David Wood On Why Muslims Pray To Mohammed (Video)


One of the reasons why Islam despises Christianity is because one of the foundational pillars upon which Christianity stands firm acknowledges the Divine nature of Jesus Christ. According to Islam, however, to believe that Jesus is Divine (or, in their words, to believe that Jesus is a co-equal partner with God) is an unpardonable sin called “shirk” that “Allah” will never forgive. Nonetheless, even though Muslims would never teach that Mohammed is “Allah” in the flesh, they associate and equate the “prophet” of Islam with “Allah” himself repeatedly every day. Islam teaches that “Allah” has no partners on one hand, but contradicts itself by teaching that one cannot become a Muslim unless they acknowledge that “There is no God but Allah and Mohammed is his messenger” per the Shahada on the other. In Islam, a Muslim’s “salvation” is therefore determined by their obedience and devotion to Mohammed, effectively elevating the “prophet” of Islam to the same co-equal status of Islam’s own deity. To acknowledge that there is no god but “Allah” is insufficient. You must acknowledge the “perfect man” Mohammed as well. This, of course, begs the question: Since Mohammed is co-equal with “Allah,” what does Mohammed’s “I-have-been-made-victorious-with-terror” moral character reveal about the nature of “Allah”? …

Revelation 13:18, “This calls for wisdom. Let the person who has insight calculate [psēphizō – ‘reckon’] the number [arithmos – ‘multitude’ of peopleof the beast, for it is the number [arithmos – ‘multitude’ of people] of a man [the false prophet Mohammed]. That number is [χξς – ‘In The Name of Allah’ in Arabic].”

Hadith Bukhari 2996, “… Know that the earth belongs to Allah and His Messenger [Mohammed]…’”

Qur’an Sura 3:31, “… If you should love Allah, then follow me [Mohammed], so Allah will love you and forgive you your sins …”

Qur’an Sura 48:10, “Indeed, those who pledge allegiance to you, [O Muhammad] – they are actually pledging allegiance to Allah …”

Qur’an Sura 4:80, “He who obeys the Messenger [Mohammed] has obeyed Allah …”

David Wood: “… Muslims speak directly to Mohammed during their prayers. They therefore assume that Mohammed can hear them because it only makes sense to speak directly to Mohammed if he can hear what they’re saying. But if Muslims around the world —  over and over again, day after day — talk to Mohammed during their prayers, what attribute would Mohammed need to have in order to hear them? Omnipresence. And that’s a divine attribute …” Watch the video below.

    Muslims thinking they are talking to Muhammad are practicing necromancy and familiar spirits. Witches protected them. Jesus is he that intercedes between us and God. Muslims are calling on Muhammad to intercede making Muhammad do what Jesus alone can do. Muhammad is not Jesus.8:07,90. That is Satan speaking of what will happen to him when he is face down in the fire to be cast into the lake of fire consisting of the lost that are burning in God’s light.

    God has two forms. One is physical. That was Jesus who is the physical manifestation of the Father that Philip saw. The other is Spiritual. That is the Father God that Jesus prayed to continually living in him.. The Spiritual form of God was in Jesus. Jesus saying I and the Father are one emphasizes that.

    Real Christians are followers of Christ who believe the words of Jesus and follow his teachings. Nowhere did Jesus ever declare to be the Most High Divine or to be on the same level.
    He knew very well that he could not do anything without his heavenly Father who is greater than him.

