Extract from:  Prophet of Doom

 

Qusai ibn Kilab ibn Murrah, Muhammad’s great, great, great grandfather, invented the 5 pillars of Islam as a mystic scam. On their own merits, the Ka’aba, Mecca, and Quraysh would be among the least important places and people on earth, for the world is awash in illiterate pagans, mud huts, and rock shrines. But as a result of Qusayy’s ingenuity and Muhammad’s bravado, they would become the raison d’etre of Islam. Mecca, the Ka’aba, and its Black Stone, would ultimately become freedom’s most fierce adversaries.

 

Muhammad, Allah’s Messenger, stole Islam from Qusayy’s heirs.

 

If the Islamic scripture is even partially accurate, Allah and the Ka’aba predated Muhammad by five generations. He didn’t invent them. Nor did he conceive the pagan rituals, fairs, holy months, fasts, prostrations, taxes, and pilgrimages that made these things worth owning. … The Bible was corrupted to give Allah, the Ka’aba, Mecca, and Islam’s pagan rites a religious veneer. … To appreciate Islam for what it really is, we must first understand Muhammad’s motivation for deriving a new monotheistic doctrine from an old assemblage of pagan idols. We must come to know why Islam’s prophet incorporated his people’s crude rites into his new religion. In that his revelations were less than inspired, there must have been something that inspired him to promote a stone.

 

Muhammad and his fellow Meccans worshipped rocks. … The most interesting stones became gods. Most had personal names. The biggest rock, thereby the biggest god of the Ka’aba, was Allah. His oval stone was a dark reddish-brown. But Allah was a fractured deity. With time and abuse he had been splintered into seven chips, all banded together. … the pieces are rather small; combined they are only 11 by 15 inches. Today, the chips are imbedded in the south-eastern corner of the Ka’aba, 4 feet above the ground. But Allah is no ordinary assemblage of minerals. He, like fellow Islamic god, Ar-Rahman, had a pre-Islamic past.

 

Stone cults were neither uncommon nor uncivilized. Even the Greeks were wont to worship stones. Apollo was once believed to be a meteorite in Delphi. His sanctuary was thought to be the center of the earth. Robert Charroux, in Masters of the World , explained, Helenius, the son of Priam and a famous Greek soothsayer, could foretell the future by means of a stone that had been given to him by Apollo. To obtain the oracle of the gods, he shook the stone above his head and recited the incantations. The stone then spoke in a strange, faint voice and announced the future. And so it would be; a millennia later Muhammad would heed the summons of another talking stone.

 

But the Black Stone and its House were hardly unique. There were many such temples, called tawaghits, scattered across Arabia. Patrons made sacrifices and left gifts to their stone of choice, prostrated themselves in prayer, and circumambulated the shrines. Most commanded hajj and umrah pilgrimages during holy months. Those seeking the rock’s blessing would commonly rub themselves against the stone and kiss it reverently.

 

The Islamic scripture agrees:

  • Ishaq:38Every house had an idol which they worshiped. They would rub the stone for good luck. When Allah sent Muhammad with the message of monotheism, the Quraysh said: ‘Would he make many gods into one god? This is a strange thing.

 

 Unfortunately for Islam, many false gods do not one true god make.

  • Ishaq:38Now along with the Ka’aba, the Arabs had adopted Tawaghits, temples they venerated like the Ka’aba. They, too, had their custodians. They used to circumambulate them.

 

According to the Islamic scriptures, Allah was one of many pagan rock idols, the Ka’aba was one of many pagan rock shrines. Islamic circumambulation was one of many pagan rites.

  • Ishaq:38 – Al-Lat was in a Tawaghit Temple in Fa’if which was venerated like the Ka’aba.
  • Ishaq:38Luhayy put Al-Uzza in a Nakhla Tawaghit. When they had finished their Ka’aba Hajj they circumambulated Al-Uzza. The Quraysh worshiped her. Manat was worshiped by the Aus and Khazraj in Yathrib.
  • Ishaq:39Those who prayed to Al-Uzza and Manat, shaved their heads and completed all of the rites associated with the Hajj.

 

Yet these men were pagans. How did their rituals become part of Islam and why?

 

Muslims are compelled to observe the same rituals today. The Black Stone, its House, the prostration, kissing, circumambulation, shaving, the hajj, umrah, and holy months somehow migrated from a pagan past to orthodox Islam by way of corrupted Jewish scriptures. The most telling of these tales is the one in which Muhammad and Allah claimed that Abraham smashed lesser idols so that his people might turn to the largest one.

 

A quartz god was worshiped in Tabhalah, an oasis town 7 days journey from Mecca. Sad was the rock deity in the region of Juddah along the Red Sea, west of Mecca.

  • Ishaq:39Many Arabs served an idol named Dhu’l-Khalasa. Himyar had a temple called Ri’am. Ruda was the temple of the Banu Rabi’a. Dhu’l-Ka’abat belonged to the Banu Bakr. Bahira was the filly of the Sa’iba. Hami was their stallion. Wasila was a ewe. Muhammad said, ‘Allah has not made Bahira, Wasila, or Hami. And those who do not agree invent lies.’

 

The Azds and Nabateans bowed to Dhu’l-al-Shara in his shrine in Petra. …. Like Allah, Dhu’l-al-Shara was a reddish brown rock. Fellow moon gods could be found in Marib, Hureidha, and Tayma. Il Umquh was the Sabean moon god in Marib. In Hureidha, the god was Sin, named after the famous moon god of the Chaldeans in Ur. The last Babylonian king, Nabonidus, built an elaborate tawaghit in Tayma to his moon god while in exile. The moon god of Mecca, Allah, lived … in the heart of moon god country.

