Supporting evidence


  • The Prophet Muhammad was born to the Quraysh tribe in Arabia, a region characterized by immorality, divisiveness, and dissolute behavior. A region where the simplest of quarrels would certainly incite internal conflict, with the potential to war. Although these people had been plagued by corruption for centuries, within in a short period of time the Prophet Muhammad eradicated the abhorrent behavior that had spread throughout the Arabian Peninsula.
  • The Prophet Muhammad refused to achieve popularity and influence through violence, but through his teachings of peace and his offer of an escape from alienation. He purified those who had been exposed to the immoralities of the human race, instilled essential moral values.
  • The Prophet Muhammad was excepting of other perceptions and faiths, listening with unparalleled tolerance. During his life, the Prophet Muhammad was visited by a group of weary Christians who had a desire to learn about Islam, he granted them the right to perform their rituals and established a peace treaty.
  • The Prophet Muhammad taught universal values, capable of appealing to human nature. After the Muslim community migrated to Medina, they faced growing tension between other minorities. To resolve the conflict, the Prophet Muhammad introduced documents, pacts, and treaties to create unification among the different religions.
  • The Prophet Muhammad, when faced with conflict, solved them with compassion and understanding, rather then stringent policy.
