Leaving Islam




The above interpretation means that the angel (Gabriel) implanted the seed (Ruh) of Allah inside the womb of Mary. It might seem incredible but let us read ibn Kathir ‘s interpretation of verse 66:12.


                     (And Maryam, the daughter of `Imran who guarded her chastity (private part).) meaning, who protected and purified her honor, by being chaste and free of immorality,

[فَنَفَخْنَا فِيهِ مِن رُّوحِنَا]

                     (And We breathed into it (private part) through Our Ruh,) meaning, through the angel Jibril. Allah sent the angel Jibril to Maryam, and he came to her in the shape of a man in every respect. Allah commanded him to blow into a gap of her garment and that breath went into her womb through her private part; this is how `Isa was conceived. This is why Allah said here,

[فَنَفَخْنَا فِيهِ مِن رُّوحِنَا وَصَدَّقَتْ بِكَلِمَـتِ رَبَّهَا وَكُتُبِهِ]

                     (And We breathed into it through Our Ruh, and she testified to the truth of her Lords Kalimat, and His Kutub,) meaning His decree and His legislation.

[وَكَانَتْ مِنَ الْقَـنِتِينَ]


Even ibn Kathir admits that Jesus carried Allah’s seed (sperm or Ruh?). So why Islam must reject the Christians’ assertion that Jesus was, after all, the son of Allah (or God)? Seems the Christians are correct in asserting Jesus is the son of Allah.

Here ends the brief history of Allah. In a later part, you will learn more about Allah’s abilities with obstetrics and gynecology.

Allah frequently changes His residence.
From the very short history of Allah narrated above, we can draw the following conclusions about different versions of Allah. Here is a short list of Allahs (plural!) and their probable places of residences.

The Sumerian Allah: ( Sumer , Babylon ; and then Mecca ).
The Alaha Allah: ( Syria , then Mecca ).
The Elh Allah: ( Syria , then Mecca ).
The Ilah Allah: ( Syria , then Mecca ).
The moon Allah: (south Arabia, then Mecca ).
The sun Allah (Baal): ( Egypt , then probably Mecca ).
The Hubal Allah: ( Syria , then Ka’ba, Mecca ).
The Jehovah Allah: (probably, Palestine , then Mecca ).
Elohim Allah: (central Arabia, then Mecca ).
Ila Allah : (central Arabia, then Mecca ).
The ar-Rahman Allah: (north Arabia, south Arabia, then Mecca ).
The ar-Rahim Allah: ( Yemen , then Mecca ).
Sin Allah: (Hadramawt, then Mecca ).
Hallah Allah: ( Syria , then Mecca ).
Ilu Allah: ( Babylon , Syria and then Mecca ).
El Allah: ( Palestine , then Mecca ).
Wadd Allah: (Minaean, then Mecca ).
Almaqah Allah: (City of Saba , then Mecca ).
Allah Taa’la, the most high Allah: (Ka’ba, Mecca ).

We might be amazed at so many different versions of Allah. But hold on. Does not the Qur’an say that Allah has many names? If fact, the Islamic scholars insist that Allah has ninety-nine names (including Allah, this makes it a century, to be precise). Although we do not find any verses in the Qur’an which specifically spells out this number (ninety-nine), we should not be surprised at so many names (in reality, different versions) of Allah. The only problem is: if we read the Qur’an carefully, cover to cover, several times, we might find many more names of Allah than the ninety-nine as claimed by the Islamist scholars. We should not be amazed if we note that there are around three hundred (yes, three hundred) descriptions of Allah—to be exact.

What should be most startling is that all those Allahs (plural!) lived at different locations but only within the boundaries of Arabia , Syria , Palestine , Mesopotamia, Babylonia and Iraq . Why should Allah choose only these places (Arab lands, to say it bluntly) to live when the entire universe is His? This question is not hard to answer when we figure out the depth of geographical knowledge of those ancient Arabs, Sumerians and Babylonians. The fascinating point is: having lived in those territories for many millenniums, Allah suddenly changed His mind with the birth of Muhammad, the Prophet of Islam. Islam claims that Allah made Ka’ba 2 000 years before He created Adam (Ghazali, 1993, p. 1.190). There is evidence to suggest that Allah did, at least for a while, live in Mecca . An inscription found during the digging of Ka’ba foundation by Muhammad’s grandfather Abdal Muttalib read, “I am Allah, the Lord of Bakka…” ( ibn Ishaq, 2001, p. 85).

Having travelled through all those desert lands, finally, when Allah learned about the birth of Muhammad, He determined to settle permanently in Mecca , at Ka’ba, to be specific. This should not surprise anyone. Because the other name of Ka’ba is Bait Allah (Allah’s residence).

Therefore, it will be quite correct to say that Allah does have a permanent physical abode (at least a temporary one) on earth, and it is Ka’ba. Every year millions of Muslims travel to Ka’ba just for this reason—to meet Allah in person, in the Ka’ba stone.

Here are a few verses from the Qur’an which confirm that Allah decided finally to permanently settle in Mecca when Muhammad was in Mecca .

During Muhammad’s time in Mecca , Allah lived in Mecca ; He was the Lord of Mecca;
Muhammad is commanded to serve the Lord of the city (of Mecca ) and to be of those who submit to Islam…27:91.

The Quraysh should adore Allah for giving them the security and importance of Ka’ba (i.e., K’aba is the abode of Allah)...106:1-3.

Ka’ba is the house of Allah; visit Allah there at any time—pilgrimage or not...2:158.

Readers should understand that here we are talking of Muhammad’s Allah. The Pagans of Arabia, for a long time before Muhammad started his preaching, knew that Allah, along with His consorts, daughters and companions lived in Mecca . What they could not accept was Muhammad’s complete rejection of the associates of Allah, the numerous idols which the Pagans believed interceded with Allah. Thus, they betook Muhammad’s Allah as a new brand of God which they rejected out of hand.
