Prophet Muhammed (PBUH) Founded Islam?
It’s been misunderstood by many that Islam was founded by Prophet Muhammed around 1400 years ago in the middle of Arabia. But the truth is advent of Islam dated since origin of Adam, who was the first human being to worship the one and only God. Prophets who came later were also Muslims and propagated Allah is the true creator with no companions or children. A true Muslim submits self to the true God and accept Prophet Muhammed (PBUH) as his final messenger.
Allah; the God for Muslims Only?
Real meaning of the word Allah is “One True God” in Arabic. It also refers to the one who created heavens, earth, sea, mountain and everything that stays in the universe. Even Arabic speaking Jews & Christians refer God with the name Allah. So essentially our faith/belief is up on one and only powerful God though cited with multiple names (Allah, Yahweh or God the Father)
Islam never failed to respect & give freedom to other reiligions as mentioned in holy Quran “God does not forbid you, with regards to those who fight you not for religion nor drive you away out of your homes, from dealing kindly and justly with them, for God loves those who are just.”
Prophet Muhammed (PBUH) gives protection to jews and other religions in the society during his period of time and warned Muslims from prosecuting and ill speaking on other religions.
