“Fact: The US Supreme court honored Prophet Muhammad (Peace and Blessings Be Upon Him) as one of the greatest impact on law in the world in 1935.

Equality before the law; Innocent until proven guilty; The right to counsel … this is why in 1935, the United States Supreme Court honored Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) as one of the 18 greatest lawgivers in human history in 1935.

Islam is also

 recognized in one of our greatest buildings (the Library of Congress) as being one of the 11 or 12 most influential and important contributors to civilization!”

    Where did you get that fact? Guess I’ll have to go look it up, Thomas Jefferson would not have allowed it.

    Why is it difficult for some to believe that Prophet Muhammad, peace and blessings of Allah be upon him, was honored by the US Supreme Court? He is the best of Mankind, believe it or not and the best of examples despite what nastiness is/was spread about him. Facts are facts and do not change based on emotions and ignorance.

    Guess we the American citizens should petition to have this removed. Only in Christ and Christianity is true peace found.

    @John

    Muslims are just as American citizens as Christians or any other religious group (or non religious groups) are. So as an American citizen I say your claim is absolutely despicable.

    Muslims love Christ more then you would ever know about. Jesus would never want inequality or hatred being spread.

    Thomas Jefferson was a great admirer of the culture of Islam. Although he was not a religious man, he admired the many achievements in science and math in the Muslim world, and he had many books from the Middle East, including a copy of the Quran. So I don’t imagine that he would have any problem with Mohammed being honored alongside Confucius, Moses, Solon, and other great lawgivers.

    However, he was not honored until 1935, as the poster says, when the modern Court Building of the Supreme Court of the United States was finished. It includes a frieze of the greatest lawgivers the builders could think of, which included Mohammed (described at first as the founder of Islam).

    The Council of American-Islamic Relations did ask for it to be removed, as of course Muslims object to such depictions. However, for various reasons (including the fact that it would be illegal to alter the frieze), it was not done. However, the description was changed to make it clear that the Mohammed was the Prophet of Islam, and not the founder, and that the intention was only to honor him as a great man and a giver of laws, and that the picture did not actually resemble Mohammed as he would have been in life.
