” 16.  The remnants of moon worship can be seen in Islam in the fact that the crescent moon is atop every mosque and that the 28 day sacred month of Ramadan, (annual pilgrimage of Hajj) starts and finishes with the crescent shaped phase of the moon .

The croissant was invented in Vienna in the 16th century, being inspired by the crescent moon symbol of Islam. Islamic countries fly flags that still use the crescent moon with the stars in the middle that are remnants of moon worship.

Before Muhammad came along, the crescent moon represented Allah and the stars represented his daughters. (el-Lat, el-Uzza, and Manat)


Even the Islamic sword (scimitar) is shaped like a crescent moon in honor of their pagan history.”
