To John M.,

A typical cheap template to describe others by saying " ... are ashamed of ..". You can describe feelings of other people on your desk with your own way of thinking. But I won't work. It doesn't show reality.

Muhammed, peace upon him, founder of the Islamic civilization. %20 of world population follow his way of worshipping and life. This is fact. You can't change it at your desk by saying " How can Muslims follow his examples". Perhaps you don't read any history books. Our messenger is the only messenger or public figure whose life is recorded completely in the history. How could you say that "if those examples are not recorded?" For example, Christians know every details of marriage of Muhammed, peace upon him. But life of Jesus is unknown. Nobody knows if has was a single or not. We have both Quran, words of Allah and more than 5000 Hadiths, sayings of Muhammed, peace upon him. When hadiths were collected from local people the actual number of them was more than 600 000. Bukhari who was a Muslim historian reduced them to 5000 by considering their sources are reliable at 10th century. There are also many historians who collected sayings of our messengers. What a recording efforts. Incredible. Muslims has taken his each behaviour at home, mosque, public or everywhere as their examples as advised by Allah in Quran. It is not seen another "an example like him" who totally design a new culture by rules of God within last 14 century in human history. Not going to happen once more. I think that history will see birth of many great civilizations which can be the outcome of the efforts of many people not a single one. Perhaps that's why they teach ushow to be a team player at school .

Christians should owe something to Muslims who recognise Jesus. Can you prove that the Jesus lived on earth in a court of law? I think one question is enough.
