Muhammad’s Claim to Prophethood
(Part 1 of 3):
Proofs of his Prophethood
Divine facilitation is proportionate to human need. God makes acquisition
easier as the need of humans increase. Air, water, and sunlight are necessary
for human survival, and thus God has granted their acquisition to all
without hardship. The greatest human need is to know the Creator, and
thus, God has made it easy to know Him. The evidence for God, however,
differs in its nature. In its own way, everything in creation is evidence of
its Creator. Some evidence is so obvious that any lay person can immediately
‘see’ the Creator, for instance, the cycle of life and death. Others
‘see’ the handiwork of the Creator in the elegance of mathematical theorems,
universal constants of physics, and the development of the embryo:
“Behold! in the creation of the heavens and the earth, and the alternation
of night and day, - there are indeed signs for men of understanding.” (Quran
Like the existence of God, human beings need evidence to establish the
truth of prophets who spoke in His
name. Muhammad, like the prophets
before him, claimed to be God’s final
prophet to humanity. Naturally, the
evidence for his veracity is diverse
and numerous. Some are obvious,
while others are apparent only after
God says in the Quran:
“…Is it not enough (for them to know) that your Lord is witness unto everything?”
Divine witness by itself is sufficient without any other evidence. God’s
witness for Muhammad lies in:
(a) God’s past revelations to earlier prophets which prophesize Muhammad’s
( b ) God’s Acts: the miracles and ‘signs’ He gave to support Muhammad’s
How did it all begin in the early days of Islam? How were the first believers
convinced he was God’s prophet?
The first person to believe in the Prophethood of Muhammad was his own
wife, Khadija. When he returned home trembling out of fear after receiving
divine revelation, she was his solace:
“Never! By God, God will never disgrace you. You keep good relations
with your relatives, help the poor, serve your guests generously, and assist
those hit with calamities.” (Saheeh Al-Bukhari)
She saw in her husband a man God would not humiliate, because of his
virtues of honesty, justice, and helping the poor.
His closest friend, Abu Bakr who had known him all his life and was almost
the same age, believed the moment he heard the words, ‘I am God’s
Messenger’ without any additional confirmation other than the open book
of his friend’s life.
Another person who accepted his call on merely listening to it, was
“I used to think before Islam that people were in error and they were on
nothing. They worshipped idols. In the meantime, I heard of a man preaching
in Mecca; so I went to him…I asked him: ‘Who are you?’ He said: ‘I
am a Prophet.’ I again said: ‘Who is a Prophet?’ He said: ‘God sent me.’ I
said: ‘What did He send you with?’ He said: ‘I have been sent to join ties
of relationship, to break the idols, and to proclaim the unity of God so
nothing is associated with Him (in worship).’ I said: ‘Who is with you in
this?’ He said: ‘A free man and a slave (referring to Abu Bakr and Bilal, a
slave, who had embraced Islam by that time).’ I said: ‘I intend to follow
you.’” (Saheeh Muslim)
Dimad was a desert healer who specialized in mental illnesses. On his visit
to Mecca he heard the Meccans say that Muhammad (may the blessing and
mercy of God be upon him) was insane! Confident of his skills, he said to
himself, ‘If I were to come across this man, God might cure him at my
hand.’ Dimad met the Prophet and said: ‘Muhammad, I can protect (one)
who suffers from mental illness or under sorcery, and God cures one
whom He so desires at my hand. Do you desire to be cured?’ The Prophet
of God responded, starting with his usual introduction to his sermons:
1 Amr b. Abasa Sulami.
“Indeed, praise and gratitude is for God. We praise Him and ask for His
help. He who God guides, none can lead astray, and he who is led astray
cannot be guided. I bear witness no one deserves worship but God, He is
One, has no partners, and Muhammad is His Servant and Messenger.”
Dimad, stuck by the beauty of the words, asked him to repeat them, and
said, ‘I have heard the words of diviners, sorcerers, and poets, but I have
never heard such words, they reach the depth of the oceans. Give me your
hand so I may pledge my allegiance to you on Islam.’1
After Gabriel brought the first revelation to Prophet Muhammad, Khadija,
his wife, took him to visit her old cousin, Waraqa bin Nawfal, a biblical
scholar, to discuss the event. Waraqa recognized Muhammad from the
prophecies of the Bible and confirmed:
“This is the Keeper of Secrets (Angel Gabriel) who came to Moses.” (Saheeh
The face can be a window to the soul. Abdullah bin Salam, the chief rabbi
of Medina at the time, looked at the face of the Prophet when he arrived in
Medina, and exclaimed:
“The moment I looked at his face, I knew it was not the face of a liar!”
