Gabriel's words to Muhammad meet five Einstein Method guidelines (1 through 4, and 6). However, there are obvious shortcomings.
Problem #1: Einstein Method guideline number 5 is not met. "A foretold event cannot be self-fulfilled by the prophet’s followers after the prophet has died."
Devout followers of Muhammad exert great effort to convert the world to Islam. Logic alone supports that when followers self fulfill a prophet's words, it is not true prophecy. The words cannot be verified as coming from outside time-space. It is logical to conclude that we are witnessing human effort alone, not divine will.
Just as Muslims are self-fulfilling the Qur'anic verses about spreading Islam worldwide, Christians are self-fulfilling Jesus’ prophecy that the gospel would be preached to the whole world before he returns. Consider Jesus' words:
"This gospel of the kingdom will be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come" (Matthew 24:14).
Both religions have spread worldwide through self-fulfilling prophecy. The Christian faith is said to have 2-billion followers and Islam is said to have 1.2-billion followers.
Problem #2: Guideline number 7 is not met, "Is the foretold event factual? Do people other than devout Muslim followers accept it as fact?"
The foretold event requires the entire world to convert to Islam. However, the vast majority of the world rejects Islam. At this time, it is important to revisit the purpose of the Einstein Method. "Did Muhammad receive words from outside time-space that consistently foretell the future?"
Since Muhammad's prophecy that Islam will conquer all other religions is being self-fulfilled by devout Muslims, we conclude that it is not a true prophecy. The Einstein Method requirements are not met. To refer to these Einstein Method requirements based on reason, logic and science, click here. All intellectually honest people will agree with these conclusions. To disagree and accept this as prophecy requires "blind faith."
Since the words, "Islam will conquer all other religions" is not true prophecy, it cannot be used to analyze Islam.
