So, this is a spin-off of another thread that is ongoing in Religious Debates. What I am wanting to know is if Muslims consider Muhammad to have been a sinless man. I have seen the claim from some practicing Muslims that he indeed was sinless. However, some claim that this is not a real Islamic teaching on the Prophet.

Point being, it is Christian theology that Satan does everything God commands him to do ... I've been praying that God would give me the grace to do that for years. Regarding that grace of thorough obedience to orders , I wish I was more like Satan
It is reported in Hadith that Prophet Muhammad had voyaged in heaven to meet Almighty GOD and brought down the ruling of 05 times Prayers for Muslim . This story is famous as 'Isra and Miraj ' among Islamic literature . Though this night journey of Prophet Muhammad to heaven is not factual and evident as far as the Qur'an is concerned , this article will only look into the story of 05 times prayers which is regarded the most important event during that journey .
If no, then it is a dead scripture like the language Sanskrit in which it is supposed to be compiled originally. Please
I'm interested in learning more about different religious-faith systems. Can you recommend one article/essay which, in your opinion, summarizes and represents the best of your religious-faith? That is, if you wanted to persuade someone that your chosen path is the best path, and you had one short opportunity to convince him, what would you have him read?
To get us started, this is what I'd recommend, for early Buddhism. It's the exceptionally written introduction to the first chapter of the...
