"Say (O Muhammad): 'I am not a new thing among the Messengers (of Allah) nor do I know what will be done with me or with you (following me). I only follow that which is revealed to me, and I am but a plain warner.'" (Surah 46:8-9)
1. Does this not sound like saying, "you guys follow me but I do not know where we are going?"
Again Allah told Muhammad, "...verily, you (O Muhammad) will die and verily, they (too) will die. Then on the Day of Resurrection, you will be disputing before your Lord." (Surah 39:30-31).
2. Does that mean when you all die as Muslims, you would enter a dispute with Muhammad before Allah?
3. What kind of dispute could this be?
4. Can you as a Muslim have greater assurance that you will be saved than the founder of the religion?
5. Does this not mean that you would actually need a lot more prayers for your peace after death than Muhammad himself would since you can never expect to be on Muhammad's level as a Muslim? Can you be more faithful Muslim than Muhammad?
6. Is it necessary to pray for a person's peace if he or she is in paradise or in some other state in which he or she is in paradise or in some other state in which he or she is already enjoying joy and bliss?
7. Has it ever crossed your mind that by commanding that we should be praying for the peace of Muhammad, Allah has dishonoured his prophet since this calls into question the very salvation of the one whom you claim is the perfect man to follow?
8. In all sincerity, is this issue not enough to cast great fear and doubt into your heart since you can never know whether or not Allah is truly pleased with you enough to give you peace after death?
9. Does that not indicate that no Muslim can ever be certain about his salvation and will, therefore, die in uncertainty?
10. Consider the following scriptures;
"And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name Jesus: for he shall save his people from their sins." (Matthew 1:21)
"For this is my blood of the new covenant, which is shed for many for the remission of sins." (Matthew 26:28)
"For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve and to give his life as a ransom for many." (Mark 10:45).
"For the Son of Man has come to seek and to save that which was lost." (Luke 19:10)
"For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life." John 3:16
He that believeth on him is not condemned but he that believeth not is condemned already because he had not believed in the only begotten Son of God.
These words spake Jesus, and lifted up his eyes to heaven, and said, Father, the hour has come; glorify thy Son, that thy Son also may glorify thee: As thou hast given him power over all flesh, that he should give eternal life to as many as thou hast given him. John 17:1-2
Father, I will that they also, whom thou hast given me, be with me where I am; that they may behold my glory, which thou hast given me: for thou lovedst me before the foundation of the world. O, righteous Father, the world hath not known thee: but I have known thee, and these have known that thou hast sent me. John 17:24-25
Therefore he is able, once and forever, to save those who come to God through him. He lives forever to intercede with God on their behalf. He is the kind of high priest we need because he is holy and blameless, unstained by sin. He has been set apart from sinners and has been given the highest place of honour in heaven. Heb 7:25-26
