Muhammad the Greatest among the sons of Adam

    Muhammad was not a god or son of god; nevertheless he was a chosen one of the Creator-God and it is a fact that he was the greatest among the sons of Adam and Eve and a servant of Him.
    Jesus was also not a god or son of god; he was only a Son of Man/woman.

      Ego- MY prophet, my religions is the greatest and best reveals a lack of understanding the prophets, god  and their message.

        This is as foolish as a Hindu saying Krishna was the greatest or a Christian saying Jesus was the greatest, this has been the root cause of many ugly wars which gives religion and the prophets a bad name.
        The prophets were not fanatics and spread the oneness of all, stop twisting and corrupting these great masters names.

    Opinion editorial noted.

    Why anyone can construe that they were more than men is mystifying. Both can claim a certain level of enlightenment, perhaps, that might give insight for people who seek enlightenment, but to go beyond that they were mortal is superstition and really cannot be proven factually.

    Good for you paar. A thread on a belief of Islam. I like it. Not attacking anyone, just throwing out something you believe in. Nice idea. I would disagree with your statement, but other than that; well done. smile

      Muhammad only fought rationally against Meccans who attacked Muslims of Medina, hundreds of mile away, aggressively to make Muslims extinct; Muhammad had a right to defend himself.

          I am correct sir:

          The Battle of Badr (Arabic: غزوة بدر‎), fought March 13, 624 AD (17 Ramadan, 2 AH in the Islamic calendar) in the Hejaz region of western Arabia (present-day Saudi Arabia), was a key battle in the early days of Islam and a turning point in Muhammad's struggle with his opponents among the Quraish[1] in Mecca. The battle has been passed down in Islamic history as a decisive victory attributable to divine intervention, or by secular sources to the strategic genius of Muhammad. It is one of the few battles specifically mentioned in the Quran. Most contemporary knowledge of the battle at Badr comes from traditional Islamic accounts, both hadiths and biographies of Muhammad, recorded in written form some time after the battle.[2]
          Prior to the battle, the Muslims and Meccans had fought several smaller skirmishes in late 623 and early 624, as the Muslim ghazawāt (prophet-led battles) had become more frequent. Badr, however was the first large-scale engagement between the two forces. Advancing to a strong defensive position, Muhammad's well-disciplined force broke the Meccan lines, killing several important Quraishi leaders including Muhammad's chief antagonist, 'Amr ibn Hishām. For the early Muslims the battle was the first sign that they might eventually defeat their enemies among the Meccans. Mecca at that time was one of the richest and most powerful cities in Arabia, fielding an army three times larger than that of the Muslims. The Muslim victory also signalled other tribes that a new power had arisen in Arabia and strengthened Muhammad’s position as leader of the often fractious community in Medina.

    I took the title of the thread from the following, written by a Christian,William Montgomery Watt.

    Not possible to refuse Muhammad rationally: Analyzing William Montgomery Watt

    William Montgomery Watt called Muhammad, may peace be on him, 'one of the greatest sons of Adam,' he regarded the Holy Quran as divinely inspired, though not infallible, yet he continued to be an apologist for Christianity all his life. Is there any rational way to reconcile Watt's views?

    The more we study Watt and other reasonable Christian Orientalists, it seems that only way to deny prophethood of Muhammad, is to have an irrational animosity against him, like the medieval Christians or a deceptive approach of constantly shifting sands! Propping up necessary illusions against the greatest champion for humanity and propaganda seem to be the only way to sustain denial of Muhammad. This Google Knol is dedicated to analyzing person and writings of William Montgomery Watt.

    Any interpretation of individual incidents of the prophet Muhammad's life that is not consistent with his well established achievements and well documented developments of his life, completely violates the principles of history. It is an obligation of every historian to give the readers a plausible and a consistent account of the person they write about. Unfortunately, when it comes to the Holy Prophet Muhammad, many Christian writers are unable to rise above the centuries of medieval prejudices against him that the Catholic Church had cultivated in the times of crusades. This introduces numerous contradictions in their writings and in my opinion William Montgomery Watt is a prime example of this phenomenon.

    If my knols are boring to you, it may be that you need to read more of them, as was suggested by John Cage, "If something is boring after two minutes, try it for four. If still boring, then eight. Then sixteen. Then thirty-two. Eventually one discovers that it is not boring at all."

    Oh I am so disappointed Paar. Over the last couple weeks I've come back to forumland after a long stay away and found myself agreeing with many of your insightful comments. But this OP looks like 'Old-Paar'; a Paar that simply puts out posts that say 'Islam and Muhammed Rule OK' with a thin veneer of humility, that convinces nobody that you are really seeking interfaith dialogue.

      Sorry for your disappointment. I took the title from
      William Montgomery Watt, a Christian who called Muhammad, 'one of the greatest sons of Adam,'.

      And there is no doubt in it; in fact the greatness belongs to the Creator-God Allah YHWH; and all great men like Krishna,Buddha,Moses,Zoroaster, Jesus and Muhammad served His cause with humility; they never boasted about themselves.
