Jesus Christ Is Lord

That every knee should bow and every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord to the glory of God the Father!

The Original Name Of The Muslim Moon God: NOT ALLAH!

Posted by Job on October 19, 2007

I am a huge supporter of Messianic (meaning COMPLETED) Jewish rabbi Moshe Laurie and his show, but I must admit that I have not been as motivated to watch it recently because Laurie has been devoting a lot of time to exploring the possibility that the 12th imam of Shi’ite Islam will be the anti-Christ. I really cannot get into that because of my belief that the anti-Christ will have to be an “all things to all people” sort in order to get the world to follow him, and as such his false prophet would likely be a New Age universalist sort.

But I came across something the other day that will make me give rabbi Laurie’s efforts more thought. The book Readings of the Ancient Near East (by Bill Arnold and Bryan Beyer, published by Baker Books) has starting on page 137 the war chronicles of king Tiglath-pileser I of Assyria. Of course, it begins with the usual statements of devotion to this pagan’s gods. Now this fellow’s primary god was Ashur, but I noticed one of the other false deities that he credited for his successful military exploits. Tiglath-pileser I referred to the deity as the wise one, saying that he was the lord of the lunar disk (the moon god) and his symbol was “the divine crescent.” Of course, Islam’s “Allah” has long been known to be the moon god worshiped by the Arab peoples of that region, and as such the crescent moon is their symbol. So, what name did Tiglath-pileser I call this deity, the same false deity as Mohammed’s Allah, in his royal inscriptions? SIN. I kid you not, page 137 of Readings of the Ancient Near East clearly identifies the name of the god of Islam as SIN.

Some background here. When Moses led the children of Israel out of Egypt, God told them not to follow after the worship or practices of the people in the area. Such practices were, of course, pagan. Israel began referring to the pagan practices that God commanded them against as SIN because it was shorthand for the moon worship that was dominant in the area. (Please recall, for instance, that Abraham’s family, from Haran, were moon – worshipers.) That was why the wilderness that the children of Israel spent 40 years wandering in was called the wilderness of Sin Exodus 16:1 (though wilderness of Zin was an alternate spelling)! And the mountain where the law was given? Mount Sinai! Note that there was no reference to God or Moses naming them as such. The wilderness and the mountain already had those names because the local moon worshipers, SIN worshipers, gave it that name, just as places where Baal worship took place were given such names by the pagans as Baalzephon, Baalpeor, Baalmeon, etc. So as one of the first commandments of God regarding their conduct was to refrain Israel from taking on the worship of the Sin cult, sin became shorthand for all evil behavior. (Some folks that are familiar with the scriptures in their original languages claim that the translators often used “sin” where “lawlessness” or similar would have been more appropriate.)

So going back to Moshe Laurie’s teachings that the anti – Christ will be the eschatological figure that the modern moon god worshipers of Shi’ite Islam are awaiting, we cannot ignore that one of the titles given for the anti – Christ in the Bible just happens to be “man of sin“(2 Thessalonians 2:3)! But wait, it does not end at Islam. Lots of other folks do too: wicca and other pagan movements, New Age, some strands of kabbalah, etc. But you know what else? MASONRY, especially the SHRINERS branch. (Hint: Mormonism was founded by the MASON Joseph Smith). Oh yes, did you know that masonry, while claiming to be a Christian fraternal organization, is actually universalistic, teaching that all religions are equal, see ericbarger.com/presbyterian.masonic.htm? (Sort of sounds like Skulls and Bones George W. Bush proclaiming that all religions worship the same god recently, doesn’t it? Fascinating that he made that pronouncement while traveling in Muslim countries. It is also fascinating how many of our presidents have been Masons or members of its affiliated societies.)

So it looks like Moshe Laurie may be onto something. If he is, then this “something” is actually way broader and deeper than he realizes!

  1. Moshe Laurie is a disinformationist!
    Do a little research and see his origins!

    His promotion and hatred for the muslims testify against him. If he believes that muslims and Islam are the enemy, and Moshe is a follower of Yeshua, then he breaks the very basic understanding given by Yeshua…
    “If your enemy is hungry, feed him.”
    Again, by their fruits you shall know them.

    Where in Genesis are Abraham’s relatives described as moon worshipers? Or is that sourced in other ancient literature?

