Dear Hamad,

Did you systematically read the Hadith sahih from Bukhari and Muslim? If you didn't, it will be very hard for you to evaluate if the critics of Muhammad are right or wrong.

Did you read the biographies of the Prophet, written by devout muslims who lived in the first centuries after Muhammad's death?

I can recommend you Ibn Ishaq, Tabari, Ibn Sa'd. There are no better biographies than that.

I can tell you that those biographies are quite horrible. The supposedly peaceful Muhammad proved to have turned into a killing machine after moving to Madinah-al-munawwarah. And the killing continued until his death.

Please read those books and come back to discuss;

cheers,

Jan
