Reader comment on item: Destroying Sculptures of Muhammad
in response to reader comment: Yousri: Why did the Prophet say: Kill any jew who falls into your power?

Submitted by Syed Iftikhar (United States), Mar 14, 2008 at 20:52

Please, this is a message for Muslims, Jews, Christians and members of all religions. I am a Muslim and all that I have ever learned from the teachings of the prophet Muhammad (pbuh) have been lessons of peace and kindness. We all must learn to stop seeing things how we want to see them and in terms of self-interest. Stop letting hate blind us to what really is the truth. Muhammad (pbuh) never advocated instigation of violence against anyone. He always believed that we must care for everyone.

Lets all take the lessons of Muhammad, no matter what religion we are, and try to work together to create an envrionment of love. Lets stop hating each others religions and beliefs, instead lets live together in harmony. Lets stop the blind hatred and become one world. It starts here. We all have our beliefs, nobody is trying to force anything upon anyone else. It really all just starts here. Lets start the climb to peace, kindness, and fairness on earth. One by one, look inside your heart, and if it is conquered by hate and rage, then something is wrong. That is not what the human soul is meant to be. Inner peace and fairness will lead to external justice.