  • Bukhari:V6B60N374We were in the Prophet’s company in the middle of the lunar month. He looked at the moon and said, ‘You will see your Lord as you see this moon.’

 

This reverence to the moon was hardly a flight of fancy. In the 8th chapter of Judges, there’s a 3,000 year old Bible reference: The Ishmaelites hung crescent moon ornaments from their camel’s necks. … Even in his neighborhood, Allah had competition. The sun god Manaf was worshiped by the Quraysh, as was Hubal, a handsome idol carved into the shape of a man.

 

Allah’s daughters, Al-Uzza, Al-Lat, and Manat, being chips off the old block, were stones. Manat was symbolized by a darkened moon, eerily reminiscent of Islam today. She was the goddess of fate and commanded her subjects to shave their heads when approaching her. Being a good pagan, when Muhammad fulfilled his umrah pilgrimage in Mecca, he shaved his head in Manat’s presence. This pagan practice was invested with godly overtones when Muhammad insisted that Abraham had done likewise. Later, Muhammad honored the pagan goddess Manat by incorporating predestination into Islam and by using her insignia as the logo of his new religion.

 

Not to be outdone, Al-Lat had her own shrine in Ta’if, near Mecca. A cubic rock, she lived on barley porridge. While her diet was humble, her veneration was not. Her temple lies under the left minaret of the early Islamic mosque of Ta’if. Al-Lat’s sister, the goddess Al-Uzza, was considerably younger and lived in the Hurad valley. A Quraysh favorite, she received the most lavish gifts and sacrifices. Muhammad saw her as a nude black woman.

 

Interestingly enough, Islam itself was nearly sacrificed at the altar of Allah’s three little girls. In a weaker moment the prophet said that the goddesses Al-Lat, Al-Uzza, and Manat were conduits to Allah, intermediaries.  But then when the monotheistic wing of his religion objected to 4 pagan gods being 3 too many, the prophet confessed that he had been inspired by Satan [Qur’an 53:19-21] .

 

Although Muhammad is credited with bringing monotheism to Arabs, the Qur’an venerates 3 distinctly different gods. In the first Meccan period, god was nameless. He was referenced solely by the title Lord. This deity was modeled after Zayd’s god, which is not surprising since the Meccan Hanif’s poems formed the basis of Muhammad’s early surahs. The Hanifs derived the title Lord and their faith from the Jews – a people who called their God Lord for fear of saying his name. If they used Yahweh’s name incorrectly, they were accused of blasphemy, and risked being stoned. While their scriptures contained 7,000 repetitions of His name, Rabbis always read and said Lord in its place. Being illiterate, the Meccans wouldn’t have known the difference.

 

But a title was insufficient. The creator of the universe needed a name. All gods had names. So in the 2nd Meccan period, Muhammad called his Lord Ar-Rahman. Inscriptions from the 5th century reveal that Ar-Rahman was worshiped in Yemen by another group of Hanifs. We know about them because Dhu Nuwas, the Jewish Yemeni king, may have been one. …. When he attacked the Abyssinian Christians in Southern Arabia in the early 6th century, he swore by Ar-Rahman, The Merciful, and Ar-Rahim, The Benevolent. An invocation including these god’s names now precedes all but the 9th surah.

 

Muhammad transitioned from Lord to Ar-Rahman in surahs 56, 68, 78, 89, and the last half of surah 93. While none of these mention Allah, Ar-Rahman and Lord are used interchangeably, often side-by-side.

 

The names Ar-Rahman and Ar-Rahim are used 51 times in the Meccan period and twice in the first Medina surah. Then they disappear, replaced by Allah, never to be mentioned again. This is important because surrounded by a veritable sea of pagan idols, all Muhammad did was whittle down the number. … Surah Qur’an 21:36 [states]:

When the unbelievers see you they make fun of you, mocking you, ridiculing you. They say, ‘Is this the one who mentions your gods.’ They would deny all mention of Ar-Rahman!

 

The Qur’an is saying that Muhammad is being teased because he mentions the Meccan gods. Why? Allah was a Meccan god. And if Islam began monotheistic, why was gods plural? Moreover, by having the Meccans deny all mention of Ar-Rahman, two things became apparent: Muhammad’s god was Ar-Rahman and the Meccans’ was not.

 

It is interesting that while the Islamic god doesn’t seem to know his name or if he is one (I, Me, and My in verse 37) or many (We and Us in verse 35), he is the same old guy, showing signs that men don’t heed and making threats.

  • Qur’an 21:37Man is made of haste. I [Ar-Rahman] shall show you My Signs; then you will not ask Me to hasten the punishment! If only the unbelievers could apprehend the moment when they would not be able to ward off the fire from their faces and their backs.’

 

The ‘What’s My Name’ game continued with this Qur’an passage: Qur’an 21:41 – Many apostles have been scoffed before you, but they were caught by what they ridiculed. Say (Muhammad): ‘Who guards you from Ar-Rahman.’ But at the mention of their Lord they turn away. Or do they have lords of their own besides Us who can defend them?’  They turned away because the Meccans knew Allah, not Ar-Rahman.

 

Qur’an surah 25 speaks to the confusion over who the Islamic deity really was. The 59th verse ends with these words: He is the Benevolent. Left untranslated, that says: He is Ar-Rahim. Verse 60 begins with this:

When you say to them: ‘Bow before Ar-Rahman.’ they say: ‘What is Ar-Rahman.’ Should we adore whomever you ask us to? And their aversion increases further.

