#WhoisMuhammad ?

In the wake of recent events of what is going on around the globe, one who knows nothing about Islam and who follows ONLY what the media dictates, can not escape the preconceptions of Islam being a religion of terror and violence.

Many ignorant Islamaphobes harassing Muslims, spreading false information about Islam, and even going to extents of killing innocent Muslims all because of their own arrogance to refuse to seek the truth. Since the incident that occurred in Paris, many non-Muslims have been trying to learn more about Islam and who was Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him). There are many individuals who will very well enjoy educating themselves solely through FOX news (lol) and any other biased one-sided news channel and through these news channels are how Islamphobes are born. Those lazy individuals who do not know anything else except what their news anchor teaches them, are the ones who are only harming themselves. However, there are a good portion of individuals who are actually keen on seeking the REAL truth about Islam and who was the REAL Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him). They know that there is more to these false lies and accusations that the media has formulated. Isn't ironic how media makes up all these lies and rumours based on their OWN understanding and their OWN perception of something instead of actually going to the ACTUAL source to clarify and to seek the truth? The media will just tell you what you want to hear but they themselves know NOT A THING about anything they are talking about! If you ask a reporter or a journalist what does tawheed mean or what the five pillars of Islam and 6 pillars of faith, they will have NO CLUE! They would not even know what it takes to become a Muslim (unless they are intelligent enough to open up their mouth to ASK an actual practising Muslim!) What a shame!

Though I could surely write a long paragraph about what Islam is and Who is Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him), I thought it would be more engaging for me to share some short beneficial clips to help clear up your misconceptions because these people obviously can do it better than I can!

after watching these short clips, here are more verses from the Qur'an and from aHadith (prophetic teachings and sayings) about our beloved Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) and what he used to preach . Please do not be biased just because you think what you hear and see on the news is correct. Open your heart and your mind and you will find the truth! :

 “O Messenger of Allah! It is a great Mercy of God that you are gentle and kind towards them; for, had you been harsh and hard-hearted, they would all have broken away from you”(Quran 3:159).

"The Prophet (pbuh) resembled a prophet who was harmed by his people. He wiped the blood from his face and said: ‘O God! Forgive my people, for they know not!" (Bukhari #3290)

"God has sent me to perfect good manners and to do good deeds."(Bukhari & Ahmed)

"The Prophet (pbuh) did not swear at anyone, nor was he rude, nor did he curse anyone. If he desired to reprimand someone, he would say: ‘What is wrong with him, may dust be cast in his face!" (Bukhari #5684)

The Prophet ﷺ said: “Allah is kind and likes kindness in all things” (Bukhari, 6601)

“He who wishes to have his provision enlarged and his term of life prolonged should treat his relatives well” (Bukhari, 5985)

Bahz b. Hakim, on his father’s authority, said that his grandfather told him that he had asked Allah’s Messengerto whom he should show kindness and that the Prophethad replied: “Your mother.” He asked who came next and he replied: “Your mother.” He asked who came next and he replied for the third time: “Your mother.” He again asked who came next and hereplied: “Your father, then your relatives in order of relationship” (Abu Dawud, 5120)

“The best house among the Muslims is one which contains an orphan who is well treated, and the worst house among the Muslims is one which contains an orphan who is badly treated” (Ibn Majah, 3679)

Another person said to the Prophet“0 Messenger of Allah! My relatives are such that although I cooperate with them, they cut me off; I am kind to them but they ill treat me.” The Prophet ﷺ said this in reply: “So long as you continue as you are, God will always help you and He will protect you against their mischief” (Muslim, 4640)

"Let us go to resolve the situation and make peace between them."(Bukhari #2547)

Ibn Abbas said:
‘The Prophet (pbuh) was the most generous of people. He was most generous during Ramadhan when he met Gabriel (pbuh); he would meet him every night during Ramadhan to practice and review the Qur’an with him. The Messenger of God (pbuh) was so generous, that he was faster than the swiftest wind in this regard. (Bukhari #6)
