    I would like to comment about Muhammad. ( “May Allah curse the Jews and Christians for they built the places of worship at the graves of their prophets.” ). Muhammad said that this because We should only worship God. God is the creator of all universe. Allah says in Quran ” He is Allah, the One and Only! Allah, the Eternal, Absolute; He begetteth not nor is He begotten. And there is none like unto Him”.
    If you have any questions about Muhammad and Islam then ask me. I can give answers.
