A Museum Dedicated to Prophet Muhammed (saw) - Julia Wheeler

Dubai at night (archive)
Dubai has been a bridge between East and West in commercial terms
The Gulf emirate of Dubai has said it is to set up the world's first museum dedicated to the Prophet Muhammad.

It aims to shed light on his life in 7th Century Arabia, as well as his legacy for the world's 1.3bn Muslims.

There will also be a wing explaining the Muslim pilgrimage, or Hajj, and another for the other pillars of Islam.

Dubai, more usually known for its burgeoning commerce and tourism, is hoping to provide a bridge between the Islamic world and other countries.

The Prophet Muhammad Museum will be the first project undertaken by the Dubai Authority for Culture and Arts, which was established last week by the emirate in an attempt to widen its global appeal.

'Shining milestone'

That is very nice. I wonder what else are they going to put in there other books and lectures may be.
Probably artifacts too, but they will have to collect them from around the world.
