Was Muhammad the founder of Islam?

Answer1 Of coursenot! Muslims don't worship but the one and only Allah. Muhammed(pbuh) was the messenger of Allah.please read below.. As per history, Islam began in Mecca, Saudi Arabia when Godrevealed the Qur'an to the prophet of Islam but....... theMuslim's perspective is completely diffe…rent, as per Muslim, Islamand quran .... Adam, Abraham, Noah, moses, Jesus ( Adam,Ibrahaim, Nuh, moosa,Isa in Arabic respectively) are messengersof Allah and came with the same message of montheism and message ofone god and being creator of universe. As per Muslim ,Islam and Quran ... the Islam is absolutereligion which exists from the day one of the mankind and Adam(peace be upon him) was the first prophet/messenger of Allah....and the last being Muhammad (peace be upon him) ...... The following verses from Quran proves the point .... And He(Allah) taught Adam the names of all things; then He placedthem before the angels, and said: "Tell me the names of these if yeare right." ( Quran,Al-Baqara, Chapter #2, Verse #31) Allah did choose Adam and Noah, the family of Abraham, and thefamily of 'Imran above all people,- ( Quran,Aal-e-Imran, Chapter #3, Verse #33) We(Allah) have sent thee inspiration, as We sent it to Noah and theMessengers after him: we sent inspiration to Abraham, Isma'il,Isaac, Jacob and the Tribes, to Jesus, Job, Jonah, Aaron, andSolomon, and to David We gave the Psalms. ( Quran,An-Nisa, Chapter #4, Verse #163) And remember We(Allah) took from the prophets their covenant: As(We did) from thee: from Noah, Abraham, Moses, and Jesus the son ofMary: We took from them a solemn covenant: ( Quran,Al-Ahzab, Chapter #33, Verse #7) We(Allah) gave Moses the Book and followed him up with a successionof apostles; We gave Jesus the son of Mary Clear (Signs) andstrengthened him with the holy spirit. Is it that whenever therecomes to you an apostle with what ye yourselves desire not, ye arepuffed up with pride?- Some ye called impostors, and others yeslay! ( Quran , Al-Baqara, Chapter #2, Verse #87) So as per Muslim ,Islam and Quran ... the Islam is absolutereligion which exists from the day one of the mankind and Adam(peace be upon him) was the first prophet/messenger of Allah ..andthe last being Muhammad (peace be upon him). Muhammad(pbuh) was born in Mecca in the year 570. Since his fatherdied before his birth, and his mother shortly afterwards, he wasraised by his uncle from the respected tribe of Quraysh. As he grewup, he became known for his truthfulness, generosity and sincerity,so that he was sought after for his ability to arbitrate indisputes. The historians describe him as calm and meditative.Muhammad (pbuh) was of a deeply religious nature, and had longdetested the decadence of his society. It became his habit to meditate from time to time in the Cave ofHira near Mecca. At the age of 40, while engaged in a meditativeretreat, Muhammad(pbuh) received his first revelation from Godthrough the Angel Gabriel. This revelation, which continued for 23years is known as the Quran. As soon as he began to recite thewords he heard from Gabriel, and to preach the truth which God hadrevealed to him, he and his small group of followers sufferedbitter persecution, which grew so fierce that in the year 622 Godgave them the command to emigrate. This event, the Hijra 'migration', in which they left Mecca for thecity of Medina, marks the beginning of the Muslim calendar. Afterseveral years, the Prophet and his followers were able to return toMecca, where they forgave their enemies and established Islamdefinitively. Before the Prophet saw dies at the age of 63, thegreater part of Arabia was Muslim, and within a century of hisdeath Islam had spread to Spain in the West and as far East asChina. He died with less than 5 possessions to his name. While Muhammad (pbuh) was chosen to deliver the message, he isnot considered the "founder" of Islam, since Muslims consider Islamto be the same divine guidance sent to all peoples before. Muslimsbelieve all the prophets from Adam, Noah, Moses, Jesus etc. wereall sent with divine guidance for their peoples. Every prophet wassent to his own people, but Muhammad(pbuh) was sent to all ofmankind. Muhammad is the last and final messenger sent to deliverthe message of Islam. Muslims revere and honor him (pbuh) for allhe went through and his dedication, but they do not worshiphim. "O Prophet, verily We have sent you as a witness and abearer of glad tidings and a warner and as one who invites unto Godby His leave and as an illuminating lamp."