Is Quran the Word
of God? Part 5
Last week we saw that Holy Spirit is none other than the Spirit of the almighty God and Muhammad and Angel Gabriel cannot be the Holy Spirit. Today we are going to see whether Quran is the word of God or not?
Bible tells us that all the prophets were filled with the Holy Spirit and they got revelation from God. But Hadith tells us that Muhammad was bewitched and had been affected by magic or powerful spell.
1. From whom Muhammad got his revelations:
Volume 4, Book 54, Number 490:
We read the same thing in Volume 8, Book 75, Number 400 where Aisha Muhammad's wife says that Allah's Apostle was affected by magic, so much that he used to think that he had done something which in fact. She also said Allah's Apostle was bewitched... (See Hadith No. 658, Vol. 7)
Hadith also tells us that Muhammad every night prayed a prayer that his devil should be driven away from him in
Book 41, Number 5036:
When Muhammad started getting revelations he became suicidal and thought to kill himself. A great fear came in his heart and he was not even sure what he was getting and from whom?
Hadith tells us in Volume 9, Book
87, Number 111: Narrated 'Aisha:
Then Allah's Apostle returned with the Inspiration, his neck muscles twitching with terror till he entered upon Khadija and said, "Cover me! Cover me!" They covered him till his fear was over and then he said, "O Khadija, what is wrong with me?" Then he told her everything that had happened and said, 'I fear that something may happen to me." Khadija said, 'Never! But have the glad tidings, for by Allah, Allah will never disgrace you as you keep good reactions with your Kith and kin, speak the truth, help the poor and the destitute, serve your guest generously and assist the deserving, calamity-afflicted ones."
Further we read that Khadija accompanied him to her cousin Waraqa and Muhammad told his story to him. Waraqa told him that it is from angel Gabriel who keeps the secret. You can see that Muhammad wasn't sure about his revelation from where he was getting this. Only Khadijah and Waraqa were giving him clues that it may be this and it may be that. Further we read that Muhammad became so disturbed that he tried to kill himself. But every time when Muhammad tried to kill himself the angel who was identified as Gabriel appear before him and said, "O Muhammad! You are indeed Allah's Apostle in truth".
All these Hadith writings suggest that Muhammad was not getting his revelations from God but from devil. If we read the Bible we can understand that none of the Bible prophets felt suicidal or were in deep distress after meeting God ore being in the presence of God. They enjoyed the presence of God everyday in their lives. David says in Psa 16:11, "You will show me the path of life; In Your presence is fullness of joy; At Your right hand are pleasures forevermore." Moses enjoyed the presence of God and every time he came out of the presence of God, his face was shining with the glory of God not with fear or depression.
If Muhammad had seen the God of the Bible or met the real angel Gabriel, he would have been filled with the peace of God. Bible tells us about the God of the Bible as "God of peace". God gives His perfect peace to a person. He does not keep a person in delusion, confusion or in distress.
