What they Said About Him...

Thomas Carlyle, the Scottish historian said:
"They call him a prophet, you say? Why, he stood there face to face with them, here, not enshrined in any mystery, visibly clouting his own cloak, cobbling his own shoes, fighting, counseling, ordering in the midst of them. They must have seen what kind of a man he was, let him be called what ye like. No emperor with his tiaras was obeyed as this man in a cloak of his own clouting. During three and twenty years of rough, actual trial, I find something of a veritable hero necessary for that of itself. "

Reverend Professor William Montgomery Watt said:
“His readiness to undergo persecution for his beliefs, the high moral character of the men who believed in him and looked up to him as a leader, and the greatness of his ultimate achievement - all argue his fundamental integrity. To suppose Muhammad as an impostor raises more problems than it solves. Moreover, none of the great figures of history is so poorly appreciated in the West as Muhammad ... Thus, not merely must we credit Muhammad with essential honesty and integrity of purpose, if we are to understand him at all; if we are to correct the errors we have inherited from the past, we must not forget the conclusive proof is a much stricter requirement than a show of plausibility, and in a matter such as this only to be attained with difficulty.”

Reverend Bosworth Smith said:
"If ever a man ruled by a divine right, it was Muhammad, for he had all the powers without their supports. He cared not for the dressings of power. The simplicity of his private life was in keeping with his public life."

Washington Irving said:
"His military triumphs awakened no pride nor vain glory as they would have done had they been effected by selfish purposes. In the time of his greatest power he maintained the same simplicity of manner and appearance as in the days of adversity. So far from affecting regal state, he was displeased if, on entering a room, any unusual testimonial of respect was shown to him."

Wolfgang Goethe, the German Poet said:
"I looked into history for a human paradigm and found it to be in Muhammad".


George Bernard Shaw said:
“I have always held the religion of Muhammad in high estimation because of its wonderful vitality. It is the only religion which appears to possess that assimilating capability to the changing phases of existence which make itself appeal to every age - I have prophesized about the faith of Muhammad that it would be acceptable tomorrow as it is beginning to be acceptable to the Europe of today. Medieval ecclesiastics, either through ignorance or bigotry, painted Muhammadanism in the darkest colours. They were, in fact, trained to hate both the man Muhammad and his religion. To them, Muhammad was an anti-Christ. I have studied him, the wonderful man, and in my opinion, far from being an anti-Christ, he must be called the Saviour of humanity.”

Professor Keith Moore said:
“It is clear to me that these statements must have come to Muhammad from God, or Allah, because most of this knowledge was not discovered until many centuries later. This proves to me that Muhammad must have been a messenger of God, or Allah.”

Annie Besant said:
“It is impossible for anyone who studies the life and character of the great Prophet of Arabia, who knew how he taught and how he lived, to feel anything but reverence for the 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 reread them, a new way of admiration, a new sense of reverence for that mighty Arabian teacher.”

Dr. Gustav Weil said:
“Muhammad was a shining example to his people. His character was pure and stainless. His house, his dress, his food - they were characterized by a rare simplicity. So unpretentious was he that he would receive from his companions no special mark of reverence, nor would he accept any service from his slave which he could do for himself. He was accessible to all at all times. He visited the sick and was full of sympathy for all. Unlimited was his benevolence and generosity as also was his anxious care for the welfare of the community.”

Edmund Burke said:
“The Muhammadan law, which is binding on all from the crowned head to the meanest subject, is a law interwoven with a system of the wisest, the most learned and the most enlightened jurisprudence that ever existed in the world.”

  1. Nikola Tesla did not solve energy crisis- Nor Albert Einstein- SOLOMON AZAR HAS-period!
    I took the ideas of many scientists the world has grown and finalized an ideology and experiment to end the global energy crisis with no greenhouse gases-That was the easy part-now i find myself trying to gain FAITH of my fellowman to spread this story-WHY-

    for i did everything alone-a garage scientists who is successful- and now i need to be proven correct- so i come upon the fantastic invention called the net- invented after thousands of years- if not millions of the monkey race of man only to be ridiculed and bullied- like the jackasses that harassed several teenagers to suicide-

    what i have found is disgusting and the reason why innocence is raped killed and beaten- why man goes to war over and over again- YOU DESERVE IT-

    Truly- as a scientists and observer- i have found the reason for mans madness at times- it is meant to be- to antagonize and harrass each other- hardly any time to just relax in life- always on guard- WHY-

    go live one day in nature and see how hard it is- technology is great and makes life far more stable- some grandparents alive right now that remember when the automobile first came out- the refrigerator- the television- medicine for this ailment and so forth-

    and to this day half the children of the earth still die from simple drinking water untreated-

    GET YOUR HEAD OUT YOUR ASS NOW BEFORE GLOBAL WAR BEGINS-

    wars have always come and gone- a natural part of life to keep a civilzation the strongest- or die by your neighbors hands that keeps the torch brighter than another to find answers-

    and now in a century man declars war to end all wars forever since ww1-ONE CENTURY NOW-

    when will it end-

    I am your messenger- over one year i state these words- you will never give me an ear to listen or an eye to witness until i give you a miracle- for part of your animal ways is giving someone attention ONLY after they do something for you-

    CATCH 22

    you care not to help me or investigate my science deeds because i say messenger of god- thus- only true solution will never be uncovered as YOU are an ignorant and selfish creature that says you love god by majority in the world- yet- does nothing when a disciple asks for help-or anyone for truth- and this is part of my message- i have much to say- and you will surely understand if total economy crumbles and you lose your jobs-and go off to war- for many look for answers why afterwards-

    but for first time in human history- a chance comes for peace without global war- your window closes very fast as the military pawns have been set and iran russia pakistan and many others are ready-

    ONLY a messenger can create peace between the nations without global war- but it seems man is still a savage monkey race-not children of god- thus- let the lessons continue

  2. Thank you for taking the time to comment...
    I fail to see the relevance of your comment to the topic posted and your style of writing is directly attacking and insensitive.
    Please do NOT use any explicits if you feel the need to comment again.
    Respect given is respect received...
    You argue no one accepts what you are saying as truth and you may have your past reasons, however you have not made ONE statement that has any subtance or backbone in your lengthy parody.
    Exactly what you are trying to say and prove is so vague, it would be best if you first invested in an english writing course so that your clarity and diction can be understood!
    After all what is the purpose to writing if no one can undertsand exactly what your message is?
    We write to communicate and it is utterly clear you have not communicated anything but a lack of understanding, an unprovoked "hate" and a most disrespectful manner of expressing yourself.
    Please feel free to read the post again if you so desire.
    This post was dedicated to a noble person who deserved his praise in every aspect.
    If it is my opinion so be it.
    It would be however important to note that I am not alone in this conviction for alot of distinguished and recognised people in our century bear testimony to the same.
    If you believe yourself to be a "prophet" then that is your belief.
    I should however make it perfectly clear, I do not believe you are a Messenger of God.
    There are other means of delivering a message than claiming this authority.
    I urge you once more to deter from using distasteful language and to keep within the realms of the post.
    Sincerely,
    Mariamlelue
