What They're Saying

We are living in a world of people with weary hearts. All those weary hearts are in need of the breath of Prophet Muhammad, upon him be peace, which is full of love and mercy. Our view of the human being has changed much; we are in need of his mercy-laden vision. We all need to hold onto his vision of the universe and that sacred hand embracing nature.

Thus, the launch of a web portal Project to introduce the Prophet of Islam in the most accurate way to the entire world, correct the misinformation about him and dispel prejudice by a group of women who are devotees of the Prophet is a significant step.

Prof Mehmet Görmez

Director of Turkish Religious Affairs

Not only the Muslims but also the whole humanity is in need of knowing the Prophet. For, according to Holy Qur’an and our belief as Muslims, he has been sent as a mercy not only to the material universe, but to all the worlds – material and spiritual, physical and transcendental. Therefore, introducing the Prophet to humanity is one of the most important services to humankind. Many means had been used to this end in the past. The contemporary world is identified as the age of information and communication wherein new means, methods and channels, hitherto unconceivable, have been discovered to transmit knowledge. So we must use all of these channels as a means to properly acquaint both Muslims and humanity with the beloved Prophet. As such, I welcome this web portal project as a very significant project of the modern age.

We are now discovering history, you and me, and the Turkish people, and the Bosnians, we are discovering Islam now; you are discovering Prophet Muhammad through Lastprophet.info… We are all discovering ourselves…We are together in this boat of discovery.

Recep Tayyip Erdoğan

I think that the lastprophet.info web portal will be very successful as long as it emphasizes, in an authentic fashion, the most universal and spiritual teachings of the Prophet Muhammad, and especially the ethical norms by which he lived, taught and set an example.

Prof Seyyed Hossein Nasr

Professor of Islamic Studies at the George Washington University, Washington D.C.

A great success! The Meridyen Association’s achieving such success in just a year’s time gives us all great happiness and hope for the future.

Meridyen Association presents a model project for us all with its web portal project, Lastprophet.info. I congratulate them.

Prof Mustafa Çağırıcı

Grand Mufti of Istanbul

Websites like the lastprophet.info and any other academic works that teach about Islam and the Prophet Muhammad, upon him be peace, particularly providing accurate information that challenge some of the myths which have been deliberately placed into the heart of western society, whether it be in terms of the Prophet’s teachings or his personal life, are crucial at this time.

Lord Nazir Ahmad

Member of the UK House of Lords

Through the Lastprophet.info project our friends are attempting to re-inform the world of our heritage and revive a “second era of teaching,” taking the Qur’an as reference, and using all available technology.

عَنْ أَبِي هُرَيْرَةَ رَضِيَ اللَّهُ عَنْهُ
أَنَّ رَسُولَ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم قَالَ لَيْسَ الشَّدِيدُ بِالصُّرَعَةِ إِنَّمَا الشَّدِيدُ الَّذِي يَمْلِكُ نَفْسَهُ عِنْدَ الْغَضَبِ
It is related from Abu Hurayra that God’s Messenger (pbuh) said, "A strong person is not the person who throws his adversaries to the ground. A strong person is the person who contains himself when he is angry." [Muwatta, Good Character, 12]
