From http://www.answering-christianity.com/is_muhammad_true_prophet.htm:

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:
  1. 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?

    Read my article on this subject: 
    How many years is "few years" and "many years"?
      
      
  2. Another Challenge:  Please demonstrate to us from your sources how Jesus was born on December 25th.  And also, why are there many Christians miserably contradicting each others regarding their beliefs on the time Jesus was born?  Some believe he was born during Winter; others believe he was born during Spring; other believe he was born in Summer; and other believe he was born during the Fall.

   

 

Quran's correct prophecy of defeat of Romans

By
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:
  
Just to please Prophet Muhammad:
  
8 They thought Jesus was claiming to be GOD:

They thought Jesus was thinking he was GOD.  Here is how Jesus answered them:

Matthew 9:3-8 (CEV)
3 Some teachers of the Law of Moses said to themselves, “Jesus must think he is God!”
4 But Jesus knew what was in their minds, and he said, “
Why are you thinking such evil things?
5 Is it easier for me to tell this crippled man that his sins are forgiven or to tell him to get up and walk?
6 But I will show you that the Son of Man has the right to forgive sins here on earth.” So Jesus said to the man, “Get up! Pick up your mat and go on home.”
7 The man got up and went home.
8 When the crowds saw this, they were afraid and praised God for giving such authority to people.

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:

John 5:30
30 I cannot do anything on my own. The Father sent me, and he is the one who told me how to judge. I judge with fairness, because I obey him, and I don’t just try to please myself.

  

Jesus Crying for the death of his friend:

Notice in John 11:38:

John 11 (KJV)
38 Jesus therefore again groaning (crying) in himself cometh to the grave. It was a cave, and a stone lay upon it.

John 11 (WYC)
38 Therefore Jesus again making noise in himself, came to the grave. And there was a den, and a stone was laid thereon.

John 11 (KJ21)
38 Jesus therefore again, groaning (crying) in Himself, came to the grave. It was a cave, and a stone lay against it.

John 11 (ISV)
38
Groaning (crying) deeply again, Jesus came to the tomb. It was a cave, and a stone was lying in front of it.

John 11 (NABRE)
38 So Jesus,
perturbed again, came to the tomb. It was a cave, and a stone lay across it.

John 11 (NET)
38 Jesus, intensely moved again, came to the tomb. (Now it was a cave, and a stone was placed across it.)

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:

John 5:30
30 I cannot do anything on my own....

  

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 [1].

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 [2].

Allah Almighty Said in the Glorious Quran:

‏‏30:2 غلبت الروم
‏30:3 في ادنى الارض وهم من بعد غلبهم سيغلبون
‏30:4 في بضع سنين لله الامر من قبل ومن بعد ويومئذ يفرح المؤمنون
‏30:5 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
وهم من بعد غلبهم سيغلبون,

[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:

www.answering-christianity.com/defeat_romans.htm

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:

    Quran 30:2-5

      

    Surah 30 contains a remarkable historical prophecy which was fulfilled.

    ‏‏30:2 غلبت الروم

    30:4 في بضع سنين لله الامر من قبل ومن بعد ويومئذ يفرح المؤمنون

    [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,

    Note:  Thorough analysis on the Key Noble Words in these Noble Verses are discussed using several encyclopedic Arabic dictionaries at:

  • The Stunning Geological Miracle in Noble Verses 30:2-5 (the place where the Romans were defeated)! 
  •   

    Also, the Romans came back Victorious:
      

    In 617 A. D. … The Roman 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.
      
    في بضع سنين
    The Bible uses “few years” and “many years”:
    Daniel (ﺩﺍﻧﻴﺎﻝ) 11:19-21, Job (ﺃﻳﻮﺏ) 16:21-23, 1 Kings 17:1-3 (ﺍﻟﻤﻠﻮﻙ) , Leviticus (ﺍﻟﻼﻭﻳﻲ) 25:51-53.

      

    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?

    Now, in Noble Verses 79:30-32, Allah Almighty Says:

    And the earth after that He has spherically expanded
    Brought forth from it its water and pasture
    and the MOUNTAINS HE SET FIRMLY.

    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:

      

    3-  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:

    The Earth Spread out Spherically, and its Waters came out from it:

    Allah Almighty Said:

    Noble Verse(s) 79:30-79:31
    Arabic (Read from right to left.  Also, all png image files: [1] [2]):

    79:30 والارض بعد ذلك دحاها

    79:31 اخرج منها ماءها ومرعاها

    Khalifa: (why is he here?)

    [079:030]  He made the earth egg-shaped.

    [079:031]  From it, He produced its own water and pasture.

      
    Below in this article, we'll see the ample proofs that the earth was indeed
    SPREAD OUT SPHERICALLY.  And Scientists have proven that water does indeed originate from its planets when they're hot enough and are located in the Goldilocks Zone when orbiting their sun.

    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.


    3-  To make something roll, as in DAHA the barrel from the top of the hill, which means he rolled it down from the top of the hill.  Also, this is where the Arabic word DAHRAJA is derived from, which means to make something roll down.

    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:
    الدحداح هو المستدير الململم    The dahdaah is the person who is ROUND and STOCKY.

    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:


    1-  Water was brought forth from the earth - Science confirmed it and the Holy Quran claimed it 1400 years ago:

    Note:  In Article #3'S video in the article, the collision of the iron-planet made
    our earth EGG-SHAPED, according to the Scientists and the video.

      
    2-  Our earth expanded and produced its own water:

    And

    Prophet Muhammad's Hadith (saying) [1] [2] [3] regarding the rising and setting POINTS:


    (Play video file: [1] [2])

    Prophet Muhammad: The sun is in constant orbit always rising on people while setting on others.

    عن ابن عباس رضي الله عنهما ان رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم سئل :هذه المغارب اين تغرب ؟ وهذه المطالع اين تطلع ؟ فقال صلى الله عليه وسلم هي على رسلها لا تبرح ولا تزول , تغرب عن قوم وتطلع على قوم ,وتغرب عن قوم وتطلع , فقوم يقولون غربت ,وقوم يقولون طلعت

    "Ibn Abbas narrated on Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him, that the Prophet was asked: Where does the sun go after all of these sunsets? And where does it come from after all of these sunrises? The Prophet, peace be upon him, replied: It is in constant motion. It doesn't stop nor disappear. It sets on people and rises on others, and it sets on people and rises on others. So people would say it has risen while others say it has set."

    Allah Almighty in the Glorious Quran said that earth is:

           -  Spherical: "egg-shaped" [1].
           -  Is rotating around itself.
           -  Is moving in space in curvy orbits [2].
           -  Is in constant motion.
           -  Is suspended in space.
           -  Is swimming in space.
           -  Is traveling through the constantly expanding universe [3].

    Question:

    Did Prophet Muhammad know think that the earth was spherical or flat?

    Answer:

    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:

    www.islamic-awareness.org/Hadith/bukhari.html

  • "The two sahih collections did not gather the totality of the authentic ahadith as proved by al-Bukhari's testimony: "I have not included in my book al-Jami` but what is authentic, and I left out among the authentic for fear of [excessive] length."
      

  • "... Bukhari, collected twenty thousand of them, of which he rejected ten thousand, accounting them untrue. Of the remaining ten thousand he accepted only 7,275, declaring the rest to be untrustworthy. Abu Da'ud accepted as authentic only 4,800 rules out 50,000."

  •   
    This is to keep their volumes as simple and manageable as possible.  So it is quite possible that the Prophet spoke about the earth being spherical, and the Glorious Quran certainly did, and
    people just dismissed them as nonsense.  I have covered your question in great details at:
