Muhammad in the Bible by Dr. Jamal Badawi

I found this article on islamicity.com. I thought it might help clarify a few points about Muhammad (PBUH) in the Bible.

BIBLE PROPHECIES ABOUT THE ADVENT OF MUHAMMAD


Abraham is widely regarded as the Patriarch of monotheism and the common father of the Jews, Christians and Muslims. Through His second son, Isaac, came all Israelite prophets including such towering figures as Jacob, Joseph, Moses, David, Solomon and Jesus. May peace and blessings be upon them all.

Perry on Turkey and "Islamic Terrorists"

The fact that Rick Perry calls the leaders of Turkey "Islamic Terrorists" is indicative of his level of cultural and religious ignorance he constantly spews.  If he would merely open a dictionary he'd find the following:

Please listen to this, even if you have heard it before...it is such a good reminder of where we were as a nation and how far we have come and how much futher we need to keep striving towards.


The most beautiful part to me is that over 1400 years ago our Prophet, Prophet Mohammed Peace Be Upon Him (PBUH) said something so similar and so poignant to all times.  Here are a few excerpts from his last sermon:

"Hurt no one so that no one may hurt you. Remember that you will indeed meet your Lord, and that He will indeed reckon your deeds." This sermon…
