Exposing Islam/Muslims (Part 3)
By: Brian A. Yeager
Like all false religious bodies, there is a man or woman who is responsible for founding man-made religions. In the case of the religion known as Islam, that founding individual is their so-called prophet, Muhammad. We have already exposed the God of Islam and have proven the Scriptures to be the real word of God rather than the Quran. It is also important to expose the false prophet that founded Islam. We’ll begin with the Islamic history of their prophet, Muhammad.
What They Say About Muhammad
“The Prophet (s.a.w.a.) is born. Muhammad (s.a.w.a.) was born in such a family on Friday, the 17th Rabi'-ul-Awwal, 1st year of 'Amul-Fil (corresponding to 570 C.E.) to bring the Message of God to the world. In Sunni circles, 12th Rabi'-ul-Awwal is more famous. Thus, the prayer of Ibrahim while constructing the Ka'bah was granted: Lord! And raise a Messenger from among them who shall recite to them Thine verses, and teach them the Book and the wisdom, and purify them, indeed Thou art the Mighty, the Wise (Qur'an, 2:129). And the tidings of Christ came true:- O Children of Israel! Surely, I am the messenger of Allah to you, verifying that which is before me of the Torah and giving the good news of a Messenger who will come after me whose name will be Ahmed (Qur'an, 61:6)” (Chapter four at this website: http://www.al-islam.org/lifeprophet/).
“The period of waiting had come to a close. His forty years of life had varied experiences, and from the world's point of view, he had developed a maturity of mind and judgement, although in reality he was the embodiment of perfection from the very beginning. He has said: "I was a prophet when Adam was between water and clay." His heart was overflowing with profound compassion for mankind and a pressing urge to eradicate wrong beliefs, social evils, cruelty and injustice. The moment had arrived when he was to be allowed to declare his prophethood. One day, when he was in the cave of Hira, Jibril (Gabriel) came to him and conveyed to him the following message of Allah: ‘Read in the name of thy Lord Who created, created man from a clot (of congealed blood): Read and thy Lord is most Bountiful, no taught with the pen, taught man that which he knew not’. (Qur'an, 96:1-5), These were the first ayats to be revealed, and the date was the 27th of Rajab, 40th year of elephant (610 C.E.). The flow of the Divine message which continued for the next twenty-three years had begun, and the Prophet had arisen to proclaim the Unity of God and the Unity of Mankind, to demolish the edifice of superstition, ignorance, and disbelief, to set up a noble conception of life, and to lead mankind to the light of faith and celestial bliss” (Chapter five at this website: http://www.al-islam.org/lifeprophet/).
The Message Of God Had Already Been Brought To The World
From the first quote above, we see that Muslims believe a message needed brought to the world. They believe that Muhammad had to be born to bring that message to the world. However, the Scriptures show us that the message of God has already been preached in the entire world nearly five hundred years earlier (Colossians 1:5-6; 23). Peter, being led by the Spirit (Acts 4:8), said: “Be it known unto you all, and to all the people of Israel, that by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom ye crucified, whom God raised from the dead, even by him doth this man stand here before you whole. This is the stone which was set at nought of you builders, which is become the head of the corner. Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved” (Acts 4:10-12). Jesus, not Muhammad, is the spokesman of God and source of salvation. Still, as seen in the quote earlier in this article, Muslims claim that Jesus foretold of Muhammad.
Jesus Sure Did Foretell Of Muhammad!
“Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves” (Matthew 7:15). The time wherein God raised up prophets to spearhead movements of change ended with Christ and those whom Christ empowered through the Holy Spirit (Hebrews 1:1-2, John 16:7-14, and Ephesians 3:1-5). Yet, Muslims claim that Muhammad was from the days of Adam. That is trying to make Muhammad like Jesus (cf. John 8:56-58). Blasphemy! Then they argue Muhammad saw an angel.
What About Muhammad’s Supposed Revelation From Gabriel?
I would not get into an argument with a Muslim, or any other, as to whether or not Muhammad had spoken with an angel. What I would say is very simple. If Muhammad had spoken to an angel and then revealed what had been spoken; then Muhammad, those following him, and the message that he proclaimed are all accursed (Galatians 1:6-12 and Revelation 22:18-19).
What Moses Said About THE Prophet Being Of Israel
Muhammad is Arabic, born in the city of Mecca (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Muhammad). Moses, plainly declared that the prophet of God is Jewish: “The LORD thy God will raise up unto thee a Prophet from the midst of thee, of thy brethren, like unto me; unto him ye shall hearken; According to all that thou desiredst of the LORD thy God in Horeb in the day of the assembly, saying, Let me not hear again the voice of the LORD my God, neither let me see this great fire any more, that I die not. And the LORD said unto me, They have well spoken that which they have spoken. I will raise them up a Prophet from among their brethren, like unto thee, and will put my words in his mouth; and he shall speak unto them all that I shall command him” (Deuteronomy 18:15-18). The brethren of Abraham, Moses, etc. were not Arabic, but Hebrews [Jews] (Genesis 14:13, Exodus 2:5-10, Exodus 3:18, and Deuteronomy 15:12). Jesus, not Muhammad, was a Jew (John 4:7-9). Peter shows us that Moses was talking about Jesus (Acts 3:19-26).
Clearly, Muhammad was a false prophet. His influence continues to cause millions to err and face eternal damnation. Our role should be to help those following this false religion to cease from hearing the false teachings of Muhammad (Proverbs 19:27). Muslims will not be excused because of following a false prophet (Jeremiah 23:13; 32). Christ is the only way to the Father (John 14:6). Thus, we will continue our series on Islam so that we can help others see the fallacy of this growing, false religion.
