Now if you believe in psychic abilities...
You could put it down to that...
If you believe in divine intervention...
It could be that.

Muhammad is only mentioned four times in the Quran and any idolization of his image banned so Quran isn't about Muhammad. I agree message of Christianity has been muddied by Paul, instead of idolizing Jesus death, Christianity should be idolizing his footsteps. The Gospel of Thomas hints he was an enlightened master.
But even if both books have faults, they both teach prayer, and that perhaps is more powerful than the books themselves. If people took religion seriously, instead of wearing the badge, the world would be a better place. We need less ego, more faith.
450 Grooms Wed GIRLS Under Ten In Gaza .... A gala event has occurred in Gaza.
Hamas sponsored a mass wedding for four hundred and fifty couples. Most of the grooms were in their mid to late twenties; most of brides were under ten.
Muslim dignitaries including Mahmud Zahar, a leader of Hamas, were on hand to congratulate the couples who took part in the carefully staged celebration. We are saying to the world and to America that you cannot deny us joy and happiness, Zahar told the grooms, all of whom were dressed in identical black suits and hailed from the nearby Jabalia refugee camp. Each groom received a gift of 500 dollars from Hamas. The pre-pubescent girls, dressed in white gowns and adorned with garish make-up, received bridal bouquets. "We are presenting this wedding as a gift to our people who stood firm in the face of the siege and the war," Local Hamas strongman Ibrahim Salaf said in a speech.
We don't idolize His death, but we do celebrate it another part of His life. After all, He did not die but rose and lives to this day. His life is not over yet and we are not celebrating that.
It's like celebrating how you overcame cancer in a way.
Those young girls are young bride maids to marriages.

The Hadith are not part of the Quran.
I don't know how that is semantics, it is common knowledge.
I'm saying both...
& those oral traditions are fallible.
The Quran isn't.
