Moslemism

From old Christadelphian writings

Moslemism, Mohammedanism, Islamism, are all names for the religion founded by Mahomet (Mohammed) at the beginning of the seventh century

Jabal al-Nour, the Mountain of Light, is a mountain near Mecca in the Hejazi region of Saudi Arabia, where one can find the grotto or cave of Hira which holds tremendous significance for Muslims throughout the world, as the Islamic Nabī (Prophet) Muhammad is said to have spent time in this cave meditating, and it is widely believed that it was here that he received his first revelation, which consisted of the first five ayats of Surah Al-Alaq from the angel Jibra’il (as is pronounced in certain Quran recitation schools and some Arab tribes; also known as Gabriel)

Mahomet’s battle-cry, first heralded from the cave at Hira, was:

“There is no Deity but God, and Mohammed is the Messenger of God”.

He was opposed by the chiefs of Mecca, and had to flee to Medina; from which time success attended all his efforts, and when he died, in 632 A.D., all Arabia acknowledged his spiritual and temporal supremacy.

Mahomet himself was no writer; the book called the “Koran”, which contains the creed of the Moslems, was compiled after his death. The uprise and down-fall of Moslemism is vividly foretold in symbolism by the Lord Jesus, in the Book of Revelation, chapter ix.

The Moslems at the present time number about 170,000,000.
