What the top orators of the world say about The Universal Messenger Muhammad peace be upon him.
Almighty God said in The Noble Quran: “You have indeed in the Messenger of Allah a beautiful pattern (of conduct) for anyone whose hope is in Allah and the Final Day, and who engages much in the praise of Allah.” (33:21) ‘And surely, you (O Muhammad) are on an exalted standard of character.’ Qur’an 68:4
Not less than a second goes by but there are Billions of Muslims all over the world everyday they are sending there blessing, salaam on the Prophet Muhammad pbuh and the testification of faith not less that 5 times a day (Saleh): I bear witness there is no deity worthy of worship except Allah and Muhammad is his Servant and Messenger. Ash-hadu Laa ilaha illAllah wa ahs-hadu Muhammadan abduhu wa Rusooluhu.
We Muslims we praise our Prophet, the Christians praise Jesus and the Hindu praises Rama Krishna, the Buddhist praises Buddha, this is Natural. But if the testimony comes from the apposite camp that would be a testimony indeed in that regard. But if the enemy praises your Hero then that is really a praise indeed. Millions of none muslims who don’t even accept the universal religion of Islam they still praise the universal messenger Muhammad pbuh.
This universal messenger is mentioned in their own scriptures. The amazing thing is that the highly intellectual none Muslims, from the fields of Scholars, Scientists, Priests, Orators, they say that Muhammad peace be upon him was the only man in the history of the world who was supremely successful in both secular and religious levels. He is the only one in the history of mankind, from Adam to present. Even the Christians who say Jesus is their savior and Lord, they put Jesus second or third place. This is quite a shocking thing for none Muslims, but not for Muslims, because Allah (God) has a promise and He does as He wills: ‘O Muhammad And raised high the esteem in which thou art held’ Qur’an 94:4.
If the none muslims are unbiased and truthful they have no choice but to praise the exalted character of Muhammad pbuh. Indeed Muhammad peace be upon him he is the only person, I repeat the only person in world history who was successful in all aspects of life. He is the only man in the world who religious wise or secular wise reproved the world of sin.
He was the religious teacher, he was a social reformer, he was the moral guider, political thinker, military genius, administrative colossus, faithful friend and the wonderful companion, devoted husband, loving father. And in respect of all this he was an obedient servant and messenger of All-Mighty God. This is a shame for those people who established and spread misconceptions about Muhammad the universal messenger and the religion of peace Islam. Some people use wrong terminology and are trained to hate Muhammad pbuh and his religion, like a dog is trained to hate someone.
God Almighty said “Those who resist Allah and His Messenger will be humbled to dust, as were those before them: for We have already sent down clear Signs. And the Unbelievers (will have) a humiliating Penalty.” Qur’an 58:5 “Know they not that for those who oppose Allah and His Messenger is the Fire of Hell?― wherein they shall dwell. That is the supreme disgrace.” Qur’an 9:63
The last sermon of Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him:
After praising, and thanking God, the Prophet, may God send His praises upon him said:
“O People, lend me an attentive ear, for I know not whether after this year, I shall ever be amongst you again. Therefore, listen to what I am saying to you very carefully and take these words to those who could not be present here today.
O People, just as you regard this month, this day, this city as Sacred, so regard the life and property of every Muslim as a sacred trust. Return the goods entrusted to you to their rightful owners. Hurt no one so that no one may hurt you. Remember that you will indeed meet your Lord, and that He will indeed reckon your deeds. God has forbidden you to take usury (interest), therefore all interest obligation shall henceforth be waived. Your capital, however, is yours to keep. You will neither inflict nor suffer any inequity. God has Judged that there shall be no interest, and that all the interest due to Abbas ibn Abd’al Muttalib shall henceforth be waived…
Beware of Satan, for the safety of your religion. He has lost all hope that he will ever be able to lead you astray in big things, so beware of following him in small things.
“O People, it is true that you have certain rights with regard to your women, but they also have rights over you. Remember that you have taken them as your wives only under Allah’s trust and with His permission. If they abide by your right then to them belongs the right to be fed and clothed in kindness. Do treat your women well and be kind to them for they are your partners and committed helpers. And it is your right that they do not make friends with any one of whom you do not approve, as well as never to be unchaste.
O People, listen to me in earnest, worship Allah, say your five daily prayers (Salah), fast during the month of Ramadan, and give your wealth in Zakat (obligatory charity). Perform Hajj (Pilgrimage to the valley of Baca) if you can afford to. All mankind is from Adam and Eve, an Arab has no superiority over a non-Arab nor a non-Arab has any superiority over an Arab; also a white has no superiority over black nor a black has any superiority over white except by piety and good action. Learn that every Muslim is a brother to every Muslim and that the Muslims constitute one brotherhood. Nothing shall be legitimate to a Muslim which belongs to a fellow Muslim unless it was given freely and willingly. Do not, therefore, do injustice to yourselves. Remember, one day you will appear before Allah and answer your deeds. So beware, do not stray from the path of righteousness after I am gone.
