Prophet of Islam

Dear civilized Muslims, don't you find it ironic that even one amongst you so-called Muslim does not protest against the murder, brutality, hate-mongering and mass-killing of innocent men, women and children by your fellow civilized men called suicide bombers, murderers and hypocrites, not to mention the oppressors of women? To protest against some harmless act of 'blasphemy' is waste of time and energy, propagating the evils of enmity, violence, madness and devastation. Besides, Islam is all about loving, forgiving and cultivating the virtues of love, peace and harmony--the kind of Islam Prophet Muhammad lived by the example of his life. Any personal injury by word or through physical violence not ever prompted the Prophet of Islam to even think of reprimanding or taking vengeance. When the poets of Mecca maligned his character, laughing to his face and pinning snide verses on the walls of Kaaba, he walked away, praying that they receive divine guidance so that they could be endowed with noble inspiration. After conquering Mecca, he forgave everyone, including the bitterest of his enemies, even the woman by the name of Hind who had defiled the dead body of Prophet's unlce Hamza who was slain at the battle of Ohud. She had clawed out Hamza's liver out of his breast, chewing on it and urging the women of the pagan Meccans to dance and celebrate the victory by making garlands to wear around their necks (which they did accordingly) from the intestines of the slain Muslims.
When Abullah the son of Abdallah Ibn Ubbay requested a favor from the Prophet by recounting the dying wish of his father that his father wanted the cloak of the Prophet for his burial shroud, and wishing that Prophet would come to his funeral and offer prayers, the Prophet complied. Prophet Muhammad was sitting in the mosque at that time, and one of his disciples noticing the Prophet's acquiescence, cried suddenly.
How could you consent to favor the master of hypocrites, Prophet, to the very face of this new revelation?
Ask forgiveness for them, O Muhammad, or ask not forgiveness for them; though thou ask forgiveness for them seventy times, Allah will not forgive them. 9:30
'Then I have to pray more than seventy times, don't I?" Prophet Muhammad had murmured kindly, accompanying the grieving son to honor the wishes of his dead father.

The foundations of Islam are not that weak that they would come crumbling down at the mere whiff of any discourtesy or so-called blasphemy as judged by the pious Muslims who love their Prophet, but heed not his message love, peace, unity.
The one reality, Who calls itself Allah Most High, is peaceful unity and harmonious completeness. 112: 1-4

A few pearls from the ocean of Prophet's heart:
Do not say that if people do good to us, we will do good to them, and if people oppress us, we will oppress them; but determine, that if people do you good, you will do good to them, and if they oppress you, you will not oppress them. Prophet Muhammad
Nine things that my Lord has commanded me: To reverence Him. To speak the truth with propriety, in adversity and prosperity. Moderation in poverty and affluence. Benefit my relations and kindred, who do not benefit me. To give alms to him who refuses me. To forgive him who injures me. To attain the knowledge of God through silence. To mention God in my heart and speech. I should be an example to God's creatures in love and kindness. Prophet Muhammad

He is not strong and powerful who throws people down, but he is strong who withholds himself from anger. Prophet Muhammad
a plea for peace to be continued...
