RE and Reflection Task

Who was the Prophet Muhammad, and why is he important to Muslims?

Who is a leader?
 Who leads a school, a football team, a TV show, a family, a country? Does anyone lead the world? 


Talk about leaders and what they do. Pick out the idea that a leader sets an inspiring or good example. A good leader is not the one with the loudest shout, or the best fighter, or the cleverest – a good leader sets a good example.


Can you think of any relegious leaders?

The Prophet is a leader for Muslims.


 Prophet Muhammad is such a special leader that he has over 1.5 billion followers who respect him, all over the world. People have followed his teaching for over 1400 years!
 More than 1400 years ago he taught all Muslim people how to follow God. He is so special that when Muslims talk about him, when they say his name they say ‘Peace be upon him’. And when they write his name they put the letters ‘PBUH’ after his name.
