Interestingly, this shock is what made re-consider the Quran again. Specifically, the fact that almost every prophet was slandered in the OT while the opposite picture was given in the Quran made me wonder: if Muhammed invented the Quran and stole from the Bible, why did he have to clean up the image of other prophets? What's in it for him? If I were an imposter prophet claiming to be a continuation of prophets, I would have confirmed the filth against them to promote my own image.
Big Daddy Mo merely projected filth onto the whole entire world that didn't follow his message, rather than the prophets of the past - and he declared himself the seal of the prophets, the final messenger, and the culmination of all that came before, and so white washing them made him look better by association, because he was in their line.
The filth was external - he and his associations were sanitised, and all else was jahil and kuffar and filthy.
Its not difficult to understand. He really was a crafty fella.
