Muhammad, is he a prophet of God or not?
answer could be yes and no based on the quran, other scriptures, and
life of Muhammad.
1) When Muhammad was approached by gabriel and
asked him to recite that there is One God, the mission of Muhammad was
to go to the people of Mecca where they were holding 360 dieties and
inform them that what they were worshipping was wrong and they must
repent and turn from false gods to One true God.
2) This is the
exact message that has been passed down through the scriptures and
corresponds with the messages in the Bible, Torah and Injil. In
addition, To even have a better understanding of what took place
when Muhammad came to power, He went straight to Mecca to proclaim
that same message he received years prior to that event.
3) Did he
go to a christian church to deny what and how they were worshipping?
4) Did he go to a jewish temple to accuse them of worshipping a
wrong God? No
Up to this point he was following a message that
has been from the beginning.
5) Then suddenly something went
In the seventh century, an Arabian named Mohammad claimed
to have revelations from God, which ultimately gave rise to the
Quran and the faith of Islam. Mohammad claimed that this fait was
the final revelation of God, though he recognized the genuineness of
earlier revelations given through Moses and Jesus, both of whom he
considered great prophets. He enforced this new faith through the
power of the sword, and eventually conquered many of the lands that
had been largely Christian. These events eventually led to the
Crusades of the 11th through the 13th centuries.
