Muhammad’s Attempt to Supersede Jesus

2021 Vol. 5: Sept/Oct

Muhammad holds the most honored place of all humans in Islam. The Islamic confession of faith states: “There is no deity except Allah, and Muhammad is the Apostle of Allah.” This statement boldly names Muhammad in the same breath with Allah. Upon entering a mosque, a worshipper will usually see the names of Allah and Muhammad written together on the left and right walls in beautiful Arabic calligraphy, emphasizing the importance of both names to all Muslims.
