Does the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) match the description of a false prophet in the Bible?

Share

 

Christians missionaries like to claim that the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) is a false prophet; often when they do this they quote certain passages in the Bible which talk about false prophets, and they claim the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) is mentioned in such verses. In this article we shall examine the most common verses that are brought up, and from there we will see if the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) actually fits the description given by the Bible.

The first set of passages that are often used are the following:

"Jesus answered them, ‘Watch out that no one misleads you. For many will come in my name, saying, "I am the Christ," and they will mislead many ... Then if anyone says to you, "Look, here is the Christ!" or "There he is!" do not believe him. For false Christs and false prophets will appear and perform great signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the elect. Remember, I have told you ahead of time.'" Matthew 24:4-5, 23-25

The Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) certainly does not fit the description given by Jesus (pbuh).

Jesus says that many will come in my name claiming I am the Christ. The Prophet Muhammad never claimed he was the Christ or Messiah, that title was never given to him in the Quran, the term Christ is only given to Jesus in the Quran. Secondly, the Prophet Muhammad never came in Jesus' name; the Prophet Muhammad came in God’s name, not Jesus, he never claimed that Jesus sent him, rather the Quran makes it very clear that he was sent by and tasked by God.

The next description Jesus gives is that the false prophet will perform several great signs and wonders. The Prophet Muhammad does not fit this description. In fact one of the main arguments Christian missionaries bring up against the Prophet Muhammad is that he did not perform great miracles and signs like the former prophets, so now the missionaries need to be consistent, if the Prophet Muhammad didn’t perform miracles as they allege, then he certainly cannot fit the description given by Jesus. In fact the pagans also accused the Prophet Muhammad of not producing miracles:

But (now), when the Truth has come to them from Ourselves, they say, "Why are not (Signs) sent to him, like those which were sent to Moses?" Do they not then reject (the Signs) which were formerly sent to Moses? They say: "Two kinds of sorcery, each assisting the other!" And they say: "For us, we reject all (such things)!" S. 28:48

Nay; rather it is signs, clear signs in the breasts of those who have been given knowledge; and none denies Our signs but the evildoers. They say, 'Why have signs not been sent down upon him from his Lord?' Say: 'The signs are only with God, and I am only a plain warner. What, is it not SUFFICIENT FOR THEM that We have sent down upon thee the Book that is recited to them? Surely in that is a mercy, and a reminder to a people who believe. S. 29:49-51 A.J. Arberry

So as you can see, the pagans accused the Prophet Muhammad of not performing great miracles and signs. Now we aren’t saying that the Prophet Muhammad did not perform miracles and so on. He most certainly did, the Quran in itself is a sign and miracle. However so during the lifetime of the Prophet Muhammad did not go around everyday performing miracles, and doing great wonders to convince the people, his main method of bringing people to Islam was by teaching them about Islam and it’s fundamentals, and this is what attracted many to Islam, it wasn’t that he went and performed some great miracle, and then everybody believed he was a true prophet. Often times when the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) did perform miracles, he performed it for the Muslims to witness, to strengthen their faith, so even when he was performing miracles, it was more to do with strengthening the faith of the believers, rather than trying to convince the unbelievers.

Another set of passages that are brought up are the following:

Dear friends, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to determine if they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world. By this you know the Spirit of God: every spirit that confesses Jesus as the Christ who has come in the flesh is from God, but every spirit that does not confess Jesus is not from God, and this is the spirit of the antichrist, that you have heard is coming, and now is already in the world. You are from God, little children, and have conquered them, because the one who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world. They are from the world; therefore they speak from the world's perspective and the world listens to them. We are from God; the person who knows God listens to us, but whoever is not from God does not listen to us. By this we know the Spirit of truth and the spirit of deceit." 1 John 4:1-6

The Prophet Muhammad perfectly fits the description of a man of God according to these passages, note what the passages state:

By this you know the Spirit of God: every spirit that confesses Jesus as the Christ who has come in the flesh is from God, but every spirit that does not confess Jesus is not from God, and this is the spirit of the antichrist

The person who confesses that Jesus is the Christ, is from God. Those who do not confess that Jesus is the Christ are the anti-Christ. Therefore the Prophet Muhammad is from God, the Prophet Muhammad did confess that Jesus is the Christ; the Prophet Muhammad never confessed that Jesus is not the Christ:

003.045 the angels said: O Marium, surely Allah gives you good news with a Word from Him (of one) whose name is the '. Messiah, Isason of Marium, worthy of regard in this world and the hereafter and of those who are made near (to Allah).

These are verses from the Noble Quran that were revealed to the Prophet Muhammad. The Prophet Muhammad is commanded to believe and follow everything in the Quran, hence the Quran calls Jesus the Messiah, hence the Prophet Muhammad did confess that Jesus is the Christ. Nowhere in the Quran is the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh), or anyone else for that matter, except Jesus, are given the title of the Messiah.

In conclusion, the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) does not match the description of a false prophet per the Bible, he in fact matches the description of a true prophet per the Bible.

    The bible clearly states, "Who is the liar? It is whoever denies that Jesus is the Christ. Such a person is the antichrist... denying the Father and the Son. Whoever denies the Son does not have the Father". The whole verse gives the complete description. Muhammed vehemently denied that Jesus was the Son of God and had it written many times. He denies the one true doorway to eternal life and salvation. Jesus is the only way and it is God's way. Also, in the bible it says the false prophet will perform lying signs and wonders. He will blaspheme his name, his tabernacle, or holy place, and those that are in heaven. You are correct when you say he could not perform any signs or wonders and that that only comes from God. That's exactly how Jesus performed so many. He who comes in the name of God is able to do these things precisely because he comes from God. I would venture to say that Muhammad performed many lying signs and wonders like the night journey to Jerusalem. Be careful, satan will twist scripture to suit his purposes and desires, most of all to be worshipped as God. So, he most certainly does fit a false prophet, by the bible and I won't even go into all the prophecies that are fulfilled by him and his religion/ state. There are far too many to list. I only have one question. Are you certain that the "most perfect" of all men would lie, rape, kill, torture, have sex with deceased aunt's, and steal from others is someone you really want to believe about God? Is you very soul worth the risk? I hope and pray not. God is love, peace, mercy, compassion and grace. He came here to save the world and everyone reading this is included in that. He loes you so much he took your sins onto himself so you can live. There's nothing more noble than that. God bless you all. May his grace reach you. Hell is forever. Once you're there, that's it. He does not desire to populate hell with any of his creations for any length of time. You have been deceived.
