Dear Haseeb...

actually, you did the most predictable. You took refuge in the 'product' of Mohammed, and spoke of this as 'God'.. what I mean is.. you humbled yourself before Allah.. ok, but the problem is, to be Muslim, you must do 2 things at least..

1/ Believe in the Unity of Allah

2/ Believe Mohammed is his messenger.. Last messenger.

It all hinges on that 2nd point.

I say you have not questioned because I can look at Mohammed's life from the evidence and I find myself recoiling from a man who was a strange mixture of self gratification in a cloak of religion. He somehow had the idea that Allah wants to satisfy his worldly desires completely, but NOT the rest of the believers.

He had "revelations" but then, when he went against them.....ZAP..'new' revelation. Usually these were in direct connection with is use of women.

"Quran - "Treat all wives equally" so..he is discovered in bed with a girl out of turn suddenly REVELATOIN "AAH.. I have made lawful for you..its all ooook"... come now Haseeb.. can you not see through this ?

His adopted son's WIFE..he married her.. yet it was a terrible and immoral thing even to the pagan Arabs..suddenly REVELATION "Aaa..its alll ok.. this is so they can see that something immorral is actually ok"

This incident of course has a background context of Mohammed having seen her naked and his desire kindled..then suddenly she wants to divorce ? the circumstances are much too compelling for this to be anything other than pure human lust.

I challenge you to find any prophet in the Old testament who did any such thing, and who then JUSTIFIED it with some revelation from God. You can use David..Solomon.. anyone..i don't care. not a single one of them ever came out with such rubbish.

We do not regard David or Solomon as 'Prophets' in the strict sense, they were kings, who had an occasional prophetic role, but they were always in the framework of the Law, and their mistakes and sins were clearly noted and David AND Solomon regretted their over indulgence with Women and in David's case his murder of Uriah. Mohammed never showed remorse for anything he did from what I can see, instead...if it involved women, he just reinforced his own self gratifying position.

He 'asks permission' from his wives in his old age to be nursed by Aisha..why ? She was his FAVORITE.. why did the other wives not complain? simple..because the last time they grumbled against him he threatened to DIVORCE AND REPLACE them.... so..I honestly..man to man..not as 'Christian to Muslim..just man to man.. ask you to open your eyes mate. In Australia, we have a saying "Even blind Nellie can see this" meaning of course an old lady who is blind..and its so clear that even SHE can see it.

No disrespect intended, but I assure you I really get animated when I tackle this subject.

peace

David
