    What is your answer to it? Please
    It should also be answered by the Judaism people and the Christianity people, it is first related to them. Right? Please

    The scriptures give no instructions about it. They do not say one must worship a physical representation and they do not say that one must not do this.
    The practice was developed by Hindu saints and wise persons. This practice has been an immensely effective method for developing a sense of devotion and connection with the Divine.

    Everything, they tell us to worship a god that is nothing but jealous, with a few good things mixed through it.

    "The scriptures give no instructions about it"
    Veda gives no commandment to be superstitious. It is the people who do it on their own. Please

    If you define idol as I stated Muslims do in my previous post then certainly crosses, crucifixes, icons, statues and sacramentals are all idols. But the key phrase here is "as Muslims do". Since someone inclined to wear a crucifix is unlikely to be a Muslim, they're not likely to care about what Islam has to say about what does and does not constituent an idol. (Or whether or not idolatry is even wrong in the first place).

    You know Moses was a Jew right, led the Jews out of Egypt, then to Israel?

    I don't know what is the benefit of making the idols?

    I don't believe that Muslims worked in destroying the idols and there's
    no one verse in the quran that instructs Muslims to destroy the idols otherwise
    we can never see any idols existing in the Islamic territories while we can
    see many idols in Egypt till this day.

    @paarsurrey I'm sorry to trouble you, but I prefer if you can answer my question. Do you or not recognize that prophet Muhammad destroyed idols?
