Symbol of Islam

Is there Islam in these symbols shown in the post? Is there any symbol for Islam?

The answer is; there is no symbol for Islam, because there is no basis in Shariah for taking the crescent or star as a symbol of the Muslims. This was not known at the time of the Prophet (peace be upon him), or at the time of the Khulafa al-Raashidoon (the first four leaders of Islam after the death of the Prophet (peace be upon him), or during the time of the Umawis (Umayyad dynasty).

It emerged sometime after that, and historians differ as to when this symbol was first adopted and who was the first to adopt it. Some say it was the Persians, others say it was the Greeks, and that this symbol was somehow passed to the Muslims.

Whatever the case, symbols and banners must be in accordance with the teachings of Islam, and as there is no evidence that this symbol is prescribed by Islam, it is better to avoid such symbols. Neither the crescent nor the star are symbols of the Muslims, even though it is common practice in some Muslims to use them as symbols.

The creation of moon and star is not to take as a symbol of Islam; Allah has created them for the benefit of mankind, an example of which is seen in the following Quranic verses:

“They ask you (O Muhammad) about the new moons. Say: These are signs to mark fixed periods of time for mankind and for the pilgrimage…” [Al Baqra 2:189]

And We have appointed the night and the day as two aayaat (signs). Then, We have made dark the sign of the night while We have made the sign of day illuminating, that you may seek bounty from your Lord, and that you may know the number of the years and the reckoning…” [al-Isra 17:12]

It is He Who made the sun a shining thing and the moon as a light and measured out its (their) stages, that you might know the number of years and the reckoning…’ [Younus 10:5]

“It is He Who has set the stars for you, so that you may guide your course with their help through the darkness of the land and the sea…” [al-Anam 6:97]
“And indeed We have adorned the nearest heaven with lamps, and We have made such lamps (as) missiles to drive away the shayaateen (devils), and have prepared for them the torment of the blazing Fire.” [al-Mulk 67:5]
