Is Allah the Name of God?
Allah is the name of the only God in Islam. Allah is a pre-Islamic name coming from the compound Arabic word Al-ilah which means the God, which is derived from al (the) ilah (deity).
The Arabic name for “God” is the word “Al-ilah.” It is a generic title for whatever god was considered the highest god. Different Arab tribes used “Allah” to refer to its personal high god. “Allah” was being worshipped at the Kaa’ba in Mecca by Arabs prior to the time of Mohammed. It was formerly the name of the chief god among the numerous idols (360) in the Kaaba in Mecca before Mohammed made them into monotheists. Historians have shown that the moon god called “Hubal” was the god to whom Arabs prayed at the Kaa’ba and they used the name “Allah” when they prayed.
Today a Muslim is one, who submits to the God Allah.
Islam means submission to (Allah), but originally it meant that strength which characterized a desert warrior who, even when faced with impossible odds, would fight to the death for his tribe. (Dr. M. Baravmann, The Spiritual Background of Early Islam, E. J. Brill, Leiden, 1972)
Many believe the word “Allah” was derived from the mid- eastern word “el” which in Ugaritic, Caananite and Hebrew can mean a true or false God. This is not the case, “The source of this (Allah) goes back to pre-Muslim times. Allah is not a common name meaning “God” (or a “god”), and the Muslim must use another word or form if he wishes to indicate any other than his own peculiar deity.” (Encyclopedia of Religion and Ethics (ed. Hastings), I:326.)
According to the Encyclopedia of Religion, Allah corresponded to the Babylonian god Baal, and Arabs knew of him long before Mohammed worshiped him as the supreme God. Before Islam the Arabs recognized many gods and goddesses, each tribe had their own deity. There were also nature deities. Allah was the god of the local Quarish tribe, which was Mohammed’s tribe before he invented Islam to lead his people out of their polytheism. Allah was then known as the Moon God, who had 3 daughters who were viewed as intercessors for the people into Allah. Their names were Al-at, Al-uzza, and Al-Manat, which were three goddesses; the first two daughters of Allah had names which were feminine forms of Allah. Hubal was the chief God of the Kaaba among the other 360 deities. Hubal was a statue likeness of a man whose body was made of red precious stones whose arms were made of gold. (Reference Islam George Braswell Jr.)
“Historians like Vaqqidi have said Allah was actually the chief of the 360 gods being worshiped in Arabia at the time Mohammed rose to prominence. Ibn Al-Kalbi gave 27 names of pre-Islamic deities…Interestingly, not many Muslims want to accept that Allah was already being worshiped at the Ka’ba in Mecca by Arab pagans before Mohammed came. Some Muslims become angry when they are confronted with this fact. But history is not on their side. Pre-Islamic literature has proved this.” (G. J. O. Moshay, Who Is This Allah? (Dorchester House, Bucks, UK, 1994), pg. 138).
History has shown Mecca and the holy stone al-Kaaba were holy sites for pre-Islamic pagan Arabs. The Kaaba in Mecca was formerly named Beit-Allah meaning House of Allah. We are told it was first built in heaven. This is in contradistinction to what Moses was instructed to build, something overlooked by the Muslims in their reading of the Bible.
The Koran tells us that Mohammed drove the other idols away; he made one God now the only god and he was its messenger. He kept the Kaaba as a holy, sacred place and confirmed that the black stone had the power to take away man’s sins. He obligated every believer to make a pilgrimage to the stone at least once in his lifetime. (Sura 22:26-37) No Old Testament saint ever had a pilgrimage to the Kaaba and kissed its black stone despite stories that Abraham and Ishmael restored it.
Mohammed used the name Allah which was formerly the name of a specific idol without ever distinguishing it from the idol the Meccan’s were already worshiping. This was a modification of their former worship but never a complete break. He never did say for the people to stop their worship of the wrong Allah, for the right one. It can still be monotheism and not be the God of the Bible.
Al-Lat which is a T at the end of the name of Allah, was represented by a square stone whose major sanctuary was in the city of Taif. In the sanctuary was a black stone in the town of Qudayd between Mecca and Medina. She was the goddess of fate, a female counterpart of Allah. Al-uzza was the goddess of east Mecca. It has been said there were human sacrifices made to her and Islamic tradition tells of a story of Mohammed’s grandfather almost sacrificing his son the father of Mohammed to her. What prevented this was his seeking counsel from a fortune teller which told him to ransom his son with one hundred camels. Muslims look to this as the will of Allah to bring Mohammed into existence. (Reference Muhammad husain haykal, Hayat mohammed)
“The name Allah, as the Qur’an itself is witness, was well known in pre-Islamic Arabia. Indeed, both it and its feminine form, Allat, are found not infrequently among the theophorous names in inscriptions from North Africa.” (Arthur Jeffrey, ed., Islam: Muhammad and His Religion (1958), p. 85.)
The literal name of Mohammed’s father in Arabic is Abd Allah. His uncle’s name Obred Allah. These names show the devotion of Mohammed’s families pagan roots, and also prove that Allah was part of a polytheistic system of worship before Allah was made the supreme and only god from the other God’s. This should be proof to the pre- Islamic root of the name of Allah to the Muslim. Remember they were pagans who used this name. He kept his family name above all the other names. Mohammad had good intentions in removing the people from their polytheistic worship however he did not go far enough in his reform.
Mecca was the place where the idol Allah was located, so the people would face in that direction when they prayed. Prior to Islam the people would pray 5 times a day facing Mecca (The Encyclopedia of Islam p.303) Prior to Islam’s beginning each Arab tribe used Allah to refer to its own particular high god. This is why Hubal, the Moon god, (known by other names) was the central focus of prayer at the Kaabah and people prayed to Hubal and they used the name Allah. The crescent moon was the symbol of the moon God Allah (Hubal) and is still used as a symbol of Islam today (although they have changed the meaning to be -from Mecca to the moon Islam will spread). Today there is hardly a Muslim that knows its ancient origin. History records it as an ancient pagan fertility symbol that is found throughout the Middle East. Mohammed smashed all the idols that led the people into idolatry but the black stone was kept which Muslims continue to kiss today. This was another practice that preceded Mohammad.
Mohammed made Allah into a single being who, unlike the Bible’s God who is called Father, has no Son. Because of this portrayal, there is no fellowship or love among the godhead before God created man. Creation and man therefore become a necessity for God to express His attributes or characteristic’s. This God has never revealed Himself to man but revealed only His will. This God is so removed from man that it is impossible to know him in a personal way, he relates to man only through his will and law. It is a religion of obedience no different than any other.
