"the golden altar which is before God" - Green Islam or Yellow Islam


Green Islam or Yellow Islam

According to the teaching of Islam, Muhammad actually met Christ Jesus.
The Isra and Mi'raj are the two parts of a Night Journey that, according to Islam, the prophet, Muhammad, took during a single night around the year 621. It has been described as both a physical and spiritual journey.

From various hadith we learn much greater detail. The Isra is the part of the journey of Muhammad from Mecca to Jerusalem. It began when Muhammad was in the Masjid al-Haram, and the archangel Gabriel (Jibrīl or Jibrāʾīl) came to him, and brought Buraq, the traditional heavenly steed of the prophets. Buraq carried Muhammad to the Masjid Al Aqsa, the "Farthest Mosque", in Jerusalem. Muhammad alighted, tethered Buraq to the Temple Mount and performed prayer, where on God's command he was tested by Gabriel.[6][7] It was told by Anas ibn Malik that Muhammad said: "Jibra'il brought me a vessel of wine, a vessel of water and a vessel of milk, and I chose the milk. Jibra'il said: 'You have chosen the Fitrah (natural instinct).'" In the second part of the journey, the Mi'raj (an Arabic word that literally means "ladder"[8]), Buraq took him to the heavens, where he toured the seven stages of heaven, and spoke with the earlier prophets such as Abraham (ʾIbrāhīm), Moses (Musa), John the Baptist (Yaḥyā ibn Zakarīyā), and Jesus (Isa). Muhammad was then taken to Sidrat al-Muntaha – a holy tree in the seventh heaven that Gabriel was not allowed to pass. According to Islamic tradition, God instructed Muhammad that Muslims must pray fifty times per day; however, Moses told Muhammad that it was very difficult for the people and urged Muhammad to ask for a reduction, until finally it was reduced to five times per day.

This story for Islamic teaching suggests that Islam is decisively linked with Judaism and Christianity, though it has its own unique part.

If Judaism is blue, Christianity is red, and Islam is green, their relationships can be expressed in analogy with  light's three primary colors as below:


Maybe, the white part represents the true religion.  Then, we have to find the overlapped teachings of the three religions to be true believers of God.

However, if Judaism is blue, Christianity is red, and Islam is yellow, their relationships can be expressed in analogy with  light's three primary colors for color material as below:


In this case, the common part of the three religions is not white but black that is not true religion but nothing.  Then, we should not have take together the three religions but should leave them separately as they are.

The point at issue is after identifying Judaism as blue and Christianity as red, what color should Islam take.  If it takes green, all the three religions together would eventually result in white, the true religion, but if it takes yellow,  all the three religions together would eventually result in nothing or nothingness.

In this context, the religious fate of the mankind depends on Islam.  And we cannot take an optimistic view on the outlook of it, since Islamic nations have been under tragic conditions since the start of the 21st century to date.

Or maybe there are two types of Islam: the green one and the yellow one.  Then should we conquer the yellow Islam as the above tentative theory suggests?

Rev 9:14 Saying to the sixth angel which had the trumpet, Loose the four angels which are bound in the great river Euphrates.
