Muslims have made a self-styled version of Islam. In Madinah the Prophet stood up in deference of a Jewish funeral procession. When told that it was a Jew, not a Muslim, the Prophet replied: ‘Was he not a human being?’ But today Muslims think that Jews have to be only hated and fought with. The Prophet never engaged in result-less jihad, as present Muslims are doing. Muslims today fight and die in vain, and even do suicide bombing. The Prophet never indulged in such action. Muslims claim that in the life of the Prophet there is a complete model for everything, however, they do not follow this model. Today Muslims call down the curse of God on others, but the Prophet never did this. Many actions of present-day Muslims are a result of their self-styled version of Islam.
