Why do people pretend that this is a symbol of Islam?

Why do people pretend that this is a symbol of Islam? It's rightfully a symbol of the Turks, inherited from their former empire. Go ahead and find any references to it before the Ottomans.

Just use the Rub el Hizb instead.

    Because Muslims use it all the time, plenty of Islamic countries have a crescent moon on their flag, mosques are decorated with crescent moons, and even the clocktower overseeing the Kaaba has a giant crescent moon on the top.

    Doesn't matter, Muslims have internalized as a symbol for their religion.

      Fair point but just like with another other religious group, the average Muslim has a very basic understanding of their religion. The crescent isn't really a symbol for Islam but a symbol for the general Muslim community. However the empty thoughts of the lemmings of a group are generally full of stupid little details such as this.

    It’s inherited from their empire, which was also the #1 claimant to the caliphate for the better part of a millenium.

        It was first used by the Ottomans but when you were the number 1 Muslim power for almost 700 years and was the Caliph for like 500 years, it is where the symbol comes from

          Not it wasnt you moron
          The Rashidun, Hafsid and Zyanid berber dynasties of north africa, etc... used it way before the ottoman empire
          >number 1 muslim power for 700 years
          Again not at all, in the first 200 years the ottomans were a random emirate, its only after they defeated the mamluks that they became the first powers and even then, many other muslim nations contested them

          Like i said many muslim entities used the cresent and star before the ottoman peak power and it was used by a lot of entities before islam too

            You can argue that the Ottomans weren't important until 1453 but following that, they were THE major Muslim player, especially looking from a European perspective. They weren't alone in 1453 but going into the the1500s, they were the strongest Muslim power, both in the East and the West

            Mamluks were more powerful in my opinion at that times
            Yes they defeated west european armies sometimes but they were still behind mamluks for me

    Some early "islamic" coins had menorah and cross. They should adopt those symbols.

    The crescent and moon was a common motif for centuries even before Islam existed
