Our dear slayhy was told in his madrassa to say:

Like Idol worshipers and Pagans of ancient times. we have past that time,

Well let me see and here is a famous hadith about Omar being horrified that he has to kiss a certain black stone and here is the hadith in Arabic

رأيت عمر يقبل الحجر ويقول اني لأعلم أنك حجر ماتنفع ولا تضر ولولا أني رأيت رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم يقبلك ماقبلتك

And this is what the hadith says

I saw Omar kissing the stone (read this as the black stone in Mecca) and he was saying i know that you (the black stone) are a stone (read this as idol made of stone) you do not provide benefit and you do no harm and only becuase i saw the prophet of Allah blah...blah...blah kissing you i would not have kissed you

Do you know what this means our dear slayhy al-tablighee? let me help you:

1. Omar is saying that it is no more than a stone

2. Muhammad kissed such stone

3. Omar disagrees with Muhammad astaghfirullah who said that if Muslims kiss it then their sins would be gone so who is the liar here?

And you come and lecture is about paganism? But wait if Allah does not like paganism where can i join?

What a disaster
