If you read Robert Spencer’s book “Did Muhammad Exist?” you will realize that he never existed. There is no known document known today which can be linked to the time he allegedly existed. And to Christian readers, I hate to say this but without the Gospels which are full of contradictions and were written some 3 generations after he allegedly lived, there is no hard evidence that Jesus Christ ever existed either. Just think of the untold millions of people who were murdered in their name throughout history.
Less then 3% of all recorded wars of history involved religion, most of them being Islamic Jihad. The largest cause of war has been Atheist regimes that outlaw Christianity.
I didn’t read the book but I watched a debate between Robert Spencer and David Wood regarding the topic of Muhammad’s existence. It very well may be a possibility. I have to disagree with you about Jesus’s existence though. Even non-Christian New Testament Scholars, including Bart Ehrman, acknowledge Jesus’ existence and death by crucifixion as a historical fact.
One of the reasons the Gospels are dated late, especially Mark, is because in that Gospel, Jesus predicts the destruction of the temple in Jerusalem (was destroyed in 70 AD) . Since non-Christian scholars obviously don’t believe in prophesy, they reason that it had to have been written much later. Many of the apostle Pauls letters were written very early also which atheist Anthony Flew acknowledged as genuine.
History, specifically works of Josephus, prove three Gospels Matt, (John)-Mark and John the Beloved written by 90 BC by persons known to and by Jesus during His lifetime. Josephus and other Roman historians record the crucifixion of Jesus Ben Joseph of Nazareth. That He was executed by order of Pontious Pilate in Jerusalem. That He was witnessed alive by Romans and Jews, after declared dead by a Roman military official. These facts are not in dispute. Furthermore, no other figure, historical OR mythological, has impacted history n culture of mankind to even a miniscule fraction of the extent that Jesus has done, is doing and will continue to do. The unfortunate fact that His Name is a point of contention amongst men reflects NOT on His Nature or Message, rather an indication of our need for His Salvation.
“I hate to say this but without the Gospels which are full of contradictions and were written some 3 generations after he allegedly lived, there is no hard evidence that Jesus Christ ever existed either.”
The above comment is ignorant and there is no evidence of real research into the reliability of the NT. Amazing how these old and refuted argument keep being parroted by the ignorant.
It is generally accepted among most secular historians that Jesus of Nazareth existed around 7,8 AD and was crucified by the Roman governor Pontius Pilate. Around 35 AD. Even atheist historians concur that he existed
If he was indeed the messiah, the son of God, the savior of mankind etc. how come nothing was written about him until 30 years after his death? Why did he not do any writing? What is known about his childhood, his adolescent years, and the years leading up to his “ministry”?
Riddle me this, Martyman. When did the world first read of Alexander the Great? Julius Caesar? Genghis Khan? More time passed between their deaths and publication of historical reference than did between Jesus’ life on earth and the publication of the three early Gospels. BTW Luke’s Gospel, n Acts both dated to early 2nd century still earlier than the above named references. Jesus came not to write but to demonstrate, die and live again. He left the honor of writing about Him to His faithful flock.
I know That my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ lived, was crucified and was resurrected on the third day, conquering death and Hell . Because of this I have accepted Jesus as my Savior and he has given me everlasting life. May His name be praised above all names.
What famous non-Muslims said about Islam and Prophet Muhammad PBUH
I hope the time is not far off when I shall be able to unite all the wise and educated men of all the countries and establish a uniform regime based on the principles of Quran which alone are true and which alone can lead men to happiness.
Sir George Bernard Shaw
I have always held the religion of Muhammad in high estimation because of its wonderful vitality. It is the only religion which appears to me to possess that assimilating capacity to the changing phase of existence which can make itself appeal to every age. I have studied him – the wonderful man and in my opinion far from being an anti-Christ, he must be called the Saviour of Humanity.
I believe that if a man like him were to assume the dictatorship of the modern world he would succeed in solving its problems in a way that would bring it the much needed peace and happiness: I have prophesied about the faith of Muhammad that it would be acceptable to the Europe of tomorrow as it is beginning to be acceptable to the Europe of today.
