I could not find anything saying they witnessed the spirit.
But she didn’t even ask for witnesses to the revelation, more like witnesses that he even existed. Because she said Jesus had witnesses… and nobody I know thinks that Jesus received the Qur’an soo…
I think few doubt the existance of Mohammed, but many doubt who spoke to him so the OP seems at least obvious to me.
people witnessed Jesus… people witnessed Muhammad
Islam places great emphasis on the reliability/validity of witness with regard to the hadith to support Islamic tradition and thus support for the Quran. That reliability are from 7th century names that mean little to the non-Arab/Muslim but more than that they have no other impact than their place in Islamic history.
The Gospel witness is dismissed by Muslims because they don’t carry the same level of specific names like the hadith do because even Catholics will not dispute the specific Evangelists may not have penned the words themselves but may have relied on scribes to do so, much like Mohammed did in getting the Qur’an recorded. Both are a form of dictation so I see little value in that argument on both sides.
My queston then is why would you accept as more valid a story related by Umm Salamah transcribed by some scribe years after Mohammed and not accept as equally valid the Gospels? Once Umm Salamah died her ‘truth’ was as reliable as the unknown scribe that wrote it down.
The difference with the Gospels and all of the NT compared to the Qur’an is that it is a witness in itself during the life of the Evangilists which could be refuted and disproved if it were false. People could have written Peter did not heal and cure others as claimed in Acts, just as people could have written accounts that disprove the life of Jesus as recorded in the Gospels. I know of no 1st century documents from either the Jews or Romans to dispute the Gospels. Do you?
During the life of Mohammed- not withstandind the later claims of miracles of splitting the moon and bringing water from a rock as examples, everything in the Qur’an says he brought no miracles to dispute in his lifetime. His claims of the Night Journey just like the spirit who revealed things to him were not witnessed by others. How do you see a mans dream to support it? Even if I were to accept some obscure claim of witness to Mohammeds miracle or spirit, it is not nearly as significant as the many claims in the Gospels of feeding thousands with a few fish or the healing of many in the Temple.
I don’t see how you could support the Qur’an over the Gospels particularly becasue they disagree.
