|2.||AUDIO: Did Prophet Muhammad really make a false
Prophecy? Using Encyclopedia Britannica, I
have refuted Shamoun's dubious sources, and proved that the Noble Quran never
made a false prophecy. Also, using Luke
9:23-27, Mark 13:1-37, 1 Peter 4:7-8, Hebrews 9:26, Matthew 24:43-45 and Luke 12:40,
I have demonstrated that Jesus made ample false prophecies regarding the Hour and his
second coming. Also, using many verses from the Bible's both the
Old and New Testaments, I demonstrated and proved that the Bible clearly
declares that the earth is flat; it is standing on pillars; it doesn't move; it does not
rotate around itself nor does it swim in space - clearly and overwhelmingly contradicting
science. I also gave Shamoun the following challenges:
Quran's correct prophecy of defeat of Romans
Abdul Haleem & Osama Abdallah
The Quranic Prophecy of the upcoming victory of the Romans is compared with the Bible in the following table. The following was taken from www.answering-christianity.com/trinity_crucified.htm:
They thought Jesus
was claiming to be GOD:
They thought Jesus was thinking he was GOD. Here is how Jesus answered them:
The context here is that Jesus was forgiving sins by Allah Almighty's Permission. Jewish priests in the Old Testament and John the Baptist were also allowed to forgive sins: Leviticus 4:31, Mark 1:4, Luke 7:30 (those who rejected the baptism rejected the counsel of GOD). So the blaspheming part was they thought that he was claiming that he was GOD Almighty. Jesus responded to this. So trinity remains a lie and Jesus himself directly refuted it.
Jesus had no power over his Miracles. They were all given to him by GOD Almighty on limited occasions. Jesus thanked GOD Almighty for every Miracle. He gave thanks for every Miracle: John 11:38-42, Matthew 15:35-37, Luke 22:14-20, Matthew 11:25, Luke 10:21. He sought permission from Allah Almighty before performing them. Otherwise, he was utterly powerless! He had no Miracle except what GOD Almighty gave him. And they were limited, not infinite. Jesus also said:
Jesus Crying for the death of his friend:
Notice in John 11:38:
John 11 (WYC)
John 11 (NET)
Jesus was not putting on a false show of crying and moaning here. Prior to crying for the loss of of his friend Lazarus, Jesus had no knowledge that the stench-smelling decayed man will be resurrected back to life "....the body decayeth; for he hath been dead four days..." (John 11:39). So Jesus cried for the loss of his friend. It was all in GOD Almighty's Hand and Permission, ALONE, to resurrect Lazarus.
Again, this is why Jesus said:
Prophet Muhammad's similar experience:
GOD Almighty loves His Prophets. Yes, He, the Almighty, puts them sometimes through many hardships, but He also shows them ample love. Here, GOD Almighty enabled Jesus, peace be upon him, to resurrect Lazarus because Jesus was very upset for the loss of his friend.
Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him, also had a similar experience. When the Romans lost their battle with the Persians in year 617 AD, the Prophet was very upset, because:
1- His wife, Maria the Coptic, was a Christian who became a Muslim. Her real name is Maria Shamoun .
2- The Christian king of Abyssinnia, king Ashama ibn Abjar, - also known as King Armah and/or Ella Tsaham, - and who was also called with the Abyssinians royal title Al-Najashi in Arabic, - translates as Negas in English, - was the kindest to the Muslims who migrated to him after they fled the tortures and persecution of the pagans of Mecca .
Allah Almighty Said in the Glorious Quran:
30:2 غلبت الروم
[030:004] Within several years! في بضع سنين To Allah belong the decision and the decree prior to this (event) and later. That day, the believers would rejoice ويومئذ يفرح المؤمنون,
[030:005] Over the victory granted by Allah. He helps whom He wants. And He is the most Powerful and the most Merciful.
The Romans indeed fought the Persians seven years later and defeated them in year 624 AD. This Divine Promise from Allah Almighty happened just to make the Prophet and the Believers happy and to rejoice! And no surprise there, the Divine Promise and Prophecy perfectly happened. Please visit:
This is another powerful proof that the Quran wasn't a convenient false revelation invented by a liar. The Glorious Quran is different. And to every polytheist trinitarian pagan:
If you believe that Jesus is our Creator, then I quote Jesus for you:
Why are you thinking such evil things?
