Peer-e-Kaamil (pbuh) by Umair Ahmed

Mohammad never thought nor claimed to be inventing a new religion. He never sought power nor took advantage of his situation or status: 

“I am nothing but a warner and a herald of glad tidings unto people who will believe.” (The Qur’an 7:188) “There shall be no coercion in matters of faith.”  (The Qur’an 2.256), and again, “But if they turn away from thee, O Prophet, remember that thy only duty is a clear delivery of the message entrusted to thee.” (The Qur’an 16.82) 

From the second revelation until his death he maintained a singleness of purpose as a Messenger of God to convey and carry out His wishes. He was tasked to restore the original monotheistic faith of Adam, Abraham and other prophets whose messages had become misinterpreted or corrupted over time. His revelations confirmed that the God of the “People of the Book” was the one and only Allah, God of all humanity, and that people should honor Him and only Him in life and deed. The Qur’an says (42.13): “[God] has established for you the same religion enjoined on Noah, on Abraham, on Moses, and on Jesus.”
