arguments aside, the greatest testimony to Mohammad's (pbuh)
prophethood comes from the faith of those nearest to him. His
best friend embraced Islam, his wife embraced Islam, his
cousin and his slave embraced Islam. Some of his companions
were always with him call it 24/7 surveillance if you will. In
case you missed the point every aspect of his life is covered,
from his wife we learn how he was in bed, from his slave we
learn how he treated them, from his companions it is difficult
to make out who he loved more, the Salman of Persia or the Abu
Bakr of Mecca.
Giving up our prejudices is not easy. We make a
thousand and one excuses to cling to what we believe and cherish. Even
if a thousand evidences are given that Muhammad was not a messenger of
God, Muslims find one straw to cling to and convince themselves that
Your excuse is that if Muhammad was a false
prophet, his close friends and relatives would have noticed it.
You are wrong. We have many cases of real
charlatans whose followers who basically lived with them on daily
basis fell prey to their lies and believed in whatever they said.
Cases abound. I only give you a few examples:
Jim Jones convinced
normal decent people that he is the Messiah. He convinced them to
leave their families and follow him to his ď
Ē in the middle of the Jungles. He convinced the Government of New
Guyana to give him 300 acres of land for free. He convinced his men to
carry guns and kill anyone who dissented. These men shot and killed a
Senator and his guards and then he convinced his followers to drink
poisoned coolaid and 900 of them willingly did what he told them and
How do you explain this much loyalty and faith?
gathered his followers in Branch Davidian compound outside of
. They were with him every moment of the day. They armed themselves
because he told them so. They allowed their teenage daughters to sleep
with him, much like Abu Bakr allowed Muhammad to sleep with his
underage daughter. They shot and killed four ATF agents and booby
trapped the compound and blew it causing their own deaths and the
deaths of all their families rather than surrender. If that is not
loyalty what it is? 90 people died in that incident.
Order of the Solar
apocalyptic cult claimed 74 victims in three bizarre mass suicide
rituals. Most of the members of the sect were highly educated and
well-to-do individuals. Many of them had doctorates.
The two known leaders
of the group were Luc Jouret, a Belgian homeopathic doctor, and Joseph
di Mambro, a wealthy businessman. They were like Muhammad and Abu Bakr
of this cult. They too believed in their insanity and they too
The cult gave great
importance to the sun. Their fiery ritual murder-suicides are meant to
take members of the sect to a new world on the star
"Sirius." To assist with the trip, several of the victims,
including some children, were shot in the head, asphyxiated with black
plastic bags and/or poisoned.
Luc and Joseph wrote,
in a letter delivered after their deaths that they were "leaving
this earth to find a new dimension of truth and absolution, far from
the hypocrisies of this world." Doesnít this sound eerily
familiar to what Muhammad preached?
How can you
explain the devotion of these people to their sick belief? Do you deny
the conviction of their leaders to their cause?
On March 26, 1997, 39 members of "Heaven's Gate"
decided to "shed their containers" and get on a
companion craft hiding in the tail of the Hale-Bopp comet.
The Heaven Gaters died in three shifts over a
three-day period after celebrating their last meal on earth. 15
cultist died the first day, 15 the second and the remaining nine the
third day. As one set of cultist ingested the poison, a lethal dose of
phenobarbital mixed in with pudding and/or applesauce and chased with
a shot of vodka, they would lie down and another cultist would use a
plastic bag to speed up the dying. A frighteningly anal-retentive mass
suicide, the cultist would clean up after each round of killing.
Before the last two killed themselves, they took out the trash leaving
the rented mansion in perfect order. Wanting to be helpful even after
dead, all bodies had some sort of identification. Strangely, though,
they also had five-dollar bill and change in their pockets and small
suitcases neatly tucked under the cots and beds.
Also take a look at the story of John
de Ruilter, the man whose followers believe to be greater than
Jesus, allow him to have orgies with their daughters. One of his
followers is a good standing psychiatrist who swears he is "absolutely
We have thousands of cases such as these. The
cult leaders are charismatic, they are persuasive and they are
convinced of their own cause. They are not normal people, they are
psychopaths. They are very different from ordinary people and that is
why they stand out. They are often intelligent people, but their
reality and fantasy are mixed up. They canít distinguish between
what is real and what is imagined. They are the first to believe in
their own lies. This conviction fools their close friends and
relatives that they must know something and have access to a divine
source of knowledge.
Muhammad was no different. He was a psychopath. I
have shown that in an article. Muhammad, Hitler, Stalin, or other
charismatic cult leaders were not stupid. They were highly intelligent
but they were insane. It was this insanity that convinced people to
follow them and commit all sorts of crimes.
Now you are basing your entire faith on the
faith of a bunch of gullible people, such as Abu Bakr, Omar and
Khadija or Ali who was a ruthless murderer and a kid when believed in
Muhammad; and like them follow a psychopath mesmerized by the absurd
logic that if these people followed Muhammad then Muhammad must have
been indeed something special.
It is insane that a billion people follow a
psychopath and all of them reason like you. Each one of them bases his
faith on the credulity of others and all of them like sheep follow
each other. If all the sheep go one way then that must be the right
way to go.
Someone must stop this insanity. I am asking you
to read the Quran, read the hadiths and the history of Muhammad and
use your own brain. When you do that it becomes clear that Muhammad
was not a messenger of God but a criminal psychopath. This insanity
has survived too long. It must be stopped now. This madness is getting
out of hand and is threatening mankind. Enough with insanity! It is
time that you wake up and see the truth with your own eyes and not
with the eyes of Abu Bakr, Omar and Khadijah or Ali who were a bunch
of idiots and deluded cultists. Discern the truth with your own eyes
not with the eyes of others. Judge the facts with your own brain, not
with the brains of others. Donít be a sheep following other sheep.
