The Prophet very often used to go and watch him do his work. Although of Arab descent, he was a convert to Christianity and was very well versed with the New Testament. Waraqa died three years later and the revelation continued for about 23 years. The allegation that these Jews and Christians were the source is perverse, since in these discussions Prophet Muhammad pbuh was performing the roles of a teacher and of a preacher while inviting them to embrace Islam and pointing out that they had deviated from their true teachings of Monotheism.

Several of these Jews and Christians later embraced Islam. Between the age of 9 and 12, he accompanied his uncle Abu-Talib on a business trip to Syria. In fact a revelation came asking people to give the Prophet pbuh privacy in his own home.

If the Prophet had been meeting people who told him what to say as a revelation from God, this would not have been hidden for very long. The extremely prominent Quraish nobles who followed the Prophet and accepted Islam were wise and intelligent men who would have easily noticed anything suspicious about the way in which the Prophet brought the revelations to them - more so since the Prophetic mission lasted 23 years.

The enemies of the Prophet kept a close watch on him in order to find proof for their claim that he was a liar - they could not point out even a single instance when the Prophet may have had a secret rendezvous with particular Jews and Christians.

The earliest Arabic version of the Old Testament is that of R. Saadias Gaon of C. The oldest Arabic version of the new Testament was published by Erpenius in C. In fact it gives evidence that both of them are based on a common third source; all divine revelations came from the same source - the one universal God. No matter what human changes were introduced into some of these Judeo-Christian and other older religious scriptures that had distorted their originality, there are some areas that have remained free from distortion and thus are common to many religions.

The same logic would then also be applicable to teachings of Christianity and Judaism and thus one could wrongly claim that Jesus pbuh was not a genuine Prophet God forbid and that he simply copied from the Old Testament. The similarities between the two signify a common source that is one true God and the continuation of the basic message of monotheism and not that the later prophets have plagiarised from the previous prophets. If someone copies during an examination he will surely not write in the answer sheet that he has copied from his neighbour or Mr.

Prophet Muhummad pbuh gave due respect and credit to all the previous prophets pbut. Taurah, the revelation i. Moses pbuh. Zaboor, the revelation i. David pbuh. Injeel, the revelation i. Jesus pbuh. It is an article of faith for every Muslim to believe in all the Prophets of God and all revelations of God.

However, the present day Bible has the first five books of the Old Testament attributed to Moses and the Psalms attributed to David. These books of the present day Bible may partly contain the word of God but these books are certainly not the exact, accurate and complete revelations given to the prophets. Because of this, the fundamental teachings of the major faiths cannot be contradictory, even if there has been a considerable passage of time between the different prophetic missions, because the source of these missions was one: Almighty God, Allah.

On the contrary, it confirms, completes and perfects the messages that they brought to their people. Only based on historical details it is difficult for someone who is neither conversant with Christianity or Islam to come to a firm decision as to which of the scriptures is true; however if you verify the relevant passages of both the scriptures against scientific knowledge, you will yourself realize the truth. Creation of the Universe in Six Days As per the Bible, in the first book of Genesis in Chapter One, the universe was created in six days and each day is defined as a twenty-four hours period.

The creation of the universe has taken billions of years, which proves false or contradicts the concept of the Bible which states that the creation of the Universe took six days of twenty-four hour durations each. Sun Created After the Day The Bible says in chapter 1, verses , of Genesis that the phenomenon of day and night was created on the first day of creation of the Universe by God.

The light circulating in the universe is the result of a complex reaction in the stars; these stars were created according to the Bible Genesis chapter 1 verse 14 to 19 on the fourth day. It is illogical to mention the result that is the light the phenomenon of day and night was created on the first day of Creation when the cause or source of the light was created three days later. Moreover the existence of evening and morning as elements of a single day is only conceivable after the creation of the earth and its rotation around the sun.

Hence it is absolutely absurd to say that Prophet Muhummad pbuh copied the passages pertaining to the creation of the universe from the Bible but missed out this illogical and fantastic sequence of the Bible.

Creation of the Sun, The Earth and the Moon According to the Bible, Book of Genesis, chapter 1, verses 9 to 13, the earth was created on the third day, and as per verses 14 to 19, the sun and the moon were created on the fourth day. The earth and the moon emanated, as we know, from their original star, the Sun. Hence to place the creation of the sun and the moon after the creation of the earth is contrary to the established idea about the formation of the solar system.

Vegetation Created on the third day and Sun on the fourth day According to the Bible, Book of Genesis, chapter 1, verses , vegetation was created on the third day along with seed-bearing grasses, plants and trees; and further on as per verses , the sun was created on the fourth day.

How is it scientifically possible for the vegetation to have appeared without the presence of the sun, as has been stated in the Bible? The Sun and the Moon both Emit light According to the Bible both the sun and the moon emit their own light. In the Book of Genesis, chapter 1, verse 16 says, "And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night". Science tells us today that the moon does not have its own light.

Adam pbuh , Adam appeared on the earth approximately years ago: years between Adam pbuh and Abraham pbuh Approximately years between Abraham pbuh and Jesus pbuh years from Jesus pbuh till today These figures are further confused by the fact that the Jewish calendar is currently on or about years old.

There is sufficient evidence from archaeological and anthropological sources to suggest that the first human being on earth was present tens of thousands of years ago and not merely 5, years ago as is suggested by the Bible.

The description suggests that the event took place years after the creation of Adam pbuh or years before the birth of Abraham, at a time when Noah pbuh was years old. Thus the flood may have occurred in the 21st or 22nd Century B. This story of the flood, as given in the Bible, contradicts scientific evidence from archaelogical sources which indicate that the eleventh dynasty in Egypt and the third dynasty in Babylonia were in existence without any break in civilisation and in a manner totally unaffected by any major calamity which may have occurred in the 21st century B.

This contradicts the Biblical story that the whole world had been immersed in the flood water. Both scriptures agree that the Pharaoh drowned when he tried to pursue Moses pbuh and led the Israelites across a stretch of water that they crossed. But verily, many among mankind are heedless of Our Signs! Maurice Bucaille, after a thorough research proved that although Rameses II was known to have persecuted the Israelites as per the Bible, he actually died while Moses pbuh was taking refuge in Median.

In , the mummified body of Merneptah was found in the valley of Kings in Egypt. In , Dr. Maurice Bucaille with other doctors received permission to examine the Mummy of Merneptah, the findings of which proved that Merneptah probably died from drowning or a violent shock which immediately preceeded the moment of drowning.

Thus he embraced Islam. This is the revelation of the Book in which there is no doubt — from the Lord of the Worlds. Nay, it is the Truth from thy Lord, that thou mayest admonish a people to whom no warner has come before thee: in order that they may receive guidance.
