I posed this question to our dear mansoor rabina yansuruhu akthar wa akthar

9. Are you aware that I changed my name to Muhammad just like Muhammad your beloved whose name was Qutham and his kunya was Abul Qasim. So do you think that the name of Muhammad in the Bible might be my name after all Allah also spoke to me via an angel?

And this is his reply

>9) A dog cannot claim that I have changed my name and call me elephant now!!!

Elephant? Is this Muhammad's new name? and would I find it in the Bible or the Hindu or Buddhist holy books?

>There is a very big criteria for Prophet-hood which you cannot follow…Dhimi…you are only making me laugh with your ultimate ignorance.

But I swear by the moon and the sun that orbit the flat earth (very Quranic so far) that Allah spoke to me via an angel called Gabriel

Snip more drivel

> .After his grandfather's death, Muhammad was taken into the household of his father's brother, Abu Talib. Sometimes, Abu Talib would take Muhammad with him on his travels with merchant caravans. On one such journey they stopped at a place named Bostra, on the way to Syria.

ROTFL It is called Bosra and it is IN Syria and not on the way to Syria. And what is that Bostra? Is it Pakistani Arabic?

>At Bostra there lived a Christian monk named Bahira.

Really? Are you aware that the word for monk in Syriac is: bahira? So let me guess Muhammad met

1. Bahira the monk

2. Monk the monk

3. Or monk the bahira

4. Or bahira the bahira

So which one is it? and if Muslims had no clue that Cyrus was al-muqawqas then it is not surprising that they had no clue that the word bahira means monk

And how come the extant Syriac and Arabic language sources in their first 150 years after the death of Muhammad are silent about such story (see Hoyland survey)? Could it be because it never happened?

More Islamic delusions

>He lived there alone, studying old books and manuscripts which had been passed down to him from generations of monks who had lived there before him, all of whom were scholars of the scriptures.

This is funny but on my trip to Bosra Syria I also met a Syrian monk or Bahira and he told me that Allah will speak to me via an angel called Gabriel and that my new name Muhammad is the Muhammad/Ahmad in the Bible et voila

But I guess if you believe that a caravan raider and an Arabian warlord spoke to Allah via an angel called Gabriel you can believe anything
