Are you sure it was Gabriel?

God in deuteronomy gave us a way to identify true prophets from false ones. Muhammad FAILED that test. Another thing that disqualifies him is his behavior. After reading the hadith, one becomes more convinced that Muhammad could not have been sent by God....... All these things pretty much disqualify him as a prophet.

He claimed to have received his revelation from an angel of light (i.e Gabriel) but Gabriel is not known as the angel of light. Let's see what the apostle Paul said about the angel of light.

"I am concerned that just as Eve was deceived and beguiled by the serpent's cunning, your minds may someday be corrupted. For if someone comes and preaches another Yahshua who is different, if you receive another spirit, or hear a different Gospel, you may be susceptible. I may not possess eloquent speech or be an Apostle who requires your obedience, but I know what is true and have manifest it to you…. The truth of Christ is in me. And I will continue doing this in order to cut the ground from under those who would seize the opportunity to boast about. For such men are false prophets, deceitful teachers, masquerading as messengers of God. And no wonder, for Satan transfigures and disguises himself into an angel of light [i.e., Satan pretends to be Gabriel]." (2 Corinthians 11)

So you see, a true follower of Christ has to reject Muhammad's claims. Besides according to the Bible God would have not sent someone who thinks eating flies is good medicine.
Submitting....
