2. According to Islam: Mohammedis thelastandgreatestof theProphets . According to IslamJesusis justa prophet . So according to Islam: Mohammed Is greater thanJesus Islam makes the pointthat they believe in Jesus,but not as the son of God,only has one of 25 prophets named in the Qur'an. So, as we look at the life of Mohammed it is fair to compare him to Jesus. Who was Mohammed ? What was he like ? What did he do ? 3.
Mohammed the last and greatest of the prophets.
4. Bukhari: V4 B52 N220 AllahsApostle said, I have been sentwiththe shortest expressionsbearingthe widest meanings , andI have been madevictorious with terror .While I was sleeping, the keys tothe treasures of the worldwere brought to me andput in my hand . Mohammed the last and greatest of the prophets. Quran 33: 56 - 57Yusuf Ali Allah and His angels send blessings on the Prophet : O ye that believe!Send ye blessings on him , andsalute him with all respect . Those who annoy Allah and His Messenger-Allah has cursed themin this World and in the Hereafter, and has prepared for them ahumiliating Punishment . 5. Sahih Bukhari V6, B60, N236:Allahs Apostle said, " I will be the chief of all the people on the Day of Resurrection. Allah will gather all the human beings on one plain to make them all-hear his voice and to see all of them.The sun will come so close to the people that they will suffer such distress and trouble as they will not be able to bear or stand. Some people will say to some others,'Go to Adam .' So they will go to Adam and say to him. intercede for us with your Lord . Don't you see in what state we are? Mohammed the chief of all the people. 6. Sahih Bukhari V6, B60, N236:Adam will say , 'Today my Lord has become angry as He has never become before, nor will ever become thereafter. He forbade me (to eat of the fruit of) the tree, butI disobeyed Him .Myself !Myself !Myself ! ( has more need for intercession ).Go to someone else;go toNoah .He [ Noah ]will say .' Myself !Myself !Myself !Go tosomeone else; go toAbraham .'He [ Abraham ]will sayto them, Myself !Myself !Myself !Go tosomeone else; go toMoses .' Moses will say , Myself !Myself !Myself !Go tosomeone else; go toJesus.Jesus will say . ' Myself !Myself !Myself !Go tosomeone else; go toMuhammad .'Mohammed greater than Adam, Abraham, Moses, and Jesus. 7. Quran Surah 24: v51 The only responseof the ( true )Believers when summonedtoAllah and His Messengerin order to judge between them, is no other than this:they say, We hear and we obey .Such are successful. Those whoobey Allah and His Messenger , fear Allah and do right, such are the victorious.Whoeverobeys Allah and His Messengerfears Allah and keeps his duty. Mohammed is the only one who ever spoke for Allah.All other revelations from God were claimed to be either lost or corrupted. Whatever he said, Allah said. Bukhari:V9 B89 N251 Allahs Apostle said, Whoeverobeys me ,obeys Allah , andwhoeverdisobeys me ,Disobeys Allah , andwhoeverobeys the ruler I appoint ,obeys me , andwhoeverdisobeys him ,disobeys me . 8.

Ishaq:90 Jewish rabbis ,Christian monks , andArab soothsayer s had spoken about theApostle of Allah before his mission when his time drew near. Therabbisandmonksfoundhis descriptionin theirscriptures .TheArab occultistshad been visited bysatansfrom thejinnwith reports which they had secretlyoverheard before they were prevented from hearing by being pelted with stars. It has always been acontested point, just where Mohammed and his description appears in the Jewish and Christian scriptures. 11. Tabari VI:15 After the death of his uncle al-Muttalib,AbdulMuttalib[Mohammeds Grandfather] took over the privilege of watering and feeding the pilgrims which the sons of Abd Manaf had held before him . He was honored and was a man of great importance, for not one was his equal. Ishaq:62 Sleeping on the graves of Hagar and Ishmael he was orderedin a vision to dig Zamzam . Allahu Akbar, he shouted. This is the well of our father Ishmael. Tabari VI:15 He brought out what was buried there, namely, two golden gazelles,swords and coats of mail. He made the swords into a door for the Kaaba. Ishaq:66/Tabari VI:2 It is alleged, and Allahonly knows the truth, thatAbdul Muttalib[Mohammeds Grandfather]encountered opposition when he was digging Zamzam. He vowed that if given ten sons,to make his labor less arduous and to protect him,he would sacrifice one of them to Allah at the Kaaba . Ishaq:67 When Abdul Muttalib[Mohammeds Grandfather]had ten sons[the youngest was to be Mohammeds Father] grown to maturity and he knew that they would protect him, he told them of his vow, and called on them to keep faith with Allah in this matter. They expressed their obedience, and asked what they should do. He replied,Let every one of you take an arrow, write his name on it, and bring it to me.They did this, and he went into the presence of Hubal in the interior of the Kaaba . Hubal was the greatest of the idols of Quraysh in Mecca. 12. Tabari VI:2 By Allah! Youshall never sacrifice him but you must get an excuse for not doing so. There is a sorceress who has a familiar spirit; ask her, and you will know what to do.If she commands you to sacrifice him, you will sacrifice him, and if she commands you to do something which offers relief to you and to him, you can accept it. So they went to Medina where they discovered that the sorceress had moved to Khaybar. They rode until they reached her.She said, Retire from me until my familiar spirit visits me and I can ask him . Abdul Muttalib[Mohammeds Grandfather]stood and prayed to Allah....On the following day they went back. She said, Yes! News has come to me. How much is the blood-money among you? They replied, Ten camels. She said, Bring forward the young man and ten camels, and cast arrows. If they fall against the boy, add camels until your Lord is satisfied. Tabari VI:5 They returned to Mecca when theyhad all agreed on the matter, Abdul Muttalib stood and prayed to Allah inside the Kaaba they added ten camels, making twenty.With Muttalib standing and praying to Allah they went on this way ten times.Each time the arrows fell against Abdallah.[Mohammeds Father] So Muttalib took Abdallah by the hand.He grabbed a large knife. , to sacrifice Abdullah . [Abdul Mattalibopted for the custodian to cast the arrows one more time Finally the arrows fell against the camels .] Your Lord is satisfied at last. The camels were slaughtered and left there. No man or wild beast was turned back from eating them. 13. 14. Pre-Prophetic Era Persecuted Prophet Warrior Prophet Caravan Trader for Khadija: A wealthy & respected Merchant.

Sahih Muslim B:001, N:0311:Anas b. Malik reported that Gabriel came to the Messengerof Allah while he was playing with his playmates.He took hold of himandlay him prostrateon the ground andtore open his breastandtook out the heartfrom it and thenextracted a blood-clotout of it and said:That was the part of Satan in thee .And then hewashed it with the water of Zamzamin a golden basin and then it was joined together and restored to it place.The boys came running to his mother, i. e. his nurse, and said: Verily Muhammad has been murdered.They all rushed toward him (and found him all right) His color was changed, Anas said. I myself saw the marks of needle on his breast. 16. Years later it happened again Sahih Bukhari Volume 1, Book 8, Number 345:Narrated Abu Dhar:Allah's Apostle said," While I was at Meccathe roof of my house was opened andGabriel descended ,opened my chest , andwashed it with Zam-zam water .Thenhe brought agolden tray full of wisdomandfaithand havingpoured its contents into my chest , he closed it. 17. 18.
