    Is Muhammad a Prophet of God? ( 1 of 2 )


    by ChristianDialogue

    Was Muhammad (pbuh) a true prophet of God? Was he a mercy for humanity? Did Muhammad (pbuh) author the Qur'an? For Muslims, the question of Muhammad's true prophethood is indisputable. They firmly believe that he is a true prophet and Messenger of God, through whom God's divine revelations throughout history were culminated and perfected, thus forming the universal divine message to mankind. For critics of Islam, generally, it is Muhammad (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him), rather than God, who is the founder of Islam, the author of its teachings, and the composer of its holy book, the Qur'an.
