The Sources of Islam

Part One: The Black Square

The famous sacred black stone [housed in the Kaaba] is noticed in the T’ang (Chinese seventh century History). – E. Brentschneider Mediaeval Researches from Eastern Asiatic Sources

Muhammad was born and educated among the Arabs and was of the tribe of the Koreish, which was considered both noble and accomplished. That tribe itself worshiped as the Meccan temple, because of this it was given the name ahal alahi (meaning: God’s people), as well as al-habs (meaning: steadfast in religion).  The poet Faik (spiking of the tribe of Koreish) in a manuscript called jahalait al-arab, [states], “We are the people of God.  We are not like other men.  We do not go beyond the circle of God.”

The Kaaba

The circle of God is in reference to the temple in Mecca the native city of Muhammad. Pilgrimages to this temple predate Islam by many centuries, those who made the pilgrimage were called “The Servants of Kaaba”.  According to the founding of the Kaaba, we have traditional folklore that tells us that Adam forty times sought Mecca on foot (to visit the temple) which remained until the deluge, at which point it was taken up to heaven. At another time God commanded Abraham to build another in its place with Gabriel indicating where it was formerly. (That which is below is like that which is above and that which is above is like yet which is below – Translation of Emerald Tablet of Thoth ~ Isaac Newton c. 1680) Others say that God sent down a pattern (for building the temple) and at the same time commanded Abraham to build a shrine next to it and to add or subtract nothing … but that Gabriel brought from heaven to his building a black stone.

This practice that existed before Islam was to “quick step” around (in a circle seven times) the Kaaba while nude. This was apparently to show that they wished for their sins to be forgiven. The Kaaba (a square black box) itself is a form of Saturn worship [Zohal]. This shrine and all it’s customs of circling the Kaaba were adopted into Islam (without the nudity) to gain more Arab converts.

The Black Stone

The black stone that Gabriel brought down from heaven is speculated to be a meteorite. Maximus Tyrius wrote in the second century, “The Arabians pay homage to I know not what god, which they represent by a quadrangular stone.” In harmony with the Kaaba itself being a symbol of Saturn Worship we read on Page 343 Record of Christian Work: “The Guebars or ancient Persians assert that the black stone was an emblem of Saturn and was left in the Kaaba by Mahabad. We have the Moslem tradition that it came down snow-white from heaven and was blackened by the touch of sin-according to one tradition, that of an impure woman, and according to another by the kisses of thousands of believers… Moslem historians do not deny that it was an object of worship before Islam, but they escape the moral difficulty and justify their prophet by idle tales concerning the stone and its relation to all the patriarchs beginning with Adam.”

These folktales and oral traditions of the Kaaba seem to be a justification to keep Arab pagan practices. Looking into the sources of Islam will show that it is not the product of an original divine revelation but a piece meal of Arab paganism, Christian Gnosticism, and Jewish Talmudic teachings.

Part Two: Throwing Stones

Deuca’lion and Pyrrha re-peopled the world by throwing stones behind them, as directed by the oracle. – Johnson’s Dictionary of Heathen Deities

In the Quran an annual pilgrimage to Mecca called ha-ja-ton and hajj is commanded to be made. (Al-Baqara 2:196; Surah 3:97) This is based on a belief that God (through the angel Gabriel) had commanded Abraham and Ishmael (some say to Adam himself) to do so, as we read Al Hasanus: “Gabriel, of blessed memory, showed to Abraham all these rites, up to when he arrived at Araphat, this is where Abraham is reported to have said that he learned these rites from Gabriel.” Still an argument can be made that this was (barring any divine instruction) another way to keep the traditions of the ancient Arabs appeased by preserving the main parts of their ancient religion and to ensure converts to Islam at the same time.

We have discussed previously that among the Arabian tribes making pilgrimages and seeking Mecca for the purpose of religion pre-dates Islam. These practices when arriving in Mecca where to walk in a circle around the shrine, running between Safa and Merva (signifying) complicity with God, offering gifts, throwing stones as well as a designating sacred months in which it was wrong to attack others with hostile intent or war. (see Specim. Histor. Arabum p. 312) We can observe that Muhammad sanctioned by the authority of the Quran those ancient practices and it is also clear that Muhammad observed the above mentioned ceremonies in the solemn pilgrimage to Mecca previous to any vision.