O People, no prophet or apostle will come after me and no new faith will be born. Reason well, therefore,
O People, and understand words which I convey to you. I leave behind me two things, the QURAN and my example, the SUNNAH and if you follow these you will never go astray. All those who listen to me shall pass on my words to others and those to others again; and may the last ones understand my words better than those who listen to me directly. Be my witness, O Allah, that I have conveyed your message to your people”.
“…This day have I perfected your religion for you, completed My Grace upon you, and have chosen Islam for you as your religion…” Quran 5:3
These prominent intellectual westerners have written books surely not for muslims but for a none muslim audience:
Greatest leader in the world, Muhammad (pbuh). “Among leaders who have made the greatest impact through ages, I would consider Muhammad before Jesus Christ.” (James Gavin, Speeches of a U.S. Army General.)
Greatest influential person in the world, Muhammad (pbuh). “My choice of Muhammad to lead the list of the world’s most influential persons may surprise some readers and may be questioned by others, but he was the only man in history who was supremely successful on both the secular and religious level. …It is probable that the relative influence of Muhammad on Islam has been larger than the combined influence of Jesus Christ and St. Paul on Christianity. …It is this unparalleled combination of secular and religious influence which I feel entitles Muhammad to be considered the most influential single figure in human history. “(Michael Hart in ‘ The 100, A Ranking of the Most Influential Persons In History,’ New York, 1978.)
All in one qualities in the world, Muhammad (pbuh). “Philosopher, Orator, Apostle, Legislator, Warrior, Conqueror of ideas, the Restorer of rational belief, the preacher of a religion without images, the founder of twenty terrestrial empires and of one heavenly Empire, that is Muhammad. As regards all standards [I repeat “ALL”] by which human greatness may be measured, we may well ask, “Is there any man greater than he?” (Alphonse Lamartine, Historie De la Turquie, Paris, 1854.)
Solve all of the worlds problems today, Muhammad (pbuh). “I believe that if today an autocrat of Mohammad’s caliber assumes world leadership, he could solve all problems of humanity splendidly. The world will become an abode of peace and happiness. I predict that tomorrow’s Europe will embrace Islam.” (George Bernard Shaw)
Greatest leader of all time, Muhammad (pbuh) “Perhaps the greatest leader of all time was Muhammad pbuh, who combined all three functions, (and) to a lesser degree, Moses pbuh did the same.” –(Professor Jules Masserman (Jewish) – from Chicago University)
Greatest personality in the world, Muhammad (pbuh) “The towering personality of Muhammad has left bright and indelible imprints on all mankind.” (John William Draper, A History of theIntellectual Development of Europe, London 1875.)
The words of Muhammad (pbuh) are treasures for the world. “The sayings of Muhammad are a treasure of wisdom not only for Muslims but for all mankind.” (M.K.Gandhi, Preface to The Sayings of Muhammad by Sohrawardi.)
Most Unique person in the world, Muhammad (pbuh). “Absolutely unique in history, Muhammad is a 3 fold founder of a nation, of an empire and of a religion.” (Reverend Bosworth Smith, Mohammad and Mohammadanism.)
The Only Unlearned Prophet Muhammad pbuh in the History of Mankind. “No other religion in history spread so rapidly as Islam. The West has widely believed that this surge of religion was made possible by the sword. But no modern scholar accepts this idea, and the Qur’an is explicit in the support of the freedom of conscience.” “Like almost every major prophet before him, Muhammad fought shy of serving as the transmitter of God’s word sensing his own inadequacy. But the Angel commanded ‘Read’. So far as we know, Muhammad was unable to read or write, but he began to dictate those inspired words which would soon revolutionize a large segment of the earth: “There is one God”. “In all things Muhammad was profoundly practical. When his beloved son Ibrahim died, an eclipse occurred and rumors of God ‘s personal condolence quickly arose. Whereupon Muhammad is said to have announced, ‘An eclipse is a phenomenon of nature. It is foolish to attribute such things to the death or birth of a human being’.” “At Muhammad’s own death an attempt was made to deify him, but the man who was to become his administrative successor killed the hysteria with one of the noblest speeches in religious history: ‘If there are any among you who worshiped Muhammad, he is dead. But if it is God you Worshiped, He lives for ever’.” (James Michener in ‘Islam: The Misunderstood Religion,’ Reader’s Digest, May 1955, pp. 68-70.)
