This Dark Age

A manual for life in the modern world.

By Daniel Schwindt

NOTICE:
This Dark Age is now available in paperback on Amazon. The print version is MUCH cleaner than this online version, which is largely unedited and has fallen by the wayside as the project has grown. If you’ve appreciated my writing, please consider leaving a review on the relevant paperback volumes. The print edition also includes new sections (Military History, War Psychology, Dogmatic Theology).

Miracles in the Islamic tradition

It is worth noting that the Prophet is further distinguished from Christ in that he did not make use of miracles and explicitly refused to perform them. “God has not sent me to work wonders; He has sent me to preach to you. My Lord; be praised! Am I more than a man sent as an apostle?”[1] “I never said that God’s treasures are in my hand, that I knew the hidden things, or that I was an angel. I am only a preacher of God’s words, the bringer of God’s message to mankind.”[2]

The central miracle of Islam, the only one acknowledged by the Prophet, is identical with the Revelation itself, and it is the Koran, since according to Muhammad, such a one as him, who could barely write his own name, could never, except by supernatural aid, produce such a magnificent work.
