Assalaamu alaikum [Peace be to you],


:bulletblue: Why should we all learn about the prophet Mohammed -peace be upon him-?
Mohammed -peace be upon him- came into the world as the Last prophet and Messenger of the God. He -peace be upon him- came in the full blaze of contemporary history. Therefore his life, his works and his achievements are not wrapped in any mystery or conjecture. Every event and every action of his life was most carefully recorded at that time by various people and was preserved lest it should be lost to posterity.

Mohammed -peace be upon him- was the most influential of all prophets. As the Last Messenger of the God, he -peace be upon him- was a man par excellence who pulled the failing and sinking humanity out of the depths of darkness and ignorance. He was the one who saved the human soul from the spiritual bondage and showed to it the path of success and enlightenment.
In every act of his there was meaning and purpose, and in every word of his - there was wisdom and knowledge. Whether it was praying to the God, or advocating democracy or emancipating and upholding women’s rights or advocating the Supreme Human Charter, in fact in all fields of human activities, he -peace be upon him- gave perfect guidance.

Mohammed -peace be upon him- passed through all phases of life and suffered every vicissitude but he surmounted all obstacles and achieved unbelievable success. Whatever he preached, he also practiced. His mission had greatness of purpose. In fact the more one knows about the life and character of the Last Messenger, greater is the reverence for him. Compare the conditions that were prevailing at the time of his advent with the conditions that prevailed at the time of his demise. He -peace be upon him- brought about a total transformation in human life. He brought about a Lasting Revolution. He changed the course of history.

Ignorance is a horrible trait. I have a question, though. Didn't Muhammad marry a nine year old?

I studied the claim of the 9 years old bride. it's a big controversy. you find some Muslim scholars go and justify by saying it was the custom of the Arabs at that time or that she was mentally mature. but to tell the truth, I didn't find any strong evidence of this claim. I'm talking about evidence and not justification.
as a matter of fact, there are more evidences that she was from 14 to 18 years old. and the God knows best.
but you know, 9 years old makes good news for those who like to bash the prophet Mohammed -peace be upon him-.

if you're interested, please have a look at these articles:

I hope this helps

by the way, regardless of your beliefs, my respects for you for asking and liking to study. :D

Thank you for answering so respectfully!

Also, I was wondering, why must you say "Peace be Upon Him" and what is the difference between Muhammad and Mohammed? Does it matter which one you use?

I like this.
I am not of the same religion, but I believe it's always wise to learn about, and respect other religions.

I'm just honestly confused why you enjoy being a member of a group that is historically insane, believes in fairy tales and encourages its followers to be violent towards non-believers.

Don't you think you'd be happier WITHOUT Islam? I mean you could do what you'd like then.

Hopefully one day you'll realise that you've wasted thousands of days of your life worshipping thin air..
