The crescent moon symbol of Islam is a remnant of ancient pagan moon worship. The crescent moon symbol was used since 2100 BC in paganism. Polytheism has extensively used the symbol of the crescent moon as far back as Abraham as hundreds of archeological examples verify.
All the Arabs at the Kaaba in Mecca worshipped the moon god Hubal. Crescent moon is the official symbol of Islam on top of every Mosque in the world and beside the Kaaba on top of the Maqam Ibrahim! It is the last remaining polytheistic remnant of ancient moon worship under a new sanitized monotheistic veil.
Muhammad grew up worshipping many pagan gods in the Kaaba including the moon, either called Hubal and Allah.
After his conversion to monotheism, through the influence of Christians, Muhammad stopped worshiping the moon. The same is true for all Muslims since, down to the present day. However, the crescent moon is the universal symbol of Islam.
The fact remains that most Arab/Muslim countries today still use the crescent moon symbol:
- Flags of Arab nations
- Every mosque has the moon god symbol on top of it
- Maqam Ibrahim beside the Kaba has the moon god symbol on top of it
