Celebrating Fiesta For The Saints, Eating and Drinking Wine, And Procession Of Holy Statues Are Biblical

Christian rebels keep accusing and even ridiculing the Catholics for carrying holy statues and marching in a festival procession to the altar while singing and dancing. They also criticize the Catholics for celebrating fiestas for the Saints, eating, and drinking during this occasion. But are these practices going against the teaching of God? Let us check the Bible;

1. The Israelites went in procession, carrying holy statues (Ark of the Lord) to the altar (church) 

[Psalm 118:27] The LORD is God, and he has given us light. March in a festival procession with branches to the horns of the altar.

[Psalm 42:4] I will remember these things as I pour out my soul: how I used to walk with the crowd and lead it in a procession to God’s house. [I sang] songs of joy and thanksgiving while crowds of people celebrated a festival.

2. David danced before the Ark of the Lord with all his might

[2 Samuel 6:12-15] So David went and had the ark of God brought up from the house of Obed-edom into the City of David with rejoicing. When those carrying the ark of the LORD had advanced six paces, he sacrificed an ox and a fattened calf. And David, wearing a linen ephod, danced with all his might before the LORD, while he and all the house of Israel brought up the ark of the LORD with shouting and the sounding of the ram’s horn. 

COMMENT: What David and all the house of Israel were doing is comparable to Sinulog, where people are carrying holy statues with dancing, shouting, and blowing wind instruments.   

3. God’s people held feasts, and they ate and drank

[Genesis 21:8] “Isaac grew, and on the day of the child’s weaning, Abraham held a great feast.”

[Genesis 26:30] So Isaac prepared a feast for them, and they ate and drank.

[Esther 9:19] So to this day, rural Jews living in remote villages celebrate an annual festival and holiday on the appointed day in late winter, when they rejoice and send gifts of food to each other.

[2 Kings 6:23] So he prepared a great feast for them, and after they had finished eating and drinking, he sent them away, and they returned to their master. So the bands from Aram stopped raiding Israel’s territory.

[2 Chronicles 30:13] A very large crowd of people assembled in Jerusalem to celebrate the Festival of Unleavened Bread in the second month.

[2 Chronicles 30:21] So the people of Israel who were present in Jerusalem joyously celebrated the Festival of Unleavened Bread for seven days. Each day the Levites and priests sang to the LORD, accompanied by loud instruments.

[John 5:1] “Some time later, Jesus went up to Jerusalem for a feast of the Jews.”

[Colossians 2:16-17] “Therefore do not let anyone condemn you in matters of food and drink, or of observing festivals, new moons, or sabbaths.”

4. God urges his people to celebrate, eat, and drink wine 

[Exodus 12:14] “This day shall be a memorial feast for you, which all your generations shall celebrate with pilgrimage to the LORD, as a perpetual institution.”

[Numbers 6:20] The priest shall then wave them as a wave offering before the LORD. This is a holy portion for the priest, in addition to the breast of the wave offering and the thigh that was presented. After that, the Nazirite may drink wine

[Deuteronomy 16:14] “You must rejoice at your feast, you, your son and your daughter, your serving men and women, the Levite, the foreigner, the orphan and the widow living in your community.”

[Esther 9:22] “he told them to celebrate these days with feasting and gladness and by giving gifts to each other and to the poor. this would commemorate a time when the jews gained relief from their enemies, when their sorrow was turned into gladness and their mourning into joy.”

[Isaiah 55:1] “Everyone who thirsts, come to the waters; And you who have no money come, buy grain and eat. Come, buy wine and milk Without money and without cost

[Ecclesiastes 2:24] Nothing is better for a man than to eat and drink and enjoy his work. I have also seen that this is from the hand of God.

[Ecclesiastes 8:15] So I commended the enjoyment of life, because there is nothing better for a man under the sun than to eat and drink and be merry. For this joy will accompany him in his labor during the days of his life that God gives him under the sun.

