I decided to rewrite the thread on the Seal of Muḥammad to focus on the seal itself, and not the seal as part of the black shahāda flag, on which I have a proper thread. First of all, let's start with the actual design of the #seal on the #prophet's signet ring.
The most common and popular reading of the engraving today is "Allāh Rasūl Muḥammad", an #Arabic linguistic construction which places the subject after the object similar to the famous verse in the Qur'anic Fāṭir: 28: "Innamā yakhshā Allāha min ʿibādihi al-ʿulamāʾu."
Supporters of this theory argue that one should always position #God's divine name(s) in a superior position when writing a text, as did the prophet do when writing his letters. They state that only the top position befits the Divine Being, therefore starting with Allāh.

Was #Jesus #based on #Zarathustra (aka #Zoroaster) the #Prophet?
Um, #NO, and here is why:
Zarathustra (Known in the west as Zoroaster) was a Persian prophet who lived around 1000 BC. The exact date of his life is unknown, with some believing that he lived anywhere from 1500-600 BC. He went on to found Zoroastrianism, one of the first monotheistic faiths (challenging
Pharaoh Akhenaten for the status of the first founder of monotheism (though Zoroaster’s teaching actually entail dualism, belief in two gods. He only worshipped one of them, Ahura Mazda). The Avesta, the Zoroastrian Bible, was compiled in the 4rth century AD. This book contains

PPOPHET MUHAMMAD’S LAST SERMON

Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) delivered his last sermon (Khutbah) on the ninth of Dhul Hijjah (12th and last month of the Islamic year), 10 years after Hijrah (migration from Makkah to Madinah) in the Uranah Valley of mount Arafat.
His words were quite clear and concise and were directed to the ENTIRE HUMANITY .
After praising, and thanking Allah he said:

“O People, lend me an attentive ear, for I know not whether after this year, I shall ever be amongst you again.
Therefore listen to what I am saying to you very carefully and take these words to those who could not be present here today.
O people, just as you regard this month, this day, this city as Sacred, so regard the life and property of every Muslim as a sacred trust.

Like announced, I'll start a thread on the symbolism of the (in)famous black & white banner in #Islam. This comprehensive thread will explore its historical origins and cover a list of its contemporary users from a neutral #academic point of view. Not for the faint of heart. 😄
As a political leader & head of a growing religious community, the #prophet Muḥammad used to fly a banner (liwāʾ) and a flag (rāya). The difference? According to the #dictionary, a banner is "a long piece of cloth" while a flag is "a piece of cloth that represents a group."
The Companion Ibn al-ʿArabī was quoted in Fatḥ al-Bārī (6/147) as saying: "A banner is what is tied to the side of a spear to rally around, while a flag is that which is planted and left to be waved by the wind."

PROJECTING THE ISLAMIC NARRATIVES.

Unarguably, Islam is one of the fastest growing religions of the world, with over 1.8 billion adherents, according to Wikipedia statistics. It is a religion which preaches peace, sanity, humanness and goodness to all, no matter the differences.
This religion, notwithstanding its genuine nature and its message of peace, is seen as a threat. Since ages, the undiluted truth that Islam carries has always been a torn pricking the preachers of falsehood and taunting them each time they see an element of Islam in anyone or
anything. This brought about the enemies of Islam dragging Islam into the middle of controversies, but their plots has never for once prevailed, because Islam is not a controversial religion. The light of Islam can never be extinguished.

In seeing to the prevalence of Islam over
