As I outlined in the essay, “Islam is False,” Muhammad and his scribes had a poor command of Biblical and Historical texts, subsequently contradicting themselves in countless places. I simply ran out of time, so I saved a great Islamic error to the next installment covering the great “Patriarchal Flaw.”
In lieu of completing my research on Muhammad’s egregious patriarchal dilemma, I am reblogging a preexisting essay from 2013 by “Defense Mission Jericho.”
First, some background: The Qur’an says the prophets must be sons of Isaac and Jacob. Muhammad was neither, for even if he was of Ismaelite decent, this condition is unmet. As the following essay thoroughly lays out, the Qur’an, which is a veritable mishmash of plagiarized religious concepts, is completely false.
To summarize the Quran’s errors regarding the Patriarchs:
Muhammad upholds that a prophet must be from the line of Isaac and Jacob.
The Quran then mistakenly presents Ishmael as one of Jacob’s fathers.
The Quran also mistakenly presents Ishmael as the father of Isaac.
In other texts, Ishmael and Isaac are grouped together as those whom Allah gave to Abraham, much like Allah gave him both Isaac and Jacob. This either means that Jacob is the brother of Ishmael and Isaac, or that Ishmael is Isaac’s father, just as Isaac is Jacobs’ father!
The Quran also mistakenly assumes that Ishmael was a prophet who received revelation.
Muhammad fraudulently alleges that Abraham and Ishmael traveled to Mecca, which did not even exist between 2500-1500 BC. Preposterous.

Judaism holds that one becomes a descendant of Abraham through birth, and Christianity that one becomes a descendant through faith, but Islam holds that descent is unimportant – Abraham, in other words, is not the father of the believing community, but a link in the chain of prophets that begins with Adam and culminates in Mohammad.
Ibrāhīm is mentioned in 35 chapters of the Qur’an, more often than any other biblical personage apart from Moses. He is called both a hanif (monotheist) and Moslem (one who submits),and Muslims regard him as a prophet and patriarch, the archetype of the perfect Muslim, and the revered reformer of the Kaaba in Mecca (which is a proven historical inaccuracy).
Islamic traditions consider Ibrāhīm (Abraham) the first Pioneer of Islam (which is also called millat Ibrahim, the “religion of Abraham”), and that his purpose and mission throughout his life was to proclaim the Oneness of God. In Islam, he is referred to as “Ibrahim El Khalil” (إبراهيم الخليل), meaning “Abraham the Friend [of Allah].” Undoubtedly, Muhammad was intent on lending some “Abrahamic” credence to his specious, syncretic religiosity.
There are way too many compelling reasons to invalidate Muhammad’s claim as a prophet of the true God. However, since the lives of more than a billion Muslims are at stake because of their erroneous believe that Muhammad is a prophet of God, we will use the Qur’an itself to prove why Muhammad simply cannot be a true prophet. It may come as a shocking surprise for Muslims to learn that both the Holy Bible and the Qur’an disqualify Muhammad as a prophet of the true God. Vital evidences will be provided in this article to show as to why according to the Qur’an itself, he simply cannot be a prophet of the true God. A prophet of the God of Abraham, he certainly is not. Consider now the evidences.