Many of those around the Prophet who did not accept Islam did not doubt
in his veracity, but refused to do so for other reasons. His uncle, Abu Talib,
aided him throughout his life, confessed to the truthfulness of Muhammad,
but refused to break off from the religion of his ancestors out of
shame and social status.

Muhammad’s Claim to Prophethood (Part
2 of 3):
Was he a liar?
A Logical Analysis of His Claim
As discussed earlier, Muhammad made the claim, ‘I am God’s Messenger.’
Either he was true in his claim or he was not. We will begin by the
assuming the latter and investigate all possibilities raised by skeptics of
past and present, discussing some of their misconceptions. Only if all other
possibilities are exhausted can one reasonably claim that the only possibility
left is that he was true in what he claimed. We will also look at what
the Quran has to say on the matter.
Was He a Liar?
Is it possible for a liar to claim for a period of 23 years with unwavering
certitude that he is a prophet like Abraham, Moses, and Jesus, that there
will be no more prophets after him, and that the scripture he has been sent
with will remain his lasting miracle till the end of time?
A liar will falter sometimes, perhaps with a friend, maybe with his family
members, somewhere he will make a mistake. His message, delivered over
two decades, will contradict itself sometimes. But what we see in reality is
that the scripture he brought declares freedom from internal inconsistencies,
his message remained consistent throughout his mission and even in
the midst of a battle, he proclaimed his Prophethood!1
His life story is preserved book open for everyone to read. Before Islam,
he was well-known to his own people to be trustworthy and reliable, an
honest man, a person of integrity, who did not lie.2 It was due to this reason
they named him “Al-Ameen”, or “The Trustworthy” He was strongly
opposed to lying and warned against it. Is it possible for him to tell a
consistent lie for 23 years, a lie so monstrous that it would make him a
social outcast, when he was never known to have lied even once about
anything? It’s simply against the psychology of liars.
If one was to ask why a person would make claim to Prophethood and lie,
their answer might be one of two:
1) Fame, Glory, wealth and status.
1 Saheeh Al-Bukhari
2 ‘Muhammad: His Life Based on the Earliest Sources’ by Martin Lings, p. 34.
2) Moral progress.
If we were to say that the Muhammad claimed prophethood for fame glory
and status, we would see that what actually occurred was the exact opposite.
Muhammad, before his claim to Prophethood, enjoyed a high status
in all aspects” He was of the most noble of tribes, of the most noble of
families, and was known for his truthfulness. After his claim, he became a
social outcast. For 13 years in Makkah, he and his followers faced excruciating
torture, which led to the death of some of his followers, ridicule,
sanctioning, and excommunication from society.
There were many other ways which a person could gain fame in the society
of that time, mainly from valor, and poetry. If Muhammad had made the
claim that he himself authored the Quran, as will be explained later, that
would have been enough for his name and poetry to be engraved in gold
and hung inside the Ka’bah for eternity, people from all over the world
hallowing him. Rather, he proclaimed that he was not the author of his
revelation, and that it was from the One high above, causing him to be
ridiculed in his time until ours.
The Prophet was the husband of a wealthy tradeswoman, and he enjoyed
the comforts of life available to him at his time. But after his claim of prophethood,
he became of the poorest of people. Days passed without stove
fire being lit in his house, and at one time, hunger drove him to the mosque
in hope of some provision. The leaders of Makkah in his time offered him
the riches of the world in order for him to leave his message. As a response
to their offer, he recited the verses of the Quran 41:1-38.11. The
Following are some of these verses:
“(As for) those who say: ‘Our Lord is God,’ and, further, stand straight
and steadfast, the angels descend upon them, saying: ‘Fear not, nor be
grieved, and receive good news of the garden which you were promised.
We are your guardians in this world's life and in the hereafter, and you
shall have therein what your souls desire and you shall have therein what
you ask for. A hospitable gift from one Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful!’
And who is better in speech than one who calls to God, works righteousness,
and says, ‘I am of those who have submitted in Islam?’ Nor can
goodness and evil be equal. Repel (evil) with what is better: Then will he
between whom and thee was hatred become as it were thy friend and intimate.