The Islamic teachings have left great traditions for equitable and gentle dealings and behaviour, and inspire people with nobility and tolerance. These are human teachings of the highest order and at the same time practicable. These teachings brought into existence a society in which hard-heartedness and collective oppression and injustice were the least as compared with all other societies preceding it… Islam is replete with gentleness, courtesy, and fraternity.
During all the first part of the Middle Ages, no other people made as important a contribution to human progress as did the Arabs, if we take this term to mean all those whose mother-tongue was Arabic, and not merely those living in the Arabian peninsula. For centuries, Arabic was the language of learning, culture and intellectual progress for the whole of the civilized world with the exception of the Far East. From the 9th to the 12th century there were more philosophical, medical, historical, religious, astronomical and geographical works written in Arabic than in any other human tongue.
R. Bosworth Smith
He was Caesar and Pope in one; but he was Pope without Pope’s pretensions, Caesar without the legions of Caesar: without a standing army, without a bodyguard, without a palace, without a fixed revenue; if ever any man had the right to say that he ruled by the right divine, it was Mohammed, for he had all the power without its instruments and without its supports. He cared not for the dressings of power. The simplicity of his private life was in keeping with his public life.
It was the first religion that preached and practised democracy; for, in the mosque, when the call for prayer is sounded and worshippers are gathered together, the democracy of Islam is embodied five times a day when the peasant and king kneel side by side and proclaim: ‘God Alone is Great’
Dr. William Draper
Four years after the death of Justinian, A.D. 569, was born in Mecca, in Arabia, the man who, of all men, has exercised the greatest influence upon the human race… To be the religious head of many empires, to guide the daily life of one-third of the human race, may perhaps justify the title of a Messenger of God.
The lies (Western slander) which well-meaning zeal has heaped round this man (Muhammad) are disgraceful to ourselves only.
A silent great soul, one of that who cannot but be earnest. He was to kindle the world, the world’s Maker had ordered so.
A. S. Tritton
The picture of the Muslim soldier advancing with a sword in one hand and the Qur’an in the other is quite false.
De Lacy O’Leary
History makes it clear, however, that the legend of fanatical Muslims sweeping through the world and forcing Islam at the point of sword upon conquered races is one of the most fantastically absurd myths that historians have ever repeated.
The good sense of Muhammad despised the pomp of royalty. The Apostle of God submitted to the menial offices of the family; he kindled the fire; swept the floor; milked the ewes; and mended with his own hands his shoes and garments. Disdaining the penance and merit of a hermit, he observed without effort of vanity the abstemious diet of an Arab.
Edward Gibbon and Simon Oakley
The greatest success of Mohammad’s life was effected by sheer moral force.
Islam is a religion that is essentially rationalistic in the widest sense of this term considered etymologically and historically… the teachings of the Prophet, the Qur’an has invariably kept its place as the fundamental starting point, and the dogma of unity of God has always been proclaimed therein with a grandeur a majesty, an invariable purity and with a note of sure conviction, which it is hard to find surpassed outside the pale of Islam… A creed so precise, so stripped of all theological complexities and consequently so accessible to the ordinary understanding might be expected to possess and does indeed possess a marvellous power of winning its way into the consciences of men.
I wanted to know the best of the life of one who holds today an undisputed sway over the hearts of millions of mankind… I became more than ever convinced that it was not the sword that won a place for Islam in those days in the scheme of life. It was the rigid simplicity, the utter self-effacement of the Prophet the scrupulous regard for pledges, his intense devotion to his friends and followers, his intrepidity, his fearlessness, his absolute trust in God and in his own mission. These and not the sword carried everything before them and surmounted every obstacle. When I closed the second volume (of the Prophet’s biography), I was sorry there was not more for me to read of that great life.
Alphonse de LaMartaine
If greatness of purpose, smallness of means, and astonishing results are the three criteria of a human genius, who could dare compare any great man in history with Muhammad? The most famous men created arms, laws, and empires only. They founded, if anything at all, no more than material powers which often crumbled away before their eyes. This man moved not only armies, legislations, empires, peoples, dynasties, but millions of men in one-third of the then inhabited world; and more than that, he moved the altars, the gods, the religions, the ideas, the beliefs and the souls.