(33:45-6) A quick ADDITION "Muslim" means the one who submits to God's will through monotheism(belief) and actions. There were Muslims since humans were created.Of all people there were those who followed the teachings of Godand those who didn't. Answer 2 God "Allah" is the inspirer of Islam upon Mohammad , and Mohammadwas His last prophet . No Muslim can worship anyone else than GoD.Anyone to worship anyone or anything except GOD is not a Muslim. Answer3 Yes, Muhammad is the possible founder of Islam. There is nohistorical or religious data for the existance of Islam before 600AD. Mohammad introduced many teachings and rituals from Jewish,Christian and pagan religions of his time. From the very earlytimes of his life he was interested in religion and used to consultwith Christian monks who dedicated themselves for meditation andre-telling the accounts in the Jewish and Christian Scripture. Healso spend many times in meditaion and at the age of 40, during oneof these mediations at the Cave of Hira, he claimed to be visitedby an angel who forced him to read. His wife Kadijah and theChristian uncle Waraqa assured him that the spirit visited him wasJibriel from Allah (Al-LAH, the god) and he supposed to be aprophet of Allah. This is the start of Islam as a new religionbecause it differed greatly from the Jewish and Christian Scripturein the basic teachings EXCEPT in the teaching of ONE God. Mohammadchanged the worship from Jerusalem to Mecca for Islam where pagansused to worship at the Kaaba with 360 idols including Al-LAH as themain idol (moon god- Cresent sign). Answer 4 Muslims do not worship Mohammad as he was just a human and diedlike anyone else. Islam, Christianity and Judaism does not allowhuman worship. ( Full Answer )
Yes. The founder of Islam is Allah (or God in English); the same God of Jews and Christians. Refer to related question below.
An Updated Answer Prophet Muhammad didn't start Islam. Prophet Muhammad is God Messenger and his prophet to call for Islam. Islam in its universal sense is an Arabic word that means peace and means submission. It is peace between one and himself/herself through belief in the one and only one God. …It is also submission to the one and only one God which leads to peace. Islam in this sense is God mission since the start of universe creation. It was the faith and religion since the universe creation date. Islam per Torah revelation by God to prophet Moses is called Judaism. Islam per the Bible revelation by God (same God) to prophet Jesus is called Christianity. Islam per Quran revelation by God (same God) to prophet Muhammad is called the same name Islam. All God prophets since Adam; through Noah, Abraham, Ismael, Isaac, Jacob, Joseph, Moses, ..., Jesus, and Muhammad (peace be upon them all) call for Islam or ; in another words, call for submission to God as the one and only one God with no partner, no son, no companion, no associate, and no equivalence. Quran revelation by God to prophet Muhammad started in year 610 AD through the Angel Gabriel (Jibril) when the prophet was in mount cave Hira in Mecca (or Makkah) in the nowadays Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. Quran revelation to prophet Muhammad continued until year 632 AD (year of prophet death). Answer B Firstly Muhammad (pbuh) did not start Islam .This is a major misconception. MUslims don't believe he's our god. He's after all only human, the last messenger to be sent down to the Muslims. Allah made Adam to carry out the message of one god,so he was the first one to spread the message. If you're saying 'started Islam' you're hinting it's fabricated, that perhaps a human started it. No, Allah is responsible for what he asks. Allah sent a prophet to every nation to warn them away from their bad deeds. We believe he also sent Jesus as a Messanger( not a GOd)!!to warn the people. However Muhammad did help to spread Islam to a wide part of the world. the MUslims became very strong under his leadership and conquered many people. They even reached as far as Spain and if you go their today you will see ruins of Islamic architecture. Answer C As per history, Islam began in Mecca, Saudi Arabia when God revealed the Qur'an to the prophet of Islam but....... the Muslim's perspective is completely different, as per Muslim, Islam and quran .... Adam, Abraham, Noah, moses, Jesus ( Adam, Ibrahaim, Nuh, moosa,Isa in Arabic respectively) are messengers of Allah and came with the same message of montheism and message of one god and being creator of universe. As per Muslim ,Islam and Quran ... the Islam is absolute religion which exists from the day one of the mankind and Adam (peace be upon him) was the first prophet/messenger of Allah ....and the last being Muhammad (peace be upon him) ...... The following verses from Quran proves the point .... And He(Allah) taught Adam the names of all things; then He placed them before the angels, and said: "Tell me the names of these if ye are right." ( Quran,Al-Baqara, Chapter #2, Verse #31) Allah did choose Adam and Noah, the family of Abraham, and the family of 'Imran above all people,- ( Quran,Aal-e-Imran, Chapter #3, Verse #33) We(Allah) have sent thee inspiration, as We sent it to Noah and the Messengers after him: we sent inspiration to Abraham, Isma'il, Isaac, Jacob and the Tribes, to Jesus, Job, Jonah, Aaron, and Solomon, and to David We gave the Psalms.