To the Muslim God is strictly singular, all seeing, all hearing, almighty, He is the first and the last. But what differs is that he has no Son and he cannot be called Father who relates to His son in a unique way (Son and Father does not mean offspring in historic Christianity).
Of the 99 names of God in Islam, not one is “Father” or has a personal connotation. The difference is not to be overlooked. The God of the Bible is personal and wants an ongoing friendship with each of us. Islam portrays God as one who expects us to do our religious duty or He angers. There are rules to be obeyed and one can only please him but not know him personally. No Muslim would ever consider being able to have a personal relationship with him, by talking to him, and loving him. Jesus instead taught Christians to pray “our Father in heaven” (Matthew 6:9). Throughout the Old Testament God was real to the prophets who had him personally speak to them and they to him. “Have we not all one Father? Has not one God created us? Why do we deal treacherously with one another by profaning the covenant of the fathers?” (Mal 2:10)
In Islam some state that if one memorizes the 99 names of Allah and repeats them he will get into paradise because they give the believer power, making them conscious of God. Neither the Koran nor the Hadith speak of these names in such a way. The Suras in the Koran begin with “In the name of Allah, most gracious, most merciful. Yet in practice Islam’s god is portrayed as stern, harsh, having compassion on those who do right and deals severely with those who do not.
To a Muslim the God of the Bible who is described as triune is offensive and pagan, reminding them of what Mohammed destroyed. This is recorded in their Qu’ran. They interpret this as 3 separate Gods and not a unified one. “ They are unbelievers who say God is a third of three. No God is there but one God.” While Muslims affirm Jesus’ virgin conception, they deny He had any pre-existence that would imply He is God. To call a prophet God is the ultimate in blasphemy to them. “ Verily God will not forgive the union of other gods with himself.” This is a true statement; however if Jesus is who He said He is, the true God, then it is they who are in union with another than the true God.
Muslims claim that the name Allah can be found in the Bible. This is no different than what the Jehovah’s Witnesses do for the name Jehovah. Allah is not called Yahweh once in the Koran but neither is Yahweh called Allah in the Bible. So they can’t be the same God. Neither is the word Elohim which is applied to Yahweh over 2,500 times in the Bible used in the Koran. Neither is he called I Am, which He said to Moses would be His name forever.
The God of the Bible identifies himself as the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. Jacobs name is later changed to the name Israel, being the father of the 12 tribes of Israel. The God of the Bible calls Jerusalem the city of David and that the Messiah would descend from his lineage. Neither does the God of the Bible does not mention Mecca or Medina but instead Jerusalem 800 times. Yet Jerusalem is not mentioned in the Koran, which the Muslim claims as their own.
The God in the Bible is called the God of the Jews, an impossibility with Allah. They are called his chosen people, but they are not Allah’s chosen. Allah commands the Muslim to not take the Jews or Christians as friends, Sura.5:51 disdains the Jews. Mohammed said, “The last hour will not come before the Muslims fight the Jews, and the Muslims kill them.” (Mishkat Al Masabih Sh.M. Ashraf pp.147, 721, 810-11, 1130). So how could Israel inherit the land or any of God’s promises from Allah, if he is their God. Clearly he is not the same God of the Bible.
Muslims trying to prove their position from the Bible point to the Old Testament with the word alleluyah, interpreting the first portion of the word alle as Allah. The word [H]alleluyah is not a compound Hebrew word. It is not two words but a singular word meaning praise to Yahweh. (alle- praise, lu-to, yah-Yaweh). The beginning of the word is Hallel meaning praise. This has nothing to do with an Allah, and the last syllable of the word is a reference to Yahweh the God of the Bible, this is hardly any evidence for their assertions. They are also confusing Aramaic with Arabic. This is not unusual, as Muslims will often take words and meanings set in another language and culture and adopt them for proof of their own book or religion.
This word play only gets more ludicrous as they try to have Jesus saying the name of their God. When Jesus was on the cross they claim when he cried out Eli, Eli it was really is Allah, Allah. The New Testament was written in Greek, however it points us to him speaking the Aramaic language, not Arabic. Jesus was quoting Psalm 22:1 which read in full says, Eli, Eli Sabbathani “My God, My God why have you forsaken me.” What makes even less sense for this position is the fact that they don’t believe that it was Jesus on the cross in the first place, but that another took His place. Some think it was Judas; so it was Judas crying out Allah, Allah?
The first Arabic translation of the Bible was made about the 9th century. Nowhere is the name of Allah found in the Old or New Testament as a name for God. When Islam became the dominant political force people were coerced to use the name Allah for God or suffer the consequences from the hands of militant Muslims. Because of Islam’s dominance Allah became the common name of God. The translators of the Bible gave in to the religious pressures and substituted Allah for Yahweh in the Arabic Bibles, but this is not the name of the God of the Hebrews, nor of the creator who made heaven and earth because of its source in paganism. His nature and attributes have only a few basic similarities and many more differences. And the most important point is that all through the Qu’ran it says Allah has no son.

In all cases we come across, the Allah word and its identity was preexisted before Prophet Muhammad, and his reveled faith Islam. Prophet Muhammad used the Identity of Allah for Islam, which is an identity theft for self benefits. Islam God is only a human mind born or imaginative identity that is named as Allah. If Prophet Muhammad was so sacred then why Allah did not communicate with him directly? Why it needed a mediator angel Gabriel? What is the authenticity of angel Gabriel? Is it a fake or imaginative/mind born identity? or real one? If he was real one then why God of Islam chose Prophet Muhammad as messenger? Why itself angel Gabriel didn’t communicated directly with Islam followers? Why need first person (angel Gabriel), second person (prophet Muhammad) and third persons Islamic clergies or spiritual promoters or leaders? If Allah created everything then why need followers and a faith sytem to be adored? If Allah has inability to communicate directly with its lovers and devotees then what is the authenticity of its identity and powers? If Allah made everything then why Islam tries to impose their thoughts to followers and non-believers? If Non believers and other faiths are creation of itself Allah then why hate of discrimination causes by itself faith Islam? Why Allah has a desire of followers love and devotions? or all are lies in the name of Allah by itself prophet Muhammad and by his promoters? Allah is the God of Prophet Muhhamad because itself prophet Muhammad had claimed Allah had communicated him through the angel Gabriel, which is a personal matter of him and his imagination, which is not manadatory that all should belive what he had believed in his faulty perceptions. If it was not a faulty perception then it was lies for specific bad motive that points to criminal attitude not to any sacredness. If any person see any imaginative identity and communicate with that identity personally, which is impossible with other mentally healthy human beings; its called a mental illness which is know as schizophrenia not an extraordinary ability.

