One way a person proves their prophecy is honesty, whether it is from past, present, or future events. In addition to the Quran, there are numerous sayings from the life of Prophet Muhammad that contain prophecies that deal with the near and distant future. Some of them have already come true, others are still waiting to be fulfilled. Hudhaifah, a companion of the Prophet Muhammad, tells us:

“The Prophet made a speech in which he mentioned everything that will come until the last hour without missing anything. Some of us remembered it and some forgot it. After this speech, I used to see events that were mentioned in the speech, but I had forgotten them before they occurred. Then I saw events like a man recognizing someone who was gone and then he sees and recognizes him. ” (Sahieh Al-Bukhari)
There are at least 160 known and confirmed prophecies of the Prophet Muhammad, which were fulfilled during his lifetime and in the first generation after him. [1] We’ll mention a few of them here.

(1) Before the Battle of Badr, the first and decisive confrontation with the pagan Meccans in the second year after the emigration from Mecca 623 AD, the Prophet Muhammad predicted the exact place where each of the Meccan idolaters would find death. Those who witnessed the battle saw with their own eyes how the prophecy came true. [2]

(2) Prophet Muhammad prophesied that the Battle of the Allies (al-Ahzab) would be the last invasion by the Quraish tribe (the Meccan idolaters) who would wage them against the Muslims. It took place in the fifth year of emigration – 626 AD. – and was the last military conflict between the two sides. All Meccans adopted Islam after a few years. [3]

(3) The Prophet informed his daughter Fatima that she was the first member of his family to die after him. These are two prophecies in one: Fatima will survive her father and she will be the first of his household to die after him. Both have been fulfilled. [4]

(4) The prophet Muhammad predicted that Jerusalem would be conquered after his death. [5] The prophecy came true when, according to the Encyclopedia Britannica: „In 638 the Muslim Khalif ´Umar I entered Jerusalem.“ [6]

(5) The Prophet Muhammad prophesied the conquest of Persia. [7] It was conquered by Umar’s commander Sa’ad bin Abi Waqqas. In the Encyclopedia Britannica we read:
“… Raids on the Sasan region were soon undertaken by Muhammad’s Khalifas or deputies in Medina – Abu Bakr and ´Umar ibn al-Khattaab -…. A victory for the Arabs at At-Qadisiyyah in 636/637 was followed by the sacking of Sasanian winter supplies at Ctesiphon on the Tigris. The Battle of Nahavand in 642 completed the conquest of Sasanid. ”[8]

(6) The Prophet Muhammad prophesied the conquest of Egypt. [9] In the words of the Encyclopedia Britannica:
“Amr… invaded 639 with a small army of around 4,000 men (which was later reinforced). The Byzantine forces were put to flight at an astonishing speed and withdrew from Egypt in 642. Different explanations have been given for the speed of conquest. ”[10]

(7) The Prophet predicted the confrontation with the Turks. [11] The first conflict arose under ´Umars Khalifat 22 AH. [12]

(8) The Prophet predicted that Umm Haram, the first woman to take part in a naval expedition, would witness the first naval battle that Muslims would undertake. He also predicted the first attack on Constantinople. [13]
The first naval battle in Muslim history took place in 28 AH under the rule of Mu’awiya. It was testified by Umm Haram, as the Prophet Muhammad had predicted, and Yazid ibn Mu’awiya led 52 AH the first attack on Constantinople. [14]

(9) The prophecy that Rome, Persia, and Yemen would be conquered was made during the Battle of the Allies in 626 AD. [15] made under extreme circumstances, as we are described in the Quran:
“When they came over you from above and below, and when your eyes rolled and your hearts rose in your throat and you had different thoughts about God: then the believers were tested and they were shaken violently. And then the hypocrites and those in whose heart was sickness said, „God and His Messenger only promised us deceit.“ ”(Quran 33: 10-12)

(10) The Prophet Muhammad prophesied an impostor who claimed in the name Speaking of God would die in the hands of a righteous man in Muhammad’s lifetime. [16] Al-Aswad al-Ansi, a deceiver in Yemen who claimed to be a prophet, was killed by Fayruz al-Daylami during the lifetime of the prophet. [17]
There are at least 28 prophecies related to the end of times that are yet to be fulfilled.
These well-documented prophecies are clear evidence of Muhammad’s prophecy. There is no other way that Prophet Muhammad could have known about these events, except that he received this inspiration from God Himself to prove Muhammad’s credibility that he was not a deceiver, but a prophet whom God called so that he can save humanity from hellfire.
