The Muhammad Story

Mr. Estes walked into his library and saw that Thomas was reading the Qur'an. As Mr. Estes sat down he asked Thomas, "Tell me what you know of the prophet Muhammad."

Thomas looked up from his reading and said, "Muhammad was a descendant of the Prophet Ishmael through the lineage of his second son Kedar. Muhammad was popularly known as Al-Ameen for his unimpeachable character. The title Al-Ameen means the Honest, the Reliable and the Trustworthy, and it signified the highest standard of moral and public life. When Muhammad was 40, he was visited by the Angel Gabriel during his one of his many retreats to Mount Hira for meditation. This began a series of revelations that lasted 23 years and were later written down and became known as the Qur'an." Thomas held up the book as added emphasis.

Mr. Estes smiled, "You have learned a lot for a man, who a short time ago was an unbeliever in all things of religion. Have you discovered why the Qur'an is so unique?"

Thomas looked excited, "I have never seen a religion that had in its sacred text a reference to the Big Bang!" Thomas showed it to Mr. Estes, ["Surah al-Anbiya 21:30 "Do not the unbelievers see that the heavens and the earth were joined together, then We clove them asunder, and made from water every living thing? Will they not then believe?"]

Thomas jabbed away, "The Qur'an reveals the origin of the universe - how it began from one piece - mankind continues to verify this revelation, even up to now. Additionally, the fact that all life originated from water would not have been an easy thing to convince people of fourteen centuries ago! The Big Bang and the Theory of Evolution in one verse! The oldest fossil records are almost 3.6 billion years old and are simply algae."

Mr. Estes was impressed that Thomas had found that much already. "Is there anything in its history that is different from other ancient texts?" Thomas paused and said, "Well, it is the only religion I have found among all your other books and parchments that had an Angel deliver the message."

Mr. Estes stood up but just before he left he said, "That is because God used Muhammad to send a message of repentance to the people of Arabia but he also recorded a warning for the fallen angels."

Thomas brightened, "The Jinn."

Mr. Estes concluded as he left, "Yes, soon the angels who followed Lucifer during the great rebellion will be cat into the great abyss unless they repent. That is why Muhammad was the last of the Prophets. He is the only one God used to both mankind and the fallen angels."

Thomas muttered to himself as he went back to reading, "Now it makes more sense, a message to mankind and the fallen angels."

Prophecy Servant of God
` ` ` ` ` ` ` `
word Atmak not necessarily means ‘whom I uphold’ but is infact a name

the writing of Atmak is אתמך
the writing of Ahmad is אחמד

Isaiah 42:1
God says
“Behold, 'My Servant' (pronounced as Abd-ee), ‘whom I uphold’ (pronounced as Atmak);

God mentioning about the coming of His servant
Behold My Servant Ahmad (Isaiah 42:1) - so who is this Ahmad as in God'servant?

He is none other than
Abd-Allah Ahmad (Servant of God, Ahmad) - Prophet Muhammad s.a.w
