Is Quran the Word of
God? Part 6
Last week we saw that Muhammad was getting his revelations. He was bewitched and powerful magic worked on him. He was under the influence of spell and witchcraft. Moreover his encounter with a so called angel who identified himself as Gabriel made him so distressed that many a times Muhammad tried to kill himself.
After all who this angel was who identified himself as angel Gabriel?
A distressing/suicidal/murdering spirit?:
In Bible we read about Saul that he was once filled with the Spirit of God but when he sinned against God and disobeyed Him the Spirit of God left him and a distressing spirit came and tormented him" (1 Sam 16:14-23). Because of this evil spirit Saul was greatly troubled in his heart. Days, months and years passed by and a day came in his life when he reached to the point where God did not respond to him and it made him really sick. So he turned to medium to know his future. Finally Saul died a tragic death by killing himself.
Bible also tells us that when that distressing spirit came upon Saul he tried to kill David as we read in 1 Sam 19:9-10, "Now the distressing spirit from the LORD came upon Saul as he sat in his house with his spear in his hand. And David was playing music with his hand. Then Saul sought to pin David to the wall with the spear, but he slipped away from Saul's presence; and he drove the spear into the wall. So David fled and escaped that night."
1 Sam 22nd chapter tells us that Saul killed the priests of the Lord. What was their crime? Ahimelech the Priest inquired of the LORD for him, gave him provisions, and gave him the sword of Goliath the Philistine, (1 Sam 22:10).
You can see similarities in Muhammad's inspiration. As I wrote last week and showed how Muhammad was completely distressed after having encounter with an angel at the cave. Muhammad was suicidal. Muhammad killed many innocent people among whom Jews were the main.
Hadith and Quran both says that the angel who identified as angel Gabriel hated Jews. In Hadith we read, "The Prophet said, "Just now Gabriel has informed me about that." 'Abdullah said, "Gabriel?" The Prophet said, "Yes." 'Abdullah said, "He, among the angels is the enemy of the Jews."
Hadith tells us that angel Gabriel visited Muhammad and commanded to kill men of Bani Quraiza. We read in Hadiths that Muhammad and his friends killed those Jews and distributed their women, children and properties among themselves. Bani Quraiza was a Jewish tribe. Here are the Hadith I am quoting.
Volume 5, Book 59, Number 362: Narrated
Volume 5, Book 59, Number 443: Narrated
Volume 5, Book 59, Number 449: Narrated
Volume 5, Book 59, Number 725: Narrated Urwa bin Az-Zubair:
One another Hadith says, "curse be on the Jews and the Christians, as they took the graves of their prophets as (places of worship)".
All these things show that Muhammad was speaking to an angel who influenced him to commit all kinds of evil things which are abomination in the sight of God.
