When Prophet Muhammad entered Makkah and liberated it from idolatry, he forgave his enemies, announcing: “You may go. You are free.”
Professor Esposito stressed this fact: “Islam brought a reformation; it was the call once again to total submission (Islam) to Allah and the implementation of His will as revealed in its complete form one final time to Muhammad, the last, or ‘seal,’ of the prophets. Thus, for Muhammad, Islam was not a new faith but the restoration of the true faith...”
Professor John Esposito pointed out in his book, Islam: The Straight Path that: “Muhammad was among those great religious figures, prophets and founders of religions, whose remarkable character and personality inspired uncommon confidence and commitment. His phenomenal success in attracting followers and creating a community-state that dominated Arabia could be attributed not only to the fact that he was a shrewd military strategist but also to the fact that he was an unusual man… Muhammad’s followers found him righteous, trustworthy, pious, honest and compassionate.”
Prophet Muhammad told us to be gentle to humans, animals, birds, and our environment.
Prophet Muhammad said, “I have been sent to perfect the noble traits of character.”
Hart concluded that, “it is this unparalleled combination of secular and religious influence which I feel entitles Muhammad to be considered the most influential single figure in human history.”
In his book, The 100: A Ranking Of The Most Influential Persons In History, Michael H. Hart stated: “My choice of Muhammad to lead the list of the world’s most influential persons may surprise some readers and may be questioned by others, but he was the only man in history who was supremely successful on both the religious and secular levels.”
Referring to John the Baptist, the Bible (John 1:19-21) asks, “…Who are you? And he (John) confessed, I am not the Christ. And then they asked him, What then? Are you Elijah? And he said, I am not. Are you that Prophet? And he answered, No”. So, who is that Prophet?
Muhammad was worshipping and praying to Allah, the One True God. Was Jesus doing that or not?!
