Question of the day from my Islam Q & A series. Please share with family and friends especially kids. For more information and to browse questions on my website or sign up for my email list at:
Q: Is it true that Muslims worship Muhammad?
A: Not at all! Muslims only worship God Almighty alone. The definition of a Muslim is “the one who submits to God (Allah) alone. For this reason they are not called Muhammadans. For example, Christians worship Christ and are hence called Christians. It is the greatest sin in Islām to worship anybody or anything else alongside God. Muhammad peace be upon him is a messenger of God who brought the true message of God (Allah) in the firm of Quran. He was nothing but a normal human being. He lived for 23 years as a Prophet and passed away at the age of 63 through a natural death in his house. He lived his entire life like a normal human being with exceptional quality of human excellence. He married, had children and led the spread of the true message of God Almighty (Allah)
