The Physical Description of the Prophet Muhammad

Hassan ibn Thabit was a great and a known Arab poet. He was hired by the Quraish leadership of Makkah to prepare a masterpiece to spread propaganda against the Last Messenger of God, Muhammad (peace be upon him).

Hassan thought that he should go and see this men in order to write his poem. When he saw the face of Prophet Muhammad, he accepted Islam, went back returned the money & wrote a poem (below) about the physical characteristics of Prophet Muhammad. After that he became the official poet of the Prophet and became the defender of the Prophet and of Islam against the propaganda by the people of Quraish.

Is there any man greater than he?

“It is impossible for anyone who studies the life and character of the great Prophet of Arabia, who knows how he taught and how he lived, to feel anything but reverence for that mighty Prophet, one of the great messengers of the Supreme. And although in what I put to you I shall say many things which may be familiar to many, yet I myself feel whenever I re-read them, a new way of admiration, a new sense of reverence for that mighty Arabian teacher.”

Source: Annie Besant, The Life and Teachings of Muhammad, Madras 1932, p.4]

“If greatness of purpose, smallness of means, and astounding results are the three criteria of human genius, who could dare to compare any great man in modern history with Muhammad? The most famous men created arms, laws and empires only. They founded, if anything at all, no more than material powers which often crumbled away before their eyes. This man moved not only armies, legislations, empires, peoples and dynasties, but millions of men in one-third of the then inhabited world; and more than that, he moved the altars, the gods, the religions, the ideas, the beliefs and souls… his forbearance in victory, his ambition, which was entirely devoted to one idea and in no manner striving for an empire; his endless prayers, his mystic conversations with God, his death and his triumph after death; all these attest not to an imposture but to a firm conviction which gave him the power to restore a dogma. This dogma was twofold, the unity of God and the immateriality of God; the former telling what God is, the latter telling what God is not; the one overthrowing false gods with the sword, the other starting an idea with words.

Philosopher, orator, apostle, legislator, warrior, conqueror of ideas, restorer of rational dogmas, of a cult without images; the founder of twenty terrestrial empires and of one spiritual empire, that is Muhammad. As regards all standards by which human greatness may be measured, we may well ask, is there any man greater than he?”

Muslims have adopted wrong method to Fight the Evil Facebook Page that urge people to have Draw Muhammad Day on May 20th

Muslims throughout the world have deep respect, love and extreme honor for the last prophet of God, Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him. Islam prohibits drawing pictures of any living being especially of the Prophets of God.

The obnoxious Danish Cartoon drawings of Prophet Muhammad, depicting him as a suicide bomber and other stereotypes and phobias, sparked protests across the world. All of this was done in the name of freedom of press. Some artists have been murdered for the very same reason. All this ended a couple of years ago…

The wounds of the Danish Cartoons were not healed when South Park in its self censored episode showed Muhammad as a Bear. Although it made Muslims disheartened but absolutely no response from the American Muslim community was observed except the radical group called Revolution Muslim, which the Muslim Community has condemned and kicked out of the Mosques, e-mailed a threat of death to the South Park writers. This group comprises of not more than 5 to 10 youth with the unstable and shady background of the founder and the main members. The American Muslims leaders have concluded that these lunatics are more probably agent provocateurs, because the arguments presented by the Revolution Muslim members are against the consensus of the Scholars of Islam, and many of their statements cannot come from a Muslim.
