The Origin of the Qur’an: Demonic or Divine? | Many Prophets-One Message

A popular attack against the Qur’an is the claim that Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him, was inspired by occult forces such as the Devil or demons. This claim is typically put forward by Christian apologists and missionaries. Now the obvious response is to point out that such an argument is self-defeating, as Muslims can easily make the same lazy accusation against the Bible. However, with this article I wanted a unique approach to refuting this claim, one that involves comparing the Qur’an to a real work associated with the occult. This is a practical approach that will highlight just how wrong such a claim really is.

Thanks to brother Stew for suggesting this article.  It is an interesting comparison between the light that is the Quran and the darkness of idolatrous man-made religions like Thelema and its false messenger Aleister Crowley.

  1. , as Muslims can easily make the same lazy accusation against the Bible. ”

    the following isn’t “lazy accusation” it has substance to it :

    It definitely says they were afraid. “They went out quickly and fled [ephugon] from the tomb for they were tromos kai ekstatsis. Tromos means “trembling” and ekstasis means something knocked out of its normal state, displaced or cast down. More figuratively it means knocked outside of one’s normal state of mind, i.e. “amazed.” “gobsmacked.” It can also mean”trance.” Ekstasis is the word we get “ecstasy” and “ecstatic” from, although it did not have the same meaning of bliss that it has in English, it’s more like “not oneself.” “Knocked for a loop.”

    It says “they did not say anything to anybody” and ends with that. I don’t think that sentence or ending would make any sense at all if Mark really meant the reader to understand that they told people at all, much less that they ran straight to the disciples and told them.

      @ tony sorry I’m not following you. What does this have to do with extremist Christians claiming the Prophet(saw) was is inspired by Satan?

    salaam brother

    christian missionaries have said that muhammad pbuh encounter in the cave was from “unholy” forces, i thought i play the same game and ask about the encounter the women had with this unknown man in the tomb. the worse thing is that the text ends with “they said NOTHING to anyone for they were afraid”
