Many people today are discussing Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him. Who was he exactly? What did he teach? Why was he loved so much by some and hated so much by others? Did he live up to his claims? Was he a holy man? Was he a prophet of God? What is the truth about this man?
 
You be the judge.
 
Here are the facts as narrated by thousands of people, many of whom knew him personally. 
He was born to a noble tribe to the lineage of the leaders of Makkah.
 
•	His name comes from the Arabic root "hamd" and literally means "praised one." People at his time and until this very moment, praise him many times per day, peace be upon him. 

•	He never fell into the common practice of his tribesmen to worship statues, idols or man-made "gods."

•	He believed that God was truly One God, and as such, He was to be worshipped alone, without any other "gods" beside Him.

•	He held the Name of God in the highest of reverence and never took God's Name in vain or for any vainglorious purpose. 

•	He despised false worship and all of the complexities and degradation to which it leads.

•	He insisted on keeping the Commandments of Almighty God, just as prophets of old had done in the past.

•	He never committed adultery, and he forbid others from doing it.

•	He forbade usury and interest on money lending, as Jesus, peace be upon him, had done centuries before him.

•	He never gambled and did not allow it.

•	He never drank alcohol or strong drink, even though it was a very normal thing for people of his time and place.

•	He did not engage in gossip and used to turn away from hearing anything related to it.

•	He offered prayers in the manner and direction (toward Jerusalem, until Allah ordered the change toward Makkah) as was prescribed of prophets in the Bible, standing, bowing, kneeling and prostrating as they had done before him.

•	He taught that Jesus, peace be upon him, was the immaculate conception and miracle birth of Mary, and that she was the best creation of Almighty God.

•	He insisted even to the Jews of Madinah, that Jesus, peace be upon him, was the Messiah, the Christ, the one predicted to come in their Torah (Old Testament).

•	He said Jesus, peace be upon him, did many miracles by the permission of Almighty God, curing the lepers, restoring sight to the blind and even bringing a dead man back to life.

Text Box: Today after a lapse of fourteen centuries, the life and teachings of Muhammad, peace be upon him, have survived without the slightest loss, alteration or interpolation. They offer the same undying hope for treating mankind's many ills, which they did when he was alive.
