History would have us believe that the Islamic Middle East has no history at all before the advent of the Prophet.
However the rich culture and other practices of the so-called Nomads, (this is how the Arabians pre dating The Prophet were described), belie these assumptions.
Their concept of Family, Extended Families, Clan kinship, hospitality and valour do not bespeak of Nomadic culture.
I had written articles on the pre-Islamic Heritage of the present Islamic Middle east, how Vikramaditya’s Kingdom extended to Arabia, His inscriptions are found in Kaaba, Arabia was called Aravasthan,meaning land of Horses, which find reference in Tamil literature as well, the practice of awarding poets being a Tamil Kings practice is found in Ancient Arabia,Ganesha Idol was found in Kuwait,Mecca is a Shiva Temple, 786, considered holy by the Muslims is Flipped OM,Mohammad’s Uncle composed a Hymn in Praise of Lord Shiva,Sapthapathi was practiced in pre-Islamic Arabia and Navagrahas were worshiped.
I have found reference to Kaaba in Mecca being called Kaabaaleswaran,a name of Lord Shiva.
One can find Kabaleswaran Temple in Chennai Tamil Nadu and it is quite popular.
Linga being worshiped in Kaaba.
The source is a Muslim gentleman.
He had also posted the image of Kaaba of the 50’s.
One can see the Shiva Linga with Avudaiyar clearly.
“The word Kabaa may originate from Tamil and the word Kabaalishwaran. Tamil is considered one of the oldest languages of the world.Dravidian’s worshiped Lord Shiva as their Primal Deity – from the Indus valley civilization. Shiva Temple’s in South India are called as Kabaalishwaran temple’s. Kabaali, therefore – refer to Lord Shiva.
There are many other words in Islam that appear to be connected to Hinduism. For example, in Sanskrit Allah, Akka and Amba are synonyms. They signify a goddess or mother. The Islamic practice of Bakari Eed (Eid) derives from the Go-(M)edh and Ashva-(M)edh Yagnas or sacrifices of Vedic times. Eed in Sanskrit means worship. The Islamic word Eed for festive days, signifying days of worship, is therefore a pure Sanskrit word. [Note: The word Bakari is an Indian language word for a goat. Muslims sacrifice goats during Eid]
Since Eed means worship and Griha means ‘house’, the Islamic word Idgah signifies a ‘House of worship’ which is the exact Sanskrit connotation of the term. Similarly the word ‘Namaz’ derives from two Sanskrit roots ‘Nama’ and ‘Yajna’ (NAMa yAJna) meaning bowing and worshipping.
Recital of the Namaz (Nama-smaranam in Hindi) five times a day owes its origin to the Vedic injunction of Panchmahayagna (five daily worship- Panch-Maha-Yagna) which is part of the daily Vedic ritual prescribed for all individuals.
Four months of the year are regarded as very sacred in Islamic custom. The devout are enjoined to abstain from plunder and other evil deeds during that period. This originates in the Chaturmasa i.e., the four-month period of special vows and austerities in Hindu tradition. Shabibarat is the corrupt form of Shiva Vrat and Shiva Ratra.
The Islamic term ‘Eed-ul-Fitr’ derives from the ‘Eed of Piters’ that is worship of forefathers in Sanskrit tradition. In India, Hindus commemorate their ancestors during the Pitr-Paksha that is the fortnight reserved for their remembrance. The very same is the significance of ‘Eed-ul-Fitr’ (worship of forefathers).
In ancient Hinduism the ‘demons’ always return to the world to create havoc, misery and suffering and destroy the good that the sacred people have created. Is Islam this demon of our age, distorting itself as a (false) religion, and create its endless problems for other people in the world?
