Is the Muslim Prophet Muhammad a good role model for mankind?

Asked by: DannyPoole
  • Muhammad Is, His Followers Maybe Not

    The Prophet Muhammad is a decent role model for his time period. The Arabian Peninsula in the 600s was a dangerous place to live. He set a good example for those around him. As soon as he died, the followers of Muhammad left a lot to be desired. A war broke out between Muhammad's brothers! He couldn't have been that great of a role model if wars happen just because you're dead.

  • Yes Muhammad is a good role model.

    The Muslim Prophet Muhammad is a good role model for mankind because he believed in peace. He was involved in some battles and was very brave but he also believed in peace and doing what is right. Overall Muhammad was/and is a very good role model to follow because of his beliefs in general.

  • He is a good role model

    One reason that the Prophet Muhammad was a good role model for everyone is that he was reliable, trustworthy and thoughtful. This is because he cared about others in the town and not just himself. For example, when he was living in Makkah, he was upset with the conditions. He hated the way that women and the poor were treated badly and also the drunkenness and gambling. This makes him a good role model because it teaches other people to believe in peace and not violence.

  • The things Muhammad did have no place in the modern world.

    Muhammad's pedophilia, slaving, and warmongering are well known and have already been covered. In addition, Muhammad ordered people killed for leaving the religion of Islam and insulting him. He also ordered that women be taken as spoils of war, which is tantamount to sex trafficking.

    Supporters of Muhammad make the argument that he was a good man for the time and place in which he lived. This may have some validity, but it's not a valid argument to support Muhammad as a role model. A role model isn't someone who is alright in some other context. It's someone whose path you try to follow, someone you want to be like. Nobody should want to be like Muhammad. Religious, sexual, and personal violence is not the kind of behavior that people should admire or emulate.

  • Pedophile and warmongering, threatening other religions

    Having sex with 9 year olds isn’t a very good idea, especially when your burning in hell. You said “I will cast terror onto the disbelievers so cut off their heads and fingertips”. Go read a Quran if your not sure. He wanted to attack people, and in fact worse than Adolf Hitler in my opinion. But I think it shouldn’t be “racist” for calling him a pedo, when he actually is in that category.

  • War monger and supporter of slavery and child marriage

    As much as the people at the time saw him as someone who was moderate for the time, and was a figure trying to bring order to society, that was a different time.

    We have grown beyond religious precepts, and by today's standards religious doctrines of most kinds are simply immoral.

    Given that Mohammed married kids, had slaves, and had negative attitudes about sexuality in general as well as homosexuality, and was a proponent of conversion by the sword, then it is impossible to see him as a good role model.

    A product of his time, perhaps, but definitely not a good role model for today.

  • He was a pedophile

    He married a girl of age 6 when he was 50 years old. How can such a man be a role model. He consumated that marriage when the girl was just 9 years old. Only a pervert and mentally sick person can perform such an atrocious act. He was a pedophile and corrupt.

  • Muhammad did not believe in peace!!

    Muhammad had to use force and violence in order to spread Islam. The truth is...No one wanted to know him when he used peaceful means.
    If the Islamic texts are read chronologically, one will observe Muhammad's increasing disdain of non-adherents to Islam. This is a fact that is covered by the order in which the text are presented.
