in response to reader comment: Nozzi: You need to read more about your prophet's actions

I refer to your reply about the Meccans that protested against Prophet Muhammad. However, Muhammad was doing the duties of Allah about idolatry in which Allah forbided. As Muhammad assisted Allah to preach the message to Meccans, why should Meccans protested against our religion, Muslims? The fault indeed is from the Meccans.

For instance, if Meccans did not protested against Muhammad, there wouldn't be violence from him. Let me give you example: Let's say, you go to somebody's house and comments against somebody's reason. If that person that you visit does not quarrel with you and beats you, you would not fight with him? What if that person that you visit begins to fight with you when your intention is to share to them your religion so as to save him, would you still remain silence and let him start beating you. Surely! You will fight back.

The same is applied to Meccans. Why should Meccans protested against Prophet Muhammad when his intention was to enable to be saved from the Last Judgment Day? Meccans were the first to start protesting against Muhammad and Muhammad had no other choice but to fight back. Why should Meccans offended Muslims first and they should be condemned the same by Allah? Meccans gave no respect to the Prophet in which Allah is contented with his action for his preaching mission. Meccans have to blame themselves why should they protested against Muhammad and his followers, such a silly move.

Plato, if someone has a good wish that you would be saved in the Judgment Day, yet you give him a punch on his cheek. Is it a right move? Instead, you should be grateful of his action in preaching to you since he wants to bring you choice in the future. You might not accept his opinion and it does not mean you can give him a punch or to protest against him.

The same to Meccans. If Meccans didn't want to accept Muslim's teaching, they just walked off and needed not to protest against Muhammad and his followers. Why should Meccans despise our Prophet Muhammad then? As Prophet Muhammad was the founder of Muslims and that Allah was the one that sent him for mission, to despise and to protest against Muhammad is to protest against Allah since Allah is the one that sent Muhammad for preaching mission. The acts of protesting against Muhammad are undoubtedly to be against by all our muslim people since we respect Muhammad the most in our religion.

The following are the extracts of the unpardonable move from Meccans:

The disgusted Meccans only PROTESTED when Muhammad started abusing their religion as reported by his first biographer, Ibn Ishaaq (Page 118-119 of Guillaume's translation of The Life of Muhammad, published by Oxford University press, Pakistan) "When the apostle openly displayed Islam as God ordered him his people did not withdraw or turn against him, so far as I have heard, until he spoke disparagingly of their gods. When he did that they took great offence and resolved to treat him as an enemy…."
