Muhammed show who Allah really was.

WORSHIP MAP OF MECCA
Babylon

Hajj, a pilgrimage, from Sumer to Mecca, we will follow two routes in this story.
Imagine you are standing in the city of Ur, central Mesopotamia, and facing north. Just
northwest of Sumer is Mount Ararat where the ark landed. Allah's first route to Mecca is
to your immediate left through Assyria which is named after Asshur who founded it.
Going on west and south we come to the coast of the Mediterranean sea in Phoenicia. We
cannot go directly south from there along the sea coast because Israel has claimed that
territory, and they never allowed IL or LIL, the pagan gods of Sumer, to pass through
their land. So we tuck in a bit to the east and go through the Arab lands just east of the
Jordan river, Petra, Jawf, and the area now known as Amman, Jordan. From there it is a
direct shot through Moab and Edom to the lush oasis of Taima and finally to Mecca.

MIGRATION MAP OF ALLAH


This map will help you to understand the two routes of the migration of
Allah to Mecca. Allah's migration simply followed the trade routes used in
ancient days. Nehemia of the Bible would have followed the northern
route, as would the wise men who came to see Jesus as a child. The two
routes both begin in Sumer on the Euphrates River.

The second route to Mecca, in the Hajj of Allah, is an about face from Sumer and right
down the Tigris and Euphrates Rivers to the Persian Gulf. We come down along the west
side of the Gulf through Dilmun, Bahrain, and Oman to the southeast tip of the Arabian
peninsula. We turn the corner westward, and we arrive in the south central trade centers
of the Arabian peninsula in Saba, which is now known as the Hadhramaut.

From there we move west along the Indian ocean to Yemen. Then we turn north along the
trade route, and it is a quick direct shot, from the south, and into Mecca. These are the
two routes that the ancient gods took as they migrated from Sumer to Mecca. The map is
provided which will help you to avoid getting lost along the way. Don't take a wrong turn
into the Empty Quarter-- you could die there.

You may ask, "How could Allah follow two routes to Mecca?" The answer is simple.
Allah was not a real god. Rather; he was a myth, and myths often take several routes as
they migrate to other lands. So, Allah could come along the trade routes by any trader,
fugitive, criminal, or conqueror who would perpetuate his legend. If it were not for the
central deserts of Arabia, which are a great barrier to travel, the route from Sumer to
Mecca might have been more direct. Even Allah was not up to seven hundred foot sand
dunes and living for 21 straight days on a smelly camel. Only the Bedhoin are tough
enough to cross the Empty Quarter of Arabia by camel. (FOOTNOTE 57 160 / shelf.
Those crafty Bedhoin are now offering tourists overnight camel tours into the desert.)

This is why the Bedhoin are the least affected, of the Middle Eastern peoples, by the
paganism of Babel and Sumer. Their fierceness and independence kept them largely
isolated to the desert. We will have no trouble following the two easier routes to Mecca if
we simply follow the inscriptions on graffiti stones at the various oases. Also, we will
read the epigraphs carved on the walls of the tombs and temples of the Middle Eastern
civilizations over the past 5000 years.

ALLAH'S HAJJ: THE NORTHERN ROUTE

Assyria

The first route to Mecca takes us to the west through Assyria. This is the most deadly
route because we travel through the territory of the most vicious and war-crazed culture
in the history of the Middle East. While the Sumerians and other Middle Eastern nations
exalted their gods and built them towers and temples, the Assyrians built monuments and
palaces to exalt their conquests at war. They had almost no culture outside of their war
machines.

The gilded shields of Sumer, designed to cause the enemy to submit, gave way to
weapons of iron in Assyria which were used to behead every man and spear every
pregnant woman in the belly. Later cultures built monuments to fallen heroes, and we, in
our day, seem to be pre-occupied with kicking ourselves in guilt by erecting retrospective
wailing walls.

But the Assyrians built buildings where they recorded in stone their most disgusting
tortures and mutilations, each king trying to maim and gore the vanquished more
zealously than the last. King Sennacherib razed eighty-nine towns and 820 villages to the
ground, carrying off 208,000 prisoners to be resettled elsewhere. When he defeated
Babylon, he burned it to the foundations, then he killed every soul in the city. Tiglath-
Pileser claimed, "I piled up their heads like heaps of grain outside the city gates."

To see an Assyrian book of stone, an example of the evidence used in this book.

ASSYRIAN BOOK
An Assyrian stone book with cuneiform writing. This six sided stone pillar
was used to describe the conquests and glory of Assyria. It is on such
pillars that credit was geiven to the various gods and goddesses for helping
the hero to lop off the heads of the enemy. Our Generals do the same
today, with generals on both sides of the battle often praying to the same
god. It was on these pillars that the LIL god and goddess family appeared
many times in Assyria. It was also in Assyria that Allat, consort of Allah,
had her own worship center.

We can confirm this by the Bible accounts of the experiences of the Hebrew people.
Without divine intervention by Jehovah, Israel would have been wiped off of the map by
the Assyrians. In fact, Assyria carried the norther kingdom of Israel, into captivity (I
Chronicles 5:26). Assyria had a clever device they used on the few captives they did not
kill. They resettled them in the territory of some other nation they had defeated.

