Islam means "submission to God in peace". Islam teaches there is only One God, whose primary name is "Allah" in the Arabic language. Islam is the same essential message given to all the prophets, from Adam, Noah, Abraham, Moses, Jesus, and finally to the Last Prophet, Muhammad, (peace be upon them all). They all proclaimed the same basic Divine message: worship only God, stop worshipping human beings and other created things There's a different between Islam and Muslims!! What's the purpose of life? What Do You Know About Islam? Not what you have heard about Islam, not what you have seen in the actions of some Muslims, but what do you really know about Islam?

What Did His Followers Say?




"His name was Muhammad" (peace and blessings be upon him)

To begin: You may be a Christian Protestant, Catholic, Jew, an atheist or an agnostic; or you may belong to any of many different religious denominations existing in today's world. You might even be a communist or believe in man's democracy as the rule on earth. Whoever you are and whatever ideological or political beliefs, social habits you may hold, there is no doubt - you should understand what others have to say about this man.

The world has had its share of great personalities. But these were one sided figures who distinguished themselves in but one or two fields, such as religious thought or military leadership. The lives and teachings of these great personalities of the earth are shrouded in the mist of time. There is so much speculation about the time and place their birth, the mode and style of their life, the nature and detail of their teachings and the degree and measure of their success or failure that is impossible for humanity to reconstruct, accurately the lives and teachings of these men and women.

But this is not the case of this man, Muhammad, peace and blessings be upon him, who accomplished so much in such diverse fields of human thought and behavior in the fullest blaze of human history. Every detail of his private life and public utterances has been accurately documented and faithfully preserved up until our day. The authenticity of the records so preserved is vouched for not only by the faithful followers but even by his prejudiced critics.

Muhammad, peace and blessings be upon him, was a religious teacher, a social reformer, a moral guide, an administrative colossus, a faithful friend, a wonderful companion, a devoted husband, a loving father - all in one. No other man in history ever excelled or equaled him in any of these different aspects of life - but it was only for the selfless personality of Muhammad, peace and blessings be upon him, to achieve such incredible perfection.

He was by far, the most remarkable man that ever set foot on this earth. He preached a religion, founded a state, built a nation, laid down a moral code, initiated numerous social and political reforms, established a powerful and dynamic society to practice and represent his teachings and completely revolutionized the worlds of human thought and behavior for all times to come.

Muhammad, peace and blessings be upon him, was born in what was then known as Felix Arabia, fourteen hundred years ago. He started his mission of preaching a religion of monotheism; a Way of Life based on the surrender, submission and obedience to the Commandments of Almighty God, in sincerity and peace.

The word "Islam" in Arabic means "the submission to God, in peace."

Muhammad's (peace and blessings be upon him) mission began at the age of forty and departed from this world at the age of sixty-three. During this short period of 23 years of his prophethood, he changed the complete Arabian Peninsula from paganism and idolatry to 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 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 - and IMAGINE all these unbelievable wonders in JUST OVER TWO DECADES.

Muhammad, peace and blessings be upon him, was nothing more or less than a human being. but he was a man with a noble mission, which was to unite humanity on the worship of ONE and ONLY ONE GOD and to teach them the way to honest and upright living, based on the commands of God. He always described himself as, 'A Servant and Messenger of God' and so indeed every action of his proclaimed to be.

Today after a lapse of fourteen centuries, the life and teachings of Muhammad, peace and blessings be upon him, have survived without the slightest loss, alteration or interpolation. They offer the same undying hope for treating mankind's many ills, which they did when he was alive. This is not a claim of Mohammed's(peace and blessings be upon him) followers, but the inescapable conclusion forced upon by a critical and unbiased history.

The least YOU can do as a thinking and concerned human being is to stop for a moment and ask your self: Could these statements sounding so extraordinary and revolutionary really be true? And supposing they really are true and you did not know this man Muhammad, peace and blessings be upon him, or hear about him, isn't it time you responded to this tremendous challenge and put in some effort to know him?

