Bring your proof from Islam’s Scriptures, Mr Mason
My choice of Muhammad to lead the list of the world’s most influential persons may surprise some readers and may be questioned by others, but he was the only man in history who was supremely successful on both the religious and secular levels…
THE ABOVE EXCERPT is taken from Michael H. Hart’s book The 100: A Ranking Of The Most Influential Persons In History.
I am once more forced to respond to the writings of people like Desmond Mason (Jamaica) who, in your paper of August 17, launched into an unbridled attack on the faith of Islam.
The faith of Islam, as preached by the prophet Muhammad, is accepted by over one billion of the earth’s population.
The message he brought – despite Mr Mason’s writings and what scores like him have over centuries tried to corrupt – is the same message preached by all prophets and messengers before him – the worship of one God, the Creator of all the universe, in essence the first Commandment given to the prophet Moses.
The faith of Islam, as attested by all researchers, is today the fastest growing in the world. As to your assertion that Muslims consider “Christianity the big Satan” and “Judaism the small Satan”, I ask you to bring your proof from the Scriptures of Islam.
Because some individuals, for political gain, may make such statements, this cannot be attributed to the teachings of the faith.
