A while ago I received an email concerning a Christian who was advancing the idea that true Prophets must cast out demons. Now, the Christian’s criteria is not consistent as this would lead him to reject John the Baptist and Old Testament Prophets – thus his criteria is flawed. Nevertheless, according to his criteria, he has to accept Prophet Muhammad.
Casting out demons and other signs
According to the Gospels Jesus cast out demons and performed miraculous signs. However, I have stumbled across a tradition where the Prophetic brother of Jesus, Prophet Muhammad, is said to have cast out a demon:
Ibn Abbas said, “A woman brought her son who was possessed. The Prophet stroked his breast and the child vomited up something like a black puppy and was healed… 
Just like Jesus, Prophet Muhammad performed miracles (by the Will of God). Many will be unaware of the Prophet Muhammad performing more recorded miracles than Jesus as “the scholars have collected more than a thousand miracles regarding the Prophet (p)” 
Jesus and Muhammad: a summary
We know both performed wonderful signs by the Will of God and both were Prophets who preached pure monotheism.
I recall preaching the Truth to a Christian leader (a vicar) and the Christian leader remarked that he believed in Muhammad as a Prophet of God. Sadly, some Christians try to make it a case of Jesus “or” Muhammad but the noble and just belief would incorporate Jesus “AND” Muhammad.
Muslims believe in both – you can do this without any conflict by believing both are Prophets of God.
May God send His peace and blessings upon both Jesus and Muhammad.
