Convert Nabeel Qureshi Says There Is No Basis to Claim Muhammad Is a Prophet 08/30/2016

While it is widely believed that the Muhammad was born in Mecca around 570 CE, Qureshi explained that there is no archeological evidence that Mecca even existed before the beginning of the eighth century.

Qureshi also decried arguments by Muslims that Muhammad's high moral character should lead people to believe that he is a prophet and messenger of God. But based on what has been written and is known about Muhammad, Qureshi says that it is hard to imagine someone with Muhammad's moral character being a prophet of God.

"He has got spiritual issues. He thinks black magic is cast on him. He thinks Satan has given him verses that are part of the Quran. These are issues. He is a man who is very disposed to violence. He says that the best thing in the world would be to be martyred while fighting in jihad," Qureshi said.

"The only thing that would make him want to leave Heaven, would be martyrdom again in jihad. He speaks very disparagingly of women, saying they have half of the mental acumen of men, and that the inhabitants of Hell will be for the most part women because they are ungrateful to their husbands. He allows for wife beating. Of course, the Quran allows for wife beating."

Nabeel Qureshi is a speaker with Ravi Zacharias International Ministries.