Cubar the Morning Star

All these ancient Arabian practices have been given a story (mostly involving Abraham and Gabriel) to justify keeping the pagan practices. Take for example the throwing of stones in the Valley Mina, which pilgrims are still accustomed to observe. The story they tell in essences is “Abraham by throwing rocks, put to flight the Devil coming against him.”

Rocks are called al-aqbaton, since they are thrown backwards between the legs under the genitals. An old writer correctly observed that that rite existed among the Saracens long ago, celebrated from antiquity in honor of Venus, as it also preserved by Muhammad, who decreed only that the genitals be covered.  Out of this Vincent Bellovacensis, Book xxiv of Speculi Historialis [Historical Mirror], relates: Therefore, this custom (of throwing stones), though it came down to the Arabs from the Indians, and Muhammad found it to be celebrated in  honor of Venus, decreed it to remain so, although he removed other deceptions of idolatry.  But in that celebration it is said to have been the custom to present only to Venus that feature of throwing stones backwards, that is, under the genitalia, because Venus was especially dominant in those parts.

The Saracens (whom Hilarion is reported to entreat to worship God rather than stones) worshiped Lucifer the “Bringer of light” also called the morning star. The name the Saracens use for the planet Venus is Cubar, which the Greeks and Romans considered as the star of Venus, the goddess or beauty and of love. The Saracens prayer which has been preserved to this day was: “Alla, Alla, oua, Cubar” when translated and expounded means: “God, God, greater Egg, Cubar (Venus; Lucifer, Bright Star etc.)” The fertility religion and practices of the Saracens are only preserved today by it’s adaptation into Islam.

Part Three: God, Jesus and Mary

And behold! Allah will say: “O Jesus the son of Mary! Didst thou say unto men, worship me and my mother as gods in derogation of Allah?” – The Quran Surah 5:116

It can not be denied (unless we suspend reason) that Muhammad took many things from Christians (the whole 19th chapter of the Quran is dedicated to Jesus’ mother Mary) in the same way he did with the Arabian traditional religions. These Christians consisted of those who followed the opinions of Nestor and Eutychus who fled to Arabia for asylum. At the time Muhammad was born Christianity was thriving in Arabia, the tribes of Bahra, Tanuch, Taglab, all embraced it, as did it flourish in the tribes of Rabia, Gassan and Taitae. (Ibn Calican; Abdu’l Feda Tribes of the Arabs)

Almondar, king of Hira, had also accepted the Christian religion, and undertook the building of temples for Christians.  Abul Feda states: “And in it (the city of Hira) Al Mondar ibn Amriij Kaisi embraced Christianity, and he constructed large temples in it.”According to Saffiodinus, bishops were also appointed.  La Croze in his great work Dissertations Historiques, tells us about Scharestanius and how he showed that many inhabitants of Medina were Christians; according to Albocharius, Muhammad’s wife, Kadijah, had a relative, Warkab, who was a Christian.

The early Islamist themselves state that the Quran is similar to the gospel  Abdo’l-Bakides says in is work History of the Abyssinians, Part 2, chapter 2 regarding the Mohammedan Gjasar, that he proclaimed to the king of Ethiopia (referred to by the ancient Arabs as Nagjaschi): “We believe in him (Muhammad), for he has with him a glorious book, similar to the book of Isa (Jesus) son of Mary, which agrees with it.”

Mary the Goddess

The Meccans accused Muhammad of using a Christian teacher in sewing together his own religion. (Surah 16:103) On this Jalaluddin: This one was Qais, a Christian, whose house Muhammad frequented. His teacher, Bahira, was called Nestorius, a monk of Bosra in Damascene Syria, from the monastery of Abdo’l Kais. In Dialog With Abu-Salama, Arab Prince, the monk Georgius [states]: When he (Muhammad) set out for Jerusalem, he encountered a Christian man of the Nestorian Sect, whose name was Bahira.  However, when (Muhammad) asked him of what sect he was, and what religion he professed, and Bahira perceived that he (Muhammad) was from that tribe (of the Koreisch), led by compassion and love, helped him, and gave him some basic instruction in the knowledge of God, and read to him some chapters of the Pentateuch, the gospel and the psalms.

In the course of these lessons Muhammad develops an opinion of Christ to be a person of greatness, and speaks of him respectfully as a distinguished prophet and is angry with the Jews for killing Christ.  (although the Quran says they did not kill him at all, they just thought they did Surah 4:157) Because of the (some would consider heretical Christianity he was learning) he also come to believe that Mary is a goddess inasmuch as she gave birth to God.  Under the influence of the Nestorian “heresy” influenced Muhammad to deny that Christ suffered, but it was instead only a phantasm or image of Christ wrongly held by the Jews to be him.

