Faces in Islam............
In our first journey across time and space in 'Faces in Islam',let us acquaint ourselves with the principal actor, Muhammad ibnu Abdullah, messenger of God. Born some 1450 years ago in Makkah, orphaned at birth, illiterate but full of wisdom even during his youthful days,preordained in Loth Mahfuz in a distant 'land beyond land' at a 'time' before time' to lead the whole of mankind from kufr to TRUTH.
Let us listen to this presentation by leading orientalists and erudite scholars of Islam in the world on the subject of Muhammad Ibnu Abdullah, messenger of God. I find their perspective very fair and balanced.

In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful
Read: In the name of thy Lord Who createth, (1) Createth man from a clot. (2) Read: And thy Lord is the Most Bounteous, (3) Who teacheth by the pen, (4) Teacheth man that which he knew not. (5) Nay, but verily man is rebellious (6) That he thinketh himself independent! (7) Lo! unto thy Lord is the return. (8) Hast thou seen him who dissuadeth (9) A slave when he prayeth? (10) Hast thou seen if he relieth on the guidance (of Allah) (11) Or enjoineth piety? (12) Hast thou seen if he denieth (Allah's guidance) and is froward? (13) Is he then unaware that Allah seeth? (14) Nay, but if he cease not We will seize him by the forelock - (15) The lying, sinful forelock - (16) Then let him call upon his henchmen! (17) We will call the guards of hell. (18) Nay, Obey not thou him. But prostrate thyself, and draw near (unto Allah). (19)

In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful (1)
Praise be to Allah, Lord of the Worlds, (2) The Beneficent, the Merciful. (3) Owner of the Day of Judgment, (4) Thee (alone) we worship; Thee (alone) we ask for help. (5) Show us the straight path, (6) The path of those whom Thou hast favoured. Not (the path) of those who earn Thine anger nor of those who go astray. (7)

Prophet Muhammad's last sermon [ Khutbah ]
...and by the way, 1.5 billion people on this small planet earth are some kind of raving lunatics to have followed Muhammad Ibnu Abdullah, messenger of God according to this lady!!
Mashaallah, there is no limit to being Deaf, Dumb and Blind ! Hearing this apparenyly much 'educated' lady's ranting ,full of barbs and poison and anger, I felt blessed waking up every morning with my soul and faith intact to yet go through another day insyaallah with my faith in HIM unblemished and insyaallah when the time come for Izrail to pull my soul out of my 'halkum' I would still have the strenght to say: La ila hailllah, Muhammada rasullallah.
There is no god but God. Muhammad is HIS messenger.
