It was Paul and the Church fathers who gave Jesus “Divine” status after he had departed from this world. But sincere Truth-seekers lend more weight to what Jesus (pbuh) himself said: “For I have not spoken of myself; but the Father which sent me, He gave me a commandment, what I should say, and what I should speak.” – (John 12:49) “But now you seek to kill me, a man that hath told you the truth, which I have heard of God.” - (John 8:40) “And this is life eternal, that they might know Thee, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom Thou hast sent.” – (John 17:3)

“Our current hypothesis about Muhammad, that he was a scheming imposter, falsehood incarnate, that his religion is a mere mask of quackery and fatuity, begins really to look now untenable to anyone. The lies which well-meaning zeal has heaped around this man, is disgraceful to ourselves only.” -(Thomas Carlysle in “Life of Muhammad” “ … mass of detail in the early sources shows that he (Muhammad) was an honest and upright man who had gained the respect and loyalty of others who were like-wise honest and upright men … the most successful of all religious personalities of the world.” - (Encyclopaedia Britannica) “The creed of Muhammad is free from the suspicions of ambiguity and the Qur’an is a glorious testimony to the unity of God.” - (Gibbon in “Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire.”)
