Was Muhammad a true prophet?

Q1. Host: Who exactly was Mohammed? Was he a prophet? (5:00)



Dr. Labib: Mohammed was not a true prophet. And I say that because, you see, the true prophet must receive a direct call from God, especially if he will be the founder of a religion. Mohammed is the founder of Islam. Moses received a direct call from God. Mohammed didn't receive a direct call from God. The story is very interesting. He was in the cave of Hira, outside of Mecca, and there, a spirit appeared to Mohammed. And then, the spirit squeezed Mohammed very tightly, that he thought that he was going to die. And the spirit said to Mohammed, "Read." Mohammed was illiterate, he could not read. And he said, "I cannot read." Then the spirit squeezed him more tightly that he thought he was going to die. And the spirit said to him, "Read!" "I cannot read," Mohammed answered. Then the spirit squeezed him more tightly. He was afraid that he was going to die. And he said, "Read!" He said, "What shall I read?" The words should be recited because he could not read. How could you command someone who doesn't know how to read, read? You say to him, "Recite!" And then he said, "What shall I read?" And he said, "Read, in the name of thy Lord, who created man from the clot," etc, etc. So the Quran is not the invention of Mohammed. The Quran was given to him by that spirit who appeared to him at the cave of Hira. The Muslims say, that the spirit was Gabriel the angel. They say the angel Gabriel is the spirit who appeared to Mohammed at the cave of Hira , and he squeezed him tightly.

But listen, when you go the Bible, Gabriel appeared to many people. Gabriel appeared to Daniel, and Daniel was scared. And he said, "Do not be afraid, Daniel." Then he appeared Zecharia, the father of John the Baptist. And he was afraid, and Gabriel said, "Do not be afraid, do not be afraid." Then he appeared to Mary. And Mary was troubled, and Gabriel said, "Do not be afraid." But that spirit who met Mohammed and squeezed him, left him very troubled. He was scared to death. And when he went back to his wife Khadigah, he said, "I am scared, I am scared! I am trembling?" She said, "What?" He said, "I don't know, I don't know. I am afraid that I am possessed." Then she took him to a bishop in Mecca, by the name of Waraka Bin Nawfal, who was her cousin, and she told him about what happened. And this Waraka, the bishop of the Amunit cult in Mecca said to her, "Oh, be quiet. Be quiet. Mohammed will be the prophet of the Arabs."

So the one who declared Mohammed a prophet was the bishop of Mecca. And that is the historical fact. So the Quran is not the invention of Mohammed. It was dictated to him by that spirit. And I want to tell you something, it's not a miracle, because any book would not be a miracle. Any book, you know, Homer wrote the Iliad, and Odyssey, it's not a miracle. Shakespeare wrote many books, it's not a miracle. Plato wrote many books, not a miracle. The books cannot be a miracle because if I cannot understand the language, I cannot confirm if it's a miracle or not. The miracle is to raise somebody, to heal somebody, to give the sight to somebody, these are miracles! But to tell me that a book is a miracle, I don't buy that!


Exodus: 3:2-6

Sirat Ibn Hisham








Daniel 8:15-19

Luke 1:13

Luke 1:26-31




The Bible: Exodus: 3:2-6
2 And the angel of the LORD appeared unto him in a flame of fire out of the midst of a bush: and he looked, and, behold, the bush burned with fire, and the bush was not consumed.

3 And Moses said, I will now turn aside, and see this great sight, why the bush is not burnt.

4 And when the LORD saw that he turned aside to see, God called unto him out of the midst of the bush, and said, Moses, Moses. And he said, Here am I.

5 And he said, Draw not nigh hither: put off thy shoes from off thy feet, for the place whereon thou standest is holy ground.

6 Moreover he said, I am the God of thy father, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob. And Moses hid his face; for he was afraid to look upon God.


The Bible: Daniel 8:15-19
15 And it came to pass, when I, even I Daniel, had seen the vision, and sought for the meaning, then, behold, there stood before me as the appearance of a man.

16 And I heard a man's voice between the banks of Ulai, which called, and said, Gabriel, make this man to understand the vision.

17 So he came near where I stood: and when he came, I was afraid, and fell upon my face: but he said unto me, Understand, O son of man: for at the time of the end shall be the vision.

18 Now as he was speaking with me, I was in a deep sleep on my face toward the ground: but he touched me, and set me upright.

19 And he said, Behold, I will make thee know what shall be in the last end of the indignation: for at the time appointed the end shall be.

The Bible: Luke 1:11-13
11 Then an angel of the Lord appeared to him, standing at the right side of the altar of incense.
12 When Zechariah saw him, he was startled and was gripped with fear.
13 But the angel said to him: "Do not be afraid, Zechariah; your prayer has been heard. Your wife Elizabeth will bear you a son, and you are to give him the name John.