  3. Fran said

    When we study we have to use our tools. Culture,time,places,etc. Abraham lived in Ur. Abraham at that time, he was pagen.From other sources I have read that they were into astrology. This would lead me to beleive that they worshipped objects in the heavens such as moon,sun,stars. But one thing for sure, we know that they didn’t worship God. Remeber the coventant that God made with Abraham,and it was conditional,remember Issac followed God,Ismeal didn”t,and seed from seed on down through genrations chose who they would follow as their God,or gods. Some that chose to follow God and fell back into idolatry, just as today.

    So looking at it this way, for me,I can beleive that it is a true statment. There are references to this in other books in the bible that allow us to see different types of worship.We are the seed of Abraham so would we all not be relatives?

  4. Kevin Neslund said

    Iecho Ken’s thought as well. Where are/is Abraham’s family described as “moon-worshipers”? I’ve yet to locate that area of Scripture. I am going to assume the source is extra-biblical i.e.apocryphal. Anyone please take the liberty to apprise us of this matter.

  5. We are all relatives, and are brothers and sisters. If in my own family, I had a brother that was not a believer, and he went off to worship gods other than our G_d, he would still be my brother. Even if five to ten generations had passed between us, and my children didn’t even know his children, we would all still be family.
    Many of the children of Israel worshipped other gods than that of their fathers before them. It describes how they left the worship of their G_d, for pagan gods, pagan traditions, and the star of their god. Meaning that they too became adulterous against the L_rd of Hosts. And in his mercy, he asks them to call upon him, and to come back to their senses. He brings upon them famine and drought, because those who are rebellious children, often cry to their god, but their god doesn’t bring the rain. If at that point, they do not repent, he brings plague and sword. Surely, they will see that their gods do not save, and will call upon Him then…but many times they instead, seek alliances with other nations for help, and do not seek the only one that can save them. If only they would cry out to him, he would hear, and send the rain and heal their land. He longs for it. He is waiting for it now. It was not just then that they disobeyed, but now too. But they do not call on him, they instead, call on America, Europe and other nations to protect them. Only G_d will protect them and us, and we have to call upon him and forsake all other gods.

    Eden Hadassah; Maybe it is just me, but why does your keyboard/wordprocessor fail whenever you imply that you mean God or Lord (in the respectful fashion of proper nouns), however when you imply anyother “gods” it seems to work fine.

    Also, by way of observation in your initial post you state that “If your enemy is hungry, feed him.” Again, by their fruits you shall know them.”

    I know where you are heading with this and you’re taking it out of context and maybe deceiving other readers about the relationship that exist between Muslims and Jews. There is so much that you have left out. Your utterences are not as indicting as you might have thought; neither my God nor the Bible works quite that way.

    Okay, you have mosterrantly stated what “their G-d wants;” Now tell us something about your religion, your beliefs, and what your G-d wants from you and how you should treat others.

    I’m anxiously waiting to hear

  7. I believe in the G_d of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. I believe in Yeshua, the Son of G_d. My leaving out any vowels has more to do with the respect for my fellow Jewish brothers and sisters, who have not yet discovered that Yeshua is their messiah. I have no problem using vowels in the word God, and when I refer to pagan gods I use full vowels because I have no reverence for them. There is no power in leaving out vowels, it is just a small issue of freedom, that I have in Yeshua, that I choose not to use, so that my brothers and sisters will not become imbittered.
    Don’t you believe in Yeshua’s words? If someone, (with out exception) is believed to be your enemy, don’t you believe that you should do good to them? Didn’t Yeshua say to do good to those who persecute you? I don’t think that those words can be taken out of context. Those who choose to follow after Yeshua, will in fact, show forth the fruit of righteousness by doing good to our enemies. If we attack and harm our enemies, then that fruit is also evident.
    The reason that we are to do good to those who persecute us, and to feed our enemies, is because it shows the mercy and kindness towards others and reflects the heart of G_d. That is at the core of it all. It is G_d who shows mercy, love, forgiveness, grace and kindness even to the wicked. The sun shines on both the righteous and the unrighteous alike. That is a blessing from the L_rd. He provides the good of the earth for all, both to those who love him and to those who don’t. This is what sets him apart from gods in the form of idols. It sets him apart from all leaders, it sets him apart from all those who worship man, and it sets him apart because he alone seeks after the lost, the poor, the widow, the orphan, the alien, the free man and the slave. He alone seeks to comfort them, and to set them free. He alone desires to have relationship, and to fill that place in their lives that no one can fill. It was the reason that he gave his one and only son to be an atoning sacrifice for our sins, for our unrighteousness. It was his good pleasure to raise Yeshua from the dead, and to seat him at the right hand of G_d, his father, now and for ever more. It is for this reason, that we are to feed our enemies, and do good to those who persecute us. Because no student is above his teacher.
    Yeshua has called us friends, and he has commanded us as such, to obey him. Why only love those who love us? He has said to love those who hate us and persecute us, because our reward will be great in Heaven. True?
    I want to be a reflection of my messiah, and a child of the L_rd most High. He deserves all the praise, glory and honor. This is the fruit that I choose to bear.
    As far as muslims and jews are concerned, they are brothers and sisters as well. If you do not believe that, you can look through out the bible and notice the massive family fued that takes place. It can be traced back to Cain and Abel. You can take it through the table of the nations, through Ishmael and Isaac, Esau and Jacob, and so on. In the book of Amos, you can read all about the fued that existed. They are all extended family members. Through Noah, you have Japheth, Shem and Ham. Each created clans and nations. And all have come against each other. Yeshua came to reconcile all to G_d and to each other. That is how much he loves them all. Shem is blessed above all, because through Abraham, Isaac, Jacob and Judah would come the messiah. This was the promise that G_d fulfilled by sending Yeshua. He is the promise, and the blessing to all nations and all generations. We need to reflect that.
    I hope this helps to clarify what I believe.