Is it that whenever there comes to you an apostle with what ye yourselves desire not, ye are puffed up with pride?- Some ye called impostors, and others ye slay!

Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) became the prophet of Islam religion per God revelation of Quran, Muslims holy book that reflects real God words in its real Arabic language, to him through the angel Gabriel in years 610 AD through 632 AD.
In Islam, Mohammed is not seen to be the founder of Islam, but the final prophet in a long succession of prophets. However, Muslims have often asked themselves why God chose Mohammed as his final prophet. The answer that is usually given is that during this period, the Arabs needed unity to stop kil…ling one another. By using Mohammed in 7th century Arabia, God was able to bring peace and brotherhood to those people. He is messenger of God and delivered the message of God (Quran) revealed to him to humans. he is not founder. he did not write anything all over his life. he was illiterate and was a shepherd and worker for a trader before becoming messenger at age 40. but he was a very honest man. at that time no bank existed and when people wanted to go travel spent their money and golds to Muhammad SAWW to keep them. he was known as the Muhammad the trusted before being chosen as messenger by God.

Of course, he was the founder of the Islamic Empire, before the foundation of the first Islamic state by him, Arabs had not central government, instead there was a tribal system, that is, a lot of tribes and every tribe had a chief man.
Allah founded the religion of Islam according to Muslims. Islamism, however, is something else. It is a political ideology whose goal is to bring the religious tenets of Islam into the daily functioning of a government and its laws. Islamism is a modern movement whose roots began contemporaneousl…y with the rise of Salafism in the late 1800s and early 1900s in Egypt.

There are two major opinions on the matter. There is the IslamicTheological View and the Secular Historical View. The IslamicTheological Views will be presented first and the SecularHistorical Views second, but this has no bearing on which one iscorrect. (That decision is up to the reader.) Islami…c Theological View Answer 1: No Founder Islam is not something to be founded or established. Islam is a Godrevelation to people and mankind through prophets and Messengersfrom Allah (or God in English); the almighty who created thisuniverse and created mankind. Islam is a religion. Islam is an Arabic word that means submissionand surrender to God (as the one and only one God). In this senseIslam began by the universe creation where all God creatures werecreated under their submission (Islam) to God. Upon start ofmankind, they are taught through God prophets to be on fullsubmission (Islam) to God. All prophet missions; including Noah, Abraham, Moses, Jesus, andMuhammad, was to hold submission (Islam) to the one and only oneGod, the Creator, with no partner, no son, no father, no companion,no associate, and no resemblance (defined as monotheism). In this sense: . Islam per God revelation of Torah to Moses is calledJudaism. . Islam per God revelation of the bible to Jesus is calledChristianity. . Islam per God revelation of Qur'an to Muhammad is called thevery name Islam. Islam religion per Qur'an revelation to prophet Muhammad began inyear 610 AD by God revelation of first verses of Qur'an to prophetMuhammad through the angel Gabriel (Jibril). Prophet Muhammad(PBUH) was born in Makkah (or Mecca) and lived from approximately570 AD to 632 AD. Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) is reveredby Muslims but as a man, not as a God or son of God. Islam teachesthat there is only One God, whom Muslims call "Allah" in Arabic (orGod in English and same God worshiped in Judaism and Christianity). Answer 2: Allah is the Founder Islam religion is founded by Allah Himself. Allah tells in Quranthat Islam has always been the right religion since the 1st humanon Earth Adam and Eve (Peace be upon them). The last prophet sentfrom Allah was Muhammad (Peace be upon him). So he's the lastprophet of Islam. Mohammad was born in Mecca, the capital of Arabia, of mother Aminaand father Abdullah, on the 20th August 570 A.D. His father diedbefore his birth. Answer 3: No Founder Islam is not founded. Islam is a revelation from Allah "God" thealmighty who created this universe and created mankind and knowsexactly what he needs to be straighten. Over the ages, Allah "God" the almighty, the Creator sent thousandsof messengers to his creation "mankind" informing them of theirCreator who should be worshiped alone and not to worship any of hiscreation like animals, trees, mountains, idols...etc. People tend to either disbelieve