This is the kind of thing that’ll get you killed. Fast.
Muslim preacher Mostafa Rashed, considered by many to be the highest authority on Islam in Australia, has sparked a storm of criticism by saying on television that the Islamic prophet Muhammad was a Christian until age 40.
He further stated that Muhammad was the assistant to a Christian preacher named Waraqa Bin Nofal.
On a show on the LTC television station, Rashed claimed that Khadija, Muhammad’s first wife, was also Christian. Rashed stated that Muhammad was married to Khadija before his divine revelations and his marriage to a Christian is further proof that he was a Christian himself.
Shiekh Rashed’s comments invited a storm on social media, where Zahim Alshamri, a Twitter user in Saudi Arabia, wrote, “Now this has crossed the limits of madness. He took some serious drugs. May Allah erase you and your mind.”
