This article is based on a document published by Ergun which can be found here.
If "for some reason" Ergun decides to remove the publication from his website, it has been saved here.
Did Ergun read one authentic biography of the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh)? Is this comparison valid or is he merely trying to instil the reader with "controversy" surrounding Muhammad (pbuh)? You decide.
What is he trying to say? Jesus Christ is eternal? I'd like to see him prove that a man who was born of a woman and died on cross was "eternal".
So this "ex Muslim" thinks Allah (swt) sent six prophets into the world? Did he read the Qur’an even a single time? The Qur’an mentions 25 prophets by name and Muslims believe that Allah (swt) sent 124,000 prophets into the world throughout history until the advent of Muhammad (pbuh) and the beginning of his ministry.
This is a very serious issue as the belief in the prophets is one of the six articles of faith. He’s not very clever is he? Maybe he was confused and thinks that only six prophets were sent to defend monotheism?
I wonder what kind of Islamic upbringing Ergun has had for him to not know the fundamentals!
And? what is he trying to prove? is Ergun anti-marriage or something? Is he implying that Muhammad (pbuh) mistreated his wives or unfairly?
So let me get this straight, the bible mentions Jesus’ birth, then some things he did when was 12....Abra Kadabra!! he is now 30! For 18 years of his life, not a single record of what he was doing and the problem is not there! His 3 years of ministry as the bible records is extremely contradictory. If believing in Jesus (pbuh) was not a principle of Islam, Muslims would argue this man is a myth, how can anyone verify anything personal with this obscure character?
Note : I am not accusing Jesus (pbuh) of adultery , I am just pointing to the fact that Ergun can't prove that his "man-god" never knew a woman.
Muhammad (pbuh) is a man; just like any one of us, if you encounter the super natural you will be afraid, scared, doubting...etc
Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) lived in a society that was strictly pagan, if anything super natural happens they would say "SATAN DID IT! DEMONS DID IT!", but Ergun does not mention what happened next , how the Angel Gabrial himself came to him afterward, introduced himself, informed him that the revelation he received is from God and of his divine mission.
He himself was a revelation? When did Jesus (pbuh) claim to be one? Which disciple understood him to be revelation? And don't get me started on Paul!
Maybe Ergun is referring to how we Muslims believe that the authentic way of the Prophet (pbuh) is revelation.
So God's purpose of being born was to die? This is absurd, this is no better than heavy metal lyrics,
This is exactly why I doubt Ergun never read an authentic biography, forced conversions NEVER HAPPENED, it is not recorded in our sources and even contemporary Christian sources. For information on this matter, please read this.
How can Ergun explain all the conversions that happened in Makkah? How cane he explain the huge number of people who came to Islam peacefully during the final years of the life of prophet Muhammad (pbuh)? Based on Ergun's history, we can understand why he needs to come up with this garbage.
A man (a creation) created the universe?
This topic is very huge and subjected to extreme debate, so I will recommend the reader to check out the argument online, and I personally recommend watching this debate on the topic of the trinity, it is very educational.
Muhammad (pbuh) never went to war or order the death of certain individuals without a valid reason, if "shedding blood" is a problem for Ergun why does accept the Old Testament and its God ?
Ergun claims that he was taught to refute the Christians and their arguments against Islam at his Madrassa. If this were true, he would not be presenting such weak and classical arguments.