It will cost you nothing, but it may prove to be the beginning of a completely new era in your life.

We invite you to make a discovery of this wonderful man, Muhammad, peace and blessings be upon him, the like of whom never walked on the face of this earth.

Ayshah & Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him) - The True Love Story for Eternity



The Truth About the Age of Ayshah and Her Marriage to Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him).
by Yusuf Estes

Many things are being said about the Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him) these days. Some of the accusations are downright amazing and chilling even to consider someone would say it, much less be involved in this type of slander and smear campaign.
Let's consider some of the questions and what facts really exist about these concerns. Let's set the record straight once and for all.

A Brief Overview of Basic Facts

What is the true historical evidence about the person life of prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him)? What was his life style? What about his marriage to Khadijah (his first wife)? How did the offer of marriage to Ayshah really take place? Who made the offer? Was there any coercion or compulsion? What was her attitude? How did she reflect on it in later years? What did she have to say about it all? How did she feel about their love and intimacy?

He was the most honest and fair of all the people living in his community. None was respected more for honesty, integrity, sobriety and humbleness.

He had no bad habits and did not engage in drinking or relations with women, although it was common place amongst his people.

He never took a girlfriend nor a mistress in his life and never even attended parties or the like at anytime in his life.

His first personal encounter with a woman was his own wife, Khadijah, and that was for marriage. He was 25 years old and she was 15 years older (40).

He was only married to Khadijah until her death at the age of 65 years old.

There was a long time of mourning and sadness during which he was offered marriage to several women of their families.

He did not accept the first offer of marriage to Ayshah when her father had come to him with the proposal, instead he married an older, large woman named Sawdah.

Ayshah had been offered in marriage and engaged prior to being offered to the prophet, peace and blessings be upon him. That marriage never took place.

When Ayshah was older, again her father offered her in marriage and the proposal was accepted.

The whole family was happily involved and most elated in having the prophet of God as their close relative through marriage.

Ayshah herself was very happy with this marriage as is evidenced by the hundreds of teachings she later related after his death (peace and blessings be upon him).

Details of Clear Proofs and Evidences

What is the truth behind of the age of prophet's wife, Ayesha?
Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him) did not go to Ayesha at all. There was only the offer of marriage, never anything less than this - and the offer was not from the prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him) to Ayesha - it was from her father to the prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him).

Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him) never had sex outside of marriage.
First of all, let us be crystal clear about a very important subject. The prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him) never had sex at all, until after being married, at the age of 25, to a widowed woman, Khadijah, who was 15 years older than he was.
When his wife Khadijah died a number of people tried to encourage the prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) to take another wife and get married again. Ayshah's name was mentioned, but he chose to marry Sawdah, who was known for her big size.
All of this is well documented and preserved in the annuls of Muslim scholars for fourteen centuries.

How was Ayesha viewed by others at the time and throughout the history of Islam?
She was highly respected as the daughter of Abu Bakr, a man known as "As-Siddiq" (The one who verifies truth). Abu Bakr was the life long friend of the prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him) and the first man to accept Islam after revelation of Quran started.

What was Ayesha like?
Ayesha was very intelligent and brilliant in her mind and excellent in treatment of her parents. She was known to give full respect to her husband, Muhammad, peace and blessings be upon him. She was once accused by some hypocrites of immorality, but in her innocence she did not even know what she was being accused of until her mother explained it to her. And it was Allah who cleared her name forever, by mentioning her purity and innocence in the Quran (Surah An-Nur chapter 24). She became the first of women scholars and teachers of Islam. No other woman narrated as many hadiths as Ayesha.

Marriage offer first came from who?
Khawlah (a Muslim companion woman), suggested the marriage of Ayesha to the prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him). He did not accept it.

