Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi on Prophet Muhammad
(1869-1948) Indian thinker, statesman, and nationalist leader.Father of the Nation-India
q "....I became more than ever convinced that it was not the sword that won a place for Islam in those days in the scheme of life. It was the rigid simplicity, the utter self-effacement of the prophet, the scrupulous regard for his pledges, his intense devotion to his friends and followers, his intrepidity, his fearlessness, his absolute trust in God and in his own mission. These, and not the sword carried everything before them and surmounted every trouble."
