The Choice-Islam and Christianity vol.1 page 17 by Ahmed Deedat says,

History tells us that Muhummed was forty years of age. He was in a cave some three miles north of the city of Mecca. It was the 27th night of the Muslim month of Ramadaan. In the cave the Archangel Gabriel commands him in his mother tongue: "READ! or PROCLAIM! or RECITE!" Muhummed is terrified and in his bewilderment replies: 'I AM NOT LEARNED!" The angel commands him a second time with the same result. For the third time the angel continues:

Now, Muhummed, grasps, that what was required of him was to repeat! to rehearse! And he repeats the words as they were put into his mouth:

"READ! IN THE NAME OF THY LORD AND CHERISHER, WHO CREATED-CREATED MAN, FROM A CLOT OF CONGEALED BLOOD: READ! AND THY LORD IS MOST BOUNTIFUL,-HE WHO TAUGHT THE PEN, TAUGHT MAN THAT WHICH HE KNEW NOT."

These are the first 5 verses which were revealed to Muhummed which now occupy the beginning of the 96th chapter of the Holy Quran.

Immediately the angel had departed, Muhummed rushed to his home. Terrified and sweating all over he asked his beloved wife Khaddija to 'cover him up'!

Analysis:

1) Muhummed met Angel Gabriel. ..

Question: " Was that really Angel Gabriel who spoke to Muhummed?"

Answer: 2Co 11:14 And no wonder, for even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light.

2) Angel Gabriel revealed the Quran to Muhummed...

Question: Was Angel Gabriel's message to Muhummed geniune? Did Muhummed tested it? Was he so sure it was from God? Did he had the confirmation and assurance?"

Answer: 1Jo 4:1 Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, for many false prophets have gone out into the world.

3) When Muhummed recited the words, the angel left him...

Q: After reciting the verses was Muhummed from that point onwards considered as a prophet in an instance? Did Muhummed then pass the test as a geniune prophet of God?

Answer: Moses talked directly to God (Exodus 3:4), Abraham (Gen.12:9) Elijah (1 Kings 19:9) and other Biblical characters while Muhummed only spoke to Angel Gabriel as his only main source of revelation therefore he did not passed the test of the prophets and was not considered either of the true followers of God.

4) Immediately the angel left Muhummed terrified and sweating all over...

Q: Why was he then terrified if that angel was from God? What kind of spirit did manifested on him-fear?

A: 2Ti 1:7 for God gave us a spirit not of fear but of power and love and self-control.

Therefore Muhummed was decieved by a spirit of fear, a demon, decieving himself, and decieving generations to generations preventing people to come to the true source of salvation-Jesus Christ our Lord and Saviour.

Muhummed made a religion and was a great tribal leader like Moses and the others they had battles and won many wars with swords but Jesus came not to establish a religion but a 'relationship' between the reconcilation of God and men. Jesus was a picture of the true character of God-A Loving God, a Humble God and a Merciful and Forgiving God. His Death on the cross did not made him infamous but it showed his great and mighty power over death and brings life and truth to all mankind.

Jesus for me is the true and living God. And Muhummed, Confucious, Hitler, Alexander and all those great men were bones in the history of mankind. but the King of kings and Lord of lords lives and will reign forever

Rom 14:11

Someday all the world will see that Jesus is not a prophet, Jesus is truly God.

Jesus Christ is my Lord and Saviour, my God.