these messengers and prophets oreven kill them. Adam hims self, peace be upon him all God's messengers, was amessenger to his sons. Then Abraham, his sons too until Jesus who according the holyQur'an and the old scripture told his followers the same message"to worship God alone" and that a last prophet "Mohammed of Islam"will come after him. Islam came with the same message, but with broader boundaries, ofthe previous celestial religions from Adam to Christ, the ONENESSof God the Creator and no other gods are to be worshiped besidehim. The holy Qur'an of Islam is the true word of God which no man canevery put one sentence like it. God used to send messengers withmiracles which suit their time and environment. Moses time wasfamous of magicians, Christ has miracles such as bringing life tothe dead, curing lepers...etc. and Mohammed's miracles were manyincluding the Qur'an, language miracle as the Arabs were verystrong in language and they poets... but Allah challenged them tomake one sentence equal to the Qur'anic verses and they could notand will never do. No human is responsible of founding, creating, or establishingIslam religion. Islam religion is God religion. Islam religion isper God (Allah) revelation of Qur'an to prophet Muhammad throughthe Angel Gabriel. Qur'an revelation started in year 610 AD andcontinued until year 632 AD (year of death of the prophet). Islam religion, as defined above, should not be confused by Islam,as an Arabic word, that in its universal sense means peace and fullsubmission to God (Allah), the one and only one God with nopartner, no father, no son, no companion, and no resemblance. Islamin this sense is the main God mission to all prophets since startof mankind; including Noah, Abraham, Moses, Jesus, and Muhammad.However, Judaism and Christianity are the God religions per Godrevelation of , respectively, Torah and Bible to Moses and Jesus aswell as the very name Islam is God religion per God revelation ofQur'an to prophet Muhammad. Refer to related questions on why Qur'an was revealed and thegolden rules in Qur'an. Answer 4: Shiite View -- Allah is the Founder and Ahlal-Bayt is Protector There is only one founder of Islam. Allah is the founder of Islam. salaam of course Allah nominate Hazrat Muhammad (saws) as messengerof whole universe and to safe of Islam only the family of HazratMuhammad named imam Ali, Bibi Fatima ,Hassan and special imamHussein in karbala. Secular Historical Answer Answer 1: Distinction between islam and Islam, which MohammedFounded For many Muslims the term "Islam" has two meanings: the DivineReligion of Submission to God's Will (often called Islam with asmall "i") and the Institutionalized Belief as Found in Qur'an andRevealed by Muhammad's Prophecy (often called Islam with a capital"I"). islam with a small "i" is a concept that comes out of Islam with acapital "I" and projects the Established Religion of Islam backinto the period before would have identified as Muslim. The purposeof said belief, in a functional sense, is to gird Islam in thehistory afforded by the Judeo-Christian prophetic lineage andensure its authenticity. islam also affords the believer in Islam acontinuity of tradition which Mohammed only continued and correctedas opposed to having the religion of Islam be an affront ordisagreement with other divinely-inspired religions. Since islam isderivative of Islam, it does not actually exist prior to Islam. Islam, as an Established Religion, was organized and directed byMohammed, who was born in 570 C.E. at Mecca, in Saudi Arabia.According to Islam, he received revelations from God in Mecca infrom the year 610-632 C.E. He was supported by several familymembers like his uncle Ali Ibn Talib and his first wife Khadija topursue these prophecies. He converted other members to his nascentreligion before being expelled from Mecca to Yethrib (now known asMedina) in 622 C.E. When Mohammed became the Chief Hakam orJudge/Administrator of Yethrib, he received many new revelationsand began to ask members of his community to memorize theserevelations (along with prior ones). These memorizers (in ArabicHafeths) would eventually be responsible for the creation of oneunified Qur'an. By Mohammed's death, he had conquered all of Arabiaand converted most of Arabia to his new faith, establishing thegrounds for an Islamic Caliphate, which succeeded him. Answer 2: Mohammed Founded Islam Islam was founded by an illiterate trade merchant named Muhammadibn Abdallah. Until approximately 25 years of age he was Pagan,like his parents and grandparents. He never worshiped an idol. Thenin the cave of Hira he was approached by angel. He was scared .however, his wife Khadija convinced him he was approached by anangel who ordered him to recite the first verses of the newreligion. The