[Ecclesiastes 9:7] Go thy way, eat thy bread with joy, and drink your wine with a merry heart; for God now accepted thy works. 

[Amos 9:14-15] I will restore My people Israel from captivity; they will rebuild and inhabit the ruined cities. They will plant vineyards and drink their wine; they will make gardens and eat their fruit. I will firmly plant them in their own land, never again to be uprooted from the land that I have given them,” says the LORD your God.

[Nahum 2:1] “To Judah See on the mountains the feet of the herald! ‘Peace!’ he proclaims. Judah, celebrate your feasts, carry out your vows, for Belial will never pass through you again; he has been utterly destroyed”

[John 2:7-9] Jesus said to the servants, “Fill the jars with water.” And they filled them up to the brim. And he said to them, “Now draw some out and take it to the master of the feast.” So they took it. When the master of the feast tasted the water now become wine, and did not know where it came from (though the servants who had drawn the water knew), the master of the feast called the bridegroom 

5. God will hold a feast for all Saints or holy people in His kingdom 

[Isaiah 25:6] In Jerusalem, the LORD of Heaven’s Armies will spread a wonderful feast for all the people of the world. It will be a delicious banquet with clear, well-aged wine and choice meat.

[Jeremiah 31:12] They will come and shout for joy on the heights of Zion; they will be radiant over the bounty of the LORD–the grain, new wine, and oil, and the young of the flocks and herds. Their life will be like a well-watered garden, and never again will they languish

[Matthew 8:11] And I tell you this, that many Gentiles will come from all over the world—from east and west—and sit down with Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob at the feast in the Kingdom of Heaven.

[Matthew 26:29] I tell you, I will not drink of this fruit of the vine from now on until that day when I drink it anew with you in My Father’s kingdom.”

[Luke 13:29] They will come from east and west, from north and south, to share the banquet in the kingdom of God.

[Luke 14:15] When one of those at the table with him heard this, he said to Jesus, “blessed is the man who will eat at the feast in the kingdom of God.”

[Luke 22:28-30] “You have stayed with me in my time of trial. And just as my Father has granted me a Kingdom, I now grant you the right to eat and drink at my table in my Kingdom. And you will sit on thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel. 

[Hebrews 12:22] Instead, you have come to Mount Zion, to the city of the living God (the heavenly Jerusalem), to myriads of angels, a festive gathering, 

CONCLUSION: Celebrating fiesta for the saints, eating and drinking wine, and procession of holy statues are biblical. What is forbidden is that when you eat and drink wine too much. 

[Deuteronomy 21:20] The parents must say to the elders, ‘This son of ours is stubborn and rebellious and refuses to obey. He is a glutton and a drunkard.’

[Proverbs 23:20] Do not join those who drink too much wine or gorge themselves on meat,

[1 Corinthians 5:11] But now I am writing to you that you must not associate with anyone who claims to be a brother or sister but is sexually immoral or greedy, an idolater or slanderer, a drunkard or swindler. Do not even eat with such people.

[1 Corinthians 6:10] nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God.

Muhammad Was Inspired By Satan According To Islamic Scriptures

A.) The Divine Inspiration Resembles To The Sound Of A Ringing Bell

[Sahih Al-Bukhari: Vol. 4, Book 54, Hadith no. 438]

“Narrated Aisha:Al Harith bin Hisham asked the Prophet, “How does the divine inspiration come to you?” He replied, “In all these ways: The Angel sometimes comes to me with a voice which resembles the sound of a ringing bell, and when this state abandons me, I remember what the Angel has said, and this type of Divine Inspiration is the hardest on me; and sometimes the Angel comes to me in the shape of a man and talks to me, and I understand and remember what he says.”

B.) According To Muhammad There Is A Devil In The Bell

[Sunaan Abu Dawud: Book 34, Hadith no. 4218]

The Apostle of Allah said: “Women cannot wear bells on their legs. There is a devil along with each bell.”