    “17 ¶ But Jesus answered them, My Father worketh even until now, and I work. 18 For this cause therefore the Jews sought the more to kill him, because he not only brake the sabbath, but also called God his own Father, making himself equal with God. 19 Jesus therefore answered and said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, The Son can do nothing of himself, but what he seeth the Father doing: for what things soever he doeth, these the Son also doeth in like manner. 20 For the Father loveth the Son, and showeth him all things that himself doeth: and greater works than these will he show him, that ye may marvel. 21 For as the Father raiseth the dead and giveth them life, even so the Son also giveth life to whom he will. 22 For neither doth the Father judge any man, but he hath given all judgment unto the Son; 23 that all may honor the Son, even as they honor the Father. He that honoreth not the Son honoreth not the Father that sent him. 24 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth him that sent me, hath eternal life, and cometh not into judgment, but hath passed out of death into life. 25 Verily, verily, I say unto you, The hour cometh, and now is, when the dead shall hear the voice of the Son of God; and they that hear shall live. 26 For as the Father hath life in himself, even so gave he to the Son also to have life in himself: 27 and he gave him authority to execute judgment, because he is a son of man. 28 Marvel not at this: for the hour cometh, in which all that are in the tombs shall hear his voice, 29 and shall come forth; they that have done good, unto the resurrection of life; and they that have done evil, unto the resurrection of judgment. 30 I can of myself do nothing: as I hear, I judge: and my judgment is righteous; because I seek not mine own will, but the will of him that sent me. 31 ¶ If I bear witness of myself, my witness is not true. 32 It is another that beareth witness of me; and I know that the witness which he witnesseth of me is true. 33 Ye have sent unto John, and he hath borne witness unto the truth. 34 But the witness which I receive is not from man: howbeit I say these things, that ye may be saved. 35 He was the lamp that burneth and shineth; and ye were willing to rejoice for a season in his light. 36 But the witness which I have is greater than [that of] John; for the works which the Father hath given me to accomplish, the very works that I do, bear witness of me, that the Father hath sent me.” (John 5:17-36 ASV)

    “27 Peace I leave with you; my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be fearful. 28 ¶ Ye heard how I said to you, I go away, and I come unto you. If ye loved me, ye would have rejoiced, because I go unto the Father: for the Father is greater than I. 29 And now I have told you before it come to pass, that, when it is come to pass, ye may believe. 30 I will no more speak much with you, for the prince of the world cometh: and he hath nothing in me; 31 but that the world may know that I love the Father, and as the Father gave me commandment, even so I do. Arise, let us go hence.” (John 14:27-31 ASV)

    Christians should believe in Jesus Christ, the sent one form God, in whom is salvation. Also Muslims look at him and wait for his return.

    “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth on him should not perish, but have eternal life.” (John 3:16 ASV)

    “For the wages of sin is death; but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.” (Romans 6:23 ASV)

    Real Muslims do not pray to Muhammad but pray only to God, what Christians also should do. They too should not pray to Jesus but should follow his advice and pray to the same one as Jesus was praying to, his heavenly Father.

    guestspeaker, “Nowhere did Jesus ever declare to be the Most High Divine or to be on the same level.”

    Hi guestspeaker, thank you for visiting the blog. It’s interesting that while denying the Divinity of Christ you quoted a verse of the Bible stating how the dead would be raised back to life simply by hearing the voice of the Son of God. One of the claims often argued by Muslim apologists against the Christian belief in the Deity of Christ states that Jesus never said “I am God” anywhere in Scripture. It is true that Jesus never said to the Sanhedrin, “I am God.” But there is something pivotal in the Biblical texts that Muslim thinkers either overlook or have chosen to willingly ignore entirely. Healing the sick and raising the dead to life notwithstanding, Jesus accepted worship — something that must be reserved for God alone (Matt. 28:9). Jesus forgave sins (Mark 2:5-7) — something that only God can do. Jesus declared that “before Abraham was, I AM” (John 8:54-58), effectively presenting Himself as the God of Israel in front of Jewish religious leaders. Jesus affirmed that He was the Messiah (Mark 14:60-62) who, according to Jeremiah 23:5-6, was to be the Lord God Himself and claimed to be the “Son of Man” dozens of times who, according to Daniel 7:13-14, was to be the eternal Ruler of an everlasting kingdom. Make no mistake about it. If someone who did not know the Holy Hebrew Scriptures was present to see and hear Jesus, they would not have understood the theological significance of what Jesus did and said and would have probably given it no second thought. The Jewish religious leaders of His day, however, understood the theological significance of His actions and words immediately and sought to kill Him for “making Himself equal with God” (John 5:18).

    guestspeaker, “He knew very well that he could not do anything without his heavenly Father who is greater than him.”