– Ali Dashti missed possible other wives –
Children: Muhammad had four daughters (Ruqayyah bint Muhammad, Umm Kulthum bint Muhammad, Zainab bint Muhammad, Fatimah Zahra) and two sons (Abd-Allah ibn Muhammad and Qasim ibn Muhammad) who both died in childhood. All except two of his daughters, Fatimah and Zainab, died before him. Shi’a scholars contend that Fatimah was Muhammad’s only daughter. Maria al-Qibtiyya bore him a son named Ibrahim ibn Muhammad, but the child died when he was two years old. So there was no male decedent of Muhammad after his death.
Date of revelation of religion: Probably 610 AD by a messenger of God Angel Gabriel to Muhammad in a cave of Mountain Hira when he was 40.
Islam: Islam is derived from the Arabic root “Salema” means peace, purity, submission and obedience. In the religious sense, Islam means submission to the will of God and obedience to his law; or the word Islam is a verbal noun originating from the triliteral root s-l-m, and is derived from the Arabic verb Aslama, which means “to accept, surrender or submit.” Thus, Islam means acceptance of and submission to God. Islam is the Abrahamic monotheistic religion which is believed it’s the direct message of God or Allah by Angel Gabriel to Muhammad for mankind. It teaches Prophet Muhammad’s teachings and normative examples to mankind. According to Muslim belief, Muhammad did not create a new religion. He was rather the restorer of the original, uncorrupted monotheistic faith of Adam, Abraham, Solomon, Jesus and others. They see him as the last and the greatest in a series of prophets. Islam thus lays claim to the legitimacy of both Christianity and Judaism.
Muslim: A person who believes in and consciously follows Islam is called a Muslim. Muslim or Moslem is an adherent of the religion of Islam. Literally, the word means “one who submits (to God)”.
Quran: The Qur’an (Arabic: القرآن al-qur’ān, literally “the recitation”) is the religious text of Islam, also sometimes transliterated as Quran, Kuran, Koran, Qur’ān, Coran or al-Qur’ān. Muslims believe the Qur’an to be the verbal divine guidance and moral direction for mankind. Islam holds that the Qur’an was revealed from God to Muhammad orally through the angel Jibrīl (Gabriel) over a period of approximately twenty-three years, beginning in 610 AD, when he was forty, and concluding in 632 AD, the year of his death. Revelations consisted of verses (ayat) grouped into 114 chapters (suras). Original Qur’an was in Quraysh language and was transmitted through the memorizations and recitations by the Muhammad’s campanions till it’s coded in Arabic by his followers.
Masjid/Mosque: A mosque is a place of worship for followers of Islam, which literally means a place of prostration. The word “mosque” in English refers to all types of buildings dedicated for Islamic worship although there is a distinction in Arabic between the smaller, masjids dedicated for daily five prayers and the larger masajid where the daily five prayers and the Friday congregation sermons are held, which is attended by more people and play more roles such as teaching Qur’an. The mosque serves as a place where Muslims can come together for salat (prayer) as well as a center for information, education, and dispute settlement. The Imam (leader of a mosque and the community) leads the prayer.
Major denominations of Islam: Shi’a, Sunni and other sects of Islam (Like Ahmadia, Ismail, Salafi, Sufi, Nizari Isma’ilis, Wahhabism, etc.). An estimated 87–90% is Sunni and 10–13% is Shi’a, with a small minority belonging to other sects of Islam. After the death of Muhammad the dispute in Abu Bakr and Ali ibn Abi Talib devided Islam in two major sects of Islam. Who followed Abu Bakr (Friend of Muhammad and father of Muhhmad’s favourite wife Aisha) they called sunni and who followed Ali ibn Abi Talib( Muhammad’s cousin and son-in-law and husband of Fatimah Zahra, the daughter of Muhammad) they called Shi’a.
Initial Islam care takers, spreaders and framers:
- Abu Bakr (632-634 A.D.)
- Umar ibn al-Khattab, (Umar І) (634-644 A.D.)
- Uthman ibn Affan (644-656 A.D.)
- Ali ibn Abi Talib (656-661 A.D.)
In addition to this, there are several views regarding additional rashidun. Umar ibn Abdul Aziz (Umar ІІ), who was one of the Ummayyad caliphs, is sometimes regarded as one of the Rashidun and is quoted by Taftazani. In the Ibadhi tradition, only Abu Bakr and Umar are considered to be the Two Rightly Guided Caliphs. Suleiman the Magnificent and Abdul Hamid I of the Ottoman period are regarded by some to be amongst the rightly guided Caliphs.
Flow of the faith acceptance till Islam: Inhabitants of Arabia believed in polytheism or believed in many Gods i.e. worshiping 360 Deities in Ka’ba of Mecca as an Indians believes, and then some peoples believed in Judaism i.e. Monotheism by Abraham, then Christianity practiced by some of the inhabitants of the Arabia, after that Islam came in to force after the revelation of relgion by Muhhamd and as the national religion of Arabia and now second largest religion in the world. Believe created by Muhhamad and their followers first Implemented in Yathrib (Medina) and therafter in other regions of ancient Arabia. He forceable implemented his religion (Islam) in his home land Mecca. As Muhhamad become stronger to stronger he and their followers Imlpemented Islam to other parts of the world. This relgion highly implemented through the shine of sword and less by motivations. Conversion to other religion after the adoption of Islam is denied and brutaly punishable, therefore only it has less decy.
Percentage of Muslims Worldwide: 23% of the world population.
Largest National Islamic Populations: According to the Pew Research Center in 2010 there were 49 Muslim-majority countries. Around 62% of the world’s Muslims live in South and Southeast Asia, with over 1 billion adherents. The largest Muslim population in a country is in Indonesia, a nation home to 12.7% of the world’s Muslims, followed by Pakistan (11.0%), India (10.9%), and Bangladesh (9.2%). About 20% of Muslims live in Arab countries. In the Middle East, the non-Arab countries of Turkey and Iran are the largest Muslim-majority countries; in Africa, Egypt and Nigeria have the most populous Muslim communities. The study found more Muslims in the United Kingdom than in Lebanon and more in China than in Syria.
