What is in the essence?
Standing in the streets, shopping centres, parks, etc. the Muslim preachers holding their books about Islam which contains deviated information and/or the good-bright side of the Islamic history. If you asked them why Mohammed married a 6 years old girl, they will start to talk about the modern world crimes, etc. And then you’ll be rained with curses and would be accused of being “Islamophobic”, that if you won’t get beaten!
Also, if you opened the Quran and read some of its violent verses [Fight those who do not believe in Allah or in the Last Day and who do not consider unlawful what Allah and His Messenger have made unlawful and who do not adopt the religion of truth from those who were given the Scripture - [fight] until they give the Jiziah willingly while they are humbled.] Quran 9:29, they will start to say that these verses have a different meaning other than what is written. But backing your opinion with an interpretation will drive them to say that the interpreter is an infidel, even if that interpretation book is admitted by the (Islamic Council). The same thing goes with the Hadiths.
How about asking about Women? Well, Islam never changed the traditions of the Middle Eastern Bedwins and how they do think about women, because it completes them. You will hear from preachers words like “Women in Islam are treated like queens, we save our women by keeping them in their homes. Women can be efficient by taking care of their children and husbands”. But this queen has no opinion, no public appearance, no rights, and gets beaten and sold and traded like she’s some sort of a property. And every known Muslim woman nowadays should be thankful for the modern world standards, humanitarian organizations and globalization. And I recommend people to read the fourth chapter of Quran which is called Surat An-Nisa, so they can get to know more about women in Islam.
Doing drugs, drinking alcohol, and committing adultery. Most of the young Muslims who live in the West do these things (not all of them). Those guys who will go crazy if a restaurant served them a hamburger without letting them know as if it’s written “Muslim” on their foreheads! The reason I’m bringing this up, is to point at the “seed” that can turn an open-minded modern young man/lady to a Jihadi, that “seed” which comes with teaching of such an ideology to young people.
“You are offending our prophet” this sentence always come along with world-wide protests with violent events and assaults. That’s what we have witnessed after the sarcastic film about Mohammed, the Danish paper who published a picture of Mohammed with a bomb on his head, and the last massacre in the quarter head building of Charlie Hebdo.
All of us saw the raging demonstrations against the newspaper and the social media websites were a battlefield among those who were thankful to God for the death of the newspaper’s editors and others who were wondering how’s an actual killing and violent events are stepped over by the shouts of those who say “You are offending our prophet and God”. Let us all stop here for a moment… If you say that Mohammed is the “most Nobel” why would you be upset of some people’s drawings who are infidels and has no worth in the eyes of Allah? And if you have the protection of God and his angels, what is it you’re afraid of?
I want also to put here one of the Hadiths that states the verdict of cursing Mohammed, letting you know what it is after reading the following:
“A Jewess used to abuse the Prophet (ﷺ) and disparage him. A man strangled her till she died. The Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) declared that no recompense was payable for her blood.” Sunan Abi Dawud 4362