new religion is called "Islam" that means"submission". this means submission to Allah (or God and same Godworshiped in Judaism and Christianity). However, after trying to spread this new religion in his home townof Makkah (or Mecca), Muhammad found that 10 years later hisfollowers could be counted by the fingers of two hands. This didnot satisfy his ambitions and he fled to Medina and started to robcaravans from Mecca. These raids quickly brought him enough moneyto recruit new followers with whom he started to raid other tribessubduing them and making them his allies. Very soon his wealth grew as well as the number of his followers,and then he started the expansion on other lands. This process wasfollowed by his companions after his death and in less than 150years, Muslims subdued and made islamic the vast territories fromArabia, through Egypt and Palestine to the North Africa and then toEurope in the North to Persia and India in the East. Additional Comments on the Secular Historical View from theproponents of the Islamic Theological View . Prophet Muhammad didn't escape from Makkah but was invited bysome forty people from from Medina; who converted to Islam; tomigrate to Medina. He accepted per Allah (or God command to him asthe Meccas planned to assassinate him and surrounded his home toassassinate him in the morning when he comes out from home.However, by God miracle to him, he left in morning while theydidn't see him when he dispersed some sands on their heads. . Many Muslims followed him while he was in Mecca (or Makkah) butthey migrated to Ethiopia to avoid the tyranny of Meccas who didn'tconvert to Islam. . Prophet Muhammad never worshiped an idol before being a prophetand God messenger. He followed his grand grand father Ibrahim (orAbraham) and worshiped; as prophet Abraham; Allah (or God) as theone and only one God). . Prophet Muhammad never forced anyone to convert to Islam. Thiswas by God teachings and commands. He never raised wars against anyneighboring areas but just was obliged to defend his territoriesagainst outside attacks. even Makkah (or Mecca) he entered itwithout war and removed the idols around Kaaba and then returnedback to Medina even without claiming all the properties belongingto him and/or any of his Muslim followers.) . As any God religion, the founder of the religion is Allah (orGod in English and same God worshiped in Christianity and Judaismand same God who founded Judaism and Christianity religions . Islam is a religion. As all God religions, it should be writtenwith first letter in capital. Never, heard about the saying aboveto be written occasionally with a capital letter and occasionallywith small letter. The contributor to answer 5 above is persuadedto read the Quran and to read about the proofs of Quran divinityand that it is not a human authored text as claimed. ProphetMuhammad was not expelled from Makkah (or Mecca). He was informedby God that the non believers of Makkah (the idols worshipers)planned to assassinate him and was commanded by God to go toYethrib (that called later Al-madinah or Medina) where there aremany Muslim believers. The contributor to answer 5 above is calledto read about the Christian Waraqa Ibn Nofal who told Muhammad thatwhat Muhammad saw during worshiping in the Hiraa Cave is an angeland what he received from him is God words and that Muhammad iswritten in the Bible as the forthcoming and last God prophet. 5)Muhammad never attacked any Arabic site in the Arabian peninsulabut he was attacked many times by them and he defended himself.Even Makkah (or Mecca) he returned back to it without war and justbecause the nonbelievers prevented Muslims from practicingpilgrimage (or Hajj). 6) Qur'an is recited daily by Muslims day andnight and during their prayings immediately after the Qur'an verseGod revelations in life of Muhammad and till now. Accordingly,there was no way of any alterations of Qur'an verses. It is theonly God holy book that was not subject to any human alterationssince its revelation by God through the angel Gabriel (or Jibril).All what was done after prophet Muhammad death is its compilation.Otherwise, how do you justify that Qur'an after more than 14centuries still the same without single letter change contrary toother holy books. . It is to be emphasized that Islam is interpreted in twoaspects. The first is the universal Islam that is the call of allGod prophets (peace be upon them all) since start of mankindcreation and it calls all people to full submission to God; theCreator; as the one and only God with no partner, no associate, andno equivalence. The second is Islam per Quran revelation to prophetMuhammad (peace be upon him) and was called the same name Islam asit is the last God religion and Quran is the last God holy book.

