Why Jews and Christians rejected our prophet is known to them. If they would have applied the tests, they would have found out that our prophet was a True prophet of God.
If there is doubt in the prophethood of our prophet, then I am sure they cannot prove prophethood of ANY of the prophets whom they believe in.
But let us leave out these subjective opinions. There will always be people who will not listen to reason and logic and adhere to their beliefs.
If that was not so, the life on this planet would have become "so monotonous" !!
So leave aside, what Jews say and what Christians say about our prophet. First you should know what are the qualities of a true prophet of God.
I told you that you should have an open mind, if you are confused and already pre-programmed, you might not follow the arguments.
Are you ready?
Yet more garbage from the low life who will not speak up for the protection of children.

What I want to know is that whether those criteria were known even before birth of Muhammad.You haven't cleared that doubt yet.
Subjective opinions are OK.Even there is division among Muslims due to differences in approach towards Islam.
If it is mere subjective opinions of Christians and Jews against Muhammad would there not be any reasonable argument in favor of Muhammad?

Give up the lies and try to be honest for once in your life you mindless creationist robot.
I wouldn't describe hell as torture but it is terror. It is solitary confinement, darkness and freezing cold. Nobody rots forever in hell except Satan. If you go there, eventually your spirit (breath) will be snuffed out (drowned) and you will cease to exist. Only the wicked go to hell, right now it doesn't matter what you believe about God.

You're evil and you embrace wickedness. You will perish and be tortured in Hell forever and there is nothing you can do about that once you are there. The delicious irony is that you mock now, but will suffer forever.
Tell me,,,are you one of those folks that run around trying to frighten the life out of little kids and those of limited mental capacity.
Don't bother replying, I know the answer, tis merely an attempt to get you to step back and look in the mirror.

You're just making it up - you've never been there yourself, you don't know where it is or how to get to it.

There's no such thing as satan - its all in your head and only in your head.

Thankfully atheists don't fill their minds with such immature garbage.

You don't take responsiblity for the harm that your beliefs cause.

Also its not polite to tell people that they are going to hell.

You also need to correct your book because atheists are not fools.

We show you to be liars every every single day of the week.

When you want to grow up and start telling the truth, we are all ears.

We're not afraid of your imagination.

susanblange "knows" because they suffers from the mental illness of faith.

One of the symptoms of the mental illness of faith is "just knowing" and denying reality and evading proof when asked.

This is the diushonesty that the mental illness of faith causes.

Writers should write objectively and inclusively to receive respect and trust from readers, as well as to avoid alienating readers. To be objective means to write with curiosity, rather than having a preset opinion, and to engage with research, rather than presenting a personal preference.

According to your belief, which of the two supposed final destinations has the greater amount of space for newcomers, Hell or Heaven ?

Sounds good, now explain why dead people would pretend to feel anything at all. Without a living carcass, there be no ability to feel a thing.

Nobody can rot forever, it is a process where rot only occurs as long as there is organic material which can rot. And believe it or not, breath being snuffed out, is dead, it doesn't continue to be snuffed.
