The following self-explanatory letter is a typical correspondence that this Masjid receives regularly from African and Asian Muslims. This one is from Brother Yusuf K. Abiodum of Ado-Ekiti, Nigeria:

22nd May, 85

Dear Brother Rashad: May the blessing and glory of Allah abide by you for ever more.

I am writing this epistle purposely to you to ask for your spiritual advice on these matters to be discussed below. It all happened a day before the above date when I visited a christian sister bloodly related to me on a casual visit.

Then an argument ensued between me and other people with my sister concerning our spiritual belief.

During the course of this argument references were made to both Qur’an and the Bible. I should have won the upper hand, but for my little or no knowledge of the Holy Qur’an. More so, the husband of the said sister, a university graduate and self-proclaimed evangelist came in. This man is very versed in the two holy books.

As a result of this, I was just like a toddler with little or no knowledge. During the course of this argument he called our holy Prophet Mohammad (who many books took to be the leader of leaders) the leader of the whole world; an imposter, an adulterer, a killer and agent of evil doers. These he supported from such Quranic chapters and verses which I shall quote below.

For example on the matter concerning Zeid’s wife and Mohammad, Quran 33:36-38, the

man said no good leader to be emulated and to be followed could do such an ugly thing.

<Editor’s note:
In this Quranic narration we learn that Zeid (the Prophet’s adopted son) had divorced his wife and was completely through with her. In order to establish a legal precedent that a man can marry the divorced wife of his adopted, not genetic, son, God commanded the Prophet to marry Zeid’s ex-wife. The Prophet actually refused, disobeyed God, and incurred God’s harshest criticisms in Qur’an.

The missionaries purposely ignore the fact that the Prophet was married to his first wife, Khadija, for 25 years. Polygamy was such a perfectly lawful way of life, that Solomon was married to hundreds of women.>