Who next offered her hand in marriage to the prophet (peace and blessings be upon him)?
Abu Bakr had offered his daughter in marriage to someone else prior to the offer made to the prophet Muhammad, peace and blessings be upon him. Abu Bakr sent his wife out to bring in his daughter to offer her in marriage to the prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) and then she returned back outside to play. The prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) did not accept even though it was very much the custom of the time to accept such an offer of marriage from someone as close as Abu Bakr was to the prophet, peace and blessings be upon him. There is an ayah in the Quran related to this topic, in Surah An-Nisa', chapter 4, verse 19 - telling us women cannot be inherited against their will. This was the first time for such a ruling in favor of women and it came about to protect women from the very thing people are now trying to accuse our religion of supporting. The truth bears out over the falsehood, in this case very clear.

What did Allah reveal in the Quran about forced marriages and child brides (not old enough to be married)?

"O you who believe, it is for not legal for you to inherit women against their will. And don't make it difficult for them so you can take from what you have given them (marriage dowry) unless they commit open immorality. And live with them in goodness (Al-Marufi). Because if you dislike them, it could be you dislike something and Allah makes in it a lot of "khair" (good)." [Noble Quran 4:19]

How long before the next offer of marriage by her father to the prophet (peace and blessings be upon him)?
When Ayesha was a few years older, her father Abu Bakr, again had the mother bring her into the house to offer her in marriage to the prophet, peace and blessings be upon him. The prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) did accept this offer made some years later, when Ayesha was old enough according to Islam (able to bear children).

Was she now considered by Allah to be old enough for marriage?
Yes. This time is was accepted and plans for the marriage were set in place. She tells us of the excitement, preparation and wonderful experience of her being offered and accepted in marriage to the prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) and their closeness and intimacy. All of this is described in the most beautiful context with nothing left out and yet nothing disgusting - only beauty and enjoyment as described in her own words. The lessons she taught have helped married couples in Islam to know what the limits are and how to share the most pleasure between a married couple in both physical and spiritual ways.

Did she want to be married to him?
Yes. She tells us this was exactly what she wanted all along. The hadiths (narrations by Ayshah) are very clear about all details and must be read in order to fully appreciate the fullness and completeness of their relationship together.

How did she reply to her father's offer to the prophet, peace and blessings be upon him?
She was very shy and said her silence was understood by her father that she was indeed, accepting the proposal for marriage. This is mentioned by her, along with other important information for Muslims to know about marriage proposals, dowry and proper ways to approach the father or guardian of a woman with the topic of marriage.

What was Ayshah's status after marrying the prophet (peace and blessings be upon him)? (A Brief Overview)

No other woman was loved more by our prophet (peace and blessings be upon him).

He wanted to die with his head in her lap (and he did).

They were in total love with each other the way everyone would love to be in love.

Their romance is known to all of the Muslim world and how much they really enjoyed each others company - always.

They planned on being together in Jannah.

She never said a single bad word against her husband during his life, or after his death. Is there a woman living today who could compare to this great woman?

What was the "norm" regarding the subject of marriage at the time of Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him) and Ayesha?

Actually, the people of Arabia had the custom of marrying off any of their girls at the age of the beginning of their monthly cycles.
Even the Arch Bishop of Canterbury would not have been blamed for marrying a young girl back one hundred years or so as this was still accepted at that time.
Consider the Catholic Church claims that Mary, may Allah's peace be on her, was married to Joseph before having Jesus (peace and blessings be upon him) and her age was just a year or two older than Ayshah's age, but Joseph was mentioned as being in his 90's! (we do not have this story in Islam, because Mary is considered a true virgin and never married and never had other children except for Jesus Christ (peace and blessings be upon him).

The marriage of Ayesha to Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him) is nothing less than the best love story ever written.

Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet leaves much to be desired by comparison. Consider the contrast and be honest in your conclusion:

Romeo and Juliet both were running around behind their parents back - with someone whom they did not approve of at all - their families were fighting each other in a feud and they forbid them to be together at all.

Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him) was being offered the hand of the daughter of his best friend, Abu Bakr in a marriage environment. All of the family members were happy about this and had approved of the marriage.

Romeo and Juliet had their affair in secrecy without the benefit of clergy (not married).

Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him) and Ayesha waited until after marriage and even after a courtship period described in beautiful details by Ayesha herself.

Romeo and Juliet both committed suicide. According to Judaism and Christianity as well as Islam - anyone who commits suicide will go to Hell forever.

Ayesha and Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him) both believed in One God - the God of the Jews and the God of Christ (peace and blessings be upon him) and they both preached a message of salvation through direct repentance to Almighty God.

Above all, they will be together in the Paradise where they will live - happily ever after.

Honestly - Which one is the true romance story?

We pray to Allah to accept this humble effort to clarify misunderstandings and remove doubts some people may entertain regarding the relationship of two of the greatest personalities ever to come forth on this earth, ameen.

Dear reader, thank you for taking the time to read and review this important subject and for keeping an open mind and heart regarding Islam's treatment of women and marriage in general and the relationship of our prophet, peace and blessings be upon him and his wife, Ayesha.

Rights of Foreign Nationals in Islamic Countries (part 1 of 2)





Description: This two-part article series discusses the rights of non-Muslims living in Islamic countries. Part 1 discusses the mercy Islam shows to all creation and about the sanctity of non-Muslims’ lives and property.

his paper was originally presented at the seminar Religious Minorities: Circumstances and Practices with the title: "The Rights of Foreign Nationals in Islamic Countries".

I have divided the paper into two parts:

1. The principle that the lives and property of non-Muslims are sacred

2. The rights of foreign nationals in Islamic countries


Before proceeding to talk about the first topic, it is necessary to stress that God has honored the human race and blessed human being above other creatures. God says in the Quran: "We have certainly honored the children of Adam and carried them on the land and sea and provided for them of the good things, and preferred them over much of what We have created with marked preference." [Quran 17:70]

Prophet Muhammad put this principle into practice. When people asked him why he stood for the funeral procession of a Jewish man, he replied: "Does he not have a human soul?"

God has exhorted people, in turn, to show compassion and kindness to one another. He says in the Quran: "Do good. Indeed, God loves those who do good." [Quran 2:195] This verse is a general command to treat all people well.

We also have where the Quran says: "Indeed, God commands justice and good conduct." [Quran 16:90]

The Quran exhorts children to show kindness and good conduct to their parents, even if those parents are polytheists who strive to get their children to accept polytheism. However, those children must continue to show their parents love and kindness, as their parents took care of them when they were small.

The Prophet’s Sunnah[1] is full of examples of showing kindness to all people, and even to animals. Even when slaughtering animals for food, the utmost care should be taken to make it as painless as possible. The Prophet said: "If you slaughter an animal, then do it well. You should make sure your blade is sharp and alleviate the animal’s suffering."

Islamic Law stress the values of mercy and compassion, and does not take violence lightly, like we see sectarian extremist groups doing these days.

God says in the Quran: "We only sent you (O Muhammad) as a mercy to all people." [Quran 21:107]

Prophet Muhammad said: "If you show mercy to those on Earth, the One in Heaven will show mercy to you." He also said: "Those who do not show mercy to others will not receive mercy." and: "Those who are merciful receive mercy from the Most Merciful Lord."

He also said: "Kindness beautifies everything it touches, and its absence makes things ugly."

The Prophet confirmed that charity is for everyone who needs it when he said: "There is a reward for giving charity to any creature possessing a living heart."

He confirmed that we should let no excuse prevent us from doing works that are beneficial to others when he said: "If the last hour arrives while you are about to plant a sapling, then you should finish planting that sapling if you can."

Islamic Law teaches the humane treatment of animals and categorically prohibits abusing them. It even prevents the owners of livestock from separating children from their mothers. We should then consider how much more human beings are entitled to mercy and kindness.