Yet, that error was not from the Nestorians, who affirmed that Christ was a mere man, though crucified, in these words: Why, O Jews, do you boast.  You’ve crucified a man, not God! You will find these similarities in the “heresies” of the Eutychians and Aphtardocetae, as is clear from ecclesiastical history.

Part Four: Sand for Water

And ye will not come to me, that ye might have life. – John 5:40

Besides pagan Arabs, Sabeans and Christians, both orthodox and Heretics, a large crowd of Jews filled Arabia. In the Talmud there is, here and there, mention of Jews dwelling in Arabia; Rabbi Zacuth, in Sepher Yuchasin, mentions that the largest number of talmidim [disciples] were in Arabia.  “Rabbi Mosheh had many disciples, and from them came Rabbi Joseph Ben Isaac … who expounded in Arabic to a sultan the entire Talmud.”

The Jewish people where well known to Muhammad, as ones who dwelt in Mecca and Medina, some rabbis prevailed upon the princes of the Meccans, that they [the rabbis] might question Muhammad about certain things.  Moreover, [he relates that] a certain Jew approached Muhammad and requested that he explain to him the things that Joseph had seen in a dream.

As we are told in Surah 12:111” There is, in their [rabbis] stories, instruction for men endued with understanding. It is not a tale invented, but a confirmation of what went before it,- a detailed exposition of all things, and a guide and a mercy to any such as believe.” In the section People of the Book Scharestanius has these things:  “Prior to the mission of Muhammad there were two sects opposed to one another; the People of the Book and the uneducated.  An uneducated one is he who does not know letters. But Jews and Christians dwelt at Medina; the uneducated at Mecca.”

We don’t need to mention how Islam follows the Law of Moses in circumcision and not eating of certain animals (such as pigs) in that there are also simple ways to see the connections to Jewish traditions in the forgoing example: – A Moslem is required to perform ablutions before prayer. “But if ye be sick, or on a journey…. and ye find no water, take fine clean sand, and rub your faces and your hands therewith,” etc. (Vide Hughes, Dictionary of Islam p. 477) Sand as substitute for water was permitted to the Jews in their devotions. (Berachoth 15a, Chullin 122b). It should be known to the reader that the Talmudic Jewish religion has much more complex rituals that can be seen as adopted by Muhammad in the following:

The Talmudic Connections

The Jewish Talmudic religion is replete with wonderful dogmas, singular rites and tales, which were found to be very agreeable to the institution of Islam. The name itself, Quran, seems to be fabricated by Muhammad according to the custom of the Jews, who used to call the sacred books ha-mikra, just as he assigned to his Quran the Jewish name of these books, ke-tu-vah, “writings”, and called it, at Surah 3:1, al-kitab [literally, “the writing” or “the book”]. The renowned Jewish teachers, in gemara of Kiddushin 30a, ascribe, at length, not to the Massoretes but to the men of the Great Synagogue: The First Ones (men of the Great Synagogue) were called “sopherim” since they numbered all of the letters which exist in the Divine Law.  They observed “vav” of the word “ga-hhon” (Leviticus 11:42) to be the middle letter of the Pentateuch, the second “darash” (of Leviticus 10:16) to be the middle word of the Pentateuch and Leviticus 13, verse 33 to be the middle one of the verses.

The Mohammedans imitated this diligence of the Jews to the extent that not only did they reduce their Quran into certain orders and chapters, Suras, not only into verses, or clauses, which they call signs (at Surah 3:69 and 7:38), but also they undertook, with incredible labor, [giving] the number of all the words, letters and particles [of letters] of the Quran, according to the commentary, in manuscript, to the book by Abul Chair Muhammad Gezari.  From this it is clear that in the whole Quran are found 99,464 words.  The letter Alif occurs 48, 940 times; Ba 11,480; Ta 10,480; Tze 1,404.  Thus too they number most diligently other letters of the Quran.  This also is clear from the Quranic Massoretic work, in manuscript, of Abul Casim Omar ben Muh[ammad] Caphensis, which contains the number of chapters and verses, both according to the reckoning of the Medinites, the Cusensites, and, according to the reckoning of others.

It is hoped that this series shed some light on the Islamic faith, its origins, and the sources it takes it’s faith from. All three sources fail to meet the words of the Lord Jesus as quoted above.
