Vocabulary[change source]

The article uses expressions like coalition broke up and went home and The Medinians were considered victors. Neither of these are Simple English, and they are not essential vocabulary to the article. The words "advised", "revelations" (and so on) should also be expressed differently.

Section about images[change source]

I added a section about images. It looks like the statement "Nowadays, Muslims are forbidden to draw him" is probably false. Unfortunately, I do not have the time to research more, right now, but there seem to be different positions, even in the Islamic world. --Eptalon (talk) 15:54, 3 October 2010 (UTC)

I can't find such articles on wiki commons Kazher45 (talk) 04:18, 27 April 2017 (UTC)

Perhaps something about Charlie Hebdo should be added here. And the other massacres, riots etc. that have been connected with images of Mohammed.195.11.204.67 (talk) 18:38, 15 August 2018 (UTC)

Adding images to the article[change source]

Both the English, and the German version of the article have illustrations that show Muhammad. These are taken from medieval sources. Big question would be if we can find a few images (showing Muhammad) which could be added to the article, and which would be unproblematic? - Since this is a good article atm, I have nor added any; I also lack the resp. knowledge on what poses a problem, since this is not my religion...--Eptalon (talk) 13:02, 16 March 2013 (UTC)

Space for objects[change source]

That is the second time I've had to remove needless clutter. It would be nice to get some explanations given in the change summaries. There is no room on the page for an infobox and two sidebar-style naviagational boxes. Stuff just gets pushed down the page, especially on smaller resolutions. We certainly don't need two navigational boxes. The new one contains more than 30 red links, and only six blue. Of those blue links, all except one are also found on the other template, and that one link is given prominently at the top of a section in the article's text. An infobox could be useful, but it's going to need trimming. Osiris (talk) 23:04, 22 January 2014 (UTC)

Image in the infobox[change source]

While this article obviously should have a picture of Muhammad, on Enwiki his face is not shown "above the fold". Their infobox picture is a beautiful piece of calligraphy engraved on a mosque door, and further down there is a calligraphic drawing of his name. Wouldn't either of those be valid for the top of this page, with the current image moved further down? That would still be WP:NOTCENSORED, but not causing unnecessary offence either. 192.76.8.65 (talk) 08:16, 3 May 2017 (UTC)

I note the image has been removed from the infobox. diff, I will not be reverting this as I am aware that muslims consider images of Muhammad (peace be upon him) to be extremely offensive. A Den Jentyl Ettien Avel Dysklyver (talk) 09:20, 27 October 2017 (UTC)
