Q2. Host: Did anyone challenge the validity of that spirit? (0:57)

Answer

Dr. Labib: Well, if you really try to analyze the situation, you will find out that that spirit was not Gabriel for sure. First of all, because the first declaration was mistaken when he said that man was created from a clot. Secondly, because the declaration of that spirit to Mohammed contradicts many declarations in the Bible, and God would not contradict himself. And finally, if he was really the angel Gabriel he would have said, "Don't be afraid, Mohammed. I am Gabriel, and I am sending you a message." But he didn't. So if you analyze the situation, that spirit was not Gabriel by any means.

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.
