QUR’AN CONFIRMS MUHAMMAD CANNOT BE A PROPHET OF THE TRUE GOD

QUR’AN CONFIRMS MUHAMMAD CANNOT BE A PROPHET OF THE TRUE GOD

The lives of more than a billion Muslims are at stake because of their erroneous believe that Muhammad is a true prophet of God. It may come as a shocking surprise for Muslims to learn that both the Holy Bible and the Qur’an disqualifies Muhammad as a prophet of the true God. Vital evidences will be provided in this article to show as to why according to the Qur’an itself, he simply cannot be a prophet of the true God. Evidences in the Qur’an and the Hadith reveal not only his conformity with the numerous customs of the pagans but also his conformity with their form of worship. A prophet of the God of Abraham, he is not. Consider now the evidences.

Centuries before the Qur’an came into existence, the Holy Bible speaks of the covenant of Jehovah with Abraham, Isaac and Jacob:

Exodus 2:24-25: “…and God remembered his covenant with Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. So God looked on the sons of Israel and God took notice.”

2 Kings 13:23:“But Jehovah was gracious unto them and had compassion upon them and turned to them because of his covenant with Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.”

Psalms 105:7-10: “He is Jehovah our God. His judgement are in all the earth. He has remembered his covenant even forever, the word which he commanded to a thousand generations, the covenant which he concluded with Abraham, And his sworn statement to Isaac, And which statement he kept standing as a statue even to Jacob, As an everlasting covenant to Israel.”

In harmony with the above stated Covenant, Surah 29:27 affirms that the Prophethood will remain in the lineage of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. Given below are four different translations:

Surah 29:27: And (as for Abraham), We bestowed upon him Isaac and (Isaac’s son) Jacob, and caused prophethood and revelation to continue among his offspring. (Asad)

And We bestowed on him Isaac and Jacob, and We established the prophethood and the Scripture among his seed. (Pickthall)

And We granted him Ishaq and Yaqoub, and caused the prophethood and the book to remain in his seed. (Shakir)

And We bestowed Ishaq and Yaqub to him, and keptthe Prophethood and the Book among his descendants. (Faridul Haque)

Surah 29:27 mentions that Prophethood and Scriptures came uniquely through the seed of Isaac and Jacob. It speaks of the prophetic office as having been entrusted to Isaac and Jacob and their descendants. And Allah also declared in the above Qur’anic verse, that the prophethood would “remain” in the lineage of Isaac and Jacob. In other words, anyone claiming to be a prophet of God must be born in the Prophetic Race.

If Muhammad is a descendant of Ishmael, then he cannot be a descendant of Isaac at the same time, given the fact that Ishmael and Isaac are half-brothers. Thus, it is evident that Muhammad is not a descendant of Isaac. As Muhammad was neither a Jew nor a descendent of Isaac and Jacob, this automatically disqualifies him as a prophet of God.

Since the Qur’an states that prophethood belongs exclusively to the lineage of Isaac and Jacob, we must then ask whether Muhammad was born in the line of the prophets. In other words, was he born in the Prophetic Race? Muslims scholars claim that Muhammad was a descendant of Ishmael. But Ishmael is entirely excluded in the prophetical line in Surah 29:27. If Allah intends to include Ishmael, his name would be placed before Isaac, as he was older than Isaac by fourteen years. But as it can be noted, Surah 29:27 completely omits any reference to Ishmael, raising the question as to why he was totally ignored if he was as important as Muslims claim him to be. Thus, the Qur’an clearly teaches that the prophetic line came through Isaac – not Ishmael. 

If Muhammad is a descendant of Ishmael, then he cannot be a descendant of Isaac at the same time, given the fact that Ishmael and Isaac are half-brothers. Thus, it is evident that Muhammad is not a descendant of Isaac. As Muhammad was neither a Jew nor a descendent of Isaac and Jacob, this automatically disqualifies him as a prophet of God.

