Truth about Prophet Mohammed

Reader comment on item: Bibliography – My Writings on the Rushdie Rules

Submitted by noha yousri (Egypt), Feb 6, 2006 at 06:07

Freedom does not mean that we offend people, freedom is in respecting people........
A judge cannot judge except if he studies the whole thing by himself....

The people who offended the prophet, do not have any knowledge of that great personality that has been a subject of study by many great philosophers and writers of the world: Goethe, Sir Muir, Ghandi , and others..

Nowadays people speak of Islam without knowledge.....WHY???
Is it the civilization that teaches ignorance??? or it teaches to inspect the truth??

People need to know what are the principles of Islam that the prophet taught....and stop taking knowledge from people around them who have molested the truth.....GO for the truth by yourself.

These are excerpts of an article written by "Azmat Khan" at
http://www.usc.edu/dept/MSA/fundamentals/prophet/lifeofprophet.html

1-Speaking of what Bosworth Smith wrote on Mohammed:

"And more wonderful still is what the reverend Bosworth Smith remarks, "Head of the state as well as the Church, he was Caesar and Pope in one; but, he was pope without the pope's claims, and Caesar without the legions of Caesar, without an standing army, without a bodyguard, without a palace, without a fixed revenue. If ever any man had the right to say that he ruled by a right divine It was Mohammad, for he had all the power without instruments and without its support. He cared not for dressing of power. The simplicity of his private life was in keeping with his public life." "

2-Another excerpt from Azmat Khan's article:

"An honest man, as the saying goes, is the noblest work of God, Mohammad was more than honest. He was human to the marrow of his bones. Human sympathy, human love was the music of his soul. To serve man, to elevate man, to purify man, to educate man, in a word to humanize man-this was the object of his mission, the be-all and end all of his life. In thought, in word, in action he had the good of humanity as his sole inspiration, his sole guiding principle. "

3-Speaking of Islam , the prophet's message to the world:

" Thomas Carlyle, struck by this philosophy of life writes "and then also Islam-that we must submit to God; that our whole strength lies in resigned submission to Him, whatsoever he does to us, the thing he sends to us, even if death and worse than death, shall be good, shall be best; we resign ourselves to God." The same author continues "If this be Islam, says Goethe, do we not all live in Islam?" Carlyle himself answers this question of Goethe and says "Yes, all of us that have any moral life, we all live so. This is yet the highest wisdom that heaven has revealed to our earth." "
