9/11 made me hate Prophet Muhammad (PBUH), but now he’s my role model, says a Christian scholar

Dr. Craig Considine, a Catholic Irish, is a well-known sociologist at Rice University in Houston, USA.

Record-breaker! Riz Ahmed became first Muslim man to win an acting Emmy

In 2015, he tweeted about 9/11 and Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him and his family). A tweet that went viral and it showed how when people choose to read about Islam without any clouded judgment, the truth will set them free.

Such a positive stance towards Prophet Muhamamd (peace be upon him) from a Catholic isn’t taken down well by many, but that didn’t deter Dr. Craig.

Such a tweet is not a one-off by Dr. Craig, but in fact he regularly makes a firm stance against Islamophobia and the rise of hatred against Muslims even by those like Donald Trump.

Muslims are oppressed in United Kingdom’s office due to Islamophobia, research shows.

Muslims rejoice after Scotland’s Police approves hijab as official uniform for Muslim policewomen. Alhamdulillah

He even tweeted a number of Ahadeeth of Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) with the caption of “This is why he is admired by so many…”:

If you go to his website, you see this about him under about me:

Peace be with you and welcome to my website. I am a Catholic American of Irish and Italian descent. I was born and bred in Needham, Massachusetts and have studied in Washington, DC, London and Dublin. As a sociologist I focus on many topics including religious pluralism, Muslims in America, Islamophobia, Christian-Muslim relations, the life of Prophet Muhammad, race and ethnic relations, and the intersection between religion and nationalism.

Such a positive voice amongst all the Islamophobic rhetoric is indeed refreshing.