    Only while Jesus was manifested in the flesh was He was temporarily “made lower than the angels” (Heb. 2:9). He took upon Himself human flesh and became a man. At the same time, however, Jesus was also fully Divine because God cannot cease from being God. As Scripture explains for us:

    “Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus, who, being in the form of God, did not consider it robbery to be equal with God, but made Himself of no reputation, taking the form of a bondservant, and coming in the likeness of men. And being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself and became obedient to the point of death, even the death of the cross. Therefore God also has highly exalted Him and given Him the name which is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those in heaven, and of those on earth, and of those under the earth, and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father” (Philippians 2:5-11).

    Jesus made Himself “of no reputation” by voluntarily relinquished Himself of the prerogative of freely exercising His divine attributes and subjected Himself to the will of the Father while on earth. As GotQuestions.org aptly explains, “subservience in role does not equate to subservience in essence. For example, consider an employer/employee relationship. The employer has the right to make demands of the employee, and the employee has the obligation to serve the employer. The roles clearly define a subservient relationship. However, both people are still human beings and share in the same human nature. There is no difference between the two as to their essence; they stand as equals. The fact that one is an employer and the other is an employee does nothing to alter the essential equality of these two individuals as human beings. The same can be said of the members of the Trinity. All three members (Father, Son and Holy Spirit) are essentially equal; i.e., they are all divine in nature. However, in the grand plan of redemption, they play certain roles, and these roles define authority and subservience. The Father commands the Son, and the Father and the Son command the Holy Spirit.

    Therefore, the fact that the Son took on a human nature and made Himself subservient to the Father in no way denies the deity of the Son, nor does it diminish His essential equality with the Father. The “greatness” spoken of in this verse, then, relates to role, not to essence.”

    guestspeaker, “Christians should believe in Jesus Christ, the sent one form God, in whom is salvation. Also Muslims look at him and wait for his return.”

    John 1:1, 14, “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God… And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth.”

    The Jesus of the Bible is the eternal Word of God manifested in human form, a Truth which Islam completely dismisses, and within the dismissal of this Truth lies the spirit of Antichrist. Islam rejects the true Jesus of Scripture and presents instead a pointless, powerless watered-down Muslim version of an Islamic “Jesus” created in the image of the Qur’an, but the Muslim “Jesus” (Isa) of the Qur’an is not the Jesus of the Bible that will one day return.

    guestspeaker, “Real Muslims do not pray to Muhammad but pray only to God …”

    “Muhammad instructed his followers to pray to him directly during their daily acts of worship:

    Narrated Shaqiq bin Salama:
    ‘Abdullah said, “Whenever we prayed behind the Prophet we used to recite (in sitting) ‘Peace be on Gabriel, Michael, peace be on so and so. Once Allah’s Apostle looked back at us and said, ‘Allah Himself is As-Salam (Peace), and if anyone of you prays then he should say, At-Tahiyatu lil-lahi wassalawatu wat-taiyibatu. As-Salamu ‘ALAIKA aiyuha-n-Nabiyu wa rahmatu-l-lahi wa barakatuhu. As-Salam alaina wa ala ibadil-lah is-salihin. (All the compliments, prayers and good things are due to Allah: peace be on YOU, O Prophet and Allah’s mercy and blessings be on YOU. Peace be on us and on the true pious slaves of Allah). (If you say that, it will be for all the slaves in the heaven and the earth). Ash-hadu an la-ilaha illa-l-lahu wa ash-hadu anna Muhammadan ‘abduhu wa Rasuluhu. (I testify that none has the right to be worshipped but Allah and I also testify that Muhammad is His slave and His Apostle).” (Sahih al-Bukhari, Volume 1, Book 12, Number 794)

    This isn’t the only time that Muslims were instructed to pray and/or make invocations to their prophet.

    There is a specific narration which says that Muhammad actually taught a blind man to pray to Allah as well as to himself, an invocation which Muslims continued to use long after Muhammad’s death:

    Tirmidhi relates, through his chain of narrators from ‘Uthman ibn Hunayf, that a blind man came to the Prophet and said, “I’ve been afflicted in my eyesight, so please pray to Allah for me.” The Prophet said: “Go make ablution (wudu), perform two rak’as of prayer, and then say:

    “Oh Allah, I ask You and turn to You through my Prophet Muhammad, the Prophet of mercy; O MUHAMMAD (YA MUHAMMAD), I SEEK YOUR INTERCESSION with my Lord for the return of my eyesight [and in another version: “for my need, that it may be fulfilled. O Allah, grant him intercession for me”].”

