Muslims are planning to land a scientific lab called Mohammad I on the moon by 2013, a scientist has said.
“The station will be called Mohammad after the Prophet and it is our scientific response for the negative stereotyping against the prophet,” Radhouane Fakir, a Canadian scientist of Moroccan descent, said at Al Fanar Islamic Centre in Doha on Saturday evening.
“We will launch Mohammad II in 2015 in order to boost the scientific work of Mohammad I. We wanted a scientific reaction to all the offenses against the prophet so that we are closer to his values than to those of the people who offended him. The scientific labs will serve to remind the world of the importance of Prophet Mohammad,” he said.

Fakir said that the first lab will cost around $100 million while the second lab to reach the moon in 2015 will cost around one billion dollars and will be funded by the Islamic world.
Fakir attributed his choice of the Fanar Islamic Centre to announce his project to the level of tolerance between religions and cultures that it promotes.
