Review: Did Muhammad Exist? An Inquiry into Islam’s Obscure Origins

May 2, 2012 07:00

Islam, however, is the very real Hound from Hell now roaming the earth, causing unimaginable suffering and death in nations where Islam rules, invading Western countries with hordes of assimilation-hostile faithful imbued with an implacable enmity for Western values and culture, waging constant violent and stealth jihad in countries its advocates mean to conquer and bring under Islamic and Sharia rule…. But the bogeyman is a phony. A contrivance. A will-o’-the-wisp designed to frighten men into submission or silence. Ignis fatuus. Mere methane. – Capitalism Magazine

Robert Spencer calls its bluff.

Spencer performs a super detective service for the West in Did Muhammad Exist?: An Inquiry into Islam’s Obscure Origins, but to a degree and extent that would make Holmes green with envy. He examines virtually every aspect of the composition and history of Islam and its purported founder, Mohammad.


As Spencer demonstrates, it did not come into existence until long after Mohammad’s death (presuming he even existed) in 632. (Gabriel was the “Prophet Whisperer.”) The Hadith, the companion to the Qur’an purportedly a collection of Mohammad’s sayings and doings, did not begin to accumulate until a century after his death.


The Qur’an especially winds up being a kind of Rube Goldberg-like literary contraption that contains explanations for every unnecessary and obvious contradiction, and its defenders hardly blush.

Islam has swindled its faithful, its communicants, its followers, its believers. All the possible evidence points to the fact that Islam’s substance and veracity comprise a theological and historical fraud.
