Allah is Apollo

Post by Ethan » Sun Nov 15, 2020 12:07 pm

Allah and Apollo are similar sounding names and ١ّللَه‎ appears to have an article, but without the initial ١ّل, it produces لَه‎ that doesn't mean anything, thus part of the word not a prefix. In Hebrew script, ١ّللَه‎ would be אללה and is comparable to Απόλλων, the terminal ה exchanges with ν, the double λ is intact and π exchanges with the glottal א.

They are four consonents in Απόλλων, ΠΛΛΝ, thus wouldn't this be a tetragrammaton. cf. ١ّللَه‎.

in his Hymn to Delos, says that swans flew seven times around the island of Delos

During Hajj, pilgrims must walk around the Kabaa seven times counterclockwise and Mecca clearly modelled after the Temple of Apollo in Delphi and the Kabba itself represents an ὀμφαλός (Navel), sacred to Apollo.

ὀμφαλός
centre or middle point : “νήσῳ ἐν ἀμφιρύτῃ, ὅθι τ᾽ ὀ. ἐστι θαλάσσης” Od.1.50 (only here in Od.) ; later Delphi (or rather a round stone in the Delphic temple) was called ὀ. as marking the middle point of Earth,

The heights that overlook Mecca, Mount Arafat. The word عَرَفَات‎ came from the Greek, ὄροφος,

ὀρόφους Φοίβου, i.e. Phoebus roof, Temple of Apollo.
