Your quote
" A woman escaped from her enemy with the help of her camel. She told Muhammed (peace upon him) that she decided to sacrifice her camel to Allah because of her successful escape. Muhammed (peace upon him) says "don't punish the camel. He helped you." What a wise and merciful personality that I admire much....

1. what kind of story is this? why is that Muslims like to kill and shed blood to please Allah? why is that, the whole islamic religion is full of blood? why does Allah get lots of pleasure from blood? It seems the modern followers of Islam are like the ancinet ones(like this woman too) ready to shed blood.

2. How does this makes Mohammed a good man? Any human being in that situation will say don't kill that animal. I think even my father would say the same thing. What is so special about this story?
Abraham Lincoln was once walking with his best a friend. A black man passed them and humbly bowed down and wished Abraham Licoln. Abraham Lincoln too bowed humbly and greeted the black man. Abraham Lincoln's friend watching this and getting amazed, asked Abraham Lincoln, "Why did you wish that black man like that?"...(in those days blacks were looked down upon and he didn't like the way Lincoln respected the black man).......Abraham Licoln answered, "i don't want him to be more humble than me!"....what a genuis answer!
I find this story more inspiring than the story you gave about Muhammed.
Thanks,
Submitting....