Islam was not founded by prophet Muhammad (PBUH) or any human. Islam is an Arabic word that means submission to Allah (God in English). In this universal sense, it is Allah command to all His creatures since start of universe creation and even before. As for mankind, Allah left to people the choice …of either submitting (or Islam) to Him or denying submitting (Islam) to Him and then on the Day of Judgment they will be either rewarded, forgiven, or punished by the All-Just All-Merciful Allah. Accordingly, Islam is the religion named and founded by Allah (God in English). . Islam per Allah revelation of Torah to prophet Moses (PBUH) is called Judaism, . Islam per Allah revelation to the Bible to prophet Jesus (PBUH) is called Christianity, and . Islam per Allah revelation of the Quran to prophet Muhammad (PBUH) is called the very name Islam. Islam per Quran revelation to prophet Muhammad (PBUH) started by start of God revelation of the first verse of Quran in year 610 AD through the revelation of the last verse of Quran in year 632 AD. The Prophet Muhammad. Answer A Muhammad peace be upon him, did not start Islam. He was Allah's last messenger just like Mooses ,Jesus and many others. Angel Gabriel was sent by Allah to the Prophet to reveal the Holy book Quran over him so he would preach it to others. Answer B In addition to the above, that I fully agree upon, I would like to add the following: Islam religion is not a human religion to have a human founder. Islam religion is the religion per God revelation of Quran to prophet Muhammad (PBUH) through the angel Gabriel. Quran revelation started by year 610 AD and continued through year 632 Ad (year of prophet Muhammad death). It is also important to highlight that Islam is an Arabic word that means submission to God and surrender to His will. The root of the word Islam is 'selm' that means peace. This indicates that peace between you and yourself and God and between yourself and mankind is achieved through submission to God, the Creator, i.e through Islam. In light of this universal sense of Islam, God says in Quran that Islam is the faith of all prophets and their followers since start of mankind, including Noah, Abraham, Moses, Jesus, and Muhammad (Peace be upon them all). Islam is even God mission to all God creations including our universe, the planets, the sun and the moon, the rivers and the seas, ..., and all that we know and that we don't know. All these creatures have full submission (Islam) to God, the one and only one God with no partner, no son, and no associate. Answer C Islam is NOT a new religion founded by Prophet Mohammad(peace be on him). Islam means submission and obedience to the creator who created us. A person who does Islam is a Muslim, like a person who drives is a driver and a person who sings is a singer. A person does NOT become a Muslim because of a name or because he was born in a particular geographic location or family. If a person irrespective of his name, skin color, social status etc submits and obeys the creator, he is called as a Muslim in Arabic. If you submit and obey your creator, you are called a Muslim. All the prophets of God right from Adam,Noah,Solomon,Abraham,David,JESUS(peace be on them all) practiced and preached the same way of life called Islam(Submission to the CREATOR). The last and the FINAL Prophet and Messenger of God was Prophet Mohammad(peace be on him). WHAT DOES THE QURAN SAY? The message of all the prophets of God was the same. All the prophets of God taught people to worship the God who created them (complete submission and obedience to God). "And We sent not before you any messenger except that We revealed to him that, " There is no deity except Me, so worship Me ." QURAN Chapter 21: Verse 25 Prophet Mohammed (peace be on him) did not bring a new message. He too revived the same message brought by the previous prophets sent by God. Recite: " Nothing is said to you , [O Moh Ù ammad], except what was already said to the messengers before you. " QURAN Chapter 41: Verse 43 He has ordained for you of the same religion what He enjoined upon Noah and that which We have revealed to you, [O MohÙa mmad], and what We enjoined upon Abraham and Moses and Jesus. (QURAN Chapter 42: Verse 13) Refer to link below. ( Full Answer )

He had someone write the Holy Qur'an. He was a prophet, like others before him. The Qur'an was written word for word in the Qur'an as they were given to him by the angel Christians call Gabriel (told Mary she was pregnant with Gods son) by decree of God himself. A few words were given to Muhammad di…rectly from God (like the part of Islam where true Muslims must pray 5 times a day).

