Did Allah Come From?
Dr. Robert Morey (writes):
Muslims worship a god by the name of Allah. They also give him ninety
nine other names. The question that naturally arises is who or what is
this Allah? Where did the Muslims derive their ideas of Allah’s nature
In his works, Dr. Robert Morey - a Christian
missionary, maintains having conducted a comprehensive research and made
exhaustive study on the subject "Allah of Islam". The author alleges that
the Muslims give ninety nine "other names"
to Allah. It is indeed strange that a learned
scholar who has written books and articles on the subject of "Allah" does
not even know that these "ninety nine"
are not the "other names" of
Allah, but they are His attributes!
In the event that the author is quite aware of the true facts and yet has
made this remark then one can only guess that the author's intentions,
from the outset, are not to deal with the facts but to present distorted
views for Allah.
Historical Source of Islam
Historians, linguists, and archeologists have dug into this question
for over a century. Various archeological digs in Arabia and throughout
the Middle East have uncovered the answer: Islam is a modern version of
the ancient fertility religion of the moon god. Once this is grasped, the
rise and history of Islam becomes clear.
The Arab conquests were made possible because the central powers
in the Middle East had exhausted themselves in wars against each other.
They were not able to fight off wave after wave of Arab armies which subdued
entire nations with merciless slaughter, rape and plunder.
The Arabs destroyed some of the wonders of the ancient world such
as the world famous library in Alexandria, Egypt. They destroyed many ancient
churches and synagogues. Anthropologists have recorded how the Arabs destroyed
the cultural heritage of any nation which fell under their sword.
One may wonder why the author has not stayed
on the course? Why has he abruptly started painting pictures of "The
Arab Conquests & The Conquering Armies" with
a black paint brush? It seems that Dr. Morey is totally ignorant of, beside
other true historical facts, of the atrocities committed during the Seven
Christian Crusaders inaugurated by Pope Urban II and his successors. I
wish Dr. Morey would rather stay on the subject and present specific details
concerning the "Muslims beliefs for Allah"
and comparing them with the so called beliefs of the "ancient
fertile religion of the moon-god".
Who were these Arabs? They obviously were not Christians because
they destroyed churches and murdered priests wherever they went. Obviously,
they were not Jews because they persecuted Jews without pity. This is seen
today in their hatred of Israel and the many wars and acts of terrorism
waged against Jews throughout the world.
If the Arab hordes which swept over the ancient world were not Christians
or Jews, then what were they? They were pagans who worshipped a pagan god
called Allah and followed pagan rites
which were practised in Arabia long before the religion of Islam
Dr. Robert Morey, who has written texts on
the subject of how to debate with the opponents, wants his readers to embrace
his innovated theory that if the "Arab Army" was not composed of Jews or
Christians then it had to be of "the Pagans, worshipping a pagan god".
The fact is; the Islamic Civilization was flourishing and the so called
European Civilization and the Renaissance had not yet emerged, when the
Army was conquering the parts of Europe and
North Africa, .
Islam Denies the Trinity
These facts of history reveal that Islam does not worship the same
God worshipped by Christians. Why? Christians worship one God in three
persons: the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. But Islam denies the
Holy Trinity and worships a different deity called Allah who is not a Father
and who has no son.
Since the religion found in the Bible teaches the Trinity, then it
does not take a Ph.D. to see that Islam did not come from the Bible. Thus
it is not the religion of the biblical prophets, apostles or Jesus.
The untainted "Unity of God", as professed
by Islam and Judaism, has
hundred percent "explicit"
endorsement in the Old Testament (Ex. 20:3; Is. 45:21) and also in the
New Testament (Jn. 17:3). What is not endorsed by the Holy Bible is the
"Doctrine of Trinity". Today, it is no secret that it was the Pagan
Emperor Constantine who called the Council
of Nicaea in his Imperial Roman Palace and approved the observance
of Easter Sunday and the Doctrine of "co-equality", "co-eternity" and "consubstantiality"
of Jesus with his Father. Constantine was declared "baptized" on his death
bed when water was poured on his forehead in 337 A.D. Imagine a Christian
theologian, accusing Islam of denying Trinity, does not even know the roots
of Trinity! Why should the religion established by the Almighty Allah Himself
should endorse a theory that was promulgated by a Pagan Emperor? The proper
question is; should the Christians be following a Pagan Emperor or the
righteous Christ Jesus who even refused to
be called "good", let alone "god-head" (Mk.
