You said that
"Look at how Muslims go by plane on Haj just to kiss the black stone..that is stone worship..and the Kaab is called "house of God"..is not God every where? why he needs house? why Muslims have to go all the way to kaba taking flights and crush each other there and sometimes get killed just to kiss the black stone? That is idolatry. The black stone has no divine power was worshipped for a long time by pagan Arabs before islam."

"Do you know that the Qureysh used to worship Kabah? do you know that they used to fast? "

I wonder all Christians like you spend too much time for accusing of Islam before getting basic knowledge about it. Two words side by side "Idolatry" and "Islam" don't make sense at all. Anyway, I will continue to educate people by giving basic information from Quran. The black stone has no record in Quran although there are several verses for hajj. The reason is that it is not an item for worshipping Allah or God. The black stone is just used for the construction of the Kaaba. Muhammed (pease upon him) used to kiss and touch it. That's why Muslims repeat his actions because of their respect to Muhammed (Peace upon him) during the hajj. Do you blame Muslims for kissing holly objects?

Have you heard Holly Grail, the mug or glass used by Jesus at the last supper?
I watched a TV documentary about it. Many churches claim that theirs is original one. Anyway, Vatican has one copy of it. I saw on TV that the old pope show it to the crowd and kissed it. If Vatican allows Christians to kiss Holly Grail then see how people crush each other including you. Are you still blaming Muslims for kissing holly objects?

Kaaba, as stated in Quran which is only true source for Muslims, is the first Mosque build by Abraham and his son to worship Allah. That's it is important and is still used by Muslims. Every Muslims knows very well that Before Islam Kaaba was full of idols. Then it was cleared from those rubbish. Pagan Araps made alot of money from idols in the past. Now Christians sell and buy idols to put them in their churches and houses. We Muslims don't have black stones in our houses and Mosques.

I will not give information about "fasting". Read your bible instead of reminding me about fasting of pagan Arabs. As far as I know Jews and Christians used to fast in tha past.

P.S. It is weird to ask questions about the religion before Islam in Makka. All enough information is available in Quran.
Submitting....