Since according to both the Bible and the Qur’an, all the true prophets came in the line of Abraham through Isaac, then Muhammad cannot be a prophet of the true God. In fact, this is in harmony with the fulfillment of the promise to Abraham in Genesis 17:21.

Genesis 17:21: “However, my covenant I shall establish with Isaac, whom Sarah will bear to you at this appointed time next year.”

If Ishmael rather than Isaac was chosen or included in the origin of the prophets, why was there only one alleged prophet from the line of Ishmael? Guess who that lone prophet was? Yes, it was Muhammad – a non-Israelite. The rest – Moses, Samuel, Nathan, Elijah, Elisha, Hosea, Amos, Isaiah, Jonah, Joel, Jesus and many others – were all Israelites. All these prophets were descendents of Abraham through Isaac and Jacob just as it is sworn in Surah 29:27. Why did all these prophets come from the line of Isaac, with the exception of Muhammad who descended from Ishmael? Why was Ishmael’s name left out at the most significant moment when the Qur’an revealed the lineage of the prophethood? Did not Allah know that his greatest prophet would be born through the lineage of Ishmael?

The following Surahs also concur with Surah 29:27. 

Surah 45:16: And verily We gave the Children of Israel the Scripture and the Commandand the Prophethood, and provided them with good things and favoured them above all peoples. (Pickthall)

Surah 2:47: “O Children of Israel! Remember My favour wherewith I favoured you and how I preferred you to (all) creatures.” (Pickthall)  

Further evidences in the Qur’an alluding to the fact that the prophethood belongs solely to the line of Isaac and Jacob are provided below: 

Surah 19:49: So, when he had withdrawn from them and that which they were worshipping beside Allah. We gave him Isaac and Jacob. Each of them We made a Prophet. (Pickthall)

Surah 21:72-73: And We bestowed upon him Isaac, and Jacob as a grandson. Each of them We made righteous. And We made them chiefs who guide by Our command, and We inspired in them the doing of good deeds and the right establishment of worship and the giving of alms and they were worshippers of Us (alone). (Pickthall)

Once again, we can note that Ishmael is not mention in the above Qur’anic verses, whereas recognition is given to both Isaac and Jacob. Why did not Allah include Ishmael in these verses since Muslims claim that he is also a prophet of Allah? The Qur’an states that God gave Abraham a son and a grandson to live with him and made them both prophets. These two are the only ones mentioned as God’s gift to Abraham. While the Qur’an states that the Prophethood will come from Abraham, at the same instant, it consistently states that it will be through Isaac and Jacob. Thus, they are the roots – the ancestry from which the race of the prophets sprang. Hence, as far as Allah and the Qur’an are concerned, the only true prophets are those who are the descendants of Isaac or Jacob. There is an account concerning Joseph in the Qur’an that may be appropriate to be included here. Notice again the exclusion of Ishmael.

Surah 12:38: “And I (Joseph) have followed the religion of my fathers,Abraham and Isaac and Jacob. It never was for us to attribute aught as partner to Allah. This is of the bounty of Allah unto us (the seed of Abraham) and unto mankind; but most men give not thanks.” (Pickthall)

The genealogy of Jesus going back all the way to Abraham is clearly recorded in the Holy Bible in Matthew 1:1-17:

The book of the history of Jesus Christ, son of David, son of Abraham: Abraham became father to Isaac; Isaac became father to Jacob; Jacob became father to Judah and his brothers; Judah became father to Perez and to Zerah by Tamar; Perez became father to Hezron; Hezron became father to Ram; Ram became father to Amminadab; Amminadab became father to Nahshon; Nahshon became father to Salmon; Salmon became father to Boaz by Rahab; Boaz became father to Obed by Ruth; Obed became father to Jesse; Jesse became father to David the king. David became father to Solomon by the wife of Uriah; Solomon became father to Rehoboam; Rehoboam became father to Abijah; Abijah became father to Asa; Asa became father to Jehoshaphat; Jehoshaphat became father to Jehoram; Jehoram became father to Uzziah; Uzziah became father to Jotham; Jotham became father to Ahaz; Ahaz became father to Hezekiah; Hezekiah became father to Manasseh; Manasseh became father to Amon; Amon became father to Josiah; Josiah became father to Jeconiah and to his brothers at the time of the deportation to Babylon. After the deportation to Babylon Jeconiah became father to Shealtiel; Shealtiel became father to Zerubbabel; Zerubabel became father to Abiud; Abiud became father to Eliakim; Eliakim became father to Azor; Azor became father to Zadok; Zadok became father to Achim; Achim became father to Eliud; Eliud became father to Eleazar; Eleazar became father to Matthan; Matthan became father to Jacob; Jacob became father to Joseph the husband of Mary, of whom Jesus was born, who is called Christ. All the generations, then, from Abraham until David were fourteen generations, and from David until the deportation to Babylon fourteen generations, and from the deportation to Babylon until the Christ fourteen generations.

Although Joseph is not the biological father of Jesus, Joseph, as the foster father of Jesus, certified the ancestry of Jesus from a legal perspective, whereas Mary his mother qualifies him from the biological position. Thus, Jesus was a descendant of Abraham both legally and biologically. While Jesus was clearly a descendant of Abraham through the lineage of Isaac and Jacob, Muhammad was a descendant of Ishmael. Islam destroys its credibility by admitting that Muhammad did not come from the lineage of Isaac and Jacob – the Prophetic Race. Moreover, where is the genealogy of Muhammad in the Qur’an to link him to the religion of Abraham?

All true prophets of God must establish who they are. Every single one of the true prophets who were descendants of Isaac and Jacob came from families who were already worshippers of the true God. They all worshipped the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. As for Muhammad, his parents were Arab pagans and so were his grandparents. Additionally, Muhammad himself was a pagan until the time of his alleged “calling as a prophet” by Allah.

Is it not strange that after choosing every single one of His prophets from families who were already true believers, God would now choose a pagan worshipper who came from a pagan family as his prophet? We do not think so. That is why it should not surprise us to find many pagan rituals in the religion of Islam. Muhammad incorporated them into the religion of Allah. Therefore, to accept Islam is to accept paganism and its lone stone-kissing prophet. And as the Qur’an itself testifies clearly in Surah 29:27, Muhammad cannot be a prophet of the true God.

Galatians 4:22-28: It is written that Abraham acquired two sons, one by the slave woman and one by the free woman; but the one by the slave woman was actually born in the manner of flesh, the other by the free woman through a promise…Now we, brothers, are children belonging to the promise the same as Isaac was.

WHAT IS THE “SEAL OF THE PROPHETS”?

The Qur’an says that Muhammad is the “Seal of the Prophets” in the following verse:

Surah 33:40: “Muhammad is not the father of any man among you, but he is the messenger of Allah and the Seal of the Prophets.” (Pickthall)

Muslims use this verse to prove that Muhammad was the last in a series of prophets and that he was the culmination of the prophethood. However, the Hadith literature makes it very clear that when the Qur’an refers to the “Seal of the Prophets” being upon Muhammad, it refers to a large mole on his back.

It is simply beyond reason how the superstitious belief that people with notable physical abnormalities were chosen by God can be used as one of the evidences to validate Muhammad as the “Seal of the Prophets.” This proves that Islam came out of paganism and not from the true Abrahamic faith. Islam’s own references provide us with evidences of this fact.

Sahih Bukhari, Volume 1, Book 4, Number 189:

Narrated By As Saib bin Yazid: My aunt took me to the Prophet and said, “O Allah’s Apostle! This son of my sister has got a disease in his legs.” So he passed his hands on my head and prayed for Allah’s blessings for me; then he performed ablution and I drank from the remaining water. I stood behind him and saw the seal of Prophethood between his shoulders, and it was like the “Zir-al-Hijla” (means the button of a small tent, but some said ‘egg of a partridge.’ etc.)

