Answer 1 Allah has granted us wisdom, brain, and heart to judge forourselves. Muhammad the son of `Abdullah is Allah's Prophetand the Final Messenger Sent by Allah to the …Inhabitants ofEarth. My brothers and sisters everywhere! You should knowthat the Messenger, Muhammad the son of `Abdullah (may Allah'sblessings and peace be upon him) is Allah's Messenger in realityand truth. The evidences that show his veracity are abundant. Nonebut an infidel, who out of arrogance alone, could deny thesesigns. .
Among these proofs: .
1. Muhammad (may Allah's blessings and peace be upon him) wasraised illiterate, unable to read or write, and remained like thattill his death. Among all his people, he was known as beingtruthful and trustworthy. Before receiving revelation, he had noprior knowledge of Religion or any previously sent Message. Heremained like that for his first forty years. Revelation then cameto Muhammad with the Koran that we now have between our hands. ThisKoran mentioned most of the accounts found in the previousscriptures, telling us about these events in the greatest detail asif he witnessed them. These accounts came precisely as they werefound in the Torah sent down to Moses and in the Gospel sent downto Jesus. Neither the Jews or Christians were able to belie himregarding anything that he said. .
2. Muhammad (may Allah's blessings and peace be upon him)also foretold of everything that would occur to him and hiscommunity after him, pertaining to victory, the removal of thetyrannical kingdoms of Chosroes [the royal title for theZoroastrian kings of Persia] and Caesar, and the establishment ofthe religion of Islam throughout the earth. These events occurredexactly as Muhammad foretold, as if he was reading the future froman open book. .
3. Muhammad (may Allah's blessings and peace be upon him)also brought an Arabic Koran that is the peak of eloquence andclarity. The Koran challenged those eloquent and fluent Arabs ofhis time, who initially belied him, to bring forth a single chapterlike the Koran. The eloquent Arabs of his day were unable tocontest this Koran. .
Indeed, till our day, none has ever dared to claim that hehas been able to compose words that equal-or even approach-theorder, grace, beauty, and splendor of this Glorious Koran. .
4. The life history of this Noble Prophet was a perfectexample of being upright, merciful, compassionate, truthful, brave,generous, distant from all evil character, and ascetic in allworldly matters, while striving solely for the reward of theHereafter. Moreover, in all his actions and dealings, he was evermindful and fearful of Allah. .
5. Allah instilled great love for Muhammad (may Allah'sblessings and peace be upon him) in the hearts of all who believedin and met him. This love reached such a degree that any of hiscompanions would willingly sacrifice his (or her) self, mother orfather for him. .
Till today, those who believe in Muhammad honor and love him.Anyone of those who believe in him would ransom his own family andwealth to see him, even if but once. .
6. All of history has not preserved the biography of anyperson in the manner it has preserved the life of Muhammad, who isthe most influential human in history. .
Nor has the entire earth known of anyone whom every morningand evening, and many times thereafter throughout the day, isthought of by those who believe in him. Upon remembering Muhammad,the believers in him will greet him and ask Allah to bless him.They do such with full hearts and true love for him. .
7. Nor has there every been a man on earth whom is stillfollowed in all his doings by those who believe in him. .
Those who believe in Muhammad, sleep in the manner he slept;purify themselves (through ablution and ritual washing) in themanner he purified himself; and adhere to his practice in the waythey eat, drink, and clothe themselves. .
Indeed in all aspects of their lives, the believers inMuhammad adhere to the teachings he spread among them and the paththat he traveled upon during his life. .
During every generation, from his day till our time, thebelievers in this Noble Prophet have fully adhered to histeachings. With some, this has reached the degree that they desireto follow and adhere to the Prophet's way in his personal mattersregarding which Allah has not sought of them to adhere to inworship. For example, some will only eat those specific foods oronly wear those specific garments that the Messenger liked. .
Let alone all that, all those who believe in Muhammad repeatthose praises of Allah, special prayers, and invocations that hewould say during each of his actions during day and night, like:what he would say when he greeted people, upon entering and leavingthe house, entering and leaving the mosque, entering and leavingthe bathroom, going to sleep and awaking from sleep, observing thenew crescent, observing the new fruit on trees, eating, drinking,dressing, riding, traveling and returning from travel, etc. .
Let alone all that, all those who believe in Muhammad fullyperform-even to the minute detail-every act of worship-like prayer,fasting, charity, and pilgrimage-as this Noble Messenger (mayAllah's blessings and peace be upon him) taught and as he himselfperformed. .
All of this allows those who believe in him, to live theirlives in all aspects with this Noble Messenger as their example, asif he was standing before them, for them to follow in all theirdoings. .
8. There has never been nor will there ever be a man anywhereupon this earth who has received such love, respect, honor, andobedience in all matters-small and large alike-as has this NobleProphet. .
9. Since his day, in every region of the earth and duringevery period, this Noble Prophet has been followed by individualsfrom all races, colors and peoples. Many of those who followed himwere previously Christians, Jews, pagans, idolaters, or without anyreligion. Among those who chose to follow him, were those who wereknown for their sound judgment, wisdom, reflection, and foresight.They chose to follow this Noble Prophet after they witnessed thesigns of his truthfulness and the evidences of his miracles. Theydid not choose to follow Muhammad out of compulsion or coercion orbecause they had adopted the ways of their fathers andmothers. .