The Bible: Luke 1: 26-31
26 In the sixth month, God sent the angel Gabriel to Nazareth, a town in Galilee,
27 to a virgin pledged to be married to a man named Joseph, a descendant of David. The virgin's name was Mary.
28 The angel went to her and said, "Greetings, you who are highly favored! The Lord is with you."
29 Mary was greatly troubled at his words and wondered what kind of greeting this might be.
30 But the angel said to her, "Do not be afraid, Mary, you have found favor with God.
31 You will be with child and give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus.

if you believe that Al-Qur'an is not revealed from the God You should go for a open debate program with Dr. Zakir Naik to proof that Qur'an is not a miracle or a revealed book if you are all truthful it's our challenge to all those who don't believe in Islam is a true & only one religion .

zakir naik does not debate with people who know the Quran, he just attacks other religions. He has been asked several times to debate the Character of mohd. or the origin and authenticity of the quran and he runs.

Let me tell you that most of the history which has been recorded is wrong - as said by many greatest scholars of Islam. Firstly, Muhammad(pbuh) was commanded to read in the name of Allah. Was Gabriel carrying a paper with him to read? NO! He commanded him to read in the name of Allah, written on every human's heart.
Secondly, he wasn't an illiterate.He was created when nothing was created. How such person could be illiterate?....He wasn't like a common man, but was created from light of God. Since he was born, everyone saw signs of his prophethood and knew he was prophet. trees bowed down before him when he crossed any road. Waraka Bin Nawfal wasn't the one who declared him a prophet. And he wasn't fearing or trembling. When he went on Mairaj with Gabriel(to meet Allah and see heavens), after crossing some distance Gabriel stopped saying that he could not go further because his wings would get burnt. While, Muhammad continued on his way to meet Allah.

Hi zarine, if gabriel is an angel, he should be allowed to carry Muhammad " to meet Allah and see heavens " and his wings wouldn't get burnt.. how come Allah such a cruel let his creature get burnt because they want to carry important person to see him... Religion is about how people use their logic to understand God.. everything use LOGIC my dear..

If we did not believe in your God (Allah) then let him force us to withdraw our comments, or call us Kufaar - He does not need you to defend Him nor does He need the prophet of the Arabs to defend Him or His religion if that is His true and pure religion and claimed in the Quran.

We as Christians believe La Ilah Ila Allah and that it!! . We do believe there is one God who so loved us and loves you and loves mankind. He is NOT a god who is into threatening men and threatening those who do not adhere to the claims of Mohammad. The True God is love, He cannot but love and we find Him and His revelation in the Bible. Glory to His Holy Name!

sorry chanchal, mohd. was a criminal. just analyse the source of Income of mod. his activities included, murder, adultery, pedeophilia, loot, torture. permission to his men to rape, take slaves.Gave permission to pay for sex [muttah]. I can give you reference from quran for each of this fact stated here. Please get to know the quran better before discussing or making claims. He was a sex starved sick man, who married his daughter in-law zainab, married a six year old girl 'ayesha' had sex with her by putting his manhood between her thighs, the quran says she still had her dolls with her, do you think God will have anything to do with a man like Mohd.??? Grant him prophethood??? only satan will work with a man like mohd. Please don't believe only what your mullahs tell you, read for yourself and find out.

God reveals things to people in different ways. Bible was not revealed in English language. How do you know or believe that all what is stated in the bible have not been tampered with since you do not understand the original language in which it was revealed.

For you to know which is a complete truth between Bible and Qur'an,go and learn the original version of the bible in language in which it was revealed.
Form instance in the bible, many things that were said could be attributed to human statement. Qur'an was revealed in Arabic language which could be learnt and understood by any one in order to distinguish the Truth from falsehood.

The Qur an which you are condemning talks about the birth of Jesus. It states that Jesus spoke from the cradle which bible does not state. This could be found in chapter 19 of the Holy Qur'an
May Almighty God grant us wisdom to know the truth.

Just a fantasy Story. But Even Jesus an Moses talk about Mohammad [the Last Prophet and the survivor] in their real!!! books[ not distorted ones]. for this claim I can refer you to Jews who went to Arab State for years before Mohammad Birth to see the last Savior. All Muslims should Believe in Moses, Jesus and all Prophets from god.Read Quran correctly. you'll see how god appreciate St. Marry and Jesus and Moses and Solomon and Abraham. the truth is all the divine religion has one Root. and it's the God. if Mohammad was not prophet he should disagree with other prophets somehow but he didn't. Don't Trust to some historical books they are not all correct.

First I am sorry if my English is not clear!!!.
Muhammad (peace be upon him), said that body human has 360 articulations, the fact which is discovred 14 centries after (only in 2006 by German Scientist), in spite of Muhammed was an illiterate men, and this is not a flaw but it was an argument to prove that muhammed is a prophet .Not only this but there are many scientific facts which are proved by Muhammed.
is this a miracle or what? Muhammed even himself is a miracle!!!.

Where can I read about the 360 articulations. Did the science prove exactly what mouhammad said?

How could mouhammad be a miracle himself since his father is unknown??? Tell me please.

You are sincere.
But sincerity does not save - JESUS does.
Mohammed in still in his grave.
Jesus LIVES and you still have a chance to trust him!
Be honest. Put Jesus to the test. Ask him to help you with whatever burden you carry. The Qur'an speaks highly of Jesus, so that should be OK.