The Prophet’s Companion, Abdullah ibn Masud, gives the following account:

We were with Allah’s Messenger on a journey. He went off to relieve himself. While he was gone, we saw a bird with two chicks and we took away her chicks. The bird started flapping her wings. The Prophet came back and said: "Who has upset this bird by taking away her children? Give her children back to her."

On another occasion, Prophet Muhammad saw an ants nest that had been burned. He said: "Who burned this?" When the people admitted they had done so, the Prophet said: "No one but God should punish with fire."

These, and many other accounts like them, demonstrate the principle that a Muslim is to show justice, kindness, and mercy to all people.

This brings us to our first topic of discussion:

1- The principle that the lives and property of non-Muslims are sacred

Unfortunately, many people around the world today would be incredulous to hear that the lives and property of non-Muslims are sacred in Islam. There are reasons for this incredulity. The clearest reason is that people grossly misunderstand the Islamic concept of disassociation with unbelief. There are those who understand this principle to mean that the lives of unbelievers are not protected, even if those unbelievers have not perpetrated any injustice or violence against the Muslims. Others misunderstand it to mean that unbelief is a sufficient reason to de-value the lives and property of non-Muslims. Then there are those who think that it means when misfortune befalls a non-Muslim, the Muslims take it as an occasion for joy. All of this is wrong.

Therefore, it is important to stress the general principle in Islamic Law that the lives of all people, Muslims and non-Muslims, are sacred and inviolable. This is clearly indicated by the sacred texts of Islam, and it needs to be shown to the people that those who try to argue otherwise are deliberately misinterpreting the scriptures and taking things out of context.

For example, the Quran says:

"Fight in the cause of Allah those who fight you, but do not transgress limits; for God does not love transgressors." [Quran 2:190]


This verse is clear proof that it is forbidden to kill non-Muslims who are not actively fighting the Muslims in battle.

Indeed, Islam exhorts us to keep people alive and to save people’s lives whenever the chance arises. God says in the Quran: "On that account, We decreed for the Children of Israel that whosoever kills a human being for other than punishment for murder or corruption in the Earth, it shall be as if he had killed all humanity, and whoso saves the life of one, it shall be as if he had saved the lives of all humanity." [Quran 5:32]

Even on the battlefield in the midst of war, Islam does not permit killing people indiscriminately. There are many restrictions. Among the people who cannot be killed are monks, the clergy, the elderly, women, children, and any other non-combatants.

Nafi ibn Umar relates that Prophet Muhammad saw a woman among those slain on the battlefield and he condemned that and prohibited the killing of women and children.[2]

During a battle, the Prophet saw people gathered together. He dispatched a man to find out why they were gathered. The man returned and said: "They are gathered around a slain woman." So the Prophet said: "She should not have been attacked!"[3] [Sunan Abī Dāwūd]

The sanctity of non-Muslims’ property follows from the sanctity of their lives. If their lives are inviolable, then their property is inviolable as well. It can neither be confiscated nor destroyed. It cannot be misappropriated through fraud or deception. The wealth of all non-Muslims is inviolable except that of those actively engaged in war against the Muslims.

When Prophet Muhammad said: "Whoever commits fraud is not one of us," he was speaking generally about every act of fraud, regardless of whether the victim is a Muslim or a non-Muslim.

Those who try to interpret the Quran and Sunnah to argue that Islam permits transgression against the lives and wealth of non-Muslims selectively quote passages from the Quran and Sunnah out of context. They present texts with specific relevance as if they were general when the context clearly shows this to be otherwise.

Rights of Foreign Nationals in Islamic Countries (part 2 of 2)


Description: This two-part article series discusses the rights of non-Muslims living in Islamic countries.  Part 2 defines who are the “people under a covenant” and lists the rights of such non-Muslims.