C.) Satan Revealed Qurans To Muhammad

1. [Umdah al-Ahkam: Vol. 3, Hadith no. 460]

“Narrated by Anas Ibn Malik “I heard from the Apostle of Allah (Peace and blessing be upon him) that he said “Allah was Satan in the form of an angel that revealed to me the verses and his book the Quran and I’ am his prophet 

رواه أنس ابن مالك “سمعت من رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم أنه” كان الله شيطان في شكل ملاك كشف لي الآيات وكتابه القرآن وأنا نبي 

2. [The Life of Muhammad: A Translation of Ibn Ishaq’s Sirat Rasul Allah, with introduction and notes by Alfred Guillaume [Oxford University Press, Karachi, Tenth impression 1995], pp. 165-167]

“. . . Then God sent down the revelation. ‘By the star when it sets! Your companion has not erred or gone astray, and does not speak from mere fancy…’ (Quran 53:1) When he reached God’s words, “Have you seen al-Lāt and al-‘Uzzā and Manāt, the third, the other?’ (Quran 53:19-20) Satan cast upon his tongue, because of what he had pondered in himself and longed to bring to his people, ‘These are the high-flying cranes and their intercession is to be hoped for.’

When Quraysh heard that, they rejoiced. What he had said about their gods pleased and delighted them, and they gave ear to him. The Believers trusted in their prophet with respect to what he brought them from their Lord: they did not suspect any slip, delusion or error. When he came to the prostration and finished the chapter, he prostrated and the Muslims followed their prophet in it, having faith in what he brought them and obeying his command. Those mushrikūn of Quraysh and others who were in the mosque also prostrated on account of what they had heard him say about their gods. In the whole mosque there was no believer or kāfir who did not prostrate. Only al-Walīd bin al-Mughīra, who was an aged shaykh and could not make prostration, scooped up in his hand some of the soil from the valley of Mecca [and pressed it to his forehead]. Then everybody dispersed from the mosque.

Quraysh went out and were delighted by what they had heard of the way in which he spoke of their gods. They were saying, ‘Muhammad has referred to our gods most favourably. In what he has recited he said that they are “high-flying cranes whose intercession is to be hoped for”.

Those followers of the Prophet who had emigrated to the land of Abyssinia heard about the affair of the prostration, and it was reported to them that Quraysh had accepted Islam. Some men among them decided to return while others remained behind.

Gabriel came to the Prophet and said, ‘O Muhammad, what have you done! You have recited to the people something which I have not brought you from God, and you have spoken what He did not say to you.’ . . . “

3. [Quran 22:52] Never did We send a Messenger or a Prophet before you, but; when he did recite the revelation or narrated or spoke, Shaitan (Satan) threw (some falsehood) in it. But Allah abolishes that which Shaitan (Satan) throws in. Then Allah establishes His Revelations. And Allah is All-Knower, All-Wise: 

COMMENT: The funny thing on this verse is that after Satan was able to put his word into Muhammad’s mouth across Allah’s protection, Allah still claimed shamelessly that he is the all-knower and the all-wise. Likewise, Allah said They abolish the Satanic verses yet they are still in Quran. And how can Allah abolish the Satanic verses spoken by Muhammad which were heard by many? 

D.) Allah Will Marry Qualified Muslims To Dwellers Of Hell 

[Sunan Ibn Majah, Zuhd (Book of Abstinence) 39]

“Abu Umama narrated: “The Messenger of Allah said, ‘Everyone that Allah admits into paradise will be married to 72 wives; two of them are houris and seventy of his inheritance of the [female] dwellers of hell. All of them will have libidinous sex organs and he will have an ever-erect penis” 

COMMENT: The dwellers of Allah’s Jannah can marry and have sex with the dwellers of Hell. This means that Satan and Allah have close relationship, and that Hell and Jannah are sister places

E.) Allah Is The Best Of Deceivers The Same Title Of Satan Described In The Bible 

[Quran 3:54] But they (the Jews) were deceptive, and Allah was deceptive, for Allah is the best of deceivers (Wamakaroo wamakara Allahu waAllahu khayru al-makireena)

[Revelation 12:9] And the great dragon was hurled down—that ancient serpent called the devil and Satan, the deceiver of the whole world. He was hurled to the earth, and his angels with him.