To see an Assyrian king deciding whether or not to kill an enemy,

ASSYRIAN KING DECIDING


THE FATE OF AN ENEMY
Fig. 12 The custom of the Assyrian kings was to put their foot on the neck
of the vanquished king, then, unlike the Sumerians, kill him. The Assyrian
king might discuss, with his officials, the pros and cons of letting the poor
fellow live while he stood for a long time with his foot on his neck. There
were cases where the enemy was allowed to live, but it was rare. I think it
would be very good for our Presidents and Monarchs to have to do the
killing, in this fashion, with their own hands. It might slow them down a
bit in their lust for death, right?

The idea was to completely dilute national loyalties by thoroughly reshuffling the map. It
worked. But, the Assyrians had one great weakness, that is, they collected gods just like
every other nation, so their resettlement program left them with dozens of gods and
goddesses hanging around. This is why we must venture through their violent land
because LIL, (the root name of Allah) came this way before us.

military symbol of Assyria,


The killing and war making lust of Assyria was even more important
to the Assyrians than their religion. This was the exception in the Middle
East.
This also explains why blood lust is part of Islam, for the heritage of Islam
is
in ancient Semitic zeal and tradition.

A typical record of the passage of LIL, or Allah, through Assyria is found in a royal
inscription which may have been a bilingual effort-- only the Assyrian tablets survived.
The translator is Sayce in The Hibbert Lectures, p. 511-12, and it is, of course, in
cuneiform. The source is the Royal Asiatic Society, London, 1932. In line 14 there is
praise of the ruler, undoubtedly Assyrian, for his love for "the writings of the age before
the flood." This dates the Assyrian text solidly to 2500 BC or earlier.

In praising the ruler in line 17, the author says he set up worship to Shamash and
Rammam. This is the god Rimmon mentioned in the Bible, II King 5:18: Naaman, the
Assyrian General, says, "In this thing the LORD pardon thy servant, that when my master
goeth into the house of Rimmon to worship there, and he leaneth on my hand... I bow
down myself in the house of Rimmon, the LORD pardon thy servant in this thing."
Naaman had worshipped this god until he was converted to Jehovah through a healing
experience in Israel. He was told by God's prophet to go in peace since his heart was
right.

Rammam became Rimmon of later days, then he moved in two directions. In Persia and
India he became Brahman, and survives in Vedantic theology to this day. In Mecca,
Muhammed used the god name Rimmon as Rahman, which is one of the names for Allah,
and this is also Ramman.

Back to the clay tablets: On line 17 the whole name on Ramman is "Ramman ilani." Here
then we see that "ilani" is a basic god-word attached to the more specific god, Rammam,
and you can see the IL root in the "god" word. On line 18 of an opposite "page" we find
the Assyrian ruler praised in the name of "Enlil ilani, the wise one." You will recall that
Enlil was the primal earth god of Sumer. Thus, the bridge is complete between ancient
Sumer and Assyria. Allah is on his way.

Rahman was the Assyrian favorite and was the counterpart to Enlil, who, by this point in
time, was quite ancient. Here then is clear proof that LIL / IL / Enlil moved to Assyria to
become contemporary with Ramman ILani.

Ninlil, the goddess and wife of Enlil, came along also, being addressed in prayer as the
"wife of sovereignty." She had to share the goddess role with Beltis, wife of Baal,
showing how the old is added to the new. (FOOTNOTE 60: 153 / 86-87 / 1011) There
were around Shinar, and later around much of the Tigris and Euphrates Valley, mounds
where Semiramis was said to have buried her lovers. They accompanied the belief that
Tammuz, the later name of Nimrod, was the victim there. In allegory, a poem was written
centered on Gilgamesh, another Nimrod re-name. The goddess is addressed and scolded
for trying to kill Gilgamesh as follows:

Tammuz, the lover of thy youth,

Thou causest to weep every year.

The bright-colored Allallu bird thou didst love.

Thou didst crush him and break his pinions.

Note Allallu in the above poem. This is clearly an Allah god-form from 2300 BC!
Alasandair Livingstone did exhaustive work on the Babylonian and Assyrian scholars and
their notions and lists of gods. These works seem to be instructions as to whom one
should pray, and pray for, These god lists are similar to the long list of Saints in the
Roman Catholic Church, each having his own particular interest in nationalities and life
problems. All of the Sumerian pantheon is carefully exalted, and new gods are added as
they are needed.
ASSYRIAN ROYAL CHARIOT

And so, our Presidents and Dictators also ride around in their royal
chariots. They are called Rolls Royce, Mercedes, or Cadillac, but it is
ironic that they still measure their power in "horse power." Also, we can
see from the escorts that the royalty were not expected to be in a hurry. It
reminds us of the great parade of the fellow who manages to climb into the
big chair. He takes a slow victory ride to that chair. As King Solomon
said, "There is nothing new under the sun..."

In one list, two gods come up-- Alla and Alala. This is at least dated from 2300 BC, and it
shows that the name Allah had roots in the most literal sense from the Assyrian era. In
another liturgical prayer book of Assyria, the order of prayers was in descending order
with most of the pantheon included so that none would be offended. Way down the list
there was a request made to the "bird of heaven" to carry the prayers up for the
worshipper. This is without any doubt Allallu, the god mentioned in the above examples.

So we see that the heritage of Allah, or LIL, was at work in the Semitic language forms of
Assyria. Later Arab forms simply added the classic aspirated "h" on the end (ILAH) for
the male gender. The bird notions were lost, but the names retained.

