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: honormuhammad@hotmail.com (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.

Hear the lead-up to this new campaign here

Here's an earlier link to this campaign: here

Here's more:

"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...

Also there may eventually be more at twitter.com/RababKhan

Who had no servants, yet they called Him Master? Had no degree, yet they called Him Teacher? Had no medicines, yet they called Him Healer? He had no army,yet kings feared Him. He won no military battles, yet His message conquers the world? He committed no crime, yet they labeled Him? He was buried in a grave,...yet He
lives in our hearts today? I feel honored to serve such a Leader
who loves us?

Who do you think of with these words? What if I told you I found this on the Honor (Honour) Prophet Mohammad Campaign? What if our two Prophets or the Prophet and the Son of God have MUCH more in common and so do we of differing religions..than we may realize...

Until we do a little checking, listening and putting Love into this journey to "the Other" and the One heart between us?

Connie L. Nash said...

There are now over 40,000 people added to this campaign just a short few hours after there were 30,000!

Connie said...

Close to 44,000 members as of 1:25 AM Saturday Eastern Standard Time...

Help support the right to honor one's Prophet and belief system in grace, beauty and respect without any cartoons or images.

Find commonalities.

I am really concerned about this issue and pray to know what is my little part. Honoring the Prophet Muhammad and those who follow Islam in this way is the least I can do.

Filling our space with beauty is the only way we can add beauty to the world, countering ugliness with the same coin will add to more of the same. I love the way of sowing love and reaping love, it's only possible by way of acting this way, no other way has ever succeeded and shall never succeed in future too. Those who think freedom of speech is their right let them enjoy that, lets ignore them. Let us do what we feel right, let’s spread what is good, let us spread that in abundance, let them make their choices and let us make our choices of what is good, without interfering, without hassle, without a quarrel.

Connie, I wish you would also highlight the need for helping Pakistan in the current situation of flooding and large scale displacement. I am sure your support would go a long way.

Thank you.
