Mohammed was a Prophet, a guide, a leader, a trustee, a husband and a head of family without comparison. One does not become Muslim only by birth, but by observing this code of conduct transmitted by the Prophet.
Islam teaches mankind human brotherhood regardless of color, race, country or social condition. When you see Muslims in prayer, fasting, pilgrimage, or performing all virtuous things, you know that Islam is a mercy for the poor, guided evil or the destitute, and this through the free choice Of each one, for his own salvation.
May the peace and blessing of God be upon the Prophet concerning his family and Companions.
