Reader comment on item: Red Mosque in Rebellion
in response to reader comment: Pagan idols ya ayuha al-faylasoof al-kabeer? how bout kissing the baclk stone in al-Ka3ba?

Submitted by syed mohammad ali (India), Aug 6, 2007 at 12:49

When Umar ibn al-Khattab (580-644), the second Caliph, came to kiss the Stone, he said in front of all assembled: "No doubt, I know that you are a stone and can neither harm anyone nor benefit anyone. Had I not seen Allah's Messenger [Muhammad] kissing you, I would not have kissed you."[11] Many Muslims follow Umar: they pay their respects to the Black Stone in a spirit of trust in Muhammad, not with any belief in the Black Stone itself. This, however does not indicate their disrespect to the stone, but their belief that harm and benefit are in the hands of God, and nothing else.Stone is best considered as a marker, useful in keeping count of the ritual circumambulations (tawaf) one has performed.[12]......

i am really happy Alllah almighty make me a muslim .....ALHAMDULILLAH ....LET ME TELL YOU SOME THING FROM ARYAN SOURCES

Now we go to the words of the prophets themselves, which represent another path that leads to Islam. In the Persian scriptures, which have been around for thousands of years, we read:

"When the Persians should sink so low in mortality, a man will be born in Arabia whose followers will upset their throne, religion and everything. The mighty stiff-necked ones will be overpowered. The house which was built and in which many idols have been placed will purged of idols and people will say their prayers facing towards it. His followers will capture the towns of the Farsi, Entaus and Balkh, and other big places round about. People will embroil with one another. The wise men of Persia and others will join his followers." (Desature no.14)

The Muslims recognize this very quickly because the Ka'bah, the building which all Muslims face in prayers everyday, was at one time filled with idols and it was part of the mission of Muhammad , peace be upon him, to purge the house of idols till today. It was in the next generation, after the time of the Prophet that the wise men of Persia and others did join his followers. .....I AM ONE OF THEM AND VERY PROUD ONE .
