Muhammad is considered in Islam to be a messenger and prophet sent by God to guide humanity to the right way. He is considered as the last in a series of prophets sent by God. The Quran is believed to have been presented to Muhammad by God. Muhammad is know as the greatest of all prophets to the Muslims, and his religion as the only accepted religion of God. He is seen by Muslims as a possessor of all virtues. The scattered verses of the Prophet had been inscribed not only on date leaves and shreds of leather but on “the hearts of men.”
Muller says, “Now Muhammad had certainly not lived like an angel” referring to how Muhammad had raided one of their caravans in the holy month of pilgrimage. He also says this because in 632 Muhammad confused his followers by dying. In war Muhammad lied to his men promising them that if they were to die in battle that they would marry seventy dark-eyed virgins. Muhammad also had preached gospels that where unholy. I his gospels he encouraged war and had no message of peace. He also had eleven wives making him unholy, but this had to do with the time and place that he lived in. to everyone but strong Muslims Muhammad was a bad person and a mortal. But to the Muslims he was a descendent of God. Yet Muhammad was a great man, superior to his time and place. He not only preached but practiced a morality that was superior to his era. If he could be ruthless, he was more often gentle, kind, generous. He could be Christ like in his sympathy for the weak and poor. Through the fog of tradition one can see an attractive humanity, as in his unfailing courtesy touched by shyness. His humble sharing of the household chores. You can understand why he was so deeply loved by those around him.
Muhammad is like Jesus in the sense that he showed complete dedication to his God. He also had a power of personality that had as deep of an impression on his followers as Jesus made on his. His basic teaching is clearer and more nearly uniform...
...Why is Muhammad (pbuh) important to Muslims?
Muhammad (pbuh) is extremely important to Muslims all around the world, and a sacred symbol for the Islamic religion. Pbuh stands for ‘peace be upon him’. This abbreviation is added along with his name all around the world as a sign of respect for him. Not only that, but Muslims do this to give peace upon him. Muhammad was not able to read or write so his was known as an ‘illiterate’ when he was born, and until he died. Because of this, when ‘Allah’ talked to him, he had to preach to other people and then they had to write them down. All of these saying were kept and treasured and then were finally added into books like the Qur’an and the Hadith. This essay will cover just exactly why Muhammad is so important to Muslims today.
Muhammad (pbuh) was by far the most important prophet on Earth to Muslims. He was also the last Islamic Prophet. I believe that one reason why he was important was because of the reason he was the last prophet. I also believe that Muslims treasure him as the last prophet because no other prophet came after him and he left the ultimate saying, rules on the guide to how Allah wanted them to live. Muhammad also received the words of the Qur’an. Muslims believe that the Qur’an contains the words of Allah and that this final revelation marks the completion of Allah’s message. The Qur’an is the Islamic holy book. Being it...
...Muhammad is one of the most influential men in history as he has millions of followers due to his characteristics. Leadership has been defined in many ways but it is mostly agreed that “leadership is about influencing others towards a common goal.” According to Michael Hart (1978) book ‘The 100: He listed Muhammad (peace be upon him-PBUH) as the most influential individual in the history because he “was the only man in history who was supremely successful on both the religious and secular levels” and “in fact, as the driving force behind the Arab conquests, he may well rank as the most influential political leader of all time”. Muhammad (PBUH) was the greatest and a role model of Islam who will always be remembered throughout history. Moreover Muhammad (PBUH) displays effectiveness in his leadership as he dragged a whole nation to believe his goal to worship the only God. Also the prophet Muhammad had many strategies to resolve conflict amongst a group.
Muhammad (PBUH) was born in Mecca in 570 AD. His father died shortly before his birth, and he lost his mother at the age of six. He was then raised by his uncle Abu talib. For whom he worked for as a shepherd at the age of 9 and then he worked as a trade marker. At the age of 40 Muhammad (PBUH) received his call to become a prophet. And he received the word of God through the angel Gabriel and divine message was recorded in...
...Prophet Muhammad was a religious, political, and military leader from Mecca who unified Arabia into a single religious polity under Islam. He is believed by Muslims and Baha'is to be a messenger and prophet of God. Muhammad is almost universally considered by Muslims as the last prophet sent by God for mankind.[n 1] Non-Muslims regard Muhammad as the founder of Islam. Muslims consider him to be the restorer of an unaltered original monotheistic faith of Adam, Noah, Abraham, Moses, Jesus, and other prophets.
Born in about 570 CE in the Arabian city of Mecca, he was orphaned at an early age and brought up under the care of his uncle Abu Talib. He later worked mostly as a merchant, as well as a shepherd, and was first married by age 25. Being in the habit of periodically retreating to a cave in the surrounding mountains for several nights of seclusion and prayer, he later reported that it was there, at age 40, that he received his first revelation from God. Three years after this event Muhammad started preaching these revelations publicly, proclaiming that "God is One", that complete "surrender" to Him is the only way acceptable to God, and that he himself was a prophet and messenger of God, in the same vein as other Islamic prophets.
Muhammad gained few followers early on, and was met with hostility from some Meccan tribes; he and his followers were treated harshly. To escape persecution,...
...Jesus and Muhammad
Throughout history many religions have originated. Some of them are philosophical and others are more spiritual. Tales have been told and scriptures have been written. Religion has been connected to great men all through history. Of all the written accounts, two men seem to stand out more than any others. They are Jesus and Muhammad. They were both influential spiritual leaders. Jesus is associated with the Christian religion whileMuhammad is of the Islamic faith.