And no one will be granted such goodness except those who exer4
cise patience and self-restraint, - none but persons of the greatest good
fortune.” (Quran 41:30-35)
If one were to say that Muhammad lied and claimed prophethood in order
to bring moral and religious reform to a society ridden with ills, this argument
is futile in itself, for how can one bring moral reform through a lie.
If Muhammad was so keen to uphold and preach upright morals and worship
of One God, then could he have lied himself in doing so? If we say
that this is not possible, the only answer is that he was speaking the truth.
The only other possibility is that he was insane.
Muhammad’s Claim to Prophethood
(part 3 of 3):
Was He Insane, a Poet, or a Sorcerer?
Was He Insane?
Someone who has dealt with mentally ill knows people can be identified by their symptoms. Muhammad displayed no symptom of insanity at any time in his life No friend, wife, or family member suspected or abandoned him due to insanity. As for the effects of revelations on the Prophet, such as perspiration and the likes, it was due to the intensity of the Message which he had to bear and not due to any epileptic fit or instance of insanity...
Quite to the contrary, Muhammad preached for a long time and brought a Law unknown in its completeness and sophistication to ancient Arabs. If the prophet was insane, it would have been obvious to those around him at one point in a period of twenty three years. When in history did an insane man preach his message to worship One God for ten years, three of which he and his followers spent in exile, and eventually became the ruler of his lands? Which insane man has ever won the hearts and minds of people who met him and earned the respect of his adversaries?
More so, his closest companions, Abu Bakr and Umar were recognized for their abilities, nobility, skills, and finesse. They were willing to sacrifice anything for the religion he brought. On one occasion, Abu Bakr, brought all his material possessions to Muhammad, may the mercy and blessings of God be upon him, and when asked what he left for his family, responded, ‘I left for them God and His Messenger!’
Abu Bakr, a merchant by profession, after being elected the ruler of all of Arabs after Muhammad, spent a mere two dirham on himself and his family!
Umar became the ruler of Arabia after Abu Bakr and conquered Syria, Egypt, and subdued the Persian and Roman Empires. He was a man known for his scrupulous justice. How can someone suggest these people were following a mentally deranged individual?
God suggests: stand before God without bias or pre-conceived beliefs, and discuss it with another person or think about it yourself, this prophet has no madness, he is as stable today as you had known him for forty years.
“Say: ‘I counsel you one thing only: Be (ever conscious of) standing before God, whether you are in the company of others or alone; and then bethink yourselves (that) there is no madness in (this prophet,) your fellow-man: he is only a warner to you of suffering severe to come.’” (Quran 34:46)
The Meccans of old rejected his call out of tribal partisanship, and they were not truthful in their accusations of his insanity. Even today, many people refuse to accept Muhammad as a prophet simply because he was an Arab and self-gratify themselves by saying he must have been insane or worked for the devil. Their hatred for Arabs translates into their rejection of Muhammad, even though God says:
“Nay, but he (whom you call a mad poet) has brought the truth; and he confirms the truth of (what the earlier of God’s) message-bearers (have taught).” (Quran 37:37)
Although the pagan Arabs knew Muhammad all too well, but they still through accusations of insanity at him, for they considered his religion a sacrilege against the tradition of their forefathers.
“And when our verses are recited to them as clear evidences, they say, ‘This is not but a man who wishes to avert you from that which your fathers were worshipping.’ And they say, ‘This is not except a lie invented.’ And those who disbelieve say of the truth when it has come to them, ‘This is not but obvious magic.’ And We had not given them any scriptures which they could study, and We had not sent to them before you, (O Muhammad), any warner. And those before them denied, and they (the people of Mecca) have not attained a tenth of what We had given them. But they (i.e., the former peoples) denied My messengers, so how (terrible) was My reproach.” (Quran 34:43-45)
Was He A Poet?