Story of Muhammad:
Story of Muhammad starts from the land of Mecca in Arab which is in Asia continent and was after the 537 years of Jesus’ death. Before the birth of Muhammad Arab was land of different tribes and nomadic peoples and had been influenced by different emperors. They had different culture and believe of God specially idol beliefs and some of them adopted and were practicing Judaism and Christianity as a grown religion in their regions at that time. The Arab tribes of the Jazeerah (Peninsula) – Christian, Pagan or ‘Jewish’ – fought each other over the acquisition of water resources, over blood feuds and over supremacy. Each individual Arab was known and identified by the name of the tribe to which he belonged. Although all the people of the peninsula were Arab, there was no such thing as a sense of unity or nationalism. Each tribe was a separate and independent entity, with different dialects and religious beliefs and had no feeling of affinity or loyalty to any other except in terms of mutually beneficial and convenient alliances. In general, the pagan Arabs – the majority in Arabia – had a very primitive and simple astral and animistic religion of at least 360 Gods and Goddesses probably influenced by Vedic culture of India which have no records; it’s because polytheism is only seen in the ancient India and which had no name of the belief at that time. Probably belief of polytheism might be transferred due to trading and exploration and influence to neighborhoods. Among the Gods of the pagan Arabs, Allah was one of the most important. In Mecca, Allah was the principal though not the only deity. He had three daughters: Al Lat (Crescent); Al Uzzah (Venus) and Al Manah (Fate). Besides the Ka’ba of Mecca, caves, trees, waterholes, wells etc. were also venerated especially in a bleak, arid and desolate land as theirs. There were other ‘holy’ sites also called Ka’ba besides the one in Mecca, such as the ones in Petra, Sana’ and Najran. The sun too was worshipped but not to the same level of importance as the moon. After all, Moon worship in general implies a nomadic and pastoral society, whereas Sun worship is invariably associated with an agricultural one. Most important of all is that in the scorching furnace heat of the Arabian Desert, the Sun is actually an enemy of the nomads depriving them of pasture, shade and water. On the other hand, the moon is their friend and ally providing them with light, coolness of the night, dew and shade; and this is reflected in its greater importance as a deity for them. The pagan Arabs built no temples or special structures for their Gods, unlike all the surrounding civilizations. They developed no elaborate mythology, no structured theology and no cosmogony comparable to that of any of their neighbors. The pagan Ka’ba was a special but very simple cube-like building that housed a fallen black meteorite, which was venerated as a fetish. Because of its holiness, the area surrounding it was pronounced prohibited/sacred (Haram). It was enshrined of 360 God and Goddess of Arabian tribes. Even before ‘Islam’, it was an object of annual pilgrimage and sacrifice. Most of the ‘holy’ places of their other divinities were trees, wells, caves or fallen meteors. The pagan Arabs made sacrifices – both human and animal – to ‘Venus’ (Al Uzzah) and it is recorded that Muhammad participated in giving sacrifices to this Goddess as a young man. The Bedouins also believed that the desert was full of living creatures/spirits called Jinn whose purpose was to blight their lives with mischief and difficulties. Since nomadic people bury their dead on the move and hence have no special resting-places such as graveyards, they subsequently had neither special reverence for their dead nor any concept of an afterlife, of resurrection, a Day of Judgment or heaven and hell; these came with ‘Islam’. The Arabian Peninsula harbored, besides the indigenous tribes who followed the traditions of the Jews and the Christians, were the Sabeans and the ‘Hanifs’ who were believers in the One and Only God of Abraham; these latter must have been off-shoots from either the ‘Jews’ or the Christians or both. So Kaaba was only the famous pilgrimage in Mecca at that time where the deities of Arabia were worshipped indicates most of the Arabian believed in Polytheisms so Mecca was a center of business and spiritual activities. There is a controversy that Muhammad belongs to decedents of Abraham by Ishmael; as proof of their position, Muslims refer to genealogies written around 770-775 AD. by Ibn Ishak. What he has written is simply not true. Ishmaelite tribes, especially the tribe of Nebaioth from which, according to Ibn Ishak, Muhammad is said to have come, were nomadic tribes who lived in the Sinai and Fertile Crescent deserts. These tribes disappeared after the 7th century BC. Mohammed’s family was a Sabaean Yemeni family, while the Ishmaelites, who lived in the deserts of the Fertile Crescent, became extinct many centuries before Mohammed’s family left Yemen. Historians say that the family of Muhammed was a family which lived in Saba-Yemen. In the 5th century AD, Qusayy Bin Kilab, the 8th ancestor of Muhammad, gathered an alliance of many Yemeni families forming Quraish/Quraysh, the tribe from which Muhammad later came. These families only came to occupy Mecca in the 5th century AD. The city of Mecca was built by the tribe of Khuzaa’h in the 4th century AD. Mohammed’s family is not connected to any Ishmaelite tribe because Muhammad’s family didn’t leave Yemen until the 5th century AD., and that’s about 1,100 years after the Ishmaelites disappeared. Mohammed’s tribe could not have lived in the same locations as the Ishmaelite tribes at any time throughout history. The genealogy fabricated by Ibn-Ishak contradicts the sayings of Muhammad, who expressed his ignorance about his ancestors prior to his 17th ancestor. Ibn Ishak was considered by the Muslim scholars of his time as being guilty of forgery and fabricating false genealogies. Abdullah, the son of Abdul Muttalib, and the father of Muhammad, was only then 24 years of age, affianced to Amina bint Wahab. Briefly was the wedded life of Abdullah and Amina. Soon after their marriage ‘Abdallah would be called to as-Sham (present day Syria) on a trading caravan. However, ‘Abdallah would become sick and would die before returning to Makkah and his pregnant wife. It was their first and last parting, for on the return journey, Muhammad’s father, Abdullah, sickened and died almost six months before he was born. He was buried in Dar-i Nabigha, among the Banu Najjar. For the support of his widow, Abdullah left behind him no richer legacy than four camels, a flock of goats and a slave girl. Under the rocks of the Abu Kobeis, which rise eastward of Mecca over the narrow valley, stood the house of Amina, the birthplace of her only son Muhammad. It was probably 570 AD or on the morning of Monday, April 22, 571 AD or Friday, the 17th of Rabi-ul Awwal Muhammad born into the clan of the Banu Hashim of the Quraysh tribe, so it was grandfather Abdul Muttalib, who named him Muhammad (the extolled one). The air was heavy in Mecca and the children there grew up pale, weak and sickly. All about and around Mecca was desert, whose air was limpid. For this reason, it was a custom among the Arab gentry and nobility that the mother did not nurse their children. They would give their suckling infants into the charge of Bedouin women shortly after birth to suckle and nourish them. Abdul Muttalib assigned his grandson into the nursing care of Halima al-Sadiyyah, the daughter of Abu Dhuayb, belonging to the clan of Sa’d, near Mount Taif, situated to the east of Mecca. The little Muhammad’s five years of life spent