Allah the Exalted has conferred a special blessing upon this ummah - that is, the whole earth has been declared a mosque for it. Therefore, when the time for prayer comes, a Muslim may pray wherever he may be.
Abu Dharr asked the Prophet, "What was the first mosque on the earth?" He said: "The Masjid al-Haram [in Makkah]."
Abu Dharr asked: "which is the next oldest mosque?"
The Prophet sallallahu alehi wassalam said: "The al-Aqsa Mosque."
Abu Dharr asked: "How much time was there between [the building of the two]."
The Prophet sallallahu alehi wasallam replied: "Forty years."Then, he said: "Wherever you may be, at the time of salah, you may pray for it [the earth] is all a mosque." This is related by the group.
Tabari 1:216 "Allah created the Ancient House upon the water on four pillars. He did this two thousand years before he created this world"
Let us analyse the above verses carefully:
***This Hadith affirms that the Ka'ba was actually built long afterAbraham and Ishmael had died.
Abraham lived about 2000 BC and the Temple was built by Solomon in about 958-951 BC. This implies that the Ka'ba was built approximately 998-991 BC.
If Muhammad is correct, then the Quran is wrong.But if the Quran is correct in stating that Abraham and Ishmael built the Ka'ba, then the Hadith and Muhammad are wrong.
Yet, if this particular Hadith is wrong at such an extremely important point of history and theology, then this throws into question the authenticity of the Hadith collections, especially al-Bukhari's collection which is considered to be the most reliable and authentic collection.
Yet, to reject the Hadith is todestroy the historical significance of Islam since the details of Muhammadan Islam such as Muhammad's prophetic calling, his life and wives, the 'revelations', the wars, etc are matters that are only found in Islamic traditions; the Hadith ***
Centuries before there was a Temple and synagogues, the Israelites and the Jews prayed in all corners of the Earth, wherever they were since the whole earth was considered God's creation. Muhammad's assertion that it belongs to his Umma isUNTRUE,IGNORANT and FALSE.
How could al Tabari, or any intelligent human being, even conceive of the idea that BEFORE THE CREATION,ANYTHING COULD HAVE EXISTED?
After all, the whole idea of the story of the creation is that the AlmightyCREATED a universe which DID NOT EXIST.
Even TIME starts ONLY with the Creation and hence the idea that there were 2000 yearsBEFORE the Creation is not only ILLOGICAL but most certainly IMBECILE.
Before the Creation, there could have been no Earth upon which there was water let alone a building. Moreover, according to the Hadiths - NOT the Quran - the Ancient House was in Mecca, which according to 'tradition' had only Zamzam, a well, as the source of its water supply.
Furthermore, according to 2: 126-127, it was Abaraham & Ishmael who put up the foundations of the 'House'.
2: 126"And remember Abraham said: "My Lord make this a City of Peace and feed its people with fruits such of them as believe in Allah and the Last Day." He said: "(Yea) and such as reject faith for a while will I grant them their pleasure but will soon drive them to the torment of fire an evil destination (indeed)!"
127And remember Abraham and Isma`il raised the foundations of the House(with this prayer): "Our Lord! accept (this service) from us for thou art the All-Hearing the All-Knowing.
If the world was not yet created, there would have been no Earth and no water, then how could Muhammad allege that the Ancient House was built two thousand years before?
There is neither logic nor truth in what an allegedly intelligent 'prophet' had asserted above.
Since Muhammad is so wrong again and again, how can his followers allege that he was very truthful and full of knowledge and wisdom?
As usual in the Quran and Hadiths,LOGIC, VERACITY, REALITY,HISTORY, TIME, SPACE, FACTS & FIGURES are CONTORTED and TWISTED to fit the most INAUTHENTIC and PERVERTED SCRIPTURES that have ever been INSINUATED and forced upon the HUMAN CONSCIOUSNESS ***
In the wars of succession to Muhammad, in 681CE, the Ummayad Caliph Yazid bin Mu'awyia sent his general al Hassan ibn Numair al Sakuni(Tabari; Ya'qubi) first to loot and despoil theMedina and the Mosque of the Prophet and later in 683 by the same general to lay siege to Mecca.
His catapults rained stones upon the Haram (Holy Mosque) of Mecca where ibn al Zubair had taken refuge. In the course of the siege, the Ka'ba caught fire and was burned to the ground. The intensity of the heat was so great that the Blackstone was fractured into three parts.
The holiest shrines in 'Islam' were destroyed and violated by 'Muslim' forces under the command of 'Muslim' leaders.
Not even the pagan Arabs were ever willing to do so in all the centuries that they had it under their control. By any standard of logic or morality, it was a despicable and totally inexcusable act.
The besieging armies left the unfinished job for political reasons in November 27, 683. In 692, the caliph Abd al Malik, sent his iron fisted general al Hajjaj ibn Yusuf al Thaqafi to besiege Mecca once more, for six months, until he was able send ibn al Zubayr's head to Damascus.
In 929 AD, the Karmatians invaded Mecca and carried off the Black Stone. Ten years later it was returned.
When it came down to brass knuckles, the 'Muslims' did not hesitate to break every rule and prohibition in their Quran.
They, who presume to sit in judgement of other religions, are in no way better or superior either morally or religiously to any other.
The Muhammadans erroneously claim that Allah has protected the Quran from corruption, yet their Allah was not able to protect his Sacred House from destruction.
