If wives of Muhammad are mothers of all muslims, is Muhammad considered father of all muslims ?

dar If I address you by calling BROTHER it does not means your biological father is mine also. It is just a way to respect others.

Sorry if im butting in here.... But this is similar to... Why did god have a SON JESUS why not a DAUGHTER as well. Not only that.... But If religion tells us that we are all children of god.... Than jesus is my brother right ? Was he god favoured child ????

It is not as disturbing as you think they worship the cow because it represents the mother who is fertility.
Secondly there is a practical reason they use the milk for nourishment and the dung fuel to warm their houses.

charles There are many things about cow like this logic. It is all about culture if you use cow, it is zero money based farming. Also cow gives biogas. You can also save good amount of money per month .

I agree with you

Charles Hewitt Also cow is not worshiped as god >it is worshiped like nature. Cow has a position lower to human but we must be kind. This is my take. We must always attach to higher conscious persons to get more knowledge .

Vedika Ervin 3 years

So that's why A cow should become your god? Just because a creature is useful, you start worshipping it! The more logical thing to do is to discover and recognise the creator who created the cow for human use, and begin to worship that creator instead Vedika Ervin

We are only wondering why you have to give what belongs to the creator to the creature

Yinka Feldman Ghanta Creator. We should first save the creation of creator to show respect to him rather to kill animal purposelessly to feed the belly.

Asha Leon 3 years

Feeding the belly is not purposeless killing of animals. Saving the creation does not imply that we should begin to worship them

The reason I went on a tangent was to show that the people of the world deserves respect.

Bottom line is Vedic Era in india was agrarian society. If your survival is based on certain animals, what will you do... Secondly i read here that Hindus pray many animals... What is wrong in that... Hinduism basically preach non violence and vegetable diet... So to have a mercy on animals, they made sacred... So it is more a pshycological work... But alas the societies and people which are killing people and animals alike through halal way are preaching us... I am not apologist like many hindus here...
