Many Christians today make the claim that the prophet Muhammad is not a prophet because he supposedly performed no miracles, and they often always keep on asking for Muslims to show a miracle performed by the prophet Muhammad. What is amazing about this weak argument is that Jesus himself rebukes Jews who used to apply this same argument against him and the former prophets! Here is the passage:
48 Then said Jesus unto him, Except ye see signs and wonders, ye will not believe
This verse completely describes present day Christians who often always ask for signs from the prophet Muhammad, a similar characteristic to disbelieving Jews, whom Jesus rebuked for such pathetic arguments:
38 Then certain of the scribes and of the Pharisees answered, saying, Master, we would see a sign from thee. 39 But he answered and said unto them, An evil and adulterous generation seeketh after a sign; and there shall no sign be given to it, but the sign of the prophet Jonas (Matthew 12:38-39)
Note here a Jew comes asking for a sign from Jesus, just like Christians always ask Muslims to show them a sign from the prophet Muhammad. Note the response Jesus gives to such a request, he rebukes the Jew very strongly saying AN EVIL ADULTEROUS GENERATION SEEK A SIGN. WOW!
So What is the difference between these Jews and today’s Christians who often always ask Muslims to show them a miracle that the prophet Muhammad performed. There is no difference, and as Jesus said:
An evil and adulterous generation seeketh after a sign
Hence had Jesus been here today he would have rebuked Christians for their claims and arguments that they often throw against the blessed prophet Muhammad.
And Allah knows Best
