There is indeed a vast multitude of religions that the Earth witnesses, however, most of these creeds hold a common denominator in the term pilgrimage!
Yes pilgrimage! The Buddhists perform pilgrimage in Bodh Gaya etc. the Hindus in Kumbh Mela etc. the Jews’ make pilgrimage to the western wall of the temple Mount, and of course Muslims perform Hajj, but have you wondered from where did the concept of pilgrimage originate from? Well read on!
If you’ll introspect you’ll certainly notice many concepts found in Islam also found in several other religions, such as zam zam rechristened as Holy water in Christianity, the Qorbanot in Judaism which basically translates to animal sacrifice which ahem is also “surprisingly” found in Islam…
Well, the list could go on and on, it truly could, however, since the theme of this article isn’t the similarity of Islamic concepts to other religions, I shall leave it to your common sense and rationality to cognize the origins or so to speak imitations of these religious concepts; for indeed it is only the true religion that can be imitated and never vice versa.