My choice of Muhammad to lead the list of the world’s most influential persons may surprise some readers and may be questioned by others, but he was the only man in history who was supremely successful on both the secular and religious level.
…It is probable that the relative influence of Muhammad on Islam has been larger than the combined influence of Jesus Christ and St. Paul on Christianity. .
..It is this unparalleled combination of secular and religious influence which I feel entitles Muhammad to be considered the most influential single figure in human history.
Mohammad’s career is a wonderful instance of the force and life that resides in him who possesses an intense faith in God and in the unseen world. He will always be regarded as one of those who have had that influence over the faith, morals and whole earthly life of their fellow men, which none but a really great man ever did, or can exercise; and whose efforts to propagate a great verity will prosper.
W. Montgomery Watt
His readiness to undergo persecution for his beliefs, the high moral character of the men who believed in him and looked up to him as a leader, and the greatness of his ultimate achievement – all argue his fundamental integrity. To suppose Muhammad an impostor raises more problems that it solves. Moreover, none of the great figures of history is so poorly appreciated in the West as Muhammad…
Thus, not merely must we credit Muhammad with essential honesty and integrity of purpose, if we are to understand him at all; if we are to correct the errors we have inherited from the past, we must not forget the conclusive proof is a much stricter requirement than a show of plausibility, and in a matter such as this only to be attained with difficulty.
D. G. Hogarth in ‘Arabia’
Serious or trivial, his daily behaviour has instituted a canon which millions observe this day with conscious memory. No one regarded by any section of the human race as Perfect Man has ever been imitated so minutely.The conduct of the founder of Christianity has not governed the ordinary life of his followers. Moreover, no founder of a religion has left on so solitary an eminence as the Muslim apostle.
He was sober and abstemious in his diet and a rigorous observer of fasts. He indulged in no magnificence of apparel, the ostentation of a petty mind; neither was his simplicity in dress affected but a result of real disregard for distinction from so trivial a source.
In his private dealings he was just. He treated friends and strangers, the rich and poor, the powerful and weak, with equity, and was beloved by the common people for the affability with which he received them, and listened to their complaints.
His military triumphs awakened no pride nor vain glory, as they would have done had they been effected for selfish purposes. In the time of his greatest power he maintained the same simplicity of manners and appearance as in the days of his adversity. So far from affecting a regal state, he was displeased if, on entering a room, any unusual testimonials of respect were shown to him. If he aimed at a universal dominion, it was the dominion of faith; as to the temporal rule which grew up in his hands, as he used it without ostentation, so he took no step to perpetuate it in his family.
No other religion in history spread so rapidly as Islam. The West has widely believed that this surge of religion was made possible by the sword. But no modern scholar accepts this idea, and the Qur’an is explicit in the support of the freedom of conscience.
Christ is risen!
Glory to the Father , the Son and the Holy Spirit.
Unfortunately my friend, offering a long list of pagans praising muhammed means nothing. muhammed was and still is a false prophet, a false prophet who is dead, one who has left a legacy of deception, destruction, pain, suffering and death. I pray you turn away from the false teachings of this world and towards our Lord Jesus Christ for healing, guidance and salvation. He is the Truth, the Way and the Life.
Do not let muhammed or islam rob you of your humanity, do not let the false teachings of this world keep you from repentance and salvation. We are all sinners in need of salvation and there is no salvation outside of our Lord.
In Christ ~
May you find and accept His Truth.
I haven’t got time to debunk all of your quotes – but I am pretty sure that most of them are simply false.
Here is a link debunking your George Bernard Shaw quote:
and here is a short quote of what he actually did say:
“Islam is very different, being ferociously intolerant…..there was to be no nonsense about toleration. You accepted Allah or you had your throat cut by someone who did accept him, and who went to Paradise for having sent you to Hell. “
Iftikar Ahmed you’re full of shit. Pig shit. Why you eat pig shit then spew it out here?
