Holy Light From The Ka’aba
A Muslim friend recently told me that Holy Light coming out of The Kaaba is visible from outer space. Because of this, my friend said, humanity can know for sure that Islam is the true religion of God.
The source of his assertion appears to be the comments of some Russian cosmonauts on You Tube who saw Mecca from space and apparently said that the light from Mecca was cleaner and brighter than the light coming from European cities such as Paris
The comments of the Russian cosmonauts do not prove that Mecca has purer or brighter light than other cities of the world. In fact, the video shows a rotating Earth with all of the cities lit just as brightly or brighter than Mecca.
Also, it is obvious from the You Tube video that the light coming from Mecca is simply electrical light, the same as any other city in the world. There is no extra light coming from the Ka’aba at all, just the normal electrical lights of the city of Mecca. In fact, no light at all comes from the Ka’aba because it is not supplied with electrical lighting.
If Holy Light is streaming from The Ka’aba one would expect a gigantic blinding, shining light to be pouring forth from The Ka’aba. This is what one expects when told Holy Light Comes Out Of The Ka’aba. But no light is visible from The Ka’aba at all as is plainly shown by the cosmosnauts photographs.
Why should anyone be surprised that light from electrical lamps located in Mecca, identical to that which exists in every other city in the world, emanates into outer space ?
According to the text written under the You Tube video, the cosmonaut says that the superior, pure quality of the light from Mecca was only evident when he took photographs of Mecca. It would be interesting to see if his result could be repeated by other people or if it could be explained by various settings on his camera such as exposure times, filters, angle of the picture or other camera settings or by relative levels of air pollution above these cities.
I would also note that the video is completely in Russian. It would be useful if the video could be translated and have subtitles so that the comments of the cosmonaut can be verified and understood in context.
I also note that the Cosmonaut who took these pictures, Anton Schkaplerov, was born in the Crimea, which has a significant Muslim population. Is he a Muslim and if so, is he simply providing an Islamically-sourced expectation of what he hoped to see rather than an objective account of what he really did see ?
Also, to re-state, the only light in the cosmonauts photographs is the ordinary electrical light coming from street lights in the city of Mecca. No light at all is shown coming from the Kaaba itself, though, of course, the Grand Mosque in which The Ka’aba is situated is well-lit with electrical light.
Finally, if Holy Light really is streaming out of The Kaaba, why isn’t it visible from Mecca itself or any other place on Earth ? Why can’t people standing next to The Ka’aba see light streaming out of it ?
Apparently the Holy Light streaming from the Ka’aba is invisible when standing next to it in Mecca, invisible from Saudi Arabia, invisible from The Middle East, invisible from any and all places on Earth, invisible even from Outer Space, but only when someone takes a picture of Mecca from Outer Space, then the Holy Light becomes visible in the photographs. But the Holy Light does not actually come from The Ka’aba. Only electrical lights in the city of Mecca.
Imagine if I told my Muslim friends that Holy Light is continuously streaming out of the roof of The Vatican but that this light not visible from Italy or indeed any place on Earth and that this light is not visible from outer space either, but that an American Christian astronaut had taken a picture of The Vatican from space and that it was only visible in this picture. Furthermore no-one else had ever taken such a picture. And again furthermore, the picture of this light from The Vatican shows only the normal electrical lights and no special light coming from St. Peter’s Church itself or from any other place in The Vatican.
Would my Muslim friends then believe me that Holy Light is streaming out of The Vatican and that therefore Christianity is the true religion of God ?
Of course not.
- No light at all is emitted from The Ka’aba
- Mecca emits electrical light, not Holy light.
- The same kind of light is emitted by every other city in the world
- Other cities are just as brightly lit as Mecca
Ka’aba Emits An Infinite Amount Of Short-Wave Radiation
Another variation of the story that pure and holy light streams from the Ka’aba is described by Dr. Abd Al-Baset Sayyid of the Egyptian National Research Centre and shown on Saudi TV in January 2005.
Dr. Sayyid said that NASA has proven that The Ka’aba emits a gigantic amount of Short-Wave radiation which streams to an infinite distance from The Ka’aba. Dr. Sayyid said that NASA had observed this phenomenon during a Mars mission.
Unfortunately Dr.Sayyid gives absolutely no evidence for this assertion. Dr.Sayyid says that NASA put this information up on their website put then mysteriously pulled it down again after 21 days. Dr Sayyid does not provide any hard-copy of the report or, indeed, any evidence at all for this supposed NASA report.
Why should anyone believe him ? Quite simply, no light or radiation comes from The Ka’aba at all.
Since Dr. Sayyid does not provide any evidence for his assertion that The Ka’aba emits an infinite amount of short-wave radiation there is no evidence for anyone to believe. He is quite simply making up the story from his own imagination.
Imagine if I told my Muslim friends that The Vatican emits an infinite amount of Short-Wave radiation and that this was proven by Muslim scientists from the Egyptian National Research Centre during the first moon sighting of Ramadan of 2005. I then say that The ENRC put this report up on their website but then pulled it down 21 days later to try and conceal the fact that Christianity is the true religion of God. I then tell them that I have no hard-copy of the ENRC report and in fact no evidence at all.
What would my Muslim friends say to me ? Would they believe me ?
Of course not.
