Hard Questions About the Bible

About Islam

Does the existence of other religions prove that the Bible is not true?  Let’s look at Islam.  I’ll compare and contrast later.

The following information is from Wikipedia.org

Muhammad (570-632 AD), was a trader, later becoming a religious, political and military leader.  Muslims do not view Muhammad as the creator of Islam, but instead regard him as the last messenger of God, through which the Qur’an was revealed.  Muslims view Muhammad as the restorer of the original monotheistic faith of Adam, Abraham, Moses, Jesus and other prophets.

Who is Muhammad?

Muhammad was born in Makkah in the year 570, at a time when Christianity was not yet fully established in Europe.  Muhammad was of a deeply religious nature, and had long detested the decadence of his society.  It became his habit to meditate from time to time in the Cave of Hira.

How did Muhammad become a prophet and messenger of God?

At the age of 40, while engaged in a meditative retreat, Muhammad received his first revelation from God through the Angel Gabriel.  This revelation, which continued for twenty three years, is known as the Quran.

Do Islam and Christianity have different origins?

No. Together with Judaism, they go back to the prophet and patriarch Abraham, and their three prophets are directly descended from his sons, Muhammad from the elder son Ishmael, and Moses and Jesus from the younger son Isaac.
