Islam: Prophet Muhammad

Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him, is the most important and final prophet of Allah. The Qur’an was sent to human kind through Muhammad.

Depiction of Prophet Muhammad is forbidden, as idolatry (worshipping any other entity or object than Allah) is forbidden in Islam. Insulting of Prophet Muhammad any way, is insulting of all Muslims.

However, only Allah, the only deity, recognized by Muslims, is worshipped in Islam: thus, Muhammad is perceived as the key source of Islamic inspiration and even jurisprudence, he is followed and respected, but not worshipped or celebrated (birthday etc.)

“If you love Allah, follow Muhammad.”