 

Muhammad was asking the Meccans to prostrate themselves to a god named Ar-Rahman. They, however, rebelled, asking, What is Ar-Rahman? They knew Allah, the top dog of the Ka’aba, but not everyone knew the other fellow as he wasn’t a local rock idol.

 

Verse 25:63 reconfirms that the first Muslims were:

Slaves of Ar-Rahman who walked in submission [Islam]. (The end of this verse is foreboding. It says, When Muslims are addressed by the ignorant they should reply, ‘Peace.’ 

They get away with telling us they’re peaceful  because we are ignorant  of Islam.)

  • Qur’an 13:30 says: We revealed it to you, but they do not believe in Ar-Rahman. Tell them: ‘He is my Lord. There is no other god but He. In Him have I placed my trust.’   

 

Ar-Rahman is not only synonymous with Muhammad’s Lord, Ar-Rahman is his god’s name. Allah was a nobody.

 

Reconciliation between the Islamic gods Ar-Rahman and Allah occurred at the end of the 17th surah which attempts to explain why the Qur’an was being doled out in increments:

  • Qur’an 17:106 We have divided the Qur’an into parts that you may recite it to men slowly, with deliberation. That is why We sent it down by degrees.

 

Actually, specific verses were revealed in direct response to issues in Muhammad’s life. When he wanted to steal, booty was approved. When he wanted to kill, his god approved killing. When he craved incest, his lust was conveniently satisfied. When he wanted more wives than Islam allowed, the Qur’an provided a special dispensation …. And when he wanted to cleanse the world of Jews, his god was accommodating.

  • Qur’an 17:107Say: ‘Believe in it or do not believe: Those who were given knowledge before it bow in adoration when it is read out to them.’ And [they] say: ‘Glory be to our Lord. The promise of our Lord has indeed been fulfilled. And weeping they kneel down and this increases their submission.’ 

 

Not that it’s out of character, but the beginning of this verse is a lie. Those who were given the knowledge before the Qur’an refers to the Torah and Gospels and thus to Christians and Jews. They never bowed in adoration when the Qur’an was read out to them. It couldn’t have been read since it hadn’t been written, and they laughed themselves silly when they heard it, as we do today.

  • Qur’an 17:110 Say: ‘Call Him Allah or call Him Ar-Rahman; whatever the name you call Him, all His names are beautiful. 

 

The name. His names. Allah or Ar-Rahman, or whatever your name might be, confirms the obvious. Neither Allah nor Ar-Rahman are words that mean god; they are names of gods. The Arabic word for god  is Ilah and it’s used throughout the Qur’an.

 

Muhammad learned about the Hanifs and their god, Ar-Rahman, while he was a caravan merchant frequenting Yemen. Maslamah and Zayd, both contemporaries of Muhammad, proclaimed the Hanif doctrine. Maslamah could have been Muhammad’s twin. He taught a strict moral code that prohibited drinking and fornication. He required fasting and formal ritualistic prayers 3 times a day. Maslamah believed in the ‘Day of Resurrection’ and encouraged a hajj. He preached in the same rhymed prose of Muhammad’s Qur’an and even called himself the Messenger of God, saying his revelations came from Ar-Rahman. And whatever Maslamah missed, Zayd covered. His poetic lines made their way into the Qur’an verbatim.

 

While Muslims disparaged Maslamah, calling him the arch liar and false prophet  his style and substance was indistinguishable from Muhammad’s. The foremost American Islamic academician, F.E. Peters, said,

It is difficult to imagine that Maslamah ‘borrowe’. Ar-Rahman from Muhammad… It is easier to assume that Ar-Rahman had a genuine and long-standing cult in Yemen, a cult to which Muhammad may have been drawn.

 

A war was ultimately waged over who was the better prophet. During the War of Compulsion, the battle of Aqrabah was fought between Muslims and Maslamah’s forces. Ar-Rahman’s troops won the first encounter but in the second attack Muslims divided their army to see who could die the most valiantly. 700 of Muhammad’s companions died that day, as did much of the Qur’an. The surahs were stored only in the memories of warriors. The most faithful were now dead and dying in a grove of old trees that became known as the Garden of Death. While the Qur’an suffered a serious blow, Allah’s army carried the day, slaughtering 7,000 Arabs. With their deaths, all opposition to Islam was suppressed in Arabia. Ar-Rahman was forgotten. And so it would be, forever more.

 

Returning to Mecca during the late 5th century, the Khuza’a tribe had ousted the Jurhum clan. As a result, Luhayy came to establish the rites and privileges of the Ka’aba. But he became ill, we are told by Muslim scholar Ibn al-Kalbi, in his Book of Idols .

Luhayy went to a hot spring in Syria to be cured. During his stay he noticed that the locals worshipped idols. ‘What are these things.’ he asked. To which they replied, ‘We pray to them for rain and for victory over enemies.’ Luhayy asked the Syrians for some of their stones. They agreed and he took them back to Mecca where he erected them around the Ka’aba.

 

Luhayy’s fellow tribesmen played along. Everyone got into the mode of worshiping stones, enshrining them, prostrating themselves in prayer, and circumambulating them. Ibn al-Kalbi tells us,

The Arabs were accustomed to offering sacrifices before these idols and stones. Nevertheless they were aware of the excellence and superiority of the Ka’aba to which they went on pilgrimage.

 

Muhammad, however, did not speak so kindly of Luhayy, the first Arab associated with the Ka’aba. He said:

  • Ishaq:35  – I saw Luhayy dragging his intestines in Hell. I asked him about those who lived between his time and my time and he said that they had all perished.

