Dear "Richard the Lion heart",

You said that "those who put the Koran together had no idea ......"

I didn't put any comments since apparently you have not read anything about the first 13 years of the Prophet's message, or the remaining 10 years, or the life of his companions, or the Four The Rightly-Guided Caliphs (According to Islamic Sources). Your claims seem to be copied from or base on impression from sites that describe Islam from poor research, misinterpreted/mistranslated verses, and distort stories and making them into facts. Just because all the sources you read about never mentioned the word love in Islam, doesn't mean that it's true.

If you are searching about the true nature about Islamic faith, you need to be fair in your research. You need to look on both sides, Muslim and Non-Muslim, without making assumptions that Muslims are hiding the truth. The internet is full of mistranslated Quranic Verses and misuse of Quotes to support false claims. Its interesting to see how people who live in the 21 century make claims about 600's B.C., using less Islamic sources at that time, and more of nothing but their imagination. If you want to argue about Islam using Muslim sources, you need to make sure first that they are true, and puts into account all what we know about the subject!!

Muhammad was a wealthy merchant before prophethood, and all what he gained from The Message during his life was giving the poor, supporting widows, freeing slaves, helping those who are in dept ,the loss of his beloved Uncle and Wife, 2 (or more) assassination attempts, being kicked out of his home, humiliation and hatred by his family. Did any one in 600's B.C. claim that Blacks and Whites were equal? Read the Last Sermon! Probably you never heard about that. READ THE HISTORY OF ISLAM during the first 13 years of Mohammed's prophethood i.e. before Hijra.