Indeed many of the followers of this Prophet (may Allah'sblessings peace be upon him), chose to follow him during the timewhen Islam was weak, when there were few Muslims, and when therewas severe persecution of his followers on earth. Most people whohave followed this Prophet (may Allah's blessings and peace be uponhim) have done so not to acquire some material benefits. Indeedmany of his followers have suffered the greatest forms of harm andpersecution as a result of following this Prophet. Despite all thisharm and persecution, this did not turn them back from hisreligion. .
My brethren! All of this clearly indicates to anyonepossessing any sense, that this Prophet was truly and reallyAllah's messenger and that he was not just a man who claimedprophethood or spoke about Allah without knowledge. .
10. With all this, Muhammad came with a great religion in itscredal and legal make-up. .
Muhammad described Allah with qualities of completeperfection, and at the same time in a manner that is free ofascribing to Him any imperfection. Neither the philosophers or thewise could ever describe Allah like such. Indeed it is impossibleto imagine that any human mind could conceive of an existing beingthat possesses such complete ability, knowledge, and greatness; Whohas subdued the creation; Who has encompassed everything in theuniverse, small or large; and Who possesses such perfectmercy. .
Nor is it in the ability of any human being to place aperfect law based upon justice, equality, mercy and objectivity forall human activity on earth like the laws that Muhammad brought forall spheres of human activity - like buying and selling, marriageand divorce, renting, testimony, custody, and all other contractsthat are necessary to uphold life and civilization onearth. .
11. It is impossible that any person conceive wisdom,,morals, good manners, nobleness of characters as what thishonorable Prophet (may Allah's blessings and peace be upon him)brought. .
In a full and complete manner, Muhammad spread a teachingregarding character and manners toward one' parents, relatives,fiends, family, humanity, animals, plants and inanimate objects. Itis impossible for the human mind alone to grasp all of thatteaching or come with a similar teaching. .
All of that unequivocally indicates that this Messenger didnot bring an) of this religion from his own accord, but that it wasrather a teaching and inspiration that he received from the One Whocreated the earth and the high heavens above and created thisuniverse in its miraculous architecture and perfection. .
12. The legal and credal make-up of the religion that theMessenger, Muhammad, (may Allah's blessings and peace be upon him)brought resembles the engineering of the heavens and the earth. Allof that indicates that He who created the heavens and the earth isthe One Who sent down this great law and upright religion. .
The degree of inimitability of the Divine law that was sentdown upon Muhammad is to the same degree of inimitability of theDivine creation of the heavens and earth. For just as humanitycannot create this universe, in the same manner humanity cannotbring forth a law like Allah's law that He sent down upon Hisservant and messenger Muhammad (may Allah's blessings and peace beupon him).

Answer 3 The simple answer is: Mohammad is not a propheteven though Muslims consider him as a prophet like the prophets inthe Bible. The reasons he is not a prophet are the following: .
He never prophesied anything and did not know about the futureaccording to Quran (Only those who foretold the future were calledprophets in the Bible) .
Prophethood was his own claim and he could not produce anyevidence (The prophets of the Bible were able to produce evidencefor their claim) .
People of his time accused him of making up stories andrevelations that they have heard before. He could not produceanything to disprove them. .
Mohammad produced many revelations that are contrary to therevelations received by the prophets of the Bible which Qur'anconsiders as real prophets. For example, Jewish prophets Isaiah andDaniel foretold the death of Messiah (Jesus) for the sins of thepeople. However, in Mohammad's revelation Jesus did not die. .
Mohammad produced revelations that are historically andscientifically proven wrong. Example: a) the death of Jesus on thecross is a historical fact which he denied, b) Alexander the greatdied at his old age according to Mohammed but historically he diedat the age of 33, and c) sun sets in a muddy pond according toMohammad. .
Mohammad violated his own revelations by taking 9 wives at onetime while only 4 is allowed in the Qur'an. Later, he broughtanother revelation to allow his violation (Biblical prophets werepunished if they disobeyed God's law). .
Mohammad made his followers to pray towards a Black Stone(which is another form of idol worship) which God of the Biblenever commanded anyone to do (Pagans used to worship this way atKaaba). .
Mohammad always came up with a favorable revelation just forhim whenever he violated ethical and moral human values. Forexample: when he wanted to marry his daughter-in-law and when hiswives complained about him going to slave girls for intimacy, hegot new revelations allowing him to do these immoral things. .
Mohammad used sword to convert many to his new religion whichnone of the Biblical prophets did (Prophets never used force toconvert anyone). .
Mohammad was not an ideal person of any time to follow hisexamples (marring 9-year old Iesha and daughter-in-law, killing hiscritics, kissing the Black Stone and running around it like thepagans) which is not apt for a prophet of God. Answer 4 It depends on who is answering the question. To Muslims, the answeris very clear: Muhammad is the last and greatest of all theprophets, and no other prophet is his equal. Muslims say as theirarticle of faith: "There is no God but the One God (Allah) andMuhammad is His messenger." But to Christians and Jews, whileMuhammad was certainly an important historical figure who was thefounder of a major religion, he is not considered a prophet.Christians and Jews only accept the men and women mentioned in theHoly Bible as prophets. They also do not accept the Qur'an (Koran)as sacred scripture, while for Muslims, what is in the Qur'an mustbe observed, since it is the teachings of Allah, as conveyed by hischosen prophet. (MORE)