Sahih Bukhari, Volume 7, Book 70, Number 574:

Narrated By As-Sa’ib: My aunt took me to Allah’s Apostle and said, “O Allah’s Apostle! My nephew is- ill.” The Prophet touched my head with his hand and invoked Allah to bless me. He then performed ablution and I drank of the remaining water of his ablution and then stood behind his back and saw “Khatam An-Nubuwwa” (The Seal of Prophethood) between his shoulders like a button of a tent.

After Sahih Bukhari, the second greatest work on the Hadith is Sahih Muslim. It records the following:

THE FACT PERTAINING TO THE SEAL OF HIS PROPHETHOOD, ITS CHARACTERISTIC FEATURE, AND ITS LOCATION ON HIS BODY

Sahih Muslim, Book 30, Number 5790:

Jabir b. Samura reported: I saw the seal on his back as if it were a pigeon’s egg.

Sahih Muslim, Book 30, Number 5793:

Abdullah b. Sarjis reported: I saw Allah’s Apostle (may peace be upon him) and ate with him bread and meat, or he said Tharid (bread soaked in soup). I said to him: Did Allah’s Apostle (may peace be upon him) seek forgiveness for you? He said: Yes, and for you, and he then recited this verse: “Ask forgiveness for thy sin and for the believing men and believing women” (xlvii. 19). I then went after him and saw the Seal of Prophethood between his shoulders on the left side of his shoulder having spots on it like moles.

Sunan of Abu Dawud, Book 32, Number 4071:

Narrated Qurrah ibn Iyas al-Muzani: “I came to the Apostle of Allah (pbuh) with a company of Muzaynah and we swore allegiance to him. The buttons of his shirt were open. I swore allegiance to him and I put my hand inside the collar of his shirt and felt the seal…”

Tarikh (History of) al-Tabari

“….When Bahira saw this, he descended from his cell and sent the caravan a message inviting them all…. Finally he looked at Muhammad’s back, and saw the seal of prophethood between his shoulders….He replied….“I also recognize him by the seal of prophethood which is below the cartilage of his shoulders and which is like an apple.” (The History of al-Tabari: Muhammad at Mecca, translated and annotated by W. Montgomery Watt and M. V. McDonald, Volume VI, pp. 45, 46)

This same lying monk (Bahira) also said that he had seen the stones and the trees prostrating to Muhammad as he walked by. Muslims believe these incredible tales without wondering why many of the Arabs refused to accept Muhammad when he called them to Islam. Eventually, it was not the stones or the trees or the mole but the sword of Islam that converted these pagan Arabs.

Ibn Sa’d (A.H. 168-230), Kitab al-Tabaqat al-Kabir:

‘Abd Allah Ibn Ja’far al-Raqqi informed us on the authority of ‘Ubayd Allah Ibn ‘Amr, he on the authority of ‘Abd al-Malik Ibn ‘Umayr, he on the authority of Iyad Ibn Laqit, he on the authority of Abu Rimthah; he said: I went to the Prophet, may Allah bless him, and a son of mine was with me. Then I said: O my son! This is the Prophet of Allah. When he (son) saw him, he began to tremble, out of reverence. When I arrived, I said, “O Apostle of Allah! I am a physician and belong to the family of physicians. My father was a noted physician during the Jahiliyyah (pre-Muhammad times) days; we are famous as physicians. So permit me (to treat) what is between your shoulders. If it is a wound, I shall operate on it and Allah will cure His Prophet.” Thereupon he said: There is no physician for it except Allah. It was like the egg of a dove.(Translated by S.M. Haq & H.K. Ghazanfar, Kitab Bhavan, New Delhi, India, 1972, Vol I (part 2), p. 503-506.)

The “Seal of Prophets” turns out to be a physical deformity that needed medical treatment. However, the vast majority of Muhammad’s uneducated and superstitious followers believed it was a miraculous Seal of Muhammad’s prophethood. Muhammad took advantage of their ignorance and did not allow it to be removed.

