  1. Muhammad

    Abū al-Qāsim Muḥammad ibn ʿAbd Allāh ibn ʿAbd al-Muṭṭalib ibn Hāshim, also transliterated as Muhammad, was a religious, political, and military leader from Mecca who unified Arabia into a single religious polity under Islam. He is believed by Muslims and Bahá'ís to be a messenger and prophet of God. Muhammad is almost universally considered by Muslims as the last prophet sent by God for mankind. While non-Muslims regard Muhammad to have been the founder of Islam, Muslims consider him to have been the restorer of an unaltered original monotheistic faith of Adam, Noah, Abraham, Moses, Jesus, and other prophets. Born in about 570 CE in the Arabian city of Mecca, Muhammad was orphaned at an early age and brought up under the care of his uncle Abu Talib. He later worked mostly as a merchant, as well as a shepherd, and was first married by age 25. Being in the habit of periodically retreating to a cave in the surrounding mountains for several nights of seclusion and prayer, he later reported that it was there, at age 40, that he received his first revelation from God. Three years after this event Muhammad started preaching these revelations publicly, proclaiming that "God is One", that complete "surrender" to Him is the only way acceptable to God, and that he himself was a prophet and messenger of God, in the same vein as other Islamic prophets.

    Bruce Lee was kind of an arrogant guy, i didn't just make a lot of that up. I heard Bruce Lee say things like that, to that effect. People are saying,' Well, Bruce Lee never said Bruce Lee could beat up Muhammad Ali.' Uh, yeah, Bruce Lee did. Not only did Bruce Lee say that, Bruce Lee wife, Linda Lee, said that.

  3. Ehsan Sehgal:

    The majority of Muslims in every Muslim country, except a few- counted Muslims, neither understand the Quran nor follow that. However, they feel proud to be a Muslim, despite the killing, lying, cheating, abusing, cruelty, distinctions, injustice, inequality, and conspiracies against each other, they stay sacred than other nations. Factually, such deeds contradict and vitiate the real Islam of the final prophet Muhammad that should be.
