I got a response from one of my friends..we used to have a little chit chat about Islam..bt this conversation is worth posting here..it may clarify certain facts about me and it may help others.

Give it a read!

“Great work 🙂
Big problem in this era of dot com is good amount of religious content is available on net but authenticating the same is real real test for the surfer. Most of the Islamic sites on internet are misleading.

One day I thought of reading biography of first Caliph Hz.Abu Bakr Siddiq(RZ) and with my search query I got beautiful pdf. I started reading and every thing mention there was absolutely correct and nothing was contradicting but when I reached middle of pdf there was some thing written about sect Khadiyaani. The author is praising the sect and its founder, I was shocked to see that and deleted that pdf.

Similarly for the newbies its is really difficult to learn Islam on internet, but the kind of work you are doing is really good and its our duty of promote those sites among Ummah.

What is your opinion on Abdul Wahab Najdi? As far as I know he is the real biddah(innovator) in Islam and most of his teachings are misleading to innocent muslims. I heard that guy is khawaraji and people who are following him are extremist.
Hadith of Prophet Mohammed(Peace be upon him) “Jews were divided into 72 sects and my Ummah will be divided into 73 sects and out of 73 sects only one sect will enter into Heaven”
So every follower of different sects raises this question which is that sect who are on correct path?

May Allah(SWT) by the grace of blessed Sandal of Prophet Muhammed(PUBH) guide us the true path Ameen.”

My Reply:

Wa alaikum assalam wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu,

      What u r saying is true.. many sites leads to misinterpretation of Islaam, mostly shiates.. and people start thinking grave worship is good too!! na’oodubillah we seek refuge in Allah..

 

      To be frank.. i don really knw who Abdul Wahab Najdi is…

if He was to be an inhabitant of Paradise..i would be questioned by Allah for my words..

If he was a deviant, i hv nothing to talk abt him.. We dont know.. Allah knows…so lemme refrain from saying anything in shaa allah..

 

      Yes.. the hadith u quoted is a well famous hadith..and everyone who quotes this says they are on that right path..lol allaahu musta’aan..

 

      If u ask me what I am going to say…

 

There r people who say.. take it only from qur’aan n sunnah… and there r people who say blindly follow an imaam..he is infallible..

 

       Bt not me..as Islam is the middle path.. i go in the middle path too.. I need Qur’an n sunnah as lungs.. and good righteous imaams as the nasal pathway for air to enter lungs..

 

     U see.. air can have impurities too.. what i take from imaams ‘may’ hv some __ too..bt once it reaches the lungs (qur’an n sunnah)..oxygen gets separated and the impurity goes out via the same path..

 

 

       Without the quran n sunnah u r doomed..without the imaams it will be hard for u to check everything bck to qur’aan n sunnah.. that nasal passage guides air direct to the lungs.. and lungs do the job of purifying..u gt my point?

 

To be fair..i dont hv that much knowledge to understand everything from qur’aan n sunnah.. we cant ignore the gr8 works of Imam Abu Hanifa, Malik, Shafi’i or Ahmad or any other imaam.. May Allah bless them all..

 

        Rather I wont say, follow one imam juz blindly.. thats where we do mistake..when a statement of imam goes clearly against the quran or sunnah.. Allah n His Messenger shld be ur priority… WHY DO YOU WANT TO BREATH COAL N SAY LUNGS WILL DO ITS JOB?

 

       And i wont start blaming that imaam, if he did a mistake..that may be due to many circumstances.

       Doing a mistake is not a mistake. But following that mistake after knowing it as a mistake is a mistake..lol (hope i am nt confusing u)

 

 Thats what we study in our syllabus..there were many circumstances which lead to difference of opinions between the imaams.. if we study their history we will know that if those imaams came to knw something goes against authentic sunnah.. immediately they would hv changed their view..THEN WHY NOT WE?

 

As I am studying fiqh..i can appreciate all the 4 imams .. if u knw..they were students within themselves.. Shafi’i learnt from student of Abu Hanifa , Ahmad learnt from Shafi’i..maa shaa allaah ta’aala..

 

      But now..people say I am a shaafi’i n i dont take anything from Hanafis.. I am Hambali n i dont care abt Malikis..

 

      We r all muslims in the first place.. thats y i don prefer giving me any title.. hanafi, maliki, shafi’i, hambali, wahhabi, salafi whatsoever.. i am a muslim n only a muslim.

Note: I am not saying giving a title next to our name is deviation..I am in no position to say that! For myself I juz don prefer it.

 

      I can agree with all knowledgeable imaams as long as i see their proofs in qur’aan n sunnah n as long as i dont see them in the deviated path..(khawarij, shia etc)..

         

        I dont say all of them except me r deviated a’oodubillaah…bcoz…i am only a bug..which strives n slowly crawls behind our beloved Prophet (sal allaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam).

 

       It is Allah who is free of All Mistakes..and it is He to whom we surrender..no help except His help n no protection except His protection..allahumma ameen.