in the tents of this wandering tribe. Having nurtured for a period of five years, the wet nurse Halima gave him back to his mother, Amina, who also died after one year when Muhammad was six years old. Henceforward, Abdul Muttalib was both mother and father to the orphaned child Muhammad. But this was not to be for long either. The old man Abdul Muttalib grand father of Muhammad died when Muhammad was eight. The dying Abdul Muttalib had already consigned the guardianship of Muhammad to his son, Abu Talib. Since then Muhammad went to live with his uncle Abu Talib. Abu Talib was a business man and suffering from epilepsy. Muhammad never learned to read or write. Muhammad was helping his uncle in his business from his child hood from driving camel to taking care of them etc and developed skill of business from child hood. When he was 12, he visited Syria and had his first exposure to Jews and Christians i.e. the north in Medina and to the south in Nejran. At the age of 25 he worked as a camel driver for a rich widow, Khadijah so Muhammad was hired to manage the business of a wealthy widow Khadija who was 15 years older than Muhammad and went to Syria and traded there successfully. Apparently this impressed Khadijah. She ended up proposing to Muhammad later and in 595 they were married. At time of marriage Muhammad was 25 and Khadijah was 40. The marriage lasted for 25 years and was a happy one. Muhammad relied upon Khadija in many ways and did not enter into marriage with another woman during this marriage. Around 35 years of age he discontented with life in Mecca, he retreated to a cave in the surrounding mountains for meditation and reflection. At some point Muhammad adopted the practice of meditating alone for several weeks every year in that cave on Mount Hira near Mecca. During one of his visits to Mount Hira, the angel Gabriel appeared to him in the year 610 AD and commanded Muhammad to recite the following verses:
Proclaim! (Or read!) In the name of thy Lord and Cherisher, Who created- Created man, out of a (mere) clot of congealed blood: Proclaim! And thy Lord is Most Bountiful, – He Who taught (the use of) the pen, – Taught man that which he knew not. (Qur’an 96:1-5)
According to some traditions, upon receiving his first revelations Muhammad was deeply distressed. When returned home, Muhammad was consoled and reassured by his wife, Khadijah and her Christian cousin, Waraqah ibn Nawfal. In these encounters with the angel Gabriel, sometimes he would see the angel, other times he would only hear him, and at others he only heard the sound of a bell through which the words of the angel came. Muhammad could neither read nor write so he was instructed to memorize the words given to him by Angle Gabriel. This complete recitation became the Qur’an so Qur’an was revealed from God to Muhammad orally through the angel Jibrīl (Gabriel) over a period of approximately twenty-three years, beginning in 610 AD, when he was forty, and concluding in 632 AD with his death.[Here was the important turning point of Muhammad’s life and suspects to his mental health. According to science if some body hear or see an imaginary or known invisible identity which is visible to him only and not by others it’s a mental sickness and suffering from Schizophrenia. There is no evidence Angle Gabriel really exists. It exists in fantasy or imaginations and was created before Muhammad by other schizophrenic patients in other religions. Here it might be possible Muhammad either tried to implement his own experiences of religion which were mostly derived from native polytheisms, knowledge of monotheism from Judaism and Christianity during his business travels which were active religion at that time in the name of Allah’s messenger Angle Gabriel or might be Schizophrenic. Motive was so simple that implementing and establishing his own belief of God i.e. one faith empire in the name of Monotheistic Religion by hook or Crook as far as possible to Arabian peninsula and its neighbor kingdoms creating a one community one God feelings for his own empire of belief through belief of God].Three years after this event Muhammad started preaching these revelations publicly in Mecca, proclaiming that “God is one”, that complete “surrender” to Him is the only way acceptable to God, and that he himself was a prophet and messenger of God. The religion named as Islam and followers are named Muslims. Muhammad earned the enmity of his tribe by claiming the shrine for the new religion of Islam that he preached. He wanted the Ka’aba to be dedicated to the worship of the one God alone, and all the idols evicted. First believers were members from his family and reliable friends; first convertee was Muhammad’s first wife Khadijah and the first male to accept his message was his cousin and son-in-law Ali (Alī ibn Abī Ṭālib) who dedicated his life to the cause of Islam. But Most of the Mecca people disbelieve him because they were believe in different religions and mostly believed in Deities in Kaaba and therefore it was hard task for him to implement his revelation to the Mecca people. Most of his followers and himself Muhammad was badly treated in Mecca. Muhammad was protected by his worthy wife Khadijah and Uncle Abu Talib. In his first three years of proclaiming Islam, he had only 40 converts including his wives, cousins, son in law and friends like Abu Bakr and adopted son Zaid ibn Haritha. Though his continued preaching brought only a few converts, it did bring much opposition. The ruling tribe, the Quraysh, tried to get Muhammad to stop his preaching by appealing to his uncle, Abu Talib. But, Muhammad adamantly refused to stop proclaiming the message he had received. Because Abu Talib was very influential in the Quraysh, Muhammad’s life was protected and he was able to continue his preaching — which angered many people. The Quraysh began to persecute the Muslims by beating them and boycotting their businesses. Often times, during public prayers, Muhammad was accosted and mocked. His followers were likewise treated poorly. Tradition records at great length the persecution and ill-treatment of Muhammad and his followers. Sumayya bint Khubbat, a slave of Abū Jahl and a prominent Meccan leader, is famous as the first martyr of Islam; she was killed by her master when she refused to give up her faith. Bilal, another Muslim slave, suffered torture at the hands of Umayya ibn khalaf by placing a heavy rock on his chest to force his conversion. Muhammad himself was under the protection of Abu Talib, the head of the clan of Banu Hashim. Therefore, nobody had attacked him directly. However, the leaders of Makhzum and Abd Shams, two important clans of Quraysh, declared a public boycott against the clan of Banu Hashim, their commercial rival, in order to put pressure on the clan. The boycott lasted for three years. In 615, some of Muhammad’s followers emigrated to the Abyssinia (Ethiopia) Kingdom, Aksum. They founded a small colony there under the protection of the Christian Ethiopian king. It is not clear if this Hijra was due to persecution, or reflected a split in Islam or a desire to found new colonies. More converts joined his ranks and more idolaters sought to defeat him. This is because the message of Islam was socio-political. Islam covers belief, society, behavior, ethics, etc. This monotheistic belief system threatened the lucrative business that grew around the pilgrimages to the Kaaba that so many Arabs enjoyed. The ruling tribe, the Quraysh, soon found that within their reign a small band of believers. The ruling party became more and more concerned and feeling threatened by the Muslims; they became more hostile towards Muhammad. In 619, both Muhammad’s wife Khadijah and his uncle Abu