The Hadith’s are the saying’s of Muhammad called Sunnah, the Hadith are second only to the Qur’ān in authority followed and practiced by Muslims. A Muslim must believe in the Hadith in order to be a considered a Muslim.
In the following Hadith by Sahih Muslim we read that “The bell is the musical instrument of the Satan” Why is a bell claimed to be an instrument of Satan is beyond me and makes no sense but that’s what their own books say.
According to the Sahih Muslim 2114 the bell is from Satan this is interesting because there’s another Hadith which says Muhammad received Qur’ān as the sound of a bell. This Hadith is also found in Sahih Muslim it tells us that Muhammad receives “wahi (inspiration)” and that “At times it comes to me like the ringing of a bell”.
Putting the two Hadith’s together it’s not hard to figure out that if bells are from Satan and Muhammad received Qur’ān in the sound of bells logically speaking can only mean he’s receiving satanic inspiration in the form of Qur’ān. This makes sense taking into account the Qur’ān says Satan puts words into the mouth of Muhammad which made its way into the Qur’ān. We can find it in Qur’ān 22 verse 52
We also have the account from Ibn Hisham which speaks about Muhammad once delivering revelation promoting polytheism. Muhammad claimed that Satan tricked him into delivering the “Satanic Verses”. Here’s the story, according to Ibn Ishaq’s Sirat Rasul Allah (the earliest biography on Muhammad). I’ll also include the link for your own reading.
Now the apostle was anxious for the welfare of his people, wishing to attract them as far as he could. . . . When the apostle saw that his people turned their backs on him and he was pained by their estrangement from what he brought them from God he longed that there should come to him from God a message that would reconcile his people to him. Because of his love for his people and his anxiety over them it would delight him if the obstacle that made his task so difficult could be removed. . . . Then God sent down “By the star when it sets your comrade errs not and is not deceived, he speaks not from his own desire,” and when he reached His words “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 to his people, put upon his tongue “these are the exalted Gharaniq [Numidian cranes] whose intercession is approved.” When the 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 . . . Then the people dispersed and the 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 Gharaniq whose intercession is approved.”
The news reached the prophet’s companions who were in Abyssinia, it being reported that Quraysh had accepted Islam, so some men started to return while others remained behind. Then Gabriel 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. So God sent down (a revelation), for He was merciful to him, comforting him and making light of the affair and telling him that every prophet and apostle before him desired as he desired and wanted what he wanted and Satan interjected something into his desires as he had on his tongue. So God annulled what Satan had suggested and God established His verses, i.e. you are just like the prophets and apostles. Then God sent down: “We have not sent a prophet or apostle before you but when he longed Satan cast suggestions in his longing. But God will annul what Satan has suggested. Then God will establish his verses, God being knowing and wise.” (Ibn Ishaq, pp. 165-166)
After reading this what’s the take-home? (1) Muhammad desired to reconcile his people bringing them together. (2) Satan took advantage of Muhammad desires and put demonic revelation into the mouth of Muhammad. (3) Muhammad didn’t recognise this was from Satan and delivered the Satanic verses. (4) The Quraysh was happy that Muhammad was promoting polytheism Ibn Hisham says “When the Quraysh heard that, they were delighted and greatly pleased at the way in which he spoke of their gods and they listened to him” (5) Muhammad along with the Muslims and the Quraysh prostrated together in worship. (6) Jibril (angel Gabriel) comes to Muhammad telling him what he recited was not from Allah but Satan.
Here’s the question how can Muslims believe in a satanic prophet who couldn’t recognise the difference between revelation from Allah or Shaitan? If it’s so easy for Satan to put into Muhammad’s mouth demonic revelation how much more of the Qur’ān is from Satan? It’s safe to say all of it is from Satan remember the Hadith “The bell is the musical instrument of the Satan” and Muhammad receives “wahi (inspiration)” and that “At times it comes to me like the ringing of a bell”. Just from this evidence alone can we conclude that Allah is Satan, this is why Muhammad couldn’t tell the difference between the two.
Lastly, the Qur’ān says if Muhammad is a slave of Allah then Satan wouldn’t have authority over Muhammad. But we clearly see that Satan did have authority over him putting into his mouth satanic verses. We’ll end with the Qur’ānic verse proving Muhammad is a false prophet from Satan.
The Qur’ānic verse is saying only those who don’t belong to Allah are deviators, this would mean Muhammad is a deviator according to their own book. Muslims leave Islam and come into the arms of Jesus Christ, He’s waiting to forgive you all your sins.

You make very compelling points. Thank you.
