1- The style of the Holy Qur’an is completely different from that of Mohammad  peace be upon him . If we go back to the hadiths , which are the prophet’s words and we compare them with the Holy Qur’an , we shall see a big difference ; a clear difference in everything : in style  , topics , …etc . The language of Mohammad is argumentative , and used in teaching and preaching . It is common for the Arabs . As for the style of the Holy Qur’an is unique , totally different from all that of the Arabic styles .


2- When the reader reads the hadiths  , he feels the human personality with its fear , weakness in front of Allah . Whereas the Holy Qur’an has powerful verses but fair , wise , creative , merciful , not weak even in the topic of mercy . If the Qur’an were from Mohammad peace be upon him , its style and that of the hadith would be the same . The literary and linguistic scholars have agreed that it is impossible for one person to have two styles which are completely different from each other .


3- Mohammad peace be upon him is analphabet . He had never been to school . Is it possible to come up with  this miraculous legislation without any contradiction ? Everybody , Muslims or non Muslims have admitted the greatness of this legislation . Is it possible that such analphabet  come up with this Holy Book , the Qur’an , which is miraculous and unique in its legislation and which is completed socially , economically , religiously , and politically ?


4- If the global and coherent view of the Qur’an to the universe , life , thought , behavior , wars , marriage , worship and economy were from Mohammad peace be upon him , he wouldn’t be human .

These organizations , legislations , and ideas are far to be realized by a lot of committees which have world education and deep specialization no matter how references , studies , and time they have . One man , no matter how genius  he is , and  no matter what education he has cannot invent one of these things .What about all these topics with all these different tendencies ? Can an analphabet come up with this wholesome view about the universe , life , and thought ?


5- Why should Mohammad peace be upon him write a book and say that someone else has done it ? The greatness would be more powerful , clear and superior if he said that he could do something that the whole world is helpless to match it . A work beyond the ability of the humans . Then he would be treated as a superman . What benefit for Mohammad peace be upon him to write a great miraculous Book and say that someone else has done it ?


6- In the Holy Book the Qur’an , there is the history of old people which is different from that in the books which were common at that time . There are scientific miracles about the universe , life , medicine , and mathematics . How did this analphabet know that the amount of air decreases as one flies up to the point that one’s chest aches ? How did he know that the sun and the moon swim in space ?


7- There are many verses which reproach Mohammad peace be upon him , such as :

A whole sourat (chapter) the name of which is ‘’Abasa’’  : “1 (The prophet peace be upon him ) frowned and turned away . 2 Because there came to him the blind man . 3 And how can you know that he might become pure  (from sins)? 4 Or he might receive admonition , and the admonition might  profit him . 5 As for him who thinks himself self sufficient . 6 To him you attend . 7 What does it matter to you if he will not become pure ?(from belief ; you are only a Messenger , your duty is to convey the message of Allah ) 8 But as to him who came to you running , 9 And is afraid (of Allah and His punishment)  , 10 Of him you are neglectful and divert your attention to another  “ (Abasa 1-10)

In the chapter of the “repentance” : ‘’May Allah forgive you (O Mohammad ) Why did you grant them leave (for remaining behind and not go for Jihad ) until those who told the truth were seen  by you in a clear light , and you had known the liars ? (the repentance 43)

In the chapter “Al-Imran” : It is not for any prophet to take illegally a part of the booty (Ghulul) and whosoever deceives his companions as regards the booty , he shall bring forth on the Day of Resurrection that which he took (illegally) . Then every person shall be paid in full what he has earned , and  they shall not be dealt with unjustly . (Al-Imran 161)

In chapter “Al-Anfal “ : It is not for a prophet that he should have prisoners of war (and free them with ransom ) until he had made a great slaughter (among his enemies) in the land . You desire the good of this world (i.e. the money of ransom for freeing the captives) but Allah desires ( for you ) the Hereafter  . And Allah is All-Mighty , All-Wise.” (Al-Anfal 67)

In the chapter “At-Tawbah” : It is not (proper) for the prophet and those who believe to ask Allah’s forgiveness for the Mushrikun (polytheists , idolaters , pagans , disbelievers in the Oneness of Allah) even thought they be of kin , after it has become clear to them that they are the dwellers of the Fire (because they die in a state of disbelief) (At-Tawbah 113)

In the chapter “At-Tahrym” : “O prophet ! Why do you forbid (for yourself) that which Allah allowed to you , seeking to please your wives ? And Allah is Oft-Forgiving , Most-Merciful .” (At-Tahrym 1)


All this reproach and a lot like it . Is it sensible that Mohammad should write a book and reproach himself ?

He did a lot of things with his friends , then they changed in the Qur’an and he accepted them willingly . If the Qur’an were his , he wouldn’t write them ; he would write what was convenient for him without mentioning the abolished one .


8- Another proof : Mohammad peace be upon him had some events that urged him to speak and express himself . If it were his book , he would express himself as he liked . Nevertheless , there were times when he needed a revelation , but many days and many nights   passed before a Qur’an  was revealed for people to read .


‘’And thus We have revealed to you (O Mohammad peace be upon him) a Qur’an in Arabic that you may warn the Mother of the Towns (Makkah) and all around it , and warn (them) of the Day of Assembling of which there is no doubt : When a party will be in Paradise (those who believe in Allah and followed what Allah’s messenger peace be upon him brought them ) and a party in a blazing Fire (Hell) (those who disbelieved in Allah and followed not what Allah’s Messenger peace be upon him brought them) (Ash-Shura 7)
