By Yusuf Estes, Former Christian Preacher
D2. Muhammad r lived in total commitment to the belief that God (Allah in Arabic) was truly One God, and as such, He was to be worshipped alone, without any other "gods" beside Him. This is the very first commandment in the Old Testament (Exodus chapter 20 and Deuteronomy, chapter 5) and in the New Testament as well (Mark, chapter 12, verse 29).
E2. Muhammad r ordered his followers to obey Allah Almighty, following the true Commandments as were revealed to him by the angel Gabriel from Almighty Allah. Read below, one of many similar statements from the Qur'an:
“Surely, Allah Commands absolute justice and steadfast commitment to performing your duties to Almighty Allah, in total sincerity and giving help to relatives: and He forbids evil, and disobedience and all that is prohibited by Allah and (He Forbids) any evil, and all kinds of oppression, He admonishes you, that you may take heed. (chapter 16, verse 90)
F2. Muhammad r never fell into the common practice of his tribesmen to worship statues, idols or man-made "gods." He forbade his followers to ever engage in worship outside of the One True God (Allah) of Adam, Abraham, Moses and all the Prophets, peace be upon them all.
“And the people of the Scripture Jews and Christians did not differed amongst themselves until after there came to them clear evidence.” (Surah 98: Verse 4)
He despised false worship to any man-made gods or images or anything in creation as a god. He hated all of the complexities and degradation to which it leads.
G2. Muhammad r always held the Name of God (Allah) in the highest of reverence and never took God's Name in vain or for any vainglorious purpose.
He forbade his followers for ever doing anything like this and encouraged them to use names such as "Servant of Almighty God" (‘Abdullah).
