Proof of Prophet Muhammad(saw)'s Presence

I do respect your scholarly abilities and really appreciate your search for the truth but sometimes we make mistakes in doing so and start making blunders, this never happens intentionally but due to lack of knowledge . And knowledge is given by God All Mighty but the knowledge given to us is

Very little.

Surah Bani Israel (17:85)

"And the knowledge ye have been vouchsafed but little."

Now having this little knowledge we miscalculate and misjudge now coming to your article about the presence of the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) the most important thing is that in that issue we should not rely upon history or men made verifications or proofs, as history is only a slave of the historian.

In this context I am agree with you that all the histories are written and compiled by human not by the God.

In order to verify certain things we need specific perimeter and criteria but to verify a prophet or his prophet hood the required perimeters and criteria must not be made by human because the involvement of men make questions about authenticity, to verify a chemical we should not go to a milk shop.

My friend this is not the first time that you have doubts about a prophet, his prophet hood or presence the history goes back to the period of Prophet Adam (A.S). The followers of different prophets kept on asking verifications and proofs to justify the presence and prophet hood of a true prophet not only asking but have been asking their prophets to show miracles, and by the wish of God different prophets performed miracles to their respective followers, for your information all these miracles were not to prove the real and true God but to prove that the person showing the miracle was sent by the real God and to prove his presence as well.

Now in this regard I either don't trust any theologian or historian because they are not the most authentic. I need some authentic proof not by any human only a real God Himself can prove the presence and prophet hood of His prophet by some miracle. Is it possible? Yes it is possible; the miracle is there "The Holy Quran".

Now the question is that is Quran a miracle to prove the real and the True God? No, the answer is not because the miracles were always shown to prove that the person in connection is the real and true prophet sent by the True and the "All Mighty Allah", so in this case the Quran is the miracle to prove that the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) was the real and true prophet sent by the True God Himself.

Now in this case if the Quran is claiming to be a miracle then obviously this miracle is to prove and verify that the person to who it belongs to is really sent by the true God the All Mighty.

Remember this miracle is very unique because it not for only one occasion but remains a miracle for the years to come to prove the presence of the real prophet.

Question is why the Quran is claiming to be miracle let verify that first, my friend I have very little knowledge but a professor having knowledge like yours will be able to understand the reality.

1. The Quran is written in Arabic in very simple way so that everyone can understand it.

2. During that period in Arab there was no tradition of writing 'prose'.

3. The Quran seems it is 'prose' but it has rhetoric so I may say it is similar to 'poetry'.

4. The Quran seems that it is 'poetry' but doesn't follow all the criteria of poetry it is similar to 'prose' again.

5. The Quran seems it is all written in interrogative sentence but on the same time it looks an answer book for all.

6. The Quran seems it is a book of statements.

7. The Quran seems it is all written in imperative form and so many other reasons that it remains an enigma for scholars and linguistics.

Now you better try to produce something like that, this challenge is not from myself but the Author of the book the Lord Himself. In Quran it says.

1. Surah Baqarah ( 2:23)

And if you are any uncertainty about what We have revealed to Our servant then produce a Surah similar to it, and invite your witness except Allah, if you are truthful (in your claim).

2. Surah At-Toor (52 :33-34)

Or do they say that you have concocted it (the Quran). Nay; they do not believe then they must bring a new discourse to it if they are truthful.

Now I put everything in front of you the ball is in your court try it and do it according to the perimeter set by the Quran, the perimeters are as follows for your convenience.

1. Replicate the Quran's literary form.

2. Match the unique linguistic nature of the Quran.

3. Select and arrange words like that of the Quran.

4. Select and arrange similar grammatical particles.

5. Match the Quran's super eloquence and sound.

6. Equal the Quran's frequency of rhetorical devices.

7. Match the level of content and informativeness.

8. Equal the Quran's conciseness and flexibility.

Remove all the doubts from your mind and heart and always try to follow the true knowledge because knowledge is light and light is better than darkness.

If you got your verification then please pray for me.
