The cartoons elicited from the followers of Muhammad another one of their DEPRAVED characteristics.
The pictures on TV showed totally inchoate hate mongering creatures with sickening contorted faces screaming insults and obscenities at all those who are not like them.
They acted as if some people had raped their females or murdered their fathers. No one, as far as I know, has explained the underling reasons for their disturbing behaviour, which are actually based entirely, upon their belief system.
Let me elaborate~
Throughout the Muhammadan world of today, it is believed that all of the prophets enjoyed isma, that is a divine protection against error, and that they were accordingly sinless.
This is another one of the anomalies and mendacities of Muhammadan Islam, that this Doctrine has been established and maintained, against the very clear statements of the Quran and Hadiths, to the contrary.
Muhammadan orthodoxy asserts, that no prophet commits sin, and hence is sinless (ma'sum). Unfortunately, this dogma contradicts various crystal clear statements in the Arabic of the Quran and of Muhammad as recorded in the Traditions, as I shall recite a few examples forthwith:
Muhammad 47:19 "Know, therefore, that there is no god but Allah, and ask forgiveness for thy fault [wa staghfir li thanbika], and for the men and women who believe"
Al Fath 48:1 "Verily We have granted thee a manifest victory: that Allah may forgive thee [ li yaghfira laka] thy faults [thanbika] of the past and those to follow..."
Sahih Al-Bukhari Hadith 9.482Narrated by Ibn Abbas
The Prophet used to invoke Allah …O Allah! Forgive me my sins that I did in the past or will do in the future,
and also the sins I did in secret or in public and that which You know better than I …"
One does not have to be a genius to understand these verses recorded in perfectly clear Arabic or even in English that assert that Muhammad was SINFUL!
In the early centuries of Muhammadan Islam however, a doctrine founded on popular sentiment and theological presuppositions, arose and developed away from the teachings of the Quran and Hadith.
It was first formulated in the creed known as Al Fiqh Akbar II, and it is there stated:
"All the Prophets are exempt from sins, both light and grave, from unbelief and sordid deeds. Yet stumbling and mistakes may happen on their part"
The doctrine of Isma' presupposes that the purpose of al-nubuwwa (prophethood), would be defeated if the people to whom they are sent, thought the prophets vulnerable to commit sins and tell falsehoods, because then, they would also think the same about their teachings, their commands and their intercessions.
There are basically two reasons for the rise of this doctrine in Muhammadan Islam~
Firstly, the early Muhammadans soon discovered that the Gospels / Injil, taught plainly that Jesus was the only sinless man that ever lived and, confronted with this evidence, deemed it necessary to invent the fiction, that all the prophets were sinless as well and especially Muhammad.
The thought that Jesus is superior over Muhammad was anathema that could not be tolerated. Hence, just as hundreds of miracles were manufactured and attributed to the figurehead of Muhammadan Islam, to give him a status at least equal to that of Moses and Jesus, so he was also held to be sinless for exactly the same purpose.
Secondly, the doctrine of revelation in Muhammadan Islam holds, that the scriptures were dictated directly to the prophets by the intermediary angel (Gabriel), hence as a consequence, the prophets had to have possessed an impeccable character which protected them from error in their personal lives, otherwise, they could not have been trusted to communicate Allah's impeccable revelations.
This latter presupposition, led perforce to the conclusion that, the prophets must be sinless. The Quran clearly shows that Muhammad was a fallible and sinful creature. The conception of him as the ideal man and prototype of humanity belongs to a much later development.
The acceptance of this doctrine, contradictory to the original teachings of the Quran, had moreover a Dogmatic Motive. It was considered indispensable to elevating the text of the Quran above all suspicion of corruption,
which suspicion would not be excluded if the organ of revelation - Muhammad - were fallible.
Ladies and gentlemen, please note, that the impeccability of Muhammad is based upon a different foundation
than the Christian concept of the sinlessness of Jesus. Muhammad's impeccability is asserted ONLY for the purpose of establishing the validity of his revelation, his Quran. Jesus' sinlessness on the other hand, is the corollary of the affirmation of his divinity and also of the Christian understanding of the true nature of man.
Prophetic protection, or, "impeccability ('isma), is a Muhammadan postulate in respect of revelation rather than a description of the quality of Muhammad's persona.
Before Muhammad died, he gave his companions a sermon telling them that he was leaving them two things:
his Quran and his Sunna. Hence Sunna and Quran are equal.
Sahih Al-Bukhari Hadith9.381 Narrated by Hudhaifa
Allah's Apostle said to us, "Honesty descended from the Heavens and settled in the roots of the hearts of men (faithful believers), and then the Qur'an was revealed and the people read the Qur'an, (and learnt from it) and also learnt from the Sunna." Both Qur'an and Sunna strengthened their (the faithful believers)' honesty."
Sahih Al-Bukhari 9.382 Narrated by Abdullah
The best talk (speech) is Allah's Book (Qur'an), and the best way is the way of Muhammad, (his SUNNA).
Before Muhammad died, he gave a sermon to his companions telling them that he was leaving them TWO things:
" The Quran and my Sunna. Follow BOTH"
Hence, as far as his followers are concerned, Sunna and Quran are EQUAL! His followers hence consider Muhammad on a par with Allah. This is demonstrated by the fact that Muhammad's name and Allah's are displayed in mosques in the same size and at the same height! Also, as demonstrated in the Hadiths whereby Allah KNEW what Muhammad knew; Allah HATED whom Muhammad hated and Allah LOVED whom Muhammad loved!
Furthermore, as shown in the MANTRA of: Allah and his messenger know best!
And last but not least, the benedictions - actually an act of blasphemy - over Muhammad of:
Saalla^Allahoo A'layhi wa sallam meaning may Allah pray over Muhammad and salute him!
The god of the Muhammadan Muslims Allah, prays over and salutes his own creation Muhammad, instead of his creation praying to and blessing the name Allah.
Thus Muhammad's sinlessness makes him divine!
Insulting Muhammad is hence exactly the same as insulting their god Allah and Muhammad's Quran!
Thus their aberrant and hideous behaviour, as the world watches with horror and disgust.