GOD Honored Jesus' Cries:
By the way, similar to Jesus' cry over Lazarus' death, and Prophet Muhammad's upset over the Romans' defeat, and how Allah Almighty honored both of the Prophets' requests, it is quite clear that Allah Almighty also honored Jesus' cries on the night of the crucifixion to save him. And Allah Almighty indeed did save him from the crucifixion and death. Please visit:
Matthew 9:3-8, Leviticus 4:31,
Mark 1:4, Luke 7:30, John 11:38-42, Matthew 15:35-37, Luke 22:14-20,
Matthew 11:25, Luke 10:21,
Surah 30 contains a remarkable historical prophecy which was fulfilled.
30:2 غلبت الروم30:3 في ادنى الارض وهم من بعد غلبهم سيغلبون
30:4 في بضع سنين لله الامر من قبل ومن بعد ويومئذ يفرح المؤمنون30:5 بنصر الله ينصر من يشاء وهو العزيز الرحيم
[030:002] Romans have been defeated,[030:003] In the lowest land! But after being defeated they will emerge victorious,
[030:004] Within several years! To Allah belong the decision and the decree prior to this (event) and later. That day, the believers would rejoice,[030:005] Over the victory granted by Allah. He helps whom He wants. And He is the most Powerful and the most Merciful.
Note: Thorough analysis on the Key Noble Words in these Noble Verses are discussed using several encyclopedic Arabic dictionaries at:
Also, the Romans came back Victorious:
Just to please the Prophet and the Believers:
Allah Almighty promised to make the Romans be victorious over the Persians just to please the Prophet and the Believers. And this Divine Prophecy and Promise indeed did come to pass after several years! Indeed, all Praise and Glory are due to Allah Almighty Alone for making the Noble Quran be the Perfect and Everlasting Miracle, for us humans, out of all of His Divine Miracles! And may Allah Almighty send His Peace, Mercy and Blessings upon our Beloved and Blessed Prophet, Teacher and Role Model, Muhammad. Ameen.
The period of the revelation of this Surah is determined absolutely by the historical event that has been mentioned at the outset. It says: "The Romans have been vanquished in the neighboring land." In those days the Byzantine occupied territories adjacent to Arabia were Jordan, Syria and Palestine, and in these territories the Romans were completely overpowered by the Iranians in 615 A. D. Therefore, it can be said with absolute certainty that this Surah was sent down in the same year, and this was the year in which the migration to Habash took place.
Syed Maudani commentary http://www.usc.edu/dept/MSA/quran/maududi/mau30.html, "This prophecy has two parts:
1. that the Roman [Byzantine] Christians, although they have been vanquished at this time, will predominate over Iran after nine years;
2. that the Muslims shall also rejoice on the day of the Romans' victory over Iran; for they, too, shall gain victory over shirk (associating partners with Allah), although the idolaters, at that time, prided exultantly over their huge numbers."
"Muhammad In World Scriptures," Volume I, Maulana Abdul Haq Vidyarthi (New USA Edition, 1999), p. 253.
Both prophecies were actually fulfilled within ten years in 624 C.E.
"[D]uring the fixed period of time, exactly after nine years, the Roman armies entered Iran triumphantly, and on the same day Muslims also scored their victory against the idolaters on the field of Badr. The event of the Roman victory took place in 624 C.E., and it is written in the Encyclopaedia Britannica, under the heading 'Chosroes II':
"'In 624 he [Heraclius] advanced into northern Media, where he destroyed the great fire-temple of Goudzak.'"
Ibid., emphasis added.
"[Byzantine Emperor] Heraclius started his counter attack in 623 A. D. from Armenia. Next year, in 624 A. D., he entered Azerbaijan and destroyed Clorumia, the birthplace of Zoroaster, and ravaged the principal fire temple of Iran. Great are the powers of Allah, this was the very year when the Muslims achieved a decisive victory at Badr for the first time against the mushriks. Thus both the predictions made in Surah Rum were fulfilled simultaneously within the stipulated period of ten years."
Syed Maudani, supra
What is remarkable is that, at the time the Prophet revealed Surah Rum its fulfillment would have seemed extremely unlikely to objective human observers: These were the conditions when this Surah of the Quran was sent down, and in it a prediction was made, saying: "The Romans have been vanquished in the neighboring land and within a few years after their defeat, they shall be victorious. And it will be the day when the believers will rejoice in the victory granted by Allah." It contained not one but two predictions: First, the Romans shall be Victorious; and second, the Muslims also shall win a victory at the same time.
