1. The Quraish
were the foremost tribe in Mecca. They were the custodians of the Kaabah
which contained 365 idols. Muhammad is from this tribe and his father served
in this shrine as well. His father’s name Abdullah means “a slave of Allah.”
To say that Allah is the same as god Almighty, this chapter reveals
otherwise. While serving idols in pre-Islamic Arabia, he was called the
slave of Allah. The Arabs were a people whom according to the Qur’an had not
had their own prophet before the coming of Muhammad, which means they could
not have known the true God, who is the Creator of all things. Allah is not
the same as God Almighty.
