Prophet Muhammad is a direct descendant of Ishmael, the first son of Abraham (peace be on all prophets). Muhammad was born in Makkah in 570 CE. By the time Muhammad was twenty five, he had become well known in the city, for the integrity of his disposition, and the honesty of his character. He became known as the trustworthy, and the truthful. Muhammad bring Islamic values to the humans in the world.

Islamic values is a simple, reasonable, practical religion, and free from priestcraft and the above charge. It is away of life for the social, moral, and trascendental development of humanity. It does not demand of man to surrender his reasoning faculties, nor does it demand a blind faith in obscure and inexplicable mysteries. It teaches the purest form of monotheism and regards polytheism as an unpardonable sin.

The other fact, Islam (moslems) relation with West have polarized. Continously devastating condition of Palestinians, who have tyrant and unjust authoritizing by Israel (Jew or Zionist). NATO and USA (Jew, Zionist, and Christian) invations on Afghanistan (2002 until now), and Iraq (2003 until now), had destruction and killings of several hundred thousand people (moslem, or Islamist) of Afghanistan and Iraq. Evil treatment of prisoners by USA Military (Jew, Zionist, and Christian) in Abu Ghraib (Iraq region) and Guantanamo (Cuba region) are some of the major factors which have turned the world into a lawless, and unjust global village.

The other of other fact, the New Testament says, in the words of Jesus: First, "And I will pray the Father, and He shall give you another comforter, that he may abide with you for ever" (John 14:16). Second, "But when the comforter is come, whom I will send unto you, from the Father, even the spirit of truth, which proceedeth from the Father, he shall testify of me" (John 15:26). Third, "Nevertheless I tell you the truth. It is expedient for you that I go away, for the if I go not away, the comforter will not come unto you. But if I depart, I will send him unto you" (John 16:7). Fourth, "I have yet many things to say unto you, but he can not bear them now. Howbeit when he, the spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth. For he shall not speak of him self. But whatsoever he shall hear, that he shall speak, and he will shew you things to come. He shall glorify me, for he shall receive of mine, and shall show it unto you" (John 16:12-14).

The comforter whose mean on the New Testament is the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him), the man whose bring the Islamic values from God (Allah) to human being in the universe. All prophets from Adam until Muhammad (peace be upon them) came to preach the same religion, which continued to grow and grow, until it reached perfection at the hand of the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him). Although Islam is regarded as the youngest of all revealed religions, it is not a new religion, but a continuation of the first religion of God (Allah) to man, purged, and purified, time after time, from all human adulterations, and restored to its original purity.

Prophet Muhammad was 40 years old, when he was visited by angel Gabriel (peace be on him), received his first message from God (Allah). These visits continued for the next 23 years until his death. All of the message thus received were put together by the Prophet Muhammad in a book called the Holy Qur'an. For moslems, the Holy Qur'an is the word of God (Allah). In the interpretation of the verses, must be use historic context, events that moslems were facing at that time, and the Sunnah matter.

Sunnah refers to the sayings, approvals, and disapprovals of the Prophet Muhammad. These are compiled in separate books, known as Hadith Books. Unlike the Holy Qur'an which was compiled by Prophet Muhammad himself, the Hadith Books were compiled after the death of the Prophet Muhammad.
