Final Falwell: On Islam

The Council on American-Islamic Relations blasts a daily news letter, and at the top of each letter is the “Hadith of the Day.” Well, Bruce Tomaso of the Dallas Morning News noticed Tuesday’s message seemed a little too poignant for coincidence. The Rev. Jerry Falwell, who after 9/11 called Islam’s Prophet Muhammad a terrorist, had just died, and Tuesday’s letter didn’t mention Falwell. But the hadith seemed to:

The Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) said: “Do not speak ill of the dead, (for) they have seen the result of (their past deeds).”
