REVERE, Mass. – A father in Massachusetts has pulled his son from school over outrage that students were being taught about Islam in a positive light, including a section that includes the sentence, “I bear witness that there is no God but Allah.”
“Muhammad never expected to change the world,” the textbook reads. “He was kind, and his nickname was ‘the truthful one.’”
“Muhammad tended sheep on the dry hills like many young Arabians. Later he became a successful merchant and married a wealthy widow. However, he felt as though something was missing in his life, so he went on a retreat,” it continues. “Muhammad went up to Mount Hira to pray in a small cave. He had studied both Judaism and Christianity, and he wanted to find a deeper meaning for his life.”
The reading assignment goes on to explain that the founder of Islam was “upset about the cruelty of his people” because they “killed baby girls” and “treated their slaves unkindly.” Click here to continue reading.