 

Muhammad went on to say,

This led the Meccans to worship stones. Thus generations passed and they forgot their primitive faith and adopted another religion, replacing that of Abraham and Ishmael. They prayed to idols and adopted the same errors as the peoples before them. Yet they held fast to the Ka’aba and circumambulated it, the greater and lesser pilgrimage, the standing place, and the cry: ‘At Your service, O Allah, at Your service.’

 

Muslims reading these words will recognize that the rituals just depicted form the very heart of Islam. Yet Muhammad, Islam’s founder, conceived none of these religious rites. Every Islamic doctrine and ritual existed before the Qur’an, Muhammad, or even the first Muslim graced our world.  As Ishaq has correctly explained, Islam was practiced in all of its glory before the Islamic prophet was born. The practitioners were all pagans and the rites were all directly related to a religious scam – a money making scheme. That’s why, according to Muhammad, they were all damned to drag their intestines through hell.

 

Muhammad’s great, great, great, grandfather Qusayy, capitalized on the work Luhayy had done when he carried idols and stones back to the Meccan shrine. Qusayy, a pagan, an opportunist, and a very creative, albeit twisted fellow, invented every important Islamic ritual and doctrine to gain power and money. Qusayy invented the religious scam Muhammad dusted off and called Islam.

 

All we know about Qusayy and the early Meccans comes from the Hadith and that’s what it says. So, why would Islam tell us something so damaging to Islam? The Qur’an and Hadith make it clear that every Islamic rite was already being practiced by the pagans of Muhammad’s day so they were compelled to provide a reason. The Qur’an makes no effort to explain the nature of prostration or the hajj so the Hadith had to. Moreover, for Muhammad to be a Biblical prophet he had to be connected to Abraham. How is that possible if Muslims don’t first connect him to the most important Meccan? And finally, the whole story of Islam is about Muhammad coveting the Ka’aba Inc. Unless we know who founded it and nurtured the scheme during its entrepreneurial phase, we’ll never understand who is doing what to whom, or why. But as with all things Islam, it’s a two-edged sword. One side cuts through the fog of ignorance; the other kills the ignorant.

  • Ishaq:38 – The Quraysh had a well in the Ka’aba and an idol called Hubal. They adopted Asaf and Na’ila by Zamzam, sacrificing beside them. They were a man and woman of the Jurhum tribe – Asaf ibn Baghy and Na’ila bint Dik – who were guilty of sexual relations in the Ka’aba and so Allah transformed them into two stones. Aisha said, ‘We always heard that Asaf and Na’ila copulated in the Ka’aba so Allah transformed them into stones.’

 

Ishaq says that Luhayy’s Khuzas eventually permitted Kinana’s Quraysh to return to the Ka’aba. The Quraysh, Muslims would have us believe, are direct descendants of Abraham through Ishmael … but this is nonsense. In a desperate grope for legitimacy, they were ever prone to make-believe. Abraham lived around 2000 B.C. 7 centuries would place us in the 14th century B.C., not 5th century A.D. The Ishmaelites are traced to the Sinai, not Arabia. Islam’s justification for promoting Allah and his Ka’aba is all derived from having had it built by Abraham, the great Jewish patriarch, and then having Muhammad being a direct descendant of his son Ishmael. Neither are true. For according to Islam’s own Traditions, the Ka’aba was first ennobled by some stones Luhayy hauled from a Syrian hot spring.

 

 

Ibn Ishaq’s Sira opens with a section entitled: Muhammad’s Pure Descent from Adam.

  • Ishaq: 3This is the book of the Biography of the Apostle of Allah. Muhammad was the son of Abdallah, bin Abdul Muttalib, bin Hashim, bin Abd Manaf, bin Qusayy, and so on a total of 13 generations to Kinana.

 

Ishaq lists another 15 generations back to Abraham and Ishmael. The accounting from Abraham to Noah and ultimately to Adam came directly out of Genesis and is of little value in that we are all descendants of Adam and Noah. However, to apply some simple math to the more recent genealogy shows that the first Muslims were clueless. Qusayy (the founder of the scam that became Islam) preceded Muhammad by approximately 80 years; and Luhayy (the founder of the Ka’aba) preceded Qusayy by the same length of time. Similarly, Kinana could not have been more than 100 years removed from Luhayy which puts us in the early part of the 4th century A.D. To make Muhammad’s genealogy pure, 15 generations would have to span over 2,300 years. Put another way, the Jews who maintained precise written records in their Temple in anticipation of the Messiah, listed 41 generations from Abraham to Yahshua. Another 15 would be required to arrive at Kinana’s time for a total of 56 – nearly 4 times the Islamic number.

 

While this may seem trivial in comparison to sun setting in a muddy spring surrounded by extraterrestrials, it’s not. Islam is completely dependent upon establishing a link between Abraham and the pagan rites practiced around the Ka’aba. If their chronologies are errant by a factor of 400 percent, it does not bode well for the rest of their theory.

 

The earliest Islamic record of Mecca with even a modicum of veracity pertains to the Jurhum. They were alleged to have camped periodically in the valley that later became Mecca. Tabari, the earliest Muslim historian, would have us believe that the Jurhum practiced pagan rites identical to current Islamic rituals in the 5th and 6th centuries A.D.

 

In that this is the first historical  indication of Mecca, its people, and shrine, the Muslims are out by 2500  years. Ishmael was born around 2000 B.C. And there is no tangible evidence to connect the dots between the Biblical character and Mecca, much less with Muhammad, Allah, and the Ka’aba. 25 centuries of historical silence is a very long time – especially for an illiterate people.

