"you think these muslims would carry something like ( our beloved prophet was a murderer and a rapist !? ) ..................................... well first of all its not true.. cause muhammed was a man sent by God and everything he ever said or did was wonderful and pure.. but well let me go on with your story .. IF what you say is true .. you think it will be carried by hadith? I mean .. if he is what you claim he is then those who carry the hadith would have converted to another religion! i mean why would anyone wanna follow a killer or an evil person??! and in that case these who carried the hadith would not be muslims! so it was not a hadith!!

I am not sure what you are referring to - was it this previous post of mine:wherrein I quoted from hadiths

"Allah's Apostle (Muhammed) said to me, "Have you got married O Jabir?" I replied, "Yes." He asked "What, a virgin or a matron?" I replied, "Not a virgin but a matron." He said, "Why did you not marry a young girl who would have fondled with you?" (Bukhari 59:382)

A'isha (Allah be pleased with her) reported: "Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him) married me when I was six years old, and I was admitted to his house at the age of nine." (Sahih Muslim 3309)

[Muhammad said] "…the Divine Inspirations do not come to me on any of the beds except that of Aisha." (Bukhari 47:755)

I noted your lack of response on this. And please, don't tell me 'child marriage was OK in those days..' Maybe it was acceptable then between very young people, but a man in his 50's and a nine year old?

What would you do if you could somehow timetravel back to those times and that location. Imagine if that was possible. You would have no clue what Mohammed looked like. Now just suppose stumbled into a tent and found a 50 something year old man in bed with a nine year old girl. What would you honestly think?

Now, besides that point, millions of people have thought that some leaders were 'everything he ever said or did was wonderful and pure..' - and thwese even in relatively recent times. These leaders were responsible for the deaths of millions ultimately - yet to their devoted populace they were saviours who could do no wrong and lead their fellow believers into a glorious future where their own ideology would hold sway.

Think Stalin, Mao Tse Tung, Pol Pot and Adolf Hitler. Hitler and Mohammed had similar attitudes to Jews too - but the irony is - Hitler never ever personally killed a single Jew (or any other person for that matter ) - whereas your beloved Mohammed certainly did. I suppose you could say that Hitler would have been smarter if he'd taken things more slowly and made National Socialism a state religion - then spread it out through Europe and other places - and called it 'persectuion' when people started objecting to it' making subtle inroads into their societies.
