Prophet Muhammad honored by U.S. Supreme Court

As the U.S. Supreme Court judges sit in their chamber, to their right, front and left sides are friezes depicting the 18 greatest lawgivers of the world.  The second frieze to the right features a person holding a copy of the Quran, the Islamic holy book.  It is intended to recognize Prophet Muhammad (may peace and blessing of Allah be upon him) as one of the greatest lawgivers in the world, along with Moses, Soloman, Confucius, and Hammurabi, among others.
