Why had Allah chosen a morally degraded person such as Muhammad as messenger?
The Hadiths charge many immoral deeds against Mohammed.
This question arises that how can almighty Allah choose such a person as prophet ?
Allah, I am led to believe is the Arabic word for God, the Creator. However, I am also told that Allah is the name of a moon god. Nevertheless, according to the Quran and the Hadith there are many names for Allah.
- Qur’an 7:180—The Most Beautiful Names belong to Allah: So call on Him by them; But shun such men as use profanity in His names: For what they do, they will soon be requited.
The one thing the Quran does is instruct all Muslims to obey what is written in the Gospels. The following is from What the Qur'an Says About the Bible:
- Sahih Muslim 6475—Abu Huraira reported Allah’s Messenger as saying: There are ninety-nine names of Allah; he who commits them to memory would get into Paradise. Verily, Allah is Odd (He is one, and it is an odd number) and He loves odd number. (What Are the 99 Names of Allah? )

"And We sent Noah and Abraham, and established in their descendants prophecy and the Book: and some of them are rightly guided, but many are rebellious.
"Then We sent after them our apostles and We sent Jesus the son of Mary, and bestowed on him the Gospel; and We ordained in the hearts of those who followed him compassion and mercy; and monasticism, they invented it. We did not command it...yet We bestowed on those among them who believed, their due reward, but many of them are rebellious." cp. 5:85.VERSES SHOWING THE TORAH TO BE TRUE AT THE TIME OF JESUS:
A1. Mary (Maryam) 19:12, Middle Meccan in -7 AH.
God says, "`Oh Yahya! (John the Baptist) take hold of the Book with might': and We gave him wisdom as a child."A2. The Family of `Imran (Ali `Imran) 3:48, 2-3 AH.
The Angel Gabriel is speaking to Mary about Jesus before Jesus' birth and says: "And he (God) will teach him the book and wisdom and the Torah and the Gospel"A3. The Forbidding (Al-Tahrim) 66:12, 7 AH.
"and Mary (Jesus' mother)...believed in the words of her Lord and His Books"A4. The Family of `Imran (Ali `Imran) 3:49-50, 2-3 AH.
Jesus says, "I have come to you...attesting to (the truth of) what is between my hands of the Torah, and to make lawful to you a part of that which is forbidden to you."A5. The Battle Array (Al-Saff) 61:6, from 3 AH.
"And remember, Jesus, the son of Mary, said: `Oh Children of Israel! I am the apostle of God to you, confirming that which IS between my hands from the Torah...'"A6. The Table (Al-Ma'ida) 5:49, 10 AH.
"And in their footsteps (of Moses and the Jews) We sent Jesus the son of Mary, attesting to (the truth of) the Torah which was between his hands; and We gave him the Gospel - therein is guidance and light and attesting to (the truth of) the Torah which was between his hands: a guidance and an admonition to the righteous."A7. 5:113.
"Then will God say, `O Jesus son of Mary! Recount my favor to you and to your mother when I strengthened you with the Holy Spirit, so that you spoke to the people in childhood and in maturity. Behold! I taught you the Book and Wisdom, the Torah and the Gospel...According to these verses (the last of which came in the final revelation of 10 AH):
John the Baptist (Yahya) was commanded to take hold of the "Book" [A1];
Mary the mother of Jesus believed in God's "Books" [A3];
God promised before Jesus was born to teach him the Torah [A2];
Jesus said that his Gospel "attested to the truth of the Torah between his hands" [A4,A5];
and God attests, in Muhammad's time, that He taught Jesus the Torah [A6,A7].
We can only conclude from the Islamic writings that the True Unchanged Torah was present in the first century when Jesus lived.
