How to convince that mohammad (pbuh) is really a messenger?
The Prophet Muhammads Mosque in Madinah.

As soon as he began to recite the Quran and to preach the truth which God had revealed to him, he and h ...more
The noble Quran says:-(61:6) And call6 to mind when Jesus, son of Mary, said: O Children of Israel, I am Allah's Messenger to you, I verify the Torah which has come before me,7 and I give you the glad tiding of a Messenger who shall come after me, his name being Ahmad.8 Yet when he came to them with Clear Signs they said: This is sheer trickery.9
