Muhammad’s Camel

Muslims often say that being a shepherd is a mark of prophecy.  The prophet Muhammad at one point in his career was a shepherd.

Besides being a metaphor for leading the credulous, being around sheep is also said to impress upon the shepherd a mildness of nature characteristic of prophets.  Likewise, it is said that those who drive camels become fickle and headstrong.

This got me thinking about camels.  One thing led to another and at any rate, here we are.

Yeah, that's God's messenger
