Mohammed/Muhammad[edit]

Hi, I realize that Muhammad is simply a transliteration from Arabic to latin characters, so it probably doesn't matter which spelling Wikipedia uses. My feeling, however, is that it benefits Wikipedia to be consistent. Formerly, pages were linked to Mohamed, Muhamed, Mohamad, Muhammad, Muhammed, Mohammad, Mohammed, Mohemmed, and Mahommed. While it may not matter which of these spellings is used, consistency helps readers of Wikipedia realize that there was only one Prophet Muhammad, rather than about 10 different ones. The same confusion comes from Koran vs. Quran vs. Qur'an, Moslem vs. Muslim, and other transliterations. If one form is generally accepted, it makes sense to consistently use that form, rather than mixing and matching 20 different spellings. In many cases, in fact, there are pages with multiple spellings of a name in the same paragraph. This is bound to confuse some readers. --Jacobolus 17:06, 4 Mar 2005 (UTC)