Islam's origins have been traced back by scholars to the ancient
fertility religion of the worship of the moon god which was always the
dominant religion of Arabia. The moon god was worshipped by praying toward
Mecca several times a day, making an annual pilgrimage to the Kabah which
was a temple of the moon god, running around the Kabah seven times, caressing
an idol of a black stone set in the wall of the Kabah, running between
two hills, making animal sacrifices, gathering on Fridays for prayers,
giving alms to the poor, etc.. These were pagan rites practised by the
Arabs long before Muhammad was born.
The author seems to be very good at making
High Hamburgers without any Beef! Dr. Morey:
Where is the "BEEF"? It is easy to make wild
accusations without providing credible evidences and documents.
The Crescent Moon
What religion today practices the pagan rites of the moon god? Islam!
This explains why the crescent moon is the symbol of Islam. It is placed
on top of mosques and minarets and displayed on hats, flags, rugs, amulets
and even jewellery. Every time you see the Muslim symbol of a crescent
moon, you are seeing the ancient symbol of the moon god.
The Crescent Moon heralds the beginning of
the new month and the new year. During the period of Islamic Empire, the
crescent moon was adopted as a state emblem. It had nothing to do with
religious beliefs. Today, Eagle is the popular state emblem in U.S.A. Does
that emblem represent the religious beliefs of the citizens of U.S.A.?
The next time when Dr. Morey happens to see
an Easter Egg he should think of Eostre,
an ancient Anglo-Saxon goddess and the pagan
rituals. Below is an excerpt from Compton's Interactive Encyclopedia Deluxe
Copyright © 1994, 1995, 1996, 1997 The Learning Company, Inc.:
"Many Easter customs come from
the Old World. The white lily, the symbol of the resurrection, is the special
Easter flower. Rabbits and colored eggs have come from pagan antiquity
as symbols of new life. Easter Monday egg rolling, a custom of European
origin, has become a tradition on the lawn of the White House in Washington,
D.C. ... The name Easter comes from Eostre, an ancient Anglo-Saxon
goddess, originally of the dawn. In pagan times an annual spring festival
was held in her honour. Some Easter customs have come from this and other
pre-Christian spring festivals."
Denial Not a Refuge
Does the average Muslim know that he is worshipping a moon god? No.
Does he know why the crescent moon symbol sits on top of his mosque? No.
Is he shocked and perhaps angered at these facts of history? Yes. But can
mere denial or angry threats refute the fact that Islam is nothing more
than a modern version of the ancient religion of the moon god Allah? No.
The average Muslim has been kept in the dark by the Mullahs and Imams who
would lose their power if the truth ever got
An "average Muslim", after reading the above
would most probably quote you the following two verses from the Holy Qur'an.
These two verses are enough to knock out the brain of your FALSEHOOD.
"Among His Signs are the Night and
the Day and the Sun and Moon. Prostrate (adore) not to the Sun and the
Moon but prostrate to Allah, Who created them, if it is Him ye wish to
Holy Qur'an 41:37
Islam is the fastest growing religion of our era.
Today, more Christians are turning to Islam then before. Who should know
it better than Dr. Morey who has written a book on The Islamic Invasion.
He writes; "This revealing book presents the
truth about this rapidly spreading religion...".
Are you telling your readers that the new converts to Islam, especially
the Christians, are so much impressed and attracted by the "modern
version of the ancient pagan religion" that
they are trading their Christianity and Trinity for a "moon-god"?
