18 - Before Islam people used to believe that Sirius star is a god who can benefit and harm people, but the Qur'an corrected this wrong beliefand confirmed that Sirius is a star which was created by Allah Almighty who says: (And that He ( Allah) is the Lord of Sirius (the star which the pagan Arabs used to worship)) {Sūrat An-Najm-The Star-verse49}, isn'ta clear evidence that Islam is a divine religion as it let people get rid of the habit of worshiping some creatures that cause no harm or benefit.

sHe said
If you read the whole passage in its entirety, what it seems to be saying is that before Islam, people worshipped a star called Sirus, believing that it could benefit and harm people.

That's very much like early man worshipping the sun, thunder and whatever they didn't understand but awed them.

By saying that Allah is the Lord of Sirus, it's the same as saying that Allah is the Lord of all creation, be it the sun, moon, stars. Sirus is merely one of a zillion of stars, albeit the brightest in Earth's sky.

I don't think that passage is saying that Allah is the Lord or King of Evil. That would be Satan.

Rather it is saying that Allah is higher than a star, and that people should be worshipping Allah and not his creation, Sirus, a mere star.

New Converts to Islam - Jan-Feb 2016 - YouTube

Chum- anyone can fo that.





It proves nothing.

Ans -yes,...I had to check - there are you tubes of Muslims who became atheists and atheists who became muslims,

The great conversion -count, like the great atrocity count- proves nothing about which is true. Only valid evidence and logical reason does that.

And nobody who believes a book that teaches that a fly's wing has the cure for the disease on the other wing is paying much attention to either valid evidence or logical reasoning.

Everybody go read the Terms Of Service and the forum posting rules.

Posting is to be done in English. Only when it is absolutely necessary may a short, brief section be done in Arabic, and an English translation must always be provided. This has not been adhered to in many posts in this thread.

When using material from another web site, you MUST NOT copy large sections of it. You should provide a link and a BRIEF snippet (usually 2 or 3 sentences). This rule appears to have been violated in many posts in this thread.

This is a place for discussions about Islam. It is not a place for you to promote your understanding of the religion. It is not a place for you to present long dissertations about your religion without discussion.

Please report any problems. You can't expect the volunteer moderators to keep up with reading every post in eveery forum.
