The Political Prophet?

Dear Friends
Muslims follow the Lunar Calendar thus it is currently Rabi' al-awwal (ربيع الأوّل) the third month in the Muslim Calendar.

This month is on par with Ramadan as we celebrate the landmark birth of Muhammed (pbuh) who re-ignited the primordial Quranic revolution in 7th century Arabia that continues. He also successfully established his sunnah or way…Across the Muslim world there are celebrations which is similar to Christmas.

Muhammed (pbuh) is an enigma to the Western world as he was simultaneously worldly and otherworldly. He was a son, orphan, lover, shepherd, trader, husband, father, widower, teacher, friend, statesman, general, mystic and much more.

Muhammed (pbuh) signed, sealed and delivered a message in 63 glorious years that continues to reverberate across the cosmos…And yes I adore him with all my being…

In the words of Karen Armstrong in her seminal biography of the Prophet he was a 'spiritual and political genius'.

And Muslims have much to imbibe and learn from Mustapha (pbuh) as we are currently way off the mark…if not a source of embarrassment...

Muhammed was and Is…
