  1. Report On The Biography Of Mohamed (pbuh)

    Now that all governments are secular, and religions are viewed as a sign of rhetoric belief, the message of Mohammed as of all other prophets seems to be lost in vain. Amazingly, Mohammed prophesized the fall the Islam, to an extent that every Muslim in all around the world will have an uneasy life. A believer will be holding to his faith as if he is holding to burning coil. The very mission of the prophet seems to be lost nowadays. Yet, Bernard Shaw said, “If Muhammad were alive today, he would succeed in solving all those problems which threaten to destroy human civilization in our timesâ€. Bernard Shaw, an Irish dramatist, was one of the leading figures of the 20th century, also awarded a Nobel Prize for Literature. Shaw’s wish of Mohammed alive again is impossible since he died 14 centuries ago. Still, it is possible for humans who really want to “succeed in solving all those problems which threaten to destroy human civilization in our times†to realize Shaw’s aspiration. Starting from changing their own personal bad behaviors, and ending by changing the whole collapsing structure of their society. Since God said in The Koran that was sent upon Mohamed, “Surely God does not change the condition of a people until they change their own condition.) (Ar-Ra`d 13:11). That is the point of view of enlightened Muslims. Some of them choose to be silent, some are silenced. Nonetheless, those who chose silence are somewhat accomplice in the deterioration of Muslims these days. Since only Islamists, and not Muslims, are representing Islam. And some of the Shi’a division false innovations in Islam (e.g. Some Shi’a men seek to emulate the suffering of Hussein by flagellating themselves with chains) are exposed to image Islam as a violent rhetoric religion. One should take in consideration that Shi’a division represents only 10 percent of Muslims and only a small fraction of Shi’a followers follow innovations such as self flagellating. It is told that they exact product of Mohammed’s teaching. But how can that be? Since the innovation of self flagellating, for instance was not created till years after Mohammed's death, after his grandson Hussein died? Yet again, the good voices are silenced and the few ignorant Muslim people are set as the icon of the Islamic world.
  2. Report On The Biography Of Mohamed (pbuh)

    Nevertheless on the other hand, Mohammed is viewed by others, as a fake prophet, who brought a false religion that more than one billion people are mislead into. So according to jews, Mohammed was a camel trucker who, while the Byzantines and Persian empires were busy fighting each other, attempted to create a religion. They say he was inspired by Judeo-Christian religions in Arabia. Moreover, due to his charisma, he succeeded to convert Arabs convert into his religion. They also claim that in order to become rich and powerful, he made up this religion (economic and political reasons). However, it was reported that Mohammed died leaving no heritage to his family, and also had a debt to a neighboring jew, that was paid to him after. Moreover, Mohammed designed no successor after him and left the people chose their own leader. Thus, it appears that the jew’s claims are contradicting with each other. While it is thought normal that a powerful leader as Mohammed would have a great financial situation, it turned out that he was very simple in his life and encouraged simplicity and piety. Today, the teaching "the most successful of all religious personalities of the world" as The Encyclopedia Britannica calls him, are still preserved in their authentic version. The Koran is believed to be God words sent upon Mohammed. And the Hadith or Sunna, are believed to be the teaching and words of Mohammed to Muslims. During the last 14 centuries, numerous powerful empires expanded the religion Islam from Malaysia in the east, till Spain in the west. And in all these areas, One God was worshiped; charity was collected and given to poor; drinking wine or stealing were prohibited and punished…etc; and most of all people were not judged on their wealth or power, but rather on their faith, hence, racism was banned. It is said that Mohammed said: “All mankind is from Adam and Eve, an Arab has no superiority over a non-Arab nor a non-Arab has any superiority over an Arab; also a white has no superiority over a black nor a black has any superiority over a white - except by piety and good actionâ€. As a result, a strong sense of ethos was established from the smallest scale (self abstinence), to the largest scale (Islamic government applied the Shari‘a or God commands on the opposite of secular government). And last but not least, Mohammed invited people to reject blindly accepting the beliefs and values society imposes on them and to ponder by pushing aside all the prejudices, taboos and constraints on their minds.

    Here is my draft, I tried to be objectif, but honestly I couldn't stop the flow of anger that runs in my veins :D . the anger resulting of the many attacks and falsification Islam and muslims are exposed to. :D Please take a few minutes reading my draft and don't hesitate in giving correction or leaving feedback, thanks :D Note that any error or false claim in my draft are due to my mistake may Allah forgive me for it, don't be offended if you find something wrong, it's again due to my short understanding, and please note also that most of my attendance is non-muslims... ------------------------------------------------------------- Mohamed is considered by some the last prophet of God. And he was considered by others a murderer a liar, an evil cult leader or even a camel trucker. He has been the most criticized personality in history of human kind. Yet his very message was misunderstood or misrepresented or, for the 1 billion Muslims all around the world, it has been the way of their life. Some attribute to him the cause of war in the Middle East. They may call him and his followers terrorists. However, he brought to earth the third great monotheistic religion that has changed the course of history of humankind forever. All sources seem to agree that the prophet Muhammad was born in Mecca in the Arabian Peninsula in 570. He turned to be orphan when he was only 5. And he was raised by his relatives. At the age of 25 he married Khadija to whom he was working as a trader. It is also reported that he took some time meditating in a cave and sharing food with the passing-by. He began receiving revelation at the age of 40. He preached since then until he died at the age of 63. During that period, he was opposed by Meccans as well as by jews and Christian tribes in the city. And as they saw that too many began joining him, they offered him to be their king but he refused to put down his mission. He replied to them: “"if they placed the sun in my right hand and the moon in my left, to force me to renounce my work, verily I would not desist thereform until God made manifest His cause, or I perished in the attempt." According to Muslim biographies, In only 23 years, he succeeded in changing the whole of the Arabian Peninsula from idol worship and paganism to the worship of One God; from tribal quarrels and wars to national solidarity and cohesion; from drunkenness and debauchery to sobriety and piety; from lawlessness and anarchy to disciplined living; from utter moral bankruptcy to the highest standards of moral excellence. Human history has never known such a complete transformation of a people or a place before or since.
