For Islam, Mohammed is a Rasul (they transmit his message through a book), and not only a Prophet. Mohammed is the last prophet of Allah on Earth, he is the “Seal of the Prophets” and after him, there will not be any new revelations. Before Mohammed, 24 prophets preached on Earth, who new part of the truth; among them, Abraham, Ishmael, Yitzhak and Yaakov, Jethro, kings David and Solomon, Elijah and Elisha, Jesus and John the Baptist. Mohammed is the last Prophet and the possessor of all the truth. As the superior authority of Islam, he guides the prayers. If a person wishes to follow exactly each action by Mohammed as a sacred mandate, then this is an Islamist behavior. Why? Because the behavior of a leader of the VII Century cannot be adapted to what is accepted in the XXI Century. If Mohammed is perfect, no one can joke about Mohammed because revenge can be brought upon the person as happened with the satiric diary Charlie Hebdo. Mohammed married 13 women. His third wife was called Aisha, the daughter of the First Caliph of Islam, Abu Baker. In the Islamic writings, her name frequently appears, preceded by the title “Mother of the Believers” (Umm al-Mu’minin). Traditional sources affirm that Aisha married Mohammed at age 6 or 7 (he was 53), and the marriage was consummated when she was 8 or 9, in Medina. Someone that considers such conduct is “imitable” will legitimize marriage with a minor or pedophilia. Another example can be seen when telling the truth to a non-believer.