Why Allah survived is not possible to determine except that all of Satan's deities multiply
and multiply to give the pagans the idea that there could not possibly be One God in
heaven. It is supremely ironic that Muhammed salvaged Allah from the Kaaba to
champion his monotheism, yet Allah is the product of much multiplication of pagan
deities.

Another explanation to the survival of IL / Enlil / Allah in Assyria is that the Assyrians
retained the gods of the people they so brutally wasted. In fact, they were far more
intimidated by their enemies' gods than by their enemies' armies. Hogarth shows how the
Babylonian priests, with no military power, kept the Assyrians at bay by reading out
edicts from the high gods to control Assyria.

NIMROD
THE FIRST WAR LORD

Fig. 15 Nimrod was a mighty hunter before the Lord, which is no


compliment. He began to conquer man and beast in the sheer lust for
power. His zeal to rule men passed on to Assyria, and today, Nimrods,
modern war lords, abound all over the world as heros of hegemony. It is
not a sign of strength in the Lord's Church that we have a lust for military
solutions to our problems. In these last days, those who "join up" to
"defend their country" will find themselves policing the world by raging
brutality for the New World Order, the New Age Great White
Brotherhood, Reconstructionists, and the United Nations

The map at the right shows the three eras of Assyrian empire building. This also
shows how the trade route from Nineveh would take Allah into North Arabia where
he would easily continue down the caravan route to Patra and on to Taima and
Mecca.

It is strange how some of history's bloodiest men run to the mosque and the church house
to hear from the gods. The Mafia are very faithful to Mother Catholic Church, and
Mother gives her blessing as the Lira roll into the deep pockets.

To confirm the bridge between Sumer and Assyria, we go to "The Annals of


Sennacherib." Luckenbill deciphered the chapter describing the improvements on the
royal palace, from which we take excerpts. This is a very small part of the cuneiform
material from the era, and in it we find the following:

Line 66- Assyrians are called "the subjects of Enlil" (note IL-god). Line 77-79- Both
Enlil and Ninlil are appealed to, which shows the clear migration, from Sumer to Assyria,
of the god and goddess concept in the IL model. Line 24- Enlil is called "Father," which
shows the nonsense of Muhammed's claim that Allah is not a father.
Line 68- ILANI is attached to Assur showing the IL root in describing a god. Line 13 of
the foundation stela (I-6) has ILANI covering all of the gods who might have been
overlooked. Of thirty gods and goddesses listed, who went out before the king to battle,
not one of the Sumerian pantheon is missing! Line 1-7 of broken inscription collection--
Assur (Asshur in the Bible) is said to be the high god, having founded Assyria, which
agrees with the Bible.

Before we leave Assyria we must take up a side issue. It is here in 2500 BC that we can
find the meaning of Akbar. The Muslim has a chant he shouts when he is spiritually
excited or when he is angry with some heretic. It is, "Allah u Akbar," and it is supposed
to mean, "Allah is Great." This is what Muhammed chanted as he defeated the Kouraish
in Mecca and rode around the Kaaba on his camel.

Well, Akbar is a strange thing to call Allah. Hislop tells us that there was a legend in
Babylon that Nimrod tried to destroy the light, and Shem rescued it. The story says that
mice were the producers of light, and they produced the light for Shem. The word for
mouse in Chaldean is "Aakbar." In Arabic and Turkish it is Gheber or Kheber. So, when
Muhammed cried "Allah u Akbar" in Mecca, he was actually saying, "Allah is a mouse."
This is not given to mock but to expose Islam for exactly what it is, a canonizing of fairy
tales.

Using Imam Shabit Ally’s hermeneutic, both Hebrew and Arabic have the word Akbar,
which in Arabic means greater. Yet according to the following lexical data, based on
Brown, Driver, Briggs and Gesenius, Akbar means mouse in Hebrew!

`akbar {ak-bawr'} Word Origin probably from the same as (05908) in the secondary
sense of attacking

The word appears in the following passages: Leviticus 11:29; I Samuel 6:4-5, 11, 18;
Isaiah 66:17.

Employing Imam Shabir Ally's hermeneutic we can say that when Muslims recite the
words Allahu Akbar they are actually testifying that Allah is a mouse!

Our visit to Assyria has involved a lot of detail, but I assure you that it is only a fraction
of what I have in my bibliography. It is very clear to all writers that Sumer's Enlil / LIL /
IL / Ninlil / ILANI, and the heritage of Allah, were all absorbed into Assyria. To them
were added Alla, or Alala, or Allallu which appear to be variations in the ongoing
evolution of Allah. There is no doubt that Allah arrived in Assyria from Sumer, so this
now brings us to the next destination in the Hajj of Allah.

Phoenicia

As we accompany Allah on his Hajj to Mecca, we travel south west from Assyria, and we
arrive in Phoenicia. We find that the people are Hamitic and known as the Canaanites in
the Bible. They had an edible corn-bread god named Dagon (compare this to the eating of
the god in the Roman Catholic Mass), and he was also the god to defeat when the
Hebrews fought with the Philistines. Phoenicia also had a god named Dushara who was
the sun god, and he died in the summer and came back to life on December 25th, just like
Marduk of Babylon. Dushara's mother's name was Kaaba, from whom the stone temple in
Mecca got its name.: Barton in Hebraica, Vol. 10,

Did Allah really leave Assyria and make it to Phoenicia? The Phoenicians had gods from
all directions, and they tried to include Elohim in their pantheon, even giving him a wife
named Elat. The goddess was never found in Bible-believing Israel, so this Phoenician
improvisation was an external pagan assault on Elohim's singularity or monotheism. The
"..at" ending, however; shows the feminine suffix which was also used with Allat, the
wife of Allah. This helps to see that languages did not change much over the centuries.

