He is smart of appearance, with balanced features, deep black eyes, and long eyelashes.

His voice is not coarse.

He has a long neck, a full rounded beard, and thick eyebrows that meet each other.

When he is silent, he is stately and composed, and when he speaks, his appearance is impressive.

“He is the most beautiful and striking man from a distance and the best and most beautiful from close up.

He is well spoken, clear in what he says, saying neither too much nor too little, his words flowing forth like a perfect string of pearls.

“He is neither too tall nor overly short, a stately man in the company of two other stately men (one of them was Abu Bakr RA), and he is the most prominent among them and the most well-respected.

“He has companions who surround him. If he speaks, they listen to him, and if he commands, they hasten to fulfill his command.

He is well served and attended, though he is neither stern nor argumentative.”
I tell you, these Muslims sure know how to lay it on thick, don't they?

I'm glad Christians don't go on like this about Jesus. At least they stress the teachings of Jesus instead of bragging about how beautiful he was.

Prophet Muhammed's life peace and blessing be upon him was documented in details from people who lived with him.

OK, so Mohammed's contemporaries said he was handsome.

Was that before or after they passed a law stating that anyone making a disparaging comment about Mohammed would be killed?

This focus and emphasis on the worldly and carnal is the major give away that Islam is NOT of God. God has no interest in this physical world . . . physical appearances and attributes included. But there is a Spirit that is totally interested in this world . . . Satan.

Do u think God created u for no reason?And created everything around u without testing u to see if u follow the message and truth or lie and your own desires.

As humans we have enemy everyday which is Satan who wants us to go stray from the truth.U make a choice either u follow the message and truth,or Satan and lie.Your choice and the conequences is going to affect u alone.

Hey Muslim,

If you read some of the posts in the Christian forum, you will see that many Christians question the teachings of their religion and it often causes them to be confused and unhappy. However, they eventually figure out their own understanding of Christianity, and then they are happier.

Do you know many Muslims who go through that transformation? Do you find many Muslims who question some parts of Islam?

Question Islam? OMG, that is blasphemy...A person can be killed for that in Muslim nations....

Imagine this: One of the top politicians of your country is gunned down by his own bodyguard. Shocking, but not unheard of.

Now imagine this: The very next day, the assassin shows up at court and is given a hero's welcome. Supporters shower him with rose petals and put a garland around his neck.

Sound bizarre? Well, that's exactly what has happened this week in Pakistan.

Assassin or hero? Pakistan's great divide over killer of governor - CNN.com

The way I see it is that the more I become close to the creator the more happy I am.The more I understand Islam clearly the more happy I am.

As Muslims we submmit ourselves to the creator and worship him alone without assoiciations.And we accept the truth no matter if we like it or not.We do our best to avoid sins.

For the last question the more u learn about Islam the more clear it becomes to u.That is why u would find a christins relegious people revert to Islam and u never find a really relegious muslim man convert to other relegion.The keyword here is relegious.

Thanks for asking.

Islam is not a barbaric relegion because in the Muslims countries there are people who just want to live a peaceful happy life.The difference between Muslims and others is that Muslims go by the creator rules and live their lives by it.Some Muslims don't follow that it is not Islam's fault.In other countries people live their lives by men made rules,and they find mistakes everytime ,so they change the rules as they go along.The thief and a drug dealer will want a different rule to live by.And everybody will want a different rule.For example,in America I heard they started to make some drugs legal because a huge percentage of people is asking for it.The best example for that is Calfornia I think where if u have a license u can buy drugs.That is of course doesn't mean it is correct.In Islam countries we dealt with this issue and we don't change it.


But for Muslims we live by the creator rules and the creator is all juictice, and we do our best to keep it that way.

As I menetion before,we can't judge the whole relegion for what some groups or people do.

If there are some Muslim people out there I would like to ask a question....

It is simply a question based on my experience.

It has happened in line up at the Grocery stores a few times that what appears to be Muslim folks....drop something or a few things due to possibly handling too much, or something else.

Because I am next in line and I see this , automatically I reach over and pick up the dropped item from the floor. The what appears to be Muslim, has trouble looking at me and saying oh, thanks.

When I'm in line and drop something and its in front of the what appears to be Muslim, the item is ignored regardless of myself having hands full or being in an awkward situation.

This has happened a few times in both examples. Do Muslim people ....feel that they are
chosen or superior ...deep down ? Is there part of your belief that tells you that apparent non-Muslim people are to be ....avoided unless absolutely neccesary..?

I think there is an underlining issue with attitude that cannot be veiled indefinitely. Will also mention that not all peoples from this part of the world seem to be feeling awkward with normal social encounter with people.

So whats going on here ? There are things that you cannot hide, if theres a reason then can U tell me what it is
