Honour The Prophet Muhammad Campaign
New videos keep coming in and much more. Let others know about this beautiful, gentle yet strong and peaceful campaign set-up by a peacemaker-mentor for us all. Mr. Rabab Khan has invited whosoever to respond and/or join this campaign whether or not of the Muslim faith.
The new honoring facebook page: here
Here find the email in case you have chosen to stay off fb, are not able to get there or for another positive reason: firstname.lastname@example.org (yet with so MANY responses, don't expect a personal answer at least right away. This Mr. Rabab Khan has definitely covered a lot of bases and my take is that he's rather a techno whiz atop his deep spirituality. Worth following for ALL would be peacemakers looking for more creative and positive responses to injustices.
(Even an atheist posted and joined!)
Rabab Khan says:
"Don't go back to sleep on May 21st, this is just the start! A potentially great movement has started, and is simply made up of normal Muslims, not some major corporate company or any of that, but normal Muslims! (and others as well) Keep spreading this page around, keep spreading the truth, this project is just the first of many many many many to come. May 21st is not the end, it's only the start!"
Except for the items in parenthesis, the words are those of the visionary of this new and positive campaign.

Here's an earlier link to this campaign: here
"A facebook page/event (was) set up for May the 20th, and this event has been called draw Muhammad day. So as a response, (another) page has been created, for Muslims to come and defend the honour of Muhammad peace be upon him. (and the video says that others are welcome as well if positive and respectful of Muhammad) The way we shall respond is not by violence, or threats, or insults. No, we shall respond back with wisdom, and with the most important tool we have, the truth.
'The prophet Muhammad himself stated that the strong Muslim was the one who could control his anger, and control his emotions, therefore all Muslims should follow this example.
'Responding with threats does not defend the prophet, rather it simply feeds the propaganda, and makes them say 'look! You see , we are right, the Muslims are violent!' Therefore as Muslims we should be better.
'On May 20th we (released) our own video, a video which shall compile some of the greatest examples of the prophet Muhammad. You to can take part, by posting several Islamic narrations that showed the kindness, mercy, humbleness, generosity, and sincerity of the prophet Muhammad. If you choose to do more, and want to make your own video, then do so!
'Let us show everyone what a great man Muhammad (S.A.W) was, and rather than mocking him, he should be praised and given the utmost respect. So join up, and forward this group to your friends, so they join as well.
'So come, let us defend the honour of Muhammad peace be upon him, and let us do this with dignity, respect, and wisdom"
END the words of Rabab Khan who also commended letting fb know you are not happy with their allowing of such a page of disrespec
Mr. Khan evidently was (or will soon be) in a 1-1 DEBATE WITH ANDY (THE MAIN GUY OF DAMD CAMPAIGN) ON BBC WORLD RADIO...