2-  The rights of foreign nationals in Islamic countries

In this context, the word "foreigner" is to be understood as a modern legal term.  It refers to those who reside in a country other than the country of their legal nationality.  In order to address this issue, I will explain the Islamic legal term of "people under a covenant" and show that it applies to non-Muslims who enter a Muslim country as ambassadors, workers, businesspeople, tourists, and visitors. 

In Islamic Law, the people under a covenant are defined as: the subjects of a non-Muslim country who enter a Muslim country within the context of a treaty or international agreement that implies peace or mutual interest. 

In other words, anyone who has permission to enter a Muslim country falls under the legal rulings of one who is under a covenant, regardless of their purpose for doing so.  This ruling entails the following:

1.    If a Muslim country admits foreigners within its borders, that country is responsible to protect them and guarantee their safety.  It must prohibit anyone to harm them or transgress against their persons or their wealth.  Whoever transgresses against them is a lawbreaker deserving of the criminal punishments elaborated in the legal texts for that crime, and the state is obligated to carry out the punishment against the perpetrator. 

Regardless of the reason why the person entered the country, the murder of a person under a covenant is a major sin in Islam.  It is enough that Prophet Muhammad said: "Whoever kills one with whom we have a covenant will not smell the scent of Paradise, though its fragrance can be detected from the distance of a journey of forty years."[1]

It should be emphasized that in the event a person under a covenant commits a crime, it is not up to the people, but the state, to punish them.  The state has exclusive jurisdiction to prosecute the criminal through the proper procedures of the judicial system.  Guilt must be established in a court of law and then sentencing must take place in accordance with the law. 

It is a crime to transgress against people under a covenant in any way, whether the transgression is murder, assault, robbery, or slander.  The Prophet said: "God will deny Paradise to any person who murders someone with whom we have a covenant, and he will not even smell its fragrance."[2]

He also said: "It is not permissible to receive the wealth of those with whom we have a covenant except through a lawful transaction."[3]

2.    Foreign residents of a Muslim country have the right to practice their own religion and teach their faith to their children, with the condition that they do not proselytize to the Muslims or try to spread their faith throughout the Muslim society. 

3.    As long as those under a covenant abide by the law, they cannot be publicly disgraced in any way or insulted because of their religion.  They cannot be slandered. 

4.    They have the right to travel, the right to assembly, the right to avail themselves of all public services, and the right to reside where they wish.  The only exceptions to the right to residence are the sacred precincts within the cities of Mecca and Madinah.  They can associate with anyone they like, and they have equal rights to all public amenities like water, public parks, public transportation, and the marketplace. 

5.    Islam permits foreign residents to remain upon their own religious beliefs as long as they do not make their religious practices overtly conspicuous to the Muslim population or proselytize to them.  They cannot be compelled to accept Islam.  They have the right to learn their religion and teach it to their co-religionists.  They are allowed to establish religious schools for themselves so they can teach their children. 

6.    They have the right to own property, to earn an income, and to engage in commerce in the Muslim country.  However, they may not sell anything that is unlawful in Islam, even if it is permitted in their own faith.  They are permitted to avail themselves of all public resources, like firewood, pastureland, and wild game, according to the laws of the land.

Muhammed (peace be upon him) – a brief description





You may be a christian protestant, catholic, jew, an atheist or an agnostic; or you may belong to any of many different religious denominations existing in today's world. You might even be a communist or believe in man's democracy as the rule on earth.


Whoever you are and whatever ideological or political beliefs, social habits you may hold, there is no doubt - You must know this Man - Muhammad (peace be upon him).



He was by far the most remarkable man that ever set foot on this Earth. He preached a religion, founded a state, built a nation, laid down a moral code, initiated numerous social and political reforms, established a powerful and dynamic society to practice and represent his teachings and completely revolutionized the worlds of human thought and behavior for all times to come.



"His Name is Muhammad" (peace be upon him).