The two religions share many things in common as do the two men. Both religions are monotheistic. Each man shares a strong belief and connection to the one and only one God, or Creator. The commonalities the two men and religions share are many but so are their differences.
Muhammad never knew his father. His father died before he was born. After the death of his mother Muhammad lived with his uncle. At a young age Muhammad was identified by a Christian monk as a prophet (Fisher, 2005). He married when he was 25 and at the age of 40 made a spiritual retreat where he was visited by the angel Gabriel. He returned from the retreat shaken and unsure how to continue his teachings. He was confused about his new found responsibilities and concerned he would face ridicule over being a prophet (Fisher, 2005). A few years after the encounter with Gabriel Muhammad began preaching publicly....

JESUS AND MUHAMMAD: (The comparative character).
In the history of world, religion has always played a vital role in the lives of humans. Even in the olden ages, people used to worship idols and refer them as their gods. Religion has been a factor of the way through which people live, interact and perform so many activities. It is the key through which one grows and achieves his or her moral values depending on the type of religion.
In regard to history and also the belief of so many people, these religions are taught or learned from the messenger (one who reveals the messages from God). There are so many religions practiced all over the world but Islam and Christianity has more dominance over the other religions like Buddhism, Judaism etc. even though some of them evolved from them. These two religions have so many things in common between them and they are revealed by two different persons or rather, the two most influential people the world has ever witnessed.
This document talks about the comparison attributes between Prophet Muhammad and Jesus as well as their religions Islam and Christianity respectively. According to both of them Jesus and Muhammad, they worship the same God and they are conveying message from this God to the people. Phipps has described the beginning of the situations where Islam and Christianity started having different beliefs and...
...JESUS AND MUHAMMAD
Jesus and Muhammad, ever since they walked this earth people have flocked and worshiped these men. But why, what makes them important and why are they still the most influential people on earth. Christianity alone makes up for 2 billion people world-wide while Islam commands over 1 billion worldwide. Followers of both reach to all parts large and small on the planet and from all areas the views differ in the way they worship the leaders. Both have one God (Allah to Islam) both have the phrase “peace be with you”, but both have conquered and martyr all ranges of life from Jews, other Islam’s, and Christians. These two religions have also been at work for a thousand years, but only recently Islamic extremists have re-launched their war.
Jesus Christ “Son Of God”, four Gospels written by Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John are the stories of his life written from their personal experience. Jesus Christ’s girth is celebrated on December 25 although in the gospels the exact day and year are not agreed upon. Jesus was born the son of Mary and Joseph. According to the gospels it is written that Mary was still a virgin when she conceived Jesus by the Holy Spirit. Born in a stable in Bethlehem, Jesus, was visited by Sheppard’s and three Kings who brought gifts to the Messiah.(Holy Bible, new Testament) Jesus grew up working as a carpenter like Joseph, when he was 12 years old he was found in the Temple talking to the...
...MUHAMMAD IN THE BIBLE
The idea that the Bible contains prophecies about the coming of Muhammad (peace be upon him), may surprise many people. It isn’t di cult to understand why, since the general perception people have of Muhammad (pbuh) is that of a man with no connection to Biblical Prophets or prophecies. However, taking a closer look at Muhammad’s (pbuh) life, it becomes clear that he upheld the basic tenets that the Biblical Prophets came with, and led millions to do the same. Indeed it was because of the teachings of Muhammad (pbuh) that billions of Muslims since his time up until today have revered the persons of Jesus, Moses and Abraham (peace be upon them all). In this booklet, you will discover how both the Old and New Testament contain numerous verses which describe the coming of a new Prophet. Additionally, verses from the Bible itself will clearly show us that Muhammad (pbuh) is that Prophet.
JOHN AND THE PRIESTS
In the Chapter of John, some Jewish priests quizzed John the Baptist about three people who they were informed about in their scriptures. They asked him:
According to Deuteronomy 18:18 God speaks to the Prophet Moses and tells him that he will raise up a new Prophet who has certain clearly identiﬁable characteristics:
John confessed (he didn’t deny but confessed), “I’m not the Christ.” They asked him, “Then who are you? Are you Elijah?”...
...Moses, Jesus, and Muhammad are today considered as three of the greatest prophets in the world. They portrayed themselves as religious figures as well as the messengers of god. There teachings are believed by many people and they have many followers. While Moses and Muhammad are projected as the prophets, Jesus is considered to be the son of god. They established a monotheistic belief and believed that they were the only god and there is only one god to follow. It was thought that both Jesus and Muhammad were the messengers from god carrying the same message. However, people believed in the experience and the influence of each, which led to the formation of two different religions. While Moses was called the founder of the religion of Israel.
Moses became the leader of the Israelites after leading them out of slavery from Egypt. He was believed as the “servant of god” by his followers. While leading them out of Egypt on the way to Mount Sinai, Moses was given a set of rules by god, called The Ten Commandments to give to his people. The Ten Commandments stated the 10 rules that would guide people to be good. The rules included something like one most not steal, lie, commit adultery or do anything that would harm others. The meaning of the Ten Commandments was to spread love among people and lead them to live their life in a correct way. Moses was appointed as a prophet by god. There were three incidents that are mentioned in Torah...
