prophet muhammad (saw) and the quran


if one assumes that the quran is the product of a man's
mind, then one would expect it to reflect some of what was going on in the mind of the man who "composed" it. in fact, certain encyclopedias and various books claim that

the quran was the product of hallucinations that
muhammad underwent. if these claims are true - if it indeed originated from some psychological problems in
muhammad's mind - then evidence of this would be apparent in the quran. is there such evidence? in order to
determine whether or not there is, one must first identify what things would have been going on in his mind at that time and then search for these thoughts and reflections in
the quran.

it is common knowledge that muhammad (saw) had a very difficult life. all of his daughters died before him except one, and he had a wife of several years who was very dear and important to him, who not only preceded him in death but died at a very critical period of his life. as a matter of fact, she must have been quite a woman because when the first revelation came to him, he ran home to her, afraid. certainly, even today one would have a hard time trying to find an arab who would tell you, "i was so afraid that i ran home to my wife." they just aren't that way. yet muhammad (saw) felt comfortable enough with his 

wife to be able to do that. that's how influential and
strong woman she was. although these examples are only a few of the subjects that would have been on
muhammad's mind, they are sufficient in intensity to
prove my point.

the quran does not mention any of these things - not the
death of his children, not the death of his beloved companion and wife, not his fear of the initial revelations, which he so beautifully shared with his wife - nothing; yet these topics must have hurt him, bothered him, and caused him pain and grief during periods of his life. indeed, if the quran was a product of his psychological reflections, then these subjects, as well as others, would be
prevalent or at least mentioned throughout
