to clarify matters i wud just like to add that the hindu book that was mentioned only came into existence after the conquest of makkah and that book is also unreliable (been tampered with) so to use that as proof is building a house on quicksand

Zoroastrians are not fire worshipers.

A Zoroastrian is not a fire worshiper but through the veneration of fire is able to generate an intimate communion with Ahura Mazda. When Zoroastrians stand in devotion before a sacred fire they believe that they are standing in the presence of the radiating power of Ahura Mazda. When they pray before a fire they pay homage to the creation that represents life and the inherent nature of Ahura Mazda -- total goodness.

In the Avesta FIRE expresses multi-dimensional ideas for it helps humans through enlightment that truth can bring in terms of knowledge and understanding, it bestows just rewards to the truthful and deceitful at the time of judgement and works towards the fulfillement of Asha and therefore the final victory of good over evil. To a Zoroastrian FIRE has various meanings, such as the fire of inspiration, the fire of love, the fire of righteousness, the fire of emotion, the fire of compassion, the fire of devotion, the fire of the life giving force in all of Ahura Mazda's creations.

just like muslims dont worship the stone during hajj Zoroastrians do not worship fire

so dont be ignorant.

The ascent to heaven is narrated only in Hadith not the Quran. And since Hadith was written in the third century AH by Farsi-speaking (Persian) men, it is very plausible that they themselves injected some of their Persian culture into Hadith.



Alternatively, Persian culture was of great influence in the Islamic empire and it is only natural that converts to Islam would re-assign their old mythology to their new religion in the form of Hadith.
