Is the Devil's Face on the Dome of the Rock?

A friend sent me these pictures of the Dome of the Rock--Islam's third holiest site. He pointed out the creepy image on the outside of the building, which some claim to be the face of Satan or some other demon. I'm inclined to see this as a random pattern produced by natural rock formation, but I have to wonder why Muslims chose a slab of marble that has an image that does look rather scary (horns, eyes, a nose, a jagged mouth, flames around the head, a neck, etc.). Do any of my Muslim friends have an idea of why the builders didn't use a different piece of rock? (You can see the location of the slab at the bottom of the second picture.)

Those images look permanent

I just got back from Israel. The image was pointed out by our guide. She said that it is something that was NOT originally in the stone. It has appeared over time. Could God be giving us His opinion of this Muslim Shrine being on His Temple Mount?

i can totally remember seeing this demonic looking image when i went to the Dome of the Rock in 2000. it's just to the right of the entrance. i wonder if anyone can confirm that it was originally not part of the stone? it would be interesting to compare older photos with ones from today to see how the images has changed.

the bible says the beast sits in the temple of God showing himself that he is God that is the dome of the rock mark gospel called [ the [it] mark chapter 13

These images were done deliberately in Italy when the King of Jordan renewed the Dome and rocks were bought from that country. It is a dishonest act and a clear act of hatred to Islam which I reject. In recent past, that is in the fifties, these images were not there.

The pillar that You are looking at is Marble sheathing gifted to Islam by Mussolini during the Second World wat, It is identical to all of the other sheets in every aspect save on, The supposed face reveals a Historical mystery, The image is from concentrated energy burning it image through the Marble! You see The Muslims did not build the Dome of the rock, They acquired it by war... It originally was a storage anex for the Temple of Soliman Built by Jews. Take the time to take a really close look at the photo You provided if the alleged Demon face and then turn it sideways to look at an image of the Ark of The Covenant, With Two Cherubim Facing onward with wings covering the mercy seat with the 4 Horns! This is why it is such a Holy sight for the Muslims, They know what happens to them should it ever see the light of day!

not an image of the ark ..

The muslims do not Accept the ARK of GOD

The muslims reject everything associated to Jews or Hebrews and all of their prophets

The Quran talks more about FALSE GODS, and DEMONS then it does about GOD

SURAH 3:54 ALLAH IS THE greatest deceiver. this is the quran SAYING.. ALLAH THE GOD OF Islam is the deceiver, liar, fraudster and sinner .. to LIE IS TO SIN. So, are they saying GOD is a sinner or liar , or their GOD Allah is Lucifer. 15 Leading Islamic scholars and Imans in 10 different way .. obviously proving them all to be Liars and Altering the words of the Arabic Words in the Quran. If arabic Lexicon translators it say .. Allah is greatest deceiver. In 650 AD, Muslim Scholars wrote a book of Pre Islamic False Pagan Gods. One of them was Allah , 4 others was Allah Wife Allut and his three daughter one of which was Manat .. which is where the Black Stone from Petra that now sits on the Kaaba Comes from. Thus the BLACK STONE is also from a False Pagan God, Allah Daughter and resided in Petra until 731 when it was transferred to the newly build Kaaba after the Earthquake in Petra partially destroyed the Tempe to Allah. However, PROOF IS THERE and the Temple to Allah STILL EXIST and it has a Statue with the face of Zeus for Allah on it. And it says ... Allah HAS NO SON, but apparently Allah Had a wife and 3 Daughter .. Obvioulsy the ONLY FALSE GOD WALKING THE EARTH capapble of having a wife and daughters .. Just before Jesus WAS LUCIFER .. THUS Evidenc that is Undeniable exist .. that Allah is Lucifer . ONE OF THE GREAT DECEPTION .... HE IS THE GREATEST DECEIVER and is DECEIVING EVERY MUSLIM ON EARTH .. TO PRAY TO HIM, LUcIFER. Allah is not GOD Name just a generic reference to the word GOD, or in Babylonian Times or Petra - Nabataent TIME .. A FALSE PAGAN GOD .. that represent LUCIFER .

Nowhere in the passage does the term decieve pop up

Sahih International: And the disbelievers planned, but Allah planned. And Allah is the best of planners.

Pickthall: And they (the disbelievers) schemed, and Allah schemed (against them): and Allah is the best of schemers.

Yusuf Ali: And (the unbelievers) plotted and planned, and Allah too planned, and the best of planners is Allah.

Shakir: And they planned and Allah (also) planned, and Allah is the best of planners.

Muhammad Sarwar: The unbelievers plotted and God planned, but God is a much better planner;

Mohsin Khan: And they (disbelievers) plotted [to kill 'Iesa (Jesus) ], and Allah planned too. And Allah is the Best of the planners.

Arberry: And they devised, and God devised, and God is the best of devisers.


Also the Hajara Aswad was always situated within Makkah even history is testament to that fact. so where have you come to the conclusion that it was transferred from this "supposed" temple?
