Do Muslims Worship Muhammad?

Muslims worship the Only God, the Creator and Sustainer of the universe.
Muhammad (Peace be upon him) also worshipped God.

Muhammad (Peace be upon him) was the last Messenger of God on this earth, as Adam (Peace be upon him) was the first. In between the two, there was a long chain of Messengers (Peace be upon them).

Muslims give utmost respect to Muhammad (Peace be upon him) in the same manner as they respect all the other Messengers of God.

Muhammad (Peace be upon him), the last Messenger of God, received the last Message for the guidance of mankind from God. Every action of his life was based on that Divine Guidance and was to seek the pleasure of God. Detailed accounts of the life of Muhammad (Peace be upon him) were carefully recorded by scores of his followers in his lifetime. No such details of any other Messenger of God are available.

Muslims strive to follow the traditions of Muhammad (Peace be upon him) in their lives.

Taking a cue from the name ‘Christians’ for the worshippers of Christ and ‘Buddhists’ for the worshippers of Buddha; some western writers began calling Muslims, Mohammedans, erroneously implying that they are the worshippers of Muhammad (Peace be upon him).