Saviour of Humanity, Muhammad (pbuh). “I have studied him- The wonderful man-and in my opinion–He must be called the Savior of humanity.” (George Bernard Shaw, The Genuine Islam.)
Teachings of Islam can never fail. “The teachings of Islam can fail under no circumstances. With all our systems of culture and civilization, we can not go beyond Islam and, as a matter of fact, no human mind can go beyond the Qur’an.” (Letter of Goethe to Eckermann, Sir Henry Elliott’s collection, 1865).
Religion of Mercy is Islam. “The critics are blind. They cannot see that the only sword Mohammad ever wielded was the sword of mercy, compassion and forgiveness. ” (Pundit Jai Anand, My Religion, Hinduism.)
Spread by Mercy. Only Islam. “Those who believe Islam was spread by force are fools who neither know the ways of Islam nor the ways of the world.” (Balbir Singh, Navan Hindustan, 1947.)
No Dark ages in Islam. The waged Crusades knows. “The Christian World came to wage crusades against Muslims but eventually knelt before them to gain knowledge. They were spellbound to see that Muslims were owners of a culture that was far superior to their own. The Dark Ages of Europe were illuminated by nothing but the beacon of Muslim civilization.” (F. J. C Hearushaw, The Science of History.)
The Quran, The Miracle of the miracles. “If proof was needed that the Qur’an is inimitable, try as you might the challenge still stands. The Holy Qur’an is the word of God. Revealed to Muhammad peace be upon him is the miracle of miracles.” (Rev. Bosworth Smith)
Natural religion of Mankind, Islam. “In my view, Islam is the only religion in the world that will remain eternally practicable in changing times.” (George Bernard Shaw, The Genuine Islam, 1936.)
No compulsion in the religion of Islam. “My problem to write this monograph is easier, because we are not generally fed now on that (distorted) kind of history and much time need not be spent on pointing out our misrepresentations of Islam. The theory of Islam and sword, for instance, is not heard now in any quarter worth the name. The principle of Islam that “there is no compulsion in religion” is well known.”(K. S. Ramakrishna Rao in ‘Mohammed: The Prophet of Islam,’ 1989)
Shameful lies of the Historians. “The legend of fanatical Muslims sweeping through the world and forcing Islam at the point of the sword–is the most fantastically absurd myth that historians have ever repeated.” (De Lacy O’ Leary, Islam at the Cross Roads, London, 1923.)
Unbiased Christians. “The lies which we [Christians] have heaped round this man, are disgraceful to ourselves only.” “The sword indeed, but where will you get your sword? Every new opinion, at its starting is precisely in a minority of one. In one man’s head alone. There it dwells as yet. One man alone of the whole world believes it, there is one man against all men. That he takes a sword and try to propagate with that, will do little for him. You must get your sword! On the whole, a thing will propagate itself as it can.” (Thomas Carlyle, On Heroes and Hero Worship.)
Dr. Joseph Adam Pearson rightly says, “People who worry that nuclear weaponry will one day fall in the hands of the Arabs, fail to realize that the Islamic bomb has been dropped already, it fell the day MUHAMMED (pbuh) was born”.
Fastest growing religion in the world is Islam.
Increase in the world religions from 1934 to 1984. An article in Reader’s Digest ‘Almanac’, year book 1986, gave the statistics of the increase of percentage of the major religions of the world in half a century from 1934 to 1984. This article also appeared in ‘The Plain Truth’ magazine. At the top was Islam, which increased by 235%, and Christianity had increased only by 47%. May one ask, which war took place in this century which converted millions of people to Islam? Islam is the fastest growing religion in America and Europe. Today the fastest growing religion in America is Islam. The fastest growing religion in Europe in Islam. Which sword is forcing people in the West to accept Islam in such large numbers?
Destination of Islam.
Almighty God promised “And say O Muhammad: “Truth has now arrived, and Falsehood perished: for Falsehood is by its nature bound to perish.” Quran 17:81 “He it is Who hath sent His messenger with the guidance and the religion of truth, that He may cause it to supercede over all religion.” “even though the Pagans may detest it.” “And Allah sufficeth as a Witness.” Quran 48:28.
Messenger of Allah (saw) said: “There will not be one house on the face of the earth, except Allah will bring the word of Islam upon them, (either) with the honour of an honoured one, or the disgrace of a disgraced one; Where Allah will honour them and make them of its people, or He will disgrace them and they will not submit to it.” Reference: Masnad Ahmed (Hadith # 23865),
