if you want to talk about him or even criticize him, feel free to do so after having enough information to talk about. but keep in mind not to hurt the feelings of the more than a billion muslims in the world.
religion is not a joke and the believers take their faith seriously. by showing respect to other people's beliefs, you show a high and civilized image of yourself and you will get respect from the others. by insulting other people's beliefs, you only show how low you can be. and the only thing you get is hate.
so you can choose how you want to be seen by others.
So what (if I may may ask) do You think about completely failed attempts from Muslim countries to put that respect to law. I mean the blasphemy laws that are based on on this should respect. Currently there is Christian person in Pakistan in danger of getting death penalty for insulting Islam.
That is other side of the coin in my opinion, when all critique is also silenced.
Muhammad, Jesus, Buddha, as far as I'm concerned they are ALL messengers sent from the same god/higher power. He/She/It sent multiple messengers to teach different ways of life so people could choose the one that fit them best. In the end, the message is the same.
If a Muslim tells me the true Muhammed was a perfect compasionnate, selfless man, who never seeked violence... I won't believe him BUT (!) I won't hate her/him personnaly, since the person he/she praises isn't a monster but a good man (real or not).
In a simple way : a Muslim tells me Muhammed was right to enslave women and children after killing their fathers/husbands/brothers, I will feel little simpathy for her/him.
If a Muslim tells me all Muhammed's lootings and war crimes are historically inaccurate, I will not believe it but I will have a higher opinion of her/him.
sadly, now in the west, books that spread hate can easily become best-seller. while books that spread peace remain in the bookstore shelf...
we Muslims, don't ask others to respect our prophet in the same way we respect him. we just feel that disrespecting our prophet is a personal disrespect. it's like when you love your spouse or parents and someone who doesn't even know them comes and insults them just to offend or upsets you. the situation is something similar to this...
I love how your art tries to promote peace and understanding, and it's really touched my heart. On your other account I've seen your pictures with the sayings of your prophet, and I think his words are truly admirable and can be a lesson and wise words for everyone, no matter if they are Muslim or not. I also want to say thank you, because I've learned a lot from the descriptions on your artwork!
Peace be to you, and take care and have a nice day, friend.
Peace be with you as well.
And I really don't understand why all these people are like "OMG! UR PROPHET IS VERY IMPORTANT TO YOU! THEN HE MUST BE MORE IMPORTANT THAN GOD TO YOU! YOU MUST BE WORSHIPPING HIM!!!!111". All other religions give importance to their prophets, so does Islam. It's just pointless to say things like that
and yes even atheist do have beliefs
one of my deviations say so. we love God/Allah and love Mohammed. both are almost got the same level of love. if someone insulted God, I'll get all pissed off and etc, but STILL doesn't throw all that. since God can take my "anger" on that person (like when someone insulted you, you may take your thing from him) BUT if someone insulted Mohammed, I'll explode from anger SINCE Mohammed isn't a god to take my deeds/etc from whoever who insulted him (I know that whatever what Mohammed asked God to do something, God do it but still.)
God and Mohammed both got (almost) the same level of love in our hearts. and will never forgive who say something bad on them.
I hope that make sense. since I know that my English is super-broken!
we respect our prophet so much. we love him. we learn from him a lot. but we don't worship him (did you see me worshipping him? if so, then quote to me what I said that made you feel I worship him)
this stamp is made about my respect for my prophet. since so many non-muslims enjoy making fun of him and trying uselessly to reduce his reputation which they can not.
also, who said I feel indifferent when my God is insulted? you don't know me, so It will be nice if you don't assume things. if you want to know my opinion, you just have to ask. but don't assume. prejudice comes from assuming false things.
I don't like my God insulted. I don't like my prophet insulted. and I don't like my religion insulted. I don't idolize anyone. I worship and praise my God and I love and respect my prophet and guide. it's that simple.
please, try to learn about me before you accuse me baselessly.
Take a page from my book. Grow up.
a different opinion is one thing and insulting my faith is another. having freedom of speech doesn't mean someone goes and disrespects others. I have the right not to like it when someone abuses his freedom of speech in insulting others.
People insult my God all the time. You know what I do? I brush by shoulders off like a mature human being.
I don't really have any reason to follow you as an example. if you are indifferent when your God is insulted. you have to know that not all people are like you.
Take a page from my book. Grow up.
that looks a good advice. I would have been interested to take all the book. but coming from someone who doesn't follow it doesn't seem convincing. I would suggest you follow it first since you are good in judging people you don't know (you judged that I idolize my prophet and didn't provide any proofs).
Peace be to you.
Peace, bro. Jesus loves you.
it doesn't insult me to see you are ineducated and it doesn't insult me to see you don't respect the others. since you do not represent the teachings of your faith. you only represent yourself.
peace be to you and may God guide you.
Say all you want about me, just don't go dissing my prophet you probably don't know a single thing about!
Very nice stamp, thanks for making.

I'm a Jew, but I read a passage that Muhammad (pbuh), in his travels, found Jews fasting and asked them what it is all about. They told him that God saved them from slavery on that day with Moses as their leader. Muhammad told them, "We are closer to Musa than you are." Is that accurate.
According to Sahih Bukhari, Volume 6, Book 60, Number 202 - Narrated Ibn Abbas:
"When the Prophet arrived at Medina, the Jews were observing the fast on 'Ashura' (10th of Muharram) and they said, "This is the day when Moses became victorious over Pharaoh," On that, the Prophet said to his companions, "You (Muslims) have more right to celebrate Moses' victory than they have, so observe the fast on this day."
the prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) means that he and Moses (peace be upon him) are both muslims, so muslims have right to celebrate Moses too.
yes, this is accurate. why?
Praise all the Prophets!!
Usually nowadays Muslims tells stories about how a sheikh flew from Pakistan to India or how infallible they are. Or that you HAVE to follow them blindly etc. We're living in a time where some so-called Sheikhs are corrupted and false, I've been through that.
Al-Bukhari, Sahih Muslim, Abu Dawud, At-Tirmidhi etc. are the real sources which brings us straight to the Holy Quran and the Hadith of the holy Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him).