Talib died; his beloved uncle Abu Talib who never became a Muslim. Relations between Muhammad’s followers and Muhammad’s own Quraysh tribe, worsened. Muhammad then tried to establish himself in Ta’if a city in the Mecca, but this failed and Muhammad had to return to Mecca. After the death of Khadijah, it was suggested to Muhammad by Khawla bint Hakim that he should marry Sawda bint Zama, a Muslim widow, or Aisha, daughter of Um Ruman and Abu Bakr of Mecca. Muhammad is said to have asked her to arrange for him to marry both. Traditional sources dictate that Aisha was six years old when betrothed to Muhammad but the marriage was not consummated until she was eight or nine years old when Muhammad was at its 52. Later, Muhammad married additional wives. Aisha, who became known as Muhammad’s favorite. Muhammad’s situation was bad and there was no support from his own Quraysh tribe because it had been lost with the death of Khadijah and Abu Talib and his life and his little community was badly threatened. But in this time a turning point come to his life i.e. there was a tribal deputes in Yathrib (Medina). And they were seeking a middle man to solve disputes in their tribes and this was the Muhammad’s fate come true to success his goal. So to escape growing persecution, Muhammad and his followers migrated to Yathrib (Medina) in the year 622 CE. Muhammad had been invited there by Jewish and other tribes to adjudicate their disputes. Muhammad became a mediator, arbitrating disputes between tribes. This event, the Hijra, marks the beginning of the Islamic calendar, and Muslim years are designated A.H. (AH stands for the Latin Anno Hegirae (Hijri/Hijra year)), after the Hijra. In Medina, Muhammad united the warring tribes for a while. Again some historians claims the Hijra was the migration of Muhammad and his followers from Mecca to Medina in 622 CE i.e. in September 622 CE, warned of a plot to assassinate him, Muhammad secretly slipped out of Mecca, moving with his followers to Medina, which was 320 kilometres (200 mi) north of Mecca which is well known as the Hijra and is celebrated annually on the first day of the Muslim year. [Here another controversial turning point come to his belief i.e. when he found its not possible to establish his belief to Mecca people by motivations and Mecca’s people will never accept his religion then he found most ultimate controversial concept of “Jihad” means “struggle” i.e. struggle for his religion’s existence in the planet; which is both protecting and implementing his religion, war is not bad! and everything fair in love and war concept accepted by his mind i.e. loving to his own created religion and its establishment; So Jihad is used for an internal struggle to maintain faith, the struggle to improve the Muslim society, or the struggle in a holy war for God. So the command who sacrifice his life in Jihad they will be glorified since its Gods work and is a religious duty of Muslims making Muhammad as warrior Prophet and orthodox followers to holy solders of God (or mujahid, in plural mujahideen means “justice-freers” or “freedom-fighters”). [Here I must tell you sacrificing of life or killing of life in the name of God is foolishness because who cares for your Glorifications? After the death how many days will people remember you? So many have been died from 610 AD to till date; what happen to their glorifications? Does it really matters? Millions and million have been died, how many from them you remembered? Sacrificing life in the name of Allah does really Holiness? Or Foolishness, How can your creator God orders to kill his own creation of peoples for his existence acceptance?] In 622 Mohammed, though recognized as prophet in Medina, had been only one clan chief among nine. Interestingly, Medina had a sizeable Jewish community, which had probably moved there after being expelled from Palestine by the Romans. Muhammad respected the Jews, and his early teachings appeared to borrow from Jewish tradition. The Jews began to distance themselves from Muhammad, however, when he became critical of their not recognizing him as a prophet. Once it was clear the Jews would not accept him, Muhammad began to minimize or eliminate the Jewish influence on his beliefs. For example, he shifted the direction of prayers from Jerusalem to Mecca, made Friday his special day of prayer, and renounced the Jewish dietary laws (except for the prohibition on eating pork). Originally, he said the Arabs were descendants of Abraham through his son Ishmael, but in the Koran Abraham’s connection to the Jews is denied, with Muhammad asserting that Abraham is only the patriarch of Islam, not Judaism as well, because he “surrendered himself to Allah.” Jewish clans in Medina, wealthy but now politically subordinate to the Arab clans, and these made damaging criticisms of Mohammed’s religious teaching and sometimes intrigued with his enemies. On suitable occasions in 622, 624, and 625 he attacked the three main clans and expelled them. In 624, they won the battle of Badr and took much booty. Now secure in Medina, Muhammad expelled the Banu Qaynuqa, one of the three main Jewish tribes, and ordered the assassination of the poetess Asma bint Marwan and then the poet Abu Afak, who had been critical of his rule. Subsequently, after each major battle, Muhammad destroyed a different one of the Jewish tribes that had welcomed him and his followers to Medina. After Uhud, he expelled the Banu Nadir, and following the Battle of the Trench in 627, the Muslims accused the Jews of Banu Qurayza of conspiring with the Meccans. They beheaded the adult male members of the Banu Qurayza, and sole the women and children as slaves. His power and authority grew, however, with the success of the razzias (Muslim raids/military attack) and other expeditions undertaken by the Muslims, especially those against the Meccans. Beyond Medina a system of alliances was gradually built up with the nomadic Arab tribes. As Mohammed grew stronger, he came to insist that those wanting an alliance should become Muslims. The Muslims and the Meccans continued to do battle over the next few years, concluding a truce in 628, the Hudna of Hudaibiyeh. About 6 weeks later Muhammad led his army and attacked the Jews while they were on their way to work on their date palms. Khaibar was a settlement defended by a number of forts spread apart from each other. One by one Muhammad’s army took the forts. Finally, the last few surrendered to him. Muhammad had several of the leaders of the Jewish settlement beheaded, one leader (Kinana) was tortured to reveal where buried treasure was hidden. Then when Kinana was near death, Muhammad commanded that he be beheaded. Many of the women and children were enslaved. Muhammad even took the most beautiful woman for himself and married her (Safiyah). Some of Khaibar’s residents made a deal with Muhammad. Instead of enslaving them, which would leave the rich orchards of Khaibar to go untended and unproductive, the Jews would give Muhammad and the Muslims 1/2 of all of what they produced. Muhammad accepted the deal, with the stipulation that they could be expelled at his slightest whim. Years later, Umar expelled the last remaining Jews from Khaibar. Immediately following the conquest of Khaibar, a Jewish woman, whose family had been wiped out by Muhammad prepared a dinner for Muhammad and some of his men. Unknown to the Muslims was that she had put a poison into the lamb (some say goat) that was served at dinner. Muhammad ate some of the poisoned lamb and become ill. After the conquest of Mecca and the victory at Hunayn in January 630AD, he was the strongest man in Arabia and deputations came from tribes or parts of tribes in eastern, central, and southern Arabia, seeking alliance with him. He destroyed all 360 idols in Kaaba and established one God concept in Kaaba and made it mandatory Allah is only the supreme. At last he succeeds in his goal and for his goal so many had been died; and I must tell you here its Muhammad himself was responsible for the death of these peoples not any God or Allah or Allah’s command, just he used the name of God or Allah to achieve his goal its only the naked truth. He died as a result of poisoned food which was served by Jews women at khaibar on Monday, June 8th, 632 AD. He is buried where he died, which was in Aisha’s (second wife) house and is now housed within the Mosque of the Prophet in the city of Medina. According to some other version by Shaikh al-Habib with logical interpretation Prophet Muhhamad had been killed by poison as a result of conspiracy of his own sweet wife Aisha, her father Abu Bakr, Hafsa and Umar not by Jews. According to Dr. Samie Samson’s reasearch he had even wife before he married to Khadija. When he died he was in effective control of a large part of Arabia, but it is impossible to define exactly the area he ruled, since it’s hard to trace the tribe or local community was the group allied to Mohammed but it was within the Arabian Peninsula. As his decedents Muhammad had four daughters (Ruqayyah bint Muhammad, Umm Kulthum bint Muhammad, Zainab bint Muhammad, Fatimah Zahra) and two sons (Abd-Allah ibn Muhammad and Qasim ibn Muhammad) who both died in childhood. All except two of his daughters, Fatimah and Zainab, died before him. Shi’a scholars contend that Fatimah was Muhammad’s only daughter. Maria al-Qibtiyya bore him a son named Ibrahim ibn Muhammad, but the child died when he was two years old. So there was no male decedent of Muhammad after his death to succeed him. Now question aroused who will succeed him? And take over the leadership of the Muslim nation? The dispute come when Ali ibn Abi Talib (cousin and son in law) claimed leadership for his close family relation with Muhammad and Abu Bakr (Close friend and father in law) claimed Leadership for his close friendship and that the new leader should be elected from among those capable of the job. So dispute in succeeding to Muhammad comprised the two sects of Islam Shia and Sunni. Sunni Muslims agree with the position taken by many of the Prophet’s companions, that the new leader should be elected from among those capable of the job. This is what was done, and the Prophet Muhammad’s close friend and advisor, Abu Bakr, became the first Caliph of the Islamic nation. The word “Sunni” in Arabic comes from a word meaning “one who follows the traditions of the Prophet.” On the other hand, some Muslims share the belief that leadership should have stayed within the Prophet’s own family, among those specifically appointed by him, or among Imams appointed by God Himself. The Shia Muslims believe that following the Prophet Muhammad’s death, leadership should have passed directly to his cousin/son-in-law, Ali. Throughout history, Shia Muslims have not recognized the authority of elected Muslim leaders, choosing instead to follow a line of Imams which they believe have been appointed by the Prophet Muhammad or God Himself. The word “Shia” in Arabic means a group or supportive party of people. The commonly-known term is shortened from the historical “Shia-t-Ali / Shīʻatu ʻAlī “or “the Party of Ali/ the followers of Ali ” They are also known as followers of “Ahl-al-Bayt” or “People of the Household” (of the Prophet). So the political successors (Caliphs) to the messenger of God after the Muhammad were Abu Bakr, Umar ibn al-Khattab, Uthman ibn Affan, and Ali ibn Abi Talib respectively. After the first four caliphs the title was claimed by the Umayyads, the Abbasids, the Fatimids, and the Ottomans. After Muhammad’s death in 632 during his lifetime, the community of Muslims, the ummah (Community of the Muslim Believers/Nation), was established in the Arabian Peninsula by converting (by hook or crook either by belief or by life threat or imposing religious tax pressure) their conquered territories to Islamic territories. And adopted emperors did the same thing to their conquered territories; in this way in the first centuries conversion to Islam followed the rapid growth of the Muslim world under the Rashidun (four Caliphates of Islam) followed by other Caliphs and Islam adopted emperors. So Islam established all these regions and to its people by shine of sword or adoption due to fear of death as alliance and few in beliefs or by motivations due to their ignorance. The decedents of adoptees from that time practicing the beliefs in dedication not even knowing its origination and its authenticity; it’s because the faith rule their mind grievously since it’s stated and embedded in their mind as core level that the faith is direct message of God through Muhammad and its holy and noble and the physical form of the faith is Quran. So you can say it’s only the Quran rules their mind and driving their lives. Muslims has no choice of other religion; conversion by Muslims to another religion (apostasy) carries the death penalty in some country (Like Saudi Arabia) or severe punishment by the community with humiliations in other parts of the world even talking against or authenticity about the Islam is considered to be blasphemy and sin i.e. once adopted/trapped no escape and mentally permanently locked by this belief if tried then death or other punishments are waiting for you, Allah don’t do anything but believers of Allah create punishments and rules in the name of Allah and do all possible crimes in the name of Allah; this is the reason why it’s having a constant growth with their population and now its growth controlled by the birth rate of the believers because it has less history adopted by peoples by their own wills. What a great logic trap created by Islamic founder and believers for their religious belief? Muhammad taught that “Allah loveth not those who reject Faith. Muslims did not rely solely on preaching to spread their faith-they turned also to the sword to conquer vast areas of land in the Middle East and Northern Africa during the seventh and eighth centuries. When they attacked or occupied new territory, they gave its inhabitants three options: convert to Islam, pay a special tax i.e. jizya/jizyah to being a non-Muslim, or die. Under these circumstances some chose to pay the tax, and many others chose to convert to Islam. Now Islam is the world’s second largest religion after Christianity. According to a 2009 demographic study, Islam has 1.13-1.57 billion adherents, making up 17-23% of the world population. Approximately 50 countries are Muslim-majority. Around 62% of the world’s Muslims live in Asia, with over 683 million adherents in such countries as Indonesia (the largest Muslim country by population, home to 15.6% of the world’s Muslims), Pakistan, India, and Bangladesh (all three being successor states to the former British Raj India). About 20% of Muslims live in Arab countries and rest 18% other parts of the world. In the Middle East, the non-Arab countries of Turkey and Iran are the largest Muslim-majority countries; in Africa, Egypt and Nigeria have the most populous Muslim communities. Many Islamic rulers believed that lands of the planet conquered by Muslim armies should be either converted to Islam or be executed. You can explore your regional history how Islam implemented in your region and how people of your country adopted to this religion under which cirumstance for which purpose i.e. native peoples ruled by the foreign belives till to date, where religion is given more importance than Nationality and religional belief is given more importance than humanity.
Conclusion: The story of Muhammad is same as Jesus, and at last religion took his life for testing his divinity or testing his authenticity for being a God’s messenger or not? by a Jews woman at khaibar by poisoning his food. No Angle Gabriel and Allah saved him from the death. When Muhammad realized that he was dying, ceased praying for healing but nothing happened and lastly his followers claimed that Allah had given him a choice to going to Paradise, or living on earth. Muhammad said; he then wanted to go to Paradise. Knowing the game was up; he made the best out of a failed situation and good ending for his glorification. Who is going to check whether he went to hell or heaven? If you want to check then you have to die! Otherwise you have to admit he is in paradise. Allah as a mostly adoptable devine identity had ever existed in Arabic ancient religious culture before the revelation of Islam by Muhammad as a greatest deity in all existed 360 deities in Ka’aba. Allah was the identity of Arabian religious culture not by Muhhamad. Muhhamad only reframed its identity by eleminating other deities by destroying them and used the identity of Allah as an imaginary Identity declining the Idols believe. He combined pre believed Arabian religious culture which was influenced by Indian religious culture with Abrhamic religions i.e. Judaism and Christianity by customization and appendings to frame his own religion and shaped it as Islam. He destroyed the root Arabian Gods or polytheism in his native land and established his own created monotheism for an empire of faith. He and his followers at last did it well after a lot of massacre those opposed his revealed religion. Mostly he established his religion by shine of sword or fear of death or you can say used the psychology of unnatural death phobia to unite an empire of Islamic faith. The way he used is still being used by some of his orthodox believers but world named it as terrorism. This group of people really a threaten or playing big harmful role in both Muslims and non-Muslims groups. Major Muslim groups by faith supports them because they have the same base or origin of faith knowing whatever they do is wrong. For this few orthodox Islamic group whole Islamic group is blamed and threatened. Don’t let a belief rule or control your mind. Life is precious and something meant to mankind, please don’t lose it in the name of God or for faith or belief of same kind. It’s not only a foolishness but also madness. No God will permit taking the life for proofing his existence to destroy his own creations if it really exist; so no religion having any rights to take life in the name of God, if yes it’s a dictatorship and monopoly crimes against the humanity and to mankind in the name of God; How God supports cruelties? If it does then it’s false or fakes God or no God at all. If you think sinners should be punished then it can be without the name of religion or God and there are many ways to punish the sinners. About 23% of our human race, they brand themselves as Islamic believres and still ruled by a faith which had come to existence in 610 AD by Muhammad and there mind is controlled by a scripture named Quran, which they think it’s the supreme. Any deviated mind can exaggerately praise anything as supreme does not mean they are really supreme; which makes not only a blind addiction to that thing but also a blind mania to that things. I diagnosed many theophiliac patients around the world with their adopted faith system; nobody ever said his faith is bad or having some demerits and claimed their religion is supreme to all. What does it mean? Is really all scirptures are supreme? Then why we are having millions problems due to those faiths? No mind comes with any inbuilt belief or faith system and it’s you, that permits to your mind what to do with it i.e. what to believe and what not to believe, therefore your believe does matter to everybody in the human race. Every religions are based on some moral guidances, which are very intoxicant to their followers. Because every people like a safe life without any social contradictions, even some religion provides with their own flavor, but the thing is every faith system comes with their dominant thoughts that it’s the best, which creates a paranoia of super igo by their followers, which is a psychological disorder. With the evolution of any religion some propagators even add some their own selfish bizarre desires in their scriptures saying it’s the command of their scripture and pass to their next generation by corrupting their own followed scriptures, therefore we get many problematic evils in the name sacredness in their scriptures. These three Abrahamic belief (Judaism, Christianity and Islam) have been killed millions and millions life in our human race and had been corrupt the mankind in different ways comparing to its benifits. Please realize and accept the truth and stop these irrationalities and stop being slave to these faiths or thoughts. Block them who use these faiths to slave your mind and controlling your lives making it a business for their selfish purpose or use it as power for their politics and other hidden motives. Spiritual slavery is simply a mental illness. Islam is a religion with a set of beliefs originated only by some humans with the name of Allah which has been edited, appended and scrutinized by their believer’s efforts historically many times. Since beliefs conatins violence and dictaorships philosophy people adopting to this belief system also posses the same; and severity depends upon the depth of the belief in the Islam. Peoples are not bad but being bad when they adopt the irrational belief system of any kind as their fundmental base of belief and follow the irrationalities in their belief system and a guide for routin life in their daily life, so its only in Islam or in their so called Holy Scriptures or Quran not in those innocent human minds those adopts the Islam. No men born with any religion beliefs of any kind. Islam also not inbulid beliefs system by their adoptees or followers, so when they get this belief system, its either by adoption of anykind or inhertance acceptance as their fundamental belief system for their art of living; that only change the mind and living style of those adoptees. As I said all religions teaches some good moral values as common; that are not having any contradictions can be followed without any brandings. So its clear proof of only belief does matter as the root cause of some social evils. Kill the irrational beliefs in our human race, many things will be automatically OK and will be fine in our human race. Don’t care to religions as a fundamentalist or give any special importance saying it as a relic, and just respect it as our ancestors’ art of living system which gives us some good knowledge and nothing more than that. In a rational view theophilac’s imaginary identity God Allah is not good or bad but the way we believe is really bad.
