Was mohammed the most violent of all the supposed prophets?
i have read where he killed many people , married a nine year old and fought by the sword, i've never read this about any other prophets.
I am not sure that he was th most violent but his writings and his philosophy are filled with violent suggestions.
well, yes he was always talking about Jihad teaching his followers that when they kill, they are doing the right thing. He believed in war.
Everyone please - DO NOT BELIEVE the headlines that you read. Prophet Mohammed was not a violent person nor were any other prophets before him. There are many web sites on the net that will lead you to read and believe the wrong thing about Prophet Mohammed and Islam. PLEASE do your own research on reputable sites or books. Yes the prophet did marry a 9 year old but did not bring her to his house till much later as the custom was in Arabia at the time. Read his biography, if you really want to know if the Prophet was violent or not let me know and I'll give you free books on Prophet Mohammed and Islam by reputable Western scholars. You can then learn the real truth. All the best.
I think that you need to look at the History of the area at the time and then discern his and his followers reasons, he is no more responsible for his actions as anybody concerned with their people and livelyhood are. The prophet only became such after the events, many many many people died as a result of the writings of Biblical prophets who instructed the young Israel when and how to attack their enemies. It is people today who are creating the violence of today, not those in History.
Feel free to vote my answer down along with the other educated responses, the shame is yours.
Islam is no more a religion of hate and war than is Judaism or Christianity. Condemning a man who's time and circumstances you can not understand is . . . .retarded at best, hate filled media driven idiocy at worst. I don't much like Islam, but at least I can look at it objectively, and tell you that I don't like it without cowardly and ignorantly voting the rational answers down from the shadows and safety of being out of range.
Good day to you all.
Perhaps not at the time, but I believe modern day he has brought about the most. Can't forget about the crusades and such, though.
I never had an interest in Islam, however, with the growing Islamic unrest I have considered learning about what doctrines and belief systems motivate those who practice extremism. I know not all followers of Islam are violent. I believe most are not.
There is a video on Youtube of an 11 year old cutting the head off a full grown man while a bunch of women sit on him and hold him down. Some older guy is holding his beard tight so he can't wiggle around too much while the kid slices open his throat with a knife, and continues until the head is completely severed.
We used to call an abortion, an abortion. Now we like to call it "pro-choice." Regardless, the "choice" still equals a dead baby.
Most religions that kill people to please their God, call it human sacrifice. I don't believe Islam preaches human sacrifice, but in the end, what is the difference?
Someone was still butchered in the name of divine authority.
Perhaps its the added implication of punishment, I don't know.
I don't think so. We had different religion with different teachings. If they believe and we believe that we are following orders from God then there's nothing wrong with that. For Muslim, they are still battling in flesh while we Christians battles are spiritual. Muslims battles thru wars depending their faith and we battles for ourselves, to not to do things we believed are bad. It just happen that our religious beliefs differ in many ways. But if we study the holy bible, in Old Testament, Believers of God battles and defends their faith by means of war too.
Judging is only for the Lord to do and not for us. For we are all slaves in His eyes.
First of all, I must say to EVERY ONE OUT THERE, you have to respect whatever religion we are talking about. Writers are not supposed to hurt people, are we?
Ans: Mohammad (P.B.U.H) forgave that old woman, who always used to threw trash on him (on daily basis), once she didn't do it, Mohammad (P.B.U.H) asked about her and found she was ill, he went to her house, served her, and blessed her.
Mohammad (P.B.U.H) forgave the assassin that killed his uncle.
Mohammad (P.B.U.H) forgave all the militants and people of Mecca after conquering it.
I think history has been filled with ENOUGH evidences if one wants to believe.
And PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE, ... do NOT believe what our MOLVI and talk shows people say. They are not very much literate about ISLAM. Read QURAN and find it yourself, rather than believing someone else. ISLAM is all about PEACE.
E.g: "SPREADING ISLAM, BY THE WAY OF SWORD, HAS BEEN PROHIBITED BY QURAN and ALLAH"
People spread false perception about Islam. Please don't get fooled. Find the truth yourself.
