As Muslims, we believe that Muhammad (peace be upon him) received revelation from Allah through the Angel Jibreel.The first revelation took place during an odd night of the last ten days of Ramadan (9th month in the Islamic Calendar), it is usually agreed upon that it was the 27th. Muhammad (peace be upon him) was 40 years old at this time.
This odd night within the last ten days of Ramadan is called Laylatul Qadr - the night of destiny. All Muslims accross the globe seek to find this night because it is a night to have all your sins forgiven, so to Muslims, Laylatul Qadr is a very important night. Every Muslim knows this.
The Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon) was born on 12th of Rabi-al-Awwal (3rd month in the Islamic calendar).
So you can clearly distinguish that the date of the first revelation DID NOT take place on the birthday of the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him), because Rabi-Al-Awwal (3rd month) is not Ramadan (9th month).
Ergun Caner has committed a major error with regards to this issue.
The following is a short clip of Ergun explaining to his gullible audience that the first revelation took place on Muhammad’s (peace be upon him) 40th birthday:
so what's the problem?
The problem here is clearly evident.
The first revelation DID NOT take place on the birthday of the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him).
An error with regards to a basic principal of Islam has once again been made by Ergun Caner. Not only is this an error, I have firm belief that this was purposely said by Ergun in order to make the revelation sound so unrealistic that anybody with a “logical” mind would deem it as something impossible without a second thought.
So either Ergun genuinely made a mistake and yet again does not understand a basic principal of Islam or he is a liar (or both).
Didn’t he say he fasted during Ramadan?
Ergun claims that he fasted during the month of Ramadan. As mentioned in the introduction, every Muslim who fasts during Ramadan understands the concept of Laylatul Qadr, the night of destiny.
Once again, Ergun says he was a devout Muslim who fasted and did everything that a Muslim does, then why is it that he does not know about the Night of Destiny?
The same night which all Muslims around the globe seek to find during the last ten days of Ramadan. The simple answer – Ergun is once again being untruthful. He does not know about Laylatul Qadr because he is being untruthful when he says he was a devout Muslim.
They desire to extinguish Allah's Light with their mouths, but Allah will perfect His Light, though the unbelievers hate it.