  8. Bruce said

    I see there is a great deal of questions and information to such. I will always test what is said by man, to what is said in the bible.
    Reconcile and may the Lord our God show you, lead you and bless you friends in His truth.

    Revelation 17…HERE IS THE MIND THAT HAS WISDOM.. If you consider that astrology was the birthplace of all pagan worship and all black arts, etc,, and that it is the same original sin WISDOM Eve took in , then Babylon (the mind that has wisdom) is that system of worship of astrology throughout time….the five fallen kings would be the demons/angels who fell , the sixth king might be Herod, and the 7th king who only lives a short while would be mohammed/allah…The eighth who is of the 7th..is probably Islam’s 12th imam and Christian antichrist.. and it is most likely the false messiah Barak… as in the name of one of the demons of geneis 6.. Baraqiel..who incidentlly taught men ASTROLOGY …Mohammed’s horse was named baraq.. and all these names of barak mean lightning or lightning of god..Luke 10-18.. satan as lightning falls from heaven..

    As the whole world will follow the anti – Christ, including virtually all Christians, I sincerely doubt that he will be a Muslim. Thank you.

  11. Doyle said

    Don’t just read the Bible, but READ the Bible. Yes, many will follow the anti-Christ, including professing Christians, but actually read the Bible and understand why it will happen. First the apostasy, the falling away, which is going on all around us. How many times have you heard “there are many roads to heaven”, “all religions are of equal value”, “we must learn about and respect others”, etc. This politically correct world we live in, with it’s desire to not marginalize anyone, has gotten out of control. Non-Biblical beliefs are being preached/taught from the pulpit. Second, the revelation of the “man of Sin”, the anti-Christ. Whatever his nationality/ethnicity, he will bring “peace” to the world, which will attract many who long for an end to war/violence. Third, the death and resurrection of anti-Christ. He will be slain, and raised from the dead, in imitation of Christ. Fourth, the miraculous signs and wonders that will deceive many, including the elect. He, and his co-hort the False Prophet, will be able to perform many miraculous things (fire from heaven for one). So, no matter where he comes from, he WILL have followers among all nations and religions. If I have offended, I apologize with the stipulation that you READ the WORD of the ONE TRUE GOD. May HE bless and keep you all.

    Muslims don’t Worship a Moon God: Refuting the Moon God allegation
    This claim is very strange since there is not a single Islamic source that says that we Muslims should worship the moon, nor is there a single Islamic source that says that our God is a moon God. Not only that, there is not a single source that shows any Muslims including the first Muslims in Mecca who used to worship the moon.

    So just with that information we have there we can simply lay this argument to bed, because the burden of proof is not on the Muslims to prove that our God is not a moon God, rather the burden of proof is on those who claim that our God is a moon God. The person who is making the claim must at least bring a shred of evidence from Islamic sources (Quran, Hadiths, Tafisr etc) that the God of Islam is a moon God. So far what we have is an argument from silence, which is made up of simple assumptions and personal assertions not backed up by any evidence.

