Description from the publisher:
The institutionalized fallacy of the West that Muhammad was an imposter and that he himself authored or plagiarized the Quran from biblical literature is unacceptable in view of what the history of prophecy says about the prophets and their characteristics. The author of Muhammad the Prophet Par Excellence and the Divine Origin of the Quran refutes this longstanding disinformation effectively.
To do so, he traces the origin and development of prophecy from sources acknowledged by Jews, Christians, and Muslims alike. He highlights the common characteristics of prophets and then very objectively works out the Abrahamic norm accepted by all. It can be regarded as a universal touchstone to identify the true prophets. According to this syllogistic conclusion Muhammad cannot be denied prophethood since what authenticates all or any of the prophets, is also found to the highest degree in him. It also verifies his claim to being the bonafide recipient of the divine revelation – the Quran. As an inevitable corollary to this deduction, the arbitrary rejection of Muhammad as a Prophet amounts to rejecting all prophets.
