I am but a human like you

I am but a human like you

“Muhammad is a true historical figure. Without him Islam would not have been able to extend and increase. He never hesitated to repeat that he was a human like others, doomed to death, and that he asked forgiveness from God Almighty. Before his death, he wanted to cleanse his conscience of any slip-up he might have committed. He stood on the pulpit and announced: ‘O Muslims, if I had hit anyone, this is my back for him to take revenge, or if I unlawfully took anyone’s money, then my money is his.’ “
