Muhammad – The Great Satanic Usurper!

It becomes apparent when one carefully examines the teachings of Islam that Muhammad was an antichrist whom the evil one set up to replace Christ in the hearts and minds of folks, specifically the Muslims who have been duped into looking to him for salvation.

In this post, I will list two ways in which Muhammad sought to usurp Christ.

First, Muhammad claimed that Allah would raise him to stand at the right side of Allah’s throne:

Narrated AbuHurayrah

The Prophet said, “I shall be clothed with one of the robes of Paradise and shall then stand at the right of the Throne, a place where no other creature than I shall stand.”

Tirmidhi transmitted it. The version on his authority in Jami’ al-Usul has “I shall be the first from whom the earth will be cleft open and I shall be clothed…..” (Al-Tirmidhi Hadith, Number 1519 http://www.alim.org/library/hadith/TIR/1520; bold emphasis mine)

Here’s another English version:

Jami` at-Tirmidhi

Chapters on Virtues

Narrated Abu Hurairah: that the Messenger of Allah said:

“I am the first for whom the earth will be split, and then I will be adorned with garments from the garments of Paradise. Then I will stand at the right of the Throne. No one from the creation will in that place other than I.”

Second, even though he candidly acknowledged that Jesus is the Word and Spirit of God, Muhammad still portrayed himself as being greater than Christ by claiming to be the beloved of Allah, and the first one to be authorized to intercede for the salvation of believers at the last day:

Jami` at-Tirmidhi

Chapters on Virtues

Narrated Ibn ‘Abbas:

that a group of people from the Companions of the Messenger of Allah sat waiting for him. He said: “Then he came out, such that when he came close to them, he heard them talking, and he heard what they were saying. So some of them said: ‘It’s amazing that Allah, the Mighty and Sublime, has taken a Khalil (close friend) from His creation. He took Ibrahim as a Khalil.’ And some of them said: ‘That is not more amazing than speaking to Musa, He spoke to him with real speech.’ And some said: ‘And ‘Eisa is the word of Allah and His Spirit.’ And some said: ‘Adam was chosen by Allah.’ So he came out upon them and said his Salam, and said: ‘I have heard your words, and your amazement that Ibrahim is the Khalil of Allah, and he is such, and that Musa is the one spoken to by Allah, and he is such, and that ‘Eisa is the spirit of Allah and His Word, and he is such, and that Adam was chosen by Allah, and he is such. Indeed I am the beloved of Allah and I am not boasting, and I am the carrier of the Banner of Praise on the Day of Judgement, and I am not boasting. And I am the first intercessor, and the first to have intercession accepted from him on the Day of Judgement, and I am not boasting. And I am the first to shake the rings of Paradise (meaning on the gates of Paradise) and so Allah will open it for me and admit me into it. And with me will be the poor people from the believers, and I am not boasting. And I am the most noble among the first ones and the last ones, and I am not boasting.”

Arabic reference: Book 49, Hadith 3976 (sunnah.com https://sunnah.com/urn/634780; underline emphasis mine)

Narrated Jabir ibn Abdullah

The Prophet said, “I am the leader (qa’id) of the messengers, and this is no boast; I am the seal of the prophets, and this is no boast; and I shall be the first to make intercession and the first whose intercession is accepted, and this is no boast.”

Darimi transmitted it. (Al-Tirmidhi Hadith, Number 1519 http://www.alim.org/library/hadith/TIR/1519)

Finally:

Abu Hurairah narrated: “Some meat was brought to the Prophet and a foreleg was presented to him, and he used to like it, so he bit from it. Then he said: ‘I will be the “Leader” of the people on the Day of Resurrection. Do you know why that is? Allah will gather the people, the first and the last, on one level ground where they will (all) be able to hear a caller, and all of them will be visible, and the sun will be brought near such that the people will suffer distress and trouble that they cannot tolerate nor bear. Then some people will say: “Don’t you see the state you have reached? Why don’t you look for a person who can intercede for you with your Lord? ” Some of them will say to others: “You should go to Adam.” So they will go to Adam and say, “You are the father of all mankind, Allah created you with His Own Hands, and breathed into you from His spirit (which He created for you) and ordered the angels to prostrate for you. Will you not intercede for us with your Lord? Don’t you see what has happened to us? Don’t you see the state we have reached?” On that Adam will reply, “Today my Lord has become angry such that He has never before been angry, and will never be thereafter. He forbade me (to eat from) the tree, but I disobeyed (Him), Myself! Myself! Myself! Go to somebody else; Go to Nuh.” They will go to Nuh and say: “O Nuh! You are the first among the Messengers to the people of the earth, and Allah named you a thankful slave. Will you not intercede for us with your Lord? Don’t you see what has happened to us? Don’t you see the state we have reached?” Nuh will say to them: “Today my Lord has become angry as He has never before been angry, and will never be thereafter. I had been given one supplication, and I supplicated against my own people. Myself! Myself! Myself! Go to someone else! Go to Ibrahim.” They will go to Ibrahim and say: “O Ibrahim! You are Allah’s Prophet and His Khalil among the people of the earth, so intercede for us with your Lord, don’t you see what has happened to us?” He will say: “Today my Lord has become angry as He has never before been angry and will never be thereafter. Indeed I uttered three lies.”– Abu Hayyyan (a narrator) mentioned them in his narration – “Myself! Myself! Myself! Go to someone else! Go to Musa.” So they will go to Musa and say: “O Musa! You are the Messenger of Allah who Allah distinguished above the people with His Message and His Speech, intercede for us with your Lord. Don’t you see what has happened to us?” So he will say “Today my Lord has become angry as He has never before been angry and will never be thereafter. Indeed I killed a person whom I was ordered not to kill. Myself! Myself! Myself! Go to someone else; Go to ‘Eisa.” They will go to ‘Eisa and say: “O ‘Eisa! You are the Messenger of Allah and His Word which He placed into Mariam, and a Spirit from Him, and you spoke to the people in the cradle. Intercede for us with your Lord. Don’t you see what has happened to us?” Then ‘Eisa will say: “Today my Lord has become angry as He has never before been angry and will never be thereafter.” HE WILL NOT MENTION A SIN, but will say: “Myself! Myself! Myself! Go to someone else! Go to Muhammad.” He said: ‘They will go to Muhammad and they say: “O Muhammad! You are the Messenger of Allah and the last of the Prophets, and your past and future sins have been pardoned. Will you not intercede for us with your Lord, don’t you see what has happened to us?” Then I will depart until I come to under the Throne to fall prostrating before my Lord. Then Allah will guide me to such praises and beautiful statements of glorification which He did not guide anyone to before me. Then He will say: “O Muhammad! Raise your head. Ask, so that you may be granted and intercede so that your intercession may be accepted.” I will raise my head and say: “O Lord! My Ummah! O Lord! My Ummah! O Lord! My Ummah!” He will say: “O Muhammad! Let those of your Ummah who have no accounts enter the gate on the right among the gates of Paradise, and they shall share in the gates other than that with the people.’” Then he said: ‘By the One in Whose Hand is my soul! What is between every two gate-posts in Paradise is as what is between Makkah and Hajar, and what is between Makkah and Busra.’”

Now contrast these blasphemous assertions with what the Lord Jesus and his inspired emissaries taught.

First, it is Christ, not Muhammad, who is the beloved of God since he is God’s unique Son whom the Father has loved and adored from before creation:

“It came to pass in those days that Jesus came from Nazareth of Galilee, and was baptized by John in the Jordan. And immediately, coming up from the water, He saw the heavens parting and the Spirit descending upon Him like a dove. Then a voice came from heaven, ‘You are My beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.’” Mark 1:9-11

“Now after six days Jesus took Peter, James, and John, and led them up on a high mountain apart by themselves; and He was transfigured before them. His clothes became shining, exceedingly white, like snow, such as no launderer on earth can whiten them. And Elijah appeared to them with Moses, and they were talking with Jesus. Then Peter answered and said to Jesus, ‘Rabbi, it is good for us to be here; and let us make three tabernacles: one for You, one for Moses, and one for Elijah’— because he did not know what to say, for they were greatly afraid. And a cloud came and overshadowed them; and a voice came out of the cloud, saying, ‘This is My beloved Son. Hear Him!’” Mark 9:2-7

For the Father loves the Son, and shows Him all things that He Himself does; and He will show Him greater works than these, that you may marvel.” John 5:20

“Father, I desire that they also whom You gave Me may be with Me where I am, that they may behold My glory which You have given Me; for You loved Me before the foundation of the world.” John 17:24

In fact, all things were specifically created and exist for Christ because he is God’s beloved Son:

“He has delivered us from the power of darkness and conveyed us into the kingdom of the Son of His love, in whom we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins. He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. For by Him all things were created that are in heaven and that are on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers. All things were created through Him and FOR Him. And He is before all things, and in Him all things consist. And He is the head of the body, the church, who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, that in all things He may have the preeminence. For it pleased the Father that in Him all the fullness should dwell, and by Him to reconcile all things to Himself, by Him, whether things on earth or things in heaven, having made peace through the blood of His cross.” Colossians 1:13-20

Secondly, it is Christ, not Muhammad, who is at the right hand of God on the throne where all creation is in subjection to him. And Jesus is the One who intercedes for all believers, not Muhammad:

“Jesus said, ‘I am. And you will see the Son of Man sitting at the right hand of the Power, and coming with the clouds of heaven.’” Mark 14:62

“So then, after the Lord had spoken to them, He was received up into heaven, and sat down at the right hand of God. And they went out and preached everywhere, the Lord working with them and confirming the word through the accompanying signs. Amen.” Mark 16:19-20

“But he, being full of the Holy Spirit, gazed into heaven and saw the glory of God, and Jesus standing at the right hand of God, and said, ‘Look! I see the heavens opened and the Son of Man standing at the right hand of God!’” Acts 7:55-56