Watch: One of the names of Allah is “the Most Proud One” which is the description of Satan in the bible 

F.) Muhammad Ran Away From Allah Who Possessed A Woman

[Sunan Al Daraqutni Volume 1, page 739]

Narrated by Abdullah Ibn Malik: And I saw a woman possessed by the devil, and the Apostle of Allah (peace and blessing upon him) came to cast out this, and he asked the woman, “who are you?” and she answered, “I am Allah” and he was scared to flee from the woman.

G.) The Lord Of Muhammad’ Is Satan 

[Sahih Bukhari Volume 6, Book 60, Number 475]

Once Allah’s Apostle became sick and could not offer his night prayer (Tahajjud) for two or three nights. Then a lady (the wife of Abu Lahab) came and said, “O Muhammad! I think that your Satan has forsaken you, for I have not seen him with you for two or three nights!” On that Allah revealed: ‘By the fore-noon, and by the night when it darkens, your Lord (O Muhammad) has neither forsaken you, nor hated you.’ (Quran 93.1-3)

H.) Allah Decreed That All Muslims Will Go To Hell

Islam Is Paganism, Muhammad Worshiped Idols Along With the Pagans

1.) ALLAH WAS WORSHIPED BY PAGANS LONG TIME BEFORE MUHAMMAD. ALLAH WAS BELIEVED TO HAVE THREE DAUGHTERS NAMELY, AL-LAT, AL-UZZA, AND MANAT. MUHAMMAD ALSO PROSTRATED TO THESE THREE GODDESSES (QURAN 53:19-20). 

[Excerpt from Wikipedia, Nabataean Religion]

DAUGHTERS OF ALLAH 1

READ: Al-lat Is One Of The Daughters Of Allah

2.) RAMADAN IS A REPLACEMENT OF “ASHURA”, A PAGAN FASTING OBSERVANCE IN PRE-ISLAMIC TIME.  THE PAGANS, MUHAMMAD, AND THE EARLY MUSLIMS OBSERVED “ASHURA” TOGETHER. 

[Sahih Al-Bukhari 1893]

Narrated `Aisha: (The tribe of) Quraish used to fast on the day of Ashura’ in the Pre-Islamic period, and then Allah’s Apostle ordered (Muslims) to fast on it till the fasting in the month of Ramadan was prescribed; whereupon the Prophet (ﷺ) said, “He who wants to fast (on ‘Ashura’) may fast, and he who does not want to fast may not fast.” 

[Sahih Al-Bukhari 1892] 

Narrated Ibn `Umar: The Prophet (ﷺ) observed the fast on the 10th of Muharram (‘Ashura), and ordered (Muslims) to fast on that day, but when the fasting of the month of Ramadan was prescribed, the fasting of the ‘Ashura’ was abandoned. `Abdullah did not use to fast on that day unless it coincided with his routine fasting by chance. 

[Sahih Bukhari Vol. 5, Bk. 58, No. 172]

‘Ashura’ (i.e. the tenth of Muharram) was a day on which the tribe of Quraish used to fast in the pre-lslamic period of ignorance. The Prophet also used to fast on this day. So when he migrated to Medina, he fasted on it and ordered (the Muslims) to fast on it. When the fasting of Ramadan was enjoined, it became optional for the people to fast or not to fast on the day of Ashura.

3.) THE MUSLIMS SELECTED A STONE TO WORSHIP AND PERFORMED TAWAF (CIRCUMAMBULATION) AROUND IT. 

