Qualities of a True Prophet of God:
H. Eighth Quality: Prophets were sent to all nations of world:
Since every nation and every people need guidance from God to fulfill their mission of life and True Guidance can only come thru Revelation; that is why God sent Prophets and Messengers to every nation in all parts of world.
These prophets came in all ages and spoke in the languages of their people and delivered the guidance of God and asked their followers to follow them and take them as their role models.
H1. No one except God knows exact number of Prophets:
No one except God knows the exact numbers of Prophets and Messengers. We know the names of only a handful of them, and most of them remain unknown to us.
H2 A Prophet of God is deemed alive as long as his True Teachings remain intact:
In case any one should deduce that Physical Presence of Prophet of God is essential in every age and time; let it suffice that a prophet is deemed alive as long as his teachings and sayings and actions are preserved and reach posterity in reliable form.
This is way of God that He sends another prophet to revive the message of old Prophet, when it has been almost forgotten or so much changed and distorted thru passage of time; or circumstances have changed so much that people might fall into serious error unless it is revised or updated.
Ain't it a damn SHAME that your Moohumud doesn't qualify?

Muhammad was totally disqualified when he said they didn't seek out material or wealth or anything for personal gain. Muhammad certainly fought for all of these things in the Quran and Muq knows it.

That is why he cowers from our comments man.

No human child will "believe" he created himslef and this Universe came by itslef.
He has to try very hard to believe in these most unreasonable ideas, and it is only by denying very hard that this will become his or her "natural thoughts".
There have been very less "atheists societies" in whole human history.
My Dear, NO ONE is Born Atheist!!
The word atheist means not theist. No one is born a theist, everyone is born atheist.

And those of us, who are awake, know that a sex act between our parents created us, as it was a sex act between thier parents that created them, and so on, and so on.

Luckily for us, there are no god's mistakes which we are driven to correct, our children get to grow old with the parts they were born with intact, and the most important of all is thier minds not ever be warped either.

Ans.
01. We might disagree , but we should exchange our views is civil way. That is the proper approach.
02. There are indeed good things in old scriptures, but every scriptures speaks about the Last prophet and if any one carefully follows his scripture, he or she should not reject the last and final prophet.
03. It is not in my power to sway any one in one direction or another. I just point out Islamic position and leave them to choose or reject.
04. Satan is also a creature of God and has no Power to defeat or lower the dignity or honor of God. This earth is nothing compared with the whole Universe.
God has given Satan power to whisper false ideas into minds of people….that is part of test which humans are undergoing in this world.
Satan has no power to force any one, he just whispers falsehood to humans….it is humans who choose what to follow…teachings of God or whisperings of Satan.
Allah Knows Best.
"it is humans who choose what to follow…teachings of God or whisperings of Satan."

You raise an interesting question here: Are prophets teachers of an extraordinary kind?

The reason I ask is because an awesome teacher not only is well versed in their subject matter and adjust their teaching style to their students but one who also learns from the their students questions.

It seems to me that the Godly prophets weren't very good teachers.

But I guess you'll fall back on the "you just don't understand" excuse to put the blame anywhere else other than your "prophet."

But they are supposedly the family of Muhammad so they get a pass and blessed by Muslims. Hypocrites.

That's all good and Godly.

As long as you are rich enough, you can go to an Islamic sanctified resort where you can temporarily marry a hooker. err chaste Islamic woman (well, that's what she says), for three days.

No Godly harm, no Godly foul.

But you got to have money to enjoy such Godly privilege blessed upon you.

But I guess for the true (poor) believers, that is heresy.

One of these days, the true believers will put their King on trial.

And throw off not only the shackles of their King but the idea
that Kings are granted Divine Right to Rule.

The sheer level of hypocrisy is astounding and one hopes that they will prevail over their oppression.

Republicans hate the American people and cut voting time to keep them from voting.

After all, he was born in Canada. Last time I checked Canada was still part of the Commonwealth and not the 51st State.

He was just in Iowa testing the waters.
