The Founder of the Modern world

Updated on April 3, 2013

The Founder of the modern world


Muhammad (PBUH), the supreme ego, is not a personality of history but a genius of all times and the founder of the modern world. The most striking feature is that Muhammad (PBUH) was a vital force in history and at the same time he is the dynamic spirit of the world to come.
The progressive political society he built was without parliament, cabinet and ballet boxes and in this regard he was the statesman of his age but there was being observed "government of the people ,by the people, for the people," and in this sense the Prophet (PBUH) is in our future to lead us. It was his sublime nature that he gave birth to a damocratic society without the ''instruments'' of democracy. Actually the Institutions and systems are the questions of ''space'' and ''time''. he used the institutions and systems of his time and space but the conscious of the modern time. Defiance of ''Taghoot / gods'' was the doctrine over which he founded his state and cemented it with freedom, equality and fraternity.Democracy is not an idea but a ''reality'' in the realm of Muhammad (PBUH).
In the economic field, the Prophet (PBUH)made the use of old fashion of economic order but at the same time he was founding the modern welfare state.It was,perhaps , the first time in history that to abolish poverty and to raise the financial standard of the common people, steps were leagalized in the form of ''zakat''. Houses were built on equal areas and in equal shape to systematize the pribciple of economic equality. The ban on concentration of wealth geoperdized the existence of the old arastrocracy. It was "economic democracy" which was being shaped by the leader of mankind.
In respect of revelation ,Muhammad (PBUH) belongs to the ancient world but in so far as inductive reason is concern he is the spirit of modern world. The emphasize of the Holy Quran over " observation" and "outer experience" led the Muslims to a new method of enquiry for the conquest of the unknown world . It was the opening of the domination of man over the universe.
It is interesting that conservatives are focusing their attention upon the Prophet's "conservative personality" due to which he became the "giant" of the old times but moderates and liberals are concentrating on his ''modern personality'' because of which he is the legend of the modern times.
The modern world is founded over democracy, welfare state and inductive reason, that is why, the most influential person in the history of mankind , the legend for all times, Muhammad (PBUH) the great, is the real founder of the modern world.

      I'm not really sure what you are saying here. Are you saying Muhammad gave birth to democracy or are you saying he gave birth to something that you call a democracy, but is not really a democracy.