Also, king Sharru-kin of Babylon, better known as Sargon of Akkad, had conquered from
the "Upper sea" (Phoenicia) to the "Lower sea" (Persian Gulf), and he gave the credit to
Enlil, the primal earth deity. This predated the Phoenician empire by many years. So,
Enlil, or the LIL / IL / ILAH / Allah deity, was already powerful in Phoenicia from at
least 1000 BC and onward.

About 1350 BC the Phoenician inscriptions at Ras Shamrah revealed the entry in full
force of Ba'al. Ba'al was derived from Ba-ili, meaning "of the godhead." He arrived with
the Phoenicians when they migrated from the Negev south of Israel into their historic
home. His most obvious name in Phoenicia was Baal-Lebanon. We see the LIL root in
Ba'al (Ba-ILi), but he also had a son name Aleyin. He was the god of springs and water
for fertile crops. Here again may be an IL form. Vowels are the most common way in
which Semitic languages change since they are seldom written, using only
consonantsHow did all of this migrating happen? The camel may be an ugly rascal, but
he made it possible for the merchants of the ancient world to move from South Arabia to
Assyria and throughout the fertile crescent. That trade route, or main street, went right
through Phoenicia because its sea coast cities of Tyre and Sidon were central to trade with
Babylon and the eastern Mediterranean nations.

So, we can see how the caravans and merchants helped to spread the various gods and
goddesses. As they left each oasis, they would often inscribe, in nearby stone
outcroppings, their petitions to the gods for protection. If one of their friends had good
results with Allah or Enlil, they would quickly abandon their own homeland gods in favor
of the one who performed best, especially if they were moving through that god's home
territory. These graffiti epigraphs in stone are a literal road map of the migration of
cultures, peoples, and their gods in the Middle East.

In passing, it is important to see that the Semitic and Hamitic peoples of the Middle East
would change gods easily. If a new god worked better for friends, or if one moved into
another god's territory, one would simply start praying to the resident god nearby. This, as
I see it, was what Muhammed did in choosing Allah from the Kaaba. He weighed the
various gods of the 360 gods in the Kaaba, and Muhammed decided that Allah was the
primal and universal god. This chapter of my book is showing you why Allah prevailed.
He deserved it, for he had survived the longest, and he had come the farthest to get to
Mecca. Muhammed made a very wise political choice. But, to say that Allah is
preexistent and the same god as Jehovah is absurd. Elohim, or Jehovah, was not found
outside of Israel, no was he in the Kaaba. If Muhammed wanted to honor Elohim, he
could have easily chosen him as the god of Islam. Muhammed rejected Elohim because
the Kouraish tribe of Mecca would have never submitted to a god they never heard of.
Allah they knew, and that is why he was exalted by Muhammed-- politics.

Zinj rebellion

(AD 869-883), A black-slave revolt against the 'Abbasid caliphal empire. A number
of Basran landowners had brought several thousand East African blacks (Zinj) into
southern Iraq to drain the salt marshes east of Basra. The landowners subjected the
Zanj, who generally spoke no Arabic, to heavy slave labour and provided them with
only minimal subsistence.

In September 869, 'Ali ibn Muhammad, a Persian claiming descent from 'Ali, the
fourth caliph, and Fatima, Muhammad's daughter, gained the support of several
slave-work crews--which could number from 500 to 5,000 men--by pointing out the
injustice of their social position and promising them freedom and wealth. 'Ali's
offers became even more attractive with his subsequent adoption of a Kharijite
religious stance: anyone, even a black slave, could be elected caliph, and all non-
Kharijites were infidels threatened by a holy war.

Zanj forces grew rapidly in size and power, absorbing the well-trained black
contingents that defected from the defeated caliphal armies, along with some
disaffected local peasantry. In October 869 they defeated a Basran force, and soon
afterward a Zinj capital, al-Mukhtarah (Arabic: the Chosen), was built on an
inaccessible dry spot in the salt flats, surrounded by canals. The rebels gained
control of southern Iraq by capturing al-Ubullah (June 870), a seaport on the
Persian Gulf, and cutting communications to Basra, then seized Ahwaz in
southwestern Iran. The caliphal armies, now entrusted to al-Muwaffaq, a brother of
the new caliph, al-Mu'tamid (reigned 870-892), still could not cope with the rebels.
The Zinj sacked Basra in September 871, and subsequently defeated al-Muwaffaq
himself in April 872.

