Islam and copying Pagan beliefs

Really, how different are our arguments when assessed fairly against pagans? There is no guarantee that praying to a rock will produce anything. I can pray to the rock to ask for the sun to come out tomorrow and the probability of it happening is no different to praying to toothbrush, god of thunder, or anything else, including Allah. Only science, use of satellite maps, and powerful computers, that our forecasts have helped us know what will happen tomorrow.

Yet there are people who believe the wind or breeze is Allah waving his hand. Well, let’s wave Him back!

Ibn Abbas reported: A man cursed the wind in front of the Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him. The Prophet said, “Do not curse the wind, for it only acts as it was commanded. Verily, whoever curses anything that does not deserve it, the curse will backfire against him.”

But more important to acknowledge is Muhammad copied pagan practices including the practice of Tawaf:

Narrated ‘Asim: I asked Anas bin Malik: “Did you use to dislike to perform Tawaf between Safa and Marwa?” He said, “Yes, as it was of the ceremonies of the days of the Pre-lslamic period of ignorance, till Allah revealed: ‘Verily! (The two mountains) As-Safa and Al-Marwa are among the symbols of Allah. It is therefore no sin for him who performs the pilgrimage to the Ka’ba, or performs ‘Umra, to perform Tawaf between them.’ ” (2.158)
Sahih Bukhari 2:26:710

The Seven rounds we do around the kabaa is also copied from pre-islamic pagans who believes there is seven heavens, one for sun, moon, and the five planets pagans believed existed…but now we know this is all made up. We have nine planets, and if you count the sun and the moon – there should be 11 heavens! Can you imagine if the Quran said eleven heavens in reference to planets, sun, and our moon – we would never see the end of it! “MIRACLES OF THE QURAN” but it copied pagan beliefs and said seven Heavens- Quran 71:15, 37:6, 41:11-12, and 2:29.

Due to popular demands, I have decided to set up an online blog with all the memes you will need to source. The memes are intended to be fun, touches of humour, and informative. Every year many people like you and me, leave Islam. The US reports that 23% of American born Muslims have left Islam, 18% of British Muslims have left Islam, BBC reported in 2019 that 18% of Arabs see themselves are irreligious with the rate as high as 30% among the youth. This page is intended mainly to translate the many atheist Arabic memes that are shared in the Arabic social media such as Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter. Islamophobic content will not be tolerated! Content that challenges the teachings of the Quran, Hadith, Serat (story) of Mohammad, and Islamic teachings are all welcomed. If you are considering to convert to Islam or you are Muslim who is questioning your faith, this is the place to be. We welcome your contributions.
