Compassionate-Prophet Mohammed

(610 - 632 AD)
There is no photo, of course, and if there were, it wouldn't be proper to show it since that would be considered idolatry among almost all of Mohammed's followers. For those who may confuse the Muslim faith or its prophet with violence or terrorism, or generally confuse unfamiliar cultures with unfamiliar religious beliefs, please note the following. Muslims believe in one God Allah (swt - an abbreviation of Subhana wa Ta'ala, or Glory Be To Him, although technically Allah has no gender), the same God who is worshipped by Jews and Christians. When discussing the prophet, it is customary to follow his name or title with "(peace be upon him)" or (pbuh). Here is a photo of the mountain of light, where the Angel Gabriel is believed to have revealed the words of God and which were then dictated into what became known as the Quran (Koran), the sacred book of Islam.

Super-orthodox followers of any of the monotheistic religions, of course, will disapprove of VC-BDI. The benevolent deities honor Muhammed, but they know more about Gabriel than the Prophet. All knowledgeable shareholders are invited to make suggestions, corrections, and comments.

"Shall I not inform you of a better act than fasting, alms, and prayers? Making peace between one another: enmity and malice tear up heavenly rewards by the roots."

"Do not exceed bounds in praising me, as the Christians do in praising Jesus, the son of Mary, by calling Him God, and the Son of God; I am only the Lord's servant; then call me the servant of God and His messenger."

"It was said to the Rasul, 'O Messenger of God! Curse the infidels.' Muhammad said, 'I am not sent for this; nor was I sent but as mercy to mankind.'"

"Prayers lighten the heart, and charity is proof of Iman (Faith), and abstinence from sin is perfect splendor; the Kuran is a proof of gain to you, if you do good, and it is a detriment to you if you do wrong; and every man who riseth in the morning either doeth that which will be the means of his redemption or his ruin."

"Prayer is the miraj (union with, or annihilation in, the Divine Essence by means of continual upward progress) of the Faithful."

"O Lord I supplicate Thee for firmness in faith, and inclination towards the straight path, and for Thine aid in being grateful to Thee, and in adoring Thee in every good way; and I supplicate Thee for an innocent heart which shall not incline to wickednes and for a true tongue. I supplicate Thee to guide me to all which Thou knowest to be virtuous and to preserve me from all which Thou knowest to be vicious. I supplicate Thee to forgive me my faults for Thou knowest them all."

"Powerful is not he who knocks the other down, indeed powerful is he who controls himself in a fit of anger."

"God does not judge according to your bodies and appearances but He scans your hearts and looks into your deeds."

"Righteousness is good morality, and wrongdoing is that which wavers in your soul and which you dislike people finding out about."

"A man asked Muhammad what was the mark whereby he might know the reality of his faith. Muhammad said, "If thou derive pleasure from the good which thou hast performed and thou be grieved for the evil which thou hast committed, thou art a true believer." The man said. "In what doth a fault really consist?" Muhammad said, "when action pricketh thy conscience, forsake it."

"The angels asked, "O God! Is there anything of Thy creation stronger than rocks?" God said, "Yes; iron is stronger than rocks, for it breaketh them." The angels said, "O Lord! Is there anything of Thy creation stronger than iron?" God said, "Yes; fire is stronger than iron, for it melteth it." And the angels said, O defender! Is there anything of Thy creation stronger than fire?" God said, "Yes; water overcometh fire; it killeth it and maketh it cold." Then the angels said, "O Lord! Is there anything of Thy creation stronger than water?" God said, "Yes; wind overcometh water: it agitateth it and putteth it in motion." They said, "O our cherisher! Is there anything in Thy creation stronger than wind?" God said, "Yes, the children of Adam, giving alms; that is, those who give with their right hands and conceal it from their left, they overcome all."

"The acquisition of knowledge is a duty incumbent on every Muslim, male and female."

"Acquire knowledge. It enableth its posessor to distinguish right from wrong; it lighteth the way to Heaven; it is our friend in the desert, our society in solitude, our companion when friendless; it guideth us to happiness; it sustaineth us in misery; it is an ornament among friends, and an armour against enemies."

"Keep fast and eat also, stay awake at night and sleep also, for verily there is a duty on you to your body, not to labor overmuch, so that ye may not get ill and destroy yourselves; and verily there is a duty on you to your eyes, ye must sometimes sleep and give them rest; and verily there is a duty on you to your wife, and to your visitors and guests that come to see you; ye must talk to them; and nobody hath kept fast who fasted always; the fast of three days in every month is equal to constant fasting: then keep three days' fast in every month."

"An adultress passed by a dog at a well; and the dog was holding out his tongue from thirst, which was near killing him, and the woman drew off her boot, and tied it to the end of her garment, and drew water for the dog, and gave him to drink; and she was forgiven for that act."