He was born in Arabia in the year 570 c.e. (common era), started his mission of preaching the religion of truth, Islam (submission to one God at the age of forty and departed from this world at the age of sixty-three.


During this short period of 23 years of his Prophethood, he changed the complete Arabian peninsula from paganism and idolatry to 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 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 - and imagine all these unbelievable wonders in just over two decades.



The world has had its share of great personalities. But these were one sided figures who distinguished themselves in but one or two field, such as religious thought or military leadership. The lives and teachings of these great personalities of the world are shrouded in the mist of time. There is so much speculation about the time and place their birth, the mode and style of their life, the nature and detail of their teachings and the degree and measure of their success or failure that is impossible for humanity to reconstruct accurately the lives and teachings of these men.



Not so this man. Muhammad (peace be upon him) accomplished so much in such diverse fields of human thought and behavior in the fullest blaze of human history. Every detail of his private life and public utterances has been accurately documented and faithfully preserved to our day. The authenticity of the records so preserved are vouched for not only by the faithful followers but even by his prejudiced critics.



Muhammad (peace be upon him) was a religious teacher, a social reformer, a moral guide, an administrative colossus, a faithful friend, a wonderful companion, a devoted husband, a loving father - all in one. no other man in history ever excelled or equaled him in any of these different aspects of life - but it was only for the selfless personality of Muhammad (peace be upon him) to achieve such incredible perfection.



Muhammad (peace be upon him) was nothing more or less than a human being. But he was a man with a noble mission, which was to unite humanity on the worship of one and only one god and to teach them the way to honest and upright living based on the commands of god. he always described himself as, 'a servant and messenger of god' and so indeed every action of his proclaimed to be.



Today after a lapse of fourteen centuries, the life and teachings of Muhammad (peace be upon him) have survived without the slightest loss, alteration or interpolation. They offer the same undying hope for treating mankind's many ills, which they did when he was alive. This is not a claim of Mohammed's (peace be upon him) followers, but the inescapable conclusion forced upon by a critical and unbiased history. 



The least you can do as a thinking and concerned human being is to stop for a moment and ask your self: could these statements sounding so extraordinary and revolutionary really be true? and supposing they really are true and you did not know this man Muhammad (peace be upon him) or hear about him, isn't it time you responded to this tremendous challenge and put in some effort to know him? 


It will cost you nothing, but it may prove to be the beginning of a completely new era in your life. 


We invite you to make a discovery of this wonderful man, Muhammad (peace be upon him), the like of whom never walked on the face of this earth.




"Are you that Prophet" [bible, john 1:20]

That Prophet?

Who was he?

Comparing Jesus & Mmuhammad


"The comforter, the spirit of truth, whom the father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all that i said unto you."
[Bible - john 14:26]



Jesus, the son of Mary, said, "a Messenger will come after me, named Ahmad."
[Noble Quran 61:6]



the chief priests and levites asked john the baptist, "if you are not the christ (messiah), and not elijah - are you that prophet?"
[bible - john 1:20]


When the chief priests and levites asked john the baptist who he was, they asked him in a very strange way. First they questioned him as to whether or not he was the anticipated "Messiah" [christ in koine greek]. he was not the "Messiah" that had hoped for. next they asked if he was the Prophet Elijah and again he tells them, "no." now comes the really strange part. finally, they asked him if he is "that prophet?"

 Are you christ? - [no]
 Are you Elijah? - [no]
 Are you that Prophet? - [no]

What did they mean by "that Prophet?" we of course, know who the "Christ" is. After all, christians should know that "Christ" is merely a shortened form of the koine greek word "christos," intended to mean the hebrew word "Messiah."


The Jews of two thousand years ago were definitely looking for the Messiah, who it was foretold in their books, would come and lead them to victory over their oppressors and thus gain for them mastery over this world. They were much oppressed under roman domination and even their own jewish kings were seen as nothing more than puppets or agents for the disbelievers. certainly, they would have been most happy to see someone come on the scene who would defeat their roman masters and slave drivers.


Then the priests and levites asked john the baptist if he might be the prophet elijah, returning back after hundreds of years being away. There was the notion amongst them that elijah would come back. but again, john the baptist is denying he is elijah.


Then, who is he? they wonder at this man living out in the desert and forsaking wealth and luxury and fasting, avoiding the material attractions of life.


Again, they ask john the baptist who he is. "are you that Prophet?" and one more time he denies being "that Prophet," but then he does tell them about someone who will come after him soon, whom he claims he is not worthy to even unlace his shoes.


However, this does not answer the question, "who were they expecting besides the Messiah?" could it be they were looking for someone like Muhammad? (could be)


Who is that Prophet? 

Keep reading and learn who "that Prophet" is and what other proofs can be discovered within the holy texts to support this idea.


For centuries Muslims have believed Jesus (peace be upon him) was "that Prophet" mentioned in these words of the gospel of john. The Quran states one of the important features of Jesus' mission was to give the "bashir" or 'glad tidings' of the coming of the Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him. During his short missionary career that lasted not more than three years, and which was overshadowed by the hostile attitude of his own people, Jesus gave them the good news of Ahmad, (one of the forms of "Muhammad") the last Messenger of God, who would perfect the divine teaching both in theory and in practice. The Quran mentions that, jesus says:


"O children of israel! I am the Messenger of Allah {almighty god} (sent) to you, confirming the law (torah or old testament) before me, and giving glad tidings of a Messenger to come after me, whose name shall be Ahmad."

[Noble Quran 61:6]


The Quran gives the name as Ahmad, one of several ways to say Muhammad's name. Just as we have in english the name joseph, and often use a shorter form such as "joe" or the familiar form, "joey," and other names like "jonathan" which becomes "john"; "jack" or "johnny", so in the same way we find arabic has similar forms for a name. Muhammad, Ahmad and Hamad are a few of the names originating from the root word, "Hamd" (meaning 'praise) in Arabic, and can be understood as "the one who praises (God)"; "the praised one"; "praising"; etc.


Abdullah Yusuf Ali in his translation of the meanings of the Quran to English, he states, "Ahmad or Muhammad, the praised one is a translation of the koine greek word periclytos. In the present gospel of john 14:16, 15:26 and 16:7, the greek word paracletos is translated in the niv as comforter. paracletos can mean an advocate, or "one called to the help of another", "a kind friend." Muhammad (peace be upon him) was known from birth as one who brought comfort and reconciliation to family, friends and strangers alike, especially in bringing together the ties of kinship and brotherly love.


Another nick name of the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) mentioned in the bible (or at least what is left of it in the English language) is "the spirit of truth." As-Sddiq means exactly that and it is was another name given to Muhammad (peace be upon him) by those who knew his proclivity for honesty and integrity.

The new testament gospel according to john, jesus (peace be upon him) promises them the paracletos will come four times (john 14:16; 14:26; 15:26; 16:7). naturally, jesus (peace be upon him) did not return in their lifetime nor did any other Prophet for that matter, so later thinkers came up with the notion that it was not jesus "in person" but rather, jesus coming back in "spirit form." This led some Christians to assert, this was to be the holy spirit, who would descend upon the disciples on the day of the pentecost (acts 2), to witness christ and lead them into the whole truth and to be with the believers forever, and they would not die (john 3:16), but have everlasting life. also, some added verses later (see footnotes to revised standard version of the bible) to the very last chapter of mark (16), wherein, they have the spirit coming upon them in such a way they imagined themselves going to be able to speak with new languages; pick up snakes, lay hands on the sick to cure them and even drink poison and nothing would hurt them. [Luke 23:17-18]


Another point is, the paracletos, comforter or the spirit of truth, was going to dwell with us from now on. Certainly anyone could see Muhammad's influence and his Message of worshipping only one God without any partners has prevailed long after his earthly life.
