  1. Muhammad (PBUH) was indeed a great man and this little article doesn’t do him justice but it’s a great place to start for those who don’t know much about him and his noble character is a good way to show people that Islam isn’t all about blood and violence.

  2. I Muslim really follow the Sunnah through of Holy Quran, we can not find one verse of violence, we will find;
    AL Quran is The True Guidance of Allah.
    Islam (al Quran, ) teach ; peace, love, compassion, tolerance, forgiveness, justice for all, equality, human right, liberty and freedom of religion, speech, expression, and prosperity. Islam is mercy for all mankind. QS.21:107.

    Those who follow Islamic teaching correctly, Muslim will be a good Muslim, lovely Muslim, tolerant Muslim, rich Muslim, generous Muslim, treat all people equally, fairly, and the will be rewarded by Allah TWO Paradise. One on earth, second Hereafter. this Muslim will be named a the best Creature on earth.

    Unfortunately, Most of Muslim’s scholars, including Muslim Ahmadiyah urge Muslims to believe in the book of Hadith.
    THE BOOK OF HADITH. The book of Hadith is not the word of Allah but men’s word. those who follow the book of Hadith blindly will go astray and fall into sinful Syrik. Extremist Muslim use the book of Hadith to justify to kill innocent people like blasphemer, apostate, Heresy, gay-lesbian, infidel etc. So the book of Hadith create violence, conflict, poverty, millions innocent people around the world have been suffering, displacing and killed by Muslim’s hands. Nauzubillah, I am so sad,pity heartbreaking .

  3. From the very childhood Holy Prophet was God Gifted and blessed with extraordinary courage, though he was being brought and nurtured with ordinary kids of his age. See what happened one day:

    Muhammad (sallallāhu ‘alaihi wa sallam) was living with Halīma’s family. When he turned five years, he started accompanying other children around to graze goats in surrounding jungle. They would leave in morning returning home in the evening.
    Once when children were busy in grazing their goats as usual, suddenly a band of dacoits with frightening faces and shining swords in hands, attacked. The sight of dacoits put children in panic and they ran towards the village, except for one child, who was not frightened. He stood silent at his place, it was little Muhammad (sallallāhu ‘alaihi wa sallam).
    The dacoits never bothered to notice the presence of a small child. They rounded off the goats. When they were about to go away, the child stepped forward and said in a clear authoritative voice, “The villagers have entrusted their goats to our care. If you want to take them, first go and ask the villagers. If they agree then you can take them with you.”
    Dacoits could not help smiling at the tone and simple words of the little child and were about to escape with the goats. When little boy saw that the dacoits had not heeded him, he quickly went forward and blocked the way of the goats.
    Seeing the courage of little child, dacoit leader said angrily, “Get out of my way, let us take the goats.” “No, never, first kill me then take the goats. You cannot take the goats while I am alive.” The dacoits looked at each other in astonishment, and were surprised at the boldness of a little weak child!
    Head of dacoits went forward and tapped the child on his head with affection and asked, “Whose son you are?” The child replied, “Abdul-Muttalib’s.”
    Abdul-Muttalib was known all over Arabia. Hearing child’s reply the dacoit became soft and said, “Son of chief of Quraish should be as bold as you are. I honor your courage, and I am leaving the goats. I see in your face the light which says you will grow into a personage who would be respected by all Arabs. What is your name?” “Muhammad.” “Muhammad, Muhammad what a strange and endearing name,” dacoit muttered amusingly. He galloped away with his band saying, “Ok, little courageous fellow, peace be with you.”

  4. The Sunnah just mentions to the instructions, prohibitions, sayings, activities and implicit approvals of the Prophet Muhammad, Sallallahu alaihi Wasallam, the last Messenger Allah, Glorious is he, referred to Mankind.
