Who Is Muhammad?

By Editorial Staff

Who is Muhammad? How do Muslims view Muhammad? Did he claim that he is God or a son of God?

What does the Quran say about him?

Muslims believe that the Prophet Muhammad is a human being. He was sent by God with a divine revelation, like the prophets before him; Jacob, Joseph, Moses, and Jesus (peace be them all).

In the following verse, we read what the Prophet of Islam was ordered to tell the people about himself:

Say, ‘I am only a human being, like you, to whom it has been revealed that your God is One. Anyone who fearsb to meet his Lord should do good deeds and give no one a share in the worship due to his Lord. (Al-Kahf 18:110)

In another verse, we read:

A Messenger has come to you from among yourselves. Your suffering distresses him: he is deeply concerned for you and full of kindness and mercy towards the believers. (At-Tawbah 9:128)

It was narrated that Ibn Mas`ud said a man came to the Prophet (peace be upon him), so he spoke to him, and he started to tremble with awe. He said to him: ‘Take it easy. I am not a king; I am just a man whose mother ate dried meat.’” (Ibn Majah)

This video clip introduces the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him). We hope that every seeker of truth reflect upon it with his heart and mind.
