The mere fact Christian apologetics is littered with dubious folk prone to dishonesty and blunder leads us to believe the task of educating folk about Christianity and Islam should not be left solely in the hands of Christians.
Here is a case in point, recently we observed a young Christian apologist simply making stuff up - he was claiming Allah is Hubal. I kid you not, this bloke was really spouting such balderdash!
Here is a spot of scholarship to educate us on what Hubal actually was.
Hubal – an idol, the god of the moon. Centuries before Islam, Amr ibn Luhayy, a chief of the tribe of Jurhum who dwelt in Mecca before the coming of the Quraysh tribe, brought the idol to the city from Syria. It was set up in the Ka’bah and became the principal idol of the pagan Meccans. The ritual casting of lots and divining arrows was performed in front of it.
Hubal was pulled down and used as a doorstep when the Prophet conquered Mecca and purified the Ka’bah.
