Reader comment on item: Muslims Respond to a President Obama
in response to reader comment: islamists are stuck in 7th century Arabia

Submitted by Nasif Numeiry Padate (Philippines), Dec 8, 2008 at 21:23

Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him) has changed the lives of the Quraish during his time through diplomacy. He never intimidated the non-belivers. He showed them the utmost good character. And by doing so, they voluntarily embraced Islam whole heartedly. Prophet left us two things which if we hold it, we will never go stray. These are the Holy Qur'an and the Hadith of Prophet Muhammad. Hence, we should follow the ways of the Prophet in dealing with non-muslims, not the way we see fit. Otherwise, we will never succeed in the propagation of Islam. The President-elect Obama is a man of wisdom. He knows what is best for him and to the whole world. He is a man of vision. A man who wants change. Thus, the muslim world must give him a chance to make his vision be realized.
