Non-Muslims ask: What proves that Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) was a Messenger from Allah?
The second proof is:
2- What Heracles, the Roman emperor mentioned in the dialogue between him and Abu-Sofyan, when the prophet sent him a message calling him to Islam, it said: (In the name of God the most gracious the most merciful, from Mohammed the messenger of Allah to Heracles the emperor of the Romans, be a Muslim and you will be safe, God will double you your favor, if you shun then you are responsible for your followers). The Koran says: 3:64. “Say: "O People of the Book! Come to common terms as between us and you, that we all worship none but God, that we associate no partners with him; that we erect not from among ourselves Lords and patrons other than God." If then they turn back, say you: "Bear witness that we (at least) are Muslims (bowing( to God’s Will.” When he got this message he asked his followers if there were any of his family in Jerusalem, they searched its markets and found Abu-Sofyan Ibn-Harb with few people from Mecca, and Abu- Sofyan was the leader of the people of Mecca and their leader in the fight against the Prophet of Allah. Heracles asked them to enter and asked about their leader, they pointed to Abu-Sofyan, he told them to stand behind him and pointed him as a liar if he said anything untrue, then he asked him through a translator:
Heraclius: Has anyone of his family alleged this thing before? Abu-Sofyan: No. Heraclius: Has his family lost a reign or dominion and he seeks it back? Abu-Sofyan: No. Heraclius: What is his ancestry? Abu-Sofyan: He is moderate (middle class) amongst us. Heraclius: Was he a liar amongst you? Abu-Sofyan: No. Heraclius: Who follow him? The rich or the poor? Abu-Sofyan: The poor. Heraclius: Do his followers increase or decrease? Abu-Sofyan: They increase. Heraclius: Does any of them return and leave him after following him? Abu-Sofyan: No. …………….. Etc.
Then Heraclius said: You told me that he never lied to you, so he never to let lying to you and lie to God, you said that his followers are the poor and those are the followers of prophets, you said that no one of his followers leaves him and this is the truth when it touches hearts and you said that there was not reign in his family so he seeks it back. If you are truthful then this is the prophet Jesus mentioned to us, lest the people around me, I would go and wash his feet and God will support him until he owns what is below my feet.........to be continued.