 

It was in this muddle of ignorance that Qusayy was about to found a family business and establish himself as Muhammad’s mentor. Islam’s unofficial patriarch was born at the end of the 5th century A.D.:

  • Tabari VI:20 Qusayy asked his mother which tribe he came from. She answered, ‘You are the son of Kilab ibn Murra ibn Ka’b ibn Luhayy ibn Ghalib ibn Fihr ibn Malik ibn al-Nadr ibn Kinana al-Qurashi.’

 

Tabari reports: Your tribe lives in Mecca by the Ka’aba. … This revelation awoke in Qusayy a strong desire to return to Mecca and join his people, the Quraysh. There were no permanent homes, only tents. Flash floods were a menace and the summer heat was unbearable, as there was no shade. People passed through, but no one lived in Mecca.

 

She told her son: ‘Wait for a sacred month and go with the pilgrimage.’ Qusayy waited until the sacred month arrived and the pilgrims set out. When he reached Mecca and had completed the pilgrimage, he remained there. One of the 5 pillars of Islam is to complete: the hajj pilgrimage to Mecca in the sacred month. This Hadith proves that the rite was idolatrous 5 generations BEFORE Muhammad said it was Islamic. Even Muhammad’s names for the pilgrimages,hajj and umrah, were borrowed from his pagan past.

 

The pagan Qusayy, arriving at the tent village, established the model Muhammad would ultimately require Muslims to follow. But that’s not all he did to inspire Islam’s future prophet. Tabari quotes:

  • Ishaq:48At the time Hulayl was in charge of the Ka’aba and ruled in Mecca. Qusayy asked him for the hand of his daughter Hubba in marriage.

 

She was the wealthiest and best-connected woman in town. 5 generations later, Muhammad, abandoned and penniless, would marry Khadija – the wealthiest woman in Mecca. Family tradition.

 

Settling in, the newlyweds made 4 babies, 2 of which were named after the local rock gods, underscoring the fraudulent nature of Muhammad’s religious invention. Hubba bore him Abd al-Dar, Abd Manaf, Abd al-Uzza and Abd. His progeny increased, his wealth multiplied and he became greatly honored. Qusayy showed he was a heathen idolater when he named his kids after rock idols. Yet he performed a pilgrimage to Mecca in a holy month. He moved in with the king, the custodian of the Ka’aba, and married his daughter. They named their first kid Slave-to-the-House – the most important thing in their lives, their source of wealth and power. Then they honored their gods by naming their next 2 children after them.  These passages confirm that the Ka’aba was a pagan shrine and that at best, Allah was just one of many gods. The veneration of the House of idols shows that it was unconnected to any monotheistic religion – Islam included.

 

A Hadith gives us a glimpse of what was to come:

  • Ishaq:49 Qusayy thought he had a better right to the Ka’aba and to rule over Mecca than the Khuza’a since the Quraysh were the most noble and pure descendants of Ishmael. 

 

The motivation for Islam can be condensed into a similar sentence. Muhammad thought he had a better right to the Ka’aba and to rule over Mecca than his family. If you keep this in mind, everything associated with Islam’s formation will make sense.

 

The sages who crafted this Tradition in Baghdad a dozen generations after Qusayy’s death must have thought their audience would remain as ignorant as their religious teachings were preposterous. First, in an illiterate society, how would Qusayy know that he was a more direct descendant of Ishmael than any other Arab? Ishmael had been sandals up for 2,500 years.  Without copious and exacting written records, genealogies are impossible to establish after a handful of generations. Arabic as a written language had yet to be invented, and there were nearly 60 generations separating these men. Second, how could they purport to know what Qusayy thought? There were no written accounts to connect him and his thoughts to the day these Hadith were written – 4 centuries later. Since this scenario is impossible, the only reason Muslim scholars felt compelled to legitimize Qusayy’s right to the Ka’aba and rule over Mecca, was to justify his great, great, great grandson’s claim.

  • Tabari VI:20He called upon his fellow tribesmen, the Quraysh, to expel the Khuza’a and seize Mecca for themselves. They accepted his proposal and swore an oath of allegiance to him.

 

While I’m stunned the world hasn’t exposed the scam that became Islam, I am grateful that the Islamic scripture makes it so easy. Muhammad would do precisely the same thing. He called upon his raiders to conquer the Quraysh and seized control of the town. They accepted his proposal and swore oaths of allegiance to him. While we will cover these pledges later, suffice it to say for now, like Qusayy’s oath, it was a call to arms. And as with Muhammad, the Meccans were the enemy, and the target was the Ka’aba.

 

Tabari, relying on Traditions collected by Ishaq, reports:

The Arabs, recognizing their religious duty, accompanied Qusayy. Marching to the Ka’aba they said, ‘We have better right to this than you.’ At that they opposed one another and began to fight. A fierce battle broke out, as a result of which…Qusayy wrested from them the privileges which had been in their hands, thus denying them.  

 

 

Little did they know how fraught with portent these words would be – they haunt us to this day.

 

The alternate peaceful version:

  • Tabari VI:21 Qusayy purchased the custodianship of the Ka’aba for a skin full of wine and a lute. 

 

While this variant earns kudos for non-violence, it’s hardly religious. Purchasing the shrine that stands at the center of Islamic life, their god’s house, for things their religion outlaws – music and booze – is laughably ironic. It’s also an example of conflicting truths. Proving that Islam has something for everybody, Ishaq serves up alternative 3. This one foreshadows Islamic terrorists today and their willingness to use biological agents. I have heard, and Allah knows best, that the Khuza’a were seized by an outbreak of pustules which nearly wiped them out. They abandoned Mecca.

