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?

Are You A ‘Diest’?

1 Apr

 

 

Are You A ‘Diest’?

          From all these things which we have seen before, can you realize that there is a God which created everything including the universe? You should be sure that nature is not God, love is not God but God is a separate entity. If not take 3 more days and think for yourself.

 

Still if you cannot believe that there is a God, don’t hesitate to explain your side in the comments section below.

 

Now we go to the next stage,

 

There is a God who created this world but thereafter He left the world. He has no control over it or to the lives of the people.

 

People who believe in this are called ‘Diests’.

 

Unfortunately most of us are diests. We believe in God but we say that we are free of God’s need.

 

“Yes there is a God but we don’t need Him” <–Most of us say this, right?

 

“He don’t need to tell me what the right way is, I will find it for myself” <–We are in this ugliest state.

 

My Dear Reader, if you are a Diest consider these points.

 

Point 1:

       No one will create something without a purpose. Even you will not create a thing without a purpose. NECESSITY IS THE MOTHER OF INVENTION… Isn’t it?

 

Even you a human will not do it, then how come the Creator of all these excellent excellent things around us, created them without a purpose?

 

How can you believe that YOU ARE A CREATION WITHOUT A PURPOSE?

 

You are just putting yourself down..

 

Think what ‘Your’ Lord says,

“And We did not create the heavens and earth, and all that is between them, in mere play.” [AlQur’aan 44:38]

 

“Does man think that he will be left uncontrolled, (without purpose)?” [AlQur’aan 75:36]

Think think think… How can we be created without a purpose?

 

Point 2:

   “Okey!!! God created me for some purpose but I don’t want Him!” <– Are you saying this?

 

Oh my little brain! It is not God who needs you. IT IS YOU WHO NEED HIM.

It is you who need Him to BREATHE not your GOD.

It is you who need Him to TWINKLE YOUR EYE not your GOD.

It is you who need Him to WALK, TALK, and SMILE not your GOD.

It is you who need Him to EAT, DRINK, and SLEEP not your GOD.

It is you who need Him in EVERY SECOND OF YOUR LIFE not your GOD!!!

  

Even if you say NO for all those questions, when there comes a time of necessity, when a lion is in front of you.. You will shout, “O GOD!! SAVE MEEE!!!!

  

Yes indeed IT IS TRUE,

“O mankind, you are those in need of Allah, while Allah is the Free of need, the Praiseworthy.” [AlQur’aan 35:15]

  

Point 3:

     We are in need of our Lord. But to ask our needs to our Lord there are certain ways.

“What certain ways?? He should grant my wishes in whatever manner I ask Him” <–Do you say this?

  

Look my reader!

There are certain manners, ways for each n every act in our life. We do expect it from our fellow beings, don’t we?

Even if your kid comes n asks u, “You crazy dad/mum! Why can’t you buy a pencil for me?” What u gonna tell her? Will u get the thing for her?

Nope! You are going to teach her to be polite and to be respectfull.

And this is the way, manner she is supposed to follow.

 

Afterall we human beings expect this, then what about our Lord, the AllPowefull and All Praise Worthy??

Think! You will get what I mean.

 

Your God will provide you even if you don’t ask Him. BUT THAT WILL NOT BE AN EVERLASTING PROVISION!!

There are certain ways to get that EVERLASTING PROVISION!

 

And this is a very complex point. People will say, “Only I can say what the correct way is and not the God”.

 

So we get two sub points here,

a. Ways which people created for themselves.

b. Ways which God created for us.

 

Point 3a:

Ways which people created for themselves:

        Unfortunately, 99.9% ways are created by people. Ways created by people for people. These ways will always have faults in them no matter how perfect we try to make them. We humans always err.

        If we look at the religious side, Buddha. Buddha was a man. Even he didn’t call himself as God. The things which he said were good things nothing wrong in them. But where the problem comes is Buddha was a human. He is not here anymore. He will not know if I disobey him.

   A X-Buddhist said, “I will say all the mantras of good behaviour then I will cover the statue of Buddha and start drinking wine!!”

   “Why because Buddha will never know what I am doing! I am good for the outer world.”

 

     Uhh.. THIS WILL BE RESULT OF FOLLOWING A MAN MADE WAY!

 

Point 3b:

Ways which God created for us:

         Again this is also a very critical point. There is no doubt in saying that we should follow the ways which God wanted us to follow but what is that way?

We have numerous ways claiming that it is the Godly way.

 

No worries, if you do some research you will find that 99% ways have the works of men init.

May be that way will be revived, renewed, reviewed my men… Whatever it is… even if any microscopic change is done to it… IT IS NOT A GODLY WAY ANYMORE!!

 

Lets go deeper in the future posts, if God so wills it.

 

What you have to know from this post is,

1. There is a God.

2. He did not create me and this universe without a purpose.

3. God wanted us to live in a specific manner.

4. If I don’t obey Him, there is no loss for Him.

5. But I will be the loser because it is me who needs Him.

 

Stop0think!