God mentions their accusation in the Quran and responds to it:
“Or do they say (of you), ‘A poet for whom we await a misfortune of time?’ Say, ‘Wait, for indeed I am, with you, among the waiters.’ Or do their minds command them to (say) this, or are they a transgressing people? Or do they say, ‘He has made it up?’ Rather, they do not believe.” (Quran 52:30-32)
God describes the poets of that time so the Prophet can be compared with them:
“And as for the poets - (they, too, are prone to deceive themselves: and so, only) those who are lost in grievous error would follow them. Art thou not aware that they roam confusedly through all the valleys (of words and thoughts), and that they (so often) say what they do not do (or feel)? (Most of them are of this kind -) save those who have attained to faith, and do righteous deeds, and remember God unceasingly, and defend themselves (only) after having been wronged, and (trust in God’s promise that) those who are bent on wrongdoing will in time come to know how evil a turn their destinies are bound to take!” (Quran 26:224-227)
Arabian poets were the furthest from the truth, speaking of wine, womanizing, war, and leisure, unlike the Prophet who invites to good manners, serving God, and helping the poor.Muhammad followed his own teachings before anyone else unlike the poets of old or philosophers of today.
The Quran which the Prophet recited was unlike any poetry in its style. The Arabs of the time has strict rules in regards to rhythm, rhyme, syllables and endings to each verse of poetry. The Quran did not conform to any of the rules which were known in the time, but at the same time, it surpasses any type of text which the Arabs had ever heard. Some of them actually became Muslims after hearing only a few verses of the Quran, due to their certain knowledge that the source of something so beautiful as it could not be any created being.
Muhammad was never known to have composed a poem before Islam or after prophethood. Rather, the Prophet had a sever dislike for it. Compilations of his statements, called Sunna, have been diligently preserved and are completely different in its literary content than the Quran. The store-house of Arabic poetry do not contain any couplets by Muhammad.
Was He A Sorcerer?
Prophet Muhammad never learned or practiced sorcery. On the contrary, he condemned the practice of sorcery and taught his followers how to seek protection against it.
Sorcerers have a strong relationship with the devil. Their partnership allows them to deceive people. Devils propagate lies, sins, obscenities, immorality, evil, and they destroy familys. The Quran clarifies those upon whom the devils descend:
“Shall I inform you upon whom the devils descend? They descend upon every sinful liar. They pass on what is heard, and most of them are liars.” (Quran 26:221-223)
Prophet Muhammad was known and recognized to be a man of integrity true to his word who was not known to have ever lied. He commanded good morals and fine manners. No sorcerer in world history has brought a scripture like the Quran or a Law like his.
 The idiomatic phrase is used, as most of the commentators point out, to describe a confused or aimless - and often self-contradictory - play with words and thoughts. In this context it is meant to stress the difference between the precision of the Quran, which is free from all inner contradictions, and the vagueness often inherent in poetry.
What the Bible Says About Muhammad
According to the Bible, God said to Moses, on whom be peace: I will raise up for them a prophet like you from among their brothers; I will put my words in his mouth, and he will tell them everything I command him. (The Holy Bible, New International Version, Deuteronomy chapter 18, verse 18). The prophet described in the above verse must have the following three characteristics: 1. He will be like Moses. 2. He will come from the brothers of the Israelites, i.e. the Ishmaelites. 3. God will put His words in the mouth of the prophet and he will declare what God commanded him. Let us see which prophet God was speaking of. 1. The prophet like Moses Some people feel that this prophecy refers to the prophet Jesus, on whom be peace. But, although Jesus (peace be upon him and all of God’s prophets and messengers) was truly a prophet of God, he is not the prophet spoken of here. He was born miraculously, and finally God raised him up miraculously. On the other hand, Muhammad is more like Moses; both were born in a natural way and both died natural deaths.
