QUESTION:

I'm curious to know - Within the Islamic religion, is there a symbol analogous to the Judaic Star of David?


ANSWER:

As far as I have read, there is not a symbol in Islam similar to the Judaic Star of David. The famous crescent symbol is a later innovation (a bid`a, interestingly accepted by all Muslims of our time!) probably of Turkish origin.
