How non-Islamic websites confuse polytheist pagan Arabs and monotheist Muslims?

Reader comment on item: Is Allah God?

Submitted by Nuray (Portugal), Dec 24, 2005 at 16:17

Bible(s) was(were) written almost 600 years before Allah sent down Quran. Christians have no means in their holly books to attack religion of Islam. Quran says their original the holy book(s) have some verses about Muhammed, peace upon him. In this century their corrupted holly book has nothing about Islam. Then what remains only to them is to find a relation between polytheist pagan Arabs and monotheist Muslims. It doesn't make sense at all. But they have no other choices.

Babylon is an ancient city in Mesopotamia or modern Al Hillah, in Iraq. Al Hillah is a city in central Iraq on the river Euphrates, 100 km (62 miles) south of Baghdad, It is the capital of Babil province. In October 539 BCE, the Persian king Cyrus took Babylon, the ancient capital of an oriental empire covering modern Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, and Israel.

As I written before ("Allah is NOT a moon God," Submitted by Nuray, December 18, 2005)
Muslim historical books clearly indicates that an idol (Hubal, titles as a moon God by evangelical Christians) having a shape of a man was brought from Syria to Mecca. On the Prophet's conquest of Mecca, 360 idols were found in Kabaa. He broke Hubal together with all the idols down and had them removed and burned up. If Hubal was God, then they should find a reasonable answer ) why our messenger didn't keep it in the Kabaa but remove it. But they can't find any. Their wishful thinkings can't go so far.

Muslims don't worship Idols. Our mosques are not full of idols of Muhammed, peace upon him like churches having idols of Jesus, Virgin Marry and many others. Churches look like Kabaa having many idols at the time of pagan Arabs. Christians converted pagan Romans at the expense of accepting their indulgence of using sculpture in holly places. Our houses are free from any idols. We Muslims don't have any pictures of our messenger.

Muslims kiss the black stone in Kabaa during the hajj to show their respect to a holly object. Christians kiss the feet of the statutes of apostles in Vatican. If Vatican let Christians kiss holy Grail I am sure that all Christians will rush to Rome to kiss it. Am I right? Yes, indeed.

Some Christians like airing stories about Idols of pagan Arabs. Lat, Uzza and Menat, which were associated with Allah as daughters of Him by pagan Arabs who know Allah as Supreme Being. These idols are mentioned in Quran. They took role in "Satanic verses" story. Hubal is not mentioned in Quran. But it found its role in the Moon-god. Any way, pagan Arabs had 360 idols that means we will hear more idol-based funny stories from Christians. Those stories in non-Islamic websites are fabricated not to challenge Muslims but to deceive Christians about Islam. Actually, the target of non-Islamic websites is not Muslims but Christians. Muslims won't attention those fabricated stories. They have their own historians and history books to learn everything about Islam. Those books are also source of information for non-Muslims. I wonder why they didn't come up with any reference from those Islamic history books to support their story about Hubal. They do so when they criticize the person of Muhammed, peace up on him. Why not Hubal? Is it difficult to read in Arabic? This research could be a homework for those non-Islamic websites.
