Reader comment on item: Canada's Muslims, Not of One Mind
in response to reader comment: splitting the moon and Muhammad Journey to Jerusalem

Submitted by the Grand Infidel of Kaffiristan (Australia), Dec 11, 2011 at 21:50

Mr Slayhy, seeking to justify his beleif in his fable to other people writes:

"....mmmm.... but you cannot tell me about LA if you never visited LA and you have no media to show you what LA is

Although Muhammad never visited Jerusalem, he described to his people the location of places in Jerusalem, and told them where every caravan is on its way to Makkah and how long it will take to arrive to Makkah and told them the names of the people in the caravans and their locations"

Of course, not having media to seek information from - he used the only tool available - word of mouth.

i.e. he recounted details from tales he had heard from people who were actually there - traders or others.