Apparently, there was not a remote chance of the fulfillment of the either prediction in the next few years. On the one hand, there were a handful of the Muslims, who were being beaten and tortured in Makkah, and even till eight years after this prediction there appeared no chance of their victory and domination. On the other, the Romans were losing more and more ground every next day. By 619 A. D. the whole of Egypt had passed into Sassanid hands and the Magian armies had reached as far as Tripoli. In Asia Minor they beat and pushed back the Romans to Bosporus, and in 617 A. D. they captured Chalcedon (modern, Kadikoy) just opposite Constantinople. The Emperor sent an envoy to Khusrau, praying that he was ready to have peace on any terms, but he replied, "I shall not give protection to the emperor until he is brought in chains before me and gives up obedience to his crucified god and adopts submission to the fire god." At last, the Emperor became so depressed by defeat that he decided to leave Constantinople and shift to Carthage (modern, Tunis). In short, as the British historian Gibbon says, even seven to eight years after this prediction of the Quran, the conditions were such that no one could even imagine that the Byzantine Empire would ever gain an upper hand over Iran. Not to speak of gaining domination, no one could hope that the Empire, under the circumstances, would even survive.
Syed Maudani, supra.
The correctness of this unlikely prophecy clearly points to Divine Revelation as the source of the Quran. This is what Arab polytheists at the time thought:
After this no one could have any doubt about the truth of the prophecy of the Quran, with the result that most of the Arab polytheists accepted Islam.
Syed Maudani, supra.
The prophecy is no less impressive today than it was 1475 years ago!
Again, Challenge to Shamoun: Why
are you rejecting the Noble Quran for using "few years",
when your Bible also used "few years" for
prophecies and situations in Daniel 11:19-21, Job
16:21-23, 1 Kings 17:1-3, Leviticus 25:51-53?

The Stunning Geological Miracle in Noble Verses 30:2-5 (the place where the Romans were defeated)!
The Miracle of the
mountains' formation, and the earth's Spherical Expansion:
My detailed proofs about the earth spread out
spherically are listed here:
Now, in Noble Verses 79:30-32, Allah Almighty Says:
And the earth after that He has spherically expanded
Indeed, scientists have proven that:
1- The earth has spherically expanded.
2- The earth produced its water and pasture on a large scale as a result. I have posted a Scientific Video from History Channel proving this:
The mountains due to this expansion were formed; due
to the plate tectonics movements,
which caused for land to be pushed on top of each other, which
formed mountains and hills. You can learn about this at:
For ample more Noble Verses on mountains and the geology of earth, please visit:
The Earth Spread out Spherically, and its Waters came out from it:
Allah Almighty Said:
As thoroughly detailed in this detailed article, I thoroughly demonstrated using 7 encyclopedic dictionaries that DAHA دحاها means:
1- To push.
2- To throw.
دحا (daha): دفعه و رمى به (dafa'aahu wa ramaa bih) Caused it to move, pushed it, or threw it.
دحا الصبي المِدحاةَ أي دفع الصبي المِدحاةَ Daha the boy the rolling toy, means the boy pushed the rolling toy.
4- To make something round. I used several examples for ROUND AND BULGED TUMMY, and making round objects. I even used a Hadith from Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him, when he said:
In Prophet Muhammad's Hadith: كان لأسامة بطننٌ مُندحٌ اي متسع Osama had a round and big tummy.
Also the dictionary says:
و بطنٌ مُنداحُ أي خارخٌ مُدوّر His tummy is mun-daahun means it is OUT THERE AND ROUND مُدوّر.
So when Allah Almighty DAHA THE EARTH, it means that
Allah Almighty EXPANDED
IT SPHERICALLY through
rotating around itself and moving in its orbit in space. And this
is why Allah Almighty Said after that (after He DAHAHA), He brought
forth from it its
water and pasture.
Science has proven this to be 100% accurate and True:
In Article #3'S video

Did Prophet Muhammad know think that the earth was spherical or flat?
In this Hadith, above, he certainly seems to have
known this fact very well. And this Hadith is even older than Sahih
Bukhari. It is important to know that Imam Bukhari and others
have declared that they have
discarded thousands of Hadiths:
Also, ample proofs for several of the Glorious Quran's Arabic words' definitions, from my Arabic-English and English-Arabic dictionaries, that prove that the earth is indeed spherical, rotating around its axle, and is suspended in space, are provided in the following important link:
