Defending the Prophet Against Orientalist Critique Part 1
In light of the recent spate of attacks against the honor of our beloved Prophet (SAW), it is imperative that Muslims are aware not only of what is said, but, even more importantly, how to respond to such misinformation. How much of these slanders are pure fabrications? And how many have an element of truth but have been distorted or exaggerated? Even more profoundly, how does on understand and explain incidents that are indeed historically true, but are viewed in our times as being immoral or unethical? It is our goal to address a series of such incidents from the Seerah and explain the one of the best methodologies in defending the honor of our Prophet (SAW).
