Regarding the word Mohammedan, Davis Pike says: "The term Mohammedanism was for a long time in the West a common term for Islam, but in fact it was a misnomer:
Firstly, Islam is not the worship and deification of Mohammed, as Christianity is of Christ. Secondly, as everyone knows, Islam is more than just Mohammed. It has a huge doctrinal debt to Judaism and Christianity".