Why do you think that God is going to judge us if we have not believed in Him AND his prophet? We believe in one God - the creator of all, who loves men and who wants to have fellowship with them. Who said that believing in God AND his prophet mouhammd will make you by-pass judgment? Why the condition his prophet Mouhammad? We have far better prophets than he ... take for example the friend of God - Ibrahim...

My challenge to you and all Muslims - give me one verse from the Quran that assure you that you are going to Jannah once you die ... and let us reason with one another.

So brother Chanchal Mahmood, please don't post such type of comments as it would not help to reach the true conclusion at the end. Your style may be supported by Taliban but not our Prophet's style.

I'm not so good in discussion but hope other muslim brothers/sisters will defend it word by word supported by perfect quotation.

Unfortunately, your book the Quran which you claim to be from God, calls everyone who do not believe in your prophet as Kufar and slated for killing. I wonder if you and other Muslims sleep with a heart full of peace wondering if your god is going to accept you into Jennah or if he determined that you are also a kafir and should end up in hell to be roasted like us Christians who do not believe in your prophet. Sadly - this is a god of fear not like the God we find in the Bible - God of Love. Submit to the God of the Bible who so loved you, He already paid the penalty of your sin and He has promised you eternal life through Jesus Christ the Messiah.

Do you truly believe that if you are a follow of the greatest and last prophet, you will go to heaven?
Tell me what assurance you have from your holy book that your god will assure you heave because your are following Mouhammad and I will consider your claim. I need one single promise in your Quran that claims that those who follow Mouhammad and Islam have an assured dwelling in Jannah (Paradise).

For Not True,

I read the Quran in Arabic as Arabic is my first language. Did you read the Quran in Arabic? Frankly I found it to be scrambled with many stories of the Bible albeit they are twisted. If I did not know the Bible as a background, I would not understand most of it. It is so fragmented that Muslims have to use the Hadith to understand its background. When we Christian challenge you why should you use the Hadith to understand your holy book - you tell us that the Hadith are equal in inspiration as the Quran. I find that to be contradictory to what the Quran declares.
After all if it is from God shouldn't it explain itself? This is what we have in the Bible - God's Holy and only Book. It is self sufficient and one can easily follow its truth.

A book is not a miracle, the knowledge held within it is the miracle. We sleep well thanks because the Almighty says numerous times he forgives, he is merciful, in fact every chapter in the holy Quran begins with, In the name of Allah (similar to Illahi-the Aramaic word used by Jesus(peace be upon him) for God) The most merciful, the most beneficent. If Jesus was God, seriously, he was born through labour? All the blood, maternal fluid, etc. God sat there and says to himself- oh God, why hast thou forsaken me? Talking to himself? And you want me to believe that we are forgiven no matter what I do, he paid they penalty so rapists, murderers, rest easy guys, your penalty has been paid! The Quran has bible stories because it believe in the bible,in Jesus. I can fin you guaranteed 50 versions of the bible, you tell me which one is they correct one? Unfortunately, the bible which was REVEALED to Jesus is lost amongst the stories of the companions of Jesus, Mark, Mathew, Luke, etc, etc.

Firstly, Muhammad(salall aahu 'alaihi wa sallam) was not created from light nor was he the sole reason behind creation.He was the last and final messenger of Allaah. As far as using the ahadith:The one to whom the Quran was revealed directly is the best to understand it. So when we refer to it we use it to understand its meanings in detail and stay away from misintrepretati ons.Take an example: As a student of science , I must tell you that scientific theories are best explained by the one who came up with it. Similarly the Book is also explained by the one to whom Allaah revealed it.

Those who have not believed in Allah (swt) and the Last Messenger (Muhammad p.b.u.h) will, on the Day of Judgment, be given the true account over all that which they used to differ and argue over. They will be yelling "We have believed! Indeed we were the wrongdoers!". Hazrat Isa (Jesus) will say "Indeed I did not ask these people to worship me and I asked them to worship Allah (swt) - The Lord of the Worlds!". So be patient everyone. The Holy Quran always and always tells the believers that whenever you are asked about the final Hour or even the miracles of Muhammad (pbuh)...then the reply must always be "Wait..for indeed we ourselves are waiting". Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) is the dearest Prophet of Allah and his miracles (Apart from the Holy Quran) will be further revealed on the Day of Judgement. Insha Allah.

The Muslim religion stays in a single man: if this man was a cheater or a cheated one, the whole his religion is a big zero. The only way to believe in Quran is to trust Mohammad. If one of you have a severe disease and you want a good doctor how do you proceed to find him:you either trust other people that already know this doctor or you watch first the doctor working on another pacients, seing that his results are good. So, the Quran was only revealed to Mohammad,whatev er he said you cannot prove that's true and you cannot prove that's false;but he couldn't prove that's true and no other cannot prove that's true. What does logically remain? To study his acts and his words. Now compare his life, his facts, his teaching with the ones of Jesus...HUGE difference. In which of them you see the divinity? The conclusion? If you put LOGIC, there is only one...