Prophethood is not unknown to heavenly revealed religions, such as Judaism and Christianity. In Islam, however, it has a special status and significance. According to Islam, Allah created man for a noble purpose: to worship Him and lead a virtuous life based on His teachings and guidance. How would …man know his role and purpose of his existence unless he received clear and practical instructions of what Allah wants him to do? Here comes the need for prophethood. Thus Allah had chosen from every nation a prophet or more to covey His Message to people. One might ask: How were the prophets chosen and who were entitled to this great honor? Prophethood is Allah's blessing and favor that He may bestow on whom He wills. However, from surveying the various messengers throughout history, three features of a prophet may be recognized: He is the best in his community morally and intellectually. This is necessary because a prophet's life serves as a model for his followers. His personality should attract people to accept his message rather than drive them away by his imperfect character. After receiving the message he is infallible. That is, he would not commit any sin. He might make some minor mistakes which are usually corrected by revelation. He is supported by miracles to prove that he is not an impostor. Those miracles are granted by the power and permission of God and are usually in the field in which his people excel and are recognized as superiors. We might illustrate this by quoting the major miracles of the three prophets of the major world religions: Judaism, Christianity and Islam. Moses' contemporaries were excellent in magic. So his major miracle was to defeat the best magicians of Egypt of his days. Jesus' contemporaries were recognized as skillful physicians. Therefore, his miracles were to raise the dead and cure the incurable diseases. The Arabs, the contemporaries of the Prophet Mohammed, were known for their eloquence and magnificent poetry. So Prophet Muhammad's major miracle was the Quran, the equivalent of which the whole legion of the Arab poets and orators could not produce despite the repeated challenge from the Quran itself. Again Muhammad's miracle has something special about it. All previous miracles were limited by time and place, i.e., they were shown to specific people at a specific time. Not so the miracle of Muhammad, the Quran. It is a universal and everlasting miracle. Previous generations witnessed it and future generations will witness its miraculous nature in terms of its style, content and spiritual uplifting. These still can be tested and will thereby prove the divine origin of the Quran. Every prophet states clearly that what he receives is not of his own but from God for the well-being of mankind. He also confirms what was revealed before him and what may be revealed after him. A prophet does this to show that he is simply conveying the message which is entrusted to him by the One True God of all people in all ages. So the message is one in essence and for the same purpose. Therefore, it should not deviate from what was revealed before him or what might come after him. Prophets are necessary for conveying God's instructions and guidance to mankind. We have no way of knowing why we were created. What will happen to us after death? Is there any life after death? Are we accountable for our actions? In other words, is there any reward or punishment for our deeds in this life? These and so many other questions about God, angels, paradise, hell, etc. can not be answered without revelation from the Creator and Knower of the unseen. Those answers must be authentic and must be brought by individuals whom we trust and respect. That is why, messengers are the select of their societies in terms of moral conduct and intellectual ability. Hence, the slanderous Biblical stories about some of the great prophets are not accepted by Muslims. For example, Lot is reported to have committed fornication while drunk, with his daughters; or David sent one his leaders to death to marry his wife. Prophets to Muslims are greater than what these stories indicate. These stories can not be true from the Islamic point of view. The prophets are also miraculously supported by God and instructed by Him to affirm the continuity of the message. The content of the prophets' message to mankind can be summarized as follows: Clear concept about God: His attributes, His creation, what should and should not be ascribed to Him. Clear idea about the unseen world, the angels, jinn (spirits), Paradise and Hell. Why has God created us? What does He want from us and what is the reward or punishment for obeying or disobeying Him? How to run our societies according to His will? That is, clear instructions and laws that, when applied correctly and honestly, will result in a happy and ideal society. It is clear from the above discussion that there is no substitute for prophets. Even today with the advancement of science, the only authentic source of information about the supernatural world is revelation. Guidance can be obtained neither from science nor from mystic experience. The first is too materialistic and too limited; the second is too subjective and frequently too misleading. Now one might ask: How many prophets has God sent to humanity? We