 

Making sure he had all his bases covered, Ishaq provided a 4th alternative. This one was for the doves, those who would use the peace process to steal that which they covet.

  • Ishaq:52 – Both sides called for peace and for the appointment of one of the Arabs to arbitrate between them on their differences.

 

This was evidently the model Jimmy Carter used to win the Nobel Peace Prize. All the spoils went to the Muslims. The infidels traded their land and money and got nothing in return. The verdict was that Qusayy [read Arabs or Muslims] had a better claim to the Ka’aba [read Temple Mount] and to rule Mecca [read Jerusalem] than the Khuza’a [read the Jews]. All the injuries inflicted and blood shed by Qusayy [read suicide bombers or Arab armies] upon the Khuza’a [read the Jews] were cancelled and disregarded [read forgotten, excused, or justified], while all injuries inflicted by the Khuza’a [the Jews] upon the Quraysh [read Muslims or Arabs] should be compensated for by blood money [read Carter committed the United States to paying the Arabs who lost the Six-Day War $2 billion a year in perpetuity]. He added that Qusayy should be given a free hand to control the Ka’aba and Mecca. Nothing has changed. Diplomacy with Islamic tyrants remains equally unbalanced and equally futile.

 

Whether Qusayy prevailed by force, bribe, the peace process, or pestilence, he gained control of the tent village and rock shrine that had been populated by the patriarch’s great, great, grandfather, Luhayy. Ibn Ishaq chronicled the momentous event as only a Muslim could.

  • Ishaq:52 Thus Qusayy gained authority over the Ka’aba and the lordship over the people of Mecca. He behaved like a king over his tribe so they made him a king.

 

Qusayy, having established the model for Muhammad, went on to build the family business. Let’s listen to how it was done:

  • Ishaq:53 – Qusayy assumed control and kingship. He was obeyed. He held the keys to the shrine, being the doorkeeper of the Ka’aba. He held the right to water the pilgrims from the well of Zamzam and to feed them. He presided at the assemblies and held the right to hand out the war banners. In his hands lay all the dignities of Mecca, all of which he took for himself.

 

THIS IS THE ESSENCE OF ISLAM. Muhamad would speak these same words upon his conquest of Mecca.

 

Then Qusayy established the model Muhammad would follow in Yathrib when he expelled the Jews from their homes by force, and he rewarded his fellow Muslims by dividing their property between them. He also divided the property in Mecca among his followers, settling every clan of the Quraysh in the dwelling places assigned to them. No issue regarding public affairs was decided nor was any banner of war entrusted without Qusayy’s permission. Scores of years later, Muhammad would use force to gain control over Medina, Mecca, the Ka’aba, its god, its dwellings, its well, pilgrims, assemblies, and even the disposition of war banners. He behaved like a king, forcing his will on his tribe, killing anyone who got in his way. While these Hadiths prove that Muhammad wasn’t the least bit inventive, he has to be given credit for recognizing a workable plan and executing it. The pagan Qusayy, a charlatan, nourished every important aspect of Islam generations BEFORE Muhammad was born. Moreover, he, like the prophet, did it in pursuit of sex, power, and money.

 

The Tradition concludes with these haunting words, words that became prophetic.

  • Tabari VI:24/Ishaq:53 – Qusayy’s authority among the Quraysh during his lifetime and after his death was like a religion which the people followed and which could not be infringed; they always acted in accordance with its laws. They regarded it as filled with good omens and recognized his superiority and nobility…. He took for himself the assembly house which led from it to the mosque (place of prostration) of the Ka’aba.

 

Muhammad would do the same in Medina. He took for himself an assembly house which led to the mosque where all Islamic affairs were decided. And like Qusayy, Muhammad took upon himself the honor of handing out war banners before each of the 75 terrorist raids he orchestrated.

When they were about to fight another tribe, banners were tied only in his house, where one of his own sons would hand them out.

 

Ishaq knew the troubling ramifications of what he had just revealed. If this were true it meant that a heathen had founded the religious scam Muhammad shaped into Islam. He recognized, as you and I do, that Muhammad’s reliance on Biblical characters to legitimize Islamic rituals and pillars was as feeble as it was preposterous. The 10 tests of Abraham were perverse philosophically, the fables of Nimrod were lunacy historically, and the pure descent from Ishmael was grossly improbable genealogically. With the Jewish connection in rubble, the Hadith portrayal of Qusayy obliterated Arab and Meccan credibility. As such, Ishaq sought out an ally to corroborate his account, choosing the second Caliph.

  • Ishaq:53 Umar confirmed the story of Qusayy and how he gained control of the Ka’aba and the affairs of Mecca.

 

The Hadith is incriminating, unraveling the fabric of Islam. More than a hundred years before the first Qur’anic revelation fell from Muhammad’s lips, the pillars of Islam had been established by a pagan entrepreneur. The Ka’aba was the center of a new idolatrous religion; a scam designed to enrich its lone, undisputed, and unchallenged king – a man who used religion for political and personal gain. With methods identical to Muhammad’s, Qusayy took control through jihad and political covenants. He was purported to have nobility and superiority as he established religious doctrine; he was a messenger to be obeyed. The prostration had been established, as had the place of worship – the mosque. The hajj, down to the most minute rites, had been enshrined in the religious lore. There was even a holy month. All that was needed now was for a religious tax to be implemented and for Allah to be promoted from among the quarry of rock idols for the pillars to be complete. If these final ingredients manifest themselves before we leave the 5th century, Islam will be laid bare-naked to the world of reason – exposed as the scam of Qusayy, not the religion of Abraham, and most certainly not the revelation of Allah.

 

There is no chance these pagan doctrines could have been derived from Abraham. There is no way to pass such rites across the 2 dozen centuries that separate the real Islamic patriarch, Qusayy, from the patriarch of the Jews. There are no writings, no carvings, no scrolls, no scriptures, no recorded histories, and no archeology. There isn’t even a hint of Mecca existing during this awesome void of time.  And thus there aren’t any people through whom these religious duties could have been conveyed.  As such, the pillars were established upon the rocky ground of a pagan religious scam. You are witnessing the birth of Islam.

 

Muslims say it isn’t so – that it can’t be so – because if it were, their religion would be nothing more than regurgitated paganism – a twisted plot. They claim Abraham came to Mecca to build the Ka’aba and establish Islamic rites, but they omit how he could have survived the desert crossing with a maid and an infant. They don’t say why he would have left the Promised Land for a deserted valley in the middle of nowhere. Islam isn’t the religion of Abraham or the doctrine of the prophet Muhammad. It is the religion of Qusayy.

 

As is the case with all humankind, Qusayy’s wealth didn’t buy him a reprieve from family squabbles or the grim reaper. Abd al-Dar failed to serve in the capacity for which he had been named. Abd al-Uzza and Abd grabbed the keys to the kingdom. They became the beneficiaries of the religious tax. No one, we are told, would be able to eat, drink, fight, worship, or decide any matter without their express written permission. Okay, verbal permission. They were illiterate.

 

Each of Qusayy’s sons considered himself more worthy than the others. Civil strife broke out between the Scented Ones and the Confederates. In a move that would have made Neville Chamberlain proud, peace was achieved by cutting the baby in half. Watering pilgrims and collecting taxes were controlled by Abd Manaf’s clan. Ka’aba access and waging war went to the family Abd al-Dar. This continued to be the state of affairs in Mecca until an orphan boy with royal heritage coveted it all.

 

The most interesting historical artifact from 6th century Arabia leads us directly to that orphan. It was the Year of the Elephant, which according to Muslim scholars was 570 A.D. It is blazoned into the annals of Islamic history. Not correctly, mind you. It was actually 552, according to archeologists.

The momentous event began with considerable fanfare.

  • Ishaq:4 – Rabi’a of Yemen saw a terrifying vision. So he summoned every soothsayer, sorcerer, omenmonger, and astrologer in his kingdom.

 

These occult types said his dream predicted a Satanic invasion from Africa, one ultimately thwarted by the arrival of a pure prophet (guess who?): By the Serpent of the lava plains, I swear the Ethiopians shall attack …. A pure Prophet to whom revelation will come from on high will bring it to an end. The Devil worshippers professed: An Apostle will bring truth and justice among men of religion and virtue. You just can’t beat a good Satanic endorsement.

 

The soothsayers went on to claim prophetically:

  • Ishaq:5 – It will be his intention to destroy the Jews living among him. In poetic verse they warned: ‘In rage against two Jewish tribes who live in Yathrib who richly deserve the punishment of a fateful day.

 

The Satanic crowd who predicted Jews would be victimized by their prophet, allegedly acquired these quotes from some rabbis:

The approaching army will seek to destroy the temple in Mecca, for we know of no other temple in the land which Allah has chosen for himself. The rabbis told Rabi’a to do what the people of Mecca did: ‘Circumambulate the Ka’aba, to venerate and honor it, to shave his head, and to bow down in humility in its sacred precincts.’ Recognizing the soundness of this advice, the king cut off their hands and feet, and continued on to Mecca.

 

The stubby rabbis are said to have narrated a rather long poem from their sacred books, reciting from the Torah. A few of its lines are intriguing. They correctly defined the Ka’aba for what it really was and for what Muhammad would ultimately do with it:

  • Ishaq:12 – A House of ancient wealth in Mecca. Treasures I wanted to seize.

 

Then they are said to have authored one of the Qur’an’s most embarrassing lines:

Dhu’l-Qarnain[Alexander the Great] before me was a Muslim … with knowledge true. He saw where the sun sinks from view in a pool of mud and fetid slime.’

 

While there is considerable evidence Islam is Satanic, having every soothsayer, sorcerer, omenmonger, and astrologer predict the arrival of  a pure Prophet to whom revelation will come, is more blatant a connection than you’d think their scriptures would admit. They even suggest that the Devil worshippers were right because, as predicted, an African army did invade Yemen. Here’s what Ibn Ishaq has to say about them:

After building a church, Abrahah, an Abyssinian viceroy, led his army north.

 

While the non-Islamic records don’t mention a place as insignificant as Mecca, the Muslim sages allege that Abrahah wanted to conquer their booming metropolis with the express intent of destroying the Ka’aba. They say that the viceroy was bent on luring pre-Islamic Arabs away from idolatry and toward a new Christian cathedral. The very thought of it must have made the rocks of the Ka’aba tremble.

 

Abrahah is said to have arrived on the outskirts of town with an army of sorts. But what made him formidable was his ride. The viceroy was mounted on a mighty elephant. And thus far, although grossly misdated, the story is almost plausible. Abyssinia is today’s Ethiopia, so its viceroy could well have been mounted upon the mightiest of land mammals. What’s not reasonable is that there isn’t enough food or water to sustain an elephant in the Arabian Desert, at least for the beast to be more of an asset than liability.

 

Details aside, the story gets good at this point.

