“The Encyclopedia Britannica says that Prophet Muhammad, Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam, was the most successful man in history. If it is true that the Encyclopedia Britannica does make that claim, wouldn’t you expect the world to stampede to find out what the facts were, based on which such a venerable source of human knowledge as the Encyclopedia Britannica would make such a sweeping and superlative statement?
And what the secret was to the success of this man? Was it his message? Was it his method? Was it his character? Was it his political and military achievement? Was it his personal and family life? Was it his relationship with his “followers” whom he insisted on calling his “Friends and Companions” – Ashaab?
Just what was it about him that gave him this unsurpassed level of success in all of human history?
To me it simply does not make any sense that the world would read something as profound, powerful and earth-shaking as that, in as respected a compendium of human knowledge as the Encyclopedia Britannica, and merely shrug its shoulders and move on. And not lift a little finger to personally verify that statement and find out more about it – and to learn more about this man: Muhammad, Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam.
I find it hard to believe.” (Dr. Pasha)
