A crescent moon sits on top of their mosques. A crescent moon is found on the flags of Islamic nations? Muslims even fast during the month which begins and ends with the appearance of the crescent moon in the sky?
In ancient Syria and Canna, the Moon-god Sin was usually represented by the moon in its crescent phase. Oftentimes the full moon was placed inside the crescent moon to emphasize all the phases of the moon.
"Take ye therefore good heed unto yourselves; for ye saw no manner of similitude on the day that the LORD spake unto you in Horeb out of the midst of the fire:Lest ye corrupt yourselves, and make you a graven image, the similitude of any figure, the likeness of male or female... And lest thou lift up thine eyes unto heaven, and when thou seest the sun, and the moon, and the stars, even all the host of heaven, shouldest be driven to worship them, and serve them, which the LORD thy God hath divided unto all nations under the whole heaven" (Deuteronomy 4:9-19).
Fiqh-us-Sunnah which was written by Sayyid Saabiq (1915-2000 C.E.) is sort of an explanation of Islamic law. Every Fiqh ruling in the book goes back to the Qur’an and Sunnah and in the Fiqh-us-Sunnah it explains that muslims are to burn incense inside the mosque to (among other things) purify it.
In Persia (modern Iran), as well as in Egypt, the Moon-god is depicted on wall murals and on the heads of statues. In Ur (the country God called Abraham OUT OF), the Stela of Ur-Nammu has the crescent symbol placed at the top of the register of gods because the Moon-god was the head of the gods. Ur of the Chaldees was so devoted to the Moon-god that it was sometimes called Nannar in tablets from that time period. Bread was even baked in the form of a crescent as an act of devotion to the Moon-god.

The temple of the Moon-god was active even in the Christian era. Evidence gathered from North and South Arabia show that worship of the Moon-god was still very active even in Muhammad's day and was still the dominant cult.
Why did Mohammaed assume that the pagan Arabs already knew who
Mohammaed grew up in the cult of the Moon-god
Mohammed then had it both ways. To the pagans, he said that he still believed in the Moon-god
Al-Kindi, one of the early Christian apologists against Islam, pointed out that Islam and its god
Islam proved itself to be...a separate and antagonistic religion which had "sprung up from idolatry."
Why the moon? A crescent moon sits on top of their mosques. A crescent moon is found on the flags of Islamic nations? Muslims even fast during the month which begins and ends with the appearance of the crescent moon in the sky?
THE CONCLUSION OF THE MATTER: The pagan Arabs worshiped the Moon-god
The Muslim's claim that
Islam is nothing more than a revival of the ancient Moon-god cult. It has taken the symbols, the rites, the ceremonies, and even the name of its god from the ancient pagan religion of the Moon-god.
As such, it is sheer idolatry and must be rejected by all those who follow the Torah(commandments) and the Gospel.