  • Ishaq:26 – Mahmud [the elephant] bowed down whenever it was asked to face Mecca. Then Allah rallied a flock of birds, each carrying a pea-like stone in its beak and in each claw. Everyone who was hit died. 

 

They were instantly dissolved, their flesh falling from their bones. Abraham’s fingers fell off one by one. Naturally proud of his achievement, Allah, with some help from Muhammad, recounted his stirring victory in the Qur’an.

  • Qur’an 105:1Have you not seen how your Lord dealt with the companions of the elephant? Did He not make their treacherous plan go wrong, ending in confusion? He sent against them hordes of flying creatures, pelting them with stones of baked clay. He turned them into stalks of straw devoured. 

 

A Hadith describes the nature of the disease:

Whoever was struck by a pebble started scratching his body, tearing his flesh.

 

History suggests that the Abyssinian brigade was actually done in by smallpox. Even Islam agrees, in effect calling their god a braggadocios liar:

  • Ishaq:27 – Utba told me that he was informed that this year was the first time that measles and small pox had been seen in Arabia. 

 

And while that’s hardly miraculous, the Islamic Tradition affirms a shocking reality. 60 years BEFORE the first Muslim tread the planet, Allah was a pagan god, and the Ka’aba, the center of Islamic worship, was a pagan shrine, giving Allah and his House a history that isn’t the least bit flattering. Desperate to prove Allah was real, Muslims attributed this bizarre tale to their anemic deity. As it turned out, this peculiar story became Allah’s only miracle.

 

When Abdul Muttalib, Muhammad’s grandfather, Meccan king and Ka’aba custodian, heard of the approaching men, he told Allah and his pantheon that they were on their own.

  • Ishaq:24 Allah, you know that we do not wish to fight, for we do not have the ability…. A man protects his house, so You protect Your House. Don’t let their craft overcome Your craft tomorrow…. Deliver up the black barbarians. 

 

Tabari adds:

But if You want to leave and change our qiblah [the direction the Meccan idolaters faced in prayer seventy-five years before Muhammad insisted it was an Islamic requirement], You may do as You please.

 

On his exodus, Muttalib may have said something like, ‘As for me, I’m out of here. I know that the family business is a scam. It’s been nice, but we can always stack a new pile of rocks when the invaders are gone.’

 

Contrary to the Muslim revisionists, pre-Islamic Arabs were lovers, not fighters. Muttalib is alleged to have told the Quraysh, If we offer no resistance, there will be no cause for bloodshed. Knowing that they were out muscled, and being merchants, not militants, the Meccans, at Muttalib’s suggestion, scampered out of town and headed for the hills, letting their gods fend for themselves. This should give us pause because it means that it must have been Islam that turned these pacifists into warriors.

 

Early Muslims, in an effort to commemorate Allah’s magnificent achievement, tell us that Muhammad was born in the Year of the Elephant. They say it is proof he was a prophet. But that’s a problem. If Muhammad was born in 552 A.D., the year history says Abrahah moved north, he would have been 70 years old when he married his favorite wife, the 6 year old Aisha. And if Muslims need to falsify an event to make Muhammad appear prophetic, what does it say about the veracity of their religion?

 

However, there was a ray of hope in Mecca. 4 Arabs had come to recognize that it was high time to stop worshiping stones. The rest of the world had long since gone monotheistic, thanks to the Jews and Christians. These religious leaders, called Hanifs, were natural monotheists.

  • Ishaq:99Waraqa Naufal, Ubaydullah Jahsh, Uthman Huwayrith, and Zayd Amr were of the opinion that their people had corrupted the religion of Abraham, and that the Stone they went around was of no account. ‘It could not hear, nor see, nor hurt, nor help.’ They told their people, ‘Find yourselves a religion, for by God, you have none.’

 

While much of this was encouraging, one line completely destroys Muhammad’s credibility and murders Allah. These Hanifs not only inspired the first score of Qur’anic surahs, they served as Muhammad’s link to the notion that Islam was the religion of Abraham. Yet these men said,

the Stone they went around was of no account. It could not hear, see, hurt, or help. 

 

That Stone was Allah’s.

 

A generation BEFORE Allah’s Messenger stole Islam from Qusayy’s heirs, Arabs in his hometown had figured it out. Their moon rock was no better than moonshine – a source of money and false hope, nothing more.

 

According to Ishaq, Waraqa became a Christian. His credibility will soon be usurped to advance Muhammad’s agenda. Ubaydullah became a Muslim, rejected Islam the following year, and also became a Christian. Uthman became a Christian as well, holding a high office in the Byzantine empire. But… Zayd stayed where he was; he accepted neither Judaism nor Christianity. He abandoned the religion of his people. As we shall learn, Zayd recited poems that formed the basis of the early Qur’anic surahs. Yet on this day:

  • Ishaq:99 Abu Bakr said that he saw Zayd as a very old man leaning his back on the Ka’aba saying, ‘O Quraysh, by Him in whose hand is the soul of Zayd, not one of you follows the religion of Abraham but I. O God, if I only knew how you wished to be worshipped I would so worship you; but I do not know.’ Then he prostrated himself on the palms of his hands. 

 

The implications of this Hadith are devastating to Islam – especially when we witness the similarity and superiority of Zayd’s poetry to that contained in the Qur’an. Although this Hanif’s poems predate the Qur’an, you’ll appreciate them more when they are set in the context of Muhammad’s first revelations.

 

Some say that material stolen from several sources ceases to be plagiarism and becomes research. If that is true, Islam was Muhammad’s research project as he stole it from Qusayy, Zayd, and the Jews.
