Hello Plato,

It is Shiite claims that Prophet died because of poison. We reject this claim because it is against Quran.

Rasool do not die because of his opponents. If we were to believe these stories as you have pasted here, we had no problem accepting the crucifixion of Jesus.

We check the validity of historical records regarding Muhammad (sws) and his sayings and actions from Quran, if Quran approves them, we have no problem accepting them and if Quran disapproves then they are simply rejected.

And the reason is Quran has come to us through the involvement of all Muslims from generation to generation. It has not been conveyed to us from one, two or few people.

Rasool is an Islamic term and there is no Rasool after Muhammad.

Since, you asked me a question that if you were from God, how would I decide that you are right?

I would decide it with my moral guidance which God has put inside me.

God judges people with intentions. I am guilty to God only when my intention is wrong.

Suppose you were truly from God, but I misjudge you and reject you, but my intention was not wrong and I was pure from my heart, then I am not guilty to God, because my intention was true.

However, if I am convinced from my heart that you are truly from God, but because of my own spiritual impurities like stubbornness, hatred, enmity, arrogance etc, I reject you; then I am guilty to God.

God gives the power to Rasool that he makes clear to everyone from heart (I again say from heart) that he is truly from God and even then if people reject Rasool, then they are guilty to God and deserve punishment.

So that people are left with no excuse or plea before God after the arrival of Rasool

(Quran 4:165)

This is why Quran says, that Jews of that time knows Muhammad is Rasool of God just like they know their own sons, mean they were fully convinced from their heart that he is from God.

Those to whom We have given the Book, recognize him, as they recognize their sons; but those who give loss to themselves, they do not believe.(Quran 6:20)
