The idolatry among many Muslims at the present time
Muslims have fallen in the idolatry, which is the worship of tombs
of the imams and sheikhs, and they exaggerated in their love for the imams and the Prophet himself.. so that they repeated the mistake of the past nations of Jews and Christians (while the present Christians and Jews most of them are atheists and the religious among them are idolatrous in addition to their denial of Jesus Christ and Prophet Mohammed.)
some mistakes of Muslims like the mistakes of Jews
God – be glorified – said in the Book of Leviticus, chapter 26: 1
"I am the Lord your God. You shall make for yourselves no idols
], neither shall you raise up an engraved image
] or a pillar
] , neither shall you place any figured stone
] in your land, to bow down to it: for I am the Lord your God."
] The "idol"
: is a high round building ascribed to one of the alleged false gods or to one of the saints or imams,
like the "Maqam" of the present time: e.g. the Maqam of Khidhir
or Maqam of Sadiq
] The "engraved images
": are the statues of created beings, like those erected by Christians: e.g. the statues of Mary and Jesus
, the cross
and similar things.
] The "pillars"
: are some protuberant stones hanged on the wall or erected over it; as a symbol for some alleged false gods or kings or others; e.g. A stone at Qadam Gah in Iran
: which people visit and kiss.
] The "figured stones" or “remarkable stones”
: There is a large number of such figured stones in the shrines of imams, sheikhs and saints
. Nowadays, a large number of people kiss such stones and sanctify them.
This is explained by Mohammed-Ali Hassan Al-Hilly:
