As one studies the history of Islam he will be convinced that the Prophet Muhammad believed that he was demon possessed. This is unlike any other prophet of God.
Seventh century paganism was rampant in the Arabian Peninsula. The Kabah in Mecca had 360 idols with Allah being the chief “god” over all of the others. It was a place of Babylonian worship.
Muhammad and his family were steeped in this Babylonian paganism. He believes that he gets a revelation from the angel Gabriel when he visited a cave in Hira. Here is the story from the Qur’an:
Sira No. 152…..
“…in the month of Ramadan in which God willed concerning him that He willed of His grace, the apostle set forth to Hira as was his wont. And his family with him. When it was the night on which God honoured him with this mission and showed mercy on His servants thereby, Gabriel brought him the command of God.
‘He came to me,’ said the apostle of God, ‘while I was asleep, with a coverlet of brocade whereon was some writing, and said, “Read!”
I said, “What shall I read?” he pressed me with it so tightly that I thought it was death; then he let me go and said, “Read!”
I said, “What shall I read?”
He pressed me with it again so that I thought it was death; then he let me go and said “Read!”
I said, :What shall I read?”
He pressed me with it the third time so that I thought I was death and said “Read!”
I said, “What then shall I read?”
And this I said only to deliver myself from him, lest he should do the same to me again.
He said: “Read in the name of thy Lord who created, Who created man of the blood coagulated. Read! Thy Lord is the most beneficent, who taught by the pen, Taught that which they knew not unto men.”
So I read it, and he departed from me. And I awoke from my sleep, and it was as though these words were written on my heart.”
Remember, Muhammad was illiterate. He could not read, yet here he says he read what the spirit told him to read. In other accounts of this same story he told the spirit that he did not read.
Here is the account from the Buhkari Hadith:
Buhkari Hadith – Vol 6 Book5 81
“The angel came to him in it and said, ‘Read!’
“The Prophet said, ‘I said, “I do not read.”
He seized me and squeezed me until all the strength went out of me and then released me and said, “Read!”
I said, “I do not read.”
Then he seized me and squeezed me a second time until all the strength when out of me and then released me and said, “Read!”
I said, “I do not read.”
Then he seized me and squeezed me a third time…..
“He returned with that and his heart was quaking. He went to Khadija and said, ‘Wrap me up! Wrap me up!’ They wrapped him up until the STATE OF TERROR had left him and then he said to Khadija, ‘What is wrong with me?’……the Prophet became so sad that we heard that his sorrow several times made him want to throw himself off the tops of the mountains.”
Muhammad was so bothered by what had happened that he wanted to commit suicide. This is so unlike any of the prophets of the Bible.
In Arabic the spirit is called a Jin. It is where we get the word “genie”, like the one from Aladdin and the lamp. There are other words in Arabic for angels. Muhammad was not sure if this was an angel or a demon. Muhammad, himself, thought he was demon possessed. Article from-https://fortressoffaith.com/islam-religion-of-the-devil/
