Using the phrase 'If Mohammed won't come to the mountain, the mountain must come to Mohammed.'

First of all, please excuse my rank ignorance of all things Islamic.
I work for a company which produces publications in the UK.
An article contains the well-worn phrase 'If Mohammed won't come to the mountain, the mountain must come to Mohammed.'
I understand this is an old idiom, but is it at all offensive to Muslims?
Finally, is there a preferred spelling for 'Mohammed'.
Thanks for your help.
