¤¤¤Starting of Shirk in descendants of Ismail(Alaihis Salam)¤¤¤ The Kaaba served as a place of ALLAH’S worship. Centuries passed away. People forgot the DIVINE message and the Right path which led the people to the Sublime Truth. In imitation to other Idol worshippers, idols of strange shapes were introduced to represent deities which were supposed to govern and fulfil objects and purposes of the worshippers. Innumerable stone-idols and statues, whatever satanic whims could suggest, were set up. The worship of ALLAH was forgotten, rather HIS associates were formed and valen as intermediaries and mediators. This type of worship is the worst one that renders the worshipper fall below the DIGNITY of Man, degenerates him and makes him SUPERSTITIOUS and Immoral. Those who Disown ALLAH and Worship Idols, Islam calls them”KAAFIR”and”MUSHRIK”i.e., Infidels and heathens or pagans. Beware! Allah the Exalted says in Holy Quran : Verily !Allah forgives not (the sin of) setting up partners with Him, but He forgives whom He wills sins other than that, and whoever setup partners in worship with Allah , has indeed strayed far away. (4:116) O Allah save all human beings from Shirk and guide us the Right and Straight path. Ameen. Share the Info.
