I don't know why you keep using the word "beat" which seems very harsh. Angel Gabriel embraced Prophet Mohammed strongly, for reasons that God knows better. Muslims believe that this happened because God wanted Prophet Mohammed to know that this is a true revelation and not an illusion, so that Prophet Mohammed knows that he is not daydreaming and that what is happening in front of him is true. We also believe that Angel Gabriel embraced Prophet Mohammed so that he knows that what is coming will be even more difficult, and that he will face so many obstacles and difficulties in his mission to spread Islam.
The teaching of Islam is a proof that Prophet Mohammed was visited by Angel Gabriel and not a demon as some of you claim!
Islam is to submit yourself to the One true God.
Al Ikhlas 112. Say: He is Allah the One and Only; (1) Allah, the Eternal, Absolute; (2) He begetteth not, nor is He begotten; (3) And there is none like unto Him. (4)
No Muslim can deny any of the Prophets of God, or any of the revelations that came before Quran.
The Women 4. Those who deny Allah and His Messengers, and (those who) wish to separate Allah and His Messengers, saying: "We believe in some but reject others": and (those who) wish to take a course midway.― (150) They are in truth (equally) Unbelievers; and We have prepared for unbelievers a humiliating punishment. (151) To those who believe in Allah and His messengers and make no distinction between any of the messengers, We shall soon give their (due) rewards: for Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful. (152)
Al Imran 3. Say (O Muhammad): We believe in Allah and that which is revealed unto us and that which was revealed unto Abraham and Ishmael and Isaac and Jacob and the tribes, and that which was vouchsafed unto Moses and Jesus and the prophets from their Lord. We make no distinction between any of them, and unto Him we have surrendered.
Islam is to pray for God alone and to seek forgiveness from Him alone without a mediator.
The Cow 2. When My servants ask thee concerning Me, I am indeed close (to them); I listen to the prayer of every suppliant when he calleth on Me; let them also with a will listen to My call and believe in Me; that they may walk in the right way. (186)
Al Imran 3. And those who having done something to be ashamed of, or wronged their own souls earnestly bring Allah to mind; and ask for forgiveness for their sins,―and who can forgive sins except Allah?,―And are never obstinate in persisting knowingly in (the wrong) they have done. (135)
Islam is to pray, fast, pay money for poor, never say lies, never kill or harm any innocent.
Al Furqan 25. Those who invoke not, with Allah, any other god, nor slay such life as Allah has made sacred, except for just cause, not commit fornication― and any that does this (not only) meets punishment (68) (But) the Penalty on the Day of Judgment will be doubled to him, and he will dwell therein in ignominy― (69) Unless he repents, believes, and works righteous deeds, for Allah will change the evil of such persons into good and Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful (70) And whoever repents and does good has truly turned to Allah with an (acceptable) conversion― (71)
Hud 11. And establish regular prayers at the two ends of the day and at the approaches of the night: for those things that are good remove those that are evil: be that the word of remembrance to those who remember (their Lord): (114)
Al Hadid 57. For those who give in Charity, men and women, and loan to Allah a Beautiful Loan, it shall be increased manifold (to their credit) and they shall have (besides) a liberal reward. (18)

I do not understand how anybody in their RIGHT mind would think that he had a visit from an angel. How could they possibly defend it?
I don’t understand how anybody in their RIGHT mind would believe that such great teachings of Islam would be brought by man or demon!
