Were Alexander the Great and Aesop Muslims?

If history tells us anything, it tells us that Alexander the Great and Aesop (of Aesop’s Fables) were not Muslims. But according to the Qur’an, Alexander and Aesop were Muslims (just like Adam, Abraham, Jesus, the disciples of Jesus, etc.). It seems that Muhammad was simply adopting popular figures from stories in Arabia and turning them into tools for his proselytizing.

“Alexander’s association with two horns and with the building of the gate against Gog and Magog occurs much earlier than the Qur’an, and persists in the beliefs of all three of these religions: Judaism, Christianity, and Islam.”

[Rebecca Edwards in an address to the American Philological Association, 133rd Annual Meeting Program (Philadelphia, January 5, 2002)].

You know who else was muslim? Hitler.

Alexander the Great (peace be upon him), known in the Qur’an as “Dhul Qarnayn”, was a Greek Muslim. Even in Plutarch’s works (one of the earliest Greeks to write about Alexander) there are passages where he quotes Alexander (peace be upon him) praising the ONE GOD (not many gods). Further, when Alexander (peace be upon him) conquered Jerusalem, he worshipped the One God, proving his monotheism to the Hebrews. This story can be found in the works of Josephus, a Hebrew who wrote in the Greek language. In addition, Alexander (peace be upon him) was prophesied in the Book of Daniel (Torah), and Hebrews like Josephus accepted this prophecy. Just like many Hebrew scholars, medieval Christian scholars also agreed Alexander (peace be upon him) was divinely protected by the One God, such as Procopius. Furthermore, the earliest Arab Muslim sources about Dhul Qarnayn all state he’s Alexander the Great. So this is what Islam teaches. PERIOD. Believing made-up pagan myths such as Alexander (peace be upon him) being a pagan or a homosexual is considered blasphemous in Islam. So be CAREFUL.

Ibn Sina (Avicenna) also believed that Alexander the Great is Dhul Qarnayn.

Ibn Ishaq also stated Dhul Qarnayn was Greek. And Al-Jalalayn also stated Dhul Qarnayn was Alexander the Great.

Earliest Muslim sources all state Dhul Qarnayn is Alexander the Great. That’s why Alexander influenced the Islamic conquests. Because the early Muslims believed Alexander was Dhul Qarnayn. Duh

In Islam we believe in Alexander Dhul Qarnayn, alhamdulillah.

As someone from Macedonia a descendant of Alexander’s people, this is incredibly insulting.

Zulkar naiyen is distinct characteristics than Alexander the great. Alexander was paganize but zulkar naiyen was righteous king♔ the king with two horn. Allah knows better.

Al Iskender (Alexander in Arabic) Zulkarneyn(Man for two times,two generations),is mention in Kor’an,Islam’s holly book … Al Iskender Zulkarneyn is “Alexander The Great”, Young King and Prophet … He Worshiped One God only,but never prohibit others to worship own God’s and practice own believe … By Sufi tradition and tales in Macedonia and Bosnia(The Balkans),He will came again,right before return of Messiah(Jesus/Isa a.s),to unite people and to make Justice.Some Shiya(Iran) Moslems, believe that is “Mahdi” … Whatever we call him ,will be New Alexander The Great,according to Macedonian(Balkan) Sufis

You’re great

Alexander the Great is the Four-Headed Leopard with Wings

Alexander The Great was born Polytheist but did he die Polytheist? According to the historian Josephus, there is a book called “the complete work of Josephous” he talks about that he believed in God. And he talks about the wall that he built to block Gog and Magog as it was described in the Quran. Another historical book called “Alexander’s Gate, Gog and Magog and the inclosed nations.” Another book called “The greek Alexander Romance”