Between 872 and 879, while al-Muwaffaq was occupied in eastern Iran with the
expansion of the Saffarids, an independent Persian dynasty, the Zinj seized Wasit
(878) and established themselves in Khuzistan, Iran. In 879, however, al-Muwaffaq
organized a major offensive against the black slaves. Within a year, the second Zinj
city, al-Mani'ah (The Impregnable), was taken. The rebels were next expelled from
Khuzistan, and, in the spring of 881, al-Muwaffaq laid siege to al-Mukhtarah from a
special city built on the other side of the Tigris River. Two years later, in August 883,
reinforced by Egyptian troops, al-Muwaffaq finally crushed the rebellion,
conquering the city and returning to Baghdad with 'Ali's head.
The principle of trade migration appears to me to have moved the gods around even more
than the gleaning of gods from conquests of war. A merchant of Dilmun (on the Arabian
side of the Persian Gulf near present day Bahrain) might go north to Nineveh to trade and
end up carrying his merchandise south to Oman and on to East Africa or Yemen by
dhow-- the Arab sailing ship. (See map on page 127)

The whole area was ruled by the Sultan of Oman in about 800 AD, in fact, the
Sultan moved to the Zinj, East Africa, for many years because he preferred the
climate there better than that of Oman. Zinj, East Africans, had a temporary empire
of sorts at the head of the Persian Gulf circa 865 AD.

Map of the ancient Arab trade routes

It is one of these dhows that the Apostle Paul sailed in when he took a ship "from
Adramyttium" (Acts 27:2) which is the Greek word for the Hadhramaut in South Arabia.
In order for that Arab ship to be in the Mediterranean, it would have been rolled on logs
through a wadi (desert valley) between the Red sea and the Nile river, then floated down
the Nile to the Mediterranean!

In fact, some historians believe the Arabs were the first to circumnavigate Africa. The
Arab dhow is almost as romantic a symbol as the camel to the wandering Arab, but
Hollywood missed that fact, so most Westerners don't even know that the dhow is one of
the most sea worthy ships ever used. Arab merchants have always been fearless nomadic
merchants of the seas, but, being superstitious and often at great risk, they had a
weakness for collecting gods whom they imagined would protect them. Thus, the gods
got a free ride, not the least of them, LIL or Allah.
There are several long bridges which link Mecca with the ancient past. Taken alone, they
are enough to prove that Allah came from Nimrod's pagan Sumer, but we make the
detailed hajj, or pilgrimage, to prove beyond any doubt the point of this chapter.

But, let us look at one long bridge as reported by Hitti. He shows that the Arabs of Saba
in South Arabia inscribed HLH in some of their inscriptions for the high god. With the
vowels supplied, this becomes Hallah, and later, Allah. Hitti reports that this inscription
was also found in the Lihyan inscriptions in North Arabia, and he says that its origin was
Assyria. (FOOTNOTE 72: 65 / 100-101 / 21) This would certainly mean that Allah and
Ba'al of ancient Assyria and Phoenicia carried the same divine heritage from ENLIL / IL
and survived into recent Arabia, indeed to the Indian ocean and Zanzibar.

Hitti's observation that HLH / Hallah, or Allah, was the high god of Saba blows the
"Allah was a moon god" notion out of the water. Wadd was the moon god of Saba, as we
will see later in this chapter. He was a serpent and phallic god most likely, and he was a
flunky god who never got anywhere, especially not to Mecca. So Robert Morey's claims
missed Hitti's discoveries, by ignorance or by design, for Morey never learned that Allah
made it to Saba and prevailed. If the Sabaeans made the error of confusing the solar
heritage of Allah with lunar heritage of Wadd, that was a local conundrum, not the norm
all over the Middle East. The allaged Sabaean lunarizing of Allah was certainly not the
norm in Mecca where the Lady God Allat was the moon goddess and wife of Allah.
Saying Allah is the moon god because the Sabaeans thought he was would be like saying
that Emperor Heile Salassia is god because the Rastafarians of Jamaica think he is.

Moving on south to Jawf, which is south of Phoenicia and near the Lihyan Arabs, in
about 500 to 700 BC, we find the name Allah and his consort, Allat, beseeched for mercy
in travel. This was carved into the rocks along the trade routes. Also, Zayd'il and Hamilat
(note the IL root) are god and goddess innovations which change the prefixed name but
retain the masculine and feminine forms of deity. (FOOTNOTE 73: 172 / 79-78 / 243-
245) These two migration points, on the great trade route, lie midway between Phoenicia
and North Arabia and complete the Phoenician picture. So, we now have Allah all the
way around the corner and into what is today the nation of Jordan. That takes us to our
next destination.

North Arabia

We have already entered North Arabia in discussing the area of Jawf. Also included in
North Arabia are such locations as Dumah, Dedan, Taima, Petra, Safa, and even Palmyra
on the north since the Arabs dominated it for most of its history. The language groups
which figure in the inscription evidence are from the period circa 1000-500 BC and are,
Taymanite, Jawfian, Nabataean, Dedanite, Lihyanite, Najdi, Hijazi, and Tabuki. These are
all Semitic languages from which modern Arabic evolved. In discussing the inscriptions
of this area and time, I will not give all of the details as to the dialect or location, but you
may have my detailed data for the asking (and for some cost for time and materials).
The Nabataeans are perhaps the most famous of the Northern Arabs. They carry the name
of Ishmael's eldest son, Bible, Genesis 25:13, And these are the names of the sons of
Ishmael, by their names, according to their generations: the firstborn of Ishmael,
Nebajoth; and Kedar, and Adbeel, and Mibsam... Nebajoth will also figure in the
coming 1000 year kingdom of Messiah as Arabs come up to worship at the altar of
Messiah Christ. Bible, Isaiah 60:7, All the flocks of Kedar shall be gathered together
unto thee, the rams of Nebaioth shall minister unto thee: they shall come up with
acceptance on mine altar, and I will glorify the house of my glory.