do not know for sure. Some Muslim scholars have suggested 240 thousand prophets. We are only sure of what is clearly mentioned in the Quran, that is, God has sent a messenger (or more) to every nation. That is because it is one of God's principles that He will never call a people to account unless He has made clear to them what to do and what not to do. The Quran mentions the names of 25 prophets and indicates that there have been others who were not mentioned to the Prophet Mohammed. These 25 include Noah, the man of the Ark, Abraham, Moses, Jesus, and Muhammad.These five are the greatest among God's messengers. They are called 'the resolute' prophets. An outstanding aspect of the Islamic belief in prophethood is that Muslims believe in and respect all the messengers of God with no exceptions. Since all the prophets came from the same One God, for the same purpose - to lead mankind to God - belief in them all is essential and logical; accepting some and rejecting others has to be based on misconceptions of the prophets' role or racial bias. The Muslims are the only people in the world who consider the belief in all the prophets of God an article of faith. Thus the Jews reject Jesus Christ and Muhammad; the Christians reject Muhammad and in reality reject Moses because they do not abide by his laws. The Muslims accept them all as messengers of God who brought guidance to mankind. However, the revelation which those prophets brought from God has been tampered with in one way or the other. The belief in all the messengers of God is enjoined on the Muslims by the Quran. "Say (O Muslims): we believe in Allah and that which is revealed to us and that which was revealed to Abraham and Ishmael, and Isaac and Jacob, and their children, and that which Moses and Jesus received and that the prophets received from their Lord. We make no distinction between any of them and unto Him we have surrendered." (2:136) The Quran continues in the following verses to instruct the Muslims that this is the true and impartial belief. If other nations believe in the same, they are following their own whims and biases and God will take care of them. Thus we read: "And if they believe in what you believe, then they are rightly guided. But if they turn away, then they are in disunity, and Allah will suffice you against them. He is the Hearer, the Knower. This is God's religion and Who is better than God in religion?" (2:137-38) There are, at least, two important points related to prophethood that need to be clarified. These points concern the roles of Jesus and Muhammad as prophets who are usually misunderstood. The Quranic account of Jesus emphatically rejects the concept of his 'Divinity' and 'Divine Sonship' and presents him as one of the great prophets of God. The Quran makes it clear that the birth of Jesus without a father does not make him son of God and mentions in this respect Adam who was created by God without a father and mother: "Truly the likeness of Jesus, in God's sight, is as Adam's likeness; He created him of dust, then said He unto him, 'Be', and he was." (3:59) Like other prophets Jesus also performed miracles. For example, he raised the dead and cured the blind and lepers, but while showing these miracles he always made it clear that it was all from God. Actually the misconceptions about the personality and mission of Jesus found a way among his followers because the Divine message that he preached was not recorded during his presence in the world, rather it was recorded after a lapse of about hundred years. According to the Quran he was sent to the children of Israel; he confirmed the validity of the Torah which was revealed to Moses and he also brought the glad tidings of a final messenger after him. "And when Jesus son of Mary said, 'Children of Israel, I am indeed the Messenger to you, confirming the Torah that is before me, and giving good tidings of a Messenger who shall come after me, whose name shall be the PRAISED ONE." (61:6) (The capitalized portion is the translation of Ahmad which is Prophet Muhammed's name.) However, the majority of the Jews rejected his ministry. They plotted against his life and in their opinion crucified him. But the Quran refutes this opinion and says that they neither killed him nor crucified him, rather he was raised up to God. There is a verse in the Quran, which implies that Jesus will come back and all the Christians and Jews believe in him before he dies. This is also supported by authentic sayings of the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) The last prophet of God, Muhammad, was born in Arabia in the sixth century C.E. Up to the age of forty, people of Makkah knew him only as a man of excellent character and cultured manners and called him AL-AMEEN (the trustworthy). He also did not know that he was soon to made a prophet and receiver of revelation from God. He called the idolaters of Makkah to worship the only one God and accept him as His prophet. The revelation that he received was preserved in his life-time in the memory of his companions and was also recorded in pieces of palm leaves, leather etc... Thus the Quran that is found today is the same that was revealed to him; not a syllable of it has been altered as God Himself has guaranteed its preservation. ( Full Answer )