    Now even though the burden of proof is not on me to prove that the God of Islam is NOT a moon God I shall still go ahead and do it. It is rather very easy to prove that Allah is not a moon God, and we don’t have to go into fancy work and books to try and prove this like some others have done, at the end of the day we have the very best book there is which is the Noble Quran, so we should simply what it tells us regarding the matter and conclude from there.

    Basically all I have to show from the Quran is a direct command from the Quran that tells us to NOT worship the moon, if I can produce this verse then the argument is closed and finished. It does not make much sense that we Muslims worship a moon God when our God in the Quran tells us to not worship the moon now does it? Off course not.

    Here is the direct command of the Noble Quran that we Muslims should not worship the moon:

    041.037

    YUSUFALI: Among His Signs are the Night and the Day, and the Sun and the Moon. Do not prostrate to the sun and the moon, but prostrate to Allah, Who created them, if it is Him ye wish to serve.

    So the verse is very explicit that we Muslims should not worship the moon nor the sun, and that the moon is a creation of Allah. This verse completely crushes the lie that we Muslims worship a moon God, I mean does it make sense that we Muslims worship a moon God when we have such a verse? Off course not!

    Let us read Ibn Kathir’s tafsir of this verse:

    Here Allah reminds His Creation of His power, and that He is the One Who has no equal, and He is Able to do all things. Allah’s saying;

    (And from among His signs are the night and the day, and the sun and the moon.) means, He created the night with its darkness and the day with its light, and they alternate without ceasing. And He created the sun with its shining light, and the moon with its reflected light. and He allotted their stages and gave them separate orbits in the heavens, so that by the variations in their movements man may know the stages of night and day, of weeks, months and years, and time periods related to people’s rights, acts of worship and various transactions. Moreover, because the sun and moon are the most beautiful of the heavenly bodies that can be seen in both the upper and lower realms, Allah points out that they are created entities which are in a state of enthrallment to Him, subject to His dominion and control. So He says:

    (Do not prostrate yourselves to the sun nor to the moon, but prostrate yourselves to Allah Who created them, if you (really) worship Him.) meaning, `do not associate anything in worship with Him, for your worship of Him will be of no benefit to you if you worship others alongside Him, because He does not forgive the association of others in worship with Him.’ He says:

    (But if they are too proud, ) i.e., to worship Him Alone, and they insist on associating others with Him,

    So it crystal clear that the moon is a creation of Allah and that it should NOT be worshipped

      When we study religion and interpretation of it’s holy writings and the background of it’s founder, one must not rely on what a “holy man’s book” alone.

      Refer to one of this studies below:

      Allah – the Moon God

      The Archeology of The Middle East

      The religion of Islam has as its focus of worship a deity by the name of “Allah.” The Muslims claim that Allah in pre-Islamic times was the biblical God of the Patriarchs, prophets, and apostles. The issue is thus one of continuity. Was “Allah” the biblical God or a pagan god in Arabia during pre- Islamic times? The Muslim’s claim of continuity is essential to their attempt to convert Jews and Christians for if “Allah” is part of the flow of divine revelation in Scripture, then it is the next step in biblical religion. Thus we should all become Muslims. But, on the other hand, if Allah was a pre- Islamic pagan deity, then its core claim is refuted. Religious claims often fall before the results of hard sciences such as archeology. We can endlessly speculate about the past or go and dig it up and see what the evidence reveals. This is the only way to find out the truth concerning the origins of Allah. As we shall see, the hard evidence demonstrates that the god Allah was a pagan deity. In fact, he was the Moon-god who was married to the sun goddess and the stars were his daughters.

      The reader must know that Ismael was a Hebrew.