“What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him up for us all, how shall He not with Him also freely give us all things? Who shall bring a charge against God’s elect? It is God who justifies. Who is he who condemns? It is Christ who died, and furthermore is also risen, who is even at the right hand of God, who also makes intercession for us.” Romans 8:31-34

“Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ… to the praise of the glory of His grace, by which He made us accepted in the Beloved… and what is the exceeding greatness of His power toward us who believe, according to the working of His mighty power which He worked in Christ when He raised Him from the dead and seated Him at His right hand in the heavenly places, far above all principality and power and might and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this age but also in that which is to come. And He put all things under His feet, and gave Him to be head over all things to the church, which is His body, the fullness of Him who fills all in all.” Ephesians 1:3, 6, 19-23

“For in Him dwells all the fullness of the Godhead bodily; and you are complete in Him, who is the head of all principality and power… If then you were raised with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ is, sitting at the right hand of God… For you died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God. When Christ who is our life appears, then you also will appear with Him in glory.” Colossians 2:9-10, 3:1, 3-4

“God, who at various times and in various ways spoke in time past to the fathers by the prophets, has in these last days spoken to us by His Son, whom He has appointed heir of all things, through whom also He made the worlds; who being the brightness of His glory and the express image of His person, and upholding all things by the word of His power, when He had by Himself purged our sins, sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high… But when He again brings the firstborn into the world, He says: ‘Let all the angels of God worship Him.’… But to the Son He says: ‘Your throne, O God, is forever and ever; A scepter of righteousness is the scepter of Your kingdom. You have loved righteousness and hated lawlessness; Therefore God, Your God, has anointed You With the oil of gladness more than Your companions.’… But to which of the angels has He ever said: ‘Sit at My right hand, Till I make Your enemies Your footstool’?” Hebrews 1:1-3, 6, 8-9, 13

“Now this is the main point of the things we are saying: We have such a High Priest, who is seated at the right hand of the throne of the Majesty in the heavens, a Minister of the sanctuary and of the true tabernacle which the Lord erected, and not man.” Hebrews 8:1-2

“But this Man, after He had offered one sacrifice for sins forever, sat down at the right hand of God,” Hebrews 10:12

“looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.” Hebrews 12:2

“There is also an antitype which now saves us—baptism (not the removal of the filth of the flesh, but the answer of a good conscience toward God), through the resurrection of Jesus Christ, who has gone into heaven and is at the right hand of God, angels and authorities and powers having been made subject to Him.” 1 Peter 3:21-22

“who has come, not according to the law of a fleshly commandment, but according to the power of an endless life… Also there were many priests, because they were prevented by death from continuing. But He, because He continues forever, has an unchangeable priesthood. Therefore He is also able to save to the uttermost those who come to God through Him, since He always lives to make intercession for them. For such a High Priest was fitting for us, who is holy, harmless, undefiled, separate from sinners, and has become higher than the heavens; who does not need daily, as those high priests, to offer up sacrifices, first for His own sins and then for the people’s, for this He did once for all when He offered up Himself. For the law appoints as high priests men who have weakness, but the word of the oath, which came after the law, appoints the Son who has been perfected forever.” Hebrews 7:16, 23-28

“To him who overcomes I will grant to sit with Me on My throne, as I also overcame and sat down with My Father on His throne.” Revelation 3:21

Moreover, Christ will be the One who will judge all creation in order to determine their everlasting fate:

“For the Son of Man will come in the glory of His Father with His angels, and then He will reward each according to his works.” Matthew 16:27 – cf. 25:31-46

“For the Father judges no one, but has committed all judgment to the Son, that all should honor the Son just as they honor the Father. He who does not honor the Son does not honor the Father who sent Him.” John 5:22-23

“The word which God sent to the children of Israel, preaching peace through Jesus Christ—He is Lord of all— that word you know, which was proclaimed throughout all Judea, and began from Galilee after the baptism which John preached: how God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and with power, who went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil, for God was with Him. And we are witnesses of all things which He did both in the land of the Jews and in Jerusalem, whom they killed by hanging on a tree. Him God raised up on the third day, and showed Him openly, not to all the people, but to witnesses chosen before by God, even to us who ate and drank with Him after He arose from the dead. And He commanded us to preach to the people, and to testify that it is He who was ordained by God to be Judge of the living and the dead. To Him all the prophets witness that, through His name, whoever believes in Him will receive remission of sins.” Acts 10:36-43

“For to this end Christ died and rose and lived again, that He might be Lord of both the dead and the living. But why do you judge your brother? Or why do you show contempt for your brother? For we shall all stand before the judgment seat of Christ. For it is written: ‘As I live, says the Lord, Every knee shall bow to Me, And every tongue shall confess to God.’ So then each of us shall give account of himself to God.” Romans 14:9-12

For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, that each one may receive the things done in the body, according to what he has done, whether good or bad.” 2 Corinthians 5:10

It is, thus, crystal clear that Muhammad was inspired by the evil one to rob the Lord Jesus of his unique status and roles for the express purpose of leading mankind away from their only hope of salvation.