2. From among the Ishmaelites Abraham had two sons, Ishmael and Isaac (Genesis, chapter 21). Ishmael became the grandfather of the Arab nation. And Isaac became the grandfather of Jewish nation. The prophet spoken of was to come not from among the Jews themselves, but from among their brothers, the Ishmaelites. Muhammad a descendant of Ishmael, is indeed that prophet. 3. God will put his words in his mouth ‘Neither the content of the revelation, nor its form, were of Muhammad’s devising. Both were given by the angel, and Muhammad’s task was only to repeat what he heard.’ (Word Religions from Ancient history to the Present, by Geoffrey Parrinder, p. 472). God sent the angel Gabriel to teach Muhammad the exact words that he should repeat to the people. The words are therefore not his own; they did not come from his own thoughts, but were put into his mouth by the angel. These are written down in the Qur’an word for word, exactly as they came from God. Now that we know that prophet we must listen to him, for, according to the Bible, God says: ‘I will punish anyone who refuses to obey him’ (Good News Bible, Deut. 18:19). Jesus (on whom be peace) In the Glorious Qur'an The Qur’an tells us many wonderful things about Jesus. As a result, believers in the Qur’an love Jesus, honor him and believe in him. In fact, no Muslim can be a Muslim unless he or she believes in Jesus, on whom be peace. The Qur’an says that Jesus was born of a virgin, that he spoke while he was still only a baby, that he healed the blind and the leper by God's leave and that he raised the dead by God's leave. What then is the significance of these miracles? First, the virgin birth. God demonstrates His power to create in every way. God created everyone we know from a man and a woman. But how about Adam, on whom be peace? God created him from neither a man nor a woman. And Eve from only a man, without a woman. And finally, to complete the picture, God created Jesus from a woman, without a man. What about the other miracles? These were to show that Jesus was not acting on his own behalf, but that he was backed by God. The Qur’an specifies that these miracles were performed by God's leave. This may be compared to the Book of Acts in the Bible, chapter 2, verse 22, where it says that the miracles were done by God to show that he approved of Jesus. Also, note that Jesus himself is recorded in the Gospel of John to have said: ‘I can do nothing of my own authority' (5:30). The miracles, therefore, were done not by his own authority, but by God's authority. What did Jesus teach? The Qur'an tells us that Jesus came to teach the same basic message which was taught by previous prophets from God – that we must shun every false god and worship only the One True God. Jesus taught that he is the servant and messenger of the One True God, the God of Abraham. These Qur'anic teachings can be compared with the Bible (Mark 10:18; Matthew 26:39; John 14:28, 17:3, and 20:17) where Jesus teaches that the one he worshipped is the only true God. See also Matthew 12:18; Acts 3:13, and 4:27 where we find that his disciples knew him as ‘Servant of God’. The Qur’an tells us that some of the Israelites rejected Jesus, and conspired to kill him, but God rescued Jesus and raised him to Himself. God will cause Jesus to descend again, at which time Jesus will confirm his true teachings and everyone will believe in him as he is and as the Qur'an teaches about him. Jesus is the Messiah. He is a word from God, and a spirit from Him. He is honored in this world and in the hereafter, and he is one of those brought nearest to God. Jesus was a man who spoke the truth which he heard from God. This can be compared with the Gospel According John where Jesus says to the Israelites: ‘You are determined to kill me, a man who has told you the truth that I heard from God’ (John 8:40).http://d1.islamhouse.com/data/en/ih_articl...ut_Muhammad.pdf

The Promised Prophet of the Biblehttp://d1.islamhouse.com/data/en/ih_books/...f_the_bible.pdf
The Prophet Muhammad: a mercy for all creation
“Indeed, in this [Quran] is notification for a worshipping people. And We have not sent you, [O Muhammad], except as a mercy to the worlds.” (Quran: 21:106-107)
Allah's Messenger was the kindest of men in the same way as he excelled all others in courage and valour. Being extremely kind-hearted, his eyes brimmed with tears at the slightest sign of inhumanity. A Companion, Shaddaad bin 'Aws reported the Apostle as saying: "Allah has commanded you to show kindness to everyone, so if you have to kill, kill in a good manner, and if you slaughter an animal, slaughter it gently. If anyone of you has to slay an animal, he should sharpen the blade first and treat the animal well." Ibn 'Abbas relates that a man threw a goat on its side and then started sharpening his knife. When the Prophet saw him he said: "Do you want to kill it twice? Why did you not sharpen the knife before throwing it on the ground?"
A Mercy for the Believers
The Messenger’s compassion towards the believers was of the utmost degree. The Quran describes his compassion in the following verse, which means: “There has certainly come to you a Messenger from among yourselves. Grievous to him is what you suffer; [he is] concerned over you [i.e., your guidance] and to the believers is kind and merciful.” (Quran: 9:128)
Sa‘d bin ‘Ubaadah once became ill, so Allah's Messenger visited him in his house. On seeing his faithful Companion in a pitiful state, he was moved to tears. Then, he said: “Allah does not punish because of tears, nor because of grief, but he punishes because of this."- and he pointed to his tongue. (Al-Bukhari)
A Mercy Towards his Enemies
The prisoners of war taken captive at the battle of Badr were amongst his bitterest enemies. Nevertheless, he made sure that they were given the best of treatment. Among them was Suhayl bin 'Amr who was a fiery speaker and was denouncing the Prophet . 'Umar one the Prophet’s closest companions, suggested that two of his lower teeth be pulled out so that he might not be so vile in his speeches. The Prophet replied: “Were I to do this, Allah would disfigure me on the Day of Judgement, despite the fact that I am His messenger.” (Hadith)
In Makkah, his people inflicted him with every kind of suffering, eventually forcing him to emigrate to Madinah, and then waged war on him for five years. However, when he conquered Makkah without bloodshed in the twenty-first year of his Prophethood, he asked the Makkan unbelievers who were awaiting his decision about them: “How do you expect me to treat you?” They responded unanimously: "You are a noble one, the son of a noble one." He announced to them his decision:
“You may go free! No reproach this day shall be on you; may God forgive you.”
