The Destroyer of Idols - The Story of Our Prophet Ibrahim

When spring came, water flew in the Tigris and the Euphrates. People were delighted, so they held celebrations in the city of Urr and other cities Of Babylon.

When spring came and level of water rose in rivers, the farmers were glad, for their crops would increase.

The people of the city of Urr went to Zaqqura, which was a pyramidal temple. They took with them gifts to offer them to the gods, especially the god Mardukh.

The people of Babylon held celebrations outside their cities. They chose pretty places to dance, to eat, and to drink. When the celebrations were over, they came back to their the city and went to the temple.

The temple was on the top of Zaqqura in the city of Urr. There was a row of numerous gods made of stone.

The people of Babylon worshipped the sun, the moon, the stars, Venus, and the King.

At that time, over four thousand years ago, Namrud b. Kan'an was the king. He imprisoned and killed people. He took whatever he wanted of their crops. So some people worshipped him because they were afraid of his power.

In spring people went to the temple carrying gifts such as goats and wheat. They offered them to their gods so that they might be pleased with them and to bless them.

Some people were fortunetellers and astrologers, so the King himself asked them for advice, and people gave them gifts, for they were afraid of them.