The Truth is; Prophet Muhammad (the Spirit of Truth), has "guided" the
Islamic Ummah (Islamic Brotherhood) "into all the Truth",
as it was prophesied nearly 600 years before his birth, by Jesus Christ.
(Please read John 16:13 and keep reading further, you will be amazed).
"Nay We hurl the Truth against falsehood and
it knocks out its brain and behold falsehood doth perish! Ah! woe be to
you for the (false) things ye ascribe (to Us).
Holy Qur'an 21:18
Worship the True God
Dear Muslim friend, instead of worshipping a false moon god called
Allah, you should worship the God of the Patriarchs, prophets, and apostles.
This one true God is the Father, the Son and the
Holy Spirit. Read the New Testament for it is the true Word of God.
Dear Truth Seekers: Please pickup a copy of
the Holy Bible in Arabic and ask any of your Arabic speaking friend to
read loudly the first page from the Old Testament. Keep counting
how many times he reads the word "Allah"? I guarantee, it is at least half
a dozen times. If "Allah" of the Holy Qur'an is the "moon-god", what is
"Allah" of the Holy Bible? I hope Dr. Morey has an answer!!!
A Christian reader responded to me, after reading
the article on "moon-god" that the "Muslim Rulers" were so ruthless that
they would not allow the circulation of any Bible in Arabic that would
dare substitute the word "Allah" with any other word. I asked him; what
about the copies that are being presently published and circulated from
North America and Europe? Needless to mention, he did not respond.
The Home Of The Research And Education Foundation
should rather first undertake the job collecting copies of the "tainted"
Arabic Bible from their fellow Christians and replacing them with copies
that have no trace of "moon-god", before asking Muslims to clean their
Finally, Jesus Christ and many of his disciples
spoke Aramaic. In the Aramaic language the word for the Almighty God is
‘Allaha’ and the name of Jesus is 'Iessa'. There are records of Jesus praying
in Aramaic to his God 'Allaha". Was Christ
also misguided by the Pagan Arabs?

The above was an irrefutable proof from the
Arabic Language Bible. The following web site has, besides many other convincing
arguments, an irrefutable proof from the Language that Jesus spoke i.e.
ARAMAIC. I hope you will enjoy a visit to:
More Text Added on March 1, 2003:
The word "ALLAH" is made-up of the following two syllables.
"AL" and "ILAH". AL means THE;
ILAH means GOD.
The two together simply means "THE GOD" (without partner[s]).
When the above two syllables, which are the two units of pronunciations
the word Allah, are combined and joined together the letter "I"
The Arabic word for "Moon" is "QAMAR", as used in the heading (title)
for Chapter 54 of the Qur'an. It is not to be found in this word
"Allah" under study.
Recently, some Christian scholars have made great efforts to publish
the sketches of the Statues of the Moon God from the period of the "Pagan
Arabs" who had lived before the birth of Prophet Muhammad (pbuh). None
is denying that. The
Pagan Arabs had a "moon-god". But, they also had hundreds of other
gods so why the "moon god". Their widely circulated and propagated argument
is that the followers of Prophet Muhammad have Crescent Moon on their Mosques.
The most important question is since when and by whom? More than
six centuries after the passing away of the Prophet of Islam, the Crescent
Moon became the symbol of the Ottoman Empire (founded in 1288). Look
at the read flag of the modern day Turkey with the white Crescent, the
historical seat of the Ottoman Empire. If Prophet Muhammad (pbuh), was
truly preaching the worship of a "moon god" to his companions, he would
have certainly placed the images of the "Crescent Moon" (or rather of the
"Full Moon" to signify the greater glory), on the Mosques that he and his
immediate followers had built in Madina and Mekkah.
The sketches of "moon gods" do not shake the beliefs of Muslims
in their Allah.
Muslims and Jews go by the Lunar Calendar. Christians go by the Solar.
Does that translate Jews too have a moon god like Muslims and Christians
have a sun god?