Imagine, this large mole is the physical proof that Islam provides to claim that Muhammad was the Seal of the Prophets. It is simply beyond logic how this is supposed to be one of the proofs that is used by Muslims to convince people of Muhammad’s prophethood. Such ideas that give significance to moles can be found in the teachings of many pagan religions. Pagan teachings consider moles as significations of fate and reflections of the personality of an individual. They also believe that moles reveal the nature and destiny of a person.

Moloesophy is a branch of astrology that deals with the study of moles. And the science of astrology is a science of the occult. Such beliefs are detestable to the true God and they are certainly not a part of his divine teachings. 

Deuteronomy18:10: “There should not be found in you…. anyone who looks for omens.” To look for omens means to look for signs – such as a mole – that portend good or evil. 

To look for omens means to look for signs – such as a mole – that portend good or evil. 

DID MUHAMMAD DISPLAY THE QUALITIES OF A PROPHET?  

THE MURDER OF A PREGNANT MOTHER 

Sunan Abu-Dawud Book 38, Hadith Number 4348:

Narrated Abdullah Ibn Abbas: A blind man had a slave-mother who used to abuse the Prophet and disparage him. He forbade her but she did not stop. He rebuked her but she did not give up her habit. One night she began to slander the Prophet and abuse him. So he took a dagger, placed it on her belly, pressed it, and killed her. A child who came between her legs was smeared with the blood that was there. When the morning came, the Prophet was informed about it.

He assembled the people and said: I adjure by Allah the man who has done this action and I adjure him by my right to him that he should stand up. Jumping over the necks of the people and trembling the man stood up. He sat before the Prophet and said: Apostle of Allah! I am her master; she used to abuse you and disparage you. I forbade her, but she did not stop, and I rebuked her, but she did not abandon her habit. I have two sons like pearls from her, and she was my companion. Last night she began to abuse and disparage you. So I took a dagger, put it on her belly and pressed it till I killed her. Thereupon the Prophet said: Oh be witness, no retaliation is payable for her blood.

What cruelty! What injustice! Muhammad approved a man killing a pregnant mother and her unborn child just because he said that she insulted the Prophet. What an evil man. He unjustly approved the murder of a pregnant woman just for insulting him. Will a true prophet of God condone the cold-blooded murder of a mother and her child? Does not the murder of an innocent child matter to him? A double murder has been committed and Muhammad did not even bother to investigate to ascertain whether this murderer was lying to escape punishment.

See how Jesus responded under an even more serious act of wrong committed against him. See how he reacted towards those who came to arrest him, which resulted in his death by execution. Compare now the malicious hatred of Muhammad with the contrasting quality of outstanding love displayed by Jesus. When a great crowd with swords and clubs from the chief priests came to arrest Jesus, one of the disciples of Jesus tried to defend him. Let us follow the narration of this account in the Bible: 

Matthew 26:51: With that,one of the companions of Jesus drew out his sword and struck the slave of the high priest and took off his ear.

How did Jesus react?

Matthew 26:52-53:Then Jesus said to him: “Return your sword to its place, for all those who take the sword will die by the sword. Do you think that I cannot call on to my Father to supply me at this moment more than twelve legions of angels?

Jesus did not condone the violent action of his disciple just because it was done to protect him. In fact, he rebuked the disciple for his rash action. More than that, he lovingly healed the injured ear of the very man who came with those who wanted to arrest him. Such is the love of Jesus Christ. Think, how strongly Jesus would have reacted, if his disciple had instead killed that man. If Jesus did not even approve the injuring of that man, would he condone the murdering of him? Never!

Luke 22:51: “And he touched the man’s ear and healed him”.

These are the hallmarks of a true Prophet of God. Christians are truly blessed for having Jesus as their spiritual leader. One who, by his very example, taught them the surpassing way of love.