[Sahih Al-Bukhari 4376 & 4377]

Narrated Abu Raja Al-Utaridi:
We used to worship stones, and when we found a better stone than the first one, we would throw the first one and take the latter, but if we could not get a stone then we would collect some earth (i.e. soil) and then bring a sheep and milk that sheep over it, and perform the Tawaf around it. When the month of Rajab came, we used (to stop the military actions), calling this month the iron remover, for we used to remove and throw away the iron parts of every spear and arrow in the month of Rajab. Abu Raja’ added: When the Prophet (ﷺ) sent with (Allah’s) Message, I was a boy working as a shepherd of my family camels. When we heard the news about the appearance of the Prophet, we ran to the fire, i.e. to Musailima al-Kadhdhab. 

4.) MUHAMMAD KISSED THE BLACK STONE AND PROUDLY CIRCUMAMBULATED THE KAABAH TOGETHER WITH THE PAGANS

[Sahih Muslim 1218 d]

Jabir b. Abdullah (Allah be pleased with them) reported that when Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ) proceeded to Mecca, he came to it (the Black Stone). he kissed it. and moved to his right. and moved quickly in three circuits, and walked in four circuits.

[Sunan Abi Dawud 1889]

Narrated Abdullah ibn Abbas:
The Prophet (ﷺ) wore the mantle under his right armpit with the end over his left shoulder, and touched the corner (Black Stone), then uttered “Allah is most great” and walked proudly in three circuits of circumambulation. When they (the Companions) reached the Yamani corner, and disappeared from the eyes of the Quraysh, they walked as usual; When they appeared before them, they walked proudly with rapid strides. Thereupon the Quraysh said: They look to be the deer (that are jumping). Ibn Abbas said: Hence this became the sunnah (model behaviour of the Prophet).

5.) THE PAGANS CIRCUMAMBULATED THE KAABA NAKED THE SAME WITH THE MUSLIMS ARE DOING TODAY

[Sahih Muslim 1219 b]

Hisham narrated on the authority of his father that the Arabs with the exception of Hums who were Quraish, and their descendants, circumambulated the House naked. They kept circumambulating In this state of nudity unless the Hums supplied to them the clothes. The male provided (clothes) to the male and the female provided clothes to the female. And the Hums did not get out of Muzdalifa, whereas the people (other than the Quraish) went to ‘Arafat.

6.) THE BLACK STONE WAS A PAGAN IDOL, IT’S ONE OF THE 360 IDOLS IN KAABA WHICH WERE WORSHIPED BY THE PAGANS AND MUHAMMAD. 

[Excerpt from Wikipedia, Black Stone] 

BLACK STONE HISTORY

7.) THE MUSLIMS BELIEVE THAT THE STONE THEY WORSHIP COULD SUCK THEIR SINS, HENCE IT BECAME BLACK. 

[At-Tirmidhi, Sunan, hadith no. 959. This hadith is classified as hasan by At-Tirmidhi and as Sahih by Al-Hakim (1/664), and Adh-Dhahabi agreed with him]

Ibn `Umar (may Allah be pleased with him) quoted the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) as saying: “Touching them both (the Black Stone and Ar-Rukn Al-Yamani) is an expiation for one’s sins.” 

[Jami` at-Tirmidhi 877, Book 9, Hadith 70]

Ibn Abbas narrated that: The Messenger of Allah said: “The Black Stone descended from the Paradise, and it was more white than milk, then it was blackened by the sins of the children of Adam.”

8.) THE MUSLIMS BELIEVE THAT THE BLACK STONE WILL WITNESS ON THE JUDGMENT DAY. IT WILL BE GIVEN TWO EYES TO SEE AND TONGUE TO TALK. 

[Sunan Ibn Majah, Book of Hajj Rituals, Hadith 2944]

It was narrated that Sa’eed bin Jubair said:
I heard Ibn ‘Abbas say: The Messenger of Allah said: “This Stone will be brought on the Day of Resurrection, and it will be given two eyes with which to see, and a tongue with which to speak, and it will bear witness for those who touched it in sincerity.”