A Mercy for Women
Prophet Muhammad was also very kind and affectionate towards women. Women were very badly treated in those times. The Noble Prophet gave them honour and dignity at par with men in the community. 'Umar reported: "We did not have much regard for women while we were at Makkah, but they were better treated in Madinah. Allah's Messenger established women's rights through his sayings and commandments, which improved their position and status."
A Mercy for Children
Allah's Messenger was particularly compassionate towards children. When he saw a child crying, he sat beside him or her and shared his or her feelings. He felt the pain of a mother for her child more than the mother herself. Once he said: “I stand in prayer and wish to prolong it. However, I hear the cry of a child and cut the prayer short for the anxiety which the mother is feeling.” (Al-Bukhari)
He would take children in his arms and embrace them. He was once hugging his beloved grandsons, Hasan and Hussain, when Aqrah bin Haabis told him, ‘I have got ten children. So far, I have not kissed any of them.’ Allah’s Messenger responded: “The one with no pity for others is not pitied.” (Al-Bukhari and Muslim)
According to another version, he said: “What can I do for you if Allah has removed from you the feeling of compassion?” (At-Tirmidhi)
A Mercy for Slaves
The Prophet strongly enjoined the duty of kind and generous treatment upon slaves, servants and labourers engaged in manual work. Jaabir related the Apostle of Allah as saying: "Feed them with the food which you eat, clothe them with such clothing as you wear, and do not cause trouble to Allah's creatures." The Apostle is further stated to have said: "Those whom Allah has made your dependents are your brothers, servants and helpmates. Anybody whose brother has been made subservient to him ought to feed him with the food he eats and clothe him with the clothes he wears; command him not to do that which he is unable to do and if it becomes necessary to do so then he should help him in doing the job."
A Mercy for Animals
His compassion encompassed not only human beings, but also animals.
The Prophet forbade his companions to keep the unintelligent creatures hungry or thirsty, to disturb or to overburden them. He commended that kindness and putting them at ease were meritorious acts tending to bring man nearer to Allah. Abu Hurairah reports the Prophet as saying: "A traveler who was thirsty saw a well in the way. He got inside the well and when he came out he saw a dog licking mud due to thirst. The man realised that the dog was as thirsty as him, so he got into the well again, filled his leather sock with water and carried it out holding it with his teeth. Thus, he quenched the thirst of the dog. Allah was pleased with this act of kindness and pardoned his sins." The Companions asked: "O Messenger of Allah is there recompense in the matter of beasts and wild animals also?" The Prophet replied: "There is recompense in regard to every creature that has a living heart."
'Abdullah bin 'Umar related that the Prophet said: "A woman was cast away to hell only because she had withheld food and water from her cat and refused to set it free so that the cat might satisfy its hunger by eating worms and insects."
Once on return from a military campaign, a few Companions took away the chicks of a bird from their nest to stroke them. The mother bird came back and when it could not find its chicks in the nest, it began to fly around screeching. When informed of the matter, Allah’s Messenger became angry and ordered the chicks to be put back in the nest. (Abu Dawood)
The love and compassion of Allah’s Messenger for all kinds of creatures was not of the kind claimed by today’s ‘humanists’. He was sincere and balanced in his love and compassion. He was more compassionate than any other person. He was a Prophet raised by Allah, the Creator and Sustainer of all beings, for the guidance and happiness of conscious beings - mankind and jinn - and the harmony of existence. Therefore, he lived not for himself but for others; he is a mercy for all the worlds.http://d1.islamhouse.com/data/en/ih_articl...et_Muhammad.pdf
