-- Muhammad Liar (firstname.lastname@example.org), October 08, 2003
Insinuations that our Prophet (PBUH) is a false prophet.
Most attacks against Islam implicitly accuse the Great Prophet Muhammad, Salla llaahu Alaihi Wasallam, of being a liar.
This issue will be discussed inshaa'a llaah as the subject arises in other topics, but the following is adapted from a debate (hundreds of years ago) between Hadhrat Allama Ibnul Qayyim Rahimahullah and a priest.
Each time Ibnul Qayyim mentioned a point, the priest "retreated". The last day the priest said: We admit that Muhammad was not lying, but he was not sent to us. The next day, he did not show up.
Here is our adaptation of the debate. The original text is not currently at our disposal, but we will present an exact translation as soon as possible inshaa'a llaah:
Ibnul Qayyim mentioned the great Aayahs in the Quran (Sura 69):
44 - And if he (Muhammad, PBUH) were to invent any saying in Our name,
45 - We should certainly seize him by his right hand,
46 - And We should certainly then cut off the artery of his heart:
47 - Nor could any of you withhold him (from Our reach).
Ibnul Qayyim said, based on these Aayahs (and we second him):
If you accuse Muhammad (PBUH) of being a liar, you are bound by one of the following:
You absolutely do not believe that God exists (to answer such "lies" and "challenges" by this "imposter").
Or you believe that God exists, but you believe he is totally impotent: He hears such challenges (and promises) BUT CAN DO NOTHING about them. He sits and watches while the promises of the "imposter" come true, driven by a force stronger than His own.
Or you believe that God exists, and you believe that He is Most- Powerful, but you believe that He is a silly God ("sakheef": unwise and unjust), who misleads people to the utmost, by "swallowing" the challenges of "imposters" while He can actually stop them. Not only that, He also executes all their promises for them (starting by crushing his "chosen children" across the centuries, just as predicted by those "imposters").
