Are you a blessing or a punishment?

It is certainly not very innocent, this " Innocence of Islam" movie. 

What a waste of effort making such movie that causing unnecessary deaths and stirring unrest around the world.

To the very least, do understand that the status of Muhammad (peace be upon him) in Islam is in no way equal to any Tom, Dick and Harry all the time. He is, according to the holy book, a blessing for the whole universe. In Semitic term it is "rahmat an lil 'alamin".

A lowly depiction of him is absolutely uncalled for. That is the basic No-No for more than one billion people on Earth. Cross the line, and triggering anger among Muslims is a near certainty.

I'm not going to say anything more. RIP for all those died because of the hatred it sparks.

But the phrase,  blessing for the whole universe. That is one end of a line.

For Genghis Khan, it is totally a different story.

It was reported that after conquering the great city of Bukhara, he entered the Friday congregation in a city mosque and declared, "O people, know that you have committed great sins, and that the great ones among you have committed these sins. If you ask me what proof I have for these words, I say it is because I am the punishment of God. If you had not committed great sins, God would not have sent a punishment like me upon you."

A punishment.

A punishment for the whole universe? Not so.

But in comparison to blessing, the word punishment is sure the other end of a line.

And speaking of a small universe of self, a cosmos. What are you to people that you care for, people that you love with. Are you a blessing or a punishment?
