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

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

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.



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.
