Sahih Muslim HadithHadith 1062Narrated byAbuHurayrah The Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) said: I have been given superiority over the other prophets in six respects: I have been given words which are concise but comprehensive in meaning; I have been helped by terror (in the hearts of enemies): spoils have been made lawful to me; the earth has been made for me clean and a place of worship; I have been sent to all mankind; and the line of prophets is closed with me.
Allah has bestowed upon me six favors which the former Prophets did not enjoy:
1I have been endowed with the gift of pithy and perfect speech.
2I was granted victory owing to my awe [terror]
3The spoils of war were made lawful unto me.
4The whole earth has been made the place of worship for me and it has become the means of purification for me also. In other words, in my religion, offering of prayers is not confined to certain specified places of worship. Prayers can be offered at any place over the earth. And in case water is not available, it is lawful for my people to perform ablutions with earth (Tayammum) and to cleanse themselves with the soil, if water for bathing is scarce.
5I have been sent by Allah to carry His Divine message to the whole world.
6And the line of prophets has come to its final end in me. (Muslim, Tirmidhi, Ibn Majah)
*** Muhammadan scholars explain No 4 in a manner that arrogates to the Muhammadans only that the whole Earth is a Masjid/ Mosque.
Of course they conveniently - if they ever were knowledgeable - forget, that the Israelites in their wanderings in the desert and long before the Temple of Solomon was built - or any synagogue existed - prayed where ever they were on the face of the Earth.
They also allege that Jews and Christians need specific places of worship such as churches and synagogues to pray and thus conveniently glossing over the fact that they have mosques.
Why did Muhammad and his followers build mosques if the whole earth is their masjid? ***
Sahih Al-Bukhari HadithHadith 1.331Narrated byJabir bin Abdullah
The Prophet said, "I have been given five things which were not given to any one else before me.
1.Allah made me victorious by awe, (by His frightening my enemies) for a distance of one month's journey.
2.The earth has been made for me (and for my followers) a place for praying and a thing to perform Tayammum, therefore anyone of my followers can pray wherever the time of a prayer is due.
3.The booty has been made Halal (lawful) for me yet it was not lawful for anyone else before me.
4.I have been given the right of intercession (on the Day of Resurrection).
5.Every Prophet used to be sent to his nation only but I have been sent to all mankind.
*** Not once in the whole Bible, can any reader find such arrogant, self serving, bombastic and ARROGANT statements made by any of the Hebrew prophets.
These are the rantings of a Pathological Narcissist ***