      Archaeologists have uncovered temples to the Moon-god throughout the Middle East. From the mountains of Turkey to the banks of the Nile, the most wide-spread religion of the ancient world was the worship of the Moon-god. In the first literate civilization, the Sumerians have left us thousands of clay tablets in which they described their religious beliefs. As demonstrated by Sjoberg and Hall, the ancient Sumerians worshipped a Moon-god who was called many different names. The most popular names were Nanna, Suen and Asimbabbar. His symbol was the crescent moon. Given the amount of artifacts concerning the worship of this Moon-god, it is clear that this was the dominant religion in Sumeria. The cult of the Moon-god was the most popular religion throughout ancient Mesopotamia. The Assyrians, Babylonians, and the Akkadians took the word Suen and transformed it into the word Sin as their favorite name for the Moon-god. As Prof. Potts pointed out, “Sin is a name essentially Sumerian in origin which had been borrowed by the Semites. ”

      In ancient Syria and Canna, the Moon-god Sin was usually represented by the moon in its crescent phase. At times the full moon was placed inside the crescent moon to emphasize all the phases of the moon. The sun-goddess was the wife of Sin and the stars were their daughters. For example, Istar was a daughter of Sin. Sacrifices to the Moon-god are described in the Pas Shamra texts. In the Ugaritic texts, the Moon-god was sometimes called Kusuh. In Persia, as well as in Egypt, the Moon- god is depicted on wall murals and on the heads of statues. He was the Judge of men and gods. The Old Testament constantly rebuked the worship of the Moon-god (see: Deut. 4:19;17:3; II Kngs. 21:3,5; 23:5; Jer. 8:2; 19:13; Zeph. 1:5, etc.) When Israel fell into idolatry, it was usually the cult of the Moon-god. As a matter of fact, everywhere in the ancient world, the symbol of the crescent moon can be found on seal impressions, steles, pottery, amulets, clay tablets, cylinders, weights, earrings, necklaces, wall murals, etc. In Tell-el-Obeid, a copper calf was found with a crescent moon on its forehead. An idol with the body of a bull and the head of man has a crescent moon inlaid on its forehead with shells. In Ur, the Stela of Ur-Nammu has the crescent symbol placed at the top of the register of gods because the Moon-god was the head of the gods. Even bread was baked in the form of a crescent as an act of devotion to the Moon-god. The Ur of the Chaldees was so devoted to the Moon-god that it was sometimes called Nannar in tablets from that time period.

      A temple of the Moon-god has been excavated in Ur by Sir Leonard Woolley. He dug up many examples of moon worship in Ur and these are displayed in the British Museum to this day. Harran was likewise noted for its devotion to the Moon-god. In the 1950’s a major temple to the Moon-god was excavated at Hazer in Palestine. Two idols of the moon god were found. Each was a stature of a man sitting upon a throne with a crescent moon carved on his chest . The accompanying inscriptions make it clear that these were idols of the Moon-god. Several smaller statues were also found which were identified by their inscriptions as the “daughters” of the Moon-god. What about Arabia? As pointed out by Prof. Coon, “Muslims are notoriously loath to preserve traditions of earlier paganism and like to garble what pre-Islamic history they permit to survive in anachronistic terms.”

      During the nineteenth century, Amaud, Halevy and Glaser went to Southern Arabia and dug up thousands of Sabean, Minaean, and Qatabanian inscriptions which were subsequently translated. In the 1940’s, the archeologists G. Caton Thompson and Carleton S. Coon made some amazing discoveries in Arabia. During the 1950’s, Wendell Phillips, W.F. Albright, Richard Bower and others excavated sites at Qataban, Timna, and Marib (the ancient capital of Sheba). Thousands of inscriptions from walls and rocks in Northern Arabia have also been collected. Reliefs and votive bowls used in worship of the “daughters of Allah” have also been discovered. The three daughters, al-Lat, al-Uzza and Manat are sometimes depicted together with Allah the Moon-god represented by a crescent moon above them. The archeological evidence demonstrates that the dominant religion of Arabia was the cult of the Moon-god.

      In Old Testament times, Nabonidus (555-539 BC), the last king of Babylon, built Tayma, Arabia as a center of Moon-god worship. Segall stated, “South Arabia’s stellar religion has always been dominated by the Moon-god in various variations.” Many scholars have also noticed that the Moon-god’s name “Sin” is a part of such Arabic words as “Sinai,” the “wilderness of Sin,” etc. When the popularity of the Moon-god waned elsewhere, the Arabs remained true to their conviction that the Moon-god was the greatest of all gods. While they worshipped 360 gods at the Kabah in Mecca, the Moon-god was the chief deity. Mecca was in fact built as a shrine for the Moon-god.

      This is what made it the most sacred site of Arabian paganism. In 1944, G. Caton Thompson revealed in her book, The Tombs and Moon Temple of Hureidha, that she had uncovered a temple of the Moon-god in southern Arabia. The symbols of the crescent moon and no less than twenty-one inscriptions with the name Sin were found in this temple. An idol which may be the Moon-god himself was also discovered. This was later confirmed by other well-known archeologists.

