According to Islamic sources, Muhammad's "seal of prophethood" was a protruding fleshy enlargement on his upper back somewhere between his shoulders. Muslim scholars say it was marked by hair and warts or moles. This physical defect, whose true character was known by Arabian physicians, was marked as a physical malady that ought to be medically treated and removed. Muhammad declined.
Qur'an 33:40— "Muhammad is not the father of any of your men, but (he is) the Messenger of Allah, and the Seal of the Prophets (rests upon him)."
Sahih al-Bukhari 190— "... I stood behind him (Muhammad) and saw the seal of Prophethood between his shoulders, and it was like the "Zir-al-Hijla" (the size of a button on a small tent, or a partridge egg)."
Sahih al-Bukhari 3541— "...standing behind him (Muhammad) I saw the seal (of the Prophets) in between his shoulders."
Sahih Muslim 5790-5793— "... I saw the seal on his back as if it were a pigeon's egg. ... then I stood behind him and I saw the seal between his shoulders. ... I then went after him and saw the Seal of Prophethood between his shoulders on the left side of his shoulder having spots on it like moles."
This History of al-Tabari, vol. 9, p. 158-159— "The Messenger of God said to me, "O Abu Zayd, come close to me and wipe my back," and he uncovered his back. I touched his back, and then put my finger on the seal and touched it. ['Ilba'] states: I said [to Abu Zayd), "What is the seal?" He replied, "[It is] a collection of hair on his shoulders." ... I asked Abu Said al-Khudri about the seal which the Prophet had, and he said that it was like a protruding lump of flesh."
These are the ridiculous superstitious beliefs of Muslims. Muhammad had a fleshy deformity on his back with hairs coming out of it and Muslims believe it was the "seal of prophethood" on Muhammad. Muhammad used the ignorance of his people to his own advantage, as can be witnessed throughout the Qur'an. Any time Muhammad desired to have something, his imaginary alter-ego suddenly provided him with a "revelation" that gave him precisely what he wanted. Observe:
- Muhammad wanted to have more than four wives—Allah gave him a revelation (surah 33:50).
- Muhammad wanted to have sex with Aishah—Allah gave him a revelation.
- Muhammad wanted to marry the divorced wife of his own adopted son—Allah gave him a revelation (surah 33:37).
- Muhammad wanted his followers to quit coming over early and staying late after a meal, asking him all sorts of questions—Allah gave him a revelation (surah 33:53).
The list goes on. Apparently Allah had nothing better to do with his time than to sit around all day waiting to make Muhammad's most neurotic and perverse fantasies come true. The fact is, Muhammad was not a prophet. Muhammad never made any predictions, and certainly no predictions that ever came true. Muhammad was, is, and will always be a false prophet. The Qur'an tells us how we can know that Muhammad was a false prophet:
Qur'an 69:44-46— "And if the messenger were to invent any sayings in Our name, We should certainly seize him by his right hand and We should certainly then cut off the artery of his heart."
On his death bed, Muhammad confessed to being a false prophet:
Sahih al-Bukhari 4428— "...I feel as if my aorta is being cut from that poison."
Sunan Abu Dawud 4498— "... This is the time when it has cut off my aorta."
Sunan Abu Dawud 4449— "... This is the time when it cut off my aorta."
Muhammad's supposed "seal of prophethood" was nothing more than a defect of the flesh. Because his followers were (and still are) stupid beyond all reason, he used their superstitious ignorance against them for his own advantage. Muhammad was no more a prophet than I am the king of England. According to Jesus, "among those born of women there is no greater prophet than John the Baptist" (Luke 7:28a). How do we know that this is true? Because Jesus' words are true and the Qur'an affirms and upholds the inspiration, preservation, and authority of the Bible (surahs 3:3-4; 5:43-47, 66, 68; 6:114-115; 7:157; 10:94; 18:27; etc.) and tells Christians to judge by what they read in the Gospel (surah 5:47). John the Baptist was the final prophet. There was no one after him. John 14:16 and John 16:7-11 are not talking about Muhammad, as many unintelligent Muslims assert. John 14:26 tells us precisely who Jesus was talking about: "But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all that I said to you."
Muhammad (Peace Never Knew Him) is a false prophet.