I feel sorry for some alleged scholars who think there is no physical Messianic kingdom
coming. They must have quite a time with the above text since it has not yet happened.
God is a liar if Messiah Christ never sets up His literal kingdom on earth, and let us have
none of this rubbish about some faint concealed event in past history. God performs His
mighty acts in plain view, especially in the case of Arabs bringing animals to sacrifice on
the altar of Jehovah in Jerusalem.

There is a recent PhD (piled higher and deeper) who claims that the Arabs of today are
not the descendants of Ishmael. This is cheap academic racism, and it is especially ugly
when it comes from a man who claims to honor the God of the Bible! Where will God get
Ishmaelites in his coming kingdom (Isaiah 60)? Create more? Get used to it sir-- God has
His hand on the Arab people just as He does with the Jews. Isaac (Israel) He preserves for
the covenant, and Ishmael (the Arabs) will be restored to fellowship with his half brother,
Isaac, in fulfillment of the promise God made to His friend Abraham.

Bible, Genesis 17:18-20, And Abraham said unto God, O that Ishmael might live
before thee! And God said, Sarah thy wife shall bear thee a son indeed; and thou
shalt call his name Isaac: and I will establish my covenant with him for an
everlasting covenant, and with his seed after him. And as for Ishmael, I have heard
thee: Behold, I have blessed him, and will make him fruitful, and will multiply him
exceedingly; twelve princes shall he beget, and I will make him a great nation.

It amazes me when a so-called "scholar" can dismiss a prophetic truth, like the one above,
by making a statement that boldly disagrees with our sovereign God's designs. What is
"scholarship" anyway? Is one immune from submitting to God if he has earned a PhD?
Must God and all of history say, "By your leave, sir?" I think not.

I feel much better now that I thumped the above "scholar," so let us return to North
Arabia. The Nabataeans had open-air sanctuaries to worship Dushara who, you will
recall, was the god of Phoenicia. Dushara migrated to North Arabia as well as to Crete
and Greece. The temples to him had niches carved out of solid stone, furnished with
lamps, into which the worshipper entered to pray. The parallel in more recent times
would be the Ethiopian Coptic churches at Lallibela which are also carved from solid
rock.

In Nabataea the goddess consorts of Dushara were Manat and Allat, both of whom turn
up later in the Koran, Sura 53 (the "Satanic Verses"), which was briefly added by
Muhammed. Thus, we see the LIL root in Allat (Al-ILAT) was present in that area. To
reinforce other engravings in North Arabia, in nearby Dhu-Ghabat many gods and
goddess were engraved in the stones, including Allah, Allat, Manat, and Al-Uzza.

Allat cannot be cast aside, for her name was used alone and in combination with other
local deities to form local hybrids. The Nabataeans did this casually, and the following
quote proves this:

There is some evidence that the Arabians of Herodotus are to be associated with the
Qedarites. An Aramaic inscription discovered on a silver bowl at Tell el-Maskuta in
Egypt and dated at the end of the fifth century BC refers to Qaynu son of Gashmu, king
of Qedar, as making an offering to the deity Han-'Ilat. (William J. Dumbrell, 'The Tell
el'Maskhuta Bowls and the Kingdom of Qedar in the Persian Period, SASOR 203, 1971,
33-44, and Winnett-Reed, ARNA, 116.) Han stands as the determinative prefix of 'Ilat,
which is the feminine form of "il making Han'Illat in Arbaic 'Al,'Ilahat, which is
contracted into 'Allat' meaning 'the goddess.' (Joseph T Milik, Origine des Nabateens, in
Studies in the History and Archeology of Jordan, vol 1 ec. Adnan Hadidi, (Amman,
Jordan, Department of Antiquities 1982, 261-265).

In passing, I want to tell you about a stone cylinder in Dedan that was twelve feet high
and seven feet deep. Arab legend says it was the milking pail of the Arab prophet Salih.
His miraculous camel could fill the stone pail when milked, but the sorrow came when
the camel took a drink-- she drained all the springs and wells in the area. Life is never
dull in the Arabian desert! Indeed, there is a moral to the story, but I shall leave that to
you.

Copper coins, rubbed blue stone, slag from refineries, and alabaster fragments show that
the northern Arabs were not backward. (FOOTNOTE 74: 172 / 39, 50, 71-72 / 234-238)
These also show that they traded far and wide to get the raw materials of commerce of
their day. Again, this suggests how Allah, the LIL namesake, arrived in North Arabia by
caravan from all over the Middle East.

A unique twist in North Arabian Nabataean culture was the place of the queens who ruled
them. (By contrast, Arab men today have completely subjected their women, especially in
Islam.) Many of these ancient queens were named after Ishtar, and Atarsamain (Star of
Satan), a Babylonian goddess who enjoyed the high ground with a temple exclusively
dedicated to her.

Esarhaddon, circa 670 BC, tried to curry favor with North Arabia by having a red-gold
star, decorated with precious stones, sent to their temple. This was the symbol of Al-Uzza
who was the Arab equal of Venus. (FOOTNOTE 75: See footnote 74, author's p. 72 /
237) Esarhaddon was theologically clever, for Al-Uzza, being the star (Venus was a star
to these people), would compliment Atarsamain nicely. Ecumenism was not invented by
Vatican II, dear reader. I point this out to show that, though Allah was very common in
the names of men in the area, he was losing the high ground to the ladies.

This explains why we find him a neglected generic god in the Kaaba by 600 AD, and it is
why Muhammed chose him as the god of Islam. Allah was a general blessing, but nobody
felt very strongly about him. It is interesting that this is just how the Muslim feels about
Allah today-- he is mighty, all-knowing, but not very personal. In fact, Islam is much
more sentimental and sensitive over Muhammed or some recent mystic than with Allah.
This was already the case by 500 BC in Northern Arabia.

Now, come with me to look at the rocks. It is in these inscriptions in stone near many of
the oases that we find the name of Allah and Allat, the LIL heritage of the god and
goddess of Sumer. Remember also that we are looking at inscriptions derived from the
ancient god Enlil. But what is astounding is that in north Arabia, they are 3000 years
removed from the origin of Enlil, god of Sumer.

Also, the following inscriptions are only 700 years away from the appearing of
Muhammed in Mecca, which is about 300 miles south of our present position. As we look
for Allah's name in the rocks of North Arabia, he is nearing the end of his Hajj! I intend
to show you that he certainly did come this way, and I remind you that Elohim, the God
of the Bible, never migrated outside of Israel after Abraham moved there from Haran.
Only Allah, and his goddess consort Allat, migrated to Mecca from pagan Sumer.

In looking at the inscriptions in North Arabia, we must keep in mind that they were
written over a period of about 1000 years, so the most recent inscriptions date as late as
50 AD. The earliest inscriptions date from about 700 BC. You must understand that these
inscriptions were carved in stone, so the old ones did not waste away with time, and the
later ones were added and added until some of the stones outside of these oases were
totally covered with prayers to the gods.

Only the consonants will be given in the actual inscription since Semitic languages do not
write the vowels. They were supplied by the reader, which is still true of Arabic, Ethiopic
languages, and Hebrew.

The following list shows a handful of examples among many. Winnett claims to have
over 60 examples of names with LIL or Allah in inscriptions he alone has deciphered. He
suggests a complete list is found in Le Nabateen by Cantineau. Also, James Hastings
reports that, in inscriptions at Safa, there were two uses of the LIL forms.

Here is our chart of the inscriptions from the rocks:

Please notice the ancient form which was used in the writer's name as we saw above. To
be used in the names of the people, a god had to be very well established and respected
over a long period. A current example of this surname-god association is in the name
Jésus (pronounced Hay'suus) in Mexico. It would be inconceivable to assume that
Mexico was ever Buddhist by looking at all the Jésuses in the Mexico City phone book.
Thus Allah was secure in the names of the gods of Arabia from 700 BC to 50 AD in
Nabatea, but to show that Allah, or IL, and Allat, had been around for a very long time
already, they were honored in many Arab personal names.

James Hastings also asserts that in times of great stress, or pleadings, the Northern Arabs
used the god-form, FHLH, which meant, "so, O Allah." The goddess form used just as
often was FHLT which meant, "so, O Allat." This shows that Allah was well established
in North Arabia and that he had a consort, or lady friend of high esteem, named Allat.
Hastings also reports that ILAHA was used for the sun god. This shows that Allah
was the sun god figure and Allat was the moon goddess, which again debunks the recent
notion that Allah was a seventh-century solar deity in Mecca To read our discussion of
Robert Morey's ridiculous claims that Allah was the moon god,

In his Semitic Mythology, Langdon indicates that Allat was the high goddess of choice,
even more than Allah. In Safatic inscriptions of Hauran, she was referred to as Alilat,
Alitta, Hallat, or by her Babylonian title, Allitu. In South Arabia, which we will treat
later, she was ILAT. This shows the linguistic variation caused by migration along the
trade routes going back to Phoenicia, Assyria, Babylon, and Sumer. The Nabataeans
claimed that Allat was the goddess-consort of Dusares, which duplicated the North
Arabian marriage of Tammuz and Ishtar, the Babylonian godhead.
"What does this have to do with Allah?" you ask. Simply this, Allah was the exact
unquestionable linguistic male gender compliment of Allat, with suffix gender
distinctions on the LIL root. The fact that Allat was the consort of Dusares (rather than
Allah), in Phoenicia and North Arabia, simply shows how weak Allah had become in the
pantheon. Let us just say, "Allat was visiting around," and Allah had to wait to get her
back until they moved on to Mecca where the Meccan pre-Islamic religious leaders
remarried Allat to Allah. Muhammed honored this in the Satanic Verses. It wouldn't be
the first time a man moved in order to get his wife to come back to him.

SIDE NOTE: Was Allah the moon god of Mecca, as some allege? Answer: Wadd was the
only moon god to the Arabs, and he never made it to Mecca. In our zeal to expose Islam,
we need not invent exciting notions to hold our reader's attention when the truth is carved
in stone in North Arabia and all over the Middle East! Some books are thrown together in
a hurry to coincide with the latest ravings of the wild man of Baghdad. It sells books, but
the truth is easily butchered. I hope the massive bibliography of this book you are reading
will convince you that it couldn't have been thrown together in a few days in order to
coincide with some terrifying events in the Middle East. Robert Morey's book is very
light on bibliography, and he does NOT prove that Allah is the moon god-- he just says it,
and Jack Chick distributed it. Jack knew my book was coming, but he would not wait.
Islamic Invasion is vastly less believable than Mother Goose because it was not
researched well. In fact, a smart Mullah will one day see Morey's folly and use it to prove
that Allah and Jehovah are one and the same. I refuse to discuss how, but I fear it will
happen soon.

