    Sorry to give you a blunt example which may not sound that nice to you , but this is the most easiest way to understand this issue.

    Say, some one compares you to a Rat , a cockroach

    But frankly we (you & me) are not much better than them except we have common sense and some other few differences. But though similarities are numerous BUT still we will not like like to be compared with something which we are not.

    Allah the Creator is far from any comparison to his creations, Comparing Allah, The non born, Creator to idols which are mostly humans who were born out of a drop of detested semen is FAR WORST comparison than the former .

    How about your wife gives more attention & deep love to some servant (man ) than your self (the husband) ??

    So how come those unfair ones , forget and are ungrateful to the Creator God, but love and praise some idols that were made from their own hands ?

    is this is not a great injustice ?

    Just a Muslim with Glorious Quran and (hadith) sunnah as my guide as in verse 41:33 '' And who is better in speech than one who invites to Allah and does righteousness and says, "Indeed, I am of the Muslims."

    Re: Why you think Idol Worship is bad ?

    To understand idol worship, you should study Prophet Ibrahim. He had the strongest logic he used against his people.

    His Nation was Staunch Worshippers of Idols


    In the days of the Prophet Ibrahim (peace be upon him) ignorance prevailed upon the minds of the people. Most of the people had no knowledge of Allah and His teachings. They worshipped the sun, the moon and the stars. They were astronomers and maintained the records of the movements of the planets. They prayed to the idols made of wood and stone and made many offerings for them. The priests enjoyed a prominent place in the society. They commanded respect among their followers. They were paid well. The poor people were ruled by the chiefs. They were subjected to their cruelty and injustice.


    The Prophet Ibrahim (peace be upon him) was the son of Terah whose surname Adhar was popularly known. He was a doll carver and a staunch worshipper of idols. He did all he could to compel Ibrahim (peace be upon him) to worship the handicrafts of man but flatly refused to do so. He hated even an idea of worshipping the idols which could neither see, nor hear, nor speak.


    At one time a special event took place. There was a grand ceremony outside the locality and every one had to participate in the celebrations. Most of the evil-doers drank; liquor and became noisy and wild. They were losing their balance of mind in a state of intoxication. There was a great hustle. Almost every one from the town attended the ceremony except the Prophet Ibrahim (peace be upon him). He had a special plan in his mind. He proceeded towards the Temple escaping the sight of others. When he entered the Temple, he saw there many statues which stood motionless and helpless.


    The Prophet Ibrahim (peace be upon him) lifted his heavy axe and began to smite the idols turn by turn. The idols fell to the ground with a big thud. The floor was loaded with numerous noses, ears, heads, arms, legs and other parts of the idols. He broke all the idols in the sanctuary but spared the Chief one. He did so to demonstrate that the idols had no power to cause harm to any one or bestow benefits upon others. They were as helpless as mere stones and it is against the dignity of human beings to pay homage to them. When the Prophet Ibrahim (peace be upon him) finished his job, he left the Temple cautiously making sure that no one had seen him.


    When the celebrations came to an end, the people returned. The priests went directly towards the Temple as usual and some people accompanied them. They saw that the idols were smashed to pieces. The floor was littered with stones and the Chief idol was standing with an axe hanging down along its neck.

    The priests began to scream and became confused. The people rushed to the Temple on hearing a deafening hue and cry. Every one was in a furious mood. They wanted to know who had dared do this trouble to the idols. They wished to take revenge. Then some one said that the Prophet Ibrahim (peace be upon him) would have done so because he consistently spoke ill of our gods and advised the people to worship One God. The Holy Quran relates:

    “Then he broke them into pieces except the Chief of them that haply they may return to him. They said: Who has done so to our gods? Most surely he is one of the evil-doers. We heard a youth called Ibrahim making mention of them.” (Surah 21: Verse 57)


    He (Ibrahim) said, "Rather, this - the largest of them - did it, so ask them, if they should (be able to) speak."
    So they returned to themselves and said (to each other], "Indeed, you are the wrongdoers."
    Then they reversed themselves, (saying), "You have already known that these do not speak!"
    He said, "Then do you worship instead of God that which does not benefit you at all or harm you? (21:63-66)



    The Prophet Ibrahim (peace be upon him) was summoned to appear before the king. When he came, he was asked if he had destroyed all those idols. He remained silent for a while. Afterwards he directed the king to ask the chief idol on whose neck was hung the axe with which the havoc was done.


    The Prophet Ibrahim (peace be upon him) was mocking and making fun of those stupid people who worshipped helpless, dumb and deaf idols made of stones. The king as well as the priests did not like to prolong their discussions because the arguments of the Prophet Ibrahim (peace be upon him) were very sound and convincing. The Holy Quran relates:

    “Then they said to Ibrahim: Is it you who has done so to our gods? He replied: Well, some one has surely done this. Here is the chief of them, so ask them if they can speak. Then they turned towards one another and said: You yourselves are surely in the wrong. Then they were made to hung down their heads out of shame and said to Ibrahim: Certainly you know that they do not speak.” (Surah 21: Verses 65-68).
    Although they felt ashamed yet they remained stubborn. They decided to burn the Prophet Ibrahim (peace be upon him) alive for causing destruction to their idols.

    Why you think Idol Worship is bad ?

    Because, God Almighty Says: “I have created mankind and Jinnkind, except that they may worship Me” so this means that if God took great care of you, and He is the one who created you, and He provided you what is good, then you should pray to Him only, and He Says that all other gods are false gods. And if yo turn away from Him and worship anyone besides Him, then it is very bad,because you ignore Him and you disrespect Him, that is why it is bad to worship idols. And also God Says: “none has the right to be worshiped but Me” and “there’s no god but I” so this means, there’s no god but only one God which is God Almighty.

    The Qur'an says:

    "He [Ibrahim] said to his father, “O my father, why do you worship what can neither hear, nor see, nor benefit you in any way?"

    "If you pray to them, they cannot hear your prayer. And even if they heard, they would not answer you. And on the Day of Resurrection, they will reject your partnership. None informs you like an Expert."

    "Those you call upon besides Him cannot help you, nor can they help themselves."

    "And if you call them to guidance, they will not hear. And you see them looking at you, yet they do not see."

    Idols cannot do anything for you. They were created themselves, so how can they be of any significance or power? If they were powerful, they would not have been created by something. They cannot hear you, or see you, or do anything to help you.
