Was Muhammad Created Before Adam?
Dear Mr Ali
Muslim believe that there is hadiths saying Muhammad was created 14000 years before Adam. Please click on this link.
Your comment please….
The problem with Hadith is that Muslims can accept or deny its authenticity depending on the direction of the wind. When a certain hadith suits them it is considered to be authentic and when it does not, they say it is not authentic. The same hadith can be authentic and unauthentic depending on situations.
This is the kind of hadith that may be authentic. It was characteristic of Muhammad to make grandiose claims about himself. However, the claim is a patent lie. Muhammad said he did not know he was a prophet until Gabriel kicked him on the side, squeezed him and he fell to the ground. Then he was told to read in the name of his god. Even then he thought he had become demon possessed. It was his wife who convinced him that he had seen an angel and had become a prophet. Despite that when the hallucination did not repeat itself, on several occasions he attempted to commit suicide. He thought Allah had abandoned him. This proves he did not have a clue he was a prophet until the hallucination occurred and hence the claim that he was created before Adam is bogus.
Furthermore, this hadith contradicts the Quran 18:110 “Say [O Prophet]: “I am but a mortal man like all of you.”
Of course no such a person as Adam ever existed. Humans have evolved and there is no single person from whom we all descend. Anyone who knows a little about evolution will scoff at the story of Adam and Eve. It is a fairy tale and so is Islam.