Yemenites, circa 3 BC, built a temple of Wadd on the Greek Island of Delos! Wadd got
around, but he was the only moon god, unless we let Sin in, who was a moon god, but
never in the evolution of the pantheon from Sumer, home of Allah and Allat.

The Islamic notion of monotheism attached to Allah is not present in North Arabian
inscriptions. Winnett, in an article for The Moslem World, gives a number of inscription
quotes, including Allah, Allat, Dhu-Ghabat, Nahy, with Manat and LIL, coming up
frequently in names of the writers. In one inscription Allah is asked to send the Jinn
(devils) to aid the writer. Vengeance is called for from Allah on other men competing for
the lover of the writer. Please don't think lightly of these writers. They were carving their
zeal in stone with metal instruments, and that takes a serious mind and some time. It is a
vastly greater undertaking than carving ones initials in tree bark.

Winnett shows that common to Allah in the inscriptions is the attribute, "abtar" or
"childless." The revelation that Allah had no offspring, which Muhammed claimed in
Koran, Sura 108 and 112, was used by Muhammed as a correction of the Christian
doctrine regarding the Sonship of Jesus Christ. This does not imply that Muhammed
knew a monotheistic god personally. It implies that Muhammed picked Allah, a god who
could not keep a wife, so other gods impregnated Allat, the wife of Allah.

I say, "Sorry Muhammed, old man, but Arab monotheism had its roots in North Arabia
500 years before the birth of Christ, or 1100 years before you climbed into the caves near
Mecca to get your alleged revelations." Though Allah was childless, it is clear that Allah
had a consort named Allat. The original reason they never produced a son is because the
doctrine of pagan Babylon, from which Allah evolved, said that the goddess could
produce a son without being sired by the god in residence. Much later, the North Arabian
reason Allah never had a son was because Allat went to other gods to sire her.

Muhammed's monotheism is a myth. Allah and Allat, along with devils (Jinn) and a
whole community of deities, were happily making their way to Mecca in North Arabia
circa 500 BC. This Hajj of Allah might better be called "the migration of the gods to
Mecca." It was a divine caravan!

Olmstead draws the divine couple together by reporting an inscription at Dedan which
said, "Naamil (note the IL root), son of Hafraz. Allah is exalted." From Tema comes
another voice blasting the inferior god, "Salm is a mean god" and, "A foul god is Salm."
Olmstead then associates Allah with the gods reported by Herodotus-- Dionysus, Alilat,
and Orotalt. Alilat is Allat, the consort of Allah. It is interesting to note that a Dedanite
inscription makes reference to Geshmu the Arab, Nehemiah's opponent. This is the kind
of historic cross reference which is glaringly missing in the Koran.

Muhammed was terrified of the Allah / Allat connection. He allowed the family to exist
momentarily, by way of the "Satanic verses" in Sura 53, but he saw at once that he could
not counterfeit Christianity and win the Jews with an earthly physical family for the
Islamic godhead. The Jews in Medina liked Muhammed's monotheism, so Allah had to be
divorced from Allat for the Jews to go for the new cult. It worked too, for a while, as the
Jews at first like Muhammed.

The doctrine of the eternal Sonship of The Lord Jesus Christ is not based upon physical
activity since, as Jesus said in the Bible, Matthew 22:30, "For in the resurrection they
neither marry, nor are given in marriage, but are as the angels of God in heaven."

Muhammed refused to live by faith, so he could not understand how Elohim could have a
Son who was eternally OF God but not physically sired BY God. In this, Muhammed and
Joseph Smith of the Mormons, are alike. They both believed that all sons are produced in
the physical marriage bed. This is the result of reducing the divine to our small human
imaginations.

So, we have now determined that Allah made the journey in good health all the way from
Sumer to Northern Arabia. It is clear that Allah's Hajj has been a great success, because
the rest of the journey to Mecca, and Allah's role in the advent of Islam in 625 AD, is
written history. Muhammed claimed he found Allah in the Kaaba after he threw out all of
the other pagan gods. Let's take his word for it.

Haji Allah is the pagan god who survived best and who deserves the distinction. After
all, he migrated over a period of 3500 years and 2000 miles from Nimrod's Babel to
Mecca. It is now clear that Muhammed's claim to a heritage in Elohim is the most
exquisite of blasphemies. Elohim, who never had a wife, could not possibly be the Allah
of North Arabia, the god who was frequently abandoned when the goddesses looked for a
new divine consort.

(Credit where credit is due. From now on we will frequently refer to Allah as "Haji
Allah." This is in recognition of his making the first Hajj, or pilgrimage, from Babylon to
Mecca. Any Muslim today, who makes the required pilgrimage to Mecca, will add the
title "Haji" to his name.)

Allah is the god of Islam. Allat was its goddess, if only for a few weeks and by courtesy
of Satan, until Muhammed dropped her from godhead (Sura 53, "Satanic Verses"). I have
just given you a fraction of the bibliographical material (mine alone consists of 4000
pages from nearly 300 authors) to support this historic picture, which is available upon
request and for a price.

You will remember that I said that Allah came by another route to Mecca. Since he was a
legend rather than a real god he traveled the trade routes in all directions. Come, let us
start over and follow Haji Allah as he traveled to Mecca by the southern route. Many
Iranian and Indian Muslims follow this route today as they make their Haj to Mecca in
the very footprints of Allah.
