Muhammad and The Satanic Verses

In Islam Muslims are taught that Muhammad was the greatest of all the prophets, and that he was the greatest man who ever lived. Sadly their desire to shower their prophet with praise has led to utter exaggeration of who and what Muhammad brought to the Muslim people.

In this article we’re going to look at the infamous Satanic revelations Muhammad recited to his followers and the pagans.

The Biography Of Muhammad

We read in the book The Life of Muhammad by Ibn Ishaq, Sirat Rasul Allah, pp. 165-166:

Have you thought of al-Lat and al-Uzza and Manat, the third, the other Satan when he was meditating upon it, and desiring to bring it (reconciliation) to his people, put upon his tongue “these are the exalted Gharaniq whose intercession is approved.” When Quraysh heard that, they were delighted and greatly pleased at the way in which he spoke of their gods and they listened to him; while the believers were holding that what their prophet brought them from their Lord was true, not suspecting a mistake or a vain desire or a slip, and when he reached the prostration and the end of the Sura in which he prostrated himself the Muslims prostrated themselves when their prophet prostrated confirming what he brought and obeying his command, and the polytheists of Quraysh and others who were in the mosque prostrated when they heard the mention of their gods, so that everyone in the mosque believer and unbeliever prostrated, except al-Walid b. al-Mughira who was an old man who could not do so, 80 he took a handful of dirt from the valley and bent over it. Then the people dispersed and Quraysh went out, delighted at what had been said about their gods, saying, ‘Muhammad has spoken of our gods in splendid fashion. He alleged in what he read that they are the exalted Ghariniq whose intercession is approved.

Muhammad wanted to bring the Muslim people and the tribe of Quraysh together, Satan took the opportunity to put into Muhammad’s mouth the satanic verses and promoted polytheism. The tribe of Quraysh worshipped multiple gods one of those gods being Allah, notice the Muslims and people of Quraysh prostrated worshipping false gods.

Jibril’s Response to Muhammad

Then Gabriel (Jibril) came to the apostle and said, ‘What have you done, Muhammad You have read to these people something I did not bring you from God and you have said what He did not say to you. The apostle was bitterly grieved and was greatly in fear of God. p. 166:

According to the Sira, Muhammad couldn’t even tell what was Qur’an or not. When Muslims bring the challenge to bring a Surah like the Qur’an they don’t realise that Satan already brought revelation like the Qur’an.

From the Hadith Sources

The following Hadith agrees with the Sira, in the following Hadith we’re told that Muslims, pagans and Jinns prostrated (worshipped) together according to al-Bukhari.

Narrated Ibn Abbas: The Prophet performed a prostration when he finished reciting Surat-an-Najm, and all the Muslims and pagans and Jinns and human beings prostrated along with him. — Sahih al-Bukhari 4862

According to al-Tabari

When the Messenger of God saw how his tribe turned their backs on him and was grieved to see them shunning the message he had brought to them from God, he longed in his soul that something would come to him from God which would reconcile him with his tribe. With his love for his tribe and his eagerness for their welfare it would have delighted him if some of the difficulties which they made for him could have been smoothed out, and he debated with himself and fervently desired such an outcome. Then God revealed: “By the Star when it sets, “, and when he came to the words: “Have you considered El-Lat and El-‘Uzza and Manat the third, the other?”, Satan cast onto his tongue, because of his inner debates, and what he desired to bring to his people, the words, “Those are the high-flying cranes; verily their intercession is accepted with approval”, Then Gabriel came to the Messenger of God and said, “Muhammad, what have you done? You have recited to the people that which I did not bring you from God, and you have said that which was not said to you.” Then the Messenger of God was much grieved and feared God greatly, but God sent down a revelation to him (Qur’an 22:52), for He was merciful to him, (The History of al-Tabari vol. 6, page 108, 109)

According to The Qur’an

The following ayat provides information that a follower of Allah is protected, whoever doesn’t follow Allah is not protected. Muhammad was under the control and authority of Satan, because Allah was unable to protect Muhammad as Satan was able to put satanic revelations in Muhammad’s mouth.

“Certainly, you shall have no authority over My slaves, except those who follow you of the Ghawin (Mushrikun and those who go astray, criminals, polytheists, and evil-doers, etc.). — Surah 15:42

According to the Qur’an Muhammad was a Mushrikun.

Never have We sent a single prophet or apostle before you with whose wishes Satan did not tamper. But God abrogates the interjections of Satan and confirms His own revelations. — Surah 22:52

If Allah needs to cancel what Satan threw into the revelation, this means Satan was successful in putting false revelation in the Qur’an. On the other hand when we look in the Bible none of the prophets had gave satanic verses. A challenge to any Muslim is to bring evidence of Moses, Isaiah, Jeremiah any prophet of their choosing, prove that they brought satanic revelations. Only Muhammad was given false revelations from Satan because Muhammad is a false prophet.

Conclusion

From reading just a small amount of the Islamic sources we can come to the conclusion that Muhammad was controlled by Satan to the extent that he gave false revelations. If this is the case what else is false in the Qur’an and how can we know if anything in the Qur’an is true? Muhammad was subjected to the will of Satan as he had authority over Muhammad even though the Qur’an says Satan has no authority over the slave of Allah.

Lastly, no other prophet ever delivered satanic verses in the Bible, therefore, we can safely say that Muhammad was not a prophet from God. In fact he was a false prophet from Satan.
