Tsabaism – Origin Of Abrahamic Religions
In his book Origines, Vol III & IV, Sir W. Drummond writes : “Tsabaism was the universal language of mankind when Abraham received his call, and their doctrines were probably extended all over the civilized nations of Earth.”
In all probability, Tsabaism is a corruption of the word Shaivism which is part of the Vedic religion. On page 439 of this book, Sir Drummond mentions some of gods of pre-Islamic Arabs, all of which were among the 360 idols that were consecrated in the Kaaba shrine before it was raided and destroyed by Muhammad and his followers.
Here are some of the Arab deities mentioned and their Sanskrit names :

– An Alternate View
From its appearance, The Black Stone seems to be Shiva’s linga emblem. The term is a corrupted form of the Sanskrit word Sanghey Ashweta, meaning : non-white stone. It still survives in Kaaba as a primary object of veneration.
There have been concerted attempts by Saud rulers to eliminate any evidence that would impair the authority of Islam, and hence their own as keepers of the holiest two shrines at Mecca and Medina. But for that, if archaeological excavations could be undertaken, all other idols too could be found buried in Kaaba precincts or trampled underfoot in labyrinthine subterranean corridors.
The Black Stone is badly mutilated; its carved base has disappeared, and the stone itself is broken at seven places. Its parts are now held together by a silver band studded with silver nails. It lies half buried in the South East portion of the Kaaba Wall. The term Kaaba itself appears to be a corruption of the Sanskrit word Gabha ( Garbha + Griha ), which means “sanctum sanctorum.”
In addition, in inscriptions from Hajja and its neighborhood was found a votive vessel dedicated by members of two tribes called Rama and Somia. Rama and Soma are Vedic deities… Rama is of the Solar dynasty and Soma of the Lunar one.
The moon god was called by various names in pre-Islamic times; one of them was Allah. Allah had 3 children : Al-Lat, Al-Uzza and Manat. Al-Lat and Al-Uzza were both feminine deities. Alla is also another name for the Hindu goddess Durga. It is likely that the goddess Al-Lat was Alla ( Durga ) and Al-Uzza was Oorja ( energy or life force, also known as Shakti ).
Manat may have been none other than Somnath, which is another name for Lord Shiva. One significant point to note is that Soma, in Sanskrit, means Moon and Nath means Lord. Thus the Kaaba itself seems to have been dedicated to the Moon God Somnath, alias Shiva, and the word Somnath was corrupted to Manat.
As observed, the famous Black Stone could have been none other than the Shiva linga of Makkeshwar, alias Mecca. Lord Shiva is always shown with a crescent Moon on his head and every Shiva temple is supposed to have a sacred water spring, representing the Ganges. The Crescent Moon pinnacle of the Kaaba and the Zamzam spring ( actually Zamza, from Ganga ) seem testimonies to the Vedic connections of Kaaba.
Sahih Bukhari Vol 2, Book 26, No 689
Narrated by Abu Huraira :
In the year prior to the last Hajj of the Prophet,
when Allah’s Apostle made Abu Bakr the leader of the pilgrims,
the latter ( Abu Bakr ) sent me in the company of a group of people
to make a public announcement –
‘ No pagan is allowed to perform Hajj after this year;
and no naked person is allowed to perform Tawaf of the Kaaba.’
Can you imagine naked pagans and Muslims performing Tawaf ?
Among Hindus though, Naga ascetics do not cover their bodies
with anything except ash !
Tradition proclaims that Mohammed’s grandfather dug the well of Zamzam and dedicated it to Asaf and Neila. He almost sacrificed his son, Mohammad’s father, to the two stone idols … a very distinct pagan practice !