      The evidence reveals that the temple of the Moon-god was active even in the Christian era. Evidence gathered from both North and South Arabia demonstrate that Moon-god worship was clearly active even in Muhammad’s day and was still the dominant cult. According to numerous inscriptions, while the name of the Moon-god was Sin, his title was al- ilah, i.e. “the deity,” meaning that he was the chief or high god among the gods. As Coon pointed out, “The god Il or Ilah was originally a phase of the Moon God.” The Moon-god was called al- ilah, i.e. the god, which was shortened to Allah in pre-Islamic times. The pagan Arabs even used Allah in the names they gave to their children. For example, both Muhammad’s father and uncle had Allah as part of their names.

      The fact that they were given such names by their pagan parents proves that Allah was the title for the Moon-god even in Muhammad’s day. Prof. Coon goes on to say, “Similarly, under Mohammed’s tutelage, the relatively anonymous Ilah, became Al-Ilah, The God, or Allah, the Supreme Being.”

      This fact answers the questions, “Why is Allah never defined in the Qur’an? Why did Muhammad assume that the pagan Arabs already knew who Allah was?” Muhammad was raised in the religion of the Moon-god Allah. But he went one step further than his fellow pagan Arabs. While they believed that Allah, i.e. the Moon-god, was the greatest of all gods and the supreme deity in a pantheon of deities, Muhammad decided that Allah was not only the greatest god but the only god.

      In effect he said, “Look, you already believe that the Moon-god Allah is the greatest of all gods. All I want you to do is to accept that the idea that he is the only god. I am not taking away the Allah you already worship. I am only taking away his wife and his daughters and all the other gods.” This is seen from the fact that the first point of the Muslim creed is not, “Allah is great” but “Allah is the greatest,” i.e., he is the greatest among the gods. Why would Muhammad say that Allah is the “greatest” except in a polytheistic context? The Arabic word is used to contrast the greater from the lesser. That this is true is seen from the fact that the pagan Arabs never accused Muhammad of preaching a different Allah than the one they already worshipped. This “Allah” was the Moon-god according to the archeological evidence. Muhammad thus attempted to have it both ways. To the pagans, he said that he still believed in the Moon-god Allah. To the Jews and the Christians, he said that Allah was their God too. But both the Jews and the Christians knew better and that is why they rejected his god Allah as a false god.

      Al-Kindi, one of the early Christian apologists against Islam, pointed out that Islam and its god Allah did not come from the Bible but from the paganism of the Sabeans. They did not worship the God of the Bible but the Moon-god and his daughters al-Uzza, al-Lat and Manat. Dr. Newman concludes his study of the early Christian-Muslim debates by stating, “Islam proved itself to be…a separate and antagonistic religion which had sprung up from idolatry.” Islamic scholar Caesar Farah concluded “There is no reason, therefore, to accept the idea that Allah passed to the Muslims from the Christians and Jews.” The Arabs worshipped the Moon-god as a supreme deity. But this was not biblical monotheism. While the Moon-god was greater than all other gods and goddesses, this was still a polytheistic pantheon of deities. Now that we have the actual idols of the Moon-god, it is no longer possible to avoid the fact that Allah was a pagan god in pre-Islamic times. Is it any wonder then that the symbol of Islam is the crescent moon? That a crescent moon sits on top of their mosques and minarets? That a crescent moon is found on the flags of Islamic nations? That the Muslims fast during the month which begins and ends with the appearance of the crescent moon in the sky?

      CONCLUSION

      The pagan Arabs worshipped the Moon-god Allah by praying toward Mecca several times a day; making a pilgrimage to Mecca; running around the temple of the Moon-god called the Kabah; kissing the black stone; killing an animal in sacrifice to the Moon-god; throwing stones at the devil; fasting for the month which begins and ends with the crescent moon; giving alms to the poor, etc.

      The Muslim’s claim that Allah is the God of the Bible and that Islam arose from the religion of the prophets and apostles is refuted by solid, overwhelming archeological evidence. Islam is nothing more than a revival of the ancient Moon-god cult. It has taken the symbols, the rites, the ceremonies, and even the name of its god from the ancient pagan religion of the Moon-god. As such, it is sheer idolatry and must be rejected by all those who follow the Torah and Gospel.
