I have a friend on social media from North Carolina United States. She is Jew by faith but she respects all religions though she is not much interested in studying any religion.

She sent me a photo from a worksheet being given to students of one high school of Farmville, North Carolina in which students are taught about vocabulary and its usages. This worksheet is not from any subject related to faiths, religions or social groups. This is actually English language worksheet. In this worksheet, insulting and offensive thoughts are being spread against Prophet Muhammad (PBUH). I was shocked to read this worksheet.

I asked her was there any such assignment about other religions in the school? Her answer was No and she said only Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) was discussed in this school that otherwise does not teach religion in its syllabus.

Being a Muslim I can only say God Forgive Me to write language that is written in this worksheet but I am sharing with readers to tell them how Islam and Prophet Muhammad have been under the attack in United States without any reason although USA is the champion of freedom of right.

The word “astute” has been used for Prophet Muhammad (God Forgive me) that mean a manipulator of facts, cleaver and shrewd. School did not stop here rather further said in worksheet that Prophet Muhammad was a merchant but became a religious hermit at the age of 40. Word hermit is used to leave the world and took solitude. Encyclopedia of Britannica explains word “Hermit” as:

Hermit also called Eremite, one who retires from society, primarily for religious reasons, and lives in solitude and retired to the wilderness.  Islam has nothing to do with solitude and Prophet Muhammad used to go to Ghaar-i-Hira for mediation but he never cut him off from society and never stopped his daily life routines.

Common Core vocabulary assignment in an English class is only about Prophet Muhammad and the Islamic faith and no other religion has been discussed in any of assignment before.

Being a Muslim I have to respect and accept the Prophet Hood of all divine religions because if I do not believe Mosses (Hazrat Musa AI) and Jesus (Hazrat Essa AI) I cannot be a Muslim. I am sad why people of other religions like Christianity and Judaism give the same respect to my prophet that I give to their Prophets?