    The Prophet added, “And if there is some need, do the same.” (Ahmad ibn Naqib al-Misri, Reliance of the Traveller: The Classic Manual of Islamic Sacred Law (Umdat Al-Salik) in Arabic with facing English text, Commentary and Appendices, edited and translated by Nuh Hah Mim Keller [Amana Corporation; Revised edition, July 1, 1997], w40.3, p. 935; bold and capital emphasis ours)

    Muhammad expressly instructed the blind man to address him directly in his prayer in the same way that he addresses Allah!” Read more here.

    guestspeaker, “[Christians] too should not pray to Jesus but should follow his advice …”

    Revelation 21:6-7, 22:13, “… I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. I will give of the fountain of the water of life freely to him who thirsts. He who overcomes shall inherit all things, and I will be his God and he shall be My son… I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me, to give to every one according to his work. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End, the First and the Last… ”

    Who is speaking here and calling Himself God, the Alpha and the Omega? It is Jesus (cf. Revelation 22:16). It is therefore no wonder why Jesus tells us that we can pray directly to Him and in His name and that He will answer our prayers:

    John 14:10-14, “[Jesus said] Do you not believe that I am in the Father, and the Father is in Me? … Whatever you ask in My name, that will I do, so that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If you ask Me anything in My name, I will do it.”

    Hope this helps …

    @guestspeaker. Hello! And please allow me to say that you are clearly hopelessly IGNORANT regarding the nature and deity of God! With all of your SOOO “IMPRESSIVE” scripture quotations–YOU STILL DON’T GET IT! Here’s what you NEED to know, ‘guest…’–the Lord Jesus Christ IS the fleshly manifestation of Almighty God! He is the “WORD MADE FLESH” Who absolutely NEVER rebuked anyone who worshiped HIm as God! Even when He said, to the Rich Young Ruler, “Why do you call Me good? No one is good but God alone.”–that was by NO MEANS a denial or refutation of His deity–IT WAS ABSOLUTELY A CONFIRMATION THEREOF! He did not rebuke the RYR for calling Him good, He simply asked “WHY”! Jesus was, in all actuality saying, “Why do you presume to call me GOOD? DO YOU KNOW THE ACTUAL PERSON WITH WHOM YOU ARE NOW ACTUALLY SPEAKING?” Yes, yes, yes! That’s exactly what He was saying to the RYR! Unlike the LIES that YOU are peddling here, ‘guest…’, Jesus DID NOT EVER rebuke anyone for worshiping Him as God Almighty! I don’t know what ‘jesus’ you claim to represent by your doctrinal stance here, ‘guest’…, but he is NOT the Jesus Christ of the Bible! Jesus, of the Bible account, was ‘limited’ in His human flesh ONLY BECAUSE He CHOSE to limit Himself! If He had come to Earth as the Almighty reigning King of Glory, His DEITY AND PRESENCE would have dissolved the entire planet AND EVERYBODY IN IT! As the Everlasting Son of the Father, He is NOT limited in any way, shape or form! Here’s what else you need to know, ‘guestspeaker’, DON’T COME ON THIS BLOGSITE and think that you can defend the FALSE “prophet” of islam here! I can’t imagine where you have got your schooling about the nature of Jesus Christ, but you DO NOT know anything–ANYTHING!!! BTW, do I seem to be irritated???? You better believe I am irritated–b/c you, my “friend” are teaching HERESY FROM THE PIT OF HELL! The Apostle Paul wrote, “A little leaven leavens the whole lump…” DON’T MIX YOUR DEMONIC HERESIES IN WITH GOD’S ETERNAL TRUTH!!!! IT STINKS TO HIGH HEAVEN!!! And as for “muslims…praying only to God”–YOU COULDN’T BE FURTHER FROM THE TRUTH! Allah, i.e., ‘the allah-god’ is NOT God at all–he is in all Truth, A DEMON ENTITY, invented by your lying FALSE “prophet”, mohammed, in a desperate attempt to justify and assuage his own filthy sinful lifestyle!!!!! YOU BETTER BELIEVE IT!!!!!
