God never gave any command to Adam, Noah, Abraham, Moses, David, Solomon, John the Baptist, or any of the prophets to WEAR A WHITE CLOTH AND CIRCUMAMBULATE A BLACK STONE.
I could go on and on but it is obvious that Jesus, whom Muslims say is one of the greatest prophets and whom they claim to love and obey, never said to do any of these things either.
The question is where did these Islamic rituals originate from and when did they come into Islam?
The answer: from the Sabians.
WHO ARE THE SABIANS?
The Sabians were a pagan cult group from the 2nd century AD that worshipped the moon god. Muhammad was greatly influenced by the Sabians that he even names them in the quran as being acceptable by Allah! (2:62)
According to Dr. Rafat Amari, in “Occultism in the Family of Muhammad”, Waraqa was an important leader for the Sabians.
Yes, THAT Waraqa! Khatijah’s cousin, who convinced Muhammad that he was a prophet! Now we understand how Muhammad was influenced in the early days!
Ibn al-Nadim wrote in his book, “al-Fahrisit”, about various religious sects in the Middle East. He says in the month in which the [Sabians] fasted for thirty days, they honored the god Sin, which is the moon.
They observed the festivals of Fitr (breaking the fast at the end of the month) and Hilal (new moon), in such a way that the festival of Fitr occurred when the sun entered Aries. And they used to honor the House of Mecca (Kaabah).
According to Dr. Rafat Amari, the Sabians look toward Yemen and pray 5 times a day.
Muhammad simply picked up these pagan rituals and adapted them to his new religion while claiming they were instructions from Allah.
Even the shahadah was plagiarized from the Sabians.
Islamic scholar Abd al-Rahman Ibn Zayd wrote in the 8th century AD: The polytheists used to say of the prophet and his companions, “These are the Sabians,” comparing them to them, because the Sabians who live in Jaziartal-Mawsil (i.e., Iraq) would say “La ilaha ila Allah.”

sabaean are mystery most believe them they are yemenis who rule by queen saba wife of prophet solomon alaihisalam.we found Yemen was converted to Judaism and also Christianised by king negus of Ethiopia.because they have historically monotheistic.what do you call middle Eastern Muslim scholar said is not approved by secular historian.history record of mandean who advant of Islam name themselves as sabaean to be safe.there another sabaean believed to worship star but Arab didn’t find them in Mecca Medina they were complete unknown to Muslim Jew Christian at that period.we Muslim fast one day first it was the 1st Muharram after that we are ordered to fast one month like jesus fast 40days.jew also fast following moon calendar.eid up fitr is for celebrate the day of complete fast because Arab muslim have no festival celebration they celebrate nauroj why was forbidden for pagan origin.
you selectively quote some anti Islamic source to wreak Islamic faith.in Mecca there no sabaean or Jew and in Medina there Jew but no Christian or sabaean.we believe books of two hadith book sahi Muslim sahi Bukhara .
You claim there were no Sabeans. Well, either you are right or Allah is right. You can make your choice.
According to Sura 2:62…
“Indeed, those who believed and those who were Jews or Christians or Sabeans [before Prophet Muhammad] – those [among them] who believed in Allah and the Last Day and did righteousness – will have their reward with their Lord, and no fear will there be concerning them, nor will they grieve.”
Where did christaains get the dove symbol from rread the article divinr symbolism of the DOVE bibical archeology in review points out in the iron age the pre isrealite god yahweh was married to the godist asura. And her symbol was the dove. In the bible judges ch 3 it says the isrealites worshiped tje cananite gods. The arecheologist found DOVE Cote on the temples. The new testament SAYS the holy spirt came down in tje form of a dove
False premise. No where are Christians commanded to use the dove as a religious symbol.
You claim in Judges 3, the Israelites worshiped canaanite gods. Yes. So?
The same chapter repeatedly says: “So the Israelites did evil in the sight of the LORD.”
read the tafsir of Ibn Kathir in arabic.
Salmani Faris who was a Sabi meet muhammed.
islam is all about lies
Muslims are so carnal, always having an erroneous notion of who God is. God does not get married. Allah does like the Houris in lustful heaven. No the TRUE LIVING GOD. God is not the pagan idol Allah from the Kabaa. God called himself YHWH, and HE explicitly said that was HIS name for ETERNITY. ALlah was a YEMENI SABIAN MOON IDOL, ADORED PREISLAMICALLY BY MUHAMMED ANCESTORS, his father (Abdullah) and the cousin of Jadiya who were the ones who came up with revelations, plagiarizing from heretic Christian and Jews books, and borrowing rituals from Zoroastrian and Sabian pagan cults. That is Islam: it has nothing to do with Christianity and the Jews. Waraka/Jadiya/Muhammed included them in the unholy Qur’aan to give it standing as an Abraham faith, which it CLEARLY is not.
Leave Islam, ASAP. IT IS A CARNAL, LUSTFUL DEMON WORSHIP CLOAKED AS A PIOUS, PEASEFULL AND CONSERVATIVE RELIGION. ONCE YPU READ THE QURAAN, THEN ONE KNOWS THAT IT IS REPETITIVE BRAINWASHING AND FEAR MONGERING. ONCE YOU ARE IN, THEY ONLY LET YOU OUT BY KILLING YOU.
JESUS IS KING. MAY MUSLIMS READ THE NEW TESTAMENT AT LEAST ONCE TO REALLY FEEL THE WORD OF GOD, WHICH THEN THEY CAN COMPARE TO THE DESOLATION OF ISLAM: CULTIST NONMUSLIM HATE, PEDOPHILIC PRACTICES, ADULTEROUS/FORNICATION (NICAH MUTTA, JIHAD, HALALA), MISOGYNY, VIOLENCE, HUMILLIATION OF CHRISTIANS, JEW HATRED, NONINTEGRATION INTO SOCIETY FORMING PARALLEL SOCIETIES AND NO GO ZONES, ETC, ETC.
Yes total lie, xtian always lie, if they dont lie, so they are not a missionary of xtian pagan worshiper idol worshipper man god. Muslim and jews can pray in mosque, but xtian cant, think that why
What do you mean by Christians cant pray in mosque?
Christians can pray anywhere. Facing any direction. God is omnipresent.
You have to pray facing the kaabah which was the centre of idol worship during Muhammad’s time.
Please think seriously about this